Now rather than running the hexo-server instance & reverse proxying this with nginx, I'm generating the static files through hexo and serving this folder through nginx. This has dramatically reduced the CPU resources required for running the website.

The site should be much speedier. I could squeeze some further optimizations out of nginx through Google's pagerank/pagespeed module, however when I last had to update the letsencrypt ssl cert it was overwritten and led to several hours downtime.

Witness vote changes

  • Removed powerpicswitness
  • Added vote for grow-op, subways, and xxoxx.

Any plans to make your own smoke website like mine? Pretty decent visitor stats for a short lived blog, in a year or two's time it'll probably have quite a large audience which is great for smoke in the end. On the down side I've made nothing from the affiliates, but that's not the primary purpose of the website to be honest and won't factor in its uptime.

Any suggestions for the site? Any plans to run your own witness? Know anyone who might want to run a witness?

Cheers

No plans for our own website as of now but there is one project I currently am running on Steem and in the process of revamping to focus on something other than just curation I would like to see happen on this chain as well. I think it could use it at least.

Still not announced on Steem yet while finalizing some last things but after giving it a trial run I wanna attempt it here too, will post about it when the time comes.

Thanks for the witness vote, your site was pretty nice when I checked it a few weeks ago! (in case you were wondering who that user from Malta was :P)

I’ve got my eyes on you 😍

Pretty creepy thing to say considering my last sentence. :P

·

Haha 😂

You know the best @d00k13 is always a creeper 😎

Finally got my witness up an running.
Took some time as i had to switch laptops due to the old one dying on me.

But now all up and running.

Will take a look at your code later on, perhaps i can come up with some ideas what to do with it ;)

·

cool, keep us posted with what you get up to 👍

Sorry for delay, I saw your post just now as I did not feel well Sunday and I was offline.

I started my own bog Smoke Crypto World, long time ago and I stopped to use it since feb 2019 due some healthy problem ( A lot of work is needed as you know ). But I hope to be able in near future to active it again !

You did a great job and I am so happy to see the big traffic in Romania and as I told you in past. I am sure your website will have large audience in short time.

I stop by the site every so often...there for awhile it was stuck on 7/30...I’ll have to stop by and check out the updates.

You need to ctrl+f5 refresh sometimes, I really aught to optimise the caching 🤔

Thinking of setting up a Smoke.io related blog on blogger or Tumblr.... I have to be careful on blogger since many of my experimental blogs have been shut down.

·

I’m running a self-hosted WordPress blog already. More about that when it has a little bit more content body.

WordPress.com is rather laidback about cannabis too btw. As long as don’t sell. But it’s not as easy to share content on as on Tumblr.

Is there a plugin available for others to import smoke network content to wordpress themselves?

·
·

No, currently mine’s a normal blog with cannabis content and links to manually selected Smoke.io content. Think a blog like kottke.org, but presented in magazine format.

Totally geared at getting feed follows and entering the social game for retweets. Will write a post about it in some weeks, when it has become “presentable” and has some exclusive longer format posts too.

I would definitely start making some videos to share on YouTube and Weedtube. I am making the most income these days from HideoutTV.... I upload my videos to YouTube, convert to MP4 and then up,lad to Hideout TV.... people earn Bitcoin for simply watching your videos so they get a ton of views. I make .20 cents per 1,000 views.... and $109 US $ in my 1st month. Video + Ads is what it’s all about. https://hideout.tv/viewerSignup.php?refer=100525

Great! we are working on a cannabis meetup in Nigeria soon. We will talk about your blog there also! maybe you should also feature some of our content on your site! great Job buddy!

I love your site, I tell my friends about it whenever I get the opportunity! Great post:D

Excellent, good to see unique interest 👌

Any word from any of the disabled witnesses? I have a feeling a few may not know it's down, for example xtetrahedron, emeraldtreasury, smokeasaurusrex, BeyondBitcoinCas, CoffeeBuds, superclutch, bbtc, chronocrypto, nathansternx, moonunit & lucashunter.

None of the above posted why their witness node would be shut down.

I have in the past DM’ed xtetrahedron, smokeasaurusrex, and BBTCC without reply. Smokeasaurusrex still actively curates so guessing his non-reply may have been by choice since he’s otherwise rather responsive (and also in the BBQ-Iguana/BBTC circle).

CoffeeBuds now manages WeedCash, and has (almost) fully downpowered and dumped his SMOKE. Chronocrypto is also all in on WC it seems.

It seems Superclutch just disappeared after he didn’t get his own compile to work. He was active in the witness TGram but since didn’t find any help their (kept blaming Smoke code)... he seems to have gone AWOL.

Xtetrahedron... hope he hasn’t ended up with issues in India. Last time I checked his soundcloud was inactive as well. :/

He did this before, but had like traveled from south america to india somehow, so he might be way off the grid, could be worth reaching out?

Chronocrypto just left the smoke discord server also.

Are we having any problem with this guy's? I noticed jackdub does not write here anymore. Kinda weid.

Good point, does anyone know what happened to @Jackdub?

·

I have seen his post sometime a week ago on Weedcash. I think he is still around but am not sure why he didn´t post for Smoke.io for a while.

Hmm well I hope he comes back.. Maybe he's taken a tolerance break? 🤔
