I was just asked the following:
Hey there! I am constantly being asked to remove my vote for you. Can you please update me and others? Are you going to go on? Are you working on it? Are you leaving us? I tell people that I wait if anything changes. But now that I've got this question way too many times, I thought I should simply ask you.
If you are pressuring people to remove their vote for me then shame on you. My witness is still running, I'm still maintaining the hotbox to make witnessing as easy as possible. Yes, I don't past but that's because I don't have any cannabis related topics to talk about.
My skills are technical and I have used them to help this community. If you have issues with my absence in this discord maybe ask me instead of pushing others to remove their votes. I told everyone weeks ago that I will not be using discord as often as I used to and everyone is free to message me on Matrix/Riot.
If my contributions are not wanted that's ok I don't have to develop or run a witness at a loss for this platform. If you need me, or have something to say please DM me.
Oh and no I have no plans to leave Smoke, to shut down my witness, or killing development of the HotBox. I look once a week for any update to smokeD so that anyone using the hotbox will get updates as fast as I can update the Docker file.
If it was a mistake then I apologies for the message. I just wanted everyone to be clear that I am not leaving my witness. Smoke is the first niche site on a blockchain and has a lot of potential.
