Ok, what the crazy lady said!
Unless I miss my mark, there are some things that need changing around here.
I'm sure I will miss a couple, put them in the comments, if anybody bothers to make any.
Curation is much better, but far from perfect.
I think making day one gamified and paid in 5 days while days 2 through 7 give linear rewards and pays in 7 days will serve us better.
I'd go so far as to add days 8 through 30 just to attract more authors that expect perpetual rewards.
I mean, do the work once, get paid for life is a great deal, but the blockchain needs finality, ergo, these voting windows.
We had 24hr and 30day windows originally, but that feature was changed by folks no longer here, mostly.
It is up to us what we want to make of curation, and its rewards.
Let your voice be heard!
I think we should have a window for the newbs before they can cashout.
Here before long we are gonna have more users than we really want, at least as far as posting for rewards go.
More straws sucking from the common pool equals less for each of us.
In fiat terms that won't be a problem, we will still get rewarded handsomely in fiat, but I'm trying to get more hive, which requires a lower price and fewer authors.
Higher price equals smaller payouts in hive, but larger fiat values for everybody.
It's a trade off.
At some point attaining the level of dolphin will be excruciatingly expensive.
For those of you that weren't here during the run to 8usd, let me tell you, at 5usd the amount of hive you get and the influence it gives starts to look puny.
I wouldn't expect hive to ever hold more than 5usd, if blogging and influence on the pool is the only draw.
What defi gives us is, of course, limited only by demand.
Speaking of, if you want to diversify your portfolio, and stop relying on the pool for rewards, I'd advise you look at staking your swap.hive in the diesel pools paying rewards.
These are a chicken and egg thing.
Nobody will have trust for the pool until it has lots of liquidity.
That is up to us that trust in the hive ecosystem to make the pools large enough to attract outside resources.
But what do I know, I'm just some random hobo on the interwebz.
You might want to ask your dad before putting any eggs in any baskets.

These are public rooms managed by private people for the benefit of everybody using this blockchain.
What they do is voluntary, but openly public.
Don't abuse their willingness to work for the collective for what little we give them, eh?
Without them, none of this exists.
When you go through these rooms catching up on 'the community', be sure to look for the detective, and add your detective, too!
