Yesterday steemit shut down without warning, I believe many heavy hobby users are not used to it. I‘ve been writing on steemit for more than one year, and I’ve been in this situation more than once.
I remember the first time I encountered a situation where I couldn’t use Steemit, a large number of users couldn’t post or do any activity because of bandwidth issues. The Steemit team tried to improve the way of computing to solve this problem.
I was not on Steemit too long at that time. I suddenly encountered this kind of situation and felt frustrating as I was rejected outside the door. Fortunately, I could still browse posts at Steemit, so I read some posts talking about the cause of the problem and the efforts of Steemit team, and then calm down and wait.
After that, it seems that there was a major paralysis, steemit was attacked. I do not really remember the details, only remember I am very panic at that time. I’m afraid that the attack will cause major losses. All I can do is constantly refresh the page.
By then I was already a heavy hobby user. Writing on Steemit and interacting with others has become the most important leisure activity after work. It was suddenly deprived as if the world had suddenly shut down and there was an anxiety of being at a loss.I felt that my reaction was ridiculous at the time, but after Steemit returned to normal, I saw many friends who made a statement and felt that they were the same as me. I couldn’t help but laugh. it turns out that there are so many severe patients like me!
This time the Steemit shuts down for more than 10 hours, and I find myself in another state.
I have been addicted to Steemit for more than a year, although I dare not say that I have achieved something, but I have accumulated some friends who we appreciate each other. Therefore, I ask for more and more on my articles. In fact, there is a lot of preparation work before writing. For example, editing video, post-product photos. In order to enrich the content of the article, I will search a lot of information on the Internet before starting writing. So, not being able to use Steemit, it doesn’t have much impact on me, just do the preparatory work as usual.
The only thing I feel uneasy about is that I can’t reply to the supporters who commented under my post as soon as possible. You are all my most precious friends.
This time Steemit shut down, it is said that it is due to the fork HF20. Since I am on Steemit, there is no obvious improvement except for changing the logo. On the contrary, some third-party dapps are quite vigorous. After waiting for such a long time, the Steemit team finally have some action. This time, I don’t feel flustered. Instead, I was full of expectation. Although I heard that the changes in HF20 were not as far-reaching as HF19. But after all, it is a step forward and worth celebrating.
