Well That Didn't Work!

A couple of weeks ago, I took a break from rewarding posts to to get my voting mana percentage up. At the time, Hive said it would take just short of 2 day to get my voting mana fully charged.

After 2 days, I checked. I still needed 27 hours to get to 100%.

I waited 2 more days and I still need just over 24 hours. This entire time I had given no rewards.

After 2 weeks of giving no rewards, I still needed just over a day to get to 100%. Then it dawned on me I participate in an automatic curation. So, the whole time I was trying to completely fill my voting mana, I was rewarding multiple posts automatically.

Oh well, the best laid plans don't always work and this was one. I really did not want to stop participating in the curation train so I decide to live with a maximum 80% voting mana.

I am back to rewarding posts again which makes me feel a lot better.

A couple of question

  1. Is the requirement to make Dolphin still 5000 Hive? I reached 5000 on July 1st and am not a Dolphin. Maybe it takes a while to be recognized.

  1. Is there a way to encode a video in 3Speak and not have it show up as a post? I have tried omitting title, tags, and community and the video still shows up as a post. Or is it better to always use 3Speak to create the post?

Thanks to everyone for your comments.

See You At The Bank,
Bob Caine

That is annoying when we miss things that should be obvious, lol

As far as Dolphin goes, the number continues to slowly rise over time. I have found nowhere where it is stated, I just know that I had transferred in enough funds to make my HP total around 5700.00.
I think the recent threshold is like 5400. I am not exactly sure. Hopefully, someone much smarter than me on these things will comment and update us.

Maybe @arcange will read this and fill us in.

The bottom line, keep stacking and staking the best you can.

Thanks for your comment John. @ironshield says it takes 10,000,000 vests. I only have 9,148k.

Well, the same thing happened to me too. Until I remembered I was in several voting trails. So I removed the trail for a month to recalibrate. Then I carefully considered my voting percentage I was giving to each. In the end, I decided to remove myself from the trails until my HP was higher. I was delegating over 3/4 of my HP, so my mana took nearly 5 days to replenish.

Thanks for sharing.

I just made a post on this. Dophin status is bestowed upon anyone with 10 Million vests. That used to be 5K HP years ago, but these days it's around 5.62K HP.

You can check your VESTS (HP) on hivebuzz.me

It's a bit more: ~5486 HP.
It changes over time and you can check it in my daily stats in section 8 - Distribution.

You're welcome @rcaine

BTW, may I ask you to support the HiveSQL proposal? It lost its funding recently and your help would be much appreciated.
You can do it on Peakd, ecency, Hive.blog or using HiveSigner

Thank you!

Glad to know your mana is back :) Regarding your questions, Dolphin might be more than 5k HP. Not sure. I read sometime ago that it is above that range. As to encoding video, I have no idea yet hehe.

Oh!

Anyway, it is good to hear that you found out the reasons for not getting the mana recovered despite stopping manual votes.

Advance congratulation on being a dolphin.

I thought that if you are voting with under 80% you are wasting parts of vp, I should try myself and see how much is a vote worth at 90% compared to 70% let's say.

Have a wonderful Monday! Voted on ListNerds!

Let me know the results. That would be good information to know. Thanks for your comment.

I won't go any lower, for now, so: First vote vas done with 91.77% vp and the second one 82% vp, the difference is 6 points here, and the lower you go with your vp percentage, the weaker your vote will be, and the differences will be a lot higher if you have a higher HP than mine. I think there are some articles around showing that voting under 80% is not worth it as you are losing rewards on the way.
