Hey Newbie, do not be like me

in #ctp9 months ago

Sharing a lesson I learned.
I was being very sporadic on posting & upvoting here. (very sporadic)
So I got this idea to spend some time upvoting posts I liked.

Well, I was 100% upvoting.
BAM upvote
BAM good post upvote
BAM 100% here & here and here too.

And then......it happened.
ERROR - not enough power to post.
WHAT?
check my power almost all gone.
ok. send steem to steem power
ERROR - not enough power.
Oh what the????? now stuck for a day
What to do, what to do?

Well, i bought some bitcoin, converted it to steem, power it up to power.
I am back with power to be active again.

Lesson learned: Post & comment more.
Pay attention to voting weight
And watch power levels.

no power is no bueno.

Sort:  

LOL Ahhh yeah, the voting power dilemma!

Hey man, glad you got some Steem powered up! Welcome to the addiction!

lol, yeah I have enough steem powered up these days to let me post, have only got that error once in the past couple of months, and thats because I also post madly on Appics and CTP Taklk, and had posted in a couple of other tribes as well.

Have enough ctp tokens powered up to be upvoting , but its the steem volume you want powered up for posting :)
on one hand its a dilemna when you get that error, on the other hand it means you are being active :)

Good stuff. 100% upvote, lol. :)

That could be a problem lol

Yeah that needs to be kept in check, and nice that you powered up, stay awesome.

I went through a very similar experience but for some reasons I don't remember I could buy crypto. Jon came to the rescue and sent power.
