Hey steem peoples, I have a question and a request.
First the question is, my father has told me that he's had 4 times now I think where he has upvoted his entry on the czechglobalhosts contest here on steem and the value of the post went down right as he did and he feels like his upvote had something to do with the value going down.
Now he's worried that upvoting his own entries in contests could be detrimental and give him an even less chance to win.
I personally am thinking that it was just the price/value of steem going down in general and that it happened at the exact moment he upvoted his posts and is a coincidence, however... It's happened to him I think 4 times now and he thinks there might be something more going on?
So, I wanted to ask if there was some kind of new update or some rule or technical aspect I didn't know about which could explain that? Maybe a bug or a glitch?
I don't keep that up to date and informed on all the technical things as much as I used to and I wasn't able to give him a good answer other than how I thought it was probably a coincidence with the value of steem fluctuating.
Yet he claims it happened 4 times now I think and immediately in response to him upvoting to the point he doesn't think it was a coincidence.
Also, the second thing and the request was, my father entered one of the recent czechglobalhosts contest and I think he's only like 20 cents away from winning, so if you could check out the post and if it's an image you like would you mind giving it an upvote to help him win? Thanks if so! I'll put the link below.
PS Here is the image of his that he entered, it's quite a dramatic one!
