Hi, I've had a couple posts pay out via likwid lately, and I clicked your link to more information.
I'm curious.... why am I receiving this service? I didn't sign up for it, and according to the information here, that's the only way a post's payouts can be modified this way.
Another question is was I charged for this service which I didn't want?
Please respond. Thanks.

I'm a bot. I detect haiku.

I have no idea, who created this silly, hilarious bot

02.08.2019 12:29

Yeah, it is.
One of the posts this happened to was a post for a charity project I run (called Mission: Agua-Possible). I always give 100% of the post payout to the project, right down to the decimal point. Having a 3rd party come in and take part of that payout, which was earmarked to bring water back to thirsty victims of the crisis in Venezuela, is upsetting. I've been careful for nearly a full year, to make sure every satoshi from each post ends up going to the project. Now, somebody's pocketing some of those funds, and I don't seem to have any control over it. Makes me feel uneasy.

Can you link to the post?

Is it possible that someone who commented on your post set liqwid as a comment beneficiary, and so the bot was responding to their comment with the default notification it uses, which uses the term 'post'.

02.08.2019 10:11

Thanks for your reply. I wonder, how could a stranger's comment cause a change in how my post pays out? In any case, this issue has occurred on all my video posts on 3Speak in the past 3 weeks. The one that particularly bothers me is here, because as I mentioned, that's a charity I run, and every single microsatoshi has been calculated and earmarked for the cause. I understand why such a service charges a fee, that's not my problem. My problem is that the fee has taken money from a charity, against the wishes of the contributors. It's a small amount, but it's the principle of it. I don't want to make trouble for anyone, but this service should not be triggering accidentally, because real world problems like mine can result. Hopefully somebody can sort it out so this doesn't become a bigger problem in the future.

Do you use a template or anything when you make those specific 3speak posts? You are positive @liqwid is not a beneficiary of those posts?

03.08.2019 01:20

I assume my answer to those questions is "no", since I don't even know what a template is, or what beneficiaries of posts are.
I'm just a content-creator on Steem who recently started also uploading to 3Speak. The 3Speak posts are being liquidated by that service (which I've never interacted with until now). My other posts aren't being liquidated (they are paying out normally).

03.08.2019 04:21

Did you ever get this sorted?

27.09.2019 08:14

Partially, yeah. I've heard that liqwid is "forced on" for all 3speak posts. So there's no way to use 3Speak without giving part of your money to liqwid (essentially a payday loan advance) and burning 3% of it to @null, which is after the curators have taken their half, and the whales have taken their pillage share if your post didn't make at least $11.
In other words, you'll be lucky to see 1/4 of the payout showing on your 3speak posts.

27.09.2019 21:05

Well, the 3% is negligible, a fair compromise considering you get the SP rewarded in liquid STEEM.. my opinion though.

3Speak charges a monthly fee to upload though, doesn't it? As well do they still take 10% from your author rewards right off the bat, so technically likwid would only be receiving 100% of your 90% of author rewards (or 40% of your creator reward, however you want to look at it) ?

Better off storing your videos on IPFS and embedding them yourself at that rate :/

28.09.2019 02:55

True. I mean I'm happy they exist, and hope others pop up doing something similar (so there's more of a free market of options), but I think I should learn about storing vids on IPFS. Been meaning to anyway. (If you have any good links or advice please feel free to mention.)

There is @finex which does the same as @likwid, not sure on the fee though..

That reminds me of another trick I'll share with you, in case you use steem-engine :)

To withdraw/deposit to steem-engine and be charged a fee of 0.25% instead of 1%, transfer a minimum of 1 STEEM/STEEMP to @steemfinex. If you want an even cheaper fee, you can save 0.01% for each hour you are willing to wait on the transfer.

So, send the number of hours to wait in memo.
For example to deposit STEEM to steem-engine, transfer 1 STEEM to @steemfinex with memo: 25 for example, which means in 25 hours @steemfinex will transfer 1 STEEMP to your steem-engine wallet at no fee (25 x 0.01% = 0.25% so you saved the entire fee)

To withdraw STEEMP from steem-engine to get STEEM, just transfer 1 STEEMP to @steemfinex, with say 12 as the memo, in which case you'd be charged a 0.13% fee and in 12 hours the STEEM minus the fee will be in your STEEM wallet.

You can send any amount as long as it's above 1 STEEM/STEEMP you won't be refunded if you send less, they will keep it as donation.

They will refund you though if you transfer and they have no liquidity to fill the order, this usually happens when you want it done right away (no memo, fee of 0.25%) but sometimes it can happen if you wanted to wait, in which case the refund would happen when your order expires (so if you put 12 in the memo and they can't fill the order by the 12th hour, you'd be refunded at the 12th hour)

Hope you understand all that!Posted with

I'm still getting docked, and still don't know how to stop it. They took funds from my charity project, for example. I don't want liquid STEEM. I power everything up.

How would this effect earning other tokens, for example when tagging a post with spt to earn spt (splintertalk) tokens when posting about Splinterlands/SteemMonsters?

29.07.2019 20:57

They don't support beneficiary so they're not affected
