Sunset on EXHAUST

in EXHAUST7 months ago

Hello everyone,

After some lengthy consideration, I have decided to end this project. I'll admit that I've lost motivation and energy to work on and support this project.

I'll be stopping the website services this weekend, and will continue to payout the curation rewards owed to delegators, and the weekly exercise-based rewards distributed on Sunday for activities that have been posted up until the project is closed.

Thank you for your support and interest.

Cheers, and be well.



Thanks for creating such a great project! I've immensely enjoyed my time with @exhaust and it has 100% sometimes been the deciding factor between couching it up and getting out there. Thanks so much for building it all for us! Super appreciate it!

Cheers, @aussieninja! Appreciate the support, enthusiasm, and good vibes -- as usual!

Thanks for the message and best wishes for your next project.

Thanks! And it may return in a better form, one day, when I've got more time to dedicate to it.

You've done an amazing job Mark and your platform has allowed me to meet some amazing people. I really appreciate your hard work and at the same time understand a project like this can be difficult to keep going as well. Keep in touch and wish you all the best for the future.

Thanks,, for being around since the early days and always being a strong motivator! Very inspiring. Wish you and nothing but the best!

I've only been a user for a week but have enjoyed the competition and the chance to try and get to the leaderboard. Thank you and good luck with any future projects you undertake.

Sorry to cut your experience short! Thanks for participating!

Sad to see the project end, but I can definitely understand your decision. I enjoyed using the platform, it was good motivation, and the rewards were a great bonus, especially for a small newbie account. Thanks!
I'll try and post my last exhaust workout tomorrow if I'm able to go for a run as planned.
I guess we should remove our delegations. Not that mine was really significant, but I can probably transfer it to some other projects, like maybe @runningproject.
Take it easy and good luck!

@manuvert(1/1) gave you LUV. H-E tools | connect | <><

Given the current emission rate of LUV pushing 500/day, increases to required LUV levels will likely be forthcoming.

I definitely recommend contributing to @runningproject

What bad news... It's a shame that a project like this is lost but I understand that its administration is tough.
I wish you all the best in your future endeavors and look forward to keeping in touch with you.

Thanks, @toofasteddie! At the very least, the project in its current state is cumbersome to maintain. I might bring it back in an improved form some time in the future. I wont delete my project repos, so it'll be around for renewal / upgrades potentially.

I'll still be around for time to time. Cheers!

It is a bad notice for our lives on Hive. Thank you anyway for your hard and great work. If one day you will decide to return here, write us. Stay safe and exhaust. A long and beautiful life to you @mstafford :)

Really enjoyed it while it lasted. Thanks for everything and hope you'll come back bigger and stronger!

It was really sad to hear that you would close this project but I really enjoyed working with you. I have been with you for more than two months now. I got a lot of good support from this site and saw that you support people a lot The project that you are about to launch must do something good

Ahh will miss you mstafford / exhaust! Completely understand your reasoning though. I really enjoyed the platform, found it very motivating AND met some cool people via it so thank you for all of that.
Best of luck in the future xx

Thanks for your work with this @exhaust (mstafford!). I enjoyed using during my first few months here on Hive and it really helped me get in the habit of sharing my exercise on here. I !LUV 'd it! Thank you.

And a question: will you still be keeping this community open and moderating it? I'm curious if we can and should keep posting our exercise in here?

@consciouscat(3/5) gave you LUV. H-E tools | connect | <><

Given the current emission rate of LUV pushing 500/day, increases to required LUV levels will likely be forthcoming.

I'm very sorry to hear that, but I can understand it is a responsibility to run a service like this. I'll just have to report my runs in other ways. Wishing you all the best.

Thanks, @Steevc -- have always appreciated your support and patronage.

It's been my pleasure. I will stay in touch with some of the fitness community anyway. We can use Hive communities for that. Thanks for all your hard work.

When you do find another alternative please let us know. Would love to join something like this. I know you're pretty active as well.

I log in Strava, so I will just post about my runs with screenshots from that. Exhaust was fun, but not essential. There are running and other communities on Hive you can post to.

Please let me know other communities. I am aware of Strava but I don't think there's any possible crypto reward for it right?

No, Strava has no crypto rewards, but that's not why people run, cycle etc :)

I see you were posting from Exhaust, but not adding any information about what you did just to get the automatic vote. I think that is part of the reason the developer gave up. His generosity was being exploited. You will have to earn your rewards by being interesting to people in future :) Don't just chase the rewards, be social.

I workout for my health more than anything else. The peanuts I get from posting on xhaust or on crypto platforms don’t get me anywhere in the western world.

I have just found a discipline with it to log in and reflect on my workouts. It could be easily misunderstood as gaming the system which I don’t blame you or anyone else for thinking like that.

The way I look at it is, I workout anyways and I want to keep a record of it anyways so why not get some peanuts for maintaining the records :)

Well you are likely to make less now. I enjoy writing about my runs and others seem to enjoy it. We each chose our own path.

You could use Actifit to get something.

I am aware of actifit but it looks like you need to have some sort of a device like an Apple Watch or Fitbit to log your steps. I'll explore either way. Thanks!

Thx for all the effort u put to make sure people benefit from this project,we hope u bring more creative content like this in the future.

Appreciate the kind words. Have enjoyed reading your blogs / articles. Keep doing what you're doing.

I may be back when I find myself with more time and energy.

I will continue to post here because I don't know where else to post this kind of stuff. We'll look forward to your return should that day come.

It is a pity not to be able to continue publishing my activities on this page, I had become very fond of it, I really liked it a lot.

I want to thank you for all the support you gave and how exciting it was.

I hope to be able to be present and to be able to enjoy some other new project you have. With much sadness I say goodbye, see you soon.

Thanks for the kind words. it has been nice having yourself and others participating. The project may return in the future in better form, once I manage to find some more time and energy to support.

was off sick and logged on to post today's run! i was deeply disappointed! But i will still keep getting exhausted! Was good while it lasted! The best fitness dapp we had! Thanks for some good times!
