It's not the end. It's the beginning. Thank you @roadscape

I appreciate all the work you did! 🌸 @roadscape

Actually the begining is the end , is the begining. Which seems fitting for the current situation you all have gotten yourselves into.

Lots of respect Tim.

You're the person I feel the most for in all of this, seeing how it should be the time to celebrate, use and promote communities, which is such a fantastic addition to our chain, and for which we owe you so much gratitude, rather than the time that we worry about our future.

I really hope we can build a much stronger and more decentralized future for all of us going forward. And thank you so much for all of the fantastic contributions you've made. It has already been a pleasure engaging with you on how to build this place better, and I hope that will continue for many more blocks to come!

communities, which is such a fantastic addition to our chain

really? no, they're a shitty scam

Thank you for your good work (I really like 'communities'). I wish you all the best for the future!

Sucks that you quit your job, but given the circumstances I appreciate your solidarity to the STEEM community. Hopefully you'll join us in our fight to reclaim and preserve our chain from future hostile takeovers.

Thankyou for your amazing open source contributions <3
And massive respect to all of you for having the balls to walk away

@roadscape, we could really do with your witness votes. I hate to have to ask, but I do hope you will consider it

can you send a link to make it easy to vote for witnesses? I don't know where to find it. And vote for witness 21 through 51 right?

thanks for the reply. I never noticed that lol. But my browser wouldn't let my votes stick so I made @theycallmedan my proxy. I've been here 2.5 years and don't understand witnesses as I should. We need to make sure every staked steemian understands and uses all they're votes. Perhaps making it easy and promote really trusted proxies so the steemians don't have to do anything but click one link.

I want to help out with this. Is the proxy thing legitimate? If it is, I'll just go that route as well. Can anyone instruct me on how to do this please?

proxy is perfect, thank you for doing this, and thanks @steemitri for stepping in to help

Thanks for everything you have done for our blockchain and community. Stay strong and take some rest. We will win this battle.

Thank you for all your efforts over the years in realizing Hive Mind and Communities... it's a real shame that this all happened just as Communities was launched.
All the best.
Thank you!


You're the best out of the best out of the best!!!!! 💔

Best wishes roadscape 💫💫💫💫

It's all good! Insanity is a full time job around here now and we have plenty of openings!

On a serious note. Thanks for working hard.

the community loses on this but you did what you had to do ... you guys have have had to deal with a lot in the last short time.

I'd say 'nice to see ya', after such a long silence, however – I regret the circumstances under which you're speaking up. Cheers to you for taking measurable action. You set an excellent example...

Please help us vote in the real witnesses.

And that would be ideal tbh

How do you know who the real witnesses are? I'm asking because I want to know how to help the community.

Anyone not running 22.5

Thank you 4 everything @roadscape.

❤️ see you on the other side. This place wouldn’t exist without you and the community is behind you.

Just a thought, couldn't you guys start a new company that the community would vote into the top spot on the SPS? If we make it through ofc.

Well, this escalated as expected. Come to the PAL Discord. There's still hope.

Oh, this just gets worse. Justin has really misjudged what Steem is all about. I'll buy Steemit back off him for $1. Good luck to you in whatever you do and thanks for your service to Steem.

Thank you for your many contributions! Sending good vibes your way.


If the purchase of steemit was to obtain a development team capable of building and branching a block chain toward the future looks like he missed on that goal.

I look forward to see what team you will join, and hope you continue with work on the steem block chain making it a true decentralized social platform that can be rewarding to users of all stripes and types. The Globalization of steem block chain and it people are what makes steem block chain such a wonderful place.

I know this must have been hard. I know first hand how hard you've worked on hivemind and everything else to bring communities to Steemit, and just after they go live... this. But your work is not unnoticed -- the community here cares deeply and I hope you know that. It's not over.
Take some time to rest, you've earned it.

This must've been super hard. Thank you so much for all your contribution to the platform from the earliest of days. It would've never been the same without you. I also want to thank you for all the help and support over these years. Much respect for your decision, can't imagine how stressful this might've been for you and other devs in light of recent events.

sending you good vibes, thanks for all you have done

We thank you for your hard work Roadscape and the Steem community stands behind you. Immutable Communities would not be possible without you.

The community is behind you.

Well mate, you know that there is room for all ex-Steemit employees here, right? Community would love to have you back.

Sorry things have come to this and I know you have put countless hours into bringing steemit where it is now. Please don't become a stranger. With much respect and hugs...

Thanks a lot for your hard work during all these years. Good luck with your next project!

Sorry to read that @roadscape. The work you made for the Steem blockchain and especially for the just-released communities has been absolutely invaluable.

Hard decision I guess, but with the last days being a shitstorm, this is fully understandable.

You have all my respect!

Thx for your hard work and solidarity, wish we can keep you here maybe through SPS or some other solution.

Thank you for ALL that you've done for Steem @roadscape - we're just getting used to Communities and now this happens. I'm proud of the decision you've made, I'm sad you've had to make it. I hope we'll meet again on the Steem, wherever that is, as long as it's with the right people. Cheers.

I can understand very well

Thank you for all your work.

If the community takes back the blockchain - would you be interested in steem development funded by sps?

Thank you for your good work and much success.

Thank you very much from your valuable content, Sir!

God bless you saving the community :D

This is why I voted for Sun's witnesses

This is why we are moving to Hive. Failing to grasp that interpersonal communications aren't valued by the letter, word, or paragraph, but by what they mean to folks pretty much sums you up.

@roadscape's resignation is very meaningful to folks that care about this community, because of how much he has done to enable them to become that community. When they upvote those six deeply meaningful words, they're not valuing the letters in the words, but the person that wrote them.

Your failure to value this community and to prefer counting beans is best illustrated by your pandering to Steem's would be overlord. According to what I have read about the airdrop of Hive incoming, that support combined with this comment regarding it should safely exclude you from that airdrop, and hopefully our community.


Steemit raped, DPoS raped, Community raped.

Thanks a lot for everything you have done.

Lots of repsect. It must be a hard decision.

Great respect for your decision

You ware one of my favorite steemit inc employe!

Sorry to hear this. It must have been an extremely difficult decision. Would you come to the PAL discord server to talk to the community?

Big respect

Thank you for all your hard work on the STEEM chain! You resigned with integrity intact! Keep your head up and come back stronger than ever.

Respect 🙌
#steem community behind you guys who sweat hard to where it is now.

thanks for all your work @roadscape

Do you think it is a future for steem?

Thank you so much for all of your hard work! Mad props and respect!

Where's a clean garbage can? I need to put something on my head to contain my screams while I wait for the potential end of steem.

Thank you very much for you work. The community is with you Roadscape!
You were part of the huge value of our chain!

Thank you for all you’ve done for the Steem blockchain.

And all you’ll do for it in the future? 🤞

Thank you for everything you have done. I hope you get a nice break now.

Yes, VERY quick update...
What was your position?
Must have sucked to see all your hard work burned and thrown away.

It's well with you. Thanks you so much for everything 🙏💯💓🙏

You have done some amazing work for Steem! Thank you for that and for your position.

Thanks for everything man, community have your back

Can't even imagine what's going on behind the scenes at Steemit Inc., all I can is that it must've been hard to detach from something that must've been more then solely a job. My positivity towards you!

It's really unfortunate to hear you had to choose between your job and your integrity. I don't think anyone should have to put through that decision. I wish you all the best with your future endeavours

Thanks for supporting steem to this far.

Respect! Your sacrifice is valued by the whole Steem community.

Please vote your stake for the legitimate witnesses so we can take back Steem from the Sun tyranny.

Thanks for sticking to your morals and everything you have done for the community. Help us take up arms and defend our castle.

respect, dude

Are there any devs left at Steemit now?

All of us, planktons,minnows, orcas an whales of the steem blockchain salute you, support an sympathy will be yours from the community.

Hopefully life will settle down for you. Rest, regroup and come back stronger.

Thank you very much for informing us.

Many thanks for all your hard work.

Ps: please, consider upvoting community witnesses.

I would like to express a sincere THANK YOU to you for going above and beyond in inspiring other members of our community.
You are worth so much more than this token of appreciation for your hard work and dedication. Thanks again for setting yourself as a good example to others who hope to become an asset to the Steemit Community. You will surely be missed by all of us who appreciated your hard work and support 😊

It would be great to see the devs working together under a new management team. I hope you guys are still eager to bring SMT to the Steem Blockchain.

Good for you... you are too good for that shit show

😞 I hope he won't be out of a job for a long time.
Thanks for your performance

Sorry you're leaving under these circumstances, but understood. May the road rise up to meet you.

The right step!

Obviously everybody was expecting this... We don't like it but we understand.
Thank you for your work. I hope your skills and drive can contribute to a better version of this community in the future.

Thanks for supporting our community. Sucks you had to quit your job.

Best of luck mate. Thanks for everything.

Another one bites the death.

Welcome back to steem.

Will there be anyone left there at all?

Good luck. I hope you are happy. 💕

Hello, why do many cases that I have helped people register on Steemit, never receive the access codes after registration?
The message always says we will study, but there is never a follow-up. Do Steemit have any problems ?

Cheers up, it's just the beginning, don't give up, thanks for ur activity!

I really appreciate your effort in making steem a better place to be. I know that decision is hard, i only hope it is for the best. Wish you best of luck in all your endeavor.

Amazing idea of the Post

Do you consider a comeback?

thanks for letting us know. hope you find another project that becomes what you envisioned for Steem.

Good luck on your next endeavor !
Respect to all of the things you did for the platform.

Congratulations @roadscape!
Your post was mentioned in the Steem Hit Parade in the following categories:

  • Upvotes - Ranked 10 with 516 upvotes
  • Comments - Ranked 5 with 122 comments
  • Pending payout - Ranked 3 with $ 151,5

Strange how that happens. People try to protect the platform and now there's a stream of resignations. All of them with near carbon copy resignation posts.

Nothing to see here, right?

@roadscape. Thank you for all you have done for Steem, and for your honourable decision to resign from Steemit Inc.

Please consider helping to develop the Matrix-8 Platform. This is a multi-level governance real time democrity, which could not only help Steem governance enormously, but also help to "save the world". More info here:
