Reduction in the scope/topics of chainBB for beta

It's been about a week and I've talked to a number of people interested in chainBB as a forum solution. There's been some great feedback on the good and the bad, and I'm happy to see a few dedicated users.

The underlying feedback I've gotten from almost everyone points to one thing - it needs to be simpler to start with. There's just too much going on, too many forums, and too much to browse. The lesson I'm taking from here is: just because you can do something, doesn't mean you should right away.

For those of you who stumbled upon this post because you're a follower of mine, I'm still kicking, finally getting settled at the new place after the move, and starting to push a few projects hard. The last two weeks have been the most intense steem-related (and this-post-related) work I've done this year. I must say - it's nice to be back at the wheel.

jesta witness update - jan/feb 2017

Checking in and providing a status update since it's been far too long.

I have been somewhat inactive (posting) since the Holiday and wanted to summarize the last few months. The reason for the inactivity has been due to multiple very time consuming reasons - with one being a move across the US that started with an unknown destination. A move was needed, that's all I knew. I'm happy to say that some direction has finally been set and decisions made, the move is finally in progress, and I'll be settling down into a new home early to mid March.
