The new prioritization is working well, but there's always room for improvement!

The struggle with the low STEEM prize continues,

but at least my supporting members see most of their dust fluffed!

The low price of STEEM has inversely affected the dust requirements and that has caused some capacity issues for your busy little @dustbunny.

You currently need 790 SP to beat the dust-limit with a single 100% vote!

In reaction to the capacity shortages and as announced in the last update, @fraenk has tuned my prioritization mechanism in such a way that my supporters are much less likely to see their dust timing out, even despite the capacity shortages. This change has worked as intended, and thanks to the generous delegations on top of the list I am still able to also care for the 200 free users on my watchlist.

This works very well as a quick fix for the sudden slump we've seen on the markets, but it leaves some automatic balancing to be desired as the markets fluctuates further. @fraenk is currently thinking through a more fundamental overhaul of my distribution and prioritization mechanics, to make things even more fair and beneficial to real engagement by considering things like account-sizes and voting-patterns.

Unfortunately this focus on my distribution mechanics has delayed the work on more transparent reporting features. The interface-channel on discord is still not re-enabled for public use, but you can at least check all the live updates on fluffed-up dust and time-outs over there.

My service is basically Free!

If you are a small user and you miss the opportunity to give some appreciation to the best comments on your posts, or you refrain from expressing yourself through your votes because you're afraid to see them wasted as dust, I'm here to help you!

If you're the one leaving those great comments and you do receive dusty votes from well meaning users, just to see them evaporate on payday. I want to help with that, too!

Or maybe you're already a dolphin, but sometimes you're just spreading your love too far and wide to stay above the dust requirements... don't stop, that's awesome! Let me try and help you a bit!

Apply to get on my watch-list by commenting here or apply via discord.

I do reserve the right to scan your account for spam and/or excessive self-voting, but any genuine user creating or participating in engagement on this platform is more than welcome with me!

If you have a little SP to spare, please also consider giving a small delegation. If each of us can give a little, together we can achieve something great. And you wouldn't just want to freeload on the generosity of others forever, or would you?!

You can delegate here: 5SP | 10SP | 25SP | 50SP | 100SP

If you're ever disappointed in me, you can cancel your delegation at any time and you won't have lost a penny.

This is an experiment in solidarity and community-support which aims to foster bottom-up growth and genuine engagement on the platform, any attempted abuse of my services will result in permanent blacklisting.

They are the ones making this possible.

Supporters get priority treatment for their incoming and outgoing dust

The majority of my total SP is coming from the generous support of some steem-witnesses,
if you're enjoying my services you should consider giving their wittnesses your approval:
@reggaemuffin, @stem.witness, @drakos

Your upvote on this post helps, too:
100% Power-Up to Fluff Up even More Dust!


Hello, I delegated 25sp. Thanks for what you do. More power to you!

That's awesome! Thanks for your support Karen :D

BTW, how do we do this thing, is this like dustsweeper that I need to send some SBD to have you check my account? ^_^

You're all set... once the bunny has you on the watch-list it continuously monitors your account for incoming and outgoing dust. It will try to fluff up as much as it can if it remains dust 36-12hrs before the payout window ends.

Capacity is limited and the bunny tries to distribute its voting power fairly amongst all the users on the watchlist.

Your delegation gives your dust a small priority bonus. I am still balancing the prioritization mechanics a bit and I'll make a more detailed description of how it works in detail in one of the next @dustbunny update posts.

Awesome. I don't think it will have something to do in my account coz I have dustsweeper and I am subscribed to MB's comment upvote service but I appreciate that you have it for free. I'll tell some good friends about this. Thanks!

I would be very happy, if you could put me on your list. Great Job!

you're on it :D

thanks a lot ;-)

Just a quick note You accidently moved me into the 50SP delegator slot, I would like to get to that level one day, but with what I have outgoing it will be awhile. I am almost back to a two cent vote though. I am still just at 25SP for delegation though.

lol... indeed... but with 25.072 SP you're at least at the very top of the 25SP delegators list... ;)

Which also explains why I've copied you into the wrong row in the table above. It's corrected now.

Yeah, you keep earning SP even on the delegated out SP (learned that not to long ago). When it gets to 1.000SP I will readjust and take the tiny extras out. So far it all adds up to 0.401SP from all the accounts delegated out to.

Voted for the witnesses who help you. Thanks as always for your service! :)

That's awesome, thanks for your ongoing support!

As I told I found this a very interesting service!
Is this comment enough to participate in it ?

Yeah, that's all it needed. I've checked your account activity and self-voting quota and you've passed... self-voting was a close call, but given your high engagement it's fine.

Thank you very much. Self-voting quota was exeeced by me, because I tried to bring some post and comments over the 0.02$ limit for payout, I think they should decrease soon.

@dustbunny just delegated 25SP for you, thanks for the work you do here!

awesome, thanks for the support, I've added you to the bunny-list ;)

Great looking forward to it. @for91days mentioned about this (thanks for that!)

Your job is great and hard. I wish many good luck.

a great hard job for a tiny fluffy bunny :D

He has to run very fast to make it all ;-). I did a little ad on #cesky

Yippee!!! I was the 100th to upvote this post! What do I get, what do I get?!? ;)

lol... you can have a hug!

:) Thank you!

Great! I've delegated something to the exam ...

thanks for the support @krakonos!

really nice :))

more bots for the community!!


yes... more community for the bots!

would be a very good and cool alternative :)

Thanks for clearing some dust for me this past month or so @dustbunny!

The bunny's records indicate it's been a little over a month now :D

30d:       0.795
all time:  1.048

Thanks for the support!

What a nice bunny, thanks a lot!


my favourite kitten :D the one and only real @steemkitten

Can you add a xmas hat to the bunny? It will look super cute!... just asking 😅

oh my that's a wonderful idea :D

I'll have to find one small enough or make one... not sure how I'll prop it up, the bunny is very easily squished... but I'll definitely try!!! I kinda need one for the @googlyprize anyway, and maybe one size will fit both.

That will be lovely!! Dusty christmas edition! :D

Yes! I want it too! :D

So, greetinge from #m3bot

Thanks! I saw the shoutout in @m3bot's introduction post!

There's no direct affiliation with @m3bot, though... afaik it's being run by a fellow @dustbunny user who just joined the service themselves recently -> @michelangelo3

I've added you to the watch-list, capacity is limited especially for free member, but you should see the bunny every once in a while :D

That would be great!...thanks a lot!

Wow. Very interesting service!

Who are the witnesses behind you? :)

Yeap! That's all it needed. I've checked your account for engagement activities and self-voting, all good, you're now on the watch-list.

Who are the witnesses behind you? :)

You can read this post, if you want to know why/how I started @dustbunny. There are no witnesses directly behind this program but it is being generously supported by some with their delegations. I'll just quote the footer again ;)

I noticed a @dustbunny vote today on one of my dust-sized freewrite earnings that knocked it to $0.03 -- thank you!

Whoops...I must be tired...I just up-voted this comment before noticing that it is six months old.

My intentions were good though :~I

Thanks @dustbunny and thanks to those who delegate to dustbunny!
