A successful community is one where mutual respect is high and if Steem's value is to go 'to the moon' it will help greatly for the community to be motivated and inspired to help each other. Perhaps the biggest point of contention and argument - plus the issue that puts off new users to Steemit the most - is that users with large wallets can upvote themselves onto the trending page and large payouts with much lower quality posts than the new users and those with small wallets might be creating. If the measure of the subjective value of posts is mostly being defined by the posts own posters then what use is that measurement really? How can this situation be resolved without angering existing users who like things as they are? Maybe I have part of the solution...
