My first encounter with Hive Watchers
This morning, while at work, I had a brief break from the action, and so I was checking my Hive notifications.
I received a message from someone who has not responded to my post before that she saw my activity post on actifit as well as on PeakD
Hello, you are posting twice the same stuff, I saw your posts on Actifit.
I responded to her with
I repost it on PeakD, where I have a larger following.
And that was that, or so I thought.
This evening when I came home I saw new notifications and five of them were from HIVE WATCHERS
(I think this is the Hive equivalent to getting a letter from the IRS.)

Well, that got my heart beating a bit faster.
So let me explain how I do my actifit reports.
When I joined Actifit, for some reason, it would not let me join using my beststart account, so I set it up under my johnnovak account.
I would record my activity on my phone and upload it to the Actifit site. Then I would use a screenshot of the report and post it in PeakD.
This is apparently the step they did not like.
I was able to get a new actifit account set up this evening using my beststart account, and now it will be linked to my main account.
I think this will solve the issue that Hive Watchers has concerns with.
So, I live and learn, I reckon.
So, for those of you who follow my Actifit course, the posts will look a little different now, but the end result should be the same. I am just starting back at zero for my rank.
Thanks for letting me vent a bit.
Until next time,
