# Overview

This Hardfork is about changing the rewards curve to be stake proportional. The original proposal can be read on [steemit.com](https://steemitdev.com/steemit/@steemitblog/proposing-steem-equality-0-19-0-as-the-next-fork).

### Linear Rewards

With the introduction of a linear reward curve everyone will have a say directly proportional to their stake. #1051

### Square Root Curation Rewards Curve

This is to offset the changes in rewards due to the linear reward curve. Curation rewards should stay roughly where they are. #1052

### Increase Vote Impact

Each vote's impact has been increased by 4x. #1053

### Witness Price Feeds Properly Expires

Fixed a bug that prevented price feeds from expiring. #882

### Historical Posts Cannot Be Deleted

Once a post has existed for 7 days, it can no longer be deleted. #876

### Cancelling a Steem Power Delegation Fixed

Fixed a bug that prevented cancelling a delegation in some circumstances #971

### Deleting Post Condition Part of Consensus

Previously, requiring a post had 0 rshares before deletion was enforced via a soft fork. Now it is part of consensus #977

### `account_create_operation` Fixed

There was a bug in the `account_create_operation`. Our short term fix was to temporarily disable the operation. It has been fixed and is re-enabled. #987

### Fixed 0 Delegation Objects

Previously, creating an account with 100% STEEM would create a 0 delegation object. This has been fixed. #997

### Optimized Full Node Reindex

Addressed several changes to increase full node reindex speed. #1160 #1161 #1162

### New Follow Plugin Option

When starting the follow plugin you can specify an epoch time to start calculating user feeds `--follow-start-feeds`. Default is 0 to always calculate feeds.

### Increased p2p Stability

Fixed an issue that was causing instability in the p2p network when live and when syncing.

### Disable `get_block` at Runtime

With `--disable-get-block` you can disable `get_block` and `get_block_header` in the database API at runtime.
