500+ SBD BOUNTY & POTENTIAL STEEMGIG - HELP ME IMPROVE STEEMIT

in bounty •  last year

I can come up with ideas, but I lack the skills to make some things happen.


I cannot write programs, I am not a coder or a dev, and I'm not really sure what it takes to get certain things done. This is why I am offering up a 500+ SBD bounty to anyone who can get this job done. For maximum exposure, I'm also tagging this in the #steemgigs category.

THE ISSUE


Let's face it, it can be really hard to find certain posts on steemit. The post history of some users is like a bottomless pit. Newer users really have no idea about the things that happened before they arrived, and locating certain posts becomes like a "Where's Waldo" game that some people never win.

In a lot of ways, it is very hard to even get to know another user. Their ideas and creations quickly get buried and for the most part we only get exposed to whatever topics or posts they are currently posting or have posted in the recent past.

THE IDEA THAT I WOULD LIKE TO SEE BECOME REALITY


Eventually, I would like to see this become a feature on steemit itself. For now, though, perhaps it just needs to become another off-site resource. Either way, I'll willing to pay to get it done.

Imagine that you could select a username and then choose a tag. When you select the particular tag for a username, every post that user ever made in that tag would show up in order.

By way of example, let's say that a gardener joins steemit. They find the @papa-pepper page and notice that I claim to be a gardener. Since this interests them, they wonder what posts I've made in the "garden" tag. However, my posts are varied, and by scrolling down in my post history they mostly see animal posts, contest, and other content. They conclude, "Maybe he is not such a gardener after all," and move on...

If this tag idea becomes implemented on steemit, though, or if we are able to provide an off-site resource, then the user could just select my username and click on the "garden" tag. Instantly, every post I've ever made using that tag would be instantly available for them to explore. Now, rather than concluding "Maybe this guy is not such a gardener," they will conclude, "Cool, what an interesting gardener with some great gardening posts!" Can you see the difference?

MY <3 MINUTE VIDEO EXPLANATION


HOW YOU CAN HELP


If you understand my goal in this idea and think that you can get the job done, please let me know. If you agree this this would be an amazing idea to get created and available but have no idea how to get the job done yet still want to help, please consider resteeming this post and telling your steemit friends about the idea.

I think that this could be a huge tool for increasing our interaction and understanding of one another, which will help build deeper relationships and the community as a whole.


THE "+"


I am officially offering a 500+ SBD bounty. The 500 SBD is a set amount that will come from my own wallet. The "+" is because once this idea becomes reality, I will do a promo post about the tool and give all the liquid SBD/STEEM from the post payout to the creator of the resource.

CLOSING THOUGHTS


Yesterday when I was at the "STEEMY SUMMER PARTY" in Kansas City, I was discussing this idea with @jacobts and @stellabelle. (And yes, I will do my official recap on the meetup/party in the near future to let you all know my thoughts about it.) Anyway, @stellabelle had made the comment that she was even having troubling finding one of her own recent posts. Let's face it, there certainly is room for improvement in the ways that we try to locate previous posts, and I think that this particular idea will be a HUGE step forward to our community.
Thank you for your time everyone, and please feel free to share any ideas or thoughts that you may have about this idea in the comment section below.

(Also, the colorful @papa-pepper artwork in the cover image was created by @shayne, in case you were wondering.)

Not to take anything away from what you've done (I really like steemnow.com), but I made a dedicated tool just hours after he posted the original article.

You can check it out here.

One thing your implementation lacks is the ability to see which tags an author has used. Having to guess, makes it harder to explore new unknown sides of an author.

·
·

Pretty impressive on the performance. How were you able to achieve this? What tech stack and libraries did you used? If that's okay with you? Thanks.

·
·
·

Sure.

I use Flask for the backend which queries a mongo database (the steemdata one), so I don't have to parse the blockchain; this is primarily what makes the application so performant.

The downside is that it's not fully updated, but about an hour behind steemit.com.

Other than that, it's really just a very basic web-application.

·
·
·
·

Ahh, I see. That's cool. Thanks for that.

·
·

I've seen it. It's a nice tool :)

Your tool searches through all posts ever made, while on Steemnow.com I use only the last 100 posts at this moment. Maybe you can add the payout and the number of upvotes as well.

It is, of course, up to @papa-pepper who wins the $500 SBD bounty.

·
·
·

I will be going with @kasperfred on this one, but thanks for all your effort and investment in the community @penguinpablo! Thanks!

·
·
·
·

No problem, good choice. He made a very nice tool. Congrats @kasperfred! :)

I would really appreciate it if you would like to mention SteemNow.com in your post about this bounty as well.

·
·
·
·
·

I will mention it as well as you in the post. Making it now. SteemNow will be mentioned first! Thanks!

·
·
·
·
·

I too think @papa-pepper should mention SteemNow.com; it's a really versatile tool which I use a lot. @penguinpablo let me know if you need help with the development of it.

·
·
·

payout and upvotes added - I also added image support.
I don't however limit to the last 100 posts - I think that should be specific to steemnow.

·
·
·
·

You have made an excellent resource that is what I envisioned in my head. I'll send the SBD to you now, but it may take a day or more to make the post about it. Once the post is made, I'll transfer the liquid SBD to your account. Thank you so much!

·
·
·
·
·

Thanks. Let me know if you think of any other ideas you want implemented.

·

Awesome shipping speed! SteemNow is keep getting better.

Awesome idea! I am a developer and am bummed that I didn't see this earlier.

A few suggestions:

  1. My first thought was "Damn! I can nail this gig by offering to do it for way less." I would suggest that, in the future, you should ask for bids . . . .
  2. While there are way too many tools out there, if you were to collect AND CURATE a bunch of tools ("Papa's Workshop!") it would be awesome.
  3. Even better would be to develop a common platform and development community around Papa's Workshop. That way you could have your tools made and customized to order.
  4. You should work with me to make this happen. Just sayin . . . . ;-)
·

There's no need to strain yourself. I already implemented the idea yesterday. You can try it here.

·
·

This works great!

·
·

Good job! I would suggest ordering the tags by frequency of use. Since you have done the backend work already, let me know if you would appreciate some help with styling and mobile optimization, so you don't have to do everything on your own.

·
·
·

Good idea with the frequency. I'll implement it tomorrow. As for the styling feel free to come with suggestions.

·
·
·

Actually, I couldn't sleep, so I implemented a very inefficient version of what you're talking about.
It's quite a bit slower than the previous version, but I think it's worth it; at least until I get time to implement a better one.

If you add this after all other CSS, it should work well on mobile devices. Also, I changed the image sizes, so they all have the same width, and get cropped at the bottom to preserve the ratio. I think, the overall look is cleaner that way.

The CSS looks a little weird at some places, because for testing in Firebug etc. I had to cancel out the existing CSS at some places.

Tested on Chrome and Firefox and my HTC's and Samsung mobiles.

Thanks, I just pushed your css to the live version. I'll take your suggestions in the comment into consideration for future development.

A little bug I found: The first (most frequent) tag shows a wrong amount of posts (times 2 for my account and your account). However, I've seen also seen other differences than the factor 2.

On the subsequent tags it seems to be correct in most cases...there are some differences as well sometimes. I figured this might be caused by authors changing their tags afterwards, but I can't tell for sure.

·
·
·
·
·
·
·

I found the bug. It's because the main (category) tag is written twice to the blockchain tag section.

While I could try correct it, it will likely be fixed soon making the time spent fixing the bug worthless.

·
·
·
·

Cool, I'm already changing the styling in Firebug until it looks good on my smartphone :)

·

Wow! Now you are a thinker!

I'll keep this in mind. Thanks!

That would be a great tool. It'd also be nice to search, say you like darts, to be able to search all users that have mentioned darts, and even go further and maybe be able to search for a range of upvotes. Not saying posts about darts with no upvotes doesn't have good content, but it's still be nice to be able to search for posts about darts that have received over $10 in upvotes. Something's big like that. Really fine tune searching for party culprit things. Just a thought. Have a great Sunday!

·

That would be cool too! You're right!

As a content creator and contributor to the steemit community, I really support this. However, I think there are some fundamental issues that need a good looking at. I think that it's reasonable to have to build up a reputation in order to earn more in steemit. At the same time, I think that the system buries legitimately good articles and content under more seasoned and more invested individuals. And hey, that's totally understandable! However, it can be very discouraging for new users. Frustrating even. Take this for an example.

@mysterymerr was a friend that I donated my design services to. She spent a deal of time working on her introduction post. She wanted to do blogging on makeup and special effects content. She posted a very well written introduction post, and it made 20.00 SBD, which she managed to get maybe 10.00, less actually because of all the fees. Meanwhile, other people were able to blog in introduce yourself and earn hundreds because they knew the right people. It was very discouraging. The last straw for her was when she posted one more time and only made 0.03 sbd. She quit after that, and I don't think she's coming back.

Now, I know what you guys are thinking. Who cares right? She should have kept posting, earned her following and built up from there.

If you say that, you have an extremely solid point. However, I'm in the business of design. I've studied user experience design.

So while @mysterymerr is just one person who didn't do well, she represents a margin of potential newcomers. Her experience is what a lot of other newcomers are experiencing. It's something that we have to assume.

Now, while there may be something wrong with steemit's big picture, an even bigger issue present. The expectations are not correctly set A lot of these promotional materials, and word by mouth promotes steemit as a life changing platform. Step 1: Post, Step 2: ??? Step 3: The moon.

This may be true for a lot of people on the platform, but it is not true for everyone. The expectations are not correct. And thusly, newcomers will come aboard, and quickly realize that earning lots of money using steemit is actually bigger than just posting.

It's about promoting yourself, networking, building a following.

I'd say, that a good way to help counteract this is by finding new ways to spotlight content, more areas to allow good content to reach the light of day. If that were to happen, expectations could be set to reflect the active promotional materials.

Steemit is very much a huge ocean of content. Someone who is new and writes a post or contributes something worthwhile should be able to earn the same as someone who's been here forever, who doesn't actively post helpful or interesting content.

My 2 cents.

·

ONE HUNDRED PERCENT AGREE!! And yes, I shouted that. I think if this issue isn't addressed, it will push a lot of users away. We're in a world that's so impatient, and they want instant rewards; meaning if they feel their article was really good, and they didn't get rewarded, they'll go elsewhere. That way they'll get their reward, even if it's just in the form of praise and kindness from their fans, friends etc. It's not always about the financial reward. I've found quite a few old posts that hardly had any reward, and were in fact very helpful and interesting articles. I then look for more of their articles, and see they haven't posted in months. And I've found quite a few like that. The old saying 'Cream rises to the top' comes to mind, but maybe there's just too much cream, and some of it just has no room to get to the top.

Anyway, I'll stop there, I have now up-voted and followed you @malicered

I have been hoping this becomes a reality for a while! @papa-pepper can you check my message on steemchat if you get a chance? steemian in need!

As of May 2017, there are more than 170,000 Steem accounts. After an initial public beta for which no payments were made, the hard fork on July 4th, 2016 saw $1,300,000 of STEEM and Steem Dollars paid out to Steemit users
The exchange rate of STEEM compared to Bitcoin rose continuously during July 2016, peaking at a price of over 4 US dollars. In most of July 2016, Steem had the third largest market capitalization of all cryptocurrencies monitored by the website Coinmarketcap.com, reaching a first notable peak at July 20th, with about 405 million US dollars. As of May 25th, 2016 its market cap is 258 million United States dollars.

in 2020 more than 200,000,000 Steemit accounts will be integrated in top 15 social networking sites in the world.

Positve projection with facts could be more than assurance. Thankful insight

·
·

Well... i think earlier than 2020...
Anyway great post and great comment too!!

·
·

I don't know where you get all the stats, but I LOVE them!

·
·

Very well pointed.
People have to know that Steemit will be huge.

·

Thank you for that! Got it!

·

We are gathering gradually, steemians indeed looking to come to the aid of steemians in need! : Join us: https://discord.gg/wWrnSXK let's add more voice to the movement!

·
·

I agree, good idea..lets stay in touch. Joined yesterday

·

The same here...I agree and lets stay in touch

I'm also not a developer, but if someone will pick this up, I can offer my help with testing. I'm QA engineer/software tester for over 10 years now. So a lot of experience on my shoulders and a huge willing to help in my heart :)

·

Hey I didn't have too much time to test it but could you let me know if you find any bugs on https://www.asksteem.com/userexplorer
also if you'd like you can also try a better tested:
https://www.asksteem.com

·
·

@thekyle I'm currently at work, but I spent the las hour looking into https://www.asksteem.com/ Since there is no other place, for now, to leave you the feedback, I will do it here. Searching feature seems to work fine for me, but I have some thoughts to share:

  1. After searching, if you open any link in the current window, there are several errors in the dev console. I had no time to analyse them, but I think you should consider looking into them.
  2. I found the lack of pagination for the search results very annoying. You should really add this, it seems like a basic feature when working with several pages of search results. And yes, I know it can be set in the URL, but you should probably think more about "non-technical" users.
  3. There is a small design issue on the main page
    search_icon.png
  4. I cannot fully understand how autocomplete works. For some phrases, the autocomplete tries to suggest that it can be a tag etc., but for another (actually being a tag already) it is not. See the screens below. Is it on purpose? Or I'm just not clever enough to figure this out? :)
    autocomplete_1.png

    autocomplete_2.png

I'm sorry if I missed something, but like I said - I had only an hour to play with this tool. Never the less I hope that my thoughts will be helpful for you.

Now I have to do some work, but later today I will test https://www.asksteem.com/userexplorer for you.

·
·

Ok, @thekyle I was able to do some test for https://www.asksteem.com/userexplorer also, and basically all looks pretty good, but the points 1 and 2 from my previous comment apply also for this tool. Also, one question came into my mind - should search results contain the resteemed posts if the tag is a match?

·
·
·

Hey thanks for giving me feedback, I don't think there is any way for me to include resteemed posts as that is not part of the blockchain and only steemit feature. For your points #1 and #2:

#1. Could you give me more details about this, I tried looking at some pages on AskSteem and didn't find any errors in the JS console, I did find errors on Steemit after clicking the link but those appear regardless of being directed there by AskSteem.

#2. The bottom of search results pages do contain buttons for moving the next and previous page which should be enough for non-technical users to move between pages, I really don't see it as likely that someone would need to jump from for example page 1 to page 5:

Anyway, thanks for your feedback, I'll continue improving AskSteem, and look into some of the things you mentioned.

·
·
·
·

#1. Just search something using your tool, open the console in the browser and click any link from results - you should see several errors in the console.

#2. I disagree here - I think it is very likely that someone would need to jump between the pages. I base this opinion on my experience with users :)

No problem - if you will need help in the future, you know where to find me :)

·
·
·
·
·

Alright, well thanks for your help, really appreciate it. :)

·
·
·
·
·

My pleasure :)

·
·

No problem, will do :)

Nailed it!!!

I'm always willing to help :)

@papa-pepper, wow... YES!

Seems to me one of the tools lacking on Steemit is a way to organize content better. Not only is what you suggest an excellent idea, but from what little I understand about coding, it would not be super hard to implement if it were done as an extension of organizing tags better.

Most web sites with a lot of changing content have a "tag cloud" somewhere. Whereas Steemit does list tags on some pages, it's really not that well organized. Maybe "communities" will fix this? I don't know. I just wish we had more "fixed" top level and secondary level tags... for example, we might have "cryptocurrencies" as a top level tag, then "bitcoin," "steem," "ethereum" as secondary level tags... it makes browsing by interest FAR easier.

Getting back to your specific suggestion... categories are basically "disguised searches" that return specific results. I don't think it would be horribly difficult to add a search qualifier called (for example) "&user=papa-pepper" as a user option... be it from your profile page, or from a general category page.

Organizing tags better would also make it easier when you're creating a post and wondering whether a tag you're using actually exists, already... especially if the developers to make it so there were a "hot pre-fill" (lots of sites use that) you start adding tags.

Thanks for a GREAT suggestion!

Your actions are truly admirable. Not many steemians will thought about giving back to the community by encouraging and rewarding more improvement to steemit out of own pocket. Role model material. Thumbs up!!!

·

Yes, that is part of what we teach. Feel free to join us in a #steemgig soon!

This seems like a good idea. On esteem app there is already a search feature to "search by tags" and "search by user".

Imo these two can be merged. For example, first user selects "username" and then selects "tag" and that will fetch details , that shouldn't be hard I guess.

@papa-pepper
Esteem dev : @good-karma
Steemnow dev - @penguinpablo

·

Hmm... never used the esteem app but that does sound promising.

This is a sorely needed feature, and I hope someone picks up the gig! Resteemed.

·

Those times I wish I chose computer science as a college major.

·
·

I have both a BS in Comp Sci and a MS in Cybersecurity and still feel this way!

·
·

Ha! Still way better than a communications degree...

You guys are cracking me up!!!

I majored in Mechanical Engineering but worked 10 years in IT. We can always learn new things 😉 never too late.

·

Thinking joining steemgigs discord server will be valuable in some way, some time: https://discord.gg/wWrnSXK

·
·

I want to join but ny fulltime job is in the way. Lol. Will there be part time stuff in there also?

·
·
·

Hahaha, it is more like steemit.chat but with more features. A place where steemians gather to chat!

·
·
·
·

Haha ok cool.see you there!

@papa-pepper, I have written a post about a script I wrote for users here .. https://steemit.com/steemit/@netuoso/user-script-filter-by-tag-in-steemit-by-netuoso. The script is open source and available for inspection and peer-review.

I have a github page with several different scripts here https://github.com/netuoso/cryptoscripts/ such as one that adds the ability to filter posts by reputation minimum, https://github.com/netuoso/cryptoscripts/blob/master/filter-by-reputation-steemit.js.

I can write these all day! Just give me the ideas and I will put my programming skills to work!!!!!! This gig would be perfect for me really.

I hope you see this comment!

this tool Already Created :)
https://www.asksteem.com
creator : @thekyle
Sreach like this :
author:mahdiyari AND tags:bitcoin

for more search tags see here : Click me

·

That's great, but it's still lacking the ability to organize things.

I think besides finding all the posts an user made with a certain tag, it would be nice to have the option to sort it as well.

For example:

  • From Newer to oldest
  • From Oldest to Newer
  • By earnings
  • By comments

And I know Steemit is only like a year old, but it would be nice to also be able choose if you only want to see posts from the last week, last month, last three months, last year.

·
·

I might add some more sorting options in the future, although it can already filter by date range.

All posts created today:
created:2017-06-25
All posts created in June 2017:
created:[2017-06-01 TO 2017-06-30]

Also just created this tool which supports reverse chronological:
https://steemit.com/asksteem/@thekyle/asksteem-user-explorer

·

Awesome tool @mahdiyari. Just what I have been looking for, Thank You. I always said the post is a great starting point but the comments is where you find the gold.

·

Hmmm.... It still seems a little lacking to me, checked it out a but right now, and it pulled up all sorts of unrelated posts... not quite what I was looking for, but I'll play around with it some more.

Still looks like a great tool though! Thanks!

·
·

Here is the intro post with more info on how to use the tool if you're interested: https://steemit.com/steemit/@thekyle/introducing-asksteem-a-steem-search-engine

Of course, I'm always working to make it better. Could you let me know what queries you were trying?

·
·
·

I'm refining it right now, and came from asksteem to check this because I saw your reply.

Right now I was just trying searching by typing in the following:
@papa-pepper #life

The fourth result in the search was a post from @riosparada about my wild and strange contest.

Personally, I was looking for a way to pull up only posts from a specific user that they posted in a specific tags, sorted from newest to oldest.

Thought your tool is obviously helpful and beneficial, it does not seem to be capable of this at the moment, does it? Please let me know what you think, and thanks so much for all of your awesome work! Nice to meet you @thekyle!

·
·
·
·

It's kinda rough around the edges but:
author:"papa-pepper" AND tags:life
will return all the posts by you tagged with life, I'm working on refining the UX in the future.

·
·
·
·
·

OK, I'll check that out. Thank you!

·
·
·
·
·
·

Later today, I'll try building a dedicated UX on top of the AskSteem backend to make doing what you requested easier. :)

·
·
·
·
·
·
·

Cool! Thank you! Great!

Great idea. Thank you!

Beautiful picture of you, if I do say so myself :D

@shayne

·

Did you make it? I want one. LOL

·
·

Yes :D

I offered my illustration services on Steemit a few months ago and @papa-pepper was one of my first and most frequent clients.

Unfortunately, I'm not doing commissions right now, but will likely post about when/if I'm opening them back up.
:)

·
·
·

I will watch for it. THANKS!

I like the idea a lot but unfortunately I do not have the capability to do it...Someone on Steemit will for sure:)

Hey It is great to see you that your working hard to coporate with the people of steemit community .

I would like to tell you that I am also newbie . I used to creat marvouls content for the people of steemit it. As I am newbie I dont have Idea your help will be really apprecited .

If you check my Post MY Name Is Sophia Olive You will enjoy my intro post and get idea about myself ..

Your feedback will be apprecited .

Thanks for the Big post

SteemIt is the best community around the globe so far. As of now the youth of today has been too busy wasting their time onto social networks that add to nothing except wasting precious hours of the day.

Whereas SteemIt is a total different story. You do what you like best BLOGGING and still get paid sitting at your homes. WHAT BETTER OPPORTUNITY THAN THIS. WHAT BETTER PLACE TO GO ???
Lets expand STEEMUT and lets make our VOICES heard in every single home. THUMBS UP BUDDY 👍

·

Totally! Instead of wasting your time you are investing your while using SteemIt. I am spending much more time on here consistently than on any 'browser game' (because it reminds me of that) in the past and I do not think I will ever end up regretting it because of, as you said, the amazing community. #MakeSocialMediaGreatAgain

I could do a basic version of this, wouldn't want to take 500sbd from you, probably the upvotes would be enough of an incentive :-)

My idea would be for a landing page to take a user name, then return a list of their top tags and posts by upvote count and reward total. It would either use the steem api or one of the blockchain databases. We'd need to get in touch with whoever manages them to ensure that whatever solution we made would not put too much strain on their system.

Also happy to work with someone - technically my idea would be a simple php landing page with bootstrap, which either queries a database with sql/ similar or the api with javascript - like a more advanced version of my project http://steemforthe.win

·

Yeah, I'm not sure of all the details and do not know what potential issues it could create for the system either.

·

We would like to talk: Join us on discord: https://discord.gg/wWrnSXK

·
·

Will join you on discord tomorrow

possible feature:
"Profile" for each user where they can choose to pin certain tags/posts, maybe an in depth description and automatic photo album.

The auto photo album would require another feature for steemit. Tagging photos with their rights/identifiers. Could allow mass categorization of photos.

This is defintely a good idea and will help archive steemit posts and make them easier to find. This will enhance the user experience at Steemit. Just like you, it is something beyond me as I do not know coding. My only assistance is to resteem this post.

·

Thank you for that.

·
·

You are most welcome. For me personally I try to improve Steemit by spreading my positivity, thus my username @positivesteem. Do check out the positive articles at my profile.

Hi, papa-pepper. I'm @joanroberts, I've been here for a whole week, and I'm going to give you one of my precious votes. It's only worth two cents, but:

  1. It's the thought that counts
  2. I would upvote you even if my vote was worth $2 or more, because whoever comes up with a solution for this deserves a little somethin-somethin for their effort.
  3. It's mos def value added, brings something to the table.

I've got a couple of thoughts/suggestions in the meantime. And if anyone out there has better ideas for a temporary solution, or have some thoughts on how to take this idea and make it a little smoother, please add to this reply.
I'm all for better mousetraps.

My first suggestion is - and trust me, this is a kind of clunky solution, not elegant at all, but will work - is to include our own tags in the body of our posts and submissions.

It's voluntary. It's clumsy. It takes some effort. And it's not indexing. It is, however, a way to be found in conjunction with a particular topic. It would work along these lines:

Let's say you called this "project index". You read my post, wanted to go back and read it again without putting a lot of effort into it, and maybe wanted to read responses I posted elsewhere about the idea.

If I wanted to be part of this, I would include #project-index-joanroberts somewhere in my response or submission. I would also include the tag: #project-index for those who would like to find everything on this topic.

This is just one thought among what I'm sure will be many suggestions to come. I'm going to go through the responses here to see what others think. Since I haven't done that yet, apologies to those who have already come up with this idea. BTW, don't even know this will work even for those who would like to participate.

Well, that's my two cents. Literally and figuratively. I don't write code or program, either.

And here's a free suggestion: those of you who do write code and do programming getcher group going on and open source this or make it an invitational group, whatever works for y'all, and divide the proceeds by whatever weight you assign to ideas and tasks.

And, @papa-pepper, it is a plumb-pleasure to meet you. I give you your propers for having integrity and standards.

Originality and putting the effort in it takes to write your own submissions instead of a completely or largely copy-and-paste job merits a nod. I may be new, but I respect and acknowledge authorship.

I propose following tags also like reddit in addition to people. We will select several tags that are interesting to us. Steemit will show curated posts of those tags.. if we also follow the person as well as the tag that post can be scored even more.. curation algorithms can be connected to machine learning in the future..

As the reward pool is keeping decease. And there are more user in steemit and more peopl vote recently after Hf19. I think we can develop some bot to stop these people, like auto flag all the people keeping voting? Or flag the new user or whale to make the community more health? As if there are no limit on new user or whale vote, the payout will drop very fast...

Thank you! Good work :)

I wad thinking exactly the same today when I was showing Steemit it a good friend today. We couldn't find any filtering system.
The good thing about decentralized technology is that the market decides how and what it will become :)
So I'm willing to bet that soon enough we will get what we together decided is needed!

Excellent post, thank you!!

Thanks for that!

Excellent idea

And I think we talked about this when you were over at our place last week. It's a much needed feature for people to find the posts they are interested in.

Lots of posters have popular posts that others in the community refer others to go and read/view. But unless you have the direct link handy at all times, it's going to be hard to track that content down. THIS IS THE SOLUTION!

Yes we need this on Steemit! UPVOTE!

Yeah, I think I remember that too, down by the sawmill. I've been thinking and talking about this idea a lot lately, and figured it was time to try to do something about it! Thanks!

The feature that @papa-pepper talked about is a nice one but will only do magic of implemented in Steemit or some other app like esteem or busy.org. Creating a seperate tool may not help a lot. Anyways, there is an API from esteem developer @good-karma which i think is a perfect tool to start the project. Happy Steeming.....

I was actually thinking about this feature the other day, then I read your blogpost, then I read the comments - great minds think alike.

Great Idea

it might be a dead end , because people choose other people and enjoy all their sharings or people enjoy one particular subject and they find it in the trending list ... i dont think it is that complicated ..and trying to find a solution on this type of search can be tricky because we will be more and more people on Steemit and even if we do a more simple search , the new posts will still be ahead and the higher scores too ...otherwise , the whole game needs to be changed and i dont think the big whales will be thrilled by this clever and fair idea .

·

I just want to be able to get more info on particular users on specific subjects in an easier way. We will see what happens. Thanks!

·
·

oh ok . i understand , i like how you presented it , hope it will be easier for everyone ...

There is still not such a thing available however if you go to http://www.asksteem.com and put "@username" "#hashtag", it will narrow it down quite good nearly 90%.

But still you can find what you are looking for in a matter of seconds.

Lol i gave you the solution in the first minute and nobody is even reading this

·
·

Checking into it now. Thanks!

·
·
·

Great, you are welcome :)

·
·
·

then thank you for helping everyone here, keep up the good work :)

I've already made a prototype on this. I'm gonna make it live once I've successfully synced with Steem blockchain with the mapped posts and tags. (Still syncing...) :)

Thanks @papa-pepper! :)

I'll keep you guys posted. :D

·

Cool, sounds like you are not alone!

So yesterday I decided to take a try on your request and here it its:
Rough, and not diamond shaped but here it is:

Link to the post:
https://steemit.com/steemit/@ilhicas/search-author-content-categories-request-by-papa-pepper-or-a-tool-in-development

Direct Link to site to search authors content by tag:
http://ec2-54-186-245-209.us-west-2.compute.amazonaws.com:5000/

Will also do a shameless upvote on this comment, to gain some visibility so people can leave their opinions on other ideas they might have, as it seems I might be late to the party. But I work full time as a developer and don't really have that much time for personal projects, and hence why only today was I able to deploy it.

good idea

So, what should I do to other steemians?

I have mixed posts
Actually I have a civil engineering and a religious, but my post is not entirely about my profession

What can I do with it, so I can grow fast?
Does my post have to be regular with the profession, or may vary?

Nice article, I followed you will you folow me back @sycorex

Nice Post & Great Idea Insta & other social media already have this function hope steemit will have this function soon

Congratulations @papa-pepper!
Your post was mentioned in my hit parade in the following categories:

  • Upvotes - Ranked 2 with 937 upvotes
  • Comments - Ranked 2 with 382 comments
  • Pending payout - Ranked 3 with $ 1751,77

Great idea to advance the Steemit community and bring more people to the site! RESTEEMED!

I resteemed you, but i would rather see a column on the right side of everybodys blog side, containing every tag they ever used, so you can click on it and filter the posts this way. There are many other sites using this tag column already. I think i saw one on reddit recently.

Great idea! With a front end developer this could become a reality in a month or so. One issue will be speed since someone like you(@papa-pepper) has 100s of blogs to go through. To improve the speed you could get a backend dev.

Overall technology wise I'd recommend going with a JavaScript front end and working on a Spring based backend after the initial launch. I'd usually be up to help but I'm getting married in a month and then taking a one month vacation so I couldn't do anything until September. Best of luck though! I'd be more than happy to lend a hand picking technologies or reviewing potential coders githubs if needed.

HOPEFully this will goes well. I look forward to see this project to happened.

I shall teach my kids to learn language programming.

I'll just keep on Steeming and eventually I will figure it out! 8D

The easiest way to do this is have the Steemit site just add an api call and include a url such as:
https://steemit.com/@captain-nemo/tag/bookclub

Another solution would be to contact steemdb and they can update their UI to have a sort by tag, since they are already doing all the blockchain look-ups.
https://steemdb.com/@captain-nemo/posts

If someone doesn't deliver something great to you to use, let me know and I will code something up for free that the community can use.

Have a great weekend.

With a quick look at the api docs: https://steemit.github.io/steemit-docs/?Javascript#content
You can use javascript to pull the content and organized by category.
So if someone wants to write it for a browser, would be
get username content
for each sort to array category
Display on page.

;-)

How do we meet you? Please join our steemgigs discord server: https://discord.gg/wWrnSXK

Just had a quick look at the Steemit API Reference. From what I've seen, this could be done by using the 'get_content' call and then filtering the output for the specific tag :)

·

That's one way, there are others, possible to a couple ways. I've been working on some directory apps already for steemit. Progress on the first one is strong and its probably ready to go live in about a week. For games and contests and challenges.

·
·

Sounds cool man. Followed you!

·
·
·

Thanks! I'll try to be useful and entertaining as well as good lookin' ;)

·
·

Hahahaha, you are here.

·
·
·

I don't miss a chance to help steemit and the good steemitizens, wherever I can!

·

We are of the same thought on this.

Agreed! This would be awesome! It really is hard for anyone to find past information on steemit. Scrolling down and waiting for load is tough. I hope this pulls through!

Pretty good idea, actually!

That's a superb idea @papa-pepper . The biggest problem is us minnows when posting something it get disappeared in the feed! We have only 10 seconds after publishing to know our fate! If there is no views no vote, the post can be deemed lost!

Awesome idea and hope it comes to life! Resteemit!

Absolutely! The first thing I said when I came to Steemit was I wished there was a better way to filter individual people's blogs. Mostly because a lot of people resteem a lot of varied things. Mostly things in not as interested in.

In the mean time, and duuurrr I just remembered, using the ctrl+F, "find in page" function may be helpful!

I'm currently working on something very similar to what you're describing, and was actually just about to describe the problem in a post myself.

I will probably do that anyway as I have a few more nuances I want to make.

It ties into another steemit project which I just finished, and I'm now making the user interface for.

·

Wow so many projects in the making! Please join us on our discord, let's have a means to discuss.
https://discord.gg/wWrnSXK

This is a job for @arcange using steemsql.

Yes! Even though I had not thought of this particular feature, I do miss certain search and filter functions.
The more languages are coming to Steemit, the more I wish I could filter by language (I only want to see the ones I understand).

I also wish I could filter by "newbie" to support especially the people who just wrote their very first post, for example.

I'm sure there are more filter options that will be needed.

Great initiative, @papa-pepper!

I'm with you papa pepper :)

Super great idea :-0) resteemed

I was just thinking about this! I tried to find one of my own posts so I could share it with someone and had to scroll through five weeks of my posts and resteems. We need a "My Blog" link as well so it would filter out the resteems. Thank you for suggesting and putting up a bounty!

The only reproach I have about the steemit website is the lack of features. It's too simplistic for such a magnificent project. The devs spend a lot of time on hardforks, and that's fine, I witnessed the implementation of HF19, but didn't see any improvement to the website's UI. I'm writing down my suggestions as my experience evolves, and will share my thoughts on that soon.

Certainly would make things easier!

I wish I can help but I can't program but I did upvoted..

Give that man a medal! 🤞🏻👴🏼

Keep steemit great!
Resteemed and upvoted your Blog!
It would be nice if you can take a look at my analysis about cryptocurrency .
Thank you for that.
Supporting you! Nice if you too.

This is a problem I hope you find someone who can help us with this.

Fuck it - I'll do it :-) thanks for posting this great idea

@papa-pepper that was the first thing I found irritating about Steemit. There is so much on here but finding certain articles takes a little work. Hope it come to fruition...resteemed.

This sounds like what chainbb did or I'm wrong??

SImilar to the # search on twitter ?

·

No idea, never used twitter.

·
·

lol if you making something similar you may want to check it out first.

Yes @papa-pepper, you are another who wants filter searching, because navigation is probably one of the weakest points in Steemit. Thank you very much for offering a bounty, because that could stimulate some of our coders to do the job.

We need this feature ! you deserve upvote and resteem ... :) following you

Excellent post friend, I hope we follow and help each other @juanjdiaz89

That's Great! Check out my new post @bogz follow me! :)

What a great idea! Always seeking to improve the Steemit experience, and seeing it through the eyes of others, that's one of the reasons I enjoy following you.

@papa-pepper, @missberg and I have the skills to do this - we've had a similar idea for an enhancement to Steemit.com in the past.

We'll see what we can come up with.

·

Thanks mate! I certainly appreciate you @avarice!

Thar sounds like a good idea actually and it doesn't seem that hard to materialize.
Hopefully someone takes the initiative to make this idea inyo reality.
Cheers and best of luck with the concept.
Goldie 🍻🍀

Why must there be an external place to access this? Can't a simple tag search bar be implemented into everyones blog page? I also don't know how to code but in theory it seems like tumblr does this so it should be possible here as well. All in all tumblr is a good role model for where the UI should head, IMO.

·

There is a steemit search bar in the upper right corner. I use it a lot. The results aren't formatted all pretty, but it works pretty well for me.

·
·

He wants to be able to search tags on individual users accounts, so unfortunately that doesn't solve his issue. We basically want a search bar for tags so we can sift through the muck.

·
·
·

It's not a complete fix -- a tool would be much better , for sure. But it works pretty well. For example, all I do is put "@papa-pepper" and "gardening" on the same line in the search bar, and then I get a list of his posts about gardening. Now, there may be some posts where he mentions gardening, but it filters down to his content pretty well. Deeper into the list, content from other folks shows up, but only because they mention him in their post or he was featured in that post as a guest.
