FAQ Contest


For the first time ever, Steem Basic Income will do a massive contest of its own, with a pool of 500 bonus units available as prizes. (These bonus units will come out of the available pool of management units.)

Earn points for contributing to a crowd-sourced FAQ! Win SBI bonus units based on the number of points you earn. You do not have to be an SBI member already to participate.

This post contains questions that come from our previous FAQ that was published 9 months ago here:
https://steemit.com/steembasicincome/@steembasicincome/steem-basic-income-frequently-asked-questions

  • Each of the FAQ questions will be repeated as a top-level comment on this post.
  • Submit your clear, accurate answer as a comment in response to the appropriate question.
  • You can answer as many questions as you would like.
  • @josephsavage will mark each response as accurate (qualifying) or inaccurate (not qualifying).
  • If your response is inaccurate, comments for why the answer is not fully accurate will be included, and you can resubmit a revised response.
  • You can score each qualifying response (but not your own) for clarity from 1 (not clear or helpful) to 7 (very clear and helpful).
  • For bonus points, you may also explain why you gave the score you did.

Categories:


Each FAQ question will be its own category, with answers to it scored separately.

Bonus categories:


Do you think we missed a question that should be answered in the FAQ? Share your Question that you think should be included. If enough members reply that it should be included (or provide answers to the question as provisional contest entries), the question will be officially marked as an additional category.

Points:


Each qualifying answer will receive (up to 7) points based on the average clarity score it receives. Winning answers may be included in the final FAQ.

Participants can receive 1 point for each answer they score, and 2 bonus points if they explain their score. Unexplained scores may be discarded (no points) if @josephsavage has doubts about their authenticity.

If you submit a new question that receives at least 5 supporting comments (agreement that the question should be answered in the FAQ), you will get 4 points for 'creating' the new category, but only if the category receives at least two response submissions. If multiple members submit similar questions, the 4 bonus points will be split among those members at @josephsavage's discretion.

Infographics:


Questions that receive responses with good explanatory infographics can have a regular winner and an infographics winner. The same participant can win written response and infographic points for the same question.

Winners:


Total points will be tallied for each member. The prize pool of 500 bonus SBI units will distributed proportionally to the top 50 participants, based on their total point distribution.

Helpful Hints:

  • Read the 'Vote Value in Steem Basic Income' series (see helpful reading below). Many of the documents in Helpful Reading may be considered useful. Some things have changed over time. If you see conflicting information, consider the newest resource or explanation to be definitive (or cite both versions in Discord and ask us for clarification).

  • Write your own answers. If your answer is copy-pasted from previous FAQ, from a Helpful Reading article, or from another member submission, it will be disqualified. Multiple attempts to submit plagiarized responses may result in full disqualification (no points, even from scoring other responses).

  • Submit your answer to each question as a response to the comment announcing that question category. Links to posts will not be considered valid entries. After you have submitted your answers and had them accepted as accurate, it's a good idea to do your own post telling your followers about the contest, sharing your answers, and reminding them to come enter the contest too!

Deadlines:


Answers are due before payout for this contest announcement. Bonus category answers are due when the top-level comment opening the question as a bonus category reaches payout. Clarity scores are due when the comment from @josephsavage (or @sbi-booster) accepting the response as a qualifying entry pays out.

Effectively, every qualifying answer gets a full week from acceptance for members to score that answer. Keep checking back to see if you can get more points from scoring answers that come in close to deadline!

Points will be finalized after the last qualifying comment submissions reach their deadline.

This puts all other contests to shame this week. 500 bonus units. Crazy giving going on right here. Good luck all.

It's been a pretty good turnout so far.

don't forget you can earn contest points by scoring responses for clarity/helpfulness (even if you're not providing any question responses of your own).

Category 14:
What is your refund policy? Can I sell back my units?

SBI has had a number of refund frameworks since our inception, and our intent has always been the complete satisfaction of our subscribers. Currently our most comprehensive refund policy yet, which is available to read in full, refunds units through an accelerated upvote schedule. The refund process is final.

Rating 7

While it doesn't give a short summary about the refund policy this answer is so well written and I don't mind this is the one put on the final version.

Accurate. Response accepted as a qualifying submission.

Don't forgot you can also earn points by scoring the clarity and helpfulness of other qualifying responses.

In my humblest of opinions, all links should be relative, like the one in my answer above, and should not point to any specific front end such as steemit, busy or steempeak.

It should be within the technical capability of each condenser to scrub leading characters for any Steem permlink and replace with their own while rendering the page (e.g. Steempeak can replace all Steemit links with Steempeak links). My understanding is that Steemit does not do this (and does not render permlinks without the leading domain as valid links) so we try to use steemit links for our readers to have a better overall user experience.
That said, we usually post our updates through busy.

This is a really interesting answer!

Rating 6 - Happy with this answer and a link in the FAQ, the policy is complex and too much for a simple answer. This does the job.

I rate this a 6 - I would probably be happier if I didn't have to click a link to read more.

Posted using Partiko Android

6 clarity point

The user needs to go to the link to know about the refund policy but this answer reads so nicely and it's good.

For eligible accounts, the new refund framework will keep enrolled units at a 2 STEEM potential value but will grant a 0.50 STEEM potential to all sponsored units. In effect, the total potential ROI under this framework is 250% for each 1 STEEM enrollment. Refunds would be delivered through an accelerated upvote schedule:
Since our system tracks pending upvote values using rshares, we will deliver the accelerated upvotes through our normal delivery system, by manually removing your units from record and increasing your rshares_balance with any surplus value you are due.
For more info please read the full post on our refunds

Rating 7

Good job on the summary, this isn't an easy one!

Accurate. We know it's sort of complicated (like everything else SBI, lol!) We try to strike a balance between sustainable, fair, and generous, while preventing excessive abuse. It results in inherent complexity... Our own little three body problem.

Response accepted as a qualifying submission.

Don't forget you can also earn points by scoring the clarity and helpfulness of other qualifying responses.

Rating 7 - for a very complex topic, possibly the best summary I have seen. Provides the link for more information.

I will score it 6

Very well explained and useful information. Great job on providing links for more details

Rating 7, good summary + link to more information

Rated 7. I could understand and is probably the best response I've read.

7 clarity point

Great summary overall for this relatively complex topic (This is still new stuff for us all). Good job!

Rated 7, very well worded and clear

Posted using Partiko Android

The refund policy is pretty difficult to summarize in a few words but you can read the lastest version of it on this post; https://steemit.com/busy/@steembasicincome/sbi-refund-policy-redux

NB: I have my reservations about embedding links for public purposes. Some noobs would not click on embedded links with the fear of it being phishing.

Rating 4

Summarizing with our own words is better than just putting a link to sendusers to. While I agree that it's hard to summarize it well. Saying it's hard to summarize refund policy of all things on FAQ answer doesn't sound encouraging for potential user, does it?

Lol I thought as much 😄

Posted using Partiko Android

Accurate. Response accepted as a qualifying submission.

Don't forget you can also earn points by scoring the clarity and helpfulness of other qualifying responses.

I would score this around a 4 it works but is simple. Putting the link in a better format would also be nice.

Rating 5 - Giving the link is the easiest solution, the policy is complex to explain accurately

Rating 6, imho mentioning the security impact of embedded links is very good. But a summery for the FAQ would be nice

Rating 6 - no more information needed!

Rating 3

It's better to also summarize the content of the link posted rather than just putting it there for this question.

Accurate. Response accepted as a qualifying submission.

Don't forget you can also earn points by scoring the clarity and helpfulness of other qualifying responses.

I will give this a 3 due to the very short intro and using the link without making it look better.

Rating 5 - the link could be formated with markdown, but the policy is very hard to simplify in an FAQ so a link is probably best.

Rating 4, at least a summary should be included

I rate this answer as 5, a little inside of the post was necessary.

3 clarity point

Just giving link isn't a satisfying answer

In summary, the new refund framework states:

the new refund framework will keep enrolled units at a 2 STEEM potential value, but will grant a 0.50 STEEM potential to all sponsored units. In effect the total potential ROI under this framework is 250% for each 1 STEEM enrolllment. Refunds would be delivered through an accelerated upvote schedule

You can find more about the refund policy here.

You mean sell your units back to @steembasicincome? I guess I am not clear with this second question.

Rating 6

A great attempt to summarize this stuff. This category isn't the easiest of the bunch.

Accurate. It's okay to be confused by the second question. The answer is no, because units represent a subscription level. Would you call a magazine and ask them to by back your subscription? It would be a ridiculous question.
The question comes from some members getting confused and thinking our shares are an unregistered security instead of a subscription (which would be something you could own and sell back). This is why we are moving toward saying 'units' or 'SBI levels' instead of 'shares', but every term is awkward in it's own unique way.

Response accepted as a qualifying submission.

Don't forget you can also earn points by scoring the clarity and helpfulness of other qualifying responses.

I rate this response as 6. The refund policy is tricky to understand but the citation was necessary.

Rating 6 - provides both a summary and the link to a very complex question.

Rating 6, small summery and link to more information

As previous replies indicate, there is!

  1. Check this link out for yourself. It will go over, extensively a full blown SBI Refund policy. They still are in the old phase, but are dialectically getting to the new phase as we speak.
  2. Funny that, the new phase goes as followed: "the new refund framework will keep enrolled units at a 2 STEEM potential value, but will grant a 0.50 STEEM potential to all sponsored units. In effect the total potential ROI under this framework is 250% for each 1 STEEM enrolllment. Refunds would be delivered through an accelerated upvote schedule"
  3. By a technicality, you do not "sell your units" nor can you. @steembasicincome holds a grasp on that, and you can only get it back through a refund. So everything's centralized in @steembasicincome's hands and operations.

You can read about the new refund policy here

Rating 5

Providing a little summary on the FAQ page would be useful instead of just a link

Accurate. Response accepted as a qualifying submission. Hopefully people will still see to score it, since it is nested under another response instead of directly below the category comment.

Don't forget you can also earn points by scoring the clarity and helpfulness of other qualifying responses.

Rating 6 - formatting with the link in markdown is neater than other similar responses.

Rated as 5. Could have provided a summary of the post.

5 clarity point

Summary on the answer instead of just a link would be better

Rating 4, just a link is not enough

Accurate. We have had only one refund request since bringing everyone's attention to the available options. Response accepted as a qualifying submission.

Don't forget you can also earn points by scoring the clarity and helpfulness of other qualifying responses.

Rating 5 - contains more detail than other answers, wording is difficult to follow. Focusing only on 250% potential ROI is oversimplifying the policy, as it could appear from this that you could send 1 steem and then get a refund of 2.5. the policy is much more complex than that.

I give you a 6. Simply explains the policy but in a complex way.

5 clarity point

Good attempt to summarize the post! I thinks it's funny there are 3 points of answer when there's only 2 questions...

I rate this a 7 - Plenty of info without clicking on the link.

I’m hosting a giveaway contest. Do you have a banner I can use?

We think that the best banner to be used is the one made by yourself, expressing your own creativity.

(For example, this is my last self-made banner created with canva.com: I hope it could inspire you! ;) )

SBIgivewayafit.png

Is this one that others are also free to use? I was just reading your latest giveaway post, and thinking that I should do some SBI giveaways on my Actifit updates too (maybe that will motivate me to actually use actifit a little more).

OH YEAH! :)

As stated in the post, my work is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivatives 4.0 International License.

If this is a free to use banner I give it a 7. ;)

Yes, it’s free to use, simply mentioning @amico as creator. 🙏🏼

Posted using Partiko iOS

Accurate. Response accepted as a qualifying submission.

Don't forgot you can also earn points by scoring the clarity and helpfulness of other qualifying responses.

I give a 6 for the brilliant idea and example. If at all the image has no copyrights attached to it, it's a 7 but I still have some doubts because I don't understand what you meant by licensed to . . . in another comment below.

Yes, it’s free to use, simply mentioning @amico as creator. 🙏🏼

You can know more on creative-commons license visiting https://creativecommons.org/
Cheers! ;)

Rating 6 - there are other banners to use, but marks because I love the banner itself. Maybe a tiny suggestion my friend would be to change "share" to "unit" to fit in with SBI's preferred terminology. Well done @amico.

Oh, thank you very much for the suggestion and for the rating, mate! ;)

5 clarity point

I think this question exists so the user can use a template/standard banner instead of making it themselves and I believe the SBI team has one for asking us to answer this question... The better answer would be a layout for SBI to put that banner. Inspiring users to use their creativity is still nice.

Rating 7 - this is a very useful answere and absolute new for me!

Posted using Partiko iOS

I rate this answer a 6 - Some people don't know how you make cool banners.

Posted using Partiko Android

Rating 5

While self-made banner is ideal, I think this question is on the FAQ because the team has made a banner to be readily used by the users on the FAQ. Giving an example nice though.

Yes, here it is.


To use the banner, copy and embed this code into your article's source code.

<a href="https://steemit.com/basicincome/@steembasicincome/steem-basic-income-a-complete-overview" rel="nofollow noopener"><img src = "https://steemitimages.com/DQmYyGi4HvKXuvQJ7sWPQHH5W33ThfAE74dpsJgMJ6n8UiZ/SBI%20Promo%20Banner%20PNG.png"></a><br>

Rating 6

Great answer format, the team can simply replace it to the banner that's supposed to be on the FAQ. As others pointed out, source.

Accurate. We will provide updated source code that links to the new FAQ once we publish it. Response accepted as a qualifying submission.

Don't forget you can also earn points by scoring the clarity and helpfulness of other qualifying responses.

Rating 6 - Simple, clean answer with the source code included. Adding in the banner created by @katysavage (with citation) would score 7

I will score it 6

Direct to the point and adding the code of the banner is really helpful.

Posted using Partiko Android

This is a 5. Citing the source is also very important.

6 clarity point.

Good layout... Yeah, needs to credit the original creator.

Rating 6, the embedded code is very smart, bit as mentioned before it's missing the citation

Rating 7 - perfect to work with!

Posted using Partiko iOS

I rate this answer a 7 - Once the creator is mentioned.

Posted using Partiko Android

@steembasic income doesn't have a standard banner at this time. There are many free to use banners made by other members just ask in the discord. Also, you are free to use any images on our post. Here are two we have provided in the past.

Rating 6

Would be perfect if it includes copy-able strings for the banners.

We did create a banner for this purpose, and we include it in every update, but since we don't require that contests use it, it's not standardized. Members are welcome to use our banners and graphics for their contests, but it is not required.

Response accepted as a qualifying submission.

Don't forget you can also earn points by scoring the clarity and helpfulness of other qualifying responses.

I have provided some more info for my entry.

Rating 7 - This answer provides the 2 main options to use. I would just double check if the first banner is "free to use" or "free to use with citation or creator" as I am unclear on this.

I added the tag but from his comment I thought that one was inculding in the free to use.

You are probably right, so much good info in this contest i feel I am missing some of it.

Posted using Partiko Android

We know there is a ton of info and most people have not caught every announcement. This contest is helping us educate all the participants, but also giving us insight into areas where we need to more emphasis to help everyone understand the program changes.

Both of those images are free to use.

Rating 7, both banners are included and info to discord

I rate this as 6. I can't tell who created the second banner and if it is copyright free. Otherwise it's a 7.

6 clarity score

I believe SBI team has a standard banner for this question. But nice example for answer layout...

I rate this answer a 7 - Examples are given and creator acknowledged.

Posted using Partiko Android

There are no standardized (at least at the time of writing this comment) banner for giveaway contests. The best banner there is at this point is made by a user named @katysavage with her banner down below:



Of course, just remember to cite @katysavage for making the banner! I mean, look at it: clean, simple and to the point. No one can realistic mistake it for anything else! So go and use it, but source @katysavage!

Oooh! I like this one! I might start using it!

;^ - will make a comment on yer contest in a day or two. See yah then.

Ha ha! At the laat minute?

We did create a banner for this purpose, and we include it in every update, but since we don't require that contests use it, it's not standardized. This one was created for the contests updates, but members are welcome to use it in their own contest announcements.

(BTW @katysavage is @josephsavage's wife, and she deserves a lot of credit for her patience, support, and background assistance.)

Response accepted as a qualifying submission.

Don't forget you can also earn points by scoring the clarity and helpfulness of other qualifying responses.

Rating 6 - This is a good choice for Banner, and stressing to cite the creator is good information. Would give 7 if the post also contained the other SBI created Banner.

I rate this as 6 only because I just read the reply by her husband confirming the image is copyright free. Crediting the creator doesn't make it copyright free and I was on the verge of rating this as 4 lol

Rating 6, missing the 'other' banner

I rate this answer a 7 - No edits needed.

Posted using Partiko Android

I think they you can personalize your own banner if you're having a giveaway contest. There's no standard banner

Rating 4 - Doesn't give an example, and the idea of personalising a banner, for non-technical people, would be overwhelming.

Rated 3. Nice idea but it still doesn't answer the question "do you have a banner I can use?"

Rating 3

Doesn't answer the yes/no question in the front. At least you can give example(s) if there's no standardized banner.

Rating 3, not really answering the question

Category 15:
What are the different types of units?

There are two types of shares that are relevant for all participants of SBI:

  1. Standard shares. Shares earned from sponsoring others or getting sponsored. This type of share lasts for a lifetime as long as your subscription is not terminated.
  2. Bonus shares. Temporary shares earned from delegating to @steembasicincome. Currently you get one bonus share for each 2 Steem Power delegated to @steembasicincome. The bonus shares will be removed when you pull your delegation.

Both types give equal benefits in upvotes.

I suggest to replace "units" to "shares" in the question. "shares" is more unique and identifiable term for a basic income program and it's more consistent with explanations from all participants on this whole contest.

7 clarity score

7 clarity score

Posted using Partiko iOS

Accurate. Management units (created at level of 5% of standard units) are also counted as bonus units. The prizes from this contest will be management units (bonus units), but they will be perpetual like regular units instead of dependent on delegation.
We are actually trying to move away from 'shares' as an SBI term to prevent our program from being misconstrued as an unlisted security. We originally said 'share' as shorthand for 'share of our voting power', but there has been some confusion around it.

Response accepted as a qualifying submission.

Don't forget you can also earn points by scoring the clarity and helpfulness of other qualifying responses.

Rating 6 - All the necessary info is there, and clear. I have deducted 1 for using Share as the prefered term is units.

Rated as 7. Nicely provides the basic/needed information.

Rating 6 nice summery

7 clarity point

Perfect answer.
Units is the more preferable term to use because potential legal issues cmiiw.

I suppose units also mean shares? If yes, then here we go...

Standard share: This is what you get when you sponsor someone.
Bonus share: This is temporary reward for delegation.
Management share: As the term implies, this is for the management team and set at 5% of the existing shares.
Temp shares: Management share that are temporarily awarded to members who help improve the program.

Accurate. Technically management units and temporary units still exist, but our database groups them with bonus units, which is why I am also accepting simplified responses that only have the first two categories.

Rating 5

While this is accurate, I don't think average users need to know about management and temp units.

Rating 6 - a good clear and concise explanation. 1 point off for using "shares" instead of "units"

I give a 6. Stated units as shares, good but does not properly explains Standards units/shares.

Clarity score 6

The one we get from getting sponsored is also the standard share...

There are 3 main types of units in SBI.

Type 1. Standard units.

These are the most common and are allocated as 2 units per STEEM. 1 is alocated to the account paying the STEEM, and 1 is allocated to the account sponsored by the payer.

Type 2. Bonus Units.

These are allocated to those that delegate STEEM Power to SBI. 1 unit is granted for every 2 SP you delegate. These units remain in place while the delegation remains.

Type 3. Management Units.

These are allocated to the SBI management and writting team. There are also "Temporary units" which are these management units that get allocated temporarily to another user.

Well done would give it a 5 for the formating

Rating 6, would mention management units in the bonus units section not separate points

I give you a 6. You could have been better at summarizing. BTW, I never knew about management units but I'm happy to have learned it.

Rating 6

Great answer and explanation written point by point but I don't think average users need to know about about management units.

Management units are merged with bonus units. Otherwise great answer!

I rate this a 7 - Nice formatting, clear answers.

There are a few types of shares that Steem Basic Income uses.

  1. Standard Shares are earned when you Sponsor someone else.
  2. Sponsored Shares are earned when someone sponsors you.
  3. Bonus Shares are earned by delegating Steem Power to @steembasicincome
  4. Rshares are earned by upvoting post by @steembasicincome
  5. Management shares that are capped at 5%
  6. Temp Shares that are given out to users that help improve the project.

Accurate. Very comprehensive, too! We only differentiate between standard (enrolled) shares and sponsored shares with respect to the refund policy. For all other purposes they are treated the same.

rshares are a whole separate deal... you do earn rshares by upvoting posts by @steembasicincome (the rshares value of your upvote * 1.34) but you also earn rshares at a fixed rate based on your SBI units (each unit earns 800M rshares per day) I was planning to leave rshares out of the FAQ as a more advanced topic, but there has been some call for clarity around them, so it will probably be broken out into a separate question (bonus category!)

Best Answer so far - change giving to given for a score of 7

So are you rating it a 7, or holding out until you see if something better comes along?

With the suggested edit it is a 7 - I updated my answer to clarify! Thank you!

Rating 7

Assuming SBI separates sponsored and standard units, this is a great answer.

This version of the answer gets a 7 rating - clear, on point and correct terminology.

Accurate. Response accepted as a qualifying submission (replacing the previously accepted submission).

Don't forget you can also earn points by scoring the clarity and helpfulness of other qualifying responses.

I give a 7 on this one. It doesn't mention about a possiblity of units been cancelled but I assumed this isn't very important as you hitted the hammer exactly on the nail.

I applaud you for always learning fast from corrections

6 clarity score

Great answer! It may need to state that bonus units are also removed if the delegation is pulled.

Rating 7, nice and clear

Did a new one with the working as unit and removed rshares

Rating 5 for this version - good detail but rshares is a different topic and "shares" is not the prefered term.

Standart Share (Paid or sponsored units)
Bonus Share (delegated units)

Rating 4

Saying bonus units are "delegated units" is plain misleading. It implies SBI units can be delegated.

Rating 5 - very simple and concise, a bit too short maybe and uses "share" instead of "unit"

Rating 5, a bit short and using shares instead of units

Rated 5. Nothing exists like delegated units. Could have explained for clarification. Also, there's a mix up of units and shares.

5 clarity point

Barely explains anything about the types of unit. The types are correct though.

Standard share: when you send steem to SBI or someone sponsors you
Bonus Shares: You can get this from delegating your SP to @steembasicincome(2:1 ratio)

Rating 6

Short and clear but could use improved wording.

Accurate. We are actually trying to move away from 'shares' as an SBI term to prevent our program from being misconstrued as an unlisted security. We originally said 'share' as shorthand for 'share of our voting power', but there has been some confusion around it.

Short and precise answer... Uses shares instead of units though.

Types (though they conform and reduce to one):

  1. Lasting shares: These shares are there permanently and are gained from being sponsored or someone sending N STEEM with your name in their memo message. These are the baseline unit of Shares and will stay lest blacklisted or refunded (these equally are refundable).
  2. Bonus shares: These are gained through SP delegation, also consistent and regular Upvotes to @steembasicincome. These shares are deplete-able and non-permanent; if you pull your delegation or stop upvoting @steembasicincome, then they will pull this bonus shares away.

We typically refer to 1 as 'standard' or just 'SBI'.
2 are not available through upvotes anymore, as that system was not as sustainable and we have shifted to upvote multipliers instead of bonus units as reward for upvotes.

You are welcome to edit your submission and I will review again (or you can resubmit if your edit is substantial.)

Rating 5 - a good effort but some terminology is not the current prefered usage.

I rate this as 5. The Lasting shares are now better represented and explained in the recent system.

5 clarity point

"Lasting shares" isn't the preferred way we call the "standard units" or "SBI units". Looks like good effort in explaining.
