holger80`s Curation League - please register for participation

in curation •  4 months ago

You properly know the The Curation and Engagement Leagues from abh12345. I plan to do something similar with the following differences:

  • Programmed voting allowed
  • Leasing or powering down/up of Steem Power is allowed

After some feedback, I decided that there will be different classes based on effective SP and used upvote weight.

I'm using my python library for steem in order to calculate the following quotient:
collected curation rewards within a week divided by effective Steem Power and multiplied by 1000

Collected curation rewards are determined by curation_reward virtual account operations.
I will calculate the effective Steem power value for each received curation reward. Therefore, change in effective Steem Power over the week does not matter.

To enter the contest, please write a comment with add me. A comment remove me will exclude an account from the contest. I will automatically scan the comments for building a participation list.

The following image shows the curation over time for my account:

Can you beat my 2.05 SP per week and 1k Steem power? If you want to know, then enter the contest by writing a comment with add me!

The first contest will start next Sunday/Monday.

uhh, bot race...there are some really nasty players out there. You have to switch off any ethical values to compete there :/

I think I will implement different classes:

  • most upvotes with 5% vote power or less (median) (bot class)
  • most upvotes with more than 5% vote power (median) (human class)

I'm thinking also about a penalty for upvoting accounts which are on a blacklist.

interesting idea to have different classes! Not sure, if the cuts can be defined easily. Managing a blacklist can be a mess - and pretty depressive to see what's happening behind the scenes on Steem :(

·
·
·

I have to remind myself frequently to focus on the good!

·

And also some semi-ethical bots too :D

·
·

haha, I still believe my bot (and his sneaky little trailer) are still comparably ethical - if this is what you mean :D

·
·
·

Yes I agree, and you are correct :)

Bots competition? :D Me and some other coders were declined from @abh12345's Curation League for automation. Let's compete each other here.

4.52 SP per week and 1k, ooh...

·
·

There are far better scores in the blockchain than mine ;)
Still adapting to the environment.

·

This will be a bots competition for sure! :D

·
·

There are always humans that can beat the bots 😁😬

·
·
·

We shall see about that :)

I wonder if @holger80 will set a minimum SP for entry, perhaps 100/200?

·
·
·
·

I think this is a good idea!

·
·
·

I've seen in the past with the results on my table that a low SP can produce some amazing looking results with the formula we are using. One decent curation hit can send the reward/1000 SP owned into the late teens - as the above commentator can testify :)

The opposite is true with a very large account and I would suggest that any account with 20k+ SP cannot compete with a 1000-5000 SP account.

·

You are right about low SP having an advantage. With 15 SP you can score 1 full point per upvote. Or sometimes even 2 points.

However it would be good to give everyone the possibility to participate. So I would say create groups if necessary.

·
·
·
·
·
·
·

Where would you create the groups? If you could split 2/3 times? 100-500-1000+?

·

May the best win!

·
·

I guess with mys' participation, every manual voting guy has lost xD

Nice!

I wondered if a real coder would turn up with a workaround for the delegation 'issue', and it seems like you've found the answer :) As I delegate often, I rarely appear in my own list!

I'm happy to see more of these popping up - anything to keep people coming back to Steem to see how they are doing.

I've entered my 'add me' in a different comment and am looking forward to seeing who the high-fliers are (so I can perhaps steal a few ideas!)

Cheers :D

(Resteemed as I'll likely have some interested parties follow me)

·

I have to collect the entire account history for each participating account, I'm hoping that the script does not take to long! (Hopefully, gtg will not participate :))

Thanks for the resteem.

·
·

Are you collecting from day 1 for each account? damn!

My pleasure!

·
·
·

Yes, I have to do this from day 1, otherwise, I would not know the current delegation amount. But, I'm planning to store the account history on disk, so that it will be faster.

·
·
·
·

Right :)

Yeah for those 2+ year old accounts that have been active throughout this time, that sounds like some serious number crunching. Good luck!

·

I have no idea what this is, but just add me.
Last place for me? :)

This is really a great initiative. Perhaps I will pick up my curation strategy a bit more often. As I also need to win this league a few times 😁

Are you planning to have a prize for the winner?

I am a manual curator and doing good for myself. Lets see how I compete with the humans and the bots.

1250 SP here averaging almost half as yours per week lol (around 1 SP)

I would love for you to keep track of how I am doing!
