Forget popcorn and pancakes, it's all about the pies! A graphical representation of the vote weight used to up-vote your content in 2018.
Anything tailor made to each of us is going to go down well. That's what's so valuable about them. A lot of data gets pulled, but when it doesn't specially have anything to do with us, it's just abstract information waiting to be applied. So, when you pull a list that we can see numbers of what we're individually doing and how that stacks up with others is very much welcome as far as I'm concerned. @glenalbrethsen - 2018
Last week I produced the opposite, showing the vote weight you use to up-vote content. 29 Pies were produced, I wonder if this post can beat that...
Vote weight is considered by those who like to take care of their Voting Power. I say this because some community members are not so worried about this percentage, and continue to vote when the VP % looks something like this:
Keeping your VP at a reasonable % (80%+) means you can recharge at a faster rate, and continually give out higher voting values.
If you are a small account < 500 SP, I am inclined to think that at present, you are voting fewer times each day with a larger vote weight, than a larger account which holds say 20000 SP. Doing this should improve your curation rewards take, and reduce the possibility of you giving dust votes out to comments ( < 0.03$).
With regards to curation rewards, it has been seen on many occasion in the Curation League, that an account with less than 500 SP has scored well voting 70 times a week. 10 votes a day at 100% vote weight, keeping the Voting Power up well into the 90%'s.
With this in mind, if you have a lot of support from Redfish or Minnow accounts, I suspect your pie will show higher incoming vote weights on average. If you are a large dolphin or orca, then perhaps the fish swimming in your pool are also of the larger variety, and use a smaller weight (due to owning more SP) to up-vote your content.
This hypothesis could well be a load of rubbish, the pies will tell all!
The pie will be sliced as follows:
WHEN weight > -1 and weight < 500 THEN '< 5%'
WHEN weight > 499 and weight < 1001 THEN '5 - 10%'
WHEN weight > 1000 and weight < 2001 THEN '10 - 20%'
WHEN weight > 2000 and weight < 3001 THEN '20 - 30%'
WHEN weight > 3000 and weight < 4001 THEN '30 - 40%'
WHEN weight > 4000 and weight < 5001 THEN '40 - 50%'
WHEN weight > 5000 and weight < 6001 THEN '50 - 60%'
WHEN weight > 6000 and weight < 7001 THEN '60 - 70%'
WHEN weight > 7000 and weight < 8001 THEN '70 - 80%'
WHEN weight > 8000 and weight < 9001 THEN '80 - 90%'
WHEN weight > 9000 and weight < 9501 THEN '90 - 95%'
WHEN weight > 9500 THEN '95 - 100%'
And your pie chart will look something like this:
- The data is taken from 1st January 2018 to present
- Only up-votes are included
As I thought would be the case, the largest slice of pie is from accounts voting with 95-100% weight. This is likely due to the large Redfish and Minnow support I receive on my content.
The next set of slices are all from the other end of the voting scale, and I suspect these are mainly trail votes. While every vote should be appreciated, I think these hold the smallest value as far as $'s go. The next 3 slices cover 20 - 50% vote weight and together are used 33% of the time on my content.
The vote weights that are used the least are 50 - 95%. I have a feeling that these are generally the least popular weights to use on content. I do use a 75% vote at times myself, but not often. Either the content is getting a full vote, or I'm likely to use 3-20% for the most part.
Due to the additional data divisions, these pies will take slightly longer to bake, but I will try to get them all done before they are burned.
If you feel that random, personalized data pulls like this are worthwhile addition to the Steem blockchain, please consider a vote for our witness:
