What vote weights do people up-vote your content with?

in engagement •  2 months ago

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.

Anyone hungry?

Cheers

Asher

Too funny XD Now I'm hungry! Hehe.

·
·

Why do most of your comments get upvoted?

·
·
·

Long-term users generally have an eager trail ready to sniff out any curation rewards that can be had :)

·
·
·
·

It's a good question though, I'm a long-term user and very few of my comments get voted for. Although I don't self-vote my comments so maybe that's why...

Thank you!

You may want to read Part 8 again as I have rewritten it and made it better :-)

Cg

·
·

If you like you can order a piece 😬
Which one should I put in a box 😋😜

·

LOL! These aren't pies!

·

Nice selection of cakes there! :P

Another pie from the same batch, these are all looking the same....

·

That literally made me laugh! 😂 And hungry... 😋

·
·

Perhaps you should also download actifit 😉

·
·
·

No, thank you. I'm okay. I don't want to scare myself with calorie counts and the likes. 😂

I find this really interesting! I'm guilty of the same thing, I Tend to vote 50+ And often do 100 Percent upvotes. I've actually been trying to vote with less power so I can spread my vote more. I miss those days when my vote was worth like 35.00 That was crazy!

·

I remember when your vote was around that! :D Hopefully it will be the case again in the future...

Would you like a pie @kaylinart? :D This one is for votes coming in, but I have pies for outgoing vote weights too here: https://steemit.com/engagement/@abh12345/what-vote-weights-do-you-use-when-up-voting-content

Thanks for stopping by!

·
·

Yes please! :)
These pies are very interesting hehe.
No problem. I need to get on here more and comment hehe.

·
·
·

Alright then! :D

Well this looks promising for you, most of the vote weight slices are being used, and I suspect not just by smaller accounts. Sooo, when the prices pick up I think your blogs will rise in value a lot :)

I am very hungry. Feed me with steem and sbd. 🤣🤣😂😂😃

·

I'm out of STEEM and SBD, but got plenty of pies left :P

The biggest slices are popular for most today.

Hello Asher, here I am, curious to see what my pie would look like, so plase can you generate one pie for me? :)

·

Hey Erikah, I certainly have a pie for you :)

Again, a similar looking pie to the ones so far.

·
·

Many thanks for my pie, I'm happy with it because this at least wont interfere with my diet :D

·
·
·

haha, 100% fat free this one, I'm glad you enjoyed it :D

I'd sure like to sample some of that delicious pie...

·

Let's see what we have for you @sparkesy43...

Looks like I've perfected the recipe, another similar looking pie.

·
·

Thanks Asher. It looks like your analysis overall is fairly accurate for the types of vites and voters in these pies.

Voting weight and power is not the whole story. I just upvoted you with a 100% vote with 97.47% Voting Power.

And yet, since 99.9% of my stake is delegated to someone else, my vote still doesn't mean a thing in SBD/Steem reward value. It's dust, I'm sorry.

However, I liked the post! Well done. :)

·

Well thank you very much!

Yeah these are just indicators shaped like pies :D

Pie me!

·

Pie incoming!

Same batch again, I think my brief post analysis is all I can offer here!

·
·

Thanks! It does similar to your analysis... although many more trail votes in my case!

I've thrown you a 62% vote on your comment, just to throw the numbers a little for next time!

·
·
·

haha :D

If you do that on every comment in the past week then maybe you'll shift 1% into that range ;)

I'm pretty sure 1-5% would constitute most of my pie lol since I got a lot of trailing accounts for being a member of some steem communities

Lets see if the trails change the pie...

It looks as if they have had an effect, slightly larger vote weights coming your way on average than most so far.

As always, I am interested to see this as I know I have some 100% followers but just got onto some curation trails with votes much less. However, I am grateful for each vote I get, no matter the weight or value! I take them as an indicator of being on track or feedback to improve. Thanks!

·

Let's have a look at your pie based on the above...

Quite a large % of full votes, similar to sparkesy43.

Good nice post and unique ideas thanks

·

Thank you very much :D

·
·

Most welcome

Please do make mine! I would love to use my pies in my 6 month progress post. And while I am here, thanks for guest judging the @pifc this week.

·

Feel free to use the pies!

Looks fairly similar to mine and Marks. Cheers!

·
·

Thank you! That was fast

·
·
·

I had a few cooling and ready to go :D

·
·
·
·

Smart move. But means we are predictable lol

Hi Asher. As you know I like your pies lol. If you have time and no rush it would be interesting to see mine. Thanks again.

I'm always hungry for pie :0)

·

haha :D I get a new pie gif with every pie post, I like it!

I think this one must have been near mine in the oven?

·
·

If I understand it right, that's definitely not so bad...except that the 100% people all have a $0.0 vote value, lol

·
·
·

I think it represents lots of low staked accounts going all out, and a group of big minnow/young dolphins who can give a 5/10% vote which is easily above dust.

Well Ash, I am curious about mine! I do expect a lot of 100% upvotes :)
Bake the pie mate!

·

Just pulling it out of the oven for you now..

A popular choice!

I really like your post - very informative. I appreciate the data and now it is clear that I need to ensure my VP is not diminished. i am a minnow aspiring for the heights via engagement - it is all good but now I know I should wait with upvoting because I am way below 90% at the moment.

·

Thanks :)

It looks like you voted and cancelled the vote twice? If you cancel the vote, you don't get the vote power back :D

·
·

Haha - I became confused. My voting power is at *0% thought it would be best to wait till it got to 90%. Hmm - good that I am here - still learning.

I hear there is pie here to go with my coffee...

Pie me please! 🥧😋

·

I'm having a coffee right now! :D

I'll take the biggest slice thank you!

·
·

Thank you! I’ll save a slice for you 😉

·
·
·

You are very kind :P

Can I have a whole pie, please?

·

Certainly can!

A rather lovely looking pie!

Plenty of full votes coming in, with a selection of smaller weight, assuming from your followers with a larger stake.

Cheers!

·
·

Thank you. I've had some voters with large stakes who've voted with small weights. Recently I've been getting a lot of microscopic votes, that is, small-weight votes from accounts with small stakes. I certainly don't mind at all.

The financial value is very small, though. I suspect some users may have found a way to advertise themselves in a spam-like fashion without actually engaging in spammy behavior such as spam commenting. It's rather refreshingly innovative and very hard to get worked up about. :D

·
·
·

It's rather refreshingly innovative and very hard to get worked up about. :D

For sure. I'd rather this than a bunch of spammy comments.

Good lookin out again kind sir! I got this brand new MGK dis in my earbuds, a fresh cup of joe in my left hand, Steemit in my right, and I knew I was missing something...

@abh12345, could you whip me up a dairy free pie sir?

·

haha, it was a dairy free pie... coming right up!

The dairy free ones looking quite like the rest :D

·
·

Thank you! I agree, most of the pies we’re seeing this time look a lot alike.

In good Steem tradition we clearly need a !pie bot! :)
A pity that the account @pie already exists...
Since you want to beat last weeks post by the number of pies, I'm doing my share: yes, gimme !pie, please ;)

·

haha, @pies has gone too :(

The 1% in the 70-80% range could well be me :D 50 votes in that piece. Most of these pies looking the same so far.

·
·
·
·

tasty, thanks! :)
My 95-100% range is larger than in the other pies until now. Just guessing: I've seen a couple of utopian contributions getting hundreds of 15 SP 100% votes lately, likely in the attempt to get a good share of the curation pie. Could be interesting to check this for individual categories across all users?

·
·
·

Interesting with regards to utopian-io, you could well be right :)

Could be interesting to check this for individual categories across all users?

Sounds like a decent analysis in the making :D

Hey, @abh12345.

For this particular pie chart, my guess would be more little votes than large, but I don't really know how those break up. I see so many smaller SP accounts voting in fractions and dropping dust votes that it probably skews my perception of it all. :)

·

I would be surprised if there aren't more 100% dust votes dropping by but let's have a look what the pies have in store:

A fairly even spread between the top VW and one of the lowest, go big or go home (with higher SP?) :D

·
·

Maybe that's another list/chart/pie to consider: size of SP vs. size of upvote. Not sure, based on what you just said, if you were surprised or not to see my vote weight distribution. :)

·
·
·

Would that be a personal, outgoing votes chart?

I think your's look quite good, with the 10-30 range coming before the < 5. Seems promising, but yes, without SP we don't know for sure.

·
·
·
·

Well, I was thinking more along the lines of where this:


Screen Shot 2018-09-04 at 10.17.33 AM.png

and this:


Screen Shot 2018-09-04 at 10.19.10 AM.png

might overlap, meet, intersect, cross, whatever. :)

Unless you think the percentages match up already.

Would be interesting to see this one if you have time Asher. I’m playing catch up and making my way down you blog.

·

Always got pies for @beeyou :)

This is the most commonly sliced type of pie today, top weight followed by lowest :)

·
·

Thanks much @abh12345! It's always interesting to see the stats. Have a great week!

Totally hungry for a new pie, you bake them
so perfectly @abh12345 and they do go great
with morning coffee! ☕ :-)

·

Second one today to be enjoyed with coffee :)

And the popular pie of the day strikes again.

·
·

Thank you very much! ❤ @abh12345
Pie with coffee, maybe that is how coffee
cake was created ;-)

Since I'm half Dutch I would like an apple pie, please!

·

Right on!

This looks to be close to the most post popular pie of the day :)

I hand out upvotes left and right .. at this moment my VP is at16 % .. I been as low as 8 % possibly lower that I didn't notice. I figured my vote isn't worth much anyways so I rather give out encouraging upvotes to many then less then a penny to a few. Once I become a dolphin my upvote strat will change.

If you got the time I would like to see mine .. thanks for all these graph posts. They must take allot of work to do.

·

These are the vote weights coming in, and yes, 3/4 minutes per person.

It's the popular pie choice :)

Let's have a look!

I gladly order one .... bring My 8 months voting show clear in colorfull charts. Oh and @a-pie-request is still available 😉 @demand-a-pie too

And still not selfvoting My blogs BUT DAMN THATS HARD !!!

·

haha, you can do it!

Another popular pie choice :)

is it to late for my pie?

·

Never too late for pie :)

A popular choice, but quite a bit % of top weight votes.

·
·

hmmmmm didnt realise I gave out so many 95-100% votes. Need to check what I am doing there and who they have been going to

I'm curious too
Hit me with a pie @abh12345
And thank you

·

Sure!

Different to many, lots of smaller votes coming in :)

·
·

Ouch!! haha
Ok, need to figure this out
Thank you 😊

If you get the chance @abh12345, I would greatly appreciate it.

·

Sure thing :D

Similar to many of the pies being produced :)

·
·

Thanks, @abh12345. It is. Kind of funny how that works. It kind of shows us how we need to look at our own voting. Sometimes 100% isn't the way to go. Even though that we would love to give everyone 100% vote, its' not possible, it kills your VP faster than anything.

Congratulations @abh12345!
Your post was mentioned in the Steemit Hit Parade in the following category:

  • Comments - Ranked 9 with 93 comments

@abh12345, if you are still making the charts, I would be curious to see my results.

·

Still a few pies left in the oven :)

Another popular flavor :D

This one is intriguing, can I please get a pie chart for my account.

·

Yes you can :)

This is the popular choice of pie :)

·
·

Awesome thanks, its an interesting pie, will have to check out the other ones on the post.

You got a 34.98% upvote from @ocdb courtesy of @abh12345!

OK lets see mine.

·

Let's have a look!

A smaller slice than most for the 95-100% votes :)

·
·

A lot of redfish who have no vote and vote 30 + times a day. They think it is more important to vote then to vote where they can get a reward from their vote

·
·
·

They should really be aiming for 10 votes a day and writing some good comments :/

·
·
·
·

I have turned blue in the face talking about that one simple thing. Yet I get votes from people with 15 SP and there voting power is 20%.

Then they get a slider and they are Opra. you get a vote, you get a vote, everyone gets a vote.............LOL

·
·
·
·
·

And their curation rewards fall of the map 🤦🏻‍♂️

·
·
·
·
·
·

I am doing a post about it and my pie. will not get it done for a couple hours. let me know if you see any errors in my assessment.
