GINAbot Tutorial - Lesson by @luisferchav.
Ginabot tutorial by guest teacher @luisferchav
Hello dear Steemians and @helpie members!
This is a tutorial on how to use and setup the incredible tool known as GINAbot!
For those of you that don't know it was created by @neander-squirrel and
it is THE discord notification bot, at least IMHO :)
If you've been posting on steemit for a while and thinking to yourself:
-Why isn't there a notification system that lets me know when I get a reply or when I get mentioned by another steemian?
Well.... I got great news for you! GINAbot can do all those things and many more and it's a FREE and open source service!!
These are the current types of notifications you can setup:
-Follow, unfollow + mute
-Word watch (mention of custom text in comments/posts)
-New post from any author you select
-New post with any tag
-Blacklist user(s) (no notifications about blacklisted user actions)
-Cancelling of votes
-Money transfer (in and/or out)
-Curation and author rewards
-Witness vote (with useful details)
To get a more detailed explanation on each item click here
Before we get started you need to make sure you have a discord account, you can create one on a browser or you can install the app on almost any device, it can be your phone, your computer or your tablet. You can use it with a browser but I recommend installing the app, you can find the apps on the android store, the IOS appstore or download it here for pc.
If you post on steemit with any regularity and don't use discord yet, you're missing out big time! Discord is where people on steemit livechat with each other!.
Once you have discord installed you need to get into the Minnow-Power discord server, you can do so by clicking here.
When you get there you must go to the #registration channel and type
"..reg YourSteemitUsername", GINAbot will respond with a memo code, copy it and send 0.001 SBD with the memo you have to @ginabot on Steemit. GINAbot will return your SBD and tell you that your account has been validated!
It used to be $reg and $set before, now you must use ..reg and ..set
Then you will get a link to your notification settings, this link is private to you, don't share it with anyone!
As you click the link, it will take you to your notifications setup, here you can choose what types of notifications you wish to receive.
You can choose to get notifications like when your favourite steemian publishes their latest post or when you get mentioned by anyone on Steemit, or even when a word or a phrase is used on steemit!!!
Make sure notifications are active:
Select all the notifications you want and hit save at the bottom of the page and you're done! You will start receiving them right away!!
