In this post, I wanted to explore one potential gamification solution which with given positive feedback can be implemented on eSteem.
Gamification helps to engage us and at the same time increase our satisfactory level when we achieve something or reach some milestones. While we are enjoying social and monetary aspect of the Steem, we can certainly improve gamification aspect of different apps through achievements just like Stackoverflow or many other applications do it.
Although there are already some aspects which can be viewed as achievements, like getting X followers, X reward, X SP, X posts, X comments, X mentions, X reblogs, there is not really a way to give satisfaction/acknowledgement to the end user.
Reminding or acknowledging achievement of the user is quite powerful thing especially in a world of social networks and interactions.
This solution is quite practical one and maybe with future versions of eSteem we can try it out.
What if we can delegate user certain amount of SP for each achievements and depending on that particular achievement, there would have a deadline for delegation...
Let's take an example: You reached X number of followers and you would get notification on your device that would acknowledge and congratulate you on your achievement and delegates you Y amount of SP for Z hours/days/weeks.
This would not only encourage you to complete more achievements from the list but also gives you ability to empower and encourage others to do the same.
What do you think, would it work ?
Do you see any ways it can be abused ?
If you are designer or illustrator, would you help designing/creating custom achievement badges for eSteem app, let me know on comments or steemit.chat or
