RE: OCD's stance on cross-posting and news about empowering niche communities
Can you imagine what communities would look like, say with 20k subscribers and anyone allowed to resteem their stuff onto it, though? Cross-posting is a bit more serious than just a resteem as it can affect your reputation and other consequences if abused. It's all still experimental and fresh out of the oven of course, we're trying to make the best use for it to also empower users to become good curators that crosspost onto the right communities. I'm surprised no one has created a bot that notifies the original creator if posts have been cross-posted but I'm assuming Steempeak will add that as a feature at some point similar to how they let you know when someone resteems your post above the post.
Anyway, the no self cross-posting will mitigate a lot of abuse we think, let's see how others use this tool and if the pros outweigh the cons. Early usage of new features/possibilities most often is negative in this technology.
Just when I was thinking of cross-posting into OCD a guide I made a long time ago for the new users ;)
Are these rules for curation only or are they also for moderation? Because I don't mind if I don't get curated as long as I get to share my guide.
If the guide is still relevant then why not, but maybe ask someone else to cross-post it for you instead. :)
Good question though, I think for curation mainly but if it gets spammy we might have to use the mute future.
BTW, I have a semi-urgent request.
I don't know if you've noticed, but the third post on the front page is by an anti-vaxxer promoting that idea. I made a comment where I copied and pasted a bunch of data I curated that partially contradicts that narrative.
I think it's dangerous to leave the data on its own, unchallenged, so if you could check out my comment, and if you agree with what I've said, I would appreciate if you voted around 0.1 STU to take it to the top, above the other anti-vaxxers in their echo-chamber.
I would do it myself but my vote is worth only half of what's necessary.
I shared it further, maybe someone with the time can read it through properly and curate. :)
I actually just got a biggish curation vote from a likeminded person, so I don't think this will be necessary unless a little whale passes by and upvotes some more antivaxx in the comments section.
Thanks, though! Let's hope my comments help people find proper education instead of relying on myths and populism!
There would be a lot of resteeming. Perhaps it could be set to subject to mod approval if necessary based on posts or accounts. It could also be limited the same as cross-posting. You are right though as it does seem more serious and would require more community effort.
One can search for beneficiaries, but not on Steempeak. I bet that will change in their next update. If I find losers are re-posting my stuff I'll downvote it.
Sounds a bit harsh. xD
You will then have no choice but love my new spam bot that cross-posts acidyo posts with a delightful message =)
The account acidyocrosspost appears to be free.
I think ginabot notifies you. Also, of I'm remembering right steampeak does tell you when someone cross posts your post in their notification, or activity, section... I can't remember off the top of my head what it's called.
I could be wrong about steempeak though, it was 5 days ago when I last cross posted content and my memory is crap 😂
