in SteemPeak4 years ago

Badges are a brand new feature for SteemPeak that are still in Beta with several more tools to come.
This post will give RULES / HOW TO / PROMOTION

There are already many badges already live in our list of badges
https://steempeak.com/badges

Some things still to come

  • Badge creator step by step UI
  • Ability to change the creator/recovery account
  • UI for user to proudly display or hide badges
  • Display a badge on a post
  • Easy badge URLs on Steempeak.com example: steempeak.com/b/utah

BADGE CREATOR TOOLS... Coming soon

A nice step by step UI for badge creation hasn't been created yet. But making a public list manually and then having them white-listed is not very hard either.

At the end of the post we'll share how to manually make a public list.

QUICK STEPS

  1. Create badge account
  2. Edit details of account
  3. Follow users on the account
  4. Commnet here to be one of the first 50 approved

BADGE HOLDER DISPLAY TOOLS

We are also working on some UI to help those that are recipients of badges.

Users shoulds be able to quickly:

  • Choose which badges to prominently display (assuming they have a lot)
  • Choose which badges to mute (they don't really want the badge)
  • Maybe some they don't want to show prominently but they are fine with having.

PROMOTION: FIRST 50 BADGES FREE

Badges are freely displayed to the RECIPIENTS from SteemPeak.
Free badges for badge CREATORS is a promotion we are presently doing.

First 50 qualified badges will be free for at least 2 years

TO QUALIFY FOR FREE BADGE:

We will your badges if you do the following:

  1. Can follow our directions below on how to make a public badge.
    (until we finish the badge creator tools)
  2. Be one of the first 50 approved badges.
  3. Be a great example of a good use of badges ... specially creative use showing something new.
    (Our first badges are meant to be good examples of what is possible with badges)
  4. We will also only approve positive badges.

Those are the types of badges we are gonna whitelist for now and add to the system for free.

DECENTRALIZATION:
Remember the public list aspect of the badges are a totally decentralized system... all the functionality we give to those lists are unique to SteemPeak. So public lists are completely decentralized but the badges are whitelisted by SteemPeak team.


RULES FOR BADGES

This is a new feature we are seeing all the ways badges can help our users so we reserve the right to change our policies on this.

  1. Must provide utility to SteemPeak.com users
  2. A high rate of muting the badge will result in removal of the badge.
    (In particular mutes by users who have been given the badge)
  3. Switching the description or name of the badge deceptively to something not in line with the original idea of the badge will result in removal of badge.
  4. You can change qualifications of the badge as long as you go through and completely update the list of users to comply with the badge.
  5. No opinion based negative badges.
  6. Must describe what the badge is about and why someone got the badge (qualifications)
  7. Creator account must be accurate ... meaning you may have to change it from the name of account creation services like blocktrades or oracle-d.
    (Ability to change this is a feature we can help with soon)

STEPS TO CREATE A BADGE.png

Creating a badge is about creating an account that act as a public list for the badge to use.

STEP 1. Create an account name it "badge-" + (six digits)

EXAMPLES: @badge-777777 , @badge-874543

  • Choose any 6 digits available
  • You may use any system to create an account but we recommend direct creation because we will display the recovery account as the CREATOR... otherwise you'll need to do an action to change the recovery account anyway.
  • SteemPeak.com does have the ability to use an account creation token

STEP 2 - EDIT DETAILS OF THE BADGE... USING ACCOUNT EDIT TOOLS

image.png
This is how you get to PROFILE SETTINGS
image.png

  • A: NAME OF BADGE... please make it describe the Recipients.
    See all the badges presently approved for examples.
  • B: ABOUT ... This one is more demanding because we want you to describe what the badge is about AND the why a recipient qualified to get the badge.
  • C: GRAPHICS ... Upload a SQUARE image that is at least 600x600. Or put a URL there.

STEP 3 - ADD RECIPIENTS

You now have an account where you can FOLLOW USERS.

  • We require you follow a good chunk of who you will eventually follow.
    Let's say about 50% in order to get approved.
  • Use the normal follow tools while logged in as your badge.

NOTE: You'll need SP to add users to an account. The resources credits needed to add people to accounts by default is limited. But you can add resource credits needed to add more users by delegating SP.
Go directly to profile - https://steempeak.com/@badge-888888

You can delegate to the account and then when you're done you can un-delegate by changing delegation to 0 or some smaller number.

STEP 4 - GET BADGE WHITELISTED

  • Put your badge name in the comments below.
  • Say why you think the badge will be useful
  • I'll review submissions chronologically from this post and approve.
  • If something is not listed correctly i'll say what needs to be reviewed.

WHAT HAPPENS AFTER 50?

Our goal is to populate the badge list https://steempeak.com/badges
So that's why we're giving away so many of them while developing new tools for badges.

  • We will still run promotions from time to time until the rest of our tools are completed.
  • They will likely be to get certain types of badges or challenges to find the most unique or useful badges.

Special promotions may be something like:

    • First to do 10 Location based badges
    • First to do 10 automated badges (coded to curate automated follow/unfollow)
    • Best 3 new badge ideas win

... Stuff like that.

SUPPORT OUR PROPOSAL

Sort:  

I have fully supported the idea of badges, and was glad when you announced their implementations. I am also glad for explaining all the process through this post. Looks great 😉

Hi there! This badge - @badge-202020 - is dedicated to the Czech Steemians. I believe that the Czech community should have its own badge as the content we usually create in our language is most definitely worth reading.

We just created the @SteemFlagRewards Community Moderator badge account (May go with SFR Flagger depending on the sentiment expressed by our community)

I was surprised to find that I was the first to claim the numbers associated with the loopback IP.

127.0.0.1 = 127001

Thus...
https://steempeak.com/@badge-127001

One of our community members, @saboin, made what I thought was a keen observation.

As for the automation aspect, I would like to automate the account to auto-follow once one of our moderators review and approve a flag reported in by our users..

I could also autofollow all users that have submitted flags in the past in our database for they are MANY! (Manually would take a LONG time)

Hope you like the idea. Let me know if there are any questions or issues.

Hi @asgarth & @jarvie

I've just created an honor badge for long time Photofeed members (already followed 50 people - more will follow).

Name: Photofeed Hall of Fame
Badge: https://steempeak.com/@badge-002300

Cheers guys! :))

We are adding it

here is a request for approval

@badge-654321

A badge for the members of the BEER community on Steem.

Later on we might add some more for the amount of BEER people can handle ;-)

I'm not sure why yours is not showing up correctly. Can you check the account name and description again.
Also description could say a bit more what qualifies someone for getting it.

changed and extended the description.

I build the account "as beeing a bad boy" not by editing it with SteemPeak but with Steemit - this might be a general error...

Please resubmit in a new comment when you get the badge to say the badge name. We added it but it didn't have the name... so i'm not sure what's working so i removed it. Let me know when it's ready in a new comment and i'll check back in tonight or tomorrow.

will do so

@steempeak sorry for commenting a comment not related to the topic. But, I'm very active promoting steem in twitter and I always share steempeak links there and promote your account in twitter. Can you share the updates from your twitter account as well ? There are a lot of active steemians there and most of them are sharing steemit links. It will be good if they will all learn about steempeak and share only your links. I hope to see you active there, at least share such posts. We have a big steem community active there.

Yes, I totally agree. I'll talk about this with @jarvie and we'll try to be more active on other socials as well :)

This is a really neat thing! I've just created one: https://steempeak.com/@badge-006660

FullForce Radio Fan

I've been doing my steem powered metal/talk show for three years now, and there are some amazing dedicated listeners who are as much a part of the show as I am. I would love to have this become something I can give out while on air to the people who help contribute to how fun these shows are and to spread the word! 🖤💀🤘

Really 666? Really? Hahahaha
You crack me up

JARVIE WHAT ELSE WOULD IT BE COME ON MAN IT'S METAL GEEZ OK
we should all be delighted one of the numbers of the beast has gone to such a completely harmless cult radio show!

love this one and tried it as well - but it was gone...

\m/

2nd try and now I add a !BEER to it....

here is a request for approval

@badge-654321

A badge for the active members of the BEER community on Steem.

giving you guys a head up that creating communities can currently only happen when logged in with keychain. Can someone confirm this? @steempeak @jarvie

Correct. I really tried to make it work with steemconnect, but the creation of a community involve multiple steps and some transaction must be signed with the active key, so currently it's supported only with Keychain.

Hi would you please approve this badge?

  • @badge-420420: The Canna-Curate badge. This badge shows people that you are a supporter of cannabis on the block chain, and proud member of the Canna-Curate family.

Thank you!!

This is such a cool idea!!

Added... i'd suggest removing the word badge from the account. We call it a badge ourselves
