WHAT TO KNOW

  • UPGRADING DAILY Every day there are new features and changes and for those who love new bells and whistles this is the place to be. We post updates pretty often here https://beta.steempeak.com/c/hive-175001

  • COMMUNITIES ARE LIVE Communities are rolling and looking great.

  • FEEDBACK REQUESTED We love giving access to a raw live beta site because SteemPeak users know how we operate and that we thrive off of your requests and suggestions.

  • IT IS NOT FINISHED We would hope you know this by the very nature of the name BETA. But to make it clear you know and we know that Beta still needs lots more polish and lots more features. Several new features still have lots more to go.
    Then again will SteemPeak ever be "finished"? ... nope because we'll always be improving.

WHAT TO LOOK FOR

There's a ton that's new on beta so get ready for some cool changes

COMMUNITIES

  • First check out communities - https://beta.steempeak.com/communities
  • SEARCH: It can be a bit overwhelming searching through the 600+ communities. We've given some suggestions but also they're organized with an algorithm from Steemit INC showing actively followed. Once you follow them
  • SUBSCRIBE: Find a good community you can subscribe and then you'll have among many things a cool short cut on the top menu.
  • CREATE: If you're the type that loves building groups of people online go try it out. Also go tell your friends that they should be building communities on steem.

EXPLORE

  • The explore page https://beta.steempeak.com/explore got a huge facelift YESTERDAY!
  • This is a great place for a user (new users) to understand what all they can do to find users and to find content.
  • We suggest using explore to subscribe or favorite different topics, communities, badges, users...that way you can use navigation to go back to your favorites faster.

NAVIGATION

  • Check out the new top menu... the goal is to make it very fast and easy to get where you want to be.
  • Is it filling your needs?
  • Shortcut for your own profile is now top right menu.
    SteemPeak.com has lots and lots of features the goal is to help users get access to them all... and quickly... while not feeling overwhelming.

NOTIFICATIONS

  • We've switched to a much more complete system designed by @roadscape of steemit inc.
  • It will now show mentions, follows and community actions as well as a few other things.
  • It also shows votes above .02 which is interesting.
  • There are no customization tools for this notification system at the moment and not completely certain if there will be.
  • BONUS: If you have multiple accounts and use SWITCH ACCOUNT then the notifications system will make you really happy.
BADGES
  • An exciting new feature https://beta.steempeak.com/badges
  • This is a visual indicator of a group/list of users.
  • It's built on the back of a decentralized list of users... using an account system similar to community "hives"
  • However on SteemPeak qualified lists become badges and then you get some cool new graphical utility.
  • Presently you need to ask the @steempeak team if you want to create a badge right now. It will open up to the public later.

WHY BETA AND NOT ON MAIN SITE?

The main answer is that the 3rd party API that we use for communities and notifications is presently a BETA api and can change at any time. However we're still considering launching it on the main site knowing that our users will likely be understanding at sudden changes. We'll also consult with Steemit INC as to what they're planning on doing.

What would you like to see us do?


A WORD ABOUT STEEMPEAK COMMUNITY

https://beta.steempeak.com/c/hive-175001

This is where we're posting very frequently about BETA UPDATES
We also have pinned posts where you can easily give feedback and a member of the team will see.
Anything that you think someone else will benefit from hearing or seeing the response from put it in the community.


A WORD ABOUT MOBILE

The beta site works on mobile and we have a list of things to improve still... however we want to do an app and re-design this year... so we're not focusing as heavily on mobile in this particular release.
With that said if there's anything particularly annoying please let us know it's gonna take some time for an APP so we need to make sure Mobile is still a very pleasant experience for you right this moment.


A WORD ABOUT OUR WITNESS

Running strong in the top 20 for many weeks now.
We've long since added a backup block producer server and tested it and our monitoring software which includes an administrative interface to give SteemPeak admins access to witness things.

We've noticed it's a matter of one whale sized voter separating witnesses 9-19
So we'd like to invite everyone to throw a vote our way. We'd really appreciate it.

This works for all witnesses btw

Feedback so far I love it! I would love to see payouts of tribe tokens in earning calculations 😉 big ask?

Only bug I have found is trying to switch accounts on mobile I constantly have to sign in with steemconnect.

Great job guys 👌

Thanks for the feedback. Can you explain exactly where do you want to see the tribes payouts?

Under tools I think it would be cool to see it as a trackable metric... what tokens do I earn most & what weekly earnings can be expected just like the STEEM metrics maybe tribe specific engagements also. Plus inclusion on rewards tab to go with that 👌 might be a big ask but I think tribes wouldn’t mind the details available to users as well.

Funny thing, I just went on the beta on Steemit but in the back of my mind knowing I won't use it as much because I enjoy SteemPeak more. I was like, 'When are SteemPeak launching communities?' 1 hour later I spot this post....😂 😂

Thank you steempeak.

Yup yup! Gotta grab updates by the tail if you don't wanna be left behind! :D

Gotta stay up to date. But as expected, they are never far behind.

Thanks so much for the update on SteemPeak @steempeak. I love it, and utilitze it every day for my templates. It makes my life easy in terms of posting.

We're very happy to hear that. Templates do make life a lot easier.

Quick question. I asked in SteemPeak Discord channel support about my drafts, scheduled posts, and templates not showing up in the community. It was explained the two are on different servers.

So I'll have to continue using steempeak.com where my drafts and templates are.

Can I just use the hive-175-001 as the 1st one so my posts can show in the beta also? or if this not necessary because it's all show up when integrated at the end?

I think it's probably easier to copy/paste some of your drafts in the beta website ;)

This way you can use communities as they are supposed to work.

perfect. thanks.

Yes so that people know BETA.steempeak.com is a different website that steempeak.com ... their saved options on steempeak.com will not be on beta.steempeak.com

YES! I've been waiting for this!

Same x) I use chiefly Steempeak and having cool features only on Steemit was bothering me :P

excellent update! from now on i will use it, i have a question do you need help to translate your page to spanish? because i would love to be part of the team and translate it so you can reach a wider range of users @steempeak

A translation project is on the to do list for later this year ... just needing to finish a few other things

Nice idea! I only browse the Internet in English, but being a native Spanish speaker, I would love to help translate it!

I have been using this as my primary interface for about a weekk now and love it. As always some small things need work, but none I have not seen already mentioned elsewhere.

Don't be afraid to make a list/post/comment with a bunch of those small things. We'd love to see it. There's a bunch of them we have listed but helps to know which things are impacting others.

I don't know if it was solved but I made a small report on Twitter about a little problem I encountered.

(edit: tested, it hasn't been solved yet)

Contrast this with the normal behaviour where a link should become embedded as a media card on Twitter for the best sharing experience.

Thanks, should be working now. But please don't share links to the beta website. I'm not sure it will be available forever also after the final release.

Hahaha, alright. But if you move beta to production, and it's not working, it won't work in production either! :D

Great and thanks!
Next step: "There's an app for that"?

Lol, that'd be cool! I did look for Steempeak on Google Play. It seems the only Android apps are quite mediocre in comparison to the browser experience.

Giving beta a test now and checking out communities, looks really slick and enjoying it. Regarding the APP will you be going PWA like splinterlands did or native app?

I'm almost sure it will be an hybrid app (or a PWA) ...but not taken a final decision yet.

Wow. That's a good news @steempeak. I will give it a go soon. I promise. Well-done #steempeak team. Bravo

Posted using Partiko Android

Got to say I use steempeak daily and I am excited to see these new updates in the non beta. Communities is going to be a great addition to steempeak.

yes we'd like to move everything over to the main site as soon as possible. I think our users will be ok with a few unpolished edges... they'll let us know so we can polish them up right?
