RE: Steem Engagement Monitor Announcement | Check the activity of you favorite Steem Bloggers | By @alejos7ven

This is an interesting idea - I can't find a lot of authors that I know comment A LOT - are you filtering by the #engagementchallenge hashtag so users who naturally comment a lot more than they post (e.g. all of my accounts and people like @chriddi and @petface) aren't included at all?


I found you @the-gorilla 👩‍💻 You just don’t need to type in @ in front of the screen name. My screen name also appears there. We both have collected points already. I reckon you didn’t appear there when you checked before writing this comment as this tool calculates the points weekly and starts from scratch on Monday. When you checked early this morning I haven’t yet commented for the day so this must be why my account didn’t come up. @chriddi still doesn’t appear but I think this is because of lack of comments today but I am pretty sure that many points will follow. So only the ones who are not blacklisted and have points will appear there.

Hihi, yes, this is the second comment of mine this day. Lack of time because the weather is that great... :-))
Though I need no competition. Most of my activity on the Steem is commenting - it's the kind of social activity that makes fun and that makes sense. This won't become more or less because of points.

Great comment.

Thank you.
But: Zero pints... 🤷‍♀️... 😂

Boo! 👎🏼 We should get bonus points for commenting without posting anything.

Indeed! No post means no cry for votes... 😂

Did I ever tell you that Steemit has become more fun since I got to know you?! (5 points for me... 😁 )

No, I don’t think you’ve ever told me that. If you did, I’m sure that would be worth lots of points (more than 5).

Ah you’re probably correct. That was my first comment this week so I wouldn’t have appeared. I wonder if it differentiates between comments that are long and have some substance and the “great post” that seem to crop up a lot.

Yes, as petface said the bot started monitoring a few hours ago so you will appear in the system once you do something. Btw, accounts you mentioned are already listed

I have limited the list to the TOP 500, the other ones can be found using the search bar tool.

Any other suggestions is highly appreciated, I have a few ideas to improve it that I will add in the next days

My main suggestion would be introducing some more complex criteria - e.g. a minimum length (so “great post” doesn’t count) and additional points for longer (and presumably more meaningful) comments. I also set a limit on what each person can score for each post so that if 2 people just have a long, unrelated conversation, their score gets capped. I do something similar to this to review World Of Xpular’s top commenters and it filters out the spammers without manual intervention or blacklisting.

I also add bonus points for people who reply to comments that weren’t by the author. So rewarding people who not only read the post, but also take the time to read other people’s comments and join the conversation.

I find that these small changes help to differentiate between people who are commenting because they’ve “been told” to comment and those that comment because they’re interested and engaged 👍🏼

Very nice suggestions! Working on that, thanks for the feedback ✌🏻

You’re welcome 👍🏼 You’ll know when you look at the results whether it looks how you’d like it to so I’m sure you’ll be tweaking it 😊
