HOW TO set up a Streemian Account and Follow Curators. Detailed STEP-by-STEP Guide

in howto •  2 years ago  (edited)

TITLE.jpg

Streemian is a service that allows us to copy the upvote or downvotes of other Steemit users. This can be a great tool for curation purposes. If you like the work of some great curators like @curie, @liberosist or @acidyo you can follow them and earn some extra curation rewards while also helping out the good authors out there.

Here is a step by step guide on how to set up your Streemian account and how to follow your favorite curators.


Step 1.png


Go to https://streemian.com and click on Register in the top right corner.

1.png

Enter your Steemit username without the “@”, email, Streemian password (NOT your Steemit Password)
After you hit Register there will be three things you need to do before can join a trail.
This should take you about 5-10minutes depending on your speed.

STEP 2.png


Verify Your Email

After you clicked Register Streemian will send an email to your email address that you used for registration. If you do not see it in your inbox check your spam folder as well.

3.png

Click the link provided in the email, you will be redirected to Streemian and your account will now be verified.


STEP 3.png


Verify Your Steemit Account

Send 0.001SBD to @streemian with the memo provided. This will verify that you are indeed the user of the Steemit account.

To send 0.001SBD got to your Wallet in your Steemit account. Under Steem Dollars you will see a dropdown menu icon. Click and navigate to Transfer.

4.1.png

When on this window you can enter "streemian" as the recipient.
0.001 SBD as the amount.
Copy the memo from the Streemian website and enter it here.
Click Submit.

Your Steemit account will now be verified.


Step 5.png


Unlock Your Steemit Account

Next we need to give Streemian permission to upvote on your behalf. There are many options to do this but I prefer to use the SteemJS Authorization App as it is extremely simple and easy.

5.png

You will be prompted by Streemian if you want to give them permission. Go ahead and click continue.

6.png

The next menu is where you need to enter your Steemit Username (without the "@" and Password OR Private Active Key. I suggest you use your Private Active Key.

7.png

To get your Private active key go to your wallet in Steemit.

8.png

Click on permissions and then look for your Active key. Make sure you select your Private active key.

9.png

After you entered your Username and Private Active Key you will see two green check marks. If you do not see the two green check marks make sure you followed each step correctly and there and no spelling mistakes in your username (remember without the “@”).

Make sure you have your Private Active Key and not your Normal Active Key.

10.png

When you hit sign in you should get a “Success” message.

11.png

One last thing to check is that your “Voting Weight Sufficient for Voting” is enabled.

12.png


Done.png


You can now start following curation trails.

To view the available trail click on Services and navigate to ** Curation Trail**.

13.png

You will see there are many trails to choose from. You can click on your favorite trail and select Join Trail.

14.png

After joining you now have the options to select how you would be trailing them. Click on the Curator you are trailing.

15.png

There will be a few settings that you can adjust according to your preferences.

16.png

Allow Upvote: Copy all the Upvotes that your curator makes on posts.
Allow Downvote: Copy all the Flags that your curator makes on posts.
Includes Votes on Comments: Copy all the Upvotes that your curator makes on comments.
Disable: Disable the trail, this will stop copying the curator on all votes made.
Required Tags: Only votes for posts with these tags.
Exclude Tags: Never vote for posts with these tags.
Scale Votes (in %): This will say how you copy your curator.
Example: If you choose 100% and your curator upvotes a post with 70% Vote Weight. You copied upvote will also be 70%.
If you choose 50% and your curator upvotes a post with 70% Vote Weight. You copied upvote will be 35%.

Max Post Age (minutes): This will set the maximum age a post can be in order to be voted on.

Remember to click "Update" after changing any settings.

This concludes everything you need to know on how to set up and join a trail on Streemian. Remember to keep an eye on your voting power. Following too many trails might be fun but might drain your voting power extremely fast.

Wow! That was really helpful!!! Thanks!!

I tried Streemian the first time and I didn't know how the auto-voting system worked, as a result, I ran out of SP and I unplugged...Thanks to you @scrooger y will give it a second chance ;)

·

Sure thing man, only follow 2~3 curators and with low percentages.

·
·

I will, thanks ^^

I'm stuck at the third step. Seems like there is some problem with Streemian.

·

Yeah they are having some problems at the moment, the SteemSJ is the best solution. Remember to double check and make sure you are using the right key. If it fails try again a bit later. Should work eventually. =)

·
·

It went through but Streemian still shows third step pending

Thank you for the guide

·

You are most welcome!

Always great work with the details! :D I tend to use your posts for references when im stuck or need an idea..thank you for the great guides mate

·

Wow, thanks dude. I try my best. This is something that will be needed quite soon. You know why ;-)

Your posts have been increasing in quality and content a lot lately. Keep it up mate!

It's a great way to support some of these trails and to improve your curation rewards. Bit weird to give your vote away, though.

·

You give your votes away all the time. No someone else is just giving it away for you. Oh, question. Would you give 1 or 2 votes away if you know you will get upvoted by a dolphin/whale? Like booster or randowhale. Instead of paying with SBD. You pay with a vote...

·
·

I would totally do that. Why? Is there an option for that somewhere? :D

·
·
·

Go check my feed. My new project is live. ;-)

@make-a-whale to the moon

·
·
·
·

Yeah, I have seen it. Also that someone flagged it. I did not quite get his motivation for that. He thinks it is a scheme.

·
·
·
·
·

Yeah, even though I gave my sources for my pictures he dissaproved. Maybe he doesnt like the idea... Competition for the pay4vote users. Don't know, ah well rough start but high hopes. What did you think of the idea?

·
·
·
·
·
·

I guess it is a nice idea for the current situation. But although I use @booster heavily I don't like that this is neccessary for most of us.

·
·
·

How is @booster working out for you?

Congratulations! This post has been upvoted from the communal account, @minnowsupport, by scrooger from the Minnow Support Project. It's a witness project run by aggroed, ausbitbank, teamsteem, theprophet0, and someguy123. The goal is to help Steemit grow by supporting Minnows and creating a social network. Please find us in the Peace, Abundance, and Liberty Network (PALnet) Discord Channel. It's a completely public and open space to all members of the Steemit community who voluntarily choose to be there.

If you like what we're doing please upvote this comment so we can continue to build the community account that's supporting all members.

Have you noticed any problems with Streemian lately? We created our own account that upvotes designated fans. Users follow this account as a curation trail. Nothing is working! I just posted to the "streemian" tag hoping for some community support. Any chance you could take a look and give some advice? Thanks!

Streemian does lag sometimes. This however is not one of those times. There have been some big issues with Steemit/blockchaing.

On Steemd.com it says "Node maintenance in progress. You may notice some features missing until it is complete."

I don't have a lot of details on this, just know it's something we have to wait out.

·
·

Hmmm. Good to know it isn't just me. (And sorry to know it is everyone...) Maybe some patience here will pay off. Thanks for responding!

Most welcome.

Hi @scrooger

Thanks for this very detailed guide, though I allready registered about 2 weeks ago.

I was pointed to your post because I have problems with my sufficent vote power, it's always disabled when I log in and though I'm following two trails no vote has been made since 2 weeks :(

I wonder if I messed up authorizing my steem account though it says everything is fine.

Can I somehow redo the part where I can choose how I want to authorize myself? I already searched but haven't found a way to redo the last step.

Thanks in advance and keep up the good work!
Followed you as your posts seem to be very well written ;)

Greetings from
Djangos story @juicypop

·

I wonder if you maybe used a wrong step somewhere... Not sure. If you have all 3 steps completed you should be allowed to enable your voting. Maybe somewhere along the line a key or something was entered incorrectly. Not sure how to go back and change it. Maybe create a new account with a new email is an option. Not sure if it will work though

·
·

The user interface over at streemian isn't the best I think
They sould consider an update of it

We'll see if I make a new account, at the moment my SP isn't it worth I guess

I got a bellyRub and this post has received a 4.29 % upvote from @bellyrub thanks to: @scrooger.

any body plz help me plz
two verifications are successfully finished... but i could not able to complete the third step unlock steem account step.... plz help me to get active

I've been on Steem for a while now, but I still didn't understand Steemian and curation trails very well. This post really helped me to get a clear picture of how it all works. I now feel confident to try and follow some curators out there. Do you have any recommendations on the scale votes percentage for someone like me, with SteemPower of about 800?

·

This is a bit of a tricky question. You will have to check out the voting patterns of the curator. Test it out with a small percentage. Say 10%, run it for a day or two and see how it affects you Voting Power. If you can handle it then you can up the percentage.

You can also see what kind of content they vote on if you click on their trails.

It worked great for me the first day.

Then I got an email saying -' Permission removed

One of our background processes has failed to deliver its service and noticed that you have removed the required permissions from your STEEM account.

It is your freedom to opt-out of our service at any time and we have marked your account accordingly. If you'd like to get active again, you can get your account re-enabled in your profile.'

I had not made any changes. If I try to re-enable. It hangs up on the 'success' screen. I'm assuming it is not working and I need to try again later.

·

Oh my this is very strange. Did you perhaps change your Steemit password? The only reason I can think why it would stop working.

Why asking for Active key for voting? should ask for posting key.

·

It's the app they are using. Not sure why they are asking for the active and not just the voting.

Is this service supposed to auto upvote?

·

Streemian is used to follow the voting patterns of other for curation purposes. If you want something that auto upvotes then maybe look into steemvoter. =)

Thank you for sharing. I happen to get a hang of it , today. Before wasn't making heads or tails of this Curation phenomenon. Very clearly explained! Bravo!

Very helpful post. i was searching for this on whole internet. TY @scrooger.

Another awesome guide. This is how I don’t miss out on upvoting scrooger even when I’m off playing Ark at 5 am hehe.

·

Indeed! This won't actually let you vote for someone but will allow you to follow somoenes votes. If you like I can make a guide about how you can auto upvote for the users you like =)

·
·

Think I'm auto voting from using fanbase? or I somehow without thinking keep upvoting you and forgetting I did. Either way, I think that make a great blog as well and it would fit in nicely with the collection you got going.

·
·
·

Fanbase? I always appreciate your upvotes and comments. Think you are one of the long term followers who I interact with the most. =) Thanks. I will make some more of those posts then. =)

·
·
·
·

You will have test It out. I'm not 100%. all I know is I put your name in a few places. Some times like today I don't sleep in past few days so I do thing and forget like upvoting people.

·
·
·
·
·

Interesting. Why you not sleeping mate? You need some good rest! Yeah, I also forget upvoting people. I am planning on clearing my followers and really on keep the people I interact with, like you. Will make it easier to keep track of it all then.

·

Too many things not enough hours in a year! I got 8 hours of sleep yesterday I think so I’m good again lol.

·
·
·
·
·
·
·

8 Hours is all we need to make us awesome the next day! I am currently in holiday mode, eating a bit more than usual but still staying away from the booze. Will make Challenge post at day 65.

This sounds great and i want to get involved but i am fairly new to steem and how my steem power works. could someone give me a rundown on steem power and how to manage it? any help would be great.

Wow! Thanks - I guess, this is the first post about how to do this trail thing, that I really understood! ;)

Thank you for your detail guide, I not hard to completed it. Thank you so much, @scrooger!

I´m waiting for 10 hours to get verified. I send the 0.001 sbd with the memo twice now but still not verified. How long does it take?

I like your posts. although I am still learning about streemian and curators
