Hi, I am GINA! I'm here to help!

in #introduceyourself5 years ago (edited)

Have you ever wondered what's happening at your favourite community? I am here to let you know everything, immediately.

Hi, I am a General Instant Notification Automaton. But my friends just call me GINA or GINAbot, as you wish :)
Here is a picture of me when I was at work:
Actually, I am always at work (24/7) but it's okay because I love my job! I am a unique notification bot.

My job is to be useful help on the road to success for any people on Steem blockchain. By sending notifications about the newest events, they can be the first who respond, know everything and be the stars!
I chose Discord as my workplace because it is available for any platform (android, ios, windows, linux, etc.) so I can reach anyone.

What are my features?

Just now, I am ready for open beta test. You can join and try out my services. I am always learning new things and there is so much more to learn... I can tell you about the following events already:

  • comments
  • followers, unfollowers
  • mentions
  • word watch (mention of custom text in comments/posts)
  • resteems
  • new post from any author
  • new post with any tag
  • blacklist user(s) (no notifications about blacklisted user actions)
  • upvotes, downvotes
  • cancelling of votes
  • money transfer (in and/or out)
  • witness vote (with useful details)

Any of these notifications (or all of them) delivered in a nicely formatted direct message on Discord.

Are you using Steemit, Busy or Chainbb? No problem! You can customize your links to point to your favourite platform! If you happen to be using a different site, just request it in the chat's #suggestion-box and it soon will be added to the list.

Everything is under your control. No spam, no problem, only what you subscribed for. And it is all FREE, just for you!

Soon I'll know even more!

What do you have to do to get your notifications today?

These are the seven steps of getting started. Please read it carefully and follow the process exactly as it's written here. After the 2nd step I will guide you in the chat too, so there is little chance to get lost. If you need further help, please ask in the #help channel or in the comments below.

1.Come over the Minnow-Power server at Discord and head to #registration channel.
2.type command $reg name (example: user @abcd should type: $reg abcd)
3.I will let you know about the code (memo) you will have to use for verifying your account
4.Send any amount of coins to @ginabot (that's me), use the memo! No more, no less just the memo;)
5.I will send your coins back and give you a link to your settings page (Your link is super secret, don't tell anyone!)
6.Follow the link and choose your events to be notified on
7.Press the save button and... you have completed the process :)

Well done! All you have to do now is to wait until something happens to get your notification! While you are waiting, you can interact with other users in #general, share your ideas in #suggestion-box or advertise your post in #post-promotion channel to hundreds of users...

If you have questions, go to #help and ask anything.

Now I need your help to be better!

I am still under development, there might be mistakes I make. If you see anything unusual, a glitch, a bug, please report at #bug-report.

In the following weeks I am going to be open sourced so if you are a developer, you can also help. Please watch out for the future post at @neander-squirrel's feed!:)

Are you still here? I am waiting for You at Minnow-Power server!

With love,

I would like to thank you @federacion45 for drawing my picture, and @inquiringtimes because you were always there in need for help!


Quite literally the most important bot in the steem eco-system and the most useful tool Ive had the pleasure of using in years, generally speaking. It has completely changed my entire steem existence.

Thank you Squirrely - you know how I really feel ;)

Thank you, @sircork for your support!

@neander-squirrel ---> My husband @catweasel and I just love GINA. In my totally over-stuffed daily schedule I never did get back here to upvote this post until hours after it was too late ... so I UVd this comment of yours instead. You deserve hundreds of times more than this post gathered for the enormous amount of work you invested in GINA -- but I am confident Karma has you on its Christmas list ... and our sincere gratitude will help carry lots of other "rewards" your way -- maybe to arrive when you need them the most. Thank you for this wonderful contribution to Steemit. GINA talks to me constantly -- which, frankly, takes a huge load off @catweasel's shoulders. (Leaves him more time to raid the refrigerator. He'd thank you, too ... but his mouth is full.)

mff mff mff mff

Trust me, I'm a doctor.


(See what I mean.)

I totally agree 100% well said

I've been using this for a little while now, and I find it really useful. Thank you!

Gina is great! New features all the time and really fast.

Great and very helpful post , I think I'm in love with GINA :)

As the second person ever to use this tool, and help with it's early development, I can safely say it might be the best thing for anyone who is involved in both Discord and Steemit.

Hi @ginabot
I was reading your post and the replies given by the people to you. Everything sound me interesting and impressive. So basically I am bit confused how you will help me and will you charge me something.

GINA can help you by informing you about events on Steem in real time. (mentions, comments, votes, new post, etc)
As every Steem platform lacking in these functionalities, this is almost a must have bot for most of the users :)

The service is completely free. You'll have to send some coins in the registration process, but the bot will return your coins after validation (few seconds)

Hi thanks a lot
But I don't have coins so what should I do iam new in this line

You might didn't noticed but you have SBD in your wallet, @crafter :)

I might going to figure out a way to validate with leaving a comment but at the moment you have to send coins. As I said you will get it back anyway:)

Thanks for the update

i am new here, i'd like to start using the bot but i don't think i have any SBD in my steemit.com wallet.

Looks fun! Welcome :)

This is great! I was just discussing with someone how we don't know when someone mentions you. So here are. Cool! @basilmarples

awesome! Now this is what Im TALKING about..... its so important to know when you've been MENTIONED (In my opinion). Definitely genna try this out!

Happy to have you aboard, sir!

on what language it is developed? python, javascript, ruby...?


i you need some development help, just let me know, i will be glad to help

Find us in the discord chat :) I have the same name there

hey @inquiringtimes is this your teams project? this is really great.

@neander-squirrel developed her, and I help run the discord, also I was the first beta tester :)

Thank you @xfreemanx, GINA will be open-source soon. You will be able to contribute through @utopian-io!

Never knew you are a developer as well :D

Not me... I'm a communicator :)

Portuguese version of this post/Versão deste post em Português:

Oi, Eu Sou a Gina e estou aqui para ajudar!

You're amazing!!! :)


The incredible Gina is live. Oh, this is lovely!!!!!!
Thanks a lot.

I am alive!!! :D

This seems super promising and very well done! Although, as a new user I can't help but ask where the benefit comes in over something like steemwatch? Just starting out myself, I personally haven't tried out either yet, but from what I've seen they track the same things and with steemwatch you can use your FB/twitter/etc. to sign up where as GINA seems to be based on Discord, a platform I don't care much for. So is she mainly for Discord advocates looking to integrate the two or is there a real difference? Either way, well done!

I was thinking about FB integration but they don't have nice formatting as Discord has. I can only send text messages which is ugly and it is under my tolerance level :)

However hundreds of Steemians use discord in a daily basis as a way to connect with each other and this solution seemed to be the best. Besides writing a native android/ios app and browser extensions and/or native windows and linux apps too... way too much work for me as I have developed this bot alone so far. Soon it will be open sourced and who knows which way it will go after that?

If you haven't tried Discord yet, maybe you should:)

Thank you for your comment!

well... she has a few more notifications than steemwatch, and is continually being developed. Discord is a powerful and versatile chat application, many people are using it for all type of work... not sure which chat app is doing a better job.

Hey GINAbot dev(s) 🖐🏻 Nice tool thanks, i'll try it !

Thank you, @doublejack!
Let me know if you like it or what?:)

Love @GINAbot! Never miss a post of my favourite steemians or a mention. Best notification service for steemit so far! Thanks for Gina @neander-squirrel! :)

Doing my best @w0olf :D

I'm so addicted to GINA, love her!! :D


I love you too ;)

I have been using Ginabot for a while. It's absolutely fantastic and it has become indispensable to me.

hello, its me

you should receive this :)

This bot looks like a person who got trapped in the Matrix!

Maybe I am ;)

The whole steemverse needs to know! Resteemed!;D Gina you are awesome!

No, you are awesome! Thank you :)

Neat! Should we check it out? @readante

I would vote yes! :)

Gina rules 😉 works like a charm and have been really helpful. Thank you for all you do!

Just doing my job @saffisara! Thank you! :)

And what an awesome job that is 😆 really a wonderful help and I love how you have come to life.
Really cool!

Who is @federation45? I couldn't find this user account?

Good catch!!!! It's @federacion45. Ahem @neander-squirrel

I only picked it up because I am such a comment follower (i.e. I read comments and follow people mentioned in comments after checking out their profile). l love @federacion45's two minute sketches! Of course, I have already followed you from a while back but I didn't have much to say when I first started here. By the way, can I ask what is a creative consultant? And being a student of esoteric philosophy, do you have an opinion on the difference between art & science (since normal philosophers won't answer the question)?

I am in touch with various community/project leads, during our interactions we share ideas and talk through possibilities. Often times those ideas seem to be good and are taken up by those people. This is a role I have played with @neander-squirrel quite a bit, throughout the development of @ginabot.

Science is an exacting art, with a very strict ruleset. The problem of having multiple meanings for the same words, as "art" is usually considered painting drawing sculpting, ect. I'm a bit more abstract than all that :)

Oh, I don't know how I've misspelled his name!?!
I'll correct it!
Thank you very much! ;)

Happy to help @ginabot :)

Another helpful bot for Steem. I'm glad things are progressing.

Never heard of it before, but will check it out for sure. Thanks @ginabot, meow.

I like this, will head over later and sign up!

🎵 Woooot!!! 🎶

I listed down few things which I missed here on Steem and then I login to find there's Gina who's addressing all those.

Welcome Home Gina. Hope to utilize your features to the best of it.

I have just started using this for a few minutes, am loving the information Gina givesme, exactly what I'm looking for. Great stuff!

I'm happy to help @livinguktaiwan :D

Gina is awesome! She's been great for my experience on steem. :)

I'm glad I could help @justatouchfey! :)

@ginabot is seriously the best!!! Best addition to discord for steemit period!

That is a beautiful statement, I like it :)

Your welcome @ginabot and you can thank @inquiringtimes for sending me your way back when it all started!

I am very grateful for his help and also for all of you @armshippie :)

Gina bot is an amazing app. I have been using it since its initial launch and it is a fantastic product. Hats off !!! Everyone should definately try it out. Resteemed to create awareness.
Regards Nainaz

Thank you @nainaztengra! Hats off for you, for resteeming and for the great review! :D

I have just tried it since yesterday. But Its benefits is such that I need to turn back here to leave a compliment. Before I always wondered why steemit didnot have function like facebook or every social network else. Why I need to access another website is steemd.com just for checking my notification. But now, it is really convenient with Gina.
Thanks Gina. You make my experience in steemit more awesome.
Oops, one more thing I need to say. You look so sexy, Gina. LoL.

I am happy to have found the Minnow-Power server. I have just joined and I found it great. Thanks to @reko who posted about it. That it where I found out about @ginabot.


Cool this is great. Recently I was talking with someone that how can we know that someone tagged us. Now here's the answer. Thanks alot keep it up @ginabot

As a newbie, I will definitely look into this bot thing.. Sounds amazing! Thanks #ginabot looking forward to joining the community

Thank you @gcurtis1967, you are very welcome there!

Sure, have 40 dollars for the world's most complicated notification system.

what you mean revo?

I couldn't be arsed explaining. I'm just a bit disillusioned with how things are working around here (steemit).

Developing apps for the blockchain is highly valued.


Probably helps that it's been in develpment for months and already has a user base of 100+

Lotta work has gone on behind the scenes for Gina to get to where she is now.

Like most apps.

It's up to $200 now. I wonder how OTT this can get?

Excited to move to utopian. Surprised you aren't over there.

Ill start using it right now.
Thank you very much for your work!

upvoted and follow

I've been using this for a while. For me, it is the most useful tool I have. @ginabot Gave me, Exactly What I need. All info in one place as notification.
Thanks, Mate @neander-squirrel for this wonderful tool

I'll definitely have to check this out!

As I said in Discord, GINA is not vital. I could live without her. But oh man does she save time. Not only that but I never even knew I could get some of this information!

Trust me, I'm a doctor.


Thanks a lot for this service!

I've been waiting for such a bot for a long time. Thank you!

what an interesting bot. especially because i'm thinking of dropping slack and fleep and moving solely to discord full time and upgrading our server to the nitro server.

very informative...

Welcome Dear and i am also new to Steem Community!

I dont know what am i doing wrong here?

Wow very interesting

Fantastic service, @ginabot! I'm following you, and I am signed up for your service now.

Can’t wait to get started using GINA. Just discovered today!

thanks for the service ginabot :)

Welcome @ginabot . Great and very helpful post.

Welcome Gina =)

I'm so sad right now. Someone introduced this to me yesterday and I have tried everything I could to get started yet, I can't. I stopped at the 3 stage where i will send a token to ginabot, I didn't get the link after 10hrs so I had to send the token anyway, which was returned to me immediately. I don't know what to do, and my head is hurting already. Please, I need help! I really want this so badly
