I have no problem with Memes being rewarded as well - They obviously are a kind of art as well - at least in the eyes of many. There is a reason why memes can go viral and why they are popular.

But why on earth can @dmania not use a simple tool like the reverse picture search offered by Google and others? A person who is smart enough to create a bot definitely is not too stupid to do so.

Does @dmania just not care?

Seriously, I just don't get it.

I can do it a dozen times daily myself for @welcoming - How can a "company" with hundred times the SP not do that simple check before giving away serious money?

wtf.jpg

Self-Upvoting this to be above the typical mass of spam posts on trending posts!

·

It's insane, isn't it? So many rewards are going to plagiarised posts with the @misterdelegation's delegation just because dmania is another app on the steem blockchain and not just a person who would upvote good content.

It looks much better in the eyes of investors though.

·

😎👍😸✌️

·

This is actually true, if everybody just uploads some random stuff (memes) from google pics and gets upvoted for practically nothing.... they will integrate some reverse picture search for sure in the long run. The reason might be, and I m just guessing, that they right now prefer to have content uploaded and as soon as steemit reaches certain size of members / content... this "feature" will be gone... hopefully.

Good job @themarkymark . The dMania bot is BS. Steemit Inc would be better of delegating power to you.
I took my elite meme game else where! Original memes that even promoted their brand weren't worth anything over there.

dmania-hodl-bmw.png

Yeah I don't think this deserves $296.99 and 526 votes. Steemit needs to build a voting algorithm. Sad.

We are all doomed! Don't ya realize that? Look at the market cap now--it's tanking again, the bubble is now ripe to burst. The whole market is largely dependent on BTC and once the STEEM sinks in again below a penny, this platform is expected to become a ghost town of radioactive debris. Whales are not interested in rewarding those who are not a member of their inner circle anyway, now I am just here for the LOL.

·

Maybe you should just leave now then.

If you think it is a bubble you are clearly in the wrong place and crypto isn't for you.

Many have come and many will leave.

LOL

I appritiate your motive bruh.if I m heard you then sorry for that for sure

Your welcome :-)

No worries and it will go up again, just got to be patient.

Congratulations @themarkymark!

Shit Post Award.jpg

You earned it!
Image produced by me. Voted up for visibility.

·

Hey thanks. Suspect you didn’t get the point of the post though.

·
·

What makes you think that?

·
·
·

There is a point behind the post calling out and bringing attention to something that is killing Steemit.

There is a massive amount of plagiarism being rewarded and posted daily. The typical dmanian posts 5+ times and steals their posts from Reddit, Facebook, Tumbler, Google.

Many of them have lots of accounts doing the same thing increasing their changes for those jackpot votes.

·
·
·
·

Yup. I know. I killed this account recently. The moron was taking posts straight off of the trending page and posting them as his own. Then he went over to the RT site and started pasting articles from there. A few more weeks and he would have graduated to using bid bots to support his scam.

Dmania is fucking stupid. They rip off memes and earn while the actual artists here just leave, and that's really bad for everyone because the arts and entertainment industry generates billions per year... but I guess these investors here don't want a piece of that pie, which doesn't make any sense at all.

You folks selling votes better start charging an entrance fee and screening new members BEFORE they're allowed access to your services. For the life of me I can't figure out why you all do it ass backwards. Let the good ones in, keep the scum out. There's far more money to be made in honest advertising and promotion but it seems you guys don't really know that yet. You guys just make it a free for all then scramble and end up doing far more work cleaning up the mess. Counterproductive.

< sarcasm >Whatever though. Good luck with your post here. I hope that changes everything!</ sarcasm >

·
·
·
·
·

I have a massive blacklist blocking users who post stolen content and spam, also banned dmania and steemshot from being rewarded. The SteemBotTracker ties my hand from doing anything like a whitelist. SmartSteem tried the whitelist approach and didn't work. Very few bots blacklist and even fewer do the research to find abuse.

The best I can do right now is to stop serving the people who plagiarize, spam, scam, and fraud.

Unfortunately, it is very time consuming and ends up with a lot of retaliation abuse. I still spend 10-40+ hours a week on it.

There is a system in place to discourage these types from participating in vote bots and voting circles, but it is not being used.

< sarcasm >Whatever though. Good luck with your post here. I hope that changes everything!</ sarcasm >

It actually did its job, it is being discussed heavily in private channels and may result in changes.

You did a great job with the post!

·
·
·
·
·

I'm sure you have a good reason -- but could I ask why SteepShot posts are blacklisted? I understand that a lot of stuff on there is super spammy -- but there's also a lot of quality photography content as well.

·
·
·
·
·
·
·

The amount of SteepShot content I have seen that has been low effort spam far outweighed the authentic content.

I'm trying to do my best in offering promotion service but reducing the amount of garbage being rewarded.

·
·
·
·
·
·

Some change would be nice to see. A lot of people are becoming discouraged. By the way, the shit post award is just a joke. I was bored.

·
·
·
·
·
·
·

I'm not offended :)

·
·
·
·
·

"For the life of me I can't figure out why you all do it ass backwards. "

Really? You can't for the life of you figure out why bot runners (Marky and others heavy on anti-abuse partially excluded) would want to have vastly more customers throwing money at them?

More Customers > Less Customers seems pretty obvious?

·
·
·
·
·
·

Wait a minute here...

Are you trying to tell me these people don't really care about the long term health of their businesses!? I mean, if you were to hand over the exact same tokens you depend on to stay afloat to a bunch of people who's main mission in life is to take said tokens and run to drive the value down avenue exchange, all while leaving such a mess behind that other future potential customers feel reluctant to move into the neighborhood because it's overrun by crack heads and random tipped over shopping carts, do you see yourself thriving behind a dumpster after everything is said and done? And to think, most of these people don't even make money even though some dipshit started a rumor that one could make money so wouldn't that further disrupt the flow if their customers no longer had any money to give them because they took it all? Wouldn't quantity over quality in this scenario be much like an inflatable dildo that grows at the same rate their asses stretch the more they fuck themselves?

·

Wondeful your picture.

·
·

Yes! Yes it is!

·
·
·
·
·
·
·

Just leave Steemit now. We don't want you and you are a waste of space.

·
·
·
·
·

why do you say that? but this is my pleasure.

·

Is that a pickle. I'm Pickle Riiiick!

Well, dmania is getting delegation from @misterdelegation which is a steemit inc account. If anyone gets sued for plagiarism, it won't be dmania's anon founder. It will be @ned and the steemit team.

The reason plagiarism and spam florishes on steemit is that no one cares about sueing others for stealing their work. It is a big hassle and has legal expenses.

·

I believe, but am not certain, that everything other than text is stored off chain, and so if issues arise they can be hidden.

·
·

And I believe, but I am not certain, that half of the text is also plagiarized. Only a few thousand users, like you, care enough to be original.

·
·
·

Only a few thousand users, like you, care enough to be original.

Myself included as far as written content is concerned.

·

Pardon my interruption here. If we are going to sue every mother fucking plagiarist of photography and meme, then I am sure as hell there will be a legal congestion given the abundance source of this stuff circulating on Facebook, Twitter, and Google + being re-posted without legal permissions whatsoever.

·
·

The diff between those sites and steem is that money is involved in steem. Monetization is happening here. Compare steem with monetized sites like youtube not demonetized sites like google plus or twitter.

Can't the people behind steemit take dmania's steem delegation back until they improve their behavior? I assume steem staff isn't doing it out of scare of people loosing interest in steem blockchain but this copy paste thing is so not right + their "I don't care I just want the money" attitude is super bad for steem's repupation.

Dmania with their cool endless loop video feature could be a great place for former viners for example, yet they choose to slaughter this thing as long as it lasts. If this won't change, dmania will burry itself

It is disgusting!

cmon now... this isnt the way to use your power man @themarkymark regardless of the original garuidi post etc... You just trumped him by earning 300$ for a shit post... vs his 80$ WHAT WAS YOUR POINT? the PURPOSE?

·

If anything flag that user... We all knwo you cant stop this from happening, but you could have flagged his account posts etc, rather than JOIN him and make a shit load off the same shit... its the pot calling the kettle black if you ask me.

·
·

I did flag the post, but I can only kill $20 of it myself. But the post isn't the problem, it is the 5,000 other ones created daily just like it.

·

My point was to draw attention to it, it succeeded, it is being heavily discussed in private channel by those with the power to change it. I didn't earn shit, I spent more than I earned.

@dmania is the laughing stock of Steemit inc's delegations right now - and not for the right reasons!

With this much delegated SP, they have to be voting manually, and at least checking google for the originality of the meme.

@dmania / @misterdelegation - Sort it out!

·

That seems like an good solution. Did someone already ask them?

I'm still not sure if I totally understand this. So let me rephrase in my own words what is happening.

People post shitty memes with the tag dmania. Some are even plagiarism or directly from Google. @dmania got Steem delegated from the Steemit owners. And @dmania upvotes some of the posts with the tag dmania. Those upvotes are done by a bot. So anyone can just get a lucky upvote.
Is this about it or do I got it totally wrong?

·
·

That is bang on.

Considering the work that the likes of @utopian-io do with their moderation team, I don't like this delegation at all.

Nicely highlighted here M!

·
·
·

I'm not sure if I remember well, but this is probably already the second time M is trying to do something about this.

To be honest I don't know yet what utopian io is about. That's on my list to learn a bit later 😀

FUD is good!

If STEEM falls to a dollar I'm sure buyers will arrive.

·
·
·

Of course FUD is good, much more if delicious! Otherwise, we'd be starving for real.

What the fuck??

·

My thoughts exactly!

I really love this format of exposition, its like a rewardpoolrape porn style... ;)

Congratulations. You have raped the reward pool and shit posted while complaining about someone else's shit post and reward pool rape.

The irony is as delicious as Nutella.

I get what you are trying to do here, but it is pretty funny.

PS. I dislike the term reward pool rape. However, it does over-dramatize the situation well.

·

Only way to be seen is to be in trending. To be there cost me more than I’ll make back. This is one post for less than 1/10th dmania votes daily.

·
·

yeah, I delegate to them. I have also won the vote several times.

I do wish we were better at identifying original content on all the platforms. I just disagree that this is a bigger problem on dmania then on the rest of the site. It is just easier to identify.

I get what you are trying to do. (Grab attention)

·
·
·

It may or may not be a bigger problem but it is a very big problem.

Dmania only accounts for about $3,000 USD voting power a day on its own. Which isn’t insane, but it creates a huge amount of spam and stolen content that does not get rewarded with dmanian vote but are being pounded by bots to increase their changes to win the jackpot vote.

The fact it is stolen content really pisses me off. If it was Reddit and there was no money attached to it, have at it. But here it is the lowest effort content you can make that is greatly awarded and acceptable. Outsiders see this and flock to taking part of it or just increases the negative impressions of Steemit.

I can make an account and post a weeks worth of content equivalent to the average Dmanian in less than an hour. All five posts a day for 7 days and still have time to play a round of Fortnite.

·
·
·
·

So, I only have 12,500ish Steem Power, yet my account is 870th ranked by my own SP on the site. Many people above me own multiple accounts.

Nobody is getting rewarded without buying, selling or renting from those large accounts. My vote is worth a little more than 2 bucks.

It is imperfect and ugly, but I don't see how else we are going to achieve distribution.

I'm not going to fight over who is the rapeyist rapist on the site or which platform. Although I have before. :) And I might do it again.

I like you, I know you are trying to the right things, I just don't always agree on what they are. :) I was just poking at you.

Maybe we should encourage people to try to pry money out of the reward pool! Instead of funneling it back to all of the same accounts. :) That select few that have been deemed to be worthy!

At least dMania is spreading the rewards around. I know it is just another opinion, I see it as a win. I totally get that others will strongly disagree.

·
·
·
·
·

I'm not blowing the #rewardpool rape whistle here, dmania only accounts for $3,000 USD/daily in votes.

What is a problem is the massive amount of plagiarism that is encouraged and being rewarded. The fact that dmania users are spammier than any other user posting on average 5 times a day.

As I said in another comment, I can create a new account, populate it with 7 days worth of dmania prime content (5 stolen memes from Reddit per day) and play a round or two of Fortnight all inside an hour.

In fact, I can even automate it, and have it completely hands off if I so chose.

·
·
·
·
·
·

I argue that many are doing the same things on SteemIt automated, plagiarism, rewarding shitty content...

I can do everything you said... without dMania. It is just easier to see there.

Hey thanks for a great discussion and although I poked you a bit, I hold no bad feelings over what you are doing here. I just created an opportunity for a discussion.

I appreciate your willingness to discuss and expand on your point.

Hey thanks for a great discussion and although I poked you a bit, I hold no bad feelings over what you are doing here. I just created an opportunity for a discussion.

The point of this was to create a discussion, so I'm all for it. I knew many wouldn't like it but it's like pulling a band-aid off.

I argue that many are doing the same things on SteemIt automated, plagiarism, rewarding shitty content...

And you would be right, but dmania has opened the door to even easier content that takes even less effort and rewarded even more. If 90% of dmania wasn't stolen from Reddit it would be a different story. That's my real gripe it is mostly plagiarized content in the end. The $3,000 USD/day rewarded by dmania doesn't bother me, it's the distribution and what is actually being rewarded that does.

I'm no giant here and certainly not a top witness, so all I can do is make some noise.

·
·
·
·
·

I wonder if I should post my opinion in the form of pictures and buy it up to the top of trending to make a point and gain visibility.

I know I can, and I often wonder why I don't. I know it would be unlikely to get flagged and most people would get over whatever resentment they feel over it.

·

Congratulations. You have raped the reward pool and shit posted while complaining about someone else's shit post and reward pool rape.

I call it the Ouroboros Protocol of shit posting--only here on Steemit. Steemit is truly unique in many different ways. LOL!

This reminds me I need to pick up some more Nutella while I'm out today.

·

I think I have a jar from 10 years ago in my closet you can have. Still not sure how it entered my house.

·
·

Well, everyone gets their first mystery jar. That's how they get you hooked. First one's free.

Dont want to cause trouble, but how are 3 pictures worth $300. Its worse than the post it complains about.

·

The only way I could get on trending and get people to hear the message was to upvote it to $300.

It isn't something that was done for profit.

@themarkymark Nutella is a trademark of a hazelnut-based sweet paste created in 1949 by the Italian company Ferrero.

Umm, ok thanks?

·
·

lol, I think it is a google bot. They search the topic and post a part of the results. Sometimes they are good enough to trick people. :)

·
·
·

I think posting the google link is what kills the sell. What kind of person would post a google link to what they just said at the end of a comment?

Dear god, I spit my drink out of my mouth laughing when I read that.

Its time to reinvest in Cosby memes?

·
·

Hey Hey Hey! When someone makes a fortune as a comedian but then turns out to be a real asshole, I see it as my duty as a meme maker to go after them.

I also want to see quality on DMania. It is such a cool site but there is so much garbage on it. I saw this Nutella picture before this post and was just like WTF is happening here?

Very quality and optimistically nice, i adore this

hahaha, Nutella is love

I love to eat it

·

"It's a meme!"

Thank you for the good information.

Useful! I subscribed, I hope for reciprocity. Offer for everyone! Checking subscriptions every other day

·

Lol. You suck.

oh my god .. good news thanks.

It's not an easy issue to resolve. Trying to control how people spend their voting power will never end well. Cleaning up the plagiarism is a worthy cause, but redistributing wealth is not.

If a whale wants to upvote their own content or content others would see as trash, there's very little we can do to stop them. We shouldn't either in my humble opinion. The user's reputation by the masses may decline for always self-voting or voting for trash, but who's going to decide what is acceptable and what is not? There's no easy answer.

Some of the delegated power is strange to me even to the valid services that are doing good things. It sometimes makes me wonder if the people delegating the SP pay attention to how that power is being used or not. Maybe they don't care. Is it up to us to make them change their delegations though? I don't think it is.

The main problem with this issue too is that there will always be ways to game the system. No matter what change you make, there will be a way for people to circumvent the controls. I would rather have people abusing the system too than have a system like Facebook. The whole point of being on here is so there is no centralized authority controlling the content, right?

·

The whole point of being on here is so there is no centralized authority controlling the content, right?

centralized being the keyword, there is community control and unfortunately, it is rarely exercised.

I'm less concerned about the wealth part as all the dmania votes on a daily basis don't even come close to what Haejin takes on a daily basis, it's the encouraged and rewarded plagiarism and zero effort content.

·
·

The site was setup on purpose to keep the top dogs in power though. The reputation system seems to be the same way. If people with high rep want to raise yours, they easily can. If they want to lower it, they easily can as well.

I don't see how community control will ever work in other words without serious changes to the structure here.

The plagiarism issue is definitely a problem, and I donate 1K of my limited SP to spaminator to directly help the cause of cleaning steemit up. I also pretty regularly use the steamcleaner.org report webpage.

The zero effort posts bother me as well, but that still seems like a gray area. For example I saw a person who posted a single bible verse a day. Their post was literally just a one sentence line at times with no other graphics or effort. A bot could easily have made the posts.

There was one of her followers giving $20 upvotes to every single one automatically though. A form of welfare or charity from one person to another perhaps? I don't know why the posts were being supported, but I have mixed feelings over such situations.

I'll continue to look for spam and plagiarism as my time allows and help others doing the same. We'll never catch all of it, but at least our efforts will help. Thanks for keeping the conversation going too!

That Reminds me I Just go my Nutella ☺️

That’s simply crazy!!!

Desain dan keahlian yang hebat

thank you, your posting is good, I ask permission for my resteem in my blog, good work ... follow me.

Hahahahahaha... I never knew this. I'll definitely show it to my mom on sister since they always eat it.

Arghhhh!!! And I never knew about this.

Use to love it till I found out how they make it. Now I wouldn't feed it to my worst enemy's. Yuck discussing 😎😎

nothing disgusting about it, i mean do you even know vanila ice cream made from ? try search for it.

·
·

Anything with that amount of sugar and fat is definitely not good for you. i dont likenIce cream lol and it wouldn't surprise me that is has some bad ingredients. I try and avoid processed food. Only home cooked organic for me. 😎

·
·

Dairy and table sugar...two of the worst things you can eat are combined in icecream. Then we feed it to our children. Finally, we wonder why they are always sick. Ugh. It's stupidity.

Ok my friend we are on the same page..Food additives the poison of the 20th century.. giving kids soda and ice-cream should be an offence under child abuse laws...

Still love it. Novadays people eat a lot worse things. In nutella you at least get cocoa and real nuts :) That huge amount of sugar can be found in many snacks that I'm not able to eat, because they're just too sweet.

Sad to apprehend there are thieves here too, and extremely sad to witness what Nutella is today, from an Italian's point of view.

your post is very interesting, please help upvote for my blog @chukwudbem thank you

good job -

It should be strong to know the taste of hundreds of people ... it is as if everyone were conspiring to stop one from continuing. or is that everyone is hiring the bot ....

Dang it I've never tried nutella in my life, but will probably buy some tonight now!

Harambe loved Nutella.

#dicsout

LOL, may i have some for my bread

All I know is I want to try making this now lol

and they tell us it peanut butter , we have been tricked our whole life

·

You mean, except for the part where there's hazelnuts and not peanuts on the label, right?

Really? This is what makes the trending page?

·

There is a bit more to it than what it looks like, it's a statement.

·
·

Ok, whatever you say. 👍🏽🙄

It is bad that because of plagarism and copyright steemit is suffering but other mean people just indulge in making money by having more than one account with more than one names.Awful and obnoxious....

Hi! I enjoyed your post. Came a good time for me to read...life gets really busy. Thanks for sharing.

It's frustrating that delegation is going to this kind of thing and not to the likes of curie who actively find and promote good, original, non-plagiarised content.

PLEASE MAKE A SEPARATE PAGE FOR COMPLAINERS, PROGRAMMERS AND MEETUPS. THESE DONOT COME UNDER GOOD CONTENT. STEEMIT IS ABOUT GOOD CONTENT CREATING GOOD POSTS/BLOGS, STEEMIT IS NOT ABOUT STEEMIT.

HAVE YOU SEEN QUORA MAKING BLOGS ABOUT QUORA AND TRENDING?

STOP THIS NONSENCE

WE NEED TO FIX THESE THINGS FIRST:

a) We need good content on trending page, and no 2 liners or only specific content related or of specific members only or just a dinner shot.

b) Bots should review the posts before upvoting.

c) Need genuine Meritocracy, not fake (Give Fair chance to everyone, not just the rich)

d) Meetups/Programmer related should be funded privately, and not by trending, This is not called good content. Need a speprate page for it like an UPDATE or ANNOUNCEMENT page.

e) Or You can remove Trending and Hot page, so people will only look for content they are intrested in, using search bar or tags, & not upvote only for rewards.

f) We also need Reward limits and Posts limit. I guess if we keep max 200$ per post and max 5 posts, that comes to 1000$ per day means 30000$ per month. Which is morethan enough for any one to live life in any part of the world. and obviously you can invest in steem/SBD or other cryptos. This will also limit greed.

g) Also a minimum reward like 50 cents to 1$ (more or less i leave to experts) for every post with a minimum content (bots can handle this im sure) will give a boost to minnows, and will also lead to genuine wealth distribution.

All the above points will eliminate the "Central Banking System for the Rich only" type scenario that going on on steemit.

Reposting here as it gets ignored all the time..

你是怎么做到的

Good luck in your quest from minnows like me! I like Steem because I feel like my vote makes a difference, but not when just any crappy post can get a huge boost. Makes my vote more like plankton...

Oh this made me angry until I read the comments. If you wanted to make a point, donate the earnings to a charity. There are a couple of great charities by steemians.

·

There are no earnings, it was promoted at a loss.

nice post

Wow really great article! I'm amazed :)

Keep up the good work 👏PicsArt_03-15-08.15.53.jpg

Respect to you @themarkymark for raising this. You can;t stop there though. This is THE VERY REASON why steemit is broken.

If you have eyes to realize a shitpost getting rewarded then maybe you can take a complete look around and realize what has really become of this blockchain.

More like a blocked drain... all kinds of filth on that front page.

Like that Nutella picture.... it's bad but i like it anyway. My heart will probably tell me another tale in some years as I'm 44 and still eating this ""thing" ....

It is the strange thing, but is it funny?! I don't think so.

good post..

A few days ago i posted something about Nutella.....

There where not many views on it......

Not good to make copy&paste....

I like your pics, nice post hahaha

how do I get dmania to give my memes $50 votes?

Wow, that's easy 276 bucks right there! haha :D

I don't think non memers get what memes are. They are just gags usually with text added and some joke. Sometimes comes out as infographics or footage from reallife. The nature of memes is that they are tossed around. Right now dmania community is involved in the curation system. Honestly i really like the direction the voting bot is going tho it still has huge room for improvements, with the last changes it is going there. This is discussed amongst dmania community on discord also. Dmania bot is actually a community driven bot and thats why its improving slow.

It's not like you will eat the entire bottle in one day
