Welcome

Many of you may be looking for a quick, to the point, How-To for
signing up and participating in the Minnow Support Project.

This community gathers at the PALnet Discord Channel, here:
https://discord.gg/HYj4yvw

STEP 1

Sign up and once you're signed up, type into the chat $register, followed by a space
and then your Steemit user name. Like this...

$register username

Then, send 0.001 SBD or 0.001 STEEM to the accounts mentioned, WITH an attached MEMO
in the SEND which is also given by the return message.

Send the 0.001 STEEM to the 2 accounts and then once again, type into the chat...

$register username

STEP 2

Navigate over to SteemVoter.com and Sign-up a new account.

Input the information it asks for.

Go to the RULES section of the website and add a NEW RULE
and then type in the username of the user you wish to vote for you.
You enter here minnowsupport
Set the delay time to whatever you feel like, default it fine,
and make sure to leave it with 100% Voting Power.

STEP 3

Navigate over to Streemian.com and sign-up a new account.

Input necessary information.

Then, go to this link:
https://streemian.com/profile/curationtrail/trailing/416

to find the profile of "minnowsupport" and click
"FOLLOW TRAIL".

THEN: IMPORTANT!

Add in your TAGS in Streemian by pulling down the TAB and entering them in the box.

can you explain this system to me balke samjah he dy ya kasy hota hy my totally new ho

A few things i can tell u here:

  1. Never ever copy paste your posts from somewhere else. Some of your precious posts are C P. Cheetah bot flags them with an upvote and you recieve very less votes for the post, as all get to know that it is a C P.
  2. You do have a reputation associated with your account. Default is 25. It increases as you get followers and upvotes. Downvote decrease it and may go in negative. So post original. Healthy for you and the community.
  3. For every post you put on Steemit and it's related platforms like Dtube, utopian-io, etc. You are paid for the upvotes you recieve. The upvotes you recieve may be of different weights. Some may be worth cents and some in dollars (the whale 🐋 votes). Yo post earns for the first week. After that your payout is made.
  4. The payout is made in 75%, 25% ratios where 75% of total that you see on a post is paid to author and 25% is paid to the upvotes using a formula. Pay out is made in SBD and STEEM, THE TWO currencies of Steemit depending on what you choose when you post. If you choose 100% power up , you will totally be paid in Steem power. For 50/50 yo will be paid 50% in SBD and 50% in Steem power from the 75 percent of the author reward.
  5. SBD you can cash out immediately, but Steem power you can not cash out immediately. It takes 13 weeks to Power down your Steem power into Steem and then you can do whatever you like with it.
  6. Steem power is your strength in Steemit. The more Steem power you have, the higher is the value of your vote and higher will be your say in the network.
    Happy Steeming.......

thanks for your precius time

·

·

yes, thanks also for that great answer.

have about 7 trails ... guess i'm set up now !

This post received a 3% upvote from @randowhale thanks to @rubenalexander! For more information, click here!

This. THIS should be on the front page of everything. THAT was an adventure to get through. THANK YOU!

·

You're most welcome. Cheers!

Hi, I'm stuck on step 1 after register, no clue how to send Steem to the 2 accounts. Please help.

·

You send from your wallet in steem. Find the amount of SBD or STEEM you have and next to it is a down arrow, click it and hit transfer. Don't forget the memo.

·
·

where do I find the two accounts that I am supposed to send the money to? @hypexals-spiral

thanks for this post! what is the use of writing tags here?

·

No problem!

The tags are for the website to know what articles tags your votes will follow and apply to.

hey @hypexals-spiral . I joined and became a member of PAL but whenever I request an upvote I only get 2 votes - One from Banjo and other from Minnowsupport.. shouldn't there be more? Are there any more steps which I may have missed?

·

If you're using the $upvote command any other users signed up for Streemian should vote on posts that minnowsupport votes on. Maybe it's bugged.

Do you have Streemian and SteemVoter set up properly?

·
·

Yes, that's what should happen.. My Streemian and SteemVoter is setup correctly.. Does one have to be a greeter as well in order for this to work?

·
·
·

No, just a member is fine.

·

I'm having the same result. Did you find a solution to this? Cheers

·
·

Yea, it's working for me now

·
·
·

Cool, what did you do to fix it? I'm only getting 2 votes each time I do the upvote request

·
·
·
·

Didn't do anything specific.. I think it's related to the tags that you use in your post..Not all people might be voting for those tags.

Will do this with my daughter @cmgsteems! Hope we can make it work for her. Thanks for the how-to!

@hypexals-spiral I have a problem with streemian account. i accidentally give them a wrong email adress and cant change it now. is there any chances that you can help me with that?

·

Sorry I have no control over Streemian accounts. I'd suggest trying to see about another account with a different account name and email address.

I did everything and I sent 0.001 to stemian, how does it work, what I have to do now ?

I did everything you asked for what next ?

·

Head over to the Discord chat server a participate in conversation and upvotes on posts after registration is completed. Message @aggroed at PALnet when youre done.

Excellent tutorial. Just completed everything. Upvoting also works like a charm in discordapp! Thanks @hypexals-spiral !

·

can you help me out

·
·

Of course. What do you need help with?

Hey hypexals,
could you add the info on adding the tags to streemian, as it apparently doesn't seem to work without tags?

·

I added the info. The important part is getting those who signed up to fill in that section!

I'll be making a week tomorrow, it's not easy but it's not hard, just got to figure out what times people are on 😂 or your posting to the sky
But I'll definitely be taking a look at minnowsupport

·

Good on ya. Cheers.

got it! thanks for the easy to follow tutorial!

·

No problem!

I must not be bright. Is there a specific group of tags, or is it what we feel we want?

·

The minnowsunite tags and related tags are helpful. Consider also commons areas like writing, adventure, art etc.

This is helpful, resteemed.

·

Appreciated!

Thank you!

ahh I didnt set up the tags...that helps! Thanks @hypexals-spiral

·

No problem, I forgot to add that at first because I thought the area you enter the TAGS in was more visible. Seems not so. Many of our first members still don't have it set up right. Have to track them down and let them know.

·
·

Sorry another dumb question.. does this mean now we use the minnowsupport tag on all our posts? Still getting my head around it hahaha

·
·
·

No just posts regarding the minnowsupport project or just supporting minnows in general.

Good way is to tag the posts will whats relevant to the post.

Some people use whatever tags they want, which I guess is fine...

Excellent post well put together :) Thanks this really helped

I managed to complete all the steps, thanks to your clear explanation!

·

You're welcome @redgaruda.

Please resteem for visibility!

Cheers!

Thanks for this. Going to check it out and see if I can manoeuvre through joining. New at this so there may be a question fired your way later. Cheers.

·

You're welcome. Don't hesitate to send a message or check out the Discord Server and ask around there. Don't forget to Resteem this post for visibility!

Cheers!

I can't see add rule option, i use mobile

·

Try using a desktop PC if you can. Don't know how it works on Mobile.

Cheers!

Steps 1, 2 and 3 completed. Im in.

I'm having trouble creating a streemian account, can't get the confirmation email

·

The link works sometimes. I don't know what's wrong with it's error. Odd.

·
·

I've completed the steps. Now, how'd this help me? Not very sure how it works @hypexals-spiral

·
·
·

You have to come over to the Discord chat server and follow the instructions on upvoting posts with the $upvote URL command.

·

You have to verify your Steemit account first on Streemian by sending 0.001 SBD with the provided memo and then unlock your Steemit account using the open source web application which prompts you for your username and private key. Then you can access the link and hit "Join Trail."

I was having the same problem but just got Streemian to work!

·
·

Ah right, I'm hesitant to provide my private key as it can be used to transfer funds @cerebralace.

·
·
·

Yup that's understandable. It's supposed to be super secure however and allow Streemian to only curate posts for minnowsupport on your behalf.

·
·
·
·

@cerebralace Thanks. I've completed the steps. Now, how'd this help me? Not very sure how it works.

·
·
·
·
·

The Discord bots will upvote your posts every time you pass the URL of your post with the $upvote command. Streem Voter will upvote every post of minnowsupport on your behalf. Once Streemian is set up, it will be able to curate every post with the minnowsupport tag.

·
·
·
·
·
·

"Streem Voter will upvote every post of minnowsupport on your behalf. Once Streemian is set up, it will be able to curate every post with the minnowsupport tag." I don't get it...

·
·
·
·
·
·
·

Essentially these services have been set up to automatically vote on every post that has the "minnowsupport" tag - that gets you more curation rewards and raises your SP. @aggroed is a great and very helpful person to contact on the PAL channel if you have any specific questions!

·
·
·
·

Hello @cerebralace i'm hestitant to provide my private key too. "It's supposed to be super secure", If you remember MtGox supposed to be secure too...

When i try to register to streemian and use StreemJS to unlock my account, i have this message "This operation requires your owner, active key or master password". Why Streemian require owner, active or master key whereas application just need to post and upvote, and in this case posting private key would be sufficient, like Steem Voter ?
Thanks

·
·
·
·
·

Very good point @nybble. You could just stick to Steem Voter and the Discord bots for now if you like. If you want more information on Streemian, please feel free to directly message @aggroed on the PAL channel on Discord - he is always very responsive and helpful!

·
·
·
·
·

good question. I would like to know too...

·
·
·
·
·

I agree that seems extremely suspect

Super useful post @hypexals-spiral! I managed to get the bots set up thanks to @aggroed and just now set up Streemian thanks to your helpful step-by-post post. All set and ready to go! Thanks and excellent initiative!

I like this way to help people get some votes, tell me please, what I have to advertise on my page to suppot this idea ?

and tell me, if you will have a lot of votes is that mean that votes that I get from this will worth more ?

I can't get past step one… the discord link takes me to a page where i can do nothing… i can not click on anything, or type anywhere…? It might be my 2006 iMac… i don't know… but i can't get any results… please help anyone..

I just started 11 days ago... I am a minnow :( However, everyone on steemit has been awesome so far... will take a look at minnowsupport. :)

·

Do you know how to delete a post?

I thing I doesn't like for that chat is that it's a big distraction and the noise and nonsense can bring you a headache. I found some of the people I follow there. Still worth, but I'd consume with caution.

Hopefully set this up right...now let's see!

Thanks for this post @hypexals-spiral!

Unfortunately, I can't access this link: https://streemian.com/profile/curationtrail/trailing/416

Message: "Internal Server Error. The server encountered an internal error and was unable to complete your request. Either the server is overloaded or there is an error in the application."

Just try later, or has the link changed?

·

You have first to verify your Streemian account. All the infos are in the end of the main page after you verify your email. :D

·
·

Thanks, my bad. I figured it out, all set up and good to go!

Appreciate the help. Very informative post.

Hello, I have a question
I'm at the streemian step but I can't sign up for it it says:

Register

Steem Account Name

tioluis
Error
Steem account already in use here!

but I never got an email or anything and I don't seem to be able to either log in or use my email to register a new account.
Any idea ?

I have a few questions if anyone can help me out?

I am signing up for steemvoter, the vote delay is default 20 minutes, isnt that too much voting or does it just check if there is a post every 20 minutes and vote if applicable, seems like it will drain too much voting power..... also does this mean I should never vote manually at all?

Next: I am in the discord chat and i tried the upvote bot, the first time it said it could not find my post then said i was in cooldown, do I have to wait a day if it doesn't vote my post or can i try again? Banjo was able to vote my post but not minnowsupport :/

Thanks

·

Sometimes the bots are a bit wonky. Sometimes minnowsupport will say you have 40000 cooldown but will have upvoted anyway after a few minutes, sometimes not.
Generally I would wait about2 or so hours.
Voting manually is fine and usually the way to go. 20-30min after the post for auto voting is ideal just keep an eye on your VP throughout the days.

·
·

Thank you for the reply. I thought it meant it would check if there was a post to vote on every 20 minutes. This makes more sense!

Hey So i've done all the steps how do i check or know if I am an official member???

i did all steps but still in pending i think so

Trollolololol good luck m8

Realize this is an older post, but hopefully I'll get a reply. I set up the tags in Streemian and had two quick questions:

  • Does the order of the tags I set up matter?
  • When I post, do I need to use only these tags in the order I listed them?

Awesome article by the way! Unfortunately I didn't find it until after I had completed everything except the tags section of Streemian.
I guess sometimes it's a good thing to solve the puzzles on our own...
Anyway, thanks again!

Me perdi en el paso 3, no abre el link.. que hago?

Do I need to create a new steemvoter account or can i used my old one?

·

The best way to help out Minnow Support right now is to delegate some SP to the account @minnowsupport.

I have some tutorials on SP Delegation. Check them out.

Step 3 I get a Server 500 error when I click the link.

I've used the Streemian unlock app and it says Posting authorisation successfully added

But the link to the curation trail is still giving me an error.

Can someone help?

Thanks

Thanks, wondering if step 1 & 2 are duplicated as they all ask for minnowsupport? Thanks
