Big list of bots who reply to posts on Steem

21 days ago
69 in steem-project

The list isn't so big yet but my hopes is that you can help.

I want to create a list of bots on Steem that reply to posts for various reasons.

On chainBB, every time someone replies to a post, it bumps it to the top of the forum list due to the activity. What I'd like to do is create a list of bots and then use that list to prevent them from bumping posts. It's not that this activity is any less important - but in the spirit of a forum to foster engagement, it shouldn't do this.

So my question to you:

Do you know of any bots not on this list that create replies to posts by users?

Here's my list so far:

booster
bot-helper
bot-helper
bottymcbotface
calva
cheetah
deutschbot
gaman
goodbot
ionlysaymeep
lovejuice
minnowbooster
minnowsupport
moisesmcardona
onlymanamana
randowhale
screenname
steemcleaners
steemitboard
steemster3
tippy
twitterbot
wang
weenis
welcomebot

Leave a reply and let me know which one's I'm missing and I'll update the list.

Oh my gosh, meep is a bot? And here I was thinking I had meaningful conversations with an actual human :-(

guess that explains why he wasn't interested in the 50SBD reward to say anything other than "meep", he wasn't "programmed" to care about monetary rewards! lol

Lol u hit me with this and can't keep but laughing about what u know about meep because you are not alone with it, u can count me too and it's funny knowing that it isn't only me who was a victim of meep hahaha, his a good listener and reply only little but meep hahaha. Now we know who's the bot to look for :) it's the funny side but it gives us good laugh and smile for a day knowing who is meep is, Steem on!

Recently it's hard to say if some user is a bot or not. I mean those "comment and upvote" comments all over.

·
·
66
  ·  15 days ago

Yeah, though I think those are mostly from newbies, so that's probably just copy/paste work. Annoying copy/paste work though :-)

·
·
·

  ·  15 days ago

I guess they're newbies and they obviously don't understand how Steemit works. I guess I'm still a newbie too but I wouldn't dare to spam people like this.

·
·
·
·
66

I'm still a newbie too but I wouldn't dare to spam people like this.

And that's the important difference. When I was new, I wouldn't think of spamming like that either. It's just basic human decency to not spam people. Being new isn't really a good excuse in my eyes.

LMA, I have done the same thing playfulfoodie. when I realize it is a bot, I talk back to them (Playfully) as some can be downright rude. I tell them to play nice.

Exactly :-) I like talking to Ionlysaymeep though.

Good to know I am the only one that talks to bots. lmaf I will have to check out @ionlysaymeep.

·

@playfulfoodie, I just followed @ionlysaymeep and left him this reply:
meep meep. Just wanted to tell you what a handsome bot you are. Love the red hair updo!! @playfulfoodie told me you were a man of few words but she thinks you are hot too. Meep me up sometimes. @thethreehugs. Have a meeping goodnight. Later dude. meep meep.
Hope you don't mind..after all he is a bot! lol..

·

So funny, I got a few meep's recently lol

I've had a couple of nice conversations with Ionlysaymeep. Just have to read between the lines (or meeps).

54
  ·  21 days ago

Yeah. there is one namely @bottymcbotface . I visited it's blog page and I think its a user who randomly comments on other people's profile. I don't if he provides them some kind of warning related to plagairism or something like that but it upvotes people's post and comment. But not like cheetah.
Anyways it'll be pretty good 'addition' to your list. Thanks for sharing mate @jesta

I vote we leave this robot live...
After all he was the first one to greet me when I posted my introduceyourself, and he gave me free steem! FREE!!!
Love that guy!!!(lol)

·

  ·  yesterday

I love @bottmcbotface. He told me to remember him when I get rich and I will! He's a nice bot!!

51
  ·  21 days ago

@bottymcbotface greets new accounts with a small tip. I know of another bot, one that, again, merely welcomes new accounts, but it's gonna take some time to dig that one up.

Great initiative! I recently realized that using bots to curate actually debases not only curation (and thereby Steemit) by injecting mere algorithms into human interactions, but also people, as that injection conflates those algorithms with the opinions and acts of sovereign people.

@liberosist recently posted a proposal to modify VP decay, and his proposal is designed to at least limit bots to the amount of curation people can do.

Clearly bots are useful tools. They are not people, and those tasks that only people are qualified to do, such as meaningful curation, shouldn't be undertaken by bots.

Robots can have my job. They can't have my rights.

Edit: re edited to remove unnecessary editing =p

Given his deep conversational skills, I refuse to believe ionlysaymeep is a bot, A.I has not evolved to that point yet.

Those two don't auto-reply; their replies are all hand-written. They should not be on the list.

@klye's bots. Like @tippy does interesting things.

How about @boatymcboatface? He talks on a first post in introduceyourself, I think.

And here's a new one: @gentlebot is going strong lately.
@officialfuzzy is tied into #whaleshares. There may be more in that group of whales. In this case, I don't think @whaleshares is doing the bot-ting.

Hi @jesta
I doe know for sure what type of bots are
But they reply automatically to all new introduceyourself posts
users @wang , @calva , @steemster3 & @weenis

Generally I mute them, but if I see any new ones I'll let you know. The problem I have is determining which ones are bots and which ones are just copy + paste spam noobs.

Does that really matter, should this kind of thing be bumping posts twice???

This isn't Reddit or 4chan bro, there is no "bumping" of posts.

True story, but i think @jesta is trying to slow down the bumpin' a bit unless I'm missing something.

Hi Jesta, what is the point I've twitter bot? I've always found it weird when I link to a tweet and embed it or screen it and then the bot links to it again ...

There's a new bot @discordia, though I'm not sure if it comments on posts yet as haven't used.

I thought Steemit board was a tool created to track your progress on Steemit... They give you challenges and you get given badges for completing them.

The badges aren't worth anything, though it makes me want to create more posts to achieve them... Not sure why?! It must just be my inner gamer instincts :P

@jesta, unrelated but important opportunity, have you seen this: https://steemit.com/chainbb/@aaronsuncamacho/15-140-members-of-facebook-group-need-to-migrate-to-a-new-forum-because-fb-is-shutting-down-kratom-pages-and-groups ?

I think their (American Kratom Association) main concerns would be the ability to moderate posts to prevent vendors from posting.

They are really great people fighting for a great cause and could use the benefits of STEEM and the funds that could be produced.

What are your thoughts?

Thank You for Being You!

I didn't see that post, that's interesting and definitely one of the benefits of being on a decentralized blockchain.

chainBB could definitely be an option for them. I'm not ready to on-board entire communities (yet), but that's one of the next major feature sets I plan on working on once I get the basic UI nailed down.

Why do you think/How do you know @ionlysaymeep is a bot?

·
69

Uses an app tag on the posts it creates - was my only clue, but figured it was enough. Unless of course someone literally wrote a program to only reply meep by hand :D

·

Uses an app tag

Could you elaborate? Google does not want to help me on this one... Would be really sad if he is automated. I always thought there is a bigger meaning behind the meeps and I even consider him a friend ;.;

I think eventually the bots will become more advanced as they learn with the help of AI. Steemit will have no need for humans posting content anymore and everything will be automated!

I just have some thoughts lately about detecting automated comments. Why not impose a standard of adding an additional data on "json_metadata" if a post is generated as automated.

automated: true

As for backward-compatibility for older posts, probably what you have suggested on having a list of bots.

I guess this data will be read by different applications as identifier for automated comments.

How do you enforce that standard?

One possible way is to create documentation for this to allow future developers to add a custom meta to their "json_metadata" for automated attribute if it's being generated autonomously.

It's like a specification for an ideal Steem post. (Example: HTML has specification to follow for it to be valid and readable with the web spiders)

Yes, the info bot on my account is not on that list yet. But it's not like I am a bot, haha.
With @ and any steemer name, you get info about you and the steemer of your choice :)

By just writing "@jesta", you summoned the blockchain info bot:
99.833% of steemers have lower reputation than jesta.
95.388% of steemers signed up later than jesta (2016.07.12 at 08:20:54).
3 steemers are followed by both of you. @furion, @ned,..
0 steemers are following you, that you two share.
Hope that info helps, qed. You can ask @qed for more details. Take care!

Yikes. Before you know it bots will be creating posts too. Maybe we should have some sort of captcha... screener.... that will flag if it is real person live or not. I don't do well with robot voices when I have to call for customer service. Robots are everywhere...

What exactly is a bot , cheers mike

·

A program that has a user account. They upvote, comment and/or post according to a script (code written by a developer).

some people see bots as negatives. I generally see them as neutral, but most Steemit bots as a positive. @deutschbot would be an example for a good bot.

I think the only important rule that any bot should follow is that they need to disclose the fact that they are bots.

hi @jesta!! Quick question for you...I've been using your Vessel software on OSX to great results this week. Except on one of the winners of my 15k sp delegation, the delegation seemed to go through, but I can't see it showing up on the user's account.

I was wondering if you wouldn't mind taking a gander? You can see the delegation on block #13896656. From itchykitten to photo-trail. It seems like it went through okay, but if you look at @photo-trail account, no delegation is showing?

Thanks, much appreciated, I know you've got a lot going on, so do what you gotta do.

Guessing here, but I think it's a UI issue on steemit.com.

Here's what I see:

  • You delegated about 5k SP worth to the account.
  • That account has ~2.5k SP, but is delegating ~95% of it to another account (not sure which). So effectively it has 0 SP.
  • The steemit.com UI displays (+2,418.239 STEEM)

What I think is happening is:

+ 2.5k SP (Account Size)
- 2.5k SP (photo-trail delegating SP to another account)
+ 5k SP (What you delegated)
= 5k SP (What's shown on steemit.com, being 2.6k Balance + 2.4k SP Delegated, totaling 5k)

So your delegation worked, the account has the proper total size, everything's working as intended... it's just a weird way to show in the interface :)
