Are you doing everything to maximize curation rewards? Heard of the 30 minute rule?
The 30 Minute Rule
If you haven't read the whitepaper, you should. Haha. But in case you haven't yet, here is something very important to note from it:
If you upvote a post that is less than 30 minutes old you loose some, most or basically all of your curation reward. Do not upvote any post unless it is at least 30 minutes old.
I recommend these two posts if you really want to understand more:
- Mind Your Votes! An investigation and guide to maximizing your Curation Rewards. by @liberosist
- Patronage and Profit: How to Get the Most out of Your Curation Time by @johnsmith
The routine as mentioned in the post from @johnsmith is what this tool will be most relevant to. If you follow his routine, this tool will help make it easier when you have a bunch of posts open and you need to monitor all their elapsed times.
I have created a bookmarklet to make monitoring the elapsed times of posts very easy! Take a look to see how it works:
To install, create a new bookmarklet in your browser (it helps to have the bookmark toolbar always shown) and enter the following for location:
Here is an example of how to do it in Google Chrome:
If you are using Mozilla Firefox, this bookmarklet will not work. If there are Firefox users out there who do want to use this tool, reply to me in a comment and I'll make an update for Firefox.
Let's say you have two posts open in two tabs and you wanted to monitor their elapsed times, it'll look like this:
As you can see, the relative elapsed time will be prepended to the tab's title. Also, the time will automatically update itself.
If you haven't seen SteemDown, it is an easy way to see which whales are powering down, when and how much.
Thanks! And Enjoy. Feedback is always welcome.
