RE: Don't use vote-selling bots: use @promoted instead. A bot that upvotes you when you burn money!

If only the top promoted posts would get shuffled in to the trending tab - trending tab should start showing promoted posts every fifth spot. This is how other platforms handle it. Any opinions? Personally I never visit promoted.

Sort:  

Everyone who recognizes the problem, just should browse the promoted tag from now on. It seems to be on the right thing to support from now on!

I'm uncertain about it. For other platforms they usually take this decision for monetization reasons. Here, SteemIt.com or any platform that would implement this change wouldn't directly make money from it...

It's a complicated economic subject, I wouldn't be able to rationally argue about it, but I dislike the idea of the trending getting polluted by 'promoted'...

The ratio could be always tweaked. And the monetization would be the main driver here also except everyone would benefit rather than just the company itself. We can't ask users to "please browse promoted for support" -let's be real.

For example dvery 10th spot could be reserved for top promoted posts in the trending feed. Wouldn't feel polluted. And they would be marked as promoted.

Innovative thinking, right there. Great suggestion, @igster!
