Steemit Supports dMania with 500k Steem Power / Bot Rules Update

in #steem4 years ago

Steemit now supports dMania and has delegated 500k Steem Power to dMania. Thanks @ned 😊.
The Steem Power will be used to upvote posts on dMania by the dMania bot. With the new Steem Power, dMania can upvote more posts and attract more users. It will help us a lot to grow faster.

I made a change to the dMania supporters system so that supporters can opt out from rewards. Steemit will opt out from receiving rewards as supporter. Everyone who wants to do the same can now select the option on the delegation dialog.  

Bot Rules Update

I have updated the bot logic to make sure only the best posts selected by the community are upvoted. I don't do manual curation with the dMania account, because I think one person shouldn't select the best posts. There are too many posts anyway for manual curation by myself. I think the community should decide who gets upvoted by the bot.
The new changes prevent that users who spam and aren't active on dMania receive upvotes from the bot.

How to get an upvote from the bot?

The dMania bot selects a random post on the Trending page every time he reaches 100% voting power. At the moment the bot selects a post every hour. The bot will select only posts with above average upvotes and rewards. To get an upvote from the bot, create great posts and collect rewards and upvotes from the community.

 Requirements to get an upvote

  • Don't spam. Maximum 20 posts in the last three days.
  • Upvote other posts. Minimum 5 upvotes on other posts in the last three days.
  • Collect above average rewards and upvotes. Posts with $0.01 rewards and one upvote won't receive an upvote from the bot.
  • Every user receives maximum one upvote per day.

Support dMania

dMania supporters receive 15% of the rewards on dMania. The dMania bot uses the collected Steem Power from supporters to upvote posts on dMania.
To become a dMania supporter, you have to delegate some Steem Power to dMania. The minimum is only 5 Steem Power. The more Steem Power you delegate, the higher your rewards. By delegating Steem Power, you are lending your Steem Power to dMania. The Steem Power still belongs to you.


There are already over 100 dMania supporters.

and many more...

Well the best way to comment on a Dmania post is of course with a meme :)

Yes it is 😋

That's really a good news, but please fix the dmania bot to support original quality content only.

A lot of users are now posting copied memes/gifs and reposts from various sources.

There should be a way to keep them in check or at least a way for other members to report the miscreants. This way the bot would be vigilant of these abuser.

Lastly, I would suggest to lower the voting worth and increase the number of votes, but not more than 1 vote per day for any given user.


Copying a meme is of course a lot easier than creating one. dMania is mainly a place for sharing content, because it is impossible to know if you are the original creator. For memes it doesn't matter. A meme is basically a joke in form of a picture. For a joke it doesn't matter who the creator is. If you hear a good joke, you share it with your friends and family. It's the same for memes. The most important thing is that they are shared.

I still believe that original content will achieve more upvotes and higher rewards. If people repost, users can still flag that post and it will quickly disappear.

@zombee: I think this is the kind of thing, @trlotto correct me if I'm wrong, is referring to:

This is the entry on the homepage of dMania

This is the graph of the top upvotes found on

It's not necessarily a repost for dMania, but it's definitely not original content. Nor has it been changed in anyway, other than a title and emoji.

Based on what you've said here in the comments, this is okay on dMania, but I'm wondering how the original content is going to win out when it's the dMania bot running up the payout amounts.

Here, the dMania bot has a 40% upvote for $92.24 which is almost 83% of the current total payout. After that, the next five out of six are vote bots which were paid for, and are not, from what I understand, curated by humans based on any other criteria.

I think I saw a dMania original MEME and right after a few minutes somebody copied it under the same tag... The second one didn't earn anything.
Yes, it is easier but the only thing a re-post will get is a big fat zero, because there are so many similar MEMEs out there, joke is a joke but if you see it a few times too much it loses teh taste like pretty much anything else.

Just posted a new one!


I'm really glad about this! And I was wondering what is the criteria for voting, but I am curious what is the actual average votes and rewards on post, so you can qualify for vote? Thanks @zombee! :)

Like winning the lottery haha I love it!

This is definitely great news to meme maker and lover like me. More people will surely join the fun and start making meme. It also means more competition but that's where the fun is. I can't wait to see more great memes being created. Thank for updating us. Have a nice day.

"Requirements to get an upvote

Don't spam. Maximum 20 posts in the last three days.
Upvote other posts. Minimum 5 upvotes on other posts in the last three days

good solutions @zombee

just to be clear is that 5 full upvotes or are 5 partial votes acceptable?

also is it possible to make the bot vote at 60 % to make the vote over 100 $?

Atm the bot only checks for upvotes and not the voting power.
Most people want more upvotes not higher upvotes :). When the Steem price rises/updates the votes will be over $100 again. Should happen in next couple of days.

If it's already on the trending page, doesnt this mean you're rewarding those who are already rewarded greatly?

Not really, the posts on Trending have received only a few dollar most of the time (Trending and Hot are switched on dMania). Memes don't receive high rewards in general. That's why there is the dMania bot who helps you out 😉

Ah i see it's switched in dMania :P

I guess i'll be posting memes again lol. There are quite a number of copied memes (e.g. from 9gag) on Dmania though.

Eventually OC content creators will also come to dmania. 9gag is a place to go view memes, so we kind a need memes in dmania also. Users won't care if they are also somewhere else in the internet. Just keep telling about dmania to people and we'll see it become the best place for OC content. Last I checked, 9gag doesn't pay anything for their contributors of content. Should be a easy sell.

I am trying to figure out what dmania is exactly, can someone help?

Thank you very much that everything I wanted to know

then I'll go and start getting the best

this is an great news for dmania users hope in the future i will get my first upvote from dmania,i eagrly waiting for that moment really

its a great initiative. u deserve my upvote.

The dMania bot selects a random post on the Trending page every time he reaches 100% voting power.

So I posted my first meme on Dmania yesterday, my own meme and I figured out that I might not be able to make to the trending page. There were some big accounts who upvote their posts and as a result, their meme shows in the trending section. I saw some memes that were taken from Google and had huge pending payouts.
Anyhow, let's see how it goes!

yessss very true

Fantastic news for the people
Good post
Thank you for sharing news with us

hopefully more successful dmania

I haven't tried delegating my steem power. If I delegate some, when can this be returned?

You can pick it up at any time, but it takes a week until it is yours again.

Oh that's great buddy!
If I delegate 50SP how many SP would I receive in a week?

I do not think it is random because I do not have that very clear either, better question in the generic post.

The author is no longer replying.

wow this is very good information so many think update

Thanks for sharing informative update @zombee

Great!!! Dmania💟💟💟

I have upvote on some post's and also donate some SP to dMania to support, is their any chance of getting rewards from dMania.

great post! this is definitely the motivation we'll need in the community to keep the content real and interesting! not only that; but the Bot isn't bias or regulated to just a select few! great opportunities are in store for the content creators!! Thank You keep the Gems raining down.

a very interesting paper

Congrats!Can I translate your post to Chinese and introduce dMania to Chinese readers? Thanks!

@zombee in your supporter list you wrote @raggaemuffin, i think you meant reggaemuffin?

thank you for an update sir @zombee

Iv'e been enjoying dmania lately and it's really fun.

I think it would be more encouraging if the Dmania bot would offer smaller votes more often, i.e to more people. Other than that I feel the rules are pretty good, especially the one with the minimum number of upvotes on the platform.
I'll keep posting, maybe one day RNGesus will guide the bot to my memes

Keep up the awesome work.

yes !!!

Very good information @zombee, very useful for all who read your post this. Dmania is the best, I will try to share in Dmania. Thanks for sharing, best regards from me and success for you... :)

I pretty like the new updates. It prevents misuse and strengthen the dmania-community.

this is a sweet idea brother

want to make dmania flourish here, greetings from indonesia

Your post is really great. I found it awesome. I like it. Thanks for sharing with us.

Such creative reply is making my senses tingle. Please, keep fascinating our audience. It's on par with average meme stealer.

dmania is choosing randomly on the trending page. As far as I see, a user is giving multiple upvotes. Some users are constantly sharing on dmania they do not come upvote at all because of what it may be. @dmania

Great proyect

i want my delegated power back , i turned it to me 5 days ago but i didnt get it yet

Undelegation takes 7 days on Steem.

thanks for the info

hello osita, te veo por todas partes ¿me estas siguiendo o que?jjajajaja
me gusta verte por aqui

Hello delegate some power to dmania but I have not received anything yet, must I do something else ?, I'm not sure how that 15% works when delegating, can you explain me?

Hello delegate some power to dmania but I have not received anything yet, must I do something else ?, I'm not sure how that 15% works when delegating, can you explain me?

You will receive the rewards directly to your wallet like author rewards. There you can claim them.
For more details read

Hello just when I asked you look there and had $ 0 earnings, after your answer I looked and I had $ 11, as I saw that a while passed and I did not get anything down from 10 sp to 5 sp I do not know if those $ 11 are from the 11sp previous or 5sp now, anyway looking at that link appears on hold, when they become effective? or how do I request those $ 11

That stats weren't updated on the supporters page for a while. You have already received those rewards.

ok thanks but I just checked in my account and I have nothing of dmania, can you please check it or tell me when was the transaction date ?, if you look at my transaction history (in my portfolio) there is nothing dmania.
in the link you gave me, it still appears as pending.
forgive for all the inconvenience

You get your rewards like author rewards on Steemit. dMania doesn't send Steem directly.

hello thank you again for answering you are very kind, today I received something from sp I think it was 1 sp or something like that but I do not know if it is from dmania or from my other publication, how can I know when they are from dmania? Is there any way to visualize it?
(I mean the delegation profits not to my publications of memes in Dmania)

Atm it is not possible to see were the rewards are coming from.

i'm newbie on steemit also on dmania i'm really excited bout this 9gag verion on steem :) the funny&money :) perfect combintion :) very nice conccept

There seems to be a glitch where our profile and the 'upload' button in top-right corner of the screen disappears for some time and then reappears.

i did everything, upvoted funny meme and gif flagging not english languages but still dmania doesn't like my post :(

do you vote for low votes ? :)

why the bot select only a post from trending post ? trending post are already earning good money, why to not support new users ?

I think your Post is for a big group of people very helpful!
Thx for making this Website for us!
Upvote when your in my opinion @alokkamboj
