New SBI Member Lookup Tool

in steembasicincome •  11 months ago  (edited)

Steem Basic Income

Steem Basic Income is a social experiment to bring a basic income to as many Steemians as possible. Members join by sponsoring others into the program. Steem Basic Income is delivered through providing regular upvotes to member content.


Many of our members use the #steembasicincome tag for their contests, so check there for contests that we might not have resteemed!

Membership Lookup Tool

This week we released on our Discord server our new membership lookup tool.

This is much easier to use than the full membership tracking sheet that we explained in "Pulling Back the Screen".

Understanding the Tool

The SBI Member Lookup pulls information directly from the full tracking sheet. To better understand the underlying information, we still recommend reviewing "Pulling Back the Screen" if you have not read it before.

Name Entry

The sheet can be 'edited' by anybody who has the link, but everything is locked except for the top line. This is where you would enter your name to lookup your share counts and upvote values.

Edit: (21 July 2018) We have had edit privileges for anybody with the link, so that anybody could use the sheet by typing in their own name. Unfortunately, the Steem community has proven unready for that level of access. Our sheet has been sabotaged twice since this post was published only six days ago. In order to protect our members and keep this level of information and convenience available to you, the sheet has been locked for editing.

In order to use the name entry or check your payouts on hypothetical posting frequency, you have to save a copy of the sheet to your own Google account. If you don't have one, please ask politely for somebody in our discord to help you with looking up your account.

Pool Membership

The 'Actual Shares' column is the column that most members will be using the most. It shows how many shares you are registered for in each pool, based on total enrollment transactions received. This is the column you should check to verify that our count matches your expectation.

Below the pool listing, we show the date of our last data pull (used for tracking your posting frequency and history of upvoting posts by @steembasicincome). After that, we show where we are with processing enrollments. If you are missing some shares, check here first to confirm that the enrollments are older than the most recent enrollments that have been processed.

Adjusted shares

The 'Adjusted Shares' column shows the total shares actually used to calculate voting values. This will include bonus shares from delegation, management shares, and any multiplier from upvoting bonuses. The relationship between these elements is explained in "Pulling Back the Screen".

Estimated Values

The estimated upvote value you should receive is presented in the next columns. Since your share counts determine your weekly upvote value, this is presented first. Below your adjusted shares is your posting frequency. We use your four-week average or your last week actual count, whichever is higher. This helps to protect voting power from potential abuse.

One common point of confusion is weekly value versus per post value. Weekly value is fairly consistent per share across pools (although there may be some slight differences), while per post value is driven by your own posting frequency. To see how posting frequency changes might impact your upvote value, you can also enter a hypothetical posting frequency (either higher or lower) to see how that changes your upvote value per post.

Actual Values

If your upvote weight has recently been changed, please check your actual value received in the last week against the expected value shown in this sheet. In most cases, if your weight has been decreased, it's because it was too high before (e.g. based on a lower posting rate or lower total number of shares in your pool). Sometimes the adjustments may seem sudden since rebalances are still performed manually and not every pool can be rebalanced every day.

Rate Limiting

Over the last month, we have experimented with rate limiting in some of the lower pools. While adjustments based on posting frequency work well to protect voting power from potential abuse, they result in scenarios where the compensating changes may be sharp and unexpected.

We occasionally receive complaints from members who don't understand how the posting frequency impacts their value per post. To simplify the issue and reduce sharp changes, we will be deploying rate limiting across all pools, as shown in this table:

PoolVoting AccountMax posting RateDeployment Status
Pool 1@steembasicincome3 per dayPending (eta 30 July 2018)
Pool 2@sbi23 per dayPending (eta 23 July 2018)
Pool 3@sbi33 per dayDeployed 19 July 2018
Pool 4@sbi42 per dayDeployed 17 July 2018
Pool 5@sbi52 per dayAlready deployed
Pool 6@sbi62 per dayAlready deployed
Pool 7@sbi71 per dayAlready deployed
Pool 8@sbi81 per dayAlready deployed

(eta = estimated time of arrival) Dates are estimates based on expected time available to manage this transition, and may be subject to change

You can experiment with hypothetical post frequency to see how this impacts your own shares. You are still free to post less frequently, as your voting weight will still respond to your posting frequency changes below these maximums. If you post more frequently than the maximum upvotes permitted daily for your pool, you might not receive upvotes in all pools.

Since there is some impact on members in the 1 per day pool (as it may result in some posts being skipped due to bad timing), we intend to limit the 1 per day to our bottom two pools. This means that when we launch pool 9, pool 7 will be changed to 2 per day. Pool 7 members will then have more flexibility around posting frequency.

We may continue to move members down through pools when their posting frequency prevents them from receiving upvotes greater than 0.50% in their pools, but this will happen much less frequency with the new rate limiting and gradual transition to 400 members per pool.

We expect to transition from frequency rate limiting to rshares rationing once our automated system is in place. I will publish more about rshares and how our new system will work with them as we make enough progress to have an estimated completion rate.

The Rest

Below the lookups are some very important messages highlighted in yellow. They provide context and information about the sheet. Since I may change the wording of those messages in response to feedback or program changes, their current wording is displayed here for transparency:

  • Adjusted shares include bonus shares and upvoting bonus rewards
  • Please note that NOT all tools show three digits of precision. If your vote is lower than 0.005, it may print as $0.00
  • Upvote rules are managed manually, so some short-term deviation from expectation may occur. Please request a review only if the deviation exceeds 10% for longer than two weeks.
  • Once our systems are fully automated, a complete review of all accounts will be completed for expected rshares granted versus actual rshares granted. Underperforming accounts will be rewarded rshares balances to catch up missing votes.
  • All Upvote values are heavily dependent on STEEM/SBD valuations and can be extremely volatile. Average daily volatility for STEEM exceeds 10%, and average daily volatility for SBD exceeds 15%
  • Pools 7 and 8 are upvote-frequency limited at 1 vote per day. Pools 5 and 6 are upvote-frequency limited at 2 votes per day. Members with high share counts in multiple pools may lose some vote value by not posting frequently enough.
  • Set your hypothetical posting frequency to match your actual and then compare hypothetical weekly with estimated weekly STUs.

Enrollment

If you want to get involved or to increase the share of basic income that you receive, enrollment is very straightforward:

Just send 1 STEEM to @steembasicincome. Include the name of a Steemian to sponsor in the transaction memo (preceded by @). You and the person you sponsor will each receive 1 share in the program. You can sponsor any active Steemian, it does not have to be a current member.

Please check out our full transaction memo guidelines and let us know if you have any questions.
https://steemit.com/basicincome/@steembasicincome/steem-basic-income-new-transaction-memo-guidelines

The official currency for enrollment is STEEM. We are not currently accepting SBD for enrollments. Enrollments are validated manually, and currently take 6-7 days to process, as we are still catching up from a recent family camping trip.

Locked except for B2 and E2... oops; supposed to be B1 and E1 that you can edit. Fixed it now!

·
·

LOL Thanks. minor stuff there. If the corrections on my posts were on a count I would be embarrassed. Thankfully I have people who tell me.
Thanks for returning my SBD. I already redid it with Steem.

·
·

I have checked B2 and E2 sir. It is still locked from my side.

I am super exited to go to the Steem Creators Conference. Can't wait !!!

·

Found that little announcement buried in the post, I see... ;)

can you explain briefly, I can not fully understand your intentions ,, thank you very much

·

Click the link to the google sheet.

Type your name in the giant box the arrow points to.

See your expected weekly value in the sheet.

What is your native language? You might benefit from the different language rooms we have in our Discord.

·
·

thanks ,, i will give it a try

This is where you would enter your name to lookup your share counts and upvote values.

Either I’m incompetent or it doesn’t work with iOS.

Any idea when you’ll get through your backlog of share purchases? I’ve sent in Steem for at least a dozen accounts over the last week or so, none of them seem to have gone live.

·

Right now processing a full day each night (keeping delay from extending past 6 days) while I catch up on rebalancing some pools that desperately need it so that we can avoid wasting voting power.

Once that is done, I will make a push to process 2-3 days of enrollments each night and get things caught up completely.

This tool works perfectly. Now it's easy to track the share in each pool. I have just sent another 5 Steem for another 5 shares :)

Hey there!!

I'm trying to use the sheet, but, it won't let me put my username in there to look up my shares. I've been donating to a couple contests, so, was just curious as to where I was at. :).

@Steembasicincome - can't wait to see you all in Toronto!!

·

We had to restrict it due to persistent vandalism. In the 'File' dropdown, look for 'Make a copy'. After you save a copy, you can enter your name in the copy to use the lookup.

Hi @steembasicincome this is a great idea and makes it so much easier for members to locate their shares. Upon which note: We should have approx. 33 shares but only see 20, is there any chance you could double check our account?

·

You have shares that are still pending. Those will appear over the next few days as we get caught up on enrollments.

You are a master of Excel, dayum

I'm a little afraid to ask, but how many hours a week do you spend maintaining this awesome program?

If it has a lot of pretty repetitive work I'm sure there are programmers out there who can pop by, but maybe the excel formulas on there are enough

·

Too many hours! We are starting to make good progress on automation again, thanks to some great people that stepped up.

Very nice tool. I just checked it out and it works perfectly. Thank you for the update. 👌

Just found myself! This is indeed a lot easier!
Thanks!

·

You didn't like using Ctrl + F across 8 pages of names?

·
·

It work but it was a hasstle. This will make things much more faster and easier!
Keep it going!

That's cool... I really hope the automatic system will work soon😊 so you will have more time for your family rather than answering a question about "why don't I get any vote, i've sent 1 steem with my own name"😂

I wish that one day... there'll be a simply way to check my shares just by typing ..sbi-ms or !.myshare on discord and it will be so cool.

Wish you all the best @josephsavage, thank you for your time.

·

Funny thing is, even I asked this question when I waited for a while and didn't find my name... Sometimes people just don't read.

"why don't I get any vote, i've sent 1 steem with my own name."

wait... own name?!!
·
·

Hahaha.. that's the most question I read on discord channel😁 some people just too lazy to read the FAQ😄 Thanks God... there's so many people with exceptional emotion who will answer the question patiently

·

One day there will be something even cooler. Announcement coming hopefully in September...

·
·

Whooaaa.. couldn't wait for it coming... I'll keep my eyes on it😐 unblinking.

Thanks for the up-date and new search tool.

This is a much easier tool to use. Also helped me understand about the varied amount I was getting per post (I hadn't read that there was a limit, before, but that makes perfect sense). Thanks! :)

·

We're glad that the new tool is helpful!

Thank you for allowing me to make my very own copy! This is a great program, and I cannot even imagine the entire level of complexity with carrying it out. Even in just my own journey, I have had vastly different voting frequency since the beginning of the program, dropping down to no posts for almost two months and now slowly working my way back up to a post per day and more. What you have done to keep this program working is fantastic, thank you @josephsavage!

·

Just wait until you see what comes next! :D

·
·

I can only imagine!

Will the pools merge once per blue moon into a megalodon or a megazord?

We expect that pool accounts will get more love when we roll out automation and start rewarding upvotes on all accounts, not just the main account.

Agreed! Lets get those script kiddies working! Do you have a team together or are you still recruiting?

We have a really great developer working on it, @holger80. We are still open to have another developer or two help him.

·

I’m excited to see what comes next.

Hello,
I am not able to understand or track the changes to my SBI shares which has increased from 2 shares a few weeks ago to 10 shares, yet, the votes from sbi3 remain at 1% - no change at all. I post on the average once per day although some days I might have two posts and other days none.

I have asked about this a few days ago, but there seems to be no change in the upvotes that I have been getting. Could you help me understand this?

Thanks!

·

Pool 3 had been pending a rebalance for some time. We completed one yesterday, so your upvotes should be in line with your share level again if they had fallen behind.

I finally have time and look into this post. I actually registered 23 days ago, but when I tried to look at the lookup I do not see my steemit username

image.png
My memo has this as verification so I know you have processed my application.

Furthermore looking at your SBD lookup tool via your link. I see "View only". As you have mentioned from your post that everything is locked up except the top side. Where is it may I ask?

I tried to click the cell here but it is also on locked up mode.
Did I do anything incorrectly?

Greetings from Daily Bread Food Bank

·

You have to make your own copy now to use the lookup.

·
·

It is for view only. How to make my own copy?

There should be a choice to 'Make a copy' if you click on the Settings icon in the upper right-hand corner.

Thank you.
