- Help and Feedback

in steemd •  4 months ago


To be updated as questions come in.

1. What happened to the robots?!

The service (robohash) which provides them was causing pages to load far too slowly. We've switched back to using "identicons" for now; they are generated in-browser and don't require any extra network requests.

2. Why don't transactions show right away?

The current account history API as provided by steemd only provides transactions which are considered 'irreversible'. It usually takes 2-3 minutes for a transaction to be "fully confirmed", at which point it will show up.

3. Why does my account history sometimes show old operations until I refresh?

This is due to a steemd API bug, documented here: Issue 3052.

I want my robot back...

Is it possible to have filters for basic operations, posts, transfers etc ?




Filters will be added as soon as possible, but the backend API currently doesn't support it. In the meantime, @jesta's site does make some filters available:


Thanks @roadscape, steemdb seems to have/had some broken functions so I sopped using it a little while ago. What I did like there (although could be improved and they often don't work) are the graphs to track account activity. I like the idea of being able to see progress of growth visually.

Keep up the good work, the more tools the better :)

I grieve for my blue robot. 😅


the link is:

The robots! Did anyone mentioned the robots?

I miss the robot avatars. The new patterns are confusing and don't stand out. 😢

Hey, @roadscape
I have some feedback for you! It would be pretty cool if we could click on the "and xyz others" in the list of voters on steemd to expand the comma separated list to the full size with all voters.

This is the part needing that change imo

This should be clickable to expand the list to show all the voters in a compact list ;)
Thanks for your work

Hi @roadscape, I'm working on a report for Steem ecosystem. Can I get the number of account created on Steem blockchain by 2019/12/31 11:59 EST from you? Looking forward to reply. Thanks!

Is there any plans to go open source ?


Yes, but they're on the backburner for now. What would you consider the main benefits?


For me it would mainly be the educational value, I often wondered how you display various things on the website like number of rcs, price of each operation, vests to steem etc,

It's not specifically some of those infos but when you need some technical infos you go on steemd and sometimes I wonder which calls you do to get x or y data.

So yeah I would be interested just for the educational value.

I liked the old avatars. Why did you change it?

The robots relied on external web site that was slowing down too much.


if you really want to save yours:


Thank you so much!

Hi @roadscape, Steemd is a great resource so thank you for all the hard work that's gone into it.

  1. A feature I think that is desperately needed is some sort of search function as scrolling through each block to find the specific action/transaction that you're looking for can take hours.
  2. My second request is related to the first one. If a search function is not feasible, is there some way where jumping to the "next" or "previous" block could be displayed at the top of the page and not the bottom. As it is now, I believe we need to scroll to the bottom of the page in order to skip to the next block.

    Thanks :)

A basic search function is planned. Are you actually looking through blocks or account history? I've added a Prev/Next nav on the block view.

It was better to have the pages all displayed imo, easier to jump to the pages when we need to find certain past posting.

It did take much space and it can show a lot (hundreds) of pages for older accounts and very active accounts, but again, it was easier go to a certain page when I needed to find my past posting

I hope am making sense? lol



Some accounts have so much history that the paginator was a few MB of data.


Guilty. I'm one of those accounts, sorry 😁


Use the url bar to put in the page you are looking for?


Aah true! Am slow hahaha



Where can I find my original post before modified?

@smartmarket I forgot the Url in the memo 4d05ef52,
please refund.

Not sure how others feel, but I think a dark mode could be a neat addition to the site in the future!

Can't view posts anymore. Get an error on all of them. just leads to:

An error occured. Try refreshing the page, or leave a comment on the help thread .

The change in the symbol that represents plankton, minnows e. t. c looks a bit confusing to me. Lol. Other than that, the services from is really nice.

And you implemented the new Rcs /Manna on the website so fast after HF20.

Thanks for the selfless service you offer through the website.


i actually like those new avatars hahhaa


Lol. OK.


They remind me blogger, blogspot, and wordpress era 🤣


OK :)

Hey @roadscape - I wondered if the figure circled below is always live? Is there a formula which says how this figure is generated and what it represents. I've done some maths and I can't get the same answer - so any information you have would be gratefully received. Thanks



Why doesn't clicking on a transaction id send me to the transaction page anymore but to the block it comes from with the transaction highlighted ? Feels counter-intuitive, especially since the time indicator on transactions already serves that purpose.

Thanks for by the way, currently one of the best Steem related websites !


I disabled this feature while the transaction lookup service was down. Now it's back up but currently can't perform lookups on transaction hashes older than 3 weeks. So it's safer to link to it within a block (always available). This will be fixed within a week or two, and at that point I'll re-enable direct tx links.

Thank you so much for your service! Please fix the typo benefator reward...

Fantastic explorer! There's a small typo:


Keep up the great work!

Can you please add the current Steem blockchain size (block_log) on Would be interesting to see this information alongside the other properties on the front page of
