[Announcement] Update for @steemhunt Upvoting Review Comments | @utopian-io Added Steemhunt to the Trail

in steemhunt •  6 months ago

Hello Hunters!

It's been a very busy weekend for us. We have one more quick update today.

1. Updates of Voting Rules on Review Comments by @steemhunt.

We've noticed that there are some abusers who keep dumping meaningless review comments on Steemhunt so that they can milk @steemhunt's upvotes.

So, we decided to update the rules to upvote review comments. To sum up, @steemhunt won't upvote meaningless review comments anymore.


These are the details of the upvoting rules for review comments (By the way, review comments are how hunters share their opinion about products under the "pros" and "cons" titles). The following four rules must be followed in order to have your review comments upvoted.

  1. Only one review comment per post per person will be counted. We discovered that some users keep duplicating the same review comments on each hunting post to get more @steemhunt upvotes. This won't be possible anymore.
  2. Minimum length of the review comment must be over 80 characters. Some people wrote short meaningless comments just to get upvotes. These comments won't be upvoted anymore.
  3. Reviewers MUST upvote the hunting post that he or she reviews by at least 50% voting weight. So, if you are a genuine reviewer who wants to share pros and cons of the product, this means that you got value from the hunter's post. Thus, it is very natural for you to upvote the hunting post. From now on, the @steemhunt bot will check whether the reviewer upvoted the hunting post by at least 50% or more voting weight.
  4. Reviewers CANNOT post on their own hunts. If you want to add your opinion about the product that you are hunting, you can simply add it in your hunter's comment field, rather than a review comment for your own post. The @steemhunt bot will also check whether the hunter and reviewer is the same account holder, and if so, it won't upvote.

This new rule is effective frome June 2, 2018.

2. Utopian Added Steemhunt to the Trail

Yesterday, @utopian-io announced its amazing new AI arrivals, and mentioned that they added Steemhunt's posts on its voting trail. You can check out the details here - https://steemit.com/utopian-io/@utopian-io/utopian-weekly-ai-arrives-on-utopian-io-bug-hunting-on-request-only-and-more-june-1st-2018.

So, Utopian's amazing AI will check all the Steemhunt's posts that are upvoted by @steemhunt, and analyse if they are related to the area of science, innovation, tech or open source, @utopian-io will upvote the post with a 5% relative voting weight.

Thanks so much Utopian.io for your great contributions on Steem Innovations. At Steemhunt we will do our best to keep up with your dedication!

This is getting better and better. I love the way you guys are progressing.
One question: How Steemhunt decided whether a comment is the review of product or just a normal comment? Do you check for first word as "Pros" ?

What if I write a sentence first and then write Pros/Cons. Will I get upvoted?

For ex:

This is a brilliant product!
Pros:

  • 1
  • 2
  • 3

Cons:

  • 1
  • 2
  • 3

Yes, THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!

Yeah thank you @utopian-io ! We love you! :D

Reviewers CANNOT post on their own hunts. If you want to add your opinion about the product that you are hunting, you can simply add it in your hunter's comment field, rather than a review comment for your own post.

Hunters are not allowed to reply back to a comment someone adds?

·

This means that you cannot review your own hunts with adding Pros: and Cons:

You can always add a general comment about your hunt/product. And also reply to other's reviews/comment.

·

You can do all that but you will not be upvoted for it by Steemhunt.

Great changes.

One thing that comes to my head right away is: It would be very nice if the UI showed how many characters are there in the comment window.

·

Yes we definitely need a proper UI for this.
We already have that issue tracker here: https://github.com/Steemhunt/web/issues/56

I'm not sure about the timeframe we can update though, because too many dev stuff is on higher priority atm. Thanks for your suggestion anyway :)

Also, it seems to me that @utopian-io is only upvoting the winning hunt. Do you mind explaining this further?

So, Utopian's amazing AI will check all the Steemhunt's posts that are upvoted by @steemhunt, and analyse if they are related to the area of science, innovation, tech or open source, @utopian-io will upvote the post with a 5% relative voting power.

But it seems to me that there are many more that would fall into these categories.

This will really make the platform a community! Thanks for the update @steemhunt!

Wait what are reviews? And how do i review i have been only using steemhunt for hunting but i want to know how reviews work
Is it just a comment? Or is there some sort of command to trigger it?

I joined the SteemHunt recently because one of my pals invited me, but I had no idea that we can win upvotes with the comments.
So, basically we have to give a solid comment with our opinion about the product or service? Ok, noted.
As for the spammy comments, you might need have people power to check on that because the people will be swarming around you in no time and some of them are not sweet lil honey bees. LOL
You project is very nice, I like shopping, new things and products, and this will be a right kind of the refreshment for me.
