RE: The Guiding Mission, Vision and Values of Steemit, Inc.

in #steemit4 years ago (edited)

As critical as I can be at times, I am glad and thankful we are moving in a positive direction.

I know a lot of folks got a little nervous due to the HF 21 "freedom" fiasco and there was a lot of confusion. It actually brought something to mind that I think you should consider regarding account recovery.

So, there was a note about disabling account recovery on the pull request. I figure now they probably mean on the Steemit Inc accounts but the implication could mean @steem would not be able to perform account recovery on the countless accounts that have been created by Steemit Inc.

For a technical user, nothing a script couldn't solve by changing the recovery account but to a lay user this could be a BIG deal if they lose their keys or account is stolen.

I have been thinking of the possibility of creating a client side app that can allow the non-technical user to change their account recovery and would love to hear your thoughts.

Maybe Steemit.com can cook up an interface much more readily than someone like me who is admittedly weak on the web side of the house.

Another topic I would like to talk about is abuse of course, I have reached out to you on multiple occasions about the @steemflagrewards project and how we may be able to earn your support eventually.

We have a vibrant community of abuse fighters and we fight for greater potential of proof of brain daily. I am thankful for organizations like @steemcleaners that address the lion's share of abuse on this platform but the primary issue I have is the limited scope.

In an analogous sense, the scope is like having a police force that can go after small time thugs but leave the organized crime alone. If we really want to build confidence in this platform and support proof-of-brain, I propose the net be widened.

We have made significant strides in the effort but could always do more. Our bot simply cannot reward the volume of good flags that community members send.

Sorry for going on somewhat of a tangent but hope you will give us consideration. Not to get religious but I am reminded of the parable of the talents.

I would suggest asking @steemchiller to add this to Steemworld. He's incredibly fast and willing to add stuff.

The possibility to be able to change the recovery account is already on my list for the next update ;) A feature for requesting and starting the recovery process via SteemWorld will also be added in the coming weeks.

Not a bad idea. I really really really want to learn how to do that client side stuff eventually. There is so much power to unlock.

Thanks, @tcpolymatch.

We must address the issue of purely-ideologically driven, massive, and automated downvoting campaigns by people triggered simply because they disagree, politically, with others.

We need a "proof of mind" step for every downvoting attempt that would require checking a "reason for downvoting" set of options/boxes. When "politics/ideology" is checked, the downvote process should abort. That should also then be followed by an authentication step to fully weed out automated downvotes...i.e. "check all the boxes with street signs."

If we continue to permit certain whales to crush minnows they disagree with (AND WITH WHOM THEY'VE NEVER EVEN HAD A DIALGOUE) then Steemit will remain a very questionable platform for new investment.

I couldn't agree more, this one issue in and of itself is a minor fix compared to the other problems talked about on the platform but is one of the biggest problems holding the platform back. Yes they must be able to deal with abuse but there has to be a better way then allowing the use of flags as a censorship tool.

I don't mind the use of flags for plagiarism, spam, porn, etc.... Right. But to censor political speech...? No way. That makes us Facebook, Jr.

Kudos for putting that in it's proper perspective.

This is something I am very concerned about since my accounts were created with @steem.
