As related to the goal of AskSteem you can read here to get an understanding what we are going to do…

Reminder: the best/correct answer gets 75% of the reward of this post.
Can be multiple correct answers ,but mostly what answer gets up-voted most.



Question #1: What determines SteemIt reputation and what is the end goal?

Answer #1: Your Steemit reputation is entirely determined by the amount of upvotes you receive from your peers here on the site. You will get positive reputation points for upvotes on your content and comments and get dinged negative reputation points when a user of higher reputation flags your content/comments. As for the end goal we are aiming to build up our reputation to 100 so we can help secure the STEEM network against plagurist and abusive users.



Thank you! :)

so its all depends on the content

Thanks for a nice explanation dear

Thank you for explaining so concisely! Much appreciated.

Thank you @kyle for the response.

What Determines Steemit reputation and what is the end goal?

This is quite simple and should be practiced by all.

Your contribution to the community by providing original and high value content. Consistently, generating a discussion or debate addressing issues and/or ideas to build a stronger foundation of a social community, like Steemit.

Thank you for the question and answer @mrwang.

thanks for the info

What determines your reputation? A combination of things:

  • Accuracy of voting
  • Quality of content (based on steem power-adjusted votes)

Voting accuracy means - Do the posts you upvote often become popular? The more popular they become, the more it adds to your reputation. While accurate voting can get you some reputation points, it doesn't seem to have a significant impact on your score.

It seems you can get your score up to the 35-40 range with accurate voting, but if you want to get it much higher than that, you need to produce quality content. This content can be in the form of comments or blog posts. If you get upvotes from a couple big-time whales, that will push your score up into the high 40s or low 50s. If you get flagged by a whale, it will probably bring your score way down.

In order to get into the high 50s or 60s, you'll probably need several posts to reach the trending page. By this time you will have made well over $1,000. If you produce quality content consistently for a matter of months, you could possibly reach the high 60s. The highest reputation score on steemit currently is 72.

I see the end goal as attempting to make the most robust website as possible. If reputation scores accurately represent how much value individuals bring to the platform, it allows for: Weighted votes. It helps users to sort out what is likely quality content and what is likely garbage. It also helps to decrease instances of verbal abuse, system abuse, plagiarism, etc.

This is the goal, and if the mechanism doesn't quite hit the target, it will be adjusted and the results monitored. Steemit will not devolve into the trash that is Reddit, Facebook and Twitter.

AWARD: Hello, you won this first round for best answer! The aware amount was small ,but will send it over very soon. Thanks for participating!

Awesome, thanks!

Hey guys, I haven't seen the award show up in my account yet. Have you sent it? No hurry, I just wanted to make sure nothing went wrong with the transfer.

I'm going to bundle it with the others since the amount is so small. You've won just about all the others. It will be sent shortly!

Okay, sounds great!

it was a great explanation

I learned a lot from this post. I would upvote it if it wasn't such an old post. Not sure anyone will even see my comment.

I did, and learned what I was looking for too.

And was just thinking about the conundrum of wanting to upvote the post, but not wanting to waste steem... til I found your comment, related to it, and figured a vote here might hit all the bases - lol


Hahaha, perfect and thanks.

Good read. Thanks!

Since your 'score' is 68 I take that as authoritative. As someone who has several times contemplated getting on board, only to be deterred by online scepticism, I'm beginning to be persuaded that good quality contributions really might be rewarded, and this business of reputation is a further piece in the jigsaw of how that would work. The problem is getting one's foot in the door, of course, and this I intend to do by commenting constructively before posting content needing time-consuming research. Thanks for the clear information, greatly appreciated by this tyro.

I think who determines is some sort of Wizard and the end goal, no one really knows... it's kind of a blurry mystery! ;)

Steemit reputation is determined by the number of upvotes and downvotes you get, and by amount of Steem Power that went into those upvotes and downvotes. A single vote from a whale can have dramatic effect on reputation score.

Reputation makes it easier to succeed as an author. Posts by reputable Steemians may get more visibility be taking prime positions in feeds, while those made by people with low rep scores tend to be hidden from view.

I was actually wondering the same thing. I didn't know if it was directly related to the amount of Steem power you had or other factors.

So this post was insanely helpful. I gave you an upvote.

The reputation number is only a percentage out of 100?

It is not like a level number that can go up forever?

Steem reputation is entirely depend upon upvotes and followers you get.

so if ihave 10 followers and 10 upvotes how much reputation will increase from 25

@techoverlords would be great to learn how you built up your steem rep so fast

I contribute in open source projects in utopian.io and i got upvoted from high ranking members and thats how my rep goes this fast even though i never imagined

I've just written this article concerning a flaw (as I see it) in the voting system and the solution I found. I'd be happy if you could read it and give me a feedback ;)


now i know thanks for writing!

steemit reputation = hardwork + dediction
