My Dream of the ultimate STEEM experience

in steemit •  last month  (edited)

Hey My J's,

I try not to blog too much about steem because everyone does it and we know its a vice many of us have, we love talking about the platform we're using good or bad news it doesn't matter.

I've been trying to keep up with all the updates which sometimes feels like a full time job and at times I just give up and return to my vanilla use of Steemit. I know the steemit site is not the greatest but it was my first point of interaction so there's a bit of nostalgia that keeps me coming back.

Now that the wallet has been moved to a new site/condenser I'm just like fuck me charlie, seriously Charlie bit my finger now he wants to bend me over, damn daniel! How many more sites do I need to use to get my steem on?

Feeling dApp-ressed at times

Is it just me that feels like I wish there was one STEEM front end that rules them all. Can we not put together the council of elrond but instead of trying to destroy one ring by casting it into the fires of mount doom, we actually forge one that becomes the ideal steem experience and a welcome mat new users can really dive into.

The council of frontends

General front ends

  • Steemit.com
  • Steem Plus
  • Busy.org
  • Esteeem app
  • Steev app
  • Steem Peak
  • Partiko

I won't even mention all the other dapps that also have communities and users contributing every day or this post would go on forever but you get the picture.

One dApp to rule them all

I can't be the only one who has this fantasy of having one site and one app and one brand with all the features we love and features we want. Lets for one second imagine it shall we? Let's take steemit since it is the most popular, the most users, the strongest brand and most widely used.

There is so much happening on steemit and so much that goes on outside steemit behind the scenes on discord or on other dapps and is missed by the wider community.

Just imagine if we brought together all the amazing features we enjoy with dapps into one unified front end we can present to the world and say this is a real rival to traditional social media.

Would you like to join my thought experiment or not sure that I mean? Well take a second to imagine logging onto steemit each day and this happens

  • Imagine having a steemit branded mobile app for iOS and Android
  • That you earn points each time you post
  • That you could earn points or rewards for referring others
  • You could have multiple draft posts
  • You could follow communities
  • Have instant messaging
  • Have group chats
  • Have community forums/boards
  • Have manual and AI curation
  • Have interest circles
  • Have automated/autofill when tagging accounts
  • Have pricing in local currency
  • Have access to bot directory
  • Have access to a community directory
  • Have bid botting and tipping/donations build in
  • Have notifications on follows, unfollows, resteems, who resteemed, upvotes, downvotes, replies, mentions, mentions of friends.
  • Have suggested and featured posts
  • Have pinned posts
  • Have favourite and bookmarked posts
  • Have access to other dapp functions like setting bounties, embedding a DTube, Polls or DSound content
  • Follow suggestions
  • Filters for active users, filter for posts that can still be rewarded
  • Mark ups on posts that have rewards or competitions so users can easily identify them in their feeds
  • An explore page split into content you follow, content your freinds interact with, content your communicites curated, content that is generally hot or trending
  • Filtering content by reputation, UA or Payout
  • Filtering content by language or region
  • Viewing curation trials or a directory for it

Don't you think it would make this place even better? I know I would appreciate it. I know its not likely and I know thats not the way it will go but perhaps some alliances can be formed. Maybe dapps can combine, maybe steemit inc ropes these guys in as a second lay to take over from them while they focus on chain stuff.

Have your say

What do you think about one front end to rule them all? Or is decentralisation the better option and I should just get used to it?

Holla at me in the comments! All my commenters I will now refer to as Jessie. Jessie is a good friend of mine, but Jessies got a girl, and I want to make her mine.

So have at it my Jessies! If you don't have something to comment, simply comment "I am a Jessie."

Lol damn son a rhyme scheme and jokes in one message you’re really outdoing yourself with the responses!

I have explored submitting some of my ideas to utopian-io for consideration but nothing happened! I am waiting now for worker proposals to be deployed on steem wallet and the Steem alliance to decide on a structure then I’m going to take it up with them and bitch and moan until I get something that resembles a Frankenstein of what I dreamed of, kinda like all of my ex gfs

LOL if only life was that simple grab some random inspirational quote, slap a stock photo from Unsplash on it and ramble about for 700 words and collect my payout! It’s a winning formula I’ve yet to perfect!

My inspirational quotes consist of life is a garden take a fat dump in it, plants love your shit but I don’t!
