What is the meaning of flag in Steemit

in steemit •  last year 
Hailing is an approach to indicate dissatisfaction for a post. Banners are intended to be utilized on posts a client does not endorse of. The reason can be that the post is spam.


Basically, it is the inverse of up-voting a post. At the point when a post gets an up-vote, the essayist picks up rewards relative to the quality of the up-vote (in view of the Steem Power (SP)

Banners or down-votes are the correct inverse. While they can't remove cash from a man, they can contrarily affect the anticipated add up to be earned from a post, decrease the creator's notoriety, or conceal the post from perceivability.

banners was intended to be utilized to demonstrate objection individuals to a great extent saw how Steemit functions, what a blockchain is, the thing that Steem is, presents were flagellated on guarantee that the main quality unique substance wound up on the stage and to pass on their abhorrence for a few kinds of substance. Regularly it was to revise somebody's mix-up - like utilizing the wrong tag, for instance, or to guarantee duplicate/glue content was not remunerated.

At present, finished a year later, Steemit is loaded with clients who just realize that they will get paid for blogging. While they're attempting to figure out how to utilize Steemit and about the Steem blockchain, it's a difficult task. When they see up-votes on their post they just observe the incentive close to the dollar sign. They don't understand that as of now, the estimation of the post is chosen inside a traverse of 7 days, not quickly. At the point when that esteem diminishes or the post is concealed on account of a banner, they turn out to be exceptionally vexed. Frequently they don't comprehend what happened or on the off chance that they did anything incorrectly. They take each banner like an individual assault on their wallets.

Hailing was dependably intended to be utilized as a curation highlight and not as a weapon. Bots that banner do as such in light of the fact that their proprietors can't help contradicting the way a blog is overseen (ie. the blog just posts content stolen from different clients) or the substance of a post. These bots work either off a rundown or another calculation that enables them to computerize their activities. There is as of now no known individual or bot who circumvents tossing irregular banners indiscriminately. Indeed, even con artists who strike back for banners against them do as such to secure their notoriety.

Banners are intended to be a path for a man to demonstrate that they object to certain substance on the Steem blockchain as well as need to keep the individual who posted it from getting rewards for posting it. It just turns into a type of manhandle when a client malevolently signals all posts from a record independent of what they are, especially when that individual is a whale and damages a record since they can.

That being stated, if a minnow gets into a contention with a whale, and they signal each other forward and backward, it isn't mishandle when the minnow loses. The two gatherings wound up engaged with the contention voluntarily and one lost.

Banner Severity

Banners can be issued at 100% of a client's Voting Power (VP) or at a littler rate. The effect of the banner is subject to the banner's quality (level of down-vote + guarantor's SP + backer's notoriety esteem).

Banners by high-SP/high-notoriety accounts have a far more prominent effect than banners by a fresh out of the plastic new record. Banners by a shiny new record against a client who has a high notoriety and a ton of SP have a minor effect.

Since hailing costs VP, distinctive clients utilize diverse seriousness banners for various reasons. For instance, a client may utilize a 1% banner to tell a minnow that they're spamming a tag by wrongly using it. A 1% banner can likewise be emblematically tossed between two whales to indicate dissatisfaction. Or then again they may utilize a 100% to conceal a post on Steemit with noxious connections in it.

Evacuating Flags

The client who issued a banner (or a down-vote) can evacuate it if the post/remark. Nobody else can expel the banner.

To evacuate a banner on Steemit, basically go to the post and tap the little warning on the best once more. It will turn out to be clear.

A banner might be evacuated on the grounds that the issue has since been settled, the individual altered their opinion, or for some other reason the banner backer saw fit.

Recouping from Flags

There are various approaches to recoup from hailing.

Address the purpose behind the banner

On the off chance that your post was hailed on the grounds that you posted a cluster of stolen photographs, quit posting stolen photographs. Take a day to consider what you can do to post things individuals will need to see rather or figure out how to appropriately refer to material that isn't yours.

Resteem for some time

On the off chance that you got into a major banner war with somebody you can quit posting your own material and rather discover posts that you like and resteem them. When you resteem you help minister; which means you get a bit of the prizes that post will get giving you have upvoted it. Upvoting content without resteeming fills in too.

Talk it out with the individual who hailed you

Numerous clients are dynamic either on Steemit.chat or on Discord. On the off chance that you make sense of how to contact them you can have a dialog with them. The aftereffect of this might be that they expel their banner from your post since you'll either have an opportunity to clarify what you implied by what you composed or you will go to a shared assention.

Would i be able to signal somebody I can't help contradicting?

Indeed. You needn't bother with anybody's consent to hail.

Would i be able to signal somebody who posted something that insults me?

Truly, yet it might be smarter to simply 'quiet' them.

Does Steemit administration signal?

Steemit administration are people and issue hails as they see fit in the interest of themselves.

It is safe to say that he is permitted to signal me?


He stole my cash by hailing me.

No he didn't. Your "cash" or payout is chosen over seven days (7 days). It relies upon positive votes, negative votes, and the present assessment of the token you are being paid in. The token isn't cash until purchased/sold and you are not qualified for anything until the point that those 7 days are up.

Why was my post/remark covered up?

Since somebody hailed it.

Where do I whine about a banner I got?

No place. You manage it yourself. Other kindred clients will help you if it's malevolent and foundational with no noble motivation.

Who helps individuals who were malevolently hailed?

Other kindred clients. They can be found in the Steemit.chat 'steemitabuse' room. They are not required to enable you and just to do as such out of their through and through freedom.

Does hailing erase my post?

No. Nothing can expel your post from the Steem blockchain. It is there for the span of the blockchain's presence.

Would i be able to signal a whale?

Truly. You can hail anybody.

Are signals by individuals who oppress me due to my identity permitted?

Indeed. Steemit has a wide range of clients, some who detest or object to others in view of race, religion, sexual orientation, and so forth. They are permitted to utilize their up-votes and down-votes. In the meantime, they are a minority and different clients who welcome everybody similarly may help and "invert" the effect of they down-vote with their up-votes.

On the off chance that I signal somebody will they hail back?

That relies upon every person. There is no chance to get of knowing how a man will respond to being hailed.

What is a banner war?

A banner war is when clients signal each other's posts unpredictably of the substance since they need to hurt each other. A banner war ought to be settled by the included gatherings or it will go ahead until the point when somebody becomes weary of it and quits hailing their rival, leaves the stage,

How might I stop somebody who more than once hails me?

You can't control someone else.

On the off chance that I don't concur with something how substantial of a banner would it be a good idea for me to give?

You should utilize your own judgment and choose the amount VP you need to spend and the amount of an effect you need your banner to have. On the off chance that you need to disclose to them that you gently disdain their post since they copied, you can issue a 1% down-vote like a few bots do. On the off chance that you discover a post that you need to help escape see (ie. it's a phishing post), you can issue a 100% down-vote.

Try not to signal substance since you differ or don't care for it

This is a major issue and I'm certain a few people will differ with it yet I think most of the group concurs that the banner issue is for posts which are unsafe or harsh and ought not be utilized as an abhorrence or downvote catch. Try not to like something? Post a remark clarifying why or on the off chance that you can't be tried to do that or don't have room schedule-wise proceed onward

Because you tail it however, does not mean every other person will. Each individual gets the opportunity to choose how to utilize their upvotes and downvotes. There are no "tenets".

By and by, I endeavor to treat everybody how I need to be dealt with
