Welcome to ShadowBot Version 1.1 (Erebus)

As a member of ShadowBot you are now a Shadow Caster and enjoy all the great benefits of being part of our community! By joining ShadowBot you become part of our Shadow Pool, a group of Steemians who work together to promote good content, and grow together!

What is new?

  • NSFW Toggle
  • Updated Voting Power Management
  • Notifications
  • Auto Resteem
  • Limit up votes per Shadow Caster to 15 per week (option)

NSFW Toggle

Not Safe For Work or NSFW is a tag used to indicate a post may not be appropriate for all to view. You now have the ability to decide if you want to allow your account to upvote posts marked as NSFW. By default @ShadowBot does NOT up vote NSFW posts on your behalf. You may access this toggle inside the Settings tab of your account!

Updated Voting Power Management

ShadowBot now utilizes all Voting Power in the Shadow Pool. Voting occurs for all accounts every 5 hours OR when Voting Power reaches 100%, whichever occurs first. Approx. 2% Voting Power is used during each voting session, allowing for adequate time to recharge.


You will begin to see over the coming weeks/months more and more notifications generated by ShadowBot. You will have a full history of all notifications generated inside your account at all times! These will help you see insight into the more "inner workings" of ShadowBot and maximize your experience on Steemit!

Auto Resteem

You have the ability to set a threshold for automatically resteeming posts generated by Shadow Caster's that are above your desired Shadow Rank threshold. By default it is NOT on. If you would like to try out this new feature try starting with setting your threshold to 100% which ensures only the highest quality content is ever resteemed. Feel free to play around with the different levels until you find what works best for you!

Limit up votes per Shadow Caster to 15 per week

By enabling this option your account will only allocate 15 up votes every 7 days to any one particular Steemit Author ("Shadow Caster"). This option gives you more control over preventing spam and abuse and will go farther in the next release we are planning! Remember this is PER Shadow Caster NOT the total up votes you will be providing to the Shadow Pool!

Thanks again everyone hope you enjoy this new release! If you have any questions/comments please feel free to share them!

[Updated to correct new defaults for resteem feature]


Resteeming 3 times in my blog was like Spam.

Please remove me from this group.

Nice you have reason you can change it going out of shadow changing your principal password or setting your menu on shadow here. https://shadowbot.us/shadowbot/ , I changed my password

So is

Woohoo party! Erebus show us the way! Thanks for all the hard work and great tools!

This looks quite interesting. Im going to read a bit more about it in the faq.. but looks quite good!! Keep up the good work!


great post .... Thanks for all the hard work and great tools! upvoted

Thanks! We have more to do but we are on track! The core is solid now and we are confident as we grow we will identify the proper path we all collectively agree works best! Thanks again for being part of this!

So as an initial sceptic of @shadowbot I've been enjoying the past (7?) days of membership. I still haven't the foggiest what the graphs are telling me but it looks like there are some definite benefits to being a member. \o/

The graph is your Steem Power over time. Going Up is good =D

Mine seems to be permanently full, clearly I'm 'All Powerful'? I must find a small planet to rule. :-D

The dark side of the moon seems close enough for now to begin to conquer perhaps?

I'm invading Mars before you pesky humans get there and mess it all up for everyone. :-D

Just bring ShadowBot along! Computers are friends <3 Matrix and Terminator taught me this!

Damn! I posted the wrong link, it should have been the Evil Overlord list

Dropped my resteem to 80% we need to set the barrier to something achievable for sections of our little community imo. High achievers don't need help. :-)

We are working on the balance and ratio/algorithm. This is a BRAND new feature and the more input/feedback we get the more we can fine tune it! Thanks for being with us it is amazing to see how we are growing this all together!

Don't worry, I'll be the first to let you know when you're Doing it wrong. ^5 :-)

hahaha Just remember ShadowBot is Skynet! lol

Thank you for all the effort and time!

Thanks for being part of this growing project! Everyone's input is greatly appreciated and helps us guide this ship into the ultimate port we are all aiming to land in!

Thank you, I've registered and am trying to get use to the system still.

Thanks for joining. Take a look through the FAQ and previous posts here we have they will help with both ShadowBot and Steemit. If you have any questions or input do not hesitate!

Thank you very much

can you please delete me from @shadowbot.. I can't find where to delete my account. resteeming 3 posts in a row in our blogs it is not so nice!! thanks in advance!!

I am going to sign up right now. I have been coming across a lot of helpful content for curating and authoring post. I have great ideas that I want to blog about to network with other steemians. @cleverbot do you know about shadowbot

That you are clever.

Glad to have you aboard! Please do let us know any input you have both good and bad! We are here to serve the steemit community and need everyone's feedback to further expand what we have here! Thanks again!

How do you disable it if you no longer want to use it?

Simply change your keys. You can do that inside your wallet.

I dont see anywhere to change my keys in my wallet. This is all i see.
I like the app, its just for future reference so i know.

In wallet go to Password and reset your master password it will reset your account. I can also remove you manually if you like.

Nope, i was actually just curious, thanks for the assistance.

Glad to have you around! We just never want to make someone feel like we are hodling them hostage! Everyone is free to leave anytime they want! But while you are here feel free to let us know what we can do to make things better!

Can you please remove my account from shadowbot, I want to upvote stuff myself.

We removed you. Sorry to see you go! You should still change your keys for full security!

Feel free to add me on your list of authors to upvote!

Just have to join shadowbot!

I Joined today! wish i joined earlier so this post got more exposure! https://steemit.com/homesteading/@palmerjm1/life-on-the-farm-or-3

The shadowbot is really nice project. But can you add an option to not vote for your own post?

Glad you brought this up we are adding that in our minor updates this week! It was realized that it needs to be included! Thanks for being part of this please keep bringing up everything like this! IT is how we are learning what to build and grow this project into! Learning and earning together as we like to say!

thanks for that. I mentioned that sometime ago but maybe you just didn't see that.
anyway thats a great project and I hope it will help us to get more and more STEEM POWER.

We did see it and you are one of the primary reasons we are adding it! We only have so much time and there were some serious core updates we needed to make to make a stable roll out today! We have a laundry list of things still and will never be done! Keep the ideas coming trust me they do not fall on deaf ears!

thats nice to hear. im happy to suport such a nice thing.

Thank you for being part of this great effort! It is because of people like you that we are able to create and guide this ship to where we all need it to be and become! We greatly appreciate you being part and all the input you and others like you have contributed and continue to along the way!

its awsome!!!!!!!!!!!!!thanks for shereing

Ok, this was a bit too much and too intrusive... I never resteem anything from anyone, keeping my wall strictly for my own works. It was quite an unpleasant surprise to turn the PC on and seeing 2 completely unrelated posts there.
How can I sign off from your "service"?

You can turn off re-steeming in settings. If you want to leave you can always change your private posting keys.

There's no other way to simply sign off from your bot?
How do I change it?

We can remove you but it is advised if you want to leave to revoke your keys as well

Ok, can you remove me now and tell me when it's done?

Np! sorry to see you go! Do be sure when you get a chance to change your keys it is just better for everyone to have that peace of mind! Thanks for at least giving us a chance!

Can't confirm this but I have read simply going to your wallet and changing your master password will reset all your keys. Hope that helps again thanks for joining us for the time you did!

Thanks for update

How do you stop the resteems??

Simply go to settings and set to Off

Thanks, is there a way to stop shadowbot? Just in case?

The simplest and most secure way is to change your Private Posting key.

Congratulations ! Good post !

Is there a way to not resteem anything?

Yes under settings simply set the drop down to "Off"

You guys are rad. Thanks for the help.

Im part of Shadowbot for 2 Weeks now , doubled my steam power since then with so less activity :) Thx for inviting me to this during the chat session :)

Also watch your reputation rank increase. One of the hidden secrets of Steemit that we aim to boost for eachother as well! Thanks for being part of this!

Esta comunidad crece cada dia mas

tu es beneficio! mi espanol excusa eso petito! beneficio mas! asombroso comunidad gratis gente como tu!

Welcome!! A really great version

@shadowbot i just signed up and im unable to log in using my credentials. I know im not fucking up. let me know. Have a great one!

Are you logging in using the private key you signed up with as well as your steemit username? It appears to be working properly

Yes i am. Ok seems like i logged in now. Cant have caps in my username. That was the issue

Yes it is case sensitive. Glad to have you on board! Let us know your feedback!

Well to start things off. The resteem should be disabled by default. As soon as i started using the system i resteemed 70000 different things. And thats a nono in my book. Beyond that. atm i cannot give you more feedback but i will! -Cheers

Very good.
I like your post

Please visit to my blog.

Estas haciendo Reestemit de mas @shadowbot vamos con calma hermano! Gracias

Tenes que desactivarlo en el sector "Resteem" ponerlo en off

wow @chuckyfucky muchas gracias por el dato pero podrías completarme la informacion por donde ubico este botón para configurarse ?

Cuando entras en la pagina vas a "Resteem" Y ahi fijate que hay un %. va de 10% a 100% y despues tenes "off". setealo en off. Porque la verdad que es mucho spam!

I'm a few days into using @shadowbot and I just don't really see what I'm getting out of it besides a lot of burned voting power. Most of the articles my votes are being used are are not very good quality and right now I get about one return upvote for every 30 given. Am I totally missing something here?

Posts are weighted in the system first by shadow rank then by expiration date. As your Shadow Rank increases you will get priority in the pool and earn more. Our next release will allow members to flag internally posts in the pool to identify who is abusing and who is not.

Well I'll keep at it and hopefully my rank will begin to increase soon.

It is a balancing act we are ever working on. Every release we get better at the juggling act of vote allocation to all fairly. The #1 way to get your rank up is to power up your SP currently it holds the majority weight in deciding how much rank your posts get. Second biggest is number of posts per week. Posting more than 15 posts a week will instantly begin to look at your account more as potentially someone spamming or abusing both ShadowBot and Steemit.

Any feedback you provide is greatly appreciated and helps us fine tune this as we learn and earn together! Thanks for being part of this!

My biggest request right now would be someway to set a minimum voting power requirement for voting or change the voting frequency. Almost my entire days worth of recharge ends up going into shadowbot atm and I'd like a way to give myself a little more wiggle room in that regard.

Noted. We are working on balancing that as well. Our original system had over 80% of members never voting which led us to the current voting system in place today.

Very nice work

we are glad you brought this minor updates, We agree that it needs to be included! Thanks @shadowbot for being part of this please keep bringing up everything like this! IT is how we are learning what to build and grow this project into! Learning and earning together as we like to say! good for steemit.com community.
