1500 real followers? Maybe, but I'm happy enoughsteemCreated with Sketch.

I've not visited Dead Followers in a while. You can check if your followers are actually active. I think that's actually a pretty good retention rate.

Dead Followers

Another cool one checks who muted you. I'm not that bothered, but it's only a few anyway.

What matters are the real users who make real comments and honestly curate posts. I'm not into buying or selling votes. I know it's tough for new users to make anything, but I can say that I reward good comments. As my sig warns I will flag those that look like spam to me. I'll also consider voting up and resteeming good posts I see. I don't expect any reward for that as it's what we should all do. Just be sure your own posts don't get lost in a flood of resteems.

It's up to us to make Steemit a nice place to be. That means not supporting spam. If you have enough SP then consider flagging it. If you don't want to do that then you can delegate some SP to those who will. Together we can beat it. When it's not profitable then people will move on.

Steem on!

Even if I make pennies, it's more than everywhere else. On other ad dependent platforms you have to post a couple posts to collect at least 1 cent so here it's a good situation. I just have to keep doing my thing and not compare myself to others

Exactly. There is potential to make good money here, but it can take some work unless you have the right connections. I've made far more than on any other site and the great community makes to run too

Hello @steevc
I think flagging a spammer just like that is somehow cruel, majority are newbies and haven't understood what Steemit means, I advice warning first Ave tried it once and the steemian took correction, apologized and explain why, I had no option that to give him a minnowbooster vote on his last post and it all ended happily. :-)

·

I do give warnings/tips, but you can see that some are persistent spammers. I told a couple of people they were misusing the introduction tag. They accepted they were wrong

Alright.. :-D

I've found that trying to explain helps a LOT, I even gained a follower that flagged me one time!
He said that he apparently misunderstood what I posted, I said thanks for letting me 'splain and
we exchanged upvotes and follows after it was all said and done :D

I just had a look at mine i'm about 50/50 that really is a useful tool for understanding ones audience.

I think the tool should allow to check true followers who were active in the last week. One month is a long time. My result:

One more thing. I wanted to ask you about your opinion on adding a downvote button in place of flag: https://steemit.com/utopian-io/@littleboy/remove-the-flag-button-and-add-a-downvote-button

Please express your views in the comments.

I was scared to try it...

Hey, not bad!

Sounds like a good check from time to time.
In simple, old man talk, how do you do the check?
thanks.

Not sure what you are asking. Just enter your user name there. I've not done it in months before yesterday

Thanks, there is a lot of dead people out there.
Is there any way/ point in removing those deadens?

You can't remove followers. I guess the site could filter them out. It's just a number

Thanks Papa.

Although it looks you have a bunch of dead followers, you still have a lot who are not dead. Now, this service (http://www.steemspectacles.com/) also shows Ghost followers, these are followers that did not interact on your posts, or voted for your post in the last month or so. I think dead followers may belong to ghost as well looking at my own stats. Anyway, maybe a useful tool for you as well to just check what is going on at the moment.

Upvoting comments: Yep

Flagging spam: Yep, but I dont regard a thank you comment as spam, I generally dont upvote it though. But annoying spam comments are flagged by me, or at least it gets a comment from me asking why this and that, or whatever I find appropriate to tell this user.

The image with the Flowerish skeleton head makes all the fun. Half of mines are dead already, we need heaven to resurrect them :))

Well, you gained a new follower who is active almost everyday ;)

Thanks for the info!

Congratulations Brotha!
