Why are you still using Steemit.com?

in steemit •  4 months ago

We all know Steemit.com is not advancing as fast as we would like and it seems clear Steemit Inc is more focused on the blockchain side of the platform than the UI, and that's fine.

There are other options available, and in time there will be even more. While I have not been thrilled by the options available, as they are better in many ways but in some ways, they add frustration until now.

Enter SteemPeak

A new front end to the Steem blockchain is available and it has years of innovation over Steemit.com. It has many of the features I want out of Steemit.com and more. It's not perfect, but it is such a huge step forward from Steemit.com at the current rate of innovation I'd say it is 5+ years ahead of Steemit.com.

No beneficiaries!

Before I get far into this, the first question most people will ask is "Does it have beneficiaries?". The answer is no. From what I hear, there will never be beneficiaries on SteemPeak.com.

What's so great about SteemPeak?

Modern UI

While not everyone will like the large format and high use of whitespace, I love it. I have suggested an option to have a smaller version of blog posts as I know this will come up for many people.

There is also a layout that is similar to Pinterest if you like that style. While it is more efficient, it's not my style and too busy. While many other features I will present can fall under modern UI, I am going to give them their own section.

Hide Resteems

One of the number one requested features for Steemit.com is the ability to hide resteems from your profile page.

This feature is built-in and can be easily toggled on or off.

Post Value

One feature that I love from SteemPlus is the ability to see who voted on a post or comment and for how much. In the past, this required a Chrome or Firefox extension, but this is standard with SteamPeak. Even better, you don't even have to open the post and you can see it directly from the profile page.

Want to know more? Click on the vote number and you can see a full list pop-up that shows all the votes and their amounts.

Scheduled Posts

This is another feature many people have been waiting for. I originally planned to create a service to offer post scheduling with additional functionality but found out it was already being worked on.

SteemPeak has post scheduling built-in!

Drafts and Templates

Similar to Busy.org, SteemPeak has drafts, but that is not all. SteemPeak also has templates you can use for frequently posted layouts for regularly posted content.

When creating a post you can opt to save it as a template to re-use in future posts.

A wallet that works!

I have numerous issues in Github on all the UI issues with the wallet page on Steemit.com. I feel this is a huge problem as the wallet is the most important page on Steemit.com for most users and it also has the most bugs. There are numerous display bugs that have plagued the wallet page for well over a year. Not only is this frustrating for new users, it is confusing and greatly reduces trust.

The wallet page on SteemPeak is fantastic.

Want to automatically filter out 0.001 spam memos? No problem!
Quickly filter incoming or outgoing transactions or even Search your wallet.

Speed

SteemPeak is fast, really fast. Go try it, nuff said.

Activities

Similar to the wallet page, there is an activity page with filters and a search ability.

Want to see the last time @dlive upvoted you? Just do a search and filter by votes. You can even go back in history by hitting load more activities as far back as you like.

How freaking awesome is that?
Did I mention it is fast?

# Notification

There are built-in notifications by checking your recent activities. I'd like to see desktop notifications like Busy.org and will suggest it next time I have a moment with them.

Comment rewards

Similar to post rewards, you can easily see who voted up your comments without even opening them.

Inline gifs

This feature is awesome, and most won't even notice they never had it. I am a huge fan of this feature.

Search

I hate having this feature so low, but this one will blow your mind. I have heard so many complaints about Steemit.com search and many people talking about making a third-party search solution. Well, SteemPeak has awesome search, built right in and it doesn't use Google!

Some work is being done on the ranking algorithm, right now it isn't perfect. The search functionality is powered by AskSteem search engine.

Grid Mode

While not my favorite view, I am told it is extremely popular with SteemPeak users. You can easily switch between this view and the default view.

Dashboard

Now this feature is freaking awesome.


You can also click the load more data button to look further back. This is built-in to the UI, and instantly accessible to all users!

Guaranteed Steemit Minimum Income

This is a clever tool to figure out how much you can expect to make on a monthly basis. While there is no way for it to be 100% accurate, it looks at your reliable incoming votes and gives you a baseline estimate based on current market price and how many posts you plan.

You can toggle and customize each vote if you think you have a better estimate of what to expect. If you want to understand GSMI better, check out the post describing it.

Bookmarks

Got a post you like? Want to save it? That's where bookmarks come in. Any post can be bookmarked for reading later or saving for reference.

Conclusion

SteemPeak is already so far ahead of Steemit.com development, and working on a shoestring budget. I'm finding it hard to justify using Steemit.com when SteemPeak is better and faster in just about every way.

Give it a try, tell them I sent you. I'd love to hear what you think about it. What you would like to see changed and what you didn't like.

Great comment to throw one of your daily comment 100% self-votes on.
Only 9 more and you are done for the day!

hahahahaha get him :P gotta love people that do that

LOL!! At least no one else agreed with him.

This is hilarious

Ok, I see what you mean, but I don’t yet understand how it works what he’s trying to do here ;-)
Still got a lot to learn about Steem!

·
·

He upvotes his comments for 100% like 8-10 times a day basically using all his stake on stupid pointless comments offering zero value.

·
·
·
·

No Fake! I just came here from another post, saw that mess up top and scrolled down. Too old to upvote but here's a 2 day old comment.
I was scrolling the slider, and it took 3x longer to change. These Steemit glitches are annoying, always different and takes forever to fix! Gonna check out STEEMPEAK.

🐕

·
·
·
·

Right :-) Not really contributies to the social part of the social Network that Steem is off course... I get it now, thanks!!! ;-)

·

I do not think it's about being an "official site" at all. It is a better alternative in many aspects. Maybe Steemit should focus a little more on improving their UI to compete with these alternatives.

I've been using Steempeak for over a month now and im quite involved in the discord community as well. Brainstorming sessions have been going well and the guys in there are very active on the development front. For me, it has the potential to really clean up what you want to see on the blockchain. It's always going to be up to a user interface to be able to filter out the shitposts and allow the users to view exactly what they want to. In my opinion, with the right focus, it has the potential not only to surpass condenser as the de-facto user interface for viewing the blockchain, but also has the potential to do more for the blockchain than any other application can.

This site is wonderful, and I have @mattclarke to thank for introducing me to it.

I was using Steemit.com until today, and now there's no turning back from Steempeak.com. Whoever did the work to create this site would get a huge man hug with plenty of hearty pats on the back from me if I saw them in person!

Your post about the features and improvements of Steempeak is excellent too. Thank you!!!

·

That @mattclarke is a good guy!!

·
·

Aw schucks guys :)

·
·
·

You're only pointing out the truth and should be commended for it. I've changed my introduction information for new users to include Steempeak too.

Sounds interesting. I will try it. Resteemed.

I still use steemit but with a combo of steemworld.org..

Steempeak looks worth trying....

can you link to the page where wallet bugs are listed...I have never really come across any issues with Wallet page so interested to learn what can be the potential issue with it.

·
·
·

Now that I read the descriptions , I think I have seen every one of these except 2967 & 2968

·
·
·

They have been around since over a year, in my opinion, the wallet is the most important page for most users and also requires the most trust. These issues do not create trust.

·
·
·
·

agreed...being a financial project and all..

I've been using SP for over a month now. A few features you didn't mention:

  1. you can type the name of a user directly in the search bar
    image.png
  2. you can save 'users' (different from following)
  3. you can save 'topics' (different from bookmarking)
  4. bookmarks can be tagged
  5. There is a new version about to be released, so this feature list is only going to expand and require even more updating lol

I've been on Steemit for 14 days and already experienced half of the challenges you mentioned in this post. It seems like Steampeak would be great. However, I have no idea how to use another front end. Can anyone recommend a post that talks about how to use multiple front ends? I'd like to try it out.

·

All you have to do is log in to the other one and stop using the other one or not stop. You are free to use any front end that you choose.

·
·

Okay for us simpleton's you are going to have to example it out....I've tried twice, one I got a 404 message and another that this site isn't available.

·
·
·

You can log in to Steemit.com and be logged into SteemPeak.com at the same time.

·
·
·
·

How do you get to Steem Peak from Steemit?

·
·
·
·
·

You don't. You use SteemPeak.com

·
·
·

Be sure you go to "steempeak.com" not "steampeak.com", the second one is a domain that's for sale.

I figured out what I needed to log in. You use your same username (sunlit7), but use your "Active private key" or "owner private key" as your password.

If you are logged in to "steemit.com" with the owner key, you can see your other keys on your "wallet" page under the "permissions" tab, you have to click on the button to show private key. When you first signed up the owner key is what you were given but you might have thought of it as the password for steemit. You can use it as a password, but it's the owner key.

This year old post from @drakos helped me start to get it, maybe it will help you. https://steemit.com/steemit/@drakos/steem-private-and-public-keys-demystified

this is absolutely brilliant. thanks for sharing man. had no idea this even existed but now i can’t stop looking at the dashboard and all the extra features.

personally i use steemit because it’s clean and easy to navigate. but steempeak is pretty sweet. i can see this becoming more of my front end for desktop interactions

Dashboard hasn't been updated since day 1 ... just think it can and will be EVEN BETTER!! haha

·

Hey, I just noticed the tokens expire for added accounts. Is there a way to not have to re-enter keys once a week?

·
·
·

Hello igster :). There is a white screen again in steemgar. Can you fix it?

·
·
·

Thank you very much, igster :))

Hello igster :). There is a white screen again in steemgar. Can you fix it?

You sold it to me. The UI, the stats, awesome. And no charge, that is a major plus, one of the reasons many people use steemit.com is because there are no charges

I actually put together a brief steempeak video a few weeks back. Here it is if anyone wants to take a tour of the best website known to man.

Hope you're OK with a linkdrop. Thought it might help for those who like videos more than reading: https://steempeak.com/steem/@littlescribe/your-steem-fantasies-have-finally-come-true

upvoted for visibility

Done! I love the fact that I can switch users so easily. No signing out or using different browsers. Not to mention the dashboard! Now who doesn't love a pie chart or two. :D

Nice, we definitely need more Steem UI to compete with Steemit.com

Agree... Steem peak is quite ninja already, and let's not forget it's the new kid in town

Posted using Partiko Android

What about security? Is all the code available for review? Can you trust with your private keys?

·

Keys are not handed to the site. It uses steemconnect so it has no access to your keys.

·
·

The folks behind Steemit built Steemconnect right? It says it's a Steemit + Busy project.

·
·
·

It was originally developed by Busy.org to integrate Busy.org w/ Steem safely, then taken over by Steemit.

·
·

That's indeed a very important feature!

Nice one. I like Steempeak, I believe you were the one who told me about it originally. Also, I like partiko for mobile post viewing / up-voting. I don't comment with it though as it leaves spam inside the comments.

·

There is no way to turn that off? It's maddening seeing that on all the comments.

·
·

I haven't found a way. I hope they do have a way eventually though, as it makes the chain fatter for no real reason other than promotion, and we can promote them with posts and videos. So i don't see a reason for it to be in non related comments if that makes any sense.

·
·
·

Upvoted to get rid of those friggin stoopid comments posted from my iphone barf

·
·
·
·

Nyahahahha...

·
·
·
·

Partying like it’s 1999 Hotmail all over.

checked it out really quick because of your post and I really liked it! I think I'm gonna mess around on it for a few days but it definitely is leaps and bounds ahead of steemit.com so thanks for telling me about it :0)

Sincerely on Android Chrome I don't see any great advantage comparing to Steemit

I'm guilty.... i've checked it out a time or two but i don't guess i like change..... i have been posting from busy.org for that vote from them once a day ;)

·

One day we'll find that feature that pulls you over ;) mahahaha

Interesting....verrrrrry interesting...I look forward to a tutorial...@flawy comes to mind for creating some of the best work on the platform.

Best regards.

Peace.

Looks interesting, will have to check it out!

Very nice @themarkymark! I also made a review on steempeak a while ago, it surely has so many benefits! I personally like the "side by side layout" when writing post so you can instantly see how it looks when you make the post. also used the scheduled post, it works wonderfully! cheers man:)

·

Always fun to know which services people are liking the most.

·
·

hah! Yeah, It is all in the details sometimes:) Something that just makes life a little easier!

Well you got me intrested! I'm going to give it a test drive and see how I like it.

What a great review and so detail!!! :)
Thanks for sharing information!!!

Start following you now. :)

Thanks for sharing about the key features that are most important to you. I have heard people speak about SteemPeak over last few weeks, but your post is convincing me to give it a try.

Hah. I'll just copypaste a comment I left elsewhere a few minutes ago:

Because it still pays me something.

Although I've found a platform that rewards me more and I've been focusing more on that one. Also, I'm holding on to some naive hope that maybe a new whale comes along and notices me and adds me on his autovote list.

So I'll post here and there.

Also, beneficiaries is one of the few good and worthwhile features here.

·

Actually, SteemPeak is just a front end on the Steem blockchain. You don't lose any of that.

·
·

I know. But then again, I only use the site steemit.com for vomiting my content on the chain in hopes to whore myself for a few bucks, so the UI doesn't really matter much.

This is really looking like a huge step forward for Steem-kind ;-) Thanks for pointing this out, @themarkymark! I especially like the little extra's like "hide resteems" because they mess up the visuals on the feed, which is important for many users.

Also the wallet page is a huge leap forward, and after trying it out for a few minutes I can already tell it works smoothly. Now if I could just find the "power down" button... Not that I'm planning to power down, but I just miss some buttons on the wallet page. Can you tell us where they hid them?

Love the clean layout to; I'll stick with steempeak for the time being and if I encounter no nasty bugs, I've found my new front-end!

Thanks so much!

·

HUZZAH!!

I have not heard about the steempeak before and it sounds really good, so thank you for sharing it with us.
I will definitely check it out.

Nice condenser, I will try it out.

But a feature that I would like is separation between resteem and real post. Like there should be a way to search for my old posts without getting pissed off by resteems.

·

There is and I mention it in the review.

I must admit (with a little shame showing on my face ;-) ) that I didn’t really knew there were alternatives... But I want to learn (a lot) more about steem, and started looking around. And in one of the posts I came across, I saw a reference to Steempeak, and a link to your (this) post. Thanks for sharing this wonderful piece of information, as it seems really promising! So I’m off now, going to check out Steempeak!

·
·
·

That worked ;-) Now getting to now the thing a bit better... But that’ll Work too!

Previously I've been too lazy(? not sure if that's exactly the word I'm looking for) to try out alternatives to steemit.com . There are a lot of issues with the site but none of the alternatives really stood out to me and I figured the issues I have with Steemit were minor enough to just say fuck it.

This looks so fucking awesome though. Really. Everything about it. Usually I kind of just brush past these sorts of posts but Steem Peak looks great! Definitely going to try it out. Thanks man :)

Nice article. I also like steempeak. It is my favorite front end. I've just gotten used to steemit now, so I forget to use it.

·

^

That's what we're like as consumers. That's why the libertarian argument of the rational consumer often falls flat on its face.

I worked in the industry for years, and I saw tons of people, on a daily basis, being frustrated with their mobile phone and internet service providers, listing dozens of issues, but continuing to pour money into the companies simply because they were so used to being their customer.

·
·

Stares blankly at my AT&T phone... grumbles a little and acknowledges you are right and I am lazy.

·
·
·

Haha. I know, right. Being human is hard and frustrating at times.

I will try steempeak. It definitely seems to be way ahead of steemit.com

That's a very convenient front-end for Steemit, I'll give it a go for my next post. Thanks for sharing! 😃

·

Technically it's a front-end for "Steem". haha

I like it, very sleek. More options the better I'd say

·

Agreed, I think we need to reduce our dependency on Steemit.com as issues are not being resolved at the speed they need to and it has no innovation. If focus is on the blockchain only that might help speed up its development.

Sounds very good! So much Features 👌 I will try and give a feedback 👍😀

Nice, I hadn't heard of this. Will check it out. Can you change the currency in the wallet? or is it USD values only?

·

Coming. We will do that in combination with another features we'll do which is
"Real Rewards" aka show people what they are actually going to be getting or got.

We'll likely allow them to choose USD/EUR/STEEM in their settings to start.

·
·

Fantastic! Cheers

·

Not sure on that.

·
·

No worries :0)

Thanks for the notice about this site. I had not heard about it before and was impressed after signing in. I will make this my new default location. I had been using busy.org but for some reason lately it takes several sign in attempts before I am successful or I will be able to sign in successfully but then a few seconds later it will kick me out and I have to sign in again.

Hi Mark. Truth is I am bloody useless at this and want to move to something better suited. I will try over the weekend to see if I can get it set up. Everything new takes me time and I will get there.

I love Steempeak - and the grid view. It gives me a quick and easy overview of new posts using a tag I'm interested in.

thanks, wasn't aware of this. but your frustrations with steemit described mine so well. trying out the steampeak frontend now.

Hi dear thanks for nice info but you know I personally thought that steemit has also some issues like spammy posts and there is lack of quality in content alongside, that's why along with financial prospects quality of content also lacks here, and let me check steempeak than for sure I ll respond you. Anyways thanks for new idea.

Cheers,

@syedaamir

I've taken a quick test drive and like it, especially for the ability to exclude resteems. I also like being able to save users and save topics and get at them quickly. Maybe you can do this on Steemit??? Is there a way to list all the channels you follow and maybe their last post date? Still looking at the rest of the things you mentioned. Thx.

·

Glad you like that feature... hope it saves you some time!

I'm fairly happy with a combination of Steemit and Steem Plus. I'm used to the limitations. I use eSteem too. The notifications are good, but they need more filters to control those. I've heard about Steempeak, but I need to look into it more. It's good that we have a selection of options. The competition should drive innovation. I wonder if they will all take a cut of rewards

·

Well hope you do look into it and you like it.
And no ... we do not take a cut of the rewards.

·
·

I'll have a look. How are you going to cover your costs?

·

Trying out Steempeak currently, I'd say give it a few days worth of testing. It feels fast, looks modern and has ton of advanced features over steemit.com.

I use it on desktop a lot, but it doesn’t format properly on my phone.

Posted using Partiko iOS

·

Will work on it keep in touch on our discord. Recently we've been focused on cool features but we can get some basic formatting changes in there.

·
·

Are you planning mobile apps, or just different CSS for mobile screen sizes?

Wow, I have been using Busy and I like it a lot. But after reading this review, I'm certainly curious enough to try SteemPeak!

Great article, many thanks! 😃

Well, the main reason I'm still using Steemit.com is because that's the site I signed up with. I wouldn't want to enter my private key into a site I'm not familiar with. Could end up being phished. I don't even know which one is the valid link for SteemPeak since it doesn't look like it's mentioned in this article.

There are others as well, and I got lucky with busy.org that I didn't get phished losing my account. There's just too many ways to get screwed (DNS poisoning, etc) if you have sizable holdings on the Steem blockchain, so I err on the side of caution.

·

Neither busy.org or steempeak.com or any other site that uses SteemConnect has access to your private keys. Nor are they ever sent over the Internet.

thank you! excellent write up. trying it out now!

i've tried searching for it- but where can we find the guaranteed minimum income? i

·

https://steempeak.com/me/tools

We will work on automating it even more however if you want the true GSMI you'll likely want to remove bots and paid votes from the equation since they're unlikely to be "gauranteed" statistically

·
·

thank you @jarvie - i am using steempeak now and don't think i'll switch back to steemit and i will be telling everyone about this. it's awesome! good work!

Why didn't you toggle the NSFW? Because this thread is simply porn. 6UQOmE2.png Damn! Does it require keys to login @themarkymark?

·

No keys, you authenticate via SteemConnect (which requires your active key to give them permission to enable their access on your account) but they never receive any keys and keys are never sent over the wire.

SteemConnect is one of the most secure ways to enable third-party services and I believe is now owned by Steemit Inc but previously owned by Busy.

Technically there will never be "Forced Beneficiaries" we love the concept of optional user decided beneficiaries of a post.

No charge? Sounds awesome, but how does @steempeak plan to sustain itself? Outside funding? Rely on donations? I believe @esteem takes 10%

Its amazing 😍!!!

Thank you for letting us know it exists.

Thanks for the outline @themarkymark I was not sure if it was legit. I guess that is why i liked Busy.org so much but Steempeak is defiantly light years ahead. With that said you still have to use steemconnect to log on so Steemit.com will always be the parent. Right?

·

Not sure what you mean by parent but SteemConnect is maintained by SteemIt Inc and acts as an authentication gateway between the blockchain and third party apps.

·
·

hey @themarkymark, my lingo is limited in regards to this crypto thing. The 'authentication gateway" is the wording I was looking for to ask you the prior question. Would be nice not have anything to do with Steemit, Inc., my opinion.
One way to look at me asking you questions is the fact that you have knowledge and expertise in this subject. My expertise is in other subjects. For me, I am the owner of a car and I just want to drive it and not work on it. Hows that. This was supposed to be a marketing arm and or a propaganda tool for me. It really has not panned out that way. I guess I will just keep trying.
Thanks, keep up the good work. I am on here once a day and about this time since I have a full load of other things to do. Being back in PA and manning my antique store. Looking for another way to market my goods.

Roberto

Never heard of it. Seems cool. Will definitely try.

Everything is awesome about Steempeak!

Except for one thing. I cannot flag unless I set my default voting value to a negative value.

Other than that, it is my go to for browsing contents and upvoting.

·

Flagging is being added

·
·

Soon.

It looks like I will have to try it out judging on your posts. Steemit is great but has many flaws and some of which are glaringly obvious. Steempeak seems to have addressed a lot of these and if they are putting that much development into the userface then it might fix the rest soon enough. I've been using steemworld.com for stats but the Steempeak page looks brilliant to have it built into the site itself.

Recently I have also taken to using partiko which is an app that similarly has a few gaps up to now but is a huge improvement on any existing app that I have seen to date. It also doesn't have any benificiarys which is good.

These are what we have been looking for and it seems like all the development that has been going into the users side of the blockchain is landing at the same time. This bodes well for the future especially if the devs are getting the same results behind the scenes.

Posted using Partiko Android

It looks good, I've not used steemit side I discovered busy, I might try to dip my toes into steempeak, I like that it has a night mode and I don't have to use any outside tools to get a night mode going on like in busy.

Steempeak looks fantastic! I'm still used to the features available on Minds, which unfortunately are frequently lacking on Steemit, but Steempeak appears to cover all of those and then some! I'll definitely give it a shot when I've got a good chunk of time to sit down and see all it can do!

How is the search system any good if it uses AskSteem, which shows only posts that are at least a few months old?

Also, I searched for "business" and got:
image.png

·

That's a sorting issue, the Ask Steem integration I believe is only temporary until they have their own search.

·

AskSteem is powerful but it's not great at SORTING and showing the info we implimented it just as a stop gap. The real power in search is not in FINDING stuff (which asksteem does well) it's in the decisions that put certain results before another.

That we have not worked on yet. That's some algorithm type stuff right there. haha
However maybe for the time being we can just default to NEWEST perhaps.

I just switched on the merit of this post - thankyou. Can someone tell me how to centre though? I usually use

, but that's not working on Steempeak! Help! @markymark

·

<center>Hello</center>

·

Thanks for that yeah that's what I use but it's not working for some reason. It worked on one post but not the other especially when I went to centre my banners. Thanks for getting back to me anyway maybe it's just a glitch

They got me because of peakmonsters. I might try them out. I moved to busy and am loving it, only head back to steemit occasionally. Lets check out another frontend.

I love the details! This is awsome! Easier for people like me who have a fulltime job and want to make some lil cash/cryto here on steemit by sharing my blogs and showcasing my talent. I wish I knew this one earlier! Stay strong steempeak! Lastly I love the stat where I can keep things in track and show to my friends that steemit can be a legit way to earn. CRYPTO IS THE FUTURE!

Something very new attractive..worth using it...will try it once get my lappy back

I continue to read about it more and more as they have also recently deployed a @steemmonsters gateway with @peakmonsters. Do they take any rewards from using the platform and is the log in as secure as the Steemit site?

·

No beneficiaries to use it.
It uses SteemConnect, like Busy.org.

·
·

Thanks! Missed that first part on beneficiaries. Really like this then. Will try it out for sure!

Exciting! Thanks for sharing!

Finally made the switch thanks to this post and I must say it's looking and feeling really good - already decided to make this my main front end.

Feature you forgot to mention is switching between accounts, for people who have many due to development work or for those who want to keep accounts with different focuses, it makes life a lot easier.

Everyone still using steemit.com should give steempeak a try

·

Probably one of my personal favorites

·
·

Can verify ;)

I use busy.org while I'm on mobile (which is most of the time ) and then steemit while on the laptop. I'll check it out though thanks for the info.

looking good. Scheduled post the most important thing for me!

but why would anyone hide their resteems? dont get it

One of the number one requested features for Steemit.com is the ability to hide resteems from your profile page.

·

When you resteem, you are sharing a post from someone else on your profile so others will find it. But when you view your own profile, you want to see your posts and don't want other posts cluttering that.

·
·

thanks for the explanation.

#steempeak looking good so far.

as a German i am still looking for a page displaying everything in my mothertongue. is this easy to implement this for #steempeak?

·
·
·

I get that you are referring to a translation of the UI...but as a suggestion @felix.herrmann you could save the topic #deutsch. For users and topics, you'll see a 'star', which, when clicked, adds the user or topic to your list of 'saved topics' or 'saved users'.

Thx for the suggestion. I am fine with the english Interface. I just wann to sell it netter to other Germans.

bye the way, an instant account checker would be great, so you dont have to wait for @checky if you spelled @themarkmark wrong.

·
·
·
·

(which you did) :)

·

on purpose ;)

@jarvie here with my personal opinion thanks for the tag @themarkymark

I believe we WILL do translated sites... the time is not yet and here's why...


The idea is that if we translate too early in our development process we'll have to translate with every single feature that comes out again and again into 5-10 languages.

However if we get to a point where we have most of our roadmap is done and have the manpower to handle it we will.

It's not translators we lack it's the backend solution to handling the various translations AND the extra developer burden to inputting all the english into that system with each update and then calling to action all the translators. which slows down how fast we can release a new feature.

So my challenge is if there is someone out there who could handle organizing the translation process for each update we'll jump in. But I think it's probably best to wait until the bulk of our features are done first.

·

if you come to steemfest, we might have chat if not:

-> Der Markt regelt. / lets hope for the invisible hand of the market.

To be fair, my view is that creating UI and UX is outsource-able, especially when it comes to super public projects, like, you know, a blockchain. Working on the "backend", especially if it's a blockchain, needs the kind of talent that is way harder to find.

This alternative sounds amazing, too, will try!

I really like the idea of scheduled posts. And to not have my searches redirect to Google would be a game-changer! 😁

Hi @themarkymark! We are @steem-ua, a new Steem dApp, using UserAuthority for algorithmic post curation! Your post is eligible for our upvote! Thanks for your contribution, keep up the good work, and feel free to join our Discord server!

Why don't you like esteem?

I tried it on mobile a while ago, it's been a while.

·
·

eSteem Surfer is desktop app, give it a try ;) We are working on improving eSteem Mobile with upcoming release, as well. Good detailed review on SteemPeak...

·
·
·

At the time (when I was a young steemian) I looked at the desktop app but seems like it was taken down or not updated so I never ended up trying it. I did try the mobile version though.

·
·
·
·

Oh right, initial version was just ported from eSteem Mobile but eSteem Surfer is new product with new code. There is something special in works for Surfer, we hope to share with community within month or two.

·
·
·
·
·

is there like a demo video of eSTEEM desktop where can i do a quick preview without downloading?

·
·
·
·
·

We had some Surfer Tips posts here, bottom of this page has more tips linked in: https://steemit.com/esteem/@esteemapp/edit-history-or-surfer-tips-13-ec1e63e53d4e2est

Thanks Mayn..

·
·

Try it again it's actually not bad

·

I tried it a while back ..was very clunky...

·
·

We are working on new release of eSteem Mobile, stay tuned!

·
·
·

aight..I am open to trying it out again..

·
·

It's not perfect but I like it, I'm using it every day...

Steempeak looks like it has some great features. I Steemconnected and like what I see. Honestly at this point thought I mainly only use platforms that have delegated power and then hope for an upvote. That is the harsh reality of being a Steemian with only 5300 followers and a low reputation.

·

Wouldn't call (68) a low reputation

·
·

Hahha, I'm glad you got the joke. Because of the nature of everything on here these days it is like being back to square one. I might as well have 5 followers and a 28 reputation.

Since i have your attention. I'm curious about the @alpha account. I'm sort of confused as to why it is earning from @buildawhale ? Is that a Steemit INC owned account or is that an account owned by @ned or someone?

·

Yep that is certainly a reality ... one we'd be alright with Steemit INC solving. haha
I have a unique and powerful way we could do automated upvotes to our users that would be pretty fancy Steem Tech.

However we do see that many users that have the same thoughts as you tend to use https://steempeak.com for everything they do including templates / drafts / looking at posts.

And then when it comes time to post do so on the platform that gives them money. haha
I mean our goal is retention and being the place you send all your friends. So i think that's acceptable. We're all on the same blockchain we just want people to stick with it and not be overburdened by having to go to 10 sites to get all the features they want. And so far the feature of free big votes is not on our ability list. haha

·
·

Yeah, it would be amazing if the best features were accumulated on a couple of platforms. I could see something like SteemPeak really doing well if it had the ability to also upload and live stream video. It is obviously cost prohibitive and hopefully Steemit INC will delegate power to it to help fund development!

Thank you for this post about Steempeak we didn't know about. It looks like it's a much better interface than Steemit.

Drafts and templates and inline gifs....oh my!
I have no idea why I'm still using Steemit.com.
All these different front ends tend to confuse the Isaria, but I'll give this a shot.
Also, thank you......
<3

·

Oh you're gonna love it!!
And if you don't... message me and tell me what to fix. haha

·
·

Love it! I just need to be able to drill down on the "tags" in the "new" category.. thanks looks wonderful ;9)

I love steempeak. I would love to see a partnership with the @steem-ua project to create a new type of feed that doesn't only work based on post rewards.

·

I would like to see more testing of Steem-UA before we start integrating it into everything. It has a heavy witness influence on the data set due to the bootstrapping.

I'm waiting to get my hands on the API for it, so I can do some testing myself. In my opinion, more features (data points) are required to create a real Rep replacement. Although I will say anything is better than the current system.

·
·

That's a fair point. Ideally, it would be a partnership to discover what data point best predict high quality feeds...which could include in part upvotes, UA score, account history, etc.

·
·
·

More data points are needed.

I believe it will get better and it is a hell of a lot better than our useless reputation system, but let's take time to test it and tune it before it becomes the de facto ranking system.

·

would love to see a good debate about it's benefits and drawbacks of UA (like the one you're having with @themarkymark)
And what it could mean for a site like @steempeak using it.

Also where do you envision it's implementations on https://steempeak.com
@patrickulrich was also asking today as well so he may have some input here

IF IF i understand @steem-ua Then...

  • For example there could be a settings option to use UA instead of reputation next to user.
  • Also sort comments by... UA could be an option.
  • And of course it could replace reputation.
  • Any other implementations?

However our philosophy is to let the user decide so we would likely make it a settings switch.
Would this be a good solution?

And finally @steem-ua or @cryptoctopus is there anyone on that team who could:

  1. Estimate for us how time consuming this would be to do
  2. OR would like access to impliment it on our code. Hopefully someone you trust @cryptoctopus

I'd have to ask the developers but we can see if that's an option. Then it's even more probable.
Maybe we could have a sunset clause on it saying we'll use it for X months and if it's still heavily used we'll keep it in the settings. Perhaps this is an acceptable possibility ... also what do you think @themarkymark?

So much “yes” in this...I looked at it just the other day and now I’m definitely going to give it a try. Thanks for detailing the goodies in SP.

Holy crap, that looks awesome!!

Woah.. intense.

So many features..

Resteeming it and gonna check it out.

I have yet to try this one out.. Miss @dreemsteem had somehow asked me to try this out. But somehow the idea slipped through my mind and forgot about it.

Having to read this now, it got me interested. I mean i cant wait to use it with all you have just said. Its like that all i needed is staring right infront of me.

I just hoped i had stalked you a little earlier! Sorry a bad habit! Haha..

Thanks a lot @themarkymark, really needed one.

I have now removed my steemit.com shortcut and added steempeak thanks to you! I have been hearing about steempeak for a few days now. It will be fun exploring this front end. I love how you can comment on a post without having to keep reloading the page. I just don't understand why the feed is given the heading of 'Recommended for you'. Still, if that's my only point of confusion then I'll gladly enjoy living 5 years into the future with steempeak and all the development that it has that Steemit.com lacks.

It seems the grid veiw option or rather the 'pinterest' look is not available on android mobile.

Looks good, I’ll try it out.

My guess, though the steem price impacts more than the UX

On SteemPeak right now, my goodness, this is sick!

I do wish it had multiple theme options, unless I'm missing something, tho

·

never mind: Found Night Mode in settings ^^

I am still using steemit.com because it is simple and I like simplicity. Also, I am lazy and used to it. This being said, several of the features you mentioned (actually one or two) are interesting so that I will potentially give steempeak a try, maybe later this week. Thanks for the review!

This is awesome! I've been playing around with the interface and it's the best I've used. I love the layout and the expanded options it gives Streemians. The only thing that it lacks for me so far is that I have to be able to drill down on a "tag" and see the "new" post in that "tag". I'm sure they can add that feature or they might already have and I haven't found it yet. Wonderful interface and great post explaining it. I'm glad I spent the time to read it. Thankyou @themarkymark. ;9)

As a newbie here i use steemit.com but definitely i would like to try my hands on steempeak of these days to know the difference. This is an interesting article though.
