Supporting Promotion With Free Upvotes :)

in #steemit6 months ago
Hi guys, small update regarding @tipU voting system. From now on @tipU will automatically upvote posts that were promoted using promotion tool. More info below :)

So the steempeak promotion tool is an awesome feature that will help you gain visibility and followers without need to buy votes. The promoted posts look like this:

Now, I think that something like this should be build into since day 1 - it's a great alternative to buying votes and it gives STEEM another use case. Why it's not implemented - I don't know, but I'm happy that did it.

The cool think is that when you are paying for promotion, around 80% of your payment is burned and 20 % is taken by steempeak to support further development. You can also see a small "leaderboard" that gives you an idea how often your post will be featured in the promoted spot and how much you need to pay to be #1.

And finally to the conclusion: to make this feature more appealing, @tipU will automatically upvote every post that uses this feature. The upvote value depends on the payment but basically every STEEM spend will result in 0.3 STEEM upvote value (so something like a 30% cashback).

If you have any questions regarding the promotion feature or in general, be sure to check out their discord channel.

Cheers and see you next time!


I haven't been on steem in a few months. seems down. What is the alternative now to check my balances?

Website is up :)

Hey @cardboard,
Just checking up: previous vote did not go through. Please have a look.

Also, could you actually only issue half the vote?

Ho @hatu, having server problems right now but I can't access the service. I can send back the funds though if you want.

Ok, vote done :)

@tipu i am trying to login steempeak its going on Error.why?

cool feature!

By the way, have you thought about extending the time window in which curators have to be active? I have a holiday coming up and I don't know if I'll be able to curate in the 1 week window.

Yeah, will do that :)

I like it! :)

Hi was wondering how one became a curator for tipu?
At the beginning it was bring a friend along so therefore naturally you bring along people who have interest in you and visa versa to vote each others post.
Your votes seems to be going to the same people now it could be that these people are amongst the greatest writers which is possible or could be seen as a tug each other off group.
I hold tipu tokens and have done for a long time. I am not saying I deserve a vote and not asking for one. Was just wondering about the criteria for getting recognised that's all. Once again not looking for a vote and if you go through my past few posts defo don't deserve one as they are shit I will be the first to say that but they are on level par with some of the shit your curators curate.
Would it not be an idea to have people hold your token and the top 20 50 whatever become the curators? Just an idea

Hi there, thanks for the feedback.
If you find some of the posts [email protected]!# - please let me know on @tipu discord, will check it out.

I was thinking about using the TPUs as a entry gate for being a curator but might lead to lot of abuse so for now the idea is on hold.

Ultimately I try to review the curations as often as I can and many curators were already removed. Any help with the reviewing process would be very welcome so plz pm me on discord ;)

That's fair enough. I also understand using tokens as a gateway can lead to manipulation also so it is a bit of a situation you find yourself in and I don't expect you to be able to monitor every action taken. Using tokens though would mean people are more committed to the platform overall in my opinion but thats just me. Will leave it in your capable hands to come up with some better solution.
Thank you for response 👍

Хорошая идея. Извинените,что пишу по Русски.
Но моя мысль,лучше курировать,чем в ковото вкладывать.

@cardboard Dam Ci radę bo widzę co się święci nie pierwszy post widziałem:/


Przejrzyj kuratorów, bo zamiast kurować, to dymają.

Przegladam ale w tym komentarzu nie widze nic podejrzanego?

Chodzi o to, że ludzie zakupują steem po to, żeby kupić głos i podbijać na stronie. To nie pierwsze takie dyskusje, które widziałem. Co do kuratorki jedni znakomicie kurują, inni rżną głupa. Za łatwo przychodzi kurującym, a nie kurowanemu.

Dodam od siebie, że Filmiki biorą podwójne, lody za free a solidne treści obrywają. Żeby to jeszcze były w miarę merytoryczne filmy czy jakieś o hobby. To jeszcze by się skusiło obejrzeć, ale nie takie coś jak jest przedstawiane obecnie. Bądźmy poważni, ten Steem i Blockchain nie podziała zbyt długo, dopóki ludzie nie zaczną poważnie go traktować.

@tipu oferowal sprzedaz glosow na dlugo przez wprowadzeniem systemu kuracji. Glosy nie sa zyskowne (glos daje mniejszy profit niz wplacona suma) a 50% wplaty juz uzywane jako wsparcie dla steemowych projektow.

This is cool, glad you supporting this. Far more functional than the "promoted" tab on steemit, which is useless. Cool that they show you how much you would need to promote to be #1, I suggested that feature a while ago for when they first came out with a similar promotion.

@cardboard I have a question RE @tipu, I just called a vote and it hasn't come for a while - I noticed the VP on @tipu account has dipped below 80%, by any chance is tipu curation paused when/if @tipu goes below 80%? And assuming that is the case, do votes called while tipu is below the threshold just get ignored or will they end up coming through once VP has recovered? Cheers

EDIT my vote did finally come through but I am still curious as to the question I asked above, if it was just a random delay with my vote or if it was because of low VP. Thanks

The server was paused for about an hour, server problems :) should be all good now. Sometimes @tipu can go to sleep but then it will leave a comment with "recovering voting power" so those calls will be ignored.

OK cool, thanks for the reply :) cheers
