Also, consider leaving the comment after a few days. For one, it takes away from the author's message if the comment is upvoted too high too early and reduces discussion.

Two, the values will be more accurate the closer you get to the payout.

My 2c.

Thank you for the reply. You point is well taken.

There are MANY factors that can be difficult to ensure the accuracy of when computing profit and loss, including refunds from bots and sending bids from multiple accounts.

This message is not meant to be a P/L statements, just information on bidbot payouts.

Ok but let’s call it what it is. You’re blowing up their spot, and people’s brains are so tiny that if they see detailed info on how much was spent on upvotes, they get immediately triggered and the author’s point is diluted.

That’s fine. No problem. It’s a clever way to get people to upvote your comments. But at least make the service useful to the author as well by showing him his P/L for the upvotes. You have all that info there, might as well make it easier to understand.

THIS! This is why I have flagged your bots posts. Like I said, it's shitty to spam up an author's page, regardless of your opinions on bidbots. And he has a good point about P/L. If authors or losing money the majority of the time using bidbots, which is what you claim on another thread we were discussing, then THAT is what you should show if you want folks to stop using them.
On a side note, I only use them to promote my contest, so as to get more visibility and participation. I'm spending my own money to get the contest out there, I don't care if it's at a loss. Bidbots have been around since @randowhale in the beginning. Sucks I now have to deal with either comment thread spamming by your bot, or attempted public shaming with your report cards. Especially after being here for nearly 2 years now.

I think P/L could maybe help people understand whether the author is making money off it, then they can decide that it is for advertising rather than pure profit or vice versa?

That is a few bucks. The "advertising" blockchain is starting to take shape (page 57 of the SMT whitepaper)

i am a new person brother..please every person vote and follow me.i hope you are my good friends

Beautifully managed

Did a great job buddy

I hate to post apropos of nothing, but this post is near the top and I'm hoping a "cause bot" won't complain and can believe in the following cause:

Since the original post is about Steemit creators, I felt this would be a good place to point out @manashjyoti has been plagiarizing Andy Weir's novel "The Martian". He's already made 3 posts featuring the beginning of the novel:

I've flagged them, but I don't have any juice to make an impact. If anyone would like to flag and/or comment on one or more of the above posts. You'd be helping the community. Thanks.

Quite a risky affair. This might lead to many accounts getting pulled down. But why must botting be done? People are not tired of cheating?
