Notifications from SteemitBoard have been improved
@Steemitboard is stimulation engine for newcomers. We received a lot of positive feedback from those who told us how notifications about the badges they receive was a motivator. They feel encouraged to continue their activity on the platform.
However, we also received feedback about the fact that these notifications were sometimes a bit too generic and did not clearly indicate milestones and next steps to reach.
A quick reminder - There are several types of notifications
1. First step notifications
These notifications are issued when the user performs for the first time an operation on the blockchain (upvote, post, comment) or receive something for the first time (upvote, reply, payout)
2. Personal notifications
Personal notifications are issued when you receive a particular badge (event of your life on steemit) or a community badge. These badges are displayed in the "personal" tab of your board on steemitboard.com?
3. Level notifications
Level notifications are issued when your level change, whether because you grew up or unfortunately when it decreases.
They are explained in details in this post.
4. Achievements notifications
Achievement notifications are issued each time you reach an important milestone. These relate to the operations you performed on the blockchain (upvote, post, how) or performed by others or by the system and where you are involved (upvote, reply , payout)
These are the notifications that have been improved.
Previously, @steemitboard sent you a rather generic notification about your achievement, and to have more information, you had to to click on the badge to go to your board on [steemitboard.com] (https://steemitboard.com)
Now, @steemitboard provides you with a detailed description of the milestones you have reached and what you must now accomplish to take the next step.
The further you go, the more difficult it becomes.
Beginners will receive more notifications than Steemit’s veterans. This is because the levels of achievement required to get a new award are lower at the beginning. Step by step, it becomes a little more difficult to reach the next level and time between notifications should increase.
This has been set up to incentive newcomers and to avoid spamming regular authors with non-stop notifications.
If you don’t want to receive these notifications, it is easy: just reply to any notification with the word “STOP” (and nothing more). @steemitboard will not send you notifications anymore.
Thanks for reading and have fun!
