SteemitBoard - Witness Update

in steemitboard •  4 months ago

Welcome to SteemitBoard’s witness report


Like all other witnesses, @steemitboard publish a regular report on its activity and how it helps the Steemit platform and its users to grow.

For those who don’t know why SteemitBoard is a witness, it is highly recommended to read the introduction post.

Work done

  • several new personal badges have been created
Carnival award. This badge contest was to reward users who published a post about their Carnival experience. Only 3 participants managed to meet all contest’s conditions. Therefore, this badge is a very rare one.
Steem Meetup Auvergne commemorative award. This award has been been distributed to the 30 attendees of the first French speaking community meetup in Clermont-Ferrand.
Saint Patrick’s day. To celebrate Saint Patrick’s day, @steemitboard has prepared a new badge which 15 users succeeded to add to their board.
2 years on Steemit award. This is an award for every user being registered on Steemit for two years. Up to now, 1802 users have already received their award. Congratulations to them!
Easter campain. This was a week-long campaign created by @steemitboard to celebrate Easter, replacing the usual level character with a new Easter related funny character. Everyone had the opportunity to ask to keep it forever. 520 users took the opportunity to add it on their board.
Verified Profile award. This is a collaborative project between @steemcleaners and @steemitboard. This badge confirms that users who requested a profile check have successfully completed the verification.

Steemitboard interaction with users

Since May 2017, SteemitBoard sends notifications to inform users of their progress on Steemit.

So far, SteemitBoard has sent 849583 notifications. At the beginning of March, notifications had to be suspended for a short time due to network bandwidth issues. But since then, everything is functional again and the number of notifications sent everyday is steady around 2500 notifications per day.

Here a small chart to display this evolution

If SteemitBoard is able to send so many notifications, this is thanks to your support. Each time you vote on the notification, you increase SteemitBoard’s power and bandwidth, allowing it to notify users of their achievements more quickly.

Here an evolution of the support received on notifications

Notifications are really appreciated and users have sent a lot of positive feedback. Many of you love being informed about their progress on Steemit by @steemitboard and only 4% have asked to stop receiving notifications.

A big THANK YOU to all of you who keep upvoting notifications they receive.

Support from SteemitBoard to users

Remember @steemitboard also upvotes user’s post when it send a notification.

At the very beginning, the upvote strength was 10% for every notification. But as there was more and more notifications sent, @steemitboard voting power was depleting too quickly and the vote strength had to be reduced to allow @steemitboard to continue upvoting a maximum number of user posts.

Here are the current voting rules used by @steemitboard:

Action typeVP %Description
“first” award1VP is low to avoid giving too much on new users that come and go
generated by user0Set to zero to avoid abuse by accounts generating a lot of informations with low value
generated by other (upvotes and comments)2This is the reward when others users appreciate your work
Special awards (Top xxx, Daily Author, Weekly Author, ...)5Voting Power is high to reward committed users

Here a graph showing how the voting power has been distributed to users

And here's a chart with the number of votes made every day. You will notice that SteemitBoard has upvoted 396808 posts, with up to 2656 posts upvoted per day and is now on a lower average of approximately 1136 posts upvotes per day.

We have seen several users complain that @steemitboard's upvotes did not have a big effect on their payment. Yes, @steemitboard is not powerful enough yet.

Anyway, his upvotes are already helping to boost the reputation of the active user.

SteemitBoard is grateful when you support it

As you have read above, the impact of @steemitboard votes is still low. That's why we're asking you to support this project by voting the notifications you receive or voting for @steemitboard as a witness.

This support is highly appreciated and each user with an active vote for @steemitboard as a witness is rewarded with a dedicated award which is displayed on his/her personal page on SteemitBoard.

SteemitBoard is supported by 2371 users. A special thank you to all of them!
