SteemitBoard - Witness Update

in steemitboard •  9 months ago  (edited)

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 and to have fun.

For those who don’t know the why SteemitBoard team runs a witness, we highly recommend to read the introduction post. This one is full of information.

Work done

Witness infrastructure

All our nodes (the witness nodes and the other nodes @steemitboard uses for its daily work) have been upgraded to the latest version (including the numerous intermediate upgrades we had to do).

The Resource Credit system introduced with the HF20 made @steemitboard struggle with its notification. Fortunately, we have received massive support from the community and from Steemit Inc. which allowed us to continue to provide our service as before.

Thank you to our generous delegators: @misterdelegation, @roelandp, @mcfarhat, @loshombresdepaco, @tarazkp, @creativetruth, @ana-maria, @sergiomendes, @jeenger, @flauwy, @argalf, @steemchurch, @sirknight, @daily.johny, @kriptonik, @flemingfarm, @michealb, @mariannewest, @thebigsweed, @fako, @jossduarte.

Last month, we moved our infrastructure to new more powerful servers to provide a better user experience and to be ready for the next growth of Steem.

We created the SteemitBoard Ranking

Few month ago, we introduced the SteemitBoard Ranking which allow you to compare yourself to your fellow Stemians.

This tool is the true replacement for SteemWhales and allows you to know how you perform on the Steem blockchain based on Steem's key metrics.

It is available at
Do not forget to bookmark it!

We improved SteemitBoard notifications

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.

We improved our notifications to provides you with a more detailed description of the milestones you have reached and what you must now accomplish to take the next step.

We created a special contest for SteemFest³

Steemfest was absolutely amazing and the Meet the Steemians Contest we organized to encourage participants to meet helped a lot in this success.

Thanks to our awesome sponsors (@ausbitbank, @blocktrades, @reggaemuffin, @cervantes, @lukestokes, @roelandp, @teamsteem) we collected 2333 STEEM for this contest.

There were a total of 2065 officially registered mutual meetings and we distributed the prize pool among all 234 contestants.

We created several new personal badges and challenges

Trick or Treat Halloween challenge
The badge has been awarded to 53 users who published their scary story about Halloween and got at least 10 upvotes.

Steemfest³ badge
On top of the above mentioned contest created for SteemFest³, we created a special commemorative award for all 273 participants who registered in Kraków.

Meet the Stemians Contest badge
On top of the prize distributed to each contest’s participant, they also received this commemorative badge.

CleanPlanet community badge
While being at SteemFest³, we wanted to support the @cleanplanet project initiative. Therfore, we created a dedicated community badge to reward people who clean our planet.

Saint Nicholas’ day challenge
This year again, Saint Nicholas fulfilled 109 good girls and boys wishes, bringing them a special gifts and adding a nice badge on their board.

Christmas Challenge
The Christmas Challenge has been a HUGE success. The badge has been offered to 832 steemians by their best friend. A “cool” initiative where people shared their love and wishes, but broke all Steem blockchain clients by making the original post “unloadable” because of so many kind comments on it.

Interaction with users


@steemitboard sends a lot of notifications to inform users of their progress on Steemit.
Here a small chart to display the work done every month, depending on the activity of Steem users on the blockchain:

Notifications are really appreciated and you sent us a lot of positive feedback. Many of you love being informed about their progress on Steemand 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 authors

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

Here's a chart with the number of votes made every day. You will notice that SteemitBoard has upvoted 541181 posts , with up to 42933 posts per month and is now on a lower average of approximately 20000 posts upvoted per month.

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

SteemitBoard is grateful when you support it

Although I rarely say thank you, I upvote each notification vrom @steemitboard. You do great work especially for those of us who don't really keep track of our own stats. So, a very big THANK YOU for everything that you and the team do.

Thank you so much @fionasfavourites, makes warm at heart to the whole team.

I rarely say thank you

Makes your comment event more appreciated!

Now I feel awful. I should have said it better. My vote is gratitude. I should say it more often. Now I shall 😁

Thank you for your kind comment @argalf.

Congratulations! Your post has been selected as a daily Steemit truffle! It is listed on rank 22 of all contributions awarded today. You can find the TOP DAILY TRUFFLE PICKS HERE.

I upvoted your contribution because to my mind your post is at least 10 SBD worth and should receive 191 votes. It's now up to the lovely Steemit community to make this come true.

Thank you @steemitboard!! I appreciate your continued support and encouragement. I just voted for you!! :-)

Thank you for all you do!!

Thank you =)

Do we only get the badge if we vote for you and not through proxy? I am sure my Proxy vote person votes for you. But nice update.

Unfortunately yes, this works only for direct witness votes and not through proxy.

It is a good service worth supporting.

For the stack of ideas:

What about a personal badge for the steemians who own one of the physical steemit silver ounces and proofed their ownership via a short post including coin & certificate?
