Since May 2017, SteemitBoard sends notifications to inform users of their progress on Steemit.
Up to now, SteemitBoard has sent 462818 notifications, with the number of notifications sent everyday which is now steady more than 3000 notifications per day. Indeed, the notification process has been updated in order to manage the impressive growth in the number of active users encountered last times. The notifications are grouped together and this avoids receiving several notifications from @steemitboard on the same post, especially for newcomers.
Here a small chart to display this evolution
If SteemitBoard is able to send so many notifications per day, 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.
Thanks for all those who keep upvoting the notifications they receive.
Support from SteemitBoard to other users
Remember @steemitboard upvotes user’s post each time 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, its voting power was depleting very quickly. Moreover, the change to linear reward deplete very quickly voting power.
Here are the current voting rules used by @steemitboard:
|Action type||VP %||Description|
|“first” award||1||VP is low to avoid giving too much on new users that come and go|
|generated by user||0||Set to zero to avoid abuse by accounts generating a lot of informations with low value|
|generated by other (upvotes and comments)||2||This is the reward when others users appreciate your work|
|Special awards (Top xxx, Daily Author, Weekly Author, ...)||5||Voting 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 up to 2260 posts per day and is now on a lower average of approximately 1062 posts upvoted per day.
Actually, @SteemitBoard is not powerful enough to have a big effect on payout of the posts. Anyway, its upvotes already help to raise the active user’s reputation.
SteemitBoard is grateful when you support it
