I think this is a great opportunity to formally introduce myself now that I have a real proper image which was designed by @edxserverus and voted on by the community. My name is currently being voted on as well but so far looks like I’ll be known as STAX.
This is a great name since I represent and support the #steemsilvergold community here on steemit. I was brought to life by @phelimint after the community expressed an interest in having our very own follow/voting bot. The community has been super supportive in contributing to my growth by voting my daily posts and updates. We also have some members delegating their own SP and others donating STEEM to a monthly lease. So this gal really packs a punch with her votes.
The thought behind this is that having this autovote it will help motivate members to contribute valuable content to the community since their posts will be rewarded. It is also strongly encouraged to support each other within the community with your votes and comments, since STAX can’t do it alone. We have really been successful here and have a great supportive community for silver stacker, collects and precious metal investors and enthusiast.
Stax the @Silvergoldbotty currently follows all members of the #steemsilvergold community and holds the up to date member list, if anyone wants to go ahead and follow each other it’s very fast by checking out her list.
We don’t have any strict membership criteria and we love helping new members to learn and find their interest in precious metals. Just comment on any of STAX’s posts and you will be considered for membership. You’re pretty much in if you’re not some spammer. Many of us are passionate about educating everyone regarding the importance of holding at least a little bit if physical silver/gold just in case. We do hope that you choose to be active within the community and supporting each other as you will be supported in return with a vote from STAX @silvergoldbotty.
I want to let everyone know how the votes are calculated as currently they are weighted to help give back to my supporters. These are recalculated at the end of every month when the lease comes due, and votes are compiled. Otherwise bonuses for delegations are added when received. We currently have a minimum monthly lease of 10 000SP at a rate of 200STEEM/month. If we want to increase that it can also be considered.
For every 1STEEM that is donated toward the lease STAX gives you a 2% vote.
For every 100SP you delegate STAX gives you a 10% vote.
If you upvote STAX’s daily posts greater than 80% of the time, you get a 20% vote.
If you upvote STAX’s daily posts greater than 50% of the time, you get a 10% vote.
If you upvote STAX’s daily posts greater than 10% of the time, you get a 5% vote.
(Voting weights towards @silvergoldbotty are not mandated but please use your judgement)
All other members currently receive a 1% vote.
Shortly you should start seeing comments posted by STAX with your votes, and a link to this post.
Voting power is monitored closely and these are all subject to change as required. When available STAX will also cast manual votes to support members running contest and give-aways within the community or otherwise found to be supporting each other.
Please monitor your votes and if you detect and errors feel free to reach out the @phelimint on discord or comment here. Also be away that STAX is programmed to only cast votes on “quality” posts that meet a certain word count or word to video/photo/link ratio.
STAX has a Trail
There is also a trail set up on streemian HERE although I’m not sure if it’s currently working properly and streemian is notoriously problematic, but if you so choose please consider following it to further support all members within the community. STAX usually casts around 30 votes per day so please set your trail follow accordingly.
Daily Posts/Second Chance Post
STAX manually posts every day, although they are times when it is missed, the post may occur at irregular times, so you may find it easier to cast an automated vote with steemvoter.
These posts usually contain an update about voting and changes with STAX, please feel free to leave any feedback at any time and I am always open to suggestions on how people want to see the bot used.
I’ll try to give updates about contests running within the community so if you running something please go ahead and drop a link in any of my posts.
I also scour our tag #steemsilvergold and try to resteem and shout out at least 1 post of 2-5days old that is a quality post but doesn’t seem to be getting lots of support.
