RE: Introducing a brand new Steemvoter!

in #steemvoter4 years ago

Nice job on this. I was glad to see that in addition to streams for posts, comments, and also added the ability to create streams for upvotes. I find that very useful.

A couple questions:

  1. Will the Voting Power setting cause my votes to be scaled to the voting % used by the voter my stream is following? I.e. if I have the Voting Power for the upvote streem set to 50%, and the account I follow then votes on a post with 20%, would my account vote on that post with 50% x 20% = 10%? Or would it just be the flat 50%? For me, it would be far more useful if it was the former (i.e. 50% x 20%), although I imagine it would make the most sense to give the user the option (as SteemAuto does).

  2. Let's say I have 1) a POST stream that follows the POSTS of userA, and 2) an UPVOTE stream that follows the UPVOTES of userB. What happens if userB votes for a post made by userA? Which vote of mine will take precendence? For my use, it would be preferable for my vote from the post stream of UserA to take precedence.

  3. Would you consider adding the ability for your users to specify tag includes/excludes? In other words, I may want to create a post stream that votes for a particular content creator, but only when they post to a specific tag. More specifically, I may want to upvote only photography related content created by that specific account, but not other types of content they may create. By the same token, I may want to upvote another account when they post content to any tag except NSFW, for example. This feature (which Streemian offered) would be nice to have.

  4. I noticed a bug. If you try to edit a stream you've already created, the existing settings for that stream are not reflected on the Edit Stream page.

Thanks in advance.


Some intelligently smart questions here. Smart mind I must commend

Hey, thanks! Hope to answer your questions below:

  1. Current voting rule will use a fixed voting power which you control. We are planning to release a separate rule type which will allow for automated VP scaling based on curator's vote strength sometime during the beta, stay tuned for updates.

  2. Post Stream will normally take precedence since it would be processed first from the blockchain, however this is not entirely guaranteed or enforced since the system is made to be asynchronous by design. In case post Stream fails for any reason it will skip it and run the next available vote. Also note that Streams will always take precedence over Guilds.

  3. Tag includes / excludes are a premium feature of Guilds and are available today - you can set up your own private guild (it will not be listed publicly) and specify the tag based rules when setting guild Curators.

  4. Thanks, will look into that.

Just FYI, the #4 has been fixed and deployed live. You have to refresh the app a few times to get the latest changes.

To be very honest, as a newbie, I find this a little complicated & confusing but I guess this platform is relatively new & still finding it feet. It would be great if steemit could find a way of giving new, unknown content creators who really post good quality content a little break... but either way, its an amazing platform & ppl just have to take more time to work it all out.
