Some small progress on the subreddit

in subreddit •  8 days ago

In an attempt to rearrange the subreddit a bit better and make it easier to read and filter through posts you aren't interested in without having to read the full title, I started setting up flairs today.

There's been a small hick-up since we realized we don't have full permissions as moderators of the subreddit, which means we can't add more users to moderate it and play around with the css of flairs and since I'm the least technical person for this we will have to figure out some other ways. This also means though that we can't sticky important posts or news on top of the subreddit which would've been really needed for important developments and news such as posts from @steemitblog or @steemitdev for visitors of the subreddit.

What you can do now though is set up flairs, we currently only have 4 user flairs that you can choose from: Minnow, Dolphin, Whale and Visitor.

For post flairs we have a selection of this to make it easier for people to read so I recommend anyone posting on the subreddit to set their flairs depending on what your post is about, here is what you can choose from so far and if you have any more recommendations feel free to tell them here in this post.

This means that when you write a submission to the subreddit you can afterwards click on "flair" under your post title and choose one of those corresponding to your post.

Here on the sidebar is where you can find user flairs to choose your own flair, more will be coming soon and made more pleasing to the eye.


I will soon be starting to curate through posts listed on the subreddit as well to grow some activity on there so make sure to create a Reddit account and subscribe to https://www.reddit.com/r/steemit/ in case you haven't done so yet!

Thanks for reading!

I don't. Why has it increased so drastically in the past week, particularly SBD?!

·
·

Yes mine too has increased and can't understand the reason behind it. Can uh help.me out.

·
·

I don't really think anyone knows the reason why it rose so high to be honest.

·
·
·

Seems every alt which was half way decent had a surge at some point over the past week, Steemit just happened to be today.

·
·
·
·

But why did SBD rise instead of STEEM? STEEM is the much more obvious candidate for such a rise in my opinion.

·
·
·
·
·

SBD has the unique property that it is always worth at least $1 worth of Steem so it makes a good place to park some crypto to wait for a ride up or down. That along with it having no fee to send and the speed of the STEEM blockchain I am not supprised it is going to go up even higher. That will attract more people to join steem to try to earn them and then MOON and party blogs galore.

·
·
·
·
·
·

Ah, thanks for explaining! It must be pretty nice for traders to have a currency with a floor like the SBD does.

·
·
·
·

@blockchainttmft With the massive gains in bitcoin I bet a lot of people are using that new gains to pick up a few other coins and the cycle continues it is indeed an interesting time to be alive.

·
·
·

Korea + Bitcoin moon + altcoin fomo == :-D

·

hey, very good bby!

·

yes....good dude

I have come to Steemit from reddit. Being honest I love the depth of the huge community on reddit but the chance to earn a little bit has made me favor steemit.
It would be cool to have a reddit like interface for steem

·

I came to discover Steemit via Google search autosuggestion tool while searching for a better alternatives to Minds. From there, a whole new world of blockchain and cryptocurrency understanding opened up to me and changed the way I look at the internet for ever.

·
·

Minds looked promising, but, then it went nowhere. It feels to me that they are struggling to monetise their platform. When facing something like Steemit, they can't compete.

·
·
·

I agree! But Minds got a cool and elegant website design which is fresh looking to our eyes though. Several big name intellectuals are using their platform as a blogging service.

My four (4) major concerns about Minds, if they can get a way around it I might consider utilizing their platform for content marketing purposes.

  1. Poorly optimize permalink for blog post which contains generic alphanumeric characters.

  2. Lack of proper categorization in the infinite scroll for blog posts.

  3. Cluttered commenting system which is very user unfriendly to navigate.

  4. Poor font choice and text size particularly in the comment section.

The best thing about Minds is that, it is truly a censorship-resistant platform. The freedom of expression there is miles ahead of Steemit, truth be told.

·
·
·
·

I would agree with you on all of your points.

Can you please point me to the big names you are referring to on Minds?

I am rather disappointed with the quality of what I see in my feed.

"Minds is truly censorship-resistant", yes, the owners of the site seem to allow people free reign on what they post, however, the platform is still centralised. While internal censorship is not in play, external censorship could shut it down. Where as Steemit is decentralised and thus more resistant to external censorship.

·

Same here, convert from reddit to Steemit.

·

I've never been much of a Reddit fan. Steem was recommended and I fell into a great group of folks over at #steemsilvergold. I've been hooked ever since.

·

I discovered Steemit, by mispelling steam on Google... best typo so far, I reckon

·
·

Haha, a typo that could potentially make you rich ;)

·
·

Haha, that's hilarious

·
·

@constantinep that is the best STEEM discovery story I have heard. Sounds like the universe had a new way for you to pay for your games on steam by leading you to STEEM. If you think about it you can buy a game and write a review about it and share a video of it and earn more in Steem and SBD than the game cost you. Mining crypto with creativity oh Yeah!

·
·
·

hahaha now we are getting creative !

·

Earning from what is essentially a social media site?!?
What could be better

·
·

World peace and all that stuff would be better :P

·
·

it would be very favorable for many people, greetings

·

Crypto will save the world or kill it

·

This is a genius idea. I think the way Reddit is organized into subreddits is one of the best features. Reddit is my go-to place when I'm interested in how other people feel about different topics.

·
·

Yeah, that's true, and I do that as well. I am really looking forward to seeing how things will become here on Steemit once the Communities are released!

·
·
·

They have Communities planned? Can you link to (or offer) more information? I think that's an exciting upgrade.

·
·
·
·

You can read about it in the 2017 Roadmap at page 9. There is not too much info about it yet, but we'll get it some day ;)

Hello, I am on steemit more than 6 months, and I was posting almost everyday and sharing the link on reddit, who knows why there is no activity there in the steemit subreddit ? not even one comment, no thing. Will this flair help me to have some activity on my shared posts there ? On facebook there is much better activity !

·

I know I also found it weird how there was no activity there.

·

It might :) I'm going to start curating posts there more often, especially if you flair them!

·
·

I will, tell me please I am not a professional on reddit, did I flair this post there ? : https://www.reddit.com/r/steemit/comments/7h99mo/steem_dollar_sbd_hits_25_or_000023585_btc_35_in_2/?ref=share&ref_source=link (I changed the flair after posting this)

I changed today a flair to DOLPHIN because I love dolphins from my chilhood. ☺

Will every my post there will be with a flair DOLPHIN or just the new ones ?

·
·
·

You have changed your username flair to Dolphin. You can still flair your posts with another flair. Just go to the link you posted, and it should be an option to flair it right below the main post / above the comment section.

·
·
·
·

I didn't find that option, there is just sort by, can you make a screenshot please ?

·
·
·
·
·

Hmm, I can't really screenshot it, because it should only be visible to the person who posted the link. I could try to submit a post on the subreddit later today to see if I can find it and screenshot it :)

·
·
·
·
·
·

ok, I'll wait thanks

·

I can't say for sure because we don't have visitor stats, but I'm pretty sure I get a little love from Reddit when I post on the Steemit subredit. The votes are often pretty weak, so they are probably mostly from minnows like me. Still, it's nice to see somebody reading my posts. We all have to start somewhere.

Giving this a try again, hope I get it right Reddit has always been the go to place to find good content and information, not posted much in there.

So thanks for reminders about places to go back to and actually make use of @acidyo

Late to the game as always, didn't know the Steemit subreddit until reading your post! Just got on there and FLAIRED.

Works perfectly, many thanks @acidyo!

·

Nice ^^ welcome!

I just signed up for Reddit...was always a lurker....subscribed and will get involved over there.

Question: what is the value of having a subreddit for steem/steemit?

I know the crosslinks help to raise the status since Reddit is a high ranking Alexa site...but do you think other people on Reddit will be drawn to it/here?

·

I think it will be an important gateway to Steem once we get the tipbot up and running as well! :)

·
·

Is it acceptable to post our own content over there or is the posting of others preferred?

·
·
·

Reddit is done fam. Bought sold and full of shills and bots at this point. Been there for years now I'm here.

·
·
·
·

I hope steemit gets a community like reddit has/had. Ex bots and shills

·
·
·
·
·

Steemit eventually plants to add Communities, which will be something like the subreddits.

·
·
·
·
·

Yeah for sure tony. I think we get there things like that just take time. I would say for how short steemit has been running the progress has been insane. And with blockchain tech in everyones mind moving in this direction is really a no brainer. People are fed up and wise to whats happening/happened to site like fb and rddit. This is evolution and Im excited for it.

·
·
·
·
·
·

I have give up on facebook completely(never got into it in the first place really) I still hang out on reddit mostly because of the size of the community - ANY question answered over there. I have been spending most of my time here now, trying to find where I fit in ; ) Also excited for the future of steemit

·
·
·

Its fine either way! :)

Just try and flair them!

·

I am a long time Reddit user, and when I first heard of Steem I checked out the subreddit before ever going to the website. It was a spamfest, so that fact made me very skeptical of actually signing up on Steemit. I am very glad that I did, but I think having a strong media presence on other social medias is important if we want to "poach" users from that platform.

Oh, wow. You guys can't sticky posts either? What happened to the guy who created the sub? He just deleted his account and never said anything? That's such a bummer that things have been so difficult with setting it up.

If it wasn't already a decently sized sub, I'd just suggest starting from scratch on another. But, the progress you have been able to make so far is a step in the right direction at least. Also, Happy Independence day, by the way, bro!

I thought attempts at ... well, shilling for Steem and Steemit on Reddit had always been a complete failure. I gave up on it a long time ago, figuring "screw 'em, we don't need them. They'll find their way to us when they see the light anyway". Been subscribed to that particular subreddit for most of this year and it's a dead zone.

I applaud your persistence and determination though, @acidyo. If we can awaken a decent fraction of the folks at Reddit to the awesomeness of Steemit? Wow, that would be a gamechanger 👍

Glad to see it's getting some love. I know the goal of steemit is to not "post" for free, but would love to see the subreddit used as a discussion forum and maybe an idea exchange.

I think the steemit subreddit is extremely underutilized.

·

Yes, actually when I first heard about Steemit, I went straight to reddit to get more information about it, which didn't work out so well. So at least anecdotally it would have served as a great source of information for what steemit is about (if it wasn't cluttered with post promotion).

On the flip side, I made a reddit account finally after many years as a lurker, so I'm going to see if I can help some folks out on the reddit ;)

·
·

I had the exact same experience. I almost decided not to test out Steemit after checking out the subreddit. This is well over a year ago, and it might even have been worse with spam back then.

·
·

Very cool idea. I already have a reddit account, but think I'll definitely spend some more time there as well.

·
·

I heard about this place from one of my gambling buddies, we all love bitcoin and he liked to post stuff regarding art, when did steemit become live do you know? Literally ive never heard of this place... lol

·
·
·

July 4th, 2016 ;) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Steemit Interesting timing, if I do say so myself.

·
·
·

Heyyy ocho. Welcome- Have an updoot. It's not worth much, I'm new here too, but who knows maybe it will someday. Oh and you like poker and blockchain- check out virtue poker man. I can't wait for it to go live :)

Once submitted an OCD Daily and got downvoted to zero :P

·

lol, too bad you can't see who downvoted you for retaliation! xD

I already had a Reddit account.. subscribed! Useful information..

·

welcome! :)

Nice post

Small progress is still progress. I like progress.

Interesting, I would like to became a mod in that sub.

great it is

After this. I have to give it a try

·

Reputation - 56 - and still spam posts?

Wonderful blog-post! Really enjoy to read your content.

Good info :))

after I first heard about Steemit, I went immediately to reddit to get more statistics approximately it, which failed to exercise session so well. So at the least anecdotally it might have served as a wonderful source of statistics for what steemit is ready (if it wasn't cluttered with submit promoting).

on the flip side, I made a reddit account ultimately after a few years as a lurker, so i'm going to look if i can help a few folks out on the reddit

that's great post/info
keep it up and
thank's for sharing..

Some nice piece of information!

deneyip gorecegiz...

Yes sir, I have a raddit account username zakia65. And I subscribed. I am very glad to hear this news. Thank you sir.

Dude I love how you are trying to support this platform on all ends, a huge thumbs up for that. Without you, my @welcoming account would not even be half as succesfull!!!

This is exactly the kind traction we need. Word Domination!! move over redditt!! WOOOooooooo!!!

Giving this a try again, hope I get it right Reddit has always been the go to place to find good content and information, not posted much in there.

Hello, love what your doing with the subreddit. May I just suggest a "CONTEST" flair? so that for those who want to promote their contests on the subreddit (like me.lol) and those looking for contests to join would have an easier time finding one. Also, if you need someone to do some css I could possibly help you since I am a developer :)

Seems very weird to have a Steemit subreddit but I guess it mkes sense to have a presence there to try and raw some people over

Actually, i think a "reddit model" is the direction Steemit could go for a solid growing. The simplicity of the interface and "infinite" chain of comments, without losing visibility, should provide an amazing framework for upvoting and resteeming.

Best earnings #upvoteforupvote

Oh i didn't know the was a subbreddit for this

It is good .

I like it its so user friendly and have spicy configuration option.looking forward to join.

Thanks for sharing very good information.

superb post. informative and well explained. images in this post are perfect.

Thank you so much #acidyo for sharing this wonderful post. For sure it raises people's consciousness/ way to decide. Thank you once more.

it would be very favorable for many people, greetings

Radit is a front for Steam and it's as good for earning as little as Steam, but over time I think the situation will change and the profits will be many and many
Greetings to you
@walidsalah

nice historical work you done super post ever i like it very much

In particular, the steemit community is quite interesting to me and the implementation of this is amazing.

A credible new breakthrough, endless innovation from @acidyo and team will make it easy for followers and all STEEMIT users, salute ... keep on creating, because we need a lot of conveniences.

That's a great

Haven't reddit account. Useful information how it's works & what happen reddit. When I still reading your blog I did not known reddit.
Huge thanks @acidyo.

Good work & info. Hope all is well!

Nice this is whats up!!

/r/SCP. It's the subreddit for a fictitious wiki that lists thousands of anomalous objects, all being contained by the SCP Foundation (Secure, Contain, Protect). They've got everything:
A vending machine that will produce any liquid you can name
Tomatoes that hurtle towards someone if they tell a bad pun
Monsters that are impossible to kill, and nearly impossible to contain
Eldritch horrors so powerful that even writing down their information could destroy the world
An object that nobody knows anything about: what it is, where it came from, when it arrived, and who wrote the document.
A green goo that improves anything it touches. Just don't put it on a dead body.

really a very good post and add knowledge @acidyo

Wow, that's great!

Good job :P

Beautiful Post in subreddit

I'm an avid reader on reddit but never created an account. Hope I can learn this, by the way what's flair? Thank you.

I have never thought of opening the reddit account but it is due to your post that I am now going to join it very soon.

·

Don't do it. It's absolutely toxic

Wow that's way easier to browse than Steemit's main page

very Interesting post

Muy buen post amigo @acidyo te felicito por tan valiosa informacion aportada

Some small progress on the subreddit !!! really graet write

Well --no thanks, I prefer it here over Reddit!

Death to Reddit! Long live the King --Steemit!

Thank you this is interesting!

i thought we are the new reddit

How the fuq are you going to have a guy pouring acid on the reddit alien and have a subreddit.. that place is fucking wack. If anything we should organize and hijack that place

Great Article ! Reddit is cool . Well written and totally on point !

I agree with you, this is very nice project

this is so crazy but how is possible sbd price is more than steem ?

thanx for this i will try

again nice sharing, thank you. but I do not understand any of these things: /

would you like to share my share

Oh well, let's be active again

Reddit is the best forum that I have red.
There much informations and knowledge.

I have red this forums from 7 years ago.
Hopefully can give us more awesome knowledge

Thanks for sharing! I will give it a try

will come and take a look.

@acidyo this post is very useful for people who like to read, a lot of information that gives motivation especially for me personally who just knew steemit. even i like to imitate your writing style. I have followed your blog and I like it.

very interesting article. good information. hopefully steemit can be more advanced for the future.

whatever their decisions are there, I will still support you. Your my inspirations.

I understand why steem price is increased.

i have dreams of a reddit-like steemit interface, has that already been done?

Great article!
Thanks

Post some weed related posts on subreddit

https://www.reddit.com/r/TransientFlowers/

Does this mean that we are going mainstream?

STEEM is definitely one of the most undervalued coin with the most amazing team. i guess 2018 will be the year for STEEM. looking at the 1day all time chart of STEEM also gives us a hint that 2018 is the year where we can see the price of STEEM in double digit followed by three digit in the upcoming years. With a market capital of $424,219,607 USD and not a rise in price i see thousands of people investing in STEEM and believing in the Platform which is first of its kind to fund projects on social media platform and with STEEMIT solving real life problems by funding with the help of just upvotes, this is definitely the best use of Blockchain technology.

GO STEEM

I already had a Reddit .. subscribed! GREAT information like Steemit

This platform is the best in the whole world.....i want to appteciate your effort

·

Nah reddit ded - sold out long time ago. Now it's just corporate and state bots spamming real conversation to death. Aaron would be rolling in his grave

Thanks for the hard work, people like you are what drives this amazing community!

omg! this page is amazing! shooked

Nice post 👍 Thanks for sharing and and very useful information and good job ✌ @acidyo

Very cool this article
The great similarity between the Steam site and the Redet site in many things is the analysis found within the published Post that caused the price increase of Citi in that period
Greetings to you

This is great post! I like it! You have my support. If you don't mind, I would love if you could check out my profile!

Lol wait you're the one who curates the subreddit?

very nice post also very intersting and helpfull

I love reddit and steemit.I use both and for me it's perfect.
