We need your help!

in travel •  last year

Both @blueorgy and me, @martibis have been incredibly busy in real life. But we haven't forgotten our beloved Steemit Worldmap! With the map growing at such an incredible pace and time a bit short on our hands, we're looking for a few awesome people, to help us out in the near future! There are three ways you can help to improve the Steemit Worldmap even more! Want to give us a hand?


#1 Add your posts to the map

We already have an amazing amount of posts on the map, considering we have only been live for about three weeks, but my vision for the map is to literally be able to go to any place on the map and have some stories pop up. How amazing wouldn't that be?! So if by any chance you see a cool place on the map, where there isn't a marker yet and you've been there: make an awesome post and add it to the map!

For those who are just tuning in now, to add a post to the map add the following somewhere in your post: !steemitworldmap 0 lat 0 long A description d3scr
Change the 0 before the lat and long to the respective latitude and longitude of your post (you can find these on google maps) and change "A description" to a description you find fitting! Make sure to end it with d3scr


#2 Help us select daily posts

If we can find 10 people to help us select the three best daily posts, we have the greenlight from @Aggroed to start a channel in the PAL discord group. So if you want to have a say in what you believe are the best posts on the Steemit Worldmap, leave a comment here saying you support a Steemit Worldmap channel! We will start the post promotion the first of October!

Rules for selecting a post:

  • Has to be added on the Steemit Worldmap less than 24 hours ago.
  • Has to have the travel tag (we want to focus on one subject)
  • Has to be less than 4 days old
  • Can not be your own post
    If you really believe your own post to be awesome, send it to me in a DM on discord

We will make a daily post, listing what we believe are the three best posts that were added to the Steemit Worldmap at that given day! These posts will be upvoted by @steemitworldmap!


#3 Delegate

I will reward the authors of the three best daily posts with an upvote from the @steemitworldmap account.
As I'm new to Steemit I am still building up voting power! So any delegations would definitely be a welcome addition!

Your delegation will be used for:

  • Upvoting the three best daily posts added on the Steemit Worldmap to help amazing authors!
  • Upvoting the one daily post from @steemitworldmap so it gets more traction

The top 20 delegators will be mentioned at the end of every post, as this kind of trust and support is amazing and it deserves some recognition!

If you have more questions before you'd like to jump in and delegate, I'm usually at least once a day available on discord with the tag Steemitworldmap and Martibis#2314

Cool idea. Will give it a try on my next post. Pity i can't do it for my older ones.

·

Awesome, can't wait for it to show up!

It works on posts you can still edit, but that's only up to 7 days back unfortunately!

I do like the @steemitworldmap :D We (@osm0sis) have submitted over 10 articles with the map on already!

·

Awesome, the more the better, haha!

Resteemed to the Aussies since we like to travel a lot.

·

Thank you, your continued support really means a lot!

Onwards to thousands of markers on the map, aaaaah!

Will definitely help out with Nos. 1 and 2! Can't do the 3rd one yet as I'm still a baby minnow. Haha!

·

That's awesome, I'm already waiting for your next awesome post to show up for sure, haha!

·

What is your discord tag, I'll add you to a group chat we're forming as well!

·
·

EDIT: here's my discord tag: dean101#1281. Thanks!

·
·
·

Adding you now!

I love adding to your map and looking at all of the other great entries from around the world!

·

Awesome to hear that you like it, I've seen your photo series pop up!

I feel you, it's incredible to see all these stories from all around the map!

@steemitworldmap I have tried several times with number 1. However, I am still not succeeding. Not sure what I am doing wrong.

·

Hey, yes, we're still researching what's going wrong there! Will let you know when we find it!

I can help out with number 2, I already scroll that tag everyday and are somewhat active o discord evreyday :D
I support the creation of the channel!!

·

Awesome, looking forward to seeing you in the channel soon!

·
·

Great! I went to the PAL server but I couldn´t find the channel, I guess it will be opened in a few days?

·
·
·

Yes, it's not opened yet (will be in a few days), feel free to give me your discord tag and I'll add you to a group chat for now!

·
·
·
·

Sounds great, my discord is anomadsoul #8455, thanks!

·
·
·
·
·

I've send you a request (need to be friends before I can add you apparently!)

I've started to build up the pins in Taiwan, and will gradually add more as I post about my travels

·

That's awesome, can't wait for more to show up there! Put Taiwan on the map all the way, I love it, haha!

·
·

Btw, I'm interested in helping out on #2, how do i start?

·
·
·

Just hit me up on discord, but you've already done that, I'm now talking to @Aggroed to open the channel!

this is just too brilliant

·

Glad to hear you're enjoying the concept!

This is a really cool idea. I will look for good posts to curate and contribute to this fun initiative.

·

Awesome, it's appreciated!

Just thinking is it possible to convert the pin details to a clickable link that takes people to the world map? I tried doing that the normal way but it doesn't work.

·

Do you mean the little code you put in your text?

If yes, that wouldn't be possible before your post is made, as that is what we use to make the post in the first place (so if you make it a link, before it's on the map it'll cause problems).

What should work (I haven't tried it yet) is editing it afterwards, putting the code between square brackets like these: [] and immediately follow it up with normal brackets containing the post link you should have gotten from the comment! I'm not sure if it will work, but I'd guess it would and should have the desired effect!

·
·

Yes that would work, but I was just thinking if there was anyway to make the code look 'uncode' if you know what I mean ^_^

·
·
·

I know what you mean, it would be good, and possible, but it's just a bit risky, as it would have to be unique, for example, at the start we just started it with Steemitworldmap instead of !steemitworldmap, but if someone would type Steemitworldmap somewhere in their post it would trigger the bot, even if they had mentioned it without meaning to add a post to the map!

That is just an awesome initiative.
Was just thinking of creating a map of all steemit users presence. I think what you guys are doing is quite close to that!
Will keep an eye and try to be of help !

·

Thank you, we'll keep on improving it!

Aha, I found it, I remembered seeing a map that accomplishes what you want to do (haven't used it much myself, but it might be what you're looking for): https://www.zeemaps.com/map?group=2610381

·
·

thank you!

Oh my @unityeagle check this out! We were just talking about an idea like this and the community continues to amaze me in the creativity. I line in New Mexico and have some awesome photos of this area I will start posting them up with stories of this part of the globe.
So many cool ways to interact with steemians this is too cool.
With much gratitude

Can't wait to see your posts pop up on the map, currently I'm still able to check out most of them (probably won't last much longer at the rate the map is growing)!
You're so welcome, and I hope you'll be able to enjoy it to the fullest!

This looks like a great project!

·

Hey, glad to hear you like it!

·
·

I'll try to use it next time I post something worth being in the map. Can I sandwich it in code or sub markdown and would still work?

·
·
·

Dunno about the code @deveerei. But I always use the sub markdown and it works!

·
·
·

The sub markdown should work, in code it might not work (feel free to test it though!)

·
·
·
·

I see. Thanks!

I support the creation of a channel!
Thank you for all you guys are doing- looking forward to the map being covered!

·

You're so welcome, and thank you for helping out with it!

Hi, I like what you're doing. Will definitely like to put Wales (Part of the UK) on the steemitworldmap. Upvoted, Followed and Resteemed.

·

Awesome, can't wait for those posts to show up!
Thanks for the support!

Great idea! Like where this is going. Will definitely try it out when I get my camera.

·

Awesome, can't wait for your posts to show up!

This is a great idea! It's always nice to see different visualizations of posts especially if you are interested in travel! The "map view" gives you more room to explore!

Will give it a try!

If you still need any help let me know! @zalb

I'm a UI/UX designer and I also write about my travels and adventures I've been on!

Cheers!

·

Somehow I missed your comment here! Yes, that was the idea, anyone using the map is able to just travel around on the map and read awesome stories from all over the world!

I think developer-wise we're good at the moment, but we're always open for suggestions (I haven't studied UI/UX) so that for me so far is a bit of a "how would I like it?"-kind of thing, haha!

I saw the post you added to the map earlier and added it to the Editors Choice map straight away, haha!

I will try my best to contribute this project! If you need I can translate this article to Italian for spreading your work.

·

Awesome, saw your post already pop up on the map!

If you're active in the Italian community, that would be awesome for sure!

Such a cool project. I just added my post to the @steemitworldmap , will do some more soon.

·

Hey, I'm glad you like it! As you may have noticed we're experiencing some technical issues at the moment, and working to resolve them!

This project is very attractive and great idea is it still possible to add this post of mine? Otherwise I would try in my next post @steemitworldmap

https://steemit.com/travel/@philfreetotravel/my-top-5-favorite-locations-in-australia-a-day-trip-by-bike-in-rottnest-island

·

Heya, it's definitely still possible to add it to the map (as long as you can edit your post you can)! At the moment we're having some technical issues though, so it might not show up immediately!

Gimme couple days... i will represent Vancouver BC -- a great home away from home for many Aussies ❤️

This is a great concept and much more interesting way to discover content/people on Steemit! Keep up the good work and if you need a UX designer give me a shout :)

·

Thank you, and will do!
