Increasing your UA Score

in ua •  3 months ago

We have noticed many people asking how to increase their UA score, specially on our discord channels. Since this has been brough up plenty of times, it might be productive for the platform to put this on an official publication and hopefully answer this question in a more definite manner.



How is the UA score calculated?

Although this question has been answered since our launch, it seems obvious that to some the system is still unclear, or in the very least very complicated to understand. So with that in mind, we will try to explain it in a none technical way.

The scores are computed daily and they track the follows and unfollows on the blockchain. We start with our trusted accounts, witnesses and evaluate their ranks by determining how active they are, if they are up to date, their stake, etc. From there the trust network expands and we calculate the rest of the scores.

It's easy for anyone to check the top UA ranks on our website and check your own using steemconnect.

Is there a way to increase your score?

Of course there is, but some people are putting efforts on the wrong things. In other words, by unfollowing people with the idea of increasing your score, you might actually be hurting it, making people stop supporting you and unfollow you as well.

On top of that a clever steemian should be focusing on expanding their network and influence and not the opposite. It almost seems counterproductive to take the reductive approach when everyone is trying to expand their influence. Think about that for a second.

So what is the trick?

There are no shortcuts here, anyone who is interested in growing their influence on the blockchain has to expand their network the right way. Becoming an interesting content creator, interacting right, attracting followers using the dynamics we already understand: Interact with your audience, curate your comments, comment on other people's post, etc.

If users work on their network, become part of a community, which we strongly recommend, join our discord and make some friends, some new allies, then those users will no doubt increase their UA score over time.

Closing Thoughts

We will try tackle these common doubts in short form posts as to create a repository of common questions people have regaring @steem-ua. However please feel free to participate of the conversation in the comments below and share your experience with @steem-ua so far.

That's well said.
All the very best for your efforts in rolling this out.

Do you check if people have voted for witnesses? That may be a good way to judge engagement and also incentivise voting for witnesses

That made it about as clear as you can make a glass of muddy water, only to determine what you thought was a glass of muddy water is in reality a glass of extra strong guinness stout black beer. But as I am comfortable with where I am and who I follow, and am not trying to learn what I can do to get a better score so I can improve my UA artificially, I am fine with your answer. Keep as dark as guinness stout and never clear the air or water on what it takes to increase your UA score, or we end up with another broken reputation representation.

Cheers! ;-)

yep, I'll be following and unfollowing people based on if I think they are interesting (or not!). Not on if it might affect some mysterious "UA" score that I have no reason to care about.

I just gave you 100% upvote for not providing an easy 'gaming' solution.

hahaha - I like your way of thinking! 🙂

Although I guess if you want some kind of idea how its calculated all you really have to do is find a range of ranks/ UA scores from people's omments and then compare that with their user data - xomments, followers etx..10 would give you some idea.

Then again this all might change.

well @scipio , i hate to nag but i still havent heard what the selection procedure is , do i just click the delegation link and do it or do you have to screen it first ? i dont want to delegate to find out you dont accept

not that i think there will be a problem

as shown here :

i just would like confirmation first

·

consider that answered then :p

I add delegation. It's I like...

·

Thx! And welcome to @steem-ua !

Oh thanks for the explainer! Kinda hard for me to follow every single projects discord or telegram :)

If you gotta choose one, then pick the steem-ua Discord! ;-)

Appreciate the explanation @steem-ua; it's an exciting initiative... still trying to understand all the bits and pieces.

I have noticed that on some posts, there is a comment by @steem-ua, sharing the poster's and the post's rank, but not on others. I thought this was maybe related to the highest ranked posts/posters in the Steemit ecosystem, but earlier today I came across one where the poster was ranked 20000-something. What's the common thread there?

Thanks in advance!

=^..^=

The text is different on @utopian-io posts, could it be that?

Greetings, everyone. That aspect is clearer now. Thanks for addressing these questions.

Thank you for this beautiful information, to make it easier to use Steemit .

I have a couple of weeks approximately in the Discord channel of Steem-UA, but it seems to me that there are some processes that I do not understand, and so, before interacting I wanted to document myself, to proceed with the selection of the right path, which I must follow within the community that they represent. Thank you for this information. It is very useful for me...!

I tend to keep following only a few people because I don't want to clutter up my feed (most posts I'm interested in come via two or three tags so I just look at the newest posts there). Do I hurt my UA-Score with that? And if this score is calculated via "chain of follow" wouldn't I hurt my followers with not following the people whose posts I read?

·

Solid following approach! I do the same!
And nope, no worries on your UA_Account score / rank for doing so!

·
·

Thanks for the answer :)
And how do "dead" accounts count? I clean up regularly - why should I follow people where there's been nothing to follow for weeks? (Using Steempeak these Steemians get a bookmark there and I take a look every now and then to see whether someone became active again)

Yes, been catching up on all this. Sounds like its progressing well.

Good explanation. Thanks! :-)

I am all for this. Thanks for the post @steem-ua. Upvoted and resteemed. My ua score is still 0 so I guess I got lots of curating still to do. My own post will be awhile.

I just had an interesting conversation with @ura-soul where we discussed the pro and cons of steem-ua. You already resteemed his post which I found very informative. https://steemit.com/steem/@ura-soul/steem-ua-my-thoughts-possible-integration-into-steemocean-com-and-what-me-being-ranked-125-on-steem-ua-might-mean-in-reality
I added the following idea as well to the comments and maybe you can give me a feedback as well on this idea. Here is my text that I posted.
Thanks for your good explanation @ura-soul. I like your generosity concept it would be great to measure who is really supporting the Steem community at a wider range.
What comes to my mind in this whole discussion is that it would be nice to have different steem-ua measurement tools for different purposes. For example lets use Steem-ua for ranking posts in the trending section. Lets use your generosity Index to determine who is sharing and spreading the Steempower effectively. Lets create Steem-IA for investors to measure who is willing to hold on to its stake when it comes to Airdrops of SMT ( for example your score would be lower if you power down or if you selling steem, but higher if you hold on to Steem power and if you are a buyer of Steem). Or lets create Steem-DA for developers.
Therefore different measurement tools would be more effective and would fit more to the different kinds of users on Steem ( content creators, investors, developers, witnesses) could focus more on their field of interest.

Proud to be involved with the project! I am at the point in my journey in which I need to focus o. increasing my engagement and metrics like these will definitely help me monitor my progress. I am hoping that my normal activity here in the community will do this as I have been expanding my exposure to other content I normmaly do not see on my feed.

Interesting so far... I have delegated 25 SP for the project and last week I've increased it to 100 SP. Still waiting for the update to be reflected. :-P

I don't mind having a ua score of 4.

I think the most important part, based on my feedback from Steem-Ua's comments was initially to increase engagement with people leaving me comments. I've been doing that since noticing; and have been watching my rank slowly increase, as that's been my one area of weakness previously.

·

Yeah, same here. I've also started to comment more on the posts of my followers. It's been a smart move to incentivate it :-)

Well, I haven't had much time to look into Steem UA since its inception. But considering the fact that I have been hearing feedbacks from friends, and with this repository I should consider getting on the train with others before its get late.
Thank you @steem-ua

I want to work with @steem-ua. What is the procedure ?

Thanks for making it more easy to understand.
I will try to increase my ua score by following tricks provided by you.

Hello @scipio, hello @holger80 - 2nd inquiry...
I'm not in your list https://steem-ua.com/delegators
Something seems to go wrong...

Excellent post, hopefully I can work to increase my UA score following your explanation. Keep up the good work 😁

Posted using Partiko Android

I see many talking about your scoring system. Talk of modifying how they behave here. I hope that trend doesn't continue or it defeats the idea of a social platform.

Just curious, since this seems to be something many are pushing to replace the current reputations system. Do you foresee a time that one does not have to log in to look at their score? I do not use my passwords anywhere but here at Steemit, no Steemconnect or anywhere else. I have no idea who those people are and would never give them (or any of the other apps) possession of my keys.

I've had a look at some of the posts ranked according to your UA algorithm. There are some stinkers doing well in the rankings. I think you have a lot of work to do to prove that your rankings have value.

I wish you all the best and I want you to succeed. We really need a better way to rank posts than what we have now. I already think you surpassed our existing system. That though is a very low bar. Bots have completely destroyed 'proof-of-brain' on this platform.

I totally agree with you on this

good post

To be honest, especially considering that end of the day upvotes and thus financial rewards are involved, any explanation beyond the information already provided - and even rehashing of such - risks to incentivize not organic behavior and bought interaction.

i was wondering if there's an easy-to-access API so i can embed the score and rank in my statistics i use in certain posts directly with curl or something (i dont use python) that doesnt require steemconnect first ?

there must be since smartsteem displays the score ... but i guess i'll ask on discord tomorrow

Thanks for the update @steem-ua! I will be working on my score! 😎

Wowzers, rank #217 is not too shabby! Trying to get there myself! ;-)

It definitely works (just checked my score)! :-)

Thanks for building this up and finding a way to incentivate user engagement on the blockchain. It's a concept that has been missing for a long time.

Keep it up!

It thought it'd be fixed soon, but it's still like this at least for several days. or i may misunderstand something? why the sum isn't 100%?
