Utopian: The New Utopian Bot is Out! Now Everyone Gets a Piece of The Cake!steemCreated with Sketch.

in utopian-io •  8 months ago

Utopian.io is the only platform rewarding Open Source contributions with Steem. The Utopian Bot that is powered by more than 3 MILLION STEEM POWER votes the contributions.

The Utopian Bot goes through every contribution and gives a vote based on many factors, like number of votes, amount of rewards, information in the post and many more.

We had some issues with the increasing number of contributions and some of them were not being voted at all. This is why we have decided to focus on the bot and make a ground breaking change. Now everyone gets voted by the bot, ALWAYS.


@stoodkev Made This Possible

Please please please go there and upvote this guy. He made this breaking change and explains in great details how the new bot behaves: https://utopian.io/utopian-io/@stoodkev/utopian-bot-update-major-changes

It is important to support contributors like @stoodkev. They are the basis for the Steem projects to work out!.

Other Important Changes to the Bot

Thanks to an idea by @favcau now the penalty for being voted by other bots has been decreased and it is more focused on the number of automated bots in total, than on the single vote.

Read his idea here. I have already implemented in the new bot: https://utopian.io/utopian-io/@favcau/utopian-bot-a-different-way-to-penalize-other-bots

The List Of Bots is increasing

Thanks to @espoem @ruah and @littleboy Utopian is able to detect a HUGE amount of automated/paid votes and assign a penalty based on that. This is because in Utopian Utopian.io you post about real hard work you did for an Open Source project and we believe it is not fair to get bigger rewards by just paying for automated upvotes.

The Utopian Bot Will Go 100%

We are increasing the start voting power limit day by day. Today the bot will start at 90%. Tomorrow at 95% and the day after at 100%. This is to use fully all the 3 MILLION POWER we have and to give bigger rewards.

The updated bot is here and includes the changes made by @stoodkev, me and @ruah: https://github.com/utopian-io/api.utopian.io/blob/master/utopian-bot.js

Cool, really a big bot!

Now everyone gets voted by the bot, ALWAYS.

As long as you prevent abuse and the moderators work on ensuring users get rewarded according to the effort put in. I assume you do, because I personally see no reason why a simple interface translation or feature suggestion get the same upvote from the utopian bot as a major contribution to an open source project.

With great power comes great responsibility. But I am sure you know that. :)


Well @techslut there are the moderators and still the weight is based on the params we already had. Low quality contributions may end up getting almost nothing because a small portion is reserved to them! :)


Good. Quality moderation and fair rewards are key to attracting more developers to the platform. I tried to get one of my SOs to join. He looked at the feed and was like: "Why is this guy getting so much for a 4 line code contribution? It's worthless!"
So... as much as I try and recruit developer friends, there are still challenges. Perhaps what @scipio suggested might help - better copywriting and FAQs for newcomers. Heck, took me forever and some personal support from you guys to figure out what's what in order to attempt a contribution. Simplifying that can go a long way.
In any case - keep up the awesome work, man.


I agree @techslut. In the new version of Utopian, ready within few months, project owners will also have some sort of control on the vote weight so to bring a more human approach into the voting flow ;) We are on everything! :D


Perhaps you should have challenged your SO. "Don't you see? You're a much greater developer. Do you imagine how much more you can make?"


Yeah, I am trying. Not easy. Men. :sigh:


Lol. In due time. :D

thanks for all team and team members . @elear great work

True you are right, not everyone gets voted by that bot, but its not even the vote that counts, its the idea of everything that im. Amazed at, cheers @elear you guys are making our steemit site a better home, thanks to dat

You did a good job @elear. Utopian.io get a bigger progress! Congratulation. Thanks.

An useful information @elear.


Nice job @elear, rewards must be based on hard work

Best project on the Steem Blockchain right now. Nice!

My question is: are the whakes using and taking advantage of this bot as well? And if so how fair you guys think it is?


What do you mean? @sergiomendes. All the sponsors get 20% of total author rewards based on how much they delegate. It is a fully decentralised approach https://utopian.io/sponsors


Ohhh alright. Sorry i didn't got tht part ehehe 😉 makes sense.

Nice post

wow that's really great to know that...
thank for your great info @elear

wonderful, great work again

hola como entro a @utopian por favor gracias.


Acá Utopian.io.
Los post deben ser en inglés.

This is really great.

Also, I would request that MSP lovebot be ignored as it just automatically upvotes my submissions as I am a delegating member of the Minnowsupport Project.

Can't help it !!

Am glad this ship is moving with a great force. Ride on the coast is clear!

Wow amazing! Thanks for your info @elear.

Utopian-io is getting better. I am glad to be part of it

How to use this bot and what are the rules to get bots

Awesome new project. Good job @elear and @stoodkev. Are increasingly eager to contribute to @utopian-io :)

Thank you for the contribution. It has been approved.

You can contact us on Discord.

Great news and may all the bugs debugged! All the best to the team!

An off-topic question regarding utopian.io:

  • Are all utopian "Ideas" propagated as issues to github? Let's say I create an "Idea" on utopian to a small unknown FLOSS project that's hosted on github. Will that automatically create an issue on that project's repository?

No for now @odd1 ideas are not pushed at all. We will change this in the future. Some project owners were complaining they only use Github issues for bugs. Therefore only bugs go there now.


Thanks for answering.

Thanks to all team and team members for their hard work...keep it up..

I love your posts😍

bang follow saya dong, neu follow long abg eu... kop bacut followers long.

@elear hey, how can I get him to vote on one of my posts?
