Following this post from @flauwy, I've been tasked to start the creation of the new 1UP.
As a reminder, @utopian-1UP was an Utopian bot front-runner in which members of the community would decide which are the best posts to vote for. the @utopian-1up would then vote for the best post every 2.4 hours, followed by hundreds of curators in the trail.
What s new?
Our support dev @ederaleng is now working on populating our database with all the posts eligible for a 1UP.
In the meantime I have created the new route and the corresponding views for displaying the posts of a given community.
The route is
:community is the name of the community.
I have manually inputed one post in the database, but in the future, thanks to @ederaleng's work, this will be automated.
Here is how the community posts page looks like:
On the top, the current best 1UP-voted post shows up, next to a countdown until the community tail reaches 100% and starts the smart trail. I am already working on replacing the Voting Power by the new Voting Mana for this calculation.
Other posts will show under this header, order by number of 1UP votes and displayed 3 per rows.
In the next iteration, users who are logged in, have a sufficient reputation and are whitelisted (if needed) will be able to cast the 1UP votes
- Allow 1UP votes on it
- Vote on the best post of the period
As a demonstration speaks more than lots of words, I ve put back online the old Utopian1UP website. You can try by yourself and create a community and link a trail to it for testing purposes.
No votes will be casted do not worry, but it's an offline token so, for safety reasons, I would recommend using a test account.
