Art Word of the Day: Vulgar

in wordoftheday •  19 days ago

Term: Vulgar

Definition: Boorish; lacking in taste or

refinement; lacking good breeding. Crudely indecent, as are off-color jokes (now potential grounds for claims of sexual harassment.) Standards of decency are notoriously subject to change, but the most common ones concern exposure of body parts (baring legs has been taboo at some times, genitals at others) or functions (usually the expelling of fluids, solids, and gases, but sometimes even eating or drinking). Also, ostentatious self-display or expenditure that is pretentious or offensively excessive. An older meaning is: common; having qualities of or coming from the great masses of people. Another older sense of vulgar which is still referred to is in reference to the vernacular rather than to the language of more sophisticated speakers ? of Latin, or of whatever a region's tradition holds as more a sophisticated language.Also see bad art, kitsch, obscene, politically correct (PC), pornography, and ugly.

Art Word of the Day

Every day I make an attempt to add a little bit more art knowledge to the Internet, one word at a time. Realizing there aren’t many comprehensive and complete online art dictionaries, I set out on a mission to compile my own.

SteemAX helps minnow content-creators and whale curators by automating an exchange of upvotes between their quality blog posts, allowing both 1 to 1 as well as disproportional exchanges that grant bigger curations, better support than a bid bot, and the long-term support they both deserve.

"Why would you want that", you might ask. Good question. But to understand the answer consider for a moment that the Steem blockchain has been designed to be intrinsically capitalistic. Meaning those who invest their own money (or find money to invest) into Steem Power are going to make more money then those who don't. Although Steem was created to be capitalistic, very few "open markets" exist on the platform. Of those markets, the only thing traded is Steem for something. Steem for a vote. Steem for SBD. Steem for Steem Power. But the Steem ecosystem has more that can be traded. How about trading your vote for a vote, instead of for Steem? Now what if that turned into a long term support of traded votes? Voila:

Version 1.6 of SteemAX has just been released! Users can now automatically accept 1:1 ratio invites, as well as set your vote power threshold in the new settings options. And of course SteemAX lets you batch send and accept invites now, making the process of finding exchange partners much easier. Speaking of which, check out SteemAX new top users page to find even more exchange partners!
