The other day, I had an encounter with @steemcleaners.
I learned, that once someone denounces you, or if you cross-post your content on different platforms, @steemcleaners might flag you. When that happens, you need to personally go to @anyx' discord and then convince this guy to clear you:
This also applies, if you never posted in English and do not speak the language.
Now, some might say that is the reverse of a normal justice system, where you are not guilty until proven otherwise - I think it is brilliant. Let me explain.
The Curation Question
Most STEEM high rollers do not have the time or motivation to curate.
Now some might say that is just lazy and arrogant - I think it is perfectly reasonable; Imagine pulling a fortune from a bubble gum machine only to find out the whole operation forces you to work 30 minutes a day and that it takes 10 clicks within every 24 hours to generate optimal interest rates.
Who would want to work like that, after lucking out so much and especially if there is an endless supply of people, who desperately want a piece of the pie ?
The hardest job on STEEM seems to be curation.
Now some might say, that they enjoy the opportunity to allocate some cents of rewards to their favorite authors or a fresh piece of undiscovered content, and that this is the only feature that completely sets STEEM apart from everything they have ever seen before - I think it is just a hassle for the whales.
With the high supply of bored authoritarian types, it would be stupid not to take advantage of their free time and self-hatred to strengthen your stake; Give them a small role and not only will they secure your interest rates better than you ever could, they will also shield you from any personal responsibility and happily attack anybody just to feel important for once.
Apparently - despite the brilliance and simplicity of this system - there are still problems.
People conceive it as unfair or rigged. They feel the free market of posts was corrupted by giving a small group of people all this power, who got it mostly only because they wanted it - I personally am happy to delegate all my responsibilities to @steemcleaners, @ocd and @curangel, but there are still individualists and rogue authors on steem and they are constantly challenging the whales to look at shit and generally annoy them. They are totally in the way of fat gains.
Let us turn the thing upside down completely - just like @steemcleaners.
It is absolutely brilliant.
The curators could save so much time, if authors would just go to their Discord and ask first. Think about it: Instead of posting, you get the review first !
Before you even start writing, just ask them, what they want to read. They will love you for it !
Why would they want to curate after the fact, if they could just edit ahead of posting ?
Why are you wasting your time writing in a format that you like or about topics that interest you, if none of @acidyo's or @anyx's or @pharesim's enforcers want to be bothered with it ?
We could save so much time and creative efforts, if they would just give out guidelines, what a post should look like and what it should be about.
Take a good look at @steemstem here; They are already halfway there and normal authors, who are not properly schooled and write too straight will not even be considered. That is efficiency; precurated content with high academic standards - You know there will not be anything dangerous in there, at least !
We should totally also consider this approach for proposals.
Too many proposals have not been first shown to the elite slack - Just look a @steemchiller's cheeky little proposal. Is it too much to ask to show your proposals first to the people who had the idea to create this independent pool for funding ?
We all know how efficient central panning is and that Delegated Proof of Stake, or Proof of Brain or voting in general are just some fancy concepts that stand no chance in the real world. Why would you let that idealistic nonsense get in the way of your profits ? How is that for a proof of brain, right ? I call it proof of sense.
If you are waiting for the next part of the beem tutorial: I am waiting for @holger80 to return, as he runs that repository and has gone missing
