If there's one thing I've learned from the recent Steem pumps over the years, it's that money attracts scammers/spammers/bad actors like a magnet.
So, with Hive currently being at ~70 cents and the internal pricefeed slowly catching up (at the time of writing we're at 38 cents), we should prepare & expect people coming to Hive, trying to do no good & trying to milk the system.
Luckily, we've got something, which is called:
Now, before you go out and downvote everything that moves, keep in mind , that we should also expect people coming to Hive who have no idea how this works, what rewards are and why downvotes even exists?
So what do I mean with that? Well..
Be vigilant to bad actors, merciful to new users & educating to all users
I don't think we're able to catch all the bad actors, but making sure the trending pages & hot pages are filled with good & honest content (pref. not always the same old faces) is something we should strive for.
The reason I named it
"honest" content and not
"quality" content is because the quality is subjective. Sometimes, a good meme is worth more/more fitting than a 3 pages long post.
With this said: I'm also interested in what YOU think that we should be doing or how we can make sure that content is rewarded fairly.
For example: in order to reduce the "same old faces" on the trending page, I've reduced the voting weight of my auto-votes/curation-trails.
So, what would you do/are you doing?
