RE: The LEO Dilemma Part 2: Why I've Changed My Mind About Changing My Curation

in LeoFinance5 months ago

One of the types of content that I was particularly targeting are these "I powered up x LEO" posts. The majority of these carry maybe 5 sentences of text along with a screenshot of some LEO being powered up.

Agree with you especially when this is all the person posts.

However, I think we will be able to better "moderate" that once the microblogging is released. That is the ideal content for that whereas the "long blog" section is for more serious works.

Personally, I think once that feature is released, that is where many will be spending most of their time.

Thus, we will have a place for all content. That doesn't navigate the Leo versus non-leo minefield but it does put the intent and effort on a different level.

It's a proven bait to lure in wales though and something that will stop once the whales aren't biting anymore. People should care less about whales and focus on other fish instead.

Its alot easier to catch other fish and that's still food on the table. So to speak.

Very true. It is always a stepping up process.

Try to appeal to those accounts just slightly larger than yours and move up. There will be a lot more of them than Whales, and they can help carry you up especially as those accounts get larger and more powerful.

Yeah, attention from larger accounts is basically a shortcut to personal growth, but it would be impossible for the few whales we have on LeoFinance to curate everyone with 100% votes, so that would be like fishing for real..

  • A long and boring waiting game. (I don't like to fish...)

A better approach would obviously be to go for smaller fish, in an attempt to score upvotes of any size, as those votes will add up eventually.

The power of numbers. Few seem to really internalize it.

While the vote amount might be small, there are hundreds as compared to a handful. Plus, a closer bond establishes between those growing together.

There was a time my hive account was teeny. There are people who I interact with today who were with me at minnow level. Today, we are all orcas.

Over the past 3+ years, we grew together.

This is so true, and it also makes things fun.

I've made a bunch of friends over the years and even though the majority of us never grew into orcas, (and literally everyone I ever brought to Steem gave up), I'm still here.

With LeoFinance, engagement came back in the way I've always wanted, so it's like giving me (us) a second chance of being part of something cool again. A chance I'm definitely going to take.

I agree that microblogging will radically change the dynamics. To some degree, this conversation is relevant today and will be much less relevant in less than 1 month.

The debate over rewards will never end. I have my perspective and each person in the community has a unique one.

I think there’s generally a gap in great content being overlooked. This combined with the fact that some of these quick posts about staking LEO are earning 20x more rewards is what has driven a lot of users to send me messages/make posts and comments about the issue.

I think this is a self-regulating process. The whales/curators/community will evolve and adapt as complaints are aired out and new features are added

Like you said, the debate over rewards will never end.

Something I thought about in the past, was to limit the amount of times someone can vote on a specific author per 24 hour. This would obviously affect authors who produced multiple articles per day, but it could potentially be something that would prevent some authors to post 'garbage' as well.

It will be if we made it so.

We are going to have to be diligent about notifying people of posts that belong in the microblogging section as opposed to long form. This is where the community will have to step up.

I dont know what the maximum number of words are for the microblogging but that makes a good cut off point. If a blog is below 200 words, it always should be in that section.

Not sure how microblogging will play out, or how it will actually work.. But from the little information I have so far, it does sound like a very cool idea.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

From what I understand, it will have the look of Twitter so anyone who used that platform will feel comfortable with it.

However, from the blockchain perspective, it will be treated as comments. Thus, it does not appear as a blog post in your profile but under the comment section. This will avoid the "mess" that could come in both personal profiles and in community feeds.

It sounds very interesting..

Do you know how it will work in terms of auto votes?
I mean, the first thing that pops up in my head is "tweets" that are rewarded highly.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Comments do not get upvoted on autovoters I dont think.

I am going to write a post but I believe there needs to be another token for the "tweets".
