Making things more fair in ShadowBot! Version 1.1.2 (Erebus) [Minor Release]

in #steemit6 years ago (edited)

After 5 days of running Erebus we learned even more! One of the best features we included was the ability to limit your account to up voting any other account to 15 per week.

Building on this idea we realized the way the Shadow Pool prioritizes by rank, it would unfairly allocate far more votes to those at the top than those at the lower end. Starting now ALL users' accounts enforce a 2 votes per day per account. In simple terms, your account will only place a maximum of 2 votes each day for any given member's posts!

This will help ensure all members get votes instead of only those at the higher Shadow Rank scale!

Thank you again for everyone being involved in this project and greatly appreciate the feedback! We hope this minor update furthers our goals to help support everyone from Minnow to Whale!

Happy Steeming!


Nice post @shadowbot please tell me how to increase my shadow rank ?
I reached 20% shadow rank but recently dropped 1% how to this?

You are ruining my STEEMPOWER your steeling my power & my money! Your being muted & reported fuck you!

You are going to be flagged by someone because of spamming like this...
Really bad way to promote your post!

Also consider reading @em3's comment on your latest post. Sorry, but sharing pictures on Steemit, and not even indicating your sources, won't get you far on this platform.

Don't screw up your reputation by getting flagged!

Looks interesting. I'm curious to see how it changes things

But you are at the top of the upvote list. Some of your votes might be trickling down to us bottom feeders.

Take a gander we are hitting all the way down to 10 Shadow Rank already just 26 hours after these updates!

Nice, keep up the good work Shadowbot.

This sounds interesting to me...will you please explain the shadow bot project. Thanks!

If i want to disconnect from @shadowbot services, how do i do it?.

need to reset your private posting key I believe. Shadowbot might be able to remove you from the list if you ask.

Inside Settings at the bottom simply enter your Private Posting Key and click "DELETE ACCOUNT"

Thank you. Am just asking. I think you are doing a good job.

Thanks, yes we added into Settings inside all accounts the ability to remove yourself completely from ShadowBot if for any reason you do want to!

Ok, but what if you just want to pause it, i do you go about it?

Excellent news. You gotta spread a little love. I await all the detractors to come crawling back pleading for an account once they see how successful shadowbot members are. I might keep a list of all the bleating goats. :-D

Thanks for being with us! Our latest post we declining payment just to help give a little boost to all our minnows and keep things fair!

You've gotta spread the minnow love. :-)

Personally, I think I'm lower than whale poop and you can't get much lower than that. :-D

That is our goal! And no you aren't every member of steemit who contributes good content is worth more than poop!

The updates we are rolling out as everyone sleeps are helping more and more minnows that are part of us as well as every salmon/dolphin! Glad to have you aboard!

I'm glad I'm onboard. Not sure what some of those people were bitching about at the weekend?

I'm excited to see what new features are rolled out.

Glad to have you on board! You can check out our latest up votes thanks to ShadowBot reaching down to the 10 Shadow Ranks! We are honing in on the perfect balance of allocating votes to all! Take a look (First column is the Voter, Second column is the Author of the Post being up voted):

would like to have a referral system

The problem with a referral system is we have no way to pay people for it. If you have suggestions we any features we are open to listen and run them past everyone involved!

you can make points system and give the referral a percentage from the new accounts gained points and you gain points for every upvote and it will be calculated depending on your steem power or shadow rank

Do not give out your Private key people only shonky scammers will ask you for that because they can take it over and spam through it. It's called a Private key for a reason which is a service many use on requires your private posting key to function. If you want to understand more about private Posting Keys please read the FAQ:

Totally just used 3 of my last 4 votes on the same person.

Thanks for alerting us to this. We fixed the glitch it was letting 3 per 24 hour not 2, Time offset issue. Sorry for the glitch and thanks for alerting us to it, we have it fixed now!

Not sure how we offended you but we apologize for the mishaps we may have caused you!
