Busy v2.4 Release: New features that will make you love Busy.org

2년 전

One of our biggest updates so far! Notifications, IPFS, Search, Activity, etc.

To our new users, here’s a few links to posts that gives you an introduction to Busy, or our Busy v2 Beta Release note.

Updates And Thanks From The Busy.org Team!

Thank you to everyone that has contributed with their feedback, bug reports, and suggestions! Every single day we keep collecting input widely, continually improving Busy.org and making it more friendly to use. We are routinely impressed by how much our users help guide us in this process, so thanks to each and every one of you!

Over the past few months, we have had rich updates that have made Busy more friendly to existing and new users. Some updates include a better onboarding process for new users, more customization for your user profile, quick post creation, a referral program and we even integrated notifications for all manner of events!

Busy.org - Community Driven And Open Decision-Making Process

Meanwhile, our team is working on the Busy mid-long-term vision and strategy, with an open decision-making process that relies on the collective wisdom of the group.

Besides producing good decisions, one of the things we like best about the open process is the impact it has on the company culture. The open approach encourages interaction and discussion, and it creates a sense of community. People in the group feel like their opinions count, and they feel responsible to help make the right decisions. The open process encourages people to think about what is good for the organization, not just what is personally good for them, and this tends to produce a strong sense of alignment in the team. As many people and ideas are involved in the decision-making process as possible, and it uses a non-hierarchical approach where the answer will emerges from a discussion among the Busy Team and a selected group of informed people from the Steem/Busy community.

This is exactly our goal for the Busy organization - consensus on decision making. Our team can maintain efficiency by finding ways to gather input quickly, such as quick polls on our Busy Discord server. Deadlocks can be broken quickly (by our founders @fabien or @ekitcho) if consensus doesn't emerge immediately after discussion.
We’re very close to getting aligned on a broad, long-term vision and ambitious plan for Busy!

We’ve already seen a significant impact from our updates over the course of the past few months. The feedback that we have gotten so far has come with abundant praise. Thanks again to all our users. Based on our analytics, we have found our users to be very active, this has been both rewarding and motivational for us to continue to deliver the best user experience.

Work continues to make Busy more user-friendly, and we are moving faster than ever to do so. During the past few months, changes on this front include the ability to create a Quick Post, a better Onboarding Experience for new users, a Referral Program, Social Profiles, Image hosting with IPFS and Notifications for all users. Impact from these updates is readily apparent, and we appreciate and value your feedback along the way.


Here are some of the main features we been working on in the past few months:

Busy Image-Hosting Using IPFS

In the world of blockchain and cryptocurrency, decentralization is key. We decided to switch on our own distributed image hosting solution. It aims to be an alternative to our previous image hosting which was centralized and costly (Cloudinary).

It is based on IPFS - the InterPlanetary File System (same technology implemented on d.Tube, thanks @heimindanger for the support!) . It runs on the concept of peer to peer connections, which means that instead of hosting the information in a single location, our servers (Busy nodes), the data can be stored by everyone who wants to. When a picture is added on IPFS, it is given a hash: a 46 characters long digital fingerprint. No other file will have the same and if the same file is added twice then their hashes will be exactly the same (so it also removes duplicate!), it also means the picture can still be found on the network simply by knowing the hash, even if the app is down. You can find the hash at the end of a picture URL, just like below.

https://ipfs.busy.org/ipfs/QmbWRsQMnimSqVbpYh83dVwCS3DaSb3gpovfpCNrwU7eeV

Now uploaded images on busy.org are stored on IPFS. It's more decentralised, reliable and cheaper than what we used previously.

Notifications

You asked for them, and now they are here! Our most long-awaited and requested community feature has arrived - notifications have come to Busy!

Busy will now notify you all relevant activity or operations related to your account:

I want a STEEM BROWSER!

I'd like to have busy return correspondence. They have a block of text while posting that says they will provide a "like" for people who use "busy" as a tag.
Have not seen any evidence of them complying with their statement.

·

How you I can get it?

·

I thought more of a bandwidth broadband marketplace - something like Privatix wants to do, but here it would be intern service. Mostly for those who have steem blockchain bandwidth problem or (maybe I am looking more into the future now) we can share our broadband to enable others who can not do that - to use steem

10% of the rewards of the new member for a period of 30 days.

Most people joining will not make an impact in the 30 first days. It is too short time to make an earning, 365+ days and we have a better starting point. http://1broker.eu offers lifetime referal rewards and they been in biz since 2012.

Please make a better offer. It cost money to bring people to your front end, and 30 days are nothing.

PS: Referal programs are decentralized marketing.

·
·

i can again

·

I think so too... These things take time

·

the way all fingers are not equal is the same thing applied when it comes to luck.... but i still like your opinion

·

I can not agree more .

·

Hi @fyrstikken, That's true and for the same reason, majority quit. I've been helping a brand new minnow and it's been almost a month now. The reputation score is 46 but the earnings are small. It's a long route, I fully understand and have been conveying this to the minnow over and over again.

·

Anyway I love how all the platforms around Steem are growing! :)

·

I agree with @noisy, i don't agree with your comment. Steemit / busy doesn't need a referral program

·

Nice observation but if the are showed how to go about it, the will make an impact.

·

I agreed with your comment

·

I have just got my BTC reward from Coinsuper! This is my unique REFERRAL LINK. You will also get 0.001 BTC for every new completed Coinsuper user you refer. Share your link and allow all your family & friends to experience Bitcoin! This is your great chance to accumulate free BTC by being our advocate. https://share.coinsuper.shop/#/share?inviteCode=E86FO8

I love everything you did except... a referral program.

Busy now allows you to earn rewards by inviting your friends into the Busy ecosystem. Sending your referral link (http://busy.org/i/@your-username) will grant you 10% of the rewards of the new member for a period of 30 days. You can find your referral link on this page if you already logged on: https://busy.org/invite.

Referral links always are sending a wrong message to invited people. It is like saying implicitly "I will earn money thanks to you!".

Steem is already mind blowing for 99% people. Most of us didn't believe that Steem was legit, before we truly understand it. New people do not trust Steem by default, because Steem offers something they think is impossible. It is almost impossible to grasp from where those money came from...

A referral link will be yet another thing which will make Busy.org and Steem looking even more suspicious.

Whenever someone gives me a referral link (especially in crypto space) I am asking myself a question: "how this person is going to screw me over?"

Referral links are not needed

Steem is a blockchain-based social network. Every good social network is all about informal connections. Not technical connections like "referral links".

Steem already has much better a referral program - organic one

Do you remember the person who introduced you to bitcoin & crypto? Of course you do! Those kinds of events for many people become life changing events. You do not forget who made your live potentially better and for sure much more interesting.

This mean, that probably there is very high chance, that you feel very high sentiment to this person. And of course you are going to be biased when you will judge everything what this person will do, therefore people vote more often for people, which introduce them to Steem.

Also, if I invited someone to Steem and this person is successful, this person knows that I do not benefit from that directly, therefore my actions were from the beginning truly altruistic.

If I am a good and active Steemian there is very high chance, that this person will not only follow me, but also will support me by voting on my good posts.

Organic referral program is safer and more efficient to the network

But imagine a scenario that for any reason I become a bad actor of Steem. With organic referral program, a person who used to upvote my stuff will simply stop doing this. This person will have a chance to stop support me - and this is safer approach. I know that I need to behave in a good way to continue benefit from being a Steemian. This is safer to the network.

Also, this is more efficient for the network. Why? Because I need to still be active Steemian, to have a chance to be rewarded from my activity. If I will invite 1000 people and decide to abandon Steem, why I should still get rewards thanks to other people for next 30 days?

Referral links will be yet another reason to abandon Busy and move to Steemit

We all now, that you can execute the rules of referral program only with rewards beneficiers feature (please correct me if I am wrong), so that means, that referral program works only if a person will use Busy to publish a post.

That means, that to maximize a rewards people will be actually incentive to move to Steemit. It will not take long for someone to build a "helpful bot" which will publish a comments like "do you know that you can increase your earning by 10% simply by moving to Steemit from busy". Such bot will bring potentially useful message to people, so there is a high change, that actually those people will upvote those comments - so there is a big incentive to actually build such a bot.

If not a referral program, then what?

Well... you can create a lot of potentially much better features, which will benefit a users and system in the long run. For example:

Favorites Authors (exclusive following)

You already have great notification system - use it! When a new user setup an account, ask him which people he would like to add to "favorites authors". They you can suggest this with a message:

"It is not a bad idea, to add to favorites a person which invited you to Busy. Then you will be notified about all new entries of this person. Busy will also check what are favorites authors of this person and we will suggest them to you, so you will be able to decide whether you would like to follow them or maybe even add them to favorites authors as well."

Option to split rewards with someone

When someone write a post, you can ask this person, whether he would like to split a reward with someone. If that will be a first post, you can suggest that it is not a bad idea, to split a reward with someone, who invited you to Busy. This should be voluntary... and a people should be able to give any percentage to this person. So maybe someone will decide to give 20%, 50% or 100% from a post to someone.

With such a feature users will be incentivized to focus first on bringing big players to Steem and onboarding them as they were kings, because 50% or 100% from introduceyourself-post of some big star can be much much more than 10% from a lot of small fishes.

Other options

I am pretty sure, that there are planty of other better ways to increase acquisition of new users by Busy. It is also obvious that referral systems have a bad connotation and... for sure and not very innovative. I believe that team of Busy.org can do much better than that.

Sincerely, big fan of Busy.org,
@noisy

@noisy, thank you for your input, such a great feedback! I can't agree more!
I know your position on that since we discussed about it at Lisbon/Steemfest, and i share totally share your point of view.

As said in this post, I try to work in open decision-making with Busy and not take a dictatorship approach, and we actually discussed and debated about this feature with @fabien who is behind this idea/initiative and is advocating it.
He might be in a better position to answer you about this as I was totally against the referral idea for the exact same reasons you're pointing out.

image.png

This is a good example of a feature that was implemented without full consensus and where we were not aligned with @fabien. He was so enthusiastic about it, that we actually decided to let this be implemented and tested to gather more feedback like the one you just did. Really appreciate and hope it will convince more people that it's not a very good idea and open discussions with other argument for this feature, so we can improve/polish it or remove it.

Deadlocks can be broken quickly (by our founders @fabien or @ekitcho) if consensus doesn't emerge immediately after discussion.

This is a good reason for which i feel the need to be transparent so the community can see how we are doing things and try stuff, gather feedbacks and then improve/revert/ it.

November:

I think i've given all argument i had against this feature, and you add a lot @noisy.

@fabien actually decided to implement it anyway because he believes Busy/Steem will benefit from it (I don't), and need to test it and take feedbacks from the community. (And I think it's ok and a Beta is there for this specific reason: Testing things) I decided to let this go and see how the community and great minds from our ecosystem will react.

As far as I can tell @fabien is not alone on this position. I think Steemit.inc is also discussing about invite system and I remember @andrarchy gave some good argument for this, so the debate is still open. Happy to see you backing up my position ;)

It's not a pro/cons debate in my pov we can also find other ways to implement it and set different incentives or parameters to align short-run individual interests and long-run social (community/ecosystem) interests, as well as public perception...

·
·

👍🏼

·
·

It sounds like busy.org has much better features than Steemit.com (I am about to give it a good test run) and that in itself may be enough for people to stay. The referral is for only a month after all. New users will just be figuring things out by the end of their first month and they will then actually see an increase of their earnings as the referral goes away.

Don't get me wrong, I hear your concerns, just adding to the discussion with a perspective.

·
·
·

I can agree with that, seem if your not an already know person before coming to steem it, youll have a pretty hard time getting into the flow

·
·

It is an interesting problem. It's hard enough to get people to watch a TV show or go through a 20 second sign-up process on a site. I think some extra motivation for people out there recruiting would be nice, but it's tough with referrals. I don't see the gain really being there. Especially with a percentage system. Definitely something worth workshopping though, I think.

·
·

I sent my latest transmission using busy.org.

·

From a purely idealistic standpoint, I would agree with you. However, I'm very disappointed with the organic growth STEEM and steemit has had since the summer. We are approaching 1 million accounts created, which is a very low number considering that the blockchain is as revolutionary as it is and provides opportunities to people that are really unheard of elsewhere. My expectations were at least 5 times the current numbers with or without HF20.

While I agree that steemit inc should not themselves run a referral program for the reasons that you stated, I think it is good if Dapps and alternative STEEM front-ends tries this out. While you may very well be right in how it may result in adverse selection of people and thus declining quality, you might also be wrong. Having some different branches of the STEEM ecosystem try out something new for the rest to observe and take notes is something that I am all for, even when I am not convinced 100% of the idea.

·
·

in this interview

Watch @ned @sneak and @pkattera talk about the future of Steemit at the Austin meetup - video by Ruwan Perera

@pkattera hinted (8:40) that the onboarding processing will be more automated soon. I think it's near completion and needs just a bit patience.

·
·
·

Too bad they give us "soon" instead of clear timeframe.

·
·
·

I think that's a pretty big deal. People tend very strongly towards inaction, and anything that can smooth it out and make people wait less or do less is a great change.

·
·
·

I just heard about someone in Africa that spent since JAN waiting?
YES, this need to get fixed sooner than later and has been in waiting FAR TOO LONG, and I have made many posts about this fact as well, and will START TO DO SO AGAIN.

·
·

Good Best Great and Woooooooooooow

·
·

However, I'm very disappointed with the organic growth STEEM and steemit has had since the summer.

the question is... how many people are waiting for account activation. From my experience, a lot! This is what slows our growth.

Having some different branches of the STEEM ecosystem try out something new for the rest to observe and take notes is something that I am all for

I totally understand that. That's why I decided to also share my ideas for alternative approaches. Actually we can test multiple things at the same time.

·
·
·

the question is... how many people are waiting for account activation.

Less than 5 million. I wish we were at 10-20m.

Actually we can test multiple things at the same time.

This is exactly why I believe so strongly in STEEM and similar blockchain projects, the opportunity to have both benefit from decentralization that enables and allows open innovation which only occurs when many small agents are allowed to create what they think is the best solution, while at the same time having a "central" standard for data that is the blockchain which all apps relate to. But that's also why I felt the urge to write in support of them trying out this approach. While I agree with your points that the best on-boarding is those that are done organically by people being excited to share STEEM with others, I still see room for both. After all, PayPal used to literally pay their first new users and did aggressive marketing saying "sign up now and get 20$ worth of credits for free!" and look where they've gotten. Similarly, many successful StartUps that managed to ScaleUp, as well as list builders, did so by clever referral programs.

Let's both allow dapps to try different ways of obtaining new users while we at the core can foster and encourage what we see as a best-practice for onboarding.

·
·
·
·

Scale-by-Pay is a VERY dangerous move.
Also it brings even more toxic traffic than referrals.

·
·
·

I agreed with your comment

·
·

Agreed, although I don't think referrals will help all that much. The number 1 gameplan atm should be to make the sign-up and onboarding as quick and good as possible..

·
·
·

It is certainly true that while the existing bottle-neck exists, any referral program will be less effective. So yeah, that must be done first.

·
·
·
·

completely agreed! however once this is solved referrals will definitely be the way forward.

·
·
·
·
·

Excuse me, but I don’t get the point you want to say. Maybe it’s lack of my understanding or maybe a vague and paradox in your comment. I tend to the former probability ( lack of my understanding) 😊

·

I can't agree more.
Referrals bring much toxic traffic and is not a wise marketing choice

·
·

A really good point 👍🏼

·
·

how sure are you?

·
·
·
·

@bronevik i think you are right. Referrals will make it look like networking and people are very skeptical about networking.

·
  ·  2년 전

What did you expect when money is the incentive. The referral system is based on pure greed.
If a system is useful there is no need of a referral system.

·
  ·  2년 전

If really useful, there is no need paying someone else to promote it.
Referral links are just evil.

Not mention all the tracking by busy.org

See this screen of all the scripts on a random Busy post:
busy01a.png

·

Most people will just make it all about racking up many referrals who do not do anything, and others just join so there would be referrer leaves them alone. Nice contribution @noisy.

·

Perfect ! Here I am doing the same as you. You inspired me!good post:)

·

wow really such a gre idea busyorg.will be busy for sure.

·
·
·
·
·

Ahh ok thanks for the respond. @deditwing

·

I hate referrals too

·

Agreed

·
·

@dhouse

URGENT: @amirtheawesome account has been compromised, he's not awake now but he has reported to steem. please undelegate your Steem until he can get his active key restored from Steemit Inc.

·
·
·

oh geez.

·
·
·
·

it's not his fault, in fact he was smart about it, he had busy open and removed all the scammer's messages, upvotes, flags, and did drained all the VP so the scammer can't use it to hurt others.

·

I think referral program is very good, because a lot of people are very active in steemit but they still earn cents, I invited a lot of people in steemit and I keep inviting them, but I didn't earn nothing from that, even all those 3800 followers I have are mostly new people invited by and and I post everyday for more than 10 months, but keep earning cents, I like the idea of busy now because I will be happy to earn those 10% because I think I really deserve it, it's not my fault if whales think that I care only about money if my login is clixmoney, I just choosed it because the first website where I ever earned money was clixsense, and my youtube channel had the same name before I joined steemit and it's only a marketing plan. Even people who I invite more than 50% from them are not earning so much like me, they like this option that busy provide as well. I hope I will not be flaged because I am not agree with you, I am just saying my opinion, thanks.

·

The cost benefit ratio is off anyways. It's a referral program that, while the negative image effect's magnitude is debatable, definitely has the cons you mentioned. I think you could say, maybe if the referral system really drives people to put a lot of time and effort into getting people to join, maybe the negative image would be worth it (I still don't think so, but just for the sake of the argument). You are not going to have people going out and working hard to get people to join for this referral program.
The only people I can see who would benefit are those who have huge audiences, but if they use STEEM they already have an incentive that is far greater to get people to join, which is the potential upvotes of all of their fans.
I can see the cons being there, even if I can't see exactly how big they are. I don't see the pros. Maybe a different program would make them clear, but not this one.

·

Good post:)

@busy.org i did not even login on busy.org is it safe for use it are our private keys remain safe and confidential ?

·

If you saw that I down voted your comment. It was a mistake but I have made correction. Thanks

The first thing I love about busy.org is that I can be updated of the Market price, it's convenient. The Voting Power and Vote Value is also really helpful, I don't have to open another link to check these things. Well, this isn't new but I the more I use this site the more I appreciate how it helps me navigate efficiently.

Right after I posted my blog today, I noticed some pop-ups on the left screen of my lappy and I was excited to see the comments, pop-up comments, the new followers... amazing! wahhh this is really exciting!

and oh now I didn't realise that I can sort the comments from the best, newest, oldest, and the reputation, cool!

I love all the new updates! I have to explore these new features. Thanks a lot for all the hard work you guys put into. Will share this update to my steemian friends.

More power!

As you may know I never use @utopian-io to upvote anything else than contributions submitted in Utopian.io. I have to say the value you are bringing to the STEEM blockchain and to Utopian.io (which is a fork of Busy.org) is immense and I am glad to give you the first 100% Utopian upvote in a while. Enjoy.

·

thank you very much for your support! Really appreciate and hope it will help Utopian as well

·

Perfect 👌! Here I am doing the same as you. You inspired me! And you are absolutely bright in every evaluated word you mentioned about busy.org

·
·

busy.org is very interesting to develop steemit.com

·
·
·
·
·
·
·

❤️😊👍🏼

·
·
·
·
·

Thank you, @elear.
You speak for the whole community!

I am glad to give you the first 100% Utopian upvote in a while. Enjoy.

A well-deserved upvote, indeed. I hope that other whales and project managers would follow your lead too. Supporting busy.org benefits us all. Busy.org is doing a fantastic job in improving the front end. I have switched to busy.org for some time, and I am more than satisfied.


BTW, I have just voted for @busy.witness as a witness, and I invite everyone to do the same.

·

Can steemit.com switch to the busy UI also ? :)

·
·
·

Just want to say you got a cool domain name.. there.. Busy.org

I am very happy to see these updates because many of us may be able to use Steem on busy.org now without ever needing to visit steemit.com! Rewriting links, built in prices, the dtube player, just wow!

Thank you to the busy team for all that you do to build the Steem blockchain and give us an amazing alternative to steemit.com to browse our blockchain!

Resteeming!

·

Well ! So I am waiting for another amazing educational video by the talented teacher @jerrybanfield about @busy.org ...... waaaaaaaaiting , huh lol

·

And Busy might be better than Steemit, mostly because of Dtube player feature. But hope that motivates Steemit and others to try to compete more too and that is good like Apple versus Microsoft. Hope Steemit can step up their game. I'm still using Steemit, mostly, but may reconsider in a few months or maybe sooner if Busy continues to improve faster than Steemit.

·

HAVE TO LOVE the tube player embedded!

I already love Busy and am stoked to see continued innovation and progress!

·

Thank you for your support!

·
·

I am happy to and its easy to support what is the most functional app on the Steem Blockchain!

Thank you for what you do and keep up the constant evolution!

∞§∞Full Steem Ahead∞§∞

I thought I would never see notifications on any steem frontend.
and here they are!

Thanks, busy, thanks a lot!

·

Yep .. finally .. here we go 😘

·
·

Good work with the Busy Dtube Player feature. Love it.

Why dont you sleep for more upvoting power @busy.org ?

Busy just keeps getting better and better.

I don't know what I'd do without the Drafts function.

·

Definitely a very useful feature !

looks better and better ! Keep going on...

It may make more sense for you to use the gateway.ipfs.io URL for IPFS-available content, because then people who are using a local ipfs node and a browser-url-rewriting-extension to auto-rewrite gateway.ipfs.io to appropriate localhost HTTP requests (to actually use the p2p net to fetch instead of HTTP) will be fetching the content natively.

Either that, or get ipfs.busy.org listed in the popular IPFS url-rewriter extensions, so that it rewrites those URLs too.

·

Right! Good catch, we will take a look about that.

·

Your a Smart MOFO. Has anyone ever told you that? Just watched the d.tube videos you @pkattera and @ned. Sounds like you guys have a fun job. Sort of wish I had something to bring to the table aside from conceptually. Totally regret not learning coding. Totally sucks having ideas without the means to put them into tangible/utilizable ideas.

Thank you busy.org for your support. I love busy.org.

·

I love it too . Esp. For their constant dedicated updates 😎

Thank you for the great work. You have come a long way and brought huge improvements. Busy became my favourite app since I was allowed to join Busy for the first time. You make Busy better every day. Well done. Looking forward to what we can await in the future. 👏👏

This dedicated team of busy.org is really amazing.

I have a question considering busy.pay account. How does it work, what threshold you need to pass to be eligible to get a busy.pay vote? Where can I check what is my status?

If one is close to the threshold he will still recieve a small busy.org vote, but there is a huge difference between 10cents and 10$, can you make that gap more realistic, for people close to the treshold give them busy.pay upvote with lower vote percentage, busy.org vote is just a mirrage, a simbolic vote, while busy.pay is a considerable big upvote. System would seem more fair if you reduce the huge gap between the two.

For people in charge you must have noticed that the bot pays any type of content the same, it could be a simple one picture post or a great post, it always gets the same considerable upvote. That system can be farmed, it can be abused, do you plan to keep it like it is, or will you make some changes?
(upvoted for visibility)

Very Good querry really about busy.pay ... I share and vote for your querry you adress here.

Great post! I'll be looking forward to experiencing this first hand!

Bravo à toute l'équipe de @busy.org pour ce travail phénoménal. Busy est devenu tellement sympa à utiliser que je me demande pourquoi les gens utilisent encore steemit. Votre travail est en tout cas apprécié par de nombreux utilisateur dont moi en premier. Merci pour votre investissement.

·

Merci pour le soutien!

It is very exciting to know about all these amazing features which @busy.org brings time and again.

I would like to thank all the @busy team for their contributions.

WOW! busy,org is really fast evolving! this is good for steemians and will somehow make steem rise above from all other cryptos'. thumbs up for the great work!

·

Absolutely !

I can’t imagine if you @busy.org continue at such amazing innovation and dedication, what. In the world your service after few years would look like !!!

Best service and best Dapp ever @bysy.org 👍🏼❤️

Great update @busy.org, thanks for sharing the good news!

Looking great! I will check out. Just curious how my Steem Power on Steemit will be affected. Do I have voting weight at both platforms or do I have to buy in separately to have voting weight at busy.org? Thanks for the post!

Great!

This is great - I Love Busy.org and try to post once a day with the Busy Tag. I will definitely be sending friends your way. UpVoted. Great work.

Doff my hat @busy.org developers and community 🌷

Thank you for the great work. You have come a long way and brought huge improvements. Well done. Looking forward to what we can await in the future.

·

Agree 100% ✅

This is really a great achievement by busy.com
I believe the referral system will help bring more people into the platform

Now if you could somehow implement post scheduling I will love you forever. Does Busy.org skim some off the top from people's payouts or something?

edit: ok wow, saving drafts and publishing them later is halfway there to actual scheduling. Looking real nice, busy.org!

@busy, After your new update, I'm unable to use search option, plus, It got very slow. Please fix this bug ASAP!

  1. Are you still lacking night mode, or is it just my misfortune to not find it?
  2. Do you charge fees out of author rewards?
  3. Is it true that you give your curation rewards to authors?
  4. If STINC will be taken down permanently, will steemconnect remain?
  5. If STINC will be taken down permanently, will busy.org remain usable only for those whom registered before?

i like this update very much. Thanks a lot @busy.org

great job

New users within 30 days do not have not only SP, but also general knowledge about the platform. This referral program is very poorly thought out.

·

All correctly said, so and there is

Great updates! especially the improved notifications and the market price widget :-D

Are you guys planning to release a night mode anytime soon? I find myself returning to steemit sometimes because when my eyes are tired, i can't handle that much white >.<

·

Dark theme is on the to do list of Busy team.

·

I second the suggestion of adding a dark or night mode theme. That's one of the only key features that is missing.

great team, excellent plans and features
thanks guys for offering us more features to shine in steemit. In busy i trust
keep doing good work for us.
Any plans for programming a post to feature at a future time. eg like you post and set timing for the post to publish later say next hour, day or week?

I love you Busy! if you could add another option "Scheduled posts" it would be great. We are not always online to post our lovely articles, so by having this option you can save us a lot of time, thanks! :)

IPFS is so big step for scaling, and there are many new features shipped to us quickly.

This made me thinking I should decentralize my love what is owned by a single woman now again. :D
At least half of my love goes to the team! :) They treat me better then the woman I want. XD

·

Thank you for the love! Your wife will get jealous :D

And I am still here with new features

New button on Blog feed gives you chance to select which your feed you want to select. As a category. Now I can find much quicker my posts. It is more organized that way. And organized is a way to go!

Favourite button is for your best posts. As a showroom for the whalles. Wuhuuuuu great feature

DQmPpJApDHqUM8dEgeUreK19DSRxJxJcNUvcGxWM2gT4nQQ.jpeg

Busy has become the go-to destination for Steem Blockchain posting. Congrats on the new release.
And that custom signature is something I've been waiting for. :-D
Happy Days!

May I ask if there is a toggle night mode in busy.org? If there is none may I suggest if you could provide please thanks...

full information is very important so refferal link is also required

Great! But, no night mode no busy. Sorry.

Thats a great news!

Within a few days of joining Steemit and its wonderful community (my fellow Steemians are truly amazing), I stumbled upon Busy, and loved it. My original reason for preferencing Busy over Steemit was the convenience of having multiple Drafts (as a student I often find myself having to stop in the middle of writing, and being able to save several different drafts is amazing), but this platform has become much more than that now.

Notifications, An amazing feature that (in my opinion) is a must-have.

Market Price Widget isn't necessary but is truly convenient

The DTube Player is game-changing.

The Custom Signature, a great feature (although I haven't really tried to get its full potential out of it).

·

yes thankyou frend

wow great initiatives sir

I think introducing IPFS based storage will be a big thing, does it speed up the process a bit.My issue with busy.org always had been the speed

A lot of improvement made! Nice!

my new favorite steem posting site :)

I like the sounds of the notification feature good job @busy.org.

Now with IPFS busy got a alot of respect. First time i used busy i said so what? It was quite the same of steemit with couple of design updates but now... Most of the requirements in one place and i am happy to use. Yet i do desire to see couple of things more but i am sure you guys thought about those before than me. Congratz and fully support!!

Good luck guys! tipuvote!

Congrats, you made the @dtube #steemitminute for today!

Why is that the post is earning so much but I am not earning even pennies

·

Bots. Also the account of a huge app that is used by many.

·
·

thank you for replying

One thing I like much about Busy is the impression of professionalism (simplicity yet elegant design). Please fix your crappy text editor, add a plugin for Similar Posts just below every published article similar to most WordPress sites (using tags as metric of categorization), and enable an optional dark mode theme - I will no longer look back to Steemit.

I love busy.org very much. It is so user friendly and especially, with those updates it is even better. It can help lots of newcomers to start posting easily and will attract lots of people on the Steem Blockchain. Simplicity is genuine like Einstein said.

Referral links are also very motivational for the actual members to promote #busy and Steemit, plus get more rewards.

I love the notifications feature that you have added

I loved and appreciate these awesome updates @busy.org
I'm a regular poster on busy.org so i'm glad to have these changes.

May know if the requirements to get vote from the busy.org bot also has changed? I'm not getting vote from the bot anymore lately :'(

Busy used to pay the authors when using their platform, doesn't seem the case anymore.

  ·  2년 전

I definitely think @busy.org has one of the better interface designs, and overall experience on the steem blockchain.

The addition of IPFS and the integration of an in-app DTUBE player are very welcomed, and further validate my aforementioned opinion.

@busy.org is the most completed platform on steemit . I will use every time I post something .

·

and you are the most beautifull thing ive seen all day! :) ;p

Glad to see all the improvements

another great platform

I want to ask: Send my referral link to somewhere to receive a 10 percent reward

新版本功能更强大,也更新颖。
但是我想给你们一些建议:
upvote和downvote靠的太近,容易误操作!IMG_20180324_120154.jpg
分开一点可能更好!

·

english translation ? :) im sure I agree with you, I just dont understand you yet! :D

·
·

sorry,my English is very badly.
you can separate the buttons a little bit.
prevent error performance.

·
·
·

yeah, I agree, important upgrade!

this is really good feature

Great post very informative 8 }

As much as buys.org is making the Steem social network a much more polished experience, there are underlying doubts about the stability of the Steem blockchain that seems to be a greater concern. For example, freewallet.org not longer supports Steem (claiming the Steem blockchain is unstable). Is this an actual concern that needs to be looked into before we think about improving the user interface further? Is Steem due for a fork at some stage, and would it help to create confidence in the users and move the price in the right direction?

Waooo its amazing information! But i can access your point of view completely that its is real? Infact ! The most important thing is that clearity of point

I resteemit to spread the news. Thank you 😊

I've been using the @busy app starting from the first time I opened this account, because it's just busy that gives me support for the spirit

Anyone else put "busy" as a tag per Busy's suggestion, stating they would give a like? I did that a few times with no "likes". Seems pretty scammy to me. All it does is promote "them" at the expense of one of our tags.

I want a STEEM BROWSER

I used the "busy" tag per your suggestion that you would "like" it. Is there some sort of timeframe that is supposed to happen in?

GOOD BEST GREAT SIR AND WOOOOOW

Good news sir and woooooooooooow

Selamat sore... tolong bantu saya perbaiki kenapa saya tidak bisa mengirimkan postingan ke @busy.orng. terimakasih

Congratz to the whole busy team ;)

I'm like it your posting

Can someone explain where to See the private messaging option in busy.org ? Thanks!
Another thing:
The "Block this user" option seems non-operable, not working for me.

Anyone know a way to actually block users from Downvoting / flagging your new Posts? I have a problem with some Flagger trolls following my account and Flagging / downvoting my posts from hate and sabotage point of view!
Thanks if you can help me anyone!

-kongen, Denmark

Congratulations on 1k$ post :)

interesting article thanks for the information

Allah Bereket versin 1,023 $ iyiymiş.

It would be nice if Busy would be more usable over low speed connections.
It's impossible to comment
hardly possible to upvote
re-blog sometimes works. (about 50% fails, so it's always a wild guess is anything works)

Woew ... now busy.org is very cool, I just tried it earlier. My friend who has been playing steemit in the busy.org upgrade the page very much different from the current one. The display is now more elegant and easy to understand as a new user of steemit. thanks to all the busy.org team who have worked hard for the progress of busy.org

busy same with steemit or twitter?right?

just voted, yes you guys are the best
I don't use steemit anymore just you guys

I was curious about quick post, I was thinking It for Twitter like post.I saved posts on mobile, when I opened on desktop the posts saved didn't appear

·

Do you mean saved as draft?

·
·

No, you Will see three horizontal dots icon near to comment icon, when you click it you will find save post for bookmark

·
·
·

I've just tested bookmarks on mobile and PC and it works fine for me.

Hello :)
I just noticed that the busy tag doesn't work for upvotes anymore, is this a permanent change?

I love busy.org .

Does this mean you can earn two times? posting here and there?

Waow!!! I was waiting for this.. nice to have it back..!!! @busy.org

@busy.org son excelentes noticias para la plataforma. La he usado pero ultimamente no he podido. Me gusta el reproductor de videos

Always follow busy.org. thanks for sharing

Hi, lads! Check out my article if you want to increase upvotes and followers: https://steemit.com/steemit/@profit-shooter/how-to-increase-upvotes-and-followers-on-steemit-com

thank you for new amazing features.

really very nice your post(Busy.org) thanks

thank you for share .&I'm so very glad I found the Busy platform, I love it

I like Busy. Here it is more convenient for me to write a post, upload images and view the news. I like that the article is automatically saved when I work on it. I recently lost power in the middle of my letter. I was very worried that the written text was lost. But when I turned on the computer again, everything was safe and I just continued to work. Of course I really appreciate the extra support from Busy. And the only wish I have at the moment is the ability of the search string in the graph are Followed and Follow.

Amazing post,,,

Good post
Informasion update

wow that is a great news!

It would be great if you make an android app for this ..it will revolutionalize every thing here ..

Busy has been good to us @mammasitta
Thank you!

I absolutely love the notifications and search function. On steemit, I can't use the search function because it is from Google and I am located in China. Google is blocked here. It is great to have a search function on busy that I can actually use!

My mind is brought from STEEM Blockchain and Utopian.io (which is a fork of Busy.org).

This is cool, new to me. Can't wait to explore the platform. More grace to your elbow

Busy bees, unite 🙌

I'm an avid user of Busy.org and I think it is one of the best, if not the best project on the blockchain. Thanks for all the hard work. I've already noticed all the new features such as instant notifications and so on.

Thanks again.
