Curangel is downvoting again

6개월 전
About three months ago, we stopped downvoting without announcement. The way the old system was set up required a lot of management, and being this involved in something which isn't fun but an ugly necessity wasn't doable on a long term basis.

The script was changed from having to use all of its downvote power all the time to a more flexible approach, which also benefits the (de-)curators as they can set an approximate limit on the downvote strength, and is functional again.

One issue remains, and that's the accidental overdownvotes. Due to the trail being quite big and dynamic, it's not possible to exactly calculate what the assigned reward will be after the downvotes happened. I'm trying to keep it updated, and if you have some significant weight and decide to join or leave the trail a notice before (in the comments of a @curangel post, or by email to pharesim - check my witness link) would be appreciated a lot.

There is no solution to it, downvote values will vary and the result of the downvotes will not always reflect the intent of the curator. It's part of the game though, there are no guaranteed rewards, and we simply gamify a bit more. If someone's hit "by accident" so be it, eat it up and move on. This is the last time a downvote will be commented. Get back here for future reference.

That's it. No explanations, no motivational speeches, no pointing fingers. Just a FYI.

Thank you for your interest in the Curangel project! If you want to help us supporting a wide range of valuable community members and at the same time receive a share of the generated curation rewards, consider sending us a delegation. By doing so, you will also receive the possibility to help us move rewards from overrated posts back to the pool.

Sounds good 👍🏿

I wasn’t aware of the downvoting issue as my involvement is simply finding and nominating great posts to upvote.

Carry on and all hail the curation angels.

Nice! Im still on the dv trail but outta from the upvote trail😊 would you please get me out from the blacklist @pharesim 😉 I found better way to support this project.. instead of joining the trail, I can just delegate some SP😊 Thanks and Great Job😉


Of course! Done =)


Thaaannk youu👐

Good to hear this. There are still plenty of accounts milking Steem and giving nothing back. No doubt some will complain about being victims when they knew exactly what they were doing. I have a few people following my own downvote trail and sometimes they more than cancel out post rewards. I try to judge what is necessary to just zero them. Some of them are exploiting tribe tokens too.
