Progress, Further Improvements, More Ideas!
Another Big Week for @steem-ua, and another Update Post was needed, indeed!
In this post:
- A few more words on @steem-ua delegations
- Invitation to Curators & Curation Guilds
- New Features being implemented
Let's dive right in!
A few more words on @steem-ua delegations
As we progress more and more, so do the delegations. At the time of writing this, things are looking like this:
|Rank||Delegatee||Number of Delegators||Delegated SP|
... Not bad, for only being "live" for 19 days! Still, we hope for many more accounts to join the current 915 @steem-ua delegators, and every delegation - be it 25 SP or 25 million SP (one can hope!) - is welcome!
In my "Scipio Post" @steem-ua, Let's UNITE: My Open Letter to All Accounts, I've tried to explain what the benefits are, for each and every account, to delegate to @steem-ua. And as I'm trying to read (and respond, when possible) all posts & comments regarding UA / steem-ua, I came around a few (I've resteemed it even for transparency) that might have not fully grasped the true meaning of what I've been trying to express. SO let me try again:
for planktons & minnows: delegating 25 SP, 50 SP, 100 SP or 250 SP to @steem-ua offers you (on average at least) a far better ROI (return on investment) than 10 * 7 * 100% self-voting. What we are trying to do, is incentivise high-quality posting, say once every day (because publishing quality content takes some time), networking with other Steemians (either on Steem itself, or via Discord for example), not leaving the platform but staying active and over time grow your account at a healthy pace, and to have fun along the way!
for dolphins & orcas: for those that (can afford to) delegate 5,000 SP or more we have our "high-SP Sponsor Reward Program". You could check our account https://email@example.com to see how it works, and if you have any questions, DM me for more info about it!
Now, I'm quite aware that - in terms of direct ROI -, there are delegation / investment alternatives on the Steem blockchain that will provide you with more immediate returns on your investment. But still, I'd like you to consider delegating whole-heartedly to @steem-ua nonetheless. By doing so, you are helping with keeping our mission in tact to improve plankton & minnow user retention rates, because with your help delegating to @steem-ua remains more rewarding to them than self-voting.
for whales: some of you might be interested in increasing the value of your crypto holdings, some of you want the Steem Ecosystem to get better and better for each and everyone of us, there might be other motives that apply to you and that I didn't mention yet (here, or elsewhere). But please consider delegating to @steem-ua (our stats on https://steemworld.org/@steem-ua speak for themselves, hopefully) as a long term investment in yourself, the entire platform, and maybe even the world of crypto as a whole... In case you want to chat, feel free to contact me via DMs.
I never have any expectations from others and I only expect from GOOD from myself. Most people are focused on short term ROI and I'm focused on ROX (Return of Multiples).
ROX - Return of Multiples. That's being On The Same Page, @nathanmars : you rock!
Invitation to Curators & Curation Guilds
Are you aware already about the existence of the
UA Scout Role on our Discord, about our account @ua-scout , and how you can use that account yourself to "nominate" top-notch, new (or poor / not-yet-well-established) accounts for a (small) @steem-ua LoveVote? While talking to @hanshotfirst just shortly before, we were discussing mechanisms on how to involve & reward new accounts, not yet acquianted with the "Steem-UA Movement" (or simply not able to delegate); especially accounts that already provided some good Posting Efforts but were still struggling to get noticed and rewarded at some degree. So, as a solution, we have implemented the @ua-scout account, to be used by human curators on the watch for Steem Talent. Multiple
UA Scouts are already using that account to upvote interesting content (with a tiny vote worth), but the @steem-ua Bot "listens" to those nomination votes, does some computing (yes, some more math stuff going on there!) and decides to upvote (some of) the nominations itself.
PS: we also have a section of "Partner Communities" on our Discord, that you can use to invite people to, announce cool stuff, etc. etc.!
New Features being implemented
We're always looking to improve further and further, we have a lot of ideas that are "on the list" already or being implemented right now, and we're open to any other suggestions to further improve our Algorithmic Curation Program. To give you a primer on what's coming shortly:
Delegator Settings Page: slowly but steadily, we are adding more features to our website https://steem-ua.com/
One of those new (forthcoming) features is the "Delegator Settings Page". As I've had personal contact with multiple delegators / sponsors, I've noticed some like to receive ROI (which is perfectly fine with me), while others only delegate / sponsor to support us, and prefer to decline any rewards / ROI. As you can imagine, while we grow, that can be pretty labor-intensive to manually manage (on occasional human error is no exception, and if you noticed that something went wrong, then plese do contact me). The Delegator Settings Page aims to automate this. We'd like you to be able to simply log in, set whether you like to (or not) receive upvotes on your content (via the Algorithmic Curation Program), same with the high-SP Sponsor Rewards Program, and if you do, whether you want to authorize @steem-ua.pay to generate your Sponsor Rewards or like to set (or for us to create) an alt account for that.
More Stats & Data: I like numbers (duhhh!) and charts and data.
Already we provide some insights on https://steem-ua.com/stats , but I want to add a boatload of more (interactive) charts, to get more useful insights.
Data Sharing via UA-API:
If you are or know @steemchiller , could you please (let him) contact me via DM? I really Love https://steemworld.org/ and I'd personally love to see the metric
UA_Accountintegrated for every account on your website! Your site rocks! Let's make it rock some more!
Even better SmartComments:
Presentation matters. More insights matter. And as I've (briefly) talked about with @uwelang (and others), our SmartComments Module already provides some value but I want to upgrade it to prove a lot of value. It's a continuous WiP (Work in Progress), but my goal with the SmartComments is to "coach" all accounts on how to improve their post visibility, user engagement, and - pretty important to most - their earnings.
That's all for now Folks!
UA, Steem User Authority: Use Your Influence!
@steem-ua Algorithmic Curation & Upvote Program:
|SP Delegation||Sponsor Benefits & Upvote Frequency|
|25 SP||max. 1 @steem-ua upvote per week|
|50 SP||max. 2 @steem-ua upvotes per week|
|100 SP||max. 4 @steem-ua upvotes per week|
|250 SP||max. 7 @steem-ua upvotes per week|
|>= 5,000 SP||Stake-Based Sponsor Rewards + max. 7 @steem-ua upvotes per week|
PS1: delegation requirements could be subject to change, we'll then post about that prior to changes being applied.
PS2: @steem-ua reserves the right to reject upvoting accounts demonstrating abusive behavior.
