🤘 The @abusereports ban has been lifted - cuddling continues with extra ooomph! 😻

Crisis averted!

Thanks to @abusereports for "un-listing" me!

After a brief exchange on steem.chat I've been "permitted" to continue.
I am un-muted again and to celebrate this small victory of fluffyness...

Not so Quick - An Update on the Situation:

all comments and posts are still receiving immediate automated flags
@cuddlekitten will remain muted to avoid further reputation damage.

Cuddles will be almost twice as strong!

that should also help to distinguish these cuddles from actual spam
unfortunately that also means cuddles will be going out less frequently

onwards to more cuddles!

and to be clear: cuddles = upvotes
can upvotes be spam?!

 

meow!

Seems you've made it out alive and well after all!

Cheers to more cuddles!

heh... I was hoping for a Martini but your proud signature smile does speak equally well.

I am glad you have your voice back!

You have been flagged for being an abuser! Stop your naughty actions! Stupid spammer!

·

ummm... okkkay... I guess the black-listing is still in effect?!

·
·

I would usually avoid purchasing an upvote for a post like this, but it was neccessary to "un-hide" this post after the auto-flag greyed it out.

Maybe you should add a sentence explaining that a cuddle from the kitten equals an upvote so people don't think you're spamming them.
something fun like "cuddle attack! you've been given some luuurve by the cuddle kitten in the form of an upvote"
or I dunno. smth like that ?
someone might flag you again otherwise, if your comment only consists of a gif and the person doesn't check who upvoted them. (because lazy idiots) XD

·

Yeah and he might also add a quote taken from catfacts-API here:
https://catfact.ninja/fact
or something like this....

Hi Jill, thanks for the feedback and support!

I really love the non-verbose nature of the kitten's interactions and she actually hasn't received any negative feedback so far. I am still unsure how she got blacklisted to begin with, a single flag by an irritated user would have been fine, legit and totally acceptable... as a matter of fact, the kitten understands a flag and will never comment or vote the flagging user again.

The black-listing and auto flagging is a different story, but gladly the kitten has been getting a lot of positive support during this short crisis and upon closer inspection of the situation her ban was lifted without much fuzz.

In the end all is good and I'll have to file this under well-intended-policing-getting-out-of-hand!

I'm happy that it was resolved :)
Go @cuddlekitten!

Yay!!!! Everybody loves a cuddlekitten!!!

As I said on the other post, I hope it's resolved and you can go about giving out cuddles without fear!

·

Yeap, everything is hunky-dory again... let's hope it stays like this. cuddles FTW!

This post is past payout. Where would I upvote?

·
  ·  작년

pick a random recent comment by the kitten and drop a vote on it...

if you don't want to interfere with comments on a random post, you'd have to make posts under #cats and hope she randomly visits you when she goes looking for new friends on her own... but that actually doesn't happen too often.

·
·

Okay thanks :)

Yay, @cuddlekitten - I'm certainly glad you've survived your ordeal! Cuddle onward and upward!

How do I get some cuddles :)

If other Steemians have been added to the list, does anyone know how to get off of it? Do they eventually automatically drop off?

Cuddle back :)

Hi @sequentialvibe, I'll be happy to elaborate.

Technically you already qualify for receiving cuddles.

On the surface level it works like this:

  • you cuddle (upvote) the kitten - it gives you a sympathy score based on your upvote size
  • she'll add your score to her "memories" and rank you against her other cuddle buddies accordingly
  • whenever the kitten's VP is higher than x% (currently 85), she'll randomly pick a cuddlebuddy from her memory (the higher your ranking the bigger your random chance of being selected)
  • cuddles are delivered to the most recent comment or post of the selected user (only if it's an actual post will she leave a comment herself)

But, there's more:

  • everytime the kitten cuddles you she'll deduct a certain percentage off your ranking-score
  • the score will never actually go to zero - so technically you will never drop off the list but your chances of receiving cuddles will get infinitely smaller with time unless you cuddle back every once in a while
  • to get "off" the list, all you have to do is flag the kitten once, she'll then remember the negative ranking score and won't bug you again

And there's even more:

  • the kitten will analyse your voting behavior to see if you have a decent voting diversity and not too much self-voting. The higher your self voting quota is - the faster your "ranking-score" decreases and the weaker your received cuddles will be
  • If you upvote a post or comment by the kitten and then reply to it, she'll engage in rudimentary interaction and answer to let you know how she feels about your interaction


In all honesty, you probably won't get too much out of those cuddles as they are reduced proportionally by the 69% self-voting quota on your account.

·
·

Ah I see. I self vote so I'm probably un-cuddleable lol

·
·
·
  ·  작년

nah... you're fine ;) your quota is in a totally reasonable range with 15%

http://steemreports.com/outgoing-votes-info/?account=omitaylor&days=14

You'll only see a minor deduction in cuddle-intensity and you'll fall-off the likeability ranking in an almost regular fashion.

Anything below 20% is totally fine... If you had over 80% the kitten would ignore you by default... in between there's a a progressive "penalty" in terms of reduced cuddling ;)

Yeah, I'll probably upvote my own posts until I'm well powered up. And since I just heard about the .02 dust vote threshold, probably more- since I wouldn't want to waste my friend's voting power with their small votes. It'll be like them going half on a coffee for me.

Perhaps it's able to be offset by 1:10 ratio of other voting. If I increase my voting for myself, I'll increase other voting too. That's a lot of voting lol!

Well if the kittys love me for now, that's awesome. I'm so upset about the news of the dust vote. Smh. Ah well. If I ever get blacklisted, I'll totally understand and the love shall be unrequited limmerance on my behalf.

Yeah... the dust threshold being at 2ct was new to me too... I always thought less than 0.01 wasn't paid out (e.g. 0.005SBD)... but the 2ct mark is a disappointment! I'll retune the kittens in the next few days so their votes don't go to waste anymore (they currently target the 0.01 per vote - i'll up that to 0.02 and decrease their frequency accordingly)

·
·

Thanks that's awesome!

@fraenk could you remove C-DdLE'5 paw prints from this post? c-DDLe'5 has been a great cat, but my new born is allergic and I'm afraid we're going to have to give the feline back : (

Also, that post in particular was just inundated with one bot after another and it's changed my perception on bots all together. I ask you via this post, because I'd much rather not use the flag button.

I like your bot, but I'm hoping that you can remove me from the list. In this case, family has to come first. If you can do that and simply upvote this comment, then i'll come back to delete the comment.

Thank you!

Hi, I have removed the comment on your post and added your username to the global blacklist for all the kitten-bots. You should not be bothered again, sorry to hear your newborn is struggling with allergies and I hope my kitten's appearance didn't cause too much discomfort.

If you can do that and simply upvote this comment, then i'll come back to delete the comment.

Since I've upvoted and replied, you cannot "delete" this comment anymore... you could only "edit" the content... which would make my reply totally ridiculous :P So I'll appreciate if you leave the comment as is.

Steem-on!

P.S.: I wasn't sure if you'd want me to cancel the upvotes as well, so I've left it in place, if you want I can of course also undo the kitten's upvote, just let me know.

·

As far as the upvotes, that's entirely up
to you @fraenk. Thx again for your help!
I'm going to miss him, c-ddles was the
best doggone cat in the west. Peace!

Kitten's gonna miss you, too! You've been a cuddlefriend for a while, the fond memories of when she met you for the first time will remain with her for good, but she appreciates your change of mind and wishes you all the best ;)

I'll leave the upvote in place then.

·

One last thing, tell her...

I just saw this and although it’s from last year, I’m really glad the flag has been removed from the flagbot! Because I absolutely love your kitten cuddles, as do my cats! Also, I appreciate your sweet comments!

Hope everything is alright since then?

I like your little cats as response and I am happy that you are unmuted!
Be cuddled :)
