Dear Steemians and Steevians,
In our last post we informed you about the Steeve Upvote Program. The goal is to reward good content discovered thanks to the unique combination of Steeve’s AI-based recommendations and manual curation by the community of Steeve users.
We would like to announce that SteeveBot has just started operating!
How Are Post Selected?
Aggregating opinions of Steeve community and selecting posts which are worth the upvote is a hard task. It would be simple to look just at the number of votes but we know well that the upvotes are only a fraction of the activity people do on Steem. There are also comments, resteems, and ratings (available on Steeve only). Combining these into one number that reflects the overall engagement on a post will be an ongoing task. We will be further refining it as we learn more about the activity and preferences of our users. So these are the current rules according to which SteeveBot is giving its upvotes:Eligible posts
- Main posts only.
- Created between 3 and 6.5 days ago.
- Sorted by engagement.
- Based on votes, comments, resteems, ratings and the number of views.
- Just the last action from every user counts.
- Number of views = The number of times the post has been actually clicked and opened, divided by how many times the post was shown to the user - on feed or in the explore section
- All the scores are summed up into one number: the engagement score.
New posts need to gather some traction before it can be decided whether they are worth the vote. Also, we want to give you, the curators, enough time to discover all the hidden gems ;) That’s why SteeveBot considers posts at least 3 days old. The 6.5 days is there because the last 12 hours before post’s payout only downvotes are allowed by the blockchain due to security reasons.
Only one - the last one - action is taken from each user because some actions can be taken more than once - for example comments or viewing posts. In this case, it’s a prevention of abuse. But you can also change the value of your vote and rating. So the last action should reflect the user’s opinion the best.
All eligible posts are ranked by their engagement score. The best post is selected and upvoted every 2.4 hours, the time necessary for the voting power to recover to 100%.
In future when the number of highly engaged posts and the dollar value of SteeveBot’s vote increase, we will be able to divide the vote and reward more posts.
