Trending: Does It Matter?Can We Fix It?

This will be little different compared to anything I have ever posted. When I am talking about "Trending" , I specifically mean the

Comments 26

The main trending page is always going to be a work in progress. This is definitely a step in the right direction. I want to thank all involved in helping to make this happen.

You are welcome. We try to do our best.

Also my goal is to answer to every comment as much as my time permits. More I comment, more downvote I will get and more I will drain the DV mana of the spammers. Its a win-win situation.

Thanks for being an ardent supporter! While trending is important from a landing page perspective, I can't stress enough what I feel are the peripheral benefits. These include providing an aspirational target for potential authors, as well as driving up overall quality on the platform. This makes trending a tool for raising the bar whether people frequent it or not, based on reward incentives alone.

Imagine being dumb enough to think this will accomplish anything. I only have pity for you @flysky and @dobartim. For whatever reason, the universe decided to give you double-digit IQs. Who am I to question its will?

Double digit when added together

I think that's within the margin of error of being zero!

Now what? @flysky?

Solid point about displaying the standard to aspire to to get your name In lights, long may it continue.

Absolutely Josh. Our cumulative goal is to make this platform where people will be afraid to do shitposting. Because there will always be someone watching. In terms of resources, more we can pull better it is for the platform. Having quality posts with $100 payout will give content creators incentive to produce better content with both length and depth. It will be easy to take out spammer and scammers that way.

A little bit at a time is all we can do. Thanks for trying.

30.01.2020 16:25

You know my ideas quite clearly, as we already spend enough time off the chain. I always thank you for the job you do for us. It is thankless and you don't get any credit for it.

Thank you for your behind the scenes work to help put Steem in a better place in the future 😁

You are welcome Asher. Often time I can accomplish a lot more staying behind the scene, but sometime you got to come forward.

Dear @azircon

Interesting choice of topic. I don't even remember last time I visited trending. I'm sure one can find interesting content there - however now I'm kind of moving my entire attention towards upcoming HIVES. Together with few friends we even launched our own community.

It surely helps me with content discovery. More than my own feed or trending page.

However it's clear to me, that new users will end up looking at trending page in the first place. And my belief is that instead of focusing on displayed content - their attention will be fully on posts rewards. Sometimes I wonder what all those new users can think at that moment.

That does make our landing page look unappealing for both new and existing users.

You've such a good point here. I never actually thought about this issue.

Again, solid read. Upvoted already.

enjoy your sunday :)
Yours, Piotr

Why don’t you stop your wallet spam? That will help the community.

Hi @azircon

Is that really all you have to reply to my comment? It made me wonder why did I bother to read your post and spent extra few minutes commenting on it.

Anyway, I will surely not bother you again with sending memos if it does frustrate you so much.

I noticed you downvote me


What is going on here

I don't appreciate downvote to my post

13.02.2020 01:11

Good your rep is now 2 darling! Do one more comment and I will be able to get it down to negative! Many thanks!

13.02.2020 01:57

why did you downvote me
Steemit community platform is a decentralized unit
why do you enforce censorship on my posts

14.02.2020 07:05

Did not see this within the first week so I can't upvote but nice initiative and presentation.
