Learn How to Maximise Your Upvotes in the Various Tribes

in tribes •  9 months ago  (edited)

Introduction

2019 was a bad year for most Crypto Projects and Steem was in that boat, too. Many people left because of the tanking prices. They simply disappeared without a trace, never to be seen in Steem again.

However, the ones of us who stayed got to experience the birth and growth of the Tribe System which was developed by @aggroed and @yabapmatt, in cooperation with @harpagon.

This allowed many Tribes to pop up.

  • Some of them were short lived as they had no real purpose or plan to build and grow something different;
  • Some Tribes promised a lot but withered away, as their founding members went silent (LifeStyle is the one I was really hopeful for...);
  • Yet, a few Tribes actually managed to survive and have plenty of active members. The ones which are more attractive to me are, in this order: Reggae Steem, Neoxian City and Creative Coin; Steem Leo is doing an incredible job too, but investments and markets are topics I rarely post about;
  • Just a week and a half ago, a new Tribe appeared to focus on Political content: Talking Point; Again, not a topic that I post about but I can see its importance to the overall community. Many people here publish about Politics and they will feel right at home, in this Tribe. I hope it does well.

On top of this, @steemchiller revamped his Steem World to use Tokens, too, in addition to Steem and SBD... and added the functionality of claiming the rewards from every token at once, as well as staking them all with a single click, which is a lifesaver! And time saver, too!


How to Check Your Voting Power Across the Tribes

This is something that some people, even though they are active in several Tribes might not know:

  • Your Voting Power for each Tribe is independent;

This means that, if you are upvoting several posts a day and only a few for each Tribe, it's likely that your Voting Power in those Tribes is being wasted without you realising it.

I'll use some Tribes as example. By using the tool Steem Scotview developed by @blockchainstudio, you can see your Voting Power across the several Tribes. Just replace "trincowski" to your own username and the name of the Tokens from the Tribes you use the most:

https://economicstudio.github.io/vp/?a=trincowski&t=JAHM,NEOXAG,CCC,LIFESTYLE,LEO,POINT,PAL,TUNES,SONIC

PS: Remember, this link needs the name of the Tokens, not the Tags nor the name of the Tribes.

If you did it right, you should be looking at something like this:

If you don't know how to change the settings for the various Tribes votes, it's very likely that most of your Voting Powers are sitting at 100%.

What do I mean by change the settings for the various Tribes votes? A visual example will show you.

Do you notice that, in the picture above, my STEEM Voting Power was 91.88% and my JAHM Voting Power was sitting at 100%?

Let's see what happens when I upvote one the comments from my friend @dmilliz in a post tagged with the #jahm tag, with just 5% of Voting Power in eSteem:

rmvu81.png

As you can see, even though I only wasted 5% of my STEEM Voting Power, bringing it down from 91.88% to 91.83%, the Voting Power for JAHM dropped from 100% to 98%.

My Vote in STEEM:

My Vote in JAHM:

How to Maximise Your Tribe Upvotes

Now, I'll show you how easy it is to configure this. Just grab the same link from before and remove all the Tokens except one:

https://economicstudio.github.io/vp/?a=trincowski&t=JAHM

The page will now look like this:

jlap5i.png

On the bottom, at right, you can see that I highlighted "Vote Weight Multiplier: 20"

What this means is, that my Vote in STEEM will be multiplied by 20 in the Reggae Steem Tribe. So, my 5% upvote gets multiplied by 20, giving a total of 100% (5 * 20 = 100). Pretty easy, wasn't it?

To make life easier, just bookmark the several links from the Tribes you use more and bookmark them. Keep an eye on the bars and fine adjust your Vote Weight Multiplier until you find the perfect balance.

qyfkpj.png

You don't need to use whole numbers but it seems that 20 is the maximum multiplier you can use. For example, in PAL, my Vote Weight Multiplier is set to 1.75:

Well, that's all for now... if you were paying attention, you should be able to start making a better use of your Votes across all the Tribes, without worrying that your Steem Power will drop too low.

Nevertheless, feel free to make me any questions, if you have any doubt how to properly configure it.

Thanks. I hope you can make good use of it. Do you want a !DERANGED !BEER as well?

This is so great. I really need it and thank you very much!

I'm glad I could help on that!

Here's a bit of !DERANGED !BEER ... Don't drink it all at once.

Haha! Thank you again, @trincowski. I am just about to implement the idea and eager to see it work.

Thank you so much, @deranged.coin. I really appreciate this :)

Very informative, @trincowski. The whole tribes thing is beyond me, I have no idea what any of it means other than #tags as an attention getter to possibly receive curation. Your honesty is deserving of mine.

Guess I’m just an write/edit/post/discord kinda guy who drops an occasional comment like this.

Happy holiday, @trincowski, catch you on the next one.

deranged You just received DERANGED @dandays Keep up the great work, view all your tokens at steem-engine.com

Consider them staked! Thank you @deranged.coin.

Ahahah! But you know that there's a different site for each of the tribes, right?

For example, if you want to see what kind of Reggae articles your friends are posting, just open this:

https://www.reggaesteem.io/@dandays/feed

Or today you could be interested in only reading about Investment, so you'd visit this one instead:

https://steemleo.com/@dandays/feed

These sites filter everything from Steem and show you only the relevant content, making the Blockchain more organised. 😉

Thanks for your comment. Here's a bit of !DERANGED !BEER for you!

Dude. I’m not even sure I should admit it or not but I never knew this. Thank you.

Oh, boy... but you use SteemWorld, right? You know that you're earning a lot of tokens besides Steem?

Yes. Steemworld and esteemapp are all I really use anymore. The part about staking tokens I’m aware of. I just staked another batch this morning actually. The other platforms, however, now I know.



Hey @dandays, here is a little bit of BEER from @trincowski for you. Enjoy it!

This is very educative. Honestly, I never knew ai have been wasting my voting power for so long now. Right now I will try to maximize them.

Thanks. I still have a lot to learn about tribes and how they work.

It's not that complicated. Each tribe is basically a filter to the Steem Network, so that specific information gets easier to find!

Thanks for your visit and comment. Here's a small taste of !DERANGED !BEER for you!

Thanks!

Yeah, I guess I knew how they worked, but I meant more information about which ones are the most active and the best to explore. I use SteemPeak and click on the tribes and end up seeing a lot of the same posts in various ones because people will use several of the tags. Maybe because of that, it's hard to tell which ones are the most active.

This is great for more advanced users. Tweaking out for max ROI reminds me of overclocking CPUs to max out efficiencies.

Do you see this process getting easier for the average person? Maybe with more tools certain things like individual voting power for different tribes could be abstracted into simpler toggles.

Yes, it can definitely be improved with a settings page with some sliders and such. 😊

Sorry, you don't have enough staked BEER in your account. You need 6 BEER in your virtual fridge to give some of your BEER to others. To view or trade BEER go to steem-engine.com

You don't have enough DERANGED to send any, you need at least 5 DERANGED in your Steem Engine wallet , view all your tokens at steem-engine.com

Oh, that failed miserably. Sorry. Better luck next time.

Now that's some truly useful information. I was using a secondary account for all the tribes but it was just proving too much work.

Fantastic info.. thanks!

You're welcome. I realised that many people were doing that and that's how the idea for this post came up. Indeed, it seems a full time job to maintain so many accounts, when such a simple solution was in place since the beginning! I wondered why no one uses it instead... it seems that hardly anyone knows about it! 😊

Thanks for your visit. I'd like to offer you a !BEER but I think the bot ran out of beers. I hope the !DERANGED bot is still alive on Christmas. Let's check.

it seems that hardly anyone knows about it!

Your right, I know @abh12345 goes to some extreme lengths many others using an alt account.

Moving the tokens back to your main account is a right pain in the arse. I hope many see your post.

I only just released all the delegations several days back, simply because of the time it takes.

I do :)

But I also have some tokens i don't see much value in staked on my main account, with the multiplier in play.

The issue with 1 account is that you have less flexibility on the content you vote for. If you want to vote something with LEO, and the author has tagged other tribes that you don't think are appropriate, you can either turn a blind-eye, not vote at all, or vote and remove the vote from the tribe frontends you don't see as appropriate.

Interesting Trin! I did not even know that I can do that! If there's anything that Steemit this 2019 had taught me, its this: if you want to earn more, put in more work!hahahaha

Yes, that usually works. But sometimes it doesn't. Sometimes I write what I think are good articles for an entire week and I get $1 or $2 on each. Then I make a quick post with 3 cat photos and I get $7. Go figure. 🙄

Hey @nurseanne84, here is a little bit of BEER from @trincowski for you. Enjoy it!

Hello friend @trincowski
I'm a little lost on this one.
I've been trying to get organized with this trying to optimize or vote, but I get that. It doesn't give me the option of entering some key to configure. Are there any steps to be taken beforehand? Why don't you let me...

I appreciate your guidance in advance.

Yeah, you need to search your browser's extensions for KeyChain (developed by @yabapmatt). Then you will be able to change it. It's also the best way to login at ReggaeSteem. I thought you were using it already.

Thanks for stopping by... let me know if you succeed.

Here's a sip of !DERANGED !BEER for you!

Ready my friend @trincowski, I've never actually used KeyChain before. But it already allowed me to program things the way I wanted.

Grateful with this help, I didn't know about this tool, and I see that it is very useful, really yes, you can optimize everything a lot.

I am already better organized. Thank you very much.

Nice to hear that. With that extension, you can keep your keys safely stored, which reduces the risk. Steemworld also works with it. 😎

Dude, it's really been great.
Thank you again.
My voting power is already more controlled and I can give many more votes, generating more benefits depending on the tribe.
Great.

You're welcome. I know the post is not very Reggae oriented but I used as many Tribe tags as I could to get the message across them all. I hope that's ok. 🙄

I see many people having too much work maintaining separate accounts for each Tribe... and I'm sure this method will save them a huge amount of time! 😊
