New Quality Standards for Booster Usage Coming Soon!

in booster •  3 years ago  (edited)

To increase quality we will implement a new set of standards for Booster Promotion Services!

After a very constructive and positive talk on SteemChat´s Steem Solutions Talk we have decided to create a new standard in order to target more serious and quality-focused steemians to upvote instead of keeping up with the status quo where we have had a LOT of complains from reputable users about our services benefit people who have no real interest in STEEM other then milk every token possible from our ecosystem and dump it for Bitcoins as quickly as possible. This hurt the integrity of our front page but also it hurts the marketcap/price of STEEM.

With these (small) changes we believe that our services will be more attractive to people who wish to SHOW & GROW on STEEM. We want to make content creators who invest time, money and talent with integrity and passion a real chance to succeed.

We Want Great Posts on the top and ShitPosts at the bottom!

So this is what will be required of you to be able to use BOOSTER for Upvoting your Posts:

  • You need to have Minimum 100 SteemPower on your account to use Booster!
  • You need to have written and published Minimum 10 Posts and 20 comments from your account before you can use Booster.
  • If you are a Blacklisted user (containing 43,000+ accounts) then you cannot purchase upvote until you have been whitelisted which you can become after publishing real content worth reading/watching/listening to for the audience.
  • If a Moderator determine that your posts is mediocre or of very low quality, you will be put on the GRAY list which will only allow you to use Booster every 24 hours in order for you to focus on your quality post instead of rushing through and publish a shitpost which should not be promoted and sent to the top of the Trending List!

With HardFork 21 and 22 we are living on the New Steem and we expect a change for the better

Normal, regular users should not feel threatened by these changes, they will be implemented and adjusted to fight what the community see as spammers/scammers/plagiarists/low quality shitposters, shills etc.

We think these standards will make more people happy and our users more successful and the readers of the top trending posts more cheerful as the quality go up.

Thank You
The Booster Team!

First time Ive upvoted a post by a bidbot. Good to see changes in a better direction, and especially as a result of dialouge between users, providers and stakeholders. More of that.

Either adapt to a changing market or die, as it should be.

NewSteem is taking over.

Im sure you know this is meaningless change? Just so they have something to show like "they are trying".
10 posts? 20 comments? Give me a break.
The blacklist? The blacklist has been used for a while by a number of bots that are still getting their customers flagged.
None of this here means anything.

This is just something fyrst will use to say:

Look, we were reasonable, we changed, its the others that are unreasonable, theyre still flagging our customers.

Just miniscule change with the pretense of taking the moral highground. Aint going to work.

Im here to tell you... This means nothing and changes absolutely nothing.

The biggest vote buyers on the platform never created absolute shit content, yet they were the biggest leeches and took the most trending spots.

I'm not saying this solves everything. But I like to see people have a reasonable discussion for what is at least a better direction to go than where it has been.

Also, you won't get everyone in a dpos blockchain to agree with you on everything. Some clearly see a role for bidbots, others dont.

I see no role for bidbots or vote selling. The role of bots is leeching the reward pool and creating inflation.
Promotion is an excuse because front ends wont take control of their trending page which they should because there is absolutely no need for content placement to have anything to do with vote values.

I see a role of front ends in marketing and promotion.
Go pay or steempeak for a spot on the top of the trending page. Support their development and get exposure.
Not give money to a middleman that leeches of rewardpool draining transactions that lack any proof of brain. (Proof of greed)

Promotion should burn steem or sbd as it was intended, not reduce the price of steem by creating "dumb inflation" (no proof of brain) and destroying the image of steem in the crypto world and making it look like a pay yourself scam run by bots.

No. Bots have no place here and no this is not a significant change. Only an attempt to stop the flags.
Changes absolutely nothing for me.

@lordbutterfly - maybe it is YOU that do not belong here. Ever crossed your mind that you would be happier somewhere else?

Such insight! YOU just flipped my world on its head. Wow!

"I see no role for bidbots or vote selling."

This principle is the foundation of society. Sticks have no place voting and pretending to opinions alongside people, and they also have no ability to do so. Bots are the same as sticks, but have the ability to do what they should not.

Granting devices the rights and responsibilities of people degrades people. Allowing avarice to blur this line in the sand will be consequential in a world where a robot has already been granted citizenship by the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

Steem pays a price for allowing avarice to destroy society. That price is paid in capital losses, affecting each and every wallet owned by an actual person. Ending the ability of bots to be employed to extract rewards will enable that price to stop being paid.

Nothing else will.

Society is far more valuable than mere money. Most are unaware of what is really valuable, distracted by shiny objects they have been indoctrinated to seek above all else. Steem is revealing the consequences to society such ignorance effects.

Build society. Prosperity will follow. Capital gains FTW.

If it preserves some of my downvote to be used elsewhere, it's an incremental win. I'll take it.
It's not going to change my modus operandi one bit.

We see what happens when,....

Haha, yeah me too!

@booster please take a notice that your bot is not paying anymore token or steem reward for delegation . please contact back and let me know what is the problem so we should continue working with @booster or find other place to delegate our steem power please reply we did not got any salary from 3 days . thanks regards.

Thank you so much for using our service! Congratulations! You've earned an ROI of 110.10% with bids of: 0.017$

Received 10.74% upvote from @onlyprofitbot courtesy of @realboy!

Great to hear this. I was listening in on some of the discussion yesterday. I could see from some of your comments before that you were a little frustrated by the changes in Steem and how people were using them, but you sounded calmer on Discord. There are some valid uses for buying votes, but having people use them on 'shitposts' does not benefit Steem. We need trending to be better quality if we want to attract new users and investors.


"...we have had a LOT of complains from reputable users about our services benefit people who have no real interest in STEEM other then milk every token possible from our ecosystem and dump it for Bitcoins as quickly as possible. This hurt the integrity of our front page but also it hurts the marketcap/price of STEEM."

So, people complained about you?


Flagged for rampant profiteering.

"We Want Great Posts on the top and ShitPosts at the bottom!"


Well then booster Haha looks like im keeping my delegation with yall. Well done team!

Good standards! Hope you might think about adding upper limit to bids, so bidders with quality contents might not getting loss until it's STEEM price drop!

After hearing you speak yesterday and seeing those aggressive comments, I would think you are two different people.

I'm kind of relieved that some middle ground has been made and that you are not that person I perceived you to be when you came on to the SFR discord channel and started riling us all up.

Hoping you are coming to SF4, would be good to chat with you in person. This is making some strides toward a compromise. Thanks for taking the time to chat with us (me listening) for 7 hours yesterday.

appreciate the spirit of the changing attitude but I can't justify this post to be worth $188

Thanks @booster to back STEEM token.

You need to have Minimum 100 SteemPower on your account to use Booster!

That rule is broken soooo many times I regret upvoting this post months ago.

SO How you going to determine quality,
Because alot of Trolls on Blockchain can't draw or come up with a joke very easily.
Are funny entries to contests that get upvoted, cool?

After all the old saying a picture is worth a thousand words.

And then you have the converse... someone who prints out the same stat charts every day or week into a template, with showing how many whales, payouts to witnesses, redfish becoming minnows. Or trending political views.

I would argue that if is all the same a template. Yet the first a Meme actually required the author/artist/comedian to come up with an orginal idea. And the second while informative to a few is just canned hogwash, because the block chain is pathetic and doesn't publish the stats because of poor design.

Why should the second group be rewarded at all?
In your new paradign....btw in this new paradign Booster just increased its profits 2 times because curation rewards doubled!!!!!

Since Booster doesn't create unique content it should blacklist itself then.,


Excellent move Fyrst. As a leader in the Bid bot space your actions determine the future of it and this is a step in the right direction!

I'd love to see you let your booster token stakers be able to bid to swing some downvote power as well.

@booster sir the delegation reward has been stopped please check and fix it

Downvoted for disagreement with rewards. I also read your comment on the bidbottophant post, I am not impressed at all.

This is really good for those that write in english. So for those that try to put them own tongue on the steem ecosystem should have develop something like that for. Never mind this is good for the ecosystem and for everyone on that.

i understand that people feel they have to write in english to 'get noticed' but in my opinion, you're better to write in native language. worst-case scenario, the reader 'translates to english' via google.

@booster now I find you a reasonable promotion service. Always good deserve better.

Good changes. However, bidbots are going to be an easy way to lose money. There should be changes to cope with the new curation.

@booster, I sent you 2 STEEM for upvote, but it looks like something went wrong. No refund and no upvote. Would appreciate you can look into this. Thanks in advance!

Great to hear from you and your team!
We do hope other Steem service providers will also express their thoughts and ideas for the common good.

This post has been resteemed!

hello @booster 2 days ago i was send you 20 steem for upvote but i can't receive upvote . kindly refund me 20 steem

proof is in your wallet plz check and refund

This is an awesome initiative from the team. Kudos to you and more success in the future!

Blacklisted 43.000 accounts? Have there even been that many accounts active on Steemit in the last years? Sounds like an inflated number to me but maybe you can prove me wrong.

Posted using Partiko Android

There are 1.3 Million accounts on STEEM, which is a 3 year and 4 month old blockchain. So of course there has been many who have done whatever they could to gain profits by using multiple accounts with bots to do anything from circle-jerking content to mass-abuse the upvote bots (including me) in order to gain on their non-human content.

We do believe that among those accounts is only a few handful of people with extraordinary knowledge about STEEM and Engineering + some real life assholes ;)

@booster i delegate my SP but did'nt receive a single payment please check...

The majority of accounts blacklisted are multiaccount farms. Some have 10-20 accounts, some a few hundred, and one even has 23K or so.

yeah one of the account farms i was attacking on DW had 430 accounts. alas, since the maps update, none of them have reactivated :(

@booster this is my 3rd attempt to figure out how to get my transfer of 7 steem redeemed. You came on made a, post for people to use your service and I did just that.. Please kindly assist me in processing or refunding my little bit of steem.. I see no discord.. @frystikken

@booster attempt 4 to contact you about lost transfer made days ago

FYI, they appear to be undergoing a major powerdown @skramatters ...

I just wanted to stir the pot and see what might happen if I tried a small booster for the first and only time..

Pretty hilarious to come beg for customers and then vanish 😂

Class act
