Important News for CTPSB

A couple of weeks ago, the upvote service that we were using stopped working and I tried to make manual curation with the @ctpsb account. The problem is: I don't have enough time to do it well and I just ended up upvoting the posts of the community members. I therefore started to use hive.vote to automatize the upvotes of the program. The problem here is that I couldn't set tags and quality limits to these upvotes. The result is that the account was upvoting the posts of the community members without consideration of content and quality.

That is the reason why I went through a thorough analysis of all the accounts in the program. I looked at the wallets and also at the activity and at the posts of each author.

Supporting the CTP community

The main objective of the ctpsb project is to help the members of the CTP community to grow. It's not so easy to define who is and who is not a member of this community. However, it's not possible to be part of this community without any CTP stake!

I believe that the more people stake CTP, the more they have skin in the game and the more they can be considered to be part of this community.

The CTPSB project organizes regularly CTP staking contests and it's no secret that we want to have people staking CTP tokens. For this reason, I decided that the upvotes given by the @ctpsb account are from now on related to the CTP stake somebody has. The more CTP stake, the bigger the upvotes from @ctpsb can be.

I've set some thresholds that I won't disclose. If people don't meet these thresholds, they will lose their place in the program and the according upvotes. The message is: stake CTP!

We want quality content

When going through some of the accounts, I have to say that I was kind of surprised by what I saw. There were some posts that didn't have any text at all. The only content of the posts was a screenshot! If it's one post, I don't say anything but if all the posts of an author are like that, I believe there is no space for this person in this program. It's totally unfair if such content gets similar upvotes than a 1000 word post!

CTP tag

The CTPSB project aims to promote the CTP community as I mentioned already. This means that we want to favor the ctptalk.com frontend. Your posts will only appear on this front-end if you add the #ctp tag on your posts.
When I went through the accounts of the community, I checked for each author how regularly he posted with the CTP tag. According to this, I limited the number of upvotes he could get from the program.

Trying to be fair to everybody

The CTPSB project is owned by the holders of the CTPSB token and it's original purpose was to help the members of the CTP community to progress on Hive. It may sound hard but we don't want to support people who cash out all what they earn on Hive. We want to support people who want to build and grow. We also want to support the people who are committed to this community and who continue to grow their CTP stake.

I have set some parameters for myself that I will check regularly. They are not fixed because everything is dynamic but they can be summed up as follows:

  • To be part of the CTPSB program, you need to have a good amount of CTP staked and your stake has to grow over time
  • The more CTP stake you own, the bigger upvotes you can get
  • Quality content is paramount. It's very difficult to define what quality content is. However, your posts need at least to have text in them. A simple image is not a post!
  • You need to use the #ctp tag on your posts.
  • We also want you to power up hive and grow your account over time

With these parameters, I have decreased the voting power for some accounts and increased it on others. I have also limited the number of posts that can be upvoted per week. The more regularly you use the CTP tag, the more upvotes you can get but it won't be possible to get upvotes every day.

The idea of these measures is to make sure that the voting activity of the @ctpsb account still fulfills the original purpose of the project which is to help the members of the CTP community to grow on this blockchain and at the same time make it as fair as possible for everybody involved.

I hope this makes sense to you and I would love to hear your feed-back.

I totally agree with this, to many people try to take the easy way out on posts and then just cash out the earnings. I understand what CTPSB is and if you want to take the easy way out or not support the community by having and increasing your stake then you don't deserve the rewards this program offers.

Thanks a lot for your feed-back. I don't have anything about people wanting to chash out their earnings but I believe it's not something that should be supported by the CTPSB project. Because it actually drains ressources away from the people that want to build and grow.

Good decision with valid reasons...
I can imagine how hard and time-consuming it is for you to search and curate posts every single day.
Many thanks for your efforts <3

Now I understand why in the last weeks I don't recall to have received any vote from @ctpsb despite the fact that I post in #CTP.
Can you give a rough idea about what to expect for someone that own just a fraction of CTPSB, and has 1250 CTP staked?

Make sure that you increase that CTP stake a bit and you should be able to get some votes ;-)

thank you for the explaintion of how upvoting will be working and totally agree with the changes. I myself haven't been real active as I been focusing more on my health issues. My time on the internet has been reduced so first always make sure that my customers are taken care on my sites. Then depending on how I'm feeling, I start to do other things. As my health improves I'm able to do more.

I hope your health is going to improve. It's important to put the priority on what really matters and I believe that health should always come first. Just give me a heads up if you start to post again.

I agree with and support the direction you have chosen to take. Manually curating is very time consuming. Take care.

100% agree. I am a firm believer in CTP, and it was their training that helped me take my email marketing efforts to the next level. I have nothing but respect for Jon, Blain, Eliana, and the tribe in general.

I think what you're seeing is people who use the ctp tag on their stuff just for the tokens, when they don't really embrace the tribe itself, just the payouts.

I love owning ctpsb and it's the second most valuable asset in my @robwillmann portfolio:

I'm only 17th on your holdings richlist though:

Keep doing what you're doing, sir. You have an army of folks who appreciate your efforts.

Thanks a lot for your kind words! I believe that the great thing about the ctpsb project is that we all have money invested in it and with 104 CTPSB tokens you own about 1% of the whole fund. That's why I try to make sure that all the people involved in this project are treated fairly and that the project continues in the same direction that it was initially planned.

Hi, @ctpsb what's the minimum of ctp staked to get a vote?

There isn't a direct link between the CTP stake of an author and the voting activity of CTPSB. People can have a big stake without trying to be part of the CTP community. CTPSB will only support people who take an active part in the community.

In order to get into the program, people need to qualify first by engaging with our posts, taking part in the CTP staking contests, the ctp challanges and so on. Once they do that, they can apply to be part of the program. However to qualify to enter and stay in the program, people will need a certain amount of CTP staked. The bigger the stake, the more chances to be taken in the program.

Good to see this update. I have been very regularly staking the CTP tokens, I have also delegated certain amount of #hive to #ctpsb project, initially when I raised this question I was delegating #ctp tokens to you, which I stopped and started delegating #pob. I have been using the #ctp tag for a while now, however, I dont remember I have ever got any vote from the #ctpsb account. Can you please take a look at my account as well.

The CTPSB project will only upvote people within the community. The idea is that you can't buy being part of a community with tokens. It requires engagement and participation and of course it requires also holding a certain amount of CTP tokens. We organize CTP staking contests regularly and there are also other challenges run by the community that you can tap in to get started.

Absolutely right. I am staking 2800+ #ctp tokens, I have delegated hive to #ctpsb and I also use #ctp tag. Still I am not a part of the community ?

Please understand that the project can support only a limited number of people. We want to support people who want to build their hive and CTP stake and who take part in the life of the community.

Unfortunately all your staked CTP tokens are delegated out. When I see this, I don't think that it's your priority to build your CTP stake...

I will put you on the waiting list and look at your account the next time I make an update. Maybe I will have a spot available ;-)

Huhhh ! I will withdraw it right away. Actually, I organised contest on #ctp for financial crimes and I delegated some of my #ctp power for others to make a good use and when it was returned back I delegated it to #brofi. But You are right, I will unstake it today. Please add me to your waitlist as I would like to be active on #ctp

Felt like bothering you once again. Just wanted to update you.

  • I have partially withdrawn my delegation and my wallet shows some #ctp power.
  • My current post uses #ctp tag
  • I have also delegated small amount of #hive to #ctpsb.
    Hope you will add me to your voting list now.

Thanks for all your efforts. The minimal threshold to be taken in the program at the moment is 2000 staked and undelegated CTP. I therefore can't take you in the program yet but CTP is pretty cheap right now ;-).

I am agreed with your decision...
I have a doubt.. as Incan understand from the post now onwards the voting parameters has been changes.. is that means that its the end of swarn booster initative?
my main account was on list of swarn booster but I am staking all me CTP token in my kids account ie @gurseerat and I am powering up Hives in main as well as in my kids account. As I don't ctp stake in my main account is that means I amnnot eligibility for upvote.. (I don't mind if you include my kid account instead of my main account)
