Why We Should be Checking on Our Auto Upvotes

img_0.4715832929002558.jpg

This post is for those who are thinking of having a bid bot like we had in the old days on Steemit. Those bid bots were sort of really annoying. Annoying in a sense people would bid for these bots on their posts that were sometimes really ugly.

By really ugly I mean to say, they not even deserved to be called a post but still they would receive upvotes from these bid bots creating sort of a mess.

People would not even bother to put some effort in their posts because they knew that they have bots to upvote on their posts.

I don't know, why these bid bots were on the platform in the first place. I am not able to understand. How can a someone allow a mess like this to run on thier platform.

But this mess was there for a longer time and people sucked the blood out of the platform with the help of these bots. I clearly was feeling we were not going anywhere if this mess of bit bots continued.

Thankfully we don't have these bots here on HIVE. Or else we also may have that mess here and like Steemit.

But we do have auto upvotes here on HIVE. And this autoupvoting is sometimes messy.

It's messy in a sense if the user who is autoupvoting don't take some time out checking accounts and their posts that are being set on autoupvoting may be producing something that is not deserving those upvotes leaving other good authors in frustration.

This autoupvoting may also make a writer lazy in their efforts because they know thay are already receiving these auto upvotes, so no need for the efforts.

But their are some good authors too who continuesly are trying to write something good and want to make more rewards adding to the autoupvotes.

So my point is, I encourage manual upvoting in the first place but if you are auto upvoting anuway, then do take some time out and check accounts that are being set on autoupvoting, so that you may have a clue of what you are upvoting for.

Thanks

What is Facebook? Almost full of effortless posts and jokes. And one of the most popular social networks. It makes huge money, but not for its users, but for its creators and owners. The main difference between Facebook and Hive is in this aspect.

If Hive really like to reach mass adoption, then it should not focus on posts with efforts.

Facebook is different than HIVE. Hive is about blogging and people are being rewarded for the content they post. Hive is more than a social media.

Not just/only blogging. There are even games (for example Splinterlands) on this blockchain. Hive is a blockchain, which is really more than a social media.

I actually didnt realize how easy it is to set up automated curation for sooo long. Super glad I finally dove into that subject matter and stopped only manual curation. I agree with you that It is highly beneficial to check your hive stats regularly and monitor the success of your followed curators. I found that the largest curation communities were milking my vote to support less than desirable content that had no rewards for me. I have since started supporting individual creators in my curation trail and have achieved a regular 10% APR on hive stats now with my efforts.
