The Brit List: October 2021

avatar

Introduction

I started compiling these lists in December 2020 to continue something @pennsif used to do as I think it helps bring the community together. Since then I have found lots more people to include. @HiveSQL has been really useful for this. I use Python with beem (by @holger80) in a script to generate what you see here. Some of the post is manual as I like to include some commentary and I will keep tweaking it. I am open to suggestions for improvements. I aim to do a fresh list on the first Saturday of each month.

I also rely on the community to let me know of more people to include who may not have obvious account metadata. You can find me in the @teamuksupport Discord to discuss it or drop me a comment.

The list will include anyone living in the UK as well as Brits who have moved abroad. Inclusion on this list does not mean I recommend people, but I will remove accounts if they are known to be abusing Hive or are falsely reporting their location. If you have lost control of your account through phishing or other means then let me know so that I can update your entry.

Previous editions

What it means

The numbers above are for those who had posted or commented in the previous month. In the lists below I break each region into three lists:

  • Active as above.
  • Just voting. I will guess that a lot of these use automatic votes, e.g. HiveVote. Previously there were some that appear to have been compromised as they vote for known abusers. Those are now excluded until I hear that they have recovered control.
  • Inactive in the last month, but most have done something since Hive started. We can hope to bring them back.

I want to count people rather than accounts as some have several. I can include those in brackets if you want. Let me know if you want me to update your listing. You can be as specific as you like about your location.

Commentary

A few more active this month and we gained about 13 more people, whilst some went inactive. I have almost 500 on file now and it would be good to see more of them come back. A rising $HIVE price may help with that, but so will encouragement from friends. I know Hive is not perfect, but it needs good people to make it better.

I hope we can start having some meetups now restrictions are easing. They do not have to be anything fancy. Find a venue with enough space for people to spread out and let us know. I will get to any that are viable for me.

Given the lack of publicity for Hive word of mouth is our most powerful marketing tool. Talk to those who might be interested. Those who are already into crypto may have a head start on the technology, but with tools like Hive Keychain it is not too hard to get started.

If you know people who need an account I can create them for free and am willing to delegate something to new users to get them started. Selected people may be added to the @tenkminnows trail.

Your regions are good, but locations are all over the place. If I lived in decrepit Braford.. I would be posting every day due to almost every building being derelict.

We need to get some going. I can make it into London if something is on. A bit harder to drag people to where I am. If you know of a suitable venue then set a date and I'll try to be there.

I just thought I'd chime in because I realised I hadn't updated my hive stuff in quite awhile, this is on purpose as I'm simply too busy as I'm moving out and it's great but I just don't really have much time to do anything aside from the occasional shitpost. Once I'm properly settled down though I'll be posting an absolute content fest, didn't realise people were keeping track still lol.

Seems someone in Korea is giving it some love. No idea what's driving it, but maybe someone will notice.

To answer your other comment, some lower ranked witnesses who could use some support are:

@c0ff33a @dragosroua @pfunk @apshamilton @r0nd0n

I try to check out what people are actually doing for Hive and give them my support. I just noticed one of my selections is inactive, so I can add someone else. I tend to use up all my votes. I expect a lot of people don't even vote.

Yes, that sounds good would you be available to do that for me, or are you busy? It is ok if not but I know I can trust you to do right by me I am sure there's plenty more I can trust just I have not really spoken to them yet.

All you have to do is enter an account name at the bottom of this page. Then you vote for the same ones as them automatically. I use all my votes manually and do review them to make sure they are still active.

@Steevs nice logo like that. Also, I am from West Midlands Uk. In the list, it is mentioned somewhere in the UK. Do I need to update the address on my profile for that?

I didn't make the logo, but I give credit. I have updated your location for next time. I run queries for UK locations on profiles, but I find others by tips from people. It's optional to specify where you are. The regions on the list may be useful for meetups.

I just hope to see more people active on Hive.

Thank you for the shout out @steevc I appreciate the acknowledgment it really does go a long way. Not only does it make people feel like they're part of something but it makes them feel like they have/are helping to build a platform that will benefit everyone involved and in some cases benefits people that don't even know what Ecency/hive is such as a charity. Keep up the good work you do buddy and I will back you 100% with everything you do mate. #unitetheworld #socialsafety #freedomofspeech

Cheers. Hope all is good with you. We need to keep building this community so more people can benefit from what Hive can do. I hope you can meet some other Hivers as you will have lots to talk about. Try to join in with @hivefest if you can. It's free to attend and you can at least meet people in a virtual venue.
