Engagement project up and running again . A backup script using BEEM Api.

in LeoFinance2 months ago

Good evening to everyone , hope you all are having a great day .

Yesterday I posted about pausing the Engagement project because HiveSQL went to subscription mode . I worked on a new script yesterday ( which took some considerable time to be honest ) to find an alternative . I knew BEEM Api would offer a solution to this but I also knew it is not as effective and effetient as HiveSQL .

Up and running - upvotes delivered for today

I completed the whole script just now to make sure there is no difference between the older formulas and factors and the new one .

The upvotes has been delivered for 13th April right now :)

Good news and Bad news

Good news

  1. We didn't miss any day , yesterday using HiveSQL I delivered the upvotes and after the upvoting was done it went to subscription mode and today we were able to deliver using the new script.
  2. We now have 2 scripts which depends on two different services - 1 = HiveSQL and 2 = BEEM Api .
    • So even if one gives us problem we can use another

Bad news

  1. The new script takes 15x more time to retrieve the same data when compared to HiveSQL .
  2. Bulk data still cannot be retrieved effectively ( not related to this project though )
  3. I have decided to take my cut ( atleast 70% of my own delegation - not from others delegation ) from this week
    • This is to improve the project , I constantly work on the project to make sure everything is going smooth and constantly add new factors to calculate quality , I feel that now it is necessary to take my cut . Till last week although I delegate good amounts to curation accounts I wasn't taking my dividends and it was being distributed to other delegators , from this week I will take a potion of my dividends . I am sure it will still be the best APR provided here on Hive , I can guarantee that .

HiveSQL proposal .

I still support HiveSQL proposal to make it free since a lot of users and applications use this to retrieve data and make Hive better . I understand the costs required to run it .

If you like to support it , please vote for the proposal here - https://peakd.com/me/proposals/138

If you find any irregularities , feel free to let me know .

Since it is a new script , some formulas or some other factors might be wrong , I have tried my best to cross-check each and every line but still if you see any irregularities , please let me know .

From tomorrow , the ranking with the values ( images ) will be uploaded directly to the post itself through @amr008.ctp account and not on https://hivelayers-stats.herokuapp.com .

This is done for 2 reasons

  1. Let's try to keep everything on Hive blockchain
  2. Too many images on the herokuapp = server response will be slow .

Regards,
MR.

We can't expect poor Arcange to pay all the expenses of keeping the SQL free. He did for some time. It was nice DHF funding it while it lasted!

Well fortunately the day after I posted this HiveSQL proposal was passed and it is free to use again :)

Fantastic!

I think this is the best news of the day. I am happy you dint miss even a single day but i am more happy that you will take your share of profit. There has to be some incentive for everyone to work. The script that you have built is superb and helps people to keep hooked to the platforms, generally termed as tribes. Keep doing good work friend

I think this is the best news of the day.

You made my day by saying this hehe .

Thank you for your kind words , will continue to give my best.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Gotta agree with this one, it will help keep motivated for the long run too which is better for everyone involved

This is great news! Good work! Hopefully they can get the issues with HiveSQL resolved and get you back to running things the regular way at some point soon. In the meantime, I have no problem with you "taking your cut". You've obviously earned it in my opinion.

Thank you very much @dagger212 .

I hope HiveSQL becomes free too because it is by far the quickest to retrieve Hive related data ( and easiest too).

I feel sad for all the remaining projects who aren't able to find an alternative .

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Awesome news! I just went over and supported the proposal. Hopefully it pushes though. The price seems high for developers to take advantage of it, so having it funded and free would be a really good thing.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Thank you for voting . That's what I guess we can do from our side , promote it and hope to pass it .

Right now a lot of funding is just going to HBD proposal alone which is sad to be honest.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Yeah, I need to do a better job of keeping up on all of the proposals that are out there. I always forget to jump over and check out what is current and new.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

To be honest , same with me . I haven't checked out all proposals in detail too which I should . It is one of the most important features of Hive which is being neglected by us .

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Yeah, I agree. I need to somehow work that into my weekly routine. The other problem is some of them are so technical that I could be voting on something not beneficial and not even realize it.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Glad you got your script working. Taking a cut seems fair to me.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Thanks @gillianpearce :) Appreciate your input . I hope everyone feels that way .

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Awesome news! It's great that you were able to find a workaround so quickly. Even if execution time is a lot slower with BEEM, at least you can keep your project running :)

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Yeah you are right @chasmic-cosm , as long as it is running it is fine .

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Thank for the great feedback. i hope the HIVESQL becomes free too. lets all hope for the best.

You are really doing a great Job


Posted via proofofbrain.io

Thanks @marvinix . Well from our side what we can do is to vote the proposal and maybe promote it so that others vote too.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Yes you are right. That’s all we can do and hope it gets approved. I hope it comes out positive.

I am not sure it will unless the HBD proposal is taken down which is eating a lot of funds.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Nice. I am glad that we found a solution to the project but it does suck that it takes 15x as long. I continued to use the front-ends yesterday so I guess I got rewarded for doing so.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Yeah you got upvoted :)

Yeah it takes a lot of time but I am okay with it to be honest , I am glad I was able to get it out early and not miss any day .

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Great news! Especially since I just delegated more to a couple engagement projets yesterday before I read the post. :)

I don't see you taking a cut as "Bad News". You deserve compensation for what you do for all of us.


Posted via proofofbrain.io

Oh I didnt see the new delegations yet but that you very much . Since we didn't miss any days , the curation reward will remain unaffected . Everything is automatic so you will receive the dividends this sunday .

I don't see you taking a cut as "Bad News".

Thank you , I just hope everyone else sees it that way too.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Great news! I'm glad you were able to find a solution so quickly. I understand is not ideal, but it's better than nothing.

Keep up the great work!

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

I agree , I will just leave the script running and do other works while it upvotes , not a big problem to be honest .

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

hope you all are having a great day

Am now :-) taking that small cut is the least you should get, great effort for such a quick fix. Thanks for the update and hope you didn't lose much delegation in the short time of uncertainty


Posted via proofofbrain.io

Thanks @riandeuk , no I just checked and nobody has pulled out the delegation :)

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Good to hear, you gave em little time anyways hehe


Posted via proofofbrain.io

Hehe now that HiveSQL is free again , I need not worry :)

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Yeah saw that, great news. Wanted to tag you but someone else beat me to it. That's one worry of the table :-)

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

sorry double post, replied on the wrong one

I've just voted for the HiveSQL proposal because you are right and I stand by the same beliefs.

Thank you for writing this so I could understand more about Hive and the purpose of this project.

With respect,
@regenerette

Thanks for voting . Not only me but a lot of other projects depend on that too right now which makes me sad :(

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

I'll take more time these days to look into the projects. I know I want to personally help and engage in the GAMIFICATION one if possible, as I am a Gamification Designer. I'll look into others also.
Don't thank me. I have seen you active and I trust that project. I also believe you to be one of the people that cares a lot about hive's development. Plus, I don't know when you have time to curate everywhere and to work on others things. That's why you have my appreciation.
