RE: 18 Months Using Faucets! Reached Bronze Level on CoinPot, and Trying a Different Faucet

in LeoFinance3 months ago

Hi! Long time ago. The best "faucet" at hive is risingstargame! Free to enter.


A music-related game where we can earn crypto? Might be something for me!

I'm checking it out. I believe I managed to sign up under you. Getting used to this game may take a while, though... I'm still studying the FAQ and struggling with the interface that isn't very accessible to visually impaired users with screen readers (or at least not under Linux). Hopefully I can manage to play the game once I get the hang of what is where...

Sorry to hear you are struggling with the interface. We are only a very small team so it's hard for us to do everything but if you could let me know if there is anything we could add that would make it easier then we will certainly consider it.
For example we could create a simple text based interface for running missions if that would help.

Please let me know in our Discord if possible (Just ask for "Jux").


Whoa, I hadn't expected @risingstargame to come here! :D

It's great to know that you guys are willing to consider improving the game's accessibility.

For now, I've been using the browser's inspector tool to examine the HTML and trying to memorize the order of the icons, and have gone through a couple of missions. Maybe I can manage, but of course it would be great if accessibility could be improved!

We just have to let the mission (and the music) play out, and read the results on the "diary," right? That doesn't need a different interface. It should be just a matter of improving the accessibility of the buttons and icons for the "mission preparations" part. Most of the problems I've found so far have to do with images that have no text describing them (and unfortunately, I have the same kind of problems on Discord!). So, I'll have to write the "report" here:

  • The icons to control the radio playback are clickable images with no text. For these, using the "aria-label" attribute should improve things. It would be ideal if those icons from the radio were turned into buttons that activate from the keyboard (by pressing "Enter" or the space bar), but just the aria-label would already help a lot.
  • The main menu options are also images. Using "aria-label" with text on the links would probably solve the problem too), though the menu navigation (with links inside buttons) feels a bit strange to me. As I navigate using the keyboard and pressing "Tab," the screen reader announces a button, and when I press "Tab" to go to the next element, the screen reader announces the inner link (neither the button or the link have text).
  • Wherever there are buttons (for example in the menus and also the buttons to accept the terms and conditions), they aren't activating from the keyboard like normal buttons should (the links inside activate with "Enter" normally, but the outer buttons don't). The buttons will probably need some JavaScript to respond to "Enter" ("event.keyCode 13") and space bar ("event.keyCode 32").
  • Then, there are icons like the stats icons, which - according to the browser's HTML inspector - are supposed to have tooltips explaining what they are, but the screen reader doesn't catch the tooltips. The tooltips would need a unique ID and the "aria-tooltip" role, and the icons would need the "aria-describedby" attribute indicating the unique ID of the tooltip.
  • The cards, band members etc. also are images with no text, and could use some aria-labels too. It would also be nice to have something indicating which ones are locked.
  • Edit: I found another problem. The "+" next to the energy bar which opens the energy boosts menu isn't focusable and doesn't activate from the keyboard. It would need something like 'role="button"' for the screen reader to see it as a button, 'tabindex="0"' to be focusable from the keyboard, and some JavaScript to respond to "Enter" and "space" keypresses.

I hope these suggestions are useful! I believe they shouldn't be hard to implement.

Thank you!

You dont need My ref link. I earn so low extra with it.
First week I did 0.5 USD But focus at level up.
I Only played 14 Days now.
Just doing missions as often I can.
Just now I do Some different way for small income
GoodDollar UBI
Circle UBI
Rising Star GAME
Coingecko (collect points)
And Splinterlands

What is your best way?

My ways are still:

  • The faucets. I'm still waiting to convert all the earnings to satoshi, but I estimate I'm getting around 1800 satoshi a week (at the current crypto prices, that would be around 5.749 HIVE according to my simulation on BlockTrades).
  • My HP delegation to Qurator, which gets me around 1.4 HIVE per week.
  • And my SP delegation to Brazilians on Steemit (0.38% returns per week, around 19.4% per year). They're also on Hive, but sadly, they don't give delegation returns on Hive yet, so I delegated basically all my SP to them instead of powering down. That gives me around 5.2 STEEM per week (around 7.17 HIVE at current prices).

Nice. You getting better and better.
I have notice that one of better ways is to write post about games - then the gamedevs. will upvote.
Keep on collecting coins !

Nice idea. If I write about the accessibility issues of the Rising Star game, maybe the devs will see it too.

Remember to use #risingstar or #risingstargame - (I use both for sure). ANd yes they will see it. They are very active. And - you get upvote for good post. And if you do a good post you will be in a raffle to win cards. (so start an account first maybe)
