When did they sneak that feature in? Nice Move Hive.vote

in #hive2 months ago

So this morning I was messing around on Hive.vote, checking on my auto-vote settings. You know trying to fine tune it a little bit because I have found some time, or actually made some time to do some manual curating. Not a lot but a bit more than in the past. I haven't been one for self-voting, I find it a bit.... selfish if you will. Now if you follow curation trails and one of those trails just happens to fall upon your post and curate it. Guess what happens, that's right, your trial vote ends up self-voting your post. I always end up having to unvote it, well because that is just me.

Behold The Self-Vote Toggle

If yours says TRUE then that means Self-Votes are allowed. So for me, I am going to change that. So simply click the Aqua colored letters stating Click to Edit

Then change it to FALSE

Now your account won't Self-Vote when one of the curation trials that you follow gives your post some curation love. This my be old news to some but I found it nice to know and something others might need to know about also

Yeah, I think it's been around for a while.

I remember looking a few months back when someone mentioned another service had that option. A few months in my life could mean 6-8 months... 🤔

10 years works well. Everything’s “10 years ago” in conversation.

You selfish prick!

I generally only use it on specific users. So, never really took notice of the self vote part.

You can block specific users on Hive.vote? Or is it on ???? What’s the name of the other???

I don't think you could do that.

I only use the fan base function and some of the notifications.

The other app you are thinking is https://rewarding.app/

Which is not the same as @reward.app. I know...confusing.

That's it... I think @abitcoinskeptic said something about it and it’s features.

The feature has been available on rewarding.app for awhile. It's important when following trails, because sometimes they may vote for someone you don't like. And yeah I blacklisted myself.

I hear a global blacklist is coming out, when it is ready, we need to pressure all auto-vote dapps to allow users to exclude people on the list, ideally by default (manually voting is still possible in the rare case they are accidentally on the list).

Agree 100%. Just a toggle to apply the blacklist to your auto voting.

Good to know, I didn't know about it.. thanks.

Thank God I wasn't the only one. 😉 I need to take another look and see if you can block certain accounts also. That would be nice
