My experience of running #HiveChat

avatar

I would hope most people know about HiveChat. If not then it is a weekly session over on Twitter where a member of the community gets to post some questions and see what people think. It is an opportunity to get some discussion going about Hive where non-users may see it. I was nominated to do it by @the-bitcoin-dood who has already done it himself.

The idea is that you post five questions over the course of an hour. @traciyork helps organise it and made some nice animated slides for me to use. Here are the questions I put up. The images link to the tweets. Responses are still coming in as the time I did this does not suit everyone around the world.

Q1

@theycallmedan, @taskmaster4450 and @nathanmars got a lot of love on this one, but so did many others.

Q2

There were various opinions on this. Some blame the bad vibes some suffer here and others the complexity of using Hive as well as wrong expectations. Marketing is something we need to improve on somehow.

Q3

It was good to hear that some people just vote on what they like. I think strategic and/or automated voting can have issues as it can favour those who get good rewards anyway. We need to spread the benefits to more people.

Q4

The creativity of this community always amazes me. I am into things like comics and music, but there is so much more. Creativity deserves rewards and Hive can provide them.

Q5

I thought I would take the opportunity to try and get some rewards to people. I am voting on posts people link, although some already have pretty good rewards. I do tend to give bigger votes to those with less. Feel free to add more links there and I will have a look.

This was a fun experience for me. HiveChat is generally a pretty intense hour, but it is more so when you are having to create the posts whilst responding to people. I ended up having my dinner a bit late.

Thanks to all who took part. I can recommend doing this. I am sure more volunteers will be welcome.

Hive five!

Great summary of your most excellent Hive Chat, @steevc! You had awesome questions that generated some interesting answers (and as you said, they're still coming in).

Oh, and it was wicked easy putting together your graphics, since all I had to do was add your questions into the amazing graphics designed by @jeanlucsr. 😂 But you're very welcome.

We'd certainly love to have more volunteers to host future Hive Chats. February & part of March are already booked, but if anyone's interested just shout out to me either here, on Twitter, or on Discord and we'll get you set up!

Thanks again Steve!

Cheers. Thanks for you help. I hope to see more people give this a go. It's really not so scary.

You're very welcome & I hope so too. It's wicked cool that we're getting a mix of Hive witnesses/devs and community members hosting, as well as mixing up the time.

Oh, and I went through and dropped tips through PeakD on the posts tweeted out in response to your final question. Chrome is hiding my Hive Tips for Twitter button at the moment, but I'll be back to add those as well once it's working again.

And thanks for the !BEER 🍻

great job on this #HiveChat. Naturally my client meeting was at the same time. I answered the questions as soon as I got out, and retweeted when I thought nobody was looking 🤣

I enjoyed the questions and it looked like you had a pretty good turnout for it! Hive on!

That is awesome. I am happy to see that you got such a big turn out. I will admit I forgot about it even though you and I were just talking about it. Then I had to head home from work and finally I got busy with home stuff. I will try to punch back through them today.

I've seen the tag but I didn't know on what kind of platform it was. Is it simply Twitter threads?

It's all done on Twitter. It may get more people to notice Hive.
