Hive Tour Update - Decentralized blacklists and Mutes lists

in #hivebuzz3 months ago

After approaching the various aspects of the Hive platform (social, finance and governance), we return to the social side to invite you to discover new features introduced recently: decentralized blacklists and mutes lists.

Introducing blacklist and mutes list stages

Decentralized Blacklists and Mutes lists are tools that can be useful to protect you from unwanted trolls or spammers or to identify users who are trying to abuse the system.

The concept of decentralized blacklists and mutes lists was introduced by @blocktrades some time ago.

Blacklists

Blacklists allow anyone to construct a set of blacklisted users and allow each user to use one or more blacklists created by others.

Blacklisting an account implies the blacklister thinks the account is doing something wrong, and is intended to be used as a way to warn others that he thinks they should be careful when dealing with that account.

With the related steps, we invite you to:

  • use the blacklists created by other users
  • create your own blacklists and share them with others
  • have at least 5 users follow your blacklist.

Mutes lists

Mutes lists allow anyone to construct a set of users and allow each user to use one or more mute lists created by others.

Muting an account means one doesn’t want to see the account’s posts and comments. Most frontends honor muting by preventing those posts from being displayed when its users view the site.

With the related steps, we invite you to:

  • use the mutes lists created by other users
  • create your own mutes lists and share them with others
  • have at least 5 users follow your mutes lists.

More to come

These additions were made possible thanks to the new HiveSQL features added recently by @arcange to HiveSQL, which enable us to track how people on Hive use these lists. We heard he is working on additional features that will enable us to add new steps to our tour.

Therefore, it's not over yet. We should introduce these new steps soontm. So, stay tuned for more fun!

How do you make/submit a list?

Is there any front-end services coming out possibly for creating/managing our own lists?

I try to keep notes on the most belligerent users I prefer not to interact with, but my personal list is small. It would be ideal if there was an additional field in the list with hidden or public notes beside each user for why they were added by the owner of the list.

This is good since these days I met tun Troll who all he does is leave strange comments and give negative feedback,

This is my Introduction post.
Plz see it.

Interesante eso me parece bien que expliqué para que sirven ambas listas ya que desconozco su utilidad
