First off, very excited to see that it appears to be taking off with quite a following. As a community customized page, I hope it can help with many of the perceived problems with the platform. And a claim drop is coming (soon) where we can see how it will affect the scoring of posts. The one oddity is that it's tied to the steem power so that will still be a large factor affecting things.
So, earn steem and earn PAL. We're seeing an awful lot of faucets here now, so the real test will be looking at the sinks. I imagine there's a Steem-tied sink already in the form of a voting bot (not sure if that's actually true), and the implicit sink is a platform where there is a more functional content discovery mechanism, the sink being the ability to influence it for the greater good. That remains to be seen, and it's not clear what the value is. As is the case with many things in this space.
The website itself. What's different about it? Well, you got a themed website, where the data is swapped out with what's in the @holger80 scotbot, which is recomputing what posts and comments are worth in terms of PAL. The wallet is also back, with the ability to see basic transactions, do reward claims, transfers, and staking.
Some of you may have noticed that you were initially giving 100% votes. That was fixed as soon as I found out about it, sorry about that!
Suggestions on my radar:
- Show STEEM/SBD amounts (user option)
- Improvements to personal feeds (it isn't ideal, post filtering from a non Scot feed)
Let me know if you have others.
Any suggestions about the interface are also welcome to be filed at https://github.com/eonwarped/nitrous where the source driving all of these custom websites come from. And of course contributions are welcome as well.
See you all around!
