A couple of weeks ago I said I was going to start giving a 250 SP delegation away every week, with each delegation lasting three months. This way, I will plan to keep three thousand SP “set aside” just for this ongoing event.
The purpose of this little experiment is to encourage more content and creator discovery as well as engagement .
I would like to also figure out how to give these accounts full up votes during these delegations. I could add them to my auto-vote list, but they may (likely) get missed if my power is below the cut-off when they publish. Maybe an ideal would be to pause auto-voting until fully recharged then vote for the article and then resume auto-voting. Unless someone knows of a solution already, I guess I need to find a coder to make a tool for this. If there is anyone that has a good idea here, I would love to hear it.
I have decided that for now, selection will be just me looking for content and creators in the areas of interest and deciding which I feel I would like to delegate to. I expect that I will refine things as I go. Hopefully, this can morph into a bit more of a community project.
Rules & Stuff:
- The first rule is that this is an experiment. It is for fun and rules are subject to change at any time and without notice. (I will likely post updates on the next Weekly 250 here in the Rules & Stuff section.)
- Content must relate to the type of content you might find on DiggnDeeper.com. Basically, this means open source, decentralized projects. Voluntaryist philosophy and Abolitionist or anti-prohibition topics.
- Delegations will be given on Mondays along with a post about the content and/ or creator.
Winner, Winner Chicken Dinner!
It has turned out to be a much more involved task to dig up the account I want to delegate to than I anticipated. I started looking in earnest on Thursday or Friday and continued off and on through Sunday.
I really wanted to start out the project with a maker based account. Luckily, we have a new tool to help us search out tags.
@diytube is the first recipient of our little effort.
This is a somewhat bigger account and in the future, I will try to focus on smaller but active accounts. But this is such a great example of the kind of activity I think we really need on Steem to set us far apart from any other platform I’ve ever seen.
@diytube is actively working to both promote a crucial dApp, @dTube on the Steem blockchain and a very important segment that I feel is one of the best fits for this platform – makers.
They have a very active curation and promotion team. They actively accept delegations and put those delegations to use by curating DIY (Do It Yourself) types of content on @dTube. I think this is a very valuable thing to do for the makers and for Steem.
