Voting Script - Who wants to help me add a blacklist?

6 months ago

Votes for all!



At least that's what I was telling myself as I was tossing together some nodejs, but then it started to work and some of the votes I was giving out made me unhappy.


It will take me half the day to read through other people's blacklist coding and figuring out how it works.


If someone would like to toss a little js code my way I would greatly appreciate it. Something to form a blacklist of users who are not earning an upvote.

Why?



Well that's a good question.

One of the problems Steemit has is that newcomers to the chain poured everything they had into a post, received no votes and they left.

Another problem is people making "shit posts" and not knowing any better.


Goals

Add Blacklist ASAP

Add Pickiness - Scanning for word count, images, and plagiarism flags.

Add comment - A comment explaining why they did or did not receive a vote.

There's more, but I have just woken up and have yet to medicate, I'll get on this asap.

I can't code js. But, I love the idea, and it will be good to keep the community strong.

I think this is great, just definitely needs to be maintained and watched over closely. I can foresee abuse of this if it's not managed closely.

The high potential for abuse will require some tweaking for sure, I think I have a blacklist, testing that out now. The plan is to get it tweaked before anyone notices and abuses it too much.

Do you have the code for this? Could I use it?
I wanted to automate the voting for the people I know produce quality content so I can work on curation. I'd appreciate it if you were willing to pass it on to me. :)

I do and you can, but I cobbled everything together directly on the server so I'll have to package everything up 1st. There's a party at my place tonight so realistically it probably won't be until tomorrow evening.

Edit: I have made upgrades over the past couple days, and added a whitelist.

Plan on making a community account and allowing any user to apply for upvotes (no cost), as long as they are creating quality content they can have a vote.

@taskmanager - You got the code ready and available yet?
I'd love to put it to good use.

Send me an email to ste[email protected] and I'll do up setup instructions for the dependencies and send you the code. Ya gotta swear to only use it for good though.

Also, you should blacklist @offgrid. He's shitposted 18+ times in the past 24 hours to farm your bot. Abusing it ridiculously.

Yeah I gotta remove some of those votes too, it's a whitelist only setup now. The overposting is reason enough, let alone quality.

Yes... I have been promoting heavily on Instagram, Twitter and Steemit .... I will stop posting and promoting Sorry. Http://www.twitter.com/offgrid. Http://www.instagram.com/offgrid_organics.

It's only going to be used to curate quality authors and to also downvote my blacklisted users.

I am ALL for stopping plagiarism; whether images, posts or whatever. I know nothing about coding but would love to be involved.
