@misterengagement and ENGAGE are back to support engagement on Steem

in OCD2 months ago (edited)

Thanks to @contrabourdon of Witness @untersatz, the ENGAGE token can again be issued by accounts holding 1000 or more ENGAGE in their Steem-Engine wallet.


All in all, I think many that are looking long on Steem are fairly happy with the most recent hard fork and the fallout from the EIP. However, one potential negative has been the lack of reward being distributed to top level post commentary.

With the value of a comment needing to surpass around 2/2.5 cents, and this requiring almost a 100% vote from an account holding 5000 SP to escape 'dust', along with the EIP boosting to curation rewards when applied to comments(posts) exceeding this figure, there has been a noticeable reduction in votes placed on comments.

I read not long ago that quality, or interesting, posts have fallen, but I'm not convinced this is true and see many each day that are complimented with some excellent, well-thought out comments. In some cases these are rewarded, and I've been trying to do so with my Tribe alts, but I think that with communities attracting attention, these posts would look even better with the 'best' comments sitting at the top of the feed.


As stated, @misterengagement was brought back to life yesterday and has been initially loaded up with 5000 ENGAGE. If you have 1000 ENGAGE or more in your SE wallet (just over 50 accounts at present) you can issue up to 50 ENGAGE in 1 hit, as per the example below.




A little ENGAGE is nice, but what would be better is a boost to the comment in STEEM to both reward the commentator, and potentially move their comment up the list of comments in the post. The plan then is for me to delegate @misterenagement some Steem Power, potentially trail the vote, and see who else would like to do the same - either manually or automatically.

Fortunately, @misterengagement has a couple of big fish friends who are looking out for quality comments to reward, especially if they are made within their favourite communities. There will hopefully be more on that in the comments, and so if you have #skimmed the post, be on the look out :)

ENGAGE holders are mostly those who have been issued the token for their engagement on Steem over the past year. The Engagement League and a selection of other posts pulling data from @steemsql have guided me in issuing the token to those that make an effort to connect and communicate or grease the chain, if you like. I am eternally hopeful that these accounts will issue the token (and potential follow on votes) in the right way and not abuse the system. However, accounts can be blocked from calling the account if need be.


Alright, more information to follow in the comments (clues in the tags).

And thanks again to @contrabourdon (Witness @untersatz) for reviving @misterengagement.

Cheers

Heyyo! To spice things up a bit, especially now with communities being here, we got to talking about the engage token and some ideas came to mind. I'm writing this comment here to let ya'll know what we been thinking and we welcome anyone to let us know what you think about the ideas and if you think they could be improved.

We at OCD have been wanting to increase engagement for some time now and instead of creating a new token we figured using one that already exists and can be used platform wide would be better.

From our end though, we would want to enforce the engage token in these ways:

Our curators at OCD will be given 1k engage tokens each (I have about 4700 from god knows when that I'm gonna share with whichever curator is interested) and when they're doing their usual curation in our community and give out engage tokens to commenters they happen to read we will give that comment a vote depending on length, quality, etc.

We are not interested in maximizing curation rewards so in order to incentivize users to engage and curate comments more we'll be voting on the comments late. Everything still manual but only on trusted curators for now (including @abh12345 and in the future maybe other users we trust won't abuse the system). With this we are hoping people will read more comments and engage with them while at the same time curating them knowing there's a possibility for a bigger vote coming in later from our accounts rewarding their curation.

On top of that the funding we initially set aside for the tip bot which isn't here yet and has been going towards funding #godsunchained giveaways on the @teamocd account. We will instead be setting it aside to at random times purchase the existing sell orders off of steem-engine markets of the ENGAGE token. We're hoping this will give the token some more demand and raise engagement and that more users will want to engage more to be able to earn the token from users with 1k who are able to issue it creating more users in the future holding 1k tokens while knowing that there's some buying power that will give them some value.

So, a TL;DR of what you can look forward to when engaging:

  1. ENGAGE Tokens worth not nothing(?)
  2. Being able to issue tokens yourself once you hit 1000! (don't abuse it or we will sue block you)
  3. Possible curation on your engaging comments(!)
  4. Higher curation rewards if bots don't front-run you(?!)
  5. ???
  6. More engagement platform wide!

For starters the OCD team will be focusing on engagement on our community but every project should be able to do something similar on their own or come up with better incentives/ideas - if so feel free to share them here! :)

Anyway let us know what you think!

!ENGAGE 69

This I think is a great effort on your part, I was actually surprised by @curangel with a vote of theirs on a comment I made, it is nice to see people reading comments, the real ones are great additions to the post, and often times you end up with a more pleasing over-all read and feel from the post when you include reading comments. I hope that this will get more people reading post, and not just auto voting fly-bys.

Now all I have to do is remember that I can leave engaging comments a few tokens again.
!ENGAGE 50 to help you in your distribution to your agents of joy.

Please do, I know you are one to spend time reading comments and are ready for action with 1700+ ENGAGE :)

I've been saving them, now all I have to do is remember to give them sometimes.

What do I think? Awesome is what I think :D

I think you might need to push this out as a post. Can probably use most of the comment and just burn a % or whatever.

Thanks for giving me the motivation to get Mr E back up and running, I hope some of the curators take you up on the offer.

I can issue to whoever wants in, so you can keep yours in case they moooon. Cheers!

Sounds good to me!

That sound really great. I am sure, those comments which are not lengthy, yet conveying the meaningful message, must be equally treated. No doubt, this will increase the overall engagement.

!ENGAGE 10

As stated, @misterengagement was brought back to life yesterday and has been initially loaded up with 5000 ENGAGE. If you have 1000 ENGAGE or more in your SE wallet (just over 50 accounts at present) you can issue up to 100 in 1 hit, as per the example below.

Well, I am in the 153th position in that ENGAGE richlist ranking. So, just guess how many ENGs I have now and how many I still need to reach the 1000 ENGs mark?

IMO, I 'engage' and I drop enough of my nonsensical comments everywhere around. But I don't think commenting more would help me out to achieve the 1000 ENGs goal. What I need is more peeps willing to give me ENGs for my nonsensical engaging comments. Hahahaha

Still a little way to go for that 1K target :( If you get involved with the OCD community pages and comment on the stuff you like/don't like around there, hopefully 1k will be on it's way soon :)

!ENGAGE 50

Thank you mate. For your new Engages. (you've been the only one who gave me all the ENGs I have so far LoL) and thank you for your reply and your welcome suggestion too. :)

Yeah! why not? Let's try to flood the OCD community pages with some of my exquisite nonsensical comments about what I like/don't like over there in exchange of some ENGAGEs. That way, I will have easily reached 1000 ENGs while I'm eating my 12 grapes on New Years Eve of 2021. };)

Cheers!!

Woah, my ENGAGE tokens are showing 2412.56% growth at the moment. Perhaps from the work being done right here. Keep it up!

Engagement on steem is the the secret hot sauce that can make an awful post become sensational, or a amazing post become epic. It almost always goes well with everything.

Comedy :D

If we can get 5/10 cents (I'm hoping a bit more for the best comments - see @acidyo's reply) for comments via misterengagement i'll be happy, and hopefully that'll be a bit more encouragement for others to spend an extra minute reading and writing something out.

It's kind of cool to see these "old" initiatives come back to life! I figured something had to be happening because the handful of ENGAGE tokens I have suddenly shot up 2300% in value today...

Glad to see this happening... I am increasingly getting the sense that we are just on the verge of starting "Act II" of the Steem experience!

Well, at least I can hope we are....

I miss the days when you could full time comment, I don't know why steemit changed it with that fork.

Yes sir - You have over 1700 ENGAGE and so are one of the 50 or so that can distribute :)

Very cool idea. I hope it helps to boost engagement. I should look into getting some, I like to give away tokens myself. 😀

Adding this to the votes I want to trail when I finally sort my shit out espec pre travel

Aww thanks :)

It's not set up to vote as yet but will be soon hopefully. I'm hoping that the vote can take the comment over the dust threshold as a minimum with my own delegation / follow on vote, but I'm hopeful they will be at least one larger account boosting the best comments 'nominated' by @misterengagement (or his summoners) :D

I can delegate a bit to it too, or trail or something :)

Either or sounds good, when it's up and running, thanks. Hopefully 'dust' will easily be surpassed :)

I have a little SP I can use also to delegate to the account. It is going to take me a while before I can vote on comments if the price stays down here, and I am one who does enjoy reading and leaving comments, so being able to even in a small way help some great comments get rewarded I am in. Let me know when and what account to delegate to.

Don't worry about delegating any. There are plenty with SP wouldn't notice a K or two. I'll be knocking when you reach 50k+ :)

i'm confused as usual 😂

I get I can issue up to 100 engage in one hit. Is there a limit to how many per day? Do they come out of my balance? Am I giving them for posts or comments? 😕

???????????????????

Have I wished you Happy New Year Yet?

If not . . . Happy New Year to you and yours? 😍

Hi Gillian :)

I get I can issue up to 100 engage in one hit.

Yes

Is there a limit to how many per day?

No, but @misterengagement's supply will be kept low so an overkeen issuer can't go mad. Also, when he is voting it would be nice for folks to keep an eye on his VP - so maybe judge on that a little too. Wishful thinking eh? :D

Do they come out of my balance?

No

Am I giving them for posts or comments?

Comments more than posts :)


I'm not sure we have crossed paths since the New Year and so a Happy New Year to you too! :D

Stupid question time. There’s a token called Engage (NGA) and there’s a token called Engagement Token (ENGAGE).

What’s what?

Ahh, NGA has arrived since I've given the list a decent scan.

ENGAGE is mine, issued by @misterengagement. Cheers :)

Ah i'm only at 450!!! Devastated, or devo'd as we say here down under... Stoked to see @acidyo getting on board with this one as well. Comments always add value to a post - it's part of what I like about Steem. You learn a LOT from the comments - it's part of a big dialogue about LIFE, the universe and everything rather than as solo cry echoing through space. xx

Hot on the 5k trail for ENGAGE, I have been collecting some off the market :)

Hey @abh12345, here is a little bit of BEER from @definethedollar for you. Enjoy it!

Learn how to earn FREE BEER each day by staking.

Sounds like fun!

I must say I'm impressed at the way you're keeping up your engagement rate now you're back in work!

Or maybe that's the way things work: being in work actually makes you more productive outside of work.

I'm finding myself grinding to a halt!

@abh12345 Greetings, I saw one of the engagement lists and many of our friends were on there. In fact I was surprised that we were not also listed. But I think that we would have to join up somehow to show our engagement?
Blessings!

Are you an Engagement League member, Stephen? It's easy to join in, just go
here and leave a comment on the Sunday post and say you would like to join!

Thank you my dear friend. I went to the link and we have just been accepted.
Your kind help is appreciated!
Blessings!

Remember to watch for Asher's Engagement League Post each Sunday! It's always fun to see your data for the week and to see if you won a prize,

Will do Lady Melinda, although I am not very good to watch for posts hahaha.
I bet tomorrow I will have forgotten about Asher Lol
But I will try and thank you once again my dear friend.
Hope that you will have a good weekend.
Blessings!

Forget? Yeah, it's what old people like us do, Sir Stephen! 👵😁

Your post was mentioned in the Steem Hit Parade in the following categories:

  • Comments - Ranked 7 with 66 comments
  • Pending payout - Ranked 3 with $ 61,84

I think I have 1 ENG that I have no idea where it got in from. I'm also one of the the others that have no clue about how to use Steem-engine for anything but that's no biggie. I'll just keep stacking them up and hope for the best.
I see your alts and I have to say, your ability to control all those accounts is impressive.

Well ENG is the main pair on Steem-Engine, ENGAGE is a my token 😊

These days I have less time to manage the accounts but they are just about ticking along whilst I’m at work. Stack and hope is my plan too 😬

Great to see and I must start making use of my Engage tokens and share some around
If one engages he gets !ENGAGE 50 from me

Cheers Jay 😊

The account has been busy and isn’t enforced by many rules as yet, and so I ask that the VP is checked in on and the ENGAGE is sent to your favourite comments of the day.

Interesting read @abh12345

I like your concept of boosting engagement and promoting those users who are the most active in comment section. I've never heard about ENGAGE token and I surely will get familiar with it and will do some more research.

Could you tell us little bit about this token economy? I wonder where demand for this token would be coming from. Will it provide any utility/usage for those who purchase it?

Upvote on the way :)
