This bot is hosted and run by @bycoleman with a mission to welcome new users, provide helpful links and information and most importantly to help insure they (you) become a success and asset to the platform.

In addition, introbot will work in conjunction with other tools to help fight tag spamming and abuses particularly associated with the introduceyourself tag.

Please see the weekly naughty tagger's lists that are in this blog for more information on this battle.

Thank you Spencer for the support.

I have been fighting tag spamming as best as I am capable of from by @bycoleman account, but my comment and reply box is so filled with traffic, I could no longer answer my core followers.

I am setting up a couple of automatic tools. I believe they WILL make a difference. We have a lot invested in this and we need to protect it!

Blessings!

Yes, I like your @bycoleman project and I often report the posts you've commented on to SteemCleaners. If enough people start reporting the spammy posts, eventually, a difference will be made.

I'm here to help you when you need it. I don't have any of programming knowledge and only have 1 Steemit account. However, if you need me to do something I'll work with you to help make this a more spam-free place!

Spencer, that is great to know you are there is I need some help. I will be following you and who knows, well see what develops that needs the most attention.

Right now introbot cannot "warn" anyone since it has no rep, but it will be doing the welcomes. I will continue to fight the spammers with @bycoleman.

Yes, that is good. Currently, I manually post my welcome comments on the intro posts. Any chance you'd be willing to help me out with a bot?

You arent interested at all with helping newbies Spencer, even in this thread all you've done is promote yourself, and from that, your book. You spam newbies asking for follows just as you're complaining about. Much hypocrasy.

Sorry, you feel that way. However, there are many people who appreciate what I do.

OMG, im new in this plataform so didnt that a lot of peope is spamming just to make money, what a disgusting action. Thanks for your help.

Blessings back!

This is such an helpful bot! this is something that really helps the new steem community and all the new users. Also that you will help reduce the spam is a great add-on.

I dont understand why you would want to abuse the introduce yourself tag. What is there to gain from that?

A lot of people do by posting in in hundreds of times hoping to get more follows from others that think they are "new" to Steemit.

It is a very popular tag to abuse.

Thanks for the heads-up, I'm new here and was not aware of that.

Goodluck with the naughty taggers 😀.
You probably have to raise tenthousands of people 😩

Thanks,

Just posting the list and sending out warnings has made a big difference already.

I have an off topic question. Since I'm following you I have been wondering how did you manage to get upvotes for so many of your comments?
Not sure if it is for all your comments, but I think I saw it for all replies towards me.

Check my blog on getting votes. (rock the vote part 1)

@introbot, @bycoleman,I think that it is great what you are doing. Please permit me to point out that you left out an e in Steemians in the description in the header.

Thank you and welcome.

And thank you even more for the spelling catch!

Blessings.

You're welcome

I like your initiative. I'm totally new to Steemit - wrote my first post yesterday, and it would be nice to be at a place with lots of good, original content to read.

Welcome to Steemit from Indonesia, this is an amazing platform for creativity and imagination. Share, comment and make friends

people have many sides to get to know, introduceyourself is showing everytime what else or more you are. I think the tag must been seen much more common as a solicitation with one story to tell and that is it. What makes introduceyourself different as other tags? Why should you only use it once?

The platform is run by consensus not censorship. Basically what works will be accepted and what does not will be flagged.

If everyone used this tag for every post they did relating to themselves, then the tag would be useless for welcoming new Steemians.

If this platform is going to survive the masses then we have to make sure it has quality material properly categories.

You can see my articles on this if you are interested.

do not take me wrong, I do understand your point but I do not agree with it. I will have to keep myself in :-) When I came on to steemit and introduced myself, i had 1 reaction. Nothing that helped me, the last times I got help offered from bots and persons and sites i could visit. So I really still like to see what people answer on the post introduceyourself.

Sure, we can disagree. If I am an not in the consensus I will begin to get flagged. If you are not in the consensus, you will begin to get flagged.

Be blessed and much success!

thank you for reply anyway :-) BB

wonderful work, today is my first day here .

Great news!!I am a beginner in tags but I think I can do it better. Thank you for your "welcome" and we wait for the next news.
