MinnowBooster has a new trick up its sleeve - Mentionator

in #minnowbooster3 years ago (edited)

Ever wanted to know when you're mentioned by another user on Steem? Mentionator is a brand new feature from Minnowbooster that does exactly that!

Ears ringing? Want to know whether people are being naughty or nice? Give the new @mentionator service a go and find out!

Here are a few mentions that our lead developer @reggaemuffin has received in the past few days...


This is brand new service so we will be constantly updating and improving it - let us know if there is anything else you'd like to receive notifications about!

Just insert your Steem account into this url and open it in your internet browser -

Mentionator is a subscription service costing 1 STEEM or SBD per month. If you don't want to pay, you can still see your last three mentions, but premium users get the last 14 days worth of mentions and can even enter their email to receive email notifications when new mentions come in!

Just send 1 STEEM or 1 SBD to the mentionator Steem account to get started with these awesome premium features.

Don't want to subscribe for the whole month? Just send 0.50 SBD or STEEM and you can try the service out for 14 days.

Provide us with feedback

We are happy to hear your feedback about where we can improve.

Great idea for a tool, I will check it out. Is there also plans for some kind of notification when someone follows? Would be nice two find out who just followed in just a click.

The esteem app has that. But we can surely do email notifications for events you want :)

Would you like to get emails immediately or a summary each day?

I guess the best would be if users could decide as @thecryptodrive suggested. But for me it would work with a summary each day. Fantastic response time on my comment, thanks!

Thank you a lot for your feedback! Mentionator will most likely evolve into a full suite of events you want to be notified of. All feedback helps to see what is needed the most at the moment :)

I was actually wondering if we can get SP delegation from @minnowbooster for a limited fee or start free for a limited time then charges fee.. It would be very helpful for minnows to boost themselves up a bit. I know there are open requests, but I don't have the SBD to pay as a new user.
Anyway, Thanks @reggaemuffin for the brilliant bot :)

Sorry, I take that back. Just found that I can lease SP from @minnowbooster.
Thanks again :)

Look at that support! straight onto it!

How about each user can decide, I think LinkedIn has those options.

Yeah follow notifications is a great idea for opt in ... oh and lets get nasty and get un-follows too! @reggaemuffin

The esteem app notifies you of follows and unfollows. It also notifies you of mentions in both posts and comments but it fails to load the post if you are not following the account where you were mentioned, like one of those "daily pay out ranks by category" posts. Technically you could use the esteem app to get the notification, and then if your quick about it use the free service being offered here to see the post. I did that just this morning for my wife's account.

Good idea! I'll probably add the whole range of events and users can select which ones they want.

I am thinking this will be the best way to reach to whales or steemit board to listen to us when we have issues we need to solve. As new user, there are multiple difficulties that face us and it would be great to have someone to listen and response too.
Thanks again :)

According to this post https://steemit.com/steemwatch/@void/steemwatch-update-2017-08-22
You will soon be able to get these notifications for free on telegram.

soon™️ (until then you need to set up a slack server or give away your steemit.chat password it seems).

Actually, come to think of it @clayop already developed one for telegram called noteefi. No charge for that either.


Cool, will try that out :)

Yes, I'm using Noteefi for a couple of months now and very happy for what it does. But it still have no way to give notifications for Follows & Unfollows.

Mentionator will soon add telegram support and follow support. Many people requested it so that will be our first addition after daily summaries.

The more functionality the better :)

I get those on my steemwatch app.

Sadly noteefi does not show you mentions in comments, only in posts. But I have to say, their service is pretty cool!

That's a cool idea, will add that to the todo list :)

Awesome to see suggestions being acted on so quickly. :)

Nice:-) Thanks!

Nice comment @kerlund74 ...if you get more info remember to share wirh me...tks;)

I will try to remember that @kenhudoy, thanks!

Welcome and do find time to check my blog posts

Use esteem app from playstore

Its hard for a new steemian to pay for it.

I checked this out and I am considering the premium features! Seems cheap and price can only go up.

Here's an upvote with enough to try the service :)

No no I want to help him. <3

giving you back 5c

This act of generosity is awesome to see. :)

Well now, you made your case. I'll apply later today.

Buzzbeer! Pop a brewski and watch the mentions roll in buddy.

Oh wow, talk about service with a smile. :D

Here's a service that does the same thing for free.


Sure but you have to keep that page open for it to work. Mentionator works in the background and never misses a mention.

No you don't have to keep it open at all. It is a notification service for whatever you want notifications for including menions of any accounts you choose. Real time notification of ALL your mentions. I've been using it for a year.

Yeah I tried it when I started on steem set up many things but never got any email. Do you have to create a slack channel to actually get notifications? Or how does it work?

I set up a slack channel yes. I spoke to the developer about making it work on discord and he said if there is a demand he will be adding it to the program.

Yeah I think most users don't want to set up a discord/slack server or so. They just want to get an email when something happens. Or a website where they can check on what happened.

I like that steemwatch offer many different types of events to be notified of, so I will most likely add support for most of these too. Supporting slack/discord/telegram push is not that hard, I.ll look into that too.

I would hate to get an email for every notification personally. That's why I have all my notifications set up on one app that I can mute and check in on at any time.

I have huge respect for the many developers of apps for the STEEM blockchain. Mainly because they invest their own time, building these apps for the people to use freely, only in the hopes that it will increase the chance of their investments making them good returns. By improving user satisfaction, they help grow the platform and usually that's all they care about, based on the lack of charges and using rewards from other stakeholders as payment.

No offense, but being upvoted at 100% by the account makes this look like another advertisement on the trending page. Why not deny payout if you are seeking "customers" for a service that could have been offered for free like many others before you?

Good service, but I don't need this.

good post

just wow.... So with premium I can get like emails? :D that's next gen. Keep good work guys, I'm as beginner just gonna understand how minnowboost works and

Yeah if you have mentionator premium and I comment with @denis231 then you got an email saying:

@reggaemuffin mentioned you:
Yeah if you have mentionator premium and I comment with @denis231
click here to see it :)

It's similar to YouTube feature, but on email :) Yeah it helps to communicate more with people here. Does it work on dtube too?

It works on steem, so all comments will work, regardless of the commenter using steemit busy esteem or dtube :)

my music is the 🏀Sack of the world

I have been waiting for this. I cant stand when I get a notification that I was mentioned , and cant see what was said.

We will even show you a preview of the part where you were mentioned ;) And we tell you if someone edits your mention in later, so you will never miss it.

Glad we can be of service! :)

Nice gonna try this soon

Damn, that's a great tool! Really improving the overall experience!

Awesome, love to see the freebie 'trial' version that let you see a few mention just to get a taste of this service. If I like this I will definitely subby up. Thanks for sharing!!

The free version is really useful if you want to check the newest mentions on the go without being logged in.

I am using the email notifications and I have to say they are really helpful. Kinda want to pat myself on the back for developing this but that would be kind of weird :D

not weird at all, there's even a device developed for that


How about I give you a pat on the back instead? Pat pat Job well done. I like it.

Perhaps being able to whitelist / blacklist the email notifs per user would be good.

Just incase you get a spammer or troll hitting you up hard. :)

Good idea, that definitely comes on the list!

I'm definitely going to try the Premium Version :) Really curious to see how it works as it's for sure a missing function on Steemit so far.

Awesome, you will be among our first customers, honoured to have you.

Customer Nr. 3 in case I count correctly without the staff ;) Sounds good somehow. But now I really have to check it out in Detail :)

Give it a test run.

Fantastic update, thanks @minnowbooster for this and looking forward to using it from here on. Cheers

Thanks, will be using it as it will help alot because sometimes it's hard to find mentions on busy steemit platform. Thanks again

Does this mean Steemit's Reply Alerts will never return?

Not sure. We are not steemit so we cannot say what they plan. We just want to alleviate the pain points the steemit UI currently has :)

That's up to Steemit, we are not affiliated with Steemit Inc, we are @buildteam Blockchain Innovators. :)

Okay... Good Job...

Awesome idea! I will check it out. I like the follow notifications. I miss soooo many!

Was just wondering if there is a service available to track your mentions and voila !!

Something for notifications on follows, upvotes would also be great. If there is already something available please let me know.

We got many users requesting these and we will add them soon :)

This is the tool I didnt know I was looking for! 1 Steem a month is a small price to pay to make sure you keep up with the people who are talking about you.

I'll be checking it out later today!

Thanks @minnowbooster

Thank you! If you notice any features missing while you use it, tell us :) We will improve the service with your feedback.

Totally! The freemium version is also more than enough for minnows like me :) Going to check this out right now.

@kerlund74 - agreed, it would be nice if we had something little notification like pretty much every other social media platform out there..

Until we DO have something like that, I've bookmarked that link (obvi with my own user name) for convenient access. Now all I've gotta do is get people to start mentioning me :P

Hey @jobsande thank you for your feedback :)

Now you got a mention ;) If you miss any other functionality, please tell us and we will get to work. steemit is sadly not good at telling you what happens and we want to alleviate that pain a bit.

Haha cheers! Yeah it's ironic how Steemit is incredibly groundbreaking in some ways, but as it's technically in "Beta" I've found it lacks many of the features we take for granted on other social media platforms, plus it's not nearly as polished or user friendly - especially for newbies. I'm betting that will change though as time goes on... in part thanks to you :) @reggaemuffin

Super cool feature if you ask me! I love the 14 days thing.

Great ideal and tool! Another tool I would like to have is to see who resteemed your post.

Thank you for the feedback, that is a great idea! That one definitely comes on the list!

Informasi yang sangat bermanfaat untuk para pengguna steemit...


I am new in this platform. Hopefully someday I will grab what you have mentioned in the message. I hope that will be a great service. Cheers

Welcome to Steem, have fun!

eSteem App already does that for free...and has more features. But that's cool, just another tool to play with.

Interesting service for the people who are serious at steemit. However, a free, less prolific service for minnow like me will be helpful and increase exposure.

Very neat. This helpful information is what I want to see. Thanks.

Very nice.

Wow minnowbooster is cool. The first time i heard about it i was how they for real .i tested them and lo and behold they deliver . i must subscribe for the premium package to enjoy some cool benefits but i am scared if they fail me but for my curosity will try it.... Thumb up guys...

I have found the leasing and rental service to be awesome, I can only wait and see to see this one evolve further. Pretty exciting! :)

Support is great as well. Which is nice.

One question what is more important to you time or money ? Think before you say

I can always make money but I can't make time. :)

For me, time has a value. So paying 1 SBD to save countless hours of searching is totally worth it for me.

same vison bro

As I'm also Jain like you so Time is Money.

I would take time over money anytime. :)

I see you have to upvote this page before you can get to that page. At least I had to. It's all good now.

Hi John, I'm not sure what went wrong, but you don't have to up vote a post to click on a link :)

Few things are better than scrolling down your post and seeing a GOAT pic pop up.

I know right!

Cool.Thanks for sharing

Great piece of information. Thanks

One question. If I delegate x SP for a month and in last week use up all my voting power will the payouts of that posts/comments I voted on in the last week decrease when my lease is over?

Hi Runicar, no I don't think so. I believe the strength of the vote is locked in when it is placed :)

ouh no.. that's so amazing baby
thank you very much for this post
it really helped me
please help me too to vote my post

good post, you best steemit


Wow thats amazing. Looks like a great service. Wil be looking into this.

Hi, your voting power have been steady around 60% the last 24hours.

Could you tage a break, to get it up again?

Hi, yes it has been pretty solid around 60% for at least a few days now. I will have a chat to the team about putting the bot to rest for a couple of days.

Great Thanks :-)

No worries :)

Going to have to power STEEM to

Hey I am @ASMSayeam, this is going to be viral over here at steemit I think, I like it and I will definitely use it. Would you please help me to use it?

Hey mate, what function did you need help with? Mentionator? Come over to our Discord server and our support staff will be happy to help :)

Following and voting you my hero
I want to get followers as you if you can resteem my post or tag me in any post and invite the people to follow me

Minnowbooster Good Luck

I love the minnowbooster service. I use it a lot. If there were no limits, I´d use it much more. Thank you very much for this great service.

A small suggestion that would make my life easier. Since I do things manually, it is difficult to keep track of a long list of constraints. Minnowbooster has a daily limit of 1, and a weekly limit of 5. If you changed the weekly limit to 7, I would just use your service once a day, and forget about the constraints. Is this possible?

Good,,,i like post you

actually keep on

what about support for dolphins!?

what dolphins?! /sarcasm

We don't block you from our services if you have too much steem power

Very nice addition to the project. Keep up the food work.

this is amazing...upped

Brilliant, exceptional idea for a device, i can test it out.

Great idea for a tool, I will check it out :)

good post :)

Ok, so 2 times now i have tried to use the upvote bot and i keep getting delegated money. I put my posts url in the memo and it keeps giving me SP delegation. Whats up with this??? I want to use this bot but i must give up unless this is resolved.

Hi mate, that sounds like you are sending STEEM and not SBD. To use our voting pot you send SBD, to request an SP lease, you send STEEM. Sorry about the mix up :)

Fantastic tips guys! Was wondering if there was a less complicated way to get boosted?

,Cool posting on steemit

Great idea

upvoted and followed you upvote me

Good idea, that definitely comes on the list

Like it, keep up the good work ! 😁👍

That some perfect way to do it.
I wish there had a chance to know everything summarise in the notification tools.

Hi @thirdeye7 what specific event would you like to receive notifications about?

Good job! Thank you for sharing this @minnowbooster

Usuful tool. Thank you.

Keep up the great work!

Disclaimer: I am just a bot trying to be helpful.

Great post. RT

Very interesting idea. I just tried it and found where my account was mentioned. Nothing major for now but I hope eventually I will have more mentions in a good way :)
I think the most that could use this service are the famous people or those who made lots of enemies for themselves.
All in all is a good service. Thanks for the updates :)

It's pretty interesting even if you aren't famous, I tried it out and found three times I'd been mentioned that I'd completely missed!

Am giving my 5 star, Definitely making sense, You guys keeps amazing me nice work though. Will check it out

Wow amazing service @minnowbooster. Going to try premium features

Thanks mate, good to have you on board :)

A very interesting post and could be interested in my heart when I saw it.

great, minnow keeps bringing out stuffs that makes been on this platform great
