RE: For PH community members only: few words about our curation trail
I think that it must not always be easy for you to decide how to place the upvotes. You have a lot of tools at your disposition and you juggle them quite well. I quite liked the idea of @juanmolina to have a kind of scale or ranking for the users to determine what kind of upvote they could get. Such a ranking would also allow to direct people how they should behave.
Just an idea how this could look like:
|1||Ph-fund benificary||by project.hope lower than 30%|
|2||Ph-fund benificary+no powerdown+at least 3 months in program||by project.hope 30 - 50%|
|3||Ph-fund benificiary+no powerdown+following curation trail or delegation + at least 6 months in program||by curation trail + project hope|
I honestly think that it is quite difficult to measure interaction of users and I would also avoid defining a level regarding that because it often only generates low quality comments when they are forced.
Of course there could be more levels and there should probably be a cap on how many posts are posted within the community per user. If this is defined somewhere, when asked you could always tell a user that he is in level 1 and therefore he needs to work his way up to the next level to get higher upvotes.
I think this would add a lot of clarity for everybody and for you it would be easier to argument the whys and hows.
No Powerdown policy
I think that this should be a center stone of our community. The more the users continue the grow, the more inflation we manage to capture and I think that you are totally right to encourage people not to power down.
Have a nice day!
