Noticed anything different?

I sure have.

It has passed the 24-hour mark for the @vyb.curation voting trail setup and we have already made some significant waves on the https://www.proofofbrain.io front-end (how refreshing!).

Alright, the front-end does need some work (like us all), but this doesn't really matter if you're heading over there to check out the content on the main page (and the NFT's every now and then... https://www.proofofbrain.io/nfts/, excellent work with your POBPunks @jaxsonmurph!).

Let's hold up for a minute though... I flicked on ecency this morning to check notifications and was greeted by our first great debate within the VYB Curation Project (have you read the post? what do you think?).

Before any fingers are pointed, VYB curators have **no** guidelines, only their own judgement. So if you think you smell foul play, it's probably your own arse.

This being said, we have to discuss this as a community to see what solutions/precautions can be put in place for the curation model to prevent this potential form of upvote abuse from getting out of control.

I'll be calculating the amount of POB/VYB earned from the community accounts + delegated stake and I'll send it back to vyb.curation and vyb.pob. I'll use my own powerdown as a method for understanding the Curation Ignore List process.

That's all folks! Get some music into your ears to start the day and have a little dance in your bedroom/study/kitchen/garage/basement/garden/wherever the fuck you want!

Sort:  

Ooo yeah! Awesome way to start the day with some Noisia remixing!

Think I have missed the discussion elsewhere on the curation trail but if it's done manually and has a set of guidelines to follow and you met their criteria, I don't see a problem myself

Waddduuppp! Damn right, such a groove on that track!

URRRRRRR, manually? somewhat. guidelines? nope. criteria? 🤷‍♂️🤣

Have a gander at this mate! VYB Curation Project

HAPPY NEW YEAR! Hope you're having a cracking start to 2022 mate!

😂 I see, well, I just take the approach of being grateful for what I get. Post rewards seem to be random depending which way the wind blows!

Happy new year to you too mate! Hope 22 is a beast of a year for you!

Thank you @caluman the Pobpunks presale and launch went off pretty and there was lots of curiosity and buying !LOLZ but hey anything that creates a bit of banter and further engagement in the community is a win, win in my book.

I haven't read the debate post you mentioned yet, but I will be sure to drop over and check it out to see what all the fuss is about.

I look forward to reading about your findings after you power down to study the curation ignore list, that should be interesting.

Funky Track he he

@calumam, I sent you an $LOLZ on behalf of @jaxsonmurph
Use the !LOL or !LOLZ command to share a joke and an $LOLZ. (1/1)

That's the goal, the dominoes always seem to fall straight whenever the focus is genuinely on engagement and connectivity instead of hoovering up tokens.

I've sent a comment on the other post! 😎

The more that we can focus on the content and engagement the better it will be, too many focus on hoovering up tokens.

But it should never be the main focus, I mean who doesn't like to earn tokens, growing the community through engagement has it's own rewards and with it brings growth, followers and of course the desired tokens.

Hopefully more people we start to understand this. Cheers

I like the curation effort, but I wonder about some of the articles curated if the amount is too high? It's difficult to pin down as my tastes are different from others. I do like the consistency of the curation efforts though. I also like that those curating do recognize the low value of some articles by skipping them.

This is the benefit of the revolving curators. Each week there will be a different set of tastes being explored.

I'll also add, the @vyb.check process is very much in the early stages right now, so we don't have a dedicated on-chain process showing how the merit-based 100% vote from vyb.pob is being applied, although we are drafting the process off-chain at the moment to work out some kinks (also we're building up the habitual process that will be required for genuine input).


"Over-rewarding" feels like an old mentality from my point of view. What if it is viewed as over-distributing? Once the tokens are then paid out it makes more sense to look at how the tokens are held, sold, or transferred.

Surely the "over-rewarding" elements are only a huge concern when tokens are then dumped on the market creating market instability? Or if the tokens are concentrated to a specific account to generate a much larger staked account, which would then start to limit crowd wisdom in various ways?

With this being said, my philosophies and opinion about "Proof of Brain" (the concept) have definitely changed over the past month or so. I'm sure they'll change and evolve as time goes on too.

I do like the consistency of the curation efforts though. I also like that those curating do recognize the low value of some articles by skipping them.

Same here, it's still very very early days too. We have only had the curators active for 3-4 days. Once that first curation data post is up we'll start to see the cause and effect relationship for public accountability (something that is flaunted here on the blockchain, but rarely used as a sustainable method of self-regulation, think 24-hour news window, brush it under the rug).
