Steemit Has Its Own Group of Censors

RAW pastbin:

The Steemit @Blacklist uses a range of metrics to determine who’s a repeat offender of plagiarism, hate speech, bullying, ongoing power-abuse and so on. The Blacklist is computer-generated and is updated irregularly to make sure bad behaving accounts get a quick flag so that other upvote-bots can avoid upvoting the blacklisted accounts and simply skip to the next post. The @blacklist-project is a much wider and further stretching authority than any of the singular up or downvoting guilds currently running on steemit, it is also complimentary to current projects in the same genre which are to keep the steem-blockchain unattractive for scammers, spammers and miserable trolls who are caught bullying or go after steemians in a power-abusive behaviour and so forth and so on.

The @blacklist account is a very serious project who aim to grow over the years with supporting bots and guilds respecting the black flag as the black flag is computer-generated by a popular opinion from a wide range of always active members of the community.

There are one way to get off the blacklist once you are on it, and that is to change your behavior from evil to good over your next 40 posts. Once you have reached that number you must send 40 STEEM to the @blacklist account with “REVIEW” in the memo. Someone from our staff will then manually look at your blog within the next 24-48 hours and remove you from the list if your account now qualifies for it.

The Blacklist contains between 200-500 accounts at any given time. The list grows or shrinks depending on user behavior (1) and user-reaction (2).

The above pastebin script comes from the group of Steemit blockchain users calling themselves “blacklist-a” And as you can see at the lower end of the script their is an extortion payment you must make to be removed from said blacklist. This is even worse than a damn Facebook or twitter ban. At least with a ban of those two platforms you can usually find another platform to voice your opinion without any “financial” damage.

I never thought I would see this but yes it’s there and it’s real because I saw these assholes downvote an innocent video that I posted from my own computer. And with those downvotes and dislikes, there was no money for curation rewards on my post. Along with the blacklist asshole group you are also kicked in the teeth by a bot called “cheetah” and another called “steemcleaners”. The issues with these other two are they attatch themselves to your posts as comments and they upvote your posts with very little to no “Steem Power”. This will keep your post from really generating a good value of curation rewards.

If you’re interested in joining the steemit blockchain, I suggest doing a Google Search and watch some of the videos and get a much clearer understanding of what you’re jumping into.

How to Secure the Best Possible Deal For Your New Domain

How to find a great domain deal

You’ve set up your new business and everything is ready to go. You’ve got your trademark and your LLC and everything else you need to jump into the arena. There’s only one more thing that you need to take care of. You need to get an official company website for your new business so that all of your potential customers can quickly and easily find you. This is the most important aspect of 21st century business strategy, so it isn’t an area that you can skimp or cut corners on. The sooner you get your business on the web, the sooner you can expect the profits to roll in.

You’ll First Need to Reserve a Name For Your Domain

The first thing you need to do is get a quality domain name for your site. This is a move that takes in several aspects of modern business operation. The thing that you most need to keep in mind at all times is that the name you give to your new domain will do more than simply furnish the name of the URL that people will type into the search bar to find you on the web. It will also be the cornerstone of your public reputation. The name that you give to your domain will name and consequently define your brand in the eyes of people who are now getting their first impression of you.

Reserving a Name For Your Domain Is Easier Than Ever

As far as the mechanical operation of reserving a name for your new domain goes, it’s easier to do than ever before. This is largely due to the recent proliferation of service providers. These providers come in all sizes, shapes, and levels of reliability and professional. The trick will be to sign on the dotted line with the provider whose offer will best meet your personal needs. You’ll need to do a bit of research on the web to find out which one this will be. Once you do, it’s time to weigh a number of further considerations so that you can be sure your needs are met.

What Qualities Should You Look For in a Hosting Services Provider?

There are a number of very important qualities that you need to look for in order to be sure that you are getting the best possible deal for your dollar. Reliability and availability are the first order of business. You will need to be able to contact your provider at a moment’s notice – at any and all times of the day or night – when you spot a nasty glitch or security error. Whether they are big or small, these glitches will affect the quality of your website. If they are noticed by the public and your provider does nothing to fix them, they can lead to serious damage for your brand.

The Time to Reserve a Name For Your Domain Is Now

The sooner you choose a name for your domain and reserve it as your own, the better. This is the first step in getting your business on the web and establishing your brand. You can rely on professional aid and counsel from a reputable provider in order to help you meet this goal.

How to get the most out of an online e-commerce shopping application

Using Your Shopping Cart

Effectively When you go to your favorite grocery store, little is more annoying than getting a shopping cart with wobbly wheels and one that squeaks like a laughing hyena. Such an occurrence really puts a damper on the entire shopping experience. The same can be said for online shopping carts. If they are clunky and lacking in functionality, the entire shopping experience is cheapened to the point that all but your most loyal of customers will go elsewhere. Consider the following ways to use your ecommerce shopping cart software more effectively and gain customers as a result.

Provide Vivid Descriptions and Pictures

If your site contains few to no pictures, it will be difficult to convince consumers to take you very seriously. Consumers want to see what they are purchasing. Since it is not possible to feel the physical merchandise being offered online, pictures are the next best thing. Your shopping cart should contained vivid descriptions and digital quality pictures that encapsulate the true essence of what it is that you are selling. If you can do that right within your shopping cart, visitors will just need to click a simple button to add it to the cart. It really is that simple, and then you will see your sales increase as a result.

Make Payment a Snap

Imagine filling your cart up in the grocery store only to get to the checkout line and find no cashiers available to help you. Perhaps they are all on break or they just did not show up for work. Whatever the reason, you will be tempted to leave the store without your items given the level of frustration that you feel. Likewise, your online customers will leave a full online cart of items without paying for them if you do not provide them with an easy checkout option. This means that you need to have a payment channel that is simple to use and does not require a lot of time. The quicker and more seamless you can make the process, the better off you will be in the end.

Integrate the Cart Into the Site Itself

Visitors to your site need to be able to find the shopping cart easily, no matter what page they might navigate to. The best way to do this is to make sure the software that you use actually integrates the cart right into the website itself. This will enable the consumer to click on the cart at any time and see what they have put in there. This should be easily updated so that visitors can change the quantity ordered on the go, as well as delete any items that are no longer needed. Again, the key here is to make this entire process as easy as possible. Do not make consumers go to a third party website in order to checkout. It is not professional and will cost you customers in the long run. These are just four of the many ways that you can use an online shopping cart to your advantage. Remember that the key is to make the cart functional and easy to use. This is a tool that you have at your disposal as a business owner, so make sure that you use it wisely. If you do, your business will almost certainly grow as a result.

Who else has the same thoughts about mundane tasks

I’m not necessarily the type of person to point out my faults to others, but in this case I’m going to make an exception. I’m lazy. I mean really lazy. I’d prefer if someone else could take all my mundane work and just do it for me.

I know I’m not the only one – that’s why there’s so many different applications out there for automating work. And I think that’s a good thing, because if you want to focus on growing your business (and your bottom line), you need to be spending your time wisely.

While we’ve done everything we can to make fast and easy to use, today you have the opportunity to take it that last step and go completely hands off. When you select the Lazy option, you literally don’t do anything at all other than put in the links you want shared. That’s it. Other users will push your links out to the social media sites, and you collect the social buzz.

Nintendo Swings positive Thanks to Switch Console

Japanese video game giant Nintendo returned to the black for the quarter ended in June thanks to the success of its new Switch console.

Nintendo recorded an operating profit of $144.95 million (5.13 billion yen) for its fiscal first quarter, compared with a year-ago loss of 24.5 billion yen. Revenue jumped 150 percent to $1.37 billion (154.07 billion yen), the company said Wednesday.

The Kyoto-based company sold 1.97 million Switch consoles in the quarter, taking its total sales to 4.7 million units. Nintendo has been unable to keep up with demand for the hybrid home-portable console, and stores in Japan have been operating lotteries for customers to get the chance to purchase one.

The success of the console, along with that of mobile game Pokemon Go, have helped push Nintendo’s stock price up 60 percent over the last year. Its market value exceeded that of Sony Corp. last month. However, Sony stock has also been on a tear — the company has more recently pushed its market capitalization to around $51 billion, compared with $45 billion for Nintendo.

Nintendo is forecasting sales of 10 million Switch consoles for the full fiscal year to March 2018 and operating profit of 65 billion yen ($580 million at current rates).

The company was late to move into mobile gaming, but revenue from titles including Super Mario Run, along with IP licensing, rose 450 percent to $80 million (9 billion yen) for the latest quarter.

Nintendo’s stock closed up 1.3 percent at 35,770 yen ($320) in Tokyo before the earnings announcement.
