RE: Reviewing websites for $ / Gamification without $ incentives

in #gamification2 years ago

Didn't know that website, it looks nice and I might actually try it out.

For as far as engagement goes, the old non-linear reward system was imo way better. Nowadays it's impossible to upvote or support smaller accounts and actually create a community around a specific topic (like betting). Everything seems to be centered around bending your content toward what curation groups upvote with most content being just about the platform itself. Being unable to reward comments also doesn't help.

You could say that the non-linear rewards fight abuse, but I see it more like they shifted it. Removing the reward pool all together making Hive proof of stake working with some kind of tipping system is something I see as a possible solution even though it won't be a popular one. Most of my own daily engagement has pretty moved to discord and doesn't need any rewarding.

I have been using publish0x which has in my view a way better (fairer) reward model, much better content, actual readers (often 1000-3000 views).

It's still possible, but you'll have to go the hard way unless community members have, let's face it, a boatload of HP.

It's good to have tipping on the peakd interface, I've been trying that out.

I do have a publish0x account, but haven't spent any time there - I don't really feel like moving house again for a while.
