Proposal: eosio

Getting users with high rep is not that easy.

I would strongly suggest NOT taking the actions outlined here. The suggestions are INADVISABLE.

The activities suggested in this thread will only hurt the chances of this site being launched, but could potentially get you suspended or to lose your account.

First, directing users how to vote in any capacity is always a terrible, terrible idea. Voting is supposed to be organic, not targeted. Communities are very protective of this and will feel compelled to "right that wrong" by counteracting it with down-votes (you saw that first hand).

Second, the system has process in place to detect a level of disproportionate voting between groups of users and will remove that activity automatically. At best, those votes will simply be reversed; at worst, you'll get a nastygram from a moderator which may result in a suspension or removal of your account.

Can we post an eos question and link back to this proposal?

Unfortunately, no. We cannot allow solicitation of users or advertising of proposals across the sites. With so many proposals vying for attention, folks soliciting support on other sites became unworkable pretty fast. That type of linking or similar activity will be flagged and removed.

Here is the CORRECT way to overcome this hurdle

To create a new site, Stack Exchange require a certain level of experience among the participants in using this software and working with the community. To accomplish this, there are many sites you can gain experience with to help move this proposal forward. Step away from EOS.IO evangelizing for a bit and get to know some of our other communities:

List of Stack Exchange Subjects

With subjects as diverse as "Pets", "Photography" "Outdoors", and "Sports", there's almost certainly a community here you can get to know and share your interests.

  • Ok - I think this is clear - it will be good to have a well rounded set of eosio fanatics anyway. Thanks for the advice, will share

  • "Voting is supposed to be organic, not targeted." I have screen shots of you serial downvoting dozens of questions at a time on Area51 proposals right before they were about to reach the commitment phase. Then when it got close to reaching commitment phase again, you did the same thing again. Is that what you mean by "organic" voting? Commented Jan 25, 2020 at 19:11

    @user1271772 Near the end of Definition, every proposal undergoes a “Final Evaluation” by the Community Team. During that time, unfit questions are closed and poor question might receive a down-vote. I tend to look at all the questions in a proposal during the evaluation rather than voting throughout the definition process. That is completely normal. Targeted serial voting is about targeting an individual; it’s not about down-voting multiple poor example questions in a proposal. That is not what serial down-voting means. Sorry about the confusion. Commented Jan 26, 2020 at 3:22
  • Nice to see you back here @Robert Cartaino. Commented Jan 26, 2020 at 6:35

I was wondering about this myself and tried to join some other groups but I am only really interested in eos at the moment.

Is it allowed to post an eos question and then include a link back to the proposal? I think if we post a bunch of the top rated questions on the main site we should be able to get a bit of interest


Probably using the tag in StackOverflow for Q/A while we get the approval from Area51 helps users with low rep to pump their numbers.

The example questions can be replicated in StackOverflow and then invite our community to answer them. Right now there is now way to answer the proposed questions, so using the tag WHILE we get to the 100 users with +200 re points is a good option. IMHO.

This is an example of the How are transactions feeless for end users on eosio? question.

    WOW, they are downvoting my question there, destroying my rep in the process. If we do this, it could be counter productive.

  • Aaaaand it got deleted. "this question as off-topic because it isn't about programming or software development. This would probably be more appropriate on a crypto currency site"

  • I'm trying to find a StackExchange site were that question would not be off-topic and I haven't find any. Ideas?
