Exploring Steem Communities: Here's a Video of What's Possible, in case you Missed the Steemwave Radio Live Stream

in communities •  25 days ago 

crimsonclad-steem-communities-steemwave.jpg

Every weekend, I spend two hours on Saturday hanging out live, chatting with people from around the Steem ecosystem talking about technology, community, answering questions and facilitating discussion. This last week, it was all about Communities!

 
      There's a lot of laughing, a lot of swearing (I mean, my mouth... yikes) and a lot of really useful dialogue about whatever might be happening around the blockchain. Sometimes the shows trend to more technical, and sometimes it's a big gathering a friends chatting live about the thing they love and listening to some cool music. The show is widely shaped by you and what you think is important week to week.

By ultra popular demand, scroll down for a video of a recording of last week's show. You will see me break down a lot of the features and UI of upcoming Steem Communities, as well as show how easy it will be to make one of your own.

 
     You'll see the show is very conversational — everything is recorded on the fly and streamed live in real time while responding to the large group of live viewers who join in the discussion every week. I've cut out the licensed music, and some of the chitty chat we have each week that was very off topic to Communities. Here are some key points this video covers (among other things) if you want to scrub through and cherry pick information or your just curious what we talked about and explored on the Steemit UI:

✨Notifications
✨Friend Feeds
✨Community Feeds
✨Muting and Moderation
✨Gamification and Visible stats changes
✨Community Creation

Check out the Steemwave Radio Communities Episode video below:

Steemwave Radio is made possible by you!

 
      If you ever have some spare time and you want to meet a bunch of cool, dedicated Steemians, join in the dialogue, have a question you want to ask or a topic you want to get people chatting about, or maybe just want to hear a synthwave track or two, come hang out with me on MSPWaves for the live stream. It's a lot of fun and the dozens of participants each week make it a cool place to spend some time. You can learn more at MSPwaves.com or pop into the PALnet discord on Saturdays.

Are you a Steemwave attendee? Tell me more about how I can do better/be more interesting/more of what you want to see and hear. Thanks for riding the waves with me~

I wish all product demos were as entertaining as this one!

Communities are indeed a practical way to customize Steem. Another part that looks promising is the collective authority and localized social consensus. For example, the same wiki-objects on Waivio can appear different for members of different communities. For example, here in BC we refer to Coho salmon as Silver, while in Russia it is called Kizhutch. So, multiple communities can refer to the same thing with different names, yet knowledge can be aggregated from multiple communities. There are many other opportunities beyond that as well. Thanks for the insight!

cheers! the shows tend to get more entertaining by dint of the addition of alcohol~ but yes, you've got the real gist of it. Whether or not you're using the actual interface through one of the standard sites or not, the building blocks and features that hive makes possible that come together to create communities can also be leveraged into a number of other social applications. This is a big thing in terms of building a better experience for end users no matter how they may end up interacting with the chain!

I checked and @pussyfart is available as an account. :) Suprised that dporn didn't pick that up.

LMAO! I wondered who would be the first to check. You're a scholar and a gentleman~

Loved your show im going to create a community ,all about hip hop and rapp. As im associated with the promoter and we are releasing a book on it. Www.the geneandersonstory.com and would love to share about hip hop like you did with heavy metal community.

So glad you posted this! Lots of great information about something we all are really curious about and looking forward to. I appreciate you doing it!

you are awesome. I fully acknowledge that much of this may actually be irrelevant very quickly, BUT the conversation around what's possible and why certain decisions may have been made was a really, really good one. I love the laughing and the drinking and the clapping and the explaining but in general, it's the participants who help guide me towards the stuff we should be talking about~ it's like people who gather in communities work, or something

Great work! we need to have more people doing these radio shows! Like Joe Rogan said, we all can do them and then we have more variety, and even if no one listens, we should teach steemians how to make short 2 min to 5 min podcasts like the everythingeos guys do, and recap helpful news about the steem blockchain. Maybe we can get delegation to do it.

Thanks! I love talking steem and tech and community with people, its my happy place. You make a really good point about creating more useful, purpose driven 2-5 min clips, though. These shows are super fun live, when everyone is in the same chat and it is happening organically, but this long format is really difficult to take in after the fact.

I'll think more about doing short free use, rewards declined video clips~ cheers!

Thanks for this.

Are you a Steemwave attendee? Tell me more about how I can do better/be more interesting/more of what you want to see and hear.

Can you talk more slowly and make it more breathy?

I started this video on double speed cause it is 1 hour 20. That didn't work :) Love you Crimmy!

I fully, fully recognize that exactly zero people want to listen to me for an hour. When I get a chance I will edit in time stamps to try to make this less excruciating for people trying to learn. The problem with creating these shows live and on the fly is that they really aren't very good for later consumption. Sorry!

I mean, I pretty much said the same thing to Gandalf... as if I weren't fast, confusing and annoying enough, LOL!

I indeed don't want to listen to you for an hour - I want to listen to you for two! ;-)

Lol smoothycat, more like~

#thingsnoonehassaidever

The hour that I cut out was all synthwave music and a LOT of audience chatter about swoop's butt, so the one hour is probably for the best. 😂

run it at 1/2 speed :P

:3

We used to do Crimrotica when we went into overtime, where I would read absolutely horrifically unsexy things (think, Vogon poetry or Data's Ode to Spot) in a sexy voice. Much like anything, it pretty much immediately went too far and we are why we can't have nice things. On the plus side, Communities are nice things!

youre always free to post crimrotica on the soon to have decentralized age verification https://Asstoken.app which will be on eos and telos soon, EOS ASS first EOS Adult Service System ASS. .... where i hope to have a system better than dporn, where people have to age verify somehow..... i wont really launch it fully on newdex until i have a nice white paper made with SERIOUS effort made to keep things classy and progressive, with custom nitrous theme that we can do on nitrous github on steem egngine gityhub by @eonwarped yeah yeah when hes free maybe in a fewe years lol i can pay him with ass token sales ive been getting,m to actually change the appearance of the front end, so it doenst look like any otehr tribe site, and communiies will give me teh ability o do so much more, it will also help DDATE the social media blockchain dating site i have http://ddate.co steem/ telos eosio first dating app like tindr + bitcoin woohooo DATE token on steem engine today lolozlzozl

DATING APPS should pay YOU NOT the otehr way around... is my slogan (e can prtomote Crimrotica AND grimrotica from grimoire the streamer girl from https://iceposeidon.live (OH BY THE WAY im modifying @tipitbot on discoird to add TTS and media donations so u can STREAM on twitch youtube @vimm.tv and have DONATIONS just leik STREAMLABS which uses icky icky paypal, now WE take back the whole on stream donatioin world DUHH :D every stream will accept DONATIONS in their OWn token AND that TOKEN WILL ALWAYS be backed by ON SCREEN DONATIONS which teh streamer can ALWAYS pay back by actually WORKING doing streams, and letting suers spend them , if they have prices too expensive for donations less people usethe token etc, and if the streamer gets popular users can use the token tio buy ADS and partnerships as well, and merch so eveyrthing streamers and yioutubers sell can be done IN their own steem engine communities SMT token.... and tipped over @banjo bot :D over discord :D to play a Text to Speech or Yoyutube Video as a TIP teh way streamers get tipped using streamlabs and paypal. I made the system token symbol CASH and its called @streamcash

while its small ill use a community moderation system, and just ban anyone posting "illegal porn" lol i dont wanna be in charge of a porn site tho so maybe ill make it nudes and erotica, and steer away from hardcore stuff, io wanna just have a fun NSFW reddit style thing

but yeah you brought up erotica lol

I cant stop people from viewing the site underage just from posting, right? Until we have a way to do, like, private anonymous erotica and nudes site for peopel in countries where maybe lgbt stuff is illegal oh im sure some government organization would fund us for the human rights of allowing people around teh world to have access to sexual expression tools online lol we can TOO have nice things this is a freedom of speech and human psychology matter

yeaaah maaaan grooovey dduuude we can get like funding from the council of Furries and they can make sure we have the right to express our furry manga and get paid for it. lol

seriously manga coin and anime coin those two, i see big tyhings hapening for @mangacoin

the ability to make comic books and manga seems easy enough and steem can share it in a post and front ends can be taylored for comic books with built in pdf viewer LOL telos is doing that with DSTORS so yeha we could do all sorts of cool stuff fcross chain soon with communities

Anyway i only wrote this loing comment because i didnt see many comments heer, steem needs help ghetting users!

IU have 2000+ STeem invite codes if anyoen needs a free account and u feel you shouldnt have to pay for itr because ur gonna give it to someone who need sit or use it for a serious project iur gonna invest time in helping add value to steem, just ask me on mah telegram name ackz aim on the steem network telegram or https://t.me/sandiegocoin and ill give u free steem invite codes ( https://invite.steem.ninja undergoing update but it will be back

never

Hello there!

This is my first reply on this site and I must say I'm still a bit confused on how everything works. I watched your video on YouTube and am excited about some of the changes that you described that look like their coming down the pipe. Communities sound like a good start to helping folks make their way around the site.

I gave you an upvote for this post, but I'm not sure how upvoting and downvoting really works on the site. Does it cost Steem for me to give out upvotes? I still have 25 Steem from when I initially signed up.

Oh I also subscribed to you on YouTube, in the hopes that you'll have more Steem community related videos.

Thanks for your contribution.

I would love to chat with you about this, and I'm really excited to know that you found the video helpful. I will think more about what sorts of short, easy to consume content would be useful- so if you have ideas, I'm all ears! I talk every week live (and you're welcome to join if it suits you) but I recognize short, 5 min snippet videos that are lots of fun and very clearly explained would be great versus these 1 or 2 hour behemoths. Maybe you and some others can help direct me towards the most important stuff.

As for your question... it won't cost you Steem or Steem power to make up and downvotes, so don't worry about that. A very, very simplified version of the system is that you can make up and downvotes each day, but their impact (ie, how much rewards they allocate) will depend on how much Steem power you have and how many votes in total you have made, as well as a few other larger ecosystem factors. If you make lots and lots, they get weaker and will take some time to replenish! This is a very incomplete explanation, and there's a lot of nuance that can trip you up early on, but I don't want to overwhelm you. It seems so insane when you start but it quickly just becomes something you will innately understand and not think much about, I promise.

The gist of what you're doing now is a great start -find stuff you like, make a comment on it, and upvote it if you think it deserves some rewards! Based on how you learn and how headlong you want to dive in, I can recommend many different resources for you. Something that exists right now already might be a great start. There are lots of them out there, so don't feel like you have to check them all out at once:

First off, I'm a resource available to you, so feel free to chat with me here, on discord, or on steem.chat. If any of those are up your alley, I am probably lurking in them 😂

If you find videos to be the most help to you, you can check out Steem Onboarding or Steem Savvy for some great ones.

If you prefer chatting back and forth live, Discord is one of the big go tos. PALnet, the Steem Terminal, and many many others exist with all sorts of purposes and niches and I'd be happy to help you find a few that fit.

Overall, welcome to the chain! It can be big and crazy, but once you get the hang of it you'll wonder why you weren't here in the first place. I'm stoked you reached out, because it's nice to see Steem though fresh eyes again~

Awesome!

Most of the reading I've come across basically reveals that the developers are doing their best to create an organic atmosphere through different algorithmic solutions. So with that and the further advice you laid out before me, I think I'll just use the site naturally for now then maybe later I'll give some more consideration to the minutia of my browsing behavior once I become more established.

While I think short videos can be good, I like to be able to sit down and sink my teeth into some subjects every once in awhile. I'm excited for some of those beta features you showed off on your livestream. I'm going to look into Steem chat and perhaps I'll see if I see you on there.

Thank you.

Totally! The coolest thing about Steem is truly that "blogging" isn't the be all end all. We're starting to see all sorts of solutions, games, and (d)apps cropping up. This is one facet of it all that will absolutely help bolster an organic atmosphere, but the interface that I demoed here will make the biggest impact on written content and social blogging. Once it's live, I am fairly certain we'll see a lot of these features pulled into other services in ways we may not expect to build a better user experience~ when you start considering that chain data can be pulled by anyone to create anything, it starts getting realllly interesting. Drop me a line if you need anything!

Such an awesome show!

THIS GIF IS KICKIN' RAD AND IT'S MINE NOW

I was hoping to find some information on the upcoming communities, so I wicked appreciate you putting this together, @crimsonclad! I'm planning to give this a listen tomorrow, but figured I'd shout out now and say...

crimsonclad, thank you.gif

I will endeavour to get time stamps edited in in the morning so that you will hopefully be able to navigate this giant chunk of video more easily! Also, this one legged pickle really made me smile, lol~

As I said in my YouTube comment, I don't think you need timestamps on it - the whole thing is informative, and kinda builds on itself so skipping chunks wouldn't make sense (kind of like that sentence...lol). Glad I was able to return the favor, since I smiled a bunch of times listening to the show! 😊

Thanks for this, sharing this with the TeamMalaysia group! :)

Some of them will have seen it/chatted with me about it already, but make sure to drop any feedback you guys have! Big hugs to the team~

Yeaps, I guess that's how the 'team malaysia' community is on the test site? Hahaha, anyways love what you do and we'll definitely let you know if anything :)

It totally is: check it out!

None of this is my doing, it's all @roadscape and other great community testers. I'm just the big mouth who attached herself out of sheer excitement ;) cheers!

Thank you @roadscape!

Hahha, I'm just as excited as you are :)

Holy Cow! A bonafide Crimmi sighting. In writing.

I am officially a lurker, harboring a comeback. I've missed your show for a month because of an ongoing project. Who knew regular people do shit on Saturday because they work otherwise?

I've got it on now, and really do appreciate you and your show. You have got to be the best 'explainer' in the whole system.

Thank you, them's big words that I will try to live up to. I'm glad you're staying occupied and finding things that you love to do! I recognize my show is at a really awkward time that most people reserve for "getting shit done" or "spending time on themselves" and I have no desire to get in the way of that. If someone manages to wander in, then my hope is always they have enough fun/learn enough that they feel the time is well spent. Then I'm happy 🖤

Communities are exceeding my hopes! Thanks for making this video and thanks so much @roadscape and everyone else who made this possible!

I feel very much the same way! What do you think you'd like to use them for, or what's a community you'd like to make/join?

I've been waiting for a long time to create a grow a community for @thevenusproject.

Great! When wider release is ready to go I will make sure to touch base with you :)

Great! Thank you.

Your smile is more crazier than you :D BTW Thanks for clarifying about upcoming feature :D I have watched the whole video :O

lol, it's true~ many people comment about my laugh being a bit of a cackle and my smile being pretty crazy! What can I say? I get excited and like to have fun; it makes me doubly happy that Steem is a part of that. I can't believe you made it all the way through... do you think you will make or look for a community to join?

Yeah. And yes, this is the reason i have watched the whole video with out getting bored, i will be more than happy to be a part of it.

Communities is looking like I hoped. Just want it now as we need it to get more people using Steem.

I hear you and quite agree! I think even more importantly, it will allow all interfaces and services to help build the experiences (or provide the tools for users to shape those experiences) that bring people who couldn't have the one they wanted back around. Knowing that not all attrition is price, being able to re-engage people who loved Steem but weren't able to use it in ways they wanted will go a long way to building a strong foundation for the even newer people to be introduced on~

Communities/groups is the big feature we have been missing up to now. I was there when they announced some details in Lisbon and it's been a long wait. Having an open source, decentralised community system with potential for rewards ought to be a winner, but we will still need it to be marketed well. That has been lacking too. I would have been grilling Steemit people on this at Steemfest if I'd been there.

great info, thanks! Have you considered uploading to DTube and/or 3Speak?

Actually, in the past, I have done a number of community videos that I have put up through Dtube (which is why you don't see them on that YouTube channel), but there were some troubles with playback and properly getting them pinned. I'm very open to using a fully steem powered solution, but I don't want to create two to three of the exact same post here on chain to host the same video while trying to use all of these services. I will reach out (or if you know, please tell me!) about ways to upload videos to both of those services without making a top level post, so I can aggregate into a single place for archival without unnecessary duplication's sake.

communities look good. thanks for the video

and the plug :)

Thanks for making it far enough into the show to realise how awkwardly I lingered on your profile! I probably should have given you the heads up ☺️

Wish I wasn’t know there a stemware radio 🤦🏻‍♀️

hahah, I think most people who hear me talk end up wishing they didn't, yes 😂

Wish is a typo 🤦🏻‍♀️ I Wasn’t know there that kind of radio out there 🤷🏻‍♀️

No worries, I'm teasing you! I am glad you commented. I do this show each weekend and if you ever have any questions or comments that you wanted answered please feel free to reach out to me. We'd love to have you come listen and interact in Discord, the show is made for people who would like to learn~

I like yr energy btw, were i can find the link to Listen yr shows ??

Thank you! 😊 I have two shows currently.

On Saturdays at 7pm UTC I do Steemwave Radio, which is the show you hear here... it is very Steem and tech centric, has a slightly retro future vibe, with some laughs and dancing thrown in.

On Fridays at 1am UTC (Which is still thursday for many time zones) I do a metal and hard rock show. It is more like traditional radio and plays a lot of licensed music. The talk is fun and crazy, but there's a lot less "steem" chatter, though most (not all) of the listeners are from on steem and around the community. I have a weekly countdown timer on https://fullforce.rocks

You can always find more about Steem's premiere social broadcasting network at mspwaves.com... there's a full schedule there!

Mucha información importante, gracias por el apoyo y ser parte de esta gran plataforma, es una etapa muy buena para ser parte steemiit

You're definitely the best.

I've not had lately much time for discord or the radio shows for many reasons but that doesn't mean I don't appreciate the effort and the power they have to bring the community together. I have the fondest memories of them, and I hope to build new ones, even if having kind of an away time (news soon though) that is the experience and the memory that makes me go back always.

Hey there! You're pretty new and I'm glad to see you're out checking out popular posts. That being said, asking people to blanket follow you for resteems and votes is actually not a very good strategy because it's not very genuine and doesn't offer people or the platform anything particularly valuable. If you want to learn a bit more about the Steem ecosystem I'd be happy to chat with you about it. I definitely recommend you spend time writing and reading what you genuinely enjoy and if you plan to leave comments, to have them actually express your opinions about the content.

This looks fantastic!!! At last Steem will have a way to find posts of interest! Can't wait!

Hey there! You're pretty new and I'm glad to see you're out checking out popular posts. That being said, this type of comment (just sharing your name) not a very good strategy because it's not very genuine and doesn't offer people or the platform anything particularly valuable. Plus, they can simply click on your name above the comment, so you don't need to add it to the content.

Thanks for the wonderful tour. Following with interest.

Here's hoping that this will lead to the onboarding of the masses

It should do. It's a massive improvement.
