Make content creators feel relevant and leave no post behind

10 Sep 2020 aschatria

10 September 2020
One of the biggest problems here is the complete disregard for non-crypto content. There were creators and an audience for non-crypto (myself included), but because the site continues to ignore anything outside the crypto niche, many of them have left. I haven't left yet, but motivation to write these days is nearing zero because most of the time I don't want to write about crypto. If the devs had been more inclusive of non-crypto content when it was there, we wouldn't be in the situation we are now where a huge portion of the posts is just different people reporting the same damn thing.

Brave Browser Token, More BAT?

There is no mystery about it - Brave ads are based on the kinds of sites you visit. It is even listed in their FAQ.

Looks like we have gone so deep into this I can't comment on your other post, so I will reply here. Yes, ad notifications are complete, I am not arguing that point. That is what phase 1 ads are. Phase 2 ads, also known as publisher ads, are banner ads show on opted-in verified websites. These are the ads controlled by the switch in your creator profile, and are the only ads triggered by a user visiting a verified site.

The epic linked from that pull request was for all desktop versions of Brave. That just indicates that Brave's tests were performed on MacOS.

Further proof - here is the pull request for the code changes to enable publisher ads in Brave which has not yet been merged, meaning publisher ads cannot be seen by the browser: https://github.com/brave/brave-core/pull/4705/commits The reason for differing ad/reward numbers is simple - because ad delivery is inconsistent, especially in the last few months. If any of your test included versions in 1.12.x there was at least one bug that affected many users where ads stopped showing for at time. There was also a period of over a week where direct ad value changed for some users but others didn't see the change yet.

As further proof, here is a post from Reddit (from 2 months ago) where one of the support team directly verifies that publisher ads (phase 2 ads) have not yet been released: https://www.reddit.com/r/BATProject/comments/hbwt3k/any_updates_on_publisher_ads_eta_i_cant_wait_to/

Not seeing enough ads in your Brave browser? This tip may help!

31 Aug 2020 ScreenTag

01 September 2020
Browser history absolutely plays a part, because it affects what categories of ads each installation will be shown. If one installation was heavily leaning towards one or two categories with a higher ratio of ads before your test, then it will continue to lean towards those categories during your test. Did you properly read the description of phase 2 ads? How often do you get paid out your 70% share of ad revenue from ads being shown to users on your site? You don't - because phase 2 ads have not yet started. The current ad model is still phase 1 - users being shown ads and receiving 70% of the ad "value", with publishers receiving nothing because the ads are not being displayed via the publishers site.

31 Aug 2020 ScreenTag

31 August 2020
Were the 2 devices exactly the same platform and version of Brave? Did you visit the exact same number of sites and exact same category of sites between the 2 devices? Was the browsing history on the 2 devices exactly the same before the test and had Brave been installed for the same amount of time, or were the 2 devices fresh installs of Brave for this test? If you say no to any of those then your comparison is incredibly flawed. I have one device which visits verified sites significantly more often than my other device, but receives significantly less BAT. Publisher consent has zero to do with notification-based advertising. The publisher consent is for the phase 2 ads you can read about at the bottom of [this official blog post](https://basicattentiontoken.org/brave-previews-opt-in-ads-in-desktop-browser-developer-channel/) (and yes, that is a blog post from last year, but the in-site ads have not yet been implemented).

This is incorrect. You do not need to visit the websites of verified publishers to trigger ads and it will not increase the number of ads a user receives. The setting for publishers showing ads on their sites is not yet functional. When it is enabled by Brave it will mean users will see banner ads - not notifications - on publisher sites. The notification based ads have nothing to do with verified sites and will not be tied to the publisher ads setting.

💉How To Decline A Vaccine (Legally)

30 August 2020
`Remember, doctors have sworn the Hippocratic Oath (which is to do no harm) and they MUST honor it!!!` Bullshit. The Hippocratic Oath is not a legal or medical standard, and many schools of medicine use heavily altered, or completely original alternatives to the Hippocratic Oath. The Hippocratic Oath also has no direct repercussions on a doctor if they do break it - medical malpractice lawsuits have a basis in existing law but have no basis in the oath, and many judges have dismissed the oath as a standard in such cases.
