It seems like publish0x's UI has been updated a little bit and I see some minor changes here and there.
The most noticeable change that's been implemented is this rating system.
Currently, they are just testing this new feature and it has no effect on tipping or anything.
I like the idea of rating system if they implement it properly.
But they have to be very careful about this, otherwise it will become like Steemit.
One thing I HATE about steemit is this downvote abuse.
People downvote each other all the time and they have this constant downvoting battle. Abusers are intentionally hurting other people's reputation, influence and everything by downvoting everything.
Hopefully, that will no happen here...
Upside of this rating system is that, this data can be used for many purposes.
Especially, this rating can be used for "personal feed" instead of everybody is looking at the same articles all the time.
User base is growing like crazy!
And post count is going up fast!
However, when I go the main page, I see the same "popular" articles all the time.
Some articles are great and interesting but a lot of them are no that interesting to me or copy/paste/overworked/poor quality garbage... that I don't even know why they are so "poplar".
Some authors are too eager to publish anything and everything every few hours just to make few cents out of them or hoping to get "hit" or something... which is fine they can whatever, but I don't really want to see those articles on my feed.
So it would be nice to be able to "hide" (don't hide them from the platform) them by downvoting and to see some different articles.
And focus more on authors that I follow by upvoting or similar articles that are upvoted a lot or something idk 🤷
Hopefully this will be used for the better, not for the downvote battle or anything... 🙏🙏🙏 HOPEFULLY 🙏🙏🙏
