I'm writing an update news of an app that can be stacked.sat

Just another day stacking sats

Hope you had a refreshing vacation.
Would love a reply in regard to my bounty submission.
reply
The bounty was for it to be a feature of SN. I'm okay with the UX being a bot and you running the bot and earning the tips, but I want SN to be able to run it if you disappear. Those are the conditions of the bounty, albeit they weren't explicit.
If you FOSS the source code, you'll qualify to receive the full thing. Have you? Otherwise, I'll happily give you a fractional reward. lmk
reply
I tried making an anonymous github account, but it was shadowbanned. It won't even let me add you as collaborator.
I've linked to the current version of the source code elsewhere. Provided again below for your convenience
reply
Sorry for missing it if you shared it before. Do you mind if we publish these on github?

Is there any updates of outer.space?
reply
No new ones. It's going to be my focus for the foreseeable future though while supporting/guiding @ekzyis on the SN stuff he wants to work on.
We are a bit split brained right now but I'll be working even harder than usual to not disappoint.

I came across this article.
I notice that this SN user is no longer active. Is he still gaming the site, and did this get resolved?
reply
@v1ntage is still here.
The amount of sats you've stacked has no effect on trust. It never did, even back then when our WoT model was even more naive. So to the extent that they're implying they gamed trust they are wrong.
They did game the top stackers ranking though which is only a vanity metric and was known by me to be game-able.
It can still be gamed through circular tipping but this type of gaming is no longer free. It'll cost you 10% of the amount you are trying to add to another account's "stacked" metric.
reply
Gotcha. I assume there's no way to stop it, but you can make it more costly if need be?
reply
Gotta spend money to make money.
reply
Yep.
We had someone come along and self-tip 1m sats a few months ago and inadvertently donated 100k sats to the reward pool for the day. I can't find the comment but they followed up with an acknowledgement to the effect of "rekt."

Was it @tech5? How'd he get into "account jail" lol https://stacker.news/items/60020

10 sats \ 1 reply \ @k00b OP 1 Jun
tech5 was one of the earlier ones playing this game. They tipped themselves so many sats that when denominated in msats it wouldn't fit in a 32 bit signed integer so they couldn't be tipped anymore. The DB has overflow detection and effectively "restrained" him. Even I didn't have that many sats back then.
reply
Haha yep! It wasn't me. I only tipped myself for the thrill, never took from others.

Good

Crazy how the mainstream media focuses on looting and stealing of department stores but looking at a legal brief every morning it’s crazy to see the amount of frauds and scams that are out there. Tons of white collar crimes that steal millions every day yet nothing from the MSM.
reply
There is a 40% increase in violent crime in my area. Its unreal. The only reason i know about it is because i look up the statistics myself. The media wont say a word. Every headline every day since covid sort of ended has been about the conflict in Ukraine, every headline, every day for over a year
reply
Yeah I meet with police chief and Mayor and get the stats in real time. Nothing too much out the ordinary here just personal property thefts from cars
But I agree. The news doesn’t really inform anymore

I went to a Mets game at Citi Field last night. Post game there were impromptu vendors selling hats, t-shirts, beer, soft drinks, etc to people walking to the subway platforms. This was clearly an unlicensed, underground marketplace. Most of the vendors held up cardboard, handwritten signs saying "Venmo and Zelle accepted here." They all looked pretty rough around the edges, so I never got up the nerve to orange pill them. I'm going to another game in early July. Time to work up my battle plan.
reply
LOL Mets as a fellow Mets fan kudos for going to the games! I was hoping the catch them this summer myself
reply
A fellow Mets fan! They have obviously been disappointing so far this season, but they looked good last night. Getting to the games is a hassle, so I usually only go to 3 or 4 a year.
