A week or so ago I posted once again about my desire for pinned posts in territories. It was the shortest post I have ever made, but it got an embarrassingly high number of sats. I promise to give them all back by zapping hard or directly donating to rewards. As it turns out, I was too impatient, since @k00b pointed out that @ekyzsis is already working on this feature. I was getting impatient because I want to implement my ideas for hopefully improving this territory. Here is what I’m thinking so far:
I would like to create a pinned post which is basically an index of original content written by stackers. The content can be non-fiction, fiction, book length, essay length, short stories, poetry...whatever. I will of course honor any wishes not to be included in the index, and I will decide which content to pin. Right now I plan to pin anything that does not have any indicia or sense of having been created through artificial intelligence. They will be broken down either by category, such as book reviews, poetry, etc, or by author. My purpose in creating this post is to publicize and highlight original content to help the authors garner more attention and sats. I would like to make this territory a place where new writers can exercise their chops and build their careers. I know that’s an ambitious goal, but I think it’s worth a try.
For the second pinned post, I plan to award the most popular post of the week a pinned position for the following week. How this is calculated might be difficult. What I may do is use the built in SN zaprank calculation for this, to prevent artificially pumping sats to game the system. I’m still trying to figure out how to impliment this. I might just choose the post with the highest SN zap rank each Friday to be next week’s pinned post. Like everything else here, I’m thinking out loud and it’s all subject to change.
For the third pinned post, I plan to offer stackers the opportunity to rent the slot for a certain post for a certain amount of sats. I have not come up with a price.
For those stackers who are interested, please reply with comments and suggestions so I can get this right. Everything is subject to change
