RE: Proof of Brain - All ideas start somewhere (DCC Tribe Token Talk)
I don't remember speaking to you about the topic, but I DO remember reading about the possibility of re-publishing older content.
We see republished content all the time outside of Hive. Old YouTube videos, for example, can collect earnings for years. Hive only allows content to receive rewards for up to 7 days after publishing. A limitation like this appears to draw ire from the community as there is time pressure on that article to gain funding. So, a seemingly great article might receive the value of a low reward with only 7 days being active. It's for this reason why I see engagement as being so critical towards getting your article noticed. You have time on other platforms.
Unfortunately, I only know what is the rule. I don't know the why of it apart from that it may be regulatory-based. I'm not sure, to be honest.
I've been speaking to Hive Downvote Rewards about the possibility of republishing content I previously published. What Hive doesn't want is double-rewards for an old post. What I understand of things is that I can republish content if:
- I accept no rewards for the post, AND
- I assign all rewards to @null, OR
- I can assign all rewards to @hbdstabilizer
I'll have to get back to you on their responses, but I walked away feeling pretty confident about republishing. My original intent was to re-publish articles as a refresher to the community. There's no reason why I couldn't, for example, promote someone's past work to get them some advertising.
Responses to erh.germany's points
For newbies to drop some hive dollars from my personal wallet and pay them that way, as I can afford it (since my upvote can only show measly pennies).
That's definitely one way to go. I do know that for introductory posts use of the #introduceyourself tag, at the very least, will give the new person additional Hive or other tokens they may not get on regular posts. Hive seems to give a pass to newbies which is understandable.
For old-timers to support each other by upvoting and commenting again on their original posts made with love (enriching the newly created post with a few explanations of the old post). I mean, come on, what speaks against it to gain in terms of currency and awareness from something you put into a lot?
The "potential solution" I wrote of could apply here. Also, curation posts provide a function that seems to meet your point. When I've written curation posts, I delegated article rewards to them. I don't see curation articles as a good payout for myself. It's always an act of appreciation for me.
To enliven the marketplace by trading goods and services horizontally with each other, who in turn use the Wallet as their a relevant source of remuneration.
I've not thought about using the wallet as a source of remuneration. I don't actually know that this is done as my knowledge about Hive isn't as wide as I'd like. It's a good idea though.
