There has been a heated discord about the quality of many Splinterlands post using the #spt tag for the Splintertalk tribe token. Daily reward card posts and low-effort giveaways have been criticized by some of us Mavericks on the official Discord channel. This lead to frustration among some of the players and content creators and both sides were sharing their frustration about this issue.
On one hand we had, among others, @jarvie and me talking about some of these low value/low effort posts and on the other side we had users like @shoemanchu, @jonnyla08 and @dreamryder007 arguing in favor of giveaways in general.
We even learned that @jonnyla08's little brother, @just4kicks46, who was doing regular giveaways (of much higher quality than we were referring to), decided to stop them and even turning his back on the game and Steem itself in this post. This was in no way our intention and I have been spending all day so far in order to calm the tides.
Like it is often the case, we all wanted the same and ended our discussion with some virtual hugs and a new outlook, to make this work for all of us. Personally, I feel now differently about giveaways and want to help to make the more exciting and beautiful, by doing my share to support the content creators with constructive criticism, graphics, upvotes (when deserved) and even with some of my own cards for their giveaways. More about that in my next #spt post.
In this video I am going through the entire issue and try to shed some light on both sides and discuss what happened and what we can learn from it.
