Who's been chatting away since the hard fork?

'Engagement' got a mention in yesterdays @steemitblog post - a look at who's been active on chain over the past couple of months.


With the amount of automated or copy/paste commentary on chain, which I think is actually down since the price fall and RC utilization, just finding the top 50 commentators in recent times took a little while.

After filtering 342 accounts (by sight or a manual check) which frequently produce the same or similar comments, the list be low looks to be the 50 most verbose commentators since the 1st September 2019.

AccountComment CountCharacter count

Much of the first 10, and many others in the remainder of the list are also a part of the Engagement League. It's hard to say if they would be so wordy on Steem if this wasn't the case, but it's not a big deal either way. What is important is that they are taking the time to interact and engage. So much content goes without a single message and sometimes this content is earning well in comparison to the average, and seeing this work on the trending page is a bit saddening and likely gives the wrong impression to people looking in.

The introduction of Communities will hopefully bring the focus back to engagement, and something I would like to see is a maintained feed that show some of the most engaging content. At present, this is easily gameable but some of the (hopefully) upcoming community features could allow admins to remove automated/spammy commentary to give some order to a list of the Posts that people are commentating on. This doesn't necessarily mean that what is being said in the content is great/popular, and there could be a general wave of disagreement in the comments - nothing wrong with that though if it is constructive and not abusive though I think.

Well done to the folks in the list, it might be worth putting your name down here if you haven't already for the chance to collect some rather cheap looking STEEM each Sunday.

Have a good day all,


Steemie currently dosen't allow you to make comments. If you want to write something, write it using another frontend (like Steemit)

    Wordy comments. Some people do go all out for them. My hats off to them, I'm a succinct feller :0D

  • @brittandjosie

    I like cheap Looking steem on Sunday , great list glad I am on it and so are friends with whom I interact daily or weekly. I do think there is also a difference to comments and blogging ( not the APPICS Actifit ones but blogs they are to easy ) and just commenting and doing 1 blog a week. But the written blogs, with 200 words plus, daily make a difference! I would like to see the list of those people because dping that contributing to the platform in two ways is even more of a good job ! Both blogging and commenting is hard work and being is Discord aswell is true engagement Is being everywhere and a lot of people do that. I will bett ya I am on that list aswell Blog to you tomorrow when the cheap looking steem is handed out πŸ˜‰

  • @crokkon

    yay, a list of all-human and highly engaged users! very refreshing after getting a list of mostly bots from my own efforts today :) impressive numbers in the top of the list!

  • @jaynie

    Awesome to see so many of our fantabulous Powerhouse Creatives members in that list, myself included haha!!

  • @wales

    I like to upvote as much as I can every day when my rc is 100%, and for every upvote I always comment, but after up to 10 comments and upvotes and my post and a resteem my rc is down to the 80s, and I'm a dolphin, so how people can do so many comments is beyond me, unless they just comment without an upvote; but anyway, good to see some phc in there

  • @roleerob

    Our Steem blockchain was originally conceived and "marketed" as a place where people can earn something of value for their written content @abh12345. Since it was widely reported, by all those β€œthe rest of us” are supposed to look to for Steem β€œwisdom,” that upvoting comments was no longer a good idea after the EIP changes of HF 21 / 22, upvoting is now quite rare.

    As you say here, with a few notable exceptions, comment creation has now dropped … Hmmm. Surprise, surprise. I wonder what could be causing this? πŸ˜‰

    I know this is completely off subject...but is the whole "UA" thing still in existence or relevant. I haven't heard anything of it in months and was wondering. And of course, great post, and I'm sure the top ones that are in the engagement leagues definitely have that as a contributing factor for their positioning.😁 Have a great weekend brother!πŸ€—

  • @tarazkp

    That is a good list to create from time to time. I think that some of them might be spurred on by the EL, but many would be doing similar anyway. For me at least, I write as I do, League or no league :)

  • @traciyork

    Okay wait - so you're saying that even though @dswigle was on vacation for an entire month, she still managed to get on the list and I didn't? Daaaayum, I gotta up my chatting game fo shure! πŸ˜‚

    Seriously, the more I hear about Communities, the more I'm liking the idea, and hopefully there will be more focus on engagement in the days that follow. Thanks for putting this together, @abh12345!

  • @livinguktaiwan

    Wow!! We got a really chatty bunch here! That's fantastic!!

    Talking of engagement, can I do a shameless plug here? I'm gonna do it anyway ^_^

    I like taking things offline to add a bit of human touch and started to send postcards to some Steemians around the world. So far I've sent 12 postcards to 9 different countries. With Christmas coming, I'd like to send some Christmas cards out as I don't think we do enough of that nowadays. I did a post about this yesterday, if anybody is interested, please do check out my post. I won't post the link here, as that would be really shameless

    Thanks for letting me do a plug here Ash, even though you haven't said Yes.... yet ^_^

  • @flaxz

    Thank you very much for the mention @abh12345, I am not part of the Engagement League though, I do believe we need more engagement on this blockchain, with comments and discussions that have meaning and not just upvotes, comments have been going down a lot since the last hardfork, and to be honest I think that me being that high here is just because I never let the hardfork change my commenting habits, keep up your great work and stay awesome.

  • @chireerocks

    @abh12345, Thank you so much for your kind mention brother. It is tough but i am enjoying this journey because it's my passionate journey. Stay blessed brother.

    Lol I think it's kinda sad that I'm in the top 30, I've hardly been as active as I used to be, which is evident from my dropping down the engagement league. Kinda sucks that this place lives and dies by the price of crypto. But on we solider, to where I don't know but I'm willing to go along for the ride

  • @torrey.blog

    Dang! I’ve only made 1000 comments total. I’m very impressed by those with 10,000 comments made since September.

  • @melinda010100

    Thanks for this, Asher! It's great to see an overall engagement list! So many of my favorite people to chat with are on this list. I'm really looking forward to communities and can't wait for them to go live!

  • @flaws

    Heeey @abh12345, I'm new in your blog, stopping here to say hello:)

    Omfg, how the people can make that amount of comments? Idk, I wasn't active here, but I think if I had been active, I wouldn't be on the list anyway, wtf

    It's funny, @nonameslefttouse hasn't been here for a month and he is on the list anyway, incredible

    I think I'll be around for a while, I started following you, maybe I'll be your fan or something like that. Whatever: plS f0lloW m3e ToO

  • @kadna

    Good idea - have you something to do with !ENGAGE ?

  • @glenalbrethsen

    Hey, @abh12345.

    Going all out on this engagement quote are we? :)

    I like the pom-pomming for your engagement league, too. :)

    Name dropping the engagers. Man, this post has it all. :)

  • @riverflows

    Oh I was scrolling and scrolling thinking that if Im not on the list Id be suprised and likely disheartened. I do try to be a good Steemizen! No suprise @tattojay right up there .. nice . Gawd I wish they would launch communities already!!! Whens the ETA?

  • @michealb


  • @dswigle

    Well I'm so far down on the list however I have been away for over a month and that has to come into play somehow. On another note I think the engagement league has played a huge part in spurring interaction between people.

    Well done, Asher.!

    !tip .20

  • @tattoodjay

    WOW I am surprised to see myself at the top of this list I honestly thought since i had left the league I had quietened down a bit and wasnt that active, clearly I was the wrong lOL

  • @galenkp

    Glad to see my name in the list Asher. I'll admit that it's much easier not to make many comments, especially considering that my average post-word-count is around 700-800 and I post everyday, sometimes twice. There's only so much time in the day. Still, it's the comments that add extra depth to a post and of course who doesn't like a little engagement on their posts? It's important.

    I recently resteemed a fellows post, asked tarazkp to vote it and sent it to curangel for a vote too. Left a comment and followed the user. That user received more comments from people who had seen it from my reposts and...Didn't reply to one of them.

    I unfollowed.

    Anyway, thanks for doing this. Much appreciated.

    I would have bet I'd be way down or even not on this list anyway. So, I am really surprised, and seeing these numbers now I know why my fingers are !DERANGED bent like that πŸ˜‰ There are a lot names I know from the league, and the number one is certainly no surprise to me πŸ˜‰

    Hi @abh12345

    It's always nice to find their name on a list if it's in the positive direction. After all, we are a social media platform and when I get comments on a post or more I respond to all comments in 95 - 100%.

    It also has to do with sheer courtesy and is social

    But some of my comments can be similar when I run competitions and reward the user who is creative with creating a narrative based on my digital image on their own blog.

    As it is now, many people see their blog empty for comments day in and day out. And that's not motivating, we have to get better at being more social here so that list changes names more often
