Downvote control tool proposal delivery #1


if you are not familiar with the tool, here's the initial post :

It's been about a week since proposal has started paying out. So it's about time for me to push the first update.

I will do one update every week to add new functionalities. So here we go with the first one !

Keychain support

Highly requested, so this is one of the first features to ship. I had to rewrite a big chunk of the app but it is now live ! You can now use keychain to login and do everything. I also kept the steemconnect login option as I felt that not everyone had keychain.

This is an important feature as many whales don't want to input their keys on a website but would rather use local tools like keychain.

Counter downvotes

This feature allows you to fight abusive downvotes with your upvotes. This is a very important feature as retaliation downvotes happen, and abusers rarely pick someone their own size, so this is a good way to make sure that they will stay put.

Be careful though, this feature still works with ratios (proper calculations based on $ per vote will come next week). So plan your ratios accordingly to not over compensate.


Add the people you don't want to automatically downvote on that list. It's useful if you want to counter the upvotes of an abuser but want to avoid hitting the wrong persons.

Don't downvote 100% to null or steem.dao

Thanks to a recent update. We can now easily set beneficiaries on so we see more and more people selecting steem.dao or null at 100% and then promoting their post (a good example is dtube's recent announcement). So I've added logic to make sure not to waste voting power on it.

You can check all of those new features on

If you like what I do please consider voting for our witness @steempress and for the downvote control tool proposal :


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

    Does this do perma downvote on a particular author because @koroljova seems to have just been created to downvote me permanently using this tool...?

    Hello sir. Just an update on the @steemmonsters "bid bot" issue. I brought the new post-hardfork downvote issue to the SM admin's attention, and they were VERY flexible and understanding about the situation, and were QUICK to discontinue the bid-bot and replace it with manual curation, using their SP reserves set aside for this very purpose. I actually agree with this, and they have also improved things so that ONLY game-related posts are now upvoted. They compensated me for the downvote I received on the previous post (which is when I brought this issue to your attention), and then went ahead and gave me a JUICY, proper, manual upvote on my most recent post. So my main point is that I think SOME/MANY of the "offenders" could be more easily sanctioned by simply bringing the issue to their attention and negotiating, INSTEAD of launching a full-on "offensive" against the people who are unknowingly "being bad" by simply using a service they have been presented as legit. Just something to consider going forward. I have been looking over your downvote tools and it looks interesting. I may use it. So I think there has been a "happy ending" in all of this. In the future, though, I think it is best to err on the side of diplomacy...
