Your Upvote Matters

Upvoting might be one of the most important things you do on Cyrator.

Positive Feedback Loop

First and foremost, upvotes provide a positive feedback loop, letting analysts know when they do something well and how to improve even further. So the first rule of upvoting is not to just give a short comment, but valuable feedback that will help the analyst improve. You can mention why you upvoted their review and suggest additional improvements if possible.

Rewards earned for giving upvote reflect how important this positive feedback loop is. Remember, reviews themselves can earn multiple upvotes therefore, the most lucrative action is still to provide high quality reviews which will earn as many upvotes as possible.

Data Verification

Upvotes are also meant to verify the information in a post. So please make sure you double check the information of a post you upvote where this is possible and appropriate.

Rating Impact

Please keep in mind that upvotes have a strong effect on the rating of a project, so you can use them to express your agreement with a review.

Upvote Abuse

Abusing upvotes for your own benefit, ignoring the above purpose and ultimately hurting our network's chances of success and the value of all tokens, including your own, may lead to account termination and slashing of your locked tokens. Remember, even if a certain type of abuse is not explicitly mentioned here, the community may vote that upvotes were abused in a certain manner, which may still lead to slashing. So please be careful and use upvotes in a way that you genuinely believe will benefit the network.


Overall, remember that upvotes are one of the most important aspects of our platform, intended to curb persistent problems such as cyberbullying, echo chambers and fake news that other social media platforms are grappling with. By using upvotes wisely you may contribute to a solution that may be adopted by many other platforms in the future.

We strongly believe that upvotes have the power to create a very positive environment that will benefit all our users and we hope that everyone does their part to make this powerful feature a success.

We are counting on you!
