Time to go on your Hive Tour, by @hivebuzz

It's no secret that onboarding users is one of the keys to Hive's success. But newcomers can feel a bit lost at the beginning of their journey.

We thought a step by step tour of the Hive ecosystem was needed to show new users each feature, and familiarize them with the way our blockchain operates in a more interactive fashion.

This is why we've put together a new feature on our HiveBuzz site, to guide them in a fun and helpful way.

Introducing the new Hive Tour

Check your board on hivebuzz.me to see the new tab we've added for each user.

How is the tour organized?

On the left side, you have a tree with all the "Stages" and "Steps" to be completed.

On the right side, there is a panel with the description of the item you've selected.

Note: If you are on mobile, click on the small question mark that appears next to each item and a popup with the description will be displayed.

Stages are a group of steps

In this example, this stage contains 3 steps, and none of them have been completed.

A step can be either: - active , meaning you can accomplish it whenever you want - locked , because you need to accomplish other stages before

In the above screenshot, the first one is activated and waiting for you to be completed. The second one is locked because you have to complete the previous one before it can be accessed. Same for the third one, which requires the two previous stages to be completed.

Each completed step will appear green and checked. When the whole stage is completed, it will turn green as well.

If a stage is partially completed, it will show you how many steps are left undone

NOTE: HiveBuzz doesn't process achievements in real-time. It does its work of collecting data and updating your steps and stages every hour . This should not prevent you from continuing to interact with the blockchain and complete other pending steps.

Available tour stages

We've released social stages first, designed to get you acquainted with your profile and the community.

Each step will help you set up your Hive profile, connect with the community, and understand the basics of the social aspects of the Hive ecosystem.

Here's the list of stages that we are releasing today:

  1. Configuring your profile
  2. Introducing yourself
  3. Engaging with people 3.1 Curation 3.2 Having a productive conversation 3.3 Reblogs 3.4 Following and Followers

There are more stages and steps that are ready to be released in the coming days, but we want to do this at a slow enough pace that we can take your feedback into account as we go. The goal is to make this Tour experiment as fun and motivating as possible for everyone.

What if you're an established Hive member?

Of course, with this new feature, the focus is put on people unfamiliar with our ecosystem. If you are a long time Hive user, chances are your tour is all green at the moment.

However be sure to check out our upcoming releases, as we may add things you don't know about Hive or features you've never used before.

What's next?

This is an early release and we still have many ideas we haven't fully implemented yet, including:

  • adding more social stages
  • the addition of finance, governance and other technical stages
  • the inclusion of links in the description pane to mini-tutorials

We also plan to add even more gamification in the future (yes, new badges are being considered), so stay tuned!

Feedback welcome

Let us know what you like or dislike and we will do our best to improve it. Any suggestions and constructive feedback are more than welcome.

@soyunasantacruz:

Another excellent idea from the @hivebuzz team, they are geniuses.

Congratulations, and me trying to make a good post 🤣😂.

@sacra97:

Apoyando estupenda idea @hivebuzz


avatar
@amr008:

Much needed initiative but I personally think , after they solve a particular step they should be delegated certain amount of HP. I'm not suggesting from you , maybe the dapp which onboarded the user . Change avatar - good you get 2 Hp delegation. Post - good you get 5 HP etc

@danielvehe:

Wow this is great congratulations I will use it a lot. I'm not sure if I didn't read it because I was distracted but it seems to me that it's missing a warning that they must have a certain HP so that those actions don't leave their RC at 0.

@stoneface:

I just got here, so looks like I can try this out.

@appukuttan66:

could @hivebuzz add a progress bar for certain steps. like in "get 5 reblogs" can you show the reblogs completed

@mogollono1862:

Very interesting because I am new and I am just getting to know the Hive ecosystem.


avatar
@thermoplastic:

Maybe also explain to newbies about downvotes. Some I know are easily discouraged by it - and there are quite a few @holes on this blockchain who do nothing but downvote posts for no legitimate reason. If it is a nobody you can ignore it, but if it is someone with a lot of HP it can quickly destroy a post that had garnered only a few small upvotes.


avatar
@thermoplastic:

Anybody from outside Hive (and I shared this on Facebook, Twitter and Mix for example) should also be made aware of how to join Hive: https://signup.hive.io/

@borjan:

Very cool and useful, great work.

@melinda010100:

This is great! And a beautiful way of presenting and guiding users through this tour of Hive. My tour shows that I have not done an introduceyourself post. I know I did, but believe it was before introduceyourself became a tag! 😂

@jacoalberts:

Thank you for this initiative!

Even I've been here for a few months, I'm still learning and this post has given me a good indication of what I still need to do... in terms of things I either didn't know about or just didn't think of yet.

I appreciate all the effort and hard work you do!

@brittandjosie:

Dear friend @arcange you know I am a fan BUT I want to respond. Not that I don’t like the new feature but let’s say people now see that they forgot their intro when they entered the platform, like 3 years ago. They now know the ropes make hive and have a journey in blogs published behind them. Dont you think they are robbing the reward pool at present from the people that need it, and entered with an intro? We see the abuse in the tag daily with @heyhaveyamet . We see that people use the tag multiple times ( some with intent some because they just don’t know that it’s to use when you enter the platform and one time use only ) so I think HIVE BUZZ and the HIVE TOUR can think about adding DECLINE to the introduceyourself blog made after for example a certain amount of months here or a certain amount of hp. That way the reward pool is not robbed and it’s still “honest” to the new users. In the guidelines it’s know that an intro is a possible first step, not to make money but to present yourself to the platform, so DECLINE would be the fairest way to go.

No I go and check what I missed


avatar
@successchar:

This is a really cool initiative, I've been around for a while now and have completed most of the list. The funny thing is that the part I missed is the 'Introduce Yourself' section. I guess if I had this guide back then I would not have missed doing these things. So I'll be working on these next.

This is great for any newbies coming to hive.

@hivebuzz The King loves this initiative! However it seems to me to have some issues? After, "The King" posted an introduction post and "the introduction" for the account is still unchecked. There are other "to do" functions on there that are unclear on how to achieve. Such as getting the "Veteran" badge? All in all checklists are excellent tools to get individuals new to the blockchain a jumpstart.

@kingneptune:

@hivebuzz "The King" has challenges regarding the "Power Up" contest today. It seems that either the post from last year is out of date or "the King" has committed a user error. https://peakd.com/hivebuzz/@hivebuzz/pud-helper. The Kingdom delegated 10 HP to @mungu. Not sure if that is the same as relayed in your post? When you have a minute could you inform "the King" of mission accomplished or what future requirements are necessary. Mil gracias, vaya con dios!
