New Steem Power Delegation Manager Tool!

last month
65 in utopian-io

Recently I've been dealing with delegation a lot, and it's a real pain in the ass to manage! Vessel is a really great tool (many thanks to @jesta for that!), but it doesn't handle increasing delegations to accounts you've already delegated to very well, and it's only a desktop app so it doesn't help for people who are on mobile or who don't have it installed.

As a result, I've decided it's about time to create a web-based delegation manager tool to help everyone manage their delegations more effectively. Rather than create a separate website / project just for this, I have decided to add it as another tool within the Steem Bot Tracker website which I already run and maintain.

Steem Power Delegation Manager

So without further ado, I give you the Steem Power Delegation Manager! You can access it by clicking the link in the previous sentence or within the "Tools" dropdown menu on the Steem Bot Tracker site.

As you can see from the above screenshot, you simply enter your Steem account name and it will load all of your existing delegations with options to remove or update them. If you have already logged in with SteemConnect then it will pre-fill your account name and load your delegations automatically.

Just below the list of existing delegations there is also a section where you can add a new delegation. You can simply fill in the account to which you would like to delegate and the amount of Steem Power you would like to delegate and then click the "Delegate!" button which will take you to a SteemConnect page to complete your delegation.

Additionally it shows how much SP you have available in your account to delegate (minus 6 SP to make sure you don't delegate too much!) and an easy option to delegate the max amount if you wish.

URL Parameters

Last, but not least, if you want to give someone a link to delegate to a specific account, currently you can do that through SteemConnect, but you have to specify the exact amount of SP (in VESTS) that should be delegated and there's no way for the user of the link to change that other than updating the amount of VESTS in the URL.

Now you can instead provide a link to this delegation manager tool instead like so:

https://steembottracker.com/delegation.html?delegatee=postpromoter&amount=1000

This will default the "amount" field to 1,000 SP, however the user of the link can easily change it to whatever they would like. You can also leave out the "amount" parameter altogether and they will need to specify the amount.

Future Updates

I have a couple of future updates planned for this tool including:

  • Showing details about delegations that have been removed and are within the 7 day waiting period so you can easily see when your delegated SP will be returned to your account; and
  • Show a list of delegations to a specific account, so you can easily see who has delegated to my @postpromoter bot, for example.

Thanks for your support!

As always I want to thank everyone who has helped and supported me in my work on the Steem platform. Please stay tuned for more updates in the coming weeks!

Another much needed addition to the steem infrastructure!

Great timing too as I was looking to move around some delegation and hadn't got as far as going through the rigamarole of working out how to bring it back. Now it looks like I won't have to!

Cool, I hope it helps you! Let me know how the interface is and if there's anything that's confusing or that you think could be done better. It's just my first shot at this so I'm sure it can be improved.

Wow, thank you for your hard work, SteemBotTracker was already one of my favorite Steemit-related tools (in addition to @steemd.com). Power delegation management was so far inconvenient indeed and this solves the problem. Cheers! : )

Excellent idea @yabapmatt, now users can easily delegate SP without bothering about all that mumble jumble vests thingy or trying to edit sharing vesting power links. Thank you so much for this tool, steemit appreciates you

Thank you so much for all you do!! Seriously...I've only been on steemit for one month but love the steem bot tracker. Actually, I love pretty much everything about this platform, but especially the community spirit here. I spend hours 'wandering' around every day/night here and am glad to have stumbled upon this:) I know there is so much going on behind the scenes too; my 'witness vote' is coming your way! Cheers! and thanks again.
