I respect the ethos of competition and applaud that. I might create a separate private key for browsing Nostr in various clients Personally I will avoid subjecting my private key to a lot of clients. Until we have a solid method of account transfer for compromized keys I will keep my risk exposure limited.

After further consideration, my idea probably can't work as I described it, due to the risk of bots instantly removing the deposit after posting notes with the special tags and then using those sats for the deposit of another account. If this was automated thousands of times per day, the resulting spam would still be immense and the special tags would be useless. To combat this, the deposit needs to be locked in place for some amount in time before it can be emptied. Let's say that an account deposit must stay in the account for 7 days before it can be emptied. If the deposit is, let's say,10,000 sats and we can't access it for 7 days, that would still be long enough to prevent bots from gaming the mechanic.

In recent clinical tests, most climate alarmists freeze at -60C, and even the control group that was given 55 boosters. Please help the funding of more extensive testing. Picture: "Latest seasonal values below -60 °C on the Antarctic Plateau. On October 26 the threshold was broken at JASE2007 AWS with -60.6 °C and at Dome Fuji AWS (in the pic) with -60.4 °C"

Good suggestions. I have one idea, not sure if it would work: 1. Let's say we can tag our note with for example: [Meme], [Picture], [Politics], [Sport], [Philosophy], [Photography], [AI-Art], [Art-No-AI], and so on. One problem that we would face is bots falsely self-tagging their notes for unwarranted classification. 2. What if we could voluntarily embed into our profile, let's say 1000 sats as a deposit, and as long as we have that deposit there, we could utilize special tags for our notes that makes them easy to find and index based on those tags. The deposit would exist in a wallet that we could empty when we want, although then our special tag clearance would disappear. There are certainly problems with this. How do we set a 'fair' minimum amount of deposit. Is there a risk that we alienate those who don't have 1000 sats to spare. What if the deposit was 10,000 sats. What if the price of Bitcoin increases so much that 1 sat is too high. Just something to reflect on.

Agreed, well said. Nostr has tremendous potential. How long it will take to reach its potential is still unknown. Dissing other social platforms only lead people to close down. People mindreading and assuming other people are chasing dopamine hits on other social media, is just frankly irrational overreach in conclusion. Besides, what could possibly give a better dopamine hit than receiving sats on Nostr. Until we acknowledge that there are genuine challenges involved we won't make progress by assuming the worst of the people we are asking to join us here. Finding content on Nostr is still a challenge. Finding good engagement on Nostr, unless you are part of a tight group of friends, can take time. Sometimes when I post, I don't know if anyone is reading my note, and I don't know if that's because the quality is not good enough, or if my reach is bad due to having the wrong relays activated, or something else entirely. I think adding Lists to more clients can be helpful, I know some clients already have that. Finding content by search can be very hard.

Reminds me of last year when I didn't renew my domain. I rarely used my blog and it had become a chore. It was one extra burden less.

No, this is wishful thinking. From my experience, Nostr is often 'dead' when you post things and there is generally little engagement, so the impression many users get is that nobody is interested. If nobody is interested in engaging then people feel that they are wasting their time. This could in some cases be related to relay problems. Also sometimes the notifications don't work so you might not see a response someone wrote. So the impression for many users is that there is little response.

Good idea. I've been thinking about this also. For now, before we have a technical solution, we could post a note and keep it in our public bookmarks. Below is the Npub of my account backup #1. I have set my main account to follow my backup account. I will keep the robot avatar for my backup until I use it. Possible hashtags to find the note: #Npub #MyNpub #MyNostrBackup #LeoFernevak #MyNostrLeoFernevak #MyNostrBackupLeoFernevak #NpubLeoFernevak npub10zc33xk

Yes, this is how many of us feels about savings in Bitcoin. Similarly the psychology functioned the same throughout history in relation to gold and silver. Hard money savings brings certainty where there is uncertainty.
