After seeing a list of SMAS users (I still don't know what the exact definition of SMAS is), or in otherwords, users banned from signatures from Laudia, I decided I wanted to work on a little project. Also, I decided to do it after seeing some controversy on Lauda as well. I'm still new when it comes to knowing who the people are and the history.

Anyway, I figured the list of SMAS users would be a good start for the project, and then I could go from there. Currently, the project allows you to view a searchable table that lists the SMAS users, along with the reason why they're banned and the reference material for it. Since I pulled the users from Lauda's list, there was no reference material for the ~800 users.

(Near) Future Plans
  • I will add the ability to choose which field is the ascending / descending attribute.
  • Once I am able to get to it, there will be a direct link to the user's profile.
  • There will be more details available on each SMAS user as well (This is the "View" button that currently does nothing).
  • People will be able to contribute user's to the list. Contributions will be reviewed prior to addition.
  • People will be able to provide additional data for any user currently on the list. Contributions will be reviewed prior to addition.
  • Multiple language support
  • Farther future will be the (possible) incorporation of an API to allow you to pull info directly from my server, within reason. I need to learn how to properly develop APIs, so I may end up doing this.
  • Possible mobile app once the web framework is complete

I plan to add more features and more data to look at. I would like input on how the current site feels / operates. As well, I would like input on what could be added.

The project is coded in PHP primarily, utilizing the CodeIgniter 3 framework. The layout is using the MDB Bootstrap UI kit for Bootstrap 4. This may end up as an open source project, but we shall see.

Secondary, rather, Primary App
  • In addition to the SMAS users feature indicated at the link above, and though I plan to add more BCT features, I have begun development on an Airdrop / Bounty tracker system.
  • The system is currently more specific to the project I'm working on, but I think it could be generalized and easily modified to the need of the project.
  • Currently, the system is able to track
    • Telegram Followers
    • Twitter Followers
    • Validate ETH Address
    • Validate a URL that users claim they have shared posts at (Facebook + Twitter currently)
  • Unfortunately, Facebook does not allow users of the API to pull member information. So, tracking Facebook members / likes is still a manual task. If the page is a public group, then I may be able to write something that can scrape the data. But, as many projects create Facebook Pages, instead of Facebook Groups, this would not be feasible.
  • Finally, once the system updates the current list of followers, it determines the user's eligibility for the Airdrop / Bounty based on its performance. These checks are done daily.

I have updated the OP with content regarding a new Airdrop / Bounty system that I have begun implementing for automatic verification of user status for such events. There's still some work to be done, but let me know what you think.
