What is Prometheus and how can I get the fire badge?
Prometheus is an artificial intelligence, developed using machine learning technology and neural networks. We have developed it to seek out and support interesting authors. The system is constantly finding creators of unique content and observes their accomplishments. Talented users and interesting communities get a special badge in the shape of a flame as well as wider reach.
The mobile app’s Recommendations service shows an author’s posts to others that are not yet familiar with their works but might be interested in them.
The fire badge is given for 7 days, which is also the amount of time the users and communities benefit from enhanced reach. This badge can be received more than once. Authors who continue to create and fascinate their audience can be honored by Prometheus again.
How can I get the badge?
Create unique content and post it on our site
This doesn’t mean that all of your materials need to be unique. If an artist posts their own work while at the same time publishing the works of an illustrator that inspires them, Prometheus will still honor them. But if a community’s posts only consist of links to other websites, the mechanism won’t be able to determine if their content is unique or not.
If you follow this advice, but you don’t get the badge, don’t get discouraged. It doesn’t mean that your works now and in the future won’t be recognized. Prometheus can’t find and share all of the authors’ interesting content at once, and the system is constantly learning and perfecting itself.
Protecting the author
We are teaching Prometheus to recognize original content and enter the source into the Recommendations section. In order for the algorithm to determine that your content is unique, it should be posted directly on VK. This is a form of technical protection. If you published materials on a different service or someone else beat you to posting the materials on our site, Prometheus won’t be able to tell that you were the author. Therefore, we advise you to upload materials directly to VK and only afterward to other places on the web.
I posted content first but another user copied it. What can I do?
These materials will appear in the Recommendations section under your name. This means that a copied post won’t attract a new audience to another user or community.
Where can I find a list of pages that Prometheus has found?
So far, there’s no such list, but we discuss the most interesting users in the community: vk.com/authors. You can also read more about Prometheus here: vk.com/blog/creators and Prometheus (for now only available in Russian).
