I think there's no way to minimize listings and junior-level content. It's not about the platform: this kind of content gets more reactions on Twitter and other social media.

To me as a content writer and an online marketer the reason is crystal clear: junior and middle-level devs make up the most of the audience. They look for easy tips and solutions, they are the most active and engaging that's why this content has many reactions.

So I see the only solution here: platforms need to encourage advanced-level content and its writers. For example, dev.to could provide special sections for quality and advanced content, offer plaform achievements and rewards so that experienced devs could easily access the content and its writers could get their share of recognition from other experienced devs.
