DISCUSSION: Best way to handle Community Curators program requirements (starting 1st of May)
|If you, dear reader, aren't in any way related to Project.hope then skip this publication. |
However if you're part of our community, then pleaseinvest 10min of your time to read it carefully.
Share your feedback with me. I read all comments and I will absolutely appreciate it.
Many of you are already aware, that Project HOPE is trying to be FULLY NEUTRAL within recent conflict between Justin vs old witnesses. Our goal is to support group of content creators collaborating with us, regardless if their activity is mostly focused on steem or hive blockchain. Or both.
Several days ago, we've applied to become one of Steemit Inc. (STINC) Community Curators. Our efforts has been noticed and PH will receive some solid support, which will in return allow us to grow even futher.
Starting on 1st of May we will have an access (posting key) to account, which will be topped up with 200k STEEM POWER. This account will be used to support interesting posts published WITHIN OUR COMMUNITY.
There isn't that many strict rules and requirements which we will have to follow, however there is one and I would like to mention at this stage:
We are looking for curators to vote for as wide a range of accounts as possible, rewarding quality posts, particularly those that are not cross-posted on other platforms.
That's a tough one, right? In other words, STINC is asking to use those 200k SP to upvote only content which haven't been published elsewhere (we can clearly assume, that they mean HIVE chain).
I actually fully understand that and I think many of us could see it coming. We may all expect that both platforms will do their best to ensure, that its content is not cross-posted between them. Luckily STINC decided to "reward" authors for their "loyalty" instead of punishing with downvotes. I strongly believe, that encouragement always works better in comparisson to punishment.

Have a look at an interesting discussion I had with a few users (regarding this topic).
SHARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON THAT REQUIREMENT
Either way, I have few days to organize it and obviously I've so many concerns and question marks. Reality is, that verifying every publication before I could upvote it - just to ensure, that it have not been posted previously on other platforms - it can be very troublesome and time consuming.
I would like to hear your view and thoughts on this particular issue. Perhaps your ideas would help me to come up with a reasonable process.
MY OWN SUGGESTION
I've discussed this topic with few of you already via Discord / telegram. And so far the suggested solution is as followed:
You (as an author) would have to be our
"first filter". Obviously I need to assume, that we will all play fair and in my opinion - I have all reasons to believe that I can trust you.
So, let's say that you (as an author) would initially post your publication on STEEM blockchain only. In that case share link to your post on our discord server. You will find "STEEM-only" group.
Wait a few days to receive decent upvote and within this time - ensure not to re-post your article on any other platforms. Obviously if you will cross-post into facebook, linkedin, hive, twitter etc. few days later, then I will not be stopping you from doing it. After all each one of you would be the author and owner of created content and I'm in no position to stop you from cross-posting (with delay) it to other sites.
WHAT I NEED TO ENSURE, is that this content isn't cross-posted INTO steem blockchain. That is a "request" made by STINC (Steemit Inc) and I think it's very fair request. Rewarding content creators with extra upvotes instead of punishing them with downvotes is definetly a better way to encourage users activity.
All those articles shared on our DISCORD (within "steem-only" group) will be viewed by a representative from project.hope core team. He will do it on the 4-5th day since the publication took place and upvote it with this additional maximum 200k SP.
Why just 4-5th day you may ask? Let me explain ....
Strength of received upvote will depend on 2 things:
- we will check if author is replying to received comments (I believe it is crutial to ensure, that all authors engage back with their audience and followers).
- we will also check if author is engaging with others in comment section (we promote those, who participate in our community growth; We focus on those who not only create content, but also invest their own time into reading other users publications and sharing their thoughts, dropping some valuable comments)
How does it sound? Am I making sense?
Share you thoughts. I read all comments.
