Steem Greetings fellow Steemitians,

Steem Cameroon Community writes this application this day to express her desire to be selected again for Season 14 of the Steemit Engagement Challenge as announced by the Steemit team, through this post on @steemitblog.

This is our fouth time applying for this challenge, as season 6 helped us grow Steem Cameroon community account strength, which we use to curate articles in the community, and all Admins and mods have decided to stay in at least Club5050 at all times, to help grow the community and Steemit as a whole. In addition, via season 6 we were able to set up a well-structured way of reviewing all articles/contest entries in the community, which will go a long way again this season provided we are selected.

History of Steem Cameroon Community and its Goals

The Steem Cameroon community was created by @saxopedia on 12/12/2020, with @fombae being the co-founder and ever since then, the community has been welcoming to not only Cameroon steemians but steemians all over the Steemit platform. From about 10 subscribers at the date of community creation to 3,670 subscribers as of the day of writing this application and 52 active posters.

Steem Cameroon community was created with the goal or aim of connecting steemians with divest cultures, ideas, and knowledge, in a manner that can never be achieved individually. Most especially gives Cameroonian steemians a place to belong.

Administrators and Moderators of the Steem Cameroon Community.

Steem Cameroon Community is presently managed by four (4) personnel, two (2) of which are administrators and 2 moderators, all of which are of Cameroonian nationality.

Community Curation Account

Steem Cameroon Community has one official curation account (@steem-cameroon). Created with the aim of supporting all members of the Steem Cameroon Community who publish good articles that meet the Steemit etiquette and Steem Cameroon community rules. This account was created upon the creation of the Steem Cameroon community and presently owns 30,595 Steem Power and 33,058 delegated, giving an effective Steem Power of 63,653 SP.

How it is built up

The community account is built up in three main ways.

  • First is by powering up post payout through the community publications (in cases where the posts are set up at 100% power up)
  • Secondly by freewill delegations from both all Steem Cameroon admins and mods, and Steem Cameroon members.
  • Lastly, by free setting @steem-cameroon beneficiary of any percentage of post payout.
Who holds the keys

All Administrative personnel of the Steem Cameroon Community hold the Private Posting Key of the community's curation account, while its Private Active Key and MASTER KEY are held by founder and co-founder (@saxopedia and @fombae).

The Community’s current policy for checking and commenting on posts

For the purpose of the engagement challenge, the admins of Steem Cameroon Community established a Google sheet whereby it is been updated with the links of all new articles in the community just to make sure we leave no article unreviewed.


All administrative personnel of Steem Cameroon used the above sheet for the season 6 challenge to keep track of all articles published in the community and to facilitate the reviewing, curating, and commenting process of all articles. This sheet has the following fields:

SN -> for the number of articles
Author -> account name of the person who publishes the article
Country -> Country of origin of the author
Club Status -> Club status of the account
Link -> links of the article published
Published Date -> Date of publication
Plagiarized -> to record all plagiarized articles
Admin -> to record the name of the admin or mod who reviewed the article
Review -> If the article is reviewed or not
Curator vote -> if the article in question has received a vote from either the Steemit Team, booming, or community curators.

Commenting on post

The administrative personnel of Steem Cameroon together came up with a comfortable way of commenting on all articles. A sample screenshot of our comment can be seen below.

How we help our members improve the quality of their posts
  • Communication between community members and admins. Steem Cameroon has both a discord channel and a telegram channel which is open and welcoming to community members and aspiring community members, whereby we get in touch with members, share our thoughts, opinions, and ideas on publishing quality articles, and also work effectively as one to build a better Steem Cameroon.

  • The Steem Cameroon Community runs weekly contests to keep its members active and engaging, which also helps members improve the quality of their posts over time.

  • There is a compulsory requirement of at least 250-word counts on every publication before it is qualified to receive support from the community account, admins, and mods.

  • Explicit articles are usually published via the community account to guide members on the appropriate/correct use of tags to help fetch articles easily which intends to facilitate the review and curation process of articles.
