@dynamicsteemians shocked the world…
On March 11, 2018 at 9:43 pm PDT, the Internet shook. In his home @dynamicgreentk had typed in just the right sequence of keys to start the trembling. At first, only he noticed. But soon, the shock waves began travelling through Steemit and Discord.
@dynamicsteemians grew from that tiny set of keystrokes into a swell of energy that resonated with Steemit newbies from every region of the globe. That’s when @dynamicgreentk realized he was on to something.
In response, new Steemians flocked to the server, expanding it to 400+ members in 4 weeks. Through collaborations with other amazing users they’ve put in place plans to help minnows learn how to thrive on Steemit, help them earn more and to work towards solving the account lifespan crisis.
Visions for the future
As you can see, @dynamicSteemians is different. @dynamingreentk created our Discord server to fill a gap he found in other groups. Most that he joined seemed focused on numbers and money. They skipped over the simple things like using steemworld.org or steemengine.net, or the fact you should make it a point to comment every day - and reply back too.
We all know how overwhelming it can be when you first create your account. It’s his goal, and those that have joined up to help, to make the transition easier by providing actionable advice in a friendly, accepting, and informative environment.
Every new Steemian has abilities and talents. New to Steemit doesn’t mean new to life. Some who joined us have already taken the opportunity to share their knowledge with the rest of our group. We’re open to anyone taking on supporting roles that fit their skills provided they are willing to participate, be positive, and help others.
Our vision is to create an atmosphere where we encourage new people to use Steemit not for money necessarily, but for sustainable growth of what Steemit should be used for...engagement, community and unity. Together we can better this platform to benefit all of us.
Who we are
In just a few short weeks, we’ve assembled a team of incredibly talented individuals. When you join us, here’s who you’ll meet:
@Dynamicgreentk, our founder
A stay at home dad who is all in when it comes to Steemit. When his union job turned into a lack luster way to collect unemployment, he saw the opportunity before him. Steemit could be a sustainable way to stay at home with his children and save them from the education system ranked worst in the country as of 2018. His motivation is real, and his sincerity is obvious in every communication he has on Steemit or Discord.
@Dynamicrypto, our investor
Also known as Troy Green, @dynamicrypto is a former Naval cryptologist (that means he’s super smart!) who now works as a UFC projectionist. He and his Filipina wife have five kids all together. He’s into memes and crypto mining in his limited spare time. He also tends to spend his hard earned retirement money on SP delegations to deserving group members (shh, don’t tell his wife!).
@ntowl, live writing classes
@ntowl is a freelance copywriter with dreams of being a published author. Her writing is all over the web, but most of it belongs to other people who paid her to write it. She came to Steemit to put the focus back on her own writing, and maybe make a few pennies while refining her craft. She enjoys sharing what she knows with others during her live writing classes on our Discord channel.
@thundercurator, post promotion
Trying to understand how post promotion works? How do you use curation trails, bots, and autovoting tools? @thundercurator has your answers.He’s posted guides on his blog, but he’ll personally answer your questions on our Discord. Just visit the thundercurator-the-post-promotion-service channel to learn more. He also runs a manual curation trail for us. You can read more about later in this post.
@luckydev, Steemit community
Founder of the Steemit Greeter’s Guild, @luckydev (aka @terminallyill) shares his knowledge of non-profit community-based initiatives to improve the Steemit platform and help attract and keep new Steemians engaged. You only need one conversation with this man to know he has a heart and a big one at that! His mind body and soul is all about helping those in need!
A mechanical engineering student from the Philippines, he is available for questions on utopian.io (a platform where open source projects are rewarded). He also creates amazing footers for our members (all you have to do is ask). As a smart, technical yet creative guy he brings a lot of knowledge and energy to our group.He is our youngest talent and one if the most helpful too. He has already became notorious all over the discord and steemit universe for his constant urge to provide help and assistance!
A professional photographer, @scottshots shares his how-to tips on taking great photos on his blog. He’s joined up with us to answer photography-related questions on his scottshots-photo-tips channel. Just take a look at his posts and you’ll see he’s the real deal - he’s even speaking at the Steem Creators Conference in Las Vegas in April.
If you think you need an “Idiots-guide-to” Steemit or Dtube, @divard has got you covered.
His aim is provide novices and new users of Dtube, Steemit, Discord and other add-on’s with instructions on how to do the basic simple operational stuff, on a shoe-string budget. Check out his vlogging-w-divard channel to ask questions and his posts on Steemit to learn more about making videos.
Our Ambassadors are the soul of @dynamicsteemians. @preshey has been here from the beginning. Her commitment and passion for us has really been instrumental in helping people find our channel as well as on Steemit. She recently also had randomly gifted sp delegated/donated to her recently! Watching her grow as she feels more and more comfortable in Steemit has been a very satisfying experience! Others have joined us over the last few weeks We have people who have Steemit projects to crypto talk to a really insanely talent music producer from Kenya who is also a musician, dj and you guessed it a superb blog writer as well! We’re so lucky to have them all!
@preshey is a welcoming voice on our Discord and a thoughtful curator and commentator on member’s posts. She always finds the time to greet new people. She also sets an example on Steemit by engaging others and participating regularly. You’ll always have a friendly person to chat with when she’s online.
The creator of our new logo (designed expertly from @dynamigreentk’s vision) runs a graphic design channel and is also one of our most active participants. A firm believer is Steemit, she’s creating a WordPress based application that is appealing to visual artists and other Steemians looking to feature their work and raise funds. You can follow her progress and her art on her blog and on her nikemas-tea-shop channel.
What to know more about cryptocurrencies? @bebeomega is the one to answer them. His crypto-talk channel is free for anyone to ask questions, and in his own words “I hope we can grow together and get rich : )”
An angel that appeared out of nowhere, @suheri helped us make it through our growing pains by organizing our Discord. His skills “legitimized” us and made our server easier for everyone to understand and navigate.
One of the best parts of Discord is the music you can listen to while chatting with your community. @Maxwell is our resident Music Producer from Nigeria who keeps the tunes streaming. He’s also a performer, Steemit blogger, freelancer and crypto-enthusiast. Drop by and say hi to him in the chat.
Before Steemit, she was an epic WordPress blogger. When she joined us, @dynamicgreentk talked to her about his vision and what he wanted done. @elsiekjay listened and ran with his advice. Her support and passion from day one are a huge part of why we are growing so fast. On our Discord, you’ll find her chatting away with people on the server and she personally messages members to offer help and support. Her dedication earned her a random, unsolicited SP delegation and a couple of huge upvotes from whales.
What we offer now
We are a group of minnows looking to support each other with the help of steemit influencers and most importantly each other. We just want to help. We do not believe in exclusivity and money as main Steemit priorities. We believe in long term organic growth through community, unity and engagement!
Our efforts so far have gathered experts and influencers that are also interested in helping other people grow on Steemit. These include a professional writer, graphic designers, photographers, curators and crypto experts. You can find them on our Discord server and their services (free of charge) are listed in the sections that follow.
@ntowl runs a live writing class Sunday and Thursdays from 8-10pm Eastern (US). She’s covered topics ranging from writer’s block to crafting the perfect headline. She welcomes anyone to ask questions in her channel at any time, even if you can’t make it live. Each class is summarized and posted on Steemit as well to help raise awareness and share the information with new Steemians who haven’t found our Discord channel yet.
@Thudercurator, @luckydev and @baa.steemit, @scottshots, and @divard are available to answer questions about curation, Steemit, utopian.io, photography, and Dlive in their respective channels. @elsiekjay answers questions and offers help with commenting on her channel.
We also maintain a Steemit-resources channel where all relevant and important links are posted. Our members can easily find what they need there without having to search all of the discord server chat.
We started the @Dynamicsteemians curation trail in collaboration with @thundercurator. Our intention is to give newbies a chance at some rewards and visibility they might not receive otherwise. Because the posts curated are from our community, and the followers are from our community, everyone benefits.
@thundercurator manually promotes posts that use our tag. He also comments and makes sure anyone spamming our tag is noted. If you join our community and tag your post according to the instructions, you’re eligible for curation.
-Tag Dynamicsteemians for a potential $0.05 upvote.
-Tag dynamicsteemians and greetersguild AND use a Dynamicsteemians footer or gif or logo with discord invite link embedded into it then you will get a potential 0.15 upvote!
Because the process is manual, and voting power is limited, there are some restrictions and stipulations:
-Thundercurator is a manual curation service
-Curation may take up to 48 hours
-no posts 3.5 days or older
-Spam and plagarisim will be flagged
-Not all posts will be curated, only the best ones
-Subject to change
Steemians who join the trail receive a reward of 0.01 autovote from @dgi, our ghost account with 1400+SP delegation. For full details on how to be part of the trail you can read @dynamicrypto’s post that explains how to join.
After just one week our trail is 44 strong!
In our search to find more people to help with our mission, we came upon @greetersguild, run by @terminallyill (or Lucky as some call him). He’s on a mission to help the Steemit community too, and together were going to do some great things.
Many in our group donated to the recent Operation Save a Newbie where both veteran and new Steemians can win rewards. New members especially benefit by having their posts highlighted and voted on. This is just one example of his good works in the community.
On our Discord channel you’ll find him posting links projects that also are working towards a better community for all of us.
We also maintain a list of Discord servers that offer help to newbies and minnows. You can find these complimentary groups in the for-minnows channel.
Where we are going
We really are just getting started and growing faster than we could have imagined. Soon we’ll be adding more classes and more collaborations that will benefit newbies and the community as a whole.
