New Steemians Project Launch

in #introduceyourself3 years ago (edited)

Hi Fellow Steemians

I am Gaman. I have been in the cryptocurrency scene for quite awhile now and am glad to find this awesome community. I am an aspring witness and I would like to help the Steem community grow and prosper. I believe that if we handhold new members of the steem community, we can retain more members to be part of this amazing group. So, I decided to launch a project called: "New Steemians".

Main Initiatives

There are three main initiatives for this project:

  1. To educate new members of the community
  2. To help make their post more visible
  3. To give extra rewards to new members of the community

So, for the first initiative. I started a new series of articles which aims to educate them on the security, different terminologies, and best practises in the steem community. Hopefully, this can guide them thru the usage of steem, specially for those new into the cryptocurrency scene. I have written the first article which talks about security: https://steemit.com/steemit/@gaman/new-to-steem-series-1-my-number-1-rule-secure-your-owner-key-failure-to-adhere-to-this-rule-results-in-massive-loss

For the second initiative, I decided to resteem the articles of members of this project. Every hour, I will be picking 1 article to resteem. To limit the number of articles qualified, there are 3 requirements:

  1. First, you must be following me. This serves as an intention you wish to be part of the project.
  2. Second, you must have less than 500 followers.
  3. Your article must be at least 1000 characters long.

For the third initiative, I plan to host a weekly game that will have a monetary prize for new steemians. This game is open to all steemians, with the following criteria:

  1. Less than 500 followers
  2. Contributed at least 1 article (min. 1000 chars long) during the week

Do You Want to Contribute Too?

If you would like to take part in this project and help the steem community, just reply to this article. You can contribute in a lot of ways.

  1. You can help write an article for the New to Steem series.
  2. You can help resteem the articles.
  3. Suggest good ideas that we can help new steem members.
  • Disclaimer: I reserve the right to make any changes and amendments to the above.

Upvoted, followed, and resteemed -- thanks! I will take advantage of this service at some point, thanks for making it. (Although another 200 or so and I won't qualify, which is also pretty neat! :) )

I like that your "welcome bot" welcomed yourself on this post. :)

Up voted and followed you thnx for keep supporting

me to the same thanks for your suggestion commented in my post

Hello!! I'm from the Philippines. I'm a newbie as well. Please do help me and follow my blogs. I will follow yours as well. Hope we can all be good friends. :)

Nice initiative @gaman. Upvoted and followed. I'll like to be part of it. I've less than 500 followers. I'll be glad if you can help resteem this, it will be very useful to newbies in the cryptoworld

How did you talk to the bot?

Thank you so much from @gaman to all our senior friends, you all rock.

A pleasure, I'm new on this platform,I invite you to visit my profile, there I introduce myself.

I have started it and so far only few have passed the requirement of resteem. I will think about making it easier.

A nice plan for new people coming on board. I wish you much success. Cheers.

Hello!! I'm from the Philippines. I'm a newbie as well. Please do help me and follow my blogs. I will follow yours as well. Hope we can all be good friends. :)

I was wondering this too. Maybe we need more rep

I built a "tree" for all of my content. Everything to date meets those requirements. There's plenty of minnows waiting for a resteem! If not resteem one person twice.

thanks for the information. I will contribute here. i like it. I will always follow you. thanks by, @ boyasyie

Unfortunately i am so new to steem i dont even know how to resteem yet 😔

There's an arrow bent back on itself at the end of an article. Hover over it and it should tell you if you have the correct one.

Why don't I have a resteem icon on this post? .It's usually next to the reply button but nothing there.

You can only resteem before payout time, then the button disappears :(

Found that information here: https://steemit.com/steemit/@cryptohazard/so-we-can-t-resteem-an-old-past-payout-post

It would be really nice to be able to continue to share information.

Ah so that's it that's why i didn't see the bend arrow here.well anyway thanks for the info. And hope ul follow.me😊 im just new here. Promise I'll follow u back.

Hello!! I'm from the Philippines. I'm a newbie as well. Please do help me and follow my blogs. I will follow yours as well. Hope we can all be good friends. :)

I don't see that kind of arrow.

Looks like this:

Why do people resteem? And can or should you resteem your own posts?

Hi @wales. There is a reward for resteeming, replying and upvoting. It all falls under the banner of curating. No, you can only resteem other's posts. Don't resteem if you have just posted as it places the article you have resteemed on the TOP of your feed. Wait at least 3 or so days and then read interesting posts, upvote and resteem if it adds decent curator rewards.

If you have an old post that you want to get attention , someone can resteem it for you. It is frowned upon to re-submit a post you have done previously and can have you downvoted. Hope that makes sense!

Thanks, I've read your post over and over and am still trying to understand it...

It is not there. I cannot comply with the Resteem requirement.

I've never been on Tweeter, so peculiarly enough I don't know what a retweet is - hence I don't know what a resteem is... could you catch me up on this?

sure, a resteem is when some one reposts your post for you.
Since it is a feed, after a few hours your post is really far down and not many people see it anymore. when someone resteems your post it puts it back up at the top of the feed and shares it on their page with all of their friends as well.
i think that explains it a bit?

Thanks for the explanation. I think there still a lot to learn about steemit.

Steemit is a little difficult to learn but well worth it. just keep at it every day and then one day you will wake up and have $1,000 in your account :) that can only happen on steemit
goodluck my friend. here is an upvote to get you going.

Hello!! I'm from the Philippines. I'm a newbie as well. Please do help me and follow my blogs. I will follow yours as well. Hope we can all be good friends. :)

What is an upvote? Should I resteem my own posts?

An upvote is the little green circle with a arrow point up next to the dollar amount. U click it if u like an article or a comment.
U cannot resteem ur own articles, only other peoples.
😊

great. That is true. I hope also one day coud share more than $ 1.000 with all comunities from steemit.coment.gif

would be kind of you to do so. Achieving 500 followers seems like a distant target.

@gaman greetings a pleasure I hope to be in touch with you.

Please help me upvote my blogs :) and hope we can be good friends :)

In all due respect to you @gaman, 1,000 words is a lot. And remember quantity does not necessarily mean quality. I am sure you know this and as blogger for 10 years myself I try to mainly concentrate on quality.

Thanks for what you are doing and hope you may have changed that requirement ??

Sincerely,
Robert

@gaman i've just followed you upvoted and resteemed am a newbies here i have less than 500 followers here help me pls thanks

How do you resteem something?

Hi @gaman!

This sound like good support for new members to boost their visibility. I admire your effort, and would love to be a part of your project!

Regarding my own articles, only my intro is over 1000 characters. For the rest I actually strive to keep the ammount of text to a "minimum" - having my photos and videos doing most of the "talking". May therefor not fit that rule of yours.

followed you

Hello friend please kindly help me upvote my blogs thank you am a new steemer here.

A pleasure, I'm new on this platform, I invite you to visit my profile, there I introduce myself.

You have some good ideas here, it would be nice to contribute in some way

Welcome to Steem Community @gaman! As a gentle reminder, please keep your master password safe. The best practise is to use your private posting key to login to Steemit when posting; and the private active key for wallet related transactions.

In the New Steemians project, we help new members of steem by education and resteeeming their articles. Get your articles resteemed too for maximum exposure. You can learn more about it here: https://steemit.com/introduceyourself/@gaman/new-steemians-project-launch

Great initiative... the direction to promote NEW STEEMians and educate on the STEEM platform is a WIN WIN for My Good Grabs... Upvoted, following and resteemed. CHEERioS!!

hey this is a great idea, i could really use a resteem if im accepted, written two posts so far and lots more yo come from @medicalgrower thanks for the welcome!

Great ideas, please count me in!!
I am independent Journalist that has been reporting on the Ukraine War, in anti Kiev- "Rebel" DPR/LPR territory for last almost 4 years( no other Western Journalist has been reporting here as long as me).
I have just been on Steemit for 2 weeks. I am loving it so far. I am happy to be the first (as far as I can tell) independent War correspondent on Steemit and Dtube. Steemit seems like a great platform with alot of potential to help spread the word on the what is really happening in the Ukraine War & show the War crimes that have been happening in Donbass. The idea of people really help others with upvotes is amazing. I am happy to bring the breaking news on the Ukraine War to the community. I just need to get a following so any helping you could give me to spread my reports I would appreciate. Thanks

Hit me up if you want to chat!

You are a role model for me on here. Thank you for guiding me to this post and for taking care of newcomers. I wish to push it forward as well.

공감 합니다.

i will try to contribute with resteeming and long articles.:)

that is great job i am with you, count me inthumpup.png

hey, can i get in on resteemed stuff? trying to get noticed is hard!

Great to see this!

great info and project, thanks

This project sounds very interesting. I am hoping that platforms such as steemit will give ordinary people an opportunity to express their creativity and opinions. Let's face it this is something that our society provides little opportunity for as it so focused upon serving the interests of the rich and powerful.
If you could resteem this article I would be most obliged.

https://steemit.com/america/@saltycat/america-s-internal-colonies

Wow. It's a lovely project and I would love to get Resteemed by the community. Thanks Guys.

Thanks for sharing this great service supported by upvoting and resteeming i also followed

Thank you for this wonderful and encouraging project for "New Steemians" like myself. I have upvoted, followed, and resteemed.

How do I submit articles to you to be considered for resteeming?

This is a sound project. I guess one of the issues is a transient population. A little education at the beginning can flatten out an otherwise daunting learning curve that may cause attrition otherwise.
I really fancy writing several newbie guides while it's all still fresh. I think a slightly irreverent, satirical slant may work best to slip information in seamlessly.
I'll have a crack at it this week.

Good idea! I will watch for it.

very helpful post for lots of us..thanks a lot for this..upvoted yeah

Hi @gaman I'd like to resteem this but no resteem button visible.

Hi @gaman I´m interested in participating in your project (Well at least until I get 500 followers lol)
I just Followed and Upvoted
Congratulations for the initiative
Keep on! ;)

very initiative feel glade to read good work we should all help the new bees thanks for your support @gaman

You are doing a nice job sir @gaman and i can see two of my post got resteemed by you and its great for a minnow like me and its one type of inspiration to stay afloat in steemit.

Thanks a lot once again....Have a Great Day...

I like this idea. As I am learning more about how this whole project works, I am continually impressed by all of the side projects that people have built on top of this platform. I like the idea of you guys helping out new users because it is tough being new to all of this. Being a new user myself, I initially clicked on the trending tab and said to myself I can create content like this. Little did I know, great content is only one piece of the puzzle. Thanks again for helping us newbies out! :)

This is a great initiative @gaman and I appreciate you doing this. I just joined the Steem community and I'm interested in the community and learning more about this. Thank you for putting this together!

Hye ..its was really helpful for new steemitians like me, I have upvoted and followed you . Can you explain me about the concept of resteem..

That's what I'm wondering too.

But there is no reply from anyone ..

Do you have any videos on this topic?

The Daily Leek is following you, @Gaman. If you find yourself needing some of the bestest news in the multiverse, look no further than @thedailyleek.

@gaman, i buy your vision and initiative of this project because as a new person here, it can be tiring to be honest and many new steemians out there are already frustrated, some are lost, just wandering in steemit without proper direction and guardian...i really want to be part of this project, not only for me but most especially to help others. Permit me to resteem this post.

This is awesome. I would love to be a part of this project.

Thanks for the information and help you're providing. I'm new to Steemit and to the cryptocurrency world and sometimes is a bit overwhelming. Resteemed. Cheers

Followed and Upvoted!

I upvoted and followed only one suggestions. I think 1000 words may be to long. Just my two cents.

I would love to belong to this initiative, is not there a problem I publish in Spanish?

Nice initiative. And also thanks for resteeming my post.
As i said in my reply, i would love to share new steemers some info. When i'll make the posts i will publish on my website and here.

Cheers

I've been posting practically everyday, and studying how Steem works. I'm still getting the hang of it. I got some great tips from @re-engineer on how to use Markdown to enhance my posts. It was so helpful. Heres the markdown guide

I've noticed that some articles have far more rewards than others yet they contain the same "introduce yourself" info. Very basic, maybe one picture.. nothing too special and the rewards are out of this world in just a few hours. Is it because they used bots? They had one whale upvote on it? I don't get it... Any tips would be appreciated! I love the Steem community and want to improve myself so that I can improve the content I share.

Thanks for this valuable information @gaman. This is a big help for us , newbies here in STEEMIT. I upvoted your post and following you.

This is pretty cool! I have never realized it until now.

I enjoyed reading your post and I would like to learn . Going to start following you Thank you for sharing that information. @mannyfig1956

It'd be great to be a part of this program. Nice that someone is thinking about the new members of the community!

I'm loving the support in here! I can help with No.1 and 2.
Looking forward!
Best wishes!

The support in here is amazing! I would really like to be a part of this. I can help with No.1 and 2!

It's really a worthy task to follow as well and be part of it .. Thanks for the help! @gaman

Thanks @gaman would like to be contributor too....

hi samnix, how would you like to contribute?

Could contribute with articles that might be of interest...

Looks interesting! Every newbie struggles hard to get upvotes, So maybe your initiative will be helpful.

Good day,
Thanks for sharing this. I think it will help to get more used in the way Steemit works.
Question: since I am fluent Dutch speak, I have not notice a Dutch community yet, since I see quite some German, French, Spanish, ... posts running around as well.
Any idea how to get started?

Thank's Gaman for your advice, i neet your support forever!
