International How-To Guide Contest [Round #5 Welcome Contest][$100 in Prizes + Delegations]

in minnowsupport •  4 months ago

Throughout this Welcoming Contest, we have been reviewing the aspects of Steem which new users need to learn, and rewarding users for making it easier to help others to learn how to succeed on Steem(it). During this round of the Welcoming Contest we will be considering a variety of languages, which a new user might use, and the best guides to help them.

(By: @blueberryfoxy)

Athough English is the most popular language, Steem is an International Community. There are many people, with many languages who use steemit.

In this post by @eastmael, we can easily see which languages are used most on steemit.

It is your task to find the best guides in each language, and list them here.

This contest is not exclusive to those languages

  • Preferably the guides are in both english and your chosen language, so they are easy to review, and this help people to learn new languages!
  • Better than individual guides is a post linking to them all.
  • Bonus if you write a post with a good collection of all guides for your language.

  • List here, a post within the last two months that catalogs all of the help guides for a particular language, or create your own post that catalogs all of the help guides for a particular language.

.5 for listing individual how-to guides
.75 for listing a post which links to multiple guides for your language.
5 for creating a post with a good collection of guides for that language.

up to $100 in liquid rewards... PLUS!

2 * 4 week 150 sp delegation for the top entrants.

..and Thank You for Participating! Together we can make Steem(it) a more welcoming community for Everyone!

This contest is awesome... I would like to contribute with a very detailed series of Turkish guide. It helped me a lot in the beginning and it is my reason to come to SteemIt.
The guide consists of 12 individual chapters which explains different aspects in detail.
Unfortunately, the starting 8 chapters are more than 2 months old so they will be out of contest.
I will start with Chapter9 and translate the headers to English.

Anyway, for anyone interested I will give the link for the first 8 chapters.

These are written by @monomyth and @sndbox thanks to them.

Let's go :

These are in contest participation.

As I said, I also want to share the previous chapters out of contest since they are really good.

These are the best content in Turkish on this subject I have seen so far in Steemit.

Stay positive.

Amazing !

For the french guides, there is one and only place : the collaborative website : where every french people who create a guide can submit it over there. We check if we don't have it already / which one is better - I mean, not better, but more complete and at the date (not old guides so).
I hope you will like it.

In the website you will find differents sections :

  • A video section tutorials about everything you need to know to have succes on Steem
  • A section about Community (every things you need to know to join steem, be part of the community)
  • The FAQ translated in french
  • The Steem white paper translated in french
    (we are working on the bleu paper now, would be release in march).
  • All you need to know to use Markdown and have nice articles :-)
  • All you need to know to write well in french (how to deal with the mistakes/ the correct french way to write)
  • The Minnow Coaching Section
  • Reviews of many many Steem tools (we are generally the first to release a tutorial about it because we spent our days on the tag steemdev :D )
  • A review of all the Steem App (all the gates to enter in the Blockchain Steem)
  • All the bots (even if we don't really like them)
  • The " cools " project on steem (if a Steemian has a crazy idea, it may be featured here :-) - Steemfest or Steem B n B for example)
  • One section only to understand what's a witness steem
  • Severals tutorials to use Steem at the high level (for example to invite your friends to Steem / to publish automaticaly from Steem to FB-Twitter)
  • All the exchanges plateforms (where you can buy steem / change your steem into fiat)

This website is open-source and everyone can translate our videos / articles. You just need to mention the original author :-)

We also have a complete ebook about " How to get started on Steem ". It will be release on January. And translated in severals languages.

When I first started in Steem, I was introduced into the CN community and I learnt a lot from these tutorials as well. I am truly grateful for all the great works they had done and helped me along the way too.
Special credits to all the authors: @lemooljiang, @deanliu, @htliao, @tumutanzi, @catwomanteresa, @skenan, @oflyhigh, @justyy, @nationalpark, @wang-peilin, and @skenan.

I cannot explain the magnitude of value this welcoming contest is bringing to Steemit as a platform. One of the most helpful and community-oriented contests ever organized. I am humbled to win the last one and I am willing to help people participate in this one as well, as I write in English only (and Urdu is rare as of now).

Anyone who is a good translator is welcome to translate my guides into thier language and spread the love to their communities.

I have resteemed this contest post in the hope of getting more people to participate so that we can have more guidance available for people of all backgrounds.

I am from India and We have Hindi (हिंदी) as Native Language. Can any tutorial in that language be eligible for the Contest?


yes! This contest is to make a collection of the guides for all languages


Can i make a series of posts regarding the tutorials or do i have to make a single post?


if you are writing guides, then write them however you want, you have approximately 6 days... not sure how many guides you are going to write.

are you collecting guides to post here?

either way, post all of your entries as links to the guides in one comment (edit the comment and add more as you go, if necessary)

see above entries for examples on proper entries for the contest.
