OCDB Whitelist Application

in ocd •  6 months ago 

Hey everyone! While @ocd is currently on a short break restructuring to more efficiently handle newcomers and adoption in the near future, we wanted to give dedicated authors on Steem a chance to recommend themselves or others to the whitelist of the @ocdb distribution bot.

Keeping it short, @ocdb is a non-profit bid bot that has grown to ~1.4 million SP over a short period and currently offers a max bid of 15 SBD with 10% ROI after curation each 24h to authors in the whitelist.

Here is our website: https://thegoodwhales.io/index.html
where you can check the whitelist (ctrl-f to find your username or someone you want to recommend), the queue of votes and the list of delegators and their current daily rewards. Anyone can delegate any amount to it and receive a daily return, @ocdb keeps nothing.

A few rules before you apply for the whitelist:

You write quality and original content in general.
You don't make a lot of rewards on average (cutoff is quite low lately, think over $5 per post displayed on Steemit.com)
English posts only (may change in the future) if you write in both languages then that is allowed.
Only recommend one author per comment, feel free to recommend more authors but please check that they aren't already on the list. https://thegoodwhales.io/index.html

The curators in the @ocd team will look through the accounts and once they've been added to the whitelist we will reply with a confirmation. In case you don't make it this time, there will be more opportunities in the future and you can work on improving your posts in the meantime.

@ocd curators automatically add authors who get curated in the normal curation rounds with the @ocd account as well.

Thanks for reading and helping make @ocdb one of the biggest accounts on the platform. We hope to see stake being distributed as wide as possible to make the platform a more balanced place for everyone!

Rewards on this post will go 100% towards the curators of @ocd.

I recommend @khaimi, there are a reasons why I suggested him to be included in the whitelist.

  1. He a good writer and have good argument in writing, his writing is also long.
  2. His photography are also interesting and high quality. you can see in his blog.
  3. I often pay attention to his writing and photography and his good content curated such as @curie @yehey and @broadcast and Indonesian curators.
  4. I know he is very enthusiastic in learning and this is his main capital so far. And also Try to see how his consistently and often use the @ocd tag.
·

Wow... Thanks my friend @deltasteem. I really aporeciate. As you know me, I am big fan for your macrophotography. Keep steem on bro.

·

Great recommendation!

·

I application here 9 days ago! But don't get any response ! @ocd @ocdb @djynn @m31 @anmitsu @acidyo sir.
Thanks all for the great opportunity.

PS. If people want to delegate any amount to @ocdb but don't know how, they can either do so through the website by logging in first with steemconnect and then going here which is located above the whitelist:

or use this link directly; change 'username' to your account name and the vests amount to the SP amount you wish to delegate (1 Steem is currently 2012.477 vests, take amount of steem and divide it by 0.0004969 to get the amount of vests you have to write in, i.e. 1000/0.0004969=2,012,477.36 vests for 1000 Steem.

http://steemconnect.com/sign/delegateVestingShares?delegator=username&delegatee=ocdb&vesting_shares=0.000000 VESTS

I know recommending yourself doesn't sound that great, but still... Posting fiction is quite challenging, if only because people don't find the time to read a whole story. My @marie-jay blog has been largely dependent on the good-will of @curie or the @ocd team and I'm thankful for the time curators take to read my stories, but that's hardly a solution or a way to grow my blog, which is why I'd like to be considered for whitelisting.

·

Supporting this recommendation 100% :)

·

you should be on the whitelist :)

I would like to recommend the curators account of the german speaking comunity @steem-bootcamp. About this account German-language contributions are rewarded by a changing curator. All donations for this account will not be paid, but solely and solely used for the account can grow. Here not only a single person would be rewarded but one the German-speaking community.

·

Right now we are supporting content in English or in both English and for example German combined, but since this is a project supporting other authors maybe it is worth a consideration as possibly an exception :)

·
·

I'd appreciate it if that were possible. We are also part of the Steem community, languages should not play a role. Many of those we support publish in multiple languages anyway. Especially members of small country communities need support to keep them connected to Steem.

If possible, may I please ask to be placed on the whitelist? I feel odd asking but do provide original content such as short fiction, Finish the Story completions, and an occasional informative piece.
Even if I'm not chosen, this is still a great opportunity for many and will give needed help to those who are struggling to earn from posting on Steemit. Thanks for that.

·

I think you would deserve it.

·
·

That's kind of you to say, thank you! :^)
I hope that you enjoy your evening/day!

·
·
·

Let's get @brisby to the whitelist!

·

You're too sweet, you know? Thanks for the cheer and for making me smile, Felix! 🤗🤗

I would like to suggest @tellurian.

·

Thank you for your recommendation @svemirac This author definitely should be in the whitelist. Fantastic work.

·

I agree!

Can I recommend two people? Both participate in doing daily freewrites and they are amazing writers.

One is @wandrnrose7 and the other is one @aislingcronin :) ♡

Also thank you for recommending @aislingcronin, would like to express my support for this recommendation.

Hi acid. Please have a look at @eirkah. She posts everyday and would be good for the bot.

·

great recommendation!

·
·

Thank you @jznsamuel :)

·

Is there a mistake in the username @crpytoandcoffee? Can't seem to find the user.

·
·

Sorry m31 @erikah. My mistake.

·
·
·

Wonderful suggestion. Lovely photography and engagement with community it seems :)

·
·
·
·

Thanks. I agree.

·
·
·
·

@m31, thank you very much for the kind words :)

·

Thank you @cryptoandcoffee.

I would strongly recommend @cicisaja for the with list, because she is constantly produce high quality content and definitely she is a real good steem user from Indonesia, she has very high quality engagement ability and one of best @pifc curator, and the other one is @macoolette, I have no doubt that she has real commitment on steem platform that can be seen on her/his engagement and high quality English post. and the last one is @gibic because he has shown his commitment on steem by producing high quality post and beside he is one of curie curator. Thank you very much for your attention

·

Thank you @el-nailul, you are the one who created great contents and I think you should put your name too. I'mnot that good engagers anymore.. something distracted me. But thanks for your recommendation.

·
·

Hehe, look one just payed it forward and I agree.

·

Thank you very much @el-nailul for the nomination! It will be an honor to be whitelisted by @ocdb as I try my best to contribute positively in this platform.

·

Thank you so much for recommending these wonderful people. Supporting all of them for whitelisting.

@pifc is already whitelisted tho :)

  ·  6 months ago (edited)

I recommend the @globalschool with it's initiator @jnmarteau for the whitelist.

·

you mean @jnmarteau ?

·
·

Yes! :)

·

Yeah this project deserves some support.

I highly recommend @plantstoplanks because she makes great food and fitness content. I recommend @moonunit for his unique quality articles about veganism, @mvd for her excellent makeup tutorials and @el-cr for his environment related content. All these authors deserve higher payouts and I hope they will be considered for the whitelist!

·

Hi @plantstoplanks is already whitelisted

·

I agree that @moonunit writes interesting article about veganism.

·

Great makeup and skin care tips by @mvd. Video is fun to watch as well.

·

I think @el-cr is a very good blogger. Whatever he writes is interesting to read.

I recommend @joannewong to join the ocdb whitelist because her dedication towards the community especially in Steemhunt, TeamMalaysia, SteemXP & Share2Steem!

Hi guys,
I know it sounds a bit selfish but I want to apply myself for the whitelist. My account @mcnestler. I try to provide quality content and engage with other Steemians. I am quite new but I had some time to figure out how things work here.
In case I am not a good fit, some recommendations for improvements would be highly appreciated.

Have a good day guys,
M

·

Yeah your work looks ok.

I've noticed a great oversight on the whitelist: @birddroppings isn't on it yet! You all should fix that!

·

Yeah this is quality shit.

Hello! Greetings, I have had your support several times, in view of that I would like to apply if you accept me on the whitelist. @equipodelta

Another recommendation I'd like to make is @herbertholmes's blog. In my humble opinion, every single post he makes is of great quality. He mostly writes music and film reviews, with an original touch I haven't found elsewhere. Even his most personal posts (those about his daily routine, his dog, snowboarding, mental health, and his journey) add great value to the platform. Hopefully, he will be encouraged to increase his activity here.

·

Thank you :) Activity to return very soon!

·

I second this nomination.

·

Oh my goodness! ^^ 100% support for this recommendation and really hope that @herbertholmes posts more often too!

·
·

Me too! He's awesome :) Thank you for the support.

Couldn't help to notice that there are a few exceptional Steemians still not whitelisted (I mean, there are a bunch, but I can't recommend them all haha). I'm mentioning them now.

@quillfire. An excellent writer that with his keen sense of humor surely makes any reader laugh a bit. A blog worth checking!

·

@ashtv. A professional videographer that has been sharing great content for quite a while now. His latest work, a new music video: 'Theresa' by Cabinet of Millionaires, still has me amazed.

·
·

This person definitely should be whitelisted

·

@onetechtraveller. He "tells stories around travel, gear and tech, with a dash of his entrepreneurial journey as a creative and life experiences". He produces the most complete gear reviews I've seen on the platform. A blog worth checking!

·
·

great reviews I agree :) Should be whitelisted

·
·
·

cheers buddy, appreciate the recognition and feedback!

Keep Being Awesome,
One Tech Traveller

·
·

Hi Zoe, really humbled and thankful for the feature and recommendation! The steemit community has been really fantastic in welcoming me and sharing the ways to enable people to travel smart and live smart through my stories. As a photographer, videographer and storyteller, creating original content of my own has always been at the heart of it and I've loved sharing it with people here!

Appreciate it and look forward to sharing more goodness :)

Keep Being Awesome,
One Tech Traveller

·

@thomcytry. The first post I saw from his blog was a reportage of the protests in Paris. With great original photographs, he transmitted well the intense experience. I thought it would be a good example of the quality of his work.

·
·

Impressive photography from Paris indeed. Looks very promising. Curious to see what this author will do in the future.

·

@digi-me. A blog with truly amazing travel posts, well-written and accompanied by beautiful photographs. Worth checking!

·
·

Absolutely, 100%

·

Thank you for your effort and letting us know about so many wonderful authors!

Approving this recommendation :)

@ocd,

I nominate @zoexantelamv. Zoe lives in Caracus, Venezuela and is an excellent writer, in both English and Spanish. Additionally, she is an active curator (Curie, etc.). On this last matter, Steemit DESPERATELY needs enthusiastic and committed Manual Curators ... and Zoe has fire in her belly.

You could do worse ... and you'd be hard-pressed to do better.

Quill

·

I'm very honored by the mention! It's glad to have one's work appreciated by the community. Thank you for this!

@zoexantelamv is one of the most amazing writers on Steemit. She likes to make free write and she's amazing on it!

·

@aidarojaswriter,

You beat me to the nomination ... I just nominated Zoe too. In any event, consider my nomination a seconding of yours.

Quill

This is an amazing initiative and I'm grateful for it.

I'd like to recommend Cristina Vaamonde (@aumonde). She is one of the most consistent artistic authors of our Spanish community. She is also a known artist in our country and a former art teacher too. Her style might not be for everyone, but it is unique and well-defined. Also, she recently joined the freewriting movement and is working on the improvement of her writing style. Despite receiving very low rewards overall, she has remained consistent and engaging.

·

I would also like to recommend myself, for I believe that the content I produce is valuable, especially for the fiction category. Being included on the whitelist would definitely give me some additional motivation to keep contributing and growing on the platform (although I plan to achieve that anyway!).

·
·

great fiction work - supporting the nomination!

·
·
·

Thank you!

·

supporting the nomination
note: @ocdb is to be used for english / bilingual posts

@sra.antropofagia as an amazing conceptual photographer. Amazing photoshoots and amazing work as make up- artist, engaged and very active user on Steemit. Her content is exceptional.

·

nice recommendation - great photographic collection on the blog.

Hey @acidyo, I'd like to be on the whitelist

I will emphatically recommend a literary talent that arises in front of our privileged eyes: it is @zoexantelamv. This writer shows off a style that often drives us very well over the passages and broken existential paths that we are currently going through. She also possesses sensory acuity, for which her writings, many times, have cinematographic qualities. Please, let's follow and support her creative growth, with a lot of attention.

I recommend @breakforbook, He a good writer - game reviews . last post https://busy.org/@breakforbook/wreckfest-my-opinion

·

thx my friend :)

@ocd You have received a 100% upvote from @intro.bot because this post did not use any bidbots and you have not used bidbots in the last 30 days!

Upvoting this comment will help keep this service running.

I would love to recommend myself @deniskj because I do plenty of posts related to sports which is pretty much an ignored tag so getting discovered is difficult. I am only 40sp away from reaching my target 100sp so that I can delegate half to OCD without affecting my normal Steem activity.

I reccomend @miroslavrc ! Great quality content :)

·

Hey @stavrin :) He is on the whitelist already

I would recomend @markkujantunen. He is active, give support, has interesting post and work for the community on steemit.

We need more active engagement on this platform. Thank you for recommending.

I wouldn't mind being on it. I normally make about a dollar per post I think.

·

Thank you for applying. I think you deserve to be on the whitelist for sure :)

·

interesting writing - nomination supported !

I recommend @janton . He posts every day and his stories are very well researched and thought out. The

Thanks for the recommendation! :)

·

Yeah that is a good recomondation.

I highly reccomend myself😬✍🤣
👍😎 ah ah😃 I enjoy making people laugh I think at this moment we need to relax and bring good vibes to this community to continue growing. I also share design related things I'm a designer with diverse passions like mistery books or those that enlights me, I make cartoons🤡 and occasional short stories..well I'm just trying to be authentic printing my own personality through writing I joined Steemit 2 months ago and would like to continue growing my blog having more exposure and of course gaining more SP and Steem🙌😁 Good luck everyone!🍀🎉🎈😁😁😁😁😁😆

I would like to recommend my friend @rosatravels who brought me to Steemit and taught me a lot of things. I am not a good blogger like her but she adds a lot of values to Steemit.

I would like to recommend myself as I have been posting consistently since the time I joined steemit. I generally posts sports accompanied with technological and random stuff sometimes but I haven't enjoyed much support. I believe my content is good enough and deserves some attention, therefore I am recommending myself for the whitelist.

·

interesting sports content - nomination supported !

·
·

Thanks

I would like to nominate myself if that is possible? It feels weird to do so, as I have been promoting other people more often, but this time I'd like to be a touch selfish...

My main account (@bengy) from which I post most of my blogs. I write daily posts, but I make a long post about classical music or game reviews roughly once a week or so as time and children permit... I've managed to be on the @curie vote a few times, so I hope it is of decent quality.

·

I second this nomination

·
·

Wow, thanks for the support!

·

Nice, I approve of your recommendation @bengy :)

·
·

Thank you for the support and the confidence!

·

I second this nomination as well!

·
·

Thank you for the vote of support!

I recommend @ilazramusic, he's an awesome writer and musician a very engaged author in the spanish community. His posts with an awesome structure and aesthetic and also, an amazing heart is the potential author you need to vote!

I suggest @zaxan because his blog is amazing, with poetry and amazing stories (also, an amazing visual aesthetic made by him).

·

Thank you for this suggestion, lovely content and imagery combined with the poetry indeed.

Yes, I'm so blatant and suggest myself @greece-lover. Currently it is the only goal that I follow others especially to support small accounts. I delegate and give away SP so small accounts with little RC are able to use Steem effectively. I create for interested accounts and give away these. I maintain a Discord and have created a curators account for the German-speaking members. All revenue will be used exclusively to support others.

I would like to recommend @psionic-tremors. She had some curies already for her great work/music and won some contests.

·

I second this nomination. @psionic-tremors is one of the best musician in this platform :)

·
·

Thank you @gibic for your kind words :) - I think I'm far away from the best here on steemit - so many great artists are accumulated on this platform - but whooa your comment made my day :))

·

Thank you for recommending this lovely Steemian, producing wonderful content :)

I've always been a modest person and loved helping the others rather than me but I would like to nominate myself @gabrielatravels this time. Would be very encouraging to keep doing what I love, and I would really love to reach to more people and make them want to visit the beautiful country I live in.

Long story short, I'm always seeking for different touristic attractions from here, more or less known by others and promoting it to the others because the tourism in Romania is not really supported or promoted in any way, so being in love with this kind of lifestyle, made me want to do all my best to show the good parts of Romania, not only the bad things promoted.
When I don't receive the upvote from @ocd, @dtube or @anomadsoul, my post rewards are pretty weak so I would be more than happy to receive this support from you guys :)

Godspeed and keep being amazing!

·

Hello, Your blog is definitely interesting!

·
·

Thank you so much! :)

·

Your content are all well written. It would be nice to have you on the list.

·
·

Thank you! 🤗

Also, I noticed that @vladcraciun is not whitelisted. And he really should be.

Currently, he doesn't have a schedule of posting on steemit but he worked as a blogger before and wrote many articles for others so their posts are full of quality and professionalism! :)

·

I agree with you. A good user, thanks for the report

·

Good recommendation! His blog outside steemit is even as interesting as his steemit posts

Posted using Partiko Android

·
·

I know, right? :)

@ocd I sincerely hope that we will soon start again with the curators of non-English post, as you know I am mainly concerned with promoting Dutch bloggers, greetings

I can recommend myself? @sugarfix I also recommend @sandwichbill, @anyaehrim, @cryptodecrypted

After recommending others in the past whitelists, I am also frowning upon and going to throw my name in the hat, @heyimsnuffles I have been on Steemit for a year a have fully supported the steem blockchain. I write about crypto markets, all financial markets (accurately and honestly), food and goodies, gaming, my pets, and really anything that comes to life. I am a crypto enthusiast that has been all in on the platform and still POWERING UP!

PS. And I own a lot of steemmonsters lol

Thanks for the consideration.

·

I second this nomination

I had previously recommended @jluvs2fly and thought that she had been added to the list. You have upvoted her content several times. She delivers wonderful original content.

I would like to suggest @gabyoraa because his photographies with a lot of documentalism and feelings are amazing. She's is an amazing photographer

·

Wow, really stunning works of photography. Fantastic recommendation and also curators of this platform should always be supported :)

Wr would like to be whitelisted. My girlfrien and me share blog that is both in Spanish and English, we write about art, music, illustration, videogames and personal things.

This will be a great opportunity for us.

Our blog is @eddiespino.

I would like to nominate @plantstoplanks. Her posts are super helpful and easy to read. Lots of wonderful healthy alternatives to the mass market foods out there.

·

Thank you recommendation. Many people could find value in @plantstoplanks content.

Congratulations @ocd!
Your post was mentioned in the Steem Hit Parade in the following category:

  • Comments - Ranked 6 with 96 comments

I would also like to make a second nomination for @musicapoetica. It is a baroque orchestra that I help write for, although we have been quiet in the last few months due to the busy real life running of the ensemble... Hoever, you can see the past quality of our posting, which we aim to keep when we begin a posting schedule again.

·

Thank you @bengy! Amazing recommendation.

·
·

No problem, hopefully we can get around to posting again from that account!

I recommend @shasta

  1. All her work is original.
  2. She actively supports the photography community via participation in contest, and being a guest judge.
  3. She responds to all comments on her post, and leaves comments on fellow contestant post and other post that she finds.
  4. She takes time to ensure that her post are formatted in pleasing manner and at the end of post provides links to other people/events, or locations about the post. An example would be providing the Alaska Volcano Observatory link when showing the volcano pictures.

I feel the photography tag and other art form tags can sometimes be overlooked by curation efforts due to being primarily a visual form verse a written form. Almost all the post have words describing the pictures or the process that people go through.

·

I agree. Brava photographer and very original his elaborations. Thanks for the tip

·

Yes! @shasta should be on the whitelist!

·

Having to look at her blog, I think she deserve it!

Posted using Partiko Android

If I can recommend someone, @krasnalek. Generally, he often writes in Polish, but he also has English entries. He mainly writes about law or history.

https://steemit.com/@krasnalek

·

Thank you @fervi, just a reminder ocdb can be used on English posts or on posts that combine both English and Polish languages for example :)

Dear @ocd, I have been looking for @ocd for a long time but my luck has not been achieved, if anyone can see the content that I gave all the original and get good appreciation. I hope someone can recommend me. Thank you

·

Thank you @khaimi, great blog

·
·

Thanks @m31. You are welcome. Need your correction too if you find in my post.

Posted using Partiko Android

I recommend @eugelys because she's one of the most amazing singer i've ever heard on Steemit. Also, she writes amazing songs and amazing poetry. A very engaged user and a lovely dtuber with a lot of potential.

·

already whitelisted!

I would love to be part!
Until now I used bid bots only 1 or 2 times..
I mostly write content in german, but also in english from time to time.
If I'm added to the whitelist I would only bid for my english content.

Looking forward to an answer. :)
Greets from germany.

I recommend @ilazramusic, @gabyoraa, @zaxan, @zoexantelamv, @exzorltg and I would like to include myself <3 They are amazing authors, artists, with exceptional content.
