This week @tryskele suggested a tribe and donated 200 of the tribes tokens to @pifc to give PIFC a little voting power. Thank you @tryskele for your donation!

So this week we will feature the Natural Medicine Tribe. The tag for this tribe is #NATURALMEDICINE and their token is LOTUS.

While not required please try to fine at least 1 post from the featured tribe each week. We will be continuing the featured tribes as it's been fun seeing different types of content. Hope everyone has been having fun with this. As always we are open to suggestions so don't be afraid to speak up.



The Pay It Forward Curation Contest is all about increasing exposure for undervalued high quality posts and increase the level of engagement on Steem. You can take part by entering the contest or just helping visit the entries and their featured posts. Everyone chooses their level of involvement and we appreciate the efforts of everyone who helps promote quality content on Steem.



Make sure to check back to this post often and scroll to the end to see a list of this week's curation entries! This list is updated on a regular basis to help make it easy for you to visit the entries and help support the great content that has been curated.


How to Enter the Pay It Forward Curation Contest?

To enter the Curation Contest you will find 2 high quality blog posts written by reputation level 65 or lower steemians and then write a curation style blog post like this entry by @viking-ventures from week 16 which won a Judges Choice Award. The idea is to highlight both posts and why you thought they were high quality.

To be clear the Level 65 max is only for the bloggers who are featured, anyone may submit a curation entry.


Rules:

  • Curation Style Post that highlights your 2 featured blog posts.
  • Link to the high quality undervalued (less then $2 earnings at time of featuring) blog posts in your curation post. Keep in mind that many will follow this link and upvote so pick a post that isn't close to payout!
  • Include a link to this contest in your entry post
  • The 2 bloggers you curate need to be rank 65 or below
  • You need to comment on this post with a link to your post, this is how we track everything
  • Please Upvote and Comment on the posts you are featuring

👉👉Clarification for Quality Required for valid Entry👈👈
We are looking for Quality Original Content and that post spells out what that means. If you are new please read it.

No less then 200 words of original written content. A single photo is fine as long as there is 200 words with it. 200 words is about 12 lines of content.
** Art posts that show at least 3 steps of progression will not need to have 200 words of content, but still attempt to explain their art. Please use some common sense here.

Here's my entry for week 85... hope it gets approved ^_^

Entry #1.

I had commented this on your post, but thinking here might be better for discussion.

Should we allow more flexibility on the post reward level when we are featuring a tribe to allow the best content to be featured? If so anyone have a suggested level to use as a cut off?

For some tribes that might be a good idea. For Natural Medicine, I don't think so. I'm seeing lots and lots of good posts under $2.00.

Your on time. I'll visit everything tomorrow and cast votes.
