Qurator - UPDATE 3 - Some Guidelines and Tier related changes.

in #qurator3 years ago (edited)


What is Qurator?

Qurator will be a service that helps users who spent their blood, sweat and tears on content creation to get noticed and rewarded for their efforts. Steemit has seen some incredible growth in the last few months and even though this is amazing for the platform, it might make it harder for the new Steemians to get noticed. With daily posts hovering in the 120 000's you can imagine how hard it is to get the attention you deserve for all your hard work!

That's where @qurator comes in. We want to help those who work really hard but still see little to no rewards on their posts. We are a support system that likes giving back to the community.

What exactly does @qurator do? - UPDATED

  • We will focus on users who post quality/original content. Each day 5 members will be selected and their posts will be featured in the Daily Qurator.

  • Once a day we will resteem a high-quality post from one of our members.

  • Members will get an upvote from @qurator once a day. We are limiting upvotes to once a day because we want to keep it fair for all the members. Since some post more than others. The bot can only upvote you once every 24 hours.

  • Extra trail upvotes from our Streemain @qurator trail.

  • Weekly Photography and Food competitions.

Tasty Tuesday
Photo Friday

  • Qurator exclusive pay4vote support bot, @qustodian. Great for members and investors.

Upvotes valued at 2.5-3 times the amount of SBD you send it. (limited to 1 upvote a day, any extra SBD sent will be refunded).
Investors who delegate to @qustodian get paid 90% of the SBD sent to @qustodian every 8 hours.

How do you become a member? - UPDATED

We want to give back to the community, but this also means we need some support from the community. We will charge a once off fee of 2 Steem/SBD to register as a @qurator member. You can enter your name or the name of a friend in the memo if you would like to join @qurator. This will give you a lifetime upvote membership.

Reasons you might not get approved:

  • Low Quality Content:
    • Copy-Pasted content: Taking most of the information from another article and providing very little additional information of your own.
    • Low-effort content: Posting just images, a few images and no words, an embedded video and little commentary, or anything else that might be seen as low effort.

  • Plagiarism:
    • Stealing the entire content of another creator, on Steemit or otherwise. Even if you only list a source, you are likely to end up in the above 'Low Quality Content' category. We will not approve your account and might take further steps by reporting you to @steemcleaners.

  • Incorrect Image Sourcing:
    • Google search or other blogs are not correct sources. Too much content is simply copied from the web and then sourced with a link. Just because it a source does not mean it can be used. We highly recommend only using free image sites like pixabay, freepik, freeimages, etc.

We have a team of moderators to help with account approvals. This is why it might take a while for your account to be approved. Be patient when applying, we have to do a thorough review with the majority of moderators approving your account, only then can we register you.

How can you get approved?

Contact @scrooger, @ewkawor @brumest on Discord or Steemit.chat and request a review. Once reviewed we will let you know if you qualify to become a member. Afterwards simply transfer the registration fee to the @qurator account and you are all set up. We might not respond right away as we are only human and also need some sleep every now and then. Rest assured the bot sending you sweet upvotes will never sleep!



Once approved and registered you will start receiving upvotes and be known as a fellow Qurite. This does not mean you are in the clear and can lower the quality of your content or spam random posts just to get your daily upvote. Q-Police is there to keep our members in check and works the same way as the first time being approved. Our moderators can and will review your account again if we see any suspicious activity. Warnings will be issued against bad/low quality content. Three warnings and you will be blacklisted from Qurator with no registration refund.

UPDATED - Increased Steem for Tiers.

Since SBD spiked and is staying at high levels, Steemians are seeing much more Steem than they used to. This has also made the lease rates we get from @minnowbooster more competitive. We are increasing the Steem required for Tier 3 to Tier 5.

We worked out our voting weights to ensure we always stay very close to or above 80% Voting Power. According to the number of members there will always be a basic voting weight.

There are 3 ways to get Tier access:

  • Upvote @qurator's posts for Tier 1 and Tier 2 access

We know some members don't have a lot of SP and even their 100% upvote is not worth $0.01. We will still count your vote if we see a 100% vote even if it's below $0.01.

Below your can see examples of upvotes that will and will or will not count towards the Tiers:

1% = $0.00 will not be counted
100% = $0.00 will be counted
Any % = at least $0.01 will be counted

Qurator is a community project to benefit not only one, but many users. Most of our profits go towards leasing SP to give better support to all our members.

  • Delegate to @qurator for Tier 3 to Tier 5

  • Send Steem directly to @qurator for Tier 3 to Tier 5 (40 day upgrade)

Steem Power to @qurator. (We can help with that, simply visit sp delegation support in our Discord channel.)

TIER 0.pngBasic 2 STEEM/SBD registration fee. Basic upvote for life from @qurator.
Tier 1.png4 Steem sponsored lease = Tier 1 for 40 days or Delegate 100SP to @qurator or Upvote @qurator's posts 4+ times a week
Tier 2.png6 Steem sponsored lease = Tier 2 for 40 days or Delegate 200SP to Qurator or Upvote @qurator's posts 7+ times a week
Tier 3.png8 Steem sponsored lease = Tier 3 for 40 days or Delegate 300SP to @qurator
Tier 4.png10 Steem sponsored lease = Tier 4 for 40 days or Delegate 400SP to @qurator
Tier 5.png12 Steem sponsored lease = Tier 5 for 40 days or Delegate 500SP+ to @qurator

What if I upvote and delegate?

Yes, delegations and upvotes stack.

Example: Delegating 300SP and upvoting the Daily Qurator 7+ time a week will place you in a T5 membership slot.

After reviewing the Tiers you can decide how you would like to jump up in tiers or invest. @scrooger is available on Discord for any assistance or questions or you can comment on this post if you have any questions/concerns.

  • Please note: For the upvote related Tiers, we check the upvotes on posts once a week (Every Sunday) and adjust the Tiers accordingly on Monday.

  • For the Sponsored lease Tiers please send the right amount of STEEM to @qurator with the Tier number as your memo.

All the members can see their Tier Status once a week it will be posted in a separate post each Monday. Rest assured as investors and members go up or down in tiers their voting weights will be adjusted at the end of each day.

Help us, help you.

The majority of our profits will go to leasing SP so we can support our members with quality upvotes. We will however start using some of the SBD profits to pay our Qurator Staff members. They work long and hard to bring you the Qurator service and also need to see some rewards for their efforts. =)
