Qurator - UPDATE - Cheaper Tier Access and Increased Registration fee.

in #qurator7 years ago


Qurator registration fee increase

Qurator is growing fast and we want to ensure long-term growth and support for our members and investors.
We just hit the 100 member mark and will now be increasing the 1SBD/STEEM registration fee.

NEW Registration fee - 2SBD/STEEM

More info about 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 100 000'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.

What exactly does @qurator do? - UPDATED

  • We will focus on users who post quality 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.

  • Extra trail upvotes from our Streamain @qurator trail.

  • Weekly competitions.

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. We do however reserve the right to decline certain accounts if we feel they do not contribute to posting good quality content or simply find too much plagiarism or spam posts. We have declined members before, we only support original content. We also offered tier voting weights for investors and upvoters of The Daily Qurator.

Contact @scrooger or @gingerninja 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! We also have an awesome Discord channel that will spring to life once all you awesome members join. The Discord link will be sent after registration.


UPDATED - Cheaper Tier Access.

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

Example 1: With 10 members each member gets a 100% upvote.
Example 2: With 20 members each member gets a 50% upvote.

Using the base upvote weight we can have Tiered Upvote Weights for investors of @qurator. Because the investors help @qurator grow bigger, the base upvote weight goes down and the investors get bigger upvote weights. This way even the non-investors still benefit since the overall Steem Power of @qurator increases.

There are 3 ways you can become an investor in @qurator.

  • Upvote The Daily Qurator post each day. This can easily be automated by using Steemvoter, follow this guide to set up Steemvoter.
  • Send a certain amount of Steem (values below) to @qurator with Tier # as you memo. This will lease SP for @qurator and give you access to a Tiered Status Upvote.
  • Delegate Steem Power to @qurator. (We can help with that, simply visit sp delegation support in our Discord channel.)

After reviewing the Tiers you can decide how you would like to jump up in tiers or invest. @gingerninja and @scrooger are 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 Daily Qurator upvote related Tiers, we check the upvotes on posts once a week (Every Sunday) and adjust the Tiers accordingly

  • 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.


Streemian Trail Account!

You may have noticed that your upvotes from @qurator packed a little bigger punch! @gingerninja, @scrooger, @theleapingkoala and a few others are now trailing the @qurator account and will be sending you some extra upvotes from our side as well. It's not much but every upvote counts!

You can also follow the trail and send upvotes to fellow Qurator members when @qurator upvotes them. To set up a Streemian account only takes a few minutes and is a great way to earn some extra curation.

You can follow this GUIDE to set up your Streemian account.

After setting up your account you can follow this trail on Streemian:


We suggest NOT following the trail at 100% since we do not want to drain too much of your precious voting power. Play around with your percentage and if you see your voting power being drained too much you can simply lower your % in Streemian. If you have a lot of voting power to spare you can consider a larger %.

If you struggle or have questions come visit our #support channel on Discord.

Help us, help you.

All post payouts and registration fees will go towards growing the @qurator account. We believe in sharing our power and not pocketing it for ourselves. Great posts need to be noticed and we want to help with that.

A question from a noob. Where in discord shall I go? What channel or server? Please put a link to make it easier for a noob like me, if you don't mind.
Thank you very much

Currently the Discord channel is only for registered members. =) We normally share the link in Discord PM or Steemit.chat after a user registered.

I just want to see if I qualify to be a member but I don't know which channel to find @scrooger or @gingerninja on Discord or Steemit.chat. I am registered on discord PAL and I am also using steemit.chat.. just don't know how and where to contact @scrooger or @gingerninja to be reviewed


Will PM you one Steemit.chat

We did however go ahead and reviewed your account, all looks good! You can go ahead and send the registration fee so we can register you. =)

Just sent my registration fee thank you very much

Hi! How can I contact you?

A debt of gratitude is in order for what you are doing. I have not yet sufficiently earned SBD to join but rather when I arrive, @qurator be my first stop.

Thanks for what you are doing. I have not yet earned enough SBD to join but when I get there, @qurator be my first stop.

have given you an upvote on your last david an goliath drawing to help you along on your way to the 2sbd
(once you hit 1 sbd you should get a randowhale upvote, that will speed you along to hit 2sbd)

Thanks for considering us so strongly, here is a little upvote to help you along!

It's sort of an interesting situation. I'm still figuring out Steem and found a link to read about Qurator. But I've been pumping almost all of my (admittedly small) earnings into SP. So now I'm wondering if that was a bad call because I also don't have 2 SBD to use here. But I'm a quarter of the way there and can start doing more split-payout posts. Live and learn, I suppose.

Will you consider updating the stats and prices?
Yes?? Big thanks!!

I was wondering (ok, I can practically feel you rolling your eyes right now, but hear me out) what if I fulfill multiple requirements for a tier, would that qualify me for a bonus level up? For example, if I delegate 200 SP and upvote the Daily Qurator 7 times in a week, both tier 2 requirements, would I perhaps qualify for tier 3 (if you keep shaking your head like that, your gonna hurt your neck)?

Hahaha, so funny. Good question @gregory-f.

Will let @gingerninja or @scrooger answer that :D

We don't roll our eyes, we do 3 backflips and then sit down again. Hehe. (seriously though we are chilled and always willing to listen to suggestions/ideas)

9 Days... I was expecting this question for 9 days. =) The answer is yes, we will bump you up. Delegations and upvotes will bump you up in tiers. We will only be doing this for direct delegations. Not the Steem based lease delegations. Feel free to talk to @scrooger to get more details on this =)

Hey @qurator,

Nice! ... This can come in handy.

Going Places (Red) 450 x 100px.png

This seems to be a very nice idea... just one little problem for me: on the one hand you say before registration it might be good to ask @scrooger or @gingerninja on Discord to review the blog so that they can tell if there is a chance to become a member on the other hand you say Discord link will be sent after registration... what steps now to do ? I would be interested in becoming a member but Ia m not too sure if there is achance for me with my blog ...


Hi @honolulu,
For this part:

before registration it might be good to ask @scrooger or @gingerninja on Discord to review the blog so that they can tell if there is a chance to become a member

This will be your first step.

I checked your blog and I found that you are helping minnows, which I think is a nice thing to do.
However, to increase your chances of acceptance and to be featured in The Daily Qurator, my advice is to add other contents that are relevant to steemit.
Because if your contents are always the same, your chances of being featured will minimize drastically.

For the other part:

Discord link will be sent after registration

This is the second step. This link is specific for @qurator members only, so you can join the room after you register.

Hope this helps :)

I am glad that I joined,already upvoted and following you now

realy realy realy amazing

Thanks a lot!

Are you really sure?
I mean REALLY now!
It can't really be that Really Amazing can it???

it is pretty good though... might be even really good... well if I really ponder on the issue it gets raised to the amazing level and then giving it some more thought (getting a real headache) i have to admit its really amazing but I cannot see the other 2 really's. they are indeed over the top

Hello I am new here...
How can I resteem your info in my blog?
How can I join this (your) ideia?

Hi @qurator! Please check my account if I am qualified to be a member. I'd love to be part of your team. Thank you.
