Steemit Update [ August 10th, 2022 ] : Steemit Engagement Challenge - Applications Invited for Season 4
We hope you have all been enjoying Season 3 of the Steemit Engagement Challenge which is coming to an end this week.
Season 4 of the Challenge will be starting towards the end of August.
Applications are now invited from communities for the new season.
For this fourth round we are again looking for six Communities who would like to take part alongside the Steemit Crypto Academy.
How Communities can Apply
For Season 4 of the Engagement Challenge we are looking for six Communities to take part.
The Communities should be well established, with a good, active team of Admins and Mods, and an actively growing community curation account.
We are looking for Communities who already check and comment on every post in their community. Particularly those that check for plagiarism, bot-use, steem-exclusivity, club status etc.
All the Admins and Mods should be following at least #club5050.
The Communities can be country communities, subject specific communities or general communities.
Communities chosen for the Challenge will be expected to run weekly contests through their community account, and also be willing to check and comment on every post in their community.
To apply to join the Challenge, the Community Founder, Admin or Lead Moderator should make an application post including…
- the purpose of their community
- a brief history of their community
- a list of all Founders, Administrators and Moderators including their #club status
- details of their community curation account, how it is being built up and who holds the keys
- details of the community’s current policy for checking and commenting on posts
- details of how the community helps members improve the quality of their posts
- reasons why their community should be selected for the Challenge.
The post should also contain the contact details (Telegram/Discord) of at least two lead people in the community team.
Posts should be submitted by 11.59pm UTC, on Sunday, August 21st, 2022.
The application posts should include the tag #engagementapplication in the first four tags.
The Communities selected for previous seasons are welcome to apply again for Season 4.
We really hope we get more eligible communities to select from for Season 4.
Please make sure you pay close attention to the ‘Improving Communities’ section in this post…
This will greatly increase the chance of your community being selected for the Engagement Challenge.
Season 4 - Checking & Grading Posts
The Communities selected for Season 4 should ensure they promptly check and comment on all posts for their weekly contests.
The minimum they should check for are #club status, Steem exclusivity, plagiarism and bot use.
Communities are free to design their own comment formats but it is ideal if all Mods in a particular community use a common, standard format.
Remember though - votes are not guaranteed.
Season 4 - Community Beneficiaries
Please note that the selected communities should not make setting a beneficiary to any related community account obligatory for anyone to enter the Challenge contests.
Season 4 - Selection of Challenge Winners
Each week we would like all 7 Challenge communities to make a post on their community account announcing the three people who have demonstrated the most engagement in their weekly contest both through the quality of their contest post and the quantity and quality of their comments on other people’s contest posts.
Then at the end of Season 4 we would like the Communities to make a post on their community account announcing their three overall winners for the whole season. This should not be a list of the winners of each week, but three people selected for their overall performance across all four contests.
We will leave it to each community to decide how they select their weekly and season winners, but they should include in their announcement posts a brief summary of their selection process.
All the weekly winners and overall Season 4 winners, as well as the community announcement posts, will receive extra prize votes from @steemcurator01.
We are looking forward to reading all your applications.
This is an exciting new Challenge to help build engagement on the platform.
We hope as many people as possible will take part.
