Steemit Update [Sep 20th, 2022] : Steemit Engagement Challenge - Applications Invited for Season 5

in #steem2 years ago (edited)

We hope you have all been enjoying Season 4 of the Steemit Engagement Challenge which is coming to an end this week.

Season 5 of the Challenge will be starting in early October.

Applications are now invited from communities for the new season.

For this fifth 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 5 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.

The selected communities will receive increased voting from @steemcurator01 and @steemcurator02, and weekly Challenge winners will receive extra prize votes from @steemcurator01.

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 11:59 pm UTC, on Sunday, October 2nd, 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 5.

We really hope we get more eligible communities to select from for Season 5.

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 5 - Checking & Grading Posts

The Communities selected for Season 5 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.

To help @steemcurator01 and @steemcurato02 to curate the contest posts more effectively we have been looking for community Mods to use a clear, simple, and easy-to-read comment format.

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 5 - 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 5 - 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.

We will leave it to each community to decide how they select their weekly winners, but they should include in their announcement posts a brief summary of their selection process.

All the weekly 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.

Thank you

I really hope @steemcurator01 makes new rules, namely if @steemcurator01 doesn't vote for contestant posts that are not informative, educative, and of good quality. A lot of trash content on steemit is not of good quality and continues to be sustainable, while good content escapes @steemcurator01.
To campaign for Steemit is actually very easy. If they are looking for something on the internet and there is a steemit blog about it, there is no need to bother looking for people to write on Steemit. Take a look at the medium. Every post there is informative, of high quality, has many topics, and is clearly useful. So don't give your vote to junk posts. So, with such regulations, steemit will be reborn where people gather looking for information as well as social discussion. The contents of your posts are trash. You're just looking for a face and praising trash posts without criticizing them.

Do please give examples of good quality posts that you think deserve more reward.

And remember you are very welcome to build up your Steem Power to give good rewards to all the good posts that you think we are missing...

there are so many topics that can be raised to become good, informative and educational content. I take the example of my own blog, I provide an explanation of technical market analysis in detail in two languages, Indonesian and English. and my post contains education about how to see the market. Apart from that, there are many topics that can be raised, and I suggest that you should be selective on your part so that you don't just vote, for monotonous writing, such as a diary game, which is very, very uninformative and has no quality at all. Give your voice to content that does have quality, if you miss it, tell every moderator of postings that are monotonous and uninformative and also not of high quality, don't give excessive votes, it will make them content creators who are serious about providing benefits with their writing. quality and informative, instead they will leave and steemit is filled by those who have no quality in writing. you can consider my input.

Examples of posts that meet your criteria can check my post

this is an article from the past and the user has left this platform because the article he wrote didn't get any appreciation at all. and many quality article writers also leave the platform because they are not rewarded for their best work, and tend to prioritize inappropriate posts for the votes they deserve.

Why do you think your post is of high quality and other peoples post are not? The truth is that everyone who post in this platform considers his or her article as an article with high quality but we don't get to judge our article. Just as you have illustrated, moderators grade based on what they think the article deserve. In the same way, curators vote based on the fact that they have found the article worthy enough. Instead of calling other peoples article low quality article, try to improve on your own article and build your own audience. Once you post quality article on the platform and people find it attractive enough, you will also get support from both the big and small curators because the platform is always ready to welcome good content. #steem-on

why do I say my post is of high quality, it's natural, it's very natural to look for an account that specifically discusses content that is useful and informative and useful for others. Very little there can only be counted on the fingers. while the posts that I mean are very domineering, so that there are no creative ideas that can be written, because they don't want to look for other topics, afraid that @steemcurator01 won't vote so good content doesn't exist. why do I give my example, because content like mine can only be found on paid channels, I write for insight and also information, if there are users from this platform who want to find technical analysis so easy. what are you writing? it's the same as the majority of accounts, don't look for safety bro, by not trying to grow and think logically. here is not just my content, there is still a lot of content from friends that is reasonable and very deserving of curation than your blog posts, which you think is of very high quality.

Just like I have said above, you don't get to judges if your content is of high quality or not. The people reading through your content are those to judge. So i will advice you to allow the content readers to be the judge of your post my friend. #steem-on

I can judge my post is of quality or not, I research and I don't just write, and write everyday things that are not useful and become useful discussions as an article. Come on, friends, admit it, content that is topic-specific, has good quality, and is informative and also educative to readers rarely gets votes from the curators, it's only you who post that and it's boring, there's no interest in people reading continuously. good night and greetings jastok

The platform works based on POB hence we also vote based on what we feel the content of the article add to us. If you are not satisfy with this fact, build your own SP and support article that you feel are of good quality. No body stops you from doing that my friend. You write on technical analysis which is good but don't condemn what others are good at as well.

Do you know, before anyone can build to a meaningful length, he or she needs support first from those who have built around him/her.

How can I build if I don't have the materials for it?

Leadership never an easy thing to do, as people tend to see it.. @steemcurator01 can not see and do everything. That's is why we have community leaders and curators to do that. I would agree most of the quality contents gets swept under the carpet, but it is not always the fault of @steemcurator01. It is also on us the various users who are opportune to help out in the various communities. I come in peace..

This isn't exactly the fault of the steemit team. Most of these community curators and leaders doesn't really know the meaning of quality content.

They usually judge based on originality and length. In as much as originality is very important, sometimes originality doesn't necessarily mean quality.

How will you be selecting a post where an author talks about his visit to a firm, boutique, supermarket or shop as quality? Only because it contains original pictures?

What benefit is the content to readers?
What information/knowledge is it passing?

Who gives a f**k on how much you bought a pair of sandals and the Steem equivalent of the local currency?

What benefit is your supermarket review to other readers? Who is ever going to come there to buy stuff?

Yet, this type of contents are usually regarded as high quality and are often being given more attention by community leaders and curators especially when it is made by users with high reputation.

This is why you will hardly see steemit as a reference when you are looking for information on Google because most of the information people look up on Google aren't the type of contents steemit give attention to.

Previously, steemit was not filled with boring monotonous content, such as diary games, steemit engagement, poor quality contests, how do people want to use this platform. While the content will not attract outsiders to visit if there is no benefit at all, even their posts are very very It's really lame, but they hide it, including your own posts.

even posts made by high reputations mostly trash all of its contents, look at 1 month their timeline is boring and boring with their game diary, and always gets a vote from @steemcurator01 I actually want to laugh with this, later it will be a field for making money without good quality content, even originality is not enough, my friend. And newcomers want to join here, they don't have any content ideas. because it is always filled by the games diary all the time. so steemit there won't be a lot of content discussed just a game diary, try to think critically and logically.

You have your right to vent your anger, and trust me it is worth crying about as it is never easy making out time to create content from our busy life schedule in the hope of getting something tangible, but then, you end up with nothing, while there are others with little or even no effort at all get the large support maybe due to familiarity etc.

But don't forget, SteemIt is a social media platform, not a personal blog. If everyone is being supported for their efforts, I think people wouldn't be this salty about it..

We all create content to the best of our abilities and it hurts if we don't get the needed support. But don't forget that steemit is a social media platform open to anyone and any content.

I'm just venting what most people can be creative and don't think instantly and because they follow the game diary, they will get a bigger vote. it's the same as their goal to make money I know this is not a blog, but social blogging. You know social blogging isn't just about your stupid, uncreative diary.

We are on same boat.. My only stance is that its never easy for the likes of @steemcurator01 and @steemcurator02 to fish out all quality content. That's the reason we have community leaders and curators to help bring this content to them.

I feel your frustration too as when you see hefty votes on people's work, sometimes with grammatical blunders, but I have come to accept that I won't always be lucky enough, in my lucky day, I smile too.

And I must commend the even the various community curators, it is never easy for anyone. And I guess everyone has their own definition of quality.

your base is just a licker. you do not provide any corrections so that steemit develops. and I see the contents of your blog, sorry I have to say it is not worth reading.

I'm not frustrated, I'm voicing something that has been missing from this platform, if you look at this platform 4-5 years ago you can clearly see the difference from now. seldom perfunctory content.

or are you afraid, if there is a new rule, you will not be able to write again because you are not competent to write about something useful and of good quality. I laughed with that attack from you.

I never did attack you. But if you see it that way, it is a mistake on my part. Sorry about that.. Thank you for the compliments. Who am I to attack you?

Please do a rug pull and reveal some examples of the quality content that is being swept under it...

In your definition, what is quality post?
If an Exam is given and a student follows all the instructions and then deliver answers based on questions asked, with correct grammar. Can we say the student did a justice to himself by giving quality?

At the end, the teacher is the one who still determines his marking scheme. Not the student..

But as long as one concern, following the rules and regulations of the various contest set and graded by the moderators. It is deemed a quality post by the Moderators.

I have seen cases where someone got 9.5/10 rating and had nothing whereas those with 8 and 7.5 gets something.. Why?

From my little experience, I think we should try to avoid putting blames always, instead we should always try to do the best we can and create a standard for ourselves. In as much as they are low quality post, there are also very high quality post that receives support.

To me the steemit team is trying their best to be the best someday and I believe we will achieve this in no distance time

I made observations based on the results from the field, I don't blame anyone. but if this is wrong, I think I should disclose it to your side so that you can better see the problems faced by this platform.

I am ready to participate in the next contest.
