@cn-reader has been launched for a while, our initial idea is to keep one post per day for the first two weeks and then make adjustment based on detail situation.
As I mentioned before, @cn-reader aims to spread excellent contents of cn community to others, meanwhile, @cn-reader will introduce some outstanding foreign contents to the cn community, and finally establish a comprehensive communication system which includes the excellent contents of Chinese, English and other languages.
Some steemians might think @cn-reader is just a new account in steemit. In fact it is not only an account, there's more information inside.
There are many contests including "Monthly Review" in community for now, some are just started and some are already finished, but "Monthly Review" is one of those contests which last for a long period and has widespread influence. From the "Chinese Valentine's Day Contest" to today's "Monthly Review”, my own feeling is that a great contest must be sustainable, and it also needs much contribution and efforts to achieve that goal, only one person's passion and effort is not enough, so at the very beginning, we set up judges group, judges will recommend good articles in each round of the contest. "Monthly Review" can’t achieve such success without the selfless contribution of the judges. Also, I think a good program can't be only supported by passion or interpersonal connections; we need both ideal and bread. Personal influence could be effective in short term, but in the long term, there must be a well-established system like reward system. Only a well-established system and good stimulate system can lead the program live longer and more lasting.
How can we be better motivated? This is the question that I am thinking all the time. What about donation? Well, donation will be effective in a short period, it will not be sustainable. And "Monthly Review" will be launched every month, we can’t ask for donation every time. It might be work for once, twice…, but people will be bored afterward, so I think donation will not be a good solution.
What about volunteer contribution? It seems reasonable since they are volunteers. Indeed, I did this at the beginning of "Monthly Review", reward authors with my own SBD or STEEM, and I still consider it is a good way now. It is one of my dreams to stimulate authors to create good works and attract more people join the community.
Volunteer contribution is not enough, even though you can do it; it is not practical for everybody do that for such a long time. And also, it is limited for each person's energy and time, I wrote an article several days ago, "Why I Delegate 3000 Sp to @cn-reader", I mentioned one thing there, I can read all the posts in cn community in less than an hour at the beginning, but what about now? The quantity of new posts per day is much more than ever before, of course there’s a lot improvement of the quality. It is a pleasant thing. In the past times, I read everybody’s post every night, vote and comment for good contents, I was happy and busy doing this for a long period.
但是单纯靠个人的付出我认为也是不够的，即便你一个人可以，但要让大家都长时间免费义务劳动，这也是不现实的，还有就是每个人的精力和时间都是有限的，昨天我写过一篇文章《我为什么代理3000 SP给@cn-reader ？》，其中有提到过一件事，就是社区刚开始时，我每天可以在不到一个小时内就看完当天中文社区所有的文章，而现在呢？每天新出的文章数量大大超过了从前，当然质量也比先前有了很大一个提升，这个是可喜可贺的。我先前每天晚上浏览大家的文章，看到好的文章都会点赞或评论，好长一段时间里，我因此忙忙碌碌并且也乐此不疲。
