Post To Review



Here follows the post for you to review:

Challenge #37 Post - "Japanese Steemit Comment Challenge", by @yasu24.

The post this week is from @yasu24 and his initiative to spread this challenge to the #japanese community. I was very excited to hear about it and decided to sponsor it weekly with 200SP.

As mentioned above, this is a special edition. As the featured post is written in Japanese, I don't expect you to understand and comment directly related to that post.

Instead, please make your comment more generic. Here are some questions for you to consider. What do you think about a Japanese version? Do you have any ideas on how to bring this to other communities? What are the things you like or dislike about this challenge and how would you improve it?

As always, the idea is to write a comment that attracts the attention of the author. Your goal is to get the author to want to click your name and check out your blog.

Please feel free to pass by the Japanese version but don't feel obliged to drop a comment. That is their contest post and I don't want to cause unnecessary spam. 😉



Please donate, please help a minnow

If you like this idea and would like it to grow. Please feel free to donate and I will add it to the Prize Pool. Mention #steemitcommentchallenge in your memo.

Well, I was only able to read that post and was able to understand just some lines which tells, "everyone" and such stuff. But most of the time, it's a really good thing to read a post from a foreign language especially if you're learning it. By that, you become able to read that language and to understand little by little. I would really like to read post written in Japanese in the near future because I will be able to understand Japanese real soon. I think that posts written in Japanese will also help Japanese people to easily understand what the post says.

Talking about this project, it's a great support for minnows like us to find success. Especially the newbies get to know how to make a good comment. I would like to give my support by resteeming this post

You are right about the importance of comments. It is for sure the best way to promote yourself on the platform.

This one was really fun. Here is what I wrote.

I Absolutely Love This. I Have A Translator App I Use It Regularly On Steemit, And Have Had The Opportunity To Explore Other Cultures In A Much More In Depth Manner.
I Was Surprised To Find Many Also Use This And Can Read My Comments. So That We Can Converse But Sometimes The Translation Can Be Comical.
I Am Glad I Found The Post. I Am Going To Take Advantage Of The Opportunity To Come Back And Find Some Japanese Blogs To Read.

Thank you headchange

Thanks for the confirmation. and for doing another contest. These are really fun. 😊

I think the Japanese version of the contest is really a great idea and I don't think anyone would rebuff it. It is also a turning point that could pave way to the introduction of other versions - like Spanish, Chinese, etc - which would ultimately expand the horizon of this "comment challenge" to other channels and give room for those who don't understand (speak/write) English to contest.
More so, the Japanese will be able to communicate in their dialect with ease, knowing fully well that that's the language they are more familiar with.

I think I have some ideas on how to bring this contest to other communities. Firstly, is to approach those who are from non-English speaking countries and/or those who are familiar with other languages like French, Spanish and Chinese. Then inform or tell them about the contest and the benefits they will derive. We could start from two countries then, gradually, others could be incorporated. With time, this contest would go global and help dozens of people and even more donors would surface.

What I love about this challenge is that it has been a means of helping and supporting newbies to grow in this community. The challenge has also helped people develop the ability to comment thoughtfully and genuinely while still making new friends in the process.
However, one thing I dislike about the challenge is that only two people will benefit from the challenge. I think provision should be made for third position if not more.

·

Congratulations on winning the 1st Prize this week! :)

·
·

Wow! Wow! This is amazing! Thank you so much for choosing me as the winner of the first price. Am very grateful.

I will do my best to use it wisely and give back to the community.

·

Thank you for positive comments. I think that there is a possibility that it will spread in communities that use other languages.

·
·

Yes, the posibility is high. Through communication the good news would be spread to all the communities and around the world.

·
·
·

Yes. I think so too.

·

Confirmed!
Thanks for the nice words and your suggestions. It would be great to see if someone else takes the initiative and spreads this to other communities.

·
·

Certainly, it would be great because it would help to change the life of so many people especially those who are on the verge giving up.

I believe no one would love to snub such initiative. We are all here to help each other grow. So through this means he/she would help his people profusely.

I donated 1 Steem dollars for the contest. Thank you. It may be sent further in the future.

And I resteemed this article.

·

Thanks for your generousity. No matter how small or big it is, it is worth it.

·
·

Thank you. I am pleased to say so.

·

Great, that’s awesome!
I will add it to the next round and announce it properly.
本当にありがとう😊

You are welcome! こちらこそ、本当にありがとうございます。

It is very interesting to read the reflections of representatives of other cultures, learn their interests, aspirations. This applies to every culture.

In his native language, a person will always be able to expand the topic of his message more widely.

This destroys many walls that arise from the fact that it is not always possible to find suitable words that will reveal the idea in all its glory, in a foreign language.

Japanese culture is very interesting for me. I never ate sushi, yes, it's true. But, wasabi sauce, I really like it. I eat it with meat.

I like cooking fish myself. You did not try my smoked and salted fish!

I love Japanese proverbs and sayings, they have a lot of wisdom. When I'm ready to go to war, I remember the saying, if you sit for a long time on the bank of the river, you can see the corpse of your enemy floating past you, along the river. I immediately calmed down and gain patience. It gives me strength.

My mother, was born near the coast of Japan. In the city of Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky. My grandmother, grandfather and mother, talked a lot about the familiar Japanese who lived side by side.

Ekibana, this is what forced you to hold up your eyes for a long time. This art I saw for the first time in the 80s. I was a child then. But, already then I admired the skill of the Japanese florist.

I was engaged in aquaristics and my standard in the design of aquariums was, and there is Amano Takashi. His work can be watched for hours. It's hard to repeat, but, I tried to do it.

As you can see, Japanese culture closely intertwined in my life. I will gladly visit this branch.

·

Thank you for complimenting Japan. I also like sushi.

·
·

Thank you @yasu24 ! I do not know the taste of sushi. I represent their taste, but, nothing more. Well, now have to take lessons on cooking sushi)))

·
·
·

Oh. I want you to have the opportunity to eat sushi.

·
·
·
·

Many thanks @yasu24 ! A booklet with a menu of sushi, already on my table))
A question. Norwegian salmon, from which we cook many kinds of sushi, are bred on fish farms. I know what is it. Fish from birth is bathed in products of vital activity. I'm wondering, in Japan, such a fish is used for cooking, or use only fish caught in rivers and oceans?

·
·
·
·
·

Thank you. A question about Japan, I'm happy. Both are used.

·

Confirmed!
Thanks for your comment. I would really recommend you to try Sushi, there are many lovely things to try. And you know Sushi doesn’t need to be raw fish?

·
·

Thank you @danielsaori ! You're right. Our country is very far from sources of fresh fish, which can be used in sushi. I do not have fastidiousness when I myself catch in the sea of shrimp and pick mussels, I can eat them in raw form. But, this is not the main reason. I have not tried these sushi and do not want to spoil the first impression. Those sushi that we sell, I very much doubt that they have much in common with traditional sushi. As an option, learn to make yourself a sushi)) Then there is a second problem. It's hard to find eels, I can smack him)))

Hey, @danielsaori.

I mainly want to say that these kinds of challenges, where anyone of any language is encouraged to engage, will be the means by which STEEM as a social media platform thrives. In reality, we should be engaging for our own best interests, as well as the long term health of the platform, but provide a contest with some prize money and people tend to come to it.

Because English is the predominant language here, other language speakers feel compelled to interact as much as they can, and while that's fine, and perhaps even helpful for those trying to improve their English language abilities, it can also be restricting and counterproductive. Knowing that there are similar contests in their own language that people can support may go towards building areas of STEEM in those languages so there's no longer the need to go into English as much. I think it's good to learn another language, especially English, but it's also a benefit to build up languages to help support those where learning English will be difficult.

It seems to me that among the different languages there are bound to be those who are already leading in some capacity that would be interested in sponsoring or helping in producing contests in those languages. Someone will need to head these up. The natural leaders are a good place to start.

·

Congratulations on taking home the 2nd prize this week.
I wish you a nice weekend.

·
·

Thank you again. I do appreciate what you're doing here. I will do what I can to use the delegation well. :)

·

Congratulations dear friend for grabbing the second price. Your suggestions were great!

·
·

hey, @maxijgcomm.

Well, I'm not sure about my suggestions—they seemed rather obvious to do. I have to agree with you that adding more placings if possible would be great. It looks like potentially more donations are in order then, which means more people need to know about this particular contest. More prize money seems to work pretty well for abh12345's engagement leagues, so hopefully it can be incorporated here, too.

·
·
·

You are absolutely right. The incorporation would be nice.

·

Confirmed!
That's a great reflection Glen.
I see many people joining this and other contests even though their English is not up to par. I have no problem with that myself, instead, I find it interesting. Sometimes the passion can overcome any language deficiencies and that is something beautiful to witness. :)
But for the growth of STEEM, I think it will probably do more good if people have an option to compete in their own native language. It will help showcase that language on the platform.

Ganbatte!
I was not aware of this contest (in English) before today, but now I am!
I like that you have an initiative promoting using comments and visiting/upvoting newbies at the same time. Great behaviors to get people established on Steemit. I am curious why Japanese is the second language to pick this up? Do you two already know each other?

·

Confirmed!
It's awesome you found out about this contest. Great to have you here!
We met in the Japanese community and Yasu was interested to try this contest out in Japanese.

My Dad do tell me something before he died he said my son, never be afraid to do something new even if the world will criticize you for it,just do it and do it well.

Having this contest in another language is a welcome idea considering the fact it fooster more unionson and gives the japanese too a greater sense of belonging on the platform. In another way its promoting their culture and adding more value to the steemit platform.

Do you Know I aint dissapointed with the first edition, the theme of discussion is so great that I want to get involved in it""What I'd like to do if I can live with Steemit's rewards only". I guess I can be able to promote my culture then, and barnish poverty among my kindred and give the teen a worthwhile life experience.

One thing I will just like to correct is the the English edition was never limited to the English community, so neither should the Japanese edition be limited to the Japanese, for more popular participation.Just my thought thou. Thanks so much @danielsaori and @yasu24

·

Confirmed!
I'm not sure when your father past away, but I'm sorry to hear that.
The thing your dad told you is a lesson of a lifetime, something we all should live by.

For both this and the Japanese edition there is nothing preventing anyone from participating, it is only a rule to follow a specific language. And that is predominately a practical matter as it is difficult to accommodate such a contest without a certain level of fluency.

"For both this and the Japanese edition there is nothing preventing anyone from participating, it is only a rule to follow a specific language.

Thank you for your comment.

Such an awesome one Daniel!! Here's the comment I left on @yasu24's post:

I love how @danielsaori's Challenge has encouraged thoughtful and genuine commenting and I'm equally pleased to see it has reached the Japanese community as well @yasu24. Just imagine how engaged this entire platform could be if every different language community adopted this challenge?!! Perhaps a good place to start would be to share this link or the English version with other language specific Discord channels.

Congratulations and thank you for seeing value in a challenge such as this :)

·

Confirmed!
You always bring some lovely ideas Lynn! :) I don't think I will have the time at the moment trying to push this to other communities, but it would be awesome if someone did.

·
·

Thank you Daniel! And is that a hint? haha

·
·
·

It was an open invite 😜

·
·
·
·
·

Thank you. I am pleased to say so.

·
·

You are most welcome @yasu24 :)

😌😌😌
Ahmmnn...well, Mr Daniel can we just continue the English version?
Japanese is just too complicated,possibly to me alone🤥,but I could read nothing on that post😥😥😥,honestly!!

·

Hey, please have a look at the instructions under “Post to review”. You are not meant to understand and comment directly related to that post. I’m not that cruel. 😜 Read again above and let me know if it’s clear.

@danielsaori what I understand from your post that this contest is really great idea and real fun. it requires creative idea to start with such contest. something what is expected on steemit, unfortunately its not followed and give and take thing is more famous on steemit. With above contest people will bring forward their creative ideas atleast for once. I visited Japanese version contest of @yasu24 here is what I have written there in comments
"@yasu24 firstly I don't understand Japanese language but what prompted me to come by this post is because I have worked with Japanese community and Mr @danielsaori impressed me a lot about this challenge. but it would be great if you converted above post in English version as well using Japanese diary which is very famous in japan. it would attract many other communities to participate. anyways best of luck to your contest. I wish for a great progress. Thanx"

·

Thank you for your comment.

·

Confirmed!
For sure it requires way more creativity to produce a nice post, while commenting, most of the time is about creating some short and catchy. Like writing an ad promoting yourself.
Commenting can also be quite profitable without the stress and hard work. Getting a $0.1 return on a post can be pretty demotivating while earning that on a comment will feel like a pat on the back.

I'm planning to release a post talking about the difference in earning potentials between posts and comments, and present some stats along with it. Here is an example

21 posts with a total earning of: $10.47
114 comments with a total earning of: $1.45
Percentage post earnings: 87.83%
Percentage comment earnings: 12.17%

@danielsaori after reading your reply with example, I set up my mind for atleast 10-15 replies everyday. Its amazing. Now I understand its so much more easy to grow than what I think. at the same time I realise my comment above is not upto mark as per you since u didn't vote 0.1$ which u mentioned in reply. So I need to improve myself atleast 5 times better to reach that point. Work on boss. I will start writing comments righaway. and I mean meaningful comments. Thanx for guidance.

Am loving all these challenges @danielsaori you putting forward and here is my tiny entry.

A Japanese content, and further pushed into being a challenge shouts it big that indeed steemit has enabled positive networking around the globe spearheaded by its current users. See, I believe growth is everything and having the right people around you propels your movement upwards, which is the aim of each and every person, to grow.

With that in mind, am left with no reason to hate this challenge on the grounds that more ties are made, without being hindered by the geographical boundaries. Growth.

Thank you Murathe.

Thanks @danielsaori. Hello and good day from here. I am @steemils and here to solicit for your help to support my curating career here on steemit.

Here is a little about myself and my vision
Steemils is the minnow's account created to end minnow's suffering on the platform,breaking the boundary that limits there articles from being upvoted and sanitizing the steemit community of plagiarized post and articles.

So many newbie are always seen joining the community which would have been a great news, People on the platform have been found not to find it easy in explaining the ethics of article writing to the new people they introuduce. As times go on, this set of minnows are seen posting plagiarized content and wandering around on the blockhain. @Steemils will engage in writing articles that help minnow's grow and help them get more visibilities by resteeming of articles and linking them to whales who are always ready to curate meaningful article.

@steemils will help eradicate 0.00$ on original articles by upvoting with is curation power and through its curation trail being put in place. @steemils will help introuduce the minnows to the tags sections, its use and how to use them, How to find a meaningful and attracting topic for their article. Note! @steemils is not here to create another community as most minnow help account does. But @steemils will introuduce the minnows to the already existing communities ,tutor them about why they should be there and monitor their growth and make them relevant in this communities.

Here is the link to my introductory post . https://steemit.com/introduceyourself/@steemils/here-to-engaging-minnows-actively-and-originally-introducing-steemils

I will be glad to recieve help from in form of delegation of Sp to boost my curation activities and make the minnow you so care about smile.

Thanks so much, hoping to recieve a response from you!

Sounds like a nice initiative. I will keep an 👁 on it to see how you get along before I make a decision. Please do your best! 👍

·
·

Thanks so much. Will keep doing my best.

@yasu24 I carefully read that post with help from Google Translator. because I did not know that language.We should learn the Japanese language because when we say we burn as if we go to Zuban, then all people speak Japanese, then they can not understand our language well, so we should learn something or something.I will try it in the future.
If we talk about the project then this platform is a good.I want others always have good post and should work on it.

Japanese version is quite difficult to understand and type comments, but Google can translate it to your language, and you can comment on it...
Is this comment is ok for the participation ?
Thank you

·

Confirmed!
That’s the whole reason I wrote to not care about the content of the Japanese version. Would be quite difficult. 😉

Wow......idiosyncratic idea...and chance to get the reward, just read the post and give your genuine opinion and if have any query just ask....thank you.
