SteemSTEM Distilled #46

in steemstem •  4 months ago

Welcome to the 46th issue of SteemSTEM Distilled, a curation effort by the members of the @steemstem team.

SteemSTEM is a community driven project which seeks to promote well-written and informative Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics posts on Steemit. The project involves curating STEM-related posts through upvoting, resteeming, offering constructive feedback, supporting scientific contests, and other related activities.

For more details, a recent update on the steemSTEM can be found here, and a not so recent one there. Moreover, if you ask yourself about what it means to be part of steemSTEM, please check here.


Our team scours the platform for original and quality content.

After working through thousands (literally!) of STEM-related posts and upvoting more than 150 that we deemed to be worthy, we proudly present you our top 8 handpicked choices for this Thursday-Sunday period.

A few words about the nomination process


For the sake of transparency we feel we need to clarify how our nomination process works; each issue is compiled by certain members of the SteemSTEM community. This week's editorial team was comprised of @ruth-girl.

The editorial team chooses their favorite posts for the week and each issue is the result of their joined effort. In order to keep the process fair, posts written by the editorial team are excluded from the nomination process.

Don't be discouraged if you didn't make it on this issue. The competition is harsh and there is always a next time :) In the meantime, you may wish to check these guidelines for extra tips on how your writing can be more effective.

The steemstem community feels a lot healthier since the "Taking a Break" and "Rebooting" post went out about 2 months ago.

People feel more engaged and posts seem to get more lively comment threads going.

There is still a long way to go but we are getting there.

If you ask me, I'd say there is no other community on steemit, that does as much as steemstem when it comes to encouraging good content and fostering healthy engagement among its members. I doff my hat for the management.

I would even say: the management and the entire team :)

·

You are aware that steemSTEM doesn't upvote posts that have used bidbots? And we don't upvote memes? And we check for plagiarism? And unvote posts that are later found to be stolen content?

Maybe you're not.

·
·

No. Do what you will, original content. Have a sense of humor, life is shit.. oops short.

Very diverse both multi-subject and multi-author selection. You guys rock. Congratulations to to the distilled!

It is also wonderful to see that so many people here appreciate the good work. Lets extend that love to the featured authors and share some thoughts! Look them up and add your own massive vote and giant comment!

·

Diversity is necessary to cover for as many interests as possible!

Well said @mirrors! This series of posts are meant to promote worthy authors, so always feel free to support posts you like, everyone! :)

J ai pas lu , trop long et chiant pour Moi

Mais j ai remarquer que steemit a fait des progrés pour que tous soit possible de translate en chaque langues , pour tous :)

Et cela est le meileur moyen pour le monde entier !!!

Vous écrivez dans votre langue , les autres langues arrive sur votre pages et tous ce traduit en leurs langue , oui c est le meilleur choix pour steemit

Car sinon beaucoup moins d interet !

Merci et salutation
