What content to publish on STEMGeeks using the STEM tag?

in #stem8 months ago (edited)

STEMGeeks is a community about Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math commonly referred to as STEM.

STEM contains a very wide scope of topics that are a great fit for the STEMGeeks community. Some of these topics include:

  • Science
  • Space Exploration
  • Gadgets
  • Technology Innovations
  • Blockchain Technology
  • Programming & Development
  • Mathematics
  • Artificial Intelligence
  • Machine Learning
  • Maker (i.e. Raspberry Pi & Arduino)
  • 3D Printing
  • Mobile Phone Technology
  • Medical Advances
  • Robotics
  • Computing

I find it is very common that the S (Science) in STEM is the primary focus. I myself tend to focus on the T (Technology) but enjoy the others as well. The purpose of this community is feature topics from all four fields of STEM. More importantly, from professionals and amateurs alike.

Build a new PC? Take pictures, explain how you did it. This is fantastic content for STEMGeeks.

Want to talk about making Apps for the new iPhone? Have at it!

STEM reaches a very wide audience and topics, don't forget to use the STEM tag when it fits.

The main idea of STEMGeeks is to provide technology & science-focused community with a niche wide enough you could live here but not wide enough to see $100 cat photos.

What doesn't fit in STEMGeeks

  • Technical Analysis
  • Price Analysis
  • Crypto
  • Steem Development
  • Copy Paste content regardless of the topic
  • Stolen content regardless of the topic
  • Single image posts of any topic
  • STEMGeeks & STEM Token
  • Harassment and toxicity

A few of these need a little more explaining.

While Technical analysis and price analysis involve math, it really isn't about math. These topics are better suited for other communities like @steem.leo.

While crypto is technology, talking about tokens it is not. If you want to post about new technology in the crypto field and uses of crypto technology, awesome!. If you just want to talk about Bitcoin and Ethereum and other token focused discussions, there are better-suited communities for that.

Steem development certainly does fit in STEM and it's not something I don't want to completely discourage, but we do want to keep it to a minimum. The reason behind this is Steem Development is not mainstream, and is more focused on the Steem community and better served by @utopian-io. I am not going to ask anyone not to post about their Steem development, just please focus more on the development and technology aspects and less about code changes for Steem. Check out @utopian-io if you want to be rewarded for your awesome Steem related content.

Copy/Paste and plagiarism has no place in STEMGeeks. This includes just dropping a link to a YouTube video regardless if it is about STEM content. Repeated attempts at doing this will result in the removal of STEM rewards and potentially being muted from the community. Be original, don't steal other people's work regardless if it is public domain or not.

While STEMGeeks is obviously related, it really isn't about STEM and more about the community. I am not opposed to some talk about STEMGeeks but please don't post exclusively about STEMGeeks using the STEM tag. We want to talk about STEM topics and not just about the community. This means posts that say "Hey I powered up STEM" or "STEM token on the market" are not good topics for this community. There is no avoiding the discussion of the token and the community, but we just don't want 100 posts a day about it just to have a reason to use the STEM tag.

Please be civil with each other, banter is fine but this is a community about sharing people's passions and not kicking and screaming.

Tags that are not allowed on STEMGeeks

We are currently filtering any posts from the following tags:

  • actifit
  • dlike
  • share2steem
  • steemhunt

99% of the time the use of these dApps do not fit in the spirt of the STEMGeeks. Rather than repeatedly explaining to people this is not STEM-related, I have decided to mute the tags from showing up in the community and being eligible for STEM token distribution.

Sort:  

This looks to be a very cool community. Will be reading and commenting my posts don't fit the criteria but should be a great resource for of us that are less "techie" than the author of your hash tagged posts. Best of luck, welcome to the arena, cheers!

I'm ready to provide some hardcore engineering material. Thanks for this new tribe!

Great project you got here, you can probably "steal" some of the hackernoon's user base with this if done right. I'm definitely going to be a future content creator/curator for this tribe. The only thing that might be hard is the no crypto talk... what if I'm writing about doing smart contracts on ethereum, can I mention ethereum and solidity? Or it doesn't fit STEM? Because it's programming, but it's programming specifically on ethereum...

BTW, is there any post where I can see the mechanisms you intend to implement to make the token's value appreciate? Like ad revenue, BAT, burning, token use-cases,etc...?

what if I'm writing about doing smart contracts on ethereum, can I mention ethereum and solidity?

I would say if you are discussing the process, educating the how-to, and/or offering your technical opinions about it, then it's cool.

The thing we don't want people to do is wind up talking about the prices, internal drama, etc.

Oh ok, so it's more or less like I thought, thanks for the reply!

Greetings @stemgeeks

Interesting the initiative, I'm from the area of ​​industrial engineering, I'm interested in the content of science, technology, engineering and mathematics, so I found the right place to consume content.

I'm from Venezuela, I do not handle English very well, I publish in Spanish and I support with the translator; But we are in Steemit, so we must force ourselves out of the comfort zone and evolve.

I follow the initiative @stemgeeks, and we'll see how far the wave takes us!

Great job on keeping out stuff that doesn't belong and defining it well. I'm really glad that STEM community won't accept junk masquerading as STEM.

Interestingly, in Korea it's called STEAM and the A stands for 'art'. Let's just say the other letters were not pleased.

Yes x 100! Finally #stem seems to care about their community. Many others are filled with irrelevant junk. I like all stem topics and will collect your tokens after this.

By the way is your $100 cat post directed at me? I've done that before... Should have tagged science because cats are biological organisms😸

@stemgeeks @themarkymark I'm an architecture student, my question is the following, what kind of science, technology and innovation topics can we share, since for example in Architecture there are many topics on Materials Technology and new structural technology, these topics are accepted? For example, if I come and talk about the launch or operation of a platform, is that accepted? I love the marine world, can I talk about the marine world? About the different artistic manifestations and the use of technologies in obtaining new materials to create works of art? Want a little more information! I would love to make my contributions with my creative content. Thank you!

Just focus more on the tech and engineering aspect of it and you’ll be fine.

Wao!, I will be using this platform a lot. Also I have I lot of friends that loves science, technology and math. I will tell everybody. Now, I have a question: I have a friend (@neladepablos) who is a math teacher and she used to post educative videos on dtube but she speaks spanish, does she have to use the tag "math", "matematica" (wtitten in spanish) or both? (because if she uses "math" maybe she will not reach the hispanic people, that is her target)

Thank you so much @emiliomorles :).

Clearly, by the post's own admission, this post does not belong in STEMGeeks. :P It clearly has more to do with rules than the technology of STEMGeeks.

Hey I used "stem" tag, but the article is not showing in my stemgeek profile.

We do not publish dlike, actifit, share2steem, steemhunt posts.

You can read more here

Got it thank you. I have visited the post earlier today but didn't read it completely.

Because of STEMGeeks I have a renewed interest to start learning JavaScript. Would this be a suitable topic for STEM community? I feel like it would but I wanted to double-check just to avoid any confusion and abuse.

Posted using Partiko Android

Sure is.

Is PC Software in general allowed? Like introducing a software of showing a tutorial about the software?

Posted using Partiko Android

Tutorial and stuff will definitely do.

Thanks! Good to know...

Oh cool. Is this different than SteemSTEM or are you collaborating with them as well?

Posted using Partiko Android

It is different than SteemSTEM, I gave them a special airdrop but we are not affiliated.

Ok then. 👍

I hope the fake pseudoscientists are hammered out hard. I can't stand those people.

I didn't notice dlike wasn't approved tag. Will keep that in mind in future. Wish there was an automatic warning prior to the downvoting. Anyways, wishing you success and peace!

It should be blocked but because dlike changed from using tags to using the category field it is showing them again. It is being fixed by the Steem Engine team.

The flag is just to hide them, the account has no steem power and the flag is only 1% so it won’t take any Steem rewards. It does not necessarily mean the post is a bad post, only that it doesn’t fit in STEMGeeks.

I was bummed about the downvote. It's ok... Should have checked the norm in your community first.

Posted using Partiko Android

Don’t let it bother you. The flag is insignificant and just moderating the community. The dlike posts should be muted soon and they won’t show up anymore.

Sounds good. Hoping to contribute to the Stem community in future.

Dear STEM Geek! I am writing this comment to inform you that the leader of our tribe, @themarkymark, has unfairly banned me from the discord server of our tribe. Show him we are a decentralized community and that such acts of tyranny will not be accepted in the STEM tribe! Tell him to let me in again!

Thank you!

Thank you for the clarification. I missed them.
