1000 DAYS OF STEEM : Day 13 - Let's Talk Tags & The Diary Game Season 2 Recruitment Points Update

in #the1000daysofsteem10 months ago


With The Diary Game and The Shopping Game we curate a lot of posts!

One of the main ways we try to find all the posts is through the tags.

Today we just wanted to take a few minutes to talk about how you can help us make the process more efficient.

What Tags To Use

Currently there are three active tags to use on posts if you would like us to find them...

  • #thediarygame - for any entries to The Diary Game after August 1st, and now for any general posts about the game

  • #theshoppinggame - for any entries to The Shopping Game until July 31st, and for any general posts about the game

  • #the1000daysofsteem - for any posts with suggestions, ideas, comments etc about The 1000 Days of Steem project.

Please make sure you use them as one of the first 5 tags - ideally the first.

We would greatly appreciate if you use these tags correctly to help us increase the number of posts we can read and curate.

Please also if you are posting for The Diary Game or The Shopping Game only use the relevant tag for that game - not both.

The #the100daysofsteem tag is now redundant and should no longer be used.

We would also encourage people when posting to The Diary Game or The Shopping Game to start using a tag to identify your country.

On a wider note we would suggest people review the tags they use of on their posts - we do see a lot of tags being used unnecessarily. Examples would be for the old Steem Engine tribes that are no longer operational.

Tag Spam

Tag spam is where people add popular tags to their posts just to attract attention from curators even though the post has nothing to do with the tag.

It is so far not too great a problem but it is definitely increasing for people to use #thediarygame or #theshoppinggame on their posts that have nothing to do with either game.

This means we have to check posts unnecessarily which takes time away from us checking and voting on valid posts.

If you spot any posts using the three current tags - #thediarygame #theshoppinggame #the1000daysofsteem - inappropriately we would appreciate if you leave a polite comment on the posts asking the authors not to use the tags.

We will try to reward any such comments with Lucky 10 votes if we see them.

If you find any people persistently tag spamming please comment on one of our posts and we will check them out.

The Diary Game Season 2 - Recruitment Points Update

Following yesterday's post about the new Recruitment Points system for Season 2 of The Diary Game a number of people asked in the comments about people they have recruited since Season 1 ended.

If you have been busy recruiting people in the last couple of weeks we don't want you to miss out on possible Recruitment Points in Season 2.

Therefore if you have recruited people to Steem to play The Diary Game since July 11th we would like you to make a post between July 29th - July 31st listing all the people you have recruited.

These should just be people who are definitely going to take part in Season 2 of The Diary Game. You should include links to their posts where they mention that you recruited them. They should also have made a This Is Me or an introduction post - please include links in your post.

This will only apply to people new to Steem, or who have been dormant on the platform for at least 12 months.

Once Season 2 starts they will also need to mention who recruited them in their first three diary posts.

Thank you,

The Steemit Team

Hello @steemitblog @steemcurator01 and the community

The team Steem Ceylon from Sri Lanka is now officially ready for #thediarygame phase II. Here is the establishment notice.

Thank you!

Excellent guide here. What then is the place of communities in relation to these games. Should they be posted on blogs or any community?

Very important

My original id name is @ospro. I've use this account more then 2.3 years. But My favorite account was banned yesterday. I have a lot of memories with this account. From my college life, so far I have shared many beautiful moments on steemit. I don't want to lose them. I have a lot of old pictures in steemit . I am requesting to fix my account again.Some of my friends and brothers are doing a lot of good activities at steemit and they have formed a community in Bangladesh. I want to work very well with them. I have already helped them a lot. I don't want to leave this platform like this

It’s great to start lucky 10’s initiative for tag spam because this will definitely stop the tag spam and I think it will also decrease your headache for this.

I will definitely make an post about my recruitment’s but it’s still going on. So I will make an one when I think the list is getting over.

Thanks so much for clarifying all these issues to us. I am going to also share these great points highlighted in this blog to the new Ugandan steemians that iam just afew hours to meet-up with.

Thanks so much Steem Team for the updates.

thank you for giving an explanation, we steemians always need direction so that each of our game posts matches what you expect

Thanks a lot for the clarification of the usage of tags and the recruitment of newcomers in season 2 game. Maybe I will rather mention them beneath the announcement I will make in my country representatives shortly. Thanks for this updates, my pleasure!

Hey @steemcurator01 & @steemitblog

First of all congratulations to @steemitblog on completing 500 posts

& the good news is I have done with creating team @steemingindia01 with 5 Indians

Hi @steemitblog. I'm new to Steemit, I saw this post thanks to the invitation from @adeljose through this post:


I have to make a post to enter the competition

Greetings friend @gabriel2020. I think you can make a post about what you have seen in these two days in the platform, besides including your acceptance to be one of my recruits, I will advise you whenever you want. We have the opportunity to live a little close.

It's my point of view, I hope I don't bother with this comment to my friends @steemitblog and #TeamSteemit.

Thank you for the very detailed explanation about everything. I believe this this clear confusion of everyone who's worry about the rules and guidelines to participate and win! Great work team! @steemitblog @steemcurator01

As a newbie, this post really explained it will. Now I also tried to form my own team for the #thediarygame season 2, I hope that they will accept it and more recruits to come. @steemcurator01 here is my report for my newly invited friend in the platform.


Hi @steemitblog and @steemitcurators here's a link to another of my recruit. He is looking forward to participating in the season 2 of the diary game.



Very important information and clarification, having clear rules makes it easier to do the dynamics correctly

Una información y aclaración muy importante, tener las reglas claras facilita hacer la dinámica correctamente

Thanks for this updates, my pleasure!Gracias por estas actualizaciones, un placer!

Already organizing the working groups for the newspaper game #thediarygame.

Ya organizando los grupos de trabajo para el juego del diario.


This tagging education will definitely increase efficiency for contents and curation!

A worthy and necessary endeavour to be commended!

Thanks indeed for your persistent commitment!

Terimakasih atas penjelasannya tim steemit ini sangat berguna untuk para steemians agar tidak mengunakan tag dengan sembarangan... Salam dari indonesia.
