1000 DAYS OF STEEM : Day 18 - STEEM POD - Community Curators for August and September
As announced earlier in the month we are now looking to use the Community Curator accounts on a more geographically targeted basis.
The enthusiasm for forming country based teams for Season 2 of The Diary Game has reinforced for us that focusing the growth of Steem at the regional and country level has a great deal of potential.
We therefore want to add to that effort with a new deployment of the Community Curator accounts.
The Community Curators for August and September
Two of the Community Curator accounts are being redeployed temporarily to assist with the curation of Season 2 of The Diary Game.
They will be operated by additional members of the Steemit Team...
@steemcurator02 (500K SP) will be focusing on Diary Game entries from Latin America
@steemcurator05 (200K SP) will be focusing on Diary Game entries from China and Korea.
They will be working in tandem with the main curation account @steemcurator01.
As mentioned yesterday @steemcurator03 (500K SP) will continue to be operated by the Steem Greeters team to support newcomers to Steem.
The existing Steem Greeters - @cryptokannon, @mariita52, @kiwiscanfly, along with @oppongk, @yohan2on and @rishabh99946 - are now being joined by a number of new Country Representatives who joined the STEEM POD yesterday.
The remaining three Community Curator accounts will be deployed on a regional basis and will be operated by the relevant Country Representatives...
These accounts should be used to vote only on Steemians in their respective geographic regions.
The new curators should refer to the July Community Curators post for general guidelines about using the accounts.
It is hoped that we are able to appoint additional Country Representatives to assist with these regional Curator accounts imminently.
We especially would like to find more Country Representatives to assist @anroja with the South East Asia account as soon as possible. Any suggestions in Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Thailand, Vietnam and Singapore are welcome.
It is hoped all accounts will give particular attention to newcomers to Steem, and also to entries to Season 2 of The Diary Game while that is running.
It will be especially helpful if the community curators leave appropriate comments on any Diary Game posts they spot that are not following the rules such as not including the date in the title.
For each Community Curator account, one full vote per day may, if desired, be used to reward the STEEM POD members operating the account.
Where there is more than one person running an account we hope the members will work out a suitably fair rotation between themselves.
We will be monitoring the use of the accounts regularly. They will initially run for a period of two months and then be reviewed.
We are very interested to see how the new direction for the Community Curator accounts works out.
It is hoped the new geographical focus of some of the accounts will support the continued growth of Steem in those areas.
The current operators of the Curator accounts who are losing them we know will be disappointed but we have to respond to the shifting dynamics of the Steem blockchain.
We are keen to deploy the available resources to optimal effect for the continued growth of the Steem community.

Anyone Interested in a STEEM Payment Card?
Long time Steem promoter @stephenkendal has posted to gauge community support for some form of Smart Card, Contactless Payment System or Mobile Application for using STEEM for direct payments...
- Question to the Steem Community. Would you like to spend your Steem on the High Street and with Merchants that have existing Fiat Payment Infrastructure already in place
