100 DAYS OF STEEM : Day 35 - Delegations for Community LeaderssteemCreated with Sketch.

in #the100daysofsteem21 days ago

We now have seven Community Curators, four Steem Greeters just starting and soon some Social Promoters.

Thank you to everyone who has taken on these roles.

With members of the community stepping forward to get involved like this we really do feel that we are at the beginning of a whole new era for Steem.

Today we want to take one more step on this path with the launch of an initiative to recruit and reward active Community Leaders.


Community Leaders

The Communities feature of Steem is something we see as being at the centre of the future development of the platform.

Communities can add another level of richness and diversity to Steem as a social network platform.

Following on from the Communities Brainstorm on Day 17 we are currently working on a number of enhancements to the Communities feature set.

While the technology of the Communities feature is obviously important, it will in reality be the Community Leaders, and the people they gather round them, that will determine whether Communities are a success.

We therefore want to recognise this by rewarding the most successful Community Leaders with delegations like the Steem Greeters and Social Promoters.

These delegations will be direct to the Community Leader’s account and will be ongoing as long as they are actively performing in the role.

The delegations will start at 1000 SP and will increase as they continue to build their Communities.


How to apply for a Community Leader delegation

These delegations are to reward the individual effort that goes into running a successful Steem Community.

We are looking to give the delegations to the people who are working hardest to build and promote the best Communities.

It is not just about numbers of members, but also activity, engagement and innovation.

We are primarily looking at people running communities around specific subjects, languages or geographic areas rather than curation reward oriented communities.

If you are interested in getting a Community Leader delegation please make an application post giving details of…

  • your experience on Steem
  • the Community you run, including what it covers, its history, and how it operates
  • ways you are promoting your Community and recruiting new members
  • any special activities in your Community
  • your future plans for the Community
  • the name and hive-123456 type address of the Community.

Please put a link to your application post in the comments below.

In the first instance we are looking specifically for people who set up the communities and act as the Admins, but this will be expanded later to include Mods.

Applications can be made in any language, but should include at least an English summary (Google Translate will be fine).

There is no specific quota for the number of these delegations to be given out, but applications for the first round of delegations should be submitted by Thursday, May 14th.

Community Leaders selected to receive delegations will be encouraged to make regular posts reporting on the progress of their communities. These posts will be rewarded with votes from the @steemcurator01 account.

Please note that while we are primarily looking for Community Leaders who are running communities using the inbuilt Steem community feature, we may consider applications from people running exceptional communities on Discord.


Social Promoters

There is still one more day to apply to become a Steem Social Promoter. This role will also earn direct delegations…


Community Curators

Applications for the June Community Curators are open until May 21st.

We are looking for people to run seven Community Curation accounts - two with 500K SP and five with 200K SP…



While we are very excited to see as wide a range of people as possible getting involved in helping build the new Steem, we are quite open to anyone who feels able to take on more than one of the various roles available.

This does therefore provide the opportunity to earn more than one delegation at the same time.

As a final point of clarification while we have nothing against people being actively involved in different platforms we are looking to give most reward to those focusing their efforts and their attention on Steem.

Thank you,

The Steemit Team

Good Stuff! Keep it up.

Always positive.

Communities leaders
Communities can add another level of richness and diversity to Steem as a social network platform.

This is sounding like a political speech from the left...(eli powell is a full on lefty)

Makes me want to leave steem, hearing this stuff.
(Pssstt..leftism is dying, if not soon to be dead. Media outlets promoting leftism are dying also -Check if you don't believe me -... Platforms actively using this old fashioned, lefty terminology/word salad, may well soon follow. Just sayin')

What do you consider leftism? I think universal health care, free education and a working social security system which ensures everyone has a pension for their old age is not only necessary it is a right worth fighting for. Is this leftism? Because frankly nobody says what it is they just use the word like a Bogey Man. Now let's go to capitalism, do you think it is right that someone like Jeff Bezos can feed one million people every day and still his fortune would increase at the end of the year? I say tax them hard, nobody needs the kind of money they have. And most millionaires and billionaires. don't even make their money that honestly.

There is no capitalism. There is cronyism, corporatism,etc. (crapitalism)
(hence the bezo, gates, etc).

You can't have capitalism with central banking. Is mathematically impossible.(money supply and interest rates are not price discovery related).

Leftism is 'legalized theft'. (taxation by coercion)

But all are thieves that is why I want to know what exactly defines leftism to you, just legalized theft is not a suitable definition. I already told you what I expect from a government, beyond that a government is useless to me. Well it it is needed when you think of infrastructure, somebody has to have a managing hand there. I have seen people here responding to being anarcho-capitalists, this is impossible, you are one or the other you can't be both. Anarchy is no government, a laudable ideal, but hardly reachable.

Leftism = authoritarianism.
Right = authoritarianism.

Bureaucracies justify there own existence,by growing - and extracting more and more wealth from the producers as they do(us).
Leftism promotes bureaucracy.
Leftism necessitates more and more bureaucracy to administrate the self perpetuating offices that grow or die.(as is obvious to see over all modern countries)

Anarchy doesn't mean no government, it means no rulers.
A subtle difference - in the same way a creek is the same as the grand canyon, kinda subtle.
People get things done, not governments. (excluding wars and imperialism)
Organizing is not the same as being governed and taxed.

Accepting that 'all are thieves' is accepting being robbed. I do not accept that as a preferable state of affairs.

Leftism, and the right, are authoritarians.

So, what is your solution? First you have to get rid of nationalism, you have to get rid of borders, world wide, then you have to have people work as a Kibbutz works in Israel, collectively and for the benefit of all, sounds like a very organized form of socialism. So I think it is not socialism or communism you don't like, your dislike is for totalitarianism, which is about the only type of government the world has seen. Somebody told me in the Scandinavian countries this is being phased out, but I have no way of knowing as I have never been there.

Socialism is cancer. For society, for individuals, for everyone.

National borders are a great idea - it's decentralization in action.

The structure of _government is the problem.
When 20-50% of your taxable income is spent of killing women and children in some other country, and you have zero say in it,the bureaucracies are out of control.

Decentralization is the key. Smaller and smaller borders are a natural function this.
(state autonomy for example with the exception of a nations borders, threat).

There is no perfect answer, as society is in constant flux.
Authoritarianism (the extreme being totalitarianism) is no answer.

Dear @steemitblog

Another amazing initiative.

While the technology of the Communities feature is obviously important, it will in reality be the Community Leaders, and the people they gather round them, that will determine whether Communities are a success.

It's hard not to agree, that communities are only a took. Very important one, however still - just a tool. Empowering community leaders is definetly way to go if you want more communities on STEEM blockchain to flourish.

The delegations will start at 1000 SP and will increase as they continue to build their Communities.

That part left me just a bit speachless. 1000 SP delegation sounds more like marketing tool, than actual support which can make any community leader efforts more efficient. I'm afraid, that 1k SP cannot make much difference. Ever upvote with 100% voting power is kind of worthless.

Please don't take me wrong. I'm still supporting this idea - however I'm also trying to be realistic.

IMPORTANT QUESTION:
I'm managing project.hope community and our community received support in form of having an access to @ steemcurator06.

Our community has few leaders collaborating with each other (including me). Can our representatives apply as well for "Community Leader delegation"?

As a final point of clarification while we have nothing against people being actively involved in different platforms we are looking to give most reward to those focusing their efforts and their attention on Steem.

Very wise approach. Reward instead of punishing.

Have a great upcoming weekend,
Yours, Piotr

Agree that 1000SP delegations are pretty worthless

I'll take a 1000 sp delegation

Recognition not reward.

Hey @steemcurator01 ,

Now two people are supporting hindi translation by resteeming the post @alokkumar121 & @rajan1995

Here is today’s translation:-100 दिन STEEM : दिन 35 - Delegations for Community Leaders

Its positive initiatives for all steemians who are enjoying this platform with promoting their communities, have a steem on!

Excellent! Any chance my previous application qualifies under Community Leader delegation? 😀

You will need to make a new application post specific to the Community Leader role.

Thank you

The Steemit Team

Just remember for every account you favor you harm any number of smaller accounts.
You do it with stake that wasn't earned by blogging.
You cannot use the ninjamine, irrespective of title, without making this game less attractive.

My suggestion?
Slap a 500mv cap on voting influence, and let the many build this platform rather than the select few, eh?

Corporate speak won't fly here, this is a dao.

Hi @steemitblog and the whole team!
If you have any time to read our latest post please kindly do so: https://steemit.com/steemdev/@futureshock/steemscan-com-steem-from-a-to-z-through-its-most-ergonomic-explorer

We have released a new explorer for Steem, and would like to submit a delegation request at the same time to hit two targets with one bullet.

Feel free to reach us for any question.

Steemscan looks very good.

You might be interested in applying for one of the Community Curator accounts that are available for up to 500K SP...

Thank you

Aren't you kind of bored with those silly memos @preparedwombat?

Thanks for the vote @steemcurator01!

You’re making it very clear where you stand on the question of tyrannical governance. Great job!

Please, tell me, is this "tyranny" with us here right now? How is she, is she ugly, is she scarry?
