100 DAYS OF STEEM : Day 84 - Community Curators for July 2020
Thank to everyone who applied to become a Community Curator for July.
There were some great candidates that made the selection of the new Curators difficult.
Now we have been through all the applications and chosen the seven Curators.
The Community Curators for July
As before there are seven Community Curators accounts available this coming month - two with 500K SP and five with 200K SP.
The seven Community Curators for July 1st to July 31st...
500K SP - The Steem Greeters - [STEEM POD Special Project]
After reading the details below, please would each of the selected Curators confirm their acceptance of the role and the guidelines in a comment by midnight UTC on Monday, June 29th. The new curators should also include a contact Discord, Telegram or email address.
Any Curators that haven’t confirmed by then will be replaced by another Curator.
If you know any of the Curators in the list do let them know that they have been selected.
Usage of the Community Curator Accounts
The aims of the Community Curator Project are…
- To reward and encourage the creation of ‘good content’. The definition of good content will be left to the Community Curators to determine in the context of the type of posts and the community/ies in which they are curating.
To encourage participation and engagement on Steem. Community Curators are free to vote on and reply to worthwhile comments on posts.
To encourage newcomers to Steem with upvotes and helpful comments.
To help build any Communities where they are curating.
Each Community Curator account will be given to an individual user, or if the application has been made on behalf of a Community or an App, to a nominated ‘Account Manager’.
For Communities and Apps that Account Manager will be responsible for the usage of the account. They must inform Steemit Inc if they decide to share the keys with any other curators within their community or app.
To ensure ‘best use’ of the Community Curator accounts we will be requesting that users follow a number of strict guidelines…
The accounts must not be used for downvoting.
The accounts should only be used for upvoting.
The accounts should not be used for making posts, only for making curation comments.
We are looking for curators to vote for as wide a range of accounts as possible, rewarding quality and original posts.
Preference can be given to posts that are #steemexclusive, but that is not a requirement for upvoting.
- All votes on posts should be accompanied by a comment that includes the line “This post has been rewarded by [NAME OF THE COMMUNITY CURATOR] with support from the Steem Community Curation Project.
Monitoring and Rewards
The usage of the Curator accounts will be monitored closely and anyone found misusing them will have their access withdrawn.
As a reward for their curation work Community Curators are encouraged, but not obliged, to vote on one of their own posts each day.
If there is more than one person in the Community Curator team these daily ‘reward votes’ should be rotated through the members of the team, but should not exceed one vote per day.
Community Curators may also post weekly reports on their curation activities, although these are not obligatory. These weekly posts will be rewarded with a Steemit vote, but not necessarily at 100%.
If the Curators chose to make a weekly report the format will be left to them to decide although they might include a statement of their curation goals and an assessment of how well they have met those goals in the preceding week.
They might also include some curation statistics and some examples of the best posts that have been curated.
The Community Curator Project - Big Changes in August
We are happy to confirm that even though the 100 Days of Steem project will be ending on July 11th, the Community Curators will be continuing.
However there will be some significant changes to how the Community Curators operate from August onwards.
Full details of the changes, and how to apply for the next round, will be posted at the beginning of July.
STEEM POD News
As mentioned a few days back we are currently reviewing the STEEM POD Project.
The review is still ongoing for another week or two.
@team-mexico appears to have stopped posting about a week ago. Does anyone know what has happened to them?
We are still looking to bring in more people into the STEEM POD.
Therefore we would like to invite @beautychicks to make an application post if she would be interested in joining the STEEM POD to help continue to develop Steem Africa.
The new Music For Steem weekly music contest has got off to a flying start thanks to the excellent work of @steemingcurators and the rest of the team.
We have made @musicforsteem an honorary member of the STEEM POD and have sent a delegation of 5000 SP to help the project in its early stages.
As ever choosing the Community Curators for the new month presents some difficult choices.
While there will be disappointment for some we hope those that have been successful for July will enjoy their month as Community Curators.
As mentioned above we have some exciting changes planned for the Community Curators Project.
We are looking forward to sharing those with you in a couple of weeks.
