'Castle Rules'

As a family, living together in the same community (informerly known as 'The Castle'), we are all subject to the same rules. This used to be a set of loose guidelines, but, things have been taken advantage of and we continue to grow, so, we want to make sure people are aware of a few things. One, that you actually want to be here within #thealliance stronghold. Two, you understand what we're about and exactly what it is that we do.

RULE #1 - Your Egg

If you haven't retrieved an egg from a brood mother Chericleps on planet Zyngroptha yet, you should probably do so. You cannot seriously be considered for membership until you realize - this isn't really rule #1.

RULE #2 - Quality

Quality of your posts will be checked upon your APPLICATION submission. Yes. It doesn't matter if your reputation is 75 and you have a million STEEM Power, we are all on a level playing field here. I imagine your posts would be quite good though, if you are that high up on the food chain. If your application and posts are deemed well and good, you will be notified of our decision. Please be patient as we all have an agenda and cannot immediately reply with an answer. We want to continue to keep Steemit a place of creative birth and enjoyment. We do NOT care for copied and pasted, a 5-year-old-kid-could-have-done-it material. People caught plagiarizing WILL be reprimanded.

RULE #3 - Engagement

We are a TEAM of quality content creators and curators - allies. We strive to do several things for each other. First and foremost, bolster each others positive growth with our 'votes of approval' and occasionally resteeming a much enjoyed post. We will comment on the ones that tickle our minds. Commenting is highly appreciated as it lets us know what you really thought about a post. We know you can't upvote everyone's posts effectively, but knowing you are there from time to time and showing your support is vital. It's just like saying, "hey fam, we got your back." Real simple.

Rule #4 - Consistency

Not only is quality highly prized, but consistency as well. I'm not saying post a dozen times a day, do what you're comfortable with, and then make it a habit to STAY comfortable. Maybe you post once a week, or every couple days? Just, once you start swimming, remember to KEEP ON SWIMMING or you're likely to drown out there in this vast Steemit ocean. We've had some pretty good quality creators fall off the grid and lose their memberships due to lack of Steemit engagement and/or getting greedy and posting crap. You want to take a crap, go find a bathroom, or an outhouse, or maybe even that quiet patch of trees. But, honestly, nobody really wants to see it ;)

RULE #5 - Family Expansion

Since we continue to grow and become a more solid unit, it is expected that new family members are welcomed by the rest of their aunts, uncles, sisters, brothers and cousins. Family is family. Families grow. Some branches die and fall away and new branches grow. This all started as a tiny seed in the pea-sized numb-skull brain of @enginewitty and now it's turning into a forest. Every one can spare a handful of votes per day, I vote on all of you and then some EVERY day, comment when I can and I see no reason anyone else shouldn't be able to do the same. Manual curation, automatic, it doesn't matter. Family comes first, be there for each other. ENGAGE.

*****Special Notice*****

Just because someone is accepted as a member or is a member now, does not necessarily mean they will forever remain a member. That is solely the choice of the ally to maintain the required participation level within the family. Members' content and engagement are checked periodically by the Quality Control Officers. The Juyo will also check to see the amount of support given to your family. If it is believed to be too low and an individual is lacking the desired family unity, then it is grounds for removal and MOST will be asked about your intentions. Notification will depend on the level of commitment you had shown PRIOR to getting put on the chopping block. Some may start strong and trickle off, some may not even graft themselves to the family tree at all. If you are or have been removed, feel free to re-apply at any time. All new and re-applying members are subject to the same application process, regardless of your STEEM Power or Reputation, and will be reviewed by the Application Board.

Click Here to Vote For Our WITNESSES

Witnesses

It is imperative that you vote for witnesses. They are the ones that basically let Steemit exist. They write all your transactions, all your comments, posts, upvotes, you name it - to the STEEM blockchain. From Steemit itself to @steepshot and @esteem, we 'record' it all. We have seven in #thealliance that have dedicated resources to doing just that. They are @derangedvisions, @enginewitty, @jatinhota, @guiltyparties, @thekitchenfairy, @c0ff33a and @noblewitness. Since you are an ally, we feel you should spare those 7 votes to those that have both the family and STEEM's better interests in mind. Please go vote if you have not already done so.

Support Accounts

Several of our members have decided to create support accounts for the family. @thealliance is one of them. We do this so we can spread even more love to our fabulous allies. We have many others from curation accounts to support bots. Please read this article to learn more about them. Our support structure is in place to help everyone.

Thank You

None of this works without each of us doing what we can to stay active and support each other. Thank you to all the family members out here! We come from all walks of life and are all unique. I love that about Steemit and how it brings everyone together. STEEM on my peoples and remember to keep BEING YOU!!

Well said. This is a really tight group. Proud to be part of it!

Slowly catching up on steem over the last week or so since having a break for a while... things change so much so quickly lol. Think I've now voted for all #thealliance witnesses and time to get around and see what everyone else has been up to!

Feels right to be part of this wonderful caring group. Thanks @enginewitty 🤗 😊 ❤️

#thealliance has been one great family. I am glad tp be a member of this community and I have come across so many like minded people here , feels great to be a part of the family

It's important of course we remember all the family, with so many members it is difficult to get around to every one and some can fall behind and be forgotten.

It helps of course being active and appearing everywhere, not everyone has the time to spare though. I think though we can all try to remember to mix up who visit, and share the comments and upvote around accordingly.

You want to take a crap, go find a bathroom or an outhouse, or maybe even that quiet patch of trees.

It is feels like family although I did not have a lot of time to spend on Discord keeping in touch with the alliance's members. I see your up votes and comments and I am grateful for them.

So so good to be part of the family.

There may be bigger groups, but not with as many real members or engaged witnesses. :D <3

woow very cool! thanks :D

Wow! I am feeling the love today! Thank you for letting me onto the playground, I promise to play nice! :D Can't wait to meet my new family members too :)

Phewww....I'm so pleasantly surprised to see my life values embedded in the rules above. Could have thought of the egg part though! Sending love, piece and good music...

I am so proud to be a member of this family and support members to the greatest extent that I am able to do! Thanks for this post reminder and I made sure that I don't miss voting on all the witnesses listed. Love you all!
