Welcome to the 5th update from the @steemcommunity witness.

If you are visiting our page for the first time and would like to find out more about our project, please take a look at our initial contribution:

Introducing @steemcommunity - A Witness Project by @abh12345 and @paulag

We would like to begin by sincerely thanking everyone for the early support for our witness. Our current ranking of #69 (woop!) is way beyond where we saw ourselves this early in the journey.

Thank you!

1. Server update to v0.19.12

At the end of last week, we managed to get v0.19.12 running stably on our server. Unfortunately, this was not without issues and we missed a handful of blocks. There is room for improvement, as with most things, and we are looking at a notification system to provide guidance here.

The goal as we move forward is to build redundancy into our set-up, but this is currently at a cost outside our budget. We will be reviewing this as we go.

2. Partnership with C² - @c-squared

Following recent discussions, we are delighted to announce a partnership with the C² community!

@steemcommunity has been seeking a team of like-minded individuals that care for the future of Steem, and we think we have found the perfect group.

We hope to support @c-squared initially in the form of delegation, to further strengthen their 100% manual, 200 strong curation team. As our account grows, further options should become available.

We have total faith that C² are working towards a better Steem Community.

C² - @c-squared

Three months have flown by and the C² Curation Collective continues to grow. Nearly 8,000 posts have been up-voted & resteemed through the @c-squared community account after manual curation & review in the C² Discord server.

@c-squared has consistently up-voted over 500 posts each and every week!


What is C²?

The Curation Collective, AKA C² / @c-squared, is a community intended for curators

on the Steem blockchain. Curators share curated links in the C² Discord server; C² voters review submitted posts for spam/plagiarism then up-vote & resteem on the @c-squared community account.

Any individual curator or curation group is welcome to join C² on Discord:

  • Up-vote & resteem under-rewarded authors and great posting on the @c-squared community account;
  • Promote engagement in comments on the STEEM blockchain.

Curate you beauties!

·

Awesome! This is the start of something beautiful :) I am so excited to see the growth of communities on Steem!

·
·
·

Thanks buddy! How's @comedyopenmic doing? Link me a funny!

·
·
·

comedy is super subjective, for me i could really identify with this piece after finishing 3 degrees that I hardly used today

Yes but the winner might not always be what's tickled you the most :)

Taking a look now...

·

That's awesome Ash! Nice job :)

Awesome to partner with @c-squared, Im really excited about the future here on steemit

·

woohoo! go paulag....oh yeah glad you guys got witness stable and running again

·

Likewise @paulag! I think we all share a common vision and excitement around realizing that vision!


This post was shared in the Curation Collective Discord community for curators, and upvoted and resteemed by the @c-squared community account after manual review.

It's great collaborations!

The more can help others Steemian to grow up on Steemit!

·
·
·

My honorable @abh12345
As an Indonesian curator in C-Squared, I'm glad knew it.

Let's grow up together!

As you know, I'm a huge fan of c-squared, so this is simply a match made in heaven :) Hope it garners more support for @steemcommunity as well :)

·

Thank you very much for the support Lynn! :D

·
·

You're most welcome Asher! It's my pleasure :)

Things will smooth out and growth will happen as more people learn about the witness status. I just learned about the @witnesspage today, like just a few hours ago. That I think will be a big help.

One thing that may help is having on the http://steemcommunity.org/ page a links page to things that are hard to find and people look for all the time. Like the links you referenced above "What is a Witness" and "Why you should care". I do like that you have the .org link on the user bar of the page, when time permits a few additions to it would be helpful

·

Cheers for the suggestions, I think we will follow your lead here :)

·

great suggestion, thank you

Congrats with the server updates. And the partnership with C2. This is a good progress. 😎

·

massive progress - we are a happy team

That's an exciting collaboration with @c-squared! It's just exciting to see "communities" forming on their own accord, independently of Steemit's promises to add a "communities" feature.

=^..^=

·

Yes for sure, it shows how much additional features to support 'communities' are required.

Thanks for your support cat!

I’m so excited for this partnership! I admire both of you so much and support what you are doing for the platform. I respect the integrity and high Steem morals you bring into every decision you make. I am proud to be apart of it and think the two groups will be able to do a lot of good together. Thank you ❤️

·

Thank you! I feel the same towards you and the team and hope that together we can do even more :D

Nice update. I didn't hear about this initiative before, but it sounds good. Will be following you and have just voted for your witness.
