500SP Minnowsupport Program for Existing Steemian


Currently, 19 existing steemian are under this program and 4 users are dormant with no activity of posting and commenting on their account for the past 7 days.

All of the newcomers that have at least completed until at least Achievement 4 are eligible to apply for 500SP Minnowsupport.

I hope all of the Country Representatives could help us pass this information to steemian from your country.
All of newcomers who have graduated from the Newcomers Achievement Program will be automatically listed under this program and finally in the Proof of Dedication Whitelist.

Below is the google sheet table I use for tracking their retention rate

Steem Greeters Team Weekly Update and Progress

Every week I will issue a new weekly table in the form of access to a google sheet for everyone in the team to fill in the Newcomers' data after they have greeted the newcomers on the Achievement 1 post and after they curate their other Achievement tasks.
Here is the current table for Newcomers Progress Weekly Report for 3rd Week of September 2020

Currently we are still trying to improve the coordinating and communicating between all the Country Representatives(CRs).
I will be doing weekly discussion with all the Country Representatives on how they are doing right now and if they have any ideas to share on how to improve our communication and also the join effort on buidling the community in steemit.

Last week we actually have some great discussion on steemingcurators discord server on how to build a community. @focusnow have shared his idea and knowledge on this topic and we learned a lot from his input. There are some of the Country Reps that not yet in the discord, so I think we better have an open discussion on steemit post so everyone can chip in and contribute their idea whenever they have a chance to do so.

Steem Greeters Team Member contribution:

I have proposed some curation tasks and steem greeters task to the new appointed CRs.
The tasks is voluntary and we will put you in the rotation list for 100% daily upvote from steemcurator03 if you have accomplished the tasks specifically assigned to you.
I believe steemcurator01/The Steemit Team will upvote your weekly report as a member of The Steem Greeters Team too.
Please submit your weekly report as Steem Greeter and also as Country Representatives at the community for STEEM POD member here STEEM POD Team

I have assigned the task of curating the Achievement Task to the CRs as following:

Achievement 1
@randulakoralage and @fendit will be helping with verification and curating the newcomers in Achievement 1 task and update their title to the current achievement on the newcomers community and also into the table.

Achievement 2
@rishabh99946 and @kiwiscanfly will be curating task for Achievement 2 and update and update their title to the current achievement on the newcomers community and also into the table.

Achievement 3
@beautychicks and @kiwiscanfly will be curating the task for Achievement 3 and update and update their title to the current achievement on the newcomers community and also into the table.

Achievement 4:
@neerajkr03 and @njiatanga will be curating the task for Achievement 4 and and update their title to the current achievement on the newcomers community and also into the table.

Achievement 5 and 6:
They will be curating the task for Achievement 5 and 6 and update their title to the current achievement on the newcomers community and also into the table.

@tarpan and @toufiq777 are maintaining the table for newcomers coming from Bangladesh and also helping fill in other newcomers data in Achievement 1 before @fendit and @randulakoralage curating the Achievement 1 task.

I also ask them to help updating the STATUS for newcomers in the table every week so we have the data on how many newcomers are still active and dormant.

The Greeters Fairy Team

I have assigned @tocho2 @belenguerra @girolamomarotta @besticofinder to help with greeting the newcomers that on #introduceyourself tag or any other tag that newcomer might use as their introduction post on steemit.
They will also be curating them with steemcurator03 as per our curation guideline and inviting them to join the Newcomers Community and the program that we The Steem Greeters Team have for Newcomers.

I'm helping with curation for Achievement 1, greeting newcomers with The Greeters Fairy Team, maintaining 500SP Minnowsupport Program and tracking all other small participants from other countries in rotation through the tables to encourage retention.
I'm still guiding and coordinating (in the discord server) the new member of The Steem Greeters Team, that is our newly appointed CRs that are showing interest in helping with the project.

We are grateful if you steemian could help us on welcoming/greeting and also encourage the newcomers from the introduceyourself tag or any newcomers that you invite to join steemit/see not yet in the Newcomers Community to join us. Please do so at your convenience.

Message to my fellow Country Representative

To all Country Representatives I hope you will help us The Steem Greeters Team to spread the information about the existence of the Newcomers Community to the newcomers that you see in your community or coming from your country.
Please let them know that we have a community for newcomers and the Newcomers Achievement Program that they can complete at their own pace, and IF they are able to pass at least until Achievement 4, they are qualified to apply for the 500SP Minnow Support Program
As we know it's hard for some to complete the task from Achievement 5-6 as this requires a proper tool such as a PC or laptop to accomplish.

We have a community for STEEM POD member/Country Representatives to post their weekly/monthly report here STEEM POD Community

Cameroon (@njiatanga), Ghana (@oppongk), Nigeria (@beautychicks, @focusnow), Uganda (@yohan2on), Argentina (@fendit, @belenguerra), Venezuela (@anasuleidy, @mariita52, @tocho2, @edlili24, @adeljose ), Bangladesh (@tarpan, @toufiq777), India (@neerajkr03, @rishabh99946, @sapwood), Indonesia (@anroja, @ernaerningsih,@radjasalman, @nazarul ), Japan (@cryptokannon), Pakistan (@rashid001), Sri Lanka (@randulakoralage,@besticofinder), Russia (@knopka145, @filinpaul ), Ukraine (@olesia,@antorv) and New Zealand (@kiwiscanfly), Italy (@girolamomarotta)

Curation Report for @steemcurator03

We use the @steemcurator03 Steem Community Curator account mostly for curating the Achievement tasks, 500SP Minnowsupport Program and also rotation curation for newcomers retention.
We also use it for daily ‘reward votes’ rotation, currently, I'm in charge of upvoting only the Steem POD members who actively contribute their time and efforts on the newcomers' achievement program which is maintaining the table and curating the achievement task.

Country Representative for Japan

I am supporting steemian from Japan on their thediarygame post and other posts too.
I have delegated 500SP to @japan-steemit(team account for thediarygame team) and another 500SP to @steem-japan a curation trail project by shortsegments here to support the contents of Japan steemian.
If you're Japanese steemian or currently steeming from Japan please consider delegate some of your steem power to these accounts to support steemian from Japan, in turn, we will put your account name in the curation trail too.
I have discovered 3 newcomers @sathsara93 @kalpa-sameera @chamaranuwan currently working in Japan but they are originally from Sri Lanka. I have asked them to use #japan as one of their tag for their diary game post.

Other contributions:
I usually just try to make myself useful in the community. I don't know how to code and don't have that much steem power to curate steemian so I will try my best to fill in the gap wherever it need to be fill in the community.
I want steem value to increase proportional with time and want to help build strong Steem Community.
I mostly spend my time for The Steem Greeters Project and soon Steemingcurators Community too.
I am grateful for the support from The Steemit Team on my work in the community.
I welcome and appreciate any feedback regarding The Steem Greeters Team Project.

Thank you so much and I'm grateful for the cooperation and teamwork shown by the members of The Steem Greeters Team on the project, thank you for your help and contributions, to all of you Steem Community supporting our project in any way,I appreciate it, and special big thank you to The Steemit Team @steemitblog @steemcurator01 for their constant support and words of encouragement and a constant communication on the project and our works in the community as a whole. Much Love!

Kind Regards,
The Steem Greeters Team Project Coordinator & Japan Country Representative.

Thank you for this report and for all your great work with the Steem Greeters.

It appears we particularly need to look at ways to help improve retention in Bangladesh (@tarpan, @toufiq777), Nigeria (@beautychicks, @focusnow) and Uganda (@yohan2on).

One part of this may be additional Country Reps.

All ideas welcome

@steemcurator01 I agree, we need to add more Country Reps for Bangladesh as they are about 125 verified newcomers now in the program.
I think @focusnow is doing great with @steemalive for the South African community, I just hope that he also will be taking care of the newcomers from South Africa in the Newcomers Community.
I haven't heard any feedback from @yohan2on regarding the retention from the South African country.
I will put more effort into building the steemingcurators community so the newcomers can just join this community if they can't find the community of their interest yet.
I think we need more exposure to 500SP Minnowsupport Program for Newcomers.
I will put an announcement about the requirement at the newcomers' community soon.

Thank you for this feedback.

Let us know how we can help give more exposure for the 500SP Minnowsupport Program for Newcomers.

Hello @cryptokannon. thanks so much for representing us the steemgreeters and for submitting this report. I had some issues with my laptop adapter and that's why I got delayed a bit to come up with the updated list of the African newcomers. However, I accomplished the tracking and updating of the data base today 18/09/2020. Kindly check out the week 3 spreadsheet.

I need to recruit more Ugandan people to steem. Most of the people I recruited seem to have dropped the interest in steem. I recently tried motivating them by helping them to withdraw their few SBDs they had made on their few posts they had posted but all seemed in vain.

Its so unfortunate that Some of them even left the whatsapp group. It's quite a challenge on my side. I believe, continuing to recruit more people will eventually create us a real uganda community of passionate and vibrant ugandan steemians. I am also looking forward to organising another steem meet-up in abid to motivate and encourage them to engage on steem.

I also support your idea of adding another CR for Uganda. However, that will be possible after getting more Ugandan passionate writers and steem lovers on on the steem chain. I am going to keep doing my level best regardless of the challenges I am facing with the current few people I have already onboarded.

Thanks steemit team @steemcurator01 for the support.

Of the ones you recruit are you managing to get them on the Newcomers Achievement Program?

Could you maybe organize contests just for Ugandan Steemians to keep them engaged? Or maybe jointly with @oppongk for Ghana too?

The Steemit Team

That's a good idea. I am going to organise one and inform each one of them to participate in it. It will also be opened to the Gahanaian steemians.

Thanks so much steemit team for such a nice advise.

This is the main reason why dormant is more in Bangladesh. Some people are skipping posting after Achivement1. Again I have seen some people who have just achieved Achievement 1,2,3. After that they did not post any more And there are about 30 people like this. Those who have done this kind of work. We have nothing to do with them. We don't even know them. And they have no contract with us.

I and tarpan are trying a lot. We have opened discord and facebook group. So, that we can communicate with everyone. We are trying to get all the people we know to work regularly. We keep giving contests regularly to keep them active. We are also trying to give them all the necessary facilities.

I gave art and photography contest last week. There were 13 participants in my photography contest. And about 18 people participated in the art contest. If we can support them. Then I hope our list of dormant in Bangladesh will be reduced to a little.

And it would have been better if we had one more country representative. @rex-sumon helped me and @tarpan a lot.

Thanks @steemcurator01. The retention is more important.

@cryptokannon is really doing a great work here on steemit, the @steemalive community has been doing great on the aspect of retention and also recruiting new users daily. in other enhance the Retention this countries, there will be need for new country Reps. @yohan2on has been doing a great job also, if more country reps join him, it will enhance the retention from the south Africans. our derive and goal is to advance steem to its higher plane.

Thanks @cryptokannon for this report and your consistent effort in the Greeters team!

If the 1000 days of Steem will be able to produce 1000 steemians in each community with at least 500 SP, then it will perfectly make the communities self-sufficient with collaboration & will be sustainable without being over-dependent on steemcurator01. Ideally, this program is designed to achieve such an objective. But the CRs have a greater role to play to achieve this.

Excellent report.

Thank you.

Steem on.

Good report ! CR's can understand the progress of their country easily with this statics

Your report is very good. Which has given us a lot of information.

 8 months ago 

looks like the statistics would have taken lots of hardwork btw i saw in Pakistan its stated that we have only one active member ? i think the list isn't updated? or is old report because about 7-8 are permanent active members :)

Your Attention would be beneficial for the members of Steem Pakistan And will help improving content

Hey @cryptokannon I will support Japanese steemians but delegate to what account? shortsegments or steem-japan?

You are doing your job very well, appreciated, I would love to be a part of it😊❤️
