Community of the Month Support Program Application

in Steem Ghana2 months ago

Greetings Steemit Team,

We the leaders of @steem-ghana community are by this post putting in our application for the community of the month support program. We are humbled by the love and support we have received since the inception of our community on the blockchain and we believe that once given the opportunity through this application we can do more.

Community Purpose


Steem Ghana is the official community for Ghanaian steemians. It was set up to create a safe space for our countrymen to share their articles, connect and help us get to know each other well.

It also helps us country reps to better follow the posts of our Ghanaian steemians so that we can render assistance where possible. Community updates, meetups, activities, and events are also better prepared and can be pinned in the community for our members as well.

Our community is unique as it is the only Ghanaian-based community on steemit.

We urge all Ghanaian steemians to join us in our community since we can keep track of our members, guide them, and provide relevant assistance to support them. They will also get to know what is happening among steemians in Ghana once they join us.

Community Team


Our community is currently being run by the 3 country reps of Ghana namely; @njaywan, @oppongk, and @nattybongo. We are all from Ghana and the posts we get are primarily English-based ones. We don't prevent people from other communities from posting here so we sometimes get posts in other languages too.

In our community, we don't offer steem rewards for individual team members. We focus on growing together and see the generous upvotes we get from @steemcurator01 as a good compensation for our efforts.

Our keys have been shared with our team so in the event one loses his keys, there are still others with the keys to our curation account and the running of the Community

Community Curation Account


We support our members using the @steem-ghana curation account which currently has an effective steem power of 17,099 SP with 7,255.14 being its power and 9,843.86 delegated-in steem power.

Most of the rewards we receive on this account are powered up and the rest are used to tip delegators and reward participants of our programs like the weekly telegram meetings as a sign of motivation. In case the Community Account run contests, the winners are also motivated with some Steem Tokens from the Community Account.

All the 3 of us have access to voting with the community's curation account. We just need to make sure it doesn't fall below a certain percentage (75%) and the vote must be cast on posts from our Ghanaian origin.

At the time of this post, the voting CSI score of the account is 14.0. [source}(https://steemworld.org/@steem-ghana)

Although not everyone in the community had delegated their SP to this curation account, we try to include everyone in the voting process to ensure that no one gets left out.

Plagiarism & Abuse


We are very keen on eradicating plagiarism from our community outright. This is why we scrutinize each post trooping in within our community. Just as in our other duties, we work together and take turns in checking for plagiarism, voting with our community account (@steem-ghana) and the @steemcurator04 curation account.

This way, we can cover more grounds and ensure that our steemians are abiding by our rules. Currently, we are also running a moderator for the week program of which we pick out an individual member from within our hardworking steemians to work with us for a week. They are to help learn how our community operates, check plagiarism and we also run a contest with them.

We hope to use this to train them to become proficient on the platform. @farhmade and @delakloe have joined us to do this within the last 2 weeks.

We prohibit the use of copyrighted materials within our community which is why we constantly remind our members to stick to copyright-free sites like pixabay.com, pexels.com, unsplash.com, and so on for their images. If they have any difficulty, we correct them and if it persists, we must have their content or account downvoted.

To prevent duplicate or fake accounts, we have asked steem greeters to leave achievement one post verification of Ghanaian steemians strictly for us. That way, we can properly assess them and upon investigation, we can verify their account.

Engagement & Commenting


Members are strongly encouraged to engage with others on the blockchain and also leave good comments on posts. We also do well to ensure that no post is left unattended in terms of comments and voting. Since the inception of our top 5 daily posts challenge members have drastically increased their level of engagement and we are going to ensure that this keeps going on. The community team doesn't cover every single post in terms of comments however the community members have been made to understand because of which around 99% of post-receive comments.

Plans & Updates


As it stands now community team leaders do well to provide updates with regards to the community growth and development, contests, meetings, etc weekly. These updates are done with the community accounts except for contests for which we give the chance to members to host a new contest every week. We do have a roadmap, a long-term goal that seeks to make the community self-sufficient hence our consistency in powering up. We believe that in the future to come the community must be able to support its members even if nothing is coming in from outside.

Promotion


Aside from our community purpose, steem promotion is one of the activities Ghanaians are keen about and so we have our members regularly creating steem awareness, printing t-shirts, and flyers and doing a whole lot to take steemit to every nook and cranny of the country.

Every Ghanaian who enrolls on the blockchain is made to understand that our community is for Ghanaians for which 100% of all who join also join us. We also tell newbies and prospects about our community during steem promotional activities outside the blockchain, so they know that should they come on board they have a place waiting for them already.

Why Select Steem Ghana Community for extra support?


We are currently the only Ghanaian community on the blockchain and have over 200 Ghanaian steemians and counting as new members are signed up every day. Because of our hard works and successes, we also have lots of people from other countries joining us in our community. With our community account, we can support as many as we can alongside personal accounts of team leaders however this may just not be enough considering the weight of these votes combined. All post that goes through our community is steemexclusive because we strongly encourage and talk about it regularly.

We believe that with this extra support our community members will be able to do even more than as we are doing now and our long-term goal of making steem known throughout Ghana will be realized. Our community members are as hardworking as their leaders and are impacting the blockchain in many great ways that should we be considered would go a long way to also impact lives in Ghana as well. With this we can attest to the fact that currently most of Our "Pro New Comers who have been verified through all the achievement Tasks have enrolled themselves in the #SteemCryptoAcademy Courses both for Beginners and Intermediary. This tells how strongly our Community is promoting and receiving education in the Steem and the entire Crypto World.

Conclusion


We hope that our application would be considered for the communities of the month program. We look forward to doing even more for our community and the blockchain and will be amenable to any suggestions that may stem from steemit leaders too. Thanks for your time.

Our community grows in number each day with members seriously engaged in Steem Promo activities hoping to bring steem to every Ghanaian. Mass adoption of Steem is what most of us are earnestly seeking to achieve. In our endeavor to create steem awareness a lot of Impactful inititiatives have been enrolled to touch lives and give hope to the vulnerable and the less privilege in our societies. Getting support for our community will help us to build a strong community and greatly help to ensure members retention for the greater benefit of steem and the Steemit platform. Getting the support will help us to do more than we have done. Thanks to our country representatives @nattybongo @njaywan @oppongk for their tireless effort in building Steem Ghana Community

Truly, our community is unique since the only verified and accepted Ghanaian community on Steemit.
Though there are CRs, the administration of the community is somewhat decentralised to increase participation and our organisation is effective as members show interest in all activities organised.

Among other exciting factors, we are welcoming since everyone can participate in contest in the community provided the right tags are used and fairness is ensured in reward distribution and recognition.
These are all reasons why our community deserves the support continual support from curator accounts.

Sometimes it is always good to win the title but when it comes to ballon d'or, title doesn't really count, if we win it, is to our own advantage but if not, steemghana is a tree of life and what the country representatives are doing is explosive exceptyou have not being noticing it.

It is clear that this community has it members at hands and have been doing everything possible to ensure that quality content are been posted and awarded accordingly.

The community have helped soo many good content and i think it will be best for the steemit blockchain if the community is considered in the monthly support program.

Just taking a look at the post, it has outline few of the reasons why this community deserve such an opportunity and I know there is more to it than just what has been said. I will therefore edge the leaders to consider the community application.
