Neoxian City Photography & Dtube Contest, Outstanding Citizen Award, New Curator @axeman, Curator-picks and more!
Welcome to the Neoxian City weekly
Welcome folks to your weekly installment of what's going down in the City of Neoxian. If you haven't already, come in and join us in our discord to see what the latest is.
This week we have new curators, school updates, photo competitions and more.
Give a warm welcome to our newest curator, @axeman.
@axeman has joined us this week and has taken on the role of curating on Friday.
He is a professional photographer and adds another layer of colourful diversity to our highly creative team. Now our scope for curation can be broader.
Raymondspeaks has stepped down from his curation spot to allow this to happen. He thought it was best since we have so many talented writers on the curation team already. Having @axeman on our team gives us that extra level of creativeness to utilise.
Get better votes by using the neoxian.city website!
Please remember to use our website. People posting from neoxian.city have a higher chance of being rewarded well.
Posting from our website means that your post will be automatically shared in one of our discord channels where high stakeholders are waiting to curate.
Some of our high stake users have vowed only to curate from this channel.
As most of you are aware, 5% of all post rewards go to neoxianburn and are used to buy up more neoxag from the market.
Outstanding Citizen award
Trainee Dragon @raymondspeaks has taken it upon himself to offer his 10% earnings reward at the end of Sunday night, and merge it into an honour which can be bestowed on city dwellers for going above and beyond the call of duty. Make no mistake, this is an award that will be given to people for helping, sharing and giving, rather than taking and selling.
The prize will be no less than 1000 staked neoxag but will grow as he grows in stake power. Outstanding citizen will also get a daily upvote from him for an entire week
This award cannot be earned, it can only be given -- by that it means you can nominate someone, but you cannot vote for yourself. If no Citizens are chosen then the pool will roll over to the following week.
There is no winner this week.
Please be reminded that only exceptional work will stand a chance of winning. For example:
- Working hard outwith your normal earned duties
- Chatting lots
- Buying lots of coins from the market and staking them
- Upholding the city philosophy to a high standard
This is now the seventh week @raymondspeaks has done this, and that has been 6,000 neoxag stake he has given away.
To clarify -- you'll need to be in our server to be a Outstanding Citizen, an invite is here: https://discord.gg/RkvBGdS
Neoxian City storms Dtube again!
If you haven't already then I suggest you check out our Dtube competition which runs weekly.
This week we've already closed submissions for "turning a negative into a positive". But next week will be equally as exciting!!
You can enter this by checking our neoxian city dtube!
More to come. Much fun to be had!
We also run a photography competition
Please check out our photography competition. It runs weekly and is headed up by our very own @zaku. Competition is super stiff. If you enjoy a photo challenge then this should be right up your alley
If this is something you'd like to give a bash, come in and see us here
We have given out a massive amount of goodies this week. Check it out
Every day City owners & members alike will give away some of their coins or services to lucky winners in our discord. We have a rule that every giveaway must amount to over $0.25 in value.
So far, we have given out 1423 giveaways at the very least $0.25 and that amounts to $355.75 -- although the actual value is WAY higher.
Give yourself a clap everyone, you really deserve it.
Check out and get started on our Steemit packs in the City School
Our city school is offering free steemit starter packs for those that are active on our discord
Why not treat yourself and get a totally free course? You might actually learn something completely new. It's over two hours long and packed absolutely full of content. Done by someone that knows his way around this stuff.
All courses offered right now are absolutely free to city members. Why not utilise the skills of someone that has known crypto since 2013? :)
We are one of the most active discords on Steemit!!
Neoxian City is one of the most active Discords on Steemit from what I have personally observed, and what other people keep telling me. We are active for the most part all around the clock. Our residents span from Australia right over to California; so our timezones cover a massive 21 hours!
Come in and say hi -- we don't bite :)
Where do you fit into the City of Neoxian?
A lot of people come here and get sucked into the friendliness of our server. Some people want to take on roles in the city, others just want to chat and have a good time. There's nothing wrong with either!
What we haven't seen many of though is those wanting to create new roles and responsibilities for themselves in Neoxian City. Our Dragonmaster Neoxian is always open to new ideas.
Do you have a special talent? Let us see! Come in and see if you can do something for us -- we encourage growth here. What benefits us, also benefits you.
We have already started a School, A minetest server, A banking service, games, and so much more.
What can you bring to us?
Our curators regularly scour the whole of Neoxian to find the best and sometimes most undervalued work to send into planetary orbit with our humungous weighted curation trail. If you observe our tribe we have one of the best trending pages and that is because our administration team weight the trail down with their HUGE votes.
These are our picks:
Please note: We only support original content here.We will exact vengeance with extreme prejudice on plagiarists and spammers. So we want to see you unleash that creativity of yours. When you create you get better at what you do. When you plagiarise it is a wasted effort, and we don't like wastefulness or laziness here.
We also take our tags seriously. So please try and use the relevant tags as we will only vote on those with them. We won't be voting a picture of your cat with SPT for example. SPT is for Steemonsters.
Our best picks of the week will be featured on our weekly newspaper highlights.
