For PH community members only: few words about our curation trail
Allow me to start with small disclaimer:
This post is targetted towards a very specific audience: Project.hope community members.
So if you are reading this, then it most likely means that I've shared a link to this post with you and in that case I would like to ask you to spare 5-10 minutes of your time. Especially since going through this post may bring you some benefits in the future.
Main goal of this publication is to answer a few common questions
about our PH curation trail. Questions which I've received recently from different members of our community.
Few words about our @ph-fund CURATION TRAIL
Most of you are already fully aware of our curation trail, which I've been managing for quite some time now (you can find links at the bottom of this post). Some of you are also aware, that I've managed to reach out to TheRising and this user decided to support our community efforts by following our curation trail with 100% voting power. Which is mindblowing, since he has approx 450k Steem Power (and Hive Power).
That itself is allowing our community to grow much faster and also allows me to reward content posted by SELECTED MEMBERS with really solid upvotes.
It is important to understand at this point that curation trails have been designed to PRIMARLY support our project.hope CORE TEAM as well as several users, who are the most engaging and supportive towards others within this community.
COMMON QUESTION NUMBER 1
Basically, the number 1 common question I've received since TheRising joined our curation trail is: - what am I doing wrong? how can I receive upvote from the curation trail?
And I will try to answer this particular question. Which isn't easy. After all I don't want to make anyone feel unappreciated.
So, I found it important to clarify why some users enjoy more of this additional support ....
WHO IS ELIGIBLE for PH curation trail upvotes?
There are no strict "rules" and I'm taking several factors into consideration:
Some members have been with Project.Hope since the very beginning and they invested a huge amount of time and energy to help our community get where we are today. Naturally I will prioritize them over new/fresh members.
Some users are simply very active and engaging in comments; investing their own time into consuming content published within PH. Bringing extra value into our community.
And finally, some of us are simply part of theproject.hope CORE TEAM - and as such they are my main target of support.
Overall, there are many factors which I'm taking into consideration.
IMPORTANT - NO POWER DOWN policy
I would like to see our community GROWING on both chains. Therfore, there is one common "RULE" that all those who are receiving that support WILL BE REQUIRED TO FOLLOW in the near future:
And this rule could be summarized as: STRICT NO POWER DOWN policy.
Why? - you may ask.
I need you all to understand that I'm investing a tremendous amout of time and energy into building the PH community. Attracting more delegations and expanding curation trail = directing a large part of inflation into our community. And as you all may imagine - I need to think long-term.
It will not serve any purpose to see most of received rewards being dumped on the market. Not only will it create additional selling pressure, but in the long term it doesn't help our PH community get any bigger and stronger either.
After all - I want to ensure, that our community will build some "Dolphins" and "ORCAS". I also would love you all to build some savings, instead of selling all received STEEM/HIVE tokens as soon as it is possible.
I do fully understand that
some members need to cash out part of their profits to cover life expenses. I really do. However, I also strongly believe, that liquid steem/hive should be enough to cover those needs. Especially if you're receiving solid upvotes from our curation trail (including TheRising).
Hope I am making sense?
WHAT CAN I DO TO receive PH curation trail upvotes?
To wrap it up:
if you consider yourself active and engaging within PH community, you're okey with NO POWERDOWN POLICY, you've been part of our community for at least several weeks and you would like me to consider supporting your content with PH curation trail upvotes, then message me via Discord.
We can discuss this topic - and I will see what I can do (and also I will explain more details) .
