100 DAYS OF STEEM : Day 3 – The Community Curators Project

in #steemit6 months ago (edited)

A bit of a bumpy start, but we’re back for Day 3 of the 100 Days of Steem initiative.

Today we are launching the Community Curators Project...

Under this project we are setting up a range of community curation accounts that will be used for rewarding good content across the whole of Steem.

These accounts aren’t just for the Steemit, Inc. team to be going out and curating, they are for the community to use.

We are inviting applications from anyone on Steem who would like to be a Community Curator.

They are primarily aimed at people involved in running Communities whether through the new Steem Communities feature or more informally through Discord servers, for example.

We will also be interested to hear from individuals who are not attached to communities, but would like to curate in a particular subject area that they have an interest or expertise in, for example education, or music, or technology.

The curation accounts will be allocated for one month at a time.


How to apply

If you would like to be considered as a Community Curator please make a post giving details of…

  • The Community or subject areas you would like to curate
  • Your experience and background on Steem
  • Any languages you are fluent in
  • Why you think you would make a good curator

Please post a link to your application post in the comments below.

Applications should be made by the 21st of each month. Those selected will be given the posting key to the curation account on the 1st of each month to use until the end of that month.


We are starting with four accounts each charged with 250,000 Steem Power.

If the project goes well, we will be adding additional accounts, some with higher levels of Steem Power.

There will also be a larger coordinating account with 1 million SP for both curating and for rewarding the community curators for good curation performance.

The Community Curators will be closely monitored for any abuse of the curation account. The account access can be removed at any time if the curators are not using them appropriately.


We do hope many communities and individuals will want to take part in this project..

By recruiting curators from across the whole of Steem we hope the benefits can be shared across all language groups and all communities.

We look forward to receiving your applications.

Steem on,
The Steemit Team

Sort:  

I am the founder of a curator account that rewards contributions from the German speaking community. We have a human curator team that rotates every 5 days.

We would like to apply. With higher votes you can bind members to Steem and also win new ones. This should not be temporary but a permanent institution, especially the different country communities are the walls in the social media area of Steem. It is in all our interests to build the walls as strong as possible

It would please our community if they would allow us to delegate.

Good Luck 🍀

I support this application.

The steem-boodcamp is doing a great job in the past years for the community.

Upvote!

Their account is indeed doing well within the german community! Good luck with the apllication! :)

Hello @greece-lover and all members of the curatorial team.
I think it's a very good idea to participate in this project, even if it would only be for the German community here on Steemit.

After all, we've done more than 1 1/2 years of work for the community without getting anything in return.
We have taken "all" german steeminas into account, including those who are not or have not been in the discord with us.
I think you can say we are fair in our work for the german community and do a good job.
Except for one case, I personally don't know anybody who didn't want to get any votes from us, the others seemed to be satisfied, and that's the main thing.

So let's hope together that Justin and his team will give us a chance, our delegates would be happy as well, it shows that their commitment and that of the curators has been worth it.

with sunny greetings from Andalusia
Don Thomas (Member of the curating team from @steem-bootcamp)

We are the hottest group of curators under the steemit sun ---- Steem on ---- "GSB"

@mima2606 thinks you have earned a vote of @investinthefutur !----> Who is investinthefutur ?

Thank you for your Community Curator application.

More news coming soon.

The Steemit Team

Here I have also as a small Steemian the chance to get an upvote. Others vote automatically, this curator visits the entry and evaluates it by quality and not by the expected curation reward. The gained steempower, which is generated by the curator, regularly increases the upvotes to be awarded. So I can't see any intention of profit in this curator. It is a pure community project which is unparalleled.
Thank you for your very good work!!

I am pleased that you will also find time to read and comment here. I would be delighted if we had the opportunity to speak directly to the people responsible at Steemit inc. Let's gather ideas from the country communities, talk about them and then implement them. This is how we make Steem something special !

And I like your sense of humor :)

Sorry, that is a fake account - not Justin Sun's real account.

Justin's real account is @justinsunsteemit

Proposal

  1. My curation target group is all quality posts, users from all over the world, not only one country and one language
  2. Each post will be voted with a discord explanation and participation- where all Steem users have option to apply and have option vote - the authors from all continents will have chance to receive equal support.
  3. I will never use a vote for my post.
  4. In the first place, quality bloggers, those who are in social disadvantage and active plus creative , they would be my priority
  5. A team of users and leaders with blogging experience will be organized to evaluate the quality and give their opinions and notes live on Discord Live Channel every day.
  6. We will be open to all ideas and proposals in line with the development of Steem blockchain.
  7. I will support all those who have creative applications that can be developed on the Steem blockchain.
  8. We will organize promotions and challenges together with award-winning users to attract new users to the Steem platform.

Thank you for this opportunity

I am confident that you would be a very good choice!

Hi @Travelfeed

Good to receive a Community Curator application from you.

Look out for more news on that soon.

And congratulations on the launch of TravelFeed 3.0.

The Steemit Team

So the big plan is hand out roughly $135 per day, then keeping half of that as your own personal curation reward? You want four people to go around and do some work for you so you can earn about $2000 per month? Meanwhile each content creator who receives this social assistance support might get about $3(before deductions) per full power 250000 SP vote, but probably less per post since full voting power usage isn't always wise.

Will the four curators be encouraged to pile on in order to maximize your curation rewards? Will you be allowing curators to automate and vote blindly?

I see you'll somehow reward these four curators with an account charged up with another million SP. So if 4 curators write a boring automated 'curation post' and you use that coordinating account to upvote those curator posts, that's even more money in your pocket. Could be another 2k in a good month, at current rates, provided you have enough boring automated curation posts to vote on. Will these curators be self voting their own work as well?

And if it goes well you'll add more accounts? So you can earn even more money? And these content creators are supposed to just sit around waiting for this handout? Selling their handout constantly. No new money coming in the door... ?

Will these curators be allowed to downvote or will you simply nuke the accounts of those deemed unfit for society by the central authority?

How much money do you plan to make with this program? Will you be selling those curation rewards? Will this only lead to selling pressure, effectively diminishing the value of the token rewarded to the content producer over time, while you line your pockets with glorious greed?

"Will the four curators be encouraged to pile on in order to maximize your curation rewards?"
"Will you be allowing curators to automate and vote blindly?"
"So if 4 curators write a boring automated 'curation post' and you use that coordinating account to upvote those curator posts,.."

"And these content creators are supposed to just sit around waiting for this handout? Selling their handout constantly. No new money coming in the door... ?"
"Will these curators be allowed to downvote or will you simply nuke the accounts of those deemed unfit for society by the central authority?"

Hi @nonameslefttouse These are great points for steemian to ensure the delegation/account for curations not being abused and also the curators not being abused too. Thank you for your concerns and ideas to make steem blockchain better for everyone.

These potential curators and those content producers who might "benefit" should be negotiating right now for a better deal. Not jumping with excitement the moment this organization with a shady, sadistic, and disgusting reputation begins dangling a dollar bill in front of their faces.

Those great content creators that never received upvote for their contents would be grateful with even 3USD upvote worth as you estimated. Agree with you potential curators and content producers should negotiate for a better deal in near future too.

Meanwhile that's only one curator who may or may not have even enjoyed the work presented to them. If they're just handing out money to make people feel good, all that becomes is superficial nonsense. Participation awards are a ridiculous concept. Eventually these folks become dependent on that handout. What happens when it's gone? These folks only working for money NOW and not a future will not be powering up and will not be able to support each other. I've see this happen countless times. But whatever. I got told to leave again. You guys can have this mess. Figure it out yourselves.

Meanwhile that's only one curator who may or may not have even enjoyed the work presented to them.

yes, this one curator might see art post is better than this one post about fiction story or post about philosophy. The curators should have wide/vast interest on every post category. Curators based on the category that interests them.

These folks only working for money NOW and not a future will not be powering up and will not be able to support each other.

We should encourage them content creators to power up some of their rewards earning too because of this.

I appreciate your feedback and concerns, thank you. Please feel free to contribute your ideas and experiences so we can try to propose the suggestion to those in the power of making the decision.

Please feel free to contribute your ideas and experiences

No offense to you. You seem really nice, and I like you, but this place, it's not for me. Where I go is where my thoughts will be.

Good luck here. I wish you all the best.

@nonameslefttouse I'm glad we crossed path here. Wish you well and good fortune 💜

You and I both know that you don't like this idea because it is being done by Steemit Inc. If the Hive stakeholders made the same offer, you'd be bending over backwards in support for them.

Anyway, weren't you leaving like 2 weeks ago? Why the obsession with Steem? Go to Hive where the future is bright! Go on! #HiveIsAlive

You do not have the right to put words in my mouth and thoughts in my head. Where did I say I didn't like the idea? I'll tell you right now it's a dumb idea, but not because it's coming from Steemit, it's because it's designed to appeal to someone like you, who might not realize you're getting fucked over. You should be asking for a better deal, not taking it up the ass. If I saw Hive doing this, that would be a shit deal as well. You can't offer a deal wearing one shirt and expect it to be a better deal if you put on a different shirt. Pull your head out of your ass. Work harder on being a Yes Man because you suck at it. And don't tell me where to go because that just opens the door for me to tell you to go fuck yourself.

You are one of the most disrespectful humans I've ever come across on this platform and you whine way too much.

P.S. When a power tripping psychopath and a pack of vindictive sycophants begin threatening to seize the money you spent nearly four years working your ass off to earn and even if its's only worth peanuts now because the potential of a platform like this has been squandered and pissed upon since its inception, you will take notice and want to see just what the fuck is going on. That's why I'm here. To make damn sure you fuckers don't fuck me over. I honestly thought you'd all be too busy fucking yourselves to even notice my presence.

Thanks for your support. But I have a lawyer already.

97 days left!

Regardless of the rest of it, that's not how curation rewards work.

Explain how curation rewards work to me. They own the accounts, those accounts will have curators at the helm, but the curator does not own the account. What happens to the curation rewards? The numbers were rough estimates. What am I missing, @whatsup?

If you delegate to me, and I curate... I receive the curation rewards... not you.

If they were delegating, then yes, I know that, because I'm aware of how curation rewards work. They're not delegating. Read the post again. The curator is given the posting key to the account that doesn't belong to them. NoNamesLeftToUse  Read Between the Lines.png

Those selected will be given the posting key to the curation account on the 1st of each month to use until the end of that month.

Thanks for reminding me! LOL!

...and this answer is the difference that counts, the difference between idiots children, and adults, in the room.
The kindergarten doth overflow...

Which brings up a good point. Why wouldn't they just delegate. Also,why only 4?

Exactly. If this is happening, they should be asking for a delegation and nothing else. Every other curator gets curation rewards so why make things more difficult than they need to be...

Eh, you might think there is the evil plan to enrich themselves. BUT, consider this: from what we've seen the Justin crew do on Steem so far is so dumb, they might not even know about the delegation option.

The plan is that you stop powerdown and delegate to downvoting bots instead of dumping your STEEM to exchanges

This isn't my mess to clean up.

No, it's not. Downvote services could start upvoting shitposts if they have any SP left and let this dumpster fire light the way from the blue vape to the beesite.

I'm not interested in burning the place down. Look around. Many of these people think they're applying for a delegation. Some don't even realize this isn't a fair deal. Some don't have the sense to ask for something fair. They're burning themselves. Nothing I can do about it.

Please let them sleep.

Yes, Sir! Sorry, Sir! Please forgive me, Sir! This won't happen again, Sir! I beg of you, Sir! I was drunk, Sir! I'll start attending meetings again, Sir! Anything for you, Sir!

Steem-Guild reloaded?

Will end up like the original in corruption and abuse.

Thanks @cn-curation for all the time and effort, hope this project can keep operating in the future.

@steemitblog (@elipowell, are you also reading here? :) , I appreciate that you are trying to find ways to support creators of good content on STEEM.
However, I fear that your offer triggers (beside honest curators) many people who see the chance to earn some easy money.

I have another idea how it could be possible to spread rewards among as many users as possible: you could analyze the voting patterns of the different STEEM users, and then select (and follow the upvotes of) these ones who are not only upvoting themselves and a few friends (or the same whale accounts again and again) but instead of that reward many different small users.

A good start could be to check the "Voting CSI" in SteemWorld, a great information tool of @steemchiller. The higher the score the better the 'voting behavior' of an account (but one should take into consideration that its calculation only reflects the last seven days). You can find it here:




One of the worst CSI scores (0.0) has for example @haejin, because more than 85 % of his voting power is used to upvote himself (and in addition he upvotes his own post with his other account @ranchorelaxo):


Thank you for your idea.

We will certainly look at that as well.

I am not sure if you saw my comment on the discord server post due to all the spam. I am commenting a quote of it again here (hopefully before the spam).

Hi. I would like to be included in the discord. I have been on Steem since July 2016, and have acquired everything which I have through posting and interacting with this blockchain. I am now a senior in high school.

My father (@remlaps) and I were included in the hive blacklist for not voting the way they wanted us to in regards to witnesses (we voted for what we thought was right). I cannot speak here for him, but I wish to be involved in the rebirth of the Steem blockchain, and I wish to help prove them wrong about Steem being centralized and worthless. I want what I have always wanted: what is best for this blockchain, and the principles it was built upon to remain intact.

I am grateful that I now get a chance to be a part of what I missed out on in the early stages of the blockchain the first time around (building the community, and enhancing the chain). However, my only technical background is a class in python and computer science principles this year.

My discord name is: cmp2020#3103

I would love to be a part of the discussion if you will have me.

Hi Christopher, yes got this now.

Thank you for your offer to get involved on the Discord. More news on that shortly.
