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