100 DAYS OF STEEM : Day 8 - Friday Roundup & Friday Follows
We are now one week into the 100 Days of Steem project so it will be a good time to do a roundup of what has happened in the first seven days.
As a starting point we must say we are very happy with the response so far.
We see this project as the beginning of a new phase in the development of Steem.
This project is all about working with the community, engaging with the community, getting ideas from the community, and rewarding the community.
We won’t have the resources to put into practice all the good ideas that people come up with - certainly not during this 100 day project. But this is just the first stage in a new era for Steem.
Stick with us. There are another 92 days to go...
We’ve been finding our feet this week, but are delighted with the interaction and feedback on what has been started already…
The Community Curators Project
There have been over 30 applications so far from people and projects that would like to become Community Curators. Thank you to everyone that has applied already. We are still taking applications until 21 April, and then the first batch of Community Curators will be selected to start on 1 May.
As well as the initial English language post...
We have started our multilingual versions in Spanish and Korean...
And a big thank you to @muscara who has kindly been translating all the 100 Days posts into German…
The Weekly Content Challenge
We launched our first Weekly Content Challenge on the theme ‘Memories of My School Days’. There have been 25 entries so far. The challenge runs until Sunday so there is still time to enter.
The View From My Window Photography Challenge
To cater for those who prefer taking photographs rather than writing we also put out a photography challenge on the theme ‘The View From My Window’. We are delighted that there have been nearly 40 entries so far. This challenge will be running until Monday so there are still three days to enter.
Steemit, Inc. has given APPICS a 1 M Steem Power delegation to help them set up instant accounts for their coming marketing campaigns and to reward users.
We announced this on Day 6:
APPICS gives more information in their post, which also mentions Zac Efron!
Steemit, Inc. has now set up the @steemcurator01 account with 1 M Steem Power to reward participants in the various challenges being run as part of the 100 Days project.
The account will also be looking out for other good content and helpful contributions to Steem.
When the Community Curators project gets going in May, @steemcurator01 will be rewarding the curators for their work.
The 100 Days project is not just about what we’ve done, it is also about what members of the Steem community are doing.
So each Friday we would like to mention five people or projects that we have spotted doing good things during the past week.
Please do visit their blogs and give them a follow.
First up @muscara - thank you for translating all the 100 Days of Steem posts into German.
For anyone wanting to improve the formatting of their Steem posts check out this post by @cmp2020 :
While you are visiting @cmp2020’s blog take a look at his latest post ‘Where do we take STEEM from here?’. He has included some thoughts from his father @remlaps and from @whatsup and is inviting discussion...
Long time Steemian @xpilar raises the issue of commenting on posts. Is it important? Do we do enough?
In these troubled times of Covid-19 @team-mexico is raising funds to help people in Venezuela affected by the pandemic.
The Steem Community Hub mentioned on Day 1 is still being worked on but there are a few other elements that need to fall into place before it is launched. More news on that soon.
In the meantime have a great weekend and stay tuned for the next 92 Days of Steem.
The Steemit Team
