Today is the final day of Season 2 of The Diary Game.
We are still voting on as many posts as possible.
If you haven't been voted by @steemcurator01 do not despair (or complain!), we will do our best to visit everyone. And if you have continued posting your diaries you will receive a nice 'catch-up' vote when @steemcurator01 arrives.
It seems most people have enjoyed the game as we are commonly asked when Season 3 will be starting?
Season 3 - The NeverEnding Season
We are happy to announce that Season 3 begins tomorrow!
As so many people enjoy writing their daily Diary Game posts, and as it has proved such a good starting point for newcomers to Steem, we have decided that The Diary Game will become a permanent feature.
There will though be some changes.
The Diary Game will become part of the 'A Better Life With Steem' project that we announced a couple of days ago.
Posts can still be in any language. The rules about the minimum number of words (300) and the maximum number of images (8) will now be optional guidelines rather than obligatory rules.
You can write diary posts daily or occasionally as you want.
We will still be voting on many Diary Game posts but much of the curation will be handed over to Diary Game Curators who will be part of the Better Life Curation team that will be formed over the coming weeks.
There is more information on the Better Life post but if you are interested in becoming a Diary Game Curator you can just start making your sample Diary Game curation digests including any diary posts dated from September 26th.
You can chose to curate Diary Game posts from around the world, or you can specialize in a particular country or language.
We are not sure yet how many Diary Game Curators will be needed as it will depend on how many people keep making Diary Game posts, but as we spot good curators they will be invited to join the Better Life Curation Team.
Members of the Better Life Curation Team will get all their curation digest posts voted on by @steemcurator01 or @steemcurator02, and the posts they select in their curation digests will also generally receive votes.
We hope many people will want to continue writing their daily diaries.
The Diary Game posts have allowed us to learn so much, and to connect with so many people's lives around the world.
We hope the connections will continue, and grow stronger.
There is so much more to come.
