Steemit Update [ March 18th, 2022 ] : Community Curators for April - Applications Open


The Community Curators have now been running for two months.

It is has been very interesting to watch the teams in action.

There have been one or two issues but much has been learnt along the way and we are now ready to recruit new teams for April.

One of the main problems has been lack of quality content in certain subject areas, as well as other areas not being covered by the curation themes. We have therefore made some changes to the themes this month.

We look forward to reading the applications. Existing teams and existing team members are welcome to apply again.



The Community Curator Teams for April

We are looking for the Curator Accounts to be managed by teams of up to 7 people.

Within each team we would like to see a diversity of nationality and language.

The themes for the teams for April are…

  • Arts - art, crafts, photography, music, poetry, creative writing…
  • Finance & Technology - finance, business, crypto, science, technology, computing…
  • Lifestyle - health, fitness, sport, leisure, food, travel…
  • My Life - the Diary Game, My Town in Ten Pics, acts of kindness, charity…
  • Steem Growth - Steem promotion, marketing, development, contests…

Curation teams can be made of people that are already involved in running existing communities, as well as people who are not.

Teams should not include more than one Country Representative from the same country. They should also not include more than one person from the management team (Founder, Admin, Moderator) of any single community.

Every member of a Curation Team must be committed to at least #club5050, and ideally #club75 or #club100. Preference will be given to teams with most members doing #club75 or #club100.



How to Apply as a Curation Team

Prospective Curation Teams should appoint a Team Leader who should make a post including…

  • Which of the five themes above they would like to curate for.
  • Details of the team members (nationality, languages, Steem history, #club status).
  • Why they would make a good curation team.
  • Anything special about how they will do their curation to ensure the widest reach.
  • How they will ensure they will not vote for any posts with plagiarised content.

Keep posts brief and easy to follow. Include the tag #curatorteamapplication in the first four tags.

Applications can be made in any language.

Posts should be submitted by 11.59pm UTC, on Monday, March 28th, 2022.



How will Curation Teams be rewarded

Every day the teams will be allowed to allocate one full vote to a member’s post - ideally in rotation.

In total therefore no more than 10% of the account’s voting power should be used on team members each week.

Additionally each week one member should post a report for the team in the Steem POD community with a list of their top 7 posts, with a brief note of why each post was chosen.

These posts should set beneficiaries to share the rewards with other members of the team.

The posts will be voted by @steemcurator01.



And finally…

While these are guidelines, rather than hard rules, we are hoping the Curation Teams will favor posts that are #steemexclusive and following at least #club5050.

Plagiarism of any kind will of course not be tolerated.

The plan is to rotate the Curation Teams every month. Although some teams who are performing particularly well may be invited to continue the following month.

To give more impact to the Community Curator program, the Steem Power on the @steemcurator accounts has been increased from 250,000 SP to 500,000 SP.



Thank you to the first round of Community Curation teams. You are all welcome to apply again for April with the same or a different mix of team members.

We hope many other people will also be inspired to join teams to apply for this great opportunity to help grow the platform.

The winning Curation Teams will be announced by the end of the month, with a view to starting at the beginning of April.

The Steemit Team
