On curation -- My Preferences as a bigwaves community curator.

Hey Steemit, it's @pangoli here again and I bring good tidings from the Bigwaves community organized by @fisteganos, @ehiboss, @ogoowinner, and @destinysaid

With effect from Tomorrow being the first day of June 2018, the Bigwaves community curation would commence and we are excited about the bloggers who take out the time to put up quality contents out there. Rest assured, the bigwaves community has got you covered, as we have a team of curators constantly on the prowl to seek those amazing articles.

There are a couple of ground rules that are already set in place to coordinate how curation would be carried out. Hence, this post would serve as a guide for everyone who would be curated using the bigwaves account, as well as spell out my preferences as a curator.

  • Every post that would be curated by the @bigwaves account must have the bigwaves AND the nigeria tags. This is to make it easier for curators to find your posts easily. Hence, it would be appreciated if you use both tags. Also, there might be consequences for spamming the bigwaves tag with articles you are sure aren't up to par. If you wrote it really well, and you think it would scale, feel free to use the bigwaves tag in addition to the nigeria tag.

  • Curators are to look out for Plagiarism in posts that are considered for submission. Hence, articles conjured using Google Translate or word spinners will not be curated.

  • Articles are judged for quality based on a number of staples such as content, articulation, proper references to images and texts, and length. While there aren't any strict codes as to which rule is preferred over which, the presence of some or all of the above would pull you up the pecking order.

Our curators are unique individuals, and might have preferences as regards which posts they deem quality or interesting. Below are my preferences:

  • Education and parenting
  • Science and technology.
  • Health and Fitness
  • Books and literature.

  • I shall not curate articles that are below 300 words. Nothing too personal, really.

  • I shall not curate religious-based articles, especially the types that are skewed in favour of one religion over the other. To avoid controversies as to which religious post is "too religious" or not, i will be skipping them altogether.

  • Story contests that are within predefined word limits are okay with me. As long as it meets the aforementioned criteria, it may be curated.

  • I shall not curate political articles that seek to incite violence or rancour amongst a community.

  • I shall not curate Steemit-based articles such as meetups, hangouts, etc. There are several other curators on the lookout for that already.

  • Blockchain and Crypto-related articles that seek to teach or educate the users on new ideas or tutorials may be curated. Crypto-related articles that simply share the news or whip out a few lines and patterns will be ignored.

Rest assured, these are solely my Preferences, and I take full responsibility for every quote. Of course, this doesn't mean that your posts would be ignored if you belong to a different Niche other than the ones I mentioned. Not at all. Some other curator might enjoy what I skipped. So chin up, and don't give up hope.

For starts, how about I invite you to the discord server?

Congrats bro. Good to see u being selected. Can people living outside Nigeria be a part of bigwave community?


That would be no, for now. I'll let you know when we open the floodgates for all and sundry. We could use a bit more explosives.

Thanks for being here bro.
