Our mission at Steem Onboarding is to educate and encourage those coming onto the platform. To this end, we are incredibly excited to announce a new partnership with @sndbox! We will be hosting a weekly contest with them called Welcome Wednesdays where more experienced Steemians will have an opportunity to nominate a promising new user's Introduce Yourself post.

If selected, both the welcomer and the new user will be rewarded with @sndbox votes. It is our hope that this weekly contest will encourage current Steemians to spend more time curating and welcoming new users - and that these new users will gain additional exposure on their content.



Discover a Newb - Let’s face it, right now the blockchain is a tough place to be discovered and find your way. There’s a lot of empowering resources here to learn about, but it’s difficult to keep track of who knows what, when and where. With this ongoing contest we’re asking experienced Steemians (or "Welcomers") to introduce newbies in the comment section, below. Here’s how to play:

  • Welcomers must have a reputation of 50+ or higher.
  • Write a short (3-5 sentence) introduction about a newbie you’ve discovered [rep of 49 or lower] in the comment section, below.
  • Share a link to a recent “hello” or #introduceyourself style post by that same newcomer (this newbie link must have been published within the last 6 days). Please include it along with your short introduction.

Each week, the contest will be open for 24 hours and the three winner's be selected and announced the following day.


Upvote Rewards

Steem Onboarding in conjunction with the Sndbox curation team will browse the comment section of this post looking for inspiring and thoughtful favorites. We’ll reward both the welcomer (commenter) and the newcomer (their "hello" post). Find someone new and say hello in the comment section, below.

  • First Place = 75% x 2 @sndbox upvotes
  • Second Place = 50% x 2
  • Third Place = 25% x 2


This Weeks Winners

It is our hope that this initiative will not only help to encourage more experienced Steemians to welcome new comers - but that these promising new users will get an exciting boost early in their journey to help encourage their retention and engagement. It is also our hope that the community stops by to say a warm welcome to these new faces in our community. If you are able to - please stop by to leave a vote or a comment for this week's winners!

Thanks @steemitqa! We are very excited about this new partnership with @sndbox and are so grateful for their generosity with offering upvotes as prizes.

@simplysteemian is such a smart young mother, with enviable youthful exuberance. I appreciate the fact that she put so much thought into her choice of username and her reason is awesome. I will keep up with her via @ginabot on discord because I like the way she has structured her future posts, it will be fun and engaging, you may want to check out her full introduction post here.
