We hope you all enjoyed another month of the Community Curators.
They have been doing a great job expanding the curation reach of the @steemcurator accounts.
Now it is time to prepare for the new month of May.
We are again inviting applications from teams who would like to take on the role of Community Curators.
Current and past teams are welcome to apply again, as are new teams who have not yet had a go as Community Curators.
The Community Curator Teams for May
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 May 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…
For May we are expanding the Community Curators with one more team.
That team will be for a new ‘Learn with Steem’ theme.
We picked up this idea from the current Steem Growth team, and we believe it is an area that can be expanded to attract new people to Steem.
Steem is an ideal platform for teaching as has been shown with the Crypto Academy.
We would like to expand this learning idea to cover a much wider range of subjects from cooking to car maintenance, from gardening to guitar playing, from painting to programming, as well as traditional subjects such as chemistry, geography and mathematics as well as languages.
It would be great to have Steem deliver high quality courses and tutorials to bring new people to the platform.
We know there are a number of teachers, trainers, professors and education professionals on Steemit so it would be good to see a Curation Team come together from these that would be able to identify the best Learn with Steem posts and help build this area.
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.
How to Apply as a Curation Team
Prospective Curation Teams should appoint a Team Leader who should make a post including…
Which of the six 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 Thursday, April 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.
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 this month’s Community Curation teams. You are all welcome to apply again for May 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 May.
