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 July.
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 July
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 July are…
Arts - art, crafts, photography, music, poetry, creative writing…
Finance & Technology - finance, business, crypto, science, technology, computing…
Lifestyle - health, fitness, sport, leisure, food, travel, pets…
My Life - the Diary Game, My Town in Ten Pics, acts of kindness, charity…
Steem Growth - Steem promotion, marketing, development, contests…
Learn with Steem - courses, tutorials, lessons...
Curation teams can be made up 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 11.59 pm UTC, on Tuesday, June 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 July 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.
There have previously been complaints that the Community Curation teams are not changing each month. This is commonly because there are not enough applications coming in. For June, for example, there were only two of the themes that had more than one application. The other themes each only had applications from the existing teams.
Don’t complain - make a team !
The winning Curation Teams will be announced by the end of the month, with a view to starting at the beginning of July.
