First of all, let us begin by saying that a flag from @noleo4u simply means that your LEO rewards are being flagged and not your STEEM/SBD/PAL/insert-token-here.
What kind of content will be flagged?
Content that has nothing to do with investing. As we said in our intro post and we’ll continue to reiterate: Steemleo is a platform for investing content, not pictures of your cat or your morning jog.
Some have expressed concerns about people posting and not being financial professionals. We are not a platform for financial professionals. We are a platform for real people to talk about investing, discuss what they do and why, etc.
If you’ve been on Steem for any period of time, then you will know that many of us tend to talk about our investments (especially in Steem), even though 99% of us are not financial advisers.
Same deal with Steemleo. You don’t need some piece of paper or ridiculous degree from a university to be able to talk about investing.
The simple fact that you are on Steem right now makes you an investor of some capacity.
Steemleo content is not just about buying/selling and talking about the specific things that you’re buying. This is a place for philosophical discussion. For ethical discussions. For discussion of fundamentals and investment ideals. Value investing and more.
The scope of what you can post on Steemleo is VERY WIDE, BUT we still don’t want to see pictures of your cat or your latest drawing.Keep that stuff on Steem/other communities because it’s awesome that you can create content that you enjoy and share it on such a cool platform.
Just don’t use the tag "steemleo" for that kind of content. If you do, you will get your LEO rewards flagged. -- your steem rewards won't be impacted, but you won't be rewarded for using a platform about investing when your content has no link to that topic.
Is Investing too niche?
We’ve seen this concern as well. Some think that there isn’t enough potential in “just investing content” on Steem. You’re right, there isn’t much potential in that statement.
The thing is, our vision for Steemleo begins with the core community of Steem, but our plans stem far beyond just the community that is here right now.
For every community that arises here on Steem, it is 100% ESSENTIAL to go beyond the community of Steem and onboard new users. If you’re not growing and onboarding new users, then you’re slowly fading away into the night.
This is essential to the health of all communities present and future. It is essential to the Steem blockchain as well. Steem has less than 15,000 active users when you cut out multiple accounts and the like.
If we want to see Steem achieve the heights that we know are possible, then we must build these communities and reach out to get NEW users. Not just market to the current ones.
So you see, Steemleo is at this beginning stage. It hasn’t even been 48 hours yet. If you think you’ve seen onboarding, you ain’t seen nothing yet. We’ve got big things in store and we’ll focus HEAVILY on bringing in brand spanking new users to this blockchain and the Steemleo community.
Thank you for joining this journey and being a part of Steemleo. We look forward to seeing your INVESTING content 😉
