#thealliance Is

...one big happy family, and it is our duty to uphold our standard as quality curators and creators. Keeping that in mind as you read the rest of this, do remember that it is the engagement that makes us great and thrive as a community. Don't know who your family members are? This profile follows **ONLY** our members and the support accounts. Our strength is only as powerful as the community in its combined efforts to support each other. We're doing amazing everyone, let's stay focused! Huge shout out to those that are helping us grow faster by delegating SP or contributing some of their hard earned SBD/STEEM to @thealliance or any of our other support accounts. You know who you are :)

Special Thanks

I would like to, and encourage you to as well, personally give a special thanks to our support accounts that have been helping our fantastic allies grow along with us. Aside from @thealliance, we have: Killer Whale - @killerwhale (trained by @enginewitty), Share The Steem Love - @stsl (ran by @bmj), Tye Dye Firepower - @tyedyefirepower (ran by @armshippie) and The Mother Ship - @themothership (ran by @michaeldavid). Why? Because they don't have to go the extra mile to support any of you. They CHOOSE to and as such, should be given at least a pat on the back and thank you. So from #thealliance, I say, thank you for being supportive of our family, we really appreciate it!

How Do I Join??

The first and best thing you can do is *READ THIS POST*. That way, you will find out who we are and what we represent. From there, you need to head to The Admissions Office. There, you will be greeted and asked to submit an application. It is currently headed up by several officers. Long time veteran @edthecanadian, 'take no prisoners' officer @battleaxe and the 'Latino Tandem', @sol25 & @leyargoz. We also have several other Spanish speaking advisers across the 'Schoolyard' including @oscarps, @txatxy, @oizaguirres, @mrstrange & @crisangel. We want to make sure no one feels left out and is comfortable, regardless of their native tongue.

The sole purpose of the office is for applications. This is **THE ONLY** way anyone can become a member of #thealliance now. This is the front door. This is the 'Sorting Hat'. This is the only point of entry. The officers there will review your profile and application to decide whether or not you are alliance material. Some (unfortunately) will have to be turned away. Some will have potential and need to become 'students', if they so choose. Others will be sent directly to 'the playground'.

Wait, I Have to go to 'Class'?

So maybe you haven't been rejected, and maybe you weren't told to go to 'recess' with the other 'kids'. You may have been sent to 'The Classroom'. Here, we train you become a quality content producer and help with gaining experience on Steemit so that we feel comfortable the rest of our family would engage with you. Along with the Spanish team/'Latino Tandem', this server is being run by another officer and some handpicked 'teachers'. Headmistress @topkpop has the most experience and a critical eye for quality. She will be assisted by long time member @avesa and rising stars @katrina-ariel and @ameliabartlett. I am confident they'll do a fine job tweeking our students before sending them to 'the playground'.

Well, What's the 'Playground'?

When you are sent to 'recess', it means you have the quality we desire. Remember, not only are we a family of quality content creators, but, **CURATORS** as well. This is where we find out if you are going to be grafting yourselves to the family tree or if you just intend on swinging around on our branches. The 'playground' is under the watchful eyes of some of the most engaging members and officers we have in #thealliance.

The thoughtful @tattoodjay is teamed up with the sweet social butterfly @saffisara . On top of the Spanish team, we're also bringing in some hot @c0ff33a to help keep our eyes open and on the 'kids' during recess. They will be attentive to the support and engagement you 'kids' are out there offering. Here, you will also be exposed to The 'House Rules' and it is expected you show them your courtesy. The point is to mold and meld you to blend into our family atmosphere so you are easily welcomed by the rest of our 'society'.

*****Special Notice*****

Just because someone is accepted as a member or is a member now, does not necessarily mean they will forever remain a member. That is solely the choice of the ally to maintain the required participation level within the family. Members' content and engagement are checked periodically by the Quality Control Officers. The Juyo will also check to see the amount of support given to your family. If it is believed to be too low and an individual is lacking the desired family unity, then it is grounds for removal and MOST will be asked about your intentions. Notification will depend on the level of commitment you had shown PRIOR to getting put on the chopping block. Some may start strong and trickle off, some may not even graft themselves to the family tree at all. If you are or have been removed, feel free to re-apply at any time. All new and re-applying members are subject to the same application process, regardless of your STEEM Power or Reputation, and will be reviewed by the Application Board.

Pow-wow Saturday 10 a.m. & 10 p.m.

Friendly reminder that this Saturday, will be our weekly 'pow-wow'. We will try two times, 10 a.m. and 10 p.m. EST this time and see if we can get more people on. The purpose is to familiarize yourself more with your fellow allies and go over any changes or suggestions people may have. We're a family, and want you all to participate in the growth and steady flow of Allied activity and really just get to know each other. See you there!

The Featured Member

As the vast majority of you all are well aware of, @thealliance runs a 'Featured Member' series as part of our curation agenda. This is to honor and highlight particular members of #thealliance that have been putting in the time to support other members and have been consistent in their work and engagement on Steemit. This week, our terrific member is @moeknows, do stop in and show him the respect he has earned and deserves!

Eyes On

#thealliance tag is very useful to keep track of allied posts and give credit where credit is due. I'm sure there are some great posts from our family that didn't use our tag, but since this is @thealliance... These next few posts were chosen based on the value they have provided to Steemit users in reference to the platform as a whole. Thank you for writing them!

We have a good handful of poets in our family's wings, so spotlighting them in their own section only seems like an agreeable option. Please enjoy the various forms of poetry like sonnets, haikus, free-verse poems and just beautiful reflections of the heart, mind and soul portrayed by the written word.

I purposely DID NOT put pictures of all these fabulous foods because it was making me hungry going through them as it was! I also urge the people that do these kinds of posts to enter @progressivechef's contest, STEEMIT IRON CHEF 2018 Act 01 Round 08. This delicious section is 'for the foodies'.

We love getting behind this initiative and currently, one of our officers, has two posts running that are going to be giving to YAH. Major props to @battleaxe for taking the time to help out this fabulous charity. If you haven't done your part, get over there and drop a good vote on these!
Staying the CourseTrending Be Decent!

Tag! You're It!

So, we have come up with a new game of tag to implement more engagement and some more fun for the platform. Almost like hide and seek! There is no special 'tag' or 'category'. The winner will get a vote purchased from @sneaky-ninja by @enginewitty for their most recent post. If @sneaky-ninja has already visited, another upvote bot will be chosen. The winner this past week is NOBODY! @baby07 never tagged anyone as it.
  • Each week, this post decides who is 'IT' first for the week.
  • You may ONLY tag other family members within #thealliance.
  • If you are tagged, you must write a post - not about the game.
  • In the post somewhere, you must tag someone else.
  • You cannot tag the person who tagged you.
  • The last person to TAG SOMEONE will win that week.
  • Wash, Rinse, Repeat...sound fun? Hey @coachjj, you're it!

Thank You!

Thank you for taking the time to read this (those that actually did). I also strongly recommend people visit the articles and profiles mentioned here to see about and support your family. Any questions anyone may have about anything or contests you want to promote, feel free to post those in the comments as well.

Quick Note

For those that are not aware, @thelliance has a curation trail set up now on Steem Auto. If you would like to support all your family members, AND I MEAN ALL, feel free to head over there and hop on the trail. Remember I said all, so adjust your voting power accordingly if you choose to tag along. We are currently ranked #55 with 41 trailers.

Making sure we're all on the same page! Remember...

just keep swimming...just keep swimming...

Thank you @thealliance. I want to make that Pow Wow on 10PM. One thing it is Spring break here in South Texas. So could be swamped in road trips, sleep overs etc.. with the youngins and their friends and cousins. And what not

Anyway, things are really looking good with this Family. And proud to be here :)

Thank you Ninja for the Nod and thank you #thealliance for being awesome

awesome update as aways :) x

I'm honored to be mentioned. I'm grateful to be on this group. It was worth the wait!


ย  ยท ย 3๋…„ ์ „

This is a very useful post, I had seen the alliance tag around, and some of the banners, and posts around steemit, but I didn't really know what the alliance was.

This post taught a lot about the group, and how you all functions. I looked at the blogs of some of your veterans and teachers, I also looked at a few of the applications from your discord channel. I am not sure I am on the level to be a member of your family, still I will be putting together an application and see what you folks have to say.

Thanks for making a community building group, and putting in the effort to create common unity here on steemit.

ย  ยท ย 3๋…„ ์ „

Just joined. I'll check out steemauto after I get some more SP. (How often does the curation trail vote right now, approximately? 25 time a day, 50 times a day?)

I see some rather good photography from members.

I'll be posting daily again starting in the next two days.
