WhereIN "10 Questions" No.1: Unlock the Mysteries of the Steem World

3개월 전

WechatIMG142.png

Steem has been attracting users by its “earning crypto by creating content”. Since 2016 , In the short period of 3 years, a large number of apps, tools, sites and communities have been developed based on this chain. While we are enjoying the benefits it has brought to us, we tend to overlook the people who work hard behind scenes. Because of the passion and efforts of these dedicators, Steem is getting to be known by more and more people and is showing a promising future.   

 To help new users better know Steem and CN community, WhereIN has hosted the first issue of "10 Questions".  

 Now let’s welcome our guest @ericet, the founder of team-cn、cn-curation、cn-activity、teamcn-shop and cn-voice. 

 Hopefully the following Q&A would benefit readers in further understanding Steem and CN community: 


 -------------------------------------------------Start------------------------------------------------- 

 iguazi123:Hey @ericet, say hi to everyone please! 

ericet:Hi~

iguazi123: So let’s begin!  

Q1:  I believe most of us have known @ericet very well, and he will introduce himself before our 10 questions.  

ericet:

>Hi everyone, I’m ericet and members of CN community called me “cun zhang“(Captain of team-cn). I’m just a programmer from United States.  

iguazi123:Haha, it’s a dialogue across the Pacific Ocean. Can you tell us about your hobby and how you got your nickname Village Head/Village Long (Long means Chinese dragon)?   

ericet:

>Before got into cryptocurrency/blockchain world, I used to churning (a term to take advantage of credit cards open bonus). After entered cryptocurrency/blockchain world, l spent my free time to learn many new terms and technologies. Also I like to write some bots on steem, like teamcn-shop.

>When we first started @team-cn, @aellly started call me cun zhang(village head), since in Chinese zhang(head) is the same word as the chang(long), so my nickname became “cun long”, then long in Chinese also means dragon, so at the end, my nickname became “cun dragon”. 

iguazi123:I heard that someone made a cartoon image for you. Can you show it to us?   

ericet:

>@pgr draw this picture for me then @kidsreturn added the colors.

Q2: We know that @ericet, @honoru and @softmetal started @team-cn, and ever since then it has played a vital role in helping CN newbies. Can you share the founding process of @team-cn? Are there any unforgettable moments along the way? What has been motivating you to keep on going?  

ericet:

>At first, @honoru started a new tag #cn-interview, the purpose of this tag is to interview newbies. I think it’s a great initiative, so I contacted @honoru and made a more thoughtful plan which will benefit more people. We created @team-cn mainly focus newbies. 

>On the way to help newbies, we created and supported many projects to help newbies to get better:

>* @cn-curation, a curation project within CN community, which aims to find undervalued posts daily. Selected posts are upvoted by @team-cn, @htliao, @cn-malaysia, @cnstm, @cnbuddy, @deanliu and their many trails. The authors are also rewarded with 1 SBI.

* @cn-activity, a project which aims to summarize the contests within the steem community daily. It helps many members to participate many contests.

* #teamcn-homework, assigns varies of tasks to help newbies know steem better. Those who complete these tasks every week are getting rewarded.

* @cn-voice, a project which hosts song singing/storytelling contest weekly.

* NBC(Newbie Coin), a token to reward authors who write quality posts, and members who put their efforts on the platform

* 24/7 365 days Wechat group, since discord is banned in mainland China. We use Wechat group to communicate with members and answer any question they might have.

* Many fun projects like team-cn snack shop @teamcn-shop, Newbies Graduation Ceremony, and Auto Upvote Service for Members, etc

>@team-cn is a non-profit project which mainly focus on people/community.

>There are many things touch me the most, for instance, the first team-cn drawing raccoon contest. We were all newbies that time, but we gathered over 37 SBD donations from all our members! Not STEEM keep us stay but the community. 

iguazi123:  So from the beginning, there were only 3 founders in @team-cn, and the team has been tackling popped up issues and constantly moving forward, just like some communities we know.   

ericet:

>Yes, everyone is trying to find a path moving forward. We enjoy the process of discovery. 

>Firstly, we meet all fun people from all different part of world.

Secondly, I picked up my programming interest after started my programming job. When an interest becomes a daily duty, I lost the passion. It’s steem makes me start programming again with passion. 

iguazi123:This is awesome! When I just joined the Wechat group of @team-cn, there were thousands of messages each day, and to my surprise, they were closely related to Steem users. Can you summarise in one sentence that what attracted the members to have fun in the group?   

ericet:

>As @softmetal said, come for the money, stay for the friendship. We enjoy our friendship. 

iguazi123:“Come for the money, stay for the friendship.“ That truly makes sense!   

Q3: You are an early adopter of Steem. Do you still remember what it’s like when you just joined? 

ericet:

>I’m considering my self an old steemian. I’m still a newbie with a little bit over 1 year steem experience. Maybe junior steemian is the term to describe me. 

>It’s not a right time for me to join steem. All the whales and delegations left CN community when I first joined. When I made a new post, no upvotes or comments. It’s a really boring time and I almost gave up. I think I made less than 1 steem in my first 3 months.

iguazi123:Lots of newbies have gone through this – not getting noticed at first, while turning better and better since a certain moment. Did you experience a critical point like this too? What happened then?  

ericet:

>I met @softmetal and @honoru when I almost gave up this platform. Then we started study all kind of rules about steem. 

iguazi123:Now you are accompanied along the way. Let’s give a big round of applause for the 3 musketeers!  

ericet:

>Knowing the rules help you know the community better. So I recommend newbies read the CN steem guides before they make their first posts. 

 This is a great mentality. Can you share the guide to us now? 

>I wrote my expriences for newbies: https://busy.org/@ericet/db528bhdn3

>also try to do the #teamcn-homework weekly. 

Q4: Steem is about 3 years old now. What type of community is it in your mind? How do new users better fit into the community (have more fun here)? Is there a secret weapon you want to share with us?   

ericet:

>STEEM isn't all about bloging or great contents. There are many DApps, steemit just one of them. 

>If you like gaming, try out steemmonsters,drugwars,nextcolony,cache(Soon will come to STEEM)

>If you are an artist, like to draw,sing,take photo,etc, try out ntopaz

>If you enjoy sharing food, restaurant,etc, try out tasteem

>If you share what you are feeling today, try out wherein, partiko, esteem

>If you like to travel, try out tripsteem

>There are many DApps, just try to find one that's best fit for you. 

>Also there any many simple contests that just simply giving out rewards.

>You can follow @cn-activity to know about all kind of contests. 

>Overall, STEEM is a social place where you can meet many people. It's not purely about writing great contents. 

Q5:  As a programmer, what’s your daily routine like? We are pretty curious that how come you’ve got so much time to answer questions and to find information for team-cn members.   

ericet:

>I have an easy job, just write programs and debug. My previous job is in an investment bank, great pressure there. If I keep my job, I will have no time to join STEEM. After I have a kid, I want to give my family more time, so I quitted my job and found one with less presure and closer to my house job. 

Q6: Recently SCOT and Steem-engine have done a lot for the community. What’s your opinion on it? How will it affect the community?  

ericet:

>Steem-engine makes everyone can issue their own tokens and have platform setup just few clicks. It's really great! If you are a great movie/video reviewer, you can have a platform for movie/video reviews. Artists will have a platform, singers will have a platform. It will be easier for newbies。

>But SCOT is on STEEM layer 2, so there are some issues with it. Also if in the future, steemit inc released the SMT, what's SCOT going to do with. 

>But SCOT gives some pressure to the steemit inc and make them move to a rapid development state. 

iguazi123:That’s true. It has caused some impact to Steem, like dropping a pebble into a quiet pond.   

Q7: You have been guiding us in trying out SCT these days. What’s your opinion on the very popular SCT and WeedCash? 

ericet:

>Weedcash is first ScotBot+Nitrous product, it made everyone see the possibility of build their own community and token. But the topics are about weed, so it's hard for people get into the platform. If your post is not about weed, you will be downvoted. 

>steemcoinpan(SCT)is second ScotBot+Nitrous product. The founder of SCT was pretty active on weedcash platform, he learned a lot from weedcash, both good and bad. So he knows how to keep SCT active.

>Weedcash isn't a successful product but it gives a good experience to others. 

>SCT just released a week, it's a hot trend currently. The founder needs to think about how to keep this hot trending going. It will be a good experience for all. 

iguazi123:A concise answer. Our community could learn a lot from the experience of Steemcoinpan and WeedCash. 

ericet:

>JJM is going to release it's platform soon, it's about movies/videos review. Don't miss out this opportunity. 

Q8: Since you live in the USA, can you tell us about the situation of blockchain there?  

ericet:

>Blockchain has many use cases, cryptocurrency just one of them. Recently, I've received many job interviews asking for blockchain background, and the paid is pretty good. 

>I haven't watch the crypto price a long time. My collegues and I talked a lot a year ago and now nobody dare to talk. LOL.

iguazi123: They might be more focused in technology. Let’s wish the blockchain technology better and better to eventually reach all the expectations. The next question is about WhereIN. We would like to introduce the unique model and mechanism of Steem into the Chinese communities.  

Q9: Do you have any advice for WhereIN? What’s your view on our community? 

ericet:

>Try to be on the steemit hot trend once a while. Let people know what you are doing and what is the progress with wherein development. 

>Develop wherein power as fast as possible, even it's not perfect, you can slowly improve it. 

iguazi123: That’s a great advice. We haven’t posted for a while indeed. 

ericet:

>Wherein power will let you have more controls. 

iguazi123: Yes, we are also looking forward to WhereINPower, and our team is  working hard on it.  

Q10: The last question: do you have something to say to yourself and to WhereIN users?  

ericet:

>To be short, I hope I will see everyone on this platform one year from now.

iguazi123: I hope so too. This is very important.

We firmly believe that Steem has been gaining momentum, and we are looking forward to its mass adoption!

“发帖能赚钱”——相信加入steem中文社区大家族的新老朋友都是被它吸引进来的,steem自16年开始发展,到现在短短的三年时间,steem发生了太多的故事,作为未来的一大趋势,其中涵盖了无数的工具、网站甚至是社区,当我们沉浸在steem带给我们的美好未来的同时,往往忽略了在steem背后默默付出的他们,他们大多是抱着对steem的满腔热情,不断探索与钻研,也是他们在背后作为驱动让steem得以快速的进入大家的视野,让steem得以未来可期。
为了帮助进入社区的朋友们更好的了解steem中文社区,WhereIN社区举办了第一期“10问”活动,本次活动我们邀请到了新手村村长ericet(team-cn、cn-curation、cn-activity、teamcn-shop和cn-voice等的建立者)作为我们的活动嘉宾。下面是我们整理的一些与村长的“十问”谈话内容,希望此次活动也能帮助大家进入更深层次的理解。

-------------------------------------------------Start-------------------------------------------------
瓜子:
村长,在吗?跟大家打声招呼呢?

村长:
Hi~

瓜子:
哈哈,很简洁的招呼,那我们现在开始吧。
“10问”1 相信我们里面很多人都非常熟悉村长,在我们十问正式开始前,还是请村长介绍一下自己吧。

村长:
大家好,我就是传说中的村长。现居美国大农村的一位普通码农。

瓜子:
大洋彼岸的对话哈哈。村长可简单介绍一下平时的爱好,以及村长(村龙)的由来哦。

村长:
在接触虚拟货币前,是撸卡一族。接触虚拟货币后,卡不怎么撸了,会花时间看些关于虚拟货币的资料。现在空闲的时候会写一些steem上的机器人。比如小卖部 @teamcn-shop等机器人。村长是瓜叔给的。米高是村高,软哥是村宽,我们是长宽高。

瓜子:
据说村民还帮村长画了漫画,show一个。

村长:
我的头像就是小p画的,兔子给上色的。

瓜子:
“10问”2 我们知道村长、米高和软哥发起了新手村,发起之处就是Steem cn区的一股清流,一年多了,新手村默默为进入Steem的新人贡献着,能分享下新手村的发起过程吗?有没有让你特别感动的事情和瞬间?是什么促使你们仨持续将新手村发展下去?

村长:
一开始@honoru 米高发了一个访谈的活动,想通过访谈的模式访谈一些新人。我觉得这是一个很棒很有意义的活动,可以通过这种模式来推广新人。私下和米高哥交谈后,我们完整了一下计划,从而team-cn 新手村就诞生了,新手村一开始以访谈新手为主,在一路帮助新人的路上,我们也不断改进,比如新手们对steem规则迷茫,我们发起了“新手学堂”,以作业的形式让大家更容易了解steem的动态和规则,新手们觉得好文的价值被低估,我们联合@htliao策划了“飞鸽传书”,每天有不同的编辑负责发掘社区好文,并给予点赞支持。

新手们觉得活动不好找,英文不好,不容易参加CN区以外的活动,我们发起了“寻宝团”,每天有不同的编辑负责寻找STEEM上容易的活动让大家参与。

大家怀念曾经的小可爱和淘气包,我们搞了“小卖部”;

大家怀念一姐曾经的好声音活动,我们搞了新的“好声音”的活动;

大家怕SBI未来跑路,我们发了属于我们自己的代币Newbies Coin(新手币/牛币)来取代他,并且奖励那些持续为社区做出贡献的人;

新手村这一路不为钱,一直以人为本的发展至今。

感动的事情很多,像新手村第一届画浣熊大赛,那时我们都是新人,收益不多,但是还是靠着大家的热情凑齐了37 SBD作为活动奖励。就是很多像这样子的事情,让我们继续下来。

瓜子:
team-cn从三个人开始,一步步摸索着前进,不断根据需求开始新的征程,跟我们知道的社群非常像。

村长:
是的,大家都在摸索的前进,也享受摸索的过程,要说收获,首先认识了很多来自世界各地的有趣的朋友,其次是因为STEEM让我重拾了编程的热情。自从工作后,编程就变成工作,以前的热情就少了,通过写了一些小程序,慢慢拾回了曾经的热情。
促使我们三个持续发展下去的原因是,我们曾经帮助过的新人,现在很多都成了CN区活跃的分子,并且都很热心的引导和帮助其他新人。我们种下的种子也慢慢的发芽长成大树了,虽然过程比较久,但是当他们慢慢成长后,我们是很开心的。

瓜子:
这真的太棒了,刚进新手村群里的时候,一天不看消息,几千条,还是跟大家紧密相关的,让我非常惊讶。村长,一句话总结一下,是什么让大家彼此在这玩乐?

村长:
之前软哥说过一句话,为钱人来,为情而留。情谊让大家留下开心的玩乐。

瓜子:
为钱而来,为情而留,精辟!
“10问”3 村长是Steem社区的老人了,还记得您刚进社区时候的样子吗?

村长:
不算是老人,算是老新人吧,加入1年多。来的也不是好时机,所以发帖后没人留言,点赞。是一段很寂寞的日子。大概3个月收益不足1 steem吧

瓜子:
很多新人都有这样的一个过程,刚开始无人问津,后面突然从那个时刻开始,越来越好。村长,有这样一个转变的时刻吗,有做啥子事情不?

村长:
后来碰到软哥@softmetal和@honoru 米高,有人交流也不寂寞,然后我们开始研究各种steem的规则。

瓜子:
远行的路上,有结伴而行的伙伴了,为@Song @Michael @ iCare.World @softmetal 三剑客鼓掌

村长:
懂得一些规则能让你了解社区并且更好的参与进来,所以steem指南大家要看,了解一些基本规则,但是还是感谢那段低潮,没经历过高峰时期也就没有多少失落感了

瓜子:
这样一个平和的心态很好,村长,借此机会给大家分享社区或您为大家准备的指南吧,村长推荐榜单。

村长:
https://busy.org/@ericet/db528bhdn3 这是我之前写的新手指南,基本上是我在社区的经验。大家也可以关注一下team-cn每周一的作业,每周会添加一些比较热门的项目让大家参与。

瓜子:
“10问”4 Steem满三年了,在您眼里,Steem是一个什么样的社区?对于新人,如何更好地融入这个社区(在社区里更high地玩)?有没啥子密码,一招破除天下武功的那种。

村长:
steem不单单只是个内容社区,里面有很多不同的dapps,steemit只是其中一个。你想玩游戏可以玩steemmonsters,drugwars,nextcolony,cache(eth上的游戏,要搬过来了),
你是艺术家,喜欢画画摄影手工,可以用ntopaz;喜欢分享生活可以用wherein,partiko,esteem;喜欢旅游写攻略可以用tripsteem;喜欢美食可以用tasteem;
很多不同的dapps,面向的用户也不同。新人找准自己的定位很快就可以融入进来的,
而且社区里面有很多送钱的活动让大家参与,
关注一下cn-activity这个账号,编辑们每天在寻找一些比较简单容易得奖的获得让大家参与,wherein也有很多送钱的活动,
总的来说,新人要融入社区,多参加活动,多认识朋友。这里不是纯写作平台,社交大于写作,问题回答完毕了。

瓜子:
社交大于写作,划重点了!
“10问”5 我一直很好奇村长的生活状态,相信很多人跟我一样,作为程序猿的村长,给我们分享一下工作和日常生活中是怎样的呢?特别好奇,村长咋个有那么多时间在新手村为大家解答疑惑,有那么多精力为大家寻找各种活动和资讯。

村长:
工作算是挺平淡轻松的,写写程序找找bugs。之前在投行工作,压力大,如果继续在那里工作也没时间和大家瞎扯。后来有了孩子,想多留点时间给家庭,换了份比较轻松的工作。大农村没啥生活,基本下班带孩子老婆去商店,公园逛逛但是可能平淡惯了,不习惯城市喧哗吵闹的生活。

瓜子:
“10问”6 最近SCOT和steem-engine动作频繁,为社区做了很多很棒的事情,对此,村长有啥子看法?这对社区产生何种推动力?

村长:
steem-engine的一系列操作让社区可以自主的发币建自己的平台,这是很棒的做法。比如写影评的将有自己的平台,画画的有自己的平台,唱歌的有自己的平台,这样更容易让新人找到属于自己的平台发展。但是本身由于基于steem第二层上,还是有一些问题。未来如果SMT真出了,怎么共存也是个难题。但是steem-engine的scotbot给了steemit inc一些压力,让他们加速开发SMT。

瓜子:
确实,这为沉寂的Steem带来了一些涟漪,就像丢了一小块石头到平静的池塘之中。
“10问”7 村长这两天在带着大家玩SCT,对目前火热的SCT和WeedCash村长如何看呢?

村长:
Weedcash是scot的第一个作品,让大家看到社区发币建平台的可能性,但是由于内容是关于大麻的,让大家融入不进去。大家写的和大麻没关系的帖子还会被weedcash发起人踩。
steemcoinpan(SCT)是第二个作品,SCT创始人一开始活跃在weedcash平台上,了解weedcash的不足和问题,所以对sct进行了温和的管理。weedcash不算成功的作品,但是给后面的人一个很好的经验。
目前SCT由于刚发布不久,热度和收益都很高,怎样保持这热度还要看SCT怎么管理了。可能是很好的学习经验。

瓜子:
简单明了,steemcoinpan和weedcash对社区都是一些宝贵的经验

村长:
顺便说一下,steem-engine上最火爆的项目JJM也要发平台了。关于影评的,影评爱好者不要错过第一波哦。

瓜子:
“10问”8 村长在美国,区块链在海外发展如何呢?最近币价回升,海外区块链的热度如何?

村长:
区块链还是稳步发展的,最近也收到好多要求区块链知识技术的招聘,工资都很不错。我好久没关注币价了,1年前时我和同事还在公司币价,现在没人提,可能是伤心的往事吧。

瓜子:
国外可能更专注于技术,祝愿区块链越来越棒,真能实现曾经吹过的牛逼。
下一问是关于WhereIN的,WhereIN想将Steem这种独特的经济模型和机制引入中国的社群中。
“10问”9 村长有啥子建议给到WhereIN吗?您对WhereIN社区有啥看法呢?

村长:建议是时不时的发帖上热门,这样让大家知道你们在做什么,打打广告什么的。 我之前看到一个评论说,不清楚你们现在的进展如何了。最近看到steemkiller的游戏帖子,期待杀手游戏发布。
尽快开发wherein power,就算不完美也可以慢慢改进,毕竟现在有热度。

瓜子:
这个建议很中肯,我们确实好久没发声了。

村长:
wherein power可以让你们更加灵活管理

瓜子:
是的,我们也比较期待WhereINPower,小哥哥小姐姐在努力ing。
“10问”10 最后一个问题,有没有,想送给自己的一句话?以及送给WhereIN小伙伴的一句话?

村长:这个回答就简短点,希望明年的这时候我们大家依然都在。

瓜子:是的,我们大家一直都在才是重要的

-------------------------------------------------End-------------------------------------------------
我们始终相信,steem的故事已经开始,并且也将一直进行,期待steem走进大众视野的那天!
加入wherein,愿你我一起分享世界的美好!
