The HiveNaija Community had wanted to create an atmosphere of acceptance to all members/intending members which resulted to not issuing so many complicated rules.
We, however, have noticed the lack of effort by some participants in the community. This affects the community in more ways than one. We all want the HiveNaija community to grow and surpass expectations, but this would require all hands on deck. So with immediate effect, the following rules would be implemented in the community.
I. No Plagiarism: Unfortunately, we have come across some plagiarized content in the HiveNaija. This doesn't speak well of a person or even a community. Moving forward, anyone caught in the act would be immediately muted from the community.
II. No Spam: Spam wouldn't be tolerated in the community. Spammers would be muted from the community with immediate effect.
III. No low effort posts: We do understand that sometimes, inspiration may be lacking and as a result birth questionable publications. We would advise that you take a day or two off and come back with a well detailed, structured and sourced post for your sake, that of the community and all those in it. Also, low effort posts (as of today), run the risk of not being seen by Curators especially in regards to the weekly prompt.
IV. Proper Sourcing: The HiveNaija is well aware of the reference options especially when quoting a favorite philosopher or musician. We also do know that proper citing frees every author from avoidable problems:
i. You can use the ">" to quote another author/writer making sure to give credit to whom it is due.
ii. Copyright free pictures are preferably best when making any publication in the HiveNaija or other communities. This rule is generally applied on Hive and stands to abate copyright infringement policies. Therefore, you can search the following sites for free pictures:
Please note that sourcing is still important; be it your own image or images gotten from any of the sites above. For those who have no idea, you can source like this:
V. Prompt rules: In every new prompt, there are rules stipulated for the members to follow to qualify in the contest:
Create a video or write-up where you talk about the prompt.
Include #hivenaijaweekly as your first tag to make it easy to find you.
Post a link to your entry as a comment in this post.
Engage with other content from other authors.
You must follow the curation trail.
We would be issuing membership badges to those who'd adhere to the rules. The HiveNaija community is for everyone; Nigerian or not.
The aim of the community is to bring the Naija experience to Hive. We get to see the world from the Nigerian perspective, share in the moments of joy or pangs of pain.
Of course, the issuing of Membership badges has already begun!
Previously, the HiveNaija had meetings every Sunday on Telegram to engage and get to know its community members. The reason for this meeting was to create an atmosphere of togetherness for all members; bringing them closer to each other. Due to some circumstances, it was suspended. However, we are pleased to announce it's resumption plus some modifications.
The HiveNaija Meetings tagged "2geda Naija" would hold every last Sundays of the month on Discord by 6pm. In this meeting, we'd get to know each other, talk about our various Hive experiences, testimonies, present our difficulties and put our heads 2geda for solutions. There'll also be fun and games. Join our Discord
