With so many new members arriving in the community we felt it was time for a quick recap on the OCD Incubation Program.
We will touch on what it’s about, who can benefit from it and how we make our selections.
The OCD incubation program was developed to bring extra support to niche communities and their members. It allows community leaders and curators to nominate quality posts submitted directly from their community page to receive an @ocdb upvote.
One of the main goals is to encourage people to post their content in the appropriate communities that fit their post topic. This will also bring more activity and interaction to these communities as relevant content is published that interest fellow community members.
If you post your content in a community that is being incubated, are one who creates quality and original content and follows community rules and guidelines then you have a good chance of benefiting from this program.
We do have a process on how we make our selections for nominations. We first check to see if the guidelines have been followed that are listed in our FAQs.
We next look at the quality along with the creativity of the post, looking at how well it was written and if the photos used are clear, sharp and well lit.
We also check the author’s interaction with other members; seeing how often they comment and respond. Being active in the community does play a part in whether or not your post gets nominated. We are trying to encourage a supportive interactive community and we deem communication as an important factor in getting those extra boosts.
Finally, we determine if a post is due for submission, meaning the author hasn’t already reached the nom limit. In order for rewards to be fairly spread around OCD has instructed us not to submit the same author more than three times a week. It’s fair and encourages us to find new authors who could use a boost in support.
I do want to mention that those who put forth more effort in their content and are visibly active takes precedence over those who show little efforts.
We look for authors who standout and add a little more to their posts than just tutorials. Sharing a little background story about your project, how you felt during the work, helping us get to know the needler behind the fabric or anything that helps engage your readers would definitely get our eyes on you and make you a priority nominee. 😉
OCD allows the option for us to share a little of why we chose your post. Believe me, by some of the descriptions our team leaves I can guarantee it has helped authors get even better support.
So please put effort into your publications and make it has good a quality as you possibly can…we want to see you get that boost you deserve. 😊
