Hey all! Time for another update on our ongoing Community Incubation Program from Team OCD. In our last post, we added 3 new communities to our list and we also saw some interesting stats with respect to subscriber growth and cumulative SP subscription in the communities we're currently supporting. Next month we also plan to add some metrics around activity. So far we've seen good results with the Community Incubation Program and hopefully when there's a influx of new users they'll find it easier to find and interact with the right community spaces. Community leaders/moderators continue to highlight posts in our discord for some added curation, and we notice some growth with respect to subscriber count and engagement in these communities. We also hope to conduct some contests in future to further boost engagement in smaller communities and give them added visibility.
Our aim is to support communities, help them grow and allow users posting on genre specific topics find the right community spaces to interact with like-minded individuals, and gain through the focused curation done by community leaders.
If you've started new and unique genre-specific community that has the potential to raise a lot of activity and doesn't exist yet, feel free to apply for our incubation program - either by writing in the comment section or contacting us on our Discord in the community-incubation channel. You can get more info about the program here.

Most communities are growing well and people are certainly checking them out as they explore diverse topics and contribute to interesting conversations across hive. Even the newer additions to our program saw some subscriber growth. In terms of engagement, communities like Photography Lovers, Feathered Friends, Hive Gaming, Have You Been Here and On Chain Art registered over 1k interactions. Gaming, Photography and Art are popular topics that generate a lot of interaction and engagement. ecoTrain crossed the 1k subs count. Some communities including Amazing Nature had 200+ active users as well, which is always a good sign. What is the one new community you subscribed to recently? - we'd love to know in comments.
Communities that we were supporting and got in touch with us recently:
- Foodies Bee Hive - 1828 subs
We're still waiting on some communities to give their info. The communities listed below can join our Discord to get in touch with us for onboarding into the program!
We're looking forward to adding more communities focusing on different subjects to our incubation program, and helping them grow with curation/delegations.
These posts aim to highlight the communities as well as their curation accounts that post the curation reports, and if you find a community interesting, do feel free to have a look around/subscribe. They'd be happy to welcome/guide you.
The community moderators/curators are doing a great job trying to onboard and help new users as well as highlighting great content for curation. With our Community Incubation, we want to reward the content creators as well as curators. It's important that users find the right communities and subscribe to those that interest them, which keeps them active and engaged. Thanks for reading!
We would appreciate it if you want to delegate to @ocdb and earn some daily returns with a low fee which can be tracked on our website and vote for our witness if you appreciate what we're doing on Hive.
Have you stumbled upon some new communities that are unique to the ones above and would like to see them get supported? Feel free to mention them here in the comments or join us on Discord and talk about it there in the #community-incubation channel! Please note that this is only for unique niches/genres of communities, nothing "general original content" or country/language based.
