New and Updated Guidelines for BDVoter

in BDCommunity2 months ago (edited)

We, at BDVoter, have always rewarded contents that promote both Bengali culture while at the same time, a diverse plethora of contents all over the ecosystem.


Does the BDV Curate ONLY within the BDCommunity?


Although we start our day curating content from the BDCommunity, we do not stay there for the rest of the day as we venture over to as many communities as humanly possible in search of content that deserves rewarding.


Why do the BDV need guidelines?


Our curators are human, and finding out the quality posts midst a large amount of low-quality posts that are abusing our reward pool is very time-consuming. We want to let authors have a clear idea of the content we curate to reduce lower quality posts and make the job of finding materials worthy of getting rewarded.

Recently, we have seen an influx of new users and prominent veteran users who have started abusing our goodwill. So we have decided to update our guidelines about what posts we curate and what we do not.

We have always curated and will continue to curate only original content, with a strong stance against any form of content abuse, spamming, and plagiarism. We highly discourage spamming and abuse.


What the content creators have to focus on if they want to get curated?


BDV promotes content that one can call TextBook blogs. Fun, entertaining, and adds value at the same time. These blogs can be about anything. From travel stories to fiction to philosophical gibber-jabber! ANYTHING

While curating, what we look for is quality, with a bit of character and originality in terms of style. Remember, your blog represents you.

For example, if you are writing about your visit to the beach or a beautiful mystic forest, it would be great content. If you decide to post a couple of photos, write a couple of words and call it a travel post, that is NOT OK.Let us see that beautiful mystic forest through your eyes, not your camera.

We curate photography. However, you might want to write about what those images do not show. We are looking to curate your thought process rather than your pictures. Show us that you've put in enough effort. We tend to understand how much effort went into writing a post.

An extremely short post, whatever the content may be, short story, poetry, etc. tends to give us a textbook vibe of not enough effort. No, we do not have a word limit. We will let your conscience judge what you present on your blog.

We highly discourage spamming. In hopes of getting upvoted, if you decide to post multiple times throughout the day, you might not get the result that you seek. We tend to try and distribute rewards between authors based on their effort and the value of their content.

However, if you spam low-quality content, you are unlikely to get the support. Whichever community you are maybe posting in, you will be muted indefinitely by the respective moderators.

And, that is it. DO NOT SPAM AND DO NOT WRITE EFFORTLESS LOW-QUALITY POSTS. At the end of the day, WE reserve the right to decide what low-effort is, and we think we have a good sense of judgment.


We want to reward good quality content. Please give us a reason to reward you.


If you have any questions, feel free to ask us here or head over to our discord. We usually have someone to answer your questions during our work hours.

Wonderful update and guidelines.

Thank you for this improvement. You guys are among the communities I respect here. But, one thing about "quality" is that- they are mostly based on perspective. I moderated on a couple of projects on Steem back then and I see that setting quality based on some factors as the best to judge quality. For instance-- How comprehensive, thoughts and originality, style and language used, punctuation and readability, post formation and many more. These factors would also make the content writers to improve considerably over time. Anyway, this is a good one from you guys.

As we said. -At the end of the day, WE reserve the right to decide what low-effort and low-quality is, and we think we have a good sense of judgment.

That was just a thought- nothing to re-quote for, I read that. You guys have curated my post several times and I have no issues with the ways you define quality or judgement. Again, that was simply a thought.

Peace!

Just a confirmation, I wrote this https://hive.blog/hive-190212/@tykee/thank-you-bdcommunity-and-bdvoter to appreciate you guys a couple weeks a go. :)

that is a very good move @bdvoter. I also had realized that folks were abusing the upvote given by the bdvoter. But now that we have the guidelines set, I see we will have good quality post being upvoted and as result we will see HIVE grow overall as well. coz. whats does matters is good content on the platform. Once again ou people are doing a fantastic job and a very good move in putting forth the guidelines. cheers

Thanks for sharing us the guidelines I hope it will be helpful for the new year comers as well as the existing others.

Okay it was a clear explanation what should we do to get support from our native community.
I will keep these in head from the very next moment. Thank you guys for the support.

It was a clear explanation of what you should do to get support from The BDVoter. Bdvoter is not a community. Its a Manual curation project.

By community i mean the bdcommunity.

And as I said, BDVoter is not a community. BDVoter and BDCommunity are two very separate and different projects.

Thanks for explaining all these things clearly. Obviously it's the matter of creating value rather abusing. It has been seen that a number of newcomers are joining in this community and posting low quality content. Whatever the explanation from @BDVoter was very much needed. I have a single question.

Does it matter the delegation to bdvoter to get curated? Couple of days back I have delegated to bdvoter and after that I have not been curated for 4/5 days. That's why I was thinking that is it a impact or matter. May be my content was not upto the mark on those days. Please clearify. Thanks in Advance.

Not getting supported from BDVoter can mean only one thing. There were better contents to get supported. Just try a little more and you should be okay.

Nice update from the team, I hope the information helps everyone and expecially to our newbies so that they can get good rewards to there quality contents.

Its nice to know theres such a community

I was confused of what i should write about whats not ,now its clear to me.Thank you for the explanation.

Thanks so much for this update. This means alot to alot of content creators. You guys have been doing a great job on here. Weldone and keep it up.

These guidelines will sure come in handy to someone like me who is seriously considering doing more of photography blogging.

I appreciate that you shared some guidelines for curation. I understand that curators are human and they miss the good content sometimes. I have seen some instances of abuse and good to know that now you're against. Thanks for clarifying that BDvoter is a curation project and not a community. Not sure but I think many think that your preferred place to support is BDCommunity. Thanks again. Have a nice weekend.

Nice update and guidelines.

Let us see that beautiful mystic forest through your eyes, not your camera.

Liked this sentence way too much.

Thanks for making it clear. I highly appreciate your works. Unfortunately, I didn't get any support to my post on bdcommunity yet. I am trying to make good contents here.

I love this already. At least people can be guided

Thank you for this transparency.

You are doing great job. I have seen it. The community is very good. I am posting in community time to time, little disappointed that my content can be low in quality. Please have a look.

Thank you so much for the clarity,you people have been doing well,I am always motivated by your good works,keep it up

This update is wonderful! At least, people now have a sense of direction and know what is expected of them to have a chance of being curated.

Thanks for the update and guidance..

i am full agree with bdvoter guidelines.

Thank you so much to bdvoter, they have proven to be the best curator in this community space.

Thanks for the update but just a quick alarm. I haven't been getting any upvote from the bdvoter. Even though I out efforts into these things/writings, I never get upvoted it appreciated for it.

I hope the curators will do a better job henceforth while the users also will reduce their spamming.

Thats a perfect one.

I've been in Hive for a few weeks and still, exploring the corners to get a better understanding. You've made a lot of things clear for me and form the next time, I'll keep those in mind.

However, as from your info provided, I think it's tougher to curate contents manually than I thought earlier as numerous pieces are coming from here and there. And, I salute your efforts for keeping this quality-centered.

Hope to contribute more to this ecosystem and wish to grow together. :)

You could share it.
