IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT THE UPCOMING BATCH OF NEWBIES INITIATIVE || CHANGES AND ADDITIONS MADE TO THE INITIATIVE

image.png

Since the Newbies Initiative's latest batch of applicants has concluded, I have received a few messages asking when the initiative's next round's applications will be accepted. In this article, I'll respond to these queries and discuss any modifications or additions I plan to make to the program.

First, the application period for the subsequent round of the newbies initiative will commence in September and finish on September 30. After the deadline, we will strictly not accept any more applications.

REQUIREMENTS TO JOIN THE INITIATIVE

Please note that the applications will only be accepted from authors who have been on Hive for no longer than six months. The calculation will start with the writers' very first Hive post (steem is not counted). It is advised to avoid applying if the first post you published on Hive is more than six months because your application would be denied.

As a result of our observation that newbies with fewer support have a lesser likelihood of reaching a reputation of 60 within six months, we are also decreasing the reputation to 60. If you are a new user and have built up a reputation of 60 or more in less than six months, this indicates that you have figured out how to use the platform and have received some sort of support. This adjustment was made so that we could mentor newbies who actually needed the initiative for their development rather than those who may not take it seriously.

The 500 HP cap on hive power still applies as usual. The initiative would not be open to newbies who have accrued more than 500 Hive Power via their posts. It won't be counted if you have more than 500 HP as a result of frequent powerups. There is a means for us to determine whether or not you have acquired up to 500 HP from your posts as opposed to typical powerups.

ADDITION OF TEAMS AND TEAM-LEADERS TO THE INITIATIVE

This time, we would divide the newbies into teams, thus the newbies initiative would be accepting a specific number of newbies. There would be a maximum of 3 teams in the initiative, each with 10 people.

I have chosen three grads from the previous batch of newcomers to serve as team leaders, and they will be responsible for personally checking in with each newbie on their team and providing weekly performance reports. Each team leader would submit a weekly report detailing the level of activity their newbies shown throughout the previous week as well as their performance on the assigned tasks.

Also, it would be great to mention that we would be removing inactive newbies from the initiative. There is no need being part of the initiative when there is no there is no sign of interest towards the initiative activities. Newbies would be dropped immediately if they fail to perform any task without any prior notification with a good reason why the task was missed.

The best newbie from each team would receive a prize in the form of post beneficiaries after each task, and at the conclusion of the program, a reward would be presented to the overall best newbie for that batch, in order to motivate newbies to engage in each assignment. For the time being, the prize is a secret.

NEWBIES INITIATIVE TASKS AND TUTORIALS

We wouldn't create any additional tutorials for the guides unless they are absolutely necessary. Although we would be using pre-made tutorials, there would still be a live session on Discord explaining them, with the date and time of each session publicized in the discord server. Anyone who is interested in participating in the live sessions can access the channel.

NEWBIES INITIATIVE BADGES AND VERIFICATION

The badges are another alteration that will be made to the initiative. Once their applications have been approved, we will only award the newbies with a different badge (totally different from the headline of this post). Therefore, requesting a badge is no longer necessary when submitting an application to the newbies initiative. Once the application has been approved, a badge will be issued. We would only take a limit of 30 newbies, as was previously stated.

The applicant must be validated on the hive learners discord server and have joined the smile discord server in order for their application to be approved. The application will be rejected if the newbie is unable to join the Hive Learners Discord server and get verified.

IMPORTANT NOTICE!!!

The major goal of the newbies initiative is to offer mentorship and direction to newbies who have come to Hive without being familiar with its Dos and Don'ts. For newbies, we offer organized lectures and live sessions, and we make every effort to promote their articles. It is crucial to remember that votes are not guaranteed, thus there is absolutely no justification for any newbie to believe they are entitled to support.

We kindly request that you only participate in this project if you are doing so with the intention of staying for a long time and are not doing it for the prizes or the likelihood that your posts will receive frequent curation; otherwise, you will be very disappointed.

Yes it is indeed special and I think your take on it is not bad at all. The thing is, there are surely going to be special cases and I think it's best if we also look at the seriousness of any person applying in the end of all other qualifications.

Wow, it's a good thing you got to know of Hive but it's obvious you are still a newbie. Like the author has said, if you think you need more tutorials try and follow the updates from the newbies hive.

If you do not want to join its still fine, you can just learn behind the scenes, anytime a task is given, you can read and also learn as well.

Wow, the newbies initiative is taking a new shape which is well structured and to the advantage of any qualified and lucky newbie who will be a beneficiary of this next batch. Being an old beneficiary, I can assure every new participant of getting a large percentage of a learning curve in this blockchain, only if taken with all seriousness.

@starstrings01 many thanks for the nurturing and coaching. God reward you 👍

You deserve a round of applause for this. I think the rules for joining and all one needs to know for this first batch and very well stated and I'm very happy that these changes are being implemented, that are goes to show that you are a great leader.

The aspect where you talked about the limitations of reputation, I have discovered that there are some newbies who are here less than five months and they've already crossed that reputation but when you read through their blogs, it's obvious they do not know some very important things about Hive but they get good support.

I think it won't be out of place to still accept such persons because like you stated in your concluding part that no one should join with the mind of having support, so these persons for them to apply even though they already have support, that means they want to learn or what do you think?

Thank you very much for the kind words.. I really appreciate

I have discovered that there are some newbies who are here less than five months and they've already crossed that reputation but when you read through their blogs, it's obvious they do not know some important things about Hive but they get good support.

So, there is a reason why the initiative is open to everyone even though they are not part of it. This you have stated is actually the reason.

People who are interested in learning more can attend the initiative's live discord meetings, where we go over most of the information we plan to provide to our newbies. They would then be able to benefit from the same information shared with these newbies without even having to participate in the initiative.

The project only serves as an incentive to encourage and push newbies to persevere and not give up. More like the push they require and the pat on the back they require to remain encouraged.

You're welcome Sir 🙏.

Oh yes, that also what I thought of too because normally every meeting is even recorded and posted through the newbies-hive account and it's visible to all both newbies and non-newbies, so everyone can learn from it then without being part of the initiative.

That is brilliant, having this in mind will really help to stick with the qualifications, smiles.

Wow... Once again another newbies are to be reborn into hive platform. It's the best as you have kept on with this format to make those coming to hive to have more knowledge about how to use hive platform.

I can see that @starstrings01 is doing a great job here on hive and without him and his group, I wouldn't have gotten to where I'm today.

This is an opportunity to be at your best in the hive platform.

Wow. It has been quite a journey with the last newbies initiative. It is a good one that some adjustments have been made to accomodate the serious newbies.

Concerning the badge as it is now automatic that means @projectmamabg won't be over spammed.😀

Thanks for all you do, comrade!

That's really great news for newbies for this great transition #HiveLearners community is bringing. It's really going to help most newbies to grow very fast.

Please does this include all those who began writing in hive but later introduce themselves within this six months period. I am saying this because I first posted to hive and later realized to write proper introductory post.

Greetings, @starstrings01. I take this space of your post to notify you that I made a mistake posting in this community "Hive Learners". My intention was always to post here, but then upon further review of the rules, I realized I couldn't or now. I was going to post in another community, but I'm almost asleep and didn't realize that your community was still selected.

Sorry for the inconvenience.

Wow this is really good especially the addition of teams to the initiative. It's true that most newbies join the initiative but get lost at the middle, it's good there's someone that will checkmate those who are participating well on on hive.

The prize presentation to the overall newbie is also a very good idea, at least it will enable the newbies to put in more effort in the task that will be given.

I'm happy that the next batch of the newbies initiative task will soon begin and I hope the lucky ones get accepted 😍😍
