Please Remember That LeoFinance is for Finance/Crypto/Investing/Money/Business Related Topics

The community continues to grow here at leofinance and that is awesome. However, lately I have seen more and more posts in the new section about things that in no way shape or form are related to finance and such associated topics.

Many of the posts are quality pieces, they are just in the wrong place. This can happen a number of ways, with a post being written on hive and the leofinance tag being used probably the most common among them.

Let's Please Stay On Topic

I really enjoy reading the plethora of quality content that comes through on this platform, but as a curator I felt compelled to mention this trend I am seeing.

One of the greatest strength of leofinance is the quality of its content relative to many other social media sites. Part of that is because it revolves around a specific niche of finance and investing related topics. Let's do our best to keep that consistent.

You won't see that from me. I've noticed that as well. I believe people are just trying to earn HIVE and LEO on the same post, but it's in the hands of the curators to decide how much LEO are non related posts earning.

You're certainly right; one thing is misinformation, a lot of new people feels leo is the most exciting thing hence they want to get involved more but howbeit with the wrong Content. I think it surprise me too but then I try to drop by sometimes to tell these people that their Content isn't finance related. If they engage and move around more im sure they'll get a hand of what finance is.

Hey @scaredycatguide, that is a valid concern. A few days ago I came across a post which was unrelated to LEO. It was mentioned as an EDIT that the author by mistake chose the wrong community from the drop-down while making the post on Peakd.

Sometimes genuine mistakes happen. In that scenario is there a way to change the community? Will removing the relevant LEO tags from the post help solve that problem?

I think the biggest issue is people trying to take advantage of as many tags as they can and milk the reward pools. It is intentional. Usually when you call them out on it they try to give you some convoluted story about how what they are talking about ties into finance. It is actually a bit funny to read some of those comments!

So i can't post gifs and interviews ? :(

Your interviews are of people on leofinance (who post about financial stuff) why would that even been a worry?

I believe that happens because LeoFinance has been so successful that everybody wants a piece of it so some people just spam the tag on their posts.

As you said, some of them are actually very good, just don't belong here.
