This was a big week as the sports tribe moved over the 1000 mark and we are now sitting on 1018 members which is a huge milestone ticked off. Plus 20 from last week which is about our average of late. Realistically if we can double that by the year end and be sitting over 2000 then we are doing a decent job of attracting new users. Just 2 a day or just over is what we need to please everyone keep pushing and looking for opportunities to sign new users up.
The trick to attracting new people is if we make some noise and reply and comment like mad showing there are more users active than their really are. No just kidding just be active and others will be drawn in.
This week was a disappointing week on the curation front as we only managed 11 posts to be submitted to OCD. This is down by a good 50 % and it wasn't from lack of trying on my part. I went back and forth for days hoping that I missed some and I am afraid that was not the case. We have reached a set standard and that cannot be compromised by filling up the numbers with sub standard posts. The devil on my shoulder said submit some more, but I can't as we have come so far.
Please this is open to everyone who writes a sports post and it is not rocket science. A decent length posts using your own words is not too much to ask surely? We have many posts that literally are 150 - 200 words and cannot be submitted as honestly that is like a long comment and doesn't warrant extra rewards. We all know who those users are doing multiple posts daily and I am asking them to reconsider and do at least one decent post.
This week I have guided two old users to improve so I am constantly looking to help others with their offerings. If you are going to write a post my thinking is why not put some effort into it giving yourself the opportunity to be curated otherwise you are wasting your time. We are all here to grow and should be everyone's goal.
Lets hope next week is better than this week and I will start asking more "authors" to at least try with some direct contact on their posts. Those of you taking a break this week, that is not allowed lol and hoping I have some more to read and curate over the coming days. Don't waste @ocd's generous offering to the sports community as we have to make it worth their while at the same time. They have a commitment to their delegators and finding votes is time consuming so please everyone lets see what we can do this week.
