SteemMakers focuses on both the maker and do-it-yourself movement.
With DIY we mean all activity to create or modify anything when it is accomplished by an individual rather than by a paid professional.
The makers movement is a technology driven subgroup of the DIY movement. It focuses on the creation of new devices as well as tinkering with existing ones.
We aim to be a guiding and helping community, supporting makers and DIYers on the steem blockchain in various ways. Have a look at our about page for more details.
SteemMakers supports the makers themselves, so you need to be the one who made it, or demonstrate in your post that what you made is a derivative work with your own original touch to it.
It’s very good that you’ve shown your project under every angle, but we try to find projects that truly educate the readers as to how it was made, what materials were required, and how it was all put together.
We prefer video posts that at least have a short description. It also depends on the content of the video. Basically the same approach as for pictures is applicable for videos.
Of course it is.
Given how the Steem blockchain works, the SteemMakers account will only vote for posts still in their active reward phase. This means SteemMakers will only vote and feature posts under 6 days old.
At this moment we are mainly focusing on English posts.
We focus on content that is original and has not been published anywhere before. SteemMakers obviously focuses on the Steem blockchain first.
Your post can’t be a simple show-and-tell of how you finished a tutorial project that already existed. Exceptions can be made if you add to the original tutorial that for example has further details or different steps that leads to a different result.
SteemMakers works as a curation guild. This means we search for valuable posts ourselves. You can request a review by posting a link in the request-review channel on our Discord server.
Yes, you can.
You can increase your chances of discovery by using the ‘steemmakers’ tag when posting.
There is no guarantee your post will get featured. It is entirely up to the team to decide on which posts are considered.
As many as you can make.
