Introducing Contributors to our project page: New feature allows users to place tasks

Rewards

No YUP/tokens awarded

Hello Crowdholders,

 

We have new developments where you as a user can become a contributor to place your own tasks!  You will be able to place your own tasks by topping up YUPs in your new admin console.

 

Working for a project or need help with your own freelance work? You can place a task to have the Crowdholders help you. It can be about a blog you just published or finding pain points of a new project you want to start! The amount of task/ideas are endless to get the crowd to help your personal interests or initiatives.

 

If you want to be a contributor, this task is for you! So here is what we need you to do:  

 

       1) Go ahead and click on the header    

       

       2) Next, select contributor and begin filling your profile

     

       3) When done, hit submit

 

Once we receive your profile our team will look it over and approve it. If we have questions for you to make changes you will hear from us. This will help us determine a process to accept qualified contributors. Now for our questions:

 

  • How was the flow of submitting the application? Did you encounter any problems?

  • How likely are you to place tasks? Will you be willing to reward YUPs you have earned so far? Are you willing to buy additional YUPs to place tasks?

  • What sort of tasks would you love to see appearing or would like to post?

 

We look forward to your feedback!

 

Cheers,

Crowdholding Team

I am a Mechanical Engineer with expertise in power and Mecha-tronics. An Entrepreneur

When i am done setting up my projects will use my tokens to place it here and show this wonderful community what i am doing, I like being here i will definetly want to advertise here. i would also like to see task that is involving anime like naruto, bleach and such i am strong anime fan and i have done much in that area which include, watching anime, playing games and such so seeing a task related post will make me even happier. I will also like to see task that talks about the planents and our solar systems, most especially the pictures tht go with them, a very nice sight to behold. i am so happy to the crowdholding community for giving me the oporrtuniy to do many things and explore.

For now i really don't have any task at hand that i am working on, except those done by others in which i am trying to help them out, i will definetly use these in the future to tell others about my projects and also if i have any crypto related events to work on. And i dont think i will experience any dificult since the process seems easy and straight forward to complete.

I think it's great to allow members to submit their own projects and if they are anything as interesting as the projects we already participate in then we are on to a good thing. I've had a look at the sign up form and it all seems simple enough to send something over. Once I've thought of something to add I will definitely be happy to submit a project.

I think the submission of the application is quite straightforward and simple. The options are also only two which makes it easy to decide; either a contributor or working on a project. Again, I don't think there are any problems encountered when submitting the form.

Will I be willing to reward the YUPs I have earned so far? No. Why? Because I have to contribute for a long time on Crowdholding in order to be able to afford the standard amount of YUPs needed to award my contributors. Then again, if I am able to afford that amount, I won't easily give out all the YUPs I worked for like that unless I have an excess - say 25000 YUPs at least. On the contrary, I am willing to buy YUPs to place tasks.

On placing tasks, I won't place one unless it is going to help the Crowdholding platform develop or it's a project I have to get reviews on at all cost. I don't see why I have to place random tasks on the platform if it's not going to improve it in any way no matter how nice it looks.

As for the tasks, I already like the ones being posted on the platform day in day out. They should keep coming. Other tasks I will like to see are ones geared towards getting the YUP on more exchanges, improving the value of the YUP token and how to make Crowdholding a full time job for members - or some of them if not all.

Agreed. I'd love to have a CH ideation session on increasing the value/liquidity of YUPs.

I love this very much, i will be very much willing to place ads here with my yup and also buy more, but still working on the project to the stage that it will be good enough to be publish here, and i will publish it here once am done, looking forward to having a great time with everyone here.

This new concept of the contributor is great and I will maybe promote my blog but the form have many useless questions that we have to fill up.

Also, the form for a contributor and project is the same which make no sense. It will be a good way to have important questions for the contribution to fill up and if need more information you can always reach back to the contributor

Thanks for the feedback, makes sense regarding the line items. Will talk with dev about making this improvement. In the meantime, I was checking if you had finished submitting as a contributor, and didn't see it complete. For the time being, you can skip any line items not relevant and the application will still go through. Once you do this we can make you live to promote your blog.

I'm thinking of what to place on crowd holding task because have not been working on any project recently, however I will be glad to contribute to any tasks placed here,I lobe YUPs and I will love to gift out YUPs to friends and families and as a rewards for tasks, I will love to receive Yups as well for any task done here. I  will love to see task that  are exchange related projects and more of blockchain.

Oxu Remini guru

I'm curious about that. I'd appreciate it if you answered.
I did not understand the difference between the user tasks section and this project section?
Does this field only apply to a project? do I share a task in this section about my profession?

Or will I use this console when I want to create a task to track my twitter or medium addresses?
Example :
I have a mission to comment on my articles in my Medium or Linkedin networks. Will I share this task in this console or in the user tasks section?

I'm confused

In summary, I can say that;

In fact, sharing a project here will require some professionalism. It will bring you additional burden. The quality of projects and views will initially be low.
We will see this better in time.


The topics I want to see are;
Social media shares should be weighted
Social networking networks such as Reddit, Medium should be added
Of course, the sharing should be based on CrowdHolding for me, because we should introduce a lot of people to the crowdholding.

Hey Oxu, let me answer your questions.

"I did not understand the difference between the user tasks section and this project section?"

Right now for project and contributor is a way to categorize, and the line items are currently the same, but we will look to change specific line items or hide ones only for projects. We made it a quick hack to test this new idea, that is why current line items are the same when you apply to get listed.

"Does this field only apply to a project? do I share a task in this section about my profession?"

As mentioned above, it is the same. Go ahead and fill in the necessary line items you feel relevant, this allows us to see what contributors are filling out to make appropriate changes in the future. Also, make sure your logo is your avatar photo that will show as the icon. Under description, it makes sense it will be your professional bio and why you want to place tasks as a contributor.

"Or will I use this console when I want to create a task to track my twitter or medium addresses? Example :
I have a mission to comment on my articles in my Medium or Linkedin networks. Will I share this task in this console or in the user tasks section?"

Your Medium and Twitter pages will be shown on your project page so users can check you out if you choose to fill out those line items. The admin console is used to place tasks and can track the activity. One good example of having comments be put on other social media (example comment under a blog) is from this task: https://www.crowdholding.com/project/356/task/940/comment-what-yo...

Cyril is tipping rewards to users who also put their comments under his blog on Publish0x as well. This is a good example of having users growth hack to help promote your blog article. When you create a task, you can select the item (admin can tip).

Once you submit to get listed as a contributor I will make you go live. Thanks for the questions!

I have a question to the Crowdholding team:

I wanted to submit a project that I am not an official member of some months ago. Back then that was not admissible. I reached out to the project team and reccomended them to have a look at the crowdholding platform, the admin thanked me for the advice, but in the end they never got listed any task on crowdholding sadly. So now my question: is it possible to post tasks for a cryptocurrency by not beeing an official member of this particular project, and use a referal link or similar?

Generally I would regret if the quality of the submitted tasks would become low just in order to increase the number of tasks. On a business perspective I understand, you have to increase the demand for the YUP token by having lots of applications. Well in some way I just answered my before mentioned question, but if you could answer me nevertheless, maybe there are other folks who are interested to know as well.

Ethan Clime guru

Hey Thomas, I apologize for the miss with your application. Let me start by answering your first question:

"is it possible to post tasks for a cryptocurrency by not being an official member of this particular project, and use a referal link or similar?"

100% yes, in fact, I see a "contributor" task creator also showcasing new projects they like. As we allow hyperlinks, getting feedback to a new project can also support traffic clicks via a referral link. So a contributor can also be a referral marketer.

For example, let's say a company is offering a referral of a 1$ for every app download. You can place a task that gives feedback regarding the signup process and first thoughts on the app itself. Your hyperlink would give you a referral, but it would also be a fun and engaging task that ads value for that business. You can even share this with that company your results which adds to your credibility as a community advocate. There are endless ways of creativity for tasks, so I do look forward to seeing what approaches you will attempt, and always happy to give advise.

Fill free to fill out the line items necessary for you and submit a new application. And I will make sure to approve it on my end. Thanks for the question!

I attempted to sign up. I currently don't have a logo, which is required for registration. So far that is what has prevented me from registering. Additionally, some of the other registration fields seem a bit irrelevant to contributor tasks. I think it might be helpful to consider profile details that are most relevant for contributors.

I am likely to post tasks. I am now debating how I'd like to utilize YUPs for my tasks. One is an idea for a project I am submitting to a design challenge, another is crowdsourcing information for a Publish0x content strategy highlighting the crowdholding community.

I am considering purchasing YUPs. My original intention before finding crowdholding was to see how much crypto I can earn without putting fiat money into the economy. I might just stick to my guns and maintain a "slow and steady" approach.

I'd love to see design thinking / human centered design type tasks and projects, which - now that I've written it - might just be the direction that I take for my contributor project. I guess we'll see where it goes!

Cheers Thew, agreed about some of the line items are irrelevant as it's also intended for projects too, so we'll look to either hide or put (optional). As for the logo, fill free to just add your avatar photo and this will be just fine... Once you submit will make sure to approve you to have access to the admin console.

3 months ago

Great. I'm slowly working toward something that might be worthwhile to post tasks on. If so, I'll likely trade some other coins for more YUPs to use. Keeping my hopes up that all keeps moving forward!

I didn't encounter any problem it was smoothly done and the flow of submitting the application was fine.

For better development of project I am willing to reward YUP and also willing to buy more YUP

I love to do social media task like

Twitter.          LinkedIn 

Facebook       reddit

Telegram

This is the first time I've seen this type of task in terms of users.
If you are a project person, this will be quite useful.
The flow of application submission was very good, I did not have any problems, and I would like to personally post new suggestions on food transportation.

The flow of submitting the application was fine.  And it's interesting to finally get a look at the publisher dashboard.  

Lore below makes some interesting points - but I see no harm in giving it a try.  In some ways this makes CH, in this context, the opposite of sites such as Steemit, and Publish0x.  Both of which attract a lot of very low quality content with people chasing free crypto, so having to pay to post will likely keep the majority of that out.  i believe Ethan mentioned the minimum reward a user could offer was 50 YUP, but the dashboard is currently set to a minimum of 5000, which could be a tad too much (particularly if the value of YUP rises).  

I did suggest before in the Telegram that it might be an idea to seperate user posts away from the main page (a "Wild-West" section) in order to maintain a higher degree of quality, and perhaps allow for faster (automated) processing of user tasks.  Generally when individuals post online they like to receive as instant as possible gratification, I'm not sure how long the approval process is for tasks, but I've heard mention before of 3-4 days.  That said, we don't yet really know what kind of quality the content users might post is - if any at all - so again, I see no real harm in experimenting with it.  

I'm definitely up for submitting a few test user tasks to see how it goes.  Both from earned YUP, those purchased, and in particular with those earned via dividends.  If I were too though, they would primarily be for marketing purposes, and/or for raising awareness of crypto projects I support (including Crowdholding).  

It's definitely a brave move, the results of which, only time will tell...

p.s. I don't like to brag, but 3 out of 4 of my posts over at Publish0x (having only joined up 48 hours ago) have been among the most popular. So let's not assume that users will necessarily just post trash (though it may not be Pulitzer winning). :D

the issue with experimenting is having to spend time and resources on it. And on top of that, a few tasks were published already to gauge the interest for this feature and with little results.
Regarding Publish0x and quality of content, writing a blog post and a task for a crowdsourcing effort a two very different things IMHO. It may not be trash, but will still be irrelevant

Tim Prior guru

I totally understand your stance. On the dividends too. Moving too far away from the original vision could be dangerous. People seem to enjoy the site as it is (I do). But I'm still in favor of giving it a try. If t doesn't work it can ultimately be revoked.

In regards to your points, it looks more like we were given access to the existing publisher dashboard, rather than a custom one having been put together. I'm sure some work was involved though.

And I agree on blogs being very different. The idea of how to approach a crowdsourcing task is definitely more challenging - particularly if you're not directly associated with whichever project...

I am personally not a big fan of this new feature, here is why: 1) From what I have seen so far, user tasks are often irrelevant/amateurish and deviate from CH original mission (help startups and provide real value, not literal jokes) 2) Contributors become projects in the system, so now we have project tasks, user tasks, and blog posts and they all share the same data structure 3) User tasks still need to be checked before publishing (extra workload for the team) and I'm pretty confident they will further lower the quality of content, although arguably they might increase variety. 4) The minimum amount required to publish a task is 5000 YUPs, and as we can see from the leaderboard it will take at least 2 months to gather that sum, so I don't think many users will actually have enough to post anything unless they buy. 5) I can just go on Reddit or quora and get much better answers without paying a dime

Ethan Clime guru

I do have faith in our high badged users, especially gurus who have seen first-hand many types of tasks. So limiting tasks to just high top users will be better quality than newcomers coming in (unless they buy YUPs which supports our volume). I think we attempt to test this approach. If someone comes on buys 100K YUPs to use for tasks and places the monetary reward and it's a poorly constructed task, we as users can give them feedback to tell them how to improve the quality posts. So the next task they put together will be improved. We shouldn't be afraid to call out an admin if they really made a poor task that doesn't make sense. And for calling them out with constructed criticism we will be earning from the reward, they will learn to improve their future tasks.

In addition, admin users similar to Cyril (viabletoken), is a good example of an influencer wanting to use our application for their clients. In a way, you are paying our users to publish on our website to get attention, help and work support. Agreed about lowering the task reward, and you are correct that there is a good chance content quality will be lower. But from me seeing our regular users' overtime improve the quality feedback content, I see this happening too with the future contributors. It may start lower quality in the beginning, but it has the opportunity to bring more variety of tasks as you suggested and more paid or earned YUPs to be given out as a reward (improves volume). And in time content will improve just like our users content has. I see the pros out ways the cons to at least give this a try and then improve on it.

Staunch believer in the power of the crowd and blockchain.

For some reason there was an error when I submitted saying it was too long or something so I am not sure it went through.  Filling out was very easy and straightforward though.

 

On a personal note, I am wondering if I can submit tasks as a contributor for non crypto related projects.

I will be working on my Masters in Education thesis this year which will then be used to earn a Ph.D in Education with the ultimate goal of publishing my dissertation.  I will be conducting case studies in my own classroom where I will combine different teaching methods from different countries to find the right balance of a holistic and globally minded edcuation model.  I think CH can actually work very well to help this.  I could potentially gather real school experiences from people all over the world and crowdhold ways to combine them together which will then be implemented in the classroom.

Is a personal project like this possible with this new system?

Hey Randy, hasn't gone through yet on our end. There is a bug that if the image is too big, it creates a 404 error page so in the works to fix it. So just make sure image is the recommended size. Once submitted I'll give you access. You can also use your avatar photo for the logo line item. Look forward to seeing your tasks! We also made the rewards lower to a minimum of 1000 YUPs to place a task.

Dean Walsh guru

Don't listen to me because of who I am, I'm nobody like everone else.

Submitting the application was ok, no real problems. But needing two images with precisely specified sizes was a bit of a hassle, I wasn't exactly sure what to put under 'project users' and I didn't know which fields were mandatory (a little star next to the ones you 100% need would be nice).

It is possible that I might place tasks using the YUPs that I have earned, although on balance I think its is slightly more likely that I won't than that I will. Whether I would buy and YUPs to place tasks I suppose depends on my experience using ones I'd earned and whether it seemed worthwhile, but probably quite unlikely.

I would like to see social media sharing tasks because they are quick and easy to do and a lot of people might write articles some place or make videos or whatever and want to get more eyeballs on them. I would also like to see tasks which might unleash people's creativity like 'make a cover image for me' or something, even though I couldn't do anything like that myself.

I would be most likely to post tasks about sharing articles I've written.

Also I would like to say that I like this new feature and its a great idea!
