The Movies & TV Shows Community has been experiencing some rather exciting growth in the last few months, going from 1,500 subscribers to over 2,205 seemed like a change that took place over the span of a single night. I've been really happy with the amount of passionate people that have been joining and contributing, and I look forward to the future this community has.
When I created the Movies & TV Shows Community, I didn't want to control or put any limitations in place that felt like it restricted the types of content people posted, and for the most part I feel that has really helped the space flourish and produce a wide variety of content. For example: there's no requirement on language, you are free to write and create posts in any language you feel comfortable with. The aim is to have a diverse community that can curate and support good content here on Hive, removing restrictions such as language and ensuring all are welcome.
Eventually, we aim to start encouraging content of other languages and ensuring they're supported the same as English posts. Right now, I believe we do a really good job at that, but there's still more we could and plan on doing. One of these improvements is to gradually build Hive Power here on @moviesonhive and begin actively curating content of all types, and once at a comfortable position, begin offering delegations to particular users that we feel are really supporting the community and deserve some help.
Moving forward, we do want to begin adding a few basic rules to the Movies & TV Shows Community. These aren't anything that will restrict the types of content you post, but will just serve as a basic foundation to what we expect to see when curating, and what types of content we'll simply not support, or downvote or mute in worst case scenarios:
- Plagiarism of any sort will be downvoted if rewarded, and muted.
- Off-topic content will be muted, please ensure your post is related to Movies & TV Shows.
- Posts with links to free streams/and or downloads to movies or shows will be muted.
These rules will be found on the Community page. They're subject to change as the space continues to grow. But again they shouldn't interfere with your posts at all.
We do not have any content specific rules, so you're free to post your own videos if you prefer recording over writing. We welcome features, reviews, opinion posts, and contests of your own. If you are running a contest of your own, feel free to reach out to us with a @moviesonhive tag or message us on Discord; we'd be more than happy to contribute and raise awareness of your contests while curating them!
What Do We Expect?
Ultimately, we don't really expect anything. We have a simplified structure in regards to what we find exceptional content, and what perhaps doesn't qualify when it comes to curation and contests. We naturally enjoy posts that have taken the time to use correct grammar and punctuation, as well as posts that have a diverse use of relevant images (screenshots from the movie or show you're reviewing, for example). That said, the above doesn't necessarily apply to video content, since we understand that the main focus is in the video and providing personality to your content.
Personality is something we highly enjoy, and we love to see posts in which people really display their personalities and preferences. While this is not a rule or requirement, it's simply a preference of our own, due to the increase in interaction and support a post with identity produces.
