OCD Communities Incubation Program - Update #2

in OCD3 years ago (edited)

Time for an update on the Community Incubation Program, we've received quite a bit of new applications and even added a few new ones. For those of you who've started new and unique communities focused at a certain genre that has the potential to raise a lot of activity and doesn't exist yet, please feel free to apply for our incubation program, either by writing in the comment section of these posts or contacting us on our Discord in the community-incubation channel.

Without further ado, here's some updates in subscribers, delegations and new additions since last post:

Communities that we were supporting and got in touch with us recently:

New additions

Communities we're still waiting on/ haven't given us all their info - join our Discord to get in touch with us and for more info! (others can attest that the process is not too complicated :D)

  • Lightpainters United
  • dSound
  • Vimm
  • Foodies Bee Hive

For those not knowing why we're doing these posts, it's to highlight diverse communities and get them some delegation and curation support from the rest of stakeholders. Communities are the strongest when there's a broad selection of different ones for newcomers to choose and find what they're interested in. Since there's no great way to monetize the work community leaders and their curators put behind each we are supporting them with HP delegation matching the subscriber amount they have and rewarding their curation reports so they can grow and reward their curators on a constant basis. This is why in the list above we are linking both to the communities and curation accounts so readers can easily find them and subscribe to the ones they're interested in and help them out with vote trailing or delegations if they want to support them.

Here's some graphs provided by @dalz of the subscriber growth divided between the smaller sub count communities and the bigger ones:



He'll be updating these charts on a monthly basis and adding new communities to it as well. Hopefully many new ones coming in will push the current top communities in the first chart onto the second one. :)

Here are also some statistics provided by @dalz of the cumulative HP subscribing to each community under our incubation:


We're looking forward to adding more niche communities to our incubation program and helping them grow and make the most out of the community feature. Thanks for reading!

We would appreciate it if you want to delegate to @ocdb and earn some daily returns with a low fee which can be tracked on our website and vote for our witness if you appreciate what we're doing on Hive.

Have you stumbled upon some new communities that are unique to the ones above and would like to see them get supported? Feel free to mention them here in the comments or join us on Discord and talk about it there in the #community-incubation channel! Please note that this is only for unique niches/genres of communities, nothing "general original content" or country/language based. Thanks!


We're honored to be included in this incubation program 🙏 Thank you for bringing the #HiveHustlers community on board!!

I would like to bring to attention the
"Shadow Hunters Community"
A very friendly and supportive community.
Where many amazing, artistic and creative Shadow photos are shared.
It is also a wonderful community for those that are new on HIVE to be recognized, appreciated and encouraged.

I love "Shadow Hunturs Community"

Thank @mllg! Your support is always appreciated!


Thank you for your support and participation...🌞🤗 !!

Thanks @annephilbrick! We have done a LOT of fun curation over the past 2 1/2 years, haven't we?

We sure have..!!💕
I absolutely love, enjoy and look forward to see everyone Shadow Photos.

I propose to place the HeartChurch community, a leader in community work, open community for issues of faith, agriculture, sustainability and the common good, with active social projects such as Bread From Heaven and HeartHouse. This community is managed by @darlenys01.




Hello friend, I recently just saw your incubation post, I have created together with a whole team, a community to support all the musicians on the platform, where we are doing weekly contests and paid challenges with the aim of supporting each talent.
Currently we have 4 active tasks in the community, Retro Music, was created with the aim of promoting the music of the 60s, 70,80,90, and so far this week, INSTRUMENTAL EXECUTION, to support all musicians who play instruments, FAVORITE MOVIE THEME, each participant must interpret a song from their favorite movie, and LA VOZ DISNEY, where we have created initiatives for each child to present their singing talent, there we have categories of adult and child , all the Contests mentioned have weekly prizes.

The community we have created is called Live Hive Studios, and the administrator account is called @marvalstudios, this whole team is made up of artists, foundations and external investors who are committed to the development of the platform .., Thanks for your attention.

Excellent initiative we must continue working with enthusiasm, really it would be a great honor for the community of Live Hive Studio to have your support greetings.

I love your proposal, @enriquemarval and they are a group of excellent musicians, they must receive the support of everyone in the Hive community, greetings and successes!

You have all my support for this idea. Greats and incredible talents post in the comunity everyday. I hope that we will be one of the best Hive comunities. Thanks for the purpose.

Honestamente, apoyo esta idea, ya que es una gran comunidad que busca apoyar e incentivar a todos los músicos de la plataforma, independientemente de su edad, estilo o ejecución instrumental.


Here on the platform, tremendous things are happening in the musical area. I have seen the growth of many musicians and singers, including myself. through initiatives like these. I can only say infinite thanks for the opportunity to be part of this project .. we keep moving forward. Successful

Great initiative - what makes me feel good - even my old music community did not made the cut for support to see in the comments that there are even more music communities on Hive as I thiught.

Which also brings be to the issue we have - discussed with @edje often - instead of tons of music communities we should rather join forces with joint challenges etc. - not complaining -will follow all the new communities out there and see how ym community can even help a little bit there.


Right now we at HIVESICIANS Community (@hivesicians) Have 108 subscribers with 92 active user, so we have an 85% of our subscribers active within the community!

We have music creator from different countries that post everyday because we don't have language barriers, even people from other projects like @cabelindsay from Hive Open Mic and @edwardstobia with the Hive Music Festival are within the community spreading the word about our dedicated space to music creators to connect with others musicians.

So it would be really awesome to have your support so we can keep growing out and reach to more creators within the #Hive blockchain.

Thank you so much for all the effort that you do to support the awesome communities within the platform!

Let's keep growing!


If you have any question for us, you can write me via Discord: ilazramusic#2853 or join our Hivesicians Discord Server, we actually have 54 members within it :D

Totally! Even we have our music initiative called LET'S JAM!, the main focus are instrumentalist musicians because there's a lot of initiatives made for singers but there's no one focused on instrumentalist musicians.

You can read the details in here: LET'S JAM! | Release Week! - LET'S JAM! | Closing release week!

Thank you guys for everything!


Greetings, please include the music community in all its glory @hivesicians https://peakd.com/c/hive-178179/trending to your ranks.

Thanks for the support.

Just and necessary the recognition to several years of work of @stemsocial and the administrator @carloserp-2000 tireless worker of the blockchain, also celebrated the inclusion of @naturalmedicina and I dare to vote for the support to the @hivesicians (niche for musicians) that manages @ilazramusic. I wish success to this initiative, that is, success to Hive. Greetings my friend!

Thank you so much brother, for the support! I'm really grateful about it!


It is an honor for MakeUp Power to be included in this incubation, thank you for including us, we will grow together ♥

Agradecido por la mención amiga! <3

Muchas gracias por la mención y el apoyo cariño 💛😘😘

It is good to see that in Hive things are done differently, there is no longer competition between communities, now there is support among all.

I agree with you

This initiative is working SO well.. its amazing to see the ecoTrain community along with others picking up so much more attention and posts.. and great posts too! Nice job @acidyo you are turning things around!

Crazy the number of users... didn't have a perspective on how much people were really evolving into the communities feature. Really nice. This will make a nice addition to when the SMTs release.

I can't wait to see how SMTs will fit with communities!

Omg Make Up power !!!!😍😍😍😍

Hello friends! I am the leader of a growing music project called "Sound Music" (@music1sound) that curates music content and supports musicians on the platform, I hope you can include us as we will soon become a stable community. If you like you can join the discord server.


Exciting times on hive. Good job

How exciting it is that you have included "Makeup Power" in this amazing incubation program, we really appreciate it!

I have two very good communities for you to help, guys.

For the Live Hive Studio team, it would be an honor and a privilege to have your support. This is an excellent contribution.

Hello OCD people, I would like you to support the @hivesicians community which is a great community about music and the people who have posted there are of an incredible quality.

This is the community link:


Hola formo parte de la comunidad #Livehivestudios, es maravillosa la experiencia que he tenido desde que estoy en ella, me siento muy orgullosa de todo el equipo que día a día aporta su talento para hacer más feliz a esta prestigiosa plaforma por medio de la música. Estoy muy agradecida de Dios por permitirme estar a diario con ustedes creando contenido, pienso que oportunidades como estas nos brinda la esperanza de seguir creciendo y aprendiendo, esta es una red social que ha unido muchas personas talentosas y emprendedoras. Sería un verdadero honor poder contar con su apoyo para que la comunidad #Livehivestudios siga creciendo, ya que ha tenido un trabajo extraordinario, de igual forma se que servirá de apoyo a todas esas comunidades que están haciendo un buen trabajo a diario. Mi saludo y respeto para todos ustedes.

Excelente este trabajo de Incubación, el equipo de #LiveHiveStudio nos sentimos muy entusiasmados con esta actividad que vienen realizando.

hola, como nuevo miembro de hive felicito la iniciativa, e igualmente propongo la inclusión de las siguientes comunidades:
Las postulo, no solo por el apoyo que he recibido de su parte en este inicio tan gratificante que he tenido, tambien lo hago porque el valor humano que agregan a la plataforma hace que personas como yo que llegamos literalmente perdidos en Hive, quieran quedarse y evolucionar, gracias a que en cierta manera nos llevan de la mano durante el proceso de adaptación y entendimiento de como se maneja la colmena.

hello, as a new member of hive i congratulate the initiative, and also propose the inclusion of the following communities:
I postulate them, not only because of the support I have received from you in this very gratifying beginning I have had, but also because the human value you add to the platform makes people like me who literally arrived lost in Hive, want to stay and evolve, thanks to the fact that in a certain way you take us by the hand during the process of adaptation and understanding of how the beehive is managed.

Muchas gracias por postularnos cariño, justamente para eso estamos para que no se sientan solos en este proceso, apoyarlos y motivarlos a seguir creando un valioso contenido que por supuesto les apoyaremos por la gran labor de creatividad. Saludos.

A point of concern.....I think you would consider to update the delegation website....as i am seeing it still shows Steem- SBD,- SP...... @ocd

I'd like to take the opportunity to say Thank You, I absolutely love the community concept, and am glad that you are initially focusing on non-general communities. When I go to a book store and want to read on a specific subject, I don't like fining children's books mixed in with technical or automotive manuals. most of the Niche communities that I visit are doing a great job at keeping the community on track. So thank you for the support of these communities.

I have an Alt account that has some unused HP, do I need to do anything special when I delegate HP to OCDB, We would appreciate it if you want to delegate to @ocdb and earn some daily returns? It would only be about 100 HP, the rest I use for small 25 HP delegations to new users I find.

loved the figures. Hive on, communities!

WOW - great job to support the communities!!

Thanks for investing all your time and efforts into this,

and for sure, a !BEER from me.

Ohh, I want beer too 👀

Here you go


Thanks 🥰

Hey @josehany, here is a little bit of BEER from @detlev for you. Enjoy it!

I'm interested in starting Community Incubation Program named New World Freedom Talk. This is what the community will be about:
If you believe in true freedom, if you believe down to your cells that freedom is essential for human life and our survival, if your believe in all your heart that humanity should be free, you were already member of the New World Freedom.

New World Freedom is just 3 words that mean something, something in reality, something that is embedded in our hearts and minds for all times. The New World Freedom is already here and it's something they can never take away.

This group for all humans, we even invite people from the NWO to join the NWF in staid!

Only 1 rule: Be respectful and speak your mind.

For a New World Freedom community, a pure Democracy governance of the community would be required imo. Hive does not yet offer this as the governance is a DPOS heavily influenced by large shareholders. Whilst it is better than most, it is still not good enough, imo. A Hive community could however use a differential governance system. I propose The Matrix-8 Solution.
Check out this thread and comments, and perhaps you would like to become one of the initial 48 or 64 to get this project moving so a DApp can be built then trialled/used for community governance. https://peakd.com/hive-193084/@atma.love/ried94xx178fypb

I’m extremely happy seeing community growth.

I would love to Hive First Discord second approach communities or Hive First Twitter Second approach.

Don’t like seeing zero comments on posts

Excelente trabajo, gracias por compartir esta valiosa informacion

Your 'Community Incubation' initiative/project is of benefit to the platform.
Free Speech Community, is geared towards Anti-Censorship endeavors and may be worth taking a look at for consideration of inclusion with whatever assistance deemed fitting.

Thank you very much for including the Amazing Nature Community in you list 😀 This is sooo amazaing and kind of you ^^


Hello my dear friends "Sound Music" is a growing project that seeks to support musicians on the platform by guiding them on how to develop on the blockchain and show their work on it. We would like you to include this project in your incubation. You can join the discord server if you like. Thank you!



Hola amigos de @OCD. Gracias por tomarse en serio la labor de estimular la creación de verdadero contenido de calidad.
