Legions of humanity arrived a Shinar. These were a people of one voice and one language. They cared for themselves and lived their lives apart from what was once holy to them. They weren't an evil people, but they wanted to live their lives amongst themselves unmolested by the celestials.
The new people of Shinar designed a tower to reach the heavens. They did not do so to occupy the celestial lands. They did it to issue a warning:
Fearful of the accomplishments of the new Shinar people, the god of caelum shattered their minds. The action rendered them incapable of using the language that once made them whole. Their hive-mind fractured, their companions lost, it became an insanity of solitude.
Upon their realization, the once whole people scattered to the winds. They assembled with those of like language and became destined to toil the lands for generations. Humanity was no longer a threat to the fearful deity.

The Hive Ecosystem operates differently than other social media platforms.
- Facebook, Instagram, Twitter all have their own rules.
- Hive also has its own set of rules
- While many of their policies appear similar, there are some that are strikingly different.
If I, or anyone else, comments on your article or introduction post about standards to follow, you really need to pay attention.
- We reach out for the sake of engagement and professionalism.
- There is very little that is more frustrating than making efforts to share this information only to find someone now has a negative reputation because they ignored you.
- If you get DV'd for any reason, please communicate your concern. We cannot improve if we do not communicate respectfully and professionally.
The Word for THIS Week
The word for THIS week is DISCORD (300 POB)
Welcome to the new Season!
- The Word of the Week for this Week is Discord. Discord starts the second round of this season.
- The new season takes place over a six-week period. The first four weeks have their own special word, but the last two weeks represent a bonus challenge round.
- I decided to add a special bonus round at the end of each season. It allows for higher rewards and gives people more time to submit their articles for the contest.
