Hello everyone! Team OCD here with another update on our ongoing Community Incubation Program. The communities are trying their best to keep engagement levels up and are ready to welcome and guide new users. Community leaders/moderators continue to highlight great posts in our discord for some added curation.
We are also pleased to announce that we now have contests that aim to further boost engagement in smaller communities and highlight them for added visibility. Our community highlight of the week is Toys on Hive.
The contest has just concluded and we are pleased with the turn out of entries. Watch out for the next contest! It will be posted soon!
On another note, OCD's support is now expanding to communities outside the incubation program. OCD curators and community leaders are now on the look out for undervalued posts in other niche communities. You can find more details on the new initiative through the first compilation post:
We aim to support communities, help them grow, and allow users posting on genre-specific topics find the right community spaces to interact with like-minded individuals and gain through the focused curation done by community leaders.
If you've started a new and unique genre-specific community that has the potential to raise a lot of activity, provided that your community has no existing similar community yet, feel free to apply for our incubation program - either by writing in the comment section or contacting us on our Discord in the #community-incubation channel. You can get more info about the program here.

What's the one new community you subscribed to recently? We'd love to know in the comments.
We're looking forward to adding more communities that focusing on different subjects to our incubation program, and helping them grow with curation and/or delegations.
These posts aim to highlight the communities as well as their curation accounts that post the curation reports, and if you find a community interesting, do feel free to have a look around or subscribe. They'd be happy to welcome and guide you.
The community moderators/curators are doing a great job trying to onboard and help new users as well as highlighting great content for curation. Users must find the right communities and subscribe to those that interest them, which keeps them active and engaged. 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 or language-based.
