Change they say is constant or inevitable and I agree.
Humans are agents of change and it's why we are able to improve and upgrade.
When we refuse change then we can only blame ourselves for the consequences that follow.
It's no news that flower posts and all sorts of low quality contents have started getting special attention by Guardians and the community.
And I can tell you for free, Old users are more guilty of this act than new users.
A tutorial/orientation is a solid idea, but I think it's a small part of the solution, as there are other human factors that aids spamming and low quality. Some factors such as Greed, Laziness, Level of Education.
Funny enough, a large number of those who enjoy posting these flower and crap post's are Oldbies. Yes, I see lots of old users writing these low quality content and I know the issue is beyond being a newbie or orientation.
There are thousands of post on Uptrennd that will make most new users become quality content writers, but yet we find every reason to put the blame on the newbie tag.
Uptrennd is a place not only for creativity and passion, but also to earn. And the earn part is what motivates Spammers to engage the most.
When the motivation is based just on earning then there is a huge problem, because then nothing matters than to earn 1UP Tokens.
People who know me can testify I won't hesitate to help those in need. But there has to be a balance, while we show so much love, we must never lose sight of the main goal(Uptrennd).
Action they say, speaks loud and clear than words, and I agree. We can keep smiling and showing love, which is awesome, but people will keep taking advantage by just doing what they like.
The focus must be in passing a message across, one that will leave a mark on the reader.
This is why all sorts of low quality must be discouraged. it can't continue for too long, because it's not healthy for our ecosystem.
There are definitive actions for breaking the rules, and I see a huge success in just 3 days of showing tough love to those who want to destroy the photography and nature community.
I love nature so much and it breaks my heart to see these two powerful communities losing relevance, due to the countless number of shitty and crappy, flower, good morning, good evening, low quality posts.
The change must begin with every user on Uptrennd, we must take responsibility for our actions/consequences, and be intelligent enough to know when to do something different or try another method.
A downvote, mute, or warning should be enough to make smart people take action and work hard to correct mistakes.
The Newbie's will be guided and put in the right direction, but they will have to learn fast and take the right steps.
For the Oldbies, it's no chill from me, as I wont even consider a warning, we must set the right examples for those coming or else's we set a bad trend.
You can give a man fish, but can't force him to eat it.
Trenndians are loving people, I see lots of quality posts advising, teaching, correcting on how to make great impact here.
Let us all take responsibility for ourselves here, always be eager to improve, ask questions, work hard, watch what others are doing right and learn a thing or two.
