Good day dear Besties.

Sure your day has been exceptionally splendid! Thanks for being part of our great community. Bestnaija cannot exist without you all. You really are the very best.

There is a topic that has kept resurfacing frequently very recently and it has to do with our improved content strategy. We want to share and pride in only quality and reliable and original information. The benefits are both short term and long term.

The Reasons
We frown at fake news. We discourage plagiarism. We encourage quality information sharing as these will add value to our members and help build trust and credibility.

Because of these, we would like to clarify the following:
IMG_20180405_212158_495.jpg

PLAGIARISM is a crime.
It's the act of copying other peoples works and using or presenting them as your own (similar to theft) and without giving proper credit to the source or original owners. Not right, right?

The Way Forward:
For communities like our own, it is unavoidable that we copy or reference content from other websites. These contents - texts, articles, videos, images - are results of hard works of other people. To use them with global best practice, it is imperative we give credit to the source of such intellectual works.

How To: Referencing Articles From Other Websites
To do this properly, the following are the best practice.

When you reference (or copy) an article or piece of text from another website, you must:

1. Modify the subject/title to your own words

2. Introduce the article or text with an intro paragraph expressing your own thoughts before pasting the copied piece of text

3. If you like, the copied text or articles may be best pasted between the [quote] … [ /quote] tags to show it is being quoted from another website.

4. And finally, the poster must give credit to the source. The minimum expected here is to mention the name of the source. Meanwhile, it is appropriate to submit the link to the original article.


Those are the best practices for quoting, copying or referencing text contents (news, articles, etc) from other websites.

Original Contents - The Best!
The best form of contents is Original Content. Original contents are those generated or typed or concocted by the poster himself in his own words. This gets the best ranking because of it's uniqueness and quality.

We encourage all Bestnaija posters to:

1. Post original contents in their own words, or
2. Retype all copied contents in their own words before sharing or
3. Follow the above 4 guidelines to properly reference copied and pasted contents from other websites.


In the case of non-compliance?
We shall NOT ban anyone for doing that. But such submitted content or post may be deleted, or modified or at least demoted.

Thanks for your anticipated understanding.

From Management.
The Bestnaija

Received email dat bestnaija has improved. Well sure I can see and I feel impressed.

Im also a paid-to-post writer on hubpages and wealthyaffiliate blog.
1. Something confusing here is that is bestnaija premium upgrade monthly or annually or for life?
2. Another confusion is that somewhere u wrote that premium member get 1000coin for original post in another instance u wrote (25-1000) which one is which. Or the coin amount depend on the length of the post (be crystal clear)
3. There should be reward for post pageview (either 10coin for every 300 pageview a post generates meaning a post with 1200 page view should have 10x4coin addition)
4. There is no reward for social media sharing (e.g 5coin for every 20 article shared to social media)
5. Bestnaija lacks advanced social sharing tools e.g addthis, shareacoholic, sharethis, sumo, etc
6. A comment that is not sentence worthy does not help boost any forum SEO. Adjust d comment terms no wonder articles on this forum are rarely seen in google search result.
7. What plagiarism tool is embedded in bestnaija to prove transparency rather than accepting/rejecting post based on mere human sentiment.
8. What visible monetization does d forum rely on for sustainance besides membership fee ( there should be monthly income/expenses report for transparency purpose to prove bestnaija is worth d time of forumeers/forum-lovers)
9. This comment isnt intended to undermine d admin's vision but to add positive contribution (aftrall d owner is he who introduced me to blogging in 2014) :mrgreen:

Glad to have you back, @Godknows.

Sorry this reply came a bit late. Working under the hood for some time. All your queries would be answered, at least the very important and relevant ones.

Thanks. And hang around as someone else takes this on. :good:
