Welcome to the burn, baby
In a move to lower neoxag availability and increase demand, every post that now has the neoxian tag in it will automatically take a 5% hit to their rewards.
The 5% beneficiary city-tax from the rewards will go to @neoxianburn and this will be used to buy up more coins from the market. This, coupled with the 50% reduction to regular rewards should (hopefully) see us rising the prices in steem-engine.
Of course some users weren't happy with this, to which a lengthy discussion ensued in our discord server. Rest assured we are only trialling this, and what can be done, can also be undone. We'll be monitoring it closely.
We now have a City Posts section!
Because of the new change with neoxag and the automatic burning of 5%; big stake curators have chosen to curate in a new channel called #city-posts on our discord. This is where a bot will automatically put in the post of anyone that uses our neoxian.city forum. The chances to get big stake rewards are high if you use our forum.
Again, we are committed to the price and stability of neoxag!
Welcome to our newest city Dragon, @xawi (again!)
Neoxian city dragons keep a watchful eye over the atmosphere in the discord server when the big bosses are away. They have the highest stake in the city, and uphold the city-philosophy in a way that is a guiding light for newcomers and regulars alike.
@xawi is our newest Dragon, and has entered our round table sometime this week. Please give her a warm welcome.
Outstanding Citizen award
Trainee Dragon @raymondspeaks has taken it upon himself to offer his 10% earnings reward at the end of Sunday night, and merge it into an honour which can be bestowed on city dwellers for going above and beyond the call of duty. Make no mistake, this is an award that will be given to people for helping, sharing and giving, rather than taking and selling.
The prize will be no less than 1000 staked neoxag but will grow as he grows in stake power. Outstanding citizen will also get a daily upvote from him for an entire week
This award cannot be earned, it can only be given -- by that it means you can nominate someone, but you cannot vote for yourself. If no Citizens are chosen then the pool will roll over to the following week.
This weeks winner is @TurboBro for being a most excellent, and dedicated citizen.
Her most notable actions this week were:
- Working hard within the bad posts section, and keeping a strict watchful eye over spam, harrassment and plagiarism
- Chatting lots within our discord and making people feel welcome
- Buying coins from the market and staking them
- Being a most excellent citizen!
Congratulations TurboBro; you win 1000 neoxag stake from @raymondspeaks + a 100% upvote from his account for every post and comment you make the following week.
This is now the sixth week @raymondspeaks has done this, and that has been 6,000 neoxag stake he has given away.
To clarify -- you'll need to be in our server to be a Outstanding Citizen, an invite is here: https://discord.gg/RkvBGdS

Check out and get started on our Steemit packs in the City School
Our city school is offering free steemit starter packs for those that are active on our discord
Why not treat yourself and get a totally free course? You might actually learn something completely new. It's over two hours long and packed absolutely full of content. Done by someone that knows his way around this stuff.
All courses offered right now are absolutely free to city members. Why not utilise the skills of someone that has known crypto since 2013? :)
We are one of the most active discords on Steemit!!
Neoxian City is one of the most active Discords on Steemit from what I have personally observed, and what other people keep telling me. We are active for the most part all around the clock. Our residents span from Australia right over to California; so our timezones cover a massive 21 hours!
Come in and say hi -- we don't bite :)
Speaking of which we are an ever growing Discord server. We've had many members join us recently, but few have staked their claim to citizens in such a short period of time. Please pop in and say hi to:
Well done for keeping it real with us guys and keeping chatting! Here's to your growth (and ours).
Invite your friends!
Maybe it's time to think of a role for yourself?
Where do you fit into the City of Neoxian?
A lot of people come here and get sucked into the friendliness of our server. Some people want to take on roles in the city, others just want to chat and have a good time. There's nothing wrong with either!
What we haven't seen many of though is those wanting to create new roles and responsibilities for themselves in Neoxian City. Our Dragonmaster Neoxian is always open to new ideas.
Do you have a special talent? Let us see! Come in and see if you can do something for us -- we encourage growth here. What benefits us, also benefits you.
Our curators regularly scour the whole of Neoxian to find the best and sometimes most undervalued work to send into planetary orbit with our humungous weighted curation trail. If you observe our tribe we have one of the best trending pages and that is because our administration team weight the trail down with their HUGE votes.
These are our picks:
Please note: We only support original content here.We will exact vengeance with extreme prejudice on plagiarists and spammers. So we want to see you unleash that creativity of yours. When you create you get better at what you do. When you plagiarise it is a wasted effort, and we don't like wastefulness or laziness here.
We also take our tags seriously. So please try and use the relevant tags as we will only vote on those with them. We won't be voting a picture of your cat with SPT for example. SPT is for Steemonsters.
Our best picks of the week will be featured on our weekly newspaper highlights.
