We’ve retired "The Beast" post

There are 177 upvotes and 734 COMMENTS! Our computers groaned as all of those beautiful comments loaded. I was spending at least an hour scrolling down hunting new links. Enough was enough! So I posted THE BEAST JR. just for some much needed housecleaning.

Community Engagement Challenge ends
Tuesday, July 18, 2017

Do you want to track our progress?

Click the spreadsheet where you can see who is participating. People with a pink line are in danger of being disqualified! I am not publicly naming them because this is not about shaming anyone. This challenge is about personal goals, consistency, best practices, and community building. Please be respectful. Life happens, and that's good too.



to be equally distributed among all participants who successfully finish the challenge.

I will continue to accept donations to sweeten the prize pot until July 18th.

All successful participants will have their name entered into the randomizer.
The first name on the list will be delegated 5,000 STEEM POWER for the week that I'm attending my son's bootcamp graduation (July 23-30). This is roughly half of my account strength!

So let's get Community Strong!

Now then I'd better start a new comment thread because I was running out of space.

This is all @dreemits fault:


My husband is like, "What the hell is with all the ass photos!"
ROFLMAO. I'm laughing so hard my stomach hurts.

When you click on a speadsheet and your butt's puckered up..."Please don't be pink, Please don't be pink".

Note to self: Don't look for butt puckered up GIFs. It's not worth it.

DAMMIT FRANK, you made me look

You do realize for the next few days when I am scrolling through my replies I am going to see this reply, right? This is one of the first things I saw this morning. Nothing like morning coffee with a side of ass.

I'm laughing my ass off over here!
Coffee with the side of ass is a great way to start the day as long as prevailing winds blow favorably. :D

Hahahahaaaaaa, are you taking commenting lessons from @sift666?? He's the ass poster!

I wonder how @sift666 feels about being called the "ass poster" LOL

I wish notifications were working right now, because I promise he would let us know with lots of them, LOL

Now that you have told me I will indeed - but keep in mind the correct term is arse not ass - I did a post about that!

Why, lol. Why! Dang, I tried to get the other images out of my mind and now I have this.

HAHAHAAA I couldn't resist. Bad Meredith, BAD!

hahahaha I can only imagine what you found

Well, @merej99 decided to post under your reply of what was found. Hopefully, she doesn't decide to post the whole lot, lol.

I'm trying to behave but this is too much damn fun.

I had to look at this for a minute and I was thinking, "what is going on here"?...Bamn!...Face Full Of Butt.

Just looked at the! You have put in so much work just to challenge people to be better. That's so amazing!!! I think I will hit my posts, but still trying to get in as much reading and comments in by the 18th. So, I disagree...I think your challenge was quite hard enough, thank you! :)

HAHAHA!!! You're sure? :D
I could turn it up a notch the next time around ;)

I'm going to have to stay up til midnight to make it (several nights in a row!) So, yes, I'm very sure. Ha! It's been a good challenge though.

I haven't written you off yet :) We're gonna take it as far as we can and see where we land!

Well thanks for the encouragement! I keep ticking away at it as I can.

Thank you for all the work, time, and lost sleep you have put into this project. You just might hit 10k posts by the time it's done!

Would you believe that my sleep schedule hasn't changed much? LOL
I'm a chronic insomniac and usually only require 4-6 hours of sleep on a good day. AND I'm so happy! My refurbished laptop came today. You know what this means??? I have TWO computers to play with now. bwahahhahaaaaa

One for each hand!

Saw my name in pink, wondering why I'm in danger of being disqualified?

You scared ME, @kylek717 - I just checked the spreadsheet and your name is not in pink. LOL I use different colors to highlight daily diary entries in case I need to go back and check something. You're good You only need 2 more posts and 250 more comments with five solid days to go! ;)

I could swear it was in pink for a little, but something may have loaded wrong on my old ass computer. Sorry to scare you haha i was pretty frightened myself!

I'm not letting go of you that easy ;)

I really appreciate what you do for the platform and the community, you have to be very committed to take on this great job, congratulations for the thrust and effort that you put daily to this challenge
Thank you very much, my dear friend
Have a great day

It's 43 people (if I include myself) @jlufer. This is amazing and really cool new-to-me people have discovered the beauty of interacting and building community. You and I have been doing this for quite a while now. It is a blessing.

@karenmckersie - you are definitely ahead of the game. I'm pretty sure you're getting close to that 500 comments mark too. You're entitled to a day off, love! Enjoy the after glow of your ONE YEAR STEEMIT ANNIVERSARY!

Thank you for the update and continued support.
"posted 3 hours ago" good grief, get some sleep :-)

What were you doing up that early? LOL

me? I saw that this post was from 5am LOL, I was counting sheep until 7:30 :-)

This is on my tô do list severalbof my post are missing, thanks for the update

I'll take a look through the beast again @kubbyelizabeth. Be sure to put any future links specifically under your header at I'm also reviewing all posts before they get listed on the daily diary to make sure they fall within the challenge guidelines. So far yours have been a-okay :)

I will do a better job doing that, so you don't have to go diffing :)

Super happy that I am still in the race dear!

You are well ahead of the game @progressivechef. Post count is just about at minimum and then you can concentrate on those comments and finding more incredible Steemians to follow :)

That's great to hear dear! I've actually refreshed my 'following' list, i've unfollowed the dormant ones and added new ones that i recently discovered!

Aaaaand the light bulb goes goes on. I've been wondering how to go about refreshing my following list I gathered during my surfing the feed days. Was it really just last week? When this challenge kicked the board out from under me?

Off to clean out the Tiki Bar off riff-raff and half empty steem tumblers. fires up sand blower

It is indeed very important to refresh from time to time! Your home feed will be more interesting with great contents!
Thanks for your comments!

“Figs are delicious with soft cheese and ham, Toast is quite scrumptious with butter and jam, Eggs are improved by parsley and salt, But milkshakes are best with strawberries and malt.” ― Angelica Banks, Finding Serendipity 🍞

Absolutely well quoted dear! These combinations are just amazingly good!

That is what I'm hoping to achieve. In time :)

still yellow...mysteries abound in the steem pit!

I'm confused as to why this is still highlighted...I thought I'd replied...however it does give me an opportunity to inset a chefly quote of my own. thank you for the compliments...enjoy as you will never taste this exactly as it is again. I don't do metric...hahaha

Yup. I've done it too. Unfollowed EVERYONE including whales and started from scratch. It was great to have a "fresh feed" and of course, quickly add my favorite people. I didn't have to unfollow them but I did it for posterity. lol

Oh if it only was that easy for me. I have yet to decide on many if they are indeed my favorites...or not. I found myself having to check each out in another tab. Barely half way through the As...and this challenge takes up so much of my time! ;p

et tu Meredith? I just figured out how to remove the yellow pall from the chef's reply, at least it worked after I upvoted him. Now I've already upvoted you...perhaps I should see what a downvote will do? ;p I would't dare...your words look wonderful on any backdrop!

one more try...because I'm just that way! ;)

bah! Must be the algo...certainly not I!

Either that or it is meant as a stickie note for future reference...whales are to be inclusive in my it.

But some whales feed on plankters such as I...don't they? :-0
...must improve upon my cryptotic flutterbye-stroke...smiles away...

Wow we're getting there! Gear up for the finish line! 😊

We are definitely getting there! And with a huge majority still in it, I'm beginning to think this challenge wasn't nearly hard enough. LOL hahaha!!!! Just kidding ;)

I'm thinking the comments are going to end up being the deciding factor

Quite possibly so but it's gonna be a heck of a ride getting to that finish line. :)

WOW awesome stuff!! Well done to those 43 people for sticking the course! Keep at it. That prize pool has literally doubled haha!

It's pretty amazing @enazwahsdarb
I'll be looking for your posts! We've got a days left to get it done! :)
