25 sbi prizes for no self voters!

in competition •  13 days ago

cup-1010916__340.jpg


I want to share some love.


Lets start 2019 how we want it to carry on, sharing is caring.

The rules to this are simple and straight forward. To enter you must have made =

As you can see I sit at 6.6% self votes, which I think is pretty fair, though everyone has their own ideas on that and it is subjective and open to individual preferences.

I would also like to award 10 sbi to people/users of steemit based in Venezuela also, and will be seeking advice for whom from @crypto.piotr as he is running a project to help said people.

I see little point in being on here just to take, and enjoy giving, so this is part of my new years resolution I made to myself, with regards to helping others that may or may not have less than myself.

If there are not 25 steemians who come forward with 0% self votes, the remaining sbi (steem basic incomes) will be added to a different award next week, I just have to think one up.


  • To avoid people applying on the 7th day, this post pays out the sbi on the 8th of January 2019....... At a time to be determined by me. (when I wake up or lunchtime Poland (GMT +1)


So what you waiting for?


Stay awesome my friends and remain classy. @shepz1 is over and out. (till the next time.)

Please resteem to get the word out.

EDIT = wandrnrose7 was awarded the last one tonight.

How about you start with not buying votes. Then you can move on to not self voting once that is accomplished. That would be a lot more honest way to go about things, since you're tag is "Let's be honest time". Because doing it the other way is backwards and a false virtue signalling as far as I'm concerned.

·

You are entitled to your opinion and I am entitled to give away what I want in anyway I want to, just because you do not use bidbots does not mean everyone else should not, just saying, sort out the owners not the users Mr witness.

·
·

I will never understand why people think buying votes is bad. People earn SBD and Steem for their posts. Or at least they used to earn SBD. I think at least spending that on, say, buying votes is perfectly reasonable and it's what I might expect someone to want to spend it on.

To me, the problem isn't buying votes. It's buying votes for shitty posts. If you post something pretty good and you want more than 1 person to see it, buying votes is an excellent idea.

Not everyone has the luxury of being able to sit atop the mountain and curse the people at the bottom for trying to climb up however they can.

Hi @krnel, @shepz1, @oh-high-mark

will never understand why people think buying votes is bad

We're on the same page here.

Upvoting bots are one of very few promotion tools people have on this platform. And it really bothers me that big whales and those who follow their mindset are so heavily against them. Obviously without bots entire trending page would be dominated by them so presence of upvoting bots is like a needle in their eye. Only this way common users can be "seen" and many of those power users do not like it.

It may be really hard to find anyone who doesn't self vote himself or never use voting bots. Without them traffic on Steemit would drop to all time low levels. Is that really what we want? To follow our "principles" at all cost? Even if it would means that most people would abandon Steemit?

ps.
I use bots and I self-vote myself always around 24-48h since I publish anything. I give all curators plenty of time to upvote first and then Im boosting payout knowing that I may hardly make any penny, but all curators will get some extra reward.

Cheers
Piotr

·
·
·
·

You think I would be on trending if there were no bidbots? No. The top whales are selling their votes, not voting for content. If you remove bidbots, those who sell their votes by delegating to bidbots would be forced to go upvote other people's posts, and those posts would get more rewards without having to buy them. More diversity would be on trending, as opposed to just the people who buy votes. That's the reality.

Since when does buying $10 of votes that many people do, get them on trending? It doesn't. It only gives them more rewards. Unless you spend a lot, then you won't get more visibility to end up on the top of trending page.

Earning your way is dead when all you need to do is buy your way. Don't you think people should merit their attention and rewards because they merit it from others giving it to them (from the community), not because they buy it?

·
·
·
·
·

There are what amount of whales on here? 27 is it? Even if they pulled their votes/delegations from bots, 27 trying to manually curate 100's of thousands of people is never going to work.

You are fortunate in the fact you were here early, you are probably supported by orcas and the like with auto votes, like meesterboom is, you can both write about a fish and be guaranteed $'s the rest of us can not.

I only have 1 orca support in v4vapid, and I am thankful for that.
The network mindset on here is a failure when it comes to newer and newer people as there is only 10 votes per day per person at 100% and the more people that join, the less likely they are to get votes from "the tag a friend and network brigade"...

Whilst bidbots are here people are going to use them, especially when it comes to them paying a profit at times.

If the witnesses want them gone, surely it is up to you guys to talk to each other and work a way to rewrite this code and get them gone, that is not something any of us none witnesses can do.

How this turned into a bot debate in the first place is beyond me!

·
·
·
·
·
·

How you dragged me in to your debate about people who can write shite about anything, a fish was it? And get auto votes.

What are you saying then? That I shit post?

·
·
·
·
·
·
·

No, I think your posts are excellent, just using old members of steemit like yourself as a basis for my theory, that the longer you have been here, the more chance you have with regards to being on "the old boys" network of autovotes, and also how newer people do not have said luxury.

If you are so fickle as to be "offended" like oh so many people are nowadays I will gladly edit your name out., No biggie.

Great comment @krnel, @shepz1

We're both definetly on the same page here.

If you remove bidbots, those who sell their votes by delegating to bidbots would be forced to go upvote other people's posts, and those posts would get more rewards without having to buy them.

I also am seriously worried , that it would mean that some of those whales would decide to leave Steemit and dump their STEEM bringing price to all time low.

Also I don't know how to use SBI because I have won 50SBI last week, but don't know what SBI is. Can someone help me out

Ahah well Sbi is:

@steembasic income (SBI) is a steem experiment to provide members with a basic income through auto-upvoting all of those who buy ‘shares’ in the project.

Thank you and my pleasure.

Damn I’ve self voted 3% but I know what that was, getting my comments past the dust threshold. That .2 is a pain!

·

Man that sucks, though if there are not 25 people apply, we can forgive the 3% and award you 1 sbi, time will tell on this one my friend.

·

use @dustsweeper Send them 0.5steem up and they will vote up all your comments automatically to anove the dust threshold :-)

I find the dust sweeper to be a scheme. Why should I pay someone to then pay me back? Seems odd to me.

·
·

I didn’t realize they were still active!

Hi @shepz1. This is easy as I don't self vote. I think my last self vote was around 7 months ago. I have done one or two in error when posting when the box was still ticked and removed it immediately. Here is my proof from steemworld.org

Happy New Year to you and your family.

Hi @cryptoandcoffee

what made you stop self voting yourself 7 month ago?

yours
Piotr

·
·

There were a couple of things. The vote I see as a tool to hand out to other users. In order to grow it is your beat weapon and I use it to support those around me. The engagement league run by @abh12345 penalises you if you self vote as well. When I first started I self voted as that was the only votes my posts used to get, but as I started to receive comments I handed them all out. I don't believe in small votes so will give whatever I can to show gratitude. I wish I was bigger as I would give generously to everyone.

·
·
·

Thank you for your kind reply @cryptoandcoffee

·

Superb, thanks for entering, and 1 sbi will be sorted for you today.
Our first winner.

Happy new year to you and yours also my friend.

·

Done. :-)

Most welcome bro.

I never self-voted, but then I joined a trail to support content I liked, namely the #freewrite community, and then that trail voted me which led me to voting me. Le sigh.

·

I had that happen to me. Who am I to be the judge? Deal done.

Aw! Sweetness!

Posted using Partiko Android

·
·

I like the idea. However, where this falls short is when you are following a voting trail that votes on your posted material. Other than that, I've not self voted for like ever and rarely do I do it because (1) the payout is small and (2) I want others to get something from me when I vote. So, I pass in one way but fail because of the voting trail. Maybe you will consider this. 8-)

Yes I realized that after I did the post, anyway deal done.

That is nice of you. Thanks for the consideration. Until next time. peace.

Thank You fro running this contest. We were recommended to enter since we post a lot and do not self vote.

·

Most welcome and deal done.

Well, I'm out as it took 4 days to make the last post. At that rate I'll never make 3 in a week, lol!
Edit: Great idea though!

·

Try the 5 minute freewrite by @mariannewest. It's easy and once a day with great people.

·
·

Great people; I agree, but I'm no writer. I'm more of a, shall we say, documentary video maker.

·

4 days, bloody epic post mate lol.
I try so stick to minimum one a day, though my posts are short so fairly easy to do, cheers my friend.

Very nice to see a chalanges like this that can support small accounts.
I am glad to see this. But i will be more happy if i can see some inspiration also to let people vote for each other not just for the trending posts. Because that is one main problem i think. The lot of new account holder they see a posts in trending page over promoted posts by bidbots and they think that is the right way to vote for them.
By the way i also cant enter this chalange because my self voteing % is 6.22 so it means i also boosted my post by myself😊

The lot of new account holder they see a posts in trending page over promoted posts by bidbots and they think that is the right way to vote for them.

Yes that has always been a problem on here, I think trending should be renamed advertised or paid for.

I was in the top 5 on trending politics posts a few days ago, all were boosted by bots, I am not ashamed to admit, as this was all designed a long time before I arrived here.

By the way i also cant enter this chalange because my self voteing % is 6.22 so it means i also boosted my post by myself😊

Me too lol, I have designed a post I could not even win myself lol.

·
·

Actually somehow i dont have problem with the boost by bidbots. I also use bots sometimes or smartsteem. Just lets say many times i see posts that are over bided. That doesnt deserve that much attention. And mostly the planktons and minnows they think that that is the right way.
Lets say some people they dont know where are the boarders😁 They see the 10-20% income and they have capital also and they just boost and bid every day the nonsense.
And the worst is that when you check the account of these guys they even dont do sometimes any upvote for others. 🤔

Posted using Partiko Android

·
·
·

I use smartsteem also, and bots, though I put in/invest real money here every week.
Without the bots I probably would not be investing that $100 or more a week on here.

I see no problem with anyone doing what they want with their own stake, as it is theirs and not mine. Though everyone has their own opinion and that is fine.

Stay awesome my friend. :-)

·
·
·
·

yes that is cool. I am following you your post always have a meaning so dont misunderstand me😉
My own opinion is that i wanna support later some people that they dont have capital but they posts are really cool.
But you are right by the way everybody do what they want😁
Just with 100000 planktons we cant change the world😉
And i am happy if i see these kind of chalanges that they support the community😊
Have a nice day mate😉

You too my friend, have a superb day, and no offense taken here ever. I find it almost impossible to be offended online, as it is too easy to get into arguments of late. And little point in spending negative energy. :-)

Nice initiative. I used to host similar "contests"

Great way to help those who spread the love even though I think it's ok to vote for your own posts as well. But your are the boss - you set the rules.

Maybe in the future you could diversify as to : "who spread the most votes last week"...just a thought. In any case really nice gesture my friend

·

Thanks my friend, and superb idea regarding the spread votes, I will run with that next, thanks for the heads up.

Hello @shepz1, first of all this is a great idea and thank you especially for helping people from Venezuela. I'd like to participate, am eligible as I don't even know when it was my last self upvote, must have been at the beginning of summer.
Here's my Voting CSI 21.7 ( 0.00 % self, 335 upvotes, 186 accounts, last 7d )

Thank you very much, keep up the good work and steem on! :)

Thank you very much, we review a new car every week and own a number of classic projects, this will help our growth, we've followed you and look forward to seeing how you encourage content creators and the further success of this platform.

·
·
·

Superb, added you to my follow list too.

·
·
·
·

excellent to hear and thankyou, do you like cars? we own a few classics, Mercedes, VW and 1970 Land Rover Series 2a

·
·
·
·
·

Yes I like them, more into restoring classic bikes now though.

Though like most people I still drive a car. I used to restore Minis and Triumph spitfires and that sort of thing, difficult to get hold of here and expensive now.

·
·
·
·
·
·

My word, bikes, my Grandfather, I'm Ben by the way used to ride motorcycles he had a few BSA's, he also used to ride in the push bike TT in the Isle of Man. A Mini is our list its actually the one next to the Mercedes in the latest video, we then plan on getting a green XK8 Jaguar. It would be great to see some of bike restorations do you have a youtube channel or any videos?

·
·
·
·
·
·
·

The TT, one of my favorite events. I used to work at Jaguar, and also Land Rover, in fact most car companies in the UK and down to tier 3 suppliers as a engineer. :-)

I don't have a yt channel anymore. I just do a step by step guide on here on the odd occasions, though it generates little interest so I sort of stick with politics posts, boring I know lol.

·
·
·

We've been going to look at this for a few weeks, therefore thank you, and as we were going to send and join SBI we've returned the favour, thank you.

·
·
·

Oh wow, thank you kindly.

Howdy from Texas shepz1! I am a non-self voter and love this contest. Helping the people in Venezuela is especially heart-warming and I'm going to check out crypto.piotr and support him.

·

Hi from Poland, 1 sbi heading your way my friend.
And @crypto.piotr does a superb job on here with uniting people, he really is inspirational.

·
·

thank you sir shepz1! God bless you both for helping so many!

·
·
·

Thank you sir, deal done.

Are you from Poland @shepz1?

·
·
·

No, I am from Birmingham UK originally, though would not live there if you paid me now.

·
·
·
·
·
·
·
·
·

True bro. :-)

·
·
·
·

hi @shepz1

from Birmingham UK originally, though would not live there if you paid me now.

why not? you mind telling me?

ps. so you're in Poland just for holiday? Visit Wroclaw if you have a chance. amazing city

Yours
Piotr

·
·
·
·
·

Wroclaw was the first city I came to and stopped in on the way here 4 1/2 years ago. I drove here from southern Spain.
Birmingham has no-go zones for white people now, and it is a dangerous place to be, and I did not want my daughter to have to grow up in fear, so we live here near Lublin now. I have a farm and a few apartments, so we want for nothing.
In the UK anything you earn is spent on bills, tax, more tax and ever higher bills. £1,200 alone goes in housing tax just for owning a home in the UK, and that is in the cheaper cities.

·
·
·
·
·
·

How do you like living around Lublin?

My Malaysian partner keep saying that she never visited country as boring as Poland. With boring food, boring cities, boring people. She is from Kuala Lumpur (huge population, very fast life) so I could see her points.

But at the same time she mentioned that it's the safest place on earth she ever experienced.

Would you have similar impression so far?

ps. Im moving to Poland in 2 months. Will you be still around? Would be amazing to get to know you closer.

Yours
Piotr

·
·
·
·
·
·
·

I love it, and she is correct, it is the safest place I have "ever" lived as a foreigner.
Regards food, there are now a large variety of Chinese places to eat in, and all other foods from around the world, it was not like that when I first arrived.
I no longer like large cities so it is fine for me, I do get her point though, though I prefer no traffic jams now.

Yes I shall be here forever is my guess. And it would be my pleasure to meet you too.

·

Thank you for your kind words @janton and @shepz1 :)

Hello friend, from Venezuela I send you a big fraternal hug.
I want to say it on behalf of my two daughters and my beloved wife, we send you many thanks, for all the support you gave through the initiative of @crypto.piotr Santa Venezuela, to be able to help my family to have a little Christmas best.
My grandfather said that the grateful man has more opportunities to be happy.

Thank you friend. as we say in Venezuela ... Gracias mi pana.

·

Thanks my friend, you just made my day.

·
·

I regret not being able to participate, I self vote. But normally I do it when the post is about to expire. and it is for strict necessity to be able to generate STEET or SBD to buy food.

·
·
·

I can understand that my friend, and there is no wrong or right in this, everyone has to do what they have to do, and their stake is their own to do that. :-)

I've not self-voted in months. I would rather use my SP to support others and I also help deal with some of the abuse of Steem by flagging. A little extra SBI would help with that.

·

Hey my friend, good to see you around, and deal done, though yours was not showing on steemd so I used a wallet shot instead.

Cheers. Of course I realise you benefit too. I've bought a fair few SBI shares too.

Hey there man! What a nice thing to do for people that don’t vote for themselves out of principle. I’ve done it only by error and in my whole Steemit life I have voted for a maximum 10 articles of myself, in the begining, before understanding how all of these work. Cheers man!

Most welcome my friend, deal done.

Deal done my friend.

Great initiative @shepz1

Please let me know if you would like me to promote this post within our little crypto community. Or do you have enough people engaging already?

The problem is that I'm not sure who is using SBI and I personally never really did (as monetary rewards here on Steemit are not important for me at all).

But I could ask over 20 venezuelians to check out your post and drop a comment.

I see little point in being on here just to take, and enjoy giving, so this is part of my new years resolution I made to myself

It's so funny. I just had an interesting talk with my partner about new years resolutions and we both decided that seting goals works better for us than making resolutions. And now you wrote about it :)

If there are not 25 steemians who come forward with 0% self votes

0% self votes? That's very strict rule. It may be really hard to find anyone who doesn't self vote himself. For instance: I use bots and I self-vote myself always around 24-48h since I publish anything. I give all curators plenty of time to upvote first and then Im boosting payout knowing that I may hardly make any penny, but all curators will get some extra reward.

It really may be hard to find many people who do not self-vote their own posts :(

Cheers
Piotr

·

I know that you are concerned about the Venezuelan community. We have quite a few Venezuelan Freewriters among the freewrite community and I would love for you to include them in your efforts. I have some listed on my daily prompt and am working on updating the list. I don't like to take them off too quickly for nonposting since many have internet issues right now.

·
·

Hi @mariannewest

If you could share names of those users then I will try to reach out to them and engage a bit. If they will be responsive then I will do my best to help them in the future.

The truth is that I already know over 40 people from Venezuela on Steemit and as much as I would love to support them all - I can only do that much. I help those who keep in touch with me and who I know and trust.

So again, please introduce them to me. Especially those who blog about crypto (if you know any) because I may be able to get them some jobs in the future.

Yours
Piotr

·
·
·

I am going to copy and translate this comment and send it to @latino.romano. He is in the country and is leading the Spanish Freewrite and otherwise is taking on leading roles in his community.
I know only too well that it is difficult to support all the ones that we want to support.

·
·
·
·

If he doesn't speak english then it really doesnt make much sense @mariannewest

It would be only struggle for both of us to keep in touch

hope you understand me, yours,
Piotr

·
·
·
·
·

No worries. We can all only do so much and it sounds that you already have quite a group to support.

·

I think I have it covered, or will have when I do the next post aimed squarely at those people, just trying to help as you do, and one way or another, we can make this world better. :-)

·
·

Of course @shepz1

If you would ever need me to help promote some of your initiative then please just give me a shout :)

Piotr

·
·
·

Check my latest post, and see what you think, I would like you to be involved, if you would consider it.

Hi @shepz1

A very nice initiative. Thank you for supporting fellow steemians.

I did not vote for myself (just checked on the link you provided). Also, I think I posted more than 3 times during the past days. I hope I'm eligible for this contest. 🙂

·

Thank you kindly and done.

Oh nice! I'm at 0% self voting. I can send a screen shot of steemworld if you like...

·

I just checked and you are 100% right, so 1 sbi heading your way now my friend.

Thank you! Great contest!!

Nice and easy to win. :-) Most welcome bro.

Thank you for doing this! I qualify :)

And I want to recommend @latino.romano as a Venezuelan who could use support. He is a leader in his community and is helping others all the time. And now, he doesn't have a job anymore and needs to provide for his family. Please do consider him.

·

Thank you for your entry, I can confirm two basic incomes have been given. :-)

Must be years back when i did a vote for the me .
I comment , i do not post a lot , my vote has no value other then my spiritual support . I do not have to spiritual support myself true a worthless vote .
Share some love ?? is there love in SBD ??? is there love in any currency ?

Best of luck and wishes for the upcoming year .

·

Cheers my friend, though the prize is a sbi which is a basic income upvote when you write posts, and as you do not write much, it has very little to no value for you.

·
·

Well , someone has to read al those writings , someone has to comment or reply .
My vote is already worthless as it has no value other then my spiritual support .
To me steemit has no value other then it's content posted by the people .
I don't want followers and votes because i have a fat wallet .
Real power is in the writing not in the vote one can give .
What if your a writer in a world that never reads ? .... what would you live of ?

Steemit is a closed platform to the masses , the masses don't read , they troll on fakebook twatter and reddit . If as a writer i would like to live on sbi i would advertise Steemit some more to the world first .

Not sure the powers that be here care for mass adoption, a lot of them have stated as much.
If they can sit and write any old garbage and their circle upvotes it, why would they care?...

·

Yeah , social media will end with endless selfies and private garbage , mirror mirror on the wall kind of shit . There was a time there was some hope for steemit to be something else .
But yeah it seems that we al just don't care .

LOL , like we al can live of the posting of selfies and shit ,
who will work then to create the machines we need to do so ?
Ai machines ? ...... maybe we should care ....... create a better steemit ?
A steemit that dos not has a power true currency in it's vote or has a vote that
i can adjust in value to what i like to give for a good post , directly from my wallet .
Not true some calculation program making my vote 0 in value .
Maybe to Care and create a better world ?

I hear you, and add to that - this place is teaming up with the devil "google ads" I can only see it getting worse.

I am just trying my luck here since the comments go on forever
Maybe you have already hit the 25 and if so fantastic :D
Otherwise... I have not self-voted since.... I don't know when... it's been awhile...:)

·

To be honest I have lost count myself lol anyway, deal done.

Most welcome.

A hug for this new year that begins @shepz1

·

Thank you kindly, accepted with a smile.

I vote the witness account and so I'm not throwing me hat into the ring here.

There are a stack-load of 0%'ers though.

Nice initiative!

·

Cheers asher, I think we can look past the witness votes and I added 1 share for you just, as this is nearly full now anyway.

Hello! I hope I can join this contest. I also thank you for giving all of us this opportunity! May your account grow more! Happy New Year!

·

I think you just took the last 1. :-)

With basically ten 100% votes available to me daily, I can say that I don't waste a vote on myself, unless it was accidental. I try to find quality content to use my upvotes. 👍

so, let me see if I understand... the 3 necessary post are counted from the 7 days previous to this post, or do I have until the payout of this post to publish them?

·

It is almost full now and the 25 sbi will have been allocated by tonight.

Congratulations @shepz1!

Thanks man, almost numero uno hey.

I don't know how to use SBI because I have won 50SBI last week, but don't know what SBI is. Can someone help me out

·

Basically someone sent 50 sbi shares in your name, every post you make for ever more gets a boost or upvote from that stake.

·
·

Thanks very much. Its really worth it. Have a good one

What a sweet and generous idea! I found this thanks to @mariannewest, who shared this in her latest #freewrite post.

I've been posting once or twice a day for the past couple of weeks (trying to get back into a posting rhythm), and as I usually don't self-vote (mostly because I never think to...LOL), I believe I qualify, if you haven't already reached the 25.

Oh, and here is my vote behavior thingy -

¡Vaya! Es una iniciativa genial, me sorprende y conmueve ese interés en ayudar... gracias por el impulso. Es muy apreciado por mi parte. Gracias @shepz1 y @mariannewest

·

:-) Gracias.

Belated New Year Wishes @shepz1.

I never self voted myself right from day #1 till this day and hence i think i am qualified.

Thank you very much @shepz1 for giving a chance to some SBI to survive here in Steemit!

Hi, it is closed now, though I will be doing it all again this week, wandrnrose7 took the last award today.

I would like to enter this contest. I cannot remember the last time I upvotedmy own posts that's got to be quite a while back. If I have it's an accident because I prefer organically gaining any of my earnings. I thank you in advance for the consideration!

Hi @shepz1 quite a intetesting contest that make people pull their voting. Anyway, i usually focus on Asher Engagement League ..so I prefer to keep myself away from self voting....i have not voted my post or comment in last 4-5 months. And all these days I am a regular contributor on Stremit. ....these things excites me to do better.

Thanks for the contest...

Hi @shepz1, I love your challenge, I do not know if it is eligible because in the test I do not go out with auto votes, but I think I had one today.
Thank you for supporting the Venezuelan community.
Blessings this 2019, and that follow the slogans go for more, in this steemiana community.
