There's so many neat challenge ideas we could do, it's almost endless.. The limit is our creativity here at the IFC.
It wasn't difficult to come up with an idea for this round, it was difficult to pick WHICH idea to go with this round.

This contest is based on a really fascinating concept in my opinion, and.. There's an almost never ending potential for new and different kinds of quests.

If we do ever manage to run out of ideas, we can certainly do ones we've already done before.. And I'm sure in time we will do some challenges multiple times, yet I kind of doubt we will ever TOTALLY run out of new ones!

Anyways.. Moving on!

This is another "catch up" round, catch up rounds are designed to help new players get into the game or people who haven't won a round yet, so if you have already won a round you can not enter this round.

Our next "catch up" round is going to be centered around the subject of... "Teaching".
Whoever can teach us something new, or teach the coolest, or most unique, or useful or interesting thing wins this round.

I've wanted to be a teacher for a long time, but not the traditional kind of teacher at a government or public institution.
And so far during the IFC I've had quite a few people express that these challenges help them learn new things.. So in a sense doing this contest is sort of fulfilling one of my dreams. :D

However.. It may not necessarily be me that is teaching anyone anything.. But rather, I'm only just helping to inspire or encourage people to learn new things for themselves. Which is still a pretty awesome feeling though!! ._.

So.. Let's share the love and help each other learn even more shall we? :)
Let's take this quest as an opportunity to help teach each other something new, cool, unique, useful or interesting!

I'm really curious and excited to see what you come up with this time! ._. Good luck in the challenge!

And now a moment for our sponsors!

First up is @ats-david who has helped greatly! If you appreciate this contest or just his efforts in general you may want to look into voting for him as a witness at @ats-witness, he does a lot of other cool things for the community as well!

Next is @timcliff who has similarly helped out the contest significantly and who is also a witness who does a lot for the community, so likewise if you appreciate the efforts you may want to vote for him as witness also!

I'd also like to thank @theguruasia who has pledged at least 20 steem to the second and third place prizes and he said he may even donate more.

And @nxtblg who has been regularly resteeming and upvoting our challenges which has been a big help!

Plus one other person who has been helping a lot who deserves some credit is @soundlegion who has also been upvoting the contests regularly.

For this challenge.. If there's a tie.. We will do another round to see who wins.

The winner will be decided by whoever gets the most votes.
The only people who can vote in a qualifying sense are myself and the judges I've selected and we will vote by leaving a comment on the submission that we like the most and say something like.. "I vote for this one" and a reason why we voted would be good too, but is not mandatory.

You have until this challenges post payout ends to submit your post. Though we do accept late entries if you get it in before all the judges vote.

The challenge will finish after 7 days when the post ends and provides its payout cycle and unless there is a tie, the winner will gain the steem, the XP and have a point to go towards their long term win. (minus the 25% for curation)

I've been thinking about the possibility of starting a crypto funded school utilising the democratic educational model (think Sudbury School model).

No real idea where to start but to make an impact on the future we need to support young people. We have to get them out of the 'modern'education system.

We must give them the means to rescue themselves.

What better way is there than block chain technology to build and encourage a truly democratic learning environment?

·

Could we call it Dschool?

That's an awesome idea @joeyarnoldvn !
Just got back from a walk and I'm still processing things and a bit overwhelmed with all the information I've been going through.. But I noticed you post a number of comments here, being very helpful and trying to assist others.. And I glimpsed through your entry real quick, I haven't read it yet.. But.. So far I get a really interesting and positive impression about you. I take it you're an infowarrior? You seem to be very intelligent.

I'm not really a fan of Alex Jones anymore, but one think I definitely think he got right was the name of his "Infowars".. That's a powerful word! And.. I think this is an information war, so information finding will be a critical part of that war. Looking forward to learning more about you shortly as I read your entry!

I try my best to get news from different people and places. I like @Cernovich for example. I like the Drudge. I like Crowder. I like @Stefan.Molyneux. I like Milo. I like to listen to WND. There is probably a list of 30 or more people or websites or channels that I listen to and watch and follow and everything. Maybe more than that. I try my best to to share whatever I like and whatever I feel can to help other people. I do my best to run around to figure out what is most important for as many people as possible. You can call me an Info Warrior if you want but that does not mean I am a zombie, bot, Russian, or whatever. I try my best to come to my own conclusions and my own thoughts and opinions about as many things as I can concerning everything or anything. I try to be as open minded as possible.

·

I didn't mean to imply Info Warrior in a negative light, I think Info Warriors are good, I don't like Alex Jones though nor do I fall on the left or right of the political spectrum. I'm closer to Stefan, but. I'm disappointed he is supporting Trump. It's weird to say too, cause Stefan introduced me to Anarchism and he once liked one of my status updates on Facebook and I freaked out like a fangirl, lol.. But.. Yeah.. I don't support any presidents and I doubt I ever will so it was unfortunate to see him and other liberty minded people supporting another in the long line of occult rulers.

@Stefan.Molyneux does NOT support Trump any more than you may or may not support say Trump and/or Alex Jones and/or others. However, Stefan presents numbers, statistics, logic, reason, evidence, talks about what people said, did, and everything. Stefan tries to stay as objective as possible. Going towards anarchism is too theoretical, generally, currently, as we live in a world of technocracy, corporatism, monopolism, plutocracy, and all sorts of things involving corrupt people, corporations, organizations, groups, religions, countries, and everything. It is very big and complex and ongoing. Yes, individualism can be better than collectivism. If we want more anarchism, more autonomy, freedoms, smaller governments, less taxes, more choices for individuals, for small businesses, we have to get there somehow, step by step. We have to expose the bad people in government, and try to vote them out, and vote out bad bills laws, and call, share, make videos, articles, etc.

Again, Stefan does not support Trump and Stefan says that in his videos many times and you can HEAR Stefan say that many many many many many times since 2016 and others say this too and I hear the pattern of what they say and they make contrasts between what trump is doing with other people. Big things are happening in this world and I was in Vietnam for 5 years and I came back to the USA in 2017 because of what is happening in the USA for the first time in maybe a century or longer...... big great global revolutions are happening and we are all part of or can be part of the big great things as we live in the info wars and everything and we all can make a difference one oatmeal at time like you say and it is good you have the information finding contests and everything which does help and I do not blindfully support Trump or Alex or anybody any more than YOU but I really want to emphasize on big great things that I may sometimes agree with when I see them..... in 2017 in the USA, jobs went up, taxes down, regulations down, etc etc...... and that continues in 2018 even more so..... and so many big things are happening......

And we all can want anarchy, but we need to be more practical in getting there.... because if we are not practical and united, then how can we change governments towards anarchy and away from cancer?

Stefan.Molyneux does NOT support Trump any more than you may or may not support say Trump and/or Alex Jones and/or others.

I'm not sure I agree. Stefan himself has a video on YouTube titled.. "Stefan Molyneux Why I Support Donald Trump" and he's also created a whole website dedicated to defending him. And fawns over him often. I've never seen him speak out against Trump like Trump and ALL presidents deserve in regards to the thousands of innocent people who are being killed overseas, BUT.. To be fair.. I admit I haven't listened to him much for a while. So.. Who knows. I generally appreciate his logic, I think he's a great thinker for the most part, but.. I'm skeptical of most big names in the alternative movements, nothing personal to any of them.. The secret society stuff is deep.

big great global revolutions are happening and we are all part of or can be part of the big great things as we live in the info wars and everything and we all can make a difference one oatmeal at time like you say and it is good you have the information finding contests and everything which does help and I do not blindfully support Trump or Alex or anybody

Glad to hear that! And I agree. I think big things are happening, the powers that shouldn't be can only keep some of this stuff secret so long thanks to the internet and how we can share information now. But.. They are powerful and smart, so.. It might be too late already, but.. I still have hope. I think what we do matters and is important. Which is one reason I vibe with you, even if we're on different pages a lil bit.. I get a good vibe from you and I genuinely think you're trying to help people which I admire.

And we all can want anarchy, but we need to be more practical in getting there.... because if we are not practical and united, then how can we change governments towards anarchy and away from cancer?

I say start with stopping our support of the system as much as we reasonably can and speak out about it and help educate others as well as much as we reasonably can. If you think like Stefan seems to hint at in his video where he claims to support Trump, he thinks we need to sort of work within the system to achieve that, and.. I think that's sort of where we part territory.. I think we need to build something new, not necessarily try to fight or change the old.. But just build something new. Make their old ways obsolete. Hopefully anyways. :)

Do you want Americans to have a physical war with the United States government in order to "Build something new" or how do we "Make their old ways obsolete?"

Thanks for the interesting comment @unschoolingaspie
By the way I like your name.. I was pretty much unschooled and I think I might have a bit of aspie in me as well.

I like your idea in regards to some kind of school on here, though I think there's a couple others who have already had similar ideas? I forgot their names..I think one is steemitschool? I'm not sure.. But maybe your idea would still be different and unique enough to create it's own thing? I definitely applaud your idea! I also dunno how you would go about it, but if you think of a way and need some help.. Lemme know and I'll see if there's any way I can help. :) It's an important issue!

·
·

Thanks so much for the compliment and the feedback.

There are a few Sudbury schools appearing around the UK so maybe I'll reach out to them with my idea.

And yes, me and my children are Aspies and I am unschooling them! What a ride! 😁

I'll look for steemitschool and I've followed you so I'll let you know if the idea grows!

#freethekids

·

You're welcome! Good idea! And ah. I see. If I ever have a kid or kids I will most likely unschool as well! I think we should basically get to choose what we want to learn when we want to learn it and not be forced to fit into a cookie cutter mold.

Cool! I'll give you a follow as well cause you seem interesting. Good luck with your efforts! And lemme know if maybe I can help in some way.

Thanks @apolymask for organizing such an amazing contest like Information Finding Championship. Glad to see that the first season reaches out to the 19th round.

I appreciate you the way you help the Steemians.

·

You're welcome! Thanks for appreciating the efforts. :) Hopefully it extends years into the future as well! :D I also appreciate the way you help Steemians as well with your contest list! And I bet you help in other ways too I don't even know about. Keep up the awesome work! ._.

·
·

Thanks @apolymask for the appreciation.

In the future, I hope that I can help your project (IFC) because It is a great contest and by the way, Now a days I am working on a project based on the Steem blockchain. Soon I will post about it and give some updates. I think my project will help some Steemians.

Good luck and thanks again!

Gosh, that’s so... how can I put it?... so... so vague again... :0/
What is considered as ‘new, interesting and cool’??
I have to think about this one...
What on earth could I teach you guys??? Ehm....

·

It's sort of suppose to be somewhat vague to encourage people to come up with their own unique solutions. And it would be hard to know since you don't know what all the judges know! We're all different and what you propose some of us may already know or have differing opinions about.. But.. I imagine if you think on it for a while you should probably be able to come up with a good idea. :)

·
·

True. In fact, I think I got an idea already. Need to work out the details, but I’ll probaably get it done in time :0)

Have created a Discord account and also install the discord app.
@noor.money

·

Cool. :) I still don't see you on our channel though..?

·
·

How can i find friends ID to invite them?

·
·
·

I'm not sure what you're asking exactly? I think we have a language barrier.

·
·
·
·
·
·
·

@Noor.Money, Steemit may not currently have a built-in way to invite friends, people, currently, as far as I know, through searching for usernames, ID names, like you might find on maybe Facebook and other social networks. But on Steemit, people can follow you and you can share this post by clicking on RESTEEM (AKA share) and then your followers (AKA friends) may and might maybe see it, to see this post here, for example. Now, Steemit is an application of the STEEM network but there are other applications too, like http://Busy.org and maybe Busy has a way to invite like in what you want to do or maybe http://Steeming.com has it or maybe other websites (AKA applications of STEEM) may have what you need and you can Google this and find it. You can find so many things and answer so many questions through Google and DuckDuckGo and more.....

Now, what do I have in bag of tricks that could be taught....

·

I'm sure you've got a wealth of knowledge in there! :) You seem like a pretty smart individual. Maybe something about music?

·

A bag of tricks, AKA the Barney Bag of the Magic School Bus of things we can make today, hehe.

·
·

Really? I've never seen Barney before, had no idea I was channelling him!

This is great publishing and great writing experience......//////////

good contest
glad to read it.......//////////

Crap. Just realized I have not been posting my entries on the challenge threads. My bad!

Very beautiful to enjoy. You teach with extraordinary abilities. The beauty that I have never seen directly. Very beautiful my friend. Thank you for sharing the contest that is amazing.

·

Is beauty not in the eye of the beholder?

This is a rocking contest.Thank's to @apolymask for such nice contest.

·

Agreed, great contest.

Thank's for the contest.I must say one thing that you have become a teacher in a different way your contest is teaching a lot of people to take part in competition and also polishing their work for better.This is a good contest where a late participant also can catch up.Thanks for sharing with us.

·

Who is not a teacher?

Not too sure if my blog was what you were looking for in the competition.
But I figure nothing venture nothing to gain.

I remembered to do a blog this time.

In general, I feel I am continuously being educated or educating another. Even just writing a conversation you can learn new things and share opinions which open doors to new thoughts. Grammarly is constantly educating me on my spelling err's and my grammar.
Something which I heard a long time ago and use regularly when a discussion on intellect arises. "The most foolish among us can ask more questions then the wisest can answer"

Uhmmm I'm stumped. Ah what to teach... I'm trying to think of something not art related. Hahaha.

Hi. You can find my entry here. I hope someone finds it useful.

Here is my entry for this round. I hope you all benefit in some way or another from it!

Round 19 - Catch up!

Oh hey I forgot I already have one written! :D Updated it and here's the link! :D

Hi! Here is my entry :) I hope I'm not too late to enter the championship!

Thanks for the opportunity!
