Engaged!New contest format is super easy. Short version: Pick a post recently resteemed by @c-squared that you like. Leave a good comment on the post. Paste the URL of the post into the comments here and explain why you like the post. See below for full rules.
C-Squared also administers a weekly incentive contest encouraging Steem users to sign up for the League of Curation and Engagement - see below under "Engagement League Booster Prize" for more.
C³ - the Curation Collective blog
PLEASE NOTE there is no longer a requirement to sign up for C-Squared contests in the C² Discord community. The bounty payout to contest participants replaces the previous contest structure (there is no longer a reward based on number of comments left on @c-squared upvoted posts).
Engaged! C-Squared Readers' Choice Contest - FULL RULES
How to claim the bounty
Bounty hunters (you the reader!) must leave a comment in reply to this post with a link to a post recently upvoted/resteemed by @c-squared (still in payout) and an explanation of why you liked this post.
PLEASE NOTE To be eligible for bounty payout, three criteria must be met:
- The comment must include a valid URL of a post recently upvoted/resteemed by @c-squared (still in payout at the time the comment is left).
- The comment must include a non-spammy/non-generic explanation of why you liked the linked post.
- A non-spammy/non-generic comment must be left in reply to the linked post as well.
The @c-squared account will upvote comment(s) that satisfy the above criteria, determining who gets the bounty (if multiple comments are upvoted by @c-squared the bounty will be split). The C-Squared admins will review all comment entries and the best comments will receive a larger % vote, thus receiving more of the bounty.
ONLY ONE COMMENT PER USER WILL BE ELIGIBLE FOR BOUNTY You are welcome to leave as many comments below as you want to help highlight the awesome posts curated through @c-squared, but only your first comment will be eligible for bounty payout.
Spam commenters and users who are obviously copying existing comments in hope of upvote and bounty will be flagged.
Examples of comments that would be too spammy/generic to qualify for the contest (this is a non-exhaustive list): "I like this post"; "Nice post"; "Cool post"; "This post was my favorite", etc. What we are looking for is why you liked a post, what in specific you liked about it, how the post made you feel, and in general looking for thoughtful responses that prove you actually read the post and enjoyed it.
Engagement League Booster Prize
In the spirit of C-Squared's mission to encourage engagement on the Steem blockchain, we would like to encourage users to participate in @abh12345's League of Engagement. The league gamifies your engagement stats, generating a weekly score for all participants based on number of comments left, number of users commented on, number and diversity of outgoing upvotes, number of witnesses voted for and other metrics listed in the weekly contest post.
2 SBI PRIZE Up to two users weekly are eligible to receive a 2 SBI share prize just for signing up for the Engagement Leagues for the first time. PRIZE CONDITION: You must clearly state that you came on C-Squared recommendation when you sign up for the league.
To sign up: State your intention to participate in the comments at the most recent contest post, published every Sunday on @abh12345's blog. REMEMBER you must state you came on c-squared recommendation to be eligible for the 2 SBI prize.
If more than two users are eligible for the weekly prize, a random drawing will be conducted to determine the two winners
