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

The @c-squared account will place a 12 Steem Bounty on this weekly contest post, published every Sunday.

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

Head on over to @abh12345's blog to learn more about contest scoring and sign up for the curation and engagement leagues in the comments of the most recent contest post!

This post does it for me this week. I love all art-in-process posts and this is a great one.

That three life sized African animals could be made of wire and intricately beaded in one week is quite amazing. The animals are so life like and caught in mid-run. I love seeing how this was done and reading the story behind the work. Excellent post in all regards!

I'm picking this one for this week:
https://steemit.com/naturalmedicine/@naturalmedicine/natural-medicine-editorial-how-to-make-herbal-oxymels-beginner-friendly-recipe

I really love this idea of how to easily make a healthy herbal recipe. It's so simple! So often I see recipes in this genre that take months and lots of ingredients. I am so glad to see this for beginners since we really need the help.

My pick is https://steemit.com/photofeed/@bettynoir/silver-body-paint-photoshoot. I liked the post because it was explained what was done to achieve the finished effect.
A neat body painting technique with metallic glitter in prominent spots of the lovely model’s face.

Hello @c-cubed,

This is a great idea to get people engaged on this platform. Thanks for doing such a super job. I've read a few of the posts you re-steemed. They are all very good and I picked this one to comment in depth.

https://steemit.com/music/@buckydurddle/anna-mercer-singing-gabriel-faure-les-berceaux-cradles-op-23-no-1

The reason why I picked this one is that I too am a musician myself. I love hearing the accompaniment of the pianist accompanying Anna in this opera piece recording. His accompaniment has regular beat moving in the background to help Anna produce that opera piece in a confident manner.

Opera music is different from other popular song singing where there does not need a lot of body movement and emotions expressed to get the singing out. So Anna does a good job with her breathing and diaphragm movement to make all the sounds very deep and clear, especially in singing some of the high tones. Without enough air, sounds become flat but she is able to hold the tones in good depth, even in long duration.

I think she has potential to become one of the great opera singers as she continues to pursue in this field.

Here is the article I read and enjoyed :
https://steemit.com/fundition-bv8u7v43t/@celestialcow/building-a-super-adobe-home-in-lombok

I have traveled to Southeast Asia, and made it all the way to the Gili Islands, Indonesia - from here is a short boat ride to Lombok. I'm also a big fan of building homes in new ways. At first when I saw the image I thought it was a machine 3D printed cement home. Read the article I liked how the use sandbags and then covered them with plaster. This is a very cheap and affordable way to build sustainable housing. Something that not only SE Asia needs, but people around the world too.

Thanks for curating this post!

yeah this definitely looks like an easy way to build an energy efficient home. Just FYI to claim a share of the bounty you have to leave a comment on the post you have linked as well. cheers

Seeing the picture, it immediately caught my attention. Seafood has been a part of my diet and my family's. It reminds me of the place where I used to work and I always bring this kind of food to my home. Fresh stuff like this is much delicious compare to those frozen and canned that we can buy from our supermarkets.

Most of the city-dwellers envy those people who can easily access to this kind of food and I am among those privileged for this and I am happy for it.

I am going with this post

https://steemit.com/art/@romanie/the-suitcase-art-object-2019

I love this entry a lot. The art work was so captivating. It didn't feel real. It seemed like magic. And when i read further to look at the process of arriving at the wonderful art work, i was speechless. God bless the artist once again for sharing.

It was Amazing😀

This post by @watersnake101 about the underground cemetery of Nagcarlan was amazing. The photos told the story of times long ago, when people were killed just for speaking their minds. When I see places like this, I always wonder what other people walked past those majestic doors.

I really enjoyed this post - https://steemit.com/beautifulsunday/@watersnake101/theundergroundcemeteryofnagcarlan-beautifulsunday-z3j7cs3sah

A tour of the old tombs, I love revisiting the history of the human race and try to imagine how these things were build and what people were thinking at the time, facinating

I liked Thor: The Dark World, Such a Family Matter as I have watched the first Thor movie but did not watch the second. @artgirl review has given me the notion that I should give this one a watch as well.

This article, which introduces the seafood market and has a wide range of products, attracted my attention. Seafood is very important for our health. I would like to thank you for this post.
