    A minimum score of 1000 points in the Engagement League is required to be eligible for prize payout.
  • Five x 1 Steem prizes will be paid out weekly to five randomly selected users who satisfy the above requirements.
  • The Engagement League measures your engagement in comments and looks at other metrics including number and diversity of outgoing votes & number of witnesses voted for to give you an engagement score. PLANKTON/SMALL ACCOUNTS PLEASE NOTE it is possible to achieve the minimum score of 1000 points even with very low SP / resource credits but only if you have voted for a good number of witnesses.

Congrats to all and thanks!

Thanks for the random STEEM @c-cubed! Always appreciated, and I hope to get back into the groove of things and actually do more with your comment contest.

Congratulations to everyone of the winners, and for the rest of you who were rewarded with a random act of kindness. :)

Good to see you back, Glen!

Well, thank you, @melinda010100.

I've been around, just not necessarily commenting as much as I was. But I was on Musing, reading plenty of blog posts to try to stay up on what everyone was talking about, and more or less dealing with life and enjoying family for most of December.

Now it's January, a lot of all of that has died down (including Musing for now), and so there's more time to actually be seen. :)

At any rate, I missed a couple of these posts and look what happens! A nice surprise. :)

I knew you were over on Musing. I tried, but couldn't see the attraction. I hope it paid off for you! But it will be nice seeing more of you over here, you have been missed!

Well, that's nice of you to say. From my perspective, though, I think things have pretty much continued on their merry way with or without me. Which is fine.

However, it is good to be talking to you and others and trying to get back into the swing of things. Gets me out of my own head, which is a good thing now and then. :)

Musing did pay off. I can't remember exactly what the Musing numbers by themselves were, but because of Musing, posts and contest winnings, I was able to earn over 900 SP in three months. That amount may not be a lot compared to what quite a few people seem to be doing here, but it's more than most, so I'm okay with it and wish I could continue it.

So far, though, Musing hasn't been upvoting, hasn't indicated if it will or not, and not enough people upvote otherwise. So, while I do enjoy answering questions, it's not going to be the growth vehicle it was unless Musing gets the delegation back.

Just like blogging, vlogging, dliking or Steemhunting, I don't think Musing is for everyone. I don't even think it's for a lot of the folks who are there, actually, but to each their own. Hopefully, there's more than enough niches to go around in this STEEM community.

You will be really grateful for that 900SP when the price goes up and it gets harder to come by one Steem! I'm so glad it worked out so well for you. I'm sure it affected your rep, too, and that is always good!

It's too bad Musing didn't do a better job of planning ahead. After listening to Ned's interview today, I think it is pretty clear that Steemit will not be doing many delegations for a while. Although it sounds like they are doing a good job of moving forward.

I'm working hard to gather Steem while the price is low and I can still afford to. I see great things ahead for all of us!

I take it you listened to it live? I've been waiting to see a post of the recording but haven't seen it yet. Might take a while to post, I would guess.

So, Ned specifically talked about delegations? Interesting. Did he say whether or not they would pulling the rest? And did he say why? Did he state what they're intending to do with the STEEM they're powering down and why they're doing it?

I can wait for the recording, too, but if he talked about any of that, and you can recall what he said (or make sense of it, since he doesn't always address things in a straightforward manner) that would give me something to go on until I can hear it or read more about it.

I'm certainly ready for those great things to happen, and I think it behooves all of us to gather as much STEEM as we can while we can. It's why I've wondered what people are doing when they complain about the lack of STEEM. That's not been the case for me, so it must certainly be there and available for others, too.

I did listen live. I have been setting an alarm so that I don't forget. I didn't take any notes and can't repeat the things he said, though. I bet Pensiff will have the link up tomorrow. I have found Ned to be pretty straight forward, he has been answering the questions that are asked. I have gotten the feeling that he has been isolated from the Steem community and is almost surprised to find a helpful, supportive, hardworking bunch of folks out there. Just my opinion. He seems to be enjoying the Discord interview format and says he will be looking forward to being there more. I am actually liking the guy!

I knew you were over on Musing. I tried, but couldn't see the attraction. I hope it paid off for you! But it will be nice seeing more of you over here, you have been missed!
