CONTEST - THANK YOU ECONOMY WEEK 8 | 10+ SBI SHARES

The Thank You Economy - Week 8 with 10+ SBI Shares

Yes that's 10 Shares!!!


It's That Time Again!  

Time For Your Weekly Dose Of Heart Felt Thankfulness  



The Thank You Economy has turned into a fun and engaging project and every week I'm meeting new people, finding new communities and awesome ways to participate and connect with other Steem users.  Last weeks contest was great. We will be giving away at least 10 shares of SBI and the engagement level was phenomenal, with over 122 total comments and 15 entries.  We've got some pretty cool stuff going on this week too!!!  

I just want to Thank Everyone again who has been participating, and resteeming the posts. This week we have a couple sponsors and additions to the contest.  So a huge thank you goes out to @ecoinstant an awesomely fun and engaging sponsor who is working on a Small Fish Games initiative and sponsoring 2 shares of SBI, @freedomshift from the Curation Circle Creed (#ccc) for 1 SBI (maybe more), and @simplegame bringing us some awesome fun on the blockchain with a whopping 5 SBI shares!!!!!  

What is The Thank You Economy contest all about?

An Attitude of Gratitude - The Thank You Economy is simply a way to say thank you to someone who has helped you, influenced you or blessed you in some way in the Steem community.  It can be tough getting started on Steemit, and the people who have been here for a while realize that.  After all they were new at one time as well.  What I realized about the Steemit community was there are people helping us new guys all over the place, but what can we really do to show our appreciation back?  Not much....

When you are new about all you can do is say "Thank You," maybe give a post a resteem to the 100 followers who are not bots, and a small dust vote.  Those things can add up especially if they have a lot of followers.  That's where the idea for the Thank You Economy contest arose from I wanted to do more to say thank you.  

Maybe I can do more.  It might help to give them a little added exposure in a contest and possibly a share of Steem Basic Income, which will pay them over and over as long as they are posting content.  I thought there might be others who wanted to do the same, not to mention it's fun.  

Just saying thank you to someone opens up all kinds of opportunities to interact with each other.  YOU CAN THANK ANYONE, anyone who has helped you and made a difference in your life, you could even thank @ned for helping develop the steemit platform, now if he won it would probably be a waste of a good SBI share, he usually declines payment for his posts.  

LET'S HAVE SOME FUN

On to the Contest Rules 

The Base Contest - We'll keep this simple.  

  • Leave a comment on this post.
  • In the comment tag someone who has helped you or influenced you on Steemit use the @coinsandchains format.
  • Then briefly tell us why you chose them.

That's all you have to do.  (upvotes, restreems and follows are appreciated though)

One thing, please do not tag bots or alt accounts.


The Prizes and Winner Selection: Here's where some twists happen

4 ENTRIES WILL WIN THIS WEEK!!!! That's pretty good odds..... 

  • Three commenters will be randomly selected by the amazing prize wheel I found. The account making the comment and the account tagged in the comment will receive one SBI share each (4 total shares).  
  • @ecoinstant will also select the most interesting or heartfelt or well thought out or most engaging, thank you note for one SBI share to a recommender and a recommended.
  • I will also give an upvote to each valid entry, but that does not amount to much.  Upvote your own comment if you would like, or if you have a @dustsweeper account it might help.  

WAIT THAT'S JUST 8 SHARES.....  

So We are going to have TWO Bonus Rounds!!!! 

Bonus Round 1: Community Participation 2 winners!

Anyone who is participating in ANY of these Engaging Community Groups some are represented by our sponsors is eligible for an additional random drawing.  

Communities:  

All you need to do is Add a Tag to your comment entry, if you are participating in multiple communities each community counts as an entry!  Please use the Following Tags.

Bonus Round 2: Another chance to win SBI

@freedomshift has generously added a participation bonus, one SBI share for 6 entries that qualify. 

@freedomshift has adjusted the rules, these entries will now be cumulative over 3 weeks. So when we have a total of 6 entries over a 3 week period they will all be added to a drawing for an SBI share. I have to say that @freedomshift is pretty awesome!

We are at 3 valid entries, so we really need 3 entries this week!!!!!

@freedomshift: To encourage people to join #ccc, I'll offer additional SBI shares for those who enter the contest or other contests in #ccc based on 1 SBI for every 6 valid entries (200+ words, use of #ccc, reference to the creed).

Here's what you need to do to Qualify: (we had 1 last week we really need 3 this week!)

  • Create a post for your entry,  200+ words following the #ccc guidelines found here
  • Be sure to use #ccc as one of your tags and include the reference to the #ccc
  • Please include a link back to this contest as well.
  • Comment on this post with the name of the person you want to thank and a link to your post
  • This comment/post will count as your entry into the main contest also.

This is an awesome bonus, and it adds a chance for you to earn a little on your post as well. Thank you @freedomshift for doing this.

All of this means that you could win up to 3 shares of SBI and One for the person you are saying Thank You to!

Just Incase You Don't Know What SBI Is.

In the interest of saving space you can learn more by visiting @steembasicincome.  It is a pretty cool project with several people working on it. The brains behind the operation and main sponsor is @josephsavage #steembasicincome

This week I would like to thank @chrisroberts for being an awesome steemian, he has a number of different ways to express himself on steem and many of them have helped me shake off the shackles of 'niche' blogging and do new and interesting things!

He used to run a daily limmerick post, and would reward users that responded in limmerick. I am the beneficiary of an untold (soon my sql skills will allow me to find out how many!) sum of prizes from that daily contest, and it was the motivation for much of the poetry I have done on steem, including the most recent haiku bot battle. Previously to steem and these interactions, poetry was something that I did privately, hidden in a closet most likely.

Thanks for being you Chris!

·

Awesome pick, and a music man too. Found me someone new to follow.

·
·

Cool, followed you too :) I haven't been posting much for the last few weeks... I'm knee-deep in the official #steemmonsters lore-writing. Our deadline is fast approaching, then I'll be back to songs, sketch comedy and general merriment!

·
·

I have a friend who I talked into joining who would be awesome at it. He's been a dungeon crawl, etc. Game Master for years. He wanted to enter one of the big contests but it took a month to get his login, so it was over. I haven't been able to get him interested since. He went on for close to an hour of all kinds of different ideas he had about factions, groups, colors, etc. Basically said it was eerily similar to magic and another game combined....

·
·
·
·

The community part of steem monsters is awesome. I'm not sure tje actual gameplay is going to match expectations, we'll have to wait and see.

·
·
·
·
·

It may not, but most gamers are pretty hardcore so it will probably go pretty well as long as the systems don't glitch, or demand doesn't crash them.

·
·

Your balance is below $0.3. Your account is running low and should be replenished. You have roughly 10 more @dustsweeper votes. Check out the Dustsweeper FAQ here: https://steemit.com/dustsweeper/@dustsweeper/dustsweeper-faq

·

Thank you for the plug. Those were some good times indeed. I despise haiku.

·
·

c'mon, @haikubot... I lowered myself to your level here. :D

·
·
·

Beautiful! We should start a new trend #teasethehaikubot.

Go around making sure our comments are exactly 17 syllables long. You may have thrown it off by adding periods to the end of each line sequence. @haikubot generally likes to break lines mid-sentence, I've noticed.

·

·
·

Thank you so much for your wonderful comment, much appreciated.

·

Thank you so much for
Your wonderful comment, much
Appreciated.

I'm a bot. I detect haiku.

·
·
·
·

I think my last comment usually works. #teasethehaikubot

·
·

You nailed this haiku! Haiku bot is so lazy! I applaud you though.

·
·

but haiku loves you, what else would it do, besides pick at and love you

·
·

I'm trying again; I must outsmart this dumb bot... Or am I who's dumb?

I am back again and I love doing this. I am going to get a thanks to someone that is doing a lot of stuff here. He gives good comments back and puts out great content. @blockurator has been a great member here on steemit. He works hard on his post putting out really great content even if it only earns a few dollars. Each time I read his post I feel like I am learning things. From how to write better to info on great crypto project or about things going on here on steemit.

I am in #payitforward #Redfish and #CCC and I will do another CCC bonus post if allowed I didn't last week cause I was already in there didn't know if I could join it twice.

·

That is a great one to pick, I just read one of @blockurator's posts about an hour, it was pretty awesome.

You are definitely allowed to do another CCC post, I guess I should have made that a bit clearer. We need a couple more as well to execute the bonus.... Hit a few of your CCC buddies up. That will give you 2 entries, which gives you a 33% chance.

·

This is awesome. Thanks @stever82 for the vote of confidence. I really like this initiative. I'm going to have to come back when I have the time and really learn all about it. Got to get to work.

·

Please do submit a "qualified #ccc entry-post - valid and cumulative over 3 weeks now.

·

Well my friend you need to enter the contest....
You should try to engage with your comments, people here will help without being asked, if you engage.

There is one man here on steem who commented on one of my first posts and has been there ever since, helping me along the way. His name is @janton. The thing is that is all he does. He helps people. He spends hours of his day just commenting on posts encouraging people and offering help and advice to whoever seeks it. He is a pillar of the steemit community and never leaves anyone hanging. He is doing this the old-fashioned way. No bots, just interacting with everyone he can. He is not based on the material he comments on, he only wants to offer support and answer questions when asked. He is active on discord and a great contributor to our community @steemitbloggers as well. I really hope you consider this hard-working man, so he can get the recognition he deserves. All you have to do is take a look at his profile to see how interactive he is. He has over 16,000 posts!!! Thank you, and good luck to all! Then let me take this time to personally thank @Janton for all the hard work he does out there. We on Steemit are so thankful for what he does each on every day. Keep it up good sir!

·

My friend, I can wholeheartedly agree with that one for sure. Sir @janton and I converse almost every day, and have developed what I would consider a friendship on steem. Not to mention that he kicks everyone's butts in the Engagement leagues.

·

I counted 172 words - just a few more to make 200 for the bonus round ...

·
·

Updated :D tha thank you!

·
·
·

That is awesome!!!!
Do you participate in any of these communities? Each one you use counts as an entry for the other bonus round too.

·

Please read A Simplified Guide and Update to #ccc carefully and acknowledge with your comment or question there.

HI @coinsandchains great contest! Forgive the silly question but is this and will this always be a weekly giveaway, If so I would like to add it to my Steemit cheat sheet for redfish to help get them off the ground

Secondly, I would like to nominate @heelsandmuffins I recently came across her profile and I think she's hilarious and is a great addition to Steemit. An SBI subscription would be a great way to get her started on her journey and keep her here, we can't keep losing great authors :)

·

I don't know if there are silly questions..... lol
I hope to keep the contest going, It went really well last week, and I would be honored to be listed as helping people get off the ground. Be sure to check out a couple of the communities highlighted in the post many of those can help as well.
You are right she is creating some great content.

·
·

Lol Some steemians esp on discord aren't happy with stating the obvious or repeating themselves so I'm weary of asking sometimes. Thanks for the recommendation i'll be adding it to my cheat sheet :)

lol glad you agree! Its always great when you find gems like her account, i feel like I have onligation to shout about it

·
·
·

I'm not real hard to get along with. I'm a technical person who has had to deal with a lot of non-technical users in the past, so I tend to be fairly understanding. It's like the user you ask to reboot their computer, and 10 seconds later they tell you ok it's back on. Then you have to explain that the power button on the monitor does not reboot the computer.... (That has actually happened more than once.)

·
·
·
·

LOL You have a lot of patenice, most IT guys are very sarcastic and short on time, thats why I love that show the IT crowed where they really take the piss out of them. I am kinda one myself so It hits home pretty hilariously

·
·
·
·
·

I guess I'm going to have to look that show up, I don't do a lot of TV. My patience is typically very good, I had to learn a long time ago, not everyone is like me and what seems simple to me, may not be simple to someone else.

The person that I would like to compliment today would have to be @abh12345, whom you have already mentioned above. This is a person responsible for massive user interaction on a daily basis and the engagement league has only grown and gathered pace since i first came across it. The levels of engagement from it's users every week is on the rise and with more people getting involved this has spread across the whole site. It's people like this who are keeping people involved and interested.
#engagement

·

You picked an awesome one, I have a lot of respect for @abh12345 and what he does for the community.
The EL is awesome as well, I saw you getting up there pretty high yourself congrats.

·
·

So what your saying is I can't lose this week......Nice one.

I've seen your name up near the top as well so obviously you keep fairly busy on here. It takes a lot to be in the top 20 and it's only getting harder every week. If you look at the scoring this week compared to last week's, the standard has jumped massively. The score that was third last week would only be 11th now which says a lot about the level of competition.

lol, Well.... I do the random part, coinstant likes to pick his favorite comment, so I just kind of roll with it. It tends to make the contest more interesting and increases the "depth" of the comments...

·
·
·
·

Sure, random....wink,wink...nod,nod...... gotcha!!

No only messing. I just enter a lot of these for the fun of it really but anytime that i can pick up a SBI share i will be happy about it. I love the project and the fact that so many people are using them to push engagement and help out other accounts is always a good thing. I would love to have a hundred shares at some stage but until then i will keep trying and commenting. Have fun.

·
·
·
·
·

LOL, I'm the same way with SBI, I also like the fact that you actually have to do something to get it to pay you. Yep a hundred + shares would be great, do you use dustsweeper? It has increased my payouts on comments quite a bit.

·
·
·
·
·
·

Ya in fairness that's why sbi is such a great project. I only get a couple of cent per post but I only have about ten share right now. If I can get that up to 100 then it will make a much bigger difference.

I've never used dustsweeper but I have come across it. Most of my posts earn more than the threshold so I don't think that it would actually do anything for me but maybe I have that wrong. As far as I know it balances out your posts so that everything under the threshold earns enough to get payed out. Maybe my posts don't get enough I'm the comments say to get payed and dustsweeper would get them higher.

Dustsweeper, bumps your comments. so if you get an upvote on a comment for .01 you don't actually get paid for it, so it will bump it above the "dust" threshold to it pays you usually about .028

I want to use this medium to pour out my heart felt appreciation to @ecoinstant for the huge support he gave to me and I know he will continue to support not only me but others as well. Those who are truly in need of a change.

He's a kind of guy who is everly ready to engage with you intensively, understand your problems and still have fun with you.

He's full of surprises and really showed it to me after nominating me as one of the #Smallfish game winners. It was a whooping sum.

So am greatful to him for what he has done for me as well.as others and happy to come across such a wonderful person in this community.

#Much love.

·

I feel the same way my friend, @ecoinstant is a pretty amazing guy. I had to do a quick shout out to him myself this week.

·
·

That was nice of you my friend. It's always nice to show some appreciation to people who have done things for you.

Thanks for bringing up this contest.

Hmmm ... who to pick this week. There is so much going on here at Steemit its hard to choose someone. This week I will nominate @onefatindian for the simple fact that everytime I see his user name I laugh and laughter is important.

·

Hey @rentmoney,

Happy to make you laugh lol
Thanks for nominating meeeeeee!

Damn, this is a long ass post to read. LOL

The order rotates... like a rotisserie chicken...

Awesome .. thanks for the SBI share !

What is the benefit can i get by becoming whitelisted in minnowbooster

·

Why would you ask a question like that on a post about a Steem basic income contest? It lets you buy a higher vote from them....
I would suggest asking in their discord. If you are just spamming, it doesn't bother me, but spamming is a great way to get blacklisted by more than one group.... Then you typically don't get whitelisted.

Hey @coinsandchains,

Thanks for this contest.

I nominate @crystalhuman.

He's an incredible resource, a giving and caring individual, and finds amazing posts to highlight for the community, by way of @postcurator.

He literally gave away dozens of rare Steem Monster cards, asking for nothing in return. Awesome guy, and I wish him all the best!

Cheers,

I'm going to take a moment to make a nomination myself this week. The last several weeks I've been having loads of conversations with a great steamian. He's been super helpful, given me tons of ideas, introduced me to a couple communities and helped me win a contest or two. Then I was surprised to see a 100SP delegation on my account yesterday.

So I want to send a large THANK YOU to one of our awesome sponsors @ecoinstant

Hello! this is my first time here @coinsandchains!

I want to say THANK YOU VERY VERY MUCH to @cronosclocks for being a beautiful friend, and for invite me to this amazing world called Steem Blockchain. I love you girl!
·

Glad to meet you @camiloferrua, @cronoclocks looks to be an excellent steamian, and I like the nice play on words in the username.
By the way, congratulations on winning the Dlive logo contest, that is completely awesome. You pulled off a great logo.

·
·

Thank you very much! @coinsandchains, It was a very fun contest, and yes... @cronoclocks is an excellent steamian and person, she likes photography very much and she could buy her first camera thanks to Steemit.

·
·
·

That is a pretty cool story, being able to buy a camera, which should help her earn more on steemit, Hopefully it will turn into a nice snowball effect.

·
·
·
·

Yes, I know that's how it's going to be. I'm also working on doing the same, I want to make good pictures with a good camera.
