CLOSED: Round 8: Free Delegations for 4 Weeks

in #contestlast year (edited)

This is my 8th week of giving away delegations to some deserving newer steemians. I will announce the winners of week 7 in the next 48 hours.

Keep telling people to come to this post so I can help them grow. I have had multiple people that a delegation was given to and within the 4 weeks they broke over 100sp! This is great news and shows that people are powering up their steem and probably purchasing a little while prices are so low.

Why am I doing this?

While I understand the idea that the witnesses and Steemit Inc (@ned) were going for with RC's they have had a serious negative effect on our newest Steemians. RC's have handcuffed new steemit members and I am trying to remove those limitations for a select few people each week.

As a decentralized project it's our duty as members of the community to each pitch in and make the project a success. Without the community supporting each other there is no future for Steem or Steemit so this is my way of pitching in a little.

This is a simple little giveaway/contest for those who need some help being able to engage on steemit. The idea is to help people that are running into RC issues which limits the amount of commenting and posting they can do each day. Without the ability to engage it is very hard to build an audience and without that audience you aren't going to have people seeing your content.


Contest/Give Away Rules

  1. You must have less then 100sp
  2. Leave a comment below with your entry, start entry with "THIS IS MY ENTRY" and then tell me how much SP you currently have, how often you post, and why you would like the Delegation.
  3. You must power up your earnings and not be withdrawing them. Want to reward people who are showing they plan to be part of steemit long term.


I want to get people up to 100sp or give them 50sp towards this. So the prizes will be "up to" 50sp and all prizes will be for 4 weeks.

  1. Max prize is 50sp for 4 weeks
  2. Max I will increase your SP to is 100sp (if you have 40sp max prize if 50sp, if you have 75sp max prize is 25sp)
  3. Max for this weeks prizes is 200sp, but only if enough quality original content producing people enter

Who receives the delegations is purely up to me as it's my money. But understand that I'm looking for active accounts that are producing quality Original Content.

Bonus Prize

@minnowbuilder3 will be set to autovote your content for at least the 4 weeks you are getting the delegation. This means a daily free upvote on your posts. The goal of the Minnow Builder Program is to support hand picked steemians who have less then 500sp with daily upvotes.

It would be nice...

I never require upvotes, follows, or resteems to enter a contest but those things are all nice.

Resteems are a HUGE help with a project like this. Getting the offer of free delegation in front of the people that need to see it most is critical. Looking at my list of followers most will not qualify for this offer so I need some help promoting this. Help me help the community.

I would love to see long-form content writers get some delegation. It seems short-form content is heavily rewarded when really we need more long-form content because anyone can write a paragraph, but it takes real skill to write 1000+ words.

We don't need anymore cryptocurrency analysis content, we need hard-hitting actual content. New Steemians with a focus on quality content are really our only hope.

Please also tag me as well. I 100% support any initiative that aims to help retain newcomers.

I am a fan of the arts and long form content producers. But at the same time when finding new steemians to support my focus is on original content first and foremost.

Will make sure to add you on future posts.

Your passion to help others has always been an inspiration. Please tag me as well. My feed is sometimes so full I miss out on upvoting posts due to out of voting power and don't want that to cause me to miss upvoting this post.

Thank you sir! It's always nice to hear that others appreciate your efforts. Have added you to the list of those being tagged. If for some reason you change your mind on that just let me know.

THIS IS MY ENTRY, Hello I have 45.5SP. I Post almost everyday due to restrictions. So, I would be glad if I can post everyday and also reply comments. Also,I would like my upvote to worth something to people with original contents. Thanks for this support initiative, hope I get picked.

Will look closer at the time of selections, but think you will be picked for a 25sp delegation based on your wallet.

Ooh, Thanks for the consideration.

Thank you! Resteemed and in tomorrow's prompt (well, you are in all of them now - but as a feature tomorrow)

Hi @thedarkhorse!

  • you have 523 units and 4 bonus units
  • your rshares balance is 8426720051758 or 4.168 $
  • your next SBI upvote is predicted to be 0.834 $

I have 26,028 / 35,028 Steem Power
I have recently posted 3 to 4 posts a week, I actually do not do it more often because my Mana features are always limiting me and of course SPower
Your help was great so I could work more at Steemit
My only promise is to work to deserve your trust in me.

Please explain the relationship with @bitcoincoimbra and your account. Looks to be 2 accounts owned by the same person, is this correct?

As it is in the profile it was an account that I created for my family to use. With a single objective to discourage the use of facebook and instagrand and to use steemit and its app, we share the same computer and I confess that I entered the account, but it is supposed they are to use it, Soon answering your question the account is of my daughters
If I am doing something wrong it is innocently nothing that is not the reason I mentioned

Hello my friend @thedarkhorse thanks a lot for mention me in your incredible post...!!!

You’re still working incredible well, I'm surprised with your generosity and desire to help others. Congratulations..

I have 107.360 Steem Power, party delegated by someone.
I constantly post for 3-4 days/ week.
I would like to increase my worth of my account since I am going to do this for long term.

107.361 STEEM
(+91.033 STEEM)

That means you own 107.361 SP and have 91sp delegated for a total of nearly 200sp. This is way more then enough to function without RC restrictions. I'm only looking to help people who can't do daily functions like post and comment due to having limited RCs.

Wish you the best, but you don't qualify for the giveaway.

Thank you. Yea experienced that and didn't notice your post.

Thank you for sharing the post. Really feel that resteems and people pointing others directly to the post if they notice someone new who needs help is critical to find quality people to support.

I would like to be tagged 😉

I have added you to the tag list. Thanks for all your support!

THIS IS MY ENTRY, Hello @thedarkhorse I have been on steemit since Sept 2018, I have my percentage at 100% and have 98.126 in steem power. I post everyday and try to upvote others and comment on their post. With doing this I have to watch my resource credits or I run out of them and my vote is sometimes worth a penny but most of the time it is worth nothing. I do not know if I qualify but thought I would give it a try. It never hurts to ask.

99.840 STEEM
(+50.280 STEEM)

You don't qualify right now as you have over 100sp total. Congrats on nearly breaking 100sp of Owned SP. I am giving one of your posts a 100% upvote to help you towards reaching 100!

@thedarkhorse, thank you, much appreciated

hello sir please support me

No I don't support people who steal other people's photos and post them as their own. This is illegal and has serious potential legal ramifications for the Steem Blockchain.
