Since post rewards are becoming less and less everyday, I will post this contest only once a week. Both the sharing and rewards will be affected accordingly. Sorry for not being able to maintain this contest as frequently and I hope I will not stop completely. To keep it up, we will need more upvotes and more participation for judges as well as writers.
Since I am new to the whole contest thingy, I am trying to make rules that will accommodate as many people in a fun way, and also will make winners happy with their wins.
Therefore, the rules may change with time but I hope to the best for everyone and please let me know if these rules work out for you.
What is this contest about?
The reasons behind this contest is
1- To give my gratitude to the steemians (especially my followers) for their hard work in creating quality content and for their support to me and steemit community.
2- To increase the interaction and support between readers and writers.
3- Everyone is a winner, whether you submit a post or you upvote a post, you will be a winner and receive some rewards.
4- I will choose the 5 posts with highest number of upvotes,
3 of them I will upvote them with (0.5, 0.4 and 0.3 SBD from first to third respectively, or equal SBD for equal # of upvotes). The other 2 I will upvote them with 0.2 SBD. All upvotes will be done by either @minnowbooster or @treeplanter, whichever available. and Depending on the payouts I will send them their cash rewards (Steem or SBD), or upvote another post they wrote.
Please note that I may reply and comment on your entry but I will not upvote any entry because I am leaving that to the judges. I will only upvote the winning posts :)
Each week, Every 10 episodes, I will send a gift to the 10 people that were most actively involved in working as judges and helping me making choices. The gift is a surprise (cash or upvote).
I changed the duration above because it is not possible to tell who is really actively involved in judging from 2 episodes per week.
6- I will run the competition
2 times Once a week due to low rewards.
I will share 1/2 the SBD reward pool of this post with all participants and judges. I will use the SBD reward pool to pay the winners and to buy bid bots' upvotes. I will share whenever the payouts are good enough.
