What Is The Top 3 Contest DPoll All About?

At the beginning of the month, we asked people to choose 3 of their favourite Authors and write a bit as to why they are their favourite. We then took all of those nominations from this month and listed it on our DPoll for the voting to take place.

But we need your help in deciding the most popular choices. The choices with the highest votes will be given points. The point system will determine the amount of the prize pool to be won based on placing 1st, 2nd and 3rd.

  • Stan Lee

Where's Brandon Sanderson !? :)

All great authors in many different genres.
Had to vote for the guy who got me reading.

Always interesting to see what choices don't get entered each month! Hopefully the longer we continue the contest, the more entries we get and the less great options will get dusted under the rug. We kept it pretty broad this month, but I'm sure when we revisit authors or books in general we'll narrow down into some fun genres. :)

Haha, I'm surprised a few authors didn't get mentioned in the contest this month but we'll be revisiting authors/books in a future topic!

Hopefully we'll see you enter next month's contest as well, make sure you follow the @yourtop3 account for the announcements :)

Hi appreciated @rentmoney.

Is it possible that in any future installment of YourTop3 we could vote or propose Steemit authors?
For example, if we address the subject of poetry, then the participants could apply for an author we like.

I will wait for the contest next month to participate

Your friend, Juan.

Hey @juanmolina! Anything is possible with the topics each month and if you wanted to get involved with the contest, feel free to join our Discord server - we have a topic suggestions channel which is filling up with ideas.

Umm... nope, not this time. I'm sparing myself for my post for @theycallmedan :P

Ooh, definitely a good one to save up the stamina for. Looking forward to your post!

You just never know with these polls but like you said, the more the merrier - it's a very decent prize pool this month along with the Splinterlands prize... (thanks for adding that awesome bonus as well)
