The Engagement League - Sponsored by @curie



This league is not based around financial rewards and relates to engagement.

Everyone currently on my master list has a chance here - including those powering down or dealing in delegations over the past couple of weeks.

I've used some metrics (which is the fancy way of saying that made up some numbers) relating to:

  • Posts (P)
  • Comments - number of (C)
  • Comments - replies to replies - depth > 2 (C R)
  • Number of people spoken to (PS)
  • Comments - length in characters (C L)
  • Witness votes (W) (for those proxying witness votes, your total is always 30)
  • Upvotes to others (V)
  • Upvotes to different authors (U V)
  • Self-votes - a (getting smaller each week) minus score for this one sorry! (S V)




Firstly, if you are placed in the table above then you among the top 25% of the league entrants!

Congratulations to this weeks Engagement League winner, @janton! 🏆

A full weeks' action on his new throne, @janton has produced a huge score, typing over 250000 characters in over 1300 replies!

In 2nd this week again, the lovely @lynncoyle1 - super consistent!

@maquemali is a new entry into the top 3 - well done!

Excellent engagement levels also from @abh12345, @steemflow, @brittandjosie, @simplymike, @smithlabs, @coinsandchains, @glenalbrethsen, and @melinda010100 who will all be receiving some STEEM this week.

Those without a self-vote (from their main account at least! 😱) and placed in the top ranks will also receive a little STEEM. These people are: @macoolette, @headchange, @cicisaja, @ecoinstant, @veryspider, @delishtreats, @bengy, @gillianpearce, and @cryptocopy.

Well done everyone!


The Curation League / Rewards based

Please find the rules in a previous post.

The end column is what I think is a genuine indicator of how well you are financially working the curation game with the tools, including vested Steem Power, that you have at your disposal.

Congratulations @mightypanda!

Thanks Asher for another fabulous week! And much appreciation to @curie for the continued support of the project.
Congratulations to those up in the lofty heights of the top levels. And even @janton as usual.
Did everyone see the link at the top of the page?? So glad that was included so I knew to go vote for Ashers comment. Hope everyone who didn't know can make it over to help you get that ticket. I can't think of anyone more deserving.

·

Hey, @headchange.

I hope everyone makes it over to the smooth's link as well. The more the merrier to see if we can help Asher get to Steemfest 3.

·
·

When I was there I noticed there is one other person who has more comment votes than he does. It is not much more at all. It wouldn't take a lot to push his to the top. Seems to me like the engagement league should be able to do that. Just in case the winner gets chosen based on the comment responses. Just a couple more votes could make all the difference.

·
·
·

Really? Wow. That must have happened after I went, because he was clearly on top in both upvotes and the number of comments he had under his own comment. I guess I'll need to go see what's going on. :)

·
·
·
·

Maybe more people came after I went to bed. I hope so like a said it was like a two cent difference. Maybe I will go back and take a peek myself.

·
·
·
·
·

I see. Yeti's got more rewards on his comment, but way fewer votes and comments. At any rate, smooth's going for the best two answers, as chosen by him, and who knows what he's going to like best. We'll just hope Asher's is one of them. :)

·
·
·
·
·
·

Thanks guys!

There are a couple of good entries for sure, fingers crossed!

·
·
·
·
·
·
·

Mine are certainly crossed for you bud!

·

Thank for mentioning the link!

I'm just behind on vote value but I think that sincere comments will be considered more heavily.

Thank you to you and everyone who's made it over there to comment!

·
·

You are very welcome. it was running close on the votes when I was there.
Don't worry about vote value too much. I never have any lol
There should be enough people in the league to push you over the top.
Just got to make sure everyone knows about it.

·
·
·

Good eye to point that link out @headchange!! I'm sure many missed it :)

·

Thanks for the heads up about this @headchange. I missed the link and I missed the post as I've not been around much this week. Voted and commented now though. 😁

·
·

Thanks for saying so. I hesitated in case it would be considered "pushy" But I myself did not know and was very glad to be informed. 😌

Great idea! Great engagement! sincerely I would love to partake in this league. It's just like a family.

·

Great to meet you. Looking forward to seeing you on the list. There really is a great community spirit here. I think you will love it.

·
·

Yeah, so how do I become a member? How do I join the league.

·
·
·

Hey, @maxijgcomm.

Usually, it's just as easy as saying, @abh12345, can I please join the leagues? And then Asher confirms he saw your request and you're in. Now that I've mentioned him here, I'm sure you'll see confirmation at some point. :) I guess he sleeps or something sometimes, or he would be here already, right Asher? :)

·
·
·
·

Ok thanks a lot for the positive response. I hope I dont need to request for it any longer since you've that.

I believe she would see it anyways.

·
·
·

You probably did just become a member. Just a comment usually will do the trick. He will come through eventually and confirm. Then next week you can come and check the list.

·
·
·
·

Interesting that's nice.

·

Thanks for the 'family' comment, i like that :D

You are now on the list, welcome!

·
·

Thanks a lot!

I love this. I only found out about the league on Thursday even though I would be fairly active without the extra motivation, being the highly competitive person I am this only makes me want to do more.

I'll happily take 41st place for week number one, as this gives me a lovely platform to build from going into next week. It might take a while but that top ten is calling out to me.

Nice to see you making 13th @headchange. I'm sure you would have liked to make it up a few more spots but still a great result. Thanks for putting all this together @abh12345. It's a great project and I'm glad to be a part of it now.

So good to see you on the list! I was way at the bottom on my first week. Can't wait to see you moving on up in weeks to come. I think you will love the league it is lots of fun.

·
·

Thanks I was fairly surprised myself to be honest. Some of the people on that list put up huge numbers of posts and comments.
I can see what you were saying about it being addictive as I've only put down one week but already want to get higher. Looking forward to this week to give it a right go.

Posted using Partiko Android

·
·
·

Well good! That means I will be seeing you around quite a bit this week. Seems like I bump into these engagers wherever I go on the platform.
I agree some of those numbers are far beyond anything I will ever do. A top ten spot would be nice though.

·
·
·
·

More than likely. I have a taste for it now and need more... I can see a lot of names that i recognize from my own interactions so i suppose it is the people who are out and about. They also seem to be a lot of the people who post good content on a regular basis so it makes sense that we will come across them a lot more often.

Top ten would be nice. Looking at some of those crazy numbers at the top end i know that i'm a long way off even if you are within touching distance. Maybe if i give up my job and take up the old commenting full time i might stand a chance. :)

·
·
·
·
·

Sadly it has become about who has the most time in some ways. But there are still good top spots to be had for those who can't put in mega hours. I already am aware of my ceiling. Time can be a huge factor for all of us. It is something I see discussed often.

I interact with some groups who have a lot of members on the league. That is really how I ended up here. So yeah between seeing them here and in other comment threads it seems like the same couple hundred people are all over.
I have been actively working on expanding my own circle a bit. Ashers little charts and graphs can shed a lot of light on interaction and led to that.
I think you will find that the benefits go far beyond just list placement. You will see what I mean.
See you at the games.😋

·
·
·
·
·
·

I can see where you're coming from. I love the chart and the rankings but behind that there is the whole concept of interacting with some of the most interesting people on the site. There are the groups that you can be pulled into from talking with these people and obviously the more active that you are the better for your account to grow. Otherwise you might as well just delegate to a bot and take your couple of steem a week hassle free. And that's ok if monetary gain is all you want to take from here.

For me it's only secondary. I know i can't commit the same time and effort to my activities as some people but such is life. I will go with what i have and see how far that can take me. Even in the past week i have met about 5 new and very interesting people never mind what i might achieve from being part of this. I think the people are what's important on here so expanding your circle can only lead to better things.

·
·
·
·
·
·
·

And don't forget having fun 😉 Sometimes if you start doing the fun things time just slides on by then you look up and the account has grown.

·

Hey, @niallon11.

Welcome to the engagement league! And congratulations on your placing this week. I agree with you. The league is a great motivator and a chance to see what we're really doing out there. I think a lot of Steemit's best engagers are here, and those that haven't joined yet will, I'm sure. It's the place to be. :)

·
·

Thanks @glenalbrethsen, glad to be here among all you fine people. I only found it this week but love the concept and i can see how it gives people that extra little push when they are feeling less than motivated. I've been here for 18 months and have come across a lot of the people here at some stage or another but only heard about the league this week. Surprising really, but i'm sure there are some great people out there that would be as interested as i was to hear about it. Hopefully we will see them joining in at some stage along the way.

·
·
·

Wow. 18 months now. I'm barely finishing up my eighth. I had help finding the leagues, though, or I probably wouldn't be in them still. That seems to be the way things work around here. I'm glad you've found them. I think in its current form the engagement league has only been going on since around the end of last year beginning of this one, so that would more or less be the last eight months, too. And as it is, I think we are still just getting started, especially if those others you mention make their way here to it.

·
·
·
·

I only joined originally because i was researching different crypto's and stumbled across the site but didn't really do much with my account for a long time. It was probably coming into last winter that i really made an effort on here to post and engage.

Even then i didn't really know what i was trying to achieve so you can cut off about the first 6 months from that. Since then i've found so much to get involved in that its built up nicely from there. I'm sure its the same for a lot of others too that are on the site but not really sure what they are trying to achieve. A lot wouldn't be bloggers so there is a bit of a missing segment of activities for them to get into.

·

Thank you for the positive write-up :)

Getting on the list is the first thing and now you will likely have more idea of what's required. Good luck!

·
·

No problem. I only say what i see, and i see something that i really like here. I'm a bit surprised to be in a decent position in week one but now i have a far better idea of what is required to get on there, so going forward i can try to push that little bit more and climb the rankings.
Bring it on.

woohooo 2nd place!!! I consider that first place in the "normal" world ... no way I'm beating @janton haha Nice job again buddy! And look at you Asher, 3rd place! Nice job buddy ;) Congratulations to @steemflow, @brittandjosie, @simplymike (looks like you've returned!!), @smithlabs, @coinsandchains, @glenalbrethsen, and @melinda010100!! Another fantastic week :)

Thanks Asher and @curie for everything :) Happy Power Up Sunday everyone ;)

by the way Ash, these are coming in later and later every week; perhaps I may need to change it to Power up Mondays LOL Hope that means you've had a great day outside !!!

I'd also like to congratulate @yasu24 for being on this list :) We just met this week, and I wanted to say a special hello here too :)

·

Haha, whoops!

I'll try and get an early one in next week to catch you out 😁 It's just turned midnight here so on my time, the post was released on a Sunday - sunshine/li-lo permitting!

Thanks Lynn, a great job in 2nd!

·
·

This should always come third, after sunshine and li-lo ... fourth if you count beer :)

You're welcome, and thank you. My goal now is 2nd or 3rd; 1st, but it'll be a fluke haha

·

Congrats!!!! Hahahaha you can outbeat @janton im sure of it, one day you will take that chair..

This comment was made from https://ulogs.org

·

Thanks, lynn. lol, I consider just being on the list a win for me, I don't know how you guys do it.

·
·

You're welcome! You're right ... anyone, anywhere on this list is a winner ;)

I don't know how you guys do it.

One of the joys of retirement buddy. That and throw in a little insomnia :)

·
·
·

Well, I have the insomnia down, but I doubt I will ever retire. I like working too much.

·
·

Don't sleep and work on Steemit round the clock. I guess that is what @janton is doing, replying at pass one o'clock in the morning his timezone. 😃

You did great being on green spot!

·
·
·

I've conversed with him at 2 A.M. and later his time.
You did rather well yourself, a couple hundred points is all, which could just be a fluke.

·
·
·
·

We would never know how many "couple of hundreds" the others will make. Since the first time I joined the league, I thought I'll just go on with my usual business and see where I land at the end of the week.

·
·
·
·
·

lol, That's pretty much what I've been doing. I did start following the Curie trail, which quite honestly has some pretty good content. There were a few I questioned but for the most part, it is really good content.

·
·
·
·
·
·

Yes, I saw your name on curie's winners list for last week as I was following my mentions earlier. I am yet to get to that and comment. Am still catching up with my replies.

·
·
·
·
·
·
·

I know the feeling, I have an inbox full..... just now decided to take lunch an hour and a half late.

·

ThAnx and See you next week !

·

Thanks Lynn, and bravo on 2nd again! That is pretty darn amazing!

·
·

I think congratulations are in order! You deserve to be on that list, you're working hard each week and month! You're the best! ♥️

·

Way to go @lynncoyle1!! I agree two is the new one these days. I love him but he is nuts. But then anything in the top ten seems phenomenal to me.

·
·

hahah two is the new one!! LOL that's awesome!

and yes, @janton is nuts :)

·
·
·

Where is he at anyway? I am going to go hunt him down. Maybe he has finally collapsed in a heap of exhaustion from all that typing.

·

Nice job @lynncoyle1 hehehehehehe this was my first week and a TON of fun to see all our @welcomewagon peeps in here!!!! <3

way to go @maquemali!!!!!!!!!!! are you kidding me?!?!?!? #4??!?! you're amazing!!!!!

@anutu - congratulations on being the winner of the special SBI!!!! @mimismartypants - i see you there!!!!! hehehehe

and I KNOW that miss @eveningart will be back in the mix now that she's home from vacation!!!!

(thanks again for doing this @abh12345! hehehee)

·
·

Way to go @dreemsteem and the @welcomewagonpeeps!! So awesome to see new people here :)

·
·

Waaaaaaaaaahhh!!! I literally woke up to this! 😍😍 this had made my day.. i was pretty nervous that i wouldn't make to the list... but making it to TOP 4!! That was more than I could ask for.. hehe 😊

All this a huge thanks to you
Miss @dreemsteem and the WW Family!!! You had all encouraged us to get it going! We were so fueled up by your undying support to us..

This comment was made from https://ulogs.org

·
·

Lol here I am!! You guys are putting me to shame!! I at least have to be on the first page next week!! MISS @maquemali is on fire hey!!! Shooo!! Toooo hooot hoot hooot!!

But congratulations to you again Miss @dreemsteem and your band of @welcomewagon'ers. Why in my mind do i picture us like dwarfs following snow white lol!!

·

Being second is fantastic! Congratulations!

·

I agree, you're first in the normal world. Congratulations to you and all those who are on top! 💐

Peace, @janton 😃

·

No, I'm pretty sure that in the normal world the first spot would be around number 20! All you guys up there are out of this world!

·

Well, @lynncoyle1. Thank you for the mention and congratulations on No. 2. Your comments have been steadily increasing over the last few weeks. Does that mean you're back at full capacity? Not even sure what that's supposed to mean anymore. Not when the comment bar is now consistently over 1,000. :)

·

Thank you. I also want to be a winner like you.

OMG!!!!!!!!!! I could not believe my eyes! Is this for real??!!! I cannot believe it!!! 😰😰😰

THANK YOU @abh12345 for this, I would not have thought to be in the TOP 5! This is amazing!! Thank you for this league that we were encourage to engage more. I cannot wait for the next week to come. Hope we will still be in the list. 😍

CONGRATULATIONS TO ALL!!

I see a couple of the WW Family in the list @anutu @mimismartypants @dreemsteem!! Im sooooo happy we made it! It really feels good to be part of something great!

Also, Congrats to my newly found friend @smithlabs!! Way to go sir! You are always consistent to be part of the TOP TEN!

Awesome engagement guys! Let,s keep the fire burning... wooot! woooot!

Congratulations to you, @maquemali. Well done on the No. 3 finish. Things move around quite a bit from week to week so we're always needing to improve, it seems. That is the fun and the challenge of the engagement league. Welcome to it. :)

·
·

Thank you!

You are right! We can never hold on to the same positions.. it will keep on moving.. changes can be better!

Let's just have fun..

What a great effort for a new member!

Thank you for the support and well done on your prize! :D

Thank you for the push!.. hehe.. I guess we all need it once in a while..

Congrats @anutu with the Lucky number 25 price. Your SBC share has been sponsored as you can see below.

I guess I do need to step up my game because I don't even make it to the list anymore!
@janton, amazing how you keep crushing this League!

Cheers,
Peter

·

Hey, @fullcoverbetting.

Yeah, like the list isn't at all what it used to be, is it? :) All the new folks wanting to compete or something. Sheesh.

Thanks again for doing the SBC sponsorship. Always good of you to do.

·

Cheers Peter!

Gotten a lot harder to make the top 20, but I think still possible to make the top 100 reasonably easy.

Thanks again for lucky 25 sponsorship :)

Great news! This is a blessed week for me! My name re-enters the table. Yes! The first table, and it's number .... 88. 😐 Good number. Thanks Asher for expanding the table. But I'm not in the mood for doing any more "hunt my name" quest.

Anyone who could see my name on the next table may have used super sight. Salute!

And, Asher, good luck with the commennt contest. 👍

Yo all participants, congrats.

·

Hey, @aneukpineung78.

I'm glad to hear you made it back on the engagement list. I hope all continues to be well on the health front. My wife just had hernia surgery, so I've been trying to help her with what she's needed. She seems to be doing pretty good, although she's got some pain that started to creep up a little more toward the end of the week. I guess we'll have to see what that's about. But she's been getting around and the surgeon said she's supposed to walk, so I'll need to encourage her to do more of that.

·
·

My thought is with you and your wife, Glen. I wish her a speedy recovery.

·
·
·

That's very kind of you. I think she's doing well. We just need to keep her from doing too much. She has a tendency to try to do more than she should. I think she started to see that maybe she should slow down a little toward the end of the week. I think it's just that after you've been down for a bit, it gets to the point where you're feeling better, and that makes you think you can do more, when you really should just keep taking it easy. She is supposed to be walking, and moving about, though, so there's this line between resting and moving we need to get her to walk. :)

·

:D 88 is top 25%, still better than most.

And, Asher, good luck with the comment contest. 👍

Thank you!

Pooh even in my holiday I produced over 10k characters 😳
Steemit is really to addictive and attractive. I got to find a better way to ignore it so now and then.

Right now I have selected about 40 posts to read. I have really no idea how I can ever catch up. Perhaps I can just ask all of you very kindly to stop producing content and engaging via comments?
😜😎

·

Hey, @crypto-econom1st.

The idea is to do more, not less. You're supposed to forego all vacations, all time with family and friends and sit in a comfy folding chair 16 hours a day (minimum). Didn't you know that? 😬

You'll catch up. I know you can. :)

·
·

Did you also know that even when I'm not on holiday I can't even read all posts I would love to?

So basically every month I have to skip like 10-20 posts and don't read them in the end.

·
·
·

I've been having trouble keeping up with my feed lately. I wish I could blame it on vacation, but it's not really what's happening. My wife had hernia surgery, so the week before, the week of and this week have been horrendous for trying to keep up. The good thing is, she seems to be doing pretty good. The bad part is, my work here suffers. I know it's better to be with her, so no worries or regrets. I just would like to get back into some semblance of a routine. It probably won't happen for another two more weeks.

·
·
·
·

Goodluck with the recovery of your wife!
I think that's most important right now!

·

I know how you feel!

This post was the 2nd most commented on in the past 24 hours, and less than 10 comments were mine - amazing!

·
·

Again really amazing!

With again I mean that almost each week this post gets like 300+ comments. I think sometimes it even goes above 400?
Although I don't check it very often after a week. Let me do that in a minute.

I do wonder which other posts are that popular? Perhaps that is a nice subject for a post this week?

It looks like it was another eventful week. Congratulations to the winners. I haven't been spending as much time on Steemit recently, so my scores have dropped, but it's still fun to see how I rank against the rest of you. One of these days I may just sit at the computer all day, all week so I can win. Ha ha. Until then...

·

Hey, @themanwithnoname.

Let me know when you want to sit at the computer all week and I'll see what I can do to be a part of that win. Good to see you commenting here. :)

·
·

I'm in. I worked with ecoin all week to help him beat me, I'll help anyone!

·
·
·

Now hold on there, just a minute, partner. If you're helping others you're also helping yourself. That's the cool part of all of this. So, instead of just under 1,400 comments, you could have double that, eh? Good strategy. :)

·
·
·
·

haha! It's like trying to out-give God, no matter how much you give... more comes back to you! lol.

uh..well that would take alot of effort to beat the 1,400 and unless alot of luck was involved I think I would have to actually do at least a little of what people on here falsely think that I do and that's go without some sleep or at least cut down on it!

It's an admirable goal though!

·
·
·
·
·

haha! It's like trying to out-give God, no matter how much you give... more comes back to you! lol.

Man, I'd love for some of that to start coming back. I've been planting seeds for years that have never grown. Still maybe now's the time. Hey, it could happen! :)

You sleep? I figured you were a duo of brothers, one of whom worked the 12AM - 12PM shift, and the other from 12PM to 12 AM. Then you never have to have downtime.

·
·
·
·
·
·

haha! it's so funny reading the totally wrong perceptions of me on here, truly hilarious. I do get plenty of sleep, I don't work very late and if I get behind and have to be up a little later I just sleep in the next morning, I do work outside everyday, I take most of Sundays off and much of each evening watching tv. so I guess you can blame it on the magic chair!
this insomnia stuff is so funny because I get alot of sleep but I know people on here who work all hours of the night while I'm fast asleep! lol.

·
·
·
·
·
·
·

That's good you're getting enough sleep it's important for beauty. They don't call it "beauty sleep" for nothing. :D

·
·
·

Thanks, Janton. I would have to find other people to talk with, in addition to you. Otherwise, like @glenalbrethsen says below, you'd just be doubling your own score. ;)

·
·
·
·

hahaha! well sir, I will be in and out of the top brackets as things come up that I have to work on offline so there will be many changes coming, I'm sure!

·
·
·
·
·

We all just do the best we can. No worries.

I don't think it's going to be this week. That would be interesting to do though. I could write my memoirs. Ha ha.

Life getting a little more back to normal for you yet?

·
·
·

Well, kind of, but not really. As the wife gets better, the more she wants me to do, too, with her, so there you go. Two-edged sword when it comes to getting on Steemit. :)

However, I can't really complain. I got on it more last week than I anticipated being able to, so that's good.

You could write your memoirs. :) That would be pretty amazing, considering you are themanwithnoname. Right now, you can claim to be themanwithnomemoirs, too, but if you wrote them, you'd no longer be able to claim that. Plus, I'm wondering how these would work out. How does anonymity and memoirs go together?

I was born in a town in a state in the US. It was a good year.

·
·
·
·

At least you get to spend time with your wife. It can be easy to get sucked into Steemiverse and forget about the real world. There are people who care about us and need attention from us, so when they ask we should try to accommodate.

I'm not sure how anonymity and memoirs go together. I'd have to ponder that a bit more. I guess you could say that you did "such and such" and just leave out your name. As long as no one knows who it is who's doing "such and such" then it doesn't really matter that it's you who's doing it, because no one knows who "you" is. Does that make sense? Heh

I was. I may yet be. If I still am, then I might could still be being.

I've been slacking too the last few days - the break was required though.

If you are planning a whole day, I hope you have a comfy chair like Jantons :)

·
·

I'm glad you were able to get a break. Any breakthrough after the break. Oftentimes if a person takes a break they come back and see progress on things that they had been working on. Or they have renewed energy to continue working on things, but they find a new angle and thus make more progress than before. Has this been the case for you?

I didn't know Janton had a comfy chair, but being that he seems to sit in it all day, either it is comfy or he has a great stamina for sitting in garbage chairs.

·
·
·

Has this been the case for you?

To some extent yes, I got some more pies in the oven, and managed to get a contest entry done.

That chair must be VERY comfy :)

@janton you super rocka..great to see you on top..share some important tips 😉.......surprised to see my name in top 10...will catch @janton one day 😜
@abh12345 great to see my name ..and all the best for your road to steemfest 3

Hey, @steemflow.

Congratulations on your No. 5 spot this week. I never know who's new and who's not, but I thought I'd just say, "Welcome to the engagement leauge, good job," and good luck on catching Janton. Someone should. :)

·
·

@glenalbrethsen thanks so much..even i am surprised to see my name up there....catching @janton..is tough task...he is one of the great ....will need to learn a lot from him how he maintain such consistency.

Nice work! Good to see new names near the top.

...all the best for your road to steemfest 3

Thank you!

howdy and good day to you sir Asher! congratulations on your high placing this week and thank you for working so hard on these contests and of course a special thanks to the great curie! You are helping so many and we are thankful!
Congrats to all the members who worked so hard to get onto the charts this week!

·

Hey, @janton.

Thanks for making an appearance. Usually I'm the last one through here, but I beat you to it this week. :)

Congratulations on No. 1, and with all the metrics. Simply amazing what you're doing each week, you know that right?

·
·

good morning sir! well..no sir I didn't realize it was very special, I thought I was just cruising along doing what I'm having fun doing..but I thank you for your kind words.

but I still can't hold a candle to the quality of your commenting and your creative writing skills and even your regular writing skills so in most ways you are still the leader by far in my book!

I see such amazing talent on this platform that I feel way out of my league on a daily basis!

·

Thank you very much champ! Congratulations again on topping the charts - perhaps one day I'll get a little closer :D

·
·

haha! well dang you can't get much closer! can you win your own contest?
Do you have rules in place for that? lol.

Life was busy this week and I hardly expected to make the list at all, so this is a pleasant surprise!
@janton you are Superman, I have no doubt! Congrats to @lynncoyle1, @maquemali, @steemflow, @brittandjosie, @simplymike, @smithlabs, @coinsandchains, @glenalbrethsen, and huge congrats too, @abh12345- you are all amazing! The past two weeks I have been on both lists, and I am really disappointed in myself not to see my name on the curation list this week! My house guests have left so now I must get back to Steemin!

·

Thank you for the mention.. its been really overwhelming to be included in the list..

Congratulations to you too!!!

Thanks! Commenting is my favorite thing!

·
·

You are so natural on it... sorry i have been stalking! Haha.. i might want to join in your contest though.

This comment was made from https://ulogs.org

·

Told you not to worry about your comments! You're always doing great!

·

Hey, @melinda@010100.

Thank you for the mention and congratulations on the No. 10 spot. For someone who's had house guests, you did quite well to stay in the Top 10, I'd say. It's been a while since I saw my name on the curation list. One of these days I need to figure out better how that all works. In the meantime, there's another engagement league mountain to climb. :)

·
·

I certainly don't have a solid understanding of curation, either. Thanks for your kind words!

·

You did great on the EL again, that's the main one! :D

Good luck for this week now you can focus 100%!

·
·

I'm looking forward to a quiet week with as much time as I want for Steemin! It's my favorite place to be!

·

Thanks @melinda010100, guests and life have a tendency to do that to us. I have to say my "real" world stuff has to take precedence over steemit. Have a blessed day, sorry for the late comments, I can't get caught up.

·
·

I always hope that the real world does not notice the resentment that may be building up because I have to pay attention to it instead of Steem! I know that not getting caught up feeling!

·
·
·

It's highly addictive. I typically go in blocks I work a lot too. M-F from 5 or 6 when my wife gets home til 9 or 10:30 when she goes to bed are typically off limits unless the kids are gone and she wants to read. I still find myself wanting to check on stuff though, but I know me and I have to guard my time.

·
·
·
·

I live alone and my time is my own since my husband died, so I am grateful to have Steem to fill the lonely moments!

·
·
·
·
·

I am sorry to hear that, but I am glad that you have this awesome community to hang out with.

Whoa congratulations everyone who managed to win. This contest is very hard for me, but at least I’m having fun :).

·

Hey, @scrawly.

It is hard. The bars been raised a couple of times since I got here. New faces, lots of effort. But as you said, it's also fun. Really, you're your own challenger. You keep improving against yourself, you'll get higher up the list. Having time to do this is always going to be the main factor, so just do what you can and help everyone here engage with the rest of Steemit and that will be enough. :)

Goodevening ThAnx asher, what a week again, i remained at place 6 ! Big sbout out to @janton
I have got to buy myself that Same chair he has maybe it Will help, and offcourse @lynncoyle1 and yourself asher. Nice to See other and congratulations also to @steemflow, @maquemali @simplymike and @smithlabs, @coinsandchains, @glenalbrethsen, and @melinda010100!! Another fantastic week coming ! See you next week ! Resteemed and upvoted offvourse ThAnx for the reward I am going to buy myself some extra toilet paper 😉😉

·

Hey, @brittandjosie.

Thanks for the shoutout, and congratulations to you to, on No. 5. I guess it's technically No. 6, but Asher isn't counting himself. :)

As for Mr. Janton—he and his chair can be defeated—1,400 comments will probably do it. :) Actually, that's not true. Less than 1,000 did it a couple weeks ago. Anyway, I'm agreeing and disagreeing with you, all at the same time! Someone just needs to spend the next 168 hours in some kind of chair working on Steemit, and that ought to do it. :)

·
·

YES nr 5 without asher 💃💃 and only a 1000 shall I try to fix it maybe if I skip sleep let the children dress on their own and call in sick at work maybe its duable. 😂 janton deserved it

·
·
·

Oh, janton definitely deserves it each week. He does an amazing amount of engagement.

Well, hey, whatever it takes to do more on Steemit, right? Okay, maybe not so much letting the children fend for themselves or calling in sick at work, but who needs sleep? Okay, maybe you should sleep, too. :)

·
·
·
·

Lets try the sleep thing .... 1000 🤔🤔🤔🙏 I an gonna try

·

Way to go @brittandjosie!! haha the chair lives on ;)

·

6th again, that's excellent stuff guys!

Thank you for the support 😁

... I am going to buy myself some extra toilet paper

Food for the week! :D

·

Thanks @brittandjosie and big congrats to you, too! And I think we all need @janton chairs!

·
·

I was talking to @maqeumali too the chair us a big thing and MR janton is unbeatable if you ask me!

·

Thanks for the mention.. same goes to you, CONGRATS!

Truly it has been a magical week for me! I have never been included in the list until now.. or i have never engaged too much i guess.. haha.. but im glad i did..

I also wonder what it feels to have that chair??? 🤔


This comment was made from https://ulogs.org

·
·

YES the chair..... Thats a thing but nr. 1 MR janton I cant beat he is to great !

·
·
·

Yeah! He surely is tough to beat.. He sure does know hownto keep us at the go..

I actually think you had a fair chance to make it into the top3 this week. Maybe next time when you write such a lot of comments?

·

Yay! Can't explain how good it feels to be bck kn the top 10 again. I honestly thought I wzas never going to make it again

inyqrgp9o3NUA.gif

I'm going to try tl keep up this speed, but I'm feeling drained again for the moment, so I'm not sue i will be able to.
I'l try my best, there's nothing more than I can do :0

·

Mike you Will be fine, your best is good enough!
Congrats

·

I knew you'd be back @simplymike :)

·

Woop!😁

Glad to have you back up at the top, thank you for all the support this year!

·

LOL, most of us are not robots like janton. I hope you get to feeling better and use the excitement of winning as fuel.

·

Whoo hoo look at you go! Don't tire out now you seem to be on a roll. By the way nice happy dance. Bob's Burgers somehow fits this bunch.

·

Congratulations! Looks like hard work is paying off! :) I'm also working on being on that list 😉

·

Hey, look at that! The new dolphin is on the top ten! That is worth a double celebration. Congratulations!

·
·

Thanks, @macoolette. It took me ages to get back into that top 10.
Make sure hou don't miss my party at my blog ;0

·
·
·

You're welcome.

I saw it. I resteemed your party. 😊

·

Top3 was even very close. Perhaps if you didn't get any penalty.....?

·
·

Maybe, but it would still be 8000 points...

·

Hey, @simplymike.

Well, then, congratulations for getting back into the Top 10. Just goes to show you never know from week to week what you'll be able to do, right?

Hopefully, you've rested up and are ready for another week. And it's true, your best is all that you can do. :)

·
·

Thanks, @glenalbrethsen.
It all depends on my mood, energy and inspiration. Sometime I simply can't find any words to write a decent comment, and sometimes the words just keep coming, lol

·
·
·

I'm pretty sure that happens to all of us. I know it happens to me. I'll even start the comment, get half way through it and think, this is gibberish. So I cancel it and move on. If I'm not feeling it, I don't want to do it. I don't feel any better for doing so afterward. However, there is a level of frustration in it if I can't find something to say for too long. Some days are just better than others.

·
·
·
·

I couldn't agree more :0)

I want to join this contest. Please let me in.

·

Hi @mmunited, consider yourself 'let in' - welcome to the Leagues!

·
·

Silliness. I posted yesterday Great Job Everyone and come to check on something and post is still sitting here.

@janton I agree you're becoming a legend. LOL Everyone is so mystified by how you do it. Once anyone gets to know you, they should understand. Your posts are engaging. You respond to everyone that makes a comment on your posts (VERY key activity) and you actually hold conversations with people whether it be on your own thread or something you have commented on. You give true meaning to the word ENGAGEMENT. On top of that you're a true gentleman and honest. What more could anyone want. You set a great example for all of us to emulate.

@lynncoyle1 is the same way. With as much as she curates, she could say nice job. Great post. You've been curated LOL. She doesn't she shows the poster that she's read their posts and again engages them. She does the other key thing, responds to everyone that comments on her postings.

The same can be said for more than half of the top 20. I only say that is because there are names up there I have never seen before. So that gives me the goal of finding out about them :) No secret, you just have to come out of your shell and talk to people.

·

No secret, you just have to come out of your shell and talk to people.

Great comment! I love that folks are using the table to find new people to check out and engage with :D

A fun week again as always! I really enjoyed the contest, and I appreciate the work you do every week; I can tell it is a labor of love. The list you prepare every week is impressive, and it is fun to see where everyone stacks up, and competing part is fun too, mainly because it help everyone meet everyone else.

·

Hey, @smithlabs.

Congratulations on the Top 10 spot. I'm in full agreement with everything you said here, from the enjoyment I derive from the engagement league and the new challenges it presents every week, to what you said about Asher. At some point when we've made it through minnow stage into dolphin, I hope the leagues will be more than just a labor of love for Asher, since we'll all be able to reward him more. Of course, STEEM going back up would help there, too, but not until all who want to has bought in, right? :)

·
·

Yes, steem keeps dropping, and I need to buy a little myself. But rewarding (thanking) Asher is on my list of things to do on Steemit! As far as moving from minnow, that seems too far off to contemplate; been stuck at 49 forever!

But I will keep on posting, because it is fun; and forget about worrying over that number! :D

·

Congratulation sir!!!!! It was indeed an awesome week!

Wow, you got spot #3! Way to go, nice job. I am really enjoying this contest myself, LOL! :D
This has been a lot of fun, and I have met a lot of nice people here!

·
·
·

Yeah! And it was my first time to join!! I was like whaaaaat???!!! hahahaha..

Yes a lot of fun this week.. and indeed the community have amazing people. 😊

Yes it is what we would be doing anyway, so it is not a burden. I look for other people on here, and that expands my friend base some.

·
·
·
·
·

There is no burden if you love what you are doing. Luckily for us, we love meeting new people. It is such a joy how we can interact despite our time and culture differences..

A lot of people don't understand the time difference problem for sure. You are writing me tomorrow and I respond yesterday; but it works, LOL!
Working over the international date line is a little weird, but fun anyway! Steemit is a good way to find friends.
Stay Blessed my friend! :)

·
·
·
·
·
·
·

hahahaha I just love how it goes. It is just writing mails, you dont get to receive a respond at once. Atleast here, the response can only take 1-2 days.

I love how we can interact and connect globally. Yes! its weird but I just love it all... And truly, friends are gem and very rare to find.

Thank you good Sir for not getting tired for responding everything.. haha truly appreciated!

Same goes to you, Always be blessed and be a Blessing to others.

·

Thank you @smithlabs

A labour of love, I suppose it's grown into that yes. The biggest reward for me are the interactions here in the post comments where people can seek out new friends and followers.

Well done on your consistantly high placing again this week 😁

·
·

I have really been enjoying the people I have been meeting. It has been effective at opening the world for all to see. I run into a lot of good people, with few exceptions. Most people are open and honest on steemit, the only time I worry is when I see the whales down-voting each other. But fortunately that is not common.

This Engagement League has connected me with a lot of people I would never have run across any other way. So I appreciate what you are doing. It is having a positive effect.
:)

I find knowing this league is happening each week helps me to feel excited as I steem around (day-in-day-out) Hahahaha!

It's a lot of fun building this community!! And, becoming the #ageofabundance together we #rise <3 <3 <3

·

Thanks for the kind comment @yogajill, I'm glad the EL brings excitement to your Steem-ing :D

Loading...

Alright, been waiting for this one! Always nice to find myself on the fun side of prize support, great to see the familiar names move around and to see an exciting field well behind janton up there ;p

Thanks for this league, Great luck on that free ticket!

Great engagement everyone! Who's going to give janton a run for it this week?

·

hahahahaha i don't think it's physically impossible for me.

and i never sleep - and i type super fast! hahahahahaha but how does he do it?!?!?!?!

·
·

He does not sleep either. I get about 3-4 hours per night, I'm EST and he is CST and I've had conversations with janton at 3 and 4 am. Then I see him posting early mornings.

·

Well, man you know how many hours it took to beat him. What was the secret stratagy?

·
·

I don't know for sure but I bet it involved reminding him of his achy back rather often. Plus a little stalking here and there to learn about the wobbly chair. 😋

·
·
·

lol, you are probably correct.
Next, we need to get him one of those geriatric potty chairs that way he never has to move...

·
·
·
·

Oh no please let's don't encourage him. The poor guy is bordering on some kind of crazy comment obsession. I am almost certain people are starting to become concerned. His friends and family are probably off in a huddle right now trying to plot an intervention.

·
·
·
·
·

lol, I'm pretty sure his wife is more than capable of keeping him in line. I already tried to see if I could figure out a way to mount a laptop to his lawnmower, so he never has to slow down.....
