The league tables are reset each week and so any time is a good time to join!

The Engagement League

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 relating to:

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

Note: Copy/Paste comments will be excluded!

Engagement League Table

Firstly, if you are placed in the table above then you among the top 15% of the league entrants!

  • 379 accounts earned a score this week (381 last time)
  • The top 100 produced 921 top level posts (796 last time)
  • The top 100 produced 13618 comments (12885 last time)
  • The top 100 produced over 2.69 million characters of text in comments (2.34 last time)
  • The top 100 cast 38965 votes (40153 last time), of these, 227 were self-votes (191 last time)

Congratulations to this weeks Engagement League winner:

@tattoodjay! πŸ†

Two in a row for @tattoodjay who has stormed to victory again this week!

@dswigle, new sponsor of number 9, moves up 1 spot from last week to take 2nd place, and it's @dreemsteem who completes the top 3 - Well done guys!

Excellent engagement levels also from @veryspider, @chekohler, @simplymike, @chireerocks, @brittandjosie, @johannpiber, and @fitinfun who will all be receiving some STEEM this week.

Those without a self-vote and placed in the top ranks will also receive a little STEEM. These people are: @angelro, @dragonblades, @nickyhavey, @tarazkp, @baah, @bengy, and @foxyspirit.

Well done everyone!

The Curation League / Rewards based

NOTE: If you have started a power-down or been involved in delegations in/out of your account, you will not appear on this list for 15 days following the activities above. Thanks!

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.

A very short comment @abh12345, to fulfill my supporting commitment. I am still on vacation with my beloved. To see our β€œeastern” (those in the eastern U.S.) children …

An SBI share to our ”Hot Pink” winner this week - @angelro! From what I understand, a Steemian who was "away awhile" and has returned! πŸ‘

And congratulations to all of this week’s winners, which is everyone! As well as those who got some prizes … πŸ˜‰

"Onward and upward" into a new week!

Thank you sir, enjoy your vacation, rewind the life yourself by spending time with near and dear one. Most people forgets it or postpone it the process of adding more zeros in their bank account.

My pleasure @angelro. Yes, we definitely place greater value on our family than our bank account. Time "in here" as well, has been set aside ...

Cheers Rob, I hope you are enjoying your vacation in the east.

Thank you as always for sponsoring and championing the League, have a lovely week!

Congrats @tattodeejay: you are really ROCK! πŸ‘πŸ½

Thanks Asher for hosting this nice game!

1 SBI sponsorship to @abitcoinskeptic on his way, for lucky πŸ€ number #22!

Cheers πŸ₯‚

Congratulations to @Tattoodjay for another stellar performance! Woo-hoo!!

Thank you, Asher @abh12345 for putting together and encouraging the engagement here. And my prize! Thanks a million! Or at least 4 steem worth! Everyone involved is a winner, just for being here!

1 Steem on its way to @johannpiber, for lucky number #9! Congratulations!


Thank you so much, dear @dswigle, and my congratulations. Second week with a lucky number, that's awesome - I should play these numbers in our lotto πŸ˜„

Congratulations, again!! A true partner in crime!

Super stellar performance again by Jay, and yourself this week 😁

Thank you for sponsoring lucky number 9 and congrats to Johann for being the inaugural winner!

I felt like I had a slow week, I spent almost two days trying to learn/re-learn some HTML. So missed a few days of commenting, I guess I did not miss much though. Thinks on the blockchain continue to grow, not sure about the upcoming change to the 15 minute vote rule that I read, so more self voting may be starting up. I am still on the fence about that, but being able to vote at one minute verse having to wait 15 minutes, I think they just pretty much erased most of HF20 with that change. It will be interesting to see what happens with curation after that change takes place.

It is very nice we have the leagues to use as a guide to see how things do shake out. I for one will be looking forward to the October/November how you did "Monthly Stats" From Asher if he has time then. I figure by then all the HF kinks should be ironed out.

Very nice to see steady growth in the weekly overalls, some falls, but mostly growth. Always good to see engagement holding steady.

Congratulations to everyone on the list. Nice Job!


Yes the latest HF21 tweak regarding the auction window is an interesting one and I have no idea how that will pan out. I'm sure there will be plenty of data dives taking place.

Thanks for the reminder on the monthly stats, that's tomorrows post sorted :)


I wasn't look to be a reminder, I was looking forward to see the changes in the future if you are still doing them then. But yes, I would like the review, and will be looking for the post when it comes out. Thanks.

Another week that touches the entrance to the winning positions, this time I was convinced I succeeded, I will try again, never give up !!

Posted using Partiko Android

Very close, I'm sure you can make it 😬

Just out of curiosity, how many do you have in the league now and have any gone inactive?

Posted using Partiko Android

Active this week is 479, I think we have 800 or so names but will need to check when I'm home.

Thanks for the effort putting this together and your generosity :)

Congrats to everyone who made the list engagement is key to making this place special

And 2 SBI shares on its way to @abh12345 Off yeah thats you again :)

:D :D

2 weeks in a row for a prize over here, feeling lucky!

Cheers @tattoodjay, congrats on top spot once again :)

Thanks I enjoy it when I get it I know others will get that spot as well and that make sit fun :)

I am back and ready to start climbing the boards again! Happy that I never completely fell off! See you around!

Welcome back to fulltime engagement, will we see a top 20 or even a top 10 next time - I wouldn't bet against it!

Sent my boogies to the boogy lovers


Cheers Boogyboomy!

Just trawling through these messages with a Hazey Daze IPA and I'll be over to see how last nights beverages went down!

I'm number 9 and this is also a lucky number, wow πŸ˜ƒ
But without @tattoodjay, @janton and some other Steemians I wouldn't have made it under the top 10.
So, my honest congratulations to the winners of this week, and to all members of the Engagement and Curation League, and a big Thank You to all, who helped me, as well as to Asher, of course.

Posted using Partiko Android

As of this week, 9 is indeed a lucky number!

Well done @johannpiber and thanks for taking part :)

πŸ˜„ it makes fun, and it is hard work sometimes, but I like it 😁

Posted using Partiko Android

Thanks for the no vote prize! Good job everyone, it feels like the competition is getting tougher, which is a great thing!

I'm off to register a share for @niallon11.

Could be getting tougher, or maybe you've been slacking off :P


Nah... blame the system, no personal responsibility!

Still makes me laugh I can be near the top of this list and still on my travels. Shameful steemians...shameful πŸ˜‚

Thanks for the steem here and good to see a few other non self voters around! Rare to see πŸ™‚

Not doing too well with curation rewards though. Not sure how to maximise that really. Got any tips?

Yeah the community could do better but there is a good group here.

Until the fork, try to vote at 9-10 mins. When the fork lands in a week or 2, who knows!?

Yea good to see there are a load of active people on here still!

Thanks for the tip, I'll have a look at that but when I vote posts too early, I notice there is little to no curation rewards?

Posted using Partiko Android

The best curator on one of your recent posts landed at 2 minutes :)

No need to figure out what's best in this short time before the next fork, it will all change (and asap looks like being best).

I do like my D&B :D

I have never come across beempy until now. Going to bookmark that page and see how it will work after the next fork!

Ooo another DnB head! Great to meet you Haha! What sort of style do you like? I'm more of a liquid lover myself 😁

Congrats to everyone on the list and thanks for all the work you do to put this all together each week, Asher!

SBI has been sent to @dragonblades, congrats on your score!
OK, I think I have hit #30 twice now. But if someone sponsored it, I'd probably never hit it again, LMAO
Maybe when HF21 hits shit will hit the fan again and THAT will be how I get in the top ten... >:D Hey, it could happen. HF20 is the only time I've ever showed up on the curation board, because I was one of the only ones voting that week. XD

OK, I think I have hit #30 twice now. But if someone sponsored it, I'd probably never hit it again

Haha, yeah, that sounds about right :)

Good luck for the coming week, lucky number 25 is my prediction!

OOOH eyes on the prize, man. :D

Daaaaamn top 5 son, that's what I'm talking about, my highest finish ever, I'd like to thank PAL and SPT for helping me out and finding cool posts to engage with on the regular. I even beat @brittandjosie and @simplymike lol I need to frame this weeks results in case it never happens again lol

Nicely done!

Anywhere in the 10 is pretty damn good, glad to hear palnet has boosted your score. Cheers!

Lord of the Jess went hard!

Ha ha.....😁

Thank you so much brother.

So cool! I wasn't expecting to be in the top 15%! I'm totally stoked! Thank you for sharing some Steem πŸ™‚ you're awesome 😁

Posted using Partiko Android

Just sneaked in for a prize this week, well done! :)

Thanks Asher for hosting the league. Not overly concerned about slipping with the comments as curation is what I am kind of concentrating on now and trying to get to 5 SP per 1000 SP.Thanks peter at @fullcoverbetting for the sbi it is really appreciated.

Jammy git you are, slacking off and still landing a prize :P

Congrats, and good luck with the 5 SP per 1000 - a big ask. No idea how the HF will affect things. I was hopeful that folks could double their CR, but with this 1 minute auction replacing the 15, I have no idea how it'll pan out.

I think some of us will do well from this and it just needs a bit of thought. I don't like the one minute thing either as it will become a lottery. Jammy is good and need to do a bit extra next week as number 17 is the target .

Thanks for mentioning eSteem app. Kindly join our Discord or Telegram channel for more benefits and offers on eSteem, don't miss our amazing updates.

Niiiice I'll take it ! Thx to that Meester ! Boom πŸ’£

Congratulation to the winners and thanks for having my little pie provided by the great steemit statistician @abh12345 as 1 Steem. it does not matter for me whether it is 1 or 100, the value of that steem when in a league with the heavy weights of this great platform makes it priceless.

I was about to comment that my name is not listed in this while i checked in mobile first and today when i opened this PC also initially I did not saw my name. Finally it was a surprise for me to see my name close to the first ten. I believe there is some improvement in my performance and thanks again for providing this summary in its least complicated way.

I hope I can try for a number within the 10, is it so????

The hope is that 1 STEEM will be worth much more in the future :)

Good luck on rising up into the top 10!

Hey, @abh12345.

I was hoping to be over a hundred comments again, but didn't quite make it.

Looks like you've got someone hitting some of your comments. I must have missed out on why (which is okay). Since these downvotes are often indiscriminate, people who are generally aligned one way can end up downvoting those who are mostly on their side, or neutral, just because.

And I guess this is supposed to improve with the EIP and HF21? :)

Well, anyway, thank you Asher for all you do, which I guess includes taking the hits.

Congratulations to everyone in the Top 25. Good to see the numbers up. Looks like we've got a few well new folks making it up the ranks.

Onward and upward.

Hi Glen

Just 5 short of what I think is a solid enough target for a working man, especially as your average comment length is likely way above average.

Yes i have upset a rogue account, but really don't mind this low value hits and would rather they be on my comments as opposed to other league members. Don't worry about give them a boost, but the gesture is very much appreciated.

We do have a nice mix of new and old members at present, and that is really good to see.

Onward and upward we go :)

re: don't worry about give them a boost

It's a personal thing. I see perfectly good comments grayed out because someone's got a bee in their bonnet, well, you know, if I can, I like to ungray them. So, it's kind of more of a matter of making them readable so I don't have to go and click on them first kind of deal. :)

I understand, and did go round doing the same in places yesterday.

Hopefully the bee will buzz off soon enough :)

Yeahhh great list again, @tattoodjay @dswie and @dreemsteem well done but to the whole list I say we rock on to another week or will we be interrupted by a FORK We will see , thanks @abh12345 love the charts

Thank you @brittandjosie, another top 10 finish for you this week :) Have a good one!

Right back at ya....

nice work asher and to all that engaged during the week. The league looks a good lot different now to a few months ago

Thanks Paula!

Still a fair few long term entrants in there but nice to see a good mix :)

Congratulations to everyone who "made it" into the colors this week, and to top finisher @tattoodjay, of course!

And thanks @abh12345 for running the show!

I have β€” sadly β€” been very absent for these pages for a while; life is just not "cooperating" with giving me time for things such as blogging and social media. I do have all sorts of good intentions... but we all know what "they" say about that!

Have a great week, everyone!

Thanks for dropping by @denmarkguy

I am waiting for life to require me to have less time here, and then I'll likely want the opposite to be the case soon enough. Have a good week too :)

Woohoo! Finally a week where I was not sick and able to work at a better level. Thank you so much, @abh12345. This league is so helpful and encouraging for me. I recommend it constantly and try to get others to come and join and watch how the pros do it. You are awesome :)

Well done this week, illness free and the results show :)

Thank you for championing the leagues and well done this time around!

Howdy sir Asher! Great job on another busy week, I see the reigning Champ is still going strong! Congratulations to everyone who made the charts, it takes consistency, especially in the summer months!

Thank you @janton. Yes he's way clear this week, I wonder if anyone will come out of the pack to challenge.

Thanks again for sponsoring a number, we are still growing in that respect which is great to see.

Howdy sir Asher! Yes, I see so many good things happening with Steemit that I don't understand why so many are talking about leaving or have left. Maybe I'm gullible but I don't see anything but growth ahead! About the League, that's one thing about it, you never know who's going to come on strong in any given week.

I congratulate the chosen friend, congratulations to the host @abh12345

Dear @abh12345
I'm quite sure that I wanted to join this league, even remembering I commented on one your later posts! But I can't find it... I don't know is it a deja vu or I'm missing something and can't see that! But again here I ask it, I would like to join your league. Please consider me too.
