Giving Back 2! SIMPLE Contest with 50% Chance to WIN STEEM!!! 💲 💲 💲

in giving-back •  8 months ago

Calling All Contest Lovers!!!

Here is an Easy Contest and you have a 50/50 chance to WIN Some STEEM!!! 💲 💲 💲

[January 18th 2018 UPDATE: This Contest is now CLOSED. I have paid out STEEM to 25 Winners. Thanks to everyone who played!]

Last week I started my Giving Back series. #giving-back My first post went very well! I gave 25% UP votes to over 50 people, just for commenting in a way that would make me believe they are HUMAN and not a bot! I loved all the great comments!!! 💗

That Contest is now Officially Over.

How Do I Enter THIS Contest?

Click "Reply" then type in either "NEAR" or "FAR", then click "Post."

That's It!!! But keep reading if you want all the Details on how the winners are picked and what the PRIZES are!

Simple Rules!

To ENTER - Reply ONCE with the work NEAR or the word FAR in your comment. Make it the only word on that line, so I can see it easily. :) You can add more to your comment, but please put it on a separate line or paragraph.

How to tell if NEAR or FAR is a winner?

If the person who plays the game 5 comments after yours has a name that starts with a letter that is NEAR yours, and you wrote NEAR, then you WIN!

If the person who plays the game 5 comments after yours has a name that starts with a letter that is FAR from yours, and you wrote FAR, then you WIN!

How can you tell who is 5 comments after any comment?

I will check steemd.com and look at the comments listed there. For example, this link shows the comments in chronological order that I got on my first Give Away:
https://steemd.com/giving-back/@kenny-crane/giving-back-free-vote-from-a-human-to-a-human
I'm pretty sure they are in chronological order! In any case, that is where I will be looking 5 qualifying comments ahead to see if a person's Entry of NEAR or FAR is a Winner!

A qualifying comment is a Reply to This Post (not to another reply) which correctly entered the contest by writing NEAR or FAR on a line of their Reply. I use "comment" and "reply" for the same thing. A reply to this post.

ONE ENTRY PER PERSON! Only the FIRST qualifying comment by a person will in fact be a qualifying comment and an Entry in this contest!

Please Define NEAR and FAR!

Surely! There are 26 letters in the English alphabet. A letter is NEAR if it is 0 to 12 letters away, and FAR if it is 13 to 25 letters away, moving forward. The letters wrap around. So, for example!

If my name here was alex, then my name starts with A and another person's name is NEAR if their name starts with

A B C D E F G H I J K L M

and FAR if it starts with

N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z

Another example!

My name is kenny-crane so my name starts with K and another person is NEAR if their name starts with

K L M N O P Q R S T U V W

and FAR if it starts with

X Y Z A B C D E F G H I J

GET IT??? 😁

I will limit this to the First 25 WINNERS!!! Yes, there will be up to 25 Winners of STEEM. Each person who plays will have a 50/50 chance of being a WINNER which depends on the name of the person 5 comments after of you in time, which is fairly RANDOM!

I will be the sole judge of who is a Winner!

This Contest Ends when there are 25 WINNERS, whenever that happens to be.

You do NOT have to UP vote this post. But it would be NICE! 👍 💗 😁

You do NOT have to Resteem this post or Tweet it or anything. But you could.

The PRIZES!!! What Are The PRIZES!!!!

Okay, thanks for reading this far! 😁

The FIRST 5 WINNERS Get 1.6 STEEM sent to their account from my account.
The NEXT 5 WINNERS Get 0.8 STEEM sent to their account from my account.
The NEXT 5 WINNERS Get 0.4 STEEM sent to their account from my account.
The NEXT 5 WINNERS Get 0.2 STEEM sent to their account from my account.
The LAST 5 WINNERS Get 0.1 STEEM sent to their account from my account.

That adds up to 15.5 STEEM in the PRIZE POOL. At current STEEM prices of over $6, that's almost $100 !!!

ENTER NOW!!! As you can see, the PRIZE halves after each 5 Winners!

Winning entries will be paid within 48 hours of entry. If that doesn't happen, please point it out to me, as a comment here!

MORE Fun And Contests Coming!!!

Stay tuned! Maybe Follow me? :) THANKS!!! 💗

So while thinking of what I could use as a pic for this post, nothing clicked for Near or Far. BUT there was a great 90s Rock tune called, "Here And Now" by Letters To Cleo. I took a screen shot from 2 seconds into the video. That is singer Kay Hanley. Do you like 90s Rock? Feel free to drop a video into your Contest Reply Entry, below!

Click PLAY to listen to this cool 90s Rock song, while you Reply NEAR or FAR, Here and NOW!!! 😁

Far across the distance
And spaces between us
You have come to show you go on

Near, far, wherever you are
I believe that the heart does go on
Once more you open the door
And you're here in my heart
And my heart will go on and on

Celine Dion Lyrics to
"My Heart Will Go On"
