RE: Introducing: World Of Photography - Gamification Of Sharing Photography On Steemit - Earn XP, Upvotes And Steem By Sharing Your Photography

This sounds amazing...But couldn't grasp the base vote concept. Can i get what percent of upvote that means?


The base vote is determined by how many people are sharing and tagging their photos by the day. Look at the following example.

Let us assume that the base vote is worth $0.10:
If you are level 0 your upvote will be worth 0.1 * 0.10 = $0.01
if you are level 3 your upvote will be worth 3 * 0.10 = $0.30

Since the amount of people participating every day is not constant, and Steems regenerates 20% of voting power each day. The base vote will fluctuate and try to keep voting power at a optimal level.

Thanks for such illustrative response. Totally appreciate the Contest!

Good questions lead to elaborate answers ;)

Also, can we use any of the above # for any day or do we have to use specific hashtag for a specific day? Coz here it isn't mentioned but in your yesterday's post you had mentioned Specific Days with Specific Hashtag!

I have the overview for you here:

Monday: foodphotography and animalphotography
Tuesday: landscapephotography and cityscapephotography
Wednesday: architecturalphotography and vehiclephotography
Thursday: macrophotography and colourfulphotography
Friday: streetphotography and portraitphotography
Saturday: sportsphotography and smartphonephotography
Sunday: goldenhourphotography and longexposurephotography

Whenever you use a tag you will automatically be notified when the deadline is when you can expect a result. For the others tags, those are just for people that want to share other photos, not being limited by the categories of the contests

I live in Australia, not sure where you are but I have a question about time zone differences... for example if its Monday here its Sunday in America, so should I tag things with the previous days hash tag, or will my entries just go into the following week? sorry if this sounds silly but I am just a bit confused. :-)

Good question, I have added a server time to the status update responses. The deadline is for my timezone, which is GMT+1

Hi again @juliank, I too live in Australia, and although in my mind I think I know when GMT+1 is, that isn't helped by both Aus and UK messing with Summertime. I've noticed that steemit manages to say '22minutes ago', '17hours ago' and '?days ago', therefore isn't there some means in programming to align each person's blog to a steemit time. What I mean is if a blogger in Sydney Australia (which is often 1hr before me even though we both are 136* east of Greenwich - GMT +10) were to say his competition was to run seven days, then, from his hour in his locale, the competition might run exactly 7x24hrs, but the competition, in steemit would run 7x24 measured by steemit. I mean to say, a program can say when I blog in minutes ago, can also count minutes TO go (in my time) til end of comp.
I hope that's clear¿
I'm always waking people up, or talking to them when they fatigued. I'm surely not the only one to have challenges with global village times o'clock¿ 😇

Hi Juliank,
