What Is The PHC Top 3 All About?
In the Power House Creatives Discord, we love to talk about and rate our favourite movies, music and various other cool things. Many a time has been spent listing out our top picks but then we thought, “Why not expand this and let everyone have a go?”
After much discussion about how we can expand this to the rest of the community, we decided to create the PHC Top 3 Monthly Contest, where you can join in the fun and win prizes as well.
Each month, we'll start a new contest where we'll be asking you what your top 3 picks are for the chosen topic of that round by writing a blog post along with an entry fee. This entry fee is not only to make you eligible for the contest but to build the prize pool as well. The entry fee will be clarified when we start the contest but if your 3 nominations score the most points you can win a brilliant prize!
The topic of each round, along with deciding the prizes, will be discussed between 5 members of the Power House Creatives, henceforth known as “The Panel”. So let’s meet them!
How Can I Get Involved?
To begin with, this is a contest for the PHC community but we will be looking to expand to the wider steem community once we have got a little bit more familiar with it all!
How Will It Work?
This is not your average Top 3 quiz and the Panel have spent many an hour around the meeting room to decide on how it will work.
Step 1 - Contest Introduction Post
PHC members will need to keep a look out for our Contest Introduction post on the first of each month, this will mark the start of the contest and contain all the information about it!
In this introduction post, we'll announce the topic for the contest where you'll need to nominate your top 3 selections. The topic could be anything from movies, music, food etc.
Step 2 - Enter the Contest & Write About Your Top 3
To be eligible for the contest, you'll need to:
- Create a blog post with your top 3 nominations along with your reasoning behind these nominations.
- Split the post payout of your blog post 50/50 with the @phctop3 - this will be your entry fee and be added to the total prize pool for the month's contest.
Step 3 - The Panel Decides Their Own Top 10 & DPoll
Once all eligible submissions have been received, the Panel will get together and discuss their own top 10 from all the nominations. We'll record this discussion so you can hear how we came to decide the nominations for this top 10! This is just for a laugh and in no way will reflect the final outcome - you may berate our choices or agree with us, nothing like a healthy debate!
Then it's up to to you, the PHC and Steem community, to vote for your favourites on the dpoll. This dpoll will feature all of the submitted nominations from the community so you will have a wide range of choices!
Step 4 - DPoll Points System
This is a revolutionary new system (OK, maybe not THAT revolutionary), concocted by the Panel (with the help of a few maths teachers around the world) that we'll be using to decide the Top 3 Prize winners. Once the dpoll is completed, we'll add up the scores from the results and our internal points system, which we'll have more details about when we launch the poll.
Step 5 - Prizes Prizes Prizes!
Once we have tallied up the scores from the dpoll entrants, the prizes will be given out from the PHC Top 3 steem account to the top 3 places!
The prizes get divided up by a combination of the final position (1st, 2nd and 3rd) and by the amount of entry fee given. The other 25% will be left for the Panel. However, as the aim is to grow the account to give bigger prizes and upvotes to contest entries, we'll be keeping the 25% in there.
If anyone would like to delegate to @phctop3 to increase the upvote then that's of course welcomed and we thank you for it! Delegation links are at the bottom of the blog.
So there you have it, the PHC Top 3 monthly contest introduction post. We're looking forward to seeing how this all pans out and hope to keep the steem blockchain entertained with the responses we get from the Power House Creatives.
We may well expand to the wider steem network if we get a good response from this so keep your eyes peeled!
