This giveaway has ended. Thanks to all who participated! I made it down to 20.64% voting power as I just don't want to spend the time to verify. I even upvoted the people who didn't qualify, but only after upvoting everyone else.
And -- the bug that was present last time also was, while I was processing replies -- it was a replies page I had already loaded, and scrolled down until I saw a reply in gray instead of black (meaning, I already read it). Starting from the last black one, I process all those replies, from bottom up, and then reload the page to get the most recent replies. Then I scrolled down until I saw the ones in gray, and started processing again.
But when I went back, there were a whole bunch I had missed! My apologies for having the reward amounts not quite be in chronological order.
[Still not feeling great today but I don't want to make everyone wait for me to spend the copious amount of time to verify manually (I should write a script to verify, but, I can't write software any more). So, I'm just upvoting everyone who has responded to this point, in chronological order, 2017-08-17 Thu 3:13 pm Eastern.]
[FYI not feeling great this evening, heading to bed -- I will process everything in chronological order though!]
I will run this giveaway until my voting power is below 30%. I won't always be in front of the computer -- but, I will process the comments in the order that they are written in.
To qualify for a 100% upvote on the comment that you leave on this post, you need to:
- Follow me if you haven't already. If you have unfollowed me in the past, you do not qualify.
- Upvote this post.
- Resteem this post.
- Convince someone else to follow me.
- Comment on this post, mentioning the name of the person who you got to follow me.
I will verify using these tools:
- https://steemnow.com/ -- to see my voting power, and recent activity.
- https://steem.makerwannabe.com/index.php -- to see follows and unfollows.
- https://steemd.com/ -- to verify this post was voted up.
- Click on your user -- to verify you've resteemed it.
Note that the person you got to follow me, can also qualify by signing up a third person (etc).
Also, you can receive multiple 100% upvotes by getting more people to follow, and making a comment for each of them.
Note that I tried something like this early on, but I wasn't a whale so my upvote didn't mean anything (it's $3.63 right now), and I asked for each recipient to obtain for me 3 followers. So, this should be a little easier, and I'll post an update on whether it was worth it, and the metrics.
Also, note that I'll be running some errands this afternoon so don't worry if it seems like I'm ignoring you -- I will process the comments in chronological order. Enjoy! :)
