$ Upvote and resteem this post - as a small thank-you for my reading your blog.
$ If you are chosen then I will reply to your comment.
$ If you are not chosen, then you may try again in the future; I may leave a comment with suggestions.
$ That's it! Look forward to seeing our highly creative Steemian on board!

The Proper Rules

As of today, the Minnows Accelerator Project (MAP) is on its 19th MAP contest with over 100 MAP members. Every few days a NEW Signup page is published to encourage fresh participants. The latest Signup page can always be found on the @accelerator Homepage website link. The Minnows Accelerator Project is managed by me, @rycharde, but has outgrown my personal account, hence the creation of @accelerator. Please follow this account for all updates, contests and publications.

So how will this work? Please read the rules carefully. They are not complicated but there are a few steps involved.

Step 1 - Are you a minnow? [UPDATED]

As the Steemit platform grows, so the definition of "minnow" needs to be flexible. After some thought, I am currently setting the definition as a user with less than 1000 SP (excluding any delegated SP) and fewer than 1000 followers. If you have under 1000 SP because you have cashed out, then you don't count as a minnow. You must also be a Steemian for at least one month. I am prepared to be flexible to any outliers, just tell me in your comment.

Step 2 - Sign up with a comment to this post.

Very simply, if you wish to be considered then just add a comment below, then upvote and resteem this post. I will look through each blog in the order in which comments are left based on their timestamp. I shall also repost the Signup pages when they get too full; there will always be a link to the latest page on the @accelerator profile page.

Step 3 - Six content creators chosen for Step 4

I will select the first six good content creators to be included in a post entitled "Six of the Best".

I know there is a subjective element to this, but I do read a lot of posts and am also a published author of non-fiction. To avoid disappointment, let me highlight a very short list of the qualities I shall be looking for. This Signups post will be reposted at the start of every month, so if you have made significant strides in your blogging skills you are certainly welcome to add your name again.

= I shall be looking at your recent blog posts, not just one article.
= Your posts must be your own work. It is very easy to check for plagiarism online, even if the bots don't catch it.
= If you are mainly a writer, please check for punctuation and spelling. The editors on Steemit and chainBB will underline spelling errors but it is up to you to correct them.
= Images must be appropriate, resized to fit the text and give balance and aesthetic appeal to the article.
= If you are mainly posting artwork or videos, it really helps to add at least a paragraph about the content or the inspiration behind the work.
= I shall not select bloggers whose main topics are political or religious, or any other topic that is by its nature partisan and potentially divisive. [NEW!]
= And finally, I shall be scanning your comments and replies to see that you are already engaging with other established content creators. I expect all winners to use their delegated 200 SP wisely.

Step 4 - Six of the Best up for votes [UPDATED]

Every 1 or 2 days I shall publish a "Six of the Best" article with a list of the six chosen content creators. The rest of the community can vote on their favourite minnow authors. Voting currently takes place using both online polls and upvotes. I will ignore bot votes.

These six minnows are already winners! I will use a feature known as Reward Distribution, available within chainBB, to give each of the minnows a 10% share in the author rewards generated by each post. These will automatically appear in each user's account on payout, and will be paid in 100% SP. I will also upvote and resteem at least one recent article from each participant. Each person will also be invited to a private chatroom dedicated to MAP participants to help in future growth.

At the end of the 7-day reward period, the person with the highest number of human votes will win 200 SP delegated for 7 days! If the voting is very close, I will consider having more than one winner.

MAP members are also now published in the community magazine, "Tales from the MAP Room"; this also uses the Reward Distribution feature to share the post rewards with each author. A new venture is also being launched to promote collaborative posts across different creative disciplines. Stay tuned by following @accelerator!

Step 5 - Repeat Steps 3 and 4

I will continue to go through this Signup list of comments and select six authors every day or two. There is no need to leave multiple comments. I will create a new Signup page about every 10 days.

The aim of the Minnows Accelerator Project is to help talented minnows accelerate their progress on Steemit.

You may also leave questions if anything above is unclear.

If you wish me to read your blog, you may use the magic phrase "read me!"

If you just wish to leave a comment, don't use the magic phrase!

This is a great project, community and opportunity. I was in MAP7 and this really helps me growing my community and improving my content:-) I learned a lot from fellow MAP participants.

Being involved on Steemit is great fun and I noticed you had joined this. Noticed a great improvement in your relaxing into your creative side.

Thank you, glad to read this:-) I think it's really fun! Steemit is a nice play for blogging and creative work <3

For me as a new steemian is quite a strange than steem needs projects like this at all. Anyway, we appreciate your work.

Hello, can I try again? :)

Read me!

This is a great project I'm excited to hear more

I want to join the project to start conversations and find people to talk to about common hobbies. Regarding that I write mostly about gaming, but delve into interesting tech news and politics.

I'd like an opportunity to be part of this. I post about politics and my podcast daily.

Congratulations! You have been selected for the next round of Six of the Best MAP23.

When there are all six content creators, I will create a new post and inform you in a comment here or on one of your recent articles.

For the moment, please take a look at some of the current MAP contests to see how they work - links can be found on the @accelerator profile page. Thanks!

Thanks! I'm always checking the "Six of the Best" for new content.

I've never participated in such a contest and feel as it would help me increase my following as well as help me continue building my writing and blogging platform.

Congratulations! You have been selected for the next round of Six of the Best MAP20.

I just came across your comment on my blog and in all honesty it's excellent that you're helping out us new users.Since i've joined I can't get enough of steemit,scrolling through the blog feed can be very enlightening.
This sounds like a great opportunity to get my recipes noticed on steemit.

Question: if we have more than 1000 SP, but less than 1000 followers, do we qualify, or do both conditions need to be met?

I have the luxury of being flexible, so sometimes one of the six participants is either a newbie or a more experienced Steemit member.

Thanks so much! I'm trying to catch up and figure out all the rules now! :D I appreciate the exception allowing. :)

Terrific idea. Thank you. Yes, I've been seeing the #minnowsupport and #minnowsunite tags, and wasn't sure how to appropriately use them, but your post here makes good sense. Yeah, and I greatly appreciate any effort to keep the new Steemians around long enough to know what a treasure this community can be. In fact, I bailed out after feeling invisible after my first few posts, and took a year-long hiatus until around a month ago. Now I'm a devoted fan, and growing more appreciative by the day. Thanks for this. Upvoting and resteeming now.

i want to participation.... why i signup

Whew - Just made the one-month requirement!! Today!

But alas, I can't upvote this post. Wait, I take this back. I could, but it would add a big 0 to the balance. Nothing there to give. So, I will come back and upvote later, after the refill the kitty magic has happened.

In the meantime, I love to be considered for the project. I think it will help me figure out this platform and put it to good use.

So, yes, please- Read me.

Great project and opportunity.
I'm interested so would like to sign up.
I have to wait your next SignUp post?
I signed up on Steemit just eight days ago and I hope that the quality/originality off my content is good enough for a flexible acceptance approach from you.
Thank you!

My posts are always available for perusal, comment, criticism, and contributions. I hope you find them useful, informative, and potentially entertaining at times (I like to make references, hide links & easter eggs).

Thanks for offering aid in support and exposure for new steemians, those who put in more effort than copypasta and memes would like to be seen more prominently above the herd.

PS: I upvoted this post although it's 12 days old, but it cannot be resteemed at this point, and there's no newer other than "6 of the best".

Farnsworth Good News!

Thank you, I hope I can continue to produce informative and useful content. If not I'll settle for making an ass of myself for your idle distraction as that's better than 0-filling my memory banks.

I would be happy to participate. Publishing and reading content on Steemit became like my hobby recently. And what I like about Steemit is that it's a real community where people want to support each other. Didn't see a single comment including hate speach.

Can someone be nominated for this project or do they have to sign themselves up for it?

You sign yourself up, then we have a look at your blog.
You will notice some people have been nominated - these are referrals from existing MAP members, which helps speed up the process, but are not absolutely necessary. Signups are open to anyone interested.

Hi there I'd love to be considered :)

Thank you so much, we need all of the help that we can get! As you will see I have been active on the page that you posted subsequently and I have shared the post to two sites on Discord. Thank you once again! Blessings! Stephen

OK - Yesterday I wrote a satire and humor-filled article on Ponzi-schemes and was steered to this page.

Currently I'm trying to grasp how it all works and should be happy to join the community.

I'm all for supporting minnows (not just because I am one) because I know there's a lot of great content being overlooked.

Peace

Yes, once the 7 days reward period has elapsed it also stops resteems! The important thing is that signup comments still work.

Thank you kindly sir...

Hello ! I'd like to be part of the initiative. I'm a Spiritual writer that is looking to be seen along the fields of spam ^^ I really try to provide Unique and good quality articles per day and I'm currently writing a steem powered book.

Much love and hope I get accepted !

Also it's not allowing me to reblog this due to 7 days passed sync posting.

Count me in. Upvoted and resteemed

You are already a MAP member - you participated before. One cannot take part twice; there is no point as this is for prospective new members. Please go to the chatroom for further support and advice. Thanks.

Hey guys, I'd like to give it another shot.
I finished up in 2nd place last time I'd love to give it horns and finish in 1st place this time. Consider this my entry if you'll have me.

Here's what I've done today.
https://steemit.com/steemit-health/@stephb/could-crypto-trading-be-causing-your-heart-burn-or-acid-reflux

Good luck to everyone entering.

Hi there, this looks like a great opportunity to get more notice, see other talented steemians and all help each other out, I've not been doing this for long although I've been a keen photographer and traveler for many years, so I hope I'm doing this correctly...

Please read me...

Thanks for the opportunity to increase my audience on Steemit. Could you clarify what you mean by using delegated SP "wisely"? I hope this doesn't make me seem obtuse--I'm just new to the community and want to better understand what is acceptable behavior. Thanks!

Darn I missed this!

This is an on-going signup page - nobody can be "late"! Even if the post has gone beyond the 7-day payout date, it remains active until I create a new one. Then the new link will be on the @accelerator profile page.

Then

I love to participate 🌸💖🌸

I wish to participate not only to evolve as a better blogger and content creator, but also to learn from my fellow mates. Great forum to grow better. Looks like fun!

Congratz, you just have been resteemed by @pixresteemer!
(All right but who is pixresteemer?)

This post has received a 0.78 % upvote from @drotto thanks to: @banjo.

Nice job! Thank you very much!

I hope to win, because I'm getting bored so small fish, I want to be a big fish that can raise other small fish, if I have the money I will buy steem power in large quantities, because I feel sorry for my friends, the post is very long, his hands tired in writing, but did not get the sound. thanks.

I'm interested in this contest. I write mainly on Christianity, relationship and #others. Kindly add me in.

Please consider my request to participate in MAP. I would like to enter your contest! Thank you!
and read me!

This is a great opportunity for minnow like me and others to grow. As you are supporting us by minnowsupport project , this is really huge for us. I don't no when i and other minnow will pay your debt . You are contributing the socity. You are doing great works. I don't know how to write my feelings towards you for giving us this huge opportunity.

And i want to be in contest

So..... @accelerator, OF COURSE, I'D LIKE TO BE CONSIDERED, but more importantly, can you let me know how I can help newbie Minnows???? Growing one's reputation here on Steemit, is a daunting process, and it takes a heck of a lot of effort to get anywhere. You have a Blog that gets someone's attention, only to learn that the next 10 points in reputation will be 10 times harder to achieve. Every little bit of SP helps, and people just posting that #introduceyourself blog, need every bit of help I can give them.

In the twenty-first century, the robot will take the place which slave labor occupied in ancient civilization.

Dear @accelerator, It would be an honor to participate in the MAP contest. I feel really good about it and know it'll be an awesome experience.

I joined the steemit community exactly 24 days ago. Although it's not up to a month but I've been really active on here and have met a lot of people.

I mostly blog about Motivation and Happiness.
Thank you for your consideration.

Best Regards
OJ{Happy Fairy}

What if my content is being reposted? So I wrote Lions will fight Bears (https://steemit.com/writing/@neilperry/lions-will-fight-bears-the-moscow-coup) and posted it before on another site before being convinced to try my hand here. What would you say on that?

That's OK, just include the link back and your copyright notice.
Thanks

Yes, i would like to join ! Thank You for the opportunity! :-)
i don't know how to re steem this ...... :(

You are already a MAP member - you participated before. One cannot take part twice; there is no point as this is for prospective new members. Please go to the chatroom for further support and advice. Thanks.

Great ! thank you for your support ! I trust you will read our contents from blog and will make decision. Let's act to change the world.

Please read your Replies feed - you are in MAP19 already and best go there asap!
Thanks

Oh yes. Thank you very much. We already have done and commented on MAP19 post. Thanks

Very Nice, and good idea

Hey :)
It would be really nice if you'd take a look on my channel. In case I'm not being selected it would be awesom if you'd tell me what I can do better :)
