News

The Minnows Accelerator Project will now be run from the new @accelerator account, but will still be managed by @rycharde. Please read The Minnows Accelerator Project Has a New Account - Please Follow for full information.

What Do the Content Creators Need to Do Now?

If you are one of Six listed below, then this is your chance to show everybody your best work - and to get votes.

= Firstly, please write a comment with links to some of your best recent articles. I would say perhaps 2-4 articles from the last 2-4 weeks.

= Then, please resteem this post to your followers so that they may come and vote for you.

= You should also announce this on your current posts. This contest will last for 7 days, so you have time to spread the word. I have also found that appropriate comments with a linkback also work very well. Please don't spam Steemit, as that can easily be seen.

= And then, I have created a new Discord chatroom for all the people who make it to Six of the Best. Feel free to come and chat with current and past participants, and promote your blog. Go to M-A-P Discord chatroom now. Note, this is ONLY for participants.

How to Vote for Your Favourite Steemian Author [NEW!]

This part has changed and I am now using Poll-Maker AND comment votes.

= Firstly, make sure you read all the six blogs - you may discover something new and an author you had not noticed before.

= Also, you are free to add comments and interact with each author.

= But most importantly, vote for your favourite author or authors in the link below. You may only vote one time but you can vote for more than one author - so think about it carefully! AND you can upvote the author's comment thread - but please wait for the author to create their first comment with a short list of recent articles. Before anybody asks, yes, you can vote twice: once in the poll and once in the comment upvote. Any votes by bots will be removed - if you use a bot that is then followed by an army of voters, you will just be given a score of zero. [NEW!]

= What will you get? Apart from the warm glow of satisfaction at having helped a fellow Steemian, I shall upvote any interesting comments.

What Are The Prizes?

= The main prize is of 200 SP delegated for 7 days. (This will increase as we get more sponsorship!)

= However, every participant listed below will also receive 10% of the rewards generated for this article. This is possible using the Reward Distribution feature for articles.

= Also, every participant is invited to join a new Discord chatroom dedicated exclusively to MAP members.

= Every MAP Member may also be featured in our "Tales from the MAP Room" magazine.

= [NEW!] Every MAP Member will be able to participate in out new Collaborative Creations Competition - coming in a few days!

Also, take this as an opportunity to network with each other; you are free to comment and discuss your experiences as authors and readers.

Let the Accelerator begin!


Sponsorship News

The Minnows Accelerator Project has received its first sponsor! Many thanks to @eturnerx for delegating 1000 SP towards the project.

Thanks also to existing members of MAP who have expressed an interest in supporting @accelerator by increasing its voting power. Deep thanks to those MAP members who have recently delegated SP to the community: @heart-to-heart. This is especially generous as these are not large whale accounts bur minnows themselves who are helping the whole MAP community grow organically and steadily.

MAP donors: @heart-to-heart - @kerlund74 - @macchiata - @spaingaroo - @inquiringtimes

The plan is to make the winning prize more significant, eventually reaching 200 SP delegated for 4 weeks, rather than the current 1 week. Assuming a peak of one winner per day (remembering that there could be more than one winner per contest) for 4 weeks, plus the 7-day cooling period when delegated SP is returned to the owner but cannot be used, then I am looking at 35 days times 200 SP, giving a total needed of 7,000 SP. We already have 1,220 SP so just under 6,000 SP more to go! To delegate SP to this project, or to donate funds, please leave a comment or come chat to @rycharde on Discord.


If you would like to be considered for the next round, then please sign up at Minnows Accelerator Project [August 2017 Signups].

Yo @waphilip...

Just read your post on that gamer friend of yours...left my reaction to the story in its comments, but goddamn...still hungover on that reaction.

Also heard your 27th Mid-Afternoon thoughts log...your stuff is good, man. You've got my vote.

Aye appreciate the love callis!

I gotchu bro ;D

I loved writing writing that story, so i'm glad you liked it!

Not hard to see why. If I had a friend like that I'd be honoured to write a post like that too. Unfortunately out of all my friends I'm the most versatile and capable gamer (provided its with a keyboard and mouse, and not a controller), but my friends are dicks so they'll never say it XD

Wouldn't have it any other way though...love them bros.

the compliments really mean a lot!

Anytime, m8.

I'm going to check your post out in a sec! See ya on the discord!

Please do, and lemme know what you think. Put a lot of time into each.

And yeah, I'm already on the channel. Talk soon there, maybe?

·

Best of luck to you @waphilip... you know, typing it after reading your posts I finally realized it was wa philip instead of wap hilip. I'm dumb apparently.

Enjoyed your blog! See you in the Discord Channel!

·

Thank you so much @mikepm 😊 so kind.
Glad you liked it, yeah I understand that my cat is 15 years old and I can't imagine how it would be not having him around. It's like loosing a family member.

·

Thank you so much:)

I would like to say first that 'grateful' doesn't even begin to cover how honoured and privileged I feel to be on that list, one of the nominees for the MAP #18. Thank you so much for giving me the chance to be here.

That being said, here are the last four articles I wrote that I thought had a great deal of weight in them:

(https://steemit.com/science/@callistanix/remodeling-the-helix)
My view of modern genetic alteration and what it suggests for the species at large, as well as a little bit of funny :P

(https://steemit.com/rebellion/@callistanix/seeds-of-r-evolution)
Lengthy piece about rebellion and its fiery beauty, personal experiences with it, what purposes it serves in human development, and how it may be perceived, with a great deal of work put into it.

(https://steemit.com/steemit/@callistanix/ratio-sui-sustinere)
My thoughts on a minor conflict on Steemit I had observed recently, as well certain realizations I had about the platform itself and its patrons.

(https://steemit.com/baywatch/@callistanix/injustice-league)
Thoughts on modern day review mechanics and their reflection of people's judgments of others. Was also nominated for the Minnow Faucet Community.

I hope you enjoy anything you may read there, and hopefully think worthy enough of an upvote or a MAPVote. And if there's anything that struck you about what I've written, feel free to let me know in the comments here or in the respective post. Cheers, best of luck to my fellow competitors, and thanks once again =D

Peace :)

Very kind of you! I'm still in "dual mode" so you will all see some upvotes and resteems either from myself @rycharde or my alter-ego @accelerator - possibly from both!

Still in transition as I hope @accelerator will receive more support from donations and/or delegated SP.

Very kind of you! I'm still in "dual mode"

And very kind of you to be running the MAP program for all us minnows out there :D
Thank you :)

you will all see some upvotes and resteems either from myself @rycharde or my alter-ego @accelerator - possibly from both!

Sounds exciting :D

Still in transition as I hope @accelerator will receive more support from donations and/or delegated SP.

It'll sure pickup steam in no time. I recall we just got given more SP recently for the other pet project the Accelerator is running.

I like your stuff mate ^_^ Here's an upvote for you. Wish you luck !

Thanks @trumpman :D :D

Appreciate it! =D

Thank you so much for including me in this week's edition of the MAP Contest! I am excited to share some of my content with you.

I just completed work on a piece that was posted moments ago in the Fiction Writing Category. This is a small snippet of a longer story I have been working on. This Particular chapter is called: A Setback at Park Place Towers - https://steemit.com/writing/@mikepm74/fiction-a-setback-at-park-place-towers

The second piece I would like to submit was authored over the weekend. In my short time on Steem so far, If there is one lesson I have learned that surpasses all the others, it is that engagement and relationships are what drive success on this platform. As such, I wanted to share a bit of advice on how to approach your time on Steem. The post has garnered quite a conversation in the comments, and I would love all of you to come and join the conversation. This one is called - What do you do First on Steem? It's Important: https://steemit.com/steemit/@mikepm74/what-do-you-do-first-on-steem-it-s-important

The third piece I would like to share with you is a story that I created based on a Picture Writing Prompt. This was one of the first posts I created purely for Steem, and I was lucky enough to have it discovered by a member of the Curie team and earn their curation upvote. This is the story of a man who did not give up, even till the end of his journey. It is entitled: On His Own Terms - https://steemit.com/writingchallange/@mikepm74/creative-writing-challenge-task-7-the-objects-on-his-own-terms

Edited to add my 4th post for you guys. This is the true story (TRUE STORY! <1.0 SBD to the first person to comment where that comes from>) of an allergy that is spreading in the Southern United States that people should be aware of: https://steemit.com/wellness/@mikepm74/when-you-wake-up-at-night-and-cannot-breathe-non-fiction

Thank you to everyone who visits my posts, takes part in this contest, and supports @accelerator and the initiative of this project! I appreciate the opportunity to have all of you visit my little piece of the blockchain!

Thanks for taking the time to write such a complete intro.

Good luck to everyone!

MAP18 has finished and the final scores of the poll plus upvotes are:

@saffisara =19
@callistanix = 11
@waphilip = 11
@himshweta =11
@mikepm74 = 10
@prostosun = 3

So @saffisara is a clear winner, although the runner-up are very very close.

Nice project, good luck with everything :)

I'll take today and check out the six.

Good luck @mikepm74, well deserved

·

Thanks @jasonshick! Appreciate the support!

I wish good Luck to you all!! Go go go Saffisara 😉😉😉😆 😆 😆
