This is the next contest in the Minnows Accelerator Project's "Six of the Best".
Each of the six authors below gets a share of this post's rewards
And one (or two) of them will win 200 SP delegated for 7 days
Please read this Signup article for how MAP works. If you are a minnow, you can also sign up at that page to see if you will be added to one of the future Six of the Best competitions.
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!

Let the Accelerator begin!
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.
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.
