More Open Mic Sponsors

Over the last week Open Mic was contacted and offered some more sponsorship from:

@ausbitbank is a top 20 witness on Steemit involved in more supporting projects on the Steem blockchain than I can list. He is a big part of the minnowsupportproject.org, the Peace, Abundance, and Liberty network on Discord, and delegates to many good causes on Steemit. You can vote for him as a wtness here. He just reached out and donated 100 Steem per week to help Open Mic

They helped me and countless others get our posts seen when we first started on the platform. Many Open Mic musicians have been featured on their weekly Author's Showcase posts. They are a top 20 witness and have contributed 25 Steem per week for the next two months to help Open Mic. You can vote for them as witness here

MSP-Waves Radio in association with the Minnow Support Project and the Peace, Abundance, Liberty Network is a weekly radio program hosted by @Krystle, @swelker101, and @Isaria that features the weekly Top 5 judges picks from Steemit Open Mic. Not only do they also give weekly prizes to audience picked performers from the contest, but they have also started sponsoring Open Mic with a 25 Steem weekly donation! How cool is that? Thank you for helping support musicians on the Steemit platform.

And thanks to @meno's initiative the community has come together to support Open Mic. Many of you have created posts in support of the Open Mic community and have donated a portion of the rewards from those posts to @openmic so we can keep doing what we do, build a great community of musicians on Steemit. You guys are the best and we feel appreciative and inspired!

Operation We Are The Open Mic --- by @meno

Special thanks to @lukestokes for his delegation of 5,000 SP to the @openmic account. This helps each entry earn a little more for their performances.


NOTE TO SCAMMERS: I have closed most of the holes scammers have found to cheat the contest except for one. Now people are stealing valid entries from the current week and entering it as their own thinking that because the person in the video says the words Steemit Open Mic Week (current week number) that I will not notice it was already entered. This is the worst form of cheating possible and I have started flagging those caught doing this.

From now on, anyone entering Open Mic must say Steemit Open Mic Week Number (current week number) and their username to have a valid entry. This is to stop scammers from stealing your video and entering it as their own.

Steemit Open Mic Process

Keeping it short and sweet, here is the flow of considerations for the Steemit Open Mic contest:-

  • Need to promote community participation in the spirit of Steemit Open Mic night.

  • So.. Steemit Open Mic submissions in comments, community voting and reblogging are encouraged.

  • However, we need to avoid public vote abuse and keep a certain standard for Steemit Open Mic night.

  • So.. community voting as the first filter, before internal voting.
  • Another problem: late submissions are usually disadvantaged as they get less attention on the contest post.
  • So.. we've tried to mitigate such a problem by including unique votes of Steemit Open Mic submissions in their own blog posts.
  • IT IS CRUCIAL WHEN YOU RECORD YOUR VIDEO THAT YOU SAY "STEEMIT OPEN MIC WEEK 90" AND YOUR USERNAME AT THE BEGINNING OF YOUR VIDEO

  • We're looking for real live musical performances for this contest. Some people have posted old videos from YouTube and it's difficult to verify that it's really them performing. They will be disqualified from the contest.

  • If you want a chance to earn the prize, make a new video and say STEEMIT OPEN MIC Week 90 at the start of it.

.

New Music Category Communities

Music Category communities are coming together on Steemit and if you're a music lover, please show support and join in the fun. Here are a few new places to find great music.

Suggestion: openmic must be the first tag to enter open mic, but adding other music-related tags (such as music, music-trail) may help your post get more attention and perhaps even get curated by those music curators.

If your song is an original song, add orginalmusic as your 2nd tag. This will help curators know it is an original song which currently pays a Steem bonus to you.

Thank you all for the participation!

Beautiful voice! Thanks for your submission! You remind me of a woman I once knew who used to sing like this. It's very romantic.

·
·

Thank you very much for your beautiful words. ❤

·

Wow @jhoxiris, eres increiblemente buena! Tu voz es muy hermosa. Gran video 😘 Muy buena tu versión de este clásico venezolano.

·

Muchas gracias @alinares por tu apoyo y lindas palabras.

Bravo mi niña. Siempre nos sorprendes agradablemente con tu música.

·
·

Muchas gracias Sr. @armandolnrs siempre es un placer para mi compartir mi música.

·

You are beautiful and your song is very cool. You sing really well! I think if you could keep it up and do this every week, you will be a reasonable contender. Just keep working on your sound and video. Your guitar was a bit out of tune, turn the camera sideways. You really have talent. I would keep it up. You do a great job. This song is a hard one to sing and play at the same time.

·
·

You are beautiful
And your song is very cool.
You sing really well!

While cute, this superfluous comment is considered to be spam, harms the blockchain, and is the reason why we will soon have to pay for comments like this with Resource Credits. The servers that maintain the blockchain are extremely expensive because of comments like this seeking low effort upvotes, so please do not reward this behavior.

Please consider using this link to give a small downvote of 15% or so to discourage these comments.

Any bot like this should respect the community by providing a whitelist to prevent the post in the first place and then provide a way to delete the comment for those who find this intrusive.

Dude, I don't think it's spam at all! I loved finding out I speak in haiku. I mean, I've been told I'm poetic. But this? I wasn't even trying and look at me go.

Yeah, I'm still struggling with this one. I wish the account would reply so I can 'talk to the human' but that's not happening, so battle of the bots for now...

Wow, tanks for the advice. Noted

Hi steemians. Here is my entry for this week's edition of the steemit openmic. Yesterday was father's day and I wish to dedicate this to all fathers in the world. I also use this as medium to ask the fathers to always create time for the family no matter how short. Five minutes means a lot to your wife or kids.

You should stop and take
A little time out with them
Just take five, Just take five
Stop your busy day
And take the time out
To see if they're alive

Though you're going out of your way
Just so you can pass by each day
Not a single word do you say
It's a reality and not a play

Start a little conversation now
It's alright, just take five
Just take five.

Hi everyone. Here is my entry for this week's open mic.

It's an original song I wrote called "Florida Girl" and it's about growing up near the beach and the sense of home that brought to me.

Hey guys, here's my entry this week, i hope you like it:) It's a Cover of "Perfect" by Ed Sheeran played in the xylophone.
