NO NEW ENTRIES - Week 33 - Pay It Forward Curation Contest

in #payitforward3 years ago (edited)


Another week starting up and it's Thanksgiving week. My favorite holiday of the year as it's all about spending time with family, taking some time to reflect on and appreciate what and who you have in your life. Part of what I am Thankful for is the amazing community that has formed around the idea of helping others. So wanted to take a minute to say Thank You for your efforts!

The Pay It Forward Curation Contest is all about increasing exposure for high quality posts and increase the level of engagement on steemit. You can take part by entering the contest or just helping visit the entries and their featured posts. Everyone chooses their level of involvement and we appreciate the efforts of everyone who helps promote quality content on Steemit.

No changes of note so for the regulars go start curating and those of you who are here for the first time welcome and read below for the rules.

Note: @lynncoyle1 is taking a week or two off and this week I (@thedarkhorse) will be taking her place.

As always check back to this post often and scroll to the end to see a list of this week's curation entries!

How to Enter the Pay It Forward Curation Contest?

To enter the Curation Contest you will find 2 high quality blog posts written by reputation level 55 or lower steemians and then write a curation style blog post like this entry by @viking-ventures from week 16 which won a Judges Choice Award. The idea is to highlight both posts and why you thought they were high quality.

To be clear the Level 55 max is only for the bloggers who are featured, anyone may submit a curation entry.


  • Curation Style Post that highlights your 2 featured blog posts.
  • Link to the high quality blog posts in your curation post. Keep in mind that many will follow this link and upvote so pick a post that isn't close to payout!
  • Include a link to this contest in your entry post
  • The 2 bloggers you curate need to be rank 55 or below
  • You need to comment on this post with a link to your post, this is how we track everything!

👉👉Clarification for Quality Required for valid Entry👈👈
We are looking for Quality Original Content and that post spells out what that means. If you are new please read it.

No less then 200 words of original written content. So a single photo is fine as long as there is 200 words with it. 200 words is about 12 lines of content.

Really starting to find my feet and enjoying this contest, here's my entry for the week :)

Entry #3

upvoted and commented dear @chekohler

Entry #1

upvoted both and commented @aggamun

Thz a lot! Have a nice day @brittandjosie

Posted using Partiko Android

Excellent choices, @aggamun!

However, I skipped your second featured post and voted for @nicoleli's new post instead, which had $0.00 of rewards...

Here is My entry for week 33 GOOD LUCK EVERYONE participating and visiting blogs

Oh, well, my 5% is worth 0 again. Long time this didn't happen. :-P
Nice choices, @brittandjosie!

Thats ok , a comment is ok too

I'm having to do 85% to get 0.02 still... Frustrating.

It's getting very low indeed. At the moment, 700 SP are needed to upvote a comment above the dust threshold! :-O

I have use of 708 SP and 0.02 SBD max vote right now. I don't think that gets above dust right now. So, I don't know what the number is to hit 0.03 anymore, but it's much higher than me.

Entry #5

Sigh... I get screwing up the week 32/33 thing in all my comments and titles and everywhere... So, here is my WEEK 33 entry... in the Week 33 post...

upvoted and commented both dear john


lol...Entry #4

Entry #6

Gave an exception due to missing the rule on reputation level and being the first attempt. Please everyone still support this entry.

Entry #2

ayuda me robaron la cuenta

dos contestants upvoted and commented

This week I haven't been able to visit many entries... and I imagine I ain't the one having trouble. After all, a lousy $0.02 vote is worth 700 SP today. It's getting ridiculous.

Anyway, here is my entry for this week: My entry to the "Pay It Forward Curation Contest - Week 33"


I'll try to return later tonight or over the weekend to upvote a few more entries.

Entry #16

The goal is to cover the 2c dust level with @pifc on the comments and then all featured posts. If needed we will be leasing some SP if the value keep going down. Hopefully it won't come to that, but if needed we will.

In the mean time know that even smaller votes are good enough as the dust threshold won't be an issue. Know you understand this, but want to make sure everyone else does.

My Entry for this week.. my last entry by myself, thanks for al the support all this time Entry for the PIFC week 33
