CLOSED: Week 47 - Pay It Forward Curation Contest

in #payitforward2 years ago (edited)


Before we get into the rules and increased prize pool I need to ask everyone for some help this week. We are now only 5 weeks until our 1 year anniversary. It would be great to build up our number of entries each week going into week 52 and we need everyone's help.

To help please resteem this post, state that you have in a comment below, and in that comment please tag at least 2 people you would like to see join in the contest. This comment should be separate then your entry comment and will earn part of the bounty. The bounty is being increased to 4 steem this week to offset the added payouts for these resteem and tag comments.

This week we will have 5 Random Winners who each get an SBI share instead of the normal 2. This means at least 9 entries will win a prize this week plus another 8 shares for featured bloggers. That is a total of 17 total SBI Shares this week!

The Pay It Forward Curation Contest is all about increasing exposure for undervalued 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.

Make sure to check back to this post often and scroll to the end to see a list of this week's curation entries! This list is updated on a regular basis to help make it easy for you to visit the entries and help support the great content that has been curated.

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.
** Art posts that show at least 3 steps of progression will not need to have 200 words of content, but still attempt to explain their art. Please use some common sense here.

Posts from Parley and dmania are not acceptable.

Votes on Entry Comments will be given in the later part of the week. We tend to run low on VP during the first few days of the Curation Contest as each entry means 4 total upvotes, 2 for the featured bloggers, 1 for the entry, and 1 for the entry comment. Then we tend to have excess VP later in the week so this will help us manage our VP and give you larger votes.

Hey @dandays and @jlsplatts 😊 Pressure's off!!! This is a weekly contest so jump onboard when it works for you!😊

Thanks for showing me this, Lynn. I’m following pifc now, not sure what took me so long to find’em.

Entry #10

This is my lucky week number 10 in the EL and PIFC this is gooooddd

Entry #9

This is my entry for this week!

Now to try and figure out how to reverse something stupid that I did earlier in the day....

Entry #2 and have to know, what stupid thing did you do? lol

Ha ha, nothing too serious... Just sent some Erc20 tokens to a phone ether wallet instead of a holding one. Just need to extract the private keys (the wallet is built for ease of use and so all of that is hidden from the user..). It seems to be possible, so it goes on the list of things to do on the weekend...

@pifc has set 4.000 STEEM bounty on this post!

I'll give it a look. I'd have to do some searching, most of the people I follow would be over the reputation limit. Thank you for thinking of me though :)

@nathanmars is venturing on Twitter hustling. I see you and @viking-ventures followed me on Twitter. Maybe the #pifc folks can also join the Twitter hustle. 😊

I see @nathanmars on Twitter all the time - good to see it happening.
It's great to see more and more Steem folks on Twitter - maybe we can make the reverse trend happen too.
