What’s up everyone!
Welcome back to another month of our exciting contest, where we ask you, the Steem Community, “What’s Your Top 3?”
May the Fork be with you! Phew! We made it past another one (or actually two) hard forks, so why not celebrate the welcoming in of #newsteem with another exhilarating round of our monthly contest? The entries each month have been out of this world, and so is this round’s theme...
The Topic For This Round Is…Extraterrestrial Movies
It's a bird! It's a plane! No! It's a UFO!!!! Brace yourselves, they have probes! Run and send them cows by the herd. This month we would like you to gaze at the eerie lights through the clouds, be dazzled by the strong beams and tell us what your top 3 extraterrestrial movies are. From the shadows to plain sight, we are not alone. Believe!
The movie does not have to be completely alien-themed, but must feature at least one extra terrestrial character or being from outer-space.
So feel free to get creative as usual in your interpretations! Boop Boop Beep Boop. It's time to write your reports, you have 9 days to hand it in to Area 51. Don't delay!
How To Enter This Spectacular Contest
1 - Create a blog post with your top 3 nominations along with your reasoning behind them. You must use the #phctop3 tag
2 - Put a link to your blog in the comments section of this blog.
3 - Set your post payout to 50/50. You keep the SP and then transfer the STEEM and/or SBD (whichever is paid out at the time) to @phctop3 with a link to your blog post entry in the transfer memo. This is the minimum entry fee, but you can add as much as you like to it! The more you add, the more you can win.There is no maximum entry fee.
Not sure how to find your post payout? Look in your Steem Wallet under Author Rewards to find the exact payout for your post. In the example below you would send the 0.014 SBD and 6.587 STEEM over to the @phctop3 account as your entry fee. We’ll take it from there and convert all of the prize pool to SBD for easy prize distribution at the end of the month!
The deadline for submitting is the 9th
There’s an extra 5 SBI up for grabs
This is the fourth month of our contest and although things have been going really well, we have been thinking of some ideas to make things even more exciting. We are launching the referral bonus scheme where we will reward existing (joined in at least one previous round) phctop3 contestants for introducing a brand new contestant.
If you have a friend that has never entered and you think that this contest would be ‘right up their alley,’ then bring them along! Get them to join in on our current topic and then mention you as their referrer in their entry post. Once the fees are in and their entry is confirmed, you will receive an SBI share at the end of the month. Easy peasy!
Rules for the referral:
As always, the main rule is one human, one entry. No alt accounts please.
The referred contestant needs to be entering the phctop3 for the very first time.
The referral only becomes completed once the entry has been confirmed and the entry fee received.
Make sure to get your entries in fast, only the first five new entrants to get their posts in will earn SBI shares for their referring member each month.
Maximum 1 referral per person, per month.
#Creating Your Post
You are welcome to create your own post but for ease of use and your convenience we have created two different templates. The first one; a more complex version, contains some coding creating a nice table for you to edit. The second template; for those of you not familiar with coding,is a simpler version without the code
How detailed you want to go is up to you but we know you can do better than “because I like it” 😉
Our Panel members may create their own post with their own top 3 but these will NOT be entered in to the contest. Instead they will be used to add to the prize pool for bigger prize payouts.
What Happens Next?
The Panel will first review all submissions for eligibility.
Then all submissions will be put into a public dpoll with a recording of our chat to let the people of Steem vote on their favourite submissions.
Once the dpoll is complete, we’ll review the results and combine them with our scoring system before dishing out the prizes to the top 3!
The prizes get divided up by a combination of the final position (1st, 2nd and 3rd) and by the amount of entry fee given. 75% of the prize pool will be distributed to the top 3 places and the remaining 25% of the prize pool goes back to the Panel with the aim of growing the account.
Got a few questions, like why the entry fee or how to score points in the dpoll? Check out the FAQ link we have made for you.FAQ Link
Alright! Let’s get this ocean in motion and get your ideas flowing as we excitedly wait for your entries!
Wishing you all the best of luck from all of us in the PHC Top 3 Panel
Why delegate to the PHC Top 3?
The more delegations we receive the better our upvote will be. The more support we can give our contestants the bigger the prize pool. Also, all those that delegate to the PHC Top 3 account will receive Delegator Support.
@phctop3 will upvote your posts up to 2 times a day, every day. This will happen between the 9th of each month and the end of each month. This is in order to reward our delegators and to show our gratitude. Delegators will also get a mention on our official posts.
