The Meet the Steemians Contest is over - Results are coming soon ...

in steemfest •  3 months ago

SteemFest³ is over and has been an awesome event. Most of us are back home from Kraków. The Meet the Steemians Contest is also over!

Thank you and congratulations to all participants

The contest caught everyone’s attention and we received a lot of positive feedback.

We saw all SteemFest’s attendees walking around with their phone in the hand, going to find someone to meet and scan, having talk (yes, the infamous 2 minutes rule) then scanning again.

This was a success, and the main objective, to encourage participants to meet each other, has been achieved!

The results are coming, please be patient

As this was our first experience of organizing such a massive contest, which involved both the SteemFest application (thank you @roelandp for integrating our requirements in the app) and the SteemitBoard infrastructure, both parts met a few small hiccups as it unfolded.

In order to be as fair as possible, we will reprocess all registered operations (we kept track of every interactions between participants). This will take a some time because there were 9912 scans within the 4 days during which the contest lasted.

Therefore, please keep in mind that the results displayed on the ranking page are temporary and may be subject to change (negative or positive)

We will do our best to do it as fast as possible. Thank you for your patience.

Meantime, feel free to comment and give us additional feedback.

Some additional thanks

Thank you again to our awesome sponsors.

This contest could not have been possible without your unconditional support. Thank you guys, you rock!

We would also like to thank Steemit Inc. for providing a significant delegation to @steemitboard, allowing it to survive HF20 and execute the planned SteemFest contest smoothly. This is a great encouragement and a sign of your trust in this project and the usefulness it can have for the community.

We hope you hope enjoyed SteemFest³. Stay tuned for the coming results!

This was definitely a great idea. Of course lots of us would have loved to know the rules initially lol.

I met approximately 40-50 ppl on opening day, 30 of which were new steemians i had never met prior & so i wasn’t willing to reset my collection for the sake of the contest prize....then unfortunately in the end, i lost all of my contacts after a couple of days anyway lol... that part was disappointing.

Is there a way to get access to a back up from day 2ish? There were many ppl that i really wanted to follow up with!

All in all, a really good idea with a lot of value imo.


Thanks @jaybird. I will try to provide you with a list of all your scans.


Most excellent & appreciated if that’s possible :)

This has been such a nice challenge!! I think it changed the whole dinamic at steemfest. People got mixed a lot and got to know each other much more!! Thanks for that initiative! It has been a lot of fun. Hopefully I stay in the top 10 ;)


Smooth move scanning me at the

I should have paid closer attention and tried but I was dumb and forgot to scan most of the time.


Hahaha @roxanne challenged me personally so the game was on! :D


Well I’m interested to see how it ends. Those of you at the top...could be switched depending if you guys scanned or didn’t scan the chosen ones. Lol. Good luck my dear!!!


Who are the chosen ones? Lol I dont have to win but I still would like to be in the top 10 ;)


Lol. I wish I knew!!! I’m sure you’ll medal...or wil you?!?!?


Thank you Liz! I was so happy seeing people having fun, including you.
The special attendees might shake the ranking ... a little extra fun... good luck!


Who were the special attendees? O.o

I loved that scanning game :)


Yep ... I saw that :)
Thank you for participating @mammasitta. I can't wait to meet scan you again at the next edition.


On c’est voit at the moon the next time 🙈👻😁🙏

I had so much fun with this, although I didn't really do it. I mean I did the scanning thing just for the talks (which of course was the point) and it really helped me get to know other Steemians! :D Great initiative, @arcange <3


Yes, most people did it the fun way and not for the prize. I have been happy to see such a cool atmosphere around the contest.

I have been really happy to meet you and expect to see you at SF4!


It was!! I mean, I have no idea what the previous Steemfests were like, but this year there was a very warm, friendly atmosphere and people had a great ice-breaker in the scanning thing.

I loved meeting you, man! And I really hope to see you next year :D

I wanted to scan(more like 'Listen') people's Mind..
Not just a QR code for scores. :)

But it was a really cool idea & nice concept of friendly-competition!

Steemitboard always bring some cool awards,
and I'm a big fan of it!

Thank you for your great work!

P.S - Maybe I have to utilize stop watch in next SF as well.. haha :D


Thank you for your feedback @y-o-u-t-h-m-e and glad to have been able to meet you.

Maybe I have to utilize stop watch in next SF

I mainly used stopwatch to educate people about the 2 minutes rule. I often found myself talking longer than that.

Fantastic idea for the contest @arcange. I'll definitely hussle a bit more with it next year. Sometimes I mostly forgot as we all were having such interesting conversations that I wasn't thinking of it. I'll make a better go at it next year!!!


Thank you for your feedback @blewitt.

I'm so glad to read it. It was indeed my main goal.




One of the best parts of Steemfest³ for sure was meeting people and while the scanning was not a priority, it surely was a great icebreaker. Awesome idea @arcange.

It was also great to meet and "scan you".

Thank you @greencross. I really enjoyed meeting you too.
See Scan you at SF4!

It was a cool way to get people to talk to each other. I'd have done that anyway, but adding some competition made it more fun. I need to go through my list to learn more about some of the people I met. Thanks

@arcange thanks for creating this wonderful contest, what was actually not a contest but a way to get in touch with your fellow Steemians without feeling awkward that you didn't know them all.


Thank you for your feedbadk @guchtere.

Your contest was a really great idea and very funny, thanks for this creative work @arcange!


Thank you @future24.
It was a first experience and I learned a lot. I will even try to raise the bar for the next SF ;)

Wow ...... 10k scans. That's amazing.

Feels good to know that I probably contributed about one percent of that 😉

I wish I could partake in the competition
