🏆 The Villan's Comps - Adopt a Minnow for a Month - V3

in steemit •  5 months ago

☠️ What the Heck are You on About? ☠️

Each month I will run this competition, and one lucky person will be adopted for one month.
Upon adoption, I will support you for the month by up voting your posts. I will also be here to answer any questions you may have about Steemit.

I will also continue to support my minnows beyond this one month period, and up vote any posts which I find in my feed that I enjoyed.

  • Note: The adoption period may span longer that one month depending on how many posts per week my current minnow is posting. The next comp will not be released until I have finished up voting my adopted minnow.

You Trippn Balls, Why do This?

Well I remember when I was first starting out on Steemit. It can be difficult to find support.
I was very lucky to receive a delegation of 500 steem power from @mattclarke and really appreciate how much it has helped me. When I got the 500 steem power delegation it was like he said here invest 3 grand for a year.
I really appreciated this(thanks bud) and this is what motivates me to help others. Plus it's in my nature ;)

This competition is for the greater good of our community. I would like to do my bit to help steemit grow as I do see some problems with steemit and user retention is one of them. So if I can help motivate a minnow I'll do it :)

☠️ So What's in it For Me? ☠️

Well to start of I will follow everyone who is eligible to enter. So you have a change for me to up vote your posts in my feed :)

First Prize

☣️ My minnow for the month will initially receive 50% of this posts SBD payout, to mark the opening ceremony.
☣️ Regular up votes throughout the month to the value of 28 x 100%.
☣️ Ongoing future support once my minnow is set free = $$$ the sky is the limit as time goes on this is sure to be huge :)
☣️ For the closing ceremony, I will write a post about my minnow and what I have learned about them. 50% of the SBD generated from that post will go to my minnow as a departure gift.

Runner up 2nd and 3rd

☣️ Runner up 2nd and 3rd place will receive up votes at 50% for 1 week or equivalent. 7 x 50% up votes.
☣️ I will also transfer 0.100 SBD as constellation prize.

All other entrants

☣️ I will send the first 17 entrants after 3 place 0.100 SBD as a constellation prize. I will take note of order of entries and will limit this to 17 as well because if 100 people enter i'll be broke lol. I feel it is good to reward people for taking the time to support this initiative.

☠️ Fo Sho, I'm Down - How Do I Enter? ☠️

☣️ Entry is really simple.
☣️ You must be level 45 or below reputation score
☣️ Upvote and re-steem this post
☣️ Follow Me
☣️ Add a comment with why you should be chosen

How the Heck do you Pick You Minnows?

On the day of post payout, I will pick a couple of entries for people I really like. Then I will write those names down on some pieces of paper and draw them from my hat(recorded with gopro).

Going from my previous comps, it is really difficult to pick a winner as there are some great entries. So the hat works well.

☠️ Where Dat Fine Print At? ☠️

☣️ So each day I will up vote 2 posts at 50% up vote, which is about $0.10 or 1 vote at 100% if only one post.

☣️ If you don't post for a few days, I take note of that and will continue to up vote past the month until the missed days are made up for. (Straight up)

☣️ These posts are guaranteed to be up voted, as I will visit your blog each day.

☣️ Any additional posts I see in my feed will be up voted, with a decreasing up vote % per post as I also need to spare up votes for other people on here I support.

☣️ If your posting something every 5 mins, trying to get rewards I most likely won't up vote them and may even cancel the adoption due to spamming my feed.

☣️ Your posts must fall within Steemit user guidelines, and be good content. Photos with a description, credit others when their stuff is used and so fourth.

☣️ If your posting bad content, spamming, abusing people or doing anything frowned upon by the community I reserve the right to un-follow you and stop supporting you. In which case a new competition will be run to find a new minnow.

☣️ I may change the rules as the competition evolves, but what's written in this post is set in stone.

Sounds rad! A very generous and worthwhile initiative! Pity I’m over 45 now (but also pretty stoked I’m over 45 now🤔).

·

Thanks. haha bitter sweet :)

A big thank you

I was the last adoptive from this competition and it is truly worth entering
his support is second to none
check out my farewell post here

·

Thanks for the support bud, this is really good of you to do. Already giving back to the community what a great bloke :)
Thanks for the great write up, pity my slider only goes to 100% lol

·
·

It’s the least I can do my friend. You have inspired me.

Keep up the good work m8. Helping others always is a blessing for them and it will always return back to you. Yes, even tho you are not looking for a return, it still will happen. Good karma.

I've been travelling but will be back soo and then be able to post some more on Steemit. Cheers.

·

Thanks m8 :)
The real benefit is knowing I will help grow steemit. I'm happy with that.

Will be nice to see a few posts from you again so I can chuck you a few up votes for a change lol

hey man! You have had a great initiative is more or less what I do with my art students ... without Steem lol! But can I participate as minnow? Meanwhile, I upvote and resteem for my little little minnow ty!

·

Hey m8, thanks. Sounds like you would be a great art teacher. You sure can participate :)

Congratulations this entry is valid, good luck.
You already had me as a follower and I just upvoted your last 3 posts at 20% :)

Thanks for offering this opportunity, @thevillan


Congratulations you have been upvoted and resteemed as one of the @newbiegames top contests for minnows of the day

To reach more people, try out the Newbiegames and Contest rooms in the #newbieresteemday Discord Chat channel.

Sounds good, thanks for doing this. I would like to enter, but I'm a plankton with a 51 rep. I guess I'm just an oddball. :-) I am sure you will make someone really happy.

Engagement and retention...Uhmm...AWESOME!

This is exactly what Steemit and Steem in general needs. People looking out for those just swimming through the brand new blockchain estuary all cute, wide-eyed and perfect candidates to be sharkbait...

Thanks for the contest, never before have I been so envious of being in another mans hat...I trust that sounded exactly as weird as I imagined as I read it back, right?

Given the opportunity to succeed, to thrive I believe most of us would or indeed will. This is more of an invaluable initiative than even you yourself, probably believe. How could you possibly see the new-found confidence in the mind and spirit of another? How could you understand just how much more accomplished they feel by being taken under the tutelage of another?

Ah! But now I think about it, you just might get it...You are the embodiment of @mattclarke and his generosity of spirit, paying it forward as they say, this spirit is responsible also for @father2b giving the winner of this contest 2 SBI shares from himself.

I can imagine it now...A genealogy of responsible, encouraging, nurturing Steemians. Each in turn doing his part for the encouragement, the absolute betterment of another. The ever expanding ripples of awesomeness impacting a previously incomprehensible number. (Tell me when I start to ramble, right?) :D

Quite something to behold, right there!

You sir...Quite categorically ROCK!

A message to any new folks reading this and maybe thinking of entering the contest...Do it! Don't over-think it...Just bloody do it...
·

Hey Thanks, yep you get it alright.
I did not expect this from @father2b but I guess this is another benefit of generosity. It rubs off on people and helps to create a better community.

The time, effort and support has been well worth it :)

Awesome initiative, @thevillan.
There can never be enough people who are wiling to help out the little guys.

Thanks @bashadow for the shoutout. @newbiegames is on it! :0)

·

Thanks @simplymike I completely agree :)

I hope you do not mind @thevillan, but I just had to call in the newbieresteemday games promoter. They are a group that like you, tries to give new users a leg up on steemit.

@newbiegames here is one that needs to be resteemed.

·

Thanks for the support I really appreciate it :)

Nice boss,,, keep doing good work ... I hope you choose the best

Thank you! I'm really appreciated @thevillan

I'd love to participate as a minnow.

It seems to me there's a lot of posts around steem itself, photography (me included) and cryptocurrency.

I'd like to branch it out a bit more and bring write more about cloud computing - in particular Azure (with full disclosure, I do work for Microsoft, but that doesn't make the posts any less valid)

Kudos for running this.

I almost want to give up on Steemit. Everything I do and learn is through my own research but most of the time I learn the hard way because I couldn't find the right Steemians or mentors. The post I spent my time composing didn't reach the right audience and no one read it, maybe with this initiative I may be able to find the right community. Thank you @thevillan for your concern to us minnows.

·

Yeah I know it's tough, that's why I offer my comp.
I recommend checking out the 2 posts I did, which you should find handy. Especially the part about joining minnow support group ;)

Starting out here on my own is really a big struggle. I got no one to guide me I learn as I go along. I need someone reliable who can help me with my journey. Thank you very much for coming up with this idea.

I want to join this contest because if I get adopted I will certainly have visibility in the Steemit world. As a minnow our posts do not get notice and no one reads them which is a bit disheartening and we may lose interest to proceed. I had been looking for ways to augment my voting power to so maybe this could help me do that. Thank you

·

Hi, yeah I feel ya that's why I offer this contest. I remember when I first started it was hard.
I would recommend you check out my 2 posts which I linked to at the bottom of this competition post, has some handy advice for minnows :)

I would like to participate in this contest and hoping I get lucky to be pick as one of the winners. It will mean a lot to me receiving upvotes or exposure on the posts I make. Reaching a greater audience is helpful for any Steemian working hard on their posts. Thank you @thevillan for this kind of activity.

·

Hi, yep I believe that by giving that little boost each day after a month my minnows will have momentum moving forward and will want to stick around on steemit :)

Your art looks really cool :)

Hi @thevillan I saw your post being resteemed by friends and I am glad I click on it. It's not everyday that we see people paying it forward like you do. I want to join your adopt a minnow this is what I need as a newbie. I registered last January 2018 but it is only this month that I became active because I do not know how or where to begin. No one is telling me if what I am doing is right or wrong until someone flags or comments. More power to you.

·

Hi, yeah it's a learning experience old steemit.

Great job with the minnow support. I've upvoted and re-esteemed to support you with this.

Keep up the good work

·

Hey bud thanks for the support :)

This is a fantastic opportunity to provide the much needed exposure to steemians under the radar. I think there is fantastic content being generated especially by new steemians but the system is sort of skewed against those that have decided to give this a try. Wonderful initiative - keep it up.

Wow, this is great. I am putting myself up for adoption! Why should you pick me? I don't know to be honest. I'm here since about a month and i'm pretty excited about Steemit as a platform and I'm even more excited about creating good content. I have the feeling that my posts get better but there is still a lot to learn. Anyway, thank you for helping the noobs around here!

·

Hey thanks for the entry. Yeah I think it's a journey becoming a good content creator. I have to admit at the start my content wasn't the greatest, but I have come a long way since then :)

Thank you for the upvotes and follow! I enjoyed your blog, and will pay attention to your future posts. Have a nice day!

This is great thing you are doing here. I am a proud beneficiary of a similar program which I received 600sp about a month ago. I would love to know how to make better use of it to be able to grow so that I can also help the people I bring onboard grow in order to sustain the blockchain

·

There are many things you could do, but rewarding new members is a great way to help build the platform :)

·
·

Yes I have been doing that. I curate a lot

i am new here!
will anyone do welcome me here ?sample.gif

If you meet the entry requirements I can mark your entry as valid :)

wao, there are still good-hearted people, I congratulate you on this project, it's really very noble, I usually see that the big ones are a little selfish (Not all
) but if the majority. I support you, and I would like to participate in your minnow selection but I have 47 of reputation ... if you could make an exception I would be very grateful. My reason ... well lately I have been a bit disappointed because one makes efforts and it is difficult to grow in steemit, unless you look for other alternatives. I wanted to do it for my publications or for my content, but then I thought that you have to use other additional supports if you want to grow while you're minnow and have so little voting power. I would like to increase my voting power but well I go little by little .... Once again congratulations for your nobility.

·

I had forgotten to reestem ... since I did it

·

Hi, thanks for the support :)
Unfortunately I can't make special allowances, and rules are rules.
I consider level 46 and up to be getting to the point when you should be earning a bit from your posts.

It looks like your doing ok looking at your last few posts :)

ohh... I'm homeless, too and need adoption...
Hehehehe, joking...
Great initiative @thevillan...
Soon I get my other account and in my thoughts there is something similar to start.
The account name will be @wonderlamp (not forget, coming soon) for to give the minnows some light in the Steemit universe.
Best regards and a wonderful day

Greetings friend, what a great project.
