1000 DAYS OF STEEM : Day 19 - The Diary Game Season 2 - FINAL RULES

in #the1000daysofsteem2 years ago


Season 2 of The Diary Game begins on Saturday, August 1st.

We see from the number of teams being formed, and the general interest, that this second season is going to big!

The draft Rules and Guidelines for Season 2 were posted a few days ago. No changes were suggested so those draft rules will now become the final rules.

We hope everyone will take the time, using a translator if needed, to read the rules carefully and follow them!

It will be especially important for teams to make sure all members follow the rules in their posts else the team will be losing valuable points.

The FINAL Rules for Season 2 of The Diary Game

Season 2 of The Diary Game is going to be large.

We expect there will many hundreds of players, producing many thousands of posts over the 50 days.

Managing an operation of this scale will be challenging.

It will be even more difficult if people do not take the time to read the rules and follow them.

We are finding more than a third of the entries to The Shopping Game are not following the rules in one way or another. We really hope we don't see that repeated in The Diary Game.

Over the 50 days of Season 2 the @steemcurator accounts will be giving out approaching $50,000 of upvotes.

To optimize our curation time and the votes we give out we are introducing a new rule for Season 2...

If your posts do not meet the Rules we reserve the right not to give any vote or any comment.

We simply will not have enough time to write comments explaining why your posts are not following the rules.

The Rules are quite straightforward - READ THEM and FOLLOW THEM !

Please also note that if a post does not follow the rules it will not be eligible for earning Recruitment points nor Team points.

If you recruit people to the game to compete for the 1000 STEEM Recruitment prize pot it is your responsibility, and in your interest, to guide them to ensure they are following the rules.

Likewise for teams - check your team members are following the rules to earn points for your team.

Here then are the FINAL RULES for Season 2 of The Diary Game starting on Saturday, August 1st...

The First Rule of The Diary Game is READ THE RULES OF THE DIARY GAME!


  • Diary Game posts must be about your daily life activities. They should not just be your favorite recipes, stories of your vacation last year, film reviews, retelling of your dreams, political rants...

  • The title of Diary Game posts must be in the format - THE DIARY GAME : DATE (including day, month & year) : ANY OTHER WORDS YOU WANT TO INCLUDE

  • Diary Game posts must include #thediarygame tag as one of the first five tags - ideally the first one.

  • Diary Game posts must also include a # tag to identify your country.

  • Diary Game posts can be written in any language. We use Google Translate and DeepL Translator to translate so if you include important information in graphics you should include a transcription in text.

  • Diary Game posts must be a minimum of 300 words - excluding any introduction or conclusion (for example thanks to Steemit etc) that is not directly part of the diary post.

  • Diary Game posts should not include referral links especially to any crypto or financial sites or products.

  • Diary Game posts should include no more than 8 photographs. Photographs should be presented individually not as compilation photos as they are too small to be useful. Screencaptures of games or films count as part of the 8 photos.

  • You can only make one Diary Game post for each day of your life. If you are not able to post on one day, you can put two posts up on the next day as long as they cover the events of different days, and are dated to show that.

  • Any images used in a Diary Game post must be your own or from a stated copyright free source.

These Rules above are obligatory. If you fail to follow these rules you risk missing out on votes and points for your post.

We reserve the right to add to or amend the rules as the game progresses. Please follow @steemitblog for news of any updates.

In addition to these Rules we published some Guidelines to improve your posts...

We also hope to publish a 'Diary Game Masterclass' post with more tips very soon.

This Day 14 post also contains more information about the points scoring system. Please take note of that.

Particularly take notice of this...

As a new feature for Season 2 we are going to be awarding extra points for posts that are set to 100% SP Power Up rather than the default 50% SBD / 50% SP.

Posting as 100% Power Up is not obligatory and can be done on as many or as few posts as you want.

These additional points will not be awarded if you are powering down at the time of curation.

Individuals and Teams

To confirm and to clarify, people are free to enter The Diary Game as individuals exactly as in Season 1.

The main prize pot of 5000 STEEM is for individual entries.

Additionally people may also chose to join teams.

Teams will be competing for an additional 2000 STEEM prize pot.

There are no additional posts required nor points available for Teams.

The scores for the Teams are purely the sum of the points earned by the team members on their individual diary posts.

Teams Update

We are very excited by how many teams are being formed.

Tomorrow we will post a list of all the Teams we have found so far.

Please check that post and let us know if your team is missing from our list.

There is more guidance for Teams in this post...

Remember Teams can only have up to 5 members - and they must all currently live in the same country.

Please also check the guidance about the naming of teams - they cannot just be the name of the country as there will likely be more than one team from each country.

PLEASE NOTE - The deadline for announcing teams is now midnight UTC on Friday, July 31st.

No new teams will be accepted after that.

That will also be the last chance to change the members of a team.

After that, the only change allowed will be the addition of new members if your team starts with less than five members.

You will only be able to add new members until Day 10 of Season 2, and you will only be able to add people who have not already started posting diary entries.

Recruitment Points

Alongside the main Diary Game there is the additional prize pot of 1000 STEEM for the people who recruit the most players to the game and to Steem.

Recruiters earn one point for every valid diary post made by each person they recruit.

This only applies if you recruit people totally new to Steem or who have been dormant on Steem for at least 12 months.

More details are available in this post...

If you have recruited new people between the end of Season 1 (July 11th) and the start of Season 2 (August 1st) they will be eligible to earn Recruitment Points for you if they make valid diary posts.

More details are available in this post...

This is a big post.

But we have a big game coming.

We hope all the rules are clear, and we hope everyone will follow them.

There are just two days to go until the start of what we believe will be the biggest event ever on Steem!

Hope you will be joining in.

Thank you,

The Steemit Team

Our Team Announcement update. 👏https://steemit.com/hive-141731/@bd-steemian/announcement-for-launching-new-team-for-the-diary-game-season-2-from-bangladesh

Greetings @steemitblog.

I would like to be clear on how the points should be counted:

Points = 1 Diary Game Post


Points = percentage of the vote

My perception changed when i joined steemit about the internet, it has been a great platform, and i know it to grow to the world!!

Amigo puedo psrticipar solo igual que la primera temporada,? No pude unirme a ningun equipo por lo tanto lo hare solo.. de igualmanera debo hacer una publicación anunciando mi participación???

Thank you very much! @steemitblog , украинский аккаунт готов участвовать в конкурсе. Команда из пяти человек "Украинский стиль" https://steemit.com/@ukrainianstyle

Una gusto en saludar, quisiera saber si obligatoriamente las fotos publicadas en el diario deben ser del mismo día, de no ser asi cuantos días de antigüedad puede tener una fotos usada en el diario...

Hola saludos lo que tengo entendido según las reglas , es tomar fotos de tu día ya que el juego consiste en redactar tu día entero y adjuntar fotos alucivas a lo que hiciste en tu cotidianidad .

Espero que te sirva mi respuesta saludos

Entiendo muchas gracias por tu aclaratoria @biancaskarlet

Together, we run the season 2. @vidder is onboard. :))

Thanks so much, steemit team for these final rules. They are straightforward, I will follow them carefully and also help my new recruits to do the same.

Team passion is ready for the diary game season 2. Just updated the team name from a general one "Uganda steemit team," so that it does not limit other teams formation in my country.

Well noted and will share to the team. Thanks again for this event, not to mention with 50 days long, wowa

Please check the post announcement from our team so that we are sure that you did not miss us

Team Аnnouncement from Russia - ARTRUSTEEM


Greetings @steemitblog and @steemcurator01.

Today we present the policies and our control system, we are already confirmed all the members.

I wish this second season to be fun and successful for everyone.


@steemcurator01 , Tell me please. If I am from Belarus, which tag should I use to designate the country? #Belarus ? or #BEL ?

Может, в тиму ещё успеешь? @ekatirina собирала людей, но нас слишком мало.

Я уже общался с @ekatirina . Команды не будет. Подробности можете узнать у @ekatirina .

Возможно @steemcurator01 нам ответит как лучше поступить в этой ситуации!

Нас осталось 3 человека, а команда должна состоять из 5. У нас страна маленькая и люди привыкли к земной работе, поэтому как-то трудно кого-то завлечь на steemit.

@eketirina, я нашла вам ещё одного человека. Не торопитесь объявлять, что вы без команды.

And is there any rules regarding teamleader like reports of their team members etc??

We remain attentive to the rules and guidelines to follow @steemitblog. @lucerovenezuela Present.

Dear @steemitblog @steemcurator01
Muy bueno tener las reglas claras para comenzar la IITemporada. Son bastante simples.
