The Community Engagement Challenge - Day 3 Diary

5Y Ago
It’s the end of Day 3 and we’re still going strong in the Community Engagement Challenge! In fact, we've grown a little more with new people joining! What's the total count so far?

At the time of this post we have 40 Steemians (+3) who have signed up for the challenge; 6 donors (+1) and 73 qualifying posts! (+33)

image source A BIG SHOUT-OUT TO OUR DONORS Each have donated 10 SBD or more to be used toward the prize pot!Our total SBD for distribution is currently 230 SBD and growing y muchas gracias, mi amigo! @jlufer donated 30 SBD The Challenge ends on Tuesday, July 18, 2017 The deadline for new participants to enter is July 11, at midnight EST That means there is still time to join! just not a lot of time

I've got a color coded spreadsheet to keep track of who's ahead of the game and who needs some extra encouragement and reminders. If anyone enters a post that doesn't meet the minimum requirements, they are coached on how to get it up to par. It's up to them to fix their post in order to be included in the Daily Diary. Participants are given every opportunity to succeed!

PRIZES NOW 230 SBD is up for grabs!

This will be equally distributed among all participants who successfully finish the challenge. If only one person meets all the requirements, they will be awarded the entire thing! If no one finishes this challenge I keep the awards, return the donations, and will try again at a future date.

I will continue to accept donations to sweeten the prize pot. image source GRAND PRIZE

The names of all successful participants will be put into the randomizer. The first name on the list will be delegated 5,000 STEEM POWER for the week that I'm attending my son's bootcamp graduation (July 23-30). This is roughly half of my account strength!

So let's get Community Strong! image source

Seven Compelling Reasons to Enable "Perpetual EDIT" for Content Creators

Let Me Help You Get a Good Night's Sleep.

Daily Diary links to some amazing posts, written by awesome Steemians. If you like their content, consider following them. Also remember that part of their challenge is to have a minimum of 500 posts/comments by the challenge deadline of July 18th. Consider engaging them on their post. Clarification for one of the rules

There is a minimum of 7 posts required as one of the tasks for this challenge. In the genesis post it clearly states that you can only post one link a day to use in the challenge. It also recommends that during the challenge period not to exceed 2 posts per day. This is for quality purposes but also because another part includes 500 well-thought comments, which takes a significant amount of time!

Here's where we need a little clarification: If you post twice a day, you can only share one post per day for the challenge. This does not exclude you from sharing a day-old post the next day as long as it was written within the time period that you began the challenge.

Here's the catch: Part of the exercise is consistency. Posting all 7 links on the last day of the challenge will not be accepted! I am currently accepting latecomers who are sharing 2 links in one shot because they're still getting used to the rules. The leniency ends July 11 at midnight EST where the challenge holds the participants accountable. Do the work and you're in. Don't do the work and you're out.

If you are community oriented and wish to use this challenge for your non-English speaking communities, you have my blessing and full authority to do so. I encourage translators to take this and run with it. Beware! It's a lot of unexpected work.
