We are finally reaching the time to award the prizes for Season 2 of the Diary Game.
It has been a long and arduous path.
First up will be the prizes for the individual contest, then the team and recruitment prizes will follow.
We hope the winners will be happy.
The Diary Game Season 2 Prizes
We will be awarding 25 prizes in total...
- 3 prizes of 500 STEEM [or 100% vote from @steemcurator01 & 100% vote from @steemcurator02]
- 3 prizes of 400 STEEM [or 100% vote from @steemcurator01 & 30% vote from @steemcurator02]
- 3 prizes of 300 STEEM [or 74% vote from @steemcurator01 & 25% vote from @steemcurator02]
- 3 prizes of 200 STEEM [or 50% vote from @steemcurator01 & 15% vote from @steemcurator02]
- 3 prizes of 100 STEEM [or 70% vote from @steemcurator02]
- 10 prizes of 50 STEEM [or 35% vote from @steemcurator02]
In Season 1, most of the prizes given were cashed out of the platform.
As an encouragement to Season 2 winners to retain their winnings on the platform we are offering alternative upvote prizes on 100% Power Up posts. These give an enhancement of approximately one third on the liquid STEEM prizes.
These alternative upvote prizes are totally optional.
We will be announcing the winners in the next day or two once all the team have checked and verified them.
There are still some people whose posts have not yet been voted on by @steemcurator01.
Assessments have been made that they do not have any mathematical possibility of reaching any of the 25 winning positions.
We will continue to visit those accounts and give catch-up votes where appropriate.
The Future of The Diary Game
The more open Season 3 of the Diary Game is ongoing.
There are no guaranteed votes from @steemcurator01 in Season 3 but many people who have continued posting their diaries are receiving good votes.
Remember though, to be in with a chance of getting a Lucky Day vote you must not be powering down at the same time!
We are already planning for a Season 4 which will take The Diary Game in a slightly different direction but we will be gauging the community sentiment before releasing details of that.
Review of @steemcurator accounts
Now Season 2 of The Diary Game is reaching its conclusion we are going to be reviewing the allocation of the @steemcurator accounts.
Their deployment for regional / country use was something of an experiment to help with the Diary Game curation.
Unfortunately this meant the previous support for community / topic based curation had to be set aside.
It might now be time to revert the Community Curation accounts back to a more topic based allocation as was used at the beginning of the 100 Days of Steem.
We will then be looking at new ways to provide support at the country level.
Community led developments such as the @steemseacurator account for Indonesia and South East Asia are particularly encouraging in this respect.
In the short term as the number of active Steemians in the Russian speaking countries has dropped, we would like to expand the coverage of the @steemcurator06 account to the whole of Europe.
We would therefore be grateful if the existing operators of that account (@filinpaul, @knopka145, @antorv, @olesia) would share the posting key with the other European Country Representatives (@alikoc07 in Turkey, @girolamomarotta in Italy) and work out a suitable rotation between you.
To encourage people to build up their Steem Power and contribute more to the community @steemcurator02 is now going to be focusing again mainly on posts set to Power Up 100%.
Again remember, @steemcurator02 won't be voting on your posts if you are powering down at the same time.
If people also want to gain liquid rewards they can of course just post twice a day instead of once - set one post to Power Up 100% and the other to 50%/50% rewards.
Season 2 of The Diary Game has been a major learning experience.
It has worked and it hasn't worked.
It generated positivity and it generated negativity.
We are looking forward to moving onwards with the positivity.
Positivity is one of the key words that we cherish. It stands tall alongside commitment, creativity, consistency, quality and loyalty.
We invite everyone that shares this same vocabulary to join us in the next phase of the re-evolution of Steem.
