Time for another look at who has been oiling up our blockchain with engaging commentary this past week.

The Hive Engagement League

This league is not based around financial rewards and relates to engagement.

Everyone currently on my master list has a chance here - including those powering down or dealing in delegations over the past couple of weeks.

I've used some metrics relating to:

  • Number of people spoken to (PS)
  • Comments - replies to replies - depth > 2 (C R)
  • Comments - length in characters (C L)
  • Witness votes (W) (for those voting via proxy, your total is always 30)
  • Up-votes to others (V)
  • Up-votes to different authors (U V)
  • Self-votes - No minus score but no bonus HIVE(S V)

Note: Copy/Paste comments will be excluded!

Congratulations to all you winners out there! Anyone who is participating is automatically a winner in my book! Of course, we have to acknowledge his high holiness (Wait! He won the swearing contest, ain't nothing holy about him! ) @Galenkp! Congrats on your 1st place again! That must be at least a gazillion times! That is awesome!

And settling, all too comfortably, in 2nd place is Johann @johannpiber, who slid up a place to capture it! That is honestly great @johannpiber! I'm impressed with how you just jumped right in. And of course, #TeamUSA's own, JJ @tattoodjay, taking up the third place to complete the top three! Congratulations to all! I know I feel more engaged this week.

Congratulations to lucky #9, @tarazkp!! You placed on my favorite number, and 5 Hive has been sent to your account. Enjoy! ;)

Asher. @abh12345 Congratulations on placing 5th. Hello? It's those awesome contests you are running! I swear! Check out Booms @meesterboom last post on the beers. He is running for a recount on that one! Everything else aside, I want to thank you for keeping this up and running and being encouraging to others. I hope this week is good to everyone and remember to practice proper social distancing still.

!tip .20

Congratulations to you too, Denise, well done 👍🙂

I just wanted to know how it feels so high up on the ladder, from next week on it will be different for sure ;)
Thank you so much for your kind words, Denise, have a wonderful Sunday and a great week.

Cheers and !BEER

How does it feel? I'm glad you get up there and I'm sorry that work will be starting again although I'm pretty sure that your family is happy about that. LOL have a wonderful week and I will see you in the comment section!!

Well, it feels the same as on the third or on the fifth place I guess ;)

Oh, all in all we have had a good time I think, and I tried to not disturb my kids too much ;)

My daughter will still be at home from school for another two weeks and my son has not heard anything from his company. Both wouldn't mind staying at home for longer. My wife and I are working in the same office and so we have had the same off work times. We will need some time to get used of normal work and working times though.

Have a good week too, Denise 🙂

Cheers and !BEER

Thank you very much Ms dswigle :*

My pleasure, sir!! :)

Hive is a good place to practice social distancing isn't it? 10000+ interactions and no covid-19 in sight :)

Thank you for the nice write up, number sponsorship, and tip Denise, and well done for placing at number 4!

Oiling the chain! I love it, Asher! And you added lots of grease yourself. Thanks for all you do, and thanks to @justineh
@azircon and for the prize sponsorship!

Congrats to @galenkp, and thanks for writing that great post about the importance of engagement! I suspect there are a lot of new EL members because of it.

And @johannpiber! Those are impressive numbers this week. Nicely done. I love seeing your thoughtful comments on my posts.

@tattoodjay and everyone else on the list makes Hive an incredibly active place to be!

I'm sending my winnings along to @stellabelle For being in the lucky 40 spot in the top half of the list! ❤️

Thank you so much @melinda010100, but this was just due to the rain and I haven't been really working last week. From Monday on I'll be working normal fulltime again as I did before the lockdown, and then I'll certainly not have that much time anymore.
Thanks a lot again and have a great Sunday @melinda010100 🙂

what's a lucky number? I don't understand exactly what my 40 number means, is that number of comments???????? Thanks for it, i appreciate it.😄

You are number 40 on the EL list and each week I send a couple of Hive to the person who is 40th. You can see your number of comments on the chart. You appear to have made 105 comments this week!
Nicely done!

wow, that's cool. thanks!

People have chosen a number to sponsor, you have landed on Melinda's and so a small prize should be on it's way :)

Thank you Melinda!

Yes Galen picked up at least 5 new recruits with his post last week, excellent :D

Well done on your placing and thank you for championing the EL!

... and I thought I have had a lazy week, but it seems I commented more that I had thought. It was a rainy week though, what has given me more time to sit at the computer instead of going outside 😉

Congratulations to all from the very top to the bottom of the list - it's also cool that there are so many new names on the list.

Thank you very much for all Asher, my prize has already gone to the lucky number 12 @markkujantunen 😊

I wish you all a nice Sunday and a great week ahead.

Cheers and !BEER


Thank you very much!

My pleasure - you're most welcome, @markkujantunen, have a great Sunday 🙂
Cheers and !BEER

Thanks Johann!

I guess the rain is yet another reason to stay indoors, at least we have things to do on Hive to occupy our time.

Well done on your placing, and thank you for sponsoring a lucky number.

Enjoy your Sunday :)

You're welcome Asher :)

We don't really have any other reasons anymore to stay at home than bad weather, because our measures have been loosened a lot and from tomorrow on our work days will be quite about the same as before the lockdown.
That will also mean that my spare time for the Hive will be less than it was during the past months.

Have a nice Sunday too,
cheers and !BEER

Hey @abh12345, here is a little bit of BEER from @johannpiber for you. Enjoy it!

I love the diligence that the Hive community has. I would love to understand better how to be more helpful to the community. Is there a "start here post" to get better at this?

Thanks :)

Not really any start here post, it's just a matter of commentating around many blogs.

I will add you to the list so you may appear next week, welcome and good luck!

Great thanks :) Looking forward to it. Cheers

Look at this list of engaged beasts! Congratulations to everyone for being super active!

Oooo look at that, you know what this part timer is going to sing don't you... I have a blue house with a blue windowwwww 🎶

This is a "dance on top of the speakers" song 😄. It brings fond memories from year 2000.

Hahaha, I know man! Was just entering secondary school when this one was rampant in the UK and it was definitely a school disco anthem for our year! Those speakers must have got wrecked 😄

there were the golden days aye! those speakers were built like tanks 💪.

haha :D

Hahaha oh my goodness! That's insane! Definitely some G forces there! Or should that be B forces?!

There are some mental folk knocking around - I'd be happy with a Fiesta with standard speakers!

Ha ha! The dream truck! can use one of those in the studio instead of a fan.

1998 is back! I've wandered piss-drunk around many a club (ok, same club) with that one playing. Those were the days :)

Nice one dude, cheers for the share!

Haha, for me it was our middle school leaving year, many a school disco had this one on, you know the kind, spin the bottle, karaoke... also reminds me of "It's Like That" by Run DMC, another one I tried to sing along to but the words were a LOT different to what I had been singing 😆

No worries for the share, hope more people get involved with it and we see more sign ups! Can't be having a part timer finishing in the top 20 for the best part of the last 12 months!

Spin the bottle, that one came around at the worst time for me. Puberty, what a shit-show that is!

Got a few more this past week, but I still think a part-time effort will keep you in the ranks for a while yet, cheers!

The old G-dog huh? I don't know how he does it...Oh yeah, by engaging.

Thanks for the 15 hive bro, and to the sponsors @azircon, @justineh and it is much appreciated. Thanks champs.

Well done to all the new people who joined the EL this week and the usual suspects that are here each week.

Sounds like a solid approach to take in a league of engagement :)

Congrats again, racking up that HIVE ready for the biggest bull we've ever seen!

And thanks for sending some new recruits over this week, the best weekly tally of active participants in a long time.

Yay for new recruits! (And the best ever tally of participants.)

Double yay for a bull run.

Nice one another week sitting at the top. You are doing what we should all be doing being all over the place.

Tha ks mate. It would be good to see some new names up there. It takes effort though I guess. I think this week will be the week someone else gets up there.

You have got it sorted and in a groove now. I expect you to be top of the charts for a while yet. When is work starting or are you back already and still knocking these numbers out?

I've been working the whole time, it never stopped for me. I'll back off a little this week though, I think it will be good for someone else to have a go..

Top 15 in Engagement League in my first week!
Thanks for the prize! Didn't expect to be ranked so high... Next step, Top10 :)

I noticed a new name in there, well done sir :)

Thanks for adding that name... 🤣
Will see if I can keep it up during the next week...

A pleasure, good luck!

This is a great effort mate! So glad you took the decision to get into the EL. The thing I see here is that you engage and that's going to drive your enjoyment and account upwards. Have a crack at knocking me off the top bro...Get it done.

Yup... engagement is the best way to grow accounts and followers... Appreciate other's effort and they will appreciate yours!

Thanks for the kind words!

You're welcome. Keep it up.

That is a really good effort and the only way to grow your account.

Thanks for your encouragement! I will try to push more and help others to grow together... ;)

That is how this works and in the beginning was doing exactly what you were doing for about 18 months solid. It is tiring and time consuming but the only organic way to grow unfortunately. People look for short cuts and there are none.

the only organic way to grow unfortunately.

Why unfortunately? This is the great way to meet some awesome people here on chain... and I have met a bunch of them and I hope I will in the future...

And you are 100% right, people always search for shortcuts through spamming, 2-word comments without reading a post... But, it doesn't work that way... ;)

Only unfortunately as it takes hours and hours lol. I think I spent about 8 hours a day for the first 18 months growing my account and have been fortunate enough to start at the right time. I never came with any ideas of making money as I stumbled upon the place quite by accident. There are loads of great people here and most of the ones here now have been here for a long time already.

Ummmm... Oiling it up! Congrats on the week of doing oiling?

Special congratulations to @mistakili, who picks up everyone's favourite number prize!

Oil - chain? Would you prefer 'greasing'? :)

Anyway! Cheers for sponsoring lucky 33, the long-standing lucky number no less!

 last year (edited)

Oil-chain.... Now I get it... And it hurts!

Loool okay.....thanks @bengy I appreciate

Thank you @abh12345 and congrats to everyone.

Well done again with the top spot G-Dog.(@galenkp)

Thank you @tarazkp for the support.

We are happy to keep our performance in the top 20 and you have a great tool here to track ourselves Asher!

Thank you too, and well done for yet another top 10 finish :)

Thank you. A bit of tough going, but we try my friend.

Look, dear @abh12345, I was convinced that this week I would be back in the top 10 overall, instead I didn't even arrive in the consolation prize zone!!🤣


Getting tougher isn't it, good luck next time :)

I feel very happy with lucky number 22. Thank you @abh12345 and @amico. Happy, happy, happy engagement league Sunday to everyone else!

A nice number to land on just outside the 20. Hopefully there will be a load of new people to chat to soon enough, all wanting to earn cryptocurrency :)

Yeah, #22 is a cool number, LOL! SBI sponsored: cheers & !BEER 🍻

Hey @abitcoinskeptic, here is a little bit of BEER from @amico for you. Enjoy it!

Thank you sir! I must've gotten carried away again ... 🙃

As always @abh12345, I appreciate your weekly efforts to keep this going. I've even sent a little "traffic" your way. With your querying expertise, I wonder if you've ever thought of some stat where you show the % of the total # of those active vs. the # you have on your list?

Just a thought ...

P.S. Am I reading this right, somehow you powered up the 1 HIVE gift you sent?

Looks like you have :)

Well there are just under a 3rd active than the total list number, 30% or so, which looking at overall retention data, is far higher.

Yes the gift has been powered up. You can choose any account to power up to but the default is set as your own.


Okay, good to know. Thank you sir!

Very exciting with the engagement league, also add my name.
Also note that I want to sponsor a lucky number for 1 Hive and the number is 19.

Great stuff, welcome and thank you for sponsoring number 19 :)

The opportunity to be associated with the initiative, it is really a great pleasure for me.

Hey, tell me please @abh12345. I noticed this in our notifications :

What those red bars mean ? Is that related to the engagement in hive somehow ?

I am not sure to be honest!

Let me tag @gtg maybe he knows. Do you know what that means @gtg ?

Finally....I can see my name up there...(right in middle) 👍 good to be among the top far so good.. slowly and steadily win the race.....though it's not easy but challenges is something excites me....

It's pretty tough at present to make the top ranks, Hive as brought back the engagement :) Good luck next time!

That's true ..looking at the list all of them are running after one another....and it is tough but not impossible....I think we need to call upon our comment machine..@janton to topple the head


So @galenkp really is the master of comments in this league :) congrats!

Also to the others, of course. This will be my first week, curious to see where I end up :)

Have a great Sunday!

Thanks @thisismylife I appreciate it. 🙂


Welcome :)

The best spot I reached, 20th position. And no Self Vote, that is again an achievement. Hopefully I can do better than this next week.

Just scraped into the prizes, well done :D

Great run again I will transfer my prize to @whatamidoing

Thank you Britt and well done on yet another top 10 :)

Well done to commenting community, I would like to join this group please.

Engagement is what makes blogging fun.

Glad to have you on-board, welcome :)

Thanks for kind consideration, thoroughly enjoy reading variety of posts here on Hive.

This week was really cool to find more amazing content from hive community finally some activeness is back which i was missing since long time

And again, great work @papilloncharity on 10th and I have powered up a bit of HIVE for you :)

Thanks for sponsoring, a number dedicated to @papilloncharity :)

I will have to up my prize so that he doesn't leave me for a number that offers more :D

A great thank you @tarazkp, I think that it's destiny.
Some good company on this list!

You are doing a great job for society. Next week I turn on relaxed mode:)

Great to see so many users doing their thing and engaging. Thanks again Asher for doing this. Would love to get your other leagues back as well as they really helped the growth rate.

Things are looking up engagement-wise, nice to see.

Yeah, that one Paula did the numbers for, I'm not sure I could handle another one at present - perhaps if Hive moons and I can go full-time again :)

Totally understand as those sorts of things tie you down time wise as well. Engagement League is enough for you anyway which is also a commitment on your part.

Thanks for hosting the league

congrats to everyone in the league engagement is what makes this place special

1 hive sent to @daltono for coming in at spot number 16

Always a pleasure, thanks very much for sponsoring a number and congrats on another top 3 finish :)

Cheers have a good week ;)

Thanks heaps 😊

That is a true dedication and showing unconditional love to the blockchain. Truly those soul really good.

Yes these people are really putting the effort in, would you like to join?

I am 100% willing to support our beloved blockchain to thrive sir.

I thought I had a pretty good week, but this still shows I’m lacking a bit. Time to grind and see what it really takes to climb the ranks!

It's getting tougher out there, some hefty scores this week!

Yeah I noticed that. People are spending more time which is awesome.
