This was my second week participating in @abh12345's 'Curation and Engagment League', a great competition which gamifies and gives us more incentive to curating and for getting out there to engage with more and more people here on STEEM
Engaging with the League
This week I was in place #14 ! The prior week was my first week participating and I was in place #22, so I am happy to see such improvement which I wasn't really expecting!
The league is scored on a few different metrics, thankfully earnings is not one of them :D

Comments - number of (C)
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 proxying witness votes, 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 STEEM (S V)
First of all, if you complete the week without a single self-vote AND place within the top 15% (which is everyone who has a score shown on the scoreboard in the post) you win the spot-prize of 1 STEEM for not self-voting, so it makes the incentive quite juicy to stay away from self-voting, something I had really only done once or twice before joining the league anyways.
Second, there are quite a few people who 'sponsor' a spot each week, which means they will send an [SBI unit][sbi] to whoever is the person who places in the spot they selected (which they selected the previous week). Last week I was lucky enough to place in one of those spots, so I committed to sponsoring spot 69 this week which turned out to be @kaerpediem so they got sent an SBI unit from me :)
This was my score board this week:
Number 14, right below the creator ^_^
Compared to the prior week:
So there was improvement for every single scoring metric! *The only 0 is for self-votes
So we are moving on up the ladder, according to the numbers it looks like I need to reach out to more people.
People spoken to and
upvotes to different authors, those numbers could be closer together for sure. Had I spoken with 102 people this week I may have come in within the top 10 - but I'm not sure. Each metric is weighted differently but I do know the focus is on engaging with others, for example posts and upvote count aren't weighted as heavily as
people spoken to and
voted for is.
So far I am really enjoying being a part of this competition and earning some free STEEM on the side is always a plus, every little bit helps! It motivates me to leave comments whenever I can think of something relevant to say, it also stops me from feeling guilty if I write too much in a reply - as I do most days LOL!
Two Days without SBI?
So those few days of STEEM downtime stunk but at least we were all in the same boat! Additionally it seemed like @steembasicincome was down between the days that STEEM was up, ha! I postponed one of my posts because I didn't want the post to miss out on an SBI vote - but it turned out that SBI did back track and vote posts that had been posted while it was down.
I ended up kicking myself in the foot because postponing the post while SBI was down, forced me to postpone the post even longer due to STEEM going down the second time.
Oyy boy. I had thought SBI wouldn't come back and vote previous posts when it was up and running again but it turns out it did. Well, this is something I will know if there is ever a 'next time' (hope not!)
*No vote value was missed while SBI was down since rshare balance did accumulate, so the next time it voted it just gave a bigger upvote. As far as I could tell, rshare balance did not accumulate while STEEM was down, though.
Here's a little surprise to coincide with the post's topic:
First person to include Tip: Even if you don't use SteemPeak front-end, you can still use the wallet page without logging in to check the balance of anyone's SBI units. The screenshot below was taken as a logged out user looking into my account: 💋 ~«[Kharma♪Scribbles]» 💋
"SBI + Sugar and Spice!" anywhere in their reply comment will receive an SBI unit (1) sponsored from me, but you must hold 5 or *less units yourself in order to qualify. Entries valid until Sunday, Sept 8th 6:00pm UTC
*For those who hold more than that, you can alternatively tag another user who would qualify, and they will receive the sponsored unit instead :D -surprise- 🥳🥳
Just go to https://steempeak.com/@USERNAME/transfers and look for the SBI balance as pictured in the image above!
Good luck in whatever challenges you face this week, and I hope to see more of you joining the Engagement League! Have fun!
