There's a Fork on the Horizon!

Things will change but we will certainly persevere.

This blockchain is a place of constant change, and while this can be a bit unsettling sometimes, that's really just what comes naturally with being at the forefront of technological and societal progress.

While the new reward-rules with convergent-linear claims and a reduced author-share can look quite gloomy and frightening from afar, we should not lose vision of the progress that awaits beyond the horizon.

SMTs are well underway in development and are expected to go onto the testnet before the year ends. The renaissance of the platform, that which has already been started through a workaround on a privately-operated side-chain called steem-engine, SMTs and steem-communities on the base-layer of the blockchain are promising to take that to the next level and beyond.

Lots of technical mumbo-jumbo, I know, let's just leave it at this:

ย 

Exciting times lie ahead of us!

ย

0.287 SBD, 7.932 STEEM, 8.325 PAL and 153.8808 CCC

ย 
ย 
Need more details and numbers about the Prize-Pool? There's a whole spreadheet for you!
I haven't fully integrated the tribe bookkeeping in there, yet. You'll find it way off to the right: columns BF & BG.


As always, friends and family on the Planet Googly discord were asked to select up to three personal favorites from all five valid entries made to the tag since the previous announcement was posted. The voting ended in a tie between two grand winners and a strong 2nd winner on their tail.

the qualifying posts were submitted by:
@steemean, @marblely, @brittandjosie,
@marpa and @krakonos
today's guest judges were:
@brittandjosie, @bucipuci, @dexterdev, @jpederson96,
@krystle, @marblely, @mathowl and @sparkesy43
guest judges can never vote for their own entries

ย 

drumroll please...

๐Ÿฅ AND HERE ARE OUR WINNERS: ๐Ÿฅ

๐Ÿฅˆ The 2nd winner today is: ๐Ÿฅˆ

@marblely with
"The worried corn"

The worried corn by @marblely

Starting of strong with another one of @marblely's googly kitchen-sink encounters. A great post (as always!) and it comes with a great GIF as well. Keep them coming @marblely!

ย 

ย 

๐Ÿฅ‡ The First Grand Winner is: ๐Ÿฅ‡

@marpa with
"Un Chocolate Extravagante"

Un Chocolate Extravagante by @marpa

It's more GIFs, several of them, aaaand even a whole youtube video with originally composed music under the original post. That's @marpa for you, coming again with her animated goofy googly greatness.

ย 

ย 

๐Ÿฅ‡ And the Other Grand Winner is: ๐Ÿฅ‡

@steemean with
"Another Monster from ฤŒimice Grove"

Another Monster from ฤŒimice Grove by @steemean

Finally, here's our second Grand Winner, @krakonos. He had to make this post twice in order to participate in the contest!!

Let me use this opportunity to talk about the usage of tags again:

ย 


AN IMPORTANT MESSAGE ABOUT THE USAGE OF TAGS:

The native steem tag-functionality only reads the first five tags under a post. A lot of frontends and especially the tribes are allowing the use of more tags, but native steem frontends and some RPC nodes might not index these properly! To make sure your entry can be considered for the contest, you must use #googlyeyes as one of these 1st five tags!

The excessive use of tags can cause issues on some frontends and should generally be discouraged. If you try to open the 1st post made by @krakonos on steemit with a direct link - it will not even load properly. Let alone that it's not featured under the tag #googlyeyes at all. Avoid such problems by using your tags with consideration!


ย 

Now that that's out of the way,
let's go on with the celebration...

ย 

aaaaand

another drumroll, please

๐Ÿฅ the Googly-Delegation-Winners are: ๐Ÿฅ

@krakonos, @marpa and @marblely

you will receive a delegation of
152.934, 152.934 and 131.086 SP
for at least 9 days.

All our winners are about equally stacked with steem-power and they all have decent and active voting manners. To accommodate the tie on the 1st rank we're doing a rather unusual 35/35/30 split of this round's avalable delegation fund today.

ย
