March Launch Post version 2.jpg

Happy New Month!

Hey Steemians! It’s Q here, the mascot of the Your Top 3 Contest and I’m here to announce the next exciting round of our fun monthly STEEM contest!

Though I usually try to keep things positive and have you choose your faves, this month, after a suggestion from one of the Top 3ers @tryskele, I’m flipping the coin and asking you to pick some of the worst...

We’ve all been there. Going out on a date to the cinema or picking out a film to watch at home. You set aside the time, grab your popcorn and get ready to enjoy a few hours in a fantasy world. Perhaps it’s a film you’ve been waiting to see for months, or maybe just something your significant other chose off of the latest new releases. You settle in and start watching….only to be utterly and truly disappointed.

Everyone can list off some of their favourite movies, but this round I want you to share the ones that you would never hope to watch again! Which ones didn’t live up to the hype in your mind, bored you to tears, or actually made you walk out of the theater. Whether the acting was just plain amateur or the plot left everything to be desired, share with us which ones we should avoid lest we waste our own few hours of precious time viewing them. It doesn’t matter what the rest of the world and reviewers say about it, I want the ones that you personally abhor. Think of this month as our own Top 3 Razzies 😉

How To Enter This Critical Contest

1 - Create a blog post with your top 3 nominations along with your reasoning behind them. Entry posts must have:

  • A minimum of 250 words total and
  • The #yourtop3 tag MUST be in the first 5 tags used
  • The deadline for submitting entries is the 9th

2 - Put a link to your blog in the comments section of this blog.

3 - Set your post payout to 50/50. You keep the SP and then transfer the STEEM and/or SBD (whichever is paid out at the time) to @yourtop3 with a link to your blog post entry in the transfer memo. This is the minimum entry fee, but you can add as much as you like to it! The more you add, the more you can win.There is no maximum entry fee.

You must send your entry fee in by the 19th of the month, otherwise you won’t qualify for the final standings for the month and won’t get credit for the entry for the league standings either and that would make me very sad - don’t make me sad...

Not sure how to find your post payout? Look in your Steem Wallet under Author Rewards to find the exact payout for your post. In the example below you would send the 0.014 SBD and 6.587 STEEM over to the @yourtop3 account as your entry fee. I’ll take it from there and convert all of the prize pool to SBD for easy prize distribution at the end of the month!

Creating Your Entry Post

You are welcome to create your own post but for your convenience I have created two different templates. The first one; a more complex version, contains some markdown/html coding creating a nice table for you to edit. The second template; for those of you not familiar with markdown/html coding, is a simpler version. In both templates, I’ve highlighted in red text where you need to edit.

  • The table version can be found here

  • The basic version can be found here

How detailed you want to go is up to you but I know you can do better than “because I like it” 😉

I have allowed our Panel members to create their own post with their own suggestions but these will NOT be entered into the contest - I forbid it! Instead the Panel’s post payouts will be used to add to the prize pool for bigger prizes.

What Happens Next?

I will first review all submissions for eligibility.

Then all submissions will be put into a public dpoll.

Once the dpoll is complete, I’ll review the results and combine them with my patented scoring system before dishing out the prizes to the top 3!

OMG that is too funny. I love it.

Haha thanks for the suggestion this month @tryskele! I reckon it's going to be a corker this month!

Movies I hate? Hmm... there have been several, but can I remember what they were? This could be tough because I don't usually remember the trash I've discarded. 😂

Haha, well we can't make it TOO easy on you. ;)

Real adventurers don't want it to be easy! :)

Haha I know how you feel, think I sold a lot of dvds I bought many moons ago thinking they were good but were actually awful on reflection - may have to check my eBay account here... and my current collection 😂

"I guess I could start by listing any movies I've seen that starred Richard Dreyfus..."

"I could use Ted Danson also, but I don't think he's ever been in a movie, has he?" he says, snickering.

I think I will enter this one, I'm not even sure if I want to think too much, though because some were truly awful experiences.

Awesome! Let's see what garbage you can come up with, haha!

Lol sequels, so many sequels. Straight to VHS or TV is a goldmine.

Haha, right? We thought about limiting to non-sequels, but that's half the selection right there. ;)

Lol! Seems Q was in a slightly darker mood this month making us go back through the torture of those forgotten films! Be good to see you in the mix!

I know some so bad they left me questioning humanity (high points for emotional response I guess). I'll try to diversify a bit, because I could easily fill the list with just one director. It will be hard to choose his worst film though.

Will shake the cob webs around and try remember which ones bored me to death....

To be continued.....

Have a great day @yourtop3 Team

Haha, I'm staring at my whole DVD collection and can see plenty of candidates (all of them lol)!

Can't wait to see the nominations and reasons, this month. It should be a laugh.

Good luck everyone.

It's SaturdayNight which means comedy from me!

Get on to this post about the 3 worst movies in my life. If you've ever seen charlie brooker's critical comedy that's what to expect... except maybe not quite as good 😆

Epic! I've swung by and had a look at your nominations! Thanks for writing them!

Thanks. Do let me know when the voting starts.

I'm not being arrogant, but at the moment I have 1 day off from steem a week (today) with all the community stuff at the ink well. And I lose track of what's going on at the best of times lol

I shouldn't even be on steem right now. I'm gonna go watch a film or make some money finishing a commissioned website piece. Or maybe just go to sleep for 14 hours 🤣

I'll be sure to let you know @raj808 - I send reminders out about the key events throughout the month so you won't miss a thing!

Don't burn yourself out there!

Hey @raj808! Just letting you I've begun the dpoll now, which you can view and even vote on here!

Good luck!


Coolness! I've swung by and had a look at your nominations! Thanks for getting involved!
