Hey everyone, we've decided to start a new Gods Unchained contest, this one will be different than the previous one as it will focus more on on chain activity rather than just playing GU. The latter will still exist and our good dev @gu-lord-dark will make sure all eligible games and points will be counted and distributed as well but we will also be giving out points for other more curated activities.
Since our last contest in December we've seen a huge rise in our community, it's nearing close to 1000 subscribers and is decently active.
This next contest will attempt to bring even more activity to the community and Hive and here are a few ways we've thought of going about it.
First off we are going to start off the contest with some card giveaways over on Twitter, everyone loves cards and with the big amount of newcomers who haven't been able to play 2 earn their way into some cards they need yet they could use some extra chances at winning them. We've seen some nice growth there as well and a big thanks to @squirrelacus for helping keep it active by POSH'ing.
The requirements to enter the giveaway will be pretty straight forward such as liking/retweeting the giveaways, the only difference here is that to win the card you will also need a Hive account and comment on the posts that will go with each giveaway on Twitter. Through these post rewards we will also grow an additional prize pool for the contest aside from the sponsored rewards. On the twitter account there is a link to join our discord where they can request a free Hive account by linking their GU ID with the request to make sure it's a unique player.
When requesting a hive account, players will be able to drop a hive username along with it as their referral, if someone already on Hive recommended them to create an account to join the contest rather than them finding out through the Twitter giveaways. This will give the referrer extra points that go toward the main contest prize pool.
Onboarders in the OCD Onboarding project who are inviting GU players with their own link will also classify for points starting from when the contest begins.
On Chain Activity
Luckily we managed to find a few good curators who joined Hive recently and know a lot about GU. They've been hard at work learning the ins and outs of Hive and curation and they will help giving out points based on activities such as posting, engagement and overall social scores and how well they're using Hive. Genuine following growth, getting followers, trying out different Hive dapps, posting in other communities, etc and so forth.
This of course also means that if we see spam attempts and low effort comments such as "good post" or "keep going", etc, they won't be counted towards any points and may even get you minus points if overdone.
To make sure anyone willing to participate in this contest properly we will also keep an eye on their RC and help them out with HP delegations throughout the contest.
GU games played
For those who aren't that social in general we will do another round of counting their games and giving out points similar to the last contest. The nice thing here is that we already have a huge list of participants from the previous one so everyone who was on there will be automatically entered into this one while everyone new will have to re-apply in the post we'll make for this.
This post is mainly created as a general overview of how we're planning on running the next contest. We appreciate any feedback and if you have any improvements in mind to make this run better/fairer. The main idea is to grow the Gods On Chain community and show players who aren't on Hive what they're missing out on, most of the players I've onboarded in the past couple of months have had a very positive experience of Hive so far.
We will be posting a series of posts in the near future about the contest, some will mainly be about being able to register but keep in mind that the post rewards will be used to add more funds to the prize pool of the contest or reward those making it possible by counting games and on chain activities.
We already have some sponsors but with the amount of participants we had last time and possible increase this next round we'll attempt to grow the pool through post rewards.
If you're interested in sponsoring some extra rewards please let us know in the comments or dm me on Discord.
PS! Shouout to @freeztag for these cool GU dividers I probably overused.
