Dreem-WOTW S1 R3: Reminder of Dreemport 27th Sep submission date

in Scholar and Scribe2 months ago (edited)

Just popping in on a beautiful Friday morning... ok it's a bit wet here in the UK but I am starting to feel the crispness of Autumn creeping in and I do love Autumn 🧡🧡🧡 I hope you are all looking forward to the weekend in your various spaces scattered around the world.

This is just a gentle reminder and nudge that Tuesday 27th September (yep that is 4 sleeps time... for those of us who feel the childhood joy of counting in sleeps hehe) is the THE DAY for submitting your dreem-wotw entry into Dreemport. If it's not in Dreemport, it won't count towards the dreem-wotw official results as Dreemport covers all of our screening checks and Dreemport public curators (ie: you guys as writers if you choose to curate on Wednesday next week) read and rank the posts to determine a short list for the grading team to select the official winners. And don't forget... to earn your engagement points which go towards your final score if you make the top 5 for grading... you must curate the contest posts on Wednesday in Dreemport via your random 5. The engagement points have made the difference between 1st and 2nd place in past rounds... so worth getting involved and supporting the community.

This month marks the first month of Scholar & Scribe adding some sponsorship to the prize pool too. If you are writing short story fiction or poetry, we encourage you to post your piece into the Scholar and Scribe community, which is a wonderful community for creative writing. Please also use the #scholarandscribe tag to ensure that you qualify for curation in the community. Any other types of written content being entered for dreem-wotw may also use the #scholarandscribe tag but should not post directly to the community as they really are all about fiction and poetry. Non-fiction pieces and discursive essays should be posted in appropriate communities.

Please remember to use the tag #dreem-wotw or #dwotw so that others can find your posts to support. You are also welcome to drop a link into the comments on this post. To be considered for a prize, however, you must drop your post into Dreemport on Tuesday between 4 am UTC and midnight UTC. Please remember to leave some time to curate your daily random 5 before submission 🤗

hi all... just a gentle nudge and friendly reminder to do your public curation of the contest posts in dreemport today, Wednesday 28th September. You can curate even if you don't have a post to share. You will still earn dreem tokens and a card for aligning with Guild, and you will be having a say in which entries get shortlisted into the top 5 for grading 💗 It's a wonderful way to increase the eyes on dreem-wotw posts too... because if you don't have any post you'd like to share today, and you curate, it starts to create a favourable ratio of curation to submissions and everyone gets more eyes on their content. Hopefully, having more dreemers visit, improves the quality of engagement on each person's post too. I will tag only those who entered the contest as they also have a vested interest in engaging meaningfully during Dreemport public curation today (if your post gets shortlisted for grading, you are definitely going to be wanting to have earned engagement points to add to your final score! 😉):

Thanks for the reminder! 😃

Thanks for keeping me us updated @samsmith1971 🥰

Thanks so much - I'll hopefully be heading to the Dreem-WOTW tag after I get all these tabs cleared and closed 🤣

hehe...awesome! for the public and for staff entries (not graders) - they must make sure that they do actual curation in Dreemport for it to count towards the contest grading... because as graders we look at the posts they curated in Dreemport in order to apply an engagement score to the Dreemport top 5 authors. But then after doing Dreemport curation... sure they should go look up the tag too if they want to catch more of the entries and support more peeps ... some are using #dreem-wotw others are using #dwotw

Thank you for the reminder. I was actually working as per the deadline which I did submitted on time. 😊
I will do my Dreemport task soon.

Thank you 🙏🏾

Thanks for the reminder, Sam.

Done my curations and rankings for the day.

I cannot wait to see what cards I get

Thanks for the reminder, I’ll go and do my duty for the day 😊

Oh just came online now , thanks for reminding us. Heading to dreemport now.

Thanks for the reminder..hehe

Thank you @samsmith1971! Lots of great entries to read today, my morning coffee was brilliant :D

I was wondering, do you have to submit to be aligned for the day, or do you only need to curate?

Oh, fabulous! I am curating now and have no idea how I am going to split the ones I have been allocated. They are all looking to be on a par...in a good way! Curation can be done with or without submission of your own post. So you could choose to curate every day in order to earn Dreem tokens and cards for alignment, and enjoy engagement with dreemers, even if you have no posts to share. Then on the days you want to submit, you do both curation and submission. Hope that clarifies it 💗 !ALIVE

Very true. I am undecided between S&S and TheInkwell though...😅

Thanks so much for the reminder, I have a lot of writing to do :) ... I'll probably blend this with the SS Dreamscape contest. Then I have the Picture Is Worth A Thousand Words prompt, and The Inkwell prompt, and Let Our Picture Tell Your Story, and Let's Make A Collage, and I think an Ecency contest is coming up? I'm not short on ideas 🤣

How does this work? I want to participate, but I have no idea how.

Hi @idlemind,

I'll try to give you a brief guide... And if I overlook something, I hope someone else will chime in?

  • Go to https://dreemport.com/ and create an account for yourself there
  • Read the contest details and follow the instructions here: Distant Thoughts Abound
  • Write your entry - prose, poetry, etc. focused on the word 'Distant' - be creative and original
  • Publish your entry on the internet wherever you like
  • ON THE DAY of the contest (September 27th) log in to https://dreemport.com/
  • Curate five (5) articles there on Dreemport
  • Submit your original entry on Dreemport on the 27th within the specified time window

I think that covers it... Good luck!

Yep that pretty much covers it, thank you Creatr... :-) and @idlemind don't forget to come back on Wednesday to curate the contest posts in Dreemport too - if you end up top 5, you may need the engagement points to sneak into the top 3 official results once graded. !PIZZA !ALIVE !LUV

@samsmith1971 can I still post a story on Dreemport?

yes you can :-) For dreem-wotw you have until midnight UTC today to share a post in Dreemport.. remember to leave yourself enough time to curate your random 5.

I finished curating and ranking because I can't submit my entry of I don't curate first.

Fabulous...this is how it works. Good to see you're finding your way around... you engage with others, then others read your post and engage with you :-) !PIZZA

@samsmith1971 @wrestlingdesires just did my first post on Dreemport.

woohoo!!!! That is awesome... welcome dreemer hehe

You're welcome, Sam...
Oh, and it's 'creatr,' LOWERcase 'c' please...🙏 I want folks to know I'm not trying to compete with THE Creator! 😁 I just admire his handiwork.

BTW, I hear you may be seeing Dreemie again soon? I wish our visits had overlapped!😁🙏❤️

Gotcha @creatr hehe... aah she mentioned that, did she? !LOLZ ... yes... I am heading back over the Atlantic in a couple of weeks' time... I am so looking forward to it! Counting the sleeps 😂💗 It would have been great to meet you and your wife 🤗 Hopefully another time then...

I do get to meet @bluefinstudios this time... yep Greg, I am very much looking forward to meeting you 🤗 ... we are gonna have some chilled-out stress-free chillaxing fun (except for that little bit about the working vacay 🤣 that was dropped on us ROFLLLLL - so who's gonna break the bad news to @dreemsteem then hahahahaha?)

What did the Buddhist say at the sandwich shop?

@creatr thank you for this. By the way, what do you mean by curate? Do you mean to vote? Thank you.

Hi @idlemind,

You're welcome. :)

No, curation is not voting, it is evaluating.

"Curating" is evaluating an article for certain characteristics.

In the case of Dreemport, you must become a member there and read about the criteria for curating. The basic requirements for a Dreemport article to be acceptable are that the author provide information about the source of any images they use (and using copyrighted images is forbidden) as well as a very strict "no plagiarism" policy. The article cannot be a copy of someone else's work, not even a "rewrite" that draws too heavily from another article.

You will need to read and evaluate/curate five articles before you can submit your own article.

I see. I think I'm getting it. Thank you.

I had no idea about this, please what does it entail?

hi Balikis and @idlemind :-) If you follow the link in the above post to the contest post you will see:

It is a monthly writing contest that is run by myself and a small grading team and hosted on Dreemport. We took it over from scholaris - it was previously called pob-wotw. The word prompt for this month is distant (as opposed to distance) . You may write a short story fiction, poem or discursive essay (eg: a philosophical response). You can post your entry on any platform and in any community but you must share it on Dreemport on Tuesday 27th September as all entries are collated and screened there on the day and then subject to public curation the day after. The top entries as determined by Dreemport are then graded by the grading team against a grading rubric to determine the final prize winners. Engagement points also count and can only be earned if you curate the contest posts in Dreemport on Wednesday 28th September as part of your random 5 allocation. The contest post should provide all the details you need. If you still have a specific question after reading through it, feel free to ask :-)

Oh.. I understand now.. Thanks for this, I do appreciate it and will ask questions if the need arises.

Awesome... looking forward to seeing what you come up with, my lovely !PIZZA

I read the post and if I am to understand it better, the post has to be published on Tuesday night and submitted on Wednesday after curation right?

hi Balikis... not quite... you may publish anytime you like on Hive or any platform, but you must submit your post to Dreemport on Tuesday. So Tuesday you do your curation of your randomly allocated 5 posts in Dreemport, then you share your own post in Dreemport (also on Tuesday). On Wednesday, you come back to Dreemport and curate your random 5 which will be from the contest posts that were submitted on Tuesday, and you engage with them. If your post makes the Dreemport top 5 then it will be shortlisted for the grading team to review and decide on the final order and the top 3. In this case your engagement on the contest posts during Dreemport curation time will count towards your overall graded score :-)
In simple terms...

  1. write your post
  2. Submit it to Dreemport on Tuesday
  3. Come back and do Dreemport curation again on Wednesday even if you don't have another post to share. You can still curate.

Dear @samsmith1971,
May I ask you to review and support the Dev Marketing Proposal (https://peakd.com/me/proposals/232) we presented on Conference Day 1 at HiveFest?
The campaign aims to onboard new application developers to grow our ecosystem. If you missed the presentation, you can watch it on YouTube.
You cast your vote for the proposal on Peakd, Ecency,

Hive.blog / https://wallet.hive.blog/proposals
or using HiveSigner.

Thank you!

Fantastic proposal arcange! You have my support. It's projects like this that will expand utility for Hive blockchain and the Hive token. Anything that achieves that is something that we all should be supporting. !PIZZA

Thank you for your support @samsmith1971, really appreciate it! 👍
!BEER

So, provided the PeakD scheduler functions as promised, at 21:21 PDT, my entry to The Dreemport WOTW Competition,

"Distant Lovers" - A Sonnet

should appear in my blog...

ENJOY!

hehe fab... make sure you share it in Dreemport today Tuesday 27th September too so that it can be included in the contest x

Done, Thank You! <3
