WOTW Contest

@Calumam is the creator of the Word of the Week Contest and this week's entry. Every week he presents a new word and challenges the community to write articles about it. The articles submitted by the community get evaluated against a grading rubric @Calumam created.

Except now the metrics are laid bare! The metrics for the WOTW contest are decoded.

We're all winners of this competition. Authors get increased exposure in the community and some extra voting rewards in the process.

We know you have what it takes.
Join us for this week's OUTRAGEOUS extravaganza!

Before we continue with our main event, here is a word from our sponsors.


Community Behaviors

I've spoken about this topic in my last article. Plagiarism is a form of fraud that devalues the author's content and the value of HIVE.

  • Please provide references for work that is not your own. This includes text, as well as images.
    • Indications of plagiarism are met with an immediate DV and should be followed by a comment explaining the reason for the DV.
    • The reason for the DV should include the article we suspect is the source of your information.
  • Please do not argue against accusations of plagiarism
    • We're not here to judge you. We're here for great content, but we also have to protect the community.
    • Let's talk about the problem and how it can be resolved and mitigated in the future. Quickly. Neither of us wants this to drag on.

Voting & Engaging

Everyone has the right to upvote or downvote as they choose. So someone could upvote your post by $40 just as likely as they can decide to remove that vote. More often than not, however, there is a reason behind it.

  • If you receive a DV without reason, feel free to ask. If you don't like the answer, move on with your day. Some explanations will be kinder than others.
  • Be courteous to each other. It goes a long way in how people will perceive and treat you.
  • Downvotes, like upvotes, are a part of the system. Use them wisely.

Thank you for reading this special message.

It's just Wednesday here and the list is already long 🧐, I wonder what we are in for by the weekend lol.
Great work @scholaris the team is doing really great and I must say I liked the word for this week cause I have read many outrageous stories and articles lol.

We're hoping it surpasses last week. The more the merrier.

Posted via

Sure! I hope it does too

No, my entry is not there

I missed the tag the first time I posted

I edited it and included the tag but it's not showing as one of the pob-wotw tagged posts

To think that I explained these errors to someone a few days ago, and today, I am a victim of the same mistake is so disheartening😴

Posted via

You’re good. You published your work after my last data pull this morning. I have your entry recorded.

Oh, that's a relief, sir. I appreciate your ability to find things that may probably not be found by others

Thank you very much

It only remains to salute and congratulate all the people of the team and all those who have participated.

There's great participation here. I love the interaction during the contests.

POB WOTW is getting better and amazing!

Great work @scholaris on compiling the entries for the event. Makes it easy to navigate and engage.

Well done and keep up the good work! 🙂

I'm glad it works for you. It makes me proud.

The competition is getting wilder each week (which is something amazing)!

I haven't written my post yet, but I definitely have some ideas.

Posted via

I can't wait to read your entry. I look forward to it.

Posted via

@scholaris thanks for mentioning me. I really enjoy entering any contest on WOTW, although sometimes I write on WOTW it might not be what you want and @calumam lol

Posted via

Not at all. I enjoy reading your work. Your entry becomes my pleasure to read.

Posted via

Lol thanks, I hope you don't mocking me..hahaha..and yeah I can't wait to enter the contest on WOTW next week 🧠

Posted via

Not at all. I look forward to it.

Posted via

I'm with @scholaris here. You can post whatever you feel like, just because there is a merit system there doesn't mean that people have to follow it. Be your own authentic self, don't give a damn what we think.

@tipu curate

Thank you for your support!

Posted via

Oh by the way, thank you very much for the mention.

Posted via

You're very welcome. I started this as a reminder to the community about the contest. People have had a great attitude about participating. I felt it was a great opportunity.

Also, I had concerns when people were complaining about their entries not being included. I thought something like this would be good for morale.

Posted via

I'll have to check out your post!

It would be perfect, my friend

@scholaris, sorry to see you have less Hive Power.
Your level lowered and you are now a Minnow!

May the best writer win.
