Introducing the Monthly Engagement & Promotion Contests on the FreeCompliments Community!

in FreeCompliments3 months ago

We’re introducing two new contests to help increase engagement and onboarding to the FreeCompliments community! Each contest will award 5 HSBI, 1000 Ecency points, and 5 DVS to the winner. Thank you to @wongi and @goodysam for sharing these ideas – you will permanently be beneficiaries every time this pair of contests is run.

Monthly Engagement Contest

This contest will examine the total quantity and quality of posts, comments, and threads contributed by a member over the course of a given month. In order to do this, we will look at our accounting of each of these pieces of engagement and tally up the total, take into account the amount of words that are present in an average piece of engagement (approximately), and finally consider the quality of this engagement. The individual with the highest total will win the engagement contest. While there is some subjective aspect to this, for the most part we should be able to delineate who provided the most engagement.

Comments that solely consist of calls to curate 2nd layer tokens will be discounted from the tally (I’m mentioning this because we’ve had an increasing number of these lately, and they don’t engage the content itself).

Monthly Promotion Contest

This contest is more direct and purely objective: whichever user brings in the most new members into the community will win the contest. We must be able to determine that the people were brought in by you, so if this is the case, then please ask the person whom you referred to let me know about it by tagging me.

In case of a tie, we would split the prize evenly.

As we already have a community ambassador / promotional compliment writer, he would not qualify for this contest.


These are two new contests intended to increase quality engagement and spread the word about the FreeCompliments Community.

What do you think of these contests and associated rewards? Are there are any other contests you would recommend?

I would love to hear any and all opinions about these topics from everyone who is currently a member of FreeCompliments, since you’re all inaugural members! Anyone else who finds this page is also very welcome to voice their opinion. We’re all about free speech, and everyone’s experience has value.

Thank you so much @adysscheryl for the Ecency Point contribution! It'll go straight to hive-140084. I'll send you some HSBI in return. 😊

Please don't send anything
I don't know what to do with HSBI



Ha, too late! 😈

HSBI basically accumulates a reward over time and distributes it as a vote on your posts. There's nothing for you to do except enjoy the permanent votes as long as you keep posting.

but where do I find it cause am going away . Still powering down
So I can see if I have enough to give someone

Why are you leaving hive?

Am not supposed to be making $.
It not that i don't believe in it.
It was good to learn that there are wonderful people
It not cause I have ill feelings

Its up to you to decide, maybe you come back one day 🙂 so simply save your keys

I'm a bot, if you want a hand ask @ zottone444

"Comments that solely consist of calls to curate 2nd layer tokens will be discounted from the tally". I can understand this point and these types of comments can seem/ be spammy.

Please keep in mind however ,that not everyone is able-bodied. As someone who suffers from cognitive and energy impairments sometimes I only have energy to type simple bot commands or just click the upvote button. It doesn't mean I do not want to engage, just that this is the only engagement at the time I am able to do. Typing even a comment of this length for some folks is very taxing and very high effort.

That's a great point. I'm already aware of Spoonies, along with some other folks who fit the bill but aren't in your community yet, so I can certainly make exception to those. I can also see who's been consistently contributing to Hive vs. those who are primarily using it solely for self-profiting reasons (which is ok by me). Additionally, the majority of users are able-bodied, so for the most part I should be able to differentiate.

It is a good thing to keep in mind, however. I'll keep special watch for those who are in your community or make clear / imply that they're disabled for the purpose of this contest.

My other monthly rewards do still consider all comments (including the bot calls).

Excellent man. You rock :)

Great one
Good suggestion

I have some spare ecency points on my main account. I'd love to donate a couple thousand if that would be helpful.

Please keep them for your charitable cause! There are plenty of posts and comments that can be boosted for the community you're trying to reach.


Did you hear about the Irish guy who was assasinated at the antique store?
It was a knick knack paddywhack!

I'd never heard of the FreeCompliments community before, but I'm happy to know that you exist, and what you're doing! Cool idea, and wonderful prizes! 😁 🙏 💚 ✨ 🤙

Let’s hope more and more people will find the community and join in 😊
It’s great to have contests…
Have a wonderful Thursday!

Hopefully a good way to bring awareness from "content creating only" into the comment and engaging section.

Maybe its only me, but somehow I must really concentrate to read and understand your announcement posts 🤔 dontknow why

Hmm, are the words that I'm using too complicated? I've been told that I sometimes use more complex words in writing than I do in speech.

Probably its only my English wich still is not the very best when it comes to longer complex Textes 🙂 dont worry

Keep up with the good work 🥰
But am not seeing topic to join the contest

There's no specific topic! For engaging, just make comments, posts, and threads. For promoting, just get people to join in here. Everything that involved the community counts.

Oh I understand better
Thanks 🙏

That's very thoughtful of you . It's a nice suggestion . Keep it up.

Your creativity is on another level. You are doing great

Thanks 😊


It grows it glows!! Nice suggestions! ❤️

Good prizes and I love contests!

Contests are amazing! I love them very much😅. These are really nice ways to get the community busy. You're amazing.

Contests are always a great idea.
Increasing meaningful engagement is always beneficial. Your prizes are awesome, the DVS tokens is pure genius and will be welcomed by someone.

Good luck everyone.


Very nice !hiqvote !PIMP

You must be killin' it out here!
@dynamicrypto just slapped you with 1.000 PIMP, @freecompliments.
You earned 1.000 PIMP for the strong hand.
They're getting a workout and slapped 1/3 possible people today.

Great prizes! Will there be seperate posts for each contest/w rules that I can include in the Ecency discord contest channel?


Just this post alone!

The rules are super stringent and overly complicated: no illegal content / spam / plagiarism. 😉

I'll put it in Ecency Discord contest channel. A suggestion. You may want to consider a different image for your contest posts, simply to differentiate them from other community posts. They might get more attention.

Appreciate it! I actually put it there already, haha.

That's an interesting and practical idea! Something with a big ol' "CONTEST" label. I'll see what I can come up with.

@dynamicrypto, the HiQ Smart Bot has recognized your request (1/2) and will start the voting trail.

In addition, @freecompliments gets !PIZZA from @hiq.redaktion.

For further questions, check out or join our Discord. And don't forget to vote HiQs fucking Witness! 😻

Now, this is amazing, another great way to help grow the community, and the prizes are quite tempting,😅

Grabbing the winner's medal requires being at the top of your games. Hahaha.
Let's see how it goes.
