Hive Power Up Month Challenge - Winners List

avatar
(Edited)

The second edition of the Hive Power Up Month challenge is now over.

Once again, this challenge has proven how difficult it is to stay committed for a whole month, even with rules as simple as:

  • a power-up or 100% power-up post every day of the month
  • no power down

To sell or to Power Up?

As you can see in the following graph, we have lost a lot of participants along the way, including the very last few days.

Some made the mistake of not posting or powering up at the right time. Some have published but forgot to activate the 100% HP option. Others simply forgot to participate for a day. And each time the sanction was final: "Sorry, see you next time!"

It must also be admitted that, with the rise in the price of HIVE, the temptation has been great in recent days to sell rather than power up.

This means that for those who have managed to hold on to the end, the badge they will receive will be even more valuable.

Special mention

We would like to give a special mention to @justclickindiva. She missed the PUM badge by two days. That was really close. Hopefully you will finally get the badge next time.

Kudos to those who, while no longer eligible for the PUM badge, told us that they would continue to participate every day until the end, just for fun or to keep the good habit of staying engaged. You're amazing!

And now, the winners list

They are 28 participants to have held out with perfect regularity.
Among them, 15 chose the publication with a 100% HP payout option. The 13 others preferred the power-up way. Some even did both for safety ;)

They will soon receive their "Power Up Month" badge:

Congratulations to @ayleenr, @arcange, @bashadow, @beeber, @cezary-io, @coquicoin, @deepresearch, @definethedollar, @drugelis, @emeka4, @fermionico, @forykw, @hasan1981, @manuvert, @mmckinneyphoto13, @nikolina, @sagesigma, @savvyplayer, @sebbi87, @shinyobjects, @tawadak24, @tdctunes, @tibaire, @traciyork, @ultratrain, @vanje, @wrestlingdesires and @ynwa.andree.

New Power Up Challenges next year!

As always, we were asked if there would be a Power Up Month challenge in December as well.

Once again, we will skip the month as we did after the previous edition.
Several reasons for this:

  • December is a festive month and we are going to organize other challenges.
  • The rules and conditions for Power Up Day and Power Up Month are going to be changed and we want to be able to notify everyone in good time so as not to catch you off guard.

Therefore, see you in January 2022 for the new Power Up Challenges.

Prepare yourself! 2022 will kick off in high gear!


PS: Do not miss the last Power Up Day of 2021, today December 1st!

You can still participate to get your Power Up Day and Power Up Helper badges.
This is a special edition where you can win a one-month delegation of 50,000 Hive Power!

Well done to all those who made it through the whole month. We need more people powering up to make Hive even better.

It's good to know that you were able to keep track of your Hive Engine tokens (such as !WINE in this case)! 😅

I often forget how much !PIZZA, !ALIVE, !PGM, !LOL, !LUV, and the Hive tip token whose command insists to have its own line which is
!BEER
unless the corresponding bot tells me exactly how many times I can still share for the day whenever I use the command. 😅

You might quickly run out of Hive Engine tip tokens to share every day if you tell the token manager to automatically replace your words with tip commands! 😅

Having a lot of Hive Engine tokens not only allows you to tip more tokens per day, but is also generally a good investment! 😏 #NotFinancialAdvice 😅

I didn't even realise this was on, I just powered up because my belief in Hive is even higher than the price :)

Just got a badge on my post and that's what brought me here.

I try not to miss a power up day as I like the badges :) I will add more at the start of next year in hope of another milestone. It's just a bit expensive to actually buy $HIVE, but I can use what I get from some of the games.

I do post most days, but the @exhaust ones are fixed as 50/50. I'm happy enough for others to have a chance at the prizes as I do okay.

Wohoo - I made it! It was tough but really worthwhile seeing my HP grow steadily. I'd recommend Power up month (and power up day!) to anyone!

Congratulations to all the other "winners" and thanks for all the challenges and badges @hivebuzz !

Would be nice to share either a service or a way for people to automate powring up automatically.

I have tried influencing HIVE Keychain, on that... but I think there are way more options around.

Otherwise... I will just share the technical way to do it on @atexoras...

PS... the badge is for 31 days...but some months only have 30 =) Some even 28... or 29. Does not help... I know. Science should make universal time rotation so we all have the same clock. No more timezones please!!! we are on the same planet!!!

Would not be fun 😒

PS... the badge is for 31 days...

No, the badge is for the month, and a month is usually represented as "31 days".
It would be cumbersome to manage a different badge for each exception 😅

Thanks for hosting the November 2021 Hive Power Up Month Challenge! 😊

If ever I win the 50,000 Hive Power delegation for 1 month, I will make sure I claim as many Account Creation Tokens as I can before the delegation expires, because creating a new Hive account by burning HIVE is so expensive! 😅

Yay!!! I have made it! Congratulation to all that have made it to complete this month PUM.

By the way, I have questions,

  1. Do delegation considered power down?
  2. If I do schedule post does it count for daily post?

Thank you so much. @hivebuzz !PIZZA

Congrats @tawadak24, you made the list 👍

Do delegation considered power down?

No, delegation is different from a powerdown. You still own your HP and the timings are very different.

If I do schedule post does it count for daily post?

The blockchain is scheduling agnostic. So we are.
The only thing that matters is when the post is added to the blockchain.

I have to admit it was a little bit of a struggle towards the end of the month with all the internet problems I had but I'm glad I made it! Special thanks to my friend for allowing me to stop by her place to use internet and free internet spots in the city - without them I wouldn't make it! 😃😂

Thank you for participating in the PUD @phendx. 💪🐝

Writing a post is not required for the PUD badge but if you want to be eligible for the 50K HP delegation, better to write a post.

Ah that explains it a lot better, thanks! I think that's really cool, I didn't know about it but might give it a try one of these months! With January being the crazy airdrop month, I don't know if I want to miss out on having some liquidity available to make some moves! No powering down though, that's for sure :D

Woohoo! This was a great month-long challenge. I'm going to admire my shiny new badge. I enjoyed seeing my Hive Power go up each day and your reminder posts were so encouraging. Thank you for the challenge. I look forward to the next one in January. !LUV

I was just devastated to learn that I missed two days.

After that, I couldn't wrap my head around how this happened when I thought I was so careful. Anyway, there's always next month, hopefully.

Thanks @hivebuzz for the SPECIAL MENTION. Is there a badge for ALMOST MADE IT?

Some people say the feeling is worse when you missed just one day rather than two (or more) days! 😅

Hello. You're right. But it felt the same to me, especially after realizing a few days ago the system said I missed 2 days. I was so puzzled, but more hurt because I was keeping close tabs on it. I think I fell apart when I saw it and just went into two-minute cursing spree. After that tirade, I calmed down and resumed whatever it was I was doing. :)

Thanks for coming by and leaving me a slice of pizza. It helps. I just need to get me a Diet Peach Snapple to go with it.

Take care.

Haha, i'm not scared =) just think they are pretty basic and fair as is. Theres certainly no need to make it watered down when the only real appeal to it is the challenge to stay on it. The endless mentality now in days that everyone deserves everything regardless of effort now in days just gets worse and worse.

But one way to change it that wouldn't take anything rm anyone and would make it more functional overall would be to (level it) kinda like the bee for power up day. So level 5 being all days of that month, level 4 being (all days in month -1) .... down to level 1 (all days in month - 4). -5 and beyond imo didn't care to try and can try again next month

Anyhow sorry for the rant but at least its a functional rant that comes with a suggestion lol

Congratulations @hivebuzz! You received a personal badge!

You powered-up at least 100 HP on Hive Power Up Day! This entitles you to a level 3 badge
Participate in the next Power Up Day and try to power-up more HIVE to get a bigger Power-Bee.
May the Hive Power be with you!

After reading this I was really challenged to do power up every day in December, even though I was still a small fish. The question is, can I still start today?
