Hard to believe we're at the last Power Up Day for 2022! I know I say it all the time, but this month flew by especially fast for me. At the same time though, I was anxiously awaiting the arrival of the first, because I'm in position to make my biggest power up ever for this final month, which will also bring me very close (but not close enough, dang it! 😂) to crossing the threshold for Orca. I've set a goal to be able to make it the rest of the way to welcome in the new year and I'd love to be able to hear other people's goals so we can all celebrate together on January first - so, shout out in the comment section with your Power Up Day goals for next month and let's fucking go! 🎉🥂✨

Now to the business at hand. While technically in my little corner of the world there's still just about 3 hours left of November (I'm posting this a bit after 9pm EST), #HivePUD for December 1st 2022 has already arrived in other parts of the world. If you want a super cool way to check if it's officially in your area according to UTC time (which is how the Hive Buzz badges are determined), be sure to check out the Countdown Timer on the hivebuzz.me site (under the green "Power Up" tab), courtesy of the awesomesauce team at @hivebuzz!

HivePUD TL;DR

  • If you want to qualify for the AMAZING Hive Power Up Day badge(s), your power up must happen during the 24 hours of December 1st 2022 according to UTC time.

and/or

  • If you want to qualify for the #HivePUD prize pool, your power up and post must happen (according to criteria listed below) during the hours of December 1st 2022, your local time.

 

AND PLEASE NOTE:

I did some tweaking of the 4 traditional HivePUD posts a year ago last month, and back in April 2022 I decided to tweak a bit more by combining the usual first two posts (Announcement & Welcome to HivePUD) into this one that I publish around the first few hours of the start of the first each month. In addition, I'll do some extra signal boosting of the "HivePUD is coming" posts done by others instead, as it seems like it will be the best way to spread the word. 😊

And in July 2022, I decided to tweak the rules a bit, for the first time in forever - be sure to check them out below.

Oh and in October, because of the continuing (and awesome) uptick in participation, I tweaked the timeline of the Power Up Day results to give me a couple extra days to put things together after my numbers guy sends me the raw data.
 

Now, for the basic Power Up Day details...

 
 

What is HivePUD?

Hive Power Up Day happens on the first of every month. Those who are able to, take this time to power up some Hive, and/or cancel their power downs and pause trading/selling for the 24 hour span of the day.

If you'd like more in depth information about Power Up Day, please check out this post from July 2021.

 
 

What are the rules to win prizes for HivePUD?

UPDATED As of July 2022

The requirements are:

  1. Your reputation must be above 39 and below 70 and your account must be in good standing with the community.
  2. Your total HIVE Power (before the 1st) must be more than 100 and less than 8000.
  3. You must power up at least 10 Hive on December 1st (and must NOT be powering down).
  4. You must write a post about your power up on December 1st with the tag #HivePUD (International) or #HPUD (Hispanic) as one of your first 5 tags (tagging only in the body of the post doesn't count).

 
To be included in the winners list, you must meet all four requirements above. The order of the list (first place, second place, and so on) will be determined by the biggest PERCENTAGE of Hive powered up, not necessarily the most Hive powered up.

And to make it clear what's changed about the rules, I've bolded the two bits in rules #1 and #3. I think it's pretty self-explanatory why I've added those in, but please feel free to shout out if you any questions about it.

I wanted reach 1500 hp by the end of this year. Today I hit it. Yaaay.

I hope you will become an orca soooooon. Hehe. That is too much for me thinking being an orca at the moment. I wish I may be ome a dolphin by the end of next year.

Sounds amazing! It will be my first Power Up Day today 😍💙

Let's power up and be stronger everybody! I love the first day of month!

Happy "Power Up"⚡️🐝⚡️

Preparing my post and growth for this month.

Thanks for the hard work @traciyork. Successes to all the participants...✨

Congratulations and happy power up day to you 💪 🎉🥰. 103 hive power for me to reach my end of the year power up goal.

As I understand it, if I perform an action now that in utc time it is December 1st, it is counted even though in Cuba it is still November 30th.

Yes, sorry it took so long to reply but it will count as long as it's during the UTC time for the first of the month. 😊

Count me in!!! I am ready to power up, baby!!!

Good luck to everyone!!

Love, love, love, love, love, love, love, !LUV !! 🐬

Now, where is that orca emoji... 🤔

Would you believe there's actually a petition for apps to add an orca? 😂

I did find this one (but not small and cute enough 😂 )...

Bahaha 🤣 Gold!

I went searching for your numbers on Hivebuzz and couldn't quite work out their system for moving is up ranks.

Which number needs to get to what for me to start cling you Orca Darling? (👈 Expected new name for future Traci).

Thanks for getting us informed and ready to power up! My current goal is 1500HP by January 1st, Dolphin by my Hive birthday! 😁 Happy HPUD!!

Thanks for the information, just participated for first time in Hive PowerUP day and going for level 5 Badge 🙂
Might write the post about it later in the day
!PIZZA

oh, is it power-up day already? I thought it was just the second week of November!
anyways, Happy powerup day to everyone!

Talk about being a busy 🐝 Traci, your daily podcast in November and then wham bam straight in to HPUD
Next month I want to have hit 3,000 HP so I shall say Merry HPUD 🎅☃️

Off to a good start myself 😎

A very good start indeed! And if you posted about it with the tag #HivePUD as one of your first five, you'll make the List of Honor! Okay, I just made that name up, but you'd definitely be on the participation list. 😄

I'm proud of my last HivePud of the year. I'm glad I preserved enough to at least get the badge every month, even when I didn't have the time to write a HivePUD post.

Thank you Traci for all of your hard work in the year, and thanks to everyone who read my post and everyone who participates in this event and shares the commitment with us.~

Nice, I'm joining this month.
Already powered up some hive.

The order of the list (first place, second place, and so on) will be determined by the biggest PERCENTAGE of Hive powered up, not necessarily the most Hive powered up.

I didn't understand this point though.

How'd the percentage counted? Is it like how much I'm powering up from my holding?

HPUD! HPUD! HPUD!

I have seen your Orca goal update on Twitter for a few days now.

I can't wait to see how close you'll get with your power up today..... I know you are capable.... Congratulations in advance.

I already have my 10 hive ready for this month Power up and claim my badge.

Happy HPUD @traciyork, let’s do this and make this last one count 🥳🎉🤩😎
I reached dolphin in 11 month. I had set this goal before end of the year and done it 15 November 😊 so happy.

Good luck everybody 👋🏻😊 happy HPUD!

Seeing how long I've been on this chain it's truly remarkable that I haven't done a PowerUp day till now. As a PU virgin, I look forward to posting later today. 😁

Thank you for hosting this awesome event. 👏👏

@tipu curate 2

Trying this again as tipu was "sleeping" last time

I can't tell you how happy I am that I actually finally made it to HivePUDay for the first time in ages AND powered up on the last HivePUDay of the year too!

I really could not do without all of these wonderful, creative, talented and supportive people in this truly incredible and inspiring community of ours and I can't imagine ever intentionally leaving Hive, leaving all of my Hive family...that would be wayyyy to weird...and depressing...

So POWER TO THE HIVE.
POWER TO THE PEOPLE!

Peace out!

Happy Power Up Day 🙌 I got my badge, but unfortunately couldn't get the post ready in time to enter the contest 😢

Congratulations on your near Orca status, it's well deserved :) My goals have pretty much been met, except for 20k comments, and reaching a rep of 70 :)

This post has been manually curated by the VYB curation project

With much love and gratitude I made my Power Up, I hope to be able to make this support every month. I have already done Power Up several times, but I never made it on time for the first day of the month, yesterday I did it!
I feel very happy because now I am a Dolphin, I got a beautiful badge to my blog... Now I will have a happier Christmas. :)
Thank you very much for the motivation, a big hug! @traciyork
