If you can remember Monday (I sometimes struggle remembering back that far), we started a contest that you could win a product from our store (read about it here). Like wacky Al down at the car lot having contests and giveaways and going bankrupt in the process, we are doing the same!
Every Saturday, we will have a contest to locate and find the best Buzz from the previous week!
Do you think your Buzz is the best? Do you think someone else's Buzz is worthy of the gold medal? We want to find that diamond in the rough, polish it up, and mount it in the 14 karat gold diamond ring that is our Saturday segment, "The Golden Buzz Award"!
So how does this Golden Buzz contest work?
Post a link to a Buzz from the previous week in the comments below (Last Saturday to this Saturday) that you feel is the best. If it's a picture of your gym socks or a haiku composed flawlessly from a friend or just a "WTF" posted at the opportune time, these can all be contenders for the golden Buzz. It just needs to be a Buzz posted on D.Buzz.
We will then give this contest seven days to run, and whichever comment below gets the most votes (Not value, but Vote Counts) wins.
This contest is all well and good, but what did they win? Glad you asked Johnny, let's show them what's behind door number one!!
- The honor and respect of winning the golden buzz for the week!
- It may be printed out and hung on the wall in our office.
- And of course a cash prize of (Well not cash, but a HIVE Payment of 25 Hive)
- And A NEW CAR! (hahaha no no no no.. This last part is a joke.. but I've always wanted to say that)
If you post someone else's Buzz you feel is worthy of the Golden Buzz Award for the week and this is the winning comment, The original author (the Creator) will get 75% of the prize, and you will get 25% (the Curator)
A Curator and Creator could potentially both post a nomination to their Buzz. The winner is, however, chosen by whichever COMMENT receives the most votes. See point (1) above about payout for Curator vs. Creator.
People can nominate the same Buzz, but again, it's the number of upvotes (not the value of upvotes) that determines the winner. So you can vote with an upvote value of 1% on many buzzes you feel is best. Or, I guess you could make an army of fake accounts and upvote your nomination..., but if you did this, you'd be a D#@k.
In the case of a tie. Both curators will fight to the death with swords over a pit of ravenous llamas. Winner takes all, no holds bar Battle Royale!!! Sadly, that is a joke as well... we will have an AI randomly select the winner (Lame, but our legal team says it's the way we do it).
With the contest in place and the rules laid out sort of clear but more I would say "murky" at best, it's my pleasure to say "Let the games begin"!
Seven days... starting ... ... ... NOW. GO!
