Balance Adjustment & Contest Changes



  • Entertainment grading base and points assigned

Grading base update:

0: Dull (A post that does not invoke any emotional response i.e. happiness, nostalgia, sadness, etc)

1: Average (A mildly entertaining post. There is some conscious effort to make the post interesting either through pictorial representation or storytelling)

2: Brilliant (A very sensual post that engages the audience senses; invokes strong emotional responses)


  • Formatting grading base adjusted

Grading base update:

2: There may be formatting issues in the article that distracts the reader, but it is minimal. Examples: Pasting website links within a passage without using markdown language, large passages of text which overwhelm the reader (this includes articles with sufficient spacing between text bodies).


  • Overkill deduction grading altered (Feedback will specify the deduction)

Grading base update:

-1: Overwhelming Text (The article has large segments of text which overwhelm the reader)

-1: Convoluted (The article confuses the reader with multiple perspectives)

-1: Unnecessary Mixture (The article mixes multiple elements of artistry and information with little substance or sense)


Feedback from anyone and everyone is always welcomed.

This week, I have nothing notable to say except that myself, @shubhwaj, and @revise.pob have discussed a shorter duration for season two. This will likely be seven weeks long with a one week break for the results and downtime (need to give our brains a break every now and then!).

Also, authors who are disqualified for tag spamming will still have their posts related to the word graded. This will show up on the leaderboard for now but it will be adjusted so the points aren't added to the season totals. This affected @crismanto and @ageste's scores this week.

Anyway, time to zoom off. Keep up the quality, and don't forget that consistency is the aim of the game. Enjoy the week ahead.

PS. engagement reward system is well underway; get some practice in.

This is incredible!) I can't believe it! Pinch me!))

Second win in a row...that's a real Eureka!) I'm about to burst with excitement and admiration) My hypersensitivity will make me run naked down the street like Archimedes))

Thank you so much...the level of the contest was very high this time, there were many wonderful, interesting, worthy articles, and honestly, I wasn't sure of the success. So it's doubly nice)

My heartfelt thanks to @calumam, all the helpers and curators of the contest. Participating in it is the most exciting and creative thing in my life lately.

Congratulations to all the winners, and I wish all participants good luck and success in future rounds!

Please, send us some pictures of you when you run off the street, so we can save it and probably make a meme, or gif or NFT out of them 🤣🤣🤣🤣

Congratulations to you, sir


Posted via proofofbrain.io

Thank you) But I have to disappoint you..I ran so fast, and it was so unexpected for people on the street that no one was able to capture my run)) ..
So, let's try to find the Causality for the next race in a week ;))


Posted via proofofbrain.io

Congrats! You deserved @alekst7


Posted via proofofbrain.io

Thank you, it's nice to hear that from you)


Posted via proofofbrain.io

ha ha love this @edystringz.


Posted via proofofbrain.io

Such a joy to read. I'm chuffed to hear about how much you value the contest. Comments like this give motivation like nothing else.

Many congratulations to all the winners and participants. Engagement has definitely racked up much more than before. Which is a good sign for wotw. I hope this keeps on just growing and making people stretch their thinking horizons and providing an opportunity to hone their craft.

Again, no trophy for me this time 😭, but I am at peace as the appreciation I get is invaluable 🙂. And I am grateful to everyone for taking their time to read my rants. And also wotw team judging them with such a diverse and elaborative scale.


Posted via proofofbrain.io

Strong meaningful engagement is where it's at. No point in forcing something just for the sake of it!

but I am at peace as the appreciation I get is invaluable

I'm glad to hear that. There is extra feedback on the public sheet from time to time for extra thoughts. When we get more settled into the grading and some more tweaking is done to improve the process, we will likely increase the level of feedback shared.

am grateful to everyone for taking their time to read my rants

You and me both, lol.

Super stoked! Thank you so much @calumam and the entire WOTW team. Your efforts to promote community engagement and push us each week to improve our writing, often outside our comfort zones, are so very much appreciated. This was a very, very nice surprise after an incredibly tough week on a personal front. Congrats to everyone who took part, with special congrats to @alekst7. You are setting the bar high @alekst7 and I love it! :-) The level of engagement is also fantastic in this WOTW contest. Tonight, I'll be enjoying reading through more Eureka! moments as I didn't get the chance to do much curation and reading this week; feeling a bit deprived lol. I have opened my NFT and it is B-eautiful! So excited, and so pleased that my characters took me on the journey that they did :-)

This was a very, very nice surprise after an incredibly tough week on a personal front.

Nice to hear that the win added a little brightness to the end of your week (or the start of the coming week, or both!).

Don't shill the WOTW too hard, we might end up taking our foot off the gas ;)


Posted via proofofbrain.io

Learning about new and wonderful words each week has been a huge task, an educational task and I am happy to be a part of this institution


Posted via proofofbrain.io

My! Congratulations to everyone. The WOTW has been really exciting and the number of entries has been humongous, @mineopoly, that was a stunning entry.

Imagine what it's going to be like when we reach 200 entries a week.. gon be nutty!


Posted via proofofbrain.io

It's probably going to be more tasking and challenging on your part by that time, but then it'll be exciting.

Erhm any news and redeeming the prices for last week wins? I'll like to activate mine


Posted via proofofbrain.io

Redeem them whenever you like buddy, drop a comment on the redemption post if you can.

Yeah, just did that.

Cheers @josediccus,

It's been a long week and me here brainstorming ideas for casualties. Now I am one.

Now that's my kind of word!

btw for the record I didn't suggest seasons because I always seem to finish sixth!

I am happy to be on the reward table. I need to do better in the next contest. I will need someone enlighten me more on what is expected on this community. Many of us like me still find it hard to navigate and comprehend things. Someone should come to our aid.

Thank you house
