It's that time of the week again. The brains are in cooldown mode and are ready to whir back up for the upcoming week.
I've noticed a bunch of new faces appearing in POB and showing off their skills here in the Word of the Week. This has helped raise the #pob-wotw tag to #6 on the Proof Of Brain tag list! Nice.
As usual, there is more information to follow surrounding some changes this week, but for now, let us see who has taken the podium...
First Place: @corporateay (200 POB)
Second Place: @pialejoana (150 POB)
Third Place: @reverendrum (100 POB)
Fourth Place: @paulo.sar (75 POB)
Fifth Place: @alfarero (50 POB)
Merit System Results
@scholaris started assisting me on Friday and will be continuing to grade the posts with me in the future. His assigned points are in blue.
- No updates this week, there will be a handful of changes next Sunday instead. We're working on developing some Grading Bases to provide some context behind the scores.
Feedback from anyone and everyone is always welcomed.
Each week winners will receive a POB delegation that will remain on their accounts (more or less) indefinitely.
Accounts that use the delegations in a productive way and assist with the growth of the platform will have the delegation converted into a solid POB stake (details still to be confirmed).
I'm still developing a system to monitor and assess how the delegation is used so I can know if and when they should be removed (abuse etc).

We have a new word each week that members of the community can share their thoughts about in a post.

The guidelines for entry to the contest are as follows;

- Engagement is heavily encouraged
- Entries must be posted before 00:00 UTC on 06/06/21
- Posts must clearly demonstrate what the weekly word is

The word for this week is Ego

2nd place - 200 POB
3rd place - 150 POB
4th place - 100 POB

Prizes may vary over time dependant on support and curation rewards. Entries and comments in pob-wotw will receive upvotes based on authenticity and sincerity.
As I mentioned above, @scholaris has been assisting me with the grading and development of the Merit System. He's done a brilliant job so far during the short time he's been behind the wheel. Here are few things that sprung to mind that I'll share with everyone;
He removed himself from the competition straight away before the topic was even brought up.
He's added feedback to individual grades (we're working towards this kind of feedback being readily available to all, I may be able to make a public copy at the end of each week).
He's started creating Grading Bases for each category so there is a better understanding of how we're allocating points (this will be shared with all participants).
I was always concerned about delegating out some responsibility with regards to the Merit System, but I'm very impressed with how @scholaris has taken it onboard. Please share any thoughts or concerns you may have below in the comments, or better yet, drop a thank you (not sure if this post would be here right now if I didn't get the help towards the end of the week).
I'm planning to send @scholaris 100-150 POB per week (dependant on input) for his efforts.
A little line about myself; I've been away from home for almost a week, seeing a friend (the weather is absolutely glorious, loving life). I'll be back behind the wheel on Wednesday and back to my usual routine.
My previous post has had some fantastic responses and I apologise for not replying like I usually do. I will get round to this, just maybe not until later next week. Maybe it's worked out for the best, it's not an easy topic to digest and understand in one sitting.
Anyway, good luck to all with this week's word. I'll see you in the comments from Wednesday onwards.
