OCD Community Boost Contest S2 #2: Highlighting Hive Motors

in OCD3 years ago (edited)
Authored by @ybanezkim26

And we're back!

We promised that OCD Community Boost Contests will be back because of the overwhelming response of the first round. We started that round on February to increase the number of subscribers and engagement of the communities that are under the incubation program. It was a success, but we had to stop it for a while to redirect our energies to other initiatives. This comeback has been brewing for a while. So, buckle up and ready your entries!

OCD has been at the forefront of supporting different niche communities in Hive. Under the Community Incubation Program, OCD has been helping community leaders and moderators grow their genre-specific communities through focused curation. As observed in the latest update, communities under the program have grown both in number of subscriptions and in engagements within their members. By highlighting great posts by users in a particular community, they are encouraged to level up their game or maintain the quality of their posts.

To further help communities, OCD is now conducting weekly contests! The aim is to increase subscriptions and engagements by highlighting a particular community for a week. All other communities within the incubation program will carry on with the usual curation activities. With the help of community leaders and moderators, we at OCD will focus more on those posts within that highlighted community for a week.

Muchachos miren este nuevo concurso

@epilatero @mclarenf11 @jazzn @cuentacuento

Quizás recuerden alguna experiencia, en lo particular quiero leer la de @francysfiore.

Jajajaja la mía puede ser hasta de terror

Y me quedé esperándolo jajaja

Ups! En 13 horas me dará tiempo de hacerlo? Jajajaja esa historia es muy loca

Interesting proposal, the truth is that who hasn't been stuck in the middle of a trip due to a vehicle breakdown? I think that experience has happened to many of us. I find it fun to write the post and read other users about their experiences.

I just have a question regarding the photos, in my case I have no problem going out on cameras, however, there are anecdotes that occurred with a different vehicle than the one we have now so having the photo of the vehicle at that time is very difficult.

Perhaps it is a generalized doubt for the users of What to do in that case?

I have already thought my anecdote and I'm laughing while I think it hahaha

You can take a picture with your current vehicle and mention that it is your current vehicle, perhaps for a cover. For your anecdote use pictures with their respective sources. Although if you have tools at home or can put together a scene, it would be very interesting and funny.

This contest is amazing. It made me remember an experience i had but i am not a car person. I did not know what was wrong but i waited and it was repaired. Lol

Even if you have been a passenger and have not fixed the problem, you can tell us about your experience. Just remember to follow the rules.

A nice contest!!! Something everyone can easily participate in.

Yes my friend

So since I will be traveling soon, maybe I should start praying my vehicle develops small fault again but not like the last time where the break stopped working and we had to collide with a vehicle to stop.

This is indeed a great contest and I believe that the purpose will be successful indeed @ocd

Great contest, can't wait to share my experience.

I am proud to be a member of your wonderful community!

Que bueno contar con este tipo de concursos aún no he creado para está comunidad, pero es hora de trabajar en ello, gracias es muy estimulante que evalúen y resalten los blog que uno realiza con la mejor intención de compartir un rato ameno que sirve de distracción, reflexión,conocimiento o diversión. Saludos a todos organizadores y participantes.

Greetings thank you. Always proactive in helping everyone.

I have a story, but when you say "original" photos, I have no original photo relevant to the story, from years ago. So, should I not bother to enter or maybe just take an original photo of the sky? (Joke -- clearly, the sky would be irrelevant.)

I am always a little disappointed when preference is given to photos that include me in them because I don't post photos of me on the internet. I think there are enough people here who value privacy and can think of a hundred valid reasons why some people would not want to publish their photo online.

Either way, an exciting idea for a contest!

You can use reference images, with their respective source. We only say we appreciate it if they are the content creator's own images, but not obligatory.

Greetings. He's my entry; 8 Hours On The Road

PS I don't have any original photo of the incident. So I used related sourced images

Excelente iniciativa, para auspiciar a todas las comunidades de la plataforma, sencillamente una actividad para ser aplaudida, que continúe el trabajo en equipo y las ganas de seguir apoyando.

I liked this contest and here I share my participation. I hope you like it. I am grateful for the good work and the great support you provide to this blockchain that is admirable. Greetings. https://ecency.com/hive-102066/@fragozar01/of-a-trip-and-a
