Your Top 3 Monthly Contest July 2020 - Who Are Your Favourite Lead Singers?

Happy New Month!

Hey everyone! It’s Q here, or should I say Freddie Mer-Q-ry, the lead mascot of the Your Top 3 Contest and I’m here to announce the next exciting round of our fun monthly HIVE contest!

This round I’m asking you to peruse your personal music collection and share your favourite lead singers. I’m not just looking for your favourite bands, but the actual frontman or woman who makes you want to sing along every time a song comes on. Or maybe you shush everyone in the room to listen and not spoil the perfect melody. Perhaps this singer fronts a band you don’t even particularly enjoy, but you adore his or her voice. It’s all about the vocals for this month!

Any genre of music is game, I just ask this round you try to stick with singers that were part of a band for at least some of their career as I may just sneak in a round for solo artists sometime in the future...There may even be a few possible artists sharing their work on your favourite decentralized blockchain you may want to nominate 😉

How To Enter This Sing-along Contest

1 - Create a blog post with your top 3 nominations along with your reasoning behind them. Entry posts must have:

  • A minimum of 250 words total and
  • The #yourtop3 tag MUST be in the first 5 tags used
  • The deadline for submitting entries is the 9th

2 - Put a link to your blog in the comments section of this blog.

3 - Set your post payout to 50/50. You keep the HP and then transfer the HIVE and/or HBD (whichever is paid out at the time) to @yourtop3 with a link to your blog post entry in the transfer memo. This is the minimum entry fee, but you can add as much as you like to it! The more you add, the more you can win.There is no maximum entry fee.

You must send your entry fee in by the 19th of the month, otherwise you won’t qualify for the final standings for the month and won’t get credit for the entry for the league standings either and that would make me very sad - don’t make me sad...

Not sure how to find your post payout? Look in your Hive Wallet under Author Rewards to find the exact payout for your post. In the example below you would send the 0.011 HBD and 6.441 HIVE over to the @yourtop3 account as your entry fee. I’ll take it from there and convert all of the prize pool to HBD for easy prize distribution at the end of the month!

Creating Your Entry Post

You are welcome to create your own post but for your convenience I have created two different templates. The first one; a more complex version, contains some markdown/html coding creating a nice table for you to edit. The second template; for those of you not familiar with markdown/html coding, is a simpler version. In both templates, I’ve highlighted in red text where you need to edit.

  • The table version can be found here

  • The basic version can be found here

How detailed you want to go is up to you but I know you can do better than “because I like it” 😉

I have allowed our Panel members to create their own post with their own suggestions but these will NOT be entered into the contest - I forbid it! Instead the Panel’s post payouts will be used to add to the prize pool for bigger prizes.

What Happens Next?

I will first review all submissions for eligibility.

Then all submissions will be put into a public dpoll.

Once the dpoll is complete, I’ll review the results and combine them with my patented scoring system before dishing out the prizes to the top 3!

So can we talk about/pick lead singers that also had solo careers? #justasking

Yes. I have decided that as long as your nominations have been a lead singer of a band at some point, then it's all good. 😁

Love Q
