Happy New Month!

Hey everyone! It’s Q here, the mascot of the Your Top 3 Contest and I’m here to announce the next exciting round of our fun monthly HIVE contest!

Things out in the real world have gotten quite serious, but I am here to keep our little contest going to give you all some fun to lighten up the mood! Given that many of you are at home more these days, I hope to see a record number of entries to join in this round 😉.

For the topic this month, I want to peek into your homes to see what your must-have items are to stock up on and make it through lockdown. We all have seen the people rushing to the stores to buy up every roll of toilet paper getting put on the shelves, so I am taking that option off the proverbial shelf for this round. As always, I want you to get creative with your choices!

Do you have a favourite snack you can’t go a day without? A beloved beverage? Perhaps something to keep you occupied and entertained outside of your favourite blockchain? Maybe you’ll hit on some items more specifically related to survival and not just comfort. Whichever direction you go, I am sure you will bring some great picks to our communal stash!

The Topic For This Round Is…Top 3 Lockdown Essentials

How To Enter This Essential 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!

All that leaves me to say is - GOOD LUCK and I look forward to reading your entries!

Your Top 3 Mascot



LOL! Excellent choice, Q!

@tipu curate

Why thank you Queen of the Good Juju... or should that be Queen of the QQ

Q mascot confused.png

Nice! I can definitely work with that... but how to limit it to only 3... I have so many lock down essentials 😂

I'm sure you'll come up with some great choices! Please don't make me upset again though, not after this morning 😄

Clearly no April Fool's.... lol!

Great choice, team.

Thanks Fiona! Looking forward to getting some ideas for my own lockdown supplies reading everyone's suggestions this month 😃

And.... we back! Good to see you again, let the thinking cap come on and begin!

Yeaaaa Joan! Let the games begin!

Of course the toilet paper is the star of the show :D

Haha of course it is (if there's any left on the shelves)! Can't wait to see everyone's choices this time!

Thanks a lot @justclickindiva! I've Q-bobulated your entries in to my spreadsheet and will have the dpoll up and ready for the 19th! 😃

thanks @yourtop3. I gave it a good try; however, I think toilet paper will take the prize this month. People can't seem to stop talking about not finding any. Of course, if you don't have any food as I suggested for my top 3 things you need, you won't require any toilet paper.

Aha, that's why I put toilet paper on the "banned items" list for this contest as it would be the runaway winner! I'll have the dpoll up very shortly with the nominations 😃

Explicame algo ah dices que la entrada es hasta el noveno? o sea hasta eldía 9? Si es asi no me da chance, pero me gusta tu actividad estare en el otro conurso minetras buscare tu comunidad y me suscribire

Hey @zhanavic69! I'm sorry I didn't reply sooner!

Today is the 9th which means you have until the end of today to submit a blog about your top 3 lockdown essentials. Our door is always open if you wanted to join in future contests but we hope you can write something today as we'd love to see what makes your list 😃
