Feedback from the October 1st Hive Power Up Day

in #hivebuzz3 years ago

The October 1st edition of the Hive Power Up Day was both good and bad.

Good because the number of participants has remained fairly stable, even better than the previous edition. Add to this that we have just finished a funny but long and stressful Power Up Month Challenge (you can read the results of the challenge here) and still had that many participants.

Bad because it is the worst score in terms of the amount of HIVE powered up on Power Up Day.

That being said, the most important thing for us is how many people have fun participating. So in a way, our goal is achieved.

A few words from the PUD organizers


Happy October everyone!

Last month I mentioned how much chatter there was about Power Up Day and it turned out that we did end up having more participants even though the overall total powered up was lower. This month I was a bit preoccupied doing my Love Sniper and PoSH curation stuff for OCD all day Friday, and wasn't able to keep a super close eye on how things were going on Twitter and onchain (plus, seems like the nodes were being a bit grumpy again).

However, just based on all the people I saw talking about it in the days leading up to today, I think we're going to have another great month like September - lots of Hiveans joining in, even if the total doesn't break any records.

It's also been lots of fun watching the progress of the first ever Hive Power Up Month, put together by the Hive Buzz team (even if I had to watch through tears since I messed up I think that had a great deal to do with getting people excited to power up (even if it wasn't on the first) so I can't wait to see what all the numbers say.

And as always, a big THANK YOU to everyone who participated in Power Up Day by powering up, posting, and/or shouting out on all traditional web 2.0 social media. All of those things help shine a light on our blockchain home, which in turn helps to grow our community. Special thanks to @hivebuzz for always BEEing such an incredible buzz-maker for Hive Power Up Day. And here's to all the happy Hiveans who are increasing their voting power and influence on the blockchain!

What are the PUD stats of this month?

Before going straight to the volume and participant stats, let's start first with those who choose to help others grow, the Power Up Helpers as those are the ones who deserve the most attention.

We have 17 users who have made a power-up to another account and have thus allowed 21 people to get their PUD badge.

Special kudos to those who helped several accounts: @dreamingirwin (7), @traciyork (4), @pegarissimo §2) and @jacobtothe (2).
Together, the helpers gifted 240.533 HIVE!

Here is the complete list of helpers and their donation:
@traciyork (33.33), @qwerrie (20.20), @cmplxty (20), @steevc (20), @tattoodjay (20), @dawnoner (15), @pegarissimo (11), @seryi13 (11), @chacald.dcymt (10), @chisdealhd (10), @hiveupme (10), @maonx (10), @marcurio (10), @menzo (10), @muscara (10), @tdctunes (10) and @trippymane (10)

A huge thank you to them all for their generosity! Show them some love by upvoting one of their recent posts.

We now have 156 users who helped at least one less powerful user who never got any power-up from anyone. These benefactors got the so coveted Power Up Helper badge:

(List by number of helpees)

Remember that the number of people you are helping will significantly influence the delegations we will do to you.

Let's now take a look at how you did against the previous editions:

Let's be honest: this is the worst edition in terms of volume of HIVE powered-up, barely 51899 HIVE. The recent bear run that we have endured is very likely to have something to do with this.

Another factor may also be the fact that several users participated in the Power Up Month Challenge the previous month and may have found themselves running out of HIVE on the 1st. On this subject, you can read the results of the PUM challenge in this post

However, what is quite pleasing is to note that the number of participants remains stable and has even increased compared to the previous edition with 393 users who still performed a power-up.

Let's now look at what happened with the distribution of power-ups:

Congrats to @kryptodenno (5203,767), @tdctunes (3027,478), @vanje (1691), @hansgans (1386,669), @walterjay (1130), @schlunior (1120,65), @ewkaw (1100), @hatoto (1100), @pouchon (1016,735), @primersion (1001,218), @deepresearch (1001), @tattoodjay (1000) and @tarazkp (1000).

They powered up at least 1000 HIVE and got the Jumbo-Bee badge.

Hive Power delegations

Since the beginning of this year, we are rewarding regular participants and those who have also been generous in helping others by offering a 3 weeks Hive Power delegation.
To be eligible for a delegation:

  • you must have participated in this Power Up Day.
  • You must have performed at least 5 power-ups on Power Up Day. Power-up received from another user is not taken into account.
  • 4 of these 5 power-ups must have been done on the last 5 Power Up Days (including this one).

To compute the amount of HP delegated to each user, we use the following criteria:

  • The number of power-ups performed.
  • The number and levels of power-ups you have performed (ex: you made two "level 3" and three "level 5" power-ups).
  • The number of people you helped to power up and the amount involved.

This month we will delegate 5357 HP to 118 users

UserDelegated HP

Congratulations to all of you and enjoy our delegation!

See you on November 1st for the next PUD!

I read the entire post with unflagging interest. I become an information maniac and have been waiting for news on this topic all month .... I can hardly wait. Doctor, what's happening to me ?? (I actually love challenges, and this is one of my favorites.)
Thanks for the delegation, and see you all next month the fatter bees!

Wonderful job everyone!

Thanks for the mention! It felt good helping @asteel with 10HP, even if it's not much 😅

And thanks for the delegation, I did delegate 30HP to @theterminal as they were the first to point me in the right directions here on the Hive block chain and you are about to delegate me 30 HP now 😋 wonderful, I guess you seed around and it comes back to you 😎

@theterminal I'll be forever grateful for all the help offered! Thanks guys you're amazing!

@hivebuzz Thanks for all the support and keep up the good work!

For my next delegation I'm thinking to delegate 50HP to @ocd 😎 Wonderful job you guys doing on the blockchain! Respect 😎

Thank you for participating in the PUD and helping @asteel.
Any help is always appreciated by whoever receives it, regardless of size. 😑
Enjoy our delegation.

Hello, sorry, just to check, was I meant to get 30HP delegation for this month?

Just asking because I don't think I received any, so I'm wondering if maybe I got confused and I wasn't meant to get it.

It's ok no trouble at all :) I just wanted to check, Thanks

Wish you a great day 😎

You're right, looks like there were some hiccups in our delegation process. It's been fixed now.
Have a great day too.

Brilliant! Got them now!

Thanks again for the delegation and Go Hive 😎💯

Excellent! Congratulations on this helper's badge. Theere is more happiness in giving than in receiving. I had not helped anyone because I had no idea that you could power up someone else, but next month I could help someone who is unable to do so.

Congratulations again, you are doing great!

Thanks bro! I just miss the time to be more active and write more :(

I wish I could quit my day job and get some time back ahahah

Thanks again and it makes me happy to know that I "taught" you something here ahahhaa that's precious lol (ahah I'm joking obviously 😜)

Have a great evening! 😎

It felt good helping @asteel with 10HP

no, it is much, and does help! you always may delegate a bit for the users you feel may contribute good content for the blockchain. (too much at once is no good too - they have to use to stand on their own feet, ehehe... and easy come - easy go, easy support may convert them, make too demanding, if you understand what I mean. ) -- !ENGAGE 20 and !PIZZA for you

@trippymane! I sent you a slice of $PIZZA on behalf of @qwerrie.

Ahah yes I understand 😁

Thank you for the feedback and for the tip!

There has already been too much ENGAGE today.

Congrats, everyone!

I'd be happy to donate some hive next time to help someone. How does that work exactly? Do I donate that to you or is there a list of needy newbies who need help?

That would be great @dbooster 👍
You can read this post to find information on how to get the Power Up Helper badge.
It's up to you to find the one(s) you want to help.

thanks, so much for the delegation means a lot to me , you are really doing great by encouraging the users who are powering up. congrats to all the other 117 users who got the delegations.


Thank you for participating in the PUD @bhattg. 💪🐝

Even if amounts are down I still think it's worth continuing to push the idea of powering up. It improves the Hive experience as more people influence the rewards. Congrats to all who took part.

Thank you @steevc. See you next month

I'm one of those who powered up less because of the PUM challenge, and the worst thing is that I couldn't even last the whole month... I wonder how many days I have missed, it should be around 5-7. Did you keep track of all the users?

It's cool that you were able to participate in the PUD despite everything, even after that long PUM @ahmadmanga
FYI, you missed powering up on the following days: 8, 10, 21, 22, 23, 26 and 29. So your PUM score is something like 23/30 😉

Thanks for showing me my record! Missing only 7 days isn't so bad now I think about it.

Hopefully you won't miss any at the next PUM 😅

congratulations, helping other users is a great way to grow everyone.

Thank you @astrocreator

Congratulations to all, a pleasure to have participated, I had in mind to do it since last month but I had not understood very well how it worked haha, but this month I informed me a little better, I'm happy with my badge 💛.

Glad to read you succeeded this month @seryi13. See you on November 1st

Hello @hivebuzz. Thank you so much for the delegation. I appreciate it. I wasn't able to power up as much this month due to several obligations and investments I'm attempting to work my way through.

I started the PUM in September. However, I got mixed up with my days. I'm restarting it for October and hope to complete it.

I appreciate your support each month.

Take care.

Thank you for participating in the PUD with as much HIVE as you can, @justclickindiva.
FYI, we did a pause with the PUM (more about it in this post), but this does not prevent you to challenge yourself. 😀

this routine... indeed it was a hard one! 30 HIVE were not a problem, but the curriculum, and not letting go inbetween mundane activity about this. I was VERY close 2-3 times to up myself :)))

At least you stayed the course and got it done. Well done. Congratulations!

Yes, it was hard for me simply because I didn't want to go 100% HP on all my posts. There one contest I enter each week that required 50/50 split. Remembering to go back and change it was a challenge.

I'll save up for October during the break and participate in November.

What I will do is power up 1 Hive when I first get online to start my day.

What I will do is power up 1 Hive when I first get online to start my day.

uh, that was exactly what I did. I was unsure if I will have 30 HIVE for all 30 days AND 100 HIVE by the end of the marathon (that was my plan) - but happily, I came with 125 liquid tokens... all of my posts were 50-50, I powered up 1 HP each day - this is the hardest part, imo... to keep all the routine and dont step out of the pattern. may I treat you with a little mushroom !PIZZA as a small consolation? and ofc, I wish you luck in October!

@justclickindiva! I sent you a slice of $PIZZA on behalf of @qwerrie.

Learn more about $PIZZA Token at (2/10)

Much appreciated.

Thank you so much. LUV, LUV, LUV, Mushroom Pizza.

And here's something for you for feeling my pain

Don't forget. NO OCTOBER. Taking a break I read. Next one November







@qwerrie, you've been given LUV from @justclickindiva.

Check the LUV in your H-E wallet. (3/10)

Hmmm... I've powered up two individuals this month.

Thanks a lot for badges, pleasure to help and to participate! <3

Thank you for participating in the PUD and helping others @marcurio.

Thank you for this report. Even though the amount was lower I am glad that the number of participants was better.

Thank you for the delegation. I highly appreciate it.

Looking forward to building again towards the next PUD!

You're welcome @jacoalberts, thanks for your nice energy and your message! It's always a pleasure to read from you 😊👍

We are glad to see so much enthusiasm! We wish you a nice day.

That's very nice. Thank you very much!

You're welcome @thomasthewolf. Thank you for participating in the PUD and enjoy our delegation.

Congratulations to everyone! İt was a funny moments, when we do hive power.

Thank you for participating in the PUD @tibaire. Enjoy our delegation.

Thank you very much!!!!

Our pleasure 🌹

Congratulations to all, a pleasure to have participated. 💪🏼🚀🐝

Thank you for participating in the PUD @chacald.dcymt. See you next month.

It's simply great to participate. I start collecting hive from the 2nd of the month already for the next power up, let's see how it goes. I didn't know that you could help someone to make power up, next month I will try it too.

All these stats are great. Although it is bad about the amount in HIVE, but it is really good that more people have been encouraged to participate in the PUB. Thanks for sharing this data with us.

Best regards!

Great to read you want to help others (and get the Power Up Helper badge) @gaboamc2393.
See you next month (can be in the PUB too 🤣)

My first power up day and super happy to have taken part and powered up - will definitely be powering up on the next one too!


💪🏻 @kryptodenno & @hatoto ihr habt beide echt ordentlich aufgepowert! Super! 🐝

Congratulations to all who joined the fun♥️

I chose to sit this one out, in favor of collecting more Hive to hopefully make the top 20 next month :)


Thank you so much @hivebuzz, really appreciate the delegation and the encouragement! Kudos to all the generous helpers!
