Any Ideas? & Update

in travelphotocontest •  5 days ago 


Hi dear travelers!

Here is the news: today #TravelPhotoContest has started to use the @commentcoin hashtag #cc. This means your wonderful contest entries (comments) will get a sweet additional reward! Isn't that great!

So go ahead and check out / test-drive this new rewarding-your-efforts feature!

I am also asking you for your honest opinion what could be done to improve #TravelPhotoContest? What would you like to see/have. Or what you would not like to see? ;) Shoot, do not hesitate!

I have to admit that the contest currently is barely self-sustainable, it needs financial "injections" from time to time to properly function so I ask myself from time to time is it worthy at all. Hopefully the future will be brighter...

Thanks a lot in advance!

Hey @axeman, now #cc makes sense, doesn't it? 😉🍻

Well, I would definitely use it.. if still running contests :)

We need the BEERs! 😝
Great initiative, for the moment not other ideas to improve the competition.

Cheers! :)

To be honest, I was a bit disappointed from that service as it wasn't stable for me and running sporadically. Also reducing the comment value from 1.0 to 0.1 (ten times) didn't feel right to me. Since then I am powering down and turning those beers tokens into SBI prizes here.

Perhaps a good idea is when the contest account SP is bigger I go and upvote one or more posts of the winner?

P.S. @davidesimonchini, please let me know if you've got 1 CC in your steem-engine wallet for your comment ;)

The upvote would be very appreciated, I think. For the BEERs, yes, you're right.
I detest the decimal value of comments enough even though the project is a pretty way to award small prizes.
P.S. cc arrived

OK then, your wish is my command :P

I'm starting to stake !BEER again, let's give it another chance :)

Hey @davidesimoncini, here is a little bit of BEER for you. Enjoy it!

Hi 👋 I definitely use the cc tag. I also like commenting esp. if there's a possible coin incentive 😊😊
Also, give amateur photographers a chance to win? Maybe separate the pros from the enthusiasts? 😁😁 I think more will be encouraged to join if they feel they have a chance to be chosen 😉👍

I gave this a lot of thoughts when I started. Apart from three people I know are pro photographers, the rest are simply photo-lovers ;) Not that pro-photogs don't love photography, LMAO, I am one of them. That is why I try to change the theme almost every time. To give everyone an equal chance. ;) But perhaps having a special for Amateurs only edition(s) makes sense. By the way those pros don't send entries too often (unfortunately) :)
Thanks so much for your feedback, @iamraincrystal!

In fact, I love the idea of the contest, when we have 24 hours to think, picked up the photo and edit it. And diversity of themes. Even don't know what can be improved ))

Thank you so much for your feedback, @zirochka! One thing I was thinking of is improving the prizes somehow. For example I plan to give 10 SBI for the #100 edition.

Some surprize rewards. ;) That's one direction though.

Glad I read this!💯

Hmmm, I like the idea of different theme everyday. I love it. And thank you for always tagging me. It kinda reminds me that I should participate.

Sure, it's a friendly reminder. If you don't like it anymore, just drop me a comment and I'll remove it. I'm not a spammer :)

I love the idea of the travel contest especially when you have 24h. it creates a seance of urgency to be creative. the bigger the reward the better, :)

That's the goal. More and better rewards. Thank you! Hopefully it will happen sooner ;)

It is a great contest! Good luck keeping it going. I know what a struggle it can be. Are you posting through eSteem? I'd be happy to promote your next contest there if you are.

Thank you for your kind words and support, @melinda010100! You know very well, it is a real struggle ;)
I am posting through SteemPeak, as I need more hash-tags (they allow ten) but all the other activities I do from eSteemSurfer for Desktop, I love it! :) When I collect more than 150 esteem tokens, I use them to promote the contest for a day - I am not sure that's the best to do but it has been inviting some nice new entrants from time to time ;) Any advice with that regards is more than welcome :)

Have a great weekend!

Sending you some ESTM tokens to use!

Oh, such a pleasant surprise! More promotion for the contest ;)
Thank you so much!

My pleasure. I was under the impression that you had to post through eSteem to promote a post there, so I hope it works for you!

Oh it does work as I've been promoting few contests already, solely with ESTM from the comments, I love to reply to all contest participants ;)

Oh, good to know! And thanks for using eSteem!

Thanks for always tagging me.
I would like to see travel contest theme: digital pictures with before and after digital edit...

That's a lovely idea, thank you!

Have a sunny and relaxing weekend!

I respect what will be the best in your decision.
What I can do is to support you dear!

Cool feature! As for me, the contest looks great, but the short entry window can sometimes be a problem on busy days; besides that, can´t think of anything else!

Agreed, it is short and keeps everyone sharp. :)))
Thank you!
