Hive Engagement 2021

By popular request (one person), the top 100 EL scores for 2021 along with some chat on prizes and excuses as to why the author didn't make the top 100 😳

Sorry, can't engage right now, starring at πŸ”₯


Last year, I powered up 2634 HIVE to Engagement League participants. With the kind sponsors of various numbers (@tarazkp with 260 HP alone for number 10), the prizes were likely knocking on for 3000 HIVE - over 4000 USD at current prices.

Not bad at all I think!

A year or so ago I was told the EL wouldn't scale, and it should be the various interfaces/apps to collect and present data such as engagement. I would agree with the first point if we had 100,000+ accounts commentating each day, but we not even close, even in a bull market of sorts.

As far as interfaces/apps presenting the data, I'd like to see that. Although, what about checks on automated commentary gaming the numbers, prizes, and a 'hub' for folks to drop in and say hello.

I do think there is still room for the EL, but if enough people tell me otherwise then I'll take note. Until then, into year 5 we go!


So the table below has the data from the 2021, everyone who ever has asked to be added to the EL participants list has been included (even those who asked to be removed from the weekly table - Galen (4th), Denise (3rd), to name two πŸ™‚ )

I've removed the vote data for space reasons, and votes being only a minor engagement metric with regards to total score.

If you made it to the list, well done, and thank you!

And it looks like 2022 has started brightly for engagement on Hive:

So what about the author, why isn't he on the list? Umm yeah, apologies for not being as active in the commentary as I once was.

If I totaled the scores of abh12345 and alts, I would sneak into the list at number 72 - not terrible, but not as engaging as previous years.

I'm still here though! It's just that Hive has changed for me in the past year or so. Games (mainly SL and RisingStar) have become more time consuming (those renting SL cards will understand!), and there are now other opportunities to earn tokens.

The other reason, which has come more to the fore since I moved to Mallorca and became fully remote - I like being outside more! And as the day job roots me to this chair for 8 hours, I feel the need to move and rest my eyes. Of course, many others have office/screen jobs, so this doesn't just apply to me.

The other, slightly more 'worrying' to admit, is that my account has (for me, I'm not aiming to be a Hive don or a top 20 earner) reached a level I am happy with. This could all change in a moment, and I could be back in the trenches looking for extra eyes to visit my content. For now though, I hope there are plenty of others in 'build mode', and I can continue as I am.


Thanks as always for supporting the EL, and for providing feedback and engagement to Hive's content.

Happy New Year!

Asher

Perfectly valid and indeed splendid reasons at the bottom there. I have to admit. My target a long time ago was to break 50K and since then I haven't felt the same oomf to build higher. But I am still about, just not as much so I get you.

I am glad I made the yearly list. Would have been pants to miss that list!

Cheers Boomery!

I think there's a point where the amount of comments coming in on your post take up the majority of your allocated time available, and without getting square eyes, there's just not the time to delve too deep into what others are doing.

Hopefully newbies and those keen to build are constantly picking up the slack!

I think (hope) they are! It is tough with the home working as well. When Iworked in the office I could skive like fuck all day long. Literally, some days I would go home square eyed from Hiving. Then the working from home started and its constant grief all day long. Most days I have 10-15 meetings!

I've always liked what you're doing here. Not sure why I never joined. Maybe because I talk too much and don't want to be reminded with prizes. I too like to get away though. Far, far away. -50 today though so, outside isn't much fun.

Thank you. Never too late, and I can skip you on the prizes (i give out) if you wish.

I like the returns, bringing new enthusiasm to the same party 😁

-50, that is not good for life as we know it!

Dude I'm weird though. If I join that thing, then I'll feel like I have to comment. Not 'forced' but... hmmm. Pressured isn't even the right word. But it's something like that. An obligation, like a job. Alarm clocks suck. I just like going with the flow, not thinking about anything other than what I'm doing. I'm weird when it comes to this stuff.

And yeah, not kidding. -50 C

Pro Tip:

Never piss outside when it's -50.

Wow this actually is how I feel a lot about a lot of these things. I have quite a bit of topics in the backburner I have yet to post as well because for me posting is also somewhat of a feeling of needing to increase a massive amount on reading/commenting in order to make sure the people that drop by my post are responded to.

Hahaha man because you singled out piss outside when it's -50 it does bring me such an odd sense of curiosity X_X

I need to be better with my engagement on others posts. Finding a balance between normal work which sucks the life outta me, family, and everything here, can be challenging. But I’m trying.

Happy new year brother.

You got your own business and a family to keep happy, that has to take priority even if it is a life-sucker at times (business not fam!).

Yeah I feel like I want to give more time to all of what this corner of our world offers, but it’s hard to carve enough time out for everything. It is what it is.

Thx man. We’ve luckily had a great 2021 but I think this year is going to slow down a bit for a handful of reasons. Fingers crossed it’s decent. 🀞

I'm happy enough to be in the top 25. Engaging can be lucrative and I keep telling people to do it if they want to build a following.

I hope life is treating you well out there. 2022 could be great for Hive if we keep pushing.

A very solid placing :)

Glad to hear you are pushing this one, it does remain key for new joiners and those looking to attract people to their content.

Doing pretty good thanks now the Covid has gone, it's lovely and sunny too :)

Happy New Year, !PIZZA !

I can't believe I'm in the top 100 despite being a late starter this year πŸ™Œ

As for your engagement, I would like to see you around more! Is there any way to balance it so you can have fun outdoors and still post?

I hope the EL lives forever ❀️

You bring something so fun to Hive... And maybe in the future - it won't scale...but for now? It's a blast and everyone here loves it.

I love seeing how I ranked that week and then looking back to see why I did! What pushed me that week, what overwhelmed me that week..

What other ways can we measure our progress on Hive really? I mean...post payout doesn't necessarily show how well you're doing. A whale can come by and vote and that's that! Hehehe. But does that show how connected you are?

Comments! That's what shows the connection to me.

And what you do shows how much I'm taking the time to connect with others. And that's so important.

And then there are prizes too hahahahaha not only that...your post becomes a place where we can meet other genuine engagers!

So what you do is absolutely invaluable. And we so appreciate!! So as long as you're enjoying... We are too! Hehehe

Thanks for every week!

Thank you! I don't know how that happened. I sit out most of the year! Thank you so much!!!!!! I guess he used the time that you are in the league. That makes sense.

so, I ended with #28 on the final list -- intresting, and maybe of no use at all, but definitely fun to know! and ofc, engagement. tnks for getting together all the numbers, Archer.

!PIZZA, and best wishes for the Year of 2022! Hope it will bring us mush more positive then disenchantments. 2021 have passed quite well, especially for the Hive, isnt it? 🀸

Of little use, but worth a quick 'oh, right' :)

Thank you, Happy New Year!

Last year, I powered up 2634 HIVE to Engagement League participants. With the kind sponsors of various numbers (@tarazkp with 260 HP alone for number 10), the prizes were likely knocking on for 3000 HIVE - over 4000 USD at current prices.

That is approximately $1000 USD more than my annual/yearly pension-like income for my multiple disabilities, which is approximately $3000 USD per year (approximately $250 USD per year).

I do think there is still room for the EL

We probably all agree on this. Thank you for what you do, including the power ups. By the way, nice to be in the top 20 of 2021 in the engagement league. Being the 19th is probably not so bad.

Happy New Year to everyone.

Have a nice day. All the best. Greetings and much love from Hungary.

Can't believe I made the list, I joined pretty late in the year, I think around December or so but this initiative has been a motivation for me truly.

Life does pull one in many different directions, living one and cannot always be here but try our best to keep up with the rest, harmony among the ranks on Hive in supporting each other always.

Last couple of years have been uprooting for many, some not finding firm footing dealing with unexpected surprises, stay safe and enjoy whatever you decide to Asher.

Snuck into the T20! :D

I enjoy the EL posts and the conversations on it - it is always (nearly) positive and people have a good time :)

With all that's been going on, T20 is a fine effort.

I was wondering why I wasn't there either - I could blame it on the alts, but I think more than likely I've spent more time dicking around on Discord this year and after that I'm in no fit state to comment on anything!

I do not really understand when people say your Engagement League can not scale. There are more and more people joining even if they do not make the top 100 list. How many people are on the list now?

Jan 3, 2021 322 accounts earned a score this week
Jan 3, 2022 456 accounts earned a score this week

True not a big number increase, but more and more people looking for information in an easy to use form on how they are doing. How much longer would it take to process a list of 2000 accounts? That increase above is what about 30% growth in the user of EL? That's actually not bad.

I say keep doing it till the number of users are such that it takes to much time to process and build the table.

Yes, that's the point. I only list the top 100 and so if there were 20,000 names on my list, it would take a while to run the script but i'd still only be displaying the top engagers.

We had just over 900 list members active last year, from just over 1400.

I say keep doing it till the number of users are such that it takes to much time to process and build the table.

Will do, Happy New Year :)

That's not a bad set of numbers 900 out of 1400 still active. I wonder if the numbers percent wise will change much at the end of 2022.

Woo-hoo! Who thought I would make it? Not me. Obviously, you are only counting when I was in the EL. Thank you for doing this, it makes me happy to know that I made the list.

I will definitely be coming back in a bit, just to make sure I can still keep up. It has been a good year for me, although getting out there is a challenge between work, family, extended family, travel (Yes! But, not enough), and renovating another house. So good I don't need sleep!

Thanks for everything Asher! @abh12345 You are the best!

It sounds like you have many responsibilities to manage, Hive can drop down the priority list at times.

Thank you too, for sponsoring and championing the EL!

You know what why not I'd love to join in on year 5 of engagement league if it is possible. Since that happens to be Gary Vee's favorite number. Plus I'm already doing most of this on a regular basis anyways so why not have some stats to look back at. Hopefully it doesn't consume me too much hahah as I know how my personality gets when it comes to these type of things.

Ah sorry, I missed you off this weeks list - added for next time.

Don't stress about appearing in the top 100 or not, some weeks are more active than others. Welcome!

Thanks for having this list. Hope I will be able to make it to the next one end of this year.
Those games really are time consuming - and I completely feel you. Not always possible to be very active.
It is also great to rest after reaching some goals. You could always aim for more and never be satisfied. Really like your approach. I am still on the beginning of my journey, so I need to work a little harder than most of you to catch up.
Mallorca sounds pretty nice!

Wish you a wonderful 2022!

Cheers,
@andy-plays

Thanks Asher, for me it's about connecting not reward, although always good to know if one is doing sufficient.

Hope you have recovered and starting to find your feet in your new home and town.

Hey. I knew you'd taken a break but wasn't sure as to the reason. I hope your wife has recovered and 2022 is a calmer one for both :)
