Creating the biggest POST EVER! - 186 users needed

in LeoFinance2 months ago

Hello LBIer's, it's been a few weeks but I have not forgotten are given up on creating a post so big that it will take a full HIVE block to store it. Most of our daily reader will know about this but there is lots of fresh blood on LeoFinance and we are after 200 users so this might take a month are 2. As with anything, their is no beauty/reward without some pain/grind. If you are not aware of what we are trying to do, check it out.

Goal - Produce a 64,000 character post

The maximum amount of date a HIVE block can hold is equal to a little over 64,000 characters in a single post. Comments and posts are the same things to the blockchain so it has to be within 1 post. We plan to create a post that will fill a complete block and call it the Leo block. This is all just for fun, I think it would be awesome to be part of the biggest ever post that can be created on the HIVE blockchain. But there is no monetary incentive to take part so most users will have no interest in taking part.

  • Collect 200 messages from LEO users
  • Each message must be 320 characters long (-/+ 10)
  • Collect at least 1 LEO from each taking part to be burned
  • Combine all 200 messages into 1 post and upload
  • Result - Biggest possible ever post
  • Can't be beaten, only equalled

That's right, we are going to create a post to the maximum amount that can be stored on a block within the HIVE blockchain. We will call it the Leo block and we're offering users the chance to take part.

14 users have took part so far, shout out the @bozz, @rxhector, nonsowrites, @amr008, @jfang003, @hykss, @preparedwombat, @dagger212, @jmsansan.leo, @partitura, @trumpikas, @alexvan, @ammonite and @pardinus. We have received 31 LEO so far in donations for the RIP @null burning.

Still, a long way off 200 users, im guessing this number will change to 100 as it seems to be difficult for people to think of a message containing 320 characters. If the message content was to be "explaining why i will do this later", we would have hit our 200 user target already. People can write 100-150 words to say they'll think of something and come back later instead of just doing it. Procrastination is a bitch.

Please see this post for full details

We require 200 people to give us 320 characters of content based on the numbers below.

  • 64,000 characters divided by 200 people is 320 characters per person
  • 320 characters per person to include username plus 2 for formatting

example,
username - @heyjoe = 320 minus 6 for username minus 2 for formatting equals 312 characters for content

  • Please remember that each space between words counts as 1 character
  • Pictures/videos are any media that will not be accepted
  • 320 characters is around 56 words to give you a rough ballpark. It's very

How to take part

To take part will cost you a minimum of 1 LEO token, there is no limit to how much to can send to take part, 1, 5, 24.712, 100 LEO all accepted. All LEO tokens received will be burned, sent to @null. You might be thinking why burn it? We burn the donations to say thank to LeoFinance for giving us all the opportunity to earn lots of dollars for very little work. Giving a little back every now will make you feel warm inside knowing you did something positive for the ecosystem. Most of us will have earned hundreds of dollars worth of LEO, some will have thousands and others will have earned tens of thousands of dollars. When I put it that way, burning a few LEO to take part in a community-building activity is the least we can do.

LBI will offer 3 Prizes to the top donators

  • Top Donator wins 15 LBI token
  • Second, win 10 LBI tokens
  • Third, win 5 LBI token

The more you donate, the more we burn the better your chance of winning some LBI tokens.

1/ Comment below with your 320 character message
2/ Make a donation of at least 1 LEO to @lbi-funding

Slow and steady. Almost need a way to reward people to participate to spark the engagement, involvement, participation. May try to write a 64k character post myself..

Ah it is always like that I guess, no matter what we need to provide some incentive for the people to participate in these type of contests otherwise people just don't want to take part .

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Looks like we went up from 6 people to 14 people. I am a little disappointed we didn't get more participants given the fact that there were so many interested people. Given the current rate, I think it may take a few months to collect the required 200 people.

That's just the way it is, everyone a part of something selectively and cherry pick. Not many people that spread themselves far and wide :)

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

I don't think people have a problem with writing something 320 character long, people are just cheap and want to hold on to their Leo :P

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Yeah, that would more sense. I have a plan B :)

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Oh this is going to be a long contest I suppose . If the same people could enter every week and leave new 320 characters comments that would have been nice . I would have participated every week .

Never thought of that, same people more messages. I'll think about that one.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Great. Our aim must be 200 messages instead of 200 users so.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

I want to participate, I will donate 1 Leo, but I'm still a little confused. Where do I need to post this? the user's @ doesn't count? For example, mine is @vempromundo, does that count as 11 or 12 characters?

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Counts as 12. Each character including spaces counts as 1 :)

I really would have thought more people would have taken part in this!

Yeh me too, i have a plan B to speed things up.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Best of luck!

What about making the prize stuff distributed weekly or monthly (if you had received more than you have to distribute) ? and for each round everyone can join again, even the ones who joined previously.
Because we will never reach it otherwise :D

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

to be honest, i thought this would have taken 3-4 weeks. Im not willing to out that much effort into a fun free project. I like the idea's but i have another that will speed things up. Just forget the LEO burning and collect messages

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

I added mine last time around. Who's next? We can't just keep upvoting this same post week after week, can we? lol

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

I dont look forward to re writing every week either, hahaha

@lbi-token this is really an interesting idea and it will really help the LEO economy to grow too....
