🏆 Change to Fantasy Sports Prizes

As the fantasy football season draws to a close, I've been thinking a lot about the prizes and the STEEM that I've been giving away throughout the season. Whilst I want to support the Steemit community with great contests and great prizes, it pains me to see so many of the prizes that I've awarded being withdrawn and so many within the Sports community powering down.

I appreciate that what users do with the STEEM that they earn is their choice, in the same way that it is my choice as to what I do with my STEEM and the prizes awarded. This has led me to make the following decision:


Prizes will no longer be awarded as liquid STEEM and instead will be awarded in the form of delegations


These delegations will be awarded without the need to claim the prize and will remain in place whilst the winners remain active on Steemit. Once a winner becomes inactive for 3 months, the delegation will be removed.

I believe that this is an important change to ensure longevity and a strong Fantasy Sports community here on Steemit going forwards.

Prize Increases

This also has the benefit of allowing me to increase the weekly prizes, safe in the knowledge that this account has over 4,000 Steem Power to fall back on as well as the power held by @the-gorilla.

These changes will take effect immediately and include the following changes to ongoing contest prizes:

Daré mi opinión personal y 100% sincera como siempre he intentado hacerla…

Considero que podrías haberlo dejado para el inicio de alguna nueva temporada (Algún fantasy del mundial o el inicio de las nuevas temporadas de ligas quizás) porque si bien entiendo el punto de que no te gusta que retiren tanto ya realizaste un post de presentación de concurso donde prometes algo y que llegando a su fin lo cambies no me parece muy bueno.

Sinceramente me gusta que el premio sea así, no me desgrada para nada que recibamos delegaciones que si nos mantenemos activos la mantendremos el resto de nuestro tiempo en Steemit, pero personalmente tengo una hija pequeña y estoy en el Club5050 por ella, no retiro para gastarlo lo hago para mantenerlo como una inversión a largo plazo en binance o en otras plataformas y dedico mi trabajo fijo a los gastos personales con eso tengo un granito para mi hija y otro para el crecimiento de mi cuenta aquí en Steemit donde pienso quedarme mucho tiempo.

No es que este optando a demasiados premios finales (incluso perdí el 3er puesto en España en la penúltima jornada) pero creo que por lo menos deberías pagar el Steem liquido de los premios a final de temporada. Mas para cumplir una palabra dicha hace meses que otra cosa.

Entre porque me gustan los Fantasy, pero quizás otras personas no, y solo entraron por ganar Steem, hace meses incluso antes de ver los tuyos yo organizaba concursos con esa dinámica por lo que creo que cumplir con lo acordado desde un principio debe ser prioridad.

De todas maneras, es solo mi opinión y quería que la supieras, algunos estarán de acuerdo otros no, yo continuare jugando por diversión y ojala saquen uno del mundial 2022, saludos y éxitos bro.

I appreciate your opinion and a part of me shares it.

The difficulty is with this update that I made 4 months ago where I say:

This is still only eligible for teams that have officially entered and users who are actively posting and commenting on Steemit. This will prevent me from transferring STEEM to people who have left the platform or who ignore notifications from me.

I have continued to transfer prizes as liquid STEEM but unfortunately, I'm still transferring STEEM to people leaving the platform and one user who has done well hasn't posted for 2 months and is 100% powering down. In my opinion, this makes them ineligible for the final prizes but this opinion could be considered as subjective so I want to remove any ambiguity and treat everybody the same. Another example is the current leader of UCL (the one which isn't me) - he hasn't been active for 4 months now.

Since starting these contests, I want every decision that I make to be for the good of the entire community - long term. Knowing that prizes are leaving the platform doesn't achieve this. When I look around at the sporting community on Steemit, it feels like it's getting smaller with each week that passes.

I should probably have gone further in my update 4 months ago but things have changed even more since then. (With a few exceptions) it feels as though the sporting community has powered down. A huge proportion of the prizes I've distributed have left the platform. If I "allow" another 200 STEEM (for example) to leave the platform between now and the end of the season, that's 200 STEEM that won't be upvoting anybody's content.

Every decision feels wrong.

Empatizo contigo en ese sentido, durante los últimos concursos que llegue a realizar no me di cuenta que estaban participando muchas cuentas falsas, que por cierto actualmente sacaron todo ese Steem a una misma billetera, no me gustaría que te suceda lo mismo, aunque creo que si verificas mejor que yo.

Sinceramente nunca fui de los que verificaba mucho y como no era un concurso de apreciación sino más bien de cálculo de puntos según los partidos reales, solo me importaba hacer un buen trabajo y ya.

Ahora ese desangramiento de la comunidad deportiva me duele también, porque es lo que más me gusta desarrollar en la plataforma, así que mantener viva esta categoría será vital para los amantes de deporte.

Saludos mi pana!

I've tried to be very careful with checking people who have entered - having done a lot with @endingplagiarism, I had a good idea of what to look for with entries and there were a few that tried to enter multiple teams. And then they thought it was unfair when I banned all of their teams and didn't let them keep one!

Unfortunately, there's a lot of people on Steemit who are intent on "cheating". Some even openly admit it and see it as a game, trying not to get caught. I sometimes wonder if any of the new accounts in the Newcomers' Community are genuine 🤷‍♂️

We do our best, that's all we can do 🙂

A wise decision. I really liked it. So the prizes will definitely work for the community.

Thanks 👍 I'm a bit nervous about doing it so late in the season but more than 3/4s of the prizes distributed have been withdrawn 😟

I'm thinking that next season, I'll delegate most of @fpl-gorilla's Steem Power in prizes over the course of the season. Which should see about 4,000SP redistributed 🙂
