Project Affable is an Engagement League to empower 2nd and 3rd layer engagement in Steem Blockchain. It aims to enrich the participants with a dedicated reward pool. It aligns with major challenges and campaigns initiated by Steemit Team and encourages the participants to take the engagement deep, to produce quality comments, and ultimately bring value to this chain.
The project "Affable" aims to reward value engagement in Steem Blockchain. It is about productive engagement, something meaningful for either side in terms of disseminating critical information, individual situations, needs, reactions, sharing, learning, etc.
The maiden campaign of Project Affable started on 1st September and on 16th September 2020, it went global. Since then it is an engagement league for one and all in Steem Blockchain.
Project Affable is committed to organizing the Engagement League each month. Herewith we present the details of the Engagement League for the month of December 2020. Please pay attention to the relevant tags (of this month to engage with) and the rules.
Relevant tags to engage with, Dec 2020
In the month of December, the never-ending Diary Game Season 3, A Better Life with Steem, My Town in Ten Pics, TRON & Steemit Integration Celebration, etc is going on.
Therefore, project Affable for the month of December will consider engagement relevant to the following tags:-
To engage with any of these tags, you can visit the posts in this way:-
Which tags and How to use the tags at the bottom of your comment?
In project Affable, you don't need to do any additional task, you just need to include the #affable tag at the bottom of your comment to score Affable Ratio.
Steemcurator01 upvotes your comment with #onepercent #twopercent tag, so generally you use #onepercent #yourcountryname or #twopercent #yourcountryname at the bottom of your comment. Now you need to add #affable alongside #onepercent #yourcountryname or #twopercent #yourcountryname.
You are free to use any other tags if you find any other suitable contest which can earn you more rewards.
How to win?
You need to engage as much as you can and try to take the engagement deep so that you will produce more 2nd layer, 3rd layer comments that will help you to score higher Affable Ratio.
Just scoring "Affable Ratio" may not win you the contest, as the Affable Ratio will be probed with Active Participant Criteria & No Spam/Plagiarism criteria which are the minimum threshold in project Affable.
Affable Ratio will keep calibrating with the changing dynamics of the different parameters that are being used, however, the objective will remain the same.
At the moment the #onepercent and #twopercent tags are being supported by Steemit Team. Project Affable aims to optimize your engagement effort with #affable tag and more weightage on your 2nd, 3rd layer engagement, so that alongside Steemcurator01 upvotes you can win a piece of pie from the Affable Reward pool.
Although project Affable empowers 2nd, 3rd layer engagement, the "affable ratio" is not just about 2nd, 3rd layer engagement. The affable ratio is a weighted average ratio of your comprehensive productive engagement and reflections, taking into account primary engagement(1st layer), 2nd layer engagement(3rd layer, or extended layer, if any), nos of one-percent votes & nos of two-percent votes from Steemcurator01.
Suppose from 1st Dec to 31st Dec 2020, @neerajkr03 makes 100 1st layer comments, 60 2nd layer comments, 10 3rd layer comments, 3 4th layer comments. He also receives 20 #onepercent upvotes, 5 #twopercent upvotes from @steemcurator01.
2C= 60+10+3= 73
Affable Ratio= [1C+2(2C)+OP+2(TP)]/6
=> Affable Ratio for @neerajkr03 = [100+(2 * 73)+20+(2 * 5)]/6= 46
Sample of 1st Layer, 2nd Layer, 3rd Layer engagement
Want to know your Affable Ratio?
Visit this SCM tool developed by @neerajkr03, you will get to know your Affable Ratio in one click. There will always be a separate button for each month's Affable Ratio (as the relevant tags keep on updating each month)
For more details on "how to check Affable Ratio", please visit this post.
Do's & Dont's
Try to engage meaningfully, to the merit of the content. You can always go with the "why, how, when" kind of comment in a friendly way, in a way that you seek to know more about it.
Try to avoid redundant words in the comment. Also, your comments should feel engaging.
Please avoid making repetitive comments or slightly modifying the same comment & pasting it everywhere. That will be considered an act of spam and will render you disqualified in this contest.
Please read the post first before making any comments. Just going by the picture and asking/commenting does not make sense to strengthen this engagement league.
Don't try to engage with multiple/alternate accounts. That will be considered as an egregious violation of the Rules and will render you disqualified and/or ban from this contest.
Total Prize Pool (325+50 STEEM)
- The top 11 winners will share a total pool of 325 STEEM.
- Project Affable will allocate another 50 STEEM for continuous development of the #SCM tool to automate & fine-tune the Affable Ratio, update it each month with relevant tags.
Active Participant Criteria
No comment for 4 consecutive days will render the participant as an inactive participant in the project Affable and his/her affable ratio won't be taken into consideration for determining the winner(s) of this contest.
Any act of spam/plagiarism will have you disqualified in this contest. However, if you have realized what went wrong and you trying to be a good actor, trying to restore confidence with genuine engagement and blogging, Project Affable will consider your participation in future contests.
The Engagement League for December will run from 1st Dec to 31st Dec 2020.
All the comments in #thediarygame #betterlife #mytown10pics #trxintegration will be taken into consideration for calculating the "Affable Ratio" and based on the Affable Ratio, the top 11 ranks at the end of the campaign will be rewarded.
You can also score Affable Ratio if you respond to the replies in your own post, should you use the #affable tag at the bottom of your comment, however, comments like "Thank you" or "Thank you for stopping by", "nice", "cool", etc will not be taken into consideration. The minimum comment size should be at least 100 characters.
The comments like "thank you", "wow", "nice", "good", "cool", "nice game from your side", etc or similar comments will not be taken into consideration while calculating the "Affable Ratio".
Repetitive comments will be considered as an act of spam.
Use tag #affable in your comment.
If you want to participate in the project "Affable", just comment with "I am affable, your country name". For example, I'm affable, INDIA. (Mandatory)
- Active-Participant Criteria and No Spam/Pagiarsim are the minimum thresholds of project Affable.
Result Announcement Date
- 10th January 2021
Note- The project "Affable" reserves the right to amend the rule as & when situations arise to deal with abuse.
Depending on the participation rate, we might consider expanding the winner's list. We might also reward quality comments, thought-provoking comments. However, it is solely at the discretion of the project Affable.
Project Affable will always offer lucrative rewards for the Engagement League and in time it will get better in its scaling capacity.
Important Note- Project Affable- Dec 2020 is announced today i.e. 6th Dec 2020. But it will consider all your engagement since 1st Dec, so make sure you are using the tag #affable in your comment and also make sure you have registered your participation by commenting I'm affable, yourcountryname(e.g. I'm affable, INDIA) in this post.
