Winner of Hive SBI

Before we get to the random drawing, I want to highlight @repayme4568 for his three poem submissions this week! Really super effort there @repayme4568. For being such a great example, 1 SBI headed your way.


Now, on to the drawing. Excluding myself, that puts 11 people in the running for 5 shares of Hive SBI this week.

I threw you guys into a random picker...


and the winner is...

If this works, it should be an animated gif of the spin)


Congratulations @raj808! 5 Hive SBI headed your way.


(if you aren't sure what SBI is, it's kind of lifetime payment system. You can read about it here)

And thank you all for your wonderful poems!

Next Week ~ Next Prize

Next week will be the same reward — shares of Hive SBI.

The exact amount of Hive SBI depends on how many poets submit poems for the week. I'm bumping up the win amounts this time.

0-9 poets - 1 SBI
10-19 poets - 5 SBI
20–49 poets - 10 SBI

(Note, these numbers don't include @moeknows or myself.)

So if you want a chance for Hive SBI, go write a poem! If you want a chance for a lot of Hive SBI, go recruit others (and write a poem)! Spread the word, upvote and share this post to make it more visible, contact poet buddies on Discord and try to talk them into joining our group.

Just remember the rules:

  1. Comment on two other poems for every one that you post
  2. Make it a good comment (not just "great poem!"). We're not asking you to analyze the poem. If nothing comes to mind, here are two ideas: tell how it made you feel or a line you especially liked.
  3. If you offer criticism, keep it gentle and polite and remember the golden rule of criticism: say at least two positive things for every one thing you criticize.

Anyone caught breaking these rules will not be eligible for the reward.

Note: I suspect a few of you didn't follow rule number 1 this past week. I will be watching this more closely going forward. Please be sure to provide two comments for every poem you post. I'm sure you all enjoy when you receive comments; well, share the love and bring that same enjoyment to other people by leaving them comments.

I'm looking forward to reading everyone's new poem in this next week.
