As it currently stands (April 9, 2018), there will be up to five winners (First Place, Second Place, Third Place, Consolation Prize [Newbie or Jr. Member only], and Bonus Prize [Newbie only]) selected every Sunday by approximately 11:00PM (GMT -6). Participants are eligible to win multiple times throughout the duration of this challenge, but cannot win the First Place prize two consecutive weeks in a row.

How do I enter the challenge, and what are the rules?
• This challenge is available to any and all English-speaking members (Newbies thru Legendary) of BitcoinTalk.
• Negative trust members are permitted.
You must not be wearing any signature that belongs to any paid signature campaign.
• You can [optionally] choose to wear my signature (code in the following post) for a chance at a bonus $5
• You are permitted to have your own signature if you choose not to wear the optional signatures below
• You cannot apply for any paid signature campaigns while you are an active participant in any round of this challenge.
• You can take a break from this challenge to join paid sig campaigns, and you'll be welcome back any time you please (given that this challenge is still ongoing), but the same rules will apply to you once you return.
Alt (alternate) accounts: The only rules that pertain to alt accounts are as follows: You may not enroll in any single round with more than one account simultaneously. If enrolling with an alt account, please provide full disclosure that the account you are enrolling is an alt of another account that has previously entered the challenge. Your alt account(s) will not be eligible to win the first place prize if any other of your accounts have won that prize in the previous round. If an alt account that hasn't been fully disclosed is discovered in the challenge, all accounts related to that alt will be banned from entering in the future.

When are the rounds, and how long do they last?
Each round lasts for 6d 23h 59m, from every Sunday at 8:00PM to the following Sunday at 7:59PM (GMT -6).


When are the cutoff dates to submit my application?
The cutoff for entering is every Monday at 9:00PM (GMT -6). Upon submitting your application prior to the cutoff, you will be eligible to participate for the current round, while applying after the cutoff will place you into the next week's round.



How do I win the challenge?
You simply have to have the most substantial posts (according to me) for the duration of the week. There will be a minimum of 7 posts required (this is just to gage and maintain daily activity; posts do not have to be made daily) for the week and no maximum. There is no post character minimum. Posts will be allowed in any topic on any board, as long as the topic and board are English-speaking. Off-topic? Sure. Gambling or Micro Earnings. Go ahead. Ivory Tower? Yup. Altcoin Discussion? Sure, why not? As long as your posts are knowledgeable or contributive to the given dialogue of the topic, you'll earn points in my book. I won't disclose my criteria, but I will commit to going through every participant's post history for the week to ensure that a winner is chosen fairly.




To apply for the challenge, please fill out this Google Form and submit your application.

YOU MUST SUBMIT A NEW APPLICATION EVERY WEEK THAT YOU WISH TO PARTICIPATE.

NOTE: You do not need to submit a BTC address at this time. You can always submit it if/when you win the challenge. However, please note that if you do not provide your BTC address within a week after being declared a winner of a challenge, you will forfeit your winnings, which will then be re-allocated into the prize purse for future rounds.

IMPORTANT NOTE: As I am a huge proponent of SegWit, you must provide a nested P2SH SegWit address in order to be eligible to win any Bitcoin/cash prizes. Please update to a SegWit-enabled address and provide it in your future applications. To learn more about SegWit, click here: SegWit on Wikipedia • SegWit newbie? Use GreenAddress

Round 1: 1st (A) 1st (B) 2nd | Round 2: 2nd 3rd | Round 3: 1st 2nd | Round 4: 2nd | Round 5: 1st 2nd




This challenge was inspired by a dialogue with forum member bill gator upon reading a post where he challenged a sig spammer to make quality posts, whereas he would pay that user $10 if he was able to stop shitposting (as can be seen here). Good luck, everyone, and thanks for doing your part to help make the forums a better place! Cheesy



This specific thread is a continuation of the challenge from its original thread, which can be found here: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=3055616.0. It has been recreated in order to allow self-moderation, to be able to keep the thread easy-to-read and manageable.

How can I win an extra $5?
To be eligible to win an additional $5USD (for a total of $25USD), use the following signatures (designed & donated by hugeblack [click here to hire him to design your signature]) or use your own signature (Members and above), as long as it includes the words "Joe's Signatureless Challenge" anywhere in the description and a link to this thread.

If your signature is removed at any time throughout the round that you're enrolled in, the spreadsheet will reflect that you have removed the signature and you will not be eligible for the bonus reward.

In the event that nullius wins first place, $5 will be awarded to him, and the $10 balance will be rolled over into the prize purse for future rounds. (reference)


charlie137: Cash Sponsor
charlie137 has donated $5 towards the challenge. (txid)

Toughit: Cash Sponsor
Toughit has donated 0.003BTC to be awarded to any Full Member, Member, Jr. Member, or Newbie that beats nullius in rankings where he is eligible to win First Place. (reference)
This is a one-time offer to the first participant that beats nullius in any rounds where nullius is eligible to win the top prize.
Update: Because nullius has won First Place in Round 1, he has won $5, while the balance rolls over into future eligible rounds. nullius is no longer eligible to receive this specific reward, but the first user that naturally ranks higher than nullius will win the balance of 0.0025BTC.
Toughit has also rolled his winnings from Round 2 ($25) over to Round 3.


Sellingaccs: Consolation Prize Sponsor (Multiple Rounds)
Sellingaccs has sponsored a second consolation prize of 2 merits for Round 3. (reference)
Sellingaccs has sponsored 1 merit eligible to the first non-ranking Newbies or Jr. Member for Round 4 (reference)

Stedsm: Merit Sponsor (Multiple Rounds)
Stedsm has sponsored 3 merits for the 2nd place winner of Round 3. (reference)
Stedsm has sponsored 2 merits for the 2nd place winner of Round 4. (reference)

Please apply to this week's round (Round 7) by clicking here: https://goo.gl/forms/lx0zeIO7z3502Ctk2

Were you a participant in Round 6? Don't worry, winners will still be chosen for Round 6 and announced this week. Thanks for your patience!



EDIT: Because there were only 6 qualified participants by the end of Round 6, I have decided to personally pay each of them with $10 of my own personal money (not from the challenge escrow). More about this here: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=3055616.msg37200865#msg37200865

I have decided to award all of the qualified participants of the last round with $10 in BTC, as we only had 6 of you who met the criteria for the last week that the challenge was held. I hope you don't mind that ONE of you lost out on an additional $15, but please note that you did so in order to share the winnings with 5 others.

If I may be honest, it would require way too much time for me to go through your post history to the last month in order to critique the proper posts for the week of the challenge, so I would rather pay you personally (not from the challenge escrow account) for being a participant in the challenge for the week that everything went awry lol.

With that said, will the following members please PM me their SegWit-enabled addresses so that I can get them their small bonuses:

It makes me very happy to see that the challenge is getting going again after a lot of downtime and forum changes. Seems like our threads have been moved around, edited and critiqued and now we can move forward in an improved fashion. That being said, I am happy to continue my sponsorship of everything I have already pledged. However, at this point I would like to remove my merit sponsorship(s). I still may or may not provide the winner(s) with merit, but I do not want anyone to expect it. I'm doing some deep consideration on how to distribute my merits moving forward, and while I have no regrets for where it has gone thus far, I do not want to cheapen merit.

So, just to be clear I will not be sponsoring merit in a fixed manner any longer and will distribute it more organically moving forward. I will continue my cash sponsorship and am considering increasing it, too. Good to see things back up and running, but aren't we missing the announcement of last round's winners?

I actually prefer this! I'm not sure if you've noticed, but I have reduced the amount of merit that a user can win from this challenge. In the last couple of rounds, I have noticed the succession and increase of more participants that I consider to be "merit whores" applying to the challenge. I think the new structure will allow for a good balance between users who actually give a shit about wanting to improve the forums, wanting to earn some cash, and receiving merit as a reward for posting great content, rather than just the merit whores who make my duties of critiquing their posts that much harder...

Regarding the announcement of the last round's winners, I have decided to pay each of the six qualified participants with $10 each (from my personal pocket, not from the challenge escrow funds). More details can be found here: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=3055616.msg37200865#msg37200865

Anyone can leave merits to good comments. Even new members may have some sMerits if they received at least 2 merits. There are merit sources too, who gives merits to good posts (usually they give 2-3 merits for good comments).

It's very hard to find good posts to give merit. Most of the boards are flooded with shitposts, specially the altcoins sessions.
Most of the users spread misinformation and do not even do 1 google search before posting.

I think this competition is a great opportunity for new members to get a few merits and learn how improve post quality. It helped me, as I knew someone was going to really read my posts, so I was careful while writing them.

Since the merit prize has been reduced from 8 to 4 for the First Place, why it hasn't been updated in the signatures? Huh Joe, though the new signature is  updated with the new link, it should also be updated with the merit prize change right? and please check the PM I have sent you.

Consolation Prize
(only available for Newbies/Jr. Members)

3 Merits
(sponsored by LoyceV [3 Merits]
@OP: this needs to be corrected. I originally committed to give 2 Merit as a consolation prize, not 3. But per PM you've asked me to reduce it to 1, which makes it more in line with the other prizes. Either way, the OP should be corrected.

I'm willing to sponsor more Merit too, if needed (and deserved).

Hi mate, I would like to be a merit sponsor for first to third place for any upcoming round. I will always keep 7 sMerits available for this challenge.

By the way from last Monday, 21st to till now 24th May - I am wearing the link of this post voluntary. I PMed you for some queries but seems like you are busy. Don't mind to reply the PM, I am ok now.   

I could not stand the lies against me anymore. I can not prove them wrong too. It's better I live in peace.
So, I am willingly locking mdayonliner. Thank you BitcoinTalk. Be addictive, be a Bitcoiner.

Sorry, all, I have to pause this campaign again. I just got back from traveling, and we haven't had a good response in getting entries for Week 7, partly due to my lack of pushing and promoting this challenge.

It will be opened again when I have the time to dedicate more to it, more than likely in June, after the official launch of the company I've been working with.

Thanks for your patience, all.
