Here anyone can nominate Who you think is the most broken-hearted member of the sports world for last week, and then try to cheer them up or give them some advice.

This contest is for anyone in any Scorum domain and is designed to give everyone something fun to write about every week with a guaranteed minimum upvote income that you can count on. There are always fails and goofs in sports, so even if you have nothing else to write about you can find a subject for a Happy Moan-Day blog. Although this contest does have solid prizes, it is not about winning the contest and collecting the SCR it is about writing a steady weekly blog that will provide you with a constant and steady income stream. It is also about having fun, most people enjoy a chuckle about a funny fail, how many of us can help but laugh when someone slips and falls? In sports such gaffes can provide grounds for a funny blog as long as no one was seriously injured. Upset losses seem to be the easiest targets for Moan-Day blogs followed by managers, coaches and players who were released or who have otherwise lost their jobs. While not always funny it can be easier for the victim to take when a little light-hearted ribbing is applied, especially when followed by some timely words of encouragement or advice.

Scorum price is in free-fall and I see other users going over the edge toward the abyss, my what should I do?

One year later later on a celebration cruise with other Scorum Hodl'ers, Friend: "hey Pete, what do you think "Former Scorum Member" is thinking right now about his decision to abandon the project?" Me: " My guess is that he's somewhere in a dark corner banging his head against a wall."

I'm happy looking around Scorum and seeing that there are several people who are still strong supporters of the project and are still working hard to build their accounts, but it saddens me to see others that listen to the FUD and fall victim to the end of the bear market syndrome when long time holders begin to lose hope and drop out, selling all of their investment and giving up on their dreams. It happens every time in every market, not just the crypto market and the professional investors know this and wait on it like vultures. They are more than happy to profit off of our fear, uncertainty and doubt. I have watched the process play out over the last few weeks and it is so predictable. First the researchers show up asking a lot of technical questions and making pointed comments to see if the developers are still involved with the project and what the current status is. Then after they have chosen out the working projects or those that are nearing completion they send in the FUD'ers, flamers, spammers, and acid spewers to all of the good but struggling project's Telegram groups and cause confusion, dissension, attacks against the developers, and vile acidic comments to the projects strongest supporters. They scare as many as possible to sell their holdings or create a long sell side stack on all the exchanges. They pick up as many coins as possible at rock bottom prices knowing that they will not have to hold them long before they can turn over a massive profit as prices once again rise during a bull trending market.

If you don't believe me then go back and look at some of the other low cap projects that meet that description's telegram groups, if you look close you can see this pattern. People know that the sentiment is changing in the crypto markets, and they know that this change happens slowly. This gives them time to swoop in and profit off of others who have already lost hope, it hurts me to watch but it is the way people are and it is the way that markets work.

But I Can See The Light At The End Of The Tunnel, And I'm Holding On Till We Are Out Of This Dark Time For All Of Blockchain And Cryptocurrencies.

(This contest is all about Sports Losers, Fails, Muffs, Falls, Goofs, or anything else that would make a player, coach, fans or spectators moan and groan. It is meant to be funny and light-hearted so please, no post that would cause us to mourn like fatalities, or serious injuries, diseases or any other true personal tragedies. This is meant to be in fun, there are always funny fails that happen and there are losers that need to be cheered up. This is simply a way to cheer up all of those losers of the week who are trying to pull themselves back together again for the next competition.)

  1. The power of this competition is in recognition, by entering a blog in this contest you are sure to have some readers checking it out. I will upvote every qualifying blog as soon as I see the link posted below so that it gets bumped up on the trending pages. My hope is that readers will soon begin to recognize the blog title and make it a practice to support the entries. To enter this contest you must write and publish your own blog with the Title "Happy Moan-day ______________!" Fill in the blank with the name of a person, group, place, or team. This must be concerning something that has happened during the previous week prior to the contest blogs posting. So this current contest is for sports-related items that have happened between last Monday a week ago and yesterday, Midnight Sunday.
  2. Next include a photo, meme, short video clip, a screenshot or something similar that best represents the subject that you used to fill in the title blank. Make sure that you have usage rights and provide any necessary links.
  3. Now you need to write a blog of at least 450 but no more than 2,000 words to describe what happened and who was involved, as well as the reason that you are nominating them for moaners of the week.
  4. Provide a link back to this blog somewhere in your Moanful Monday Blog.
  5. Last you must say something at the end, one final quote or comment that is meant to cheer up or encourage the subject of your blog. This could be something simple like "C'est la vie," or a quote from a famous author or poet, a proverb or religious text, or best of all your very own words of wisdom or consolation. You are welcome to have your own signature encouraging comment and use it on all of your Moan-day blogs, or give a different comment or quote every week that best fits the situation.
  6. Once your Moanful Monday blog has been posted then leave a link to it in the comment section below so that I will know that you have entered the contest and I can then visit and upvote your blog.
  7. Your blog can be posted at any time before midnight Sunday night where you live, but the content must be from the previous weeks sporting events.
  8. You may enter this contest using any language, just post your blog in the native domain and provide links as stated above. Just know that I will be using a translator in order to read and judge your entry which may affect my ability to properly and fairly do so depending on the accuracy of the translator that I use.

Notes on Judging the contest

Several factors go into judging the Happy Moan-Day blogs, here are a few of them.

  • The blog is unique and engaging, it keeps the readers interest.
  • The blog is fun and light hearted, it leaves the reader with a smile on their face.
  • The reader learns something about the subject from reading the blog.
  • The advice or quotes at the end are appropriate and helpful to the subject of the blog.
  • While all of the words in the blog will count toward qualification, only those words that actually add to the story are used for judging, fluff words are ignored for this part of the contest.
  • Spelling and grammar are not directly judged in the contest, but readability is. If the judge can't read or make sense of the story then it is hard to judge it's quality.


Tiebreakers include how many of the other contest blogs you read and support and your overall engagement and activity on Scorum. The goal of this contest is to help support and build good blogging members that will in turn help build and grow the Scorum Platform. In a close decision the contestant that appears most active on Scorum will usually get the nod from the judge or judges. If there is nothing else to clearly set one entry apart from another, then the judge or judges will be looking for anything that the contestants have done recently to boost Scorum or help another blogger.

Everyone is encouraged to read and support as many of the Moanful Monday blogs as possible during the week. I will try to get these blog posts out early every Monday so that you can begin posting your blogs. I encourage you to write about an event that happens during the week and save it as a draft so that you will be ready to post it on Monday as soon as the new contest blog has been added.
