Hi all, earlier this week I posted about Scorum Athletes of the Month Awards.
In there I posted my nominations for this month and I received one additional nomination afterward. Now has come the time to vote for the first Scorum Legends of the Month in three categories (male/female/team).
How does the voting work?
All of you who would like to vote will receive 5 votes that they can use per category. The order is important. Your votes will score as follows:
- 10 points
- 7 points
- 5 points
- 3 points
- 1 point
Voting will last one week, after which the winners will be announced.
Adopting a nominated athlete
Everyone who upvotes this post has the right to adopt one of the nominated athletes. Each athlete can only be adopted once and in case an athlete gets adopted for the second time, only the first one counts. The person adopting second can then adopt another athlete instead of course.
If the athlete that you adopted wins the voting for this month, you will win 10 SCR.
I will vote myself, but I will not be able to win the 10 SCR.
The aim is to write an article about the winning athletes here on Scorum.
I also plan to gather more information to share on the nominated athletes in future posts.
