We are coming close to the weekend and this can only mean one thing: It is time for the next Scorum Patronage nomination round. And same as every week, I need your help to suggest me some of your favorite writers, who in your eyes don't get enough attention from the Scorum community. We have time until Sunday when I will chose the person who got the most nominations and declare him to our "choice of the week".

After that it is going to be my job to visit the chosen writer's profile for a whole week to check out and support his or her articles with my upvotes.

To motivate everybody to join I will again give a full upvote to the comment who nominates this round's winner first. I addition I will also throw in some more votes for those comments which explain why a certain nominee will be a great choice and why he/she needs my assistance. I hope this will finally lure more you into joining the nomination round.

The idea behind Scorum Patronage is as usual, bringing some attention to some newer writers or to some Scorum blogs who aren't so successful yet. Through my assistance I want to motivate everybody to continue contributing interesting blog posts. I also hope that just by being nominated the one or the other already feels encouraged to write more wonderful articles about the fascinating world of sport and not to give up in the beginning.

This week I am assisting @herbaycity, another Scorum member, whose profile I am now checking out on a daily basis but so far he hasn't posted anything new this week. I hope there is still something coming until his turn ends on Sunday.

Nominations for WEEK 9:

Let's start the ninth round of Scorum Patronage in 2019. The question I usually ask is pretty easy and straightforward:

Which user here at Scorum deserves a little attention and should be supported by me for a week?

I want you to suggest Scorum users who need a little boost. I am not only thinking of new members of our community but also of writers who have been around for a while and who are still struggling getting attention with their work.

I don't care about the size of the Scorum wallet, but let's rather have a look on everybody's usual post rewards. To be eligible for winning a week of Scorum Patronage support the average post reward of the last 10 articles shouldn't be higher than 15 SCR. I am not going to be to strict about this figure, but please consider that the idea behind Scorum Patronage is to support users who don't usually get a high reward for their articles.

I will then pick the candidate with the most nominations and accompany him/her for one week. If there is no leader in the nominations, I will select the one who has less SP in his or her wallet.

The blog of the user chosen by the community will be visited by me daily in the coming week and I will upvote one article per day with 50% to 100% of my voting power, according to length and quality of the post. Hopefully this will generate some more attention and other users will start reading those articles too.

After the end of the Patronage Week, I would like to introduce the respective blogger to the community in a separate article and report about his or her work.

A few more things

  • You can nominate every writer who doesn't usually get a high post reward. As written above let's consider users who's last 10 articles get an average of not more than 15 SCR. And to motivate everyone to join the nomination round I am planning on upvoting comments, which tell me why you are thinking that a particular user deserves being supported by me. And in addition, the comment which nominates this round’s pick FIRST, will get a full 100% upvote from me.
  • And I also need the nominees to be writing in a language I can understand, this will be in English or if you are really cool also in German. Unfortunately other languages can't be considered.
  • To avoid that those articles only consist of a few pictures and link but no substantial content I explicitly reserve the right to reduce the value of my upvote. I want to encourage everyone to stick to level of quality which we all want to see here at Scorum.
  • Since the question came up before: YES, you can also vote for the same user as someone before you. As more nominations somebody get as more likely is the chance this user will be on top at the end.
  • It would be great to see the names of writers whose post don't usually get much attention and aren't visited so much. I know there are many outside who really try to bring something to Scorum but who aren't so successful yet. After starting it can be challenging and it might not feel very encouraging, when our post seem to be lost in the big Scorum nirvana.
  • As I mentioned before, the weekly benefiaciary will not only be supported by me. @dexpartacus has commited himself to follow my lead and to also about the chosen Scorum member. We are growing strong! Thanks a lot!

Some final words:

I am still at a very special home away from home and enjoying being surrounded by some great people who take up most of my attention. Therefor I am pretty much behind with writing about some of the events I wanted to inform you.

Fortunately I am still finding enough time for reading through some of your articles and to assist this week's beneficiary. I am glad that the rough waves which seemed to shake the Scorum community have calmed down a little bit and everyone is minding its own business.

And I am glad to see some new initiatives coming up, aiming for both the bloggers and the betters between us. Hopefully we will be able to teach the Scorum gospel to a wide range of people to tell them of this great place and opportunity.

Myself as well, I trying to use spread the word wherever I see a chance to invite some promising people, always hoping that our still pretty small community will eventually grow beyond our imagination. It may take a while and for sure some effort, but someday we should be able to reap what we saw.

That's why I will continue with what I have started here at Scorum Patronage, and I hope for some great participation this week. Without you, we are nothing, so let's choose a worthy writer all together.

Of course I am always open for any suggestions and for constructive criticism. Just empty your heart and let me know in the comments or in the Scorum Patronage channels which I'm running on the I am Scorum Discord server. That is also the place were you can find recent announcements and nominations and were you will have a chance to discuss any other problems. And of course it will be also just the right place to have a nice chat.

I am looking forward to hearing from all of you soon, and to checking out some of the writers you are going to nominate.

Catch you guys later...

Love and Respect !
