I simply do not receive enough liquid rewards to participate. I do get over 1 HIVE a day in curation rewards, but those rewards are automatically powered up. With the recent price increase, (basically at the $0.50 level), liquid rewards pretty much dried up for any post. Dollar wise I may get more on the few post I make, but I get a lot lot less HIVE.
With curation being auto powered up (23.658), my vote power continues to increase thus my curation rewards. If it were not auto powered up then I might be tempted to ship some of it to Hive-Engine so the auto power up for myself is good.
Still one day I may be able to get that badge, like the 1000 HP level Bee Badge, it is just temporarily out of reach.
