Hive Power Up Month - Feedback from day 3

in #hivebuzzlast year (edited)

The first Hive Power Up Month of the year has now been running for a bit more than 3 days. Let's see how things have been going so far.

For those who missed it, you can read the challenge announcement here.

Substantial start and slow decline

As usual, the Power Up Month started with a bang thanks to its Power Up Day counterpart. Indeed, no less than 671 users took part on this first day of the challenge, making all participants equally eligible for the PUM.

And as usual, it is right after that things start to get tough because you must not forget to post, configure the payment method at 100% Hive Power, or do a power-up manually.

Let's see this with a graph:

If we take day 2 as a baseline of users who have signed up to PUM, we see that we have already lost 54 users in a single day.

Hard to stay committed but worth it

We have already said: this challenge is merciless and the slightest mistake is fatal. But the delegation from Hive Power that awaits those who will stay engaged until the end is worth it.

There are still over 27 days left. Hang on!

I'm down for PUM Jan 2022 - here we go!

Go @tdctunes, go!

I can do it I can do it I can do it!


Wow... I was on the list, ha.
Thanks! Have a !PIZZA

Hehe, congrats. 27 days to go! 😅

Oh that's nice. I'll try to do this in the next few day. Exciting 😁
Thanks for the mention BTW!

You're welcome @davdiprossimo. See you at the finish line!

I just read about PUM… and it’s quite a challenge…
Will take it into account for February, too bad I didn’t post on Jan 2nd 😅😅😅

Sorry to read you left us. You can still participate to train yourself 😉
See you in February!

Whoa I was on the list am so happy

Congrats @victorbch

OwO It's already starting! GO~ 27 days again ><

And none to be missed! 😅

I am still participating. I almost forgot yesterday. Too bad it is not possible to do a recurring power up like recurring transfer.

Hmm... that wouldn't be funny at all and make your future badge meritless 😏

I want the badge, so I'm aiming for a daily power up. Some of my posts are via a dapp that doesn't have a 100% HP option and I may not post every day. We shall have to see if I can remember to do it every time.

Throw that app or kick its developer's ass! 😏

I'll have a word :)

Still kicking it. Good, as I've even set a reminder for a daily power up. :)

Those reminders shall be your savior. Good luck @alexvan

Let's see if it is turning into a habit. If yes, I have a good one developed.

I will succeed this time!

Please continue to post these motivational boosters 😄!

We will do that! We wish you success!

Thank you for this! You guys are awesome!


Thank you @pogier

I assume this is a every month thing? I'll be looking forward to February!

Yes, the PUM challenge is now every month. See you next month ;)

The month has just begun but I'm in with the PUM. I hope I don't miss any day ;)

We are full of hope too @coquicoin

I did small powerups but 100 percent of my earning but even my 100 percent earning is not equal to 10 hive

It's not a problem if your reward on a post is less than 10HP or 1HP as long as you set the mode to 100% Hive Power

okay, then I will make all the posts with 100% powerups. Thanks for the information

Hey @hivebuzz, here is a little bit of BEER from @steevc for you. Enjoy it!

Learn how to earn FREE BEER each day by staking your BEER.

Yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaayyyyyy 💃💃💃
I made it to the list…

Let’s do this 😊

Wow, espero estar atenta para el próximo es y participar! 😀

Ciertamente, te estamos esperando allí.

Good I am still in the running, I was not sure about day two, but am positive about today. Time will pass quickly.

Cheering for you all, we can do this!💪

Thanks for the early update, it's good to see I'm still in the list.
I have no idea how possible it is, but any plan to maybe include a visual of some sorts on to check if a user is still in the PUM race?

We are working on it 😅

Great, looking forward to it!

Im not entirely sure about that side of things, are 100% powerup posts that uncommon generaly speaking that itd shake out that way that quickly? In any event, lets go :)

Day 5 incoming! And alarms are set to make sure i dont forget
Slice on me !PIZZA

Game on!

I forgot the PUD, will really aim for PUM!!!!

This beginning of the month I was inattentive, the festivities kept me disconnected from the hive these days and I ended up missing the PUM.

I'll be waiting for next month, strength for the people who are participating!

Good luck to all particupants

I powered up some hive on the 2nd but it perhaps wasn’t enough. Haven’t used the power up option on my posts yet. Is it best to wait till February?

Shall follow progress this month, still learning the ropes here.

May I know if you count for the PUM Challenge published posts that have beneficiaries set to another Hive account (to another typical Hive user, to bots such as, or burned through @null) as long as the Power Up Reward is set to 100% Reward Powered Up? 🤔 Thanks in advance for your answer! 😄

Anyway, please feel free to tag me every time you publish a post about the Hive Power Up Month Challenges! 🤗


Whoa am on the list,so happy 😊

Congrats @victorbch

I think I already blew it. It looks like one of my posts got reset from 100% to 50/50 despite double-checking all the parameters. No idea how that happened though.

I made to the list power up!!

Congrats @jbtc19warrior
