And will the blog have UGC? It might be a great way to le the community use the platform to share their thoughts on the web.

Are any rewards planned for posting, liking and commenting?

Hi. I believe that 30 articles treshold is too high. Even official blog on Medium has just 15 articles.

Seven days for such time consuming thing like blog with 30+ articles is not enough.

Hi! It’s kinda diffirent. We can fully support it. Thank you!

Interesting proposal !

Good afternoon! Great contest.
I also want to note that 7 days to create a block and articles for it is incredibly short. At least 14 or even 21 days needed. It would be nice if you change the description. Thanks!

What is the current status of discussion for this contest?

The creation of the blog (design and technologies) should be a separate task.

Content and maintenance - different tasks.

In this case the best design and tech are picked by the jury, all the source files are supplied to the content team - and they work with it.

The content for submissions can be a copy from public sources (wiki, medium, social media) in order to show that the blog looks and reads nicely.

Please, clarify on these issues.

Hi, Mr.First! This contest is just proposal. Dates might be changed at any time. As our team answered in chat, we don’t have keys to move this contest to active contests.

Hi, Michael! The amount in these competition is not small and it is aimed not only at developing, but also at maintaining the blog. Otherwise, why do we need such a competition if the community is not involved in maintaining their product?

We moved old articles from the blog on Medium primarily for indexing the site (SEO), its visibility in search engines. As for copy-paste, it is permissible to show that the blog is working and it is working properly.

Creating a blog and running it - are two completely different tasks. This is why, these two things should be separated into different contests.

Original posts will be higher in search results based on algorithms. Copying content as is might lead to ban. FYI.

Please, add this to the original proposal that text might not be unique.

If there are no obvious objections on your part, please change the time of the contest to 2 weeks.
And you need to fix it so that you don’t lose it. The extension of the competition period is quite justified, several people have asked for it. For my part, if the contest is accepted, I’m going to provide high-quality work, both on blog design and content. 2 weeks is the minimum required for this.Thank you!

By analogy Wiki contest you can run WordPress and write articles as many as you can. Free TON don’t need design only, this is a blog contest.

No. Firstly we made an archive to not losr good artciles. Secondly, people are writing their own content and our team too.

Goog day! I understand that the start date of the contest may change, that’s not the question.

The question is the time for the contest 7 days that was specified - very little for high-quality work. I need to install and setup blog, make design work, and write 30 articles for it - 14 days is the minimum time for the contest, and other participants in the discussion agree to this.

I suggest that you record this in the terms of the contest, if no one has any objections.

ThankYou

After discussion, we have added this suggestion. Thank you for your comments!

Is it allowed to write blog as a narrator, for example, “I tried to participate in Contests…” or “The first time I heard about Free TON…” ?
