Hello Hivers and LMACians!
The LMAC reports back from its summer break! ☀️
We hope you all had some enjoyable and relaxing weeks and are now as eager as we are to get creative again! The start of a new season of Let's Make A Collage is just around the corner and will bring quite a few exciting changes and additions to our vibrant community.
First of all, we were absolutely blown away by the amazing participation in our summer initiative Let's Build the LMAC Image Library (LIL). In the past six weeks our community library received hundreds of contributions with well over 1500 images from Hivers inside and outside of our community. Until the start of our next season all contributions will have added round about 800 HIVE into our community prize pool! This outstanding result will allow us to keep our weekly prizes at very attractive levels for many rounds to come. We decided to divide the proceeds from the LIL equally over the next 20 rounds of LMAC which will add an extra bonus of ~40 HIVE per contest round.
And what many of you will have anticipated already, yes, the LIL is here to stay! So please keep your contributions coming and help us growing the LIL into the best blockchain-anchored public domain image library of the Web 3.0! Powered by Hive.
With this additional and continuous inflow to our community prize pool, the LMAC is now well set to run and grow in a self-sustained manner. Also, thanks to our generous ⚪️Silver and 🟠Bronze delegators the @lmac account meanwhile receives another ~ 7-10 HIVE each week in curation rewards which will enter the community prize pool as well. Therefore, the 50 HIVE subsidy which the LMAC contest received each week from @shaka's own funds will be halted with the new season. Instead all author rewards for the LMAC announcements posted on the @shaka account (New Challenge, Final Poll, Winner Announcement) will be allocated 100% to the new @lmac-operations account! In the future, proceeds which accrue on the @lmac-operations account will be used to fund activities which are critical for the LMAC (Development, Moderation, Design) but also used to build reserves to cover future expenses which the further advancement of the LMACsphere will require.
Here an outlook on a few more priorities and changes which we will introduce with the new season. 👉 Please note what we expect from LMAC creators and LIL contributors going forward:
- The LIL will stand at the center of the new LMAC season! All LMACians are highly encouraged to use LIL assets in their collages and will receive additional support for doing so.
- For each LIL-asset used, the corresponding LIL-contributors are expected to be added as 2% beneficiary each in the respective LMAC entry!
- In turn, collages using LIL-assets will be supported with a higher voting weight by our trail!
- For better transparency, we ask our community to use the @lmac account instead of the @hive-174695 account as a 20% beneficiary in their LMAC and LIL contributions from now on.
- Setting the @lmac account as 20% beneficiary will be required both in LMAC and LIL contributions in order to receive support by our community trail AND to win prizes in the LMAC competition! 100% of the proceeds which arrive on the @lmac account will go into the community pool.
And now, dust off your paintbrushes already, charge your pixel throwers, rally your friends and networks, and get ready for the start of the new LMAC season next Thursday!
We can't wait to see what you all will conjure up on our screens when it's LMAC time again :star2:
Your LMAC Team
