The HiveBuzz team wishes you all a happy and pleasant New Year. May joy and love flood your life and that of your loved ones.

And to close the year which has just passed, we invite you to read our latest activity report.

What did we do since our last report?

Preparing and participating in HiveFest⁵

Most of our time has been taken up by the must-see event of the year: HiveFest⁵.

As usual, we planned to organize activities during this event in order to promote the meeting between the participants. But surprisingly, we had to realize that this is much more difficult to organize in a virtual world than in real life.

Despite the excellent collaboration with @roelandp, his extreme availability and his good will, the many ideas that we wanted to implement have regularly met with a no-go, mainly because of the technical constraints of the AltspaceVR environment. And it is not for lack of trying together to implement them. It probably doesn't sound like it, but it was extremely time-consuming.

A great first too, we were able to have Hivebuzz participate in "person" during the event, which pleasantly surprised many.

For this occasion, we have made multiple adaptations to our website and had also created several goodies that nostalgic people can still afford via our shop.

New badges

No less than 4 new badges have been generated lately:

Saint-Nicolas badge Beginning of December is a time eagerly awaited in some European countries by all young (and old) children. It's time for Saint Nicholas to bring gifts and ... a badge!

HiveFest⁵ attendee badge Another moment eagerly awaited by many Hivers: HiveFest. Despite the technical challenges, we were pleased to offer this badge to 194 participants.

HiveFest⁵ Meetings Contest badge Yet another badge that could be obtained during HiveFest and that 45 people now display on their board.

Christmas badge And to end the year on a high note, a badge that you could give to several of your friends. A beautiful illustration of the concepts of community and sharing on the occasion of Christmas.

Power up Day - January 1st edition

To extend this idea of sharing and start the year with a bang, we have added an ingredient to the now famous Power Up Day: Hive Power delegations to the most regular and generous participants.

The power Up day which takes place the first of each month is now an event eagerly awaited by a growing number of Hivers.

While many of us will no doubt be quite tired of the family celebrations the night before, January 1st will be no exception. Therefore, you have a few hours left to perform your Power-Up and perhaps obtain a Hive Power delegation from HiveBuzz!

All the information about it can be found in this post.

Support our proposal for 2021

The proposal that allowed us to finance our project expired early this morning at the same time as we left 2020. Many of you have supported us for the last months and we are extremely grateful to you.

If you have not yet done so and if you want us to continue our work of gamification of the Hive platform, please support our new proposal for the year 2021!

Thank you all and have a Happy New Year!

The Hivebuzz Team
