Hey, few questions:

  1. Contest for supporters starts every week?
  2. Do I understand correctly that I can enter any number of contests at any time in a row?
  1. Now it starts when current mainnet validators vote for it. It can be started periodically, but not exactly every week.

  2. Not sure I get what you mean

Deadline Extension Proposal

The original contest (named below) ran from June 10 to June 15, 2020 and passed at more than 50% saying “Yes”; however, the contest was never moved to “Contests” and to this day is still in limbo on the “Proposals” list.

For this reason, obviously none of the participants had a chance to make their submissions. This is not fair to the participants.

In light of this, the current extension proposal asks that the contest dates be extended until:

June 25, 2020, 12:00 PM UTC, 2:00 PM CET.

@XLR25t I think the name of the Arabian and Brazil telegram groups are wrong. the word “Free” have been translated into “gratuito” and " مجاني"


That is correct. In the case of Free TON, free = uninhibited, uncontrolled, unrestricted, unobstructed, etc. Not free as in complimentary or gratis. That being said, I do not know Portuguese or Arabic, so who am I to say. :wink:

still running a validator node and trying to be active and help people in @validators_ru tg channel.

tg nickname @bakarapara

p.s. not sure if i can participate in every new iteration of this contest. :slight_smile: if not this should be reflected in rules i guess.

  1. If we want to translate the word “Free” , so we should do it in other group names also, include : Russian , Chinese , Indian , Ukrainian , Iranian , Turkish , Germany , Italian !
    but now they have not translated the word “Free” because they thought it is part of the branding not an adjective for TON. is it ?
  2. translating the word “Free” will lead to the name resemble so much to scam projects. so we should avoid it.
  3. currently in both Arabic and Potuguese the current translation here means “complimentary or gratis” , I’m 99% sure.
    but generally as @Mitja one time said “it is FreeTON like freedom”. I think it should be part of the brand not as adjective for TON. IMHO


As for the aforementioned contest period (from May 28, 2020) and to the present date (June 21, 2020, the contest deadline is June 25) I was active in FreeTON Telegram groups while providing support, striving to help and share some knowledge; there were some private Telegram dialogs with the group members for the same purpose too. The groups are listed below with the screenshots from the respective Combot stats pages, which are showing my activity:

In the future, I’m planning to continue my participation in the aforementioned Telegram groups and take my part in “decentralized support” process.

For the proof of owning the Telegram account screenshotted above, I can provide the following: I’ve placed my forum account username (“Renoul”) to the “about” field of my Telegram account with nickname @todiav.


In the period from May 28 to June 9, I helped with the following tasks:

1. Telegram support.

Help with questions and answers. Spam moderation. Posting.

2. Help with Livestreaming:

Added time frames, help with answers, stream management

3. Help with posting

4. Forum support

Thank you for your attention!


Hello there!

My attention has been drawn to this page by one of fellow community members with a request to post a few words about my project-related activities.

So, here they are.

Aside from being occasionally active on the forum and more frequently active in Validators Chat (Eng), I’m developing and promoting tools for Validator’s routine automation and productivity gain which I consider my the most significant contribution.
I do it in spite of that it potentially undermines my competitive advantage in contests, since I feel that establishing reliable and productive network is now more important.

P.S. My name is present on related combot status page screenshots posted by guys above, so I decided not to flood the thread.

Hello, I am going to participate in this contest from a different point of view.

As you know, one of the major goals of Free TON is to establish a decentralized community all over the world. I, as creator of Iranian Free TON community on Telegram (, have tried my best to promote Free TON in my country, as a local supporter, in the period from May 28 to June 9. I was present in many Iranian crypto related Telegram groups in order to support interested Iranian users and share correct information about Free TON.

The reasons for my good performance are briefly listed below:

1- Highest number of telegram group members among all local groups (such as Spain, France, China, …). Please see the number of members for all local groups below *:


*Note that the information is gathered at 22 June 2020 UTC 5:15 PM.

2- Highest number of telegram group online members among all local groups (such as Spain, France, China, …). Please see the number of online members for all local groups below**:


**Note that the information is gathered at 22 June 2020 UTC 5:50 PM.

A high number of online members could indicate that a group benefits of active and real (not fake) members.

You can see, at a glance, “number of members” and “number of online members” of Free TON local groups below:

I was helping people in the Telegram groups directly related to FreeTON: Free TON.Community, Free TON.Community_RU and Secret TON Surf Testing from May 25 to June 9.

I was doing some tasks to help the community: sharing my knowledge about the network as far as it goes, providing a discussion, answering to people’s questions both in English and Russian and helping them to install and navigate in the testing of TON Surf app. Basically, making moderators and administrators lives a bit easier.

Here’s a couple of screenshots from Combot with statistics, where my account is shown with a pink outline. Unfortunately, due to a bug in Combot that doesn’t allow me to check Free TON.Community group statistics(it says that the group is private), I had to “borrow” a second screenshot from Roman_D’s post, I hope that’s not critical.

I can’t post more than one picture in my post(it says that I’m a new user), so here’s a link to combot statistics private gallery:

I’m also going to provide a bunch of examples of my help in screenshots below both from group messages and DMs, for the sake of anonymity I’ve blurred out the names and profile pictures in DMs, I think that was a right thing to do and I’m thinking you can understand that.
To prove that it’s my Telegram account and no one else’s, there’s 2 versions of screenshots: some of them are from PC and some from my phone, also you can easily check my telegram tag here on the forum in my profile.
Here’s a link to the private gallery:

I’m looking forward to help more people from Free TON community in the future and help in growing it further. Thanks.



I’ve my share to support development for TON blockchain:
streamlined, actualized and promoted developer tools documentation;
shared hands-on TON dev experience with the developer community in chats;
Prepared materials to conduct the first smart-contract workshop for TON.

If you see value in this, please support Free TON development!

Best regards,


I make my contribution to helping our community.
I am not the most frequent responder, so I can not boast of a large number of messages.
But there are interesting points, for example, help in catching error 1006.

I am mainly active in the testing group.

I wrote an important topic that interested many about the continuation of the promotion contest.
