It would keep things timely, and light hearted! I would volunteer as a judge...or am I just spitting into the wind?
    Starting to sound like Big Brother here.

    Of course contests aren't on a level playing field. What deach would pick and what I would pick are probably two different choices. Same for anybody. Guidelines are fine and good. Making people follow them are a whole different story.

    I hope this isn't about mine man..

    I know it sucks I don't have prizes or anything.. I just thought it be cool to get a UU member to get a banner up for us..

    I do have 2 contests in my head that follow with what you define a contest as.. One I think could be really freaking fun if it's done correctly. I just don't have the funds to get prizes for it.. yet.

    That being said, as soon as I do get some sort of prizes.. I will be posting it, but not really sure how soon that'll be. I love UU and don't want to make it seem like I'm trying to get a banner cheaply or something.. I'm just broke.

    I made this list because there are so many "contests" running now. I thought it would be a helpful checklist for contest holders.

    This list is compiled from my experiences of contests and entering contests.

    A good example of how to run a contest - any official UU contest.

    I think mine meets all of that criteria - with exception of the duration but I explained the reasoning behind that when I started the contest. I don't THINK i'm doing anything wrong... but i'm sure someone would tell me if I was.

    Like Deach said - it's just a helpful checklist...he's not making "RULES" for running a contest. Your contest has been so much fun - don't worry about it!

    And I bet the prize would be something awesome, like... a pony, with spots shaped like ukuleles!
    I want that pony!

    I can't wait to put together an entry for your contest when I get back from vacation. Awesome stuff.

    I'm now inspired to hold a contest. A good one, hopefully.

    Still lusting after a Lava Flea and someday, a tenor, maybe?
