Contest Rules - BE SURE TO READ THIS BEFORE YOU POST YOUR CONTEST. IF THEY DO NOT FOLLOW THESE GUIDELINES, YOUR CONTEST WILL BE DELETED!

(credits to the Bearville Insider forum as I got pretty much all these contest rules from them.)

Please make sure you read through the rules thoroughly before posting any contests. As stated in the title, if your contest do not follow these guidelines, your topic will be deleted and you will not be able to post another 'til the next week. So make sure you pay attention!

1.) There may only be 3 contests PER WEEK. We don't want these forums to be crowded so we have to limit them to at least 3. Date slots and upcoming approved contests can be found here:

2.) Each contest will run for one week and one day. All contests will be posted on Sunday and will end the following Sunday no later than 2:00 pm (EST). Contest host must post the winner on or before Monday after the contest has closed.

3.) ALL contests MUST be approved. To get it approved, send me a PM including the following:
must include the following:

a. Type of contest:
b. The date slot you would like to reserve for your contest:
c. The prizes you will be offering(if any):  they must be specific prizes.


4.) Hosts will post their own contest thread. The type of contest and the end date must be announced in the thread title. All necessary information must be included in the original post - Type of Contest, Rules, Prizes, Dates.

5.) Contests cannot be a question. Question contests such as "What is my favorite flavor poptart?" are not allowed. They open the possibility of no one guessing correctly and no one winning. There must be a winner for every contest. (Sadly we cannot just enjoy the fun of naming all those flavors.)

6.) New threads in the contest section can only be started by approved members. The host cannot create their contest thread until Saturday night, after 6PM EST, the night before their contest begins.

7.) Contests Hosts are responsible for maintaining their own threads. This includes any/all rules or guidelines for their own contests. Host is also responsible to keep track of the posts/entries in their thread and to make sure their rules have been followed. For example: If you create a rule that only the color purple is allowed in a painting contest  then you must make sure that no-one has used a different color. Also hosts must stick to their original rules, you may not change rules half way through the contest, since it’s not fair to members who already entered. So think carefully about what is or is not allowed before you create your thread.

8.) Contest/Winners Thread Etiquette. Any posts on contest threads OR winners' threads that are deemed rude or inappropriate will be immediately deleted. If we see a particular member repeatedly posting these kind of comments, we will send you a pm. It is simply not fair to the contest hosts who have a hard enough time already, choosing a winner or 3 or 4 out of SO many awesome choices. It basically comes down to a personal choice for the host and should not be questioned by others. It is after all their contest, their prizes...

9.) If you lose your pm ability before your contest date, you will be removed from the list. This means that if you do not have pm ability on the day your contest is scheduled to start, you will not be allowed to host. You must have pm ability in order to host a contest.

Breaking ANY of the rules will result in having your contest deleted or privileges suspended or revoked.
