Welcome to user made Contests! Here is where our users of the forum may hold contest for other users to participate in. Often contest are creative and fun to enter. Almost all contest have prizes and are often good ones.
If you have never held a contest before, you should probably get some help hosting it. Please bear in mind this is still a small forum and likely wont get huge. The number of participants may be low, but it is better then none.
Here is a simple forum that is not required
, but is good enough to get you started with your contest.Overview: ~ Brief paragraph on contest, what it is, and other info that may be needed.Objective:
~ Once again go over the goal of the contest. Be sure to be descriptive as possible. If it is a template challenge please be sure to have a template ready and a link to it. (If you do not know how to do this, please refer to the Master Help Thread FAQ section HERE.
~ Include the rules to your contest. A rule should be descriptive as well to prevent any confusion. Include max number of entires, rules on template, due date, ECT.References: ~ This part is optional. You may include references to what you are making. Like say color wise. If you want the entires to be even more specific.. this is the best way to do it. This may not make sense to some but if you take a look at Maxis challenges, you should know exactly what I mean.
Remember to follow the rules and guidelines and respect the hosts decisions on the contests.
