Please clear any contest through Octavian
Contests are a fun way to engage the community. If you are thinking of running a contest please be mindful of the following:
You MUST geekmail the Community Manager with the subject line "CONTEST" to receive permission before running any contest on the site to ensure it conforms to the site rules. Your contest is likely to be approved as long as the contest is not promotional or you are not otherwise personally benefiting from it.
Requiring users to give a thumb to a geeklist, thread, or similar content as part of participating in the contest or in return for any other compensation is not allowed.
Failure to meet these requirements may result in the contest being deleted without warning.
