    forum contests
    Anyone have experience running various types of contests on their site(s) / forum(s)? I currently have an advertiser on one of my site that likes me to do a raffle almost once a month & they supply the prizes... they're wanting to do something besides drawing a random member now, even though I had a custom script made that enables me to pick x # of people w/ more than y # of posts or even find out who posted post # z ...I'm already planning on giving something away for post # 50,000, so I'd like to give him some other ideas besides those.... anyone?
    (it is an automotive web site if that helps)
    Thanks!

    Here's some ideas:

    Best restored car (contestant must show before/after pix)
    Best "pimped-out" ride (must show pix)
    Most Celicas currently owned
    Most fanatical car nut (Looking for something extreme here, like owning literally 10,000 Celica-branded marketing tie-in items, or even getting a tattoo of their car's logo)

    Is it your political site in your sig?

    If so maybe have a funny picture of a politican, have people submit what the caption should say.
    Then let everyone vote for which they like the best.

    Thanks for the ideas! ...it would be nice for the contest to also be a way to reward the more active members... perhaps I'll bring back the scavenger hunt I did on another site... anyone ever do something along those lines that worked out well?

    oh, and it's not for the political site or the celica site... it's a newer car, so the restoration wouldn't work out so well, and I'm sure I could get some good submissions for the pimped out ride, but then again, perhaps not the quantity I'd need for a good contest... hmmmmmmm
