    Recent contests:
    1.Number of posts : within target date ;

    Posts such as "thank you" " " you are welcome"
    "try gmt" and other one liners also counted .
    Users /participants were glued to the
    Forum to give a response !.


    2. Article on any subject minimum 300 words.
    ( No copy/paste job allowed )
    I won Rs 300/= for three articles and donated to Charity.

    Say you announce the contest at 1300 PM and entries close
    at 1400 PM or 2100PM. same day.

    3. Or specify a subject for articles within a short time frame.

    etc.

    There was a highest poster contest. I think that will help people stick to the forum and respond immediately. Second is the article writing contest where only a few participated. It ended as there was a change in ownership.

    that will lead to ultra spam and no new content. That IMO should be avoided.
