Contest posters: title format should be contest name (end date, exclusions if any)

I have a suggestion that I posed to the Suggestions forum. But wanted to post it here as well to try to get contest posters to use this title format.

If we include the frequency of entering, as well as the end date, it will really help us find the daily contests.

Thanks to TheGame for suggesting this format, which I like:

[DAILY] Campbell's Veggies Instant Win Contest (ends Mar. 31)

The original thread is here


Examples of other frequencies that we would use would be [WEEKLY], [MONTHLY], [10 ENTRIES], [ONE TIME], etc.

Comments appreciated.

Oct 31/06: title edited to reflect we do not need the frequencies in the title anymore, since we now have the ability to categorize the contests by frequency. Thanks Derek for this change!

ESPECIALLY the # of times entries are allowed. That's the #1 thing I look for.

I agree and I think this should be a rule in the Contests forum.

I again want to suggest that there should be a sticky for winners to post they won and a link to the thread instead of bumping really old threads.

I think the expiry date is more important ;)

It's also fascinating how 2 kids from different parents looked identical and both played the role of baby michelle on full house and now 20 some years later, they still look identical.

I will keep my post the same. I always post the name of the contest and everything else inside. It;s a cleaning look then all the (). Don't like it.

I do agree no titles like "Win a Trip to-------" or "Win a NEW CAR" and just the link inside. That is crazy :!: :!:

My posts are with the name and the main rules. People are just lazy and don't read the rules. I always read the rules on the main Sweeps site and other people should do that 2 on any contest they enter.

May I also suggest people putting the official name of the contest, including the sponser name, instead of the generic "win a trip" type.
Also, if there's space, a short description of the prize would help, especially for websites that offer many contests...
