Theme Contest Archives
Article © MAIL User:

Since early 2007, M.A.I.L. has been running theme contests in the Gallery Discussion Forum. Each contest typically runs for 15 weeks. One week of brainstorming ideas takes place, and any seconded ideas are put to a vote. Voting for the contest category takes another week. After a topic is chosen, anyone who wishes to participate has 12 weeks to create one or more entries for the contest. Finally when those 12 weeks come to an end a vote takes place and the winner of the contest is awarded a badge, which is a shield with the contest number on it, which they can optionally display under their user name on the Forum.
