    So we've started having a number of contests and giveaways recently. Should we have a new forum topic for these under the 'Other Discussions' section? Or maybe have an entirely new section?

    (I'm not going to add a poll for 'New Topic or New Section?'. The mods can decide on that.)

    Some recent contests that we've had:

    These are spread out over different forums. It will be nice to have them all in one place. The big and important ones like Tempmas, Homebrew Bounty, etc. can be stickied.

    What do you guys think?

    I don't think it is needed, but it would be helpful.

    Is no one interested in this? [​IMG]

    If we do end up creating a new forum/section/whatever, I'll probably do a giveaway of my own. I have a couple of unused Club Nintendo PINs (USA) lying around... [​IMG]

    sounds fine to me but it can't be an entirely new section, just a new sub-forum or something

    We used to have a contests and polls section, but it was so underused and misused that it was gotten rid of. This wasn't too long ago either.

    You linked to nine contests, that's not nearly enough to justify a new section. At the moment user created contests can go in general off topic and the trading (giving) forum, and official GBAtemp competitions go in GBAtemp and scene news. I think that is adequate personally.

    +1 I don't think it is justified.
