OK guys, we already have a few prizes lined up... now we need to know what kind of competitions we can run. Any ideas?
that's a good question. if i could ever stop being lazy and learn how to dev for Android, i'd suggest that (best app contest).
what about best photo contest?
whatever the contest is, it should involve using a Droid.
i honestly can't think of anything specific, short of developing apps, which would eliminate a ton of people. most forums i participate on have something specific that makes these types of things easier.
the only thing i can think of for this site is the "post in the thread, random drawing" type submission. and with legal issues with having contests open to the public, etc., that might be the best solution.
i think that's what HoFo does.
Oh and as far as prizes go, if you got a few items that you know people will want, you can spread it out over a couple weeks and the first ever winner picks what they want out of what you have, then the next week (or whenever) picks what they want out of whatever you have... and then it dwindles down. They do that on the radio station I listen to (G105.1) with purses, they call it Pick Your Purse, but of course they just have the nth caller as a winner each day at certain hours.
