    best forum contests?

    what type of contests have you had on your forum?

    i've had contests to win DVD,CDs ect.. all legal mind you.

    i want to try a posting contest,the member with the best amount of posts in a month wins.. or something like that.

    Posting contests will almost always bring spam while the contest is taking place and you will then return to what your forums were before the contes - typically

    I recommend doing something creative...like member of the month, or perhaps a random raffle

    I've had so many contests! Currently we're hosting our biggest yet and it's very popular.....we've given away over $2,000 worth of prizes in the last year and everyone loves it Try and partner with other sites for donations etc.

    I think something better than contests is a shop in your forum.

    Even that I had a lot of valuable prizes in my contests when I added the shop more people started to sign up to the forum, and the allready registered members made more posts.

    Of course if you implement this you have to give away valuable stuff in your forum's topic. For examle in my webmaster community, members can use the shop to get pr 5 links, cpm and cpc ads.

    I would highly recommend something like this also (a shop with points), and wish I could do the same for my forums, but nobody has made a good mod for vB 3.5 yet
