I'm planning a contest after the 1st of the year.... which I'm told is a good way to attract and/or keep members. Do y'all agree??

Also, I'd appreciate some feedback on what sorts of contests y'all found work... and/or which contests y'all found don't work!!

Any thoughts on prizes would appreciated too!!! lol Currently, the prize pacakge includes, free hosting, free domain name, computer mag subscription.... other ideas??

Many thanks in advance!
