Why is the title important?
Summarise the prize details in the Contest Title rather than the contest name. It is more important for viewers to see what they can win rather than the contest sponsors. The Contest Title also gets picked up in several other places including our daily summary of contests so another reason to show the prize. For example: "Win a dream vacation".
Why add an image?
Add a picture or banner for the contest to give it a visual connection. If there is no image on the contest page, you can always Google the description of the image. For example "photo beach".

Probably Download unless you created a special folder for pics.Be sure to go back to your "manage" option and then select "Contest" again to check to see if the right photo loaded.

Why add Rules and Regulations
Add the Rules and Regulations as a courtesy to other members to save them the trouble. Just copy and paste the rules and regulations in the comment box. It does not take long!
Why is tagging important?
It is good to add relevant words like "trip", "entertainment", "music", "cruise" etc. Please be sure to also add company, product or brand names like Avis, Sony, Coke, Pepsi, Ford etc. and names the retailer ("Canadian Tire" or "Shoppers Drug Mart"). This helps people when they search to see if the contest is already posted on Saveland.ca. Adding the right names and key tag words will also improve the ability of search engines and that is how people will find your contest on Saveland.ca.
When to vote Thumbs Down?
Some suggestions about when it is appropriate to vote with a thumbs down: Usually you would only do it to show that the contest is not working, hard to enter or some other problem with the contest. If you do have a problem with a contest, it would be helpful to leave your comments for the rest of the members, rather than vote Thumbs Down. If you are in one Province and you see contest only open in a different Province, it would NOT be a reason to vote down. Also you are not getting any points when you vote it down so optically it looks as if you are being unreasonably negative and penalising the member that uploaded the contest.
