oh.. I have another idea
not sure how easy it would be to implement, but what if the mods could verify contests
umm... it's pretty clear that a contest is fake when it is worth $20,000 for a header...
for example, if a mod has seen a contest and decided it is real, they can change the icon beside the thread...
would mean that it has been verified...
or, if that would be to farfetched, they could just post in the thread ~contest varified~
if this idea has any chance, then I suppose
- moderaters reserve the right to verify or close contests
should be added to the list
