How do I start a contest?
You choose a theme and make a topic about it.
It is really easy. Like @BB-Box said: just choose a theme, make a topic with some basic information about rules, prizes, organization etc. Then you are basically done.
I am not going to repeat what others have said, but as a reference it is a good idea to check out some other contests… so you can get a feel for the types of contests we have here. That way a) you won’t make a duplicate of another contest, and b) you will understand how to structure your contest better!
Yeah, I was going to say that as well. I agree!
Ok, so I just create a topic? There’s nothing else I really have to do to make it official?
