    I think that contest participation should have the same qualifiers in regards to length of membership, post count and likes as it is in the classifieds. Just my :2c: .

    There's just something about people who just join the site to enter a contest and then leaves without any contribution to the site whatsoever that rubs me the wrong way.

    Contests are a great perk for active members here and I think it should be considered as such.

    The Trophy Contests section seemed to work well for @PhotoRider 's contests. We can expand on that and have multiple sections each with different trophy count requirements. We can brainstorm the levels here. For example.

    Level 1 - 25 points required (7,631 members have this many points)
    Level 2 - 100 points required (2,030 members have this many points)
    Level 3 - 200 points required (93 members have this many points)

    Available trophies and their point values are viewable here. At some point I'd like to create some more, maybe we can hold a contest to come up with some. :)

    My two cents - @vtac suggest trophy points to ensure contest members actually contributed to the forum since it was a good metric. I think it worked very well and happy it was done that way.

    There was some who didn't understand what "trophy" meant so some education would help, maybe its there, I never looked since it was intuitive to me.

    I do like the break down on levels.
