Coming soon: Add your own Contests

We’ve got quite a few people using LookContests.com on a daily basis these days, so I thought this might be a good time to write about the next steps for the site.

First and foremost, I’m making changes that will allow you to add contests that aren’t already included. As you probably know, the contests that are listed on LookContests.com all come from our partner site, ContestCanada.net. They’ve got pretty thorough coverage of the Canadian contest landscape, but they don’t find everything. So, in the future, if you know of a contest that isn’t included in our listings, you’ll be able to add it.

To make adding them even easier, I’ve been working on a toolbar. The toolbar will make it very easy to submit contests that you come across when you’re browsing. It will also have a button that will allow you to quickly search for contests on LookContests.com, and a form-filler.

You may have noticed that our contest listings occasionally (yes, it’s rare, but it does happen) contain errors. Sometimes a weekly contest is listed as monthly, or the contest URL may be incorrect.

I’d like to add functionality so that when you encounter one of these mistakes, you can quickly submit a form that will inform me of the mistake and I can ensure that it is corrected.

So, that’s a brief summary of what I’m working on.  Have you got a killer idea for the site? If so, let me know.
