In an effort to expand our Help Topic forum, CLF will be holding a month long contest during the month of October. The contest is open to all CLF members. As a reward for the time taken to create these posts, we will be awarding a 3 year subscription to the overall winner, selected by a Poll conducted here on CLF and that post will be permanently posted in the "Help Topics" forum. Any other topic that the moderators of CLF feel is worthy of permanent posting in the help topics forum, will also be awarded a one year CLF subscription.
Topics can be on anything outdoor related that may be of value to CLF readers. Things like, "How to clean a pike" "How to Rig a Leadcore rig", "Cleaning & lubricating a spinning reel", "How to pack the bearings on a trailer" ,"How to clean a deer" etc. would all be good topics. Use your imagination, be creative and share your knowledge!! Remember though, posts must be of your own creation, you cannot simply cut and paste from another website. Plagerism will not be tolerated.
All Topic entries shall be posted in a Temporary Contest forum. Readers can then comment on the post, ask questions etc. Entrants can then edit their orignal post if they want according to the feedback they recieve. Entrants can edit their posts up until Midnight on 10/31. On Nov. 1, we will then post a poll in that forum in which the members can vote on which post they think was best put together. Voting will go for 1 week and the winners will be announced on Saturday Nov. 8th.
Pictures are not required, but can be greatly helpful. CLF also requires that all pictures that are part of the topic be able to be transferred to a CLF hosting account so that pictures will always be viewable, even after the contest is over (we will copy the pics for you).
For examples, check out the existing "Help Topics" forum at the bottom of the main page.
