Kabel you started the contest before hand, so unless there is some issue with your contest, finish it up.
From now on, if you want to run a contest with a prize, you can run it past a history regulator (me or rogue_ang) but it will have to eventually go through ISC for approval. If it is within your guild, your guild leader ALSO has ISC's ear, so you can run it by them.
Ecclesiastes, for example, ran his slums and defenses challenge through Sirens-of-Titan who ran it past ISC. MikeyB is doing the same for his fifth guild challenge- or at least he is working on it.
That is the way to go if you have prizes. No prizes, or just want a community build, then post it whenever you want.
The issues with member run contests and prizes are that if the member fails to pay the piper at the end, then people committed time and resources for a project that doesn't pay and EB looks bad for letting it happen.
