Though of course permission will have to be requested for all contests anyways.
Look at the little history hat under my name there... I am TELLING everyone they have to be approved by staff going forward.
In part due to the departure of Angeli during his contest and issues with other member run contests on other parts of the site, the EB policy, which will be closely monitored, is to have all contests approved by staff. It really isn't too hard to get them approved, but it must be done.
