Can't post an article in the competition forum. You need to change the permissions for the registered users group.

What do you mean by original? Never published before anywhere or just original to the owner?
i.e. If I have published my own similar article on my site, could I rehash/improve it and post it here?

The article has to be unique. If you have an article you wish to re-use I ask that you re-word the article and also improve on it

Thanks

Hey JCB!

Would you care if I wrote a guide on how to do algebra? I feel like it could help out this forum a lot!

So... regardless of the number of entries, the 2nd and 3rd place writers get a pittance? How many will actually be 'published'?

I realize this sounds somewhat rude, but I am trying to decide whether I should submit an article here or not: I can get a fixed price elsewhere or make an all-or-nothing gamble here (provided there are a lot of competing entries).

you can do, but remember the best guide will win, and we ask the guides to be computer related

All articles will be published. Last time we got 15 entrys, but the prize money on offer was much less. I am hoping with the higher prize money on offer we will get more entrys

You / Computerforums.org will own the right. If you want to remove the article from the site you can
