Okay, so just to clarify, the articles listed on the competition page only count towards winning the voucher if they haven't already been previously started by someone else? For example both the Uluru article I tried to submit yesterday(!), and the Halong Bay article I was going to add to today, are listed on the page but there was some exisiting (although relatively sparse) info on them someone else had previously added (not recently, the Halong Bay hasn't been added to in almost 10 months).

I'm just a tad confused (sorry, long day at work), but maybe articles like this shouldn't be listed on the competition page then?

Sorry for being difficult! And I'm not saying it would stop me from adding to the articles, it's just having the thought of winning something is a nice incentive!

You are right, those articles already exisit in the Unesco suggested links. Still, I guess most of them are quite short, and only have an introduction. So for me it is kinda hard to decide wether to delete the links in the suggested articles or just wait for them to have at least 2500 characters. I guess the last one is better, in which case you have my vote to join the competition...;)

OK, talked this over with Peter and we reckon with the UNESCO ones it should count, since they're listed on the project page. We'll think about whether to open it up more next month, but for now, yes, the work you did on the Uluru-Kata Tjuta article counts:) I've popped your name up on the list.

Cheers,
Eric

Hey Mim, you are more than welcome to enter. It's more the full timers that was referring to :)

Thank-you very much, you have made my otherwise pretty unexciting day!
