Challenge forum

One of the great things with dpreview is all the challenges and competitions. But the sad thing about that site is that it's rather awkward to find older competitions and postings from previous challenges.

One suggestion would be to create a Challenge forum with sub-forums like "Weekly Subject Challenge", "Monthly Live Competition", "Sunday World Shootout", etc. The subjects should be somewhat different than dpreview. WDYT?

That sounds like a great idea- I think I'll implement it in a few weeks, after the site had gotten some time to settle-in and expand.

Referring your friends or posting messages about our site will get it noticed, so that would speed up the growth, although I'm already stunned at how well it's started off. Thank you all!

Yes, all that will come...

Please watch your grammar, though, Kingdom- I want to keep this forum as clean as possible

I like it a lot. Make it easier for the challenges to not 'get lost'.

Ok, so now it's not a question of "if," but a question of "when."

When do you think it should be added? I'd suggest either today or some time next week, after we've picked up a few more users and potential contest participants.
