In the past, we used to run quite a few competitions but they seemed to lose a bit of steam after a while. We have some prizes in waiting, can anyone come up with some all inclusive competition ideas ? We need to get as many members as possible involved.

I've always enjoyed the caption competitions - we've got some really witty folk on here.

Im useless at captions  

How about a quiz? either a general one covering all sections or individual ones for each section then overall winner for most points?

I could get some questions from tonights pub quiz, as long as people don't cheat.
Has anyone got any links to websites where we could get suitable FREE pictures for a caption competition?

Good one for that bodger would be just a search engine,i know for sure that the google chrome search engine i use if you punch in the search of what you are looking for and go to the header just below it and click on 'Images' you should be able to download direct or right click and save,it will give you the pixel numbers on it as well so you can choose one for web use,generally i find anything 400pixels on the longest side or over is good,if you cant get them there something like flickr or photobucket should have some 'Royalty' free images
