Why do they wait so long to announce the contests on the front page?

I mean, the "Water Cooler" one had been going on for about a week before they put it up front.

I agree. I think they mentioned it over a weekend and I caught a glimpse of it on my way out the door, but it had already started 2 days prior. Wouldn't it be nice to have a week notice before the start. Oh well, it is just for fun. It would be nice to win some money though. I don't think the water cooler contest will be the one for me though. There is something about picking stocks that "everybody" is watching so closely with so many opinions. Good luck.

Yeah. I had also convinced my Dad to buy some a while back (at around 14 I think), and sheepishly told him to sell at 8. But now I'm a genius for selling at 8, right? Just watch, though: I'm going to buy at 5 and watch it go to 2, sell at 3, and pat myself on the back when they go to 0.10 and bankruptcy.

The link on the Contest page was (is still?) funky, so the contest was posted (so the blog could link to it) and the blog was posted (so the contest could link to it) but it wasn't ready for the main page (because the links were bad.) Hopefully this won't happen in the future.

We also may have contests that start at a date after the announcement, but I didn't think of it this time.

Fool on,
