Yes, I'll volunteer to work on the journal article. Off-list, perhaps you could let me know what the next couple deadlines are. (It might take me awhile).

To everyone else,
If you have an anecdote about participating in a contest, I'd love to hear it. Off-list is fine if you'd prefer. (I could refrain from using your name in the article if you request).
Also, if you know of any exploitative contests happening now, or that have happened recently, it'd be good to have a short list of examples for the article. Please let me know.

The article will provide a great immediate resource for our members, and it will be an excellent foundation for a web page on this topic. We can work with the author on crafting solid and clear guidelines and positions, and use it as a springboard for further discussion and input before we post online.

Do we have a volunteer? [Remember: publishing in the Journal is good for your resumé!, besides being a good thing for all of us!]
