The rules here can be summed up simply as “Don’t lie, cheat, or steal, be respectful of others, play nicely, and have fun.” Basically what we all should have learned in Kindergarten. But for those who want/need more, please read on. If you see something that doesn’t look right, please flag or report it to us. Additionally, each contest may have specific rules so be sure to review those before entering.
Start here. Follow these rules. If you do, we will have lots of fun and there won’t be any issues. Break these rules and we will probably have to ban you. These are for the benefit of everyone using the site so let’s keep this a great place.
Don't be a jerk.
Here are some commitments you make to us relating to registering and maintaining the security of your account:
You may only submit content that you created.
You submissions may not be hateful, threatening, or pornographic; incite violence; or contain nudity or graphic or gratuitous violence. We may delete any submission violating this rule and the determination will be made at our sole discretion. Our decisions in this area are final.
You may not create an entry for the purpose of advertising - we do the advertising in this site!
By posting a submission, you understand that it will be visible to everyone.
There is no purchase necessary to play. Simply follow the rules and send us your entries or see below for how to enter via email.
Again, you can only submit entries you possess all the rights to…we are serious about this one. We take intellectual property rights seriously and can’t stand thieves. We will respond promptly to any complaints alleging unauthorized use of intellectual property. See below for more information and a DMCA notice form. You may not submit material that is copyrighted, protected by trade secret or otherwise subject to third party intellectual property, proprietary or other rights, including privacy and publicity rights, unless you are the owner of such rights or have permission from their rightful owner to post the material and to grant us all of the license rights required by these Terms.
You will always own your entry, BUT, by submitting your entry here, you grant us an irrevocable, worldwide, non-exclusive, royalty-free, sublicensable and transferable license to copy, store, display your entry. Use of the entry may be by us or our Sponsors or Partners in any way including but not limited to: (i) displayed on any of our sites, (ii) used in connection with marketing, promotion and/or advertising (iii) shared in social media and/or in any other form of media.

This license you grant to us includes, but is not limited to, the right to use, distribute, reproduce, modify, adapt, publicly perform, and publicly display all or any portion or component of the entire contents of the entry.
This Agreement will be governed by the laws of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. The parties consent and agree that jurisdiction and venue of any actions arising out of this Agreement or relating to the breach or enforcement thereof, will lie in the state or federal courts within Northampton County, Pennsylvania.
By entering the Contest, you release and hold harmless us, our Partners and/or Sponsors and any participating prize providers, as well as any of their respective parent companies, subsidiaries, affiliates, directors, officers, employees and agencies (collectively, the “Promoting Entities"), against any and all claims, demands and liabilities arising out of or relating to the Contest User's (and each individual member of User's) participation in the Contest and/or any Contest-related activity.
Don’t Cheat. Any use of robotic, automatic, programmed or similar methods of participation/voting will void all such submissions/votes by such methods. DISQUALIFICATION: WE RESERVE THE RIGHT IN ITS DISCRETION TO DISQUALIFY ANY PERSON WHO TAMPERS WITH OR IS SUSPECTED OF TAMPERING WITH AN ENTRY AND/OR THE JUDGING AND VOTING PROCESS, INCLUDING ANY PERSON ATTEMPTING TO SOLICIT, ENCOURAGE OR OBTAIN AUTOMATED VOTES.
