It's every week, however we have to wait for the winner of this week's to choose the next topic. That's how me and Mike have it set up at the moment, but we're still working out the details. I'll get back to you.
Your 1st place gets 5 points, 2nd gets 3 points, and 3rd gets 1 point.
Twice a week would never happen due to the extreme business of many of our members. It's not high maintenance, just virtually impossible to make a contest-winning signature within 3 and-one-half-days day.
The reason we don't have SOTW this week is because as it stands, the winner picks the topic for the following SOTW. There hasn't been a winner of a previous SOTW because we just started, so the competition will become a weekly thing as it used to be. Mike and I are still working out the details, but I'll get back to you.
Like I said, we're still working out the details. We may decide to have a prize for runner-up, not sure. Be ready for a lot of changes/additions.
