Could there be a contests section?
Where anyone can create a contest?
Thanks, and have a nice day,

I like the idea, but perhaps with a blog format, instead of forum. There could be a forum topic per contest to discuss it though.

Again, I like the idea. I just don't want it to be overdone, or get spam/pointless contests. Maybe make a requirement of having Xander approve the contest.

I agree on both counts.. This sort of thing got really out of hand on NXTasy...

i think we should have a contest section but you need an approval from mightor first and only 3 contest at a time.

Or how about only one contest at a time? The maximum number would then be the first natural number, and the minimum would be the whole number immediately below the maximum number.

EDIT on March 6, 2012: I have no clue what I said.

I guess it's been a while, but I would still like a contests section. I mean, why not?

What sort of contests do you have in mind? I joined after the demise of nxtasy.

Would that be contests on a physical location? Or would you, say… upload a video of your accomplishment?

AFAIK all forum competitions have been online only.

However, there are competitions held at specific physical locations as well. It seems that the main type for a gathered competition is the Sumo bots.

Other somewhat common contests are: line following and drag racing. These could be held in person, or submitted through videos.
