You know them. You love them. Signature and other Graphic Art contests are what makes a graphics site a graphics site, or in this case, a graphics forum in general. However, freedom is limites, no matter what people say. Although you can make a contest and have anyone join it, you cannot, however, make a contest that contains crude/illicit material such as pornography, wanton/gratuitous violence, or use of illegal drugs, just as examples.
The things your contest description must have are the contest, and the maximum number of contestants.
