What kinds of contests do YOU want to see on Instructables?

Hi everyone! As we're planning contests for the next year, we wanted to get suggestions and feedback on the types of contests we're running. :D

Is there a contest we ran years ago you'd like to see again?
Any contests you're sick of?
A weekly challenge you'd like us to expand on?
Do you want the contests to be more specific or more open ended?

We're trying to shake things up in contest-land - so any and all suggestions are welcome! I'm especially interested in what types of tech contests you guys would like to see, as well as ideas for food contests. 

P.S. For anyone wondering about weekly challenges - we're still trying to figure out a way to do it that makes it easy for you guys to enter and easy for the editors here to run. But I promise we are discussing it! :)

Have prize suggestions? Check this topic.
Want to get a preview of some of our upcoming contests?

A "Temperature Contest"

Ranging from ice-cream and soup, to forges, Hot-wire cutters, and peltier coolers...

There are many new contests, but one of them is "missing": A trash to treasure contest


It would be similar to the hiding places contest but would cast a wider net.

Soldering contest would be awesome!

I would love to take part in that.

There was one last summer. I hoped they would have had it this year too...
