Step 1: How, You Ask?

I know, I know, you're probably thinking "Hey, how can some random guy from the community just host a contest?" Well, I'm glad you asked, young maker of sandwiches.  Anyone can hold their own contests. They won't be mentioned on the front page like the contests the staff hold, because they have big corporate sponsors, and, well, the ability to put them in the contest section of the page. Your contest instructable may become featured or popular, though, and be seen on the front page for a short amount of time!

You asked how, and I told you!

    Well, yeah. I sent out all the prizes. I started this when I was living on the boat, and had a ton of time on my hands, but then we moved off and I had to go to regular school, and it kind of all got lost. I only just sent the prizes out. I also posted a forum topic somewhere. I'll have to dig it up.

    Really? after almost a year ago? I also just saw the group, that answers most of my questions

    Yeah, it was, well, bad. I got really caught up with other stuff and was REALLY busy. It was bad.

    Oh I could write a book.....but picking one may be difficult.....

    Yeah, it would be kind of like an "no need to cook" cook book. :-)

    Sorry for the late reply... that would be interesting! You should definitely try it!

    Cool contest! Maybe I'll go for A Really Good Ham Sandwich, which is what I often claim will get my write-in vote on election day. :)

    Just one thing: I think you may have been betrayed by your spell-checker (as happens to eveyone from time to time) in the fine print of Step 4 -

    "International entries ARE excepted!"

    Er, do you mean "excepted" as in "excluded," or "excepted" as in "accepted"?

    (How can two words be both near-homonyms and near-antonyms?)
