I can see where you're coming from, but I somehow don't like it, haha. Last night several people said they 'don't want it to be a contest like all the others'. Maybe in format we would be if we used the forum here, but we will never be the same as others. We are a contest for friends, it's not one of those contests where you can just step in when you feel like it without knowing 'us'. That will always make us special, no matter what format we use. This is also why I think the contest should remain to carry the escChat.com name, which means we should have it in the forum or go for the 'payment-option' for the contest site.
