What I like about SQ is that they explicitly mention humor in their guidelines. Is anyone doing this?

Kay | 2 comments Entering you mean? Or mentioning humour?

Kay | 2 comments I might ... although I lack anything with humour - typical bloody Brit! Mainly I am thinking about entering because 90% of American contests accept overseas entries but require a check - which essentially means they don't accept overseas entries.

I once tried to get a money order, it took three weeks and cost more than the twelve dollar entrance fee.

Now I love any contest I can paypal or credit card my way into, even if I don't win, 'cos you got to be in it to win it, right?

I think "no" humor is better than forced humor, so go for it...!

Viva Paypal. A nifty tool that makes life easier.
