No luck on automating it?

And might want to do the manual update on the one posted late this afternoon.

Someone replied "Ended...." to the above post. SO, since we're on the subject of these posts anyway, shouldn't they have the end date in the title too?

See the thing is.. those threads are auto generated once the giveaway is set up.
No one is then going to go in and edit the title and icon each day. *I don't mind going in to add the icon but really if you see those threads it will be the same pretty much all the time.. one day and you can enter it once...when you enter you get as many extra entries then as you have earned)
They used to auto generate into the Announcements forum but I guess they felt the contest & sweeps forum made more sense and would get more attention from those who like to enter.

I actually thought that the addition of the date and category icon would be relatively simple tweaks to whatever the script etc. is that posts them.

"I" know all that. My initial post was prompted by some of the posts in the CS wins thread:

I enter EVERY day, and you should too.Its located on the frontpage, so it can be easy to miss for people who only visit the sweeps forum directly.
Quote from McRofles View Post :
Congrats! I've been entering those too the past couple days. I usually forget since I come straight to this section.
Quote from andy_andy View Post :
That is awesome! I hate that I routinely forget to enter this one, since I go straight to this forum.

Great Implode. Congratulations. I enter often but it is easy to forget .
