This is a contest search engine developed by dAhub
. Moderators from AnotherContestGroup
curate the contests that are submitted by deviantART users. To add your contest to this search engine, use the Contest Submission Form
. Contests submitted using this form are submitted to the Contest Directory above, the Upcoming Contests
journal, and the Message Center Contest WidgetInstructions
In the search field enterusername=dahub
to see all the contests authored by, hosted at, or submitted by dAhub
The "Author" is who wrote the contest journal. "Hosted at" is the group the journal appears in (if it was originally submitted through a group). "Submitted by" is the user who put the contest into the directory
to see how the contest www.deviantart.com/deviation/4…
appears in the search results. The number is the deviation id of the journal found at the end of the journal URL and in the :thumb: code
Use double quotation marks like"as the"
to see all results where the word 'as' and 'the' occur sequentially
Starting a search with a dash-limit
will remove all results that contain the keyword 'limit'
You can enter text in the search field, press enter, use the left and right arrow keys to navigate through the results and then press the 'backspace' key to modify the text in the search field
The results are ordered by the deadline. Those about to expire are listed first.
The results are limited to the first 24 records. To see more results using the same search, increase the "Deadline after" dateModeration
The search engine only lists contests once they have been approved by an AnotherContestGroup
moderators will leave a comment on each contest journal as they are approved in order to notify the contest host that their contest has been listed in the directory.
If a contest is approved by an AnotherContestGroup
moderator and then the original poster edits the contest listing, the contest must be re-approved by an AnotherContestGroup
moderator before it will appear in the results again
Only an AnotherContestGroup
moderator, the original contest journal author, or the user who submitted the contest to the directory may edit the contents of that contest in the directoryFrequently Asked QuestionsQuestion: what is the deadline before vs deadline after mean?
Answer: Entering dates into these fields restricts the results to just contests that have deadlines after, before, or strictly between the given dates. If you only want to see contests that end at least one week from now, click the "+ Week" button in the "Deadline After" section. If you only want to see contests that will end within the next 8 weeks, click the "+ Week" button in the "Deadline Before" section 8 times.Question: Why does it show only 24 contests per search?
Answer: It was a design decision to limit the lag when loading queries that have a lot of results. The results are ordered by the deadline, so you can view contests past the initial 24 by increasing the "Deadline After" date
