    Hey everyone! As I hope you know, the Clogs to Coins contest is now live!

    I'm opening up this thread for general contest questions and discussions. I'm here to help!

    Before you ask a question or enter in the Clogs to Coins contest, visit the official contest page, read through our guidelines, and read the rules.

    For some helpful tips on writing a winning entry, I recommend visiting our super spiffy Learning Center guide that Robin put together! It's an online version of the HubCamp we held at our office on the 18th.

    Winners will be posted in another thread, so you won't have to dig through here to see who is winning the Daily Drawing, Staff Pick, Pro Plumber, and Grand Prizes.

      Cool! Thanks! How do we see a list of all entries for the day?

        Simone Smithposted 7 years agoin reply to this

        Good question. I never requested to have a listing of entries generated, since the past couple of times it confused folks more than it helped them, but because all entries are in the plumbing category, all you have to do is go to the category page and view the latest Hubs published.  They'll all be contest entries!

          There is apparently a bug. Approximately 8 hrs ago (10am Pacific), the "latest" tab stopped working. Hubs published since then appear on Profile pages, but not on Topic pages. This might apply to "best" and "hot" as well. Therefore, your nifty idea of how we should be able to track the contest entries hasn't been working.

            I curse this cruel world.  It does look like there's a bit of a delay now, but they still seem to be showing up, less promptly, but... better late than never! Perhaps this is happens when an unusually high volume of 'latest' articles start coming in.

        Just something to keep in mind- you do not have to mention Drano at ALL in your entries, and we're not giving special precedence to anyone who does, so don't feel like you have to work it in unless it's directly related to the subject at hand big_smile

        Congratulations to the winners so far in a challenging contest. I look forward to reading some of the entries later tonight but thought I would share for now an embarrassing insight, in that I have just realised what the title of the contest means. I have been wondering for a couple of weeks what traditional wooden shoes made in the Netherlands have to do with coins or plumbing. The penny has just dropped, big time...

        (In my humble if inadequate defence, I can offer only that although we may refer to pipes or drains as being clogged in the UK, we would much more commonly say blocked... sad )

        Also, in the official contest winner thread, I made a wee mistake yesterday by putting SimeyC down as the Daily Drawing winner and Equusdvm2010 as Staff Pick- it's really the other way around ^_^

          Roy, I just got back from reading your hub. I had to laugh (as well as relate) to the towel being flushed down the drain that you mention. But, the hub offers some great information and I am so glad you and your plumbing came out okay after the storm. You should post a link to your plumbing hub in the a Weekly Topic Inspiration forum! wink

              A very good question actually, Roy. You can highlight the hub URL (the address specifically derived for that article and found either in your stats window, or at the very top of your hubs page). It's the address that starts "Http://..." Highlight it all; in the stats window you will find a shortened version. "Copy" the address and "Paste" it into a comment reply window of the Weekly Topic Inspiration forum. You can even tell us a little about the hub to garner interest. Post the comment and you are all done!
              Let me know if you have any problems with this or if I am not clear with the directions for you and we will try again!

        I want to thank the HP team for all these contests. Through the last three or four contests I have learned so much. As an example, in this one I've learned to really take time to research thoroughly and also attempted to work on my formatting and presentation.

        Of course the prize money is cool, but more importantly I think I benefit hugely from the whole process.

          Well well, SImeyC- we want to thank you, too! Reading your Hubs is an absolute pleasure!  I'm also really glad that you're learning from the contests- we try to design them in such a way that helps people improve their online writing skills, and it is SO great to hear that you feel they've made a difference.  We have definitely seen a difference, though your Hubs have always been great.
          Also, congrats dude- your Hub on the standard plumbing fixtures (so much fun!) won today's Staff Pick prize!

        I know y'all have been plumbing for two weeks, but I strongly encourage you to keep submitting entries! With the submission rates we've been getting, your daily chances of winning $50 on up are so good.  They've never been better!

        Just submitted my first and only article for this contest late yesterday, in time for today's final deadline. In the process, I discovered a totally new (to me!) style of plumbing that seems like the dream answer for pretty much anyone's plumbing needs. Had I not been spurred to come up with a plumbing topic, I may never have discovered this wonder alternative to conventional plumbing pipe. What a fun research and writing project this turned out to be!

        For the curious, here's the link to my hub:

          Well, shut my mouth and tickle me pink! I am honored to receive this accolade, and proud to have supplied an article which, I hope, will help many in their plumbing pursuits for years to come.

          I believe I just may use the prize as seed money to start a fund toward setting up a PEX system of my own! First project: Hot Water a la Compost Heap! Funny; I didn't expect that writing a hub about plumbing would soon have me looking forward to starting a plumbing project!

          Thanks, HubPages! I very much appreciate the recognition.  big_smile

          This was such a fun topic. I didn't think I knew anything about plumbing and here I am a winner. Waiting with baited breath for the grand prize winner.  The hubs were stupendous

        This was such a fun contest! It was inspirational too! I never would have thought that writing about a broken toilet could have evoked so many fits of giggles or great advice! Congratulations to everyone! You all wrote such excellent and interesting articles! Good luck to you and all who attempt these future plumbing endeavors!

          Agreed!  I never ever would have thought to write about plumbing without the prompting from Hubpages, Draino and that little spark of contest enthusiasm!  Thanks y'all!

        Thanks to Hub Pages and Drano for such a fun contest! It was a great way to get started on hub pages! It was also kinda fun to share some of my own plumbing fiascoes in a way that hopefully will help others cope with theirs.
