Yes, you can add entries and edit them for the entire duration of the contest. Only edits made before/after the contest start/end date (18 Sep - 11 Oct) will not count.

Can I make a suggestion instead of a question? I'm new to this.

Do I always need to make a post with a question, can I answer my own question/suggestion?

Thanks in advance.
by (2,013 points)
@Kelvin Kegel - if you are asking whether you can participate in this contest by just making a suggestion - yes you can. This will count towards the improvement category. To participate, please submit your entry as explained above. If you meant to ask about something else, please clarify as I might have missed it.

Cheers!

Outstanding Contribution Contest Entry

Question:
Can eating a Demonic Candy Ball turn you into The Mutated Pumpkin?

Answer:
How long does it take to get Hunting Task Rewards?

Improvement:
The improvement I would suggest is the to resolve tables going outside the borders of a page like in my answer here. Either by having a horizontal scrollbar or maybe there would be another solution.

Another question @ Ello- I've already suggested previewing our own posts here on Jan 8th, is this suggestion valid? Also, the rules state we're only allowed to suggest one improvement. https://meta.tibiaqa.com/1234/previewing-our-own-posts
by (2,013 points)
Yes, I'm afraid we cannot accept this improvement, as it already has been posted before and there's more than one. Moreover, the suggestion should be posted as a new topic (with "suggestion" tag) on Meta TibiaQA
by (11 points)
I didn't know the preview one was already posted back in January and my intention was just to get the others down for you to see while having the main suggestion as the one to count for the contest. Either way I made adjustments and hopefully it is all fine now.
