As most of you noticed, last week and this week we ran our Headline of the Year contests for:

Mainpage
Sports
Geek
Entertainment
Politics
Business

While Main is closed, some of the contests are still open for voting, so it's not too late if you've missed them earlier. But even if you did, you can still check out the threads and enjoy the headlines.

Next week we'll have a few more smaller contests, the Context headline of the Year, the Puns/Wordplay contest, and maybe one more if I have enough time to assemble it. We'll also let you vote for your favorite Photoshop contest of the year next week.

That's all, and thanks for coming by again.

Enough with the "headline of the ..... for the dates of ...... on the ....... tab between 7:30 am and 4:43 pm, written by left handed people with...... number of siblings" stuff.

At the end of the year, pick 10.
Vote.
Be done with it for crying out loud.
