Hi everybody. Just letting you know that we ran the Headline of the Year contest for mainpage headlines last Friday, but today we have the last seven contests on tap: the five main subtab contests for Sports, Geek, Entertainment, Politics and Business. I just need to upload those and will be doing that over the next few hours. The last two contests will be the Context Headline of the Year contest and the Puns/Wordplay contest.
Keep an eye out for them. In the meantime, enjoy this final day of 2012. Cheers
