As most of you know, we run the preliminary contests on Totalfark to whittle the headlines down, then we run the contests on the Main page afterwards. Here are the contests we've run so far:

December 2012:  http://www.fark.com/comments/8024585

January:  http://www.fark.com/comments/8024940

February:  http://www.fark.com/comments/8026116

March:  http://www.fark.com/comments/8026753

April:  http://www.fark.com/comments/8033297

May:  http://www.fark.com/comments/8033509

I have two more contests that I'll be pushing out later today, as well, and more if I can find the time. Would like to really get us ahead of things now so that I'm not scrambling on the voting part and rushing stuff by the middle of December.
