Well first of all, people seem to feel obligated to start contests. Be it a sort of competitive drive to host the more popular contest, or something else, I'll likely never know. The problem of too many contests is not necessarily very bad when the contests have a wide variety among them, such as Bio Cup and the Alternate Self-MOC Contest- two fairly successful comps that are very different from each other (just a random example of two). This is typically achieved when the comp has a more specific purpose overall- for example, mutant Rahi or something, instead of just general BioMOCing for each round. That said, I usually don't mind if that aspect is generic if the contest itself brings something new to the table, be it a new unique way to organize each round's requirements, or something similar. I myself have a few ideas like this (which I will not share right now as they are irrelevant). But when the contest itself isn't unique, and the subject matter isn't either, it doesn't interest me, and this is the group formula we see so (in fact, too) often. Oftentimes comps die early due to lack of planning... such as beginning the tournament without any other judges. Just something to keep in mind.

Thanks.
