  1. Just a suggestion - I've checked back a few times but I never know if I've already entered the contest or not. Is there a way to mark them as newly added or maybe add the date you added them to the site??

  2. Kathy,

    All the new stuff we have entered is in that light blue text. All the older stuff is in grey.

    We will also being adding a feature every week that highlights all the new contests we found that week and a post reminding people about all the contests ending the following week.

    I hope this helps!
