I dont mind. After its over or after some time I just remove the journal when Im on my weekly journal cleaning trip |D
And for small contests its important or else no one else would notice it, thats why I made it a rule in my contest. And it did help
For huge contests/raffles where theres already hundreds of people entering its kind of useless though. Also I dont like to enter big contests because alot of people judge by art skill and i dont like that. I just like ones where creativity is more important than skill because it gets unfair at a point, like "come try again when you have more skill"
I was the first one to do a certain idea in a contest and spent so long on my picture but wasnt even in the honorable mentions, and an entry that had a similar idea to mine, posted after mine but had less meaning to it, won. I thought that was pretty unfair >:U So I will think more about whose contest I enter
