“Anyone can see your contest unless you make your contest private. People find contests by going to the home page and browsing the list of contests. For private contests, you must email users for them to have access to your contest, and they must register to view or enter your contest. The contest creator is the only person allowed to invite people to a private contest.”

Why It Might Be A Killer

Yahoo is an extremely popular site for emails, browsing, and many other things. Since Bix is now part of Yahoo, there is a huge possibility that it will also become very popular with Yahoo users. There are very few sites on the web where people can hold there own contests, and also view others. It is fun to explore, and to see people who think they have talent.
