I started a contest and the prize structure wasn't typical. I wanted a winner and three runner-ups/highly commended awards. I assumed, because the competition was approved, that the judging format would be changed. But, as I now go to judge the competition I only have three options, first, second of third. If it is not too much trouble, can I change it to have 1 winner and three equal runner-ups? OR alternatively, can I select one winner and no second/third place and simply notify the entrants via the wall, whom has placed as a runner-up?

Not sure what sort of response to expect, but if any mods have any advice it would be much appreciated.

I don't think there is a way to change the structure. It's a little new to us as well so I might be wrong. The only person who'd know for sure is Nate so you may need to send him a pm. Alternatively you could just anounce the winner and two of the runer ups and then make an extra comment on the competition to include the final runner up?

I'm pretty sure the contest structure is standard form and hard-wired into the site. I think it'd be best to follow Kitty's suggestion and just make a comment on the contest or send a PM to the winners informing them of how they placed.
You know you're a writer when you're not alarmed at hearing voices in your head, you can't read a book without analyzing it for plot & characters and you consider something you nearly killed yourself to write the most rewarding.

Guilty as charged.
