Default Unanswered: why can't people who are not gifted or gift gurus host contests?

I've never tried to host a contest before. Finally, when I wanted to host one with the prizes being almost all exclusive, rare, or no longer available items, it came to my attention that only gifted people can host contests where the prizes aren't food. I'm not meaning to be rude or protest the idea. I'm just wondering why this is? I'm not really understanding it. Does anyone know the reason this rule came about?

I believe because Gifted and Guru's are "higher" levels and have the experience with the GE area to host the contests.

That is what I was figuring. I have recently applied, and I have high hopes of being approved. Since I have been a member on WI for a fairly long while, I hope I will be able to be a further part of the community. Thank you!

I think it may be that WI can trust that they definitely will give what they say they will in the contest.

I never knew that/ I thought you just had to get permission first to host a contest with prizes other then W-shop foods...

Yes, ImTara55, to a greater extent you have the answer right. We have gone through the ropes and understand the process of the GE and demands of a Multiple trade/s. We also have Feedback (similar to eBay in that we have to be trusted traders to get 100%). It is definitely a trust issue.
You have enoough posts and if you have applied just wait for the 'callback. It may take a while, they are pretty backed up. BUT we have FOUR NEW COACHES that were just introduced yesterday. There are a LOT of people working toward getting their gifted status.
Good Luck and Hope to see you soon in the BIG GE!
