While I'm not sure what the forum's rules are regarding contests that are announced on these forums, asking people to subscribe to your YouTube channel to be able to participate can be considered spam as it's a tactic to farm for subs under the Code of Conduct.
Foxhound, please clarify your stand on contests on these forums as I couldn't find anything regarding contests in the Code of Conduct even though I read it at each time you post a newer version of the CoC.
As the Code of Conduct doesn't mention contests, I asked Foxhound about the guidelines for contest threads in my previous post and hopefully, we'll get a response on this thread later today. Link to the CoC: Community Forum - Code of Conduct
I consider them advertising. We normally allow in house tournaments, but tournaments that exist outside of our forum can be sketchy. Not claiming that this is the case for the OP, but it has been before with other users.
