Right now, there is an awesome Mass-Effect 3 event going on at Gaming.SE, and an ICS contest going on at Android.SE. I love participating in these events / contests (I loved the hat one on Gaming.SE around New Years). Is there any way to get notified when a new event is coming up on one of the sites you are a member of?

Is there also a list of all the events that took place in the past? I feel like there's a lot of cool artwork and graphic design that it would be neat to go back and look at in an archive.

UPDATE: There is now a list of all promos at this site: http://stackexchange.com/promos

I'm on the fence about this. On one hand, you want people to see the cool stuff and get involved in new sites. On the other hand, you open it up to people bouncing around and just doing stuff to try to win something. I would suppose the former wins out but it may mean contests need to be carefully designed. –  Matthew Read Mar 8 '12 at 2:01
    
If you use RSS, you could subscribe to the feed for each site's blog that you're interested in. –  animuson Mar 8 '12 at 5:34
    
@animuson yeah, except not all sites have a blog.. –  Sathya Mar 8 '12 at 5:48
    
Is every event that has happened listed on a blog? I think I would understand wanting to keep the events somewhat private to the frequent visitors (the sites could definitely get out of control), but would it be very difficult to find all the past events, or compile a list? There have probably been events for sites I have never even visited. –  John Mar 8 '12 at 17:25
