Content added to your site
The Writerspace Contest Entry plugin creates a custom post type called ws_contests. When a contest is created a new post is created along with one meta field for contest ID.  That is it. The only data that is stored is the name of the contest and one custom field. The rest of the functionally and data storage is handled through the Writerspace servers.
