Alright, so this is mainly for those who have several accounts, and contest them with their own arena. Do you do splits, or do you do unlimited?
If so for splits, what splits do you use?
And lastly, why for both?
I have 7 accounts, and I contest them all, so I do unlimited to ensure all get in. I want to do splits because there's more XP in it, but I'm worried not all my ponies will get in because of UDLs.
Try to organise your 7 accounts by levels. Say 0-500 in a few and those above etc. But if it's too much hassle, just do unlimiteds.
ETA: For my splits I use 0-400 and then 401-max
It depends on what type of quests you like to do really. If you do medium quests, splits gain more levels, but any quests hard or above, I'd use unlimited because the ponies stack too many UDLs and have a chance of not getting in the competition.
Since I usually do medium level quests, I use split contests, with one unlimited so if I notice any ponies not in a contest, I put them in that one. But I only have 2 accounts right now.
What I would do with 7 accounts is put ponies in the separate accounts based on their level, so there is less chance of a pony not getting put in a competition, and so you know where you need to put the split levels at.
I just do unlimiteds, for the most part each account is around the same level. I didn't do this on purpose, they just did this all by themselves. But then, when I start a new training account I tend to get 0-100 level ponies since they seem to be the cheapest on the market.

Reason: As this is about contesting strategy, I'll move it over to Strategy/Contesting. :)
I alternate between splits (0-100, 101-300, 301-500, 501-700, 701-1019), unlimited beauty contests and unlimited tug of wars.
I like using contest types that aren't marathons since it's not the same ponies placing high every hour.
