Well, from my point of view "what it is" is an unclear question! :laugh:

Without knowing which website you're referring to, one cannot offer a specific answer. But, in general, MANY contest sites do that. They send a teaser email, from which we infer needing to visit the site and check out the winner list (which is their goal, to simply drive traffic to the site). It usually leads me to re-check the rules, and most of the time I see that winners will be contacted directly. I've seen myself on a couple winners lists, and having not received any notice, contacted them, only to get a "sorry, we're tardy in getting notices out to winners...don't worry, your prize will be sent soon" response.

On the other hand, SOME contests require that winners contact them directly, without prior notice other than site-based winner lists, and nearly all of those have that detail called out clearly in the listings here at O-S.
