Characters 2003 was the Most Anticipated Contest ever, with over half the site submitting a bracket

The Most Anticipated Contests in GameFAQs Contest history, based on a poll that CJay and SB have run every season on the night before brackets lock, asking if people have submitted their entry yet. Every Contest is ranked by the percentage of GameFAQs users who anticipated the bracket enough to send in an entry for that season.

It should be noted that these results also partially reflect how easy it was to submit an entry that year; for the Top Ten games you literally only had to select 10 games from a dropdown list, whereas the '07 and '08 brackets wanted you to pick out 128 results between all the first and second place finishes, which surely seemed too time consuming for some. The Best Year '17 contest did not have a poll asking people if they filled out an entry, so we'll never know the exact level of interest among the site for this contest.
