I've decided to suspend the monthly prize money for the ten best submissions. Winners will receive an award certificate and store credit, with our goal being for the rev share system to ultimately generate more earnings than the existing prizes.
I'd think that'd put a lot of tension on you guys, individually. Instead of the community making the decision on who gets "showered in mullah", it's a single/random admin (presuming that's how frontpage content is determined, I have no idea). Potential frontpage blog posts could become more spammy and competitive for the space, too.
Not trying to be a downer, just looking from different angles. Money will drive people to think of and do things that free goers won't.
