perhaps propose money prizes for collabs luis - things seem to thrive on here when money is suddenly presented.
I'm always torn over proposals such as this (although I, of course, have no say in whether or not something would be implemented). On the one hand money greases the gears of industry, whether that industry is indie Flash collabs or cars, money makes stuff happen it's a great motivator, on the other hand I feel like money can (and often does) bring out the worst in people and kind of despoil things that were once pure and done out of the love of the art.
Anyway if anyone of you is interested I made a news post about a possible Evolution Project collab, I'd love to get some input from you guys about what works and what doesn't.
Not to toot my own horn, but I think having a go at a just for fun art thread before launching into a collab works out pretty well, almost like a trial run (although I didn't plan on making a collab at first).
@J-qb: yeah, quality control and time would be issues. I'll have to find a way to keep people interested over a long(ish) period and keep pretty strict control over what will be allowed in.
