First an update on the situation. I have been told that my clearance may finally pass within the next couple weeks. Its been a long while but I can finally see myself having some disposable income again. I wont burden you all with the continuing adventures of Me vs my bank but basically having some extra cash again will make that irrelevant.

The main point of this journal though is to get people's opinions on bonus points. I've had them as a part of most of my contests so far and am curious what people think about them. I've tried two different types and so far the response has been mixed.

The main one is some kind of secondary entry, usually worth a substantial amount of bonus points. I try and stress that it can literally be a rough sketch of some kind but generally people either go all in or say 'screw it'. And the results are affected by them, although interestingly our two winners so far have not needed a bonus in order to win.

The second type are sort of 'participation' awards. Advertising the contest or commenting on submissions have been the two I've tried. These were really easy to do and Im surprised not everyone did them last time around and lost out on quite a few essentially free points.

The third type was pretty much shot down by everyone right away so never mind...

Overall Im divided on bonuses because some people really make use of it and get ahead in the contest as well while others seem to forget they exist entirely and maybe lose standing for that reason.

So what does everyone else think about them?

So, is this group just dead? Because it feels like this group is just dead.

Not dead, more like hibernation. Ive been having a rough year or so since the last contest in terms of employment. I have every intention of bringing this back but I have very little control over when unfortunately.

Oh? Of the vast ocean of fetishes I feel we're pretty tame. What was the purpose of this comment?

Err... Its for TF and TG themed contests which were going well for a while but I'm stuck in a limbo of having already being accepted for a job but the start date is pushed back over and over. As soon as I get back to work contests will start up again so I hope you can hang with us till then.
