I'm startled by this (that is the polite version) .  My personal opinion is that if the contestants want all take and no give, then it should be compulsory.  Come on people, this is not a one-way street....Gavin and Beats are working their arses off for you, please show some common courtesy and respect

To be honest, like anyone I know things are tight for people at the moment, and Christmas maybe isn't the best timing for this. I had thought that maybe half of the contestants might not contribute in any way, but the current ratio is pretty bad.

To give it some perspective, in the last tournament every person contributed towards the Championship belt from Obbigood, I didn't expect that this time as the competition is far bigger, but I also didn't expect to be funding several hundred pounds of this myself.

Rafa, the "themed challenges" are the updates for the forums. The website will be set up with a monthly update feature, so we will know exactly who has done what and when.

Also, this time we have a proper database for contestant entries, which I have spent most of my Christmas keeping up to date with entries, there is absolutely no prospect of this becoming messy at all, trust me. Many lessons have been learned from HWDC1, I just don't see the need to tell everyone about the "behind the stage" stuff we're doing.

I don't have a problem with an entry fee, considering what is involved here.  Hopefully, folks will step up and contribute after the chaos of the holidays dies down a bit.

(I'll be sending you some cash later today, Mega, in case you were wondering if I was going to put my money where my mouth is)

Thank you sincerely, if it makes anyone more comfortable I am happy to ....

a) Stop at $500, which will cover the belts and costs we have paid so far. I will cover food and beer costs for UK events.

or

b) Publish accounts to show everyone exactly where the money goes.

I say take whatever folks give and pay costs.  Then, if there is anything left over, either come up with some new events or toss the money into the prize pot.

But hey, it's your contest- do whatever you like. :D
