So, we've been throwing around the idea of having prizes for the challenges. Doing so needs some kind of funds, so one idea of raising those funds is to have the challenges be "buy in." That is, each person who would like to participate for a chance to win the prize must first pay a fee up front. This would generally be a small fee, around $5 or so. With enough people it would be completely possible to get some kind of useful prize for the "contestants." Of course, those who do not wish to pay can abide by the challenge rules, but will not be able to be in the voting pool for the prize when the time comes. Or should that be the case? We'd like to maximize the number of entrants. The whole point of the prize is to get more people to participate.

The real question, though, is when it really comes down to it, would you be willing (and actually do it!) to pay a small fee to be able to win a prize for upcoming board challenges? Logistics of such a system will need to be figured out, but the first priority is to find out whether there are enough people interested in order to make it actually happen.
