I guess you and I are doomed. You will never get my point, and I will never get yours. But now that we hopefully are past the argument part, I have a suggestion:
Dtt mentioned that The Golden Ticket system could be used for the growth of the site. I agree. How about giving people points for submitting art, stories and other content? Once they reach a certain amount of points, they can have a Golden Ticket for themselves. That would mean that everyone has the chance of getting one, but only if they do something to improve the site.
How about that?
