A couple of thoughts here... I have in the past donated time to community projects, (not always code related) and at some point asked myself "why?" The following is the best I could come up with
- I wish to put my time/effort into something I believe in (ie. something larger than myself)</il>
- I wish to be respected by those I respect
It really boils down to that. I would have a hard time "believing" in something that I might win a prize for doing. I do something for tangible gain, or I do something for intangible gain. I get the sense of "cheezy" when the two are mixed, as they seem to be in what you are attempting. PLEASE! I am not critisizing what you are attempting in any way. Just telling you about my gut reaction to it. Hope that might be useful.
...the majority is always wrong, and always the last to know about it...
