I bet you didn’t expect another one of these so soon!
This is only our second review submitted with the new system, but I think Brian (TRO user -b) did a great job with it. Not only did he submit once – he was patient enough to resubmit a second time in response to my editorial advice. I’ve roughly matched the last random review prize (which was in GBP) and sent him an Amazon gift card for 15 dollars!
I want all of you to know that I value each and every user contribution to this website. Be it an emailed suggestion, comment, forum thread, submitting a review, or just using the site to manage your personal collection – my hobby would be nowhere near as rewarding without people to share it with.
I won’t be able to do these rewards for every review, though I wish I could. Unfortunately, I only make 9 dollars an hour at my current day job. But, having worked in media and press for a fair amount of my young life so far, I do believe in rewarding writing and criticism. So even if it’s just my heartfelt appreciation, or my commitment to match every effort you put into this site (and more), know that I’m doing my best to give back for everything we get. And once in a while, when I can, I’ll try to give you something direct and substantial.
That’s what the giveaways are all about.
When you tell people that your lifelong goal is to be great at sorting comics, they look at you pretty funny.
But I think this site can be a great resource. You guys are helping me build it.
