Oops. Apparently the bystander effect got us and the Contest Winner announcement was never posted. So here it goes: we have a tie between the Lasting Carpet Bomb and Jumping window snippets. However because nobody bothered suggesting prizes the authors of these delightfully malicious snippets get: "mad props"

Also it seems that only a couple of people submitted ratings... is it because the rating widget is difficult to use? Would you prefer an up/down, or maybe a star based rating system?

On a slightly related note, a new release is coming very very soon and with it we will start another, more legitimate, contest (with a tangible prize) but in the mean time if you have any suggestions for contests, features, bugs, or whatever send us feedback or comment below.

What's a "mad prop"?

I think that few people rated the snippets because there simply aren't enough users. Maybe you should spend more time advertising the site than updating it. Maybe it's just that not enough people read the news section.

props is a (US based) slang term that is equivalent to a pat on the back... mad props is just a lot of "props". I guess we were to colloquial for our own good. Sorry!

You are probably right. We have not spent enough time/effort on marketing, probably because it's a lot more "fun" to update the site.

Advertising also costs money, while working the site ourselves does not (directly) cost us anything. If you or anyone has any suggestions on how to advertise or market the site effectively, our ears are always open.

Also feel free to invite your friends to use the site, that would increase the number of users too! : )
