Thoughts on the Mod Contest for LucasFiles.com

I'd consider entering but I can't accept the file submission agreement for lucasfiles.com. I've mentioned this before but it basically states that we have no right to our work, period.

In addition, I don't like the idea of having the "public" decide the winner. While this seems like a good idea on the surface, it's racked with problems.

Firstly, a lot of the JK2 community is very ill informed about their mods. If you asked 10 random people who originally created such features as the RBG saber colors or customizeable handles, they'd probably say BOFH/Spectrum instead of Dest/TCK. I'm concerned that people will vote by simply what they know/have played instead of trying each mod and making an informed decision on the quality of the mod instead of the "OMG!!! Th3r3 B J3tP@cz!!!" factor.

Secondly, it's pretty easy to cheat in an open-to-the-public online voting system.
