Alright, for those of you who have been wondering what the "mysterious potential" is, I am finally ready to unveil both that, and what this drawing was for in the first place!
Today I'm launching the site bitSyndicated.com
, where I hope to offer quality content of various types based around the tipping model, and especially using tips as a more effective form of feedback than merely site stats. The first post is a comic based on the illustration I sought in this thread. Check it out
Once the initial illustrator's fee is paid off, remaining donations received for the comic will be split between the illustrator and the Wikipedia translation bounty
for BitCoin articles. But here's the twist--unlike the initial 10(+1) bitcoins that I awarded to ChaosFox(+joeydangerous), viewers will get to decide whether they prefer the version I chose or the alternate version. That's the "mysterious potential". So if you think I made the wrong choice, here's your chance! And if there's a good response to this one, I will probably be doing something like it again soon.
One thing to note is that I care a lot more about the number of tips than about the total quantity received. If you like the comic and want to see more cool content, giving even a tiny amount will help to make that happen. My main goal (besides supporting a good cause) is to find a better way than advertising and stats to fund and provide feedback for content on the web. Your .02 btc matters! /lame humour
