Voted, but have you read the t&c? I can't tell clearly whether this means the actual project or just the comments and the project description...

As you can see in today's post, they own whatever you contribute to the website. So, your carefully crafted literature in the comments to my project are theirs. Is that a big deal?

The PSA terms, if you win, are about what I'd expect for an advertising assignment. Content that they use they own. I plan to negotiate, if I do win, that I own everything else.

I was actually more worried about your project; my comments if I make any aren't that big of a deal to me. So glad to hear that it's not the rights grab it sounded like at first.


Hi David!

First good luck with your assignment! It seems not an easy task to get your idea supported.

Would you mind if I share my idea with your readers? Maybe they will find it interesting... Will appreciate everyone's thoughts about it!

Sure, bring it on. I think I'm going to start highlighting the projects at the bottom of the list (e.g., mine) and see if I can help bring us all up.
