    Okay, I'll take your word on that.

    Ok, at this stage of the game I must say, the few people who have submitted entries are going to be extremely overjoyed with the return they get, whether they take the grand prize or not.

    I also have to say I am a bit surprised that out of all of our members here, the twitter blasting over the past week with over 200 retweets by people, and the press release, that the turnout on tutorial submissions was so bloody abysmal.

    Last chance to get some damn decent money people. The contest ends on the 5th. The way it is right now, even those that only get accepted and dont win the grand prize are still looking at a damn good bit of cash.

    Come ON, people! We're giving away $1,000 here!

    I have to say, I'm really underwhelmed. Hard to imagine that out of nearly 60,000 members, we can't find more than a couple that are interested in making a couple hundred bucks!

    On top of that, as William said here:

    That means that the same $1,000 prize money will be divided between all the accepted entries, whether we get 33 or just 3! If that's not worth your energy, then maybe you ought to just hire someone to go stand in line at the Welfare office for you, so you don't tire yourself out!

    I'd add to that, the fact that it's more than a little likely that the next time we run a contest like this, it'll be somewhere else. Apparently, folks here are either lazy or don't need a little extra money.

    @williamc, if you check your inbox you'll find my actual entry, not that crappy PDF I sent by accident. That's what I get for starting a project at 11 at night. LOL

    My earlier 'potential' entry, 'Animated Sidebar Navigation' is both too lengthy and complex, and has a built in interface, to boot. It was a lot of work, and I'd like to reserve it for the time. This latest entry is my consolation offering.

    I'd also like to write an extension tutorial for the one entered that explains the JavaScript I use to create a new window class for the described links. Think I should go ahead with this?

    Submitted to the email address provided, so you can mock my lack of knowledge about these subjects.

    Title of the tutorial is - "Search Engine Optimization: A Starting Point"

    Hope more people submit.
