I am surprised by the behavior exhibited by a few members in this and another thread.

Have you seen his average monthly uploads? That equates to 28.5 images per day.

If you have 25000 contributors and they all have $50 (average of 0 and 100) then that is 1,250,000. Interest a 5%pa is about $50,000. Even if everyone has $99, that is only $100k so it is not millions per year.

We don't even have 25,000 contributors, but only half of that.However, if they would be, do you see a problem somewhere?
