Over the past year I've observed that some things at DT operate based upon the amount of community response.  It seems that in order for certain things to happen, some threshold of user feedback or involvement must first be reached. 

For example, take a look at the milestone awards: http://www.dreamstime.com/contest.php.  The contributor winners have all been announced, but many of the images do not yet have winners for the designer prize.  It looks like these prizes are only awarded after an image receives enough downloads.

Another example is the holiday season culinary contest: http://www.dreamstime.com/thread_29418.  Very few people have actively participated, and so the contest seems to have just been put aside and not awarded (it was started over a year ago).  When the same prize (a full portfolio review) was offered for music suggestions, the thread was VERY active, and prize was quickly awarded.

Changes seem to happen when enough people make enough noise (remember the Pinterest thread that Cathy stayed on top of?).  But if people don't say anything, the ideas and prizes are put aside quietly.  Has anyone else noticed this about DT?
