Wow already with the negativity that money sharing has created. well i guess sooner than later.

Well I see some problems if you go to that format of either downloads or ratings.

1. Ratings can be lowered by fake accounts, I have seen this happen with ratings, where you get someone going in rating theirs high, and others low, out of malice or greed, so that would be insane to do, on the fact that someone can post in their links rate with 5 stars if you visit, and most would, so that would eliminate any benefits in that category.

2. Downloads, Not everyone sees the same perception, what is gold to one is crap to another. With this shade of gray in perspective, it would only benefit those in the buisness and limits amatuer freebie makers greatly with that in perspective. When it comes to multitudes of people and someone says one is right and the other is wrong, it just creates a mess of fighting and bickering amongst each other. Where you say quality, that might be the person's best skill, and by saying it is crap might stop the individual from learning more, and creating "gold" in the future, everyones actions spawn forth new paths, and by condemming one, you might be condemming someone's future. Everyone begins somewhere, and i am sure those who are in the elite now, where at the point of creating "crap" in their beginnings.

As for Revenue, you all can argue about this needs to be done, that is right or wrong, till your blue in the face it don't change the fact that there will be people who can't view outside the box, or those that are so far from the box it is invisible to them. There is gonna be arguing no matter what you do where money is involved because of the nature of greed in the first place. Sharecg does not have to offer this boon, but does, it is a great sentiment, and incenative to do so, but with the way people are, it can only go good if the community bands together instead of rip it to shreds. If I remember correctly that is how last time it failed and was cancelled.

Another thing that most people in the buisness aspects forgets once they become a well know source, I have seen this via Renderosity, and Daz, is that they forget that they were once a starting project. As we see in stores such as Rendo, they get a huge split from the artists work, in their favor, if it wasn't for the artists their site would still be that starting level project, if it could even survive it's economical costs to stay afloat, I have seen too many artists just give up cause there is really no money to be made in doing it, and most either have "special relations" or under the illusion of granduer while working for these sites as consignment artists, the point being if it wasn't for us, there would be no need for the site, period, and most of us are amatuer artists, that term hobbyist which most shutter cause they aren't in that Pixar bracket of spending beaucoup bucks for stuff. Honestly I am sick of hearing that assumption, from people. Revenue sharing is great idea, but honestly with this ideals, who does it benefit? The corperate lackeys, or content sellers who has access to awe inspiring things, or those who work their hinds off using limited resources and sharing it with the world. Please clarify that for me.

Also i have noticed someone can keep downloading on their page, to get their downloads up, so that might not be a good avenue to go down.
