I am sorry that you don't like my ideas for the revenue sharing. I am not sure if you read the post that money sharing is now canceled after this month due to poor posts on the site. If you haven't read it I would hope that you do before you post again. I would point out a few things though. ShareCG was making a gesture that they would like to not just keep all the money themselves, but share it with us. Their initial good intentions were foiled by spammers. I was simply giving some ideas as to how it could still work. Now in defense of my suggestion:

Downloads seems to me to be the safest. With careful programming, one could monitor what computers download the files posted on the site and only count 1 download per computer. You mentioned that this doesn't help those who have poorer quality uploads or just different taste. I would point out the name of the site: ShareCG. We are here to share our work with others. If its not getting shared then the site might as well pack up and leave. Not only that, but it would solve the problem we are currently having of poor quality spam in attempt to get a buck. Right now we stand in the same position either way: The site stops revenue sharing altogether because of poor quality uploads (aka the beginners and 'different taste' users make nothing) or its linked to ratings or downloads (aka the beginners and 'different taste' users make nothing.) You also mentioned ratings being tainted by multiple accounts. I have not seen this happen on other sites. Usual anti-bot measures are taken to prevent this from happening. If someone would like to sit down and create accounts for hours just to get a dollar or two, go for it, but I think you'd be better off just getting a job. You said this would discourage many artists from the field. I disagree. This is an incentive for creating something useful and beautiful. This industry will never get anywhere if we don't try for these values. This web site won't gain in popularity and users if the posts on it are not what other people want. I will be one of the first to tell you that I will leave if this site doesn't get better art than it has been getting lately. Downloads or ratings would compel me to try a little harder. Not only that but I think the people who spend a long time getting better and making things that I can use DO deserve more. I wouldn't mind making $0 if it meant that the site had good, high-quality models and art for me to use.

Overall, I have given my suggestions a reasonable amount of thought and they seem fairly solid. The only way you could actually sway me on the matter is presenting a better solution, not by tearing down the only ones we have up.
