Sometimes I want people to get $$$ for their contributions.
When someone posts a long, exceptional sequence? I don't get that feeling.
When folks working on the site itself roll out a sweet new feature? I don't get that feeling.
But when https://www.lesswrong.com/users/lsusr creates a fun and relevant competition requiring them to code up quite a bit of framework/bots and coordinate people? (https://www.lesswrong.com/posts/AHTRyQJtiRin22kth/the-darwin-game-1) I wonder if there's a pool to reward over-and-beyond contributors, and if there is, how much I'd be willing to contribute to it.
Does something analogous exist? "Should" it? If so, what should be "eligible"?
