  1. Ok, so you want people to go through all this trouble (look at all the steps required) just to get a “chance” that their hero will be featured? And the people who do take all these steps… they get: zip + the satisfaction of having some person recognized on this website, when they could just as easily blog it themselves, or twitter it, or facebook it. needs some fresh ideas for “contests”, and some actual rewards for people who participate, imho.
