Let the games begin!

I've been working on setting up the beginnings of gamifiction (that is, fake internet points) here on OGA.  If you look at the right side of the menu bar, you'll see a "Leaderboards" entry, where you can take a look at psoples' point totals.

Right now, you receive points for favorites (across all art categories), and comments.  I probably won't be implementing points per art submission, as that's just encourgaed people to flood the front page with small submissions in the past.  The best way to hit the favorites leaderboard is with large, high quality art submissions (those are the kind that tend to receive a lot of favorites).

At the moment, you might notice that the weekly results are roughly the same as the all-time results.  This is because, since I added per-category favorites, I ran our point recalculator function, so as far as the leaderboards are concerned, everyone's points were added today.  This problem will clear up on its own in a week. :)
