I had some ideas that might help such as:
Categorize a bit differently:
1) My first fattie - for new users or lurkers who just want to try a fattie for the first time. Basic recipies and techniques to encourage users to try something new and to post.
2) Theme fatties - It's summer time, so either theme ingrediants or pairings (summer sports + beer = buffalo hot wing fattie?)
3) Creative fatties - the usual "Wow" fatties that are new and innovative.
Judging could be kept to option 2 and 3, and maybe instead of judging, we as a community get to supply captions or something to each fatty entry. Best fattie + catpion wins.
Also maybe try to split up the entry time into 2 weekend, Saturday + sunday with 4 different words to allow people more time to cook. Pictures have to be up the day of the word, but you have 4 chances to enter.
I'll think about this whole thing and if people want to do this, or have ideas let them loose. I really like seeing all the new ideas and testing on these boards lately so I just hope something like this will stir some creative juices!
