For example, for all of the thousands of hours of blood, sweat, and tears I put into the Sam 1 Parse Errors, I got 2 things from only one person. A slightly used 120 gig hard drive and a brand new 6600GT.

So let's see here, if I put in say, 3k hours (prob a decent estimate since I sank every bit of my spare time into it for about 2 years) and got 2 gifts whose worth totals about $350, I ended up getting paid about $0.12 an hour...

Don't get me wrong, I loved making the mods and even chose to put myself through that madness again, but it would be nice to have some kind of reward other than hearing, 'Nice Mod!'.

How many of you would spend countless hours of your free time for a few compliments? You'd have to be Insane...
Very good post D w K.
But I think I know one person that fits into the last paragraph of your post, Typhoon-man doesn't seem to have anything against people modding for countless hours for no money.

But hell, you deserve a 8800 GTX for your hard work, at least that.
