Why don't you try hiding the contents of this Thread: until 14th September 11:59 PM ? That way you'd give the posters a much better challenge and equal excitement to contribute.

We want every essay to be different. The one who posts the thread first will get more credit for the originality, naturally; if the idea gets duplicated.
