    Wil there be updates on the status of the donation prize money or will that only be revealed at the end?

    Anyway, this sounds great, I hope it brings some excellent homebrew. Sadly, I don't have many of the other systems, so my vote will probably be biased toward a PSP homebrew even if there are some that are better on the other consoles.

    The donation fund is a great idea and should create a lot of incentive for some really great work. Another reason why DCEMU is so great!

    the donators will be added to the page all the time

    we will be 100% upfront with this,

    The donation fund is a unique idea from me to give to the coders. any donations from a dollar to whatever is all to the good. coders deserve the credit

    So Wragg, if I donate 10-20$ (for the better of the community, not this competition ) - will I be able for you to link to QJ?

    The voting will take into consideration that the PSP/ds will get more votes but 75% of the votes are by staff and coders so dont worry about consoles with less fans.
