It's been seven months since I've posted this suggestion and I'm quite surprised that you haven't applied it yet. Seriously, seven months.
So, regarding the competition section, which represents an important opportunity for appliance of skills and gaining experience, I believe it is a bit limited right now. As I have seen, we have some very talented users registered here, so if we only offer them a small place to compete with each other, they'll lose their skills.
The point is, we should make some more categories for design contests; categories like LOTW (Logo of The Week), MOTW (Manipulation of The Week) which - in my opinion - are actually the most important. Signatures are futile and aimless, I may add. Sure, we all started our contribution in "art" through signatures but once we get used to the interface we should step into the next level. We should start making constructive things, like logos, manipulations, program & web interfaces and so on.
So that's what I suggest: go for a change and extend a bit the competition section. At least make the LOTW category. I, among others, would be pleased to participate and exercise my abilities.
