Connecticon Rewards System for Webcomics

UPDATE: Email exchange with Connecticut Staffer at Journey Into History Blog provides further information regarding Connecticut guest policy.

I guess this is one way to take the subjectivity out of deciding who to invite as a guest of a convention. Connecticon has announced a "webcomic tiers" plan that provides greater perks for webcomic creators attending Connecticon depending on the number of daily unique IP addresses the webcomic receives:

1,000+ UIP/Day - free 3-Day membership to ConnectiCon 2005.

5,000+ UIP/Day - free Artist's Colony Space (includes a 3-Day membership).

10,000+ UIP/Day - free Artist's Colony Table (includes two 3-Day memberships)

25,000+ UIP/Day - free Artist's Colony Table, Green Room access and some help with travel expenses (gas, tolls) and depending on available space a place to sleep and shower.

50,000+ UIP/Day - free Dealer's Room Booth, four 3-Day memberships, Green Room access, all travel expenses and 4-Nights hotel accommodations (Thursday - Sunday).
