Hi Kian,

I do share your concern regarding rating when personal interests and  
money are involved.

At the same time I disagree when it comes to "which websites deserve  
to be there"!

It would be bad to see _only_ small projects on the first page. It  
would be _as_ bad to see only huge websites of big companies up there.  
TYPO3 has the reputation to be very flexible yet very complex...  
Useful for big projects ...

IMHO TYPO3 is also efficiently usable for small and medium size  
projects on a high quality level and that is an important message,  
too. Showing a good mixture of projects would serve TYPO3 and the  
community best.
