I read Kerry's post in a totally different light - but I know that he will set me straight if I am wrong. This is strictly my interpretation:
What did I read in Kerry's post? Two things:
1. I believe his question addresses why someone who needs a design does not purchase one of the libraries available in the program. In other words, WHY are people not buying more libraries? Is it simply that nothing is available that attracts people? Is it the selling price? Is it something else???
2. Your question: Why are more people not submitting their designs to the program? This issue might be secondary, if what IS available is NOT what people NEED or WANT.
I believe that Kerry hit it on the head, when he asked WHAT is it that people need. I have been thinking about this for some time, and I might post something in the near future. This is a crucial issue, as it gets to the root cause of lack of participation, whether on the buyers' side, or simply on availability.
Is it possible that a simple answer is marketing? Or pricing? Or... someone please chime in...
