Howdy all. We had both of these locks fall through and we really need these games to be covered as soon as possible, so we've bumped up our offerings for both games. Please do not file for a lock unless you absolutely plan to follow through and complete the guide. At this point we'll likely be giving the locks to the first person who applies, unless there's bad history with us and that user. We're also expecting the first draft of the guide to be available as soon as humanly possible, so please don't lock if you plan to wait a week to get started.
In the meantime, we're going to look into some form of "punishment" for users who drop locks, in particular once the game comes out. Maybe preventing them from locking another bounty for X months or something, because it really hurts us (and in turn, makes the bounty program less appealing to the higher ups) when we have to scramble to get coverage while a game is still popular.

I would write one Spider-Man as I'm not sure how well I could pull one off for it even if I spend a lot of time playing it and with what I have planned between now guide wise by the end of next month. Although I kind of agree about if something like this comes up that there should be something done in case there may have been others interested in writing for that particular game to claim the bounty.
