Not all users are created equal (and not all users like finding that 
out). You definitely identify your key users and try to make them 
happy, but I don't do that unquestioningly. Sometimes, even a key 
user gets too far out of hand, and you risk mutating them into trolls.

It's not ugly at all. it's managing a group of people. The more a 
person contributes -- the more slack they get cut, and the more I 
value their opinion. What you put in, you get out.
