Hi Stefan! Usually not. We know, that rules changing doesn’t help.

But sometimes, very rarely, we add bonuses on-the-go. Like this time we believe that this bonus will help to pay attention to ideas, published by community members, and implement solutions, that community requested and voted for. And there is still 10 days to submit the app and one week more to polish it. We believe this bonus will not harm anyone. If it does - we can discuss it.
