More Prep and an International Video Chat

Paul O'G made a request that at first I was dismissive about but am now reconsidering. He suggested making the tracking of the coveted "GIMP" award dynamic so that we can all see the ebb and flow as people battle for painting challenge immortality.
The calculations behind the GIMP award are both arcane and astonishingly complicated. In fact they are likely beyond the grasp of you mere mortals. Yes, it takes a mathamagician years of toiling at our trade before we can even grasp the very basics of the calculations in their terrible beauty and exquisitely painful exactness. I worry that some of you who are not "Math-Hardened" may be driven insane by the exposure to the thinking of the gods.
That said, this year has seen very divisive level of political discourse and I think the watchword going forward should be "HUUGGGEEEE Transparency" so I am reconsidering. What do you think, Dear readers? Do you want to peak behind the curtain? Can you handle the truth?
