More Skill Categories?

I am so new here (one month old) so forgive me if this as been discussed before.
Have you guys thought about expanding 'classes' or divisions of members beyond the main open class and the apprentise class?
I am disabled and thus have lots of time on my hands. This has kept me from getting too depressed about my disabilty, so I'd like to have more contests. But the top 10 people here will ALWAYS win the 'skilled' class and the apprentice class doesn't have enough contests. (Too far inbetween),
Question: Could there be a middle class, open to all except the top 10 or so?
2. Can we have more apprentice contests?

Hi Laredog, I think this question has been asked before.So far as I can see many people go on to the main contests fairly quickly.

All I want to see is a level playing field like we used to have. I don't think the use of special filters and software to create manga and caricatures is fair because they win on visual appearance rather than the cleverness of the idea.

Better still, separate the types of contest.Be clear about the directions. I would like to see a caricature contest. Personally I really don't like Manga at all as I don't think it is a suitable way to do news parody,

A special contest could be held for Manga only. At least the Manga lovers would be happy to show off their skills and they could put news content into their chops.
