Ecosystem is biology.

I am conducting experiments of various kinds every day, and measure outcomes, make hypothesis and verify its outcomes. Recommendation is same, if software is free and functions for playing, include it, and then see contributions coming or not coming. Make experiments instead of blocking public access to free games.

It is hypothesis, though quite in contradiction to purpose of game jams as how you described it. Do you see contradictions?

Either you should keep the purpose of game jams or purpose of popularity by quality. Choose one.
