I can understand why they'd do this. It'll make it harder for independents with very little backing to submit now, but at least people won't just submit a bunch of bs.

I like that they're at least donating the money rather than just beefing up their bank account. I'd be cool if they switched the charity the donations go to on a regular basis to sorta spread the love a bit, better yet let people vote on it(preferably greenlight users only) so they get to have at least some say in where the money goes.

$100.00 seems a bit too steep, at least for this service seeing as how the majority of the games submitted might not even be able to make it onto Steam altogether. $20.00 would be much more of an feasible for an Indie dev especially.

You've never had a full time job have you? Even ~ minimum wage you could save that much in a month after rent, bills, and food unless you're already living outside of your means. Most of the indie devs still have regular jobs that they go to. They don't just say, "*bleep* my job, I'm developing a game!"

Most wouldn't make it onto steam, because most of them suck in some way that people wouldn't pay for them, hence the whole reason for the system. If you don't think you can make it on steam, let alone make $100 back afterwards you should really rethink your strategy.
