Most users new to the scene ARE proud of their first submissions or they wouldn't post them. Lots of people posts 'teasers' as a means of motivation... feedback gives them a push they may need to soldier on and get the full thing finished. And some people are skilled AND fast.
How about you make a rule to judge each submission fairly based on the actual submission.
Harsh man, harsh! First submissions aren't necessarily bad submissions. The Fallen Angel teaser back in the day was better than most movies that year. Some of the best gadgets out there are less than 100KB, code takes barely no space. Rest sounds reasonable though.
