this is the Wiki SectionOnce the community had a look and the necessary changes done, the wiki yes, but it might also be a good idea to pin it at the top of this forum. I suspect some new members won't know where to go/what to do when they want to submit a Proposal
Agreed, but when you come to this forum for the first time and want to submit a proposal there is no link or instructions. It takes a lot of searching to find it. The existing pin only says:it is super (duper) easy to do...t
yupAgreed, but when you come to this forum for the first time and want to submit a proposal there is no link or instructions. It takes a lot of searching to find it. The existing pin only says:
Budget System (Funding / Voting / DGBB) - nothing about submitting a proposal. The proposal generator is excellent, but a new proposal should not go there at all. It must first go through the Pre-Proposal process.
Great - BTW - the last line in the Detail: "4. Give a list of social media that you use and your handle/username on each. As many as possible will help your cause." might have you wondering. This is to enable evaluators to do a con-artist check on the originator.. happy to use parts of your guide above to update Wiki
We already handle monthly meetups and presentations pretty easily as there is not much demand right now, but if we have a lot of weekly meetups and presentations we would need to budget extra for that. Right now that is not a problem but it probably will be in the future. Right now there are not too many weekly presentations and all the ones I have seen are choosing to go directly to the MN owners for funding as most of those are asking for more than i would offer them on there first attempt with no proven track record.
Agreed - this is something that needs looking at soon....It's not too big of a problem now but when there are 10-15+ of those a month and hundreds a year it will be a problem. Someone or a group of people will need to make sure they are all following through with what they say and hold them accountable.....
Yep!....The best way i have found to do this right now is to put the burden on them to preform and then reward them for a good performance rather than pay up front
Hopefully the Proposal Evaluation Committee will solve this problem - see my sig... until it becomes too overwhelming and we have 30-50 proposals to vote on every month. We are going to need solutions soon to prevent that before it gets out of control. The only thing stopping that right now are the high proposal fee's.
