As you heard before, I’m doing military service and it’s some kind of non-profit job right now :-/
Some days ago, An idea came in my mind, I discussed with some close friends about if this idea could work, and now I want to talk with you about it.
The idea is some kind of sponsoring Choqok development by it’s users:
There are so many features we can implement! from new microblog services (like friendfeed) to additional useful automatic tasks (like translation of dents/tweets)
We define some kind of minimum donation requirement to implement one special feature/idea.
And then users who want to have that feature sooner, and like to participate in its development, will decide to donate some amount of donation required to implement it(Whatever that is important to them)! And then, After donation for that idea reaches the min, I’ll notice you, and will work on it!
This way, Choqok development speed can increase much more, and I won’t need to give up working on it and do another job.
It’s mostly about Choqok right now, but can be applied to Blogilo if there’s interest about it. and to any other KDE app later, if it works! ;)
Now, How we can implement it!?
Well, The simplest way I think (I’m not a web dev ;)) is running a forum, and discussing about them there! and in donation page users can add comment, and there’s a good place to mention that this donation would be to contribute on which feature! We can make it more automatic later…
What do you think about the whole idea!?
Do you have any idea about the implementation way?
