12. Developer Bounty Programs - numbersprotocol/community-support Wiki

Here at Numbers Protocol, we are firm believers in FLOSS (Free-Libre Open Source Software) and the power of community development. Time and time again, the developer community has demonstrated their creativity and ability to enhance existing projects. In the FLOSS spirit, we invite community to join us in building the products and services that run the Numbers Network.

To further incentivize contributions, we are excited to announce Numbers bounty programs as a way to reward community members who actively contribute to the growth and improvement of Numbers Protocol.

"Hey @AKT4UnMe, I would apologise if my comments came across as a disagreement to your suggestions or as if they are suited only to the marketplace or as if marketplace suggestions cannot be posted here. That's not what I meant. It's also not necessarily the case that the directory system would be too difficult of a task for the team to pursue. It is completely upto the team to choose a solution and go for it, since I am just a passionate community member like you and we are here to provide suggestions as we think are suitable.

What I wanted was that I start that conversation since we had a similar goal in our mind (to organise media files) so that we could talk more about if one is more feasible than the other for now. It could also be the case that both are seen as good options by the team. As I said, I would be happy if both are adopted.

However, I do think it would be better if you could take your time and be specific to any part of this ecosystem (or may be even group together parts for your suggestions) and mention it in your issue Title or the Body whenever you post your suggestions. That helps the team and others get exactly the point you want to be delivering.

@tammyyang, @ethanwu155 and their team have been so lenient and pushing for a community-friendly session in this Phase so no one has to be a programmer to be able to post issues. So you are very welcome to post your suggestions here. We can then discuss about solutions within ourselves and the team and let the team do their part. I think the team would be happier to listen to photographers like you and the issues you have with the products.

By the way, I have been more of a UI/UX enthusiast looking for improvements in the Capture App (hence my submissions about the app) and yet to give a good look at the Capture Club (I have some in my mind, need to narrow it down before I post). So I am really looking forward for your submissions." - 3 votes by KNctrl-alt
