NANY has been a great event here at DC for many years, and everyone gets into the fun: it's a real community effort.

It takes a lot of work to get the NANY Entries out the door by December 31; and it takes a lot of extra community effort to get a highly polished product done.

This year we've decided to formalize that process a little bit and extend the NANY Rewards to those volunteers that help our coders get their entries done.

So, What's a NANY Volunteer?
A NANY Volunteer is someone who formally offers specific skills and services to our coders and enters into a partnership with a NANY Entrant to perform a specific task.

How does it work?
  • If you have a skill, or skills, to offer the NANY Entrants you can reply to this post and list what skills you'd like to offer.
  • A NANY Entrant who can use your assistance will get in contact you (maybe PM is best?) and detail what they need.
  • If you agree to help you will be listed as a volunteer on their project page.
  • If accepting that request alters your offer of assistance you should edit your reply as required. It's pointless knocking back requests if you've had your available time taken!
  • Offering and accepting NANY Volunteering services is a serious undertaking, you're entering into a type of partnership with the entrant, so it should not be taken lightly; though it doesn't need to be a huge task either.
  • You can volunteer on as many entries as you like!

What can a NANY Volunteer do?
In reality, they can do anything that's required. Some ideas are:
  • Create Icons
  • Create SplashScreen
  • Create Screencast Video
  • Create DCUpdater File
  • Create Sounds / Music
  • Create / edit RedMine Page
  • Beta Testers
  • Text reviewer / editor
  • Translations

Why Have NANY Volunteers?
NANY Volunteers iis a recognition of the great array of talent we have here at DC (i.e. not just coding) and of what was already happening (in many respects). I always thought that the people who went out of their way to help the Entrants (by testing and ideas, etc) were part of the Event anyway: NANY Volunteers just formalizes the process a little.

It is also a way of ensuring that the NANY Entrants are well supported.

What Happens if there is not a Volunteer that's Offered the Skills I Need?
Make a request for one: no one will know unless you ask!

I can help translating between English and German. And I can test all the Linux applications; windows applications I can only test if they run under wine.

Evening all.....

I'm happy to participate... But my brain is a bit empty on ideas.....

If there is anyone out there, who might have a good idea, unique, one that is useful and would be popular...  and would like to form a PARTNERSHIP and we'll create something together?  i.e. you come up with the idea(s) and I'll do the coding... Then I am up for that!

It'll be a partnership effort (assuming thats allowed????)

Probably best to PM me if anyone is interested???

Cheers

There is nothing wrong with partnerships, in fact, I've been pondering lots of other ideas to encourage group entries (I've been thinking of Community Entries). I love the idea  Kiss

You may want to check out the Ideas Thread, and maybe make your offer there?

You may also want to give a brief idea of what you're experienced with  undecided

I'm also happy to assist in any way that's needed.  I can turn my hand to a lot of things (but, on the debit side, I'm old and grouchy)...  Wink

fenix, I can help with your addressbook project.  But I have zero programming skills so it would have to be in other areas.

I'm looking for assistance with my FarrWebMetaSearch FARR plugin. The plugin can show search results from a web page whereby the results are extracted with a regular expression. So I'm looking for people who are either fluent with regular expressions or are more patient than I am Wink If you're interested please PM me so I can send you a preliminary version of the plugin and some instructions.
