comment - lack of buzz
- would this scenario be appropriate? Say I make a monetary pledge (to be determined by my bank account
). Then some part or all of it would be reallocated to each person that contributed an app/software/script? It's rather obvious that most of the creators here do so by choice, but 'twould seem a nice incentive/recognition in regard to their efforts. Granted, that incentive/recognition would not be substantial for any given individual - more like giving children a lollipop for cleaning their bedroom(s) - but it would be concrete evidence of a task achieved.
You don't seem to be particularly fond of that concept, mouser
, but my public radio station is in process of finishing up a pledge drive, and this would be somewhat in line with their process(es), so it's fresh in my mind.
I also like the thermometer
concept, but with a twist. An indicator - no names attached - of pledges completed. Then link to those completions, although that might best be done when the challenge/pledge period is over, so as to avoid identifying anyone in particular. It might be presented in parallel with a dollar thermometer.
Does any of that make sense? Maybe help merge the disparate concepts that have been voiced?
Edit: six (6) new posts since I started this, but none seem to obviate it.
