Idea for Joomla Heros core devs and other core members...

Post by darb » Thu Jan 08, 2009 9:14 am

Hi ChiefGoFor and other Joomla heros!

I just wonder if there is a way of doing this Hero of Month for promoting core dev of Joomla and make a donation model for them? I am not a core dev myself so this is just an idea for better and quicker improvments of Joomlas core functions.

I wrote about it in a post comment, see below, but maybe many misunderstood what I mean about it bcs there was no reaction about it or comments.

Anyhow this idea is just another step for helping core dev financially and also making them focus on the core dev of Joomla with this donations contribution model from the whole Joomla community.

Many core devs seems to have other projects and maybe thats also bcs they need the bread and butter that we all depend on. This Joomla Hero donation model may help some of them to commit better for a faster and better Joomla future improvements and thats good for everyone that is also commited to Joomla of course.

Just an idea to consider.

My post comment see link ... ke-it.html

"The idea about giving donations/credit back to you core devs and other engaged important people behind Joomla.

The concept is named "Joomla hero of the month".:-*

This would be a new person every month who is nominated and is a important core person for Joomla existence and also future development.

Could be a techie core guy or other important guys like Brad etc that help with the community. The hero will be named on front page of Joomla for one month with a resume of what they have done for Joomla and who they are with a link to a private donation page and also with a blog page with all other heros for that 12 month running period they are valid for.

You only have 12 month period when you are active Joomla hero for donations. This test donation period will run for 4 years covering 24 Joomla hero people that will have this status and opportunities for extra cash.

A period for a hero is 1-12 months of donation time.

If you calculate that the community as a hole can donate about 5 USD each for every hero this would be the Joomlas community's appreciation for each guy and also an effort for a hero to be really dedicated to the project.

This could be a good for our heroes to focus on Joomlas core development and for the future improvements.

Well something like that this is the idea.:P
