Bootstrap the Litecoin Community Crowdfunding System

I like your proposal. Yes, I think we should use this forum.

Thenā€¦ (my mind trying to propose something simpleā€¦ kissā€¦ kissā€¦ )

why donā€™t we create a discourse category for it? something like:

Crowdfunding

To mimic Monero CSS, they have this workflow that we could translate into tags:

  1. Ideas
  2. Funding required
  3. Work in progress
  4. Completed tasks

pretty sure the list above would look lame in that the only task I know of besides the very lame litcoin block card which they insist will work and any account in the usa i make says pendingā€¦and the very, very worse game Iā€™ve ever seen web wise litebringer LTC game they have mimblewimble only which MAY do something after 3 years and only real update in that time periodā€¦probably 4 years by the time it is done.

So they would only show the 3 aboveā€¦and would not be a good look IMHO

no development moneyā€¦developers go to projects the pay them before launch ā€¦so this is the
progress you get on no cash IMHO.

Iā€™m confused. Isnā€™t creating an ecosystem the only way we can achieve progress and make developers work on ltc rather than anything else?

i knew some developers back in the dayā€¦they would develop new sh*tcoins for a cut of the

premine or ICO or whateverā€¦there are not enough of themā€¦and they donā€™t really work

for free anymore like back in the day. If you have the skills to program at the level of an LTC

or BTC developerā€¦you certainly can build your own sh*tcoin if you wanted as wellā€¦that

is or was the easy partā€¦keeping the sh*tcoin up and working etcā€¦was the issue to get your $$$

sounds harsh, but heard this more than a few times about lack of BTC and LTC devs that are

not crypto whales with no need for money and have the skills and time

Draft for CSS

We could start using a Monero CSS proposalā€™s like skeleton on this forum. And find a way to build a CSS that fits this community.

For improvements, I think should consider:

  • To not have a repository of ideas
  • We should use Discourse forum as much as possible, including writing a simple plugin
  • People should be able to contributed not being a developer
  • An idea could be implemented by more people than the author
  • We could integrate it to the gitlab/github workflow
  • We could have more contributions from ppl outside our community, including discourse/gitlab plugins developers

I think we could do better than the example below, but this is way better than nothing.

[css] <- if we choose to write a discourse plugin to better display the proposal.

# Introduction

The Litecoin team have been doing very well. Besides regular updates of the Litecoin Core repository, we activated SegWit in 2017, which helped Bitcoin greatly with its SegWit activation. [...]

I am trying to understand how can we build the ccs using external apiā€™s (discourse and gitlab/github).
