Just a few quick updates to/from yesterday's post:

[personal profile] yvi is considering a "sponsor a dev" program. Details still forming (I think it's fair to say it's in the brainstorming phase), but the idea would be that you would pay (in DW credits - see this week's news post) one of DW's volunteer developers to work on a(n approved) development project of your choice, fast tracking it to implementation. Subject, of course, to the dev's willingness to take the bounty, available free time, etc. But it could be a nice way to help direct the site's growth (or at least get a pet feature to play with) while raising money.

[personal profile] cesy liked the idea of sponsoring random users and comms (still could use thoughts on how to organize and encourage that, if anyone has any thoughts), and added the suggestion that we could sponsor participants in Three Weeks For Dreamwidth. I think that could be a really neat tie-in. Perhaps we could get people to pledge to sponsor X number of people (for 3 or 6 or however many months) who have free accounts and take part in the fest?

[personal profile] sharpest_asp is running a contest in [community profile] musing_way. Details are in this post. Prize is 6 months paid time.

There's also a contest in [community profile] vidding. Details are in this post. Prize (awarded to a random poster to the comm) is 6 months paid time.

I'd like to run a similar contest here. Would still appreciate any input on that. Should I make it a random poster? The best posts to the comm during the Three Weeks For Dreamwidth anniversary fest? Any other ideas?
