QuoteOriginally posted by: outrunQuoteOriginally posted by: Traden4AlphaIt seems like the project needs some kind of the roadmap/status tracker and content management system that lets people contribute new research papers (or links to the literature), Matlab code, etc. and others can see the progressions and linkages from math to sandbox code to released code.Has any open source system ever used social media techniques to encourage semi-directed participation? I can envision a system where everyone votes on project priorities and the contributors that address those priorities get points or virtual currency in proportion to the priority of the need they filled. If a person's votes are weighted by their virtual currency earnings, then those that make the greatest contributions to the most crucial needs of the project will have the largest say in the direction of the project. The most valuable contributors could then strongly encourage others to contribute.regarding the voting: I see it more loosely coupled. Someone maintains a sub-library (e.g. PDE solver), and can say "this is my priority of future enhancements", which will be based on requests nby usersWill these ba a place where we can add new requirements/features for an engine/library?
