The process of co-budgeting is open! Here: http://cobudget.co/#/groups/99 (only accessible for those who have been invited).
To be fully transparent, I received only one request (@herrmellin) to be added to the process. We could wait more, and so on, but I decided (ask for forgiveness rather than permission) that frequent Transformap contributors that were already in co-budget would be entitled with a say in that co-budget process. The goal is less about finding the perfect ‘right’ solution than getting the experiment further going.
Each of the 8 co-budgeters, have been credited with 250€ (not $ as the interface suggests…). They are free to spread that amount in the next days among the six proposals. As soon as a proposal reached the minimum amount, proposal holders will be informed and arrangements (payment and reporting) can be started.
Note that for each proposal an amount is specified, it is some kind of minimal amount for that proposal to be funded. However, I suggest that if a proposal didn’t reached that threshold we’ll ask the proposal holder if they still want to get the money and run the proposal (or part of it). Note that a proposal can be ‘overfunded’: e.g. the WSF proposal has a 500€ amount but it was clearly expressed that they looking at 500-700€. If a proposal is good enough, why not give it more money so more can be done!
And please note that any funding that is being allocated cannot be reallocated, so take a moment before your split.
Please don’t wait too long - this week would be perfect!
