The one important bit: This should be a prompt to prioritize the essential overhaul of how-it-works such as addressing the feedback in Ideas on how to present crowdmatching and budget limits
Also, in general, there’s a whole need to have the how-it-works page itself capture the same values we’re expressing in the first-cut form. So, the idea that this is about increasing the percentage of patrons, building greater cooperation… the “are you in?” framing of what we’re asking from patrons…
As is, the page is nowhere near adequate for “do you understand how Snowdrift.coop works?” — so while that is a different topic, let’s prioritize that in conjunction with this outreach.
Would it make sense to get some feedback or otherwise survey projects on their understanding so that our how-it-works presentation gets improved in part through this same outreach?
- not sure “one or more” is needed
- “available on a free/libre/open basis” could be appended to the above item instead of a separate checkbox (and perhaps “entirely free/libre/open”, although I see that’s addressed in the secondary form, so not sure)
- maybe change “enable me/us to produce and/or maintain more and/or better public goods” (so many "and/or"s) to something like “enable production and/or maintenance of our project(s) at a level not possible otherwise” or similar to capture the sense of just “the funding could make the difference”
Overall, this looks excellent. Great work
