Since we starting developing plugins, we’ve been taking some time looking inside out many open projects and we found some of them worth watching and also a learning experience. We were thinking what could be a way to support all those projects growing around the world.
Being said that, we decided to pick regularly some projects and make a little contribution. Nothing to make anyone rich, but a starting point to make visible unique projects or very useful ones.
We have defined some rules for this event:
- The project/s to be considered has to be open source, with preference on WordPress plugins.
- We give preference to newest or starting projects.
- We give preference to original ideas.
- Every two weeks, we will pick a particular project, we will analyze it and explaining why it deserves our mention.
- One analisys will be from 1 to 15 of every month, and the other analysis will be from 16 to end of the month.
- We will publish our analisys and winners around 15 and 30 of each month.
- Every project we consider worth it, will receive U$25. Our initial intention is to give U$50 monthly to those projects who we think it deserves.
- Plugin/projects can receive the donation more than once if there are not contestant or we think the project deserve it.
- The payment will be done through paypal, so better you have those buttons ready!.
- Every project/plugin mentioned, will be listed in a special table Awarded Projects/Plugins, linked to our analysis.
- We reserve the right of reject/accept any suggestions.
We will also raise the number to U$S 100 monthly when StatComm reaches the 20.000 downloads (currently and raising).
What is in it for you?
You have the chance of exposing your open source project/wp plugin and also get a donation! No mistery involved.
