I am doing everything I can possibly on the side of all else I have going on in life. I would love to pull a couple more .NET specialists into this project somehow is how I would love to help. I don't think I could ever match wits with someone that is very fluent in .NET and can get a grip on what can be done to take DNN CE to the next level. But believe me I am looking and I have been talking with other mod developers both paid and free asking them to help. We need to grow, newest face I know of is Valadas on Github which has been VERY exciting to see someone with his level and passion join the upper part of the team to help move things along faster. We could use about 5 more of him to join the force along with the other ELITE DNN DEVs that have contributed to this project steadily for years. I beg anyone and everyone to ask your bother, sister or friend that knows a .NET developer to join and help spread the knowledge that was shared with them to help get DNN to the NEXT level. Every little bit of criticism should be accepted as a contribution from the community to help make it better. A loyal team of unpaid developers trying to oil the wheels as they squeek.
Every member should post thoughts helping the direction of efforts with this project. If no one ever talks about an issue even the most simplist it will be overlooked but a squeaky wheels eventually get oil. Be a part of this exciting team full of loving DNN CE enthusiasts I have come to know over the years to know are genuine people trying to help. And the ones posting here or making contributions on github sure feel like a lot of the same type of good folks.
I do have thousands of ideas but I need to put food on my table. One idea I have to help the community as another contribution of mine to you... the community by posting this (which I hope it encourages more people to do) is to put up a donation button.
A donation button that actually pays for outside help to boost certain parts of the opensource project. A place we can drop a dime and see results from that dime... I would LOVE to see this come next on this website as it was my next idea I wanted to share once a site like this existed. I believe you will find LOADS of support that can possibly help bring in more talent to help support the project.
I will be one of the first to hit the donate button, but give it a goal each time something needs done so we know what it goes toward fixed and set a point to the donations collected. Maybe even an option to put what we would like to see our funds go to in general as weight to what will get fixed with those funds. Use developers from the outside world of contributors can help give a boost on things that the community feels it can use the most with those resources gathered for such a purpose. Maybe even an ability to put funds towards different experiences. Such as DNN Admin Experience, DNN User Experience, DNN Performance, DNN NEXT and then those users who are donating can even get in and help give what they feel needs addressed. All for one, and one for all!
