Reviews (Release Notes v3.1)
New features in version 3.1
We have a new how-to video that walks you through the project creation process (but it should be quite intuitive too)!
New stuff in release 3.1
People have asked us where the bounty system falls within the impact markets space – whether posting a bounty will make them a philanthropic funder. (Depends on the bounty.) We’ve clarified various questions about bounties in our new FAQ section.
(H/t Frankie and me.)
Thanks for reading Impact Markets!
Previously projects had a start and an end date. The idea was that we would review a given project at some point after its end date had passed. But that’s a bit weird because (1) the start date has no function whatsoever and (2) a lot of projects are not designed to end or can be reviewed before they have ended.
We’ve removed the start date and replaced the end date with a review date. There may come a time when we’ll completely remove these dates and instead provide a system where project organizers can request a review at any time.
You wouldn’t want someone to waste their time on a bounty that has been completed or that is designed to be done only once and is already in progress. Hence we now have the statuses active, claimed, and closed for bounties.
We now trust donors to be honest about the donations that they register. As such, they immediately count into the score.
Project organizers still get informed of every new donation and have the option to veto it if they can’t find it in their records.
You can now see the total amount that has been donated to a given project and the number of donations.
The project filters should now look less broken on mobile devices, and the default sort order should be more obvious.
