2015 OPENSIM: PROMO: Funding for OpenSim development. A community effort.

Funding for OpenSim development
A community effort

  • OpenSim development is based on the work of a small number of developers.
  • They have to make a living.
  • I hope they get paid a lot for consulting.
  • But that concentrates their work on what clients want.
  • The opensim community has wants, too.
  • And some of us want to pay for specific developments.
  • We are groping for a method to pay as a community
  • Metaverse Traveller proposes a solution.

Initially, I think we might set a target of $2000 which, if mostly funded, can be claimed by any developer, or dev's, that successfully solve the problems and submit effective code to the core Opensim team. I will keep the community informed both here and at OV. -- Talla Adam
OV= Opensim Virtual  Talla Adam also runs Opensim Virtual.  OV is carrying the post and the replies, with pledges, apparently stuck at the top of the community stream.   Good idea. makes the post easier to follow.  

  • I am pledging $500 because I want to encourage this community effort.
  • And because I am glad for the chance to contribute to OpenSim development.

How to handle a Hypergrid address 

From any Hypergrid-enabled grid, paste the address into the address bar of Firestorm and press enter. Or paste it into the world map search bar of any viewer, search, and click Teleport when the destination is found. If it doesn't work, don't give up. Try again in couple of minutes.  Sometimes the first try fails (probably times out).  And try again a few hours later. Some hypergrid destinations are offline part of the day.
