The bounties last month were filled quickly. This month's bounties have been voted on in the same way as last time, but we've reordered the bounty payouts by approximate amount of work/value rather than the voting priority this time around. You can read more about how the bounty system works if you are unfamiliar here
and check out the public github page for submissions here[github.com]
Without further ado, here are the selected bounties:
- Bounty 1 ($50) - Make gold blocks visible on minimap
This pitch has had quite a lot of discussion both on the official forums and on github. As a result, we will require any submissions to provide an easy way to disable the behaviour serverside for those that feel strongly about it, and will definitely be vetting for code quality.
- Bounty 2 ($30) - Feature Pitch: Entering Crates
This is a historical feature that will require minimal code changes to reintroduce, but clearly has public support. As a result, we'll be requiring that submissions also bring some additional utility to crates if they are to be added to CTF - they aren't currently.
- Bounty 3 ($20) - Make bombarrows deal consistent damage
This is a bug fix bounty and should reduce archer anxiety when using bomb arrows for combat somewhat if tracked down.
As always, discussion of bounties is best undertaken in #development on the official discord[discord.gg]
We're looking for ways to get more voting participation to make the system more democratic, as there have been concerns that the system is "dangerously" susceptible to vote manipulation at the current population levels. We've got a few ideas for this for the coming month, but for the moment, we'll go by the same github +1 system, augmented with occasional polls on discord.
If you have any suggestions on changes to voting, we're interested in your thoughts as well - particularly on what has been preventing you getting involved with the current github voting system. Please let us know below.
