Code Bounty: Bounty Board

Postby Mickyan » Mon Sep 23, 2019 8:57 pm #516344

For 40 USD

Add a new option to request consoles to set up personalized bounties

This would work something like this:
1. Submit a new bounty, you'll be asked to fill in a bounty name(100 char limit or so), additional info (if any), and payout (minimum of 50 credits)
2. As soon as you submit the payout is deducted from the author's account + a 10% additional fee
3. Request consoles send out an audible message about the new bounty creation, additionally, all assistants on the station receive a message on their PDA with the bounty name and payout (if possible, also add a link to apply directly. Make sure it doesn't spam ghostchat. You can seek alternative methods to alert assistants if you feel like it.)
4.At any point the author of the bounty can send the payout to one of the people who applied to the bounty through the console, the author then receives the 10% fee back. Bounties cannot be cancelled manually.

I don't care about the specifics so long as functionality is similar, also I made a quick mockup of what the interface would possibly look like

Top is the main menu that lists bounties, bottom is for viewing a bounty's details

Interested but it would be best to wait on the big tgui update PR that's in the works right now before doing anything with a new UI, particularly consoles

It's a good point, bounty is still available even if it takes a while
