On the CoMakery platform, you can find tasks to work on, projects to contribute towards, and missions that inspire you. This is a new way of bringing together talented people from around the world to focus their energies on a diverse set of projects and problems.
As a user, it is important to understand the hierarchy of the CoMakery platform. Below, we’ve highlighted the main definitions needed to easily navigate the site as both a contributor and project owner. Below is the hierarchy of the CoMakery platform, from broadest to most discreet.
Missions: These are overarching themes that we think are high-value to the world and our community. Whether they are dedicated to climate-focused improvements leveraging distributed ledgers, or helping to democratize the arts by bringing paying jobs to artists in areas where none exist, these are umbrella initiatives that projects usually live under. Here's an example of a Mission:
Projects: A project is started by one owner, but can expand to have many admins. Projects can have very specific timelines, or they can be ongoing initiatives that continually add tasks and opportunities for contributors to work on.
- Have tasks within them
- Are associated with a token
- Can capture and record your interest in them
- Can be public for everyone or private to a select group
Here's an example of a Project:
Batches: A Batch is grouping of tasks - something used by Project Admins but not seen by Contributors. These batches make it easier for Admins to keep their tasks organized - usually by the skills required for the tasks at hand (example: tasks involving coding and dev ops would fall under Software Development Batch).
Tasks: This is what we are all really here for - what can we do, what can we work on, what is available for contribution that can make a difference? The answer is tasks.
Tasks are created by Project Admins as the items that all together, when completed, move their project forward.
If you have the skill set, you can pick up any task publicly available on the site. Start by visiting the ‘My Tasks’ tab in the header navigation.
