UX + Research: Dive deep into these topics and submit a proposal (All)

Last week we asked you to pitch ideas in the space of representation, reputation and dark horse one's. This week we ask you to choose one the themes below, and dive deep into it. The goal is to propose experimental design and research direction of one of these ideas/themes, in the form of the "introduction" section. Based on your ideas submitted this week, we have essentially synthesized the themes into three. The one's that are more viable and popular will be set as the baseline for our next milestones, and the submitters will become the DRI.

Prototype tasks: Authoring effective tasks

Over governance and guilds: Reputation and quality decisions

Task feeds - boomerang, etc: Finding the right tasks


Research Engineering (All)

Great job on the issues from last week. For those of you who have been doing tutorials and reading documentation now it's time to put that into practice. This week we will improve and finalize some of the issues we started last week, and we will also complete new ones.

- issue-forms (done), issue-profile (almost there, finalizing), issue-csv (cont'd this week) and issue-task (to be finalized)

- new issues: #645 (timer), #646 (advanced project properties), #647 (template item data_source), #648 (bug, task creation)

announce in #research-engineering that you are working on a particular issue and please let the others know about the progress of the issues you are working on (so that we don't do duplicate work). You are encouraged to work together.

For any questions ping @aginzberg, @dmorina, and @shirish.goyal on Slack #research-engineering

Design (Test Run)

DRI: @karolina and @michaelbernstein

Calling all enthusiastic designers onboard. After a long wait, we're starting the design test run this week. The goal is to design a mockup/wireframe of a messaging system of how workers and requesters would talk to each other, specially while working on the tasks. Messaging could be key to Daemo, since it would help requester clarify a given task, and worker can reach out to them to get feedback on their work. Though MTurk has basic email system for communication, Upwork has borrowed ideas from Slack and created their messaging system. What else can we do?

Use Balsamiq or any tool of your choice, and share your unique mockup/wireframe of the messaging system on Daemo.
