    Default DD code of summer?

    I got just an idea when i combined two sites together. I listened to some podcasts on www.ecca-london.org and found some pretty good information there. For artist out there definetely a good source. And I strolled through the list of the summer of code (soc). Now, the idea is simple: what if some of us team up (collaborative working) and compete against eachother. We need to bring forward a project in every category listed on DD. The winners get of course the glory of being the best and a super duber new icon.
    Any thoughts on this?

    I think it's a pretty neat idea.

    ah, good point. I think that should be a "must". All finished products should be added into the DD library.

    I think they should be offered/posted at least I don't know if they must be added.

    It really depends on the script. If it has mass appeal, is well written, is easy to implement, etc... then I'm sure ddadmin would consider it. You have to realize the scripts are designed to be plug-and-play.

    I'd love to do this kind of thing but for something a little more complicated, perhaps. It need not be featured on DD. There are other venues for useful scripts/applications.

    If you guys are serious about doing this, I urge you to go forward. Let me know if you need any design/front-end help.

    Rather than new scripts, couldn't we have an organised effort to clean up the scripts already there? I tried to organise something to that effect a few months ago, but there was little enthusiasm. Most of the DD codebase is, frankly, embarrassing.

    I won't say I disagree, but I always hated it when I had to clean up and do documenting for someone else. I have some ideas to what rules/level the scripts and teams must apply. First I have to see if there is any interest in this.

    To get some more momentum I put down some ideas/questions which needs to be considered:

    Number of team members
    Start and end period of contest
    Applications online and/or off-line
    30 seconds explanation of working projects
    Voting system
    combining some categories or all standalone

    There need to be more ideas to get this thing concrete so proposals are more than welcome.
