This thread is for readers to post story requests or questions, along with how much you're willing to pay. Readers should post a first and second prize, so that a writer knows that they'll almost certainly get something, besides the devtome earnings. The pledge can be in any cryptocurrency that is traded on vircurex.

Writers who want to make extra money should look over this thread and see if there's something that they want to write about or answer.

A good format for a story request is the following:

Story: ?
Minimum Length: X,000 words
First Prize: ?
Second Prize: ?

Scenario: ?

Tagging this to keep up with the thread, but also there needs to be timers set on each request. For example, a few days or a couple weeks, so that there is a known end date.

My request does not have an end date, Edd wrote that he started drafting something:
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=240540.msg2600204#msg2600204

but I haven't heard anything else since. People can add an end date if they want.

Thanks!

I'm up for other requests/bounties as well! Hopefully it's not an issue to post this here but I'm also looking for other writing jobs (I accept BTC, DVC, DGC, MNC, FTC, WDC, LTC, PXC and NVC). If anyone's interested, toss me a PM and we'll go from there!

Nothing against the writing, but please do not spam with extra threads like that.   If you want to post excerpts of your writing, then do it here on this thread.

problem is if i post a chapter, and then post another in a day or two, the posts get separated by comments. I thought it would be cleaner to have a separate post that i can edit, adding more work than having cut-off chapters that members will have to search for amongst all the comments.

This is why you create temp replies. Ex. "Reserved for Chapter 2" and on. So if you're going to have 10 chapters, create 9 replies (for chapters 2-10) that way you can lock them in prior to comments.

Why not just stick it on the Devtome in the first place?  You can do a separate page for each chapter.  Then in a thread like this, simply post a link to the chapter you want feedback on, and people can go and read it on the Devtome.
