Specifically, I'm looking at Mantis, but I'm unfamiliar with the other software. Would appreciate recommendations. In short, for now, I want to be able to assign family members to do chores for Bitcoins without inefficient issuance of tasks. In the future, this may be applied elsewhere if it works as I'd like.

What I'd like to be able to do:
*Assign user groups (general workers, few different categories for specialized workers, managers, admin)
*Have editable category-categories. As in, I want to assign tasks a priority, type of work it is, date/time issued, number of workers required for the task, expiration date/time, user groups eligible to complete the work (and subject to penalty if not completed on time), and the bounty for completion of work
*Create color-coded (by task category, not priority) tasks which are relayed on a website page
*Allow workers to "accept" a task, which is displayed to others so multiple people aren't working on the same thing when unnecessary
*Push new tasks out to workers via email if equal to or above a certain priority
*Alert workers if required # of workers have accepted a task
*Set expiration/due-by dates
*Allow workers to claim a task has been completed, then assign the task a new progress category ("Claimed Completed")
*Allow multiple workers to claim completion of the task
*Workers need to be allowed to comment on work

It's also be nice if it could::
*Allow workers who collaborated on the completion of a task to mark a % they contributed, which is then confirmed by other workers. Workers should also be able to mark a % of work others did, but it needs to be verified by all workers and the manager. As well, it'd be nice if the bt could automatically split the bounty among workers by the % of the task they completed.
*Be extremely easy to use
*Not cost me a dime
*Maintain a db which keeps track of the bounty balance of workers


In a perfect world, it should also be able to:
*Interface with Bitcoin and award bounties automatically after a manager or admin approves the quality of the work
*Penalize all workers who are able to complete a task if that task passes the expiration time by creating a negative balance which must be overcome with successful work

Bump. I have a hard time believing a nerd has not attempted managing his kids Dwarf-Fortress-style.

This seems similar to what you’re talking about. The only thing it doesn’t have is the ability to reward with bitcoin. It does allow you to charge an account and make purchases directly to Amazon. It's an online tool but if you could convince them to accept bitcoins they could interface directly with spendbitcoins.com to buy Amazon gift cards and use them to purchase the rewards. Maybe Steve from Bitpay could call them to discuss the possibility and help them set it up if they’re interested. 

There are many parents on this forum and it would be a good project for Bitcoin. If myjobchart.com was convinced to accept BTC it would be good for them as they would have a community of customers ready to immediately spend for the purchase of future rewards for their kids. Paying children in BTC would also build a future generation ready to accept transfer of value using BTC as second nature (like spending fiat).   
Oooh. Thanks, I'll look into that.

No, this is unworkable. I must either assign my wife the status of "child" or be unable to assign her tasks. That said, I deeply hate having read Valerie Solanas' books, so maybe now's my chance to feel better.

-seriously, though- I don't think they'll accept BTC. It looks like their revenue stream relies on getting kids to open accounts @ ING. However, they also snag some referral fees from Amazon which, as claimed by a random CSR agent, will be accepting Bitcoin "soon."  Tongue I have a feeling ING paid a LOT for integration, however. That said, given kids are assigned a "points" balance, there's no reason "points" couldn't be tallied off-record and made to represent Satoshis. When kids request cash-outs, parents are effectively just sent a notice that the kid wants money and it's time to pay up -- really no reason the parent simply couldn't assume "points" = Satoshis (though this makes the "saving" option via the site impossibru).

Otherwise, it doesn't allow me to assign priority of task ("Jobs" and "Extra Jobs" categories are acceptable, though), assign due/expiration dates, assign multiple-worker tasks, assign customized user groups, allow workers to note they're working on a task so others don't waste their time preparing, allow the admin/manager to dispute the quality of work (or even that it was done), there is no way to deduct points as punishment, and work is not pushed to workers (outside of just appearing on the screen, which I guess they're supposed to always have open). I'm still leaning toward a bug-tracker.
