I'm shamelessly paraphrasing MethodX's topic in order to solicit the community on what level of payrate you consider acceptable for a developer delegate who's not working directly on the core software.
As you might know I'm the developer and maintainer of BitsharesBlocks.com, and I've been running three delegates up till now. With the upcoming change to delegate payrate I intend to move to a single paid delegate, and maybe an additional "free" 0% payrate delegate to help support the network.
I've been working very hard on BitsharesBlocks and I consider it now mostly feature-complete, but I'm still actively working on it and will of course keep on improving it. I also intend to start one or two new projects, possibly in collaboration with Cass.
The first one and most likely at this point is the "facebook for delegates" site that was mentioned briefly in another thread, and if time permits I'm still thinking of doing something similar to Ripplecharts for Bitshares.
Either way I will be working on projects for the Bitshares eco-system, and I hope the community will allow me to keep devoting my free time to it. I've even arranged with my day-job that for all of 2015 I will drop down to an 80% position in order to spend more time on Bitshares projects. This of course means my salary is dropping by 20%, but that's a sacrifice I'm willing to make!
So my question to you is, what do you feel is an acceptable payrate for my contributions? Don't be shy, I won't bite even if you say 0%
