This idea was spawned from the recent "Priorities & Marketing" & "Bitcointalk Presence" threads; and comments made by toast specifically in regards to community-driven marketing:

What if a site were to be set up similar to http://bitcoinget.com/task for micro-tasks needed for marketing?  My hypothesis is this could result in a single location for small, incentivized tasks to be carried out by the BitShares community.  i.e. upvoting reddit posts, liking Facebook posts, creating tweets, checking spelling on sites, creating hashtags, memes, slogans, etc. etc.  Perhaps the payment for each task could be approved in some sort of mult-sig authorization like toast proposed?? 

The problem I'm trying to address is for people like myself  Those who want to help out as much as possible but  don't have the computer science experience for coding projects, have a full time job, or other time/skill-constraining limitations.  However, I do have time during my lunch break at work, or when I get home, to take care of a few small tasks - but searching through the forums and identifying something that can be done is incredibly inefficient.  So a single location where people can go to assist in tasks that would not be as technical as bountiful bounties, to me - would make some sense.  ..Maybe all tasks are at the sub-PTS level?

What do you guys think?  Could this potentially be a DAC that handles all the transactions??

Just thinking out loud here.

I like this idea very much, especially the upvoting of posts, retweets etc would be cool and if it's to be found in one place it should not take more then a couple of mins for everyone. For me a sticky thread would be fine as well which changes from day to day.

We need an incentivizer for sure.

Ideally we should get all the social media people into a group, and a shared purse for that group. I suggested a "Social" childboard under General Discussion here.

The Bitcoin Presence thread gives zero incentive for people to come up with ideas or to flesh them out or to post them. The same will be true of any thread focusing on reddit or anything else.

This is a perfect interim idea. It's not decentralized yet but we can always decentralize down the road. I vote in favor of this approach.

Too much unnecessary centralization around this forum. What if the forum is ddosed like Bitcointalk?

Agree. Something like bitcoinget and the "AskPeers" you suggested would be awesome if executed properly. In sum, we need some brilliant way to put the crowd to work.

Uhh I like it a lot!  :D
Something like this http://bitcoinget.com/task would take a while to set up but would work efficiently I guess and would attract attention in itself and invite more people to the community.

And don't forget to make it viral. Referral incentives.

Phrase it like this "Be an early participant in the new economy, work for a DAC and earn Bitshares".

Something similar to that would work great.

I'm sending CLains 150 PTS to allow him to start a micro bounties campaign. Keep your eyes open for his MB's and post ideas if you have them. B
