Thinking of PledgeBank uses

PledgeBank is now well and truly in testing, so we’re spending lots of time finding people to help us test it. One idea Chris just had is to try out a money pledge, but a simple one which doesn’t need any more code. For example “I’ll pay £10 towards a £750 cow at if 74 other generous people will too”.

We’re thinking of ideas for what charity would be suitable, add your own to PledgeBankPossibleUses on the wiki. It needs to be a capital project, that you couldn’t give less towards and it make sense, so that the pledge aspect works. Of course, if you’ve got any other ideas for using PledgeBank, add them there as well, or email us.

Today I’m working my way through bugs. Right now I’m improving the error messages when confirmation tokens are bad, or when they are activated twice. There are several places this needs checking – for pledge creation, signing and for announce messages.
