Guide to making great buckets

1. How do I format my bucket beautifully?

Buckets use Markdown formatting, a simple type of formatting that works through html. It might sound a little scary, but it's very easy to use!

2. What information should I include in my bucket?

When creating a bucket, you are free to add anything you like in the description! To make your bucket as clear and convincing as possible, here are some suggestions on what you could include:

  • Context: why this idea?

  • Deliverables: what will be the concrete outcome of the project?

  • Breakdown of costs: show what people's funds will go to in more detail

  • Who is going to do the work? (If not just you)

  • Timeline: what deadlines and milestones are there for the project?

  • Link to more details: using markdown formatting, you can add external links. Add a link to a document or external website describing your idea in more detail, to be able to keep your bucket concise, yet give more details to those who want them.
