Here in Portland, Oregon there is a great tool bank which those of us who live in the NE neighborhood can join, and borrow any tool for a week. I think this is a great example of resilience building and economic cooperation. But it is not my project. Can I add it anyway, or must the entry be made from the tool bank itself?
Thanks for the question, Diane!
In general, we'd prefer that people be actually involved with a project if they post it. Part of posting a project is taking on responsibility for updates, sharing information, and so forth. If you're interested in doing that or in reaching out to whomever may be better situated for that, I don't see any strong reason not to post your tool bank project.
Generally, I concur with Stephanie :)
I think Marc should answer this too - but I think it'd be ideal to ask them to post it
We really hope to create a community where people actively learn from each other and it's really helpful to have a project point person who could sometimes answer questions. That said, we don't want Build to add lots of work to people's lives - we hope it makes things easier in many ways. It could be cool if project organizers who want to spend more of their time helping others replicate their efforts while having more people take on the tasks they don't like, and I hope we (collectively) can find ways to make that happen.
Sooo... my answer is maybe! I'd like to see what Marc thinks. I'd love to have this project on Build and hope that they'll want to sign it up. Would you be willing to ask them? And if they don't want to sign it up you could, and it'd be especially cool if you'd want to help keep it up to date and answer questions about it if they arise. You can join the Builders' TimeBank and take timebank hours for your efforts, from the BuildFTW account.
Sorry for the long and wishy washy answer!
ps thanks for looking around and wanting to post a project!
