Judges'' comments

Proposal: Turning around a 10 billion dollar scam Contest: Consumption of Products & Services 2014 Thank you for your contest entry. We appreciate your willingness to share your ideas and also the time and effort you put into developing a proposal and submitting it to the contest. We have reviewed your proposal and found that it contained intriguing elements; however, have chosen not to advance it to the next round of competition. We encourage you to keep developing your idea. Transfer your proposal to a Workspace to re-open it, make edits, add collaborators, and even submit it into a future contest. You can do so by logging into your account, opening your proposal, selecting the Admin tab, and clicking "Move proposal". We welcome you to stay involved in the Climate CoLab community: support and comment on proposals that have been named Finalists, and vote during the public voting period to help select the contest’s Popular Choice Winner. Climate CoLab will be opening more contests throughout the year and you are welcome to submit your proposal to those contests as well. Keep up the great work. We hope that by working together, we all can create solutions that wouldn't otherwise be possible. Sincerely, Contest Fellows If there are additional comments from the Judges & Fellows, they will be included below.

The proposal is quite interesting and not too unreasonable.

However, the idea of bartering for charity is not new, it has been tried before with mixed success. Because this proposal doesn't add anything fundamentally new that would make it more likely to succeed, we think it would be rather low impact.

It may well be possible to get some developers to help out, but without a good marketing plan and a very serious effort, the project seems unlikely to succeed.

That said, this is actually a very good proposal among the ones we received. Unfortunately we can only let so many proposals through to the next round, so we had to make a tough decision. We do however encourage you to continue working on your idea.
