Hi @all,

I just received the message below which reminded me to remind you to please port your Google Code in ideas:

"Hi GCI Org Admins,

Firstly, a reminder that Google Code-in starts this coming Monday, 22 November at 8:00 UTC [1]. 

Secondly, a plea to you: please input your tasks for the students in Melange [2] ASAP. Please visit the site and click on "Create a task" or "Bulk Create Tasks" on the sidebar. You can queue up tasks as well so that the students can't see them on the first day and you're prepared if we get a lot of requests.

[2] - http://google-melange.com

Thanks,
Carol

P.S. Chris told me to tell you all he's worried about this, so please keep in mind he's watching as well to make sure you all do it. :-)"

Best regards,
Marcel

Hi everyone,

I have started porting my tasks from the Limesurvey idea page to the Google Code in App. To have a consistent layout of all tasks I created a simple template which everybody can/should use for their task description.

One problem I haven't found an answer for yet is how to set the "time to complete". It's hard to estimate the time it takes to complete a task and to find tasks that are not too capacious. Keep in mind that a student receives $100 when he/she has finished 3 tasks from our list. Therefore I think that a task in general shouldn't take more than 4-8 hours which makes the student earn about 4-8 Dollars per hour (just a general suggestion). Bigger tasks could be splitt up into 2-3 sub-tasks.

Please port your ideas as well, add new ones and apply to be a mentor. This is a great chance to improve documentation, test new features, getting translations updated and so on!

Best regards,
Marcel

Hi everyone,

for your Google Code-In mentorship please register at 
http://socghop.appspot.com/
and let me know your user ID so I can add you as mentors accordingly. 
(please send  a short email to me)
Anyone frome the LimeSurvey team is invited to mentor - so don't hold back.
Also don't be afraid as these are very short mentoring periods - usually 
only a couple of days with one student.

Thank you!

Best regards from Hamburg/Germany
