Example text

Potential volunteers need starting points, for example, forums or mailing lists where they can ask questions. A first response should be welcoming of a new potential volunteer, and any possible rudeness, whether incidental or deliberate, needs to be stopped immediately. It is paramount that any project member redirects any privately posed questions to a public forum and avoids answering questions in private; this would be a highly inefficient use of their time. Visitors need to understand that they consume time and hence should do their homework or should be guided to do their homework before asking.

For example, TopCoder introduces a sophisticated ranking scheme, similar to sport tournaments, to rank the skills of community members in software development. Community members often make up their mind to participate in a specific contest if they know the ranking of the participants already enrolled. Through DevOps technologies, Cloud platforms allow users to describe their own software stacks in form of recipes and cookbooks. With the properly specified PaaS recipes, software crowdsourcing project managers can establish a customized cloud software environment to facilitate software crowdsourcing process: (1) A manager utilizes software networking and collaboration tools to design rewarding mechanism to motivate crowd workers and project management tools to coordinate development tasks among crowd workforce by ranking expertise of each individual and matching their skills with the different levels of tasks.
