While I was waiting for someone to respond to this:
It occured to me it would be much nicer and faster for my learning process if I could pay a consultant to join me in a Jitsi video meet, share my desktop with them and have them talk me through how to do some particular procedure or other - I think most people learn faster by being shown how to do something by other people - when they can ask questions etc rather than following written instructions. So a YouTube video is better than written instructions but not as good as an interactive session with a real person. Then I thought of this topic:
and it occurred to me that as we develop a list of volunteer or paid consultants from people like me who want to become technically competent enough to then go on and act as a consultant to the next generation of Aragon users, that it would be good, if instead of actual financial transactions, that “trainee” consultants could build up a “debt” of negative tokens or something that are then paid off as they, in turn, then help other people get up to speed. It would be effectively “paying it forward” - and might allow faster technical development for a larger number of would-be consultants?
If this doesn’t make sense but sounds interesting, I can develop the idea a bit more . .
