I’ve realized that there are two types of proposals. There are ‘top level’ proposals, which carve out specific categories for the foundation. These proposals should be prefixed ‘Budget Category:’, and should receive more scrutiny before being accepted by the foundation.
The other type of proposal would be a category specific proposal. For example, proposing that https://siacentral.com receive a subsidy from the ‘Community Service Provider Subsidy’ category. Threads that want to propose how to spend money within a budget category should prefix their threads with the budget category.
At some point in the near future we’ll make a sticky with all of the budget categories.
