I’m a little sick and a little high so tell me if this doesn’t make any sense.
I was thinking about the function of DMs and ways to keep everyone safe. While I still don’t have an answer for that I was thinking about a way for byters to officially collaborate. Something like a pinky promise … an in-app “contract” with another byter.
You would agree to collab through some interaction on the back-end of the app. This would open up DMs maybe where you could communicate during the collaboration. Then the next post you tag them in will cross promote to their feed and vice-versa. Any revenue (if there is any revenue or s to be had) is shared between the collaborators evenly, by an agreed upon percentage, or by ratios of loops.
It may be far too finicky to implement or completely superfluous but I wanted to dump it before it disappeared.
I think this could be a great way to lift another byter. I would think it would be best to limit it to official creators at first and then maybe have it be an earned reward over time as you add positively to the community. And official creators could offer collabs to non-official creators to help their visibility if you feel they offer something wonderful or unique.
Anyway, just my fevery musings. I hope everyone is doing wonderful.
