For just under $4k we can provide infrastructure to promote global IRL activations, see what Nounish virtual events are happening in different languages (Spanish/Portuguese/more TwitterSpaces), help non-English speaking people get onboarded to http://thenounsquare.info/ as listeners as well as guests, and much much more. let’s gooo
What I've been up toSince April, I have been working on Nounish Projects, many of which have been WordPress sites. I am on the NounPress team, so any work that I do will also be available for that project. Additionally, all of these are cc0.
Projects are often limited because the builders didn’t plan for the cost of amazingness. They often don’t even know what is available.Though we can do a fair job with free plugins we can seriously expand our proliferation with several WordPress plugins and API connections. After looking at the costs of the plugins for the sites that I am working on, I found that it is less expensive to buy large licenses in some cases. I would like to purchase the WordPress Plugins and API services below, and where there are extras, distribute them to Nounish Buidlers in the same way that metamonk distributes nouns.domains. First come first served, unless you prefer an approval process. In which case, I am happy to facilite that.
Under construction (Launching in Aug)
I want to build things that look like this
My Wish List
The Events Calendar Pro Ultimate Bundle
$1,999 per year will cover 10 sites
This is a suite of plugins for events, which include, among other things:
- Allowing users to search for events by category, tag, venue, organizer, day of the week, time of day, and price.
- Advanced filtering in the back end
- Advanced Widgets
- Recurring Events
- Venue and Organizer Pages
- Support for Virtual Events
Google maps API ServiceThe above also requires a billing account for the google maps API. That has been free so far, but I will keep my eye on it. :)
Translation APIs and pluginsFrom Google: “If you live in an English-speaking country, you may not have considered translating your website content. However, webmasters are increasingly recognising the importance of including content that appeals to a global audience, and which addresses them in their mother-tongue languages. After all, just 27% of Internet users are English speaking according to the World Internet Statistics. Moreover, a study carried out by the Common Sense Advisory found that a massive 85% of online shoppers would only purchase from websites that discussed the products in their own language even if they were able to understand other languages used on the site.”
Both of the translation plugins below allow users to override machine translation on a case by case basis. Having worked with Nounish Builders in 6 different languages, we found that both are required for those 6 languages to be understandable. Between the two, over 40 languages will be available on our websites.
DeepL Pro API
DeepL is known to be the best available machine translation mechanism. There is no limit to the number of websites that can use it. The cost is $65.88 for 500,000 characters/month + $25.00 per 1 million characters.
Connects DeepL to WP and provides widgets, shortcodes, etc. for language switching.
$255.48 per year for unlimited sites.

I am having the time of my life, and empowering others to have the time of their lives. I cannot put into words what prooliferation of the NounsDAO means to me. Thanks so much for your time. I’m off to The Noun Square!
