Best Platform / Ideas on Crowdsourcing for Exam Questions?

I have been tasked with coming up with a recommendation for a process to crowdsource questions for exams published by my company. These exams measure knowledge of various products and are specific to job role. For example, there will be one to three exams for Product X that correspond to the job roles of layman, mid-level user, and advanced user. [more inside]

How to draw people to my GoFundMe page when I don't know anyone.

Trying to fund something on GoFundMe, whose whole principle is asking people you know to fund you. Facebook friends, twitter followers, real-life friends and such. But I don't really have any of those. Not in a sad way, I just don't know many people (that issue sort of comes up in the GoFundMe). So how do I get the word out? Any ideas? [more inside]

How can I achieve my ambitious nonprofit fundraising goal in 60 days?

I have two months to raise $6000 for an educational animal facility in southern Ontario. I need tips on how I can possibly achieve this goal on a crowdsourcing site. I've succeeded at raising $1000 in the past, but that's the limit of my experience with fundraising. My nonprofit is new and we don't yet have an established presence or an established donor base. Should I look for corporate sponsors? If so, what would that meeting look like and who might be sympathetic to my cause? How do I even make the initial approach? [more inside]

Cheap Door to Door Delivery of Flyers

I need to get word out about a neighborhood meeting next week. I know I can (and will) use email to get the word out. However, I don't have everyone's email address. So I am going to use a paper flyer with the info about the meeting. I need to deliver these to about 150 homes. I can walk around and do it myself. But I was wondering if there were any sources out there to crowdsource this kind of job. What would be a reasonable payment? I need the hive mind to help me.

Crowdsourcing a quilt?

I want to have a quilt custom-made for a gift - I don't know anyone w/the time for hire, and want to be able to see some of the maker's work up front to get an idea of their skills (reviews from other customers would be a great bonus, too.) Is there a 99 Designs-style site that would let me crowdsource this project?

Crowd Activations for Event

Hey, Hive-minded: Please help me brainstorm a list of large scale, crowd activated activities for an event/concert/festival setting. Twitter walls, dynamically color changing beach balls, kiss cams... the more interactive the better, but anything that brings the audience together with a unified activity they could be part of or featured in.

A crowdsourced poll repository?

A political pollster called me last night with three questions and afterward I wondered if there is a site that lets people who receive these calls enter as much information as they can about the questions and the organization asking them. Presumably such a site would be searchable and also yield useful metadata about the types of questions being asked and polling organizations themselves. My google-fu fails me. Do you know of any sites that are to what I describe?

Help me crowdsource an archival project for my public radio show.

I am trying to create a search-able, browse-able archive for the public radio show I work for.

Lots of photos of tombstones. I want to crowdsource the transcription. How?

I have lots and lots of photos of tombstones and I want to get the information into a machine-readable format - ideally a spreadsheet. I think I can find volunteers to transcribe them, but I need a way to do it efficiently. Can anyone suggest a way to do this online, perhaps using some sort of blogging or Wiki-like software?

How to screen thousands of online images to download and catalog hundreds?

A friend wants to find, list, and study Renaissance paintings that depict a certain subject. She can study photo reproductions, but her on-line searches turn up many thousands of potentially relevant jpgs, including many duplicates in various sizes. She would like to get some help -- perhaps crowdsourcing with a micropayment for each image downloaded -- if she can avoid duplicate submissions and also acquire accurate, searchable metadata (artist, title, etc.) linked to each unique submission. Have you got any suggestions for implementing such a collection effort when the collector can't afford to hire a research assistant? [more inside]

What questions do you have about crowdsourcing?

Stanford/MIT Venture Lab (VLAB) is holding a panel discussion at the Stanford Business School on Crowdsourcing -- when companies use the wisdom of crowds to build business value. We're crowdsourcing questions for the event and want to ask for suggestions on what our moderator, Jeff Howe from Wired (who coined the term crowdsourcing) should ask our panel of participants about the topic. What questions would you want to ask a panel of top VCs, company CEOs and journalists involved in the space? What are you most curious about when it comes to crowdsourcing?
