Payback Pot to power Ideas in the lab

By: as7861 | 16-11-2013 14:21


I was thinking about a idea that may change what 'run by us' means. 

Looking at the member experiance outage compensation had played a vital role in getting projects a head start. So i thought maybe every payback period, their can be a pot set up from us (the community) to contribute some payback towards the pot and the most popular ideas that are in the lab, get. a second vote of prority (like that was done recently) and those people that contribute get exclusives on whats happening. 

I know your thinking giffgaff should do this anyway. But think maybe if we can get this pot to be successful how much difference would it make on pricings of various. 

Even a pound or 1p can go along way. to helping ideas come out of the shell. 

Its a far fetched idea but i might as put it out their. (i know their might be similar ideas out their)

All feedback is welcomed :smileyhappy:

I think we should give credit solely to the idea maker, and update exclusive to anybody involved... I was just about to make an idea saying 'payback to idea makers, 1p a vote'  which I may yet still do after seeing the date on this Lab event. This would drive people to give their opinions and improve the company at an accelerated rate.

@alexirving I believe 10% of income should be donated, this is been proven to be the most healthy way of donating money constantly and for setting examples (not saying more is better)

As generally most sensible suggestions ( excluding the Giffgaff should build a moon base type) would benefit Giffgaff by improving their services, keeping up with or ahead of the competition (if ideas are both recognised by members and voted for and acted on by Giffgaff in a timely manner) this would soon recover any of the modest expenses incurred by the implementation. That is why I don't think payback should be required for Giffgaff to implement suggestions they get for free that by and large will serve to increase their market share and/or profitability. They should do like advertised and get on with using the labs system and implementing or ditching suggestions but with a bit more explanation than just saying"not for us" for the latter.

I don't think a donation makes a bad idea work.
