Hey, I love these news updates and think they're super valuable! 😁
Would also like to let everyone reading the comments interested in the Haveyoubeenhere, Pinmapple and Buymeberries dapp dev proposal know that you can follow the progress on the proposal from this account (@martibis). I am planning on doing bi-weekly updates (the first one was posted a few days ago).

Do let me know of any updates for your projects that might go in the News.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Will do! Also not related to my projects, but this one might be of interest for you:

Thanks - got that one in yesterday.

That is definitely some exciting stuff that is happening right now. It is easy to forget all of the development that is happening all around you when you spend the majority of your time in one or two front-ends. I know there are some really great proposals in the works, so I hope they are pushed through. That Friday Bot sounds awesome.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Let me know if you spot anything new that I have missed for the news.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Will do!

Thanks for the mentioning...
I hope more people will take a look at my proposal and support me eventually if they check on my work and decide, if is worth it ;)
You can find the proposal here:

@tipu curate

Good luck with the proposal.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Great to see so much development activity going on!

Let me know of any updates or news for Rising Star.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Worth noting that the HBD stabilizer proposals return all of their funding (and potentially additional profit) back to the DAO, either refunding it as received (when HBD doesn't need stabilizing) or after exchanging it.

Thanks for the extra info.
