@championquizzer Thanks.
It was not the proposal , I just mentioned above points.

@raya Hi , From where I can get template to write my proposal.

There is no specific template mentioned here , You can take reference from GSOC official website .

@raya I have a query, I mean you have said that in the forum the designing team will gonna design the wireframes for the website , so can’t I take part in this process , I have designed the Snowflake website in the figma . Please clarify and give some insights so that it will be helpful to write proposal.
Thank You

@Saurabh_Shukla Hey there! No need to rush with wireframes as we’re waiting for the usability research to conclude! Written ideas are welcome :slight_smile:

To GSoC applicants, some general feedback that I’ve shared with others:

  • Our tech stack is fixed, we cannot change it unfortunately. You’ll have to adapt to it!
  • Your main deliverable/responsibility is Web development, not usability research nor user interface design, don’t worry about the latter!
  • Proposing content updates is good however we’re still waiting for the results from our usability research which will inform both the user interface and the content.
  • We’re looking for technical ability to translate UI/wireframes into mobile-responsive code successfully.
  • About adding multimedia content or other features, consider Web privacy standards; we try to avoid adding scripts that could compromise privacy – a good guide to follow with regards to this: https://webprivacy.rocks/
  • Don’t propose a fresh landing page from the start. We’re following a user-centered design process which means that the research results will inform the design of the landing page and content updates.
  • Don’t create any pull requests, it’s not a requirement for project approval.
  • Principally, Snowflake helps users access the Tor network where the Tor network is censored :slight_smile:
  • Take your time to learn more about Tor: Tor Project | History

Good luck with your GSoC proposal!

I’ll admit I’m a bit in the dark about what exactly needs to be submitted for the GSoC proposal but I have been made aware of this guide: Writing a proposal | Google Summer of Code Guides

@raya Sir can you please elobrate second point of it.

Hi @raya, I have made some changes to my proposal and wanted a review if you are free. Should I resend it to you for a review or you will review it from my GSoC application and suggest changes?

Which point? Not sure I understand.

I can quickly review it through DM first :pray:
