Tried to post a question, link to do that seems broken... is the website still being maintained?

I am the developer of soldirac.com.

Thanks for bringing this in, I pushed a major update last night so a few things broke down during hotfixes. I have fixed the bug now thanks to the guy who report it to me on reddit.

I would like to take this thread to explain further about soldirac. It is not a dead project. I work on in during free time. Although the progress has been really slow and I'm always looking for more people to get involved.

to reply to @kilianbuhn - It IS possible to fund your own question. Anyone can add to the bounty of a problem with the "Boost" option. That is also the primary source of income for soldirac because the website automatically takes 10% of a boost amount, this helps fund other questions.

Ads on the other hand have almost zero revenue.

I did try it a few months ago when I saw it on Reddit. But I think it is a failed project.

The guy put a lot of programming effort into it but zero effort in getting it going. It's not a self rolling ball when he hasn't users & advertisers at the same time...

I'll try to get in touch with the developer after i figure out who it is

hey i'm the developer. You can contact me on u/HarambeTownley on reddit or @SatoshiSingh

.org on matrix.

Pretty easy to find him. Just search for soldirac on Reddit (I think it was either the r/Bitcoin or the r/Lightningnetwork sub)

Very cool find, thanks for the tip. We added it to our list of ways to earn BTC - https://thebitcoinmanual.com/apps/earn-btc/

Anyone know how it works? Who funds the answer? How is the answer decided on?

As far as I remember funding comes from ads. You can upload jpg/png and pay for them in sats as advertisements. I think there are none anymore

I'd be willing to pay SATs when asking a question...

Yeah, same. That seems like the obvious model.

Forcing users to pay before posting almost guaranteed in very few people posting questions. That was the first model of Lnsolve in 2020-2021 before I change that and updated it to soldirac.
