I have a solution idea that can be solved by Cardano and couldn't find the right category for it. I want to put it in the "challenge setting" challenge.

Do "challenge setting" challenges have limits on what can be proposed?

A "challenge setting" challenge is how the Catalyst community chooses the themes and funding for some of the Catalyst challenges following the next six-week cycle.

They are significantly different than most other challenges.

  • No reward is given to proposers
  • Proposals suggest new challenges
  • They do not contains proposals or solutions
  • Funds requested become the budget of the challenge
  • The outcome takes 3+ months to complete

There is a long lead time on funds proposed in the challenge budget being delivered to the proposals that win in the resulting challenge. If the challenge has a timeliness component (e.g. a "Women" theme to coincide with = International Women's day) it is best to propose it about 90 days in advance.
