Interesting! Yes I think it will work. But to show the number of active 
communities in the vote-space is additional to the other 4 maps, right?

Well, its both actually: money and agreement about the conditions of the 
prize. Which makes it even more interesting. You can have as many plans 
to do something as you have voters and for each plan you can see, if it 
has enough resources to be actually executed. Once this point is 
reached, no additional voters are needed.

But here too: the content of the drafts plus the votes plus the number 
of communities ... all together, right? Or do you picture it as seperate?
