Effective communication is vital throughout the bounty posting and hunting process. To help with this, we've provided templates that you can use to maintain professionalism and ensure everyone's expectations align. Keep in mind that these templates are starting points and can be adjusted to suit your specific needs.
After accepting a bounty, it's important to reach out to the Poster within 24 hours via email or Discord.

To ensure a smooth and successful Bounty experience, it is important to maintain regular communication with the Bounty Poster. This includes providing updates on progress every few days, as well as addressing any roadblocks, pain points, or questions that may arise.

Keeping them informed will help to mitigate this issue and maintain a positive working relationship.
