Is your feature request related to a problem? Please describe.
The act of submitting a proposal on a public platform can be intimidating for some people. Various reasons, be it fear of backlash or personal comfort, lead to the hesitance of potential contributors. This bottleneck restricts the diversity and quantity of the proposals.
Describe the solution you'd like
Let's offer an anonymous submission option. How this works is simple enough: when a user starts the proposal creation process, it stays the same. The divergence happens after.
For users who don't have accounts and wish not to create one:
Currently, these users get a popup asking them to log in. With this feature, they will get an option: either log in or proceed anonymously. If they choose to go anonymous, the proposal form will indicate that their submission will be anonymous.
For users with accounts but who prefer to publish anonymously:
They'd see the typical proposal form. But, in the last section where they usually get the option to submit as a group, they'd also get an option to submit as an "Anonymous User."
Describe alternatives you've considered
A clear and concise description of any alternative solutions or features you've considered.
Risk of Abuse: Anonymity could be exploited for posting misleading or inappropriate content.
Community Trust: Anonymous proposals might not get the same level of trust from the community.
Data Management: Keeping track of anonymous proposals while maintaining a level of traceability presents a technical and ethical challenge.
Does this issue could impact on users private data?
