DREAMERS LOOKING FOR DREAM GUIDES AKA Why you didn't get a message from a dream guide yet / Why your dream is not approved for granting yet

S Saskia Public Seen by 66

Well that is probably because your dream has no guide currently. ;) Guides are supposed to get in touch with you once they chose your project.
And as for the lack of approval of your dream: Guides are the ones who approve your dream. So without a guide, there is no approval.

Ask here for status of your dream.

Can we somehow streamline approval process?

Hello! I just created a thread on this - but now I see I need to inquire here. I would like to get Granting Enabled for my dream please. Does anyone have time to be my Guide? <3 I'm a well behaved dreamer that keeps ALL receipts and loves LNT :p

Hi guys, we have trouble finding the right person to approve or at least speak to our guide. :) Saskia handed us to Mareike handed us to Joice. We created the dream a week ago and granting is still disbled. What can we do to?

Hi! I put up a couple of dreams about a week ago, but they're still in disabled for granting and there's only a week left for voting, is there anything left I need to do to get them approved?


Toma Susi Mon 22 Apr 2019 5:04AM

The Austrian burners submitted our dream a bit late, it is now online at:

Could some sweet soul guide it to enable granting? Thank you!


Øystein Wed 24 Apr 2019 4:05PM

with only 5 days left to vote, I'm hoping someone can enable my art project?

Hello Everyone!!

Hoping I can find a guide for my communal dream before it's too late!



Saskia Mon 29 Apr 2019 1:24PM

@laurencecuthbertso - looking at your budget right now. we could lower the minimum - also to make successful funding more likely. If you only get minimum funding, wood and material are more important to get and an announcement could be made that people can bring their own oil and Fluor?

Regarding transport: do you put the shipping costs of the wood to the side as ‚transport’?
if something gets ordered as material I think the shipping costs can be put under material. I don’t think other dreamers divide invoices between ‚material‘ and ‚shipping‘. Transport...not entirely sure tho how others do it.

I would recomment pushing consumable costs down a bit tho. I would be super fine with it being around 20% of costs. Given that This is your project and not a project of your camp.

Is there a way to have people who are involved in the project and want to use the oven, chip in for some communal bought consumables? Have you gotten in touch with Freiland about using and restoring the oven yet? Maybe we can figure that out today as well?


Laurence Cuthbertson Mon 29 Apr 2019 6:58PM

Also do I need to fill in the 'Enabling dreams' spreadsheet with the information on this dream? I am happy to =)


Laurence Cuthbertson Mon 29 Apr 2019 9:49AM

Saskia! Let's make it happen!

I have now made the spreadsheet available. As I don't live in Germany the estimates I've made are very rough and I understand that transport costs normally aren't included but I thought that some well seasoned wood being delivered might incur a small cost, but could eventually be shared with any persons needing at the burn. I'm also aware of the controversy of having consumables costed, I also feel that flour, oil and salt are extremely basic things and the making of bread would be entirely communal!

With all this in mind (and the fact that it's very late online) perhaps we should lower the minimum? As if we get permission to use the oven I think we will find a way no matter what.

Thanks again!


Saskia Mon 29 Apr 2019 9:34PM

Ok, you got me. I am checking in one more time and am pretty sure I am going to enable your dream within the next minutes. I am your dream guide now. Feel free to reach out to me whenever your amazing brother can help you out!

I also edited you minimum and maximum in the dream.

Your name kinda gave it away and I am excited to get to meet you and have some tasty garlic bread. :)

Feel free to enter the talk thread in the third column in the 'enabling dreams' spreadsheet once you have created it. :)


Paulus Wed 10 Apr 2019 12:17PM

your dream is approved and open for granting. sincerely your dream guide :)


walto Sun 28 Apr 2019 8:46PM

Can I just say I love your project @laurencecuthbertso ! feel free to reach out to people you trust to follow due process and are in the kiez burn community to help schoulder the work of approving an art grant. You can send them here:

The more people there are involved in co-creating and supporting, the more links are built between people, the more inspiration we can all get from this community :)


Laurence Cuthbertson Mon 29 Apr 2019 6:52PM

Hello Saskia,

Thank you for your interest in my dream and thank you for helping to push it forward!

My brother is Alex (treasurer) he told me about the oven and he will also speak to the owners on site about whether or not we will be able to use the oven. I am not so sure what deadline we have for this but as the dreams deadline is this week I feel it is a better idea to be approved for funding so that if we have access to the oven we can make this dream a reality. He has told me that he won't be able to have a good answer for some time.

I have made changes to the budget, combining the wood and delivery costs into one, I am a little worried it is under-costed, but we will in the end take what we can get within budget. I have also lowered the consumables costs and we can have them as a target. That makes the new minimum 140 euros with a target of 175 euros.

Sharing the responsibility of gathering and preparing ingredients is exactly what I want to do, so once the project is approved we can start to share the information that any camps interested in bringing ingredients to bake should put it into their plans.

Thanks again, I'm going to make a talk page for the Dream as I feel it could be useful to share some of the responsibility.

Yea. More guides.


Saskia Sat 13 Apr 2019 5:57PM

Glad to see your dream is live by now. :)


walto Mon 22 Apr 2019 7:54PM

Hey @tomasusi wonderful!! I personally unfortunately do not have the capacity to guide another dream, so what about pinging a couple of peeps that are involved in Kiez Burn that you might know, to guide your dream?

Here is the how-to

It does include some responsibilities regarding finances etc. as well, so whoever signs up, does commit to these things.


walto Mon 22 Apr 2019 8:20PM

actually, I see that your dream already has a guide:

so you can contact @florian for more info :)


walto Tue 23 Apr 2019 4:00PM

happy to see it solved itself :)


Toma Susi Tue 23 Apr 2019 5:41AM

I tried semi-randomly pinging Kat from the list (as she was one of the few with any comment), but unfortunately don't know others. Will check if my campmates do.


walto Mon 22 Apr 2019 7:53PM

Hey @edwardmccaughan that is too bad! I personally unfortunately do not have the capacity, so what about pinging a couple of peeps that are involved in Kiez Burn to guide your dream?

Saskia Mon 29 Apr 2019 8:43AM

@laurencecuthbertso - I would take on your dream last minute if you enabled access to the spreadsheet to be public.
