Edit: Here’s the Snapshot link
Alright I’ve made a post on Discord about this already and would like to hear some more thoughts. So far the responses have been pretty positive.
We currently have a lot of Signal / Community Proposals on Snapshot and new posts on this forum everyday. So far none of those proposals were able to even get close to the quorum of 20% though. The most popular one by @JG1 about adding additional fees for rarity farming only got around 2 million GHST in votes (~11%) - even though the team decided to take it as a Core Proposal. After being upgraded to a Core Proposal we smashed right through the quorum in less than 24h.
I think there are two pretty obvious reasons for this. On the one hand, our Snapshot is a bit chaotic right now, with some Signal Proposals not following the template at all. On the other hand - and I think this is the more important one - voting on Core Proposal gets you 20 Experience (XP) for your Gotchi.
I propose adding a small Experience drop (10 XP) for people who voted on successful Signal Proposals, meaning ones that reach quorum and get upgraded to Core Proposals. Simply dropping XP for all Community Proposals could result in more low quality suggestions, which shouldn’t be the goal of this proposal. Even if 10 XP might not be much, it gives people incentives to actually look through the Signal Proposals and vote on quality proposals with a higher chance of reaching quorum. As a DAO community involvement is extremely important and I believe this is a small, but decent, step in the right direction.
Let me know your thoughts on this!
- Yes, 10 XP for successful ones
- No, only Core Proposals
- Something else / different amount (add comment)
