I wanted to raise this topic last week already, but I ran out of time, so it got delayed until now. I basically would like to raise the question if we should increase the voting time on our Snapshot proposals, and how the rest of the community felt about this.
I’ve missed a few votes in the last couple of weeks due to increased workloads, and it kind of made me look at the total time these votes are up, and I feel they’re not up long enough, unless you check in daily, which I’m sure is not possible for every DOUGH holder.
My proposal would be to increase the Snapshot voting time to at least 3 days, preferrably 5 days or even longer for votes that carry a bigger impact on the protocol, to give enough time to consider the vote, and to allow for real life to happen too
Alternatively, we could also start queueing up Snapshot Votes before they turn active one or two days in advance, to give some preparation time on when exactly voting needs to happen, so it can be written in the calendar or otherwise noted down.
I often feel they just “pop up” on the Snapshot Page when you least expect them, and as we grow bigger, we should consider that we’re attracting people with all kinds of different life situations, and they should all have an equal chance to participate, even if they don’t check Discord or the Forum daily.
