Hi all, before starting , this proposal is more a “signal post”. Just to have some feedbacks and start a more formal discussion.
GE Name: Reward participation on the forum (source cred)
Time frame : several months + extension
Hypothesis: Will encourage member of the DAO to participate and be more involved
If it works as planned, we should see an increase of members on discord and here. So we will need to be more organised. Until now, most discussions are done on Discord. It’s still ok, as it’s still relatively easy to follow. But if we increase our members by 3 -4 or even more, it will be more complicated.
As a DAO, I think , we also want to reward active users. More and more DAO are doing that, either with grants, with tips … An other way is to use source cred.
“A tool for communities to measure and reward value creation.”
Basically you can set up some parameters and each users will get a score and you can then give rewards based on that score . You will always have some people trying to trick the system , but you can easily spot it. And overall it works quite well.
We already discuss that possibility on discord and several members were interested.
Personally, I really think it can add value to the forum.
Metrics: Number of members on discourse, number of posts , likes, quotes… I never managed a discourse forum, so I don’t know what kind of metrics you have acces to.
Definition of success: A significant increase of members. But overall a increase of the quality of posts. It’s already the case, but more discussion seems to happen on discord.
Resources: Would be nice to use DOUGH for this. It also make a lot of sense to give the gouvernance token when you are involved on a DAO. I honestly don’t know. Maybe 500 DOUGH/month (or even less) to start and see how it works and if people are happy.
We will also need someone to implement it. Easy to say, but I think it’s not very hard (if you know what you are doing ^^)
And maybe someone to manage it. Ask address to new users (for payment) …
To go Further: At this stage I think it’s not a very solid proposal. It’s more to have a first feedback and see what members and “the core team” are thinking about this option .
If you think it’s a nice initiative, and it can bring values, I will need to find someone to help with the technical part.
