The forum has been growing in the number of posts and proposals, particularly in the #pip section.
To facilitate interactions between members please follow the guidelines below.
There are different stages of the discussion to go from a preliminary idea to a PIP which then needs to be voted and implemented.
Stage 1: Discussion / Idea
An idea-discussion is the first step to propose a PIP, during this phase a proposal for a Pie for instance it’s likely to not have a model attached to it, a technical spec nor actual numbers to be implemented.
Ideas are important as they allow members to be creative, it’s important to make sure those ideas progress into actionable PIP in order to be implemented.
Ideas need to be discussed in the appropriate section: #idea
How to recognizes an idea from a PIP?
- There isn’t a model attached to it.
- There aren’t numbers related to the allocation or rebalance.
- There isn’t a detailed explanation of the methodology used.
How to promote my idea to a PIP?
Provide the requirements in the thread you started and then ask @moderators for feedback, they will change the category and give it an appropriate PIP Number.
Stage 2: Pie Improvement Proposal / PIP
A PIP is an actionable step for the DAO to be working on.
In the case of a new Pie it includes a detailed model and the motivation behind the new product, any relevant partnership to launch it, and a timeline to make it happen.
In the case of a rebalance for a Pie, it includes a detailed breakdown of the new allocation and how it compared to the old one, the reasoning behind it and other relevant information to execute on it by devs.
Why is it important to write a correct PIP?
A well-crafted PIP enables devs to take action quickly on the desire of the community, empowers ownership to members as they are following every step of their own proposal, and allow the organization to scale as more contributors can pick up a proposal to work on easily.
Voting poorly constructed PIPs directly on snapshot instead creates confusion, as they only serve as signaling preference but there isn’t really much that can be done.
It’s better to use a poll inside the forum post to gather sentiment instead.
Let’s add token X to DEFI+S
(No model attached, no numbers, no timeline)
Rebalancing proposal with numbers to add token X to DEFI+S
(Model attached, numbers, precise plan)
How to show support for a PIP?
Help to contribute to the relevant analysis needed and to the creation of the models. Create Twitter threads, memes and help the community engage with the PIP you care the most about.
Stage 3: Voting a PIP
Your idea is now mature, it has everything it needs to be implemented and there is a rough consensous to in the post that it is time to submit it to the judgment of the community.
- Go to https://snapshot.page/#/piedao/create
- Create a proposal with your PIP Number
- Set Start and End Date (min: 24h unless emergency)
- Bring the attention of Members to the vote.
