Community forums - Some suggestions

Identification System for Proposals

As more and more proposals are put forward by community members, it will become increasingly harder to keep track of them. A simple identification system might be useful going forward.

For example :


Proposal Tracker

This new Identification system could form the basis of an up-to-date document (perhaps pinned at the top of the Proposals category) that shows the current status of all the proposals put forward. If maintained, it would give the community a clear picture of where things are and in the years to come, it would be an accurate record of everything put forward, whether implemented or not.

For example (feel free to suggest other columns, this is just a general idea) :


Weekly Bulletin

A weekly bulletin would give community members an idea of what has happened in the last week.

The topics that have had the most interaction (say three or four were picked out each week) could be summarised, to give community members an idea of what is being talked about and trending in the community. These bulletins could serve as a weekly record and members who only drop in once a month could read the last few weeks and feel up to date.

This might be better as a monthly bulletin and I am happy to put my writing skills to use if the idea has support.

Community Objectives

This one might take a bit of work but could be worth it in the long run.

Decentralized Autonomous Organizations (DAO’s) are a new concept and this form of Governance through a community forum is still finding its way but if a set of objectives could be agreed upon, this would give a clear direction of what the community is striving to achieve.

For example:

  1. Generating revenue.
  2. Growing the community.
  3. Collaborating with other protocols

These objectives might change over time but having something to aim for might provide some guidance heading forward.
