Agree with the comments on “wild west” . Hundreds people running rampant hitting same project developers inboxes over & over again might leave a bad taste in the rest of the defi community.
The tiering concern is legitimate, but every project has priorities and those priorities might dictate something to be nr1 and another to be nr2. No shame in that. No need to call it tiers. This can be framed well enough to be politicly correct.
However also agree with the core idea of @siddharth. the need of transparent & open enviroment for ideas that turns into action. So the ideas would flourish & get into action with much needed pace. Workgroups was a great step towards this, for some reason it is going slower than expected this might be due less participation then expected perhaps. But i believe there are some core principals WG’s can steal from this thinking:
-Bounty: Rewarding good behaviour for working towards the greater good of the project. Which would increase participation as well.
-Hunting: The first come first serve approach hunting analogy brings is great as it creates urgency for organising in an effective way. We need timebound tasks & topics in WG’s.
-Leaderboard: An organised & aligned way to inform people on the progress of ideas being developed & implemented.
Above 3 concepts can be implemented in the workflow of the WG’s in an open & transparent way. Doesnt have to be a Leaderboard, but something that drives public knowledge on what’s progressing is important for eg. Implementation of above principals would lead to WG’s that are organised and communicating continously with the community towards planned touchpoints. To move onwards, creating their events, calls, meetings & group chats to drive consensus & alignment across the board. While keeping this open to public in an organised fashion.
You might say discourse topics are sort of meetings that is open to all, but unfortunately without a planned actions there is no agile sprint, without an orchestrator no music. Leaders should organise the flow of communication with actionable information for everyone involved. Announcements, votes, events, calls, discord voice chats etc. Aavegotchi DAO & Discord almost pumps out a few announcement per day driving public agenda towards ongoing goals with calls to action. I’m sure the community would feel safer seeing an announcement per day for the topics they are interested in. We see people asking for news every day over and over on discord This is mostly because there’s a feeling that everything is paused. This kind of activity would also erase that paused feeling.
Looking forward to the result of this convo & thanks @siddharth for initiating it! And i’ll conclude my thoughts with the same one from PCV diversification. Without clear goals all ideas generated are simply “wishful thinking”. We need to have a roadmap beyond firefighting ASAP to be able to even ideate on what integrations makes sense and in what way. Once there is a clear roadmap, WG’s can start to layer in all needed aspects in a timely and organised fashion.
