I’m proposing a very simple process to improve the visibility & trust of the Co-op Campaigns. This is an invitation to every proposal to participate in this experiment by creating a forum post right now.
Each potential or successful Co-op Campaign will create a Thread in the SEEDS Ecosystem > Proposals category of this forum space and will update the progress of their Campaign with a comment ideally at least once a month or more often. Documenting what they’re doing, what are their current challenges etc. That will show the history and the progress of the campaign and will improve visibility and trust in the whole process.
I see this process expanding at three parallel levels:
- Every successful campaign could create a forum post right now and start documenting their contribution as a way to participate in this experiment.
- Every potential proposal could start a forum post before putting their proposal up for voting - at the moment when they’re ready to engage with the SEEDS community - in order to get feedback from the community and improve.
- A better official process could be created by the Working Group that’s being led by @Matteo and @DaYa - for example, one that includes failed proposals and/or is required or semi-required to go through for putting up a proposal etc.
I see the processes of 1 and 2 running parallel to 3 and serving as an experiment and a proof of concept of seeing the potential benefits and downsides of having this process here in the forum.
I will not create a separate category for this yet - we can see how many proposals will start doing this and if they are enough - I’ll create the separate category and move all of them in there. You can read and post about all the current proposals in the Proposals Category
Thoughts? Suggestions? Downsides?
