I want to start a discussion about how we admit new contributors to the DAO and examine ways we could change and improve the process.
Right now, the process is not well-defined but generally speaking contributor tier members are required to own at least 1k PRINTS, and generally have to either apply for admission or be nominated by a member, following which they are voted on my existing members.
I think as we continue to grow, it will be increasingly important to make it easier for prospective members to join, particularly those who want to contribute to the DAO. Lowering the barriers to entry should benefit us in the long-run as it will hopefully attract more people who are willing and able to contribute their skills.
Ideally, in my mind, we’d have a process that’s flexible enough for prospective members to easily join, but robust enough to prune inactive or negative contributors to prevent significant bloat.
I’m hoping to get feedback from everyone to gather ideas and potential best practices we can use - I plan on then synthesizing it into a new process design and proposal.
Some potential ideas could be:
- Removing the application and voting process entirely for 1k members
- Using Coordinape as a filtering tool to identify 1k members who are not contributing to the DAO and revoking their ‘contributor tier’ role.
- Creating a bounty board
Etc - please chime in with any thoughts/opinions/ideas!
