Hey Fred, Great work as always. One question… How do we decide who’s voter guide to put at the top?

This really makes it seem like Kyle’s voter guide is the opinion of the DAO. Is that the case?

Hey Joe,

Great input, AFAIK the Voters-guide-thread is the place to go to participate in a broader discussion around the Season 13 budgets and how they relate to each other. I think that taking a step back and looking at the budgets in a wider context is of great benefit for the Stewards as they review and compare the different proposals.

Maybe I should’ve been more clear that it’s mainly the discussion I’m inviting the reader to participate in, as opposed to highlighting the OP as an objective source of truth.

Yes. Maybe there should be an objective voters guide that informs the stewards and community of what is being requested, but not the opinions of one steward.
