Watching proposals over here convinces me that we need a better process (or any process at all) for how things go to proposals on Snapshot. I’m not going to discuss AKITA right now just because I don’t want to get bogged down with it, and will instead pick a different example: Snapshot
The proposal calls a vote on whether or not there should be multiple communities to support multiple languages, at least as I read it. What would this mean if it passed? Would the Gitcoin team be obligated to implement the portal described in the description? Who would need to do the translations?
I suspect there is general confusion over what the DAO can and cannot govern. I know I’m confused about that. I think there should also be some kind of process before proposals go to Snapshot, to review them, make sure they’re clear, make sure what is being voted on is something in the purview of the DAO. I could make a Snapshot proposal voting if pineapple is a legit topping for pizza, but I do not think that pizza toppings are in scope for the DAO, nor can the DAO enforce its decisions on pizza eaters worldwide. I might make that proposal just to make a point.
I think this should optimally turn into a concrete suggestion which is then voted on, something like:
- a nomination for a review team
- a decision on what quorum would be needed to put something in Snapshot
- what a proposal should look like
- what can and can’t be done with a proposal
