Dear POAP Community,
It’s been a thrilling ride navigating the last six weeks with all of you.
On January 11th, we introduced the POAP Curation Body: a team being created within POAP inc. to take on the challenge of cultivating our ever-growing community.
Since then, we’ve reviewed approximately 7000 drops, resulting in the minting of approximately 600,000 POAPs, and the addition of approximately 150,000 collector wallets to the POAP ecosystem. We’ve also published policy documents and rules of community engagement; hosted a series of community calls; moved towards a more transparent review process; and put key infrastructure for sustainable growth in place. We’re excited to bring you all more towards the end of March, but today, I’d like to initiate a practice of gathering your input about the processes that are being established.
When we launched Discourse, we intended to address a few specific problems:
- Creating transparency in the review and appeals process
- Establishing a persistent channel of communication with our community
- Stepping towards having a coherent policy, which the community is involved in developing
Having the petition appeal process in Discourse, as unwieldy and confusing as it is to follow, was representative of our commitment to a transparent decision making process (even when this was hard).
All that being said, we’ve made substantial progress on what we wanted to achieve, and are once again contemplating moving the bar forward. Today, I wanted to get your thoughts on what that looks like.
When it comes to petition appeals, what’s really needed is a ticketing system. Curation ops tooling has made substantial progress since early January, which is what’s allowed us to process as many petitions responsibly this month as we have in the last several. With a dedicated team established, the one thing left in the bucket is a substantially more parseable status and issuer-curator communications system.
Product has some things in the pipeline for this, but it likely won’t roll out until the end of March. In the meanwhile, a form would create a much more manageable flow of data, which would likely result in much faster review and response time.
I wanted to open the question up to everyone on the forum: How do you all feel about transitioning to something with a better data flow, and keeping the forum for more interesting issues?
