Wanted to start up some discussion on thoughts by the CoE about choosing one among yourselves to be the CoE facilitator. To me, it does not make sense to have a leader since you all have equal voting power but as we have seen in recent discussions in the rocket chat and in the forums, things have sort of stalled on some proposals that have not been voted on the gnosis wallet(OHwA/DSC, 1729 and open satellite.) I am thinking we need someone to facilitate at least monthly public CoE zoom meetings, take meeting notes, keep a log of the wallet transactions separate from the individual proposal threads for easy reading(maybe this can just be as simple as a rocketchat announcement only channel), and other action items to keep the CoE running smooth. Maybe the monthly meeting can tie into what @objectscience proposed about having a proposal idea contest where the CoE and the public can have an open dialogue of ideas in the live zoom space.
I do understand that for someone to choose this type of position will take some extra work than the other 6 members and I feel like that person should be given some sort of compensation for the work. The problem is that this sort of touches on the touchy subject of if CoE members should be paid/if CoE members can propose their own Ideas and be paid/etc. I think that as long as the CoE does a 4 of 6 vote that if members of CoE are producing quality content or helping facilitate the CoE such as what im suggesting that payment to individual CoE members is OK.
It sort of does not make sense to me that any CoE member should not be paid whatsoever no matter what. If someone from the CoE wanted to help put in the work on a current or future proposal that should be compensated. Work = Compensation.
The no salary thing for just being a CoE member I do agree with! To me its all about work being put out that counts.
Please discuss your thoughts below!
