Here’s the deal in my eyes as a person outside the CoE elder circle, if that means anything, but someone who has faith this thing will work. This thing is new. New things take time to move and time work out the kinks. This is perfect excuse for one of the CoE to propose being a “facilitator” of sorts moving these things through. Fact is, and please tell me if I’m wrong, @richai wants to make it “rain” NMR and create positive feedback loops. Proposal in, work done, payout, new people in/Numerai project exposure/tighter community. This is Numerai treasury funding and not coming from anyone’s personal wallet. I think we’re still treading water too much still but things are starting to take shape(kashi paper and prediction marketplace and marketplace web address vote) but, a facilitator, someone to call CoE meetings, create dialogs in the proposals, advancing edits to proposals etc is the way to go. Mechanically speaking, the CoE is only the “final” say anyway. They should Not be the ones who should be starting the initial vote unless it’s one of their own proposals, just dialog and suggestions for edits. We should be 1) making proposals 2) awaiting feedback from CoE members and community 3) make final edits 4) the person who made the proposal start a community vote 5) CoE votes on community passed votes to make final say 6) get paid 7)Numerai gets more outside exposure/ community stays tight.
Things would get filtered out that don’t make sense even before hitting the CoE, but, the CoE is that safeguard in case of proposal attacks etc, eg say someone registered 1000 emails to the forums and started a proposal to create Twitter bot to spam crypto community to buy NMR “NMR Moon Soooon!”, started vote and used those 1000 accounts to vote yes, the CoE can still stop it.
There is no way to know but an interesting thought, how many R programmers have stopped by, browsed site and GitHub and said to themselves “not enough info” and took off. Even something like this proposal once shaped and formed correctly can have that positive loop in my eyes.
Look at my proposal for a newsletter. No action really at all but I think once things kick off the ground even more especially if we had a CoE facilitator it could get some feedback for me to edit and start up a vote
Don’t give up!
