Except "awareness" is not a business metric.
Yes, we get it, you swear only by the number. I'd be happy to vote for any project with good apparent ROI it if is better than the project you seem to be rejecting. But you know what ? There is not enough proposal describing what you say. If I read this thread correctly, we all AGREE with you that more project with metrics would be good for Dash, just stop repeating it. And, again, crying about it won't change that fact. Why don't you do something about it instead of telling the Masternode to basically do nothing ?
To sum up :
RXDK's logic : we need to stop funding project with no clear metrics because it prevent us (1) from focusing on projects with clear metrics and/or (2) it is dilluting the money.
(1) Prove me how project with no clear metrics does take time, money, energy out of project with metrics. Because it DOES NOT
(2) I made my mind long time ago on that topic : as far as I'm concerned, the money dilution through the budget spending is way insignicant on the final price at the end of the day. But I wouldn't mind that you'd bring a mathematical explanation showing that it is significant if you think I'm wrong.
The other's people of this thread's logic : fund small project will (1) get more people to know about Dash (even if it's 1 more person, it's still 1 more person than before). (2) as long as trust is paramount in our community, a million dollar proposal will probably not pass from a new community member (while it would if it has already received some funds and did what he said he did), so we need small project even with unclear metrics.
That being said, but it's another topic. I will repeat my stance : I am in favor of saving unspent budget every month (I agree it will improve the quality of voting and proposals) but I am against accessing unspent funds from the past.
