- Dash Address
I noticed that none of your team has any experience in marketing. Is there any reason for this? It seems to me that Dash could use help marketing, getting the word out about its product and services. Not sure how experience in banking would help.Yep - let's hope it works as planned.
Got a good team working on it though See above
I agree with you, @MizzyMax [emoji74]Personally the idea of 6 people swaying the way they want to take Dash is not the way to go. Bias is in all of us let's be honest, there is no organization that is not bias towards some group of people, just like certain news stations are republican favored and some are democratic favored. This creates the faulty system we have now with corruption, down the road it could easily play out as someone has friends in the committee or even bribes the committee to give positive feed back. This could also have the ability to ruin the credibility of a perfectly good proposal because of greed. (Ex. Dash force has new competition putting in a proposal. Dash force bribes the committee and the committee spreads rumors and lies about the legitimacy of the new proposal ending up in the failure of a proposal passing)
We have 4400 masternodes holding almost 200k each, they are highly incentivized to make the right choice to increase their own Dash wealth. I do not see this as a problem it is merely a learning curve. Mistakes happen but masternodes learn from them.
Now if you want to be a group of people who (for free) go around giving feed back on proposals (like the others) Then that would be great, but creating a centralized group of people to help us vote is definitely not in mind.
Being the accounting team for Dash would be a great idea though, as I do see several sources asking for info on where the money is actually going. But in a way it should be part of the teams responsiblity to stay transparent. So not sure.
Literally they could do anything they could blackmail, bribe , threaten to kill. When it comes to hundreds of thousands of dollars people do crazy things. You cannot ignore the facts that it already happens in today's world, how would you think it wouldn't in this example?Bribing 6 MNO's!!? What will it take? Long standing reps - criminal charges - say $50,000 each? $300,000 in bribes? What will the proposal be for: $1.000,000?
Come on Missy - We know you're an abob-the-anonymous fan-boy - you'll have to do better than that!
In private would be safer, but defeat the education/prevention part of the PEC - thought about & discussed before:Hi @Biltong
I suggest positioning PEC more like a "Good Housekeeping Seal of Approval" rather than like a Yelp review (forgive me if these are American references).
Do the evaluations in private with the proposal owners, then leave it up to the proposal owner to decide if they want to share the PEC results. Good proposals will gladly trumpet "PEC approved" and the bad proposals will be noted by their absence of PEC approval.
Hate to say this, but you are right. Uncalled for...
And thanks for proving that you can be extremely bias already. Calling me the "abob-the anonymous fan-boy" and to
All who give constructive criticism and oppose the committee shall receive a bad review and be discredited because the committee want to stay in power.
it's all good we cool but yea I do like you passion to do something for Dash but I just believe it's in the wrong place.Hate to say this, but you are right. Uncalled for
Had a day out of hell yesterday and took it out on you. If you have an hour and a half - I'll tell you about it: Cars/kids/starting a new biz etc etc
Anyway, forgive an old fart - getting grumpier by the day
And don't worry - I don't do evaluations and I don't think any of the team will let me tell them what to say - most have been around far longer than me and none of them are pushovers - believe me.
So they're the people who have the most spare time? I don't get the qualification aspect to this plan...
Well, that IS a lot of work and thought put in, Biltong. [emoji74]Hi TBC,
When I 1st started out i hoped to get 2 volunteers and catered for that: 15 Dash each (couple of months back) for doing +- 10 proposals each.
I was pleasantly surprised when I got 17 volunteers. I gave them all a test proposal to see if they are up to it and a very tight deadline to gauge commitment. 6 Provided their evaluations in time
Again I was very surprised about the quality of the evaluations and most surprised how well the guidelines worked - most of the evaluations were quite close, with a number giving the same marks for different questions.
Now I had a problem: Cut the 6 down to 2! Throw away the wealth of experience of the others?
I approached the whole team and suggested that we share the 30 Dash amongst the whole team, expecting some of them to fall out - None did!
At this stage I felt guilty and added my Dash to the pot
So there we are: a lot of MNO's - a wealth of experience in a lot of fields - way better than I ever hoped for.
Certainly the team is not perfect - lack of advertising expertise is an obvious one, although there's a MBA in marketing on the reserve list. As soon as one of the others fall away we'll bring him in.
IOW: I didn't pick them - they picked themselves
At the moment they are working as small teams of 2 or 3. Each Ev. gives an evaluation and send it to me.
Once all the members of a teams evals are, in I post them - this is to prevent them influencing each other beforehand.
The team then compare/discuss and compile one Report together.
All the other teams watch what they are doing - we've got our own slack - Idea being to learn from each other.
Once all the team members evals are consistently close to each other, we'll know they are ready to go off on their own and the teams will break up and each Evaluator will do his/her own evaluations.
I hope this won't take to long since the team effort is a lot of extra work for them.
BTW - I won't be doing Evals myself - don't have the time.
Hope this gives you a better idea - we are trying to do good
