I will be voting no then, if this indeed emerges next month as a decision proposal. Interestingly, the price of Dash is now pretty similar to when Technologov created his decision proposal in 2017 to reduce the Dash proposal fee to 1 dash (which as we all know did not pass) : https://www.dashcentral.org/p/REDUCE_PROPOSAL_FEES_TO_1_DASH
Back then 1 Dash = $174
Now 1 Dash = $171
Even with the 5 Dash proposal fee, we already got spam proposals from disgruntled proposal owners like this one :

I don't even want to contemplate how many spam proposals with an extremely long end date will pop-up and linger in our budget system, once we lower the Dash proposal fee to just 1 dash. Not to mention the number of low quality budget proposals and low quality decision proposals that could emerge with just 1 dash as proposal fee. At least with the 5 Dash proposal fee in place, people need to do some effort to gather feedback from the Dash community, before creating a decision proposal or budget proposal (this thread forms a good example of that).
Ryan Taylor (CEO of DCG) already said he wants to postpone the proposal fee discussion untill at least Dash Platform and DashPay are launched on Dash Mainnet.
Bob Carroll (CTO of DCG) already mentioned in his latest interview, that he thinks the 5 dash proposal fee works fine and he sees no need to change it.
The outcome of GrandMasterDash decision proposal (https://www.dashcentral.org/p/set-your-price-proposals
) already shows a heavy resistance to adjusting the 5 dash proposal fee.
Yet here we have another attempt to push-through a 1 dash proposal fee, that i don't think has proven so far to have considerable support among masternode operators. Also i think there needs to be more thought into seperating decision proposals from budget proposals. Now any change in proposal fee affects them both.
Instead of putting so much energy in trying to reduce the proposal fee that could introduce risks to our budget system, why not take a que from the Dash Incubator budget proposal or from the Dash Boost budget proposal and come up with a budget proposal that focus on allocating smaller funding requests in a secure, trustless and safe way. Put some kind of rating system on it, so people can request higher internal funding amounts from that particular budget once their rating get higher. I would be willing to support such a budget proposal (depending on the specifics).
