Should The Foundation or The DAO host a “Welcome to Decentraland” onboarding event?
We have done and continue to do big events with big names meant to bring people into Decentraland. Before the MVMF 2022 the discussion amongst the residents of DCL was about doing what they could do to retain those that came for the event. (It would be nice to see if there are some sort of results somewhere on that but not what this is about.) No matter who funds it this will ultimately require a large number of those currently in DCL to help make this a success.
What do I mean by “Welcome to Decentraland?” This is meant to be an onboarding event on a large scale. When DCL was first constructed The Foundation had to find a way to draw people into DCL. I propose we have an event similar in some ways to what they did (at this time I am not sure what all occurred) and new ideas to make this an exciting event that will have people coming back. I’m imagining Devs and Coders hosting some building classes. Wearable and Emote creators hosting some, wearable and emote classes as well. DJ’s hosting some music classes. Streamers hosting some streaming classes. Gamers hosting Gaming classes. I hope you got the idea now.
Here’s an example:
Building Decentraland - a 5 day course where you will be shown how to construct a (Insert a structure that can be done in that amount of time). Each day a new topic with Q&A showing new and current users how they can create builds within DCL. By the end of the 5 days they will have hopefully created their first building.
The same with the wearables and emotes. DJ’s can show other musicians how to DJ in the metaverse, how to promote themselves and at the end of the 5 days, they perform for us. I would love to see 2 - 1hr courses maybe each day to accommodate different time zones.
We would work closely together and make sure that DCL Brasil and Arabia, Germany, China etc are included and have courses for them. Perhaps language courses as well.
Something like Canessa mentioned in the CBD Space today Dec. 14, a greeting in different languages with arrows and instructions directing them to a location in the Plaza with the events in their language. We’d have a few people in the Plaza to help answer questions.
This would be a workshop of sorts and could also lead to ideas of events for a future convention. There could be prizes for the best new builder or wearable creator etc. If we show them they can build IT, they will come and now because they know how, they will stay.
Did I mention that hopefully people would donate their time to help make this a success for those new to DCL and for ourselves. All would equal land sales, wearable sales, more events. A budget and possibly a committee to put this together would have to be made but with all of us pitching in we can keep the costs down to a minimum. Fun had by all and best of all, We Build a Better World, Together!
I thank you for taking the time to read this and please feel free to ask questions, I don’t have all the answers but maybe someone else will know what I do not. I appreciate all constructive criticism and welcome it.
