Moderation

Presently, the implementation of the Code of Ethics has facilitated users in obtaining a comprehensive understanding of its contents. Additionally, users have been granted public access to the moderation logs, enabling them to express their viewpoints.

The primary objective is to continually enhance the effectiveness of the Code as a guiding framework, ensuring that conversations and debates within the community are conducted in a civil, objective, and wholesome manner for all participants involved.

The system of strikes and cool-downs for low and medium tier offenses is also being effectively applied.

  • During the month of September, no major incidents have been reported.
    • Time-outs applied: 2 (for 24 hours)
    • Bans: 4

No significant blockers during this period.

Next steps

GENERAL: Conducting the data processing and analysis using the Community Pulse survey to establish a standard baseline assessment of community perceptions. Subsequently, starting with the development of a follow-up survey, incorporating both the previously asked questions and new ones focused on current community concerns, to create a midline assessment.

The team has also started to establish the necessary infrastructure to initiate the hosting of In-World Town Halls with the assistance of community members, creators, and grantees.

OPS: Will continue to focus on working group facilitation, maintaining the Legislative Tracker, facilitating the 3rd RFI round, and populating and improving the ‚ÄúFacilitation Corner‚ÄĚ workspace with new content. Our attention will be also directed towards establishing the technical specifications for the DAO‚Äôs virtual headquarters, and enabling its progression through the bidding and tendering process.

Additionally, and in coordination with the Foundation and the Governance Squad, will design a pipeline for the progression of platform enhancements, with features and developments to be proposed, supported, and financed by the DAO. As well as continuing to explore and guide discussions towards finding a comprehensive approach to balance participation, incentives and VP distribution.

COMMS: Next month, will prioritize on building out more community engaging events and content. Aiming to host another 2 or more Brick by Brick and continue to feature grantee and community updates/events/WIPs to get the word out about their projects. Main focus will continue to be posting content on twitter and Instagram. I also want to build out and post more education focused threads.
