How do you think we should account for the potential of flip-flop voting being used to essentially “filibuster” a proposal, with a Whale moving their votes back and forth, perpetually extending the voting period for a 24-78 hour period.
What VP threshold would you classify as “whale vote” as?
Would this just pertain to a whale vote “flipping” - meaning changing its existing vote - or any whale vote being made?
I would def be interested to discuss this more, maybe before proposing this in a poll, it could become a deeper conversation to really figure out what this would all entail.
I do also have similar questions to @Matimio, there should def be parameters around this. Is this something that can be requested? Or will it be automated? What does this process look like? Is it a grace period to dispute? What happens after? If the rebuttal goes through, then what?
Would love to know what others are thinking.
IMO I’d be interested in a grace period, with a dispute feature. Classify it as whales of say 1 million or more? What I’m not sure about is what to do after the rebuttal phase, does it go to a recount without the whale being able to vote? Or a new clean vote entirely and anyone can vote? What’s the most democratic / decentralized way to work through this. I think we shouldn’t try to limit anyone from voting, but I understand how whales have taken out communities impact, without regard, at times.
So yes somone that has been effected by this twice recently:
1st when @RobL voted No with his 4M VP. Said was going to change to yes if I got 3.5M or more yes VP (which we did later on) but went back on his word last minute and decided to keep it No. and
2nd time when we got above the 4M VP required on our 3rd attempt on the Decentraland Dino’s then @Seanny waited until less then 1 hour to nuke us with his 4M VP and voted No.
Yes, very frustrating lol. I think something like this would kinda of help which is why I am voting yes but in reality this will prob get voted down and even if it does pass wont really change anything since, whatever the whales say goes. Extended rebuttle period or not as the current system stands this is their world and we just in it.
haha wow so my bad, scratch that @dax . I am use to it just seeing the names and just yes or no. i saw the name and assumed it was the wallet, not who someone voted for. i think this is a sign i need to finally get some sleep.
