The Conclave approaches the end of another term. During the latest meeting, there was a discussion about how well the Representative system works under current circumstances.
Given the size of the community and frequency of proposals, is it worth considering changing some aspects of how this project’s governance works? Here are some thought starters addressing things, as this is normally when we would vote in new members…
The Conclave Representatives :
There is a weekly obligation to meet for a relatively small amount of business to address.
Meetings could instead be scheduled a different rate, or set amount of time after a proposal has been introduced for review.
With a small pool of candidates each election, the community could extend the length of a term and/or move the functions of a Representative to a volunteer basis (which means Conclave is open for anyone who wants to volunteer, kind of like Jury Duty)
The rotation of signers for the treasury transactions could be adjusted or detached from the other duties.
The Conclave Bell :
The Concord Representatives will be due to distribute six of this Token of Concord again, awarded to players whose “participation, activity, or efforts has positively impacted the WAGDIE project.”
Changing the dynamics of the Conclave Representative would impact these tokens.
- They could be distributed at a different rate to reflect the slow growth of the fairly small player base
- We could temporarily halt disbursing them until we switch back to a 6 member 6 week term process?
- Maybe another group, WAG (WAGDIE Artist Guild) or some other members could take up the mantle of disbursing every X period to keep up tradition
