NON-BINDING COMMUNITY VOTE
Read the FAQ before you vote.
|What am I voting on?||The mission statement Grin should adopt. This will guide the project’s vision strategy.|
|Is the vote binding?||No, the vote is non-binding. Whatever proposal wins the poll will not necessarily be the final adopted proposal.|
|If it’s not binding, what is the purpose?||To gauge community sentiment towards particular proposals, so that more informed decisions can be made.|
|How will the actual decision be made?||The vote results will guide a discussion as part of the Jan 17 governance meeting, where a decision will hopefully also be made.|
|How many votes do I get?||You can cast up to five (5) votes on different proposals.|
|Why more than one vote?||To make it indicative of community sentiment only, and to get a better sense of general direction, rather than a specific proposal, and as mitigation against the Condorcet paradox.|
|Do I have to use all votes||No. By using fewer votes, each vote gets a larger weight.|
|When are the results published?||Once the poll has closed.|
|Why are the results not visible until the poll has closed?||So that previous votes do not influence your vote.|
|When does the poll close?||Jan 16 @ 23:59:59 UTC.|
|Is my vote public?||Yes, once the results are published, members of the community will be able to see what proposal(s) you voted for.|
|Why is it not a secret ballot?||The vote is non-binding in any case and you need to join the governance meeting to argue in favour of your proposal, it makes trolls accountable, and it combats spamming and the use of fake accounts to influence vote outcome.|
|Where were the proposals sourced from?||From this issue, which summarises the original forum thread. The list had to be truncated down to 20 proposals as this is the maximum allowed.|
|How can I vote on a different proposal?||Unfortunately the poll cannot be edited. If you think you have a better suggestion, please comment in the thread below and see who “hearts” it. The vote is non-binding. You can still join the Jan 17 governance meeting and argue for your proposal.|
|Who decided on all this?||The attendees of the last governance meeting. The details were left to me, @lehnberg, to work out as best as I could.|
|I have a different question, what should I do?||Ask it by posting in this thread.|
- The original forum post announcement offers an intro & reference about what this is about.
- The mission statement is not a tagline for the project.
- It needs to be aspirational and something to work towards, rather than something that describes what Grin is right now. So less
"Grin is..."and more
"We're building Grin to be the..."
