Gitcoin Quest ⚒️ Taming the Tentacles

This Quest is not for the faint of heart, no more will shilling, reading, and retweeting cut it 🙅🏾

We need a robust system for capturing the actions of new MetaGame players as they complete quests, move up in the ranks, and earn SEED.

I’ve been putting together a knowledge test that would quiz the players understanding of MetaGame Lore. In order for a player to gain the a role (Player, Bronze, Silver, etc) in discord they will need to submit their responses to the quest.

In an ideal world (my subjective opinion) is that we fork https://gitcoin.co/quests and host our own instance of the UI so MetaGame players can test their knowledge and add their links directly instead of one person having to scan all over Discord looking for “I done did it” posts.

Open for discussion, what do you think, are you already working on this, do you disagree ?

Fight me :boxing_glove:

Soooo I’m not feeling confident with this test. I think this is more of an existential thing than anything…

My favorite thing about MetaGame is that it creates room for innovation and experimentation. It empowers people to dream and create. Multiple choice quizzes do the opposite. Multiple choice tests are where dreams are narrowed down.

That being said, I really like the idea of an onboarding quiz/process. Not sure if this would work, but what if new players had to answer questions about MetaGame, but they were open text answers. Then they submit those questions and answers to a #brianwashing channel for onboarding. Current MetaGame players then review the answers, and if they are satisfactory, give the post a :octopus:. If the post reaches X number of :octopus: a bot will upgrade them to a player and give them access to more channels.

MetaGame players would be incentivized to review and respond to submissions because then they would get XP for the activity. Players would have their minds opened as they enter the Metaverse. Could be a win/win for all parties involved, esp me, since I like to think outside the box with meta-level strategery and multiple choice quizzes don’t let me do that!

@METADREAMER how easy/difficult would it be to build this alongside the SEED claiming workflow?
