Yo I fell into the metagame rabbit hole and boy is it a lovely and deep rabbit hole. I wanted to give my first impression and feedback as recommendations to make it easier for people to get a feel.
This is something I’m real interested in helping with. A self-organizing system is tricky to get onboarded into. It’s hard to explain a complex system with minimal rules. It’s a cool user journey problem.
Overall, I’d recommend using a Join Now flow or something along those lines. A step-by-step guide to make it easier to jump in. The Enter the Game sub section is solid, but tighting the user flow woudl really help.
Biggest hiccup for me was when I first landed on the website, I submitted on this page https://wiki.metagame.wtf/docs/enter-metagame/join-metagame within the first 15 minutes. Then I realized it was somewhat limited so I looped back after learning up. It’s still not clear on the approval process and what happens next.
I’m gonna lay out a sketch of how the flow might work. You can also get a peak at my nacient mental model:
Learn about Metagame
Read the manifesto
Learn up on DAO’s - https://cointelegraph.com/ethereum-for-beginners/what-is-dao
Goals/ vision - https://wiki.metagame.wtf/docs/wtf-is-metagame/narrative-1-a-decentralized-factory
I think parallels for us ignorant of DAOs help a lot. XP/ Seeds are shares and payment for services etc.
Is metagame right for you?
Roles you can play - investor, guild,
What’s expected of you - time, buy seeds, etc. (this is still not 100% clear to me tbh)
I felt a little weird getting asked to buy seeds when they’re a financial instrument I’m ignorant of.
