    • continue work on hi-fi designs for the Mega-Menu, and work with Blake to build the designs in code [experimental approach]
      • this will also serve as the pilot project for building the MetaGame Design System, but more on that in a few weeks’ time
    • provide foundation for enabling Aligned Autonomy
      • review all design-related docs in Notion, revise where necessary (role description, Design space in Notion, etc.)
      • make a plan for which quests need doing, and when (e.g. what comes before what, a.k.a. dependencies)
  • Help needed
    • we need analytics for https://my.metagame.wtf/ so that we can reliably measure the effects of our work. How can we make this happen, ASAP?

Gnomeski-

  • Past Week
  • This Week
    • Planning how to chop up Lore 2 etc for the Writers Guild. Make first Writers call time. Contact people with Writer Role to Intro and organize that and wider discussion of missing content. Share ideas for projects.
  • Help Needed
    • Just really wanting to mesh further with Penguin about this stuff. Make a strategy for directions in the Guild together is my hope.

Penguin-

  • Last week
    • adjust discord channels
    • edited social pact, naughty step, and Moderation document gnomeski posted.
      • metarrhizal
      • youtube video duty from Bagsy edits
  • This week
    • finished discord channel update
    • bot army workshop
  • Help
    • I miss and need The Lone Ronin. If anyone has contacted him in the last week, or know him irl hit me up please.

Misanth-

  • Past Week
    • pushed the artist guild page, that being the final of the core
    • dming with engaged octos
    • held a cohort with peth
    • was on the metarrhizal raid
  • This Week
    • glossary updates
    • discord channel category description
  • Help Needed
    • not needed

mprime-

Past week & this week: Not much metagaming, traveling and mostly offline

Discussion :

  • Added intros and cleaned up language to make less first person and more general. Penguin shares from prior moderation experience that it’s much easier to speak in generic non-passive terms. Be as specific as possible and avoid using “Try” or “might”

  • DefileZebra asked: What are our goals and how can we best use this time?

    • Consensus was an Open table to expand upon channel submissions.
  • First call for writer’s guild?

    • Bringing a project for the next part of the Lore.
    • What needs doing?
      • Next part of Lore being split out for multiple writers?
      • Possibly Raid for the Glossary?
      • Playbooks?
    • Penguin will work on House of Defi and House of Dapps in the next week
  • Dave needs analytics-

    • Dave is excited to see what we have and go from there to help w/ design
    • Mprime shares that there has been an explosion of non-google analytics and may be worth exploring outside of G
  • Scheduling conflicts last Friday resulted in lack of attendance on Community call.

    • mprime will be unavailable on 5/28
    • Cohorts and Onboarding ran over and resulted in lack of attendance in townhall. Issue was that there was 30 minutes scheduled for each activity that ended up being an hour or more. First few calls went half hour but as groups get larger it gets more challenging to keep on track. Better onboarding may be extended longer in the future. Misanth shared that the last call felt extremely productive
  • Bot Army workshop tomorrow, 5/25

    • 1p pacific tomorrow/8pm UTC

Dave: from the website is to consolidate. We did the mapping of the universe and there are tons of information spread tons of places. Hypothesis is you have to hunt. Typically, what people do is to just ask in discord. Before trying to amaze and delight, let’s try to do some of the basics. All the content creation needs to be surfaced somewhere in one place. Make it easy and make it fun.

Submissions that came in after the call but before notes were published:

Alec-

  • Past Week
    • Switched out Github workflow to merge to develop and a staging / test server before promotion to prod
  • This Week
    • Probably not much, doing a push for a release for my dayjob, then camping over the holiday weekend
  • Help Needed
    • None

Peth-

  • Past week
    • Newsletter, wrote a builder role opening on angellist which got 30+ applications, helped with metarrhizal (just did final review), attended all 9 or whatever official calls trying to be useful & idk, probably forgetting something. But overall tbh don’t think it was a very productive week. I spent way too much time staring at prices, my portfolio, my liquidation prices & stressing the fuck out.
  • This week
    • Writing a new post, looking at the roadmap & stressing. Think we should set up a meet to discuss the roadmap & set out some tasks.
  • Help needed
    • Filtering the “job” applications on AngelList & thoughts on whether we should have a meet about the roadmap. We could dedicate next #:dizzy:-champions-ring but we’re already under 1 month left until Season2 close
    • Also have another thing I’ve been thinking about @Champions Ring…
      • I propose we go back to having everyone report on progress pertaining to the raids & guilds they are assigned to.

Misanth

This Week

  • Clarifications on overlapping issues. Misanth clashing with Fearless and Penguin. Redundancy abound. What is the difference between the onboarding sub-categories, perhaps only needs one champion? Ex: Better Onboarding vs Onboarding specifically. Perhaps a name change for better clarity is necessary.

      • Put that in places where people can read it
    • Quality control in the wiki
      • System for editing it, github to Notion to editing directly?
      • Iron out best case that enables us to edit without encouraging minor edits to be cred farmed
      • Batch pull requests?
        • learning how to do it was very useful to Gnomeski
        • Editing creates too much XP
        • Centralizing PRs to batch them in takes away some motivation to create
  • Kyle

    • Hackathon
      • Next few days on engaging other hack money participants
      • Nearly 60% positive response rate where people are joining either raid guild/ 1 hive/metagame

        • DAO to DAO
        • Have our own hackathon teams
        • Hackathon project took 3rd place as a yield farming strategy!
    • Peth is a meta machine, Kyle knows burnout.
      • Break will also be good, but his long-term concerns are legit
      • We need to focus on
        • creating incentives and possibly some revenue
        • getting serious about sustainability
          • FearlessThompson shared: We are taking it serious but we need security and financial buffer to survive longer term.
    • Look at Olympus DAO
      • how their treasury is performing and we can survive
      • Kyle – that’s a great idea and they have a binding mechanism. And Kyle thinks that may take over from liquidity
        • Offer bonds at a discount and purchasing LP tokens. Makes so much more sense than creating an incentive
      • Fearless- Cloud Cities!
        • There a few critical things for a healthy city that we don’t have yet
        • My Meta
          • Look at Ray Dalio principals in recruitment process
        • In society we measure wealth based on GDP
        • In this new era and new town
          • New way to define and measure
          • It could be pretty simple and we do have the talent to do it
      • Kyle expects DAO to DAO services to be significant long-term.
  • DAO call with Misanth

    • We went through each topic in the Notion board and voted to prioritize what we focus on first via Miro

      • On track to do XP calc this week
      • Hoping to be mint ready in the second week
    • Create and initiatives raid

Champions Ring 19 July 2021

Attendees: Chair, Dave, FearlessThompson, Michiel, mprime, misanth, bagholder Mcfomo III, Defile Zebra

Summary:
• Lots of work on playbooks this last week
• Midweek storming Weds from 17-18 UTC will be used to continue the discussion from DAO call

Round Table Updates:

• DefileZebra
o Updates in the #Guild-and-raid-reports channel were a bit sparse prior to the call today. Props to Misanth for posting prior to the call. Dave later reported that Designers Guild is now meeting bi-weekly, so status report previously shared is the latest. Still interested in any ideas or suggestions on how to ensure that this is a good use of everyone’s time.

• Misanth
o Biggest cohort ever with over 20 participants and will fill up pretty quick. Could redesign onboarding system. 300 engaged ottos? Map out hierarchy of quests. What are we doing and why, what is
o Next week: hoping that we do some follow-up on token and treasure

• Michiel
o Notice that new developers join the Builders meeting but they do not tend to stick around, this is an opportunity and something we should make a concerted effort to resolve.
o Maybe its good to see what is really ht priority or the min viable thing that we need to get cash flow running to offer some services.
o Do we have a map of the whole customer journey and from the user point of view?
o Dan13ram is picking up a lot of work
o

o Fearless
 building my meta and gated features as the priority.

o Misanth
 about the playbooks we need to separate them into categories (guides and tutorials versus what we define as a playbook)

o Bacon
 What is the difference between a guide/tutorial and a playbook?
• means something different to everyone.
 Misanth Elaborates
• Playbooks are short lessons written by those that have found their way through the muck. Best existing example is Coopatroopah’s: “How to make it in crypto without a line of code.” Provides 10 steps. https://wiki.metagame.wtf/docs/playbooks/how-to-make-it-without-technical-skills
• Playbooks and guides should go into notion first. After completed in notion, needs to be reviewed rather than all updates into GitHub.

o Michiel
 Think of Playbooks as how to play part of the game. How do we come up with our playbook topics?
 Barrier to entry is that one must already consider successful in the space.
 Where you get the playbooks? Probably Innkeepers, right?

o Fearless Thompson
 Internal focus and getting our house right can create credibility, versus being perceived as dictating to the wider community.

o Misanth
 Tired of seeing people’s work being discarded because it doesn’t conform to the definition

• Penguin
o XP faire did minting and Alec did calculation and updated merle root.
o Sherpa and necromancer bots.
 Allow the bot to check last message sent, how many sent. Idea is also to track XP at purge versus current (season) to determine fallen or remaining a player.
o Next week document steps taken for the mint.
 Not currently in in the video session is updating the fleek deployment.
• Will be helping and facilitating this week and drive further decentralization
• Prime
o Reminder that if you hear something interesting or uncover someone’s passion please refer them to mprime to see if we have a new rabbit hole topic for the Friday community calls

• Fearless Thompson
o added things to DAO followup in Notion
o Working on mapping out seed ecosystem.
 Lots of supply pressure but not much buy.
o In the guild and raid reports.
o Working on videos. Bogey has been helping out with shillers video.
o Could use help: more videos and help planning them. Haven’t wrote specifics in all areas, but still an opportunity to help get things scripted.
o Penguin on videos: noticed on YouTube.

• Dave
o Usually write or record sports on Tuesday but Designers Guils is meeting biweekly these days.
 Will have another report next week.
o Jumping over the first plan iteration for playbooks.
 Next steps and who will be working on them.
o Opened up path to start sketching wireframes.
 Filters on leaderboard/player list.
 Dan is working on this and they have been collaborating a bit recently
 Think they have a solution for timezones. Demo is already available.
 Fixing sorting and adding seasonal XP (will be default).
 Planted idea to someday replace spinner because chakra UI has a readymade component for this.
 Worked on top 3 skills on profile setup.
o No desk or big screen and won’t for a while, so limited to mobile.

• Chair
o Goal to build out more scripting videos, but didn’t get much done last week.
 Plans today to figure out what tasks should be and get caught up.
o There is a builder issue that needs more scaffolding.
o Will focus on video and video playbooks.
 Looking at fearless’ doc.
 Apologies for lack of productivity but will catch up in group chat

• Bagholder McFomo III
o Less sorry than chair about having little to report
o Looking for someone to take over shillers guild for summer.
o Had a few thinks come up
 Spouse has a new job and will be full time training next week
 Bagholder will be watching the children and will be unable to commit to specific times.
 Will have a somewhat sporadic schedule that will make it tough to commit to static meeting times

• Bacon
o Also has not much to report
o Focus on the wiki now.
 Getting 2 new houses up to date and reviewing new submissions.
 Better landing page?
 Lots of wiki stuff.
o Org knowledge
 Raid map- dynamic updating map?
 For the OrgKnowledge stuff will start in the wiki for now but would like to get into mymeta eventually
o Bacon has some Figma challenges, but not to worry Chair will sync up and try to help
o We really need some tutorial on primary tools- GitHub, figma, miro or notion.
 That might fall under videos?
 Every playbook should have text and a video.
 Figure out how to get link between wiki and videos.
 Incorporate that into wiki, at least with a link to the YouTube page.

• Open discussion
o Tokenomics and Treasury topics from the DAO call
 prioritizing actions and raids.
 Need to followup on prior DAO call, will use Weds midweek storming 5-6p UTC on weds.
o Olympus DAO their ecosystem and bonding systems?
o Staking tokens and depending on lock length get ecosystem token at a discount. Answers exist just need to replicate them in this space.
o Bacon suggests that we need utility or something to sell
 Merch and patron rewards?

  • Necromancer bot in-progress
  • Bogie joins the Champions Ring as Video Overlord

Discussion:

  • Misanth
    • Warned DefileZebra changes coming to Notion meeting notes to help with support filtering organization
    • Last week
      • Cohorts 10-15 minutes late, then 45 minutes of gathering and then to townhall
        • Hard to do all the things without a clear ruleset, enforceability
          • Really good thing that we have cohorts, but use them as a time to troubleshoot and help people having issues connecting
          • Activate at the moment of engagement defeats the purpose of separating curios from engaged Octos
          • Refine that flow: how do we reward newcomers?
          • A waste to try and push every single person
          • We should really discuss, maybe next week?
      • Penguin: thinks it’s important that we gate signup a bit more. Also provide rolling addition to patron requirement. Increase patron requirement by 5 pseeds each season?
        • Common thing in these requirements: Every month requirements increase
        • Bacon: Use patron ranks more. Increase base patron level slightly. Base patron= roughly engaged octo level
        • Michiel suggested that we borrow from the idea of twitch subscriptions?
  • Penguin
    • Working on wrapping everything up and heading out on vacation with the family

      • Penguin will throw in the hat for NTFA?
        • Maybe next Friday since we have something coordinated for this upcoming Friday
  • Michiel
    • Mega menu almost there
    • Filters working
    • Forum Dave posted about search option to create a global search and we only have search for players.
      • Would need some decisions made and some prioritization.
      • That change would need further discussion, but uncertain about what is best as far as prioritization.
      • Computational wise, this change would be a bit expensive.
      • Implementation would need to figure out whether its worth spending time on now.
      • Interesting discussion with FearlessThompson about Metagame being a “Cloud city”
    • Dove into SourceCred after session with penguin
    • One thing with source cred, sometimes for 3 days in a row isn’t updating and cannot figure out why that is. Need someone to help with that.
      • Ongoing/repeating issues in the past- Why does this constantly need to be fixed? Sync up with Alec to better understand the most recent patch
    • Penguin: how is the deployment done?
      • Is there a timer that runs the job? For SC there is a daily timer that runs some github actions, SourceCred goes out and accumulates data and then stores graphs.
      • Go to the repo and click actions and see the output.
      • Interesting note that this runs locally just fine?

    • No access to miro stuff…anyone have access to grant access?
      • crickets
    • As for DefileZebra’s solicitation of how we might use this time more effectively- Lets focus this time on tokenomics rather than focus on weekly updates

S3W7 Champions Ring 02 August 2021

Attendees: Misanth, B0gie, Peth, Michiel, Bacon, mprime & FearlessThompson.

Peth

Got back from the Holiday with a not so bad message - reiterated with MetaGame is not well post.

Need the deliverables put into the context, the media needs to be created, to get people humming from the same perspective. Biggest problem is now the competition is intensifying on social media within DAOs.

Spread the message a bit more to help with recruitment.

Met a lot of connections. To do the raise in good conscious he needs more of myMeta created.

B0gie

Asks for a LinkedIn.

Peth

Job boards & Freelancers in localised areas closer to Europe, Profiles & Playbooks. 3 More Playbooks - 1) Onboarding to the DAOspace 2) How to contribute as a non-technical person 3) ???

Need Help - more Developers, StoryBrand & General Roadmap.

Misanth

Another Cohort completed, adjust our accepting of new people could change slightly.

Initially they are happy but after a week or so certain types of people are catered to MetaGame. Offer these Cohorts as a way to get your hand held a little bit… get to know each other & leave them to either become a player or not!!! Due to the MintGate

Shows his overhaul Figma

  1. Explicit emoji use warning
  2. Explaining the participation & rewards with links
  3. Introduce here & check pinned messages here & here

See. Figma for other ideas…

Including the ability to see the Feedback Loops as a Curious Octo. Without Octos only giving a min. Amount of effort until they become a Player.

Adjust Weights + Functional Emojis. Expanding the high effort emoji to the guild crest.

Editing of the MintGate for Engaged Octo’s becoming Players. In the game registered but inactive in SourceCred. Role Assignment & activation after graduation.

B0gie

Working on the MetaGame Explained video, all the scenes are being created & animated atm.Finding audio to go with the graphics & utilise MetaBob for our video.

Open the floor, to engage players on Video Content.

Shows us the Wearable NFTs being created & the Discord Bot for creating NFTS. xDAI NFTs Bridged to ETH with ease.

Michiel

Building is going a lil slow, they have Tom who is new. It’s not the most used Stack but they need to learn the stack to get to that place. Probably one of the things creating peoples hesitation. You only earn when you contribute & learning isn’t paid for.

Working with Dsybulic & the amount of errors & the time taken to fix it. That’s reducing the flow, there’s more work to do regarding that.

Spent time collating what MG is, that explains it in a OnePager. To be shared later on regarding what MG is. Explaining the Jargon in Laymans Terms instead of the Jargon.

Again reducing coordination cost via content. Michiel spent time on Sourcred & there is some useful information. The fixing of the channels is needed so is happy for that & looking to make a proposal on new channel weights.

Explains how to implement the MintGate. Connecting with Sparrow & Aragon regarding SourceCred. Likes the idea of utilising Video for now instead of Playbooks, make that priority instead. Utilising Twitch as a platform for streaming on - wen access for Twitch?

We need to Lower the noise, & focus on the small group of people who are ready to engage. Meeting requirements for New Players.

B0gie

MetaGame Streaming - Should we make a Twitch Channel.

Michiel

Videos & MyMeta should be the focus. Shows us his Functional Map of the MetaGame.

Bacon

Talked to pETH got perms on the Notion, Added Admin field for each page. Add Admin access for contacting the relevant person to get access to stuffs!

Notion is a pain in the ass for the cost but we utilise the guest access & looking for alternatives to Notion very soon - Add & Manage Content. Maybe Obsidian maybe Airtable?

Notion Perms have been added & also the Github. Talked to the Reflexer Team w/ Fearless adding RAI to our pool one of the best stablecoins unpegged to the US dollar & backed by ETH. Has been pretty resolute for our Cloud Community & incentivising our pool of ungovernance pool token called FLX.

It’s exciting because they like our platform & it will bring more stability to our pool away from the $USD, buying into the pool to earn the farming rewards. pSEED conversation.

Need to connect up with Jeremy Balancer for RAI. (Which has been done).

FearlessThompson Explains

  • Treasury Proposal: https://forum.metagame.wtf/t/treasury-proposal-building-the-metagame-circular-economy/735/2
  • Arranged to AMAs with Babylon Finance & Reflexer Finance
  • Recorded Upskill sections for Guild Innkeeper videos & wrote the Video Descriptions also
  • Had a talk with the might @mZ regarding tokenomics on Sunday & recorded video that’ll be coming out soon & should help us guide our tokenomic decisions
  • Helped fill out the Video Content Threads with Useful Links (I think we should thread the whole Discord)

      • Michiel suggests that the easiest solution is to remove auto-activation and make #set-eth-address channel visible
      • Penguin- effort may be on innkeeper and guild to activate player- now will need to bug people to get activated. Is that Ok?

S3W10 Champions Ring Call

Attendees: Michiel, Misanth, Gnomeski, peth, b0gie, Fearless Thompson, Bacon, penguin, Dave
Quick-ish Summary:
Much general discussion about value management was a theme. This ranged around XP Fairy development for monitoring fair value at MG esp in did-a-thing. Balancer V2 and other possibilities were discussed and a way forward sought for beginning an actionable flow in this regard.
Multisig permissions vote agreed to be made and more decentralised ownership of minting keys to software accounts and SEED account ownership to be transferred from Metadreamer to MG sigs.
Otherwise a general catch up with Champs looking at where help is needed. Updates on Mint process.
Agenda:

• b0gie
      Anchorman me and  wonfiddy loving Neos links into OBS and is free, VR studio, VR chat. Make virtual newsroom. Metanews.
      https://store.steampowered.com/app/740250/Neos_VR/
• Peth
    ◦ Shilling newsletter. Roles and raids. Roadmap timeline. Misanth and Bacon will help with that. 
    ◦ Raidguild coming in for Mymeta  Michiel will be there with peth to help greet/guide  them. 
• Misanth
    ◦ Smaller cohort only 2 peeps, both quite passionate 1 seems very confronting!  Could use a builder onboarder on the cohorts to explain tech stuff. Fearless -Youtube onboard vid, shorter codebase be useful? Maybe start at builders align 20 mins earlier for new people. Michiel agrees to this maybe half hr earlier. Add to Calendar​? Dual host for Friday as well? May break up flow with tech jargon etc penguin can come in before community calls Michiel will also give it a go. 
• penguin
      
    ◦ Mint stuff merkle root is done and seeds sent, Merkle root transaction failed for some reason maybe gas?? SEEDS were minted and waiting for update, send seeds to the UI. Lux made metafam fleek acc for hosting, now hammad needs to point the dns there still. Be done soon. New few days. Vote up for MCON about sponsoring them vote is for that, so they will get paid. Add Michiel and lux to multisig? Looking to move away from Aragon longer term cos of costs. Add a vote in voting channel to make transparent. Multisig is main thing for speed and efficiency.
    ◦ NTFA launch with lots of freebies at the NTFA discord server.

• michiel
       Good no further help needed.
• Fearless Thompson
      
    ◦ Help wanted for vids and internal comms in general, more vid help. Creating twitter schedule for headhunting. Anna is helping for twitter schedule. Retention is super important.
• Dave
      
    ◦  No help needed, slow week at home working, 
• Bacon 
      
    ◦ SEED pool is currently owned by MD directly atm. Make new pool on Balancer V2 maybe for extra benefits still possible. Roadmapping is a collab thing do that is helped already. Discussion went into extra time, further discussed below.

Discussion:
• Did a thing being misused, poor focus and noisy posts. Evergreen quests do include IRL general improvements such as cleaning up a beach or whatever though.
• XP Fairies maybe go through list once a week together? So then no individual is a villain. Also discussion about initiatives and XP Fairies should understand this better, seems hard to see how these work these days. Michiel is into spending an hr a week on this with penguin. Time is made weds at 4 am EST.
Discussion about future of the pool. Have to develop it but fears around effects on the pool, price, split pools, maybe we should jump straight to DAOHaus, in which case we should not make 2 jumps.

Maybe we can add RAI to phase 2 so that us delaying with Reflexer is more palatable/ understandable. Then we make changes all at once.
Bacon saying this was originally to stabilise things rn but, cos we have a bull run now it makes it look like we are stronger again, but another bear run and SEED will plummet so we need stability asap.

It has also been voted for so we should do it for that reason? Maybe we can do a more detailed explanation of pros and cons before a final vote or at least in an exploratory way.

Metadreamer needs consulting on a number of aspects of this and to transfer ownership of access to a decentralised multisig form. Is acting as resident expert.

A doc to be created about all pros and cons of each pool change idea. For full transparency and better understanding.

Balancer V2 does want to happen and is a great opportunity to add RAI.

Checklist of what needs to happen as a workflow for this process will be developed further by Bacon and Fearless. Discussion, call for multisig members also is agreed is wanted to get this going more.

S3W11 Champions Ring 30 August 2021

Attendees : defileZebra, Michiel, Misanth, penguin, chair, Rankko, AnnaKaic, Bacon, Bagholder Mcfomo III, Tommy

Summary:

  • We need to get Penguin reimbursed for sponsorship cost paid on Metagame’s behalf for Mcon
  • We welcome a few new Octos to the Champions Guild, AnnaKaic and Rankko.eth!
  • Remaining open question: what about that Balancer migration proposal?

Agenda :

  • Ideally, this agenda would be built on the “help needed” portion of the Guild-n-raid updates channel.

Discussion:

  • Penguin would like to be on record as not being a fan of this time
  • Penguin to get on the bill for Mcon Penguin put out the $5k
  • Multi-sig is 3 of 6
    • Metadreamer objected to doing 3 of 7 signers due to concerns over security (being less than 50%?) so we remain at 3 of 6.
  • In lieu of items noted as needing help from guild and raid reports, we will go round table to each champion starting from the top
  • Chair
    • Still needs some help working out how to distribute cred equitably amongst writers of future playbooks
    • Held meeting thurs and last sat, at this point it looks something like:
      • Focus on getting writers up to speed with using github
        • onboarding a single non-technical player is estimated to take at least an hour
      • PRs will then be picked by playbook builder for a single batch commit per week
        • Dev submits the PR and writers get cred within the PR by being tagged
        • What this still doesn’t account for is 1 page versus 5-10 page playbook
    • Michiel shared that Luxumbra had reached out reference to this-
      • Michiel believes that the easiest way is let writers make the playbook in markdown and builder can submit the PR
      • However, XP would be divided equally (50% per player for 2, 33% per player for 3, etc.)
        • Similar challenge to development PRs in that not all efforts within the PR may be equal
        • For example, if someone did 80% of lifting but tags a single contributor, they would then split all XP rewarded in half
      • What about just putting playbooks into did-a-thing?
        • Chair likes that suggestion
      • Can easily export into markdown, so don’t even need actually know how to use markdown
  • Welcome 2 new champions that jumped in just after started: AnnaKaic and Rankko.eth
    • Hi! Nice to have you
  • Michiel
    • Supporting new builders with Builder’s guild meeting 30 minutes earlier
      • This was mentioned in the newsletter: will start a half hour earlier for new builders.
    • Then at normal starting time will plan to go over issues
    • Will aim to give new builders give them small easy tasks to work on.
      • Maybe split some bigger items up amongst multiple people
  • Penguin
    • After mint, a few players had json issues. Spent some time troubleshooting and confirms that cache had been cleared and tests failed on multiple browsers within the same machine.
      • Limited number of complaints but will circle back this week
      • Michiel suggests that we take a look at the latest commit of erc20 redeemable and see if there are any sus changes outlined there
    • Minting numbers were different than what Metadreamer was expecting.
      • Numbers were a little off, like 1-2%
    • Michiel wants to re-run the whole process and review it
      • Old calcs thrown out and MetaDreamer’s numbers matched the seed totals, and were used for the mint
    • MCon sponsorship in 2 weeks with MetaCartel in Denver.
      • Will be working the event for Divine Pixel Society (spelling?).
      • Personally paid for MetaGame sponsorship out of pocket after vote passed because of time constraint.
        • Transaction was done within a loan via CREAM so currently paying APR on the loaned funds
        • Getting reimbursed- Since Eth is in the Aragon DAO will likely cost $200 to reimburse from there
        • Other option suggested was that Peth has some Metagame eth in his wallet.
          • Maybe he can it from that part for less gas expense?
          • Penguin will reach out to Peth
    • XP fairy meeting last week and will have another tomorrow at Midnight, PST
      • Anyone can join the XP fairy meeting.
    • Critical note on funds put into claim contract accidentally:
      • If enacting a vote for minting, seeds must go to the multi-sig.
      • Seed should not be sent to claim contract directly
  • Misanth
    • The biggest problem as Misanth sees it today is defining what kind of people we ant as players versus patrons.
      • Similar to personas like FearlessThompson was working on
      • Need to clarify exactly what kind of people we want here, otherwise its mixed signals
      • Not like skillset but in terms of motivations.
      • What kind of players or patrons do we want?
        • Once defined we can more effectively incent
      • Rankko- Need to keep a balance
        • Wants to propose mandatory introduction for curios octos. Would like to put them on the spot and have folks explain how they found metagame.
        • Penguin- to be engaging as an engaged octo, one can’t just be consuming but actively contributing
      • Michiel- can we make an introduction template?
        • yes
      • Internal guildkeepers should meet up prior to mint to review engagement
      • Penguin- doing something is our measure.
        • Should be able to demonstrate something in their field.
  • Rankko
    • Will be an Innkeeper deputy and Tommy will be champion
    • Need to sort out incentives for innkeeping
      • Hard to track effort and measure results
      • Will be discussed in detail on Wednesday Innkeepers align 330p UTC.
    • Decide some amount of XP and active innkeepers make a list
      • DefileZebra: sounds like this might be a good example where an initiative is needed to award XP
      • Misanth: new UI for initiatives is coming, but would initiatives be a good place to recognize the effort
    • At the beginning or end of the meeting go round robin and give props similar to a few other DAOs?
    • Michiel shared that they are not a big fan of props
    • Penguin- We should be trying to show how the system works rather than creating a separate work flow
    • Rankko would like to propose a new role for use within the innkeeper’s guild: “librarian”
      • Under that role you will understand metagame and wiki and be able to guide people on contributing content.
      • Make this one step before innkeeper
    • Re-approach each guild as every guild has an innkeeper.
      • Should be aligned so can communicate in a more detailed fashion
        • have a follow-up and clear path
        • Innkeepers now need to know how that octo is progressing and be able to follow-up on activity
      • Anna- Likes the idea of doing a follow-up to get feedback to see understand and continue improving onboarding efforts
      • Presentation for new octos from Misanth
        • Misanth shared that there is a structure, just no presentation
        • DAOist preso might be usable for onboarding?
        • Anna will send to Misanth
  • Bacon
    • Been engaged on other things recently but planning to double down
    • Wanted to check in on where we are with balancer pool migration but without Peth or MetaDreamer present it seems like we don’t have the right audience.
      • Anyone have any updates to share on this item?
        • Crickets
  • Anna
    • Attending as a deputy of Shiller’s guild
    • Here to help promote the things on twitter!
    • Had Shiller’s guild meeting last week and decided we should diversify social media
      • Structure for outer communications versus internal
      • Gather analytics to see reaction to our message
    • Currently attending Crypto Commons Gathering in Austria and will be doing a workshop on MetaGame and writing playbooks
  • DefileZebra
    • Will be available for this new meeting time going forward
    • However, will be travelling in late September and will likely reach out in the next week with dates that I will be looking for help covering with meeting notes/facilitation of this meeting
