We should limit the minting participation to players & patrons only.
Currently, anyone who sets their address in Discord gets activated and appears on the ledger for $SEED minting, defeating the purpose of “earning the player role”.
Mechanics - Abstract:
Limit the set-eth-address channel visibility to player/patron only. This way, only those who truly engage and align can earn the right to get on the ledger. It would reduce attempts at gamifying/farming cred with low quality, inconsistent content/presence/discourse.
Furthermore, it increases the filtering of future octos by aligning them with our approach. We make sure they build for the public good, not for profits. We discourage speculation and reward-seeking behaviour. We seek people looking for personal growth & networking opportunities.
Another problem of the current system is dilution of the seed distribution resulting in many identities receiving extremely small amounts that aren’t worthwhile claiming considering gas prices. All those seeds that came from low effort/quality participation would be spread out to actual active members if they weren’t of the ledger.
Engaged Octo’s will still be earning XP based on their activity and contributions. However, only by earning the player role will they be able to claim their earned $SEED. This would prove their intentions and alignment, reduce ledger clutter and incentivize sticking-around and buidling.
-more seeds for players, less seeds for speculators
-clear distinction between Engaged Octo’s & Players
-filtering increase (only aligned become players)
-makes us more proactive in activating and deactivating people based on activity
-will incentivize consistency/involvement
-it makes that being a part of the “300 of MetaGame” mean something; it is a thing to be proud of, to work for and not something freely handed out to all who show a little interest.
-we might not convert as many Engaged Octo’s to Players
-we might lose activity and interest from current Engaged Octo’s
-some players might disagree with this decision
-takes more productive focus in monitoring people based on activity
-introduces a form of gatekeeping
-It is proposed to gate the address linking from non-players/non-patrons until they graduate
-An announcement should be made to let the community prepare
-It is proposed to go into effect on August 1st, 2021
-It is proposed to have a 1 or 2 week window for existing trial Octo’s before being deactivated
-Those who should be purged anyways are unaffected.
This proposal is an echo of the community and I’m merely the messenger & supporter
What say ye, metafam?
