I’m not opposed to DAO wind-down proposals. They’re valid, and DAOs having a lifecycle (or responsibly throwing in the towel) are valid things.
I CAN NOT ‘like’ this post in its current form for the following reasons in priority order:
It lacks a specific plan OR accountable parties to carry out the planning phase (if not able to be defined in the proposal itself w/ specifics)
$1m going to where? There’s no proposal for a project and structure for treasury management so this feels like a temperature check on an idea, not a CIP because there’s no address to transfer funds to and I don’t think a CIP should be used to establish a spending limit on some undefined thing w/ undefined fund managers (as a signer have no clue what gets queued in our treasury multi-sig and when)
I love experiments and the quadratic attention thing is interesting…but on a proposal as severe as giving up on the DAO mission and going out w/ a party
If we’re going to wind down I’d personally prefer the simplicity of a direct to token holders pro-rata distribution (like I experienced at SquidDAO) and not a party that has no experienced event managers identified as running it (or a plan and costs associated w/ getting citizens to it)
If this is meta or concept art (or a joke); I’m here for it
– but please for the love of <insert your curse word of choice> don’t like this my fellow citizens and generate the logistical nightmare on the other-side of it that awaits as is currently written.
This getting 20 likes and moving forward in our governance funnel should be considered my official resignation as a signer without need for me to provide further comment than this post. Remaining signers can replace me as they wish in order to move forward in accordance with the OA but contact with me via normal channels may not be guaranteed.
Take the red pill and keep going down the DAObit hole or take the blue pill and wake up in the morning forgetting all about the night before.
If I wanted to keep going with the schtick I would because gosh darn it a $1m party would be freaking epic. The best night of our lives after Big Cypress 2000…
But seriously the real purpose of this proposal is: 1. To really put a bright underline on the fact that we are at a crossroads in this DAO - and highlight some of the issues with governance.
**2. I added the ‘quadratic payments’ to the CIP frankly out of frustration that people are so focused on using process to block instead of build, and to pick apart each other - It was a radical way to try to shift the message, borne from frustration after walking away from our friends arguing to the death over some very, very minor issues. ** 3. Don’t worry, be happy. We love you and don’t want you to go. You have my commitment as sponsor this will NOT go on Snapshot.
