Recently there have been a lot of new proposals created on Honey Pot, which, of course, is great since it shows that this community is engaging a lot with the tools that they have at their disposal.
However, I have to say that some of these proposals and the nature of how they have been proposed is, to be frank, sort of stressing me out.
In this thread I would like to discuss how we can create good, concrete proposals as a community, and how we can tell the good ones (from a formal perspective) from the bad ones. Even if the idea of a specific proposal is good, the proposal might suffer from a lack of “actionability”.
I would like to demonstrate some proposals that are currently up that I think need a lot of improvement before we as a community should consider voting yes on them - some of them are almost at the passing threshold and some have no votes on them currently.
Proposal #30: Get Honey listed on Coingecko, Delta, […]
This proposal might be what the community wants (I am indifferent to the proposal myself), but it lacks a lot of actionability. What is going to happen if this proposal passes? Who is going to apply to all of these exchanges?
A proposal that requires some sort of action, be that development or communication with third parties, should, in my opinion, have a forum post or similar that describes why the proposal was made and how the proposer intends to fulfill what the proposal is about if it passes. The “Read more” link of this proposal is simply a Coingecko application form.
Proposal #29: Airdrop for early Honeyswap adopters
This proposal has no “Read more” link, so there are a lot of unanswered questions that makes the proposal extremely unconcrete, even if the idea might be what the community wants (which is my general perception). For example:
- Who is an “early adopter”?
- How much should early adopters get airdropped? Is it proportional to how much they have swapped, how many times they have swapped, on what pairs? etc.
- Who is in charge of developing the airdrop contract and seeding it with the correct information?
It’s not that there are some details missing in the proposal; there are none.
Proposal #24: Incentivized pools?
This proposal is simply a question. There is no link to a forum thread or any other similar place of discussion or an elaboration of what the proposal is about.
Proposal #43: Airdrop 1 HNY for the first 1000 registered on the faucet
This proposal is requesting 1000 HNY with no discussion link and not even a public name or anything of who created it. If this proposal passes, the proposer will get 1000 HNY in their own wallet, and could, if they have mal intent (which I hope not), just run off with it.
Generally, I am very happy that there are a lot of proposals on Honey Pot, but I would like to request that we as a community are better at providing links to places of discussion and concrete action plans.
What ideas do you have for improving the proposal process?
