Proposal description

Dash town hall is a governance site similar to Dash central or nexus. The site offers Request for proposals, public voting and eventually delegates. We will also be making some efforts to co-ordinate the various discussion platforms (Dash central, forum, Reddit etc...)

The major advantages the site currently offers:
  • Simple Leaderboard -  Proposal overview
  • Request for proposal functionality (Using the draft proposal system)
  • Public vote to express community opinion on both active and draft proposals
  • Vote Delegation Guide
  • Public votes displayed in a way to allow direct comparison with MNO votes
Dash town hall mission:
  • Building a meritocracy where dash users discuss, vote, contribute or simply audit any and all aspects of the Dash treasury system
  • Improving the treasury system where proposal concepts and requests for proposals can be evaluated by the community without financial commitment from either Proposal owners or the treasury
  • Increasing trust and community involvement by making the site multi-lingual 
  • Setting the standard for transparency

Roadmap / Planned features: 
  • Historical records of each proposal cycle
  • Historical MNO vote counts
  • Historical records organized by proposal owner
  • Historical Public vote counts
  • Forum/Discussion platform
  • Vote prioritized comments
  • Tagging system where you could see "top concerns" and "top benefits" that could be created and voted on, and also filter comments by the same tags, items such as "insufficient transparency", or "reputable team",...etc
  • The 'reputable team' and 'insufficient transparency' would probably be a 'sticky' at the top of the discussion right? That way you could see them grouped as in 23 people say they need more transparency…
  • Import comments from other platforms (DC/Reddit/etc)
IF the network approves of this proposal long term (several consecutive budget cycles) we'll start building a mobile application to make governance and voting more convenient/accessible.  This app could have these features:  

  • Notifications of voting deadline, proposal status changes etc.
  • Proposal Status change notifications
  • Masternode monitoring tool including notifications
  • ´╗┐Masternode Status change notifications
  • Delegates Voting History
  • Proposal Owner Accounting / Fund tracking
  • Masternode Best practices 
  • Transparency guide for proposal owners
  • Bounties tied to requests for proposals
  • including mobile voting

Discussion: Should we fund this proposal?

I think one of the main reasons why you are seeing lackluster enthusiasm for an otherwise pretty decent proposal is that the network had a quite sour experience with a project called Dash Nexus that you mentioned - so I'm guessing you know about them.

I personally would love what you are proposing, however I'm worried the project would suffer the same fate as Dash Nexus. Can you tell me why that wouldn't be the case?

Are you one person?/a team? If a team how many people?

Do you have an estimate of a cost and time for a MVP?

Sir, I was familiar with the site, but I'm probably missing the whole back story as to what happened to the team. Feel free to catch me up if you know more.

Not knowing what happened exactly, it's hard to answer what I'd be doing differently. Something that's probably significantly different is that I'm not doing this for money. If we get to the point where we have a team of delegates/admins then I'd gladly step down and hand it all over to them.

I've basically built the MVP using my own funds. If you're not familiar with the site please visit build a profile and cast a couple votes. You can even build a 'Request for Proposal'...something guys in the forums have been wanting for a very long time now. Some of the additional features haven't been fully completed (proposal owner summary/MN list) but the minimum viable features (public vote/draft proposals) should be working.

Thanks for clearing that up! You have my votes and support!

I think DTH is trying to get feedback here, I don't see any ground covered here that wasn't already covered on his Forumk post, but it is his 1 Dash.

Yep, this is not a budget proposal, but a network polling proposal.

The previous proposal was unclear about this (it was lacking a distinct network polling question). This proposal is a bit more clear with regards to the network polling question :

''IF the network approves of this proposal long term (several consecutive budget cycles) we'll start building a mobile application to make governance and voting more convenient/accessible.''

I do think network polling proposals that do not attract a lot of voting participation or a lot of comments is informative by itself.

Yeah absolutely. If the network isn't clearly interested in this project over the long run (6 months to a year)....I don't see any reason to continue it. I can try and clarify this with the next month's proposal. Thanks for highlighting it.
