Friendly reminder to Masternodes: All your votes from last month are cancelled, null and void. Unlike previous months where successful proposals can kind of coast because all their YES vote carry over, this month, THEY DON'T. Please go vote so that we don't leave deserving proposals high and dry. If you are having problems voting, this thread will likely solve your problem, otherwise ask.

The clock is ticking.....17 hours. Let's get after it!

I decided to vote for the competing PR firm, which means a no vote from me on this proposal.

What happens if both proposals were to pass? Would it be better to have two PR firms??

Wachsman seems to support DCG very well and I'm sure they do a lot of good work behind the scenes that is difficult to see.

Shift is exciting with a new perspective and experience. Their actual proposal doc is very detailed and looks interesting.

Together it's "only" 3% of the budget. The network might need more PR than it's been getting so far.

In the unlikely event that both proposals were funded, we would only hire the one with most votes and use the funds from the second one to extend the contract of the winner (the payment address in both in controlled by DCG). In the following month, we would ask the network to downvote the loser proposal.

We don't believe it is a good idea to have these two PR firms at this time. It can work under certain circumstances, but one has to lead and they need to fill different roles. We think it is better if we choose and then complement with other firms for specific things/geographies when the funds allow.

Voted no to both. Shift has some grainy picture and will report to DCG which STILL supports censorship on reddit.

And apparently Wachsman has past bad performance and an outrageous retainer fee.

Going to vote for various more grass roots proposals.

Okay, i'm a bit confused now. Shift proposal mentions 2 teams to select from on Dash Nexus. This wachsman proposal mentions 3 teams to select from on Dash Nexus. How many teams are in the running exactly ? I feel like we are missing a team.. hell, we could be missing the actual A Team :)

Originally there were three teams in the running, the morning of final submissions team 3 dropped out. Their legal team raised last minute concerns over the public process. Sorry for the confusion, I thought I had found all 3 team references and corrected.

No thanks!!

We are going through this whole PR change as a result of your performance in the past.

Why on gods earth would we vote yes, if we wanted to continue with wachsman we wouldnt be at this juncture
