Proposal description

Should Fernando Gutierrez continue to be the Chief Marketing Officer for Dash Core Group?

I recognize Fernando's earlier contributions when Dash was just starting, but things are different now. The IT Department of DCG improved significantly with Bob Carroll, because he is qualified CTO that was hired on merit. There are thousands of better professionals in the USA (where DCG is), and hundreds of websites and agencies that help companies connect with executives.

In my opinion, he isn't doing a good job and only got the role because of his early volunteering plus a personal relationship with Ryan Taylor. I understand the desire to reward individuals for loyalty and sticking around, but positions should be awarded for competence and re-evaluated periodically for performance. Build him a statue, name a feature after him, present a trophy, but let us move forward with someone new and get good Marketing done.

Rather than making any points, I'll let his results and the man speak for himself.

Watch him complain there's no money for Marketing with a $200k/month budget.

Received $260,000 USD on February 2018.

Received $1.23 million USD on March 2018
https://www.dashcentral.org/p/mrktg-coregroup-032018

As far as determining the result of this proposal, a simple majority would suffice (like the logo and 2mb blocks).  This isn't a vote on whether Fernando should be fired, but whether he should continue as Chief Marketing Officer: 
More Yes's = he stays as CMO, more No's = DCG is instructed to hire a new talented CMO from the market.

Because those who criticize Dash are lumped together and discredited as trolls, I chose this question format and made it a net +10 DASH proposal (-5 + 15) deliberately, so that the Macrochip's and Gerhard's have an incentive to vote the topic and not to punish the proposer.

Thanks to proposal owner for bringing awareness to this problem. I believe Dash can do better with the real and professional CMO (not current one amateur misanthrope).

Why I voted no
DashForceNews does not cover the development of Evolution, at least on a monthly basis
The DCG product updates no longer includer updates on Evolution
Heidi does not cover Evolution
I do not have any source of information for Evolution
Reply

Dash News and Heidi get funded through the Dash News budget proposal and is therefore irrelevant to this discussion.

There are sources about Evolution, you just need to look for Dash Platform & Dash Core v1.0 topics. Like these :

https://www.dash.org/forum/threads/dash-platform-side-chain.48396/

This poll is invalid anyways and there are now enough NO votes to deny it the 15 Dash funding. Thank you for helping with that by voting no.

The Masternode Network could surely vote to fire a specific employee
Reply

Dash governance model has one primary role : to allocate budget funding. The governance model also allows optional polling of the network in a non-binding way.

So no, the masternode network can not fire specific employee directly.

Well we can through withholding funding if we chose to, also by having the Trust protectors we elected excersize our will on DCG.
Reply

Dash governance withholding funding of a budget proposal by receiving so much no votes that it drops below 10% treshold, is totally different to stating Dash governance can fire specific employees.

Dash governance having some indirect control over its Trust Protectors , is totally different to stating Dash governance can fire specific employees.
Reply
1 point,10 months ago
Exactly. Employees are a HR issue and internal matter for the board of DCG to manage.

The trust protectors can remove/replace individuals on the board of DCG if we (the network) believe it’s in the best interests of the DAO. A governance proposal can be used to guide the Trust Protectors on such an action, but this particular proposal is NOT a governance proposal.

As samli88 pointed out, masternode owners have a 4th voting option available to them, which is to vote "delete yes" to delete this proposal from the budget list and memory entirely. It will need 66% support I think samli88 wrote. I'm asking rango if this option can be integrated into Dash Central.

Now it may be difficult to reach 66%, but it can serve as a strong signal to indicate something is very wrong with such a proposal. Specially if it gets more votes then the other voting options.

Very strange proposal.

Reply

Simple question: Why did you structure it with a payout of 15 Dash instead of 5 Dash? A governance proposal has never asked for more than 5 Dash. Plus, it's phrased totally backwards such that if we give Fernando a big vote of approval with many YES votes, you get rewarded with Dash. I have no idea if this was intentional or just sloppy.

I'm abstaining until the ambiguity and weirdness goes away.

I would point out that this proposal demonstrates the censorship resistance of the Dash Treasury system. ANYBODY can put up a proposal for 5 Dash.

Abstain is a valid vote.

If anything, this demonstrate Dash lacks governance and the ability to respect users. I only wanted a new CMO and a better moderator, now I'm not sure I want to continue investing in this.

To realist,
Oh, I read the proposal, but found the explanation lacking. Why would giving yourself an extra 10 Dash make the Macrochips and Gerhards less likely to punish the proposer? It seems pretty self evident that it would make them want to punish you more. A does not lead to B. So..no further explanation?

If MNOs are really against this you know it's possible to vote to delete it?

You have to use your MN to do so... `gobject vote-conf <proposal-id> delete yes`, on each individual masternode. If enough MNs didn't want to tolerate this (I think the threshold is > 66%) then they can literally vote this off the network.
Reply

My point is that as MNOs we don't have to tolerate this abuse if we don't want to. We have the votes and can delete the proposals we consider invalid. Dash was never a democracy, is always a meritocracy.

We don't have to put up with abusive actors in the system. So let's don't. Just shut it down.

Come on now guys, would you please cease the constant attacks against this PO? It's ridiculous...

The question asked by this proposal is legit, and it gives us opportunity to vote on the issue.
It should be clear, the MNO network has the final say and can override or supersede decisions made by DCG.
And yes, if true, it is indeed problematic if some people get their position mainly because of a personal relationship, rather than performance, ability and results.

Having said that, i'd like to advise the PO in future to not ask for more than 5 Dash reimbursement for each non-funding governance proposal, as well as align a Yes outcome with the potential change introduced by the proposal, and a No outcome with the status quo, not vice-versa.
This will safeguard the meaningfulness of a raised question, and prevent the usual trolls to distract attention away from the raised question itself.

I consider this proposal invalid as a polling proposal for reasons outlined already. Looking at the comments it's pretty clear that most masternode owners do not see this proposal as a valid polling of the network either.

This means the polling part of the proposal failed already and is not legit in any way or form.

"The question asked by this proposal is legit, and it gives us opportunity to vote on the issue.

Dash Core Group for example is not Dash. It is a foreign entity with it's own decision making processes regarding team size and employees. That said, circumstances have changed in early 2019, thus specific oversights of the Dash Core Group can be potentially be sought via the elected Trust Protectors.
Reply
1 point,10 months ago
I understand your objection that a DAO verdict regarding an employment position within DCG cannot be enforced or legally binding, because DCG is not Dash itself.
But if in contrast, the MNO network would decide about a technical aspect of Dash, DCG could refuse to obey by arguing along the same rhetoric. It's bs and you know it.

Legally speaking the vote of the DAO may have 'only' guidance character in such a matter. Agreed.
But it really doesn't matter, because ultimately DCG should not dare to ignore the wishes of the network but needs to respect, honor and obey the decisions made by the DAO (whatever they are).
Or assuming the risk of doing the exact opposite and face the potential consequences.

Trust Protectors either don't have the power to remove/replace somebody, will never come to a two-thirds agreement among them in such a matter, let alone dare to pull it off, even if (!) it were the right thing to do.
They are a toothless tiger.
There is no reason to argue the DAO should be too.

Trust Protectors aside, the DAO simply decides whether treasury funds should be allocated to DCG. The DAO make their own decisions about code and staff etc. DCG may provide transparency to keep DAO voters happy.

Walter, you are doing a disservice for Dash by suggesting that MNOs are too dumb to understand a simple question, or that they are too careless and vote without paying attention. What part of a Yes/No/Abstain question is ridiculous? If you don't think this is valid, you can vote Abstain. Everyone here knows exactly what they're doing.

I have paid 5 Dash to ask the question to the Dash network, and I have offered to put Dash in escrow with Dash Watch. It is not written anywhere that a proposal has to be for X DASH, or that it has to be stated in the positive.

Also, be very careful with your comments. What makes you think you have the power to ignore a Governance proposal, or decide which one is legitimate or isn't? Dash is decentralized, not your pet project, Mr. Trust Protector.

Finally, there is no reason to call me a dickhead, to say I'm wasting MNOs time, and call my proposal ridiculous and meaningless. It's not surprising that you get along well with Macrochip. Someone in your position should be more respectful towards others.

The poll is meaningless. There is a total lack of understanding as to how Dash Core Inc. and the Dash DAO is structured.

1. Management of resources and employees are an internal matter for the directors of Dash Core Group Inc.
2. Only the board of Directors have the power to decide on how best to run the company. That includes HR management.
3. The Dao has no say on hiring/firing of individual employees of Dash Core Group Inc.
4. The trust protectors only have the ability to make changes to the board of Directors should the network decisively request change, via a governance vote.

If your question was “should we remove Fernando as a Director of Dash Core Group Inc.?” Then action could be taken by the trust protectors should the DAO vote decisively for us to do this.

At the end of the day, marketing at Dash Core and how it is run is an internal matter. It’s up to Ryan and the other Directors to manage.

Why are you asking for 15 Dash? This proposal is null and void. If we vote YES, we are voting to pay you. If we vote NO, you will take it as a sign that we want Fernando fired.

The proposal is null and void. Try again with a 5 Dash payout just to cover the proposal fee, and then this will be a legitimate vote.
Reply

No it won't. You can't change the rules and say "yes means no and no means yes". The proposal automatically is a "no" if MNOs abstain (i.e. doesn't pass). The system is based on 10% of MNOs voting "yes" = "yes".

Yes does not mean no. Proposal owners can't just make up their own rules however they want.
Reply

YES = YES.
NO = NO.
Abstain = Abstain.

You don't get to change the rules either. This is a decision question and not a funding proposal.
Reply

You made it a funding proposal when you requested 15 dash.
Those voting NO are voting NO to that 15 Dash and also most likely because this is all pointless, the DAO has no control over internal job functions inside DCG. The DAO only has control over budgets, and indirectly some control through the Trust Protectors.

Which makes this proposal both invalid and pointless as a polling mechanism.

You don't get to decide what proposals are null and void. I paid the 5 Dash fee. It is a YES/NO question and if you don't like the wait is is structured then vote ABSTAIN.

I also offered to put 10 DASH on escrow on Dash Watch, since you guys are willing to ruin Dash's governance and make all this mess over $600.

I've spent 5 Dash making this proposal. I'll only receive 10 DASH ($600) if the proposal is funded. And I just spend another 5 DASH to make a proposal on Macrochip, so now I am only "scamming" the Dash DAO for +5 DASH.

You are not getting the 15 Dash that you are requesting from the DAO, plain and simple.

Code is clear indeed : polling proposals are specifically 5 Dash, this budget proposal is 15 Dash and more importantly this proposal is also directly conflicting with my voting options. Therefore poll is not valid and should be considered like any other budget proposal.

Which means the normal voting options for funding can be used (yes for funding, no for no funding, abstain if you dont have a preference for yes or no).

I am pooling the network on Fernando. I spent 5 DASH on this proposal, 5 DASH on Macrochip's, and proposals need supermajority to be funded.

Because taking the position AGAINST yours involves potentially awarding you 15 dash. Do you not see how this is at odds? It's a fundamentally flawed proposal. If you want to change the status quo, the vote to change the status quo should be in the affirmative. By crossing up the funding into this you have made it impossible to ascertain whether people are voting no because they agree with your proposal or whether they're voting no because they don't want you to be funded. Tip for the future, if you want to *change* the status quo, then tie the change to an *affirmative* vote. Going "vote to fund me if you disagree with me" is just a flat out cluster.

Both 2MB blocks and the logo were adopted after a supermajority was achieved. A simple majority is not relevant. Also, governance questions do not request Dash over the required reimbursement amount — as that colors the decision. That is the clear precedent.

As far as I am concerned this is not a valid poll of the masternodes.

So to summarize... "Rather than making any points" I'll share some cherry-picked misinformation about how much money the marketing budget was funded 18 months ago (which is based on the price at the time the funding was requested near the peak value of dash, not the amount actually received), and I'll withhold how the much smaller amount of funding actually received was spent.

Let's set aside whether or not individual roles should be voted on by the DAO and whether MNOs have enough visibility into individual performance from the outside to make this decision more effectively than the organization they work for. Let's also set aside whether it is a good idea to incentivize individuals working for DAO-funded entities to spend their time doing their jobs or instead make sure they spend their time promoting themselves effectively to the DAO to make sure the MNOs think highly of them. Setting those issues aside, you don't share any information here on why you personally think he's doing a bad job other than some budgets from early 2018 that never amounted to much once the price moved down rapidly in the spring of 2018 and fixed cost parts of them (like for conferences) were paid.

Anyone can create a budget proposal for 5 Dash, give it a title ending with a questionmark and then put his own favourable terms / conditions to it and call it a polling proposal or pooling proposal or whatever you want to call it. However it is still the masternode owners that get to decide how to allocate the available Dash budget. Since the proposal fees are still part of that unallocated budget, it is up to each masternode owner to decide if they want to allocate it on a polling proposal fee or if they want to allocate it on a actual budget proposal. This will depends on the polling proposal itself and how important it is to the whole Dash network.

I decided that the Dash proposal fees for both this proposal and your other proposal (together 20 Dash), is far better allocated towards budget proposals that put actual value to the network.

Which means i vote NO to free those proposal fees (20 Dash) up for actual budget proposals.
This means that masternode owners voting options (yes, no, abstain) can overrule any voting conditions / favourable terms in these proposals.

Notice how many people are trying to discredit this proposal, but not a single one is willing to put $300 to ask the questions in the format they're accusing me of not following.

I only wanted a better CMO and Reddit moderator, there was no need for so many of you to attack me personally. You have called me a dickhead, said my proposal was ridiculous and meaningless, asked if I was dropped in my head as a child, said that I'm making a bullshit story, accused me of bing a scammer, and also called me a piece of shit and moron in your chat room.

You are not good people. This is circulating on Twitter and will likely be news in a few days and will cause millions in losses.

"More Yes's = he stays as CMO, more No's = DCG is instructed to hire a new talented CMO from the market. "

Incorrect, more No's in this case simply means your "proposal" will not pass the treshold and will not receive any funding. Nothing more, nothing less.

I agree with that Tungfa said below: (the) "code is clear".
"Vote NO = i do not want fernando to be CMO ; )
Vote YES = i do want fernando to be .... + proposal owner getting paid
Vote ABSTAIN = none of this matters as it will not pass !!"

Except I will NOT be paid on this proposal. Ever. Proposals are only paid with SUPERMAJORITY. And even if I get paid, it'll be 5 Dash, which I will gladly donate to the DIF.

18/18 comments so far were ad hominem attacks on me. Great!
