This is in response to some of the community panicking about the current ZWAP proposal. I think we should have some clear guidelines moving forward for any governance portal that gets introduced. For example there is currently a proposal on ZWAP portal and it does not list the “For” or “Against”. Frankly it does not follow ZIP-12 guidelines. So how can we prevent something like this moving forward?
We should consider creating clear guidelines for any new portal that gets introduced before any proposals can be brought to the table.
Another thing I want to bring to your attention is if there was a cooldown period where people can digest and talk about the proposal. Sort of how a bill gets introduced, and discussed in politics before it can be voted on. So for example:
- A proposal goes live in the portal.
- A timeframe where the button will be disabled, so the community can discuss the ramifications of such proposal. All proposals in each and every single portal must list both sides of the argument.
- Voting goes live, and the community starts voting.
Another reason why I think we need to implement a cooldown period is that Zilliqa is a global effort, so there are many language or knowledge barriers the community has to go through before a proposal can be fully understood.
What are your thoughts on this?
