How to use the Forum (READ BEFORE POSTING)

So you’ve come to participate in governance, but you’re not sure where to start? Then this is the post for you!

This post will briefly explain the different categories on the forum, how to use them, and how to craft an Ooki Improvement Proposal (OIP). If you have any questions or things you would like added please reply to this post below.

Categories

#ooki-improvement-proposals

This section of the forum is for fully fleshed out proposals to be presented to and discussed with the DAO. These posts should contain all the necessary information required by DAO members to be able to understand and critically analyse the proposal in full before it can be put to a vote.

A good example of this can be found below:

In general, the following formula should be followed as a bare minimum:

  • Proposal -    Describe what you want implemented
  • Reasoning - Explain why your proposal is advantageous to the protocol
  • Costs -      Detail the expected expenditure in regard to financials and dev time
  • Benefits -   List the expected benefits of implementing your proposal
  • Drawbacks - List the potential downsides of your proposal

Remember to title it well to accurately summarise your proposal, and respond to feedback in a fair and reasoned way. Feedback is expected to be given in the same way.

#draft-proposals

This section of the forum is for where you post a proposal that isn’t quite ready to be discussed in detail and needs a little more work. Posting a draft proposal here will get you feedback from the community and DAO employees on how to improve your post to a level where it can be shared as a fully fledged OIP.
Proposals that lack detail will also be moved to this category to receive feedback.

#ideas

This section of the forum is where ideas for improvement of the protocol should be posted when you are looking for more input to flesh it out before turning your idea into a proposal. You don’t need to follow a strict set of guidelines when proposing an idea, just ensure it is constructive and you are receptive to feedback.

#listing-proposals

This section of the forum is where you can propose assets to be listed to the protocol. When proposing a listing ensure you outline why you think this listing would be beneficial to Ooki. These reasons can be along the lines of:

  • The asset has significant trading volume that could be brought to Ooki
  • The asset currently lacks margin trading elsewhere but has strong demand for it
  • Significant social media traction to get involved with
  • Etc

Please note that listings on the protocol require a price feed (prior to permissionless listings) which if not already established can be time consuming to obtain.

#uncategorized

And finally, this section is for assorted discussion that doesn’t quite fit into the above categories.
