After checking the list I think that there are enough candidates. I got some experience with DAOs because I have been paying close attention to the Cosmos ecosystem. That’s why I decided to join the forum.

@Hodlerboi you also want to join the council I presume? - If so we need to remove someone or we need to add another to make it an uneven number - what do you suggest?

I think that employing effective administrative practices towards the selection of (new) council members can enhance operations. Defining a clear recruitment and onboarding strategy for the council will optimize Panther’s community development and engagement.

Rightly so, you @ToXiC_eHC had your thoughts about which kind of individuals should be part of the council. Member selection, duration and removal should be crystalized out for the Governance Framework. A clear strategy on that regard through an effective selection process makes a lot of sense. Once this implicit process turned into a set of guidelines and rules the framework would be more robust for a longer period of time.

This could for example also include contributors from partnership ecosystems, or early community members which have contributed since the big bang, or privacy enthousiasts who genuinely care about the protocol. There are some good examples out there I would say like the Zcash Foundation, Cosmos and more.

My Proposed procedures to be adopted for the election of the council members/moderator.

:ballot_box_with_check: General Election Room.
:ballot_box_with_check: Nomination, election and the application process.

:ballot_box_with_check: General Election Room

A new category should be added to the Discourse called Council/ Moderator Election. (This is where election resources and process will be done). Within this category, there should be 5 sub-categories:

Announcements (sub-category 1)

This is where the election announcement wil be made throughout the cycle.

Council Nominees (sub-category 2)

This sub-category is where the community will be able to engage with, ask questions and seek clarification from nominees on their nomination profile pages of the council member nominees

Moderator nominees (sub-category 3)

This sub-category is where the community will be able to engage with, ask questions and seek clarification from nominees on their nomination profile pages of the moderator nominees

(Nominees are applicants that have submitted an application and completed the KYC and background verification process.)

Election Candidates (sub-category 4)

For the nominees profiles that has been proven and chosen by the community should be moved from “Council Nominees and moderators nominees ” to “Election Candidate sub-category. And could be on the basis of if:

There are 5 or fewer nominees in total or were there are greater than 5 nominees but the applicant is one of the top 5 nominees for council nominees)

Rejected/Withdrawn Nominations (sub-category 5)

Any application that is withdrawn by the applicant, rejected by a community vote (at either the nomination or election stage) or withdrawn for any other reason will be moved to his sub-category for record purpose.

:ballot_box_with_check: The Nomination and Elections Process
The preliminary process should be as follows:

Phase 1: Applications process

The candidate who which to submit themselves for the service should have to apply via a Google Form. Applicants should submit their KYC information, relevant documents, and nomination profile drafts.

Phase 2: Community discussions

The community discusses the nomination profile of those who pass the KYC and background verification process. Members to have a deliberation period to discuss and interact with the nominees.

Phase 3: When the nominees are finally chosen then the election can be done on Snapshot.

so, which structure is this most suitable for? the structure of voting on the forum with the selection of candidates or the structure with the submission of an application and the passage of KYC or all together ? I think we need a simple and convenient interaction tool

Apparently there is kyc involved in becoming a proposal moderator… of I read this correctly… @Joris @Hodlerboi ?

So @Hodlerboi no more being anonymous you must kyc privately via Google forms?

is the issue of anonymity crucial here? or is it not necessary? is everyone ready to lose anonymity?

Hodlerboi himself said he is a presale investor but does not want to be doxed when I suggested participation should require indicating actual ownership of ZKP… So curious his view on this.

I agree. The community is relatively small but sufficient to set up proposals. I am a private sale investor and I do not really want to be doxed for security reasons."

that’s why I asked if it contradicts the idea itself, I’m also interested in the opinion about it, I don’t think the Google app will provide anonymity, that’s my opinion

I agree @ToXiC_eHC. Thank you @Wisdom for the above. I agree with the above that KYC is necessary at this early stage in order to protect the Governance Framework from hostile takeovers. It’s important that community members with the best interests regarding the protocol are having their spot on the Moderator Council.

I see KYC as mandatory in order to prevent harmful takeovers by bad actors, competing projects and team members even.

The Zcash foundation has a lot of known people on their council, we can see how they manage this process, which already was pointed out above. Once this is done I can continue drafting up the governance flow diagram.
