Engaging members and establishing effective decision-making in web3 communities pose significant challenges. These communities are in the midst of various experiments, yielding mixed outcomes.
The CharmVerse Proposal Builder improves and simplifies the process of creating high-quality proposals for both Web3 natives and newcomers while fostering community engagement at an earlier stage.
When looking at DAO governance there's often a lack of member participation in the form of web3 voting, which can result in the stagnation of critical initiatives. Valuable insights from members who didn't initiate proposals often go untapped, as they aren't afforded the opportunity to contribute before proposals face a vote.
Other web3 organizations that host hackathons and run grant programs are forced to use a multitude of tools to collect and review submissions, offer feedback, and evaluate projects. A common thread among these web3 organizations is that they yearn to have everything in one place. One tool that will enable them to carry out all of these actions.
While the CharmVerse Proposal Builder 1.0 has been the go-to solution for many of these governance challenges, we're excited to announce, that it just got better!
With added evaluation options, a place for community feedback, built-in organization, and customizable permissions, the CharmVerse Proposal Builder aims to serve as your central hub for Web3 decision-making within your community.
The Importance of Proposals
Proposals give community members the opportunity to share their ideas within their community. Typically, a Proposal consists of a document that outlines a concept, its implementation plan, and the logistical and financial aspects required to bring the idea to fruition. This could be a DAO Proposal, Grant application, Hackathon submission, or even an enthusiast in a Creative Community using Proposals to engage in the decision-making processes of a brand or content creator.
The CharmVerse Proposal Builder offers a user-friendly, step-by-step process for crafting organized and succinct proposals, thereby inspiring fellow members to participate and contribute.
Enhanced Evaluation Methods
When crafting a proposal within CharmVerse, you have the choice between two evaluation methods: Vote or Rubric.
CharmVerse offers the flexibility of hosting community votes directly within the platform, providing both single-choice and multi-choice voting options. Additionally, through our Snapshot integration, you gain access to a wide array of additional voting methods, such as ranked voting, quadratic voting, weighted voting, etc. and the results are accessible on both platforms.
Our newest evaluation method, the Rubric feature, empowers a core group to assess proposals, such as hackathon submissions and grant proposals, using a customizable rubric consisting of criteria of your choice. Feedback can be given and reviewers can assign scores. A sliding scale, determined by the core team, is utilized to rate submissions. Ultimately, these submissions can be calculated and viewed, streamlining the process of identifying winning entries. From grant programs to hackathons, the Rubric option proves invaluable in helping Web3 communities effectively evaluate and reward participants.
Streamline the Proposal Process
To enhance efficiency and organization within our proposal system, we've introduced Templates that help users create consistent and effective proposals using predefined templates. This feature allows you to set default categories, reviewers, evaluation types, and content for each template, simplifying the proposal creation process and ensuring all pertinent information is clearly defined.
Default parameters can be set for each template as well:
Category: Assign each template to a specific category for easy categorization.
Reviewers: Designate default reviewers who will be automatically assigned to proposals created from this template.
Evaluation Type: Specify the type of evaluation required for proposals generated from this template.
Content: Preload template content to provide guidance and ensure consistency in proposal submissions.
We recognize the significance of maintaining order, so Templates can be conveniently organized into Categories, simplifying the process of locating and managing your templates. Furthermore, effective management of permissions is pivotal in retaining control over your proposal workflow. The Proposal Builder gives admins the power to control who can propose, review, and evaluate proposals within each category. This means you can assign distinct roles and responsibilities to different members based on the category, ensuring a structured and secure proposal management process.
With these advanced features in place, our goal is to simplify your proposal management, boost efficiency, and uphold a consistent standard in your proposals. Whether you're working with a large community or managing proposals within a small grants council, our Proposal Builder offers the flexibility and control you need.
A Guided Experience
Users are guided through a multi-step process when creating a Proposal. The specific steps you'll follow depend on the chosen evaluation type. Here's a breakdown:
For all Proposals:
Draft: Every proposal begins as a draft, allowing you to shape your ideas until they're ready to be shared with the community.
Feedback: At this point, the broader community can contribute comments, suggest modifications, and conduct polls. This collaborative phase occurs well before the proposal undergoes formal review and evaluation.
For the "Vote" Evaluation Type:
In Review: After the community has shared their insights and suggestions for a proposal, the assigned reviewers take over. They assess the proposal before it proceeds to the next step.
Reviewed: The Reviewers move the Proposal to Reviewed when they decide it is ready to be sent to a vote. At this point, the author of the Proposal can initiate the vote by pushing it to Vote Active.
Vote Active: The proposal is in now put up for a community vote, where community members can have their say in the decision-making process.
Vote Closed: The voting period has ended and no additional votes can be cast or changed.
For the "Rubric" Evaluation Type:
Evaluation Active: At this juncture, all designated reviewers have the opportunity to score the proposal based on the defined rubric.
Evaluation Closed: Once the results are in and the evaluation is complete, the proposal is moved to Evaluation Closed. Access to the results can be configured to meet your specific needs.
This process ensures that your proposals progress efficiently through the necessary stages, combining community input, core group review, and official evaluation/vote, all within the Proposal Builder.
Once the evaluation stage is complete, you have the ability to pull proposal information from the Proposals feature into a database. This allows you to compile results and easily process the evaluations of the community.
Stay in the loop
We try our best not to bother you. We only send notifications when action is needed on a proposal. In our commitment to foster community engagement, we inform members via in-app notifications and emails when a proposal is open for discussion, review, or evaluation.
