My only thoughts, and of course bias, around this would be my attendance and audio recording of almost every Gov-naut meeting.

So, I love the work Pupil did to make this really simple for olthers to express a point of view.

I disagree with some of the ratios which I will share below. I made no arguments about pre X1, because I was around for such a small part of it, I don’t believe it is reasonable for me to have an opinion.

  • I think it is a mistake to equate the responsibility and task work of a project lead with a Pod lead, so I reduced project lead value by 30% to 7 points.
  • I think equating general meeting participation with the work of a Pod Lead was too high, so I reduced that by 40% to 6 points. It’s not that some members participation wasn’t invaluable, but that some of the reward here should be intrinsic, and without the ability to generate income, I am reluctant to highly reward just showing up.
  • Similarly, I reduced low meeting participation but by 60% to 2 points.
  • Finally, I questioned equating Delegate to Pod Lead responsibility, especially in light of so few members to represent other than themselves. I wasn’t sure if that should be a 30% or a 50% reduction.

Oh, I also thought Cadena and Aia should get credit for designing a point based system with significant role inclusion. In our version that did not include Delegates, whose current extra responsbilities are really only attending one extra meeting a week.

So, if I did my subtraction correctly the final X1 to Date Total Points is: 112

A version of this draft with changes can be found here: aia’s version

Please review the below for any further suggestions, concerns, or questions. I plan to put a formal proposal forward for gov-naut on Wednesday 29 June as we agreed in the last discussion we had on Treasury Management X1 work.

Thank you @aia and @PostArchitekt for the feedback. Rather than edit the original post (and make it harder to see what has changed), I’ve used aia’s version to make changes based on your input below. Highlights building on what aia put together:

  • Set the delegate role to 7 points
  • Added a role for recorder and credited 4 points in each work stream that applies to
  • Removed Optimism governance task from plans based on recent consensus
