Proposal: Ecosystem Wiki(s)
I would like to launch a Wiki for NEAR Ecosystem and hope to gather support from community to fill it in and help maintain going forward.
Currently there are some info on the https://near.org page but it’s naturally limited and updated slowly as it’s designed to attract attention and route people. Future rebrand is going to just make that more clear but not going to create more place for content. Website is also maintained by the Foundation and has limited capacity for maintenance of so…
You know, when we think about it, this forum is kind of a NEAR wiki for wikis!
Getting Started ~ Ask Why NEAR?

Answering the above question is not simple. We all have our own purposes, and there are meaningful communities everywhere. NEAR is one of a kind, and it has many unique advantages. You might even say there are infinite reasons why being part of NEAR is worthwhile

Each and every guild is encouraged to create a forum thread (a.k.a. topic) in order to facilitate more interactions with our ecosystem of guilds / communities

This category is for discussion about specific Guilds (communities with a unique identity based on related projects and goals) or the general ideas of Guilds. We are both individually and collectively deciding objectives and key results, while creating opportunities to learn, build, and grow. Our mission is to drive meaningful participation, sustainable development, and positive impact by intentionally coordinating various groups of contributors.
Streamlined Rewards for Guild Contributors
This post will explain how (and why) guild leaders may create Sputnik DAOs and request budgets for distribution to individual contributors. While teaching others about our new process, you can help our community experiment with decentralized autonomous organizations (DAOs).
Earlier this year, we introduced a more open system for guild reports on the forum. However, payouts are still managed through a centralized process that relies on traditional invo…
