[OPEN CALL] Creatives DAO Moderators - 5 Positions Open

The current Creatives DAO Moderators (@ted.iv, @monish016, @FritzWorm, @adrianseneca and @hevertonharieno) are opening up new moderator positions expanding the current team from 5 to 10!

We were technically meant to open this call last month in accordance to the outlines given to us by the former moderators but lost track of time with the influx of workload.


How do I qualify for a Moderator position?


  • you or a DAO you are part of have proposed a minimum of 2 successful proposals to the Creatives AstroDAO or to another Vertical’s AstroDAO;
  • you have experience as a Council of a DAO;
  • you have actively engaged in the Creative Guild Leader Telegram Chat and here on the Governance Forum in the Creatives category;
  • you are serious and dedicated to cultivating a self sustainable future for the Creatives DAO

Then you are eligible for a Creatives DAO Moderator position!

Other criteria to be taken into account:

  • Diversity of backgrounds (we aim to represent the community as much as possible, therefore diversity will be taken into account);
  • Stats gallery;
  • Compliance with etiquette rules

Reply to this thread to state your interest with a bit about yourself, your Telegram handle, and the activities you’ve undertaken in the NEAR creative community so far.

Please submit your interest in being considered for one of the 5 Moderator spots we are opening on the Creatives DAO by Saturday, May 28th at 5pm EST.

What then?

After Saturday the 28th, we will assess the candidacy of each of the individuals who have replied on this thread and will [Approve] the 5 most engaged creative community members to post a poll on astrodao to join as moderators.

As soon as June 1st, we hope to have the new Moderator team formed. At the end of July, current members will begin to rotate out depending on the needs of the current project, and by August the new Moderators team is expected to publish an Open Call to increase the number of members to 9 in September.

These new Moderators can then expect to:

  • Help guide the future of Creative DAO by hosting community conversations specific to this topic, gathering/organizing community voices, delegating tasks within the community to achieve our deadlines, contributing to a proposal document, and a 6mo-1yr roadmap
  • Create Polls for all council members to be able to vote;
  • Vote internally on proposals and respect voting deadlines (7th of each month)
  • Make sure Guidelines are being followed;
  • When necessary, engage with proposals off chain (directly in the Forum), specifically if a proposal has not passed; passed proposals might not need off chain communication;
  • Be open to off chain communication when that is requested by the community;
  • Respond to and engage with all prospective creative community leaders posting their introductory posts on the Forum to help welcome and direct them to the Creative Guild Leaders Telegram chat & the Creatives DAO Discord server;
  • Engage with the creative community leaders in the Creative Guild Leaders Telegram chat - no one is expecting everyone to have the answers but if you have insights, information, or resources to share we’ll be looking to you to help our leaders trouble-shoot, brainstorm, and connect with one another;
  • Attend and host weekly Creative Leaders meetups (traditionally held on Mondays at 5-6pm EST but always subject to change dates and times) to help foster the NEAR Creative Community;

For this, we will offer these 5 new Moderators, 250 NEAR monthly moving forward for as long as they choose to remain as active contributing members of the council. Council members will not sit on the Moderation team for more than 6 months. Current Moderators members will sit on the council until end of July, to guarantee a smooth transition.

If the above sounds feasible and exciting to you, register your desire to join the Moderation team below now!

Roadmap for turnout

A few expectations and rules for the Creatives DAO moderators to follow in order to increase transparency and decentralization:

  • A solid first draft proposal/road map for the Creative DAO future completed by July 1st which will be passed on to new moderators to lead
  • Moderators members stay in their role for ideally 6 months (2 periods of 3 months).
  • The suggested turnout system is as follows:
  • The number of Moderators members should be 9 (this will happen on the Open Call of May).
  • Moderators members can stay on as moderators for two periods of 3 months.
  • They enter by replying to an Open Call, and 3 months later they have to organize and publish an Open Call.
  • Moderators members on the role for 6 months rotate out, and new moderators rotate in.
  • There should be at least 9 moderators at all times. The only exception is this transition period, because otherwise a group of new Moderation members would stay on the role for only 3 months. If a Moderators drops out by their own choice, it should be replaced by an Open Call.
  • In practical terms, the current Moderators will remain in functions just until the new Council Members are adapted to the role they are expected to perform. July 31st will mark the exit of current Moderators. By the end of August, the existing Moderators (5) will add 4 more. Three months later, a new Open Call is created and the 5 Moderators with 6 months on the role will rotate out, the 4 Moderators with 3 months on the role will continue, and 5 more Moderators will be added.
  • This process will then be repeated, until the community finds better ways to manage turnout (i.e. transparency and decentralization).

We are looking forward to expanding our team with you! :slight_smile:

I wish to participate but I don’t know much about the creative DAO. Can someone put me through?



TG - @realmassey

This is amazing news! I’d be very happy to apply for the position to take up the roles and responsibilities shared.

I’ve been on the council of Spiritual DAO for 3 months.

I was introduced by @johanga to spiritual DAO where I started creating podcast content for.

Next month I was taken in as a Council member.

Since then I have

  1. Created monthly themes for spiritual DAO
  2. Designed cryptovoxel and hosted events in the voxel
  3. Interviewed spiritual teachers from around the world and educated them about Spiritual DAO and NEAR
  4. Created monthly themes and ran bounties for community participation
  5. Created themes for digital products creation

I also conducted a successful experiment of onboarding 60 news wallets with the help of Goa dao in as low a cost as $500.
With this onboarding experiment we got new ideas about how we can onboard using NFTs and found some areas of improvement and strength as shown in the link below

I’m now working towards self sustainability for Spiritual DAO by

  1. Getting revenue via existing web 2.0 websites
  2. Generating revenue through digital products like guided meditations and physical products like tarot cards
  3. Onboarding more people by partnering in real life events in India and Brazil

Apart from offering services required to the community of creatives DAO and other communities associated with it, my main focus with creatives DAO would be to offer strategies and operational support to increase the longevity of the DAO and make the creatives DAO and associated DAOs more self sustainable.

I’d like to propose a 2 way approach for self sustainability of Creatives DAO and other DAOs associated with it.

  1. Generating cash flow for the DAOs
  2. Investing in NEAR owned protocols.

My main objectives -

  1. To be always prepared even if the funding gets a hit
  2. To have a steady source of income through various corporate and non corporate partnerships
  3. To find the best resources in the NEAR ecosystem to invest in so the income can grow a bit more and communities can achieve interoperability.

In the post mentioned below you can see some of the ideas I’ve offered

I’m open to any responsibility and role that might be given to me and would be very eager to learn more and help more so we can grow stronger as a community!



have a great day!
i feel strong inner response to set reply here, so
please, submit my interest :slight_smile:

TG: @johanga_n
Lead Council of #goa-dao since November-December 2021
actively and successfuly proposing and reporting to Marketing and (later)Creatives Verticals. it’s the greatest 6 months among last 6 years I’ve had! being grateful to NEAR ecosystem for that experience, i wish to bring benefit and growth to the community back - the reason of posting here now:)
*education: Bachelor of Media and Communication; Master of visual and cultural studies (European Humanities University, Lithuania); Curator of cultural projects (European Cultural Foundation)

as GoaDAO i’m onboarding creative projects and people to NEAR ecosystem, exploring dApps and tools on NEAR Protocol, educating about it through holding weekly meetups and monthly contests, preparing guides, and curating individuals with great creatives ideas and projects. with basic purpose - to spread awareness about NEAR Protocol, its opportunities and instruments - answering questions and clarifying is my main activity that i’m totally excited with:) supporting not only initiative and enthusiasm, but the quality of realisation the idea, openness to study, and achieving excellent results.

according to roadmap i’m planning to perform a number of inter-DAOs events (both educational and creative), to join and gather community’s activities and projects of different regions and creatives sub-categories. here i see the way of unity and collaboration between DAOs as an option to grow in a powerful sustainable community for the future.
the main points in every my effort and decision are 1) discovering the real aim/purpose/goal (of action/activity, conversation or direction); 2) to move on to it purposefully and fluidly with 3) recieving feedbacks from surrounds and changing strategy accordingly to it. this helps to follow the line of guidelines in creative ways, to have open and strong community interactions; and to be encouraged every day by exploring new. with this approach and energy i feel myself quite prepared to become useful part of Moderation team :pray:

Being part of Near ecosystem is being something incredible! sometimes I fell like I’m some kind of Near evangelist, “Do you have some time to listen to the Near’s words?” :sweat_smile:

I wish I had more time to engage as a Creatives DAO mod right now, but I’m am multitasking on a lot of on and off-chain projects for the next months… but now that I learned how the positions change, I’ll keep myself close to apply on a next appropriated moment :crossed_fingers:

Hello guys!

I’ll present the requested info for you to consider, as well as my reasons why I think I could add value to the team.

First of all:

I understand that been in a council DAO is a big responsibility to serve, rather than a privilege. You are not a boss, but a community server. And it is the same for moderation.
This is about working with different people, each one with a particular culture, religion, social context, or way to be. And it must be done with a high level of respect for others, kindly discussing different situations, no matter if people agree with your ideas or not. Yielding in many times, more than defending one’s ideas. And to be prepare for Giving the extra mile if necesary.

I take this as a serious job! And that is why I’ve been accepted in three different DAOs as a council member. I have been actively working in them for free, proposing Ideas, and working for improvements to the community, after proving my enthusiasm and my commitment to serve.

DAO Council

I’ve been doing my part in de governance forum as well. recognized as a Community DAO Member

my personal link to the forum here

Knowledge, skills, and profile

  • NCA, NCP, NCE approved
  • Creative Artist (Musician)
  • Blockchain enthusiast.
  • Linux Server Administrator, Webmaster, crypto trader.

My contributions to the NEAR Community.

Recently I’ve been named as a Project Manager for the NEAR VENEZUELA GUILD. Among with all of our great leaders, we are currently running a successful marketing vertical campaign for several projects coming from our Guild.

Despite I’m an artist on my own, I didn’t know about the creative group! That is why I would like to be part of it, to educate, to share knowledge and experiences, as I believe this is the truly way to set the bases for any ecosystem to sustain itself, and grow.

My NCE was based in a project for artists. It was about how to protect their creations for copyright affairs, through and NFT.
