[REPORT] Creatives DAO Moderator Role - ted.iv

Hello.

Here’s a quick summary of my first month as a moderator for the Creatives DAO. It was a very steep learning curve for me, but I feel quite confident now from all of the reading and insight from all of the moderators that previously were part of the council. This month was the first for a lot of instances in the near ecosystem, and one substantial change has been the new payout system and how creatives dao has restructured itself around this to become more decentralized. It’s had its bumps, but is definitely on the right track.

Summary

  • Attended each of the weekly Creatives DAO calls via telegram.
  • Attended two internal team meetings of all of the moderators to discuss the transition and the future of creatives DAO.
  • Began interacting with several DAOs in the forum and guiding them through the proposal process
  • Several one-to-one interactions for guidance through the form both digitally and in person
  • Several discussions, in person, with new creatives keen to join the community
  • Onboarded one full DAO: [Introduction] Garden Collective DAO
  • Active participation in telegram group both for moderators and general creatives dao
  • Active participation in voting process on astrodao (and learned a lot more about the custom function call process)
  • Read… a lot!
  • Connected with a lot more inspiring creatives in the community.

Thank you!

May saw quite a lot of movement in the Creatives DAO on a macro scale, especially considering the future path of the DAO and onboarding the new moderators who will come on board to take our place this month.

Personally, I feel like this month saw the community come closer together and pool resources in order to move towards a sustainable future for the DAO and I have been really impressed with the input and energy that has been presented by the community on these matters.

Activity Overview

  • Guided 13+ individual DAOs through their funding processes directly
  • Co-hosting the weekly community calls on telegram
  • Brain-storming topics to discuss on the community calls
  • Along with the other moderators developed our system for choosing and onboarding new moderators, which consisted of a combination or assessment and direct conversation/debate about candidates and I’m very happy with the outcome of this.
  • Established connection with NEARhub about the Creatives DAO space and began developing the idea for proposal.
  • Running Astrodao troubleshooting/direction for people with issues
  • General scheduling of our internal team calls
  • Collaborative drafting of the future roadmap of Creatives DAO post & plan

To summarise, it’s been a very busy month with a lot of large-scale conversations as well as one-to-one interactions, quite a few of which may have slipped my mind in activity overview, but I feel that it has been a real starting point for some very interesting conversations throughout the community and the momentum is rolling in our favour.

Thanks!

June has been the busiest month of moderation duty to date, for me. With the introduction of the new moderators, a lot of important (and possibly overdue) conversations have been instigated, and the new perspective has been greatly appreciated on my part. Creatives DAO is yet again in a big transition, but I’m quite confident that the new mods that have come on board are pushing in the right direction.

Activity Overview:

  • Active involvement in the process of onboarding the new moderators (and learning from them in the process).
  • Main contact point for 17 DAOs for their monthly proposals, with the assistance of the new moderators on some of these proposals.
  • Co-hosted two of the weekly community calls and participated in all 4.
  • Initiated a call between Creatives DAO and Marketing DAO (hopefully the first of many) where we exchanged processes, outlooks, and ideas.
  • Contact point to gather information from previous moderators re: grants application
  • 2 to 3 internal weekly meetings covering topics such as: proposals, grants application, new moderators’ feedback, and the future of creatives DAO.
  • 1 community call with the Brazilian community, initiated by @blusw (also, hopefully, the first of many).
  • General day-to-day contact in the moderator’s chat and relaying that info to the community, which is by far the most time-consuming, but also the most essential part of the process.
  • Managed to catch one fine dose of covid in the process, but with minimal symptoms, so more time for reading :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

Thanks once again to the community for their contribution to and patience with the process so far!
