[Weekly reports] Marketing DAO council Dacha

Good evening , Thank You! :wave::wave::wave:


Awesome work @Dacha So much research and input in few days. Keep up the good work.


Week 52 continue

  • Taking with Marketing DAO grantees about current issues. Main is timing and lack of transparency,
  • Working with new proposals.
  • And fixing fixing fixing tags. Why councils don’t put attention on proposals tags?

I agree that it is necessary to share information with people more often, and also to strengthen control over the allocation of funds. :face_with_monocle:


@Dacha I really love the work you are putting in and am sure with people like you, efficiency can be close to ideal

Fixed tons of tags and titles.


  1. Probably, need to update our instucton , add some new titles

[Delay, sicnce $date, reason]

[Rejected, reason]

It definetly will help to our grantees understand status of their proposals.

  1. Some members using wrong tags for reports, it makes finding process very difficult. I think we need to update our guidance, and ask people to do reports at the same thread with proposal.

Work with reports.

For example

Proposal + no discussions + no reports

And couple worlds about Equal access:

In December Marketing DAO got 30 proposals, approved only 5 (4 of them supervised by NF people).


Great job!
We need to clone @Dacha :slight_smile:


This massive input is really exceptional.
You’re doing great @Dacha
This kind of energy and work rate is why NEAR will always remain at the top.


Just a great job! There was a great lack of such systematization. From the Kitchen Guild side, I fully approve of such activities! This will help make the community more open and professional! Thank you @Dacha


You’re an absolute legend, thanks a lot for your work!

Week 1

Still working with proposals.

Have been found something weird.

Instead of approve funding (social media) in Marketing DAO, guilds were offered to work with Flying Rhino. I asked my 8 questions and still waiting for response.

Looks like Flying Rhino is an internal NF project. Leadership used to work with @Ozymandius

List of all projects and prices are hidden. I understand, NF wants to promote some projects and Guilds, but it should be transparent system with equal access to Near community, because active communication will be one of criteria in new tiering system.

It’s kind of discrimination. Some guilds and members that already work with Flying Rhino definitely have better communications in social media.

I think, Flying Rhino should work directly with guilds and community members @Grace @jlwaugh @David_NEAR

New tiering system spreads on Marketing DAO activities.

So, please, don’t forget to do your report on time.

Here is a list of members and guilds that didn’t provide reports. Please, let me know, if you found mistakes. Really, not easy to navigate and find important information on the forum.

If you have any questions, ideas, concerns , please, feel free to reach me on tg @kmotiv. I’m available 24/7.


Hi Dacha, thanks for your hard work!
As for reporting on [APPROVED] @nearambassador Twitter Channel, it is worth saying that we did not make a progress report as we decided not to continue project activities. Perhaps this was not correct and it would be worth submitting the final report. If it is worth doing this, then please let me know, and I will summarize the results of our activity.


Hello & a happy new year!

We’re currently in the process of writing the report. As the website & social media works are done by 2 different people, we are waiting for all the info to add it to one report which can be delivered.


It is a rule of good manners to always report on the work done.


Week 2

Good evening everyone. I just started work with new version of Marketing DAO guild

What I want to improve-

1)Timing. It’s very important to get approval from Marketing DAO on-time, especially if you have partners, or it’s only one source of your income;
2)Feedback, another one pivotal point. Marketing DAO has internal not-recorded weekly calls. But even they will be open for public, anyway community members don’t have enough time to watching them, translate onto native language. I propose for councils, writing briefly comments on the forum… Yes, approved, because or No, because.
3)Probably, need to add new statuses for proposals [Closed] , [Delay, reason, since %date], etc. Still thinking about it.
4)Form of reports. Want to include some parts. Still thinking.

Feel free to write your proposals here or in TG @kmotiv.
How would you like to improve Marketing DAO? Thanks

Working with new proposals. Each one has been reviewed. Phone calls with guild’s members and leadership.

Thinking about implementing new tiering system in Marketing DAO


There is a lack of efficiency in the consideration of applications. Can this be improved?


Hello, @pekpytby

I believe @Dacha highlighted your concern here


Hey @AugustKinge ! Yes, I saw. I wanted to focus on this)

Let’s make NEAR better together! :wink:
