This is extremely serious and I’d advise you to raise it with NF staff, especially (but certainly not only) if it’s happening on official NEAR platforms.
As a council member of the Marketing DAO I would like to share my thoughts on this matter:
At the weekly DAO zoom meeting this week I was pleased to see ALL the council members were present at the start of the call.
For the record, this was the FIRST time that everyone was involved, and the first time @Dacha was present since he joined the council.
As I have participated in every weekly meeting since I joined the council last August, I was understandably keen to meet @Dacha as the newest addition to the team.
One by one each council member joined the meeting… it was great to see a full house .
There followed a sureal moment where @Dacha - the tireless campaigner for transparency and accountability in the community - presented himself as a shadowy figure, seemingly incapable of understanding the basic request to show his face… even just for a moment.
After a long pause @Dacha exited the meeting without the explanation, and the rest of the council then continued with business.
I fully understand that certain individuals within the NEAR community need to maintain their pseudo anonymity for various reasons.
However, if you maintain a vocal, high profile presence within the community and then ask to join a key DAO that is disbursing large amounts of funds, then IMO it is important that the community also has a way to see and hear you. This is a simple way of demonstrating personal transparency and building trust in the community.
In the past @Dacha has also requested, on more than one occasion, that the weekly DAO council meeting is recorded and made available to the community. I have no problems with this proposal… and would hope that @Dacha would see the disconnect between the need for greater transparency of DAO activities and decision making, and his own response to a simple request to show his face.
I notice that in the comments above it was suggested that a ‘real photo’ would make an adaquate substitution for live video. Maybe I am too old school, but this is not what I consider to be 'full participation. Facial expression is an important part of communication.
I agree with the suggestion that each DAO should be free to decide on their policy for participating in council meetings. @Dacha please feel free to make a proposal and all the Marketing DAO council members can vote.
KYC is a useful tool for ensuring that funds are disbursed in a transparent manner. But a DAO is not just a funding structure… it is also a community of individuals who share ideas and opinions. You can KYC me as many times as you like but that doesn’t mean that you really know who I am!
Transparency and personal information are two different things my fiend. I work with wallets and have no idea who stands for them.
Yes, it’s the reason why I’m asking reports from grantees. My friends form Near Community knows who I’m.
Mentioned in our group.
Hi guys, i want to support Dacha.
I think he is only one person on forum , probably on NEAR who working for free. Who can do same for NEAR?
Who are really can take care same for ecosystem NEAR?
Long time everybody know him.
I think for this person or for this type of people in NEAR (who can do free work and who enough long time in community we can do some exeptions)
I think just he want to give to all of us equal same ability to start realise your ideas with NEAR.
Its main thing, cause i want support him
I would strongly encourage you to start a new post if you feel so strongly about the issue (and before demanding others do so). This is not the first time you add a comment on your own personal thread where you openly attack other Council members. It was unacceptable then and it is unacceptable now.
I believ e Grace point is quite simple - we need to have trust among Council members. You were not asked to reveal your identity to the entire world. You were asked basic common courtesy. If you can’t trust us with your real identity, why should we trust you with unbiased decision making and why should the community at large trust you with large sums of money.
I will also add that it was Grace who advocated for you to be added to the Marketing DAO. Vote would’ve failed otherwise. I believe we have been, and we can continue to improve working relations.
I truly hope we can spend less time arguing internally and can agree on some basic procedural steps to build TRUST. Relationship building is fundamental.
Good evening. It was my first proposal
I’m sorry, I couldn’t find any “attacks” posts and sentences. Just regular discussion.
It’s not about arguing, not actually problem for me, it’s more about new rules which going to be spread on all community members and DAO’s where NF people are present. Like your urgent proposal to all Community members.
Great point. Marketing DAO approved large sums of money to grantees without any video calls. Furthermore, some contributors didn’t provide their reports. I believe it’s most important question.
Thank You for your comment and have a great day!
1.Because we got a new payouts procedure , I proposed better (faster and comfortable) process for Marketing DAO grantees. Gonna include it in new Marketing DAO guide after approval from @marketingdao-council

Have a great week.
Please I wish to be cleared about something, is the role of writing this weekly report solely for @Dacha.
There is no obligation, as it stands, for any Council members to write a weekly report. Dacha does this on his own accord, it’s valuable, no doubt, but it’s not required.
