I am continuing my position as a part time contributor within the ContributorX Squad. 100% of my time will be to the ContributorX Squad. My daily tasks and contributions stay consistent, with new additions and/or changes as the periods go on. Details are as follows:


  • DXdao Proposals

    • Tracking history, updating, alert messaging, aiding new contributors in the creation/posting process
  • DXD and REP

    • 2022 tracking sheets
    • Personalized tracking sheets per contributor upon request
    • Amendments still need to be made to the old proposal regarding 2020/2021 DXD numbers
  • Infinite Hackathon

    • Application google form
    • Application sheet
    • Email confirmations (acceptance, travel grants, etc.)
  • ContributorX announcements and reminders

    • Recently started working on updating the proposal process – the first post of a series of posts was put up by Melanie a few weeks back, the next posts are in the works!

Previous Little Bits

Self Reflection from Previous Period

This past period has been an incredibly reflective period that has opened up a lot of new important conversations. It has led Melanie and I towards discussions of changes that need to be made regarding the processes within ContributorX and how we advise, guide, and provide for DXdao’s contributors. We are constantly discussing what we could do better as individuals who operate for the people, and what processes we can make easier and more efficient.

Recently, we have been discussing some changes to contributor guidelines, specifically the proposal process, in which the first post can be found here . The next post within this series is set to be up within the next week or so – we are really hoping to get a lot of feedback on this next post in order to get the best feel for what our peers want. We have also been discussing mediation processes in the sense of ‘What can we do to promote communication between our contributors? What can we do to encourage the use of internal squad review processes? What can we do, as moderators of contributor experience, to mediate and aid these conversations which at times will be difficult?’ and so forth.

I am trying to use my knowledge of counselling to find more innovative and personal ways to adapt traditional human resources to better fit our dao. Of course, it is a misstep on my part that some of these processes were not introduced/corrected sooner – however, I think it is important to think about what we can improve going forward, and how I can be more proactive rather than reactive. A goal of mine for this next period is to continue to build my relationships and rapport with my fellow contributors in order to create a better environment of trust and understanding. I wish for everyone to receive and feel the full value of having a contributor experience squad as part of their dao :slight_smile:

Self Reflection

Looking back at my last reflection, I feel good progress has been made towards creating a more comfortable and healthy community for contributors. There is still a lot of work to be done, but the discussions have been flowing and changes are being made. I am very excited to see what the new year brings with the new structure going into place – I want everyone to know that I will still be available for anything you may need during these changes; it is still my duty to aid in the proposal process and tracking! We are still working on mediation processes; nothing has been set in stone yet here. However, the second Contributor Review will be next week, and I have added some new questions to gauge how contributors have been feeling lately. I am hoping that these questions will give Mel and I a better understanding of how everyone has been doing lately and will give us a step towards being proactive in regards to contributor health and morale.

Although I was not able to attend Devcon or the retreat this year (sad), I was very happy that I was able to aid Melanie and Augusto as much as I could from my desk with organizing and planning events, sending emails, helping out our Travel Grant winners in the hackerhouses, etc. Lots of DXD tracking has been done the past few weeks – everyone should have received their personalized sheets by now – a post on this should be up this week or next. My main goal going forward is continuing to raise contributor morale and create conditions in which everyone feels comfortable and productive.
