DXdao Community Call Relaunch and Scheduling

Context

The DXdao Community Call was initially spun out of weekly “recap” calls to inform the community about active DXdao initiatives. Over time, this community call completely replaced the recaps by integrating its elements while having more extensive discussions held in a place where the community was most active. The success was dramatic compared to previous DXdao community efforts, often containing more than 30-40 community members weekly.

Over time, these calls entered a sort of maintenance mode. Although I firmly believe it remains DXdao’s most powerful tool to connect with the community and inform the masses of our initiatives, it wasn’t exciting enough for most not already deeply involved to participate.

In light of recent discussions on weekly call lengths and the recently passed Phase 1 of the DXdao Restructuring proposal, DXvoice is taking a step back and reevaluating its public messaging held each Thursday at 1500 UTC.

The Changes

October 27th, 2022 will NOT have a community call at the regularly scheduled 1500 UTC. This time will allow for the remaining contributors to return from Colombia, and grant some breathing room for the exploration of this topic within the community.

On November 4th, 2022, the “new and improved” DXdao Community Call will launch at 1500 UTC. This aims to tackle a few things:

  • Establish DXdao Community Calls on a Bi-Weekly cadence
  • Grant a POAP to call attendees each call
    • POAP’s to use underlying text format with generated art curated by community (See above)
  • Calls to focus more on engagement through:
    • Community voted music
    • Activities; Trivia, games, Discord Activities, etc.
    • Polls, competitions, art contests, etc.

With Community calls on a bi-weekly cadence, it leaves plenty of room for DXdaos to-launch “Operation Decentralization” to operate on its own 1 - 1.5 month timeline, utilizing the now open time to record or edit various episodes. (The launch of the inaugural episode was deferred due to a variety of conflicts, including but not limited to restructuring proposals and Devcon travels).

Hopefully, these relatively minor changes will inject much-needed structure and fun back into the community; if we can engage and communicate with our community, we will foster a far more exciting environment to create within!

As a quick update to this:

I’ve come down with an illness early this week, and won’t be around to host the launch of the new community calls. (Hoping to be at doctor around this time!)

I’ll be deferring this first call to next week, November 10th, 2022. I appreciate your understanding. :slight_smile:
