It’s tex! Let me put my thoughts onto this.
For those who are not aware…
- I participated in the kickstarting call / meeting
- I have 0 rep so far ( just really keen on the project )
- I like the idea of rewarding contributors but we have to defined what contribution means.
Frankly I’m against the idea of distributing Rep for call participation. The motivation for the call should be intrinsic. To participate in the call means that you want your voice to be heard which shows your genuine interest in the project.
I’ve seen many meetups which offers free pizza and beer. People just attend those meetups for the sake of the free food and drinks. Of course in the whole process they actually might learn something or express their view which could be very productive and beneficial but the majority will be just blank minds.
What stops me from just joining the meeting ( mute , no camera ) go out and that’s it. Free rep for doing nothing.
