There was some interest in this topic in the telegram, so I’m writing up a forum topic for it.
I’ve written a blog post called Group Thoughts on this topic. It covers an idea called a social network stack that might be used to develop and execute specific proposals in a decentralized way by taking advantage of the upvote-style systems that have already proven to work well in online communities, rather than depending on any form of strict consensus or all-or-nothing yes-no proposals. Hopefully the blog can make the idea clear!
Last year, I also made a very poorly coded web app version of an example first layer: Delfy. It’s a suggestion social network – each participant can spend a few minutes putting in their best 3 ideas by making new ideas, editing others’, or voting for others and the system will sort the best ones to the top in a simple but pretty powerful way. A management team could use this to get a better sense of what their community needs, since it saves time distilling community comments and makes participation very simple for community members. It’s a way for ideas to realistically filter bottom-up instead of top-down in a large community.
I’d love to see others’ ideas, and I hope this sparks some discussion!
