AIP-282: Information Request - Role of Special Council

Special Council geographic location? Has this ever come up?

If they are all or mostly located in the US could the DAO be deemed to be a US resident entity? Are there any concerns about Economic Substance requirements?

Agree on both points @bigbull. I’m sure they’ve considered location, but it’s important to understand all the requirements to serve as well. Thank you,

+1 on supporting this idea. In considering how to vote this year, I’ve had to check myself a few times on my expectations vs. the role. I think clarifying the role and our expectations of council is welcome.

Hi @badteeth,

Your topic will be moving to the AIP Draft phase in less than 24 hours. Are you content with the feedback received or do you wish to extend community discussion for another 7 days?

If we do not hear from you within 48 hours after your topic closes, your topic will be moved straight to the AIP Draft process.

We look forward to hearing from you.

This is good start, it really should have been before the SC election process. I don’t agree to all the points mentioned but it starts the process and can be refined with feedback from the community and also with contributions from candidates who are running now for SC.

Misalignment of expectations can be a big drain of energy and not productive, this goes both ways btw (also expectations of the DAO community members).

Below is all the AIP is asking to do, is there something you’d do differently here?

Thanks,

Ready, let’s go! Thanks,

timing is key point.

I suggest the remaining 5 candidates outline their view on this BEFORE we vote in round 2 of the voting.

I fully support this proposal to establish a clear understanding of the current responsibilities of the special souncil. Transparency is one of our guiding values, and this proposal aligns with that principle.

Not just responsibilities. Clarity on risks and who would bear the costs… SC has paid-for legal protection, and possibly insurance.

And transparency - at least an outline - on what is actually done day-to-day vs. responsibilities and expectations.

That should’ve been the minimum all along. We can start with this initiative, but it isn’t close to what’s required to alleviate the confusion and consternation over the role, or to gauge what it should be monetarily valued at.

Hi @br00no,

All important things to understand, but the goal of this AIP is just to get a baseline understanding of the role. This will help guide the next round of community discussion around the SC role and its place in the DAO’s governance process. Thank you,

Thanks, BT. Understood & supported!

Just don’t want ppl to think this is close to satisfactory for transparency or valuing the role, same as posting a few wallet addresses or transactions isn’t even the start of fiscal transparency.

Without true transparency, the DAO will never gain public support of well-known, quality champions outside of Web3… and it may be telling that Yat & Alexis left.

That’s the feedback I get at every attempt, and I can’t disagree, assuage or disprove the litany of serious concerns, questions, disbelief and snark I get from such ppl.
