Draft 1 Moderation Renewal July 2022 - Dec 2022
Jun 21, 2022

2022 July-Dec Moderation
Workstream Renewal
Summary
The Community Moderation Workstream is primarily responsible to support the
community and to maintain the integrity of all ShapeShift various platforms such as
Discord, The Forum, Boardroom and Notion. Future platforms that the community
chooses to implement may also be included. This workstream is used daily to ensure
the smooth operation of the ShapeShift DAO.
This proposal is to renew the Moderation Workstream, re-elect Giantkin as leader and
fund the workstream through the end of December 2022.
Abstract
Moderation supports all workstreams and all users within each of the platforms it
moderates. As we bring more members into the various platforms, moderators act as so
much more than bot managers and spam blockers. Not only do the moderators set up
the verification process, they are the point of contact for members having issues with
the verification process. They function as the greeters of the DAO, if you will. Our team
of moderators clears the path for new members, new contributors and new supporters
by facilitating a fluid user experience. Enthusiastic about all things defi and crypto,
empowering community members, new and old alike, on their journey to selfempowered entrepreneurism.
Motivation
The mission of this workstream is simple: to help people. Moderation is the workstream
you never knew you needed, but couldn’t live without. From welcoming new users to
setting up Zoom calls to managing bots. Moderation is here to support the community.
This workstream strives to create a space that fosters security, growth and innovation.
Our team of trustworthy, confident and enthusiastic moderators allows for
decentralization of community moderation. This may address the point of preventing
accusations of vested interest, since only community elected mods have the power to
preserve and maintain the DAO culture.
2022 July-Dec Moderation Workstream Renewal 2
As the workstream leader, I want to make the user feel like they are able to relax. Users
are most likely talking from their home space, home usually means they feel safe. I want
to keep that feeling in our group.
Specification
Moderators take on wide variety of tasks, including but not limited to:
Organize user flow via roles, channels and bots
Create and maintain scheduled events in sesh & Discord
Provide protection from scammers
Warn abusers (strike system established by Giantkin)
Providing Discord support
Facilitating ‘temps’ for a job, for example, providing the DJ with a role for the event
Help maintain and update server images such as avatars, stickers, emojis, etc.
(graymachine)
Provide moderation support (live when possible) for meetings and community
events
Drive users to the proper channels
Continually monitoring channels, and other server banlists for potential
spam/scammers and adding them into our banlist
Taking part in Support/Ops triage process by shuttling members requesting support
to the proper channels, connecting with self help resources, #support, Zendesk, etc
as appropriate
Appropriate use of Admin Switch by Community Moderation Workstream Leader
What are the goals of this workstream? What metrics can this workstream’s
success be measured against?
Provide 12 hour moderation coverage to ShapeShift DAO’s community channels,
with the eventual goal to provide 24 hour coverage
—I like to Under Promise, and Over Deliver. I think i can stand by my actions so far to date.
Proactively ban 90% of scammers/bots that try to sneak into ShapeShift discord
2022 July-Dec Moderation Workstream Renewal 3
Ensure that all community meetings are scheduled on the calendar
The Moderation Workstream is successful when you don’t notice that it’s there.
During the Jan - June 2022 term, the Moderation Workstream has accomplished the
following:
Stopped 21 raids (at the time of this posting)
Banned 922+ bots (at the time of this posting)
Assisted with Education with a new user flow
Sustainability updates to server roles and channels
Updates to Role Selector
Created embeds to improve readability
Benefits
Keeps the discord clear of spammers
Limits the Scammers on server
Drawbacks
Growing member list, growing expense.

ok, after alot of back and forth etc. (and reassuring conversations) im thinking -
‘current’ is a hair lower that Previous really. ( previous was 11700 for a month or 2, then dropped a bit each month, and then 10600/month for the last 3(?) months.) thats the target number. I am thinking i hit that number, and push for Locked fox as bonus’ for both Pzy/shadow.
So $11000 total. $5k GK, $3.5k Pzy, $1.5k Shadow. $100 Bot (50/50 current/future) , $500 locked for Pzy. $400 locked for Shadow. (lock time tbd? 6-12months?)
(above is given in USDC. however, any choice available for Fox payout, is not considered. I plan on 50% for this entire Term. (i should be ok to do that (opolis))

I will say I am happy to do whatever for the DAO.
I’ve gained great friends and relationships while getting compensated for making everybody’s lives easier when it comes to Our home-base of Discord. I may not always speak, but I’m usually always around! 🙂
If it means more of a FOX/boosted percentage I am 100% okay with that! Lets keep this DAO rolling.

To be honest/blunt… i realy want to push for pzy to get more. he’s doing alot. and making it so i dont have to be on as much. and shadow is our coverage for both us (and some of the weird hours) If i could push up a bit, i would gladly up pzy’s number first and foremost. I just dont know how, with everyone cutting.

happy to take some responsibility off gk and pzy, I think gk would like some feedback on best option even though we are a small portion of overall DAO we don’t love the idea of raising wages when everyone else is cutting back (hence getting paid in fox is ideal). maybe meeting somewhere in the middle?

yes. lowering my overall number, but wanting to … give them something extra. instead of a usdc raise. if we lock it up for x time etc. as 0xean said, lets them put some skin in the game. (oownership, and voting rights eventually) Trying to clarify. $500 Fox locked for x time for each. (totally seperate from if they choose their own boost amounts. its just a bonus.
and i take 50% in the locked fox of my number)
*not sure im explaining this right.

thanks for this. I certainly support your workstream. There is so much conversation to need to read through here to get at what you are actually asking. Your final request would be $9600 USDC per month and $1000 worth of FOX (then boosted) per month?

ok. looks like the first (unclear) poll was split on higher fund, and same amount. so i will aim for the same amount. its kinda what i was thinking, but was hoping for more. Taking Oxceans thought and running with it a bit… Skipping poll. How does this sound then?

$10600 (in usdc) $5k gk, 3k Pzy, and $1.5k Shadow , plus $500 boosted Fox for each Pzy and shadow. and the 50/50 bot funds.

(i plan on doing 50% in boost)
Pzy and shadow can choose to take some more of their USDC in Fox (and/or boost)

I think that puts me lower. at $9600 Plus $1000 in Boosted locked fox.
