CR Council Feedback
After speaking with community members who have gone through the suggestion/proposal process and other active community members, it has become evident many are not happy with how the CR Council is working.
We need the CR Council to be more visible to the community; as of now, there is virtually no interaction with them.
We need a proper communication protocol with the Council. If community members don’t have their email addresses, there’s no way to reach out to them or convey a message to them. The Council can cooperate with the Community Manager for this.
The community needs a better understanding what kind of suggestions the Council is willing to fund and why certain decisions are being made.
The Council should give regular updates to the community through its own section in the CR Weekly Report and explain its decisions in detail.
The general perception in the community is that the Council is not willing to spend money and that a lot more could be achieved if they were. Good opportunities are being missed because of funding restrictions.
The process from suggestion to proposal to funding approval is too slow and is often delayed due to unclear communication.
Council members have failed to vote on proposals on several occasions. This is unacceptable.
The Elastos Foundation’s Western team supports these views and wants to express that we need the CR Council to be more active and dedicate more funds to growing the Elastos ecosystem. We are in a crucial phase of project development, and we cannot afford to fall further behind other projects that are rapidly and aggressively expanding their communities and ecosystems.
