I want to thank those who have responded to my original post. As I’ve mentioned elsewhere and I will once again here: I have given up on Discord and use it as sparingly as I can. That platform is not one bit friendly in trying to have a conversation about a particular issue. I’m actually befuddled that bDAO continues to funnel possible new bDAO members towards it.
Maybe it’s an age thing, maybe it is just me. Regardless, I find it challenging and my current use of it indicates what I think of it!
To @brianl, as @links hits on in their followup post below yours, the word “operations” is quite encompassing, not just to myself, but to many. I readily admit that I did not and still likely do not have a full comprehension as to what the Ops department fully does. The issues that I highlighted in my original post, to myself, are things that a typical operations department would deal with in the real world. My bad for assuming similar was happening within bDAO. As you allude to in your post, bDAO is huge, too huge for just a few to catch all of these issues that do arise and likely will continue to do so.
Although the heading “Operations Department” is not entirely wrong in what the current Operations Department actually does, it is quite evident that the title is not entirely accurate neither.
May I suggest a name change to the BDCD? The bDAO “Coordination Department” From the outside this may be more accurate and better reflect what the “Operations Department” is currently involved with.
Tagging @Trewkat here to touch on something they mentioned in a different topic: You’re likely 100% correct in that my post would have been better served had it been posted in the bDAO Ops Discord. I have made my thoughts known on the use of Discord above and elsewhere. That platform is not friendly to all - myself especially.
Further, and why I am tagging @Icedcool @AboveAverageJoe @0x_Lucas & @paulapivat here now: We as a DAO want to promote use of both Discord and the forums here. Yet there are many who only use Discord, but do not use the forums here, and vice versa for others here at the forums, such as myself.
This is in and of itself an issue that needs to be addressed. I know that there has been chatter about the use of other platforms beyond Discord, but we never seem to get anywhere on that front. Regardless, even if we move on from Discord, we still have two different platforms, one for the refining and voting of proposals and another chat based platform for general use.
And we still haven’t touched on the lack of votes over on the third bDAO platform: Snapshot.
The picture is like this: We’re at an organized barbeque with several hundred bDAO folk. Yes there’s an overarching reason why we are all here at the event. But, we don’t end up interacting with one another because some don’t like smoked chicken, so they stay near the barbie that has kebabs. While those that like the side dishes stay near those tables to get away from the smoke of the charcoal that they so distaste.
We’re all here together for mostly the same reason, yet we’re all so very far apart from one another because there’s too much that seperates us.
Cheers all, keep up the great work, I know we’re all doing our best to try and figure this out
