To be able to execute from within the African Sub Governance Jury, best practices borrowed from the entire Free TON Global community.

Contest submission requirements

  • Individuals from the larger Free TON community are welcome to apply for an enhanced diversity and decentralization policy in this very important endeavor.
  • An understanding of the African culture and norms will be an added advantage but not necessarily the only criteria being sought for.
  • All applicants should be active members of the Free TON community and must have signed the Declaration of Decentralization and must have an understanding of the decentralized community framework.
  • Applicants must submit a detailed resume indicating their full names, telegram ID, country of residence and any other social forum necessary to assist in verifying their identity and resume. This should include work experience, contact and reputation, and where applicable the various tasks completed within the Free TON network.
  • All applicants should be willing to put in the time and effort to study, interpret, analyze, vote, and deliver quality feedback to contest submissions from the African continent.
  • Members, who wish to apply, should be self-driven, fair, objective and be committed to promoting the African agenda in their capacity as jurors.
  • An avid adherent to deadlines and quality work is a necessity.
  • Have a basic understanding of the English language (both reading and writing), to greatly assist in comprehending the various submissions, and create trust among the applicants on responses and judgements delivered.

N.B. The Non English members within the African SG shall wait for a separate contest to be announced later when the programs in those languages are rolled out and as such should not feel left out.

Winner rights and duties

Winners will get the right to be a juror for each Free TON Africa Sub Governance contest going forward and get the same reward as each contest describes for jurors. In order to get the jury reward described in each contest, the juror must do the following:

  1. Each juror should review each contest and its requirements under “Free TON Africa Sub Governance”.

  2. The juror should review each contestant’s submission (uploaded in .PDF format) and determine if each submission is within the scope of his or her understanding to judge it, and then vote as follows:

  3. If outside of juror competence, the juror should vote to “Abstain”.

  4. If within juror competence, the juror should vote on a scale of 1-to-10 with 1 representing least and 10 representing most qualified submissions.

  5. If the submission is inappropriate, the PDF file is not opening or corrupt, etc., the juror should vote to “Reject”.

  6. The juror should provide constructive feedback in the appropriate field describing the reason for their score.

  7. To reject the submission, only 50% +1 votes from those members of the jury who actually voted for this submission work are enough.

  8. The jury rewards will be distributed in proportion to the number of votes cast by each jury member.

  9. A judge has the right to vote in contests in which he/she participates, but he is not allowed to vote for their own submission. Self-vote will not be counted.

  10. Jury members who have not voted for 2 months are automatically expelled from the Jury bench without notice.

As any civic duty dictates, every juror must remain objective to the best of his/her abilities in regard to voting, i.e., stick to the facts and the facts only, putting aside any personal feelings.

Voting for new jury

  1. Each of the current initial members of Africa Sub Governance can vote for any submission (candidacy) to become an Africa Juror.
  2. Each juror will vote by rating each submission on a scale of 1 to 10 or can choose to reject it if it does not meet the requirements, or they can choose to abstain from voting.
  3. Jurors will provide feedback for every submission.
  4. In order for a qualifying candidate to become a member of the African Sub Governance Jury, a submission must receive 50% +1 votes from those African Jury initial members who actually voted for that submission, and the top 7 highest scorers will be admitted as jury.
  5. The Free TON Africa Sub Governance initial members that form the original Free TON Africa Jury will retain their Africa Jury membership after this contest ends. All the rights and duties of the Africa Jury specified in this contest apply to them.

Procedural remarks

  • Participants must correctly upload their application to the contest (in PDF format) in order for the jury to view it. If the application is not available or does not meet the described criteria, the candidate will be rejected by the jury.
  • Participants must submit their work before the end of the contest. If the application is submitted late, it will not be accepted.
  • A basic knowledge of the African Continent will be an added bonus but not a must.
  • All submissions must contain the contestant’s contact information, including a Telegram username, by which jurors can verify that the submission belongs to the individual who submitted it. If not, your submission will be rejected.
  • If your submission has links to the work performed, the content of those links must have the contestant’s contact details and Telegram username, so jurors can match it and verify who the work belongs to. If not, your submission will be rejected.
  • Contestants must provide valid Free TON wallet addresses where they will receive their reward in case of appointment. Make sure that you keep your seed phrase and private keys from your wallet in a safe place.
  • Every participant can submit only one submission. Unnecessary submissions will be rejected.

You need to attract more participants to the SG, who are geographically located and live on the African content.
Focus on this.

Thanks for your suggestion. Diversity will be observed but not at the expense of quality.
Subsequently, that will be observed here and further in the SG management as per our second proposal posted in the forum concurrently.

Thanks.

That’s the reason for the African sub governance in the first place and that is what we will focus on.

@Artanovskaya do you really think that you should be an african sg jury?
i don’t think so

I’m not a leading resident of Africa, but as a strengthening of the decentralization policy, I am ready to participate in the selection

I live in Egypt, Egypt is a large part of the African continent. And I understand very well the mentality of these particular residents and the specifics of this region. There is a lot of Muslim population on the African continent, this cannot be ignored, I understand very well how to work with this category of population!
