Free TON Blog Contest results evaluation Proposal

Proposal: Free TON Blog Contest results evaluation

This document suggests applying the special procedure of The Free TON Blog Contest results evaluation. The process should include an additional step of removing votes made by several jury members due to their participation in the Blog Contest.

The Issue

The Free TON Blog Contest held by SMM Sub Governance has just finished (see the proposal PDF).

The Proposal has the following text:

Jurors will vote for your submission. Jurors whose team(s) intend to participate in this contest by providing submissions of their own lose their right to vote in this contest.

There is a proven fact that 3 (https://t.me/tugt45, https://t.me/senya_dz, https://t.me/kekerya) of 7 initial members (see the sheet with public keys and addresses) belong to one team what is clearly stated in the following messages in the open chat of SMM Subgovernance:

In this dialogue, initial member Ivan Kotelnikov asks about the affiliation of Senya Dumbadze, Ekaterina, and Alexander - whether they are one team or not.

The answers by Senya Dumbadze and Alexander are affirmative: “Yes, we are”.

As result, https://t.me/senya_dz (wallet 0:28f...f49), https://t.me/kekerya (wallet 0:ad3...8cd) and https://t.me/tugt45 (wallet 0:b9e...c14) could not vote for any submissions in the blog contest as Submission #2 was uploaded by https://t.me/tugt45 and developed by this team.

Proposal Specification

Based on this open data it is proposed to remove the votes of 3 members of the SMM Sub Governance Jury mentioned below from the Free TON Blog Contest scoring process.

Number of points per submission without the votes of jury members, violated the Contest Voting Procedure:

Conclusion (Governance Best Practice)

This serious precedent clearly states that the activity of any Sub Governance within Free TON is advised to be started with a Jury Contest to ensure that further activity will be made in a decentralized fashion and all possible interest group’s opinions will be taken into account.

Additionally, all jury members are advised to announce their affiliation with each other and any third parties or companies and abstain from voting in Contests which their affiliates participate in. In other cases, the whole model of decentralized governance turns into upvoting your own works and downvoting the works of others. As a result, the community doesn’t choose, all the decisions are made by third parties in full accordance with their personal interests.

This is very troublesome news. Thank you for bringing it to everyone’s attention, but I would like to hear an explanation from the 3 members. Let’s hear both sides. But if confirmed, I 100% support this proposal.

I’d like to suggest a public call. Where we will cancel all previous contests because their terms weren’t completed.

We will be happy to hear your point on the matter on the forum in this thread.

The accepted proposal has certain rules of voting which have been violated. It’s pretty simple.

I have already suggested a very simple and instructive solution. Distribute prizes for the first place among all participants of the competition who passed the requirements of the technical task. This is not difficult, and it will be a “moral compensation” for all participants.

And what is changing globally? For colluding with the judges, will he get top 10 prizes? This will not be a lesson.

Я требую пересмотреть оценки, так как в обсуждение конкурса было указано что можно публиковать материалы с медиума

Fact is fact, and this is very sad for the community, I would like the rest of the community to decide how to fix the situation, in addition to excluding estimates.

You can’t argue with the fact. But the nullification of the results? Nothing that people really tried and spent 2 weeks of their free time of life to participate in the contest?

To be honest, for the first time I was happy with the result achieved in the contest, because I really made an effort. Draw conclusions for the future, apply measures directly to people, not to the results of the competition.

But thanks to this experience, I have some interesting ideas about competitions and the distribution of awards, and I will describe them later in a separate topic.


С фактом не поспоришь. Но обнуление результатов? Ничего что люди реально старались и потратили 2 недели своего свободного времени жизни на участие в конкурсе?

Скажу честно, впервые я обрадовался достигнутому результату в конкурсе, потому что реально приложил усилия. Делайте выводы на будущее, применяйте меры непосредственно к людям, а не к результатам конкурса.

Но благодаря этому опыту у меня появились интересные мысли по поводу конкурсов и распределения наград, позже изложу их в отдельной теме.

И где гарантии что именно это предложение об обнулении 3 судей не является чьим то закулисным интересом? Человеческий фактор сложен. Изначально надо менять подход к делу. Позже опишу своё видение на этот счет.


And where is the guarantee that this particular proposal to reset 3 judges is not someone’s behind-the-scenes interest? The human factor is complex. Initially you need to change your approach to business. Later I will describe my vision on this matter.

Завтра вроде как должен быть стрим , там услышим все мнения

Мнение это хорошо, лишь бы это не было показательным выступлением на публику. И мы не наблюдали конфликт интересов двух групп людей. Еще раз повторю, изначальный подход к делу надо менять. Начиная с принятия технического задания и способа распределения призовых чисел. Например учитывать людей принявших активное участие и прошедших все требования, призовой фонд на активных участников. Например среди 10 мест, на 10м и 11м месте могут быть равные работы с разницей в 0.1 но кто-то получит компенсацию времени, а кто то получит чупа-чупс. Время жизни бесценно, и оно не восполняется.


The opinion is good, if only it was not a showcase to the public. And we have not observed a conflict of interests between two groups of people. I repeat once again, the initial approach to business must be changed. starting with the acceptance of the terms of reference and the method of distributing the prize numbers. For example, take into account people who took an active part and passed all the requirements, the prize fund for active participants. for example, among the 10 places on the 10th and 11th place there may be equal jobs with a difference of 0.1, but someone will receive time compensation, and someone will receive a lollipop. Life time is priceless and not replenished.

What do you mean by nullification of the results?

Proposal Specification

Based on this open data it is proposed to remove the votes of 3 members of the SMM Sub Governance Jury mentioned below from the Free TON Blog Contest scoring process.

0x7ee520d94a4df7cda9d8e4a8354c0787decd1bd7837f1bb4412959881e2e312f

Against this background, at least 3 beneficiaries of such a decision appear. Before that there was 1, and after this decision as many as 3. Sub 4, Sub 11, Sub 15. Therefore, it gives absolutely no guarantees of behind-the-scenes interest.

Again - what nullification of the results you were talking about?

The procedure of voting is fixed in the accepted proposal. Period.

About this.

The picture that appears after that draws those who benefit from it.

Примерно 7 работ соотвествовали критериям необходимым для участия в конкурсе, на момент завершения подачи заявок

Предлагаю весь призовой фонд распределит между всеми участниками
