Free TON

Proposal: W&D reforming

The amount of tokens (0, some, all) on the new multisig is the subject of discussion. It depends on the understanding of the updated WD Team of closest steps and contests.

I hope to see comments of all the involved people in a fast and furious discussion of the future of the subgov.

as i’ve already stated in the voting in chat, I am in favor of returning all crystals to the giver, but can totally understand Michael’s idea behind leaving some for the next contest that the reformed jury may hold.

Below is the original roadmap from the proposal of creating W&D(Free TON Web & Design Sub-Governance - #16 by Riemann) . I suggest to remove a few contests from it and then take it as a core for the reformed subgovernence.
Which contests we may consider to remove from the list:

  1. 1 or 2 of Infographic videos contests, as there was already held explainer video contest
  2. 1 (out of 2, not totally) Infographics and schemes contests, as we had Greetings cards contests, which cuts into these costs
  3. Merchandise design could be cut down in the cost a bit.
    These are just suggestions, but we have to consider the budget that was already spent.
# Contest name Expense Num of contests Motivation
1 Website Features 100 000 2 To develop and support the necessary features of the current freeton.org website
2 UI/UX Standard Elements 100 000 1 To create identity concepts to implement user experience to the web and mobile applications
3 Illustrations Kit 100 000 4 To provide concepts and sketch books for enhancing visual communication on the web, mobile and blogging materials
4 Mobile UI Kit 200 000 1 To create a UI/UX kit for the mobile application for the reference of the mobile developers of all the TON mobile applications
5 Web UI Kit 150 000 1 To create a kit for web applications elements to implement user experience to all the TON web applications
6 New Landing Page 50 000 5 To create additional landing pages for the the product website submenus (e.g. FAQ, Features) for general and marketing purposes.
7 Logo Brandbook 100 000 1 To design a logo for different purposes
8 Media Vault 100 000 1 To create a media vault (catalogue) with all the available graphic materials in the ‘source’ formats on the kit.freeton.org . The source language is English
9 Presentation Templates 100 000 1 To create a set of templates for presentations in Powerpoint, Keynote, InDesign, Word, etc.
10 2D / 3D Graphics Design Elements 50 000 3 To create various graphic elements to be used on web, mobile, presentations, video, SMM
11 Static Infographics and Schemes 150 000 2 To create static infographics for SMM and general marketing
12 Infographic Videos 150 000 4 To create infographic videos for SMM and general marketing
13 Merchandise Design 100 000 1 To create design templates for the Free TON merchandise: T-shirts, hoodies, hats, casual wear, etc.

Contest that I would consider as a priority one should be one that is related to the design kit. Imo it’s really important to have ready made elements and style solutions in figma for developers to make use of it, so they can focus on building useful tools instead of thinking how should this or that button look like.

In the end all of the Kit (UI, illustrations, mobile, infographics, etc.) contests winning works should be united into one Free TON design kit, where you would see different pages with:
Styles (logos, colors, typography, etc.)
Components (text fields, buttons, etc.)
Illustrations
Presentation templates
Links/showcase to alternative variants of the kits (which should be left after contests).

Цели обозначить нужно, более предметно а не в целом и общими мазками

I do not support this idea. Unclear further plans((( Need reforming, then we can request next round of tokens

Не могу поддержать эту инициативу, нет четких планов( Проще продумать все, в том числе на коллеже и запросить следующий транш токенов после реформы

Agree, this proposal more productive than previous one. At least first steps are defined. All funds must be returned.

Hello. Good proposal. It is imperative to follow the stated goals (Free TON Web & Design Sub-Governance - #16 by Riemann). Describe the terms of reference. It is necessary to create contests as needed

There is already a vote on the refund.

I would move media vault (or contests catalog) on top of the list.

Having contests is good, not having the results of them - is bad both for history, promotional purposes and actual usage of the created materials.

I support the idea, but I think we should first get the tokens back into the giver, do the internal work on a plan, and then request the tokens for implementation.
On the technical implementation side, I’m not sure what the best to do first. I think we should have a call this week to discuss the latest proposals and coordinate on further actions.

we should do some reforms within existing WD SG since we can’t ignore the importance of right time for user growth of Free TON.
Starting from scratch will not be better for Free TON community because there may be loss of precious time for developments considering blockchain development pace all around the world.

I don’t see KPI’s and needs for each of the contests proposed. And the amount of rewards should be in par with what the community will recieve

I don’t agree with this proposal. Technically, it’s almost the same as before and a few elements have been changed. This Sub-governance needs a full restart. Not just some minor changes.

User-Interface is the main revolution and requirements for Free TON adoption so we should think about the capabilities of Free Network Blockchain and invention logics for its happening.
Why we aren’t staking on Free TON Users rather than community givers❓

Let the users come in with their demanded-services for their betterment and check the potential of Free Network invention after the Free Software

My Opinion cum Proposal
We can invent logic of KPI and their performance based on their proof of work credentials by creating a Interface For User-Adoption.

I am against this proposal. It does not change the essence of the current state of affairs. I propose to wait and find candidates among the new members of the community.

I support the proposal.

Dear Mikhail Kabanov!

Everyone saw these screenshots from telegrams, how you and your accomplices sarcastically corresponded in the hope that you would milk this cow (Free TON). That you want to deceive everyone by about three million tokens. No subcontrol or reform for you. Get out of here, please. You’ve already hurt the project very badly.
You have already shown your deceitful self.
And those who write in this thread, approving his proposals - you run the risk of ruining your reputation. If I were you, I would not have anything to do with him. Because this is a rotten person (this is not an insult - this is a fact) with rotten intentions. And this person ruined the reputation of our beloved crypto project. Because of you, now on every corner and on every board, users write that Free TON is a corrupt and bad project. Michael, this is your handiwork.
And Michael, return the tokens that you “won” in the New Year’s card contest. Because your job is not a Christmas card, but a complete trash.
Thanks for attention.
P.s.
In general, you gave a “good PR” to the project. Where should write a review for your business? :smiley:
