    Following discussions between Anton and Niels in fct market channel, an update would clarify the situation. Do you intend to publish this work as soon as possible or are you waiting for the DID integration grant to be completed too?

    ANO Election and Demotion System - Amendment proposal

    In this proposal, criteria are defined in advance to overpass the cap on the slots, then they are more transparent making it easier for new candidates to onboard (they know what they need to achieve). And last but not least it enables the system to be automated and then to have constant election...

    ANO Election and Demotion System - Amendment proposal

    Such an automated system is possible to implement. What are we saying here? - we want to elect the best ANOs candidates - we want to preserve the grant pool - we want to be able to keep slots open whatever the price is in case a massive opportunity (a famous organization) submit its candidacy...

    ANO Election and Demotion System - Amendment proposal

    That's correct. It's a discussion about what criteria should be used to move the number of available slots in an automated way if possible. Following Miguel post, there are certainly other parameters than price to consider: efficiency, reputation of the candidate/pledges... I need to think a...

    ANO Election and Demotion System - Amendment proposal

    I have started my thread with this statement. So of course no automated demotion. As Alex said, if we go for a pool size lower than the current number of ANOs in operation then it does not change anything except when next demotion occurred. The spot is then not filled again. Does this...

    Ratification Doc 005 - ANO Election and Demotion System

    At the very beginning of M3, the exact scope of the Guide role was not defined. Again the principles was there sure. Time after time, the Guide role has been defined by the Standing Parties. That is all I wanted to say. You should not Niels, really not. I am well aware of the time you dedicate...

    ANO Election and Demotion System - Amendment proposal

    Yes Guides have a management/coordination role. These principles do not define by themselves the mecanics to apply this coordinnation role such how much standing, what decision can they precisely take... and this is what we are discussing and definings through all our governance discussions. I...

    Ratification Doc 005 - ANO Election and Demotion System

    To be a bit provocative : so because the governance say so it is enough to trust any future action of the Guides? ;) Just to make things clear and not to interprete things a posteriori. The Guide role was initially not 100% defined precisely (particularly the type of power). It was initially...

    Ratification Doc 005 - ANO Election and Demotion System

    Imo allowing Guides to decrease this number should go along with strong safeguards such as defining a minimum number of ANOs required in the pool (to ensure decentralisation of the protocol) or even better a clear process to define the slot target.

    ANO Election and Demotion System - Amendment proposal

    Thanks Alex for starting the discussion! I think I may not have expressed myself well enough. That is my proposal. The MIN and MAX are just the general bounds, whatever the price is. We need to have general bounds. The question is: what minimum value is needed to be decentralised enough? I...

    ANO Election and Demotion System - Amendment proposal

    Following a brief discussion with David (see quote below), I am opening this new thread. CONTEXT: Doc 005 defining the ANO Election and Removal process is a massive step forward in our governance processes. As stated several times by the co-sponsors, it is a first iteration and improvement of...

    Ratification Doc 005 - ANO Election and Demotion System

    I agree with you. Some complements on this : While till now the Guides have been in the position to expand the standing parties, this new document give them the ability (explicitly) to decrease the number of ANOs required (after some are removed); (EDIT: I have read again the doc and I am wrong...

    Ratification Doc 005 - ANO Election and Demotion System

    I first would like to say sorry for not joining the discussion before. This is maybe the most important move for our protocol from M3. Thank you for working on this document. It is really an important step forward for our protocol. It can improve many aspects: new ANO candidacy, increased...
