Worldwide Webb3 Forum v0.1 - vision & guidelines

The Worldwide Webb Forum v0.1

On November 28th, 2021 Worldwide Web3 launched on Ethereum. We’re truly humbled by the response seen across the metaverse.

The Worldwide Web3 Forum is a place where community members can discuss ideas, vote on proposals by select community members, and contribute to the creation of the Worldwide Webb ecosystem.

Why the Forum

The Worldwide Webb has brought together people with amazing and brilliant ideas, from many different communities. We believe that we are a platform for all NFT communities, and on top of that, we believe that community discourse can bring projects forward in ways that have not been possible in the past.

Areas of Focus

The Forum has four key areas of focus that are up for discussion.

  1. Partnerships
  2. Scaling
  3. Product
  4. Community

Partnerships

In order for the Worldwide Webb to become the best and most interoperable Metaverse game, we need to bring the game into the mainstream and foster advocacy among passionate gamers, streamers & content creators. We also want to bring mainstream brands into the Worldwide Webb.

Scaling

We want to build a large, versatile team that can ship quickly, adapt to new technologies, and come up with innovative marketing ideas & experiences.

Product

To truly understand what communities and users want from the Worldwide Webb, discussion about the product itself, from people with a stake in it, and regular use of it is required. This includes discussion about balance changes, different features, new functionality & other things revolving around the core game itself.

Events & Community

What would a metaverse platform be without events, and a community to attend them? We want to hear your thoughts on the types of events you would like to see within the Worldwide Webb. Ideas about community-led projects are also welcome, e.g. a community member opening up an NFT store within the game.

Community MVPs

Community MVPs are users who have gained the trust of the community, and the trust of the team & have gained the ability to help lead the discourse. Their responsibility is to start discussions, engage in discussions started by others, refine proposals & submit them.

The Proposal life cycle

Before a proposal can be voted upon, it has to be discussed within the community governance forum. After adequate discussion, the vote may be put to a preliminary proposal by a community MVP. If that vote passes, the team will review the vote, and maybe make some minor changes to it. After a team review, the proposal will once again be voted upon. If the preliminary proposal does not pass, the idea may be further discussed or dropped

Discussion

The discussion starts with an idea. Before an idea can become a proposal, it needs to go through an initial discussion phase, so that an understanding of demand and support around the idea can be met.

The Community MVPs then identify the ideas that gather the most support within the community and draft preliminary proposals around those ideas.

The Preliminary Proposal

After an idea with enough support and demand has been identified, the community MVP will create a preliminary proposal.

Preliminary Proposal Structure

Proposal ID: A unique identifier for the proposal

Discourse: A link to the thread in which the Discourse was conducted

Rationale: A clear argument for the proposal

Timeline: What time frame will the proposal be based on? When will the action start? How long will it take?

Goal: Measurable goals for the proposal that can be tracked.

Cost: How much will the proposal cost?

A quorum of at least 15% is required for the proposal to be reviewed and upgraded by the team. Since 1 apartment = 1 vote, this means that 1360 votes must be given. Failure to attract enough attention towards a proposal will result in the removal of the proposal.

Team Review & Final Vote

After the preliminary proposal gets enough support, the team will review the proposal and put it to a final vote. The review is necessary, because there are legal, structural and financial implications that need to be considered.

After the proposal is reviewed, the team will submit a final proposal which may then be voted upon by the community.
