[PROPOSAL ##][DRAFT] Decrease voting period to 7 days

I feel like the Cosmos Hub could move faster. Now that most of proposal are presented here in advance, we could decrease the voting period to 7 days instead of 14. This would energize a bit more governance? Wdyt?

I kinda love the hub’s slower approach tbh-- but since this is a mutable value, I’d be open to trying it, and if we don’t like it, flipping it back to 14.

Risk here is that increasing the speed of governance may come at the cost of losing thoughtful discussion. If we decrease the voting period, I like the idea of doing that in parallel with @jacobgadikian’s current forum proposal that mandates a fixed pre-discussion period on the forum.

I think that the 14 Day period in place is probably a good approach, we wouldn’t want to rush governance on the Hub imo - gives time to discuss, assess certain risks, and reflect appropriately

Actually I agree with both @uditvira and @Damien and I came up with a notion of coming on the hub fireside chat just before submitting the discussion period Proposal to the chain.

Would you like to join also Damien?

Sure, would be good to join - just need the details. Thanks Jacob!

Hey, I am not sure what time the fireside chats are. I checked around twitter but couldn’t find it. I usually just join when I see it active. I do think they are on Wednesdays though.

I’ll keep an eye out for it, might be on a flight Wednesday Night CET, but if I’m not I’ll join in and give my opinions.

Fireside chats are 7 PM BST / 2 PM ET. The one on the 7th is going to be primarily for discussing the ICF delegation policy, I think. But @jacobgadikian, @Damien and @intern we can see about hopping in or setting the topic for the 14th. Feel free to link up with me on TG or Twitter DMs if you want to chat about this - I’m @lexaMichaelides.

With this draft (decrease voting period) and Jacob’s one about mandating the forum, I think it would make sense to coordinate a bit. Personally I think it makes sense to do the forum one first and then the voting period one after if it passes, since it would probably not be good to decrease the voting period if we don’t have a firm sign that we’re all committing to discussing props for longer before they go on-chain!


Thanks for the supplying when the chats happen! Yeah I agree, it would make sense to coordinate a bit - my twitter handle is @damobon feel free to hit me up! - maybe not the best to discuss this during the ICF delegations discussion I think that is a very important discussion for the huband should be the sole focus.
