Based on the reddit poll.
Often, a significant share of regular voters return to chain governance to find a proposal which requested some figure of community funding passed.
The onus of voter participation is mostly on the voter as well as it is the proposer to properly communicate and market their proposal, so as to discourage voter apathy and lack of information. However, currently anyone can propose some figure of their choosing to be taken from the community chest, and with enough yes voters combined with abstainers, under the regular passing conditions could be permitted to take those funds from the community.
While NWV only needs 33% to block a proposal, this can sometimes be too harsh for proposals that need only minor changes.
Special conditions for proposals requesting funding, especially ones which may be considered asking for significant funds, should be implemented. These could include either:
- A higher pass threshold
- A higher quorum
- A threshold for explicit, non-abstainer votes
- A voting period longer than 14 days
- Said proposals should pass both a first approval stage, then
a revised stage, where the final figure of funding is agreed upon by the community.
