RewardDAO! How shall we evolve the Wall of Fame?
The Milestone creation process has come a long way, baby!
So how does the RewardDAO and Wall of Fame grow along with it? This thread is to brainstorm and explore the options, then I'll put a proposal up when there's rough consensus.
#1. Anyone can make their own milestone now and several contributors have become actively engaged in finding tasks to work on, getting the support they need to complete it, communicating what they have done, and are now making milestones not only directly to campaigns they support - 3 people also made their own RewardDAO milestones this month!
#2 The process still requires video creation at fame.giveth.io by recipient, and link entry into the spreadsheet by campaign manager to transfer the points and provide values for filling milestone data fields. This has to be done before the milestone can be created by anyone.
Future changes for consideration:
#3 So what to do with the Wall of Fame is the big question. Now that milestones can have videos in them, it could be viewed as the WoF has been rendered obsolete. If we did away with it we'd have to totally revamp the process, because right now the video triggers the autofill of information that goes in the milestone. Could be easy, just autofill them all, then have the milestone approval trigger the point distribution that prevents rollover. Might be good to get analytics on this page.. Even with the articles written about it, is anyone actually looking at the Wall of Fame??
#4 They can run concurrently for a few months, with point recipients continuing to post a video to the WoF, then the RewardDAO Campaign manager (yours truly) proposing their milestones for them; while those who wish to do it themselves can choose that alternative. In the meantime we can implement a bunch of automation features in PointsBot and whatnot that reduce friction in the process and make it easier for recipients to collect on their points.
#5 An ideal scenario would be for videos posted to milestones in the RewardDAO campaign to autoload up to the Wall of Fame, maybe get some blog posts, podcasts etc. rolling about the people of Giveth and how we role that encourage more participatory contributors to come play with us.
#6 Any change we select will mean revamping the Pointsbot and correspondent Point Spreadsheet procedures so it autofills a milestone then upon acceptance, the points get transferred out so they don't roll over.
Alright I’d love to hear your thoughts on any of these points, and to see what other things come up for discussion :) Thanks for playing!

RewardDAO point recipients make their own milestones Closed Wed 6 Mar 2019
Tension: RewardDAO Milestone workflow is still heavily manual and relies on one person (the Campaign Manager) tracking down Contributors, getting them to make their video, putting the link in the monthly spreadsheet and creating the Milestones, as well as shepherding each Milestone through the approval process to disbursement. The Contributor has no involvement or awareness other than communication initiated by the RewardDAO Campaign Manager, which is often only through Riot.
Opportunity: Reduce overhead for Campaign Manager, Increase likelihood of video production and Eth collection, incentivize use of the DApp by Contributors, and promote further engagement with Giveth in the community. Those who receive points can become Users of the DApp by learning to create their own Milestones and engaging in the testing, feedback and development.
Implementing this change will include the following:
1.) Automate messages to Point Recipients with links to Milestone Creation instructions (Contributors room on Riot, Contributor Guide in Wiki and RewardDAO Campaign)
2.) Update Contributor Guide in Wiki to include step by step instructions to create Milestone
3.) Modify the monthly spreadsheet so the text for each recipients milestone is available to them. Also explore how to automate sending them this information so they don't have to look in the spreadsheet.
4.) Create a Milestone in the RewardDAO Campaign to fund design/implementation of a solution to scrape videos from Milestones and display them on Wall of Fame.
