This idea seems very good to me, but there is something I don’t understand should the one running this mission ask those running missions for updates on them? Wouldn’t it be easier to ask for the metrics in the mission template?

Hello @AxlVaz!

You are correct, while the mission template serves as a fundamental guide for tracking progress, our approach involves a more comprehensive evaluation process. This mission propose to take those metrics and compare it with the IEF and MG to evaluate their impact and then write a brief and comprensible report on how this mission is going (milestones, issues, etc). In essence, our mission is to bridge the gap between raw metrics and meaningful impact assessments.

I believe that, by providing detailed information, it is possible to contribute to a better understanding of each mission making future evaluation processes (RetroPGF for example) more efficient and bring overall success in accessibility to the governance of the collective.

I like the idea of reports, however if the suggestion is to make multi-lingual reports, we should open them up to more langauges.

It would be great!

When I wrote this request I only had in mind Spanish and English because they are the languages that my team and I can handle (native level or B2/C1), even though we are studying other languages like French and Portuguese right now we don’t feel able to execute these tasks in those languages.

But if other teams would like to incorporate other languages it would be great if they would apply and this assignment could be adjusted to their respective needs.

Thanks for the explanation @Ariiellus and all the best to your team.

I have been working with teams that produce crypto content in 10 different languages, we’d definitely be interested in this and I’d like to request you to make this mission multi-lingual as opposed to restructuring it to two langauges. :slight_smile:

Happy to restructure that way but some concerns appear to me. How we define which languages should be considered for this mission and how do we select those applying in order to prevent n applicants which will use AI / translate tools to accomplish this mission?

Do we have any database of how much multilingual members are in the collective @brichis?

Do you have in mind any procedure to verify applicants are native speakers or high fluent in x language? @jengajojo

An idea could be define 3 languages in advance:
1.- Spanish
2.- Portuguese (because I saw a like from @JoaoKury and Brasil is pretty different than the rest of Latam)
3.- TBD (I have in mind right now french / german / italian)

Of course each applying should provide their respective reports in english to guarantee that the whole collective could access their information.

This changes will still improve the governance accessibility and could be covered perfectly by 3 teams bringing more diversity to the collective.

Hey @jengajojo & @Ariiellus! I believe that for this particular proposal, the research, analysis, and evaluation tasks can be carried out by a single team, while the translation of the material can involve multiple teams. To minimize duplicated efforts, my suggestion is to assign these tasks to a single applicant and specify that the content will be in English. Any teams interested in translating these reports can apply to RetroPGF. wdyt?

This is something that is already being handled by the Metrics and Milestones sub committee of the Grants Council so this mission is unnecessary and I will not be giving my approval.

Hey @Ariiellus – just wanted to flag this as a proposal that still needs delegate approvals in order to move to a vote. If you are no longer interested in pursuing this proposal – please disregard this message. In order to see the delegates assigned to your proposal those can be found here. The deadline to provide feedback and approvals for Mission Requests is February 7th at 19:00

Cheers!

I think it’s a good opportunity for others to become involved in the collective, @brichis. This idea could broaden the scope of what is happening in the collective without being attached to a specific mission, and then badgeholders could evaluate if that was valuable.

Should we change the next line?:

**Should this Foundation Mission be fulfilled by one or multiple applicants:**one applicant **

After delving into the Milestones and Metrics Sub-Committee, I see a significant distinction between the goals of this proposal and the MMSC’s responsibilities. While the MMSC is responsible for reviewing and grant finalist progress, this proposal aims to share a consistent report for people with different backgrounds.

If you @katie or another Delegate suggest me to backtrack on this proposal, I think the right way to go would be to realize and apply to RPGF. This proposal could be uncertain as to whether it is something the collective should support right now

If anyone feels that we should go ahead and adjust the guidelines then I will be on the lookout for feedback.

This proposal has been updated, general changes are:

  • Baseline grant amount from 20k to 10k
  • Mission be fulfilled from “up to 3” to one applicant
  • Information in Spanish has been eliminated to encourage people to translate documents and share it with their communities.

Hope this changes are enough to pass this proposal to Ready to vote
