[FINAL] Create and maintain the 'Optimism Vision Reservoir'

I’m voting yes on this proposal. The amount requested is small so I’m happy to be supportive of it, with input from my colleague Yesim Kaymak.


I will be voting yes for your proposal. It seems like it’s quite a nice value add to the ecosystem.


I voted in favour of this proposal, the amount is fair and so I am hoping to support more initiatives that add value at a reasonable cost.


Congrats on your proposal passing :slight_smile:

Nice to meet you! I am Jesse and I work at the Optimism Foundation as the lead of our Ambassador program. I would love to keep in contact with you to see how this mission progresses as I believe this would be an incredible on-boarding resource for our new ambassadors

Hi and thank you for your message. It’s really a work in progress, still in the early stages. But I can already give you a link to the beta version ( :sweat_smile:) of the Reservoir (please don’t “over” share it for now) : Notion – The all-in-one workspace for your notes, tasks, wikis, and databases.

You’ll notice that it’s still quite dry & empty at the moment… but I’m going to upload resources more regularly from now on. (The ‘Glossary’ and ‘about me’ sections still need to be written. I’m going to link this to a proper domain name)

On a side note, keep in mind that I can’t devote all my time to it (about 8 hours/week as indicated in my mission statement), so it will take a little more patience to have a fully filled reservoir.


I love it :heart: I really like the extract and highlighted part with your notes. This will be really helpful, continue working hard!


hey! this looks quite good already and could be very valuable for the Optimism ecosystem.

Wanted to let you know that I’ve been quite sick this week with a stomach infection. Unfortunately, this has made it impossible for me to make the progress I had hoped for on the Reservoir project this week. I’m really hoping that I’ll start feeling better in the coming days so I can get back to work in earnest.
Thank you for your understanding.
