Karma - Grantee accountability+feedback thread

Karma was the recipient of two grants in Season 2.

  1. Grant 1: To build a Delegate dashboard to show delegate activity and stats
  2. Grant 2: Enhance Discourse forum plugin to streamline delegate activity.

We are grateful to the DAO for awarding us this grant and we are eager to help build tools to improve governance. We created this thread to

  1. Share our progress and hold ourselves accountable
  2. Solicit feedback from the community on tools we are building for Optimism and how we can make it better

We have made good progress on development of both the tools. The Optimism delegate dashboard is up and running here https://optimism.showkarma.xyz/. This is currently hosted on our subdomain but it is an independent site that can be hosted on any domain. The tool currently displays

  • Delegates along with their voting percentage and voting power
  • Lifetime and 30 day stats
  • Delegate pitch/statement
  • Voting history/how they voted on each proposal
  • WIP: We will soon start displaying voting reason some delegates have been posting on the forum.

The forum plugin development is complete and we are waiting on Optimism team to install the plugin which requires migrating the forum to another hosting provider.


Thank you for sharing your Team’s progress and holding yourselves accountable These look great and are very much appreciated!

Would it be possible to add delegate interests and forum tag?

This way when proposers need feedback they can filter interests in the dashboard and make a quick list of delegates tags to be asked for feedback.

Good idea. We are already storing forum handle and interests. We will add the filter in the next few days.


Hey there,
Thanks for starting this thread
I noticed some discrepancies with off-chain votes percentages, is it possible you not monitoring votes cast from boardroom?

Hello - I will message you to see what the discrepancy you are seeing is.

We pushed a couple of updates based on feedback https://optimism.showkarma.xyz/

  1. You can now search by delegate interests!

  2. We display delegate interests in each card so it’s easy to browse and also display forum handles for proposers to easily reach out for feedback.


OMG, this is so sweet! I’ll give it a try and see what else I see.

Hey coming back with some feedback:

If I search for my user I don’t get any suggestions until I put my full name on the search bar “Dhannte.eth” maybe it’ll be better if you can suggest possible results as soon as I start writing the name

Also can you remove

From the off-chain % counter. This proposal was just a test to see if a few delegates were able to vote but somehow counts negatively for those that didn’t need to vote.

We are having some issues pulling votes on Snapshot, we’ll remove that test proposal soon.

Partial search is now live!
