    • #16c Voting cycle ends tomorrow (Security Council Members and Canyon Upgrade). This will be the last cycle of the year, don’t wait until the last minute!
    • We’ll have a governance break from the 23rd to January 3rd Up until December 23rd. Season five will start on January 4th.
  • Mission Request Creation:
    • Workshop tomorrow at 19:00 UTC, the workshop will be recorded and posted later.
    • Is now active! The top 100 delegates can submit their request, and non-delegates can request sponsorship on a request from a delegate (Seeking Mission Request Sponsorship).
    • There’s a few requests already posted on the forums, as always feedback is more than welcomed: Mission Requests. :slightly_smiling_face:
    • As mentioned before Mission Requests drafts must be posted to the forum by January 17th, then they’ll need 4 delegates approvals by February 7th.
    • For any feedback, collaboration, etc, go to the Mission Request discord channel.
  • Anticipation Commission Onboarding:
    • Just as a reminder, this is kind of a set 10 million OP delegation for independent delegates, made to counterbalance some of the other delegation programs going on for the chains and protocols.
    • To read in more detail: Anticapture Commission.
    • After voting cycle #16c is over, delegates who qualify will be calculated based on participation. At the end of this week or the beginning of the next there will be a post of all the delegates that qualified and then they will be reached out to with an opt-in form and all the additional details that they need.
  • Builders Grants Delegation S5:
    • Locked grants from S4 can now be delegated.
    • Everyone who received a Builders Grant in the past 12 months will get a form via email that they can fill out and then delegate to whoever they want. This is going to happen in the next two weeks.
  • We also had @Sinkas.eth talking a little about the Delegates Corner Podcast, where they interview delegates to learn about their background and involvement in Optimism governance. Most importantly: doing an open invitation to delegates who want to participate on the podcast to reach out to him to be interviewed.
    • Sinkas can be reached: via twitter @Sinkas_. Mirror @Sinkas_eth or telegram @Sinkas5
  • L2Beat is looking for ideas to propose for mission requests, if you have them, reach out to @kaereste or attend L2Beat office hours.

Happy Holidays to everyone!
