RE: I've Officially Joined the VYB Stewardship Board
We haven't been given the full details on what else the VYB Project Fund will be used for, but I assume different community contests and initiatives.
Dropping a quick one here to answer this specifically!
The VYB Project Fund was envisioned as a sponsorship styled fund initially which would provide the startup boost for various projects in the VYB tribe. For instance.. Billy Bob wants to create a web application that will show curation data easily for all of the VYB taggers, he needs some help to get it rolling but doesn't know where to turn. He could make a proposal and present it for the VYB Project Fund and then the VSB can discuss and decide on the way forward to help support him.
Contests on VYB (and cross-tribe, cross-layer) will be supported by @vyb.contests, although it's not yet been fully ironed out. The initial plan was to match prize pool funds (ie. winners receive 30 VYB from a contest, vyb.contests matches that with 30 VYB) so that participants can earn a little more for their efforts.
I'll be managing this and will likely tie it in with @vyb.earn. Once the curation project is stable and we have the reward pool up to full speed I'll likely rally people to create some more engaging and fun contests to get the VYB poppin'. Always looking for assistance too.
Loving your enthusiasm and levelled opinion about the VSB and VYB governance. It's a fairly big responsibility but it's something that we want people to enjoy being part of, not feel obligated or pressured into doing.
Hope you're having a great day buddy!
So, what does this mean? Well, in terms of my content and shit... Not much. I'm still the same old NiftyPhill and I'm gunna keep doing my thing.
This bit is spot on. I feel the same way. I've got my serious dressed and pressed (more like suit jacket and shorts) persona, and I've got my walk around the house with nothing but my boots on persona. Same Cal, different vibes.
