Contribution Summaries

Hi experimenters and arcologists, here’s the latest update on contributions to our project up to Week 39, the one ending on Sunday, 25 September 2021. Remember, so far the only ways we recognize your contributions are through forum post likes, Discord chat likes, and Github pull requests.

https://forum.detroitarcology.org

We are open to adding new methods in the future, such as participating in meetings, uploading video recordings of work, and proposing to receive tokens via the DAO when it is ready.

This is your democracy and needs your input. We can’t move towards permanently affordable housing in Detroit for everyone without you. Please consider participating in any of the three channels above, especially responding to this thread.

Here are the stats counted from SourceCred so far, still experimental and subject to changing relative weights based on your feedback. Please reply to this thread if you have questions about how contributions are counted, have suggestions for improvements, or any other feedback. We are working together to design a system which will be part of our first legal LLC operating agreement, and to issue our governance token on the Ethereum blockchain. One proposal is that when our first house (3731 Northwestern St) is sold some time in 2022, we will conduct a liquidity event in which the sale proceeds are divided up among governance token holders who are eligible to participate (the third of token holders who actively work and contribute day-to-day), and they will be able to sell their tokens for cash at that time, triggering a taxable event. In the United States, I believe this would count as a capital gain subject to about 30% if you hold for less than a year or about 15% for longer periods. I am not an accountant or a lawyer, however, so please consult your professional advisors once the LLC operating agreement is finalized before you sign it.

Separately, we track work hours for those who wish to invest capital into 3731 and work toward its rehabbing and sale.

One proposal is that SourceCred grain be treated 1:1 with hours of work. That is, each SourceCred grain, which represents approved effort from other members, counts as much as 1 hour of self-approved effort. The ratio is open for change and feedback is welcome on this point.

We’ll have an onboarding event soon so that everyone who is interested can get introduced to the technologies we use. These facilitate, but don’t replace, human relationships, so please keep introducing yourselves to each other and getting to know how each person views their ideal neighborhood and city.

See you next week.

The above is for up to Week 39 (27 Sep 2021).
I changed the topic title to be for all future contribution summaries, cumulatively.
That is, the latest reply in this post represents the total of all previous summaries, plus the most recent month.

Note: there are still many things open for discussion that we need input from everyone about:

  • SourceCred weights for different settings: are you a first poster? What other emoji besides :+1: should be counted?
  • SourceCred plugins: should we count different things besides GitHub, Discord, and this forum?
  • Should hours worked count the same as SourceCred grain? (Currently 1:1)
  • Not everyone likes to use the forum or do all this reading or be recorded all the time. How do other co-ops you belong to count contributions, and how should we do it?

As always, please reply to this thread or start your own topic and express yourself to the community. We look forward to learning more about your viewpoint and co-creating with you.

Work Hour and SourceCred Equivalency

I’m proposing a 10:1 equivalence of SourceCred points (cred or grain) to work hours.
That is, it takes 10 Credit to equal 1 work hours. Feedback on this is welcome.

3731 Northwestern LLC Operating Agreement

For the purpose of completing the 3731 Northwestern operating agreement, I’m proposing the initial ownership percentages be taken from the contribution summaries up to 30 January 2022 above, with updates posted in our balance sheet every year when we renew our LLC filing. I’ll be listing all the people with an ownership percentage of 1% or higher. Here’s a spreadsheet showing the ownership percentages of everyone, given two kinds of ratios and given a few typical expected sale prices for the house.

  • Ratio of work hours to SourceCred / forum participation (“labor”)
  • Ratio of capital contribution to labor contribution
  • $90,000 sale price up to $102,000 sale price

Feedback, suggestions, corrections, and other audits on the above is welcome.
