For Duniter (This is MY interpretation, it is not absolute but I hope it is mainly right)
Why this community would be for ?
To implement the TRM, which is a new way to create the money (and we think it is fairer)
What would be the rules to have the right to enter this community ?
Being a human and having a unique membership
What would be the benefits for its members to be part of it ?
Being recognised as a human and so gainig the right to create money
What would be the interactions with non-members ?
Non-members can do transactions, they just cannot create money (but can gain it)
Who can decide what and how (unanimity ? 51% consensus ? etc…) ?
Rules are defined in the license and in the software, you have to agree in order to be a member. These rules can change if at least 51% of the members calculating nodes agree and start to run another version of the software.
The voting procedure should be permamanet. You should let people change their mind. It is not fair to vote once, then not to be allowed to vote for the same subject again.
The rule that requires 51% is not voted, and you do not allow people to change their mind.
Some people believe it is unfair the 51% of the people to claim that their decisions should be valid for 100% of the time.
Maybe, create a place “on the internet” for this project ? To gather informations and interested people ?
No dash-forum, no duniter-forum, no pivx-forum, no what-you-want-currency-forum. This project’s forum. It is the first step to create a community - a place where only go interested people.
Here, Duniter has some rules - maybe not perfect, but it is still the beginning - and you come and say “let’s vote to change the rules”. I want to really test Duniter’s rules before choosing if it is right or not, OR testing two different systems at the same time.
You won’t make Duniter match your ideas, so, try to make your ideas become real, and begin by gathering people : where you live, on a website/forum, etc.
It took @Galuel 9 years to see his ideas become real. So be patient. And if you think that Duniter is a good codebase, please, help yourself and modify it - that’s the point of free software.
The problem of the vote is the electoral roll (electoral list)
Who can vote for the 1st rule ? Do you need unanimity ? Of 7 billions of humans ?
What would be the list for the opening of a forum ? And someone like me, who discovered the project 2 years ago, have I the right to refuse things decided at the beginning because I was not part of it ?
