I think the forum serves a very good function in drawing attention to everything in general. It is organised by topic, it is used by some members of the core team, to communicate with users and sov holders. It is the place where SIPs are proposed and discussed, problems are reflected upon, strategies are discussed or supported, analyses are made that the team doesn’t do, fantastic groups like the Circle of Tokens are seeded, and ideas are constantly suggested for Sovryn to make changes, improvements, or launch new products.
Anyone can open a debate on a particular topic, which will have more or less interest and follow up, readings and responses. In the case of a SIP proposal it will either be presented, discussed, and end in a SIP or be punished with silence or general disapproval.
If someone presents an idea, the same thing will happen, and it will occasionally be lost among hundreds of posts. If ten different ideas are proposed it will generate the same thing multiplied by ten. But an idea is not a SIP, an idea is something with a different power.
In these almost fifteen months of the forum, countless ideas have been proposed, and the vast majority have been ignored, unanswered, forgotten, and finally lost forever. Those who proposed them were not happy in most cases and lost the enthusiasm to suggest new ideas. Sometimes a proposal is repeated months later, by another person who had the same idea. You may have better luck or the same thing may happen again.
I believe that the forum is not the right place to throw ideas like stones off a cliff. It needs another place, order, method, follow-up, feed-back. It needs a place that excites everyone, a factory of ideas that spreads enthusiasm to the most creative, and is something that differentiates Sovryn from other boring projects that are afraid of change and innovation.
