This page includes the original plan, design considerations, and discussions throughout the early history of Cagendas from late 2022. It is saved for posterity and organized here for your convenience. You may also be interested in exploring our articles about Vlalendas, Cagendas, and Agendas to learn more. Enjoy!

How to Play Cagendas
The original version of Cagendas can be simply summarized in the following four steps:
1) Propose agenda items for five minute time slots. Anyone can propose an agenda item for a five minute time slot on Consortium.
- For example, you could propose that
- You will give a presentation about ‘x’ for 5 minutes
- Person A speaks about topic ‘y’ for 5 minutes
- The group does ‘z’ activity for 5 minutes
- The Eden+Fractal council votes on ‘x’ proposal
- To better organize our thoughts, we can create a new group on Consortium to separate agenda items from other polls and proposals. The new group could be could named Cagendas or some other name.
2) Vote for agenda items. Anyone can vote for agenda items with respect points that they’ve earned during weekly meetings.
- You have a limited amount of votes in each game, so choose carefully to pick the best topics!
3) At the end of each five minute interval, whichever agenda item receives the most votes will be focus of community discussion for the next five minutes.
- In order to be counted, the winning agenda item must receive at least 30% more votes than the agenda item that previously had the most votes.
- Votes for any proposed agenda items that do not receive the most votes will be counted in the next five minute interval.
- Whichever agenda item receives the most votes is removed from the list of proposed agenda items immediately. Players can propose the same agenda item again if they’d like to discuss it further.
4) The game ends after one hour and the respect points for all players are replenished back to prior voting power at the end of each game.
- Alternatively, we could start with 10 minute time slots. This may be best to test it out at a slower pace first while we test the process.
- Instead of counting total respect earned, we could only count the total respect earned over the past 5 weeks, 12 weeks, or another time frame.
- Instead of (only) counting respect points, Eden+Fractal status or some other metric could be used. For example, there could be a different version of Cagendas where all votes are made with the Eden+Fractal council. This could work well with Jorge’s suggestion to provide each delegate with 100 votes.
- In the future, there could be additional rewards for creating and voting on agenda items.
- Much of the functionality for Cagendas is already built with Consortium. I will share more technical considerations soon.

What is Cagendas?
Cagendas is an exciting new game where communities can have fun while allocating time more effectively!
The Eden community has been deliberating to find the best ways to set agendas for discussions and proposals during weekly meetings. I propose that we play a game of Cagendas to help the community cooperate during the hour after breakout rooms. Cagendas can provide structure for Eden and other communities to guide discussions, process proposals, and coordinate all sorts of group activities in real-time.
Please note that this idea is a work in progress in an early stage of development and will be updated soon. Thanks for reading. Enjoy :)
