- Delegate Councils are analogous to board of directors
- Hold the keys to the community account
- Limited decision making?
- What decisions do you think the delegates should be limited to?
- Who would be making decisions?
- Elect lead link every two months
- Similar to dGov
- Lead link creates roles that people would fill
- Decision making is up to each person filling the role
- Who would choose direction?
I don’t see any problem with delegates and think it’s a wonderful process, pretty ideal way of cooperation
Retroactive ƒractally process is more efficient to incentivize work than circles with lead links
I don’t agree that delegates are moving too slowly and am curious to learn more about this perspective from Lennie, Vlad, and Patrick
I don’t want it to move too fast, it’s already moving very quickly
Slower moving stability
Delegates can be very efficient in the decisions
Our biggest efficiency gains can come from using better tools for collaboration like Notion, Telegram polls, and Descript
Asynchronous work throughout the week can help make delegates far more efficient without sacrificing decentralization, agility, or simplicity
I believe we can make many more decisions
It’s infeasible to represent by highest amount of respect earned overall
Similar to dgov
What is the role of a delegate?
The role of the delegate is to make community decisions and express community opinions

Before electing a delegate, ask….
I agree that Vlad’s ideas are worth exploring
We have organizational structure
I agree we need structure
How do delegates make community decisions and express opinions?
A delegate expresses opinions on community matters
Making a proposal to the community is basically like asking a question to a friend. It’s simple. You can basically ask whatever you want to your friend and then it’s up to them to respond how they want. The main difference with proposals at Eden Fractal is that the proposer is asking about ten people (ie delegates) at once rather than just one. Other than that, making a proposal is really quite similar to asking a question to a friend. Proposals are just questions and consensus is just a group opinion. I wrote about this in November in an article about consensus and had a great discussion with Tadas about it during the first episode of Creator Talk at this timestamp.
What is Consensus, Anyway?
Consensus can be defined in the following way:
Consensus Signals and Formal Power
With both of these systems, it is important to remember that votes are purely signals to help the community reach consensus and make decisions. All thresholds that may be described in these proposals are rather arbitrary because Eden Fractal is only able to express shared opinions and it is up to each individual to respond to opinions as they see fit.
Eden Fractal currently has no formal governance power. The power to take actions is held by individuals within the community who may voluntarily choose to act in accordance with consensus. For example, tools that the community uses such as the Eden.fractal EOS account services (smart contracts), associated social media accounts, zoom accounts, and websites are all operated independently of any consensus process used by participants in the weekly meetings. The same is also true for all other community decisions - the individual is always empowered to make their own decisions independently of the community consensus and act in accordance with consensus as they see fit. The community as a whole has no formal governance power other than the ability to express shared opinions and signals that may persuade individuals to voluntarily act for the benefit of the community.
This can change with technical innovations in the future and create immense benefits for the community. The Eden Fractal community as a whole can gain formal governance power when the permissions for the Eden.fractal EOS account MSIG and other associated tools can be dynamically updated to integrate directly with the community’s consensus process. However, this is not possible without further technical development. At this time, we should remember that all votes are only signals to help the community reach consensus and make decisions.

Thank you for reaching out and asking. Delegates vote on proposals during meetings in the hour after breakout rooms. You can see active proposals (and other topics for discussion) here on the Eden Fractal Consortium page. You can vote on proposals there to signal your opinion and help set the agenda for this week’s meeting, but the actual voting takes place during the weekly meeting. Does that make sense and provide the guidance you’re seeking?
Btw you can see past proposals in the consortiumlv EOS account or the show notes for each week. Soon this will all be easy to see and explained in one place but the app and documentation are still in development
