Name:
[RFC] - Transition WL Tech and Add Team Member

Scope:
This formally requests transfer over of all Wonderland Tech and Docs to the elected Team. It also empowers the Team Lead, Alice, to make team changes. We want to add Catalyst to help with the tech transition.

Link to previous [DAO Discussion]:
“[DAO Discussion] - Transition WL Tech and Add Team Member”

Objective:
Transition over all tech and docs access from the outgoing team to the current elected team. Formally grant Alice the ability to add and remove from the team so long as such changes do not incur cost.

Provide a High Level Overview:
Our tech group is stepping away with Dani and we need to complete a handover of all pertinent tech and docs. This proposal facilitates that with the addition of Catalyst to the elected team. He is a long time community member that has been assisting with server security, bots, and operating the 3rd party site frogs.army. Reasonable funds will be available from the multisig to contract out work he is unable to handle in house. Alice is formally empowered to hire or fire team members that incur no cost to the DAO.

Provide Low Level Details:
Dani and our technical team have decided to step back from Wonderland. Three important items contained in this proposal will assist in a smooth transition of departing members areas of responsibilities.

  1. Allow Alice to make changes to the Team which incur no additional cost to the DAO with a prior minimum 48 hour notification to the community via an announcement.

  2. Provide authorization and access to improve, troubleshoot, or otherwise make changes to all official Wonderland tech and documentation.

  3. Catalyst, a longtime community member who helps with server bots, security, and runs the Wonderland tracking website frogs.army, is joining the Team to assist in house here.

Catalyst has the app dev and tech stack experience we need to ensure a smooth transition of key DAO items from departing technical team members. The current elected Team will share the cost burden to compensate the added member.

Payments for any external contracted work are expected to be within industry competitive range. They shall not exceed $10,000 per month, and will get authorized by the multisig without a DAO vote.
Any payments will be communicated to the DAO via announcement when they are made.

A couple examples of a potential contract work items would be modification of revenue share to add additional tokens or smart contracts.

If further funds are needed beyond the $10,000 per month limit a proposal will be put forth.

Business and/or technical requirements of the implementation of the proposal:
Will require transfer over of tech and docs from the outgoing team.

As I see it, it would be appropriate Wonderland to fund the new team member compensation.
It seems to me, this is not a moderation need. Why the current elected moderation team has to share the cost burden for this?

I agree that that would be appropriate as well! However for this initial transitionary period the team is being careful not to ask for any additional treasury funds. As we work next to implement some framework and structural changes I think it would be fair to ask for this position to be compensated separately and include this recommendation in that future proposal. :blush:

These common sense updates will greatly help with workflow on the day to day needs of running the dao.
