MEET THE CANDIDATE: BojangleGuy Is Running For A Spot On The DAO's Discourse Facilitator Team
ApeCoin DAO Contributor and Discourse Facilitator nominee, BojangleGuy, is looking to streamline the DAO’s Ape Improvement Proposal Process as part of the DAO's Discourse Facilitator team.
Election 2023 is heating up around the swamp as 14 ApeCoin DAO contributors threw their hats in the ring and announced their candidacies for ApeCoin DAO's Discourse Facilitator team earlier this month.
As the Bored Ape Gazette previously reported, the DAO approved of the creation of a three-person, community led, Discourse moderation team last month when it passed Ape Improvement Proposal-240.
This team will be responsible for “overseeing the proposal process, moderating discussions, enforcing rules, and promoting positive community engagement based on DAO-approved guidelines,” according to the DAO. Each Discourse team member will serve a three-month term and will earn $8,000 USD per month.
One of the candidates running for a spot on the Discourse moderation team is ApeCoin DAO Contributor BojangleGuy.
"As someone who spends all day every day on discord, discourse, and twitter, this role is right up my alley," he wrote on his candidate Discourse page. "I have a passion for building communities and helping others reach their goals! I currently MOD for the Meebits DAO discord and the official Meebits discord. I am hyper organized, efficient and very tech savvy. Being able to serve the community as a discourse facilitator would be an honor!"
