Taking part in the Particle DAO Discourse is an essential part of the Particle Ecosystem. The Discourse will be used as a central point to discuss critical points with the community.
Thus far the key types of posts you will see on discourse is a Request for Comment (RFC), a ParticleDAO Improvement Proposal (PIP), and a ParticleDAO Acquisition Proposal (PAP).
A Request For Comment(RFC) is an optional step for drafting official proposals. Ideally these posts are to seek feedback from community members and members of the Particle team.
ParticleDAO Improvement Proposals(PIP) are an essential part of the governance process. Using a template provided on the Discourse and post under this category is used to propose any changes to the community working agreements.
ParticleDAO Acquisition Proposal(PAP). These posts have a template and are used to propose works of art for the community to acquire.
First log in by connecting Discourse to your Discord account.
This will take you to a landing where you can start a new topic or view a post that already exists. Two of the pinned posts will be for the templates related to PIPs and PAPs. Pinned posts will show up at the top of their category.
When viewing a topic all previous responses will be listed starting with the oldest at the top and the most recent at the bottom. It is possible to reply to a specific comment or the post as a whole.
With the basics out of the way you are now ready to dive in and take your part in the discussion around the Particle DAO, an important part of the governance process!
