Welcome back to the weekly Mirror Spotlight Series! At Mirror we believe in the power of community. As a result, the community works together to champion best-in-class writers and publications from around the world.

Authors are selected based on factors including the quality of their writing, engagement, diversity, and vision. Each selected project is granted 1 $WRITE token with which they can claim a dedicated subdomain and join the DAO.

Writers, community builders, artists, and developers have published and shared their projects on Mirror since we first launched in December 2019.

At the Mirror DAO, we want to recognize the quality of these works and reward creators with a token of appreciation: a dedicated mirror subdomain. Previously, we did this through the $WRITE Race. Then, as Mirror reflected on our community building and direction, we decided to pause this event.

However, we have continued a community-led curation process of top projects via a weekly Spotlight Series and seasonal Mirror Reflection Awards.

Today we are happy to share that the Spotlight Series will continue, with a focus on community-led curation and a structured evaluation process.

Over the Pre-Season, the Mirror DAO has explored how to create an inclusive, accessible voting process for Season 1. Ideally, the voting process would require minimal attention while still providing members the power to reject proposals that aren’t aligned with the community mission. The Mirror DAO would like to propose we adopt Consent-Based Governance moving forward.

What is consent-based governance?

“Consent means the absence of objections. Similar to consensus, consent invites group participation in the decision-making process. ... After a formal decision-making process, a decision is ratified when there are no meaningful or “paramount” objections.”

How would this look for the Mirror DAO?

The Mirror DAO continues to expand its initiatives. Starting on Jan 18th, a new pod will start meeting and exploring a co-working and co-learning process for starting web3 communities. The pod will be called The Community Roundtable.

The first Community Roundtable cohort will be open to a small group of members and run for 4 weeks, from Jan 18th to Feb 8th. Each week, the participants will meet at 11 am EST on Tuesday for a 1-hour co-working session.

The following speakers have been confirmed for the first cohort:

  • Week 1: Daisy, Dirt
  • Week 2: Jarrod, Darkstar
  • Week 3: Nicola, SeedClub
  • Week 4: Gaby, TCG + Andrea, Snaxshot

The Mirror DAO continues to expand its community. Over the last two months, core contributors have identified the need to appoint a contributor to support community management.

As an experiment, we propose creating a part-time community manager role for the next 3 months (from the date of this proposal approval) and asking Tian, an active contributor to the Mirror community, to step into this role.

Tian runs the Mirror Curator DAO which curates entries and writers on Mirror. He has been answering questions in general and Chinese Discord channels since even before the DAO was kicked-off.

Tian would serve the Mirror DAO for a three-month period beginning when the vote passes. The role would be as a part-time community manager with an expected investment of 10-20 hours per week.

Every community should have a living mission that gets reviewed every season and re-written once every few years. A clear mission statement serves as a north star, a call-to-action, a summary of values for community members.

At the Mirror DAO we’ve created our first mission statement and are excited to share it with you.

Over time, we hope it becomes an articulation of our community vibe, a source of wholesome memes, and a framework to guide us through tough decisions.

Our community has gathered the best thinkers and creators in crypto. Over the past year, they have given birth to dozens of leading web3 communities. Now we have the opportunity to increase our impact by combining our strengths in the Mirror DAO.

To start, we have officially kicked off the Mirror DAO Pre-Season. During this period we will focus on creating a strong basis for long-term community development. Once core strategies are in place, a new Season will start. Each season will have thematic goals related to community sustainability, experimentation, and growth.

The Mirror DAO will have five initial objectives during this Pre-Season phase:

  1. Prepare pathways for communication and governance
  2. Articulate the Mirror DAO’s mission
  3. Update the Mirror DAO Membership Process
  4. Strengthen the Mirror developer and partnership ecosystem
  5. Propose a roadmap and objectives for Season 1

On Tuesday last week, the Mirror DAO conducted its first Town Hall. The energy was incredible. We celebrated a year of community growth, product launches, and developer projects. 

Mirror has become more than a publishing platform. 

Communities from around the world are launching new communities, creating projects to address climate change, funding new music, and even creating decentralized gaming organizations.

In August, Mirror airdropped $WRITE tokens to the community based on their contributions to Mirror. Each recipient was able to share the tokens with people in their network and help them start publishing and enjoy the Mirror toolkit. Many of these new members have gone on to create valuable projects and build their own vibrant communities, raising awareness around Mirror and creating more value within our ecosystem.

In many cases, it’s hard to know who will provide incredible value to our community until they start contributing. We must reflect as a community on contributions and retroactively reward those who build alongside us. We would like your help to find and reward those actively contributing to the Mirror ecosystem.

Today we are proud to announce the Mirror Reflection Awards

These awards will become (with your support) an ongoing recognition to people, communities, and projects that help drive the web3 ecosystem forward, with special appreciation for those teams building on top of the Mirror tools.  We have already seen a number of high quality independent developer projects, as well as curatorial efforts, emerge around the creative output of Mirror. We as an ecosystem have a big opportunity to further reward and encourage builders and contributors like these.
