The proposal was drafted at the request of Daniele and the community at large to compensate and retain the services of the most active members of the volunteer moderation team. The team is available 24/7 to provide support, education, engagement and member management. A direct line of communication with the core team is requested, along with increased authorization to make changes to the server, including post announcements and relay information. This will improve communication flow to members in the future.

[DAO Discussion] - Wonderland Moderator Compensation
The initial proposal garnered around 6 800 views and close to 250 comments. Many comments are supportive of the proposal, some are asking for more transparency on selected people, and some are concerned about compensation. This RFC should be read in conjunction with the original discussion.
Here is clarification on moderator activity since Wonderland started in September:
Nal X: 10.4k
These data include behind the scenes channels. The bulk of stated activity is October onward when the server grew quickly. This does not include countless DMs with one on one support or forum moderation. Any member ranked Cheshire Cat or above can verify these numbers including Daniele.
Behind the scenes channel activity includes things such as:
- Internal communications with core team when possible
- Coordination including troubleshooting complex issues or information sharing
- Strategizing and configuring anti-scam bots to protect against the hordes of scam accounts and bots that attack a cryptocurrency server of our size frequently
- Managing the forum of one of the largest and most active DAOs
- Gathering feedback from moderators, volunteers and core team members
There was some confusion about the total compensation each person is receiving. The proposal included a lump sum of 25,000 MIM monthly for the entire team of eight, not per individual. The Senior Moderator is expected to earn more than the rest of the team and will also pay for server bots.
Feedback from stage one of the proposal indicated members would be more comfortable with partial payment in wMEMO to be more directly incentivized by the protocol’s future success. The pay scale is updated to reflect that as follows.
Monthly total for the entire team:
0.5 wMEMO (currently valued at 10 650$ as of this RFC)
*Note that allocation should be reviewed if the price of wMEMO were to be too high.
The Senior Moderator will distribute funds monthly, and it is at her discretion on how to allocate them. The team has the utmost faith in her fairness. Performance from the team is expected to remain consistent.
This proposal will allow the moderation team to implement changes to the existing platforms based on suggestions and feedback from the community members. Something it currently does not have the authority to do. Communication, forum structure and overall member experience will be top priority for the moderation team in order to let the core team focus on other priorities.
We believe in the potential of Wonderland and would like to help it prosper. Hiring a team to help the project establish a solid foundation and become more organized to maximize its potential is key for the future of the protocol.
- YES - Implement the proposed compensation and authority.
- NO - Don’t implement the proposed compensation and authority.
