    Continue with the marketing videos grant?

    I think the quality of animation was in line with what was expected, but the voice did sound a little...off. I am happy to spend a reasonable amount of time next week with the scripts, and I can look for voice artist online if you need a hand?

    Process Discussion ANO assessment process - role of Guides and Standing Parties in next round.

    Thanks for the clarification, Nic 1:1 = 50% Guide (i.e. 10% each) + 50% ANO (2% each)? Or 1/(num standing parties)% Guide and 1/(num standing parties)% ANO?

    Process Discussion ANO assessment process - role of Guides and Standing Parties in next round.

    @Mike Buckingham @Nic R Given the proposed split, all the objective factors seem to sit with the guides and testnet admin, and all the subjective factors seem to sit with the ANOs. Because we publish the criteria for the objective scores, every applicant should be "maxing out" their objective...

    There isn't a question mark in that statement, so I'll answer "I have to ask what message we send to the sophisticated individuals from companies and government that will be performing due diligence on the protocol if we elect you into a leadership role[?]" This is 100% not what I wanted and I...

    I will take "you" to be "BuildingIM" as I do not personally have standing in the community. BuildingIM has not supported the Factom Inc grants as a protest vote against the lack of transparency from previous grant rounds. BuildingIM supported Factom Inc in the first grant round, but found the...

    Always, and I hope I have demonstrated that during the last year. David's question did not impact the situation. Calum and I were unable to agree on the next steps for BuildingIM to take. This has been an ongoing issue for a few weeks which flared up since Monday this week. On Friday...

    With the shuttering of BuildingIM, I will now be acting as a non-ANO guide. This departure from ANO work will free me up to spend more time on guide activities. I think that my experience of being an ANO coupled with my status as a non-ANO will allow me to compare both the views of the...

    BuildingIM leaving the Factom Protocol Authority Set

    Due to significant differences in vision between the directors of BuildingIM Ltd, it has been decided that the company will be dissolved after one year of operation (2nd May 2019). On this date, the company will cease to be a Factom Protocol ANO and all servers will be turned off. The...

    @Matt Osborne CBC Ltd is a limited company that I have set up for the purpose of being a guide. I am the only officer listed, which can be checked at https://beta.companieshouse.gov.uk/company/11836734/officers. As the only officer of this company only I will be in a position to administrate...

    @DanG As I wrote in my original post at the start of this thread, I am often not voicing opinions that are aligned with the majority of those taking part in the discussions. This demonstrates my independence of thought. My businesses (CMC and BuildingIM) is not linked to any other ANO...

    @Paul Bernier I understand your concerns, and I'll be honest and say that I have them too. If the other guides decide that they can dedicate 40 hours a week to guiding then I would probably struggle to keep up. What I can talk about is how I have performed over the past 5 months in my...

    @David Chapman 1. Do you have a LinkedIn? If so, what is it? If not, why not? https://www.linkedin.com/in/ben-jeater/ 2. Certain processes such as Document Ratification require a 4/5 vote from Guides prior to the process moving on to additional Standing Parties for a vote. Do you feel this is...

    @Mike Buckingham Big question. If I have to pick one thing, it would be to increase the number of standing party groups (e.g. give standing to holders). This isn't one thing though because of all the technical and governance hurdles between here and a robust system involving an increased group...

    Ratified Doc 106 - Factom Grant Success Determination Process

    Just a couple of comments from me: 2.1.1 says: This implies that all grants need a final milestone AND intended completion date. Otherwise, someone could create a grant that says "my final milestone is to deliver X within the grant period" which is woolly language and would allow the grantee...
