Discussions for CGP20: Community Appreciation Gifts

This is a thread for discussing CGP20: Community Appreciation Gifts.

UPDATE: Now that the proposal has passed, I would like to use this thread to announce community gifts on a monthly basis. We have created a form for which folks can submit nominations for community members that they think would deserve a gift: Community Appreciation Gift Nomination
As you can tell, the process is not as specified, and my hope is that we can learn as we go. If you have any feedback, please comment below or feel free to DM me.

Quoting from the CGP:

May 2020 saw the genesis of Celo the platform. But even before then, Celo the community has been an ecosystem from people all over the world believing in the mission of Celo and contributing to it. While much focus has been on folks that are employed by cLabs, there is a lot of effort that is currently not being appropriately appreciated more broadly. This proposal attempts to create a small channel for the community to express gratitude to its contributors.

The current PR for the CGP can be found at CGP [0020]: Community Appreciation Gifts by nambrot · Pull Request #154 · celo-org/celo-proposals · GitHub.

Appreciate the feedback!

I’m definitely supportive of this proposal. Showing members of Celo community volunteering their time, that their contributions are valued and appreciated is the right thing to do :raised_hands:

These grass-root efforts are the bedrock of any viable and lively community.

Amen!

Is this getting rolled out? Feeling the need for this right now - would like to send a $CELO kudos to some folks who have been very helpful with the CELO owners Telegram & Discord channels.

CGP20 has passed, thank you for the confidence!

We adjusted the form to encourage folks to leave some contact method for follow-up questions. If you recently nominated someone, chances are you forgot to specify who you actually wanted to nominate, so please submit again :slight_smile:
