Title: Eliminate the Discord and Telegram One-Month Retention Policy
Author: Second Set Maze
This proposal aims to eliminate Aura’s one-month document retention policy for Discord and Telegram content so that content is not deleted after 30 days and posts remain on Discord and Telegram servers and channels. Currently, content is deleted every month.
- emphasize our commitment to effective records retention
- ensure that critical records are available to meet community needs
- optimize the use of space
- ensure that outdated and useless records are destroyed
- minimize the cost of record retention
- comply with legal requirements
Aura community members are sophisticated and knowledgeable. Aura Discord is a place where conversations must be comfortable and encouraged. Participants use the channels to learn, educate, brainstorm, debate, and connect.
DeFi evolves rapidly, and experienced Aura members understand the importance of reflection and the value afforded from revisiting prior posts and interactions. This option and utility will be enabled by eliminating a retention policy that deletes user content every 30 days.
Our vibrant and active community can pin posts, create threads, archive channels, and utilize forum features. Aura’s savvy contributors can also employ search terms and filters when researching channels and posts.
Aura Discord has rules for conduct. Community participation must abide by the rules accepted upon entry to the server. The rules will be published to a dedicated channel so as to be accessible by server members at any time.
Per guiriba 01/08/2024, “we don’t have a channel with the rules, but when a person enters on Aura Discord, the rules appear for them to accept and enter the server … if the community thinks it’s worthwhile, we can create a channel for it”
If legal compliance and cost concerns (Background reasons 5 and 6) persist, let’s outline and detail them in the discussion.
Should this Proposal be approved, the following changes will be implemented:
- Aura’s retention policy will be eliminated effective immediately.
- A Discord rules channel will be created
This temperature check will be live for approximately 3 days for community discussion. It can then be revised into an AIP for Snapshot live vote.
This vote will be a single-choice vote. You may vote “For” or “Against” this proposal.
A “For” vote in this proposal is a vote to eliminate the Discord and Telegram one-month retention policy.
