I am submitting this updated application in response to the revised job description, which now aims to establish an interim position that develops a further expanded role. My original application can be found here [link]. I have made updates to align my application accordingly.

Hey, I’m ShfRyn, a 32-year-old node operator with a strong focus on RPL holdings. I bring a wealth of experience in web design, development, and online marketing. Throughout my career, I have specialized in business development, process building for a web development agency, and effectively coordinating employee development. Additionally, I hold a Scrum Master certification, further demonstrating my expertise in project management methodologies.

I initially joined the GMC in March. I took the initiative to assume administrative duties and provide crucial support in various areas. This expanded my responsibilities to include becoming a community liaison, updating and organizing spreadsheets, facilitating meetings, and driving governance initiatives, such as implementing rolling awards and retro cap adjustments. Over the past few months, I dedicated approximately 2 hours daily to successfully fulfill these responsibilities.

Understanding Of The Role
Having actively performed the GMC admin role, I possess a unique understanding of its intricacies and challenges. This firsthand experience equips me with a comprehensive perspective, making me highly qualified to contribute effectively to its further development. Here is my plan to document and enhance the role:

  1. Development and Implementation of Governance Initiatives

    • Enhancing the rolling awards system to optimize efficiency and effectiveness.
    • Implementing adjustments to the retrospective awards cap to improve accounting efficiency.
  2. Creation of an Administrative Processes Handbook

    • Establishing a comprehensive schedule encompassing payments, awards, nominations, and other GMC events.
    • Defining communication standards across platforms such as the DAO forum and Discord.
    • Establishing clear consensus guidelines for committee members when making different decisions.
    • Designing an onboarding process for new committee members and GMC admins.
    • Establish a comprehensive framework that outlines the GMC members’ involvement and contributions, enabling the community to gain transparency into each committee member’s specific activities.
    • Outlining the expanded GMC admin role responsibilities, including:
      • Ensuring equitable participation and fostering respectful discussions within the committee.
      • Maintaining accurate records and documentation, including scoring processes and relevant spreadsheets.
      • Leading discussions and drafting official GMC statements and proposals on the DAO forum.
      • Effectively communicating with members and the wider community.
      • Providing timely reminders for deadlines and important action items.
      • Collaborating with the community to enhance GMC processes and communicating improvements effectively.

If given the opportunity to serve in this position, I am committed to facilitating unbiased and fair discussions. To avoid any conflicts of interest, I am prepared to relinquish my voting power. During my term, I would be committed to actively seek recommendations and requests from the GMC to continuously refine and optimize my proposed blueprint for the expanded role.


I think you’d be a great candidate for this position.

The application window for the position of GMC Administrator has now closed, and the GMC is pleased to announce that ShfRyn has been selected for the role.

I, ShfRyn, am thrilled and grateful for this opportunity. Effective immediately, I have made the decision to relinquish my voting power. Per RPIP-10, the following will take effect until the seat is filled:

If a vacancy occurs within six months of the previous selection, the next highest vote recipient from the previous election SHALL be offered the seat, with the MC going down the list of vote-receiving nominees until the position is filled.

The offered seat SHOULD be accepted or rejected within 1 week; if it is rejected, or there is no response, the MC SHALL continue down the list.

As previously discussed, I will be spearheading three important initiatives: modifying the retrospective award cap, implementing a rolling awards cycle, and expanding the GMC Administrator’s responsibilities.

In addition, I will be taking on liaison duties, and documenting and building a robust process for the GMC Administrator role further. Throughout this process, I greatly appreciate and value the feedback from our community.

Together, we can make significant strides in improving the GMC and ensuring its continued success. :tada:
