New Topic Requests and Moderator Onboarding Process


Kauri is here for the community to help each other use existing components and protocols more effectively. Kauri becomes more useful as more topics are written about and interconnections between projects are made. Initially we are being careful to only let high quality projects onto kauri to maintain standards and make sure early users are engaging with technology that they can develop with today.


The basic criteria for creating a new topic on kauri are the following:
  1. There are usable components or protocols publicly live (test or mainnet), which users can utilise in developing or running dapps
  2. The project has some initial documentation or a read me
  3. The project has an active community
  4. The project maintainers are willing to engage in topic moderation*
  5. Preference, in early stages, given to projects committed to OpenSource *A note on moderation: We are exploring ways to make moderation less rigid by building in mechanisms like curation markets. In our first iteration all topic need one or several moderators from the project maintainers.
