wow, whoa, who said anything about blockchain and such. Only pointed out the obvious regarding the function of marketing.
Why would you want to control that function of an entire decentralized community, if you had any good intentions?
especially given that you are aware that, you are aware, it is a decentralized community and centralized functions aren’t required, however, you are more than welcome to follow your guidelines on your own. Your notion, seemed so convincing that you felt it required be set as a standard that all should follow?
This is where you lost me and others, because your only dynamic was an attack on those whom you and others deemed, unworthy of supporting the community, with their art and graphics. Some of your supporters vehemently named called, character assassinated all against the rules of the the community paper, clearly outlined in the code of conduct.
You rebuttal, to ignore the damage done and impress questions upon me regarding what and where you said filter.
Your “Yes” men voters who seek to only find a method to sell their BitcoinZ at a higher market price are the ones that outlined filtering content.
read up and have a look, in support of you, and their comprehension of yours and MikeM’s proposal.
Premature delivery or not, this should have been developed with the entirety of the community and all it represents in mind. Disregarding all you claim to have known, you still produced what you did and someone made a proposal out of it.
If you were in favor of the community you would vote against this and say you don’t support it.
Your attitude however, is clear; state that the issue is at someone else’s door, and take zero ownership of your work, and do the right thing regarding what your proposal should be.
It’s simple, create a proposal that reflects your understanding of the community, with respect and regard for the benefiting long-term and short term of the community.
I can get slandered and called names or worse because the idea of BitcoinZ and the existence of it is beyond any control structure.
I don’t think you understand the problem you created or MikeM created by making this proposal. All you guys did was clearly, undermine the community, with a proposal like this one.
It feels like you are the type to create a bomb, then say you aren’t sorry that the bomb was created or used, regardless of the destruction it inflicts.
I think you should reflect your professionalism in your creativity, and if you created this proposal, it should have been designed from the outset, to remain in-line with rebranding.
The notion of controlling how the image of BitcoinZ is represented by a so called team, that does not answer to the community is a recipe for disaster, and you, have shown zero regard for this unnecessary piece of work, which could have been executed by you and your team, without the need for a proposal.
Many have said this above, yet Kasso and others seek, to undermine others.
Throughout history, people with a different perspective got called deluded, crazy, paranoid and they turned out to be right about a number of things; especially tyrants.
Logistics of the Marketing Process
With the use of a private forum channel, the Marketing Team would be able to create a new thread each time content is created. Discussion in that thread would be directed around the submitted content with the updated or altered version always appearing in the first post. Once the majority of the marketing team is in approval of the content, the content would be released into the wild and dissemination would take place as it already organically does.
This is not a marketing process. This is a control structure.
“the content would be released into the wild and dissemination would take place as it already organically does.”
the content dissemination into the wild, is done by those whose content, you called SCAMS and SCAM like.
Would they support your work? I don’t think so, not after insulting them.
The lack of support of your work may have led to this proposal and call for rebranding to eliminate the “fan art”. Why? Where is your work? I used to be able to get it from the marketing channel, now you want a private marketing channel?
How many private channels are there?
Organic growth is already happening, and its the fan art, that it usually starts off with.
I am support of BitcoinZ as many are due to it aiming towards decentralisation as one of the few and only coins without any control constructs, ie no one in charge, just people working within teams and pods, and together no matter what level of content they produce.
Your proposal undermines and disrespects others.
here you suggest that “fan art” is seen as a harmful impact on BTCZ community:
By creating a consistent and professional platform of marketing that comprises of imagery, articles, blog entries, press releases, and testimonials the message will be stronger and BitcoinZ will gain in image and exposure. A steady release of this consistent and upscale content will hopefully dilute the “fan art” that many see as a harmful impact on the BTCZ community. The team will provide PSD and Sketch files of templates that can be used for new marketing materials so they will all be consistent before it goes into the review process.”
This is not a marketing Strategy.
A marketing strategy comprises so much more than outlining a few things that have to be done with content?
You should know better, and there is no excuse that you didn’t have enough time, or someone prematurely released your work. If those where the things you had prepared and it was released, then it means that person also does not believe in what you were proposing or building to be in the best interest of the community.
especially given that you already had the Marketing strategy outlined so briefly. Maybe you have spent time researching and updating it since.
Consistent content is not what BitcoinZ is even about as a community-driven coin, yet, many coins that claim to have a community are governed by a team, applying the same structure of wall-street that we are all trying to get away from, with crypto as a conduit towards that end-goal.
Its funny, that limited knowledge and insight, ignorance related to much of what you proposed and created in your work, lead those with even less knowledge on marketing to insults those who were actively promoting BitcoinZ online across Reddit, Twitter, Facebook, and other social media platforms.
I hope you can consider that there is more to marketing and rebranding before you attempt to push another proposal through.
Please keep it inline with the community paper /white paper and you will have my support. If it seeks any control structures, this is where you will not have my vote.
The only coin to have a community without a leader in any function or area of its community. Truly decentralized!
That is the aim. It will be a long road however, BTCZ will prosper.
