It seems we, as a DAO, have been letting Alice pay out of pocket for Discord Server related expenses. The purpose of this proposal is simply to right this wrong independently of the ongoing debate on Mod Compensation.
In order to correct this quickly and provide some financial relief, I propose that we allocate 5000 MIM into a fund accessible by Alice and Time Cops. I would recommend we protect the fund via multi-sig between Alice, and maybe 2 other mods of her choosing.
In Discord, it was mentioned that the expenses have been around 150$ USD since she started paying for things herself. This could also serve as a small discretionary fund for basic expenses related to supporting the community without needing to ask again each time.
I felt a separate topic was necessary to segregate operational expenses from labor expenses. This should ensure no one from WL has to pay out of pocket for tooling used to support the community.
Lastly, a short recommendation here would be to follow some basic accounting practices - perhaps a Discord channel could be created where the mods who need to pay these expenses can simply share details about the transaction they will be performing.
Let me know what you think.
