Summary of Epoch Reviews

How did ELI5 reviewers describe this tool?

It's a DAO membership, proposal, and treasury management tool that "just works." It's one of only a few fully built-out options for starting a DAO. It's genuinely decentralized with unique features such as ragequit, and once set up it's largely automated (does not require admin). It has a simple UI/UX. It's customizable and extensible (shamans).
It's THE place where teams and communities can come together to share ideas and work in a super user friendly way offering a superb user experience.
Samudai is a centralized hub for DAOs that put the most commonly utilized DAO tools and processes under the same dashboard. Its highly customizable thanks to the multiple integrations if offers via widgets.
The main idea shared across all Eli5 descriptions from all reviewers is that Colony is a tool that allows organizations to organize. Organize what?: payments & treasury, decision making, & reputation.

What did ELI5 reviewers like about this tool?

ELI5ers loved that DAOhaus is customizable, modular, and no/low-code. The extension (shamans) allow for fine tuning of the platform to suite a DAOs needs. It offers true decentralization without need for admin after launch. The reviewers appreciated the unique Moloch philosophy and features such as ragequit and guild kick. It is easy to join a DAO on DAOhaus and many features were well-liked such as voting and non-voting shares, the proposal process (quorum, sponsorship, voting, grace period), and the built-in vote delegation. The platform offers many options for treasury management and the SAFE integration was welcomed. Overall the UI/UX simple and streamlined and the developer team behind the open-sourced platform was responsive and available to assist with issues.

The user experience is by far the most liked feature of Common Ground, followed by an having Mobile capabilities that also offer a great user experience. Almost all reviewers used similar words to describe the UI: clean, intuitive, and beautiful.

The one-stop-shop concept is very real with Samudai. A very intuitive navigation and high customization of the dashboard and platform in general makes Samudai a product that can be adopted by several different types of DAOs.

Colony reputation-based system seems to be the #1 aspect that everyone liked. This goes hand by hand with the lazy consensus mechanism. In general, how Colony allows true contributors to a DAO to participate in a smooth fashion.

According to ELI5 reviewers, how could this tool be improved?

ELI5 reviewers shared that the UI was difficult to understand at times for the non-developer (i.e. date/time conversions). Other aspects such as locating proposal descriptions, understanding proposal steps was also difficult for on-technical users. On occasion we experienced odd behaviors in the sequence of events due to UI indicators changing for the entire history of proposals if the governance settings were changed, rather than updating only current and future information. This makes it difficult to understand the historical record of the DAO and sometimes caused confusion during the proposal pass/fail process. An open-source library of shamans would be helpful. Moloch language for common features is confusing and intimidating for new users; documentation in general could be improved, from summoning a DAO to navigating the interface. Allow for delegation of votes to multiple representatives. A DAO search or hub like created in V2 would be great to assist in learning about other DAOs.

Simplifying the sign-in process, and fixing minor glitches that forces the user to reconnect under some circumstances. Including notifications. Also, improving the use of GIFs and the processes and documentation involved in publishing articles & announcements.

Most reviewers are giving importance to improving the UI/UX more. Because Samudai can do so many things, the information put in front of you as end-user is a little overwhelming.

Part of the suggestions is offering users the ability to customize their dashboard according to their preferences. Also minor adjustments to the UI.

Another suggestion for improvement is more about adding more tools and capabilities to Samudai (although this talks about how users relly like what they saw, and will like to see more tools that they use in other DAOs to be added to Samudai).

i.e. Adding voting capabilities inside Samudai to allow for voting in Grants proposals.

Better notification & communication mechanisms. Cosmetic improvements to the UI, and enhancements to UX. Mobile support seems to be a very interesting point for many. It can still use a bit more simplicity in how information is presented to the user. From the numbers in a more human-readable format to the words used and even the font size.
