Doodlebank 1.0 is a supercharged governance client optimized for proposal discussion, voting, and rich context to scale participation in the Doodlebank ecosystem.
Doodlebank 1.0 streamlines Doodlebank governance by phasing out Discourse for discussion and building social features on top of Snapshot for voting/delegation.
The platform will be built by Collective. Our team was recently awarded with funding through Prop House to build a Nouns governance client — House of Nouns. We’re asking for 8 ETH for full-stack development, hosting, and white-glove support to tailor this platform for Doodles.
What is Doodlebank 1.0?
Doodlebank 1.0 is the hub for all things Doodlebank, including discussion around ideas and proposals, and voting. The platform streamlines the process for ideas to get to vote, then execution. It includes organized proposal discussion, rich voter data and delegation, web3-native social features, and lots more — all under one roof.
Key features include:
- Discussion: discussion on every proposal to replace the need for Discourse and scattered Discord messages
- Feelers: temperature check ideas with a simple upvote/downvote mechanic and get feedback with commenting before submitting a proposal
- Summaries: one-sentence proposal summaries are automatically displayed
- Social voter delegation: user dashboards show an individual’s activity in governance and allow votes to be delegated to them
- Data: enriched context and data around proposals and voters
- Notifications: optional email notifications for new proposals and trending ideas
- Rich media: embed media and social posts in ideas and proposals
- Rewards: badges, profile stats (i.e. Discord and voter participation), and POAPs for participation in governance, in an effort to recognize and increase voter turnout
Here’s a prototype of user profiles we’re building for DoodleBank 1.0. It includes governance participation, social stats, community engagement, and easy access to delegate votes for every holder. In the future, we will surface profile badges and POAPs earned through rewards here.
We are open to hearing other data the community would want to surface here.
Why is this necessary?
The Doodlebank is a key part of what makes Doodles special. A Doodle is not just a Doodle — it’s access to propose and vote on community ideas that proliferate the Doodles brand via Doodlebank.
A revamped Doodlebank governance platform is necessary to increase governance participation and incentivize builders in the Doodles community in the long-term.
Here’s how we will look to solve the most pressing issues with Doodlebank 1.0.
Problem: The path for an idea to go to vote then execution is unclear.
Solution: Doodlebank 1.0 will come loaded with a comment section under feelers & proposals, so the community can help refine them. Highest upvoted ideas can be fast-tracked to a proposal.
Additionally, before the launch of Doodlebank 1.0, we will work closely alongside the Doodles team and community to standardize a process to get to a vote. Ideally, the Doodlebank process will be clearly surfaced on Doodlebank 1.0.
Problem: Proposals are boring walls of text
Solution: Our solution is two-fold. First, one-sentence summaries are generated for every idea and proposal. Second, feelers and proposals can easily be embedded with media and social posts, to make them easier to consume.
Problem: Ideas, discussion, and participation are scattered across platforms, which leads to community dissonance.
Solution: Doodlebank 1.0 is the set point for discussion around ideas and proposals — which is currently scattered across Discourse and Discord. It will also host final voting, via integrated Snapshot API. Less places for voters to track is a win for everyone.
Problem: Many holders don’t know about active votes.
Solution: Doodlebank 1.0 will offer optional email alerts about live proposal votes and trending feelers from the day of launch.
Problem: There is no immediate incentive to participate in Doodlebank.
Solution: In addition to aforementioned reputation statistics for participation, we will support badges and POAPs for voting (and voting consistently) — ideally created by artists in the community or proposers themselves. We believe this is a first step, but we are very open to additional ideas to reward participation.
We’re asking for 8 ETH to support full-stack software development of Doodlebank 1.0, managed and hosted by the Collective engineering team. Our team will tailor this platform specifically to the Doodlebank’s needs.
The cost includes the first year of access and hosting. After the first year, Doodlebank can vote to renew the hosting costs at a lower cost (~1-2 ETH).

Collective is a web3 social platform for NFT DAOs to empower their members. In July, we rebranded from MomentRanks (you may know us from NBA Top Shot) to focus on supporting NFT DAOs.
We will be constantly listening to conversations around Doodlebank and Doodles governance to build a custom platform custom for Doodles.
Our proposal to build a governance platform for Nouns — House of Nouns — was recently awarded 20 ETH of funding through Prop House. The Collective team will provide development, backend features (discussion, data, authentication, etc.), and hands-on support for Doodlebank 1.0.
If you’ve made it this far, thank you so much for reading. We’ll be actively checking out potential changes and any ideas that the Doodles community would want to see in a white-labeled governance platform.
Our goal is to tailor this to the Doodlebank’s specific needs, and see the Doodlebank thrive through community support. Thank you again!
