Summary: we believe that the support and trust of the community is important to the Goldfinch team so this proposal has the main goal: define and check 2656 appeals (without tier) of users, who did not receive awards for participation in Goldfinch Flight Academy. The basic theses on the workflow and evaluation of works are described below. As well as compensation to leaders for reviewing appeals for verified appeals, a system that excludes fraud involving one or more leaders of appeals, fines for dishonest performance of duties by leaders, work schedule and other subtleties of the workflow.
The target and motivation:
Thousands of students of the Flight Academy who did not receive an award filed appeals in order to get the awards they deserved. The Appeal Leaders Team intends to investigate each of the appeals in order to look for honest participants who lost their rewards by mistake. Also our aim is to detect scammers who created more than one account or steal other participant’s work, passing them off as their own in order to receive more rewards.
Verification process and reward levels:
We believe that the development and implementation of new criteria for evaluating work will cause frustration for many participants.
Previously, the Goldfinch team developed a transparent and fair system for evaluating the work of participants in the Flight Academy, and we will adhere to it.
You can get acquainted with the criteria and distribution of awards at this link -
Tier rewards and payout method:
6 - Completed most assessments and a limited number of tasks - 50 GFI * 1 month
5 - Completed assessments as well as a few tasks and challenges - 150 GFI. 50 GFI * 3 months
4 - Completed assessments as well as many tasks and challenges - 350 GFI. 50 GFI * 7 months
3 - Completed assessments as well as most tasks and challenges - 700 GFI. 50 GFI * 14 months
2 - Completed assessments and almost all tasks and challenges - 1500 GFI. 83,3 GFI * 18 months
1 - Completed all assessments tasks and challenges, and earned top scores - 2500 GFI. 138,8 GFI * 18 months
Levels 6,5,4 and 3 will receive a fixed monthly amount of tokens - 50 GFI for 1, 3, 7 and 14 months, respectively.
Levels 2,1 will get rewards according to the following formula - 1/18 of the tokens every month for a year and a half.
*Payments may vary depending on the quality and quantity of the appeal.The final decision will be made by the Goldfinch project team.
The severity of the evaluation criteria:
The grading system will meet the needs of users and allow the chance of “accidental error”.
For example: a candidate completed all the requirements for receiving the 4th level of awards, but in one of the weekly tests he made a mistake and received 15/20 correct answers instead of the required 16/20. Such cases will be brought up at the weekly meeting, which will be held once a week, where the opinion of the majority - 3/5 of the leaders of appeals will be taken into account.
It is possible to interchange the value of different modules and tasks of the appeal, depending on the total contribution.
For example: The candidate did not complete 1 of the 5 required tasks, but still diligently completed additional tasks to create educational content every week. At the discretion of the reviewer, 1 additional work may replace 1 missed compulsory work, and so on.
Weekly meetings will take place every Saturday to report back to the community on Monday on the number of verified appeals and reward levels allocated.
Accounting for verified appeals:
For each leader, a special document will be allocated on the cloud with access to the administration, in which he will indicate all verified appeals with a decision made on them. It will also list disputed decision appeals that must be submitted to the weekly leader meeting. Such records will help make the appeals review process as transparent as possible, and will also allow the administration to monitor the progress and effectiveness of each leader individually.
Monday: Working day + progress report
Tuesday: Working day
Wednesday: Working day
Thursday: Working day
Friday: Working day
Saturday: Leadership meeting, report preparation for Monday
Sunday is a day off
*Working day - regular review of appeals.
Compensation to Leaders of Appeal:
Each of the leaders will work at their own pace, it would be better to choose an hourly wage - 10 USDC/hour.
The maximum number of working hours per week for each Leader is 40 hours.For the convenience of counting hours, the Leader can use the time tracker and provide a report on the work done at the first request of any Leader or administrator. Payment will be made every Monday to each Leader’s wallet.
So that the review of appeals does not turn into a competition between Leaders, I propose the following: if one of the Leaders has checked his appeals, and the other has not yet, the leader can check the appeals from another list. But first he must tell all the Leaders about it.
The system of penalties for leaders of appeals:
At any time, one of the administrators may ask the Appeal Leader to account for any of the awarded (or not assigned) levels of awards. If it turns out that the level of awards was assigned (or not assigned) without reason, then the leader receives warning. The Leader cannot receive more than 3 warnings per 100 audited appeals. For violation of any of the established rules, the Leader will be punished by the administration. It can be either deprivation of compensation or exclusion from the program.
