About ChatGPT and AI Tools Usage

Hello everyone!

With the aim of continuing to improve the quality of the incentive program and participation in the forum, we will begin to detect and penalize content generated by ChatGPT.

During the last iteration of the program, we noticed that some comments were published with an obvious use of Artificial Intelligence tools. For this reason, we have decided not to count comments and proposals written with the use of Artificial Intelligence tools, as we do not believe that rewarding them is a good practice for the DAO. Additionally, as stated in the proposal, we may penalize users who abuse these tools.

If you have any further questions, please let us know.

Thanks for the update. This is a very relevant move, although I wonder how can we prove if something is generated with an LLM or not? Are you the sole authority on this?

Hey! Great question. During the month SEEDGov’s team reads and reviews every comment of the considered proposals to see if they are adding value to the proposal itself. Besides the fact that March was the first official iteration of the program, we have run some tests during December, January and February. Those 4 months collecting results sharpened our eyes to determine which comments are great, which are average and which are just…spam.

SEEDGov’s compromise with this program is to upgrade the quality of discussions on Arbitrum DAO. And the truth is discussions quality will not upgrade if there are delegates trying to lazily game the program with the usage of LLM tools.

As stated in the approved Tally Proposal

Incentive System Ban

Should a delegate or any community member attempt to deceive or game the incentive system, they will be banned. This decision is at the discretion of the program administrator.

We must remember that this system is experimental, and we hope for community members’ cooperation for its success.

Besides that, we are actively working on new ways to detect comments that are generated with LLM tools.

If you have any other doubts, please let us know.

For the representation of a non-English-speaking country, I think it’s not just only possible to refer to the more itemised weights of participation, but more attention needs to be paid to the number of addresses commissioned, and the number of scopes represented, to take a simple address, which is completely different if the commissioned person represents an address of 1 versus 1,000.

ABOUT DELEGATES INCENTIVE PROGRAM KYC PROCESS

Dear Delegates

We wanted to provide you with a brief update regarding the KYC process for the Delegates Incentive Program.

We’ve been in conversations with Arbitrum Foundation about the Delegates Incentive Program and the KYC process for payments to be available for release, as stated in the approved proposal.

As April progresses, there’s a lot of activity surrounding the LTIPP, ARDC, and their corresponding KYC processes. So the processing time for the Delegates Incentive Program payments may be extended from our initial estimations.

We’ve been receiving a lot of questions about payment releases, and yes, we understand that this delay was unexpected. However, we’re not the ones doing the KYC process since this is handled by the Foundation, and we are doing our best to make this process as smooth as possible.

We appreciate your patience during this time.

Thank you,

SEEDGov
