The Aave DAO community discussed a proposal by Fig to improve the voting structure, suggesting Aave Improvement Proposal (AIP) votes should not start or end on weekends to avoid failed votes. While some members disagreed, attributing failed votes to voter apathy and potential complexity, others suggested a fixed voting day each week, citing successful examples from other protocols; the need for a more efficient governance process was agreed upon, but the best approach remains debatable.
The discussion primarily revolved around the proposal by Fig to improve the voting structure for the Aave DAO, in response to two failed votes that didn't meet the quorum threshold1. The proposal suggested that Aave Improvement Proposal (AIP) votes should not start or end on weekends, unless in an emergency, with Mondays and Tuesdays being the proposed starting days. This was based on data analysis showing that AIPs fail twice as often when slated to end on the weekend versus weekdays1.
However, MatthewGraham disagreed with the proposal, attributing failed votes to voter apathy rather than the day of the week the vote falls on2. Bgdlabs also expressed concerns that enforcing creation days for proposals could introduce more complexity than it solves3. Both MatthewGraham and Bgdlabs emphasized the importance of delegates closely following community discussions on the forum2,3. Fig agreed with these points but also highlighted the need for frameworks to encourage more participation and attract diverse delegates4.
Kene_StableLab suggested that having votes on a specific day each week could help address the issue of Aave votes failing to reach quorum. They cited Balancer’s Governance Schedule as a successful example of this approach, and mentioned Optimism and Jet Protocol as other protocols with similar systems5. The discussion concluded with a general consensus on the need for a more efficient governance process, although the best approach to achieve this remains a topic of debate.
