Proposal Rules

3 min readJul 6, 2022
  1. Read the RVLT Rules of engagement (linked at the bottom of the article) before ever submitting a proposal. This gives guidelines of what can be considered at each ETH denominated amount.
  2. Think to yourself as you submit “would I pay somebody to do this if it was my own money?” If the answer is no, you should not submit at all, or reduce the amount.
  3. If you are unsure whether the amount you are asking for is too much, it probably is. You only have the chance to submit once per 5 days, so it would be best to go for the lower amount if you are on the fence, as it is likely to clear much quicker.
  4. Remember when approving that the end user only receives 40% of what they request. So asking for 1.5 ETH is the same as asking for 0.6 ETH or 0.25 ETH 0.1 etc.
  5. If you scoff at an action somebody has taken & think “that’s not worth that!”. Think to yourself, “have I actually gotten off of my arse to do something better? Or am I just saying it’s not worth it when in reality if you paid me X amount to do something, I wouldn’t be arsed?”
  6. Don’t dismiss how much confidence it takes to actually get somebody involved and out onto the streets. Be respectful. We need to incentivise people to get out there & talk about CULT & RVLT. Telling them their efforts are “pathetic” or their expectations are “crazy” may stop them completely. Speak to people with respect & come to an agreement on realistic expectations.
  7. Remember CULT & RVLT are apolitical. If an action is for or against a certain ideological viewpoint you hold & you do not agree with it, you can vote no, however expecting everybody to submit proposals that conform to one ideological viewpoint in a protocol that attracts revolutionaries is simply non sensical. Let the CULTmanders debate & if it is not your turn to be a CULTmander, respectfully stay out of it and trust that 500 people can come to a sensible consensus between them. If they don’t, well, they are replaced in a maximum of 10 days after the first “mistake” anyway.

Proposal Guidelines

Before or after?

You will find good intentions are not enough to submit a proposal unless you are willing to provide huge amounts of information to guarantee your use of those funds for the stated purpose, or you are a long term & trusted community member.

If you plan on doing a FUTURE event of which you cannot do without prior funding, you will find it much harder to acquire funding and as such will need to provide much more information to stand a chance

For example you may have to doxx for a proposal seeking funds for a future event. Rather than have an anonymous proposal passed on an action you have already taken and thus can provide evidence for.

One best practice for when you are submitting evidence is to designate a proposal round word for all submissions to include in their evidence & images E.g. Melon. 🍉

When you are submitting proposals, they would need to include a picture of the event/action and have one of the images including you (doesn’t have to have face) holding up a piece of paper with the date on it and the proposal round word. Or you could even sticker the word to yourself as you go about the action so it appears in all images.

This would provide evidence that you are indeed the person taking part in the action, reduce the chances that there is any repetition or plagiarism of past proposals.

Can I claim for my social media spreading & tweets?

Maybe. Have you spent time, above and beyond what the average person would expect in pushing and pursuing readers of, or spreading The Cult Manifesto?

Did you materially lose out on income or time from another source of money, due to focusing your time instead on spreading The Cult Manifesto?

Are you willing to share screenshots of your posts? You will find it harder to claim for Twitter for example than a YouTube video where you can easily demonstrate content and education plus reach.
