This proposal aims to gauge community sentiment regarding transitioning the current Discourse forums to Commonwealth and outline a possible timeline.
Commonwealth combines the core functionalities of Discourse with token-gating and governance interfaces such as polling and on-chain voting. An introduction to the Commonwealth platform is available at: Notion – The all-in-one workspace for your notes, tasks, wikis, and databases.
Including a comparison between the two platforms by the Commonwealth team: Notion – The all-in-one workspace for your notes, tasks, wikis, and databases.

Several questions were already asked by the community, these have been compiled here. Please leave any further questions below.
Q: If you want to log in with a validator account, it currently is not possible if you have a ledger as Secret uses a different cointype that does not have ledger support through Keplr.
A: StarShell has recently added ledger support and does support the Secret cointype. StarShell uses Keplr endpoints so it should work out of the box.
Q: Will it be possible to hide your address on the platform?
A: We are already working with SCRT Labs on a feature to not have addresses publicly viewable.
Q: Is there a main admin or owner?
A: There is no forum ‘owner’, we do have admins and moderators. Those roles are similar to Discourse and will be linked as well during the migration unless otherwise indicated.
Q: Does Commonwealth cost money?
A: No, not at the moment. The core functionality will be free forever.
