Random Jury groups

Based on our dark horse idea. , we believe Daemo would be organized into cohorts of workers working with different requesters. We propose the following system to deal with issues raised by cohorts & requesters within Daemo. Every week, based on the reputation of worker as well as requester, sets of random jury are created. Different issues are then assigned to different jury groups.

Looking at scenarios in detail:

  • If a worker has his/her work rejected – he can either raise and issue or accept that his work got rejected. If he does raise an issue, the associated requester is also alerted asked state his/her reason for rejecting the work. This issue is then assigned to a jury group at random. The Jury can consist of 5 people (3 requesters, 2 workers or 3 workers, 2 requesters) who get to see the two arguments, not know who raised the issue and rule in favour of either the worker or the requester. If the issue isn’t solved in 3 days, it is moved to another jury group. If the worker or requester is unsatisfied with the verdict, they can appeal to another jury group. However, they’d be given a chance to appeal only once.
  • If a requester raises an issue with a worker who consistently produces bad work – he can raise and issue and the worker would be alerted regarding it and be given an opportunity to justify his/her work. Once again, this gets assigned a random jury group and can decide who to rule in favour of.
  • Issues regarding the platform can be passed on to the support team of the platform

Random Jury Groups


Jury group

Each week, the requesters & workers who have a reputation greater than a particular value get assigned to Jury group. They are unaware of the remaining members of the jury group, they get to see both sides of the argument and take an independent decision of who is right/wrong – and pass on their opinion. Once all members of the jury have finished putting up their answers and justification, the verdict is sent to the respective requester and worker

Issues with this idea

  • There needs to be able to deal with instances that a person picks a random side – requester or worker, instead of going through the arguments and thinking the problem through
  • A new worker or requester will have to work hard to be part of the a jury circle
  • It isn't necessary that everyone of a jury group will respond, hence there is a good chance issues will get pushed around a lot
