I propose we update the current primary document of the T2CR as follows:
“Requests are not to be denied listing based on token creation date, token swap status (with non-ethereum chains), usecase or token activity”
I’ve seen some cases lately that try to determine the relevance of a listing in the T2CR. Some argue some requests should be denied because the token requested is simply too old, not used anymore, swapped to another chain etc. These entries however might still hold value in the T2CR for historical dapps or other research/explorer dapps. We need a policy rule that makes this clear.
“All submissions must be tokens with smart contracts deployed on the Ethereum (ETH) mainnet.”
Although reasonably implied it wouldn’t hurt to explicitly state all tokens should be deployed on the Ethereum mainnet. In case of a chain split we follow the chain that inherits the ETH ticker from the community.
“The token symbol should be a transparent PNG of at least 200x200 px.”
“The token symbol should be a transparent PNG of at least 128x128px and at most 2500x2500px”
The motivation for this rule change is simple: there are currently 78 entries in the T2CR that violate the 200x200px rule. Changing the minimum requirements to 128x128px would lower that number to 17 violations (which would still need to be removed). Most 128x128px symbols look fine on screen.
Furthermore I propose a limit on the maximum dimensions of a symbol. There are already cases like noku that load slow from my end, and I consider myself to have quite a good internet connection. When considering the projected use cases for the T2CR I don’t feel like a higher quality is desired/necessary. (implementing a maximum of 2500x2500 will put 6 entries in violation if accepted)
“Project names and tickers should be carefully checked.”
This rule is vague and moreover contradicts: “The name should be the most commonly used name […]” by implying the T2CR requires a project name. To prevent confusion we should remove this rule.
