Following team introductions, Noah highlighted a few key points:
1. excited for the new team, talent, and belief in Gutter and the community
team is new to working together and is learning to work together remotely and on different schedules
will get better each day and we're here to win and do this for the community
this is now a larger group getting organized and committed to community
2. acknowledged mistakes made in the first 30+ days, including the Twitter situation of being locked out of the OG @GutterCatGang account and new @GutterDev account
"Twitter situation has been really uncomfortable and I've felt a lot of pressure not having a Twitter presence" from the OG account, which he's been locked out of for several weeks
Opened @GutterDev account as a way to communicate, and as broader umbrella for Gutter, but it's not a rebrand.
Acknowledged he could have communicated better, and apologized for lack of clarity to the community; committed to establishing processes
Indicated he received the Gold checkmark on @GutterDev account and has been emailing, calling, and seeking solution to get @GutterCatGang account back.
Following the team and Noah's introductions, he opened up to the space for questions and comments. Key questions are unpacked below:
1. What can we expect rolling out in remaining days of Q4 of 2023 and what's ahead in Q1 2024?
Noah indicated that the team is putting processes and content in place on comms and editorial calendar: "You'll see ways for the holders and community to use their assets and create."
"We will develop the website to a true entertainment platform for creators, clubs, and holders to use unique tools."
"Connection between community, holders, and creators is going to get stronger," and how holders are involved in activations is important to Noah.
Exploring collabs and partnerships, and working across other communities
"I believe there's a product we can bring to life."
Also noted that he's looking ahead to IRL events
2. Will Gutter World scenes continue? Will art continue to be created? Will the same artist from original Gutter pieces stay with us?
Will continue to build on the existing Gutter Art as well as Website
Currently working with the original artist
Noah said, "Gutter City has huge potential. We can grow it, with surprises. Clubs can have their own areas within the city." He sees potential in merging the brand with IRL.
W0rmiOo indicated that he'd like to see Gutter officially support art, comics, and IP from people in the community, similar to Marvel or DC comics.
3. From the merch side, what's Gutter's thought on trait-based merch?
Want to be mindful of intentional merch that benefits Gutter and the holders
Clothing brand isn't off the mark, and needs to be high quality; also needs to get in front of people and not be token-gated
Trait-based merch could be bridged to external web2 audiences
Community can also run with things, with Gutter's support
The team closed out indicated that spaces will continue, and that community members should continue with questions and constructive feedback to help the team grow.
The Gutter Cat Times will continue to cover spaces and bring you news from the Gutter. Follow along @guttercattimes on Twitter for more.
