Team Action + Speculation
Poopie was in discord his past Friday and had lots of great insight on: team scaling, Doodles 2, DoodlePutt, and beyond.
Team Scaling, at the moment the hiring process is going quite slowly, they have hired an entire time to simply sort and filter applications. Jordan shared a screenshot that showed there were 1935 applications to review. At the current stage the team is at in product development of Doodles 2, Space Doodles, and beyond, the team can't spend much more than a quarter of each day interviewing, in short, it's gonna take some time. We also did learn that 776 absolutely helps with talent acquisition, mega bullish.
The methodical speed to onboard new heads to Doodles HQ lends itself to the fact that "we need experts, not vibe captains." Quality control is in full effect, the team is being very meticulous with talent acquisition, and it's safe to say that we will be very happy with those who arise victorious through this hiring gauntlet.
When propositioned by community members stating that they hope the team does not rush out Doodles 2 at the bottom of the bear market and instead chose to launch during more of a sweet spot, Poopie agreed that the team feels the same sentiment and said that due to this actuality there will be a form of closed beta in various stages of it's launch. After some bits of prodding and poking Poopie stated "...If you are wondering what I'm up to - we're building doodles 2. It's a huge endeavor but we have testnet contracts working/deployed + and an innovative solution for interactive animations rendered in mobile/ desktop web browsers w/o Unity or w/e." A fun fact we learned is that not only will Doodles 2 be animated, there will be animated traits. This should get our synapses firing. For those who were present in the discord during this discussion Poopie dropped and very quickly deleted a prototype Doodles 2 animation demonstrating the technological side of scaling the size. The artwork still needs some tweaking to adjust alongside, but we did get to see it, and it was very exciting. Before you ask, WE WILL NOT LEAK, Doodlifts does not want to get banned by King Poop. 😅😅
When asked about Doodles 2 launching on Instagram and possibly becoming the "go-to pfps" on their new NFT marketplace, Poopie said that toasty's thread is a spectacle. Etai stated that there must be some legal boudaries to why Poopie could not reply to the IG integration allegations, and Poopie just said "hehehe"
To clarify one of Poopie's statements, he said something to the effect that instagram has "avatars but nobody knows." Some people misinterpreted this as doodles are secret instagram avatars. This is not the case, he meant that instagram already has a bitmoji like function that nobody uses.
As per the Doodles.app website and Doodles Official Twitter we see the team is hosting DoodlePutt December 2nd and 3rd Noon to 10pm. However Poopie mentioned "It's cold in Miami, bring your jackets for the afterparty." Every Doodles event that has been hosted so far has included a live music performance/afterparty and it appears like this years Art Basel will follow suit. In Miami, we do a little afterparty.
In addition for folks like JKB and us here at TGID, Poopie said "we're doing stuff to support spaces hosters. ppl will see at basel." As we have seen that JKB will be hosting the DoodlePutt livestream that is a testament to his word. They have such an incredible opportunity and its safe to say that this is just the beginning for IRL opportunities slated to our community's spaces hosts. LFDOOD. We LOVE to see it.
Additionally, if anyone is curious about the production quality of DoodlePutt. "We spent millions, it pushes everything we've done so far to the next level." - Poopie
There has been chatter in think tank for quite sometime about restructuring how the Doodlebank work but it has had a fair deal of push back. Poopie mentioned that the rules and functionality of Doodlebank is "getting a total revamp." To add one, he stated "we're adding a temporary role to design new governance!" OUT OF NOWHERE, for the folks at Rainbow Launch and the Doodles community at large, expect a substantial revamp of the Doodlebank!
Poopie teased an idea that he'd like to see "Doodles sharktank using doodlebank funds wit holders voting for capital allocation." We definitely think something as captivating as this idea could move leaps and bounds to increase voter participation for proposal and lead to greater disbursement of funding to community endeavors. Having holder prepare for a sharktank style audition would be a change of pace, but it would be exciting andexhilirating. One of the main critiques of the current DB condition is to galvanize holders to get out and vote, adding something sensational like a live show that permitted individuals to: A. be presented a pitch by the community creators, B. vote on multiple proposals on the same day, C. building the Doodlebank voting process into the Doodles storytelling universe, all sounds good to us!

Community Spaces/Threads + Perspectives
New crypto news weekly update 🧵
Speculation surrounding why Burnt Toast did not partner with Instagram pilot of their NFT marketplace. Could be due to the fact that he does not have time for any side projects. Could be because Doodles may be looking/ already be arranging integrating Doodles 2 into instagram as 'avatars' and 'digital collectibles'.
This thread dives much deeper and posits a quite plausible connection.

This was a piece we have gotten teasers about, and have been eagerly anticipating. Juiced made this animation for Toronades depicting his Doodle on horseback headed to the castle floating on the edge of the Doodleverse. WE GET TO GO INSIDE THE CASTLE, and it is truly spectacular, nothing short of magical. Once Toro gets inside, he drops his sword into its holding shelf, confetti and music emote, and the dance party begins. Hands down one of the best pieces of the Doodles storytelling universe to date. Bravo!
