An Epoch is a period when your Circle members can record contributions, leave notes, and make GIVE allocations. Circle admins create Epochs and vary in duration from 1 to 100 days.
At the beginning of each Epoch, your Circle will ask you to answer two questions, which will help your colleagues determine how to GIVE to you.
Opt-In / Opt-Out
Your statement is public for anyone in the Circle. In addition, the Epoch Statement details the work you have done this month or clarifies work that the DAO wants to compensate.
It's best to summarize your work so that anyone from your team can understand what you did and its impact/goal. Quantify your work where ever possible for better understanding. Example Pushed 6 Github issues to allow us to unblock back-end work and resolve bugs impacting the use.
Created the marketing plan for Coordinape, sent 6,000 tweets, and received 12,000 RTs

If you Opt-Out, you are signaling that you have other income streams in your Circle which are sufficient for you, and you should not be compensated in Coordinape. It will be impossible for others to give to you.
If you Opt-In, you will be able to receive GIVE. You may use the Profile Statement to detail why.
You can change settings throughout the Epoch or future Epochs by accessing your profile on the Allocate Page to change them. \
For example, if you change your status to Opt-Out after receiving GIVE during an epoch, any GIVE you have accrued will return to its senders.
It is also possible that your circle admin may force you to opt out if you are not eligible to receive GIVE.
