We have a check poll going about Social.coop Loomio Membership: https://www.loomio.org/d/pZuRV5gD/social-coop-loomio-membership/1
We will start removing members at the end of the check poll, so please let us know if you have any qualms about this process
@SocialCoop I want to know if I'm on the list of "inactive members" who will be culled at the end of this poll. Depending on the answer I may have a lot to say about it - and I intend to make it public.
You are not on 'the list' :) You were one of the early members to change your title, you probably just don't remember doing it.
To be clear, we are not TRYING to get rid of members that want to be on social.coop. The threshold for not being removed from the loomio group is very low: just saying "i would like to stay involved" is all that is required. We just don't know any other way of making sure of removing members that are no longer interested in this project.
My main concern with this method is that there was a period of a few months when I couldn't log in to Loomio because they determined they wouldn't support the browser I was using (Seamonkey, which is the continuation of the Mozilla suite & uses the same codebase as Firefox) & I couldn't... (1/n)
@emi @SocialCoop ...upgrade to a newer version or install Firefox, so I was effectively locked out of Loomio. Had my title not already been in my username this would have effectively put me on "the list" even though I'm fairly active on this account and I donate the maximum amount each month (in the form of an annual donation to minimize fees). My main point is that using Loomio activity as a proxy for interest in Social.Coop is a flawed process & needs to be reviewed (2/2).
@emi @SocialCoop Thanks for clearing up what the "list" is actually about. I was under the impression that it was about removing people from social.coop itself, not just from Loomio. Your method makes more sense now!
As for how I'd handle the situation, after thinking about it the only thing I'd do differently would be to broaden the topics that people are considered to be active in, perhaps going over the past six months instead of using one topic.
