We have a few social.coop office hours coming up over the next two weeks- hope to see many more social.coop faces :)

3/24 @ 22:00 UTC: CO-OPOLY game session

3/31 @ 16:00 UTC: Intro to XMPP (non-tech)

Check the announcements for links to the meet.coop rooms!

Social.Coop "office hours" (we need a better name) are a space for members of social.coop to host discussion about anything of interest to them. If you are interested in sharing something you are doing, thinking, enjoying, dreaming, playing... check out this thread: loomio.org/d/D2YHLxq8/social-c

Social.Coop members -- tired of using surveillance capitalist platforms for video conferencing? Sign up for your account on our new BigBlueButton instance. Open source and cooperative.


A reminder that today March 3rd at 9pm ET/March 4th at 02:00 UTC we will be hosting a discussion of "Cecosesola: Towards a Collective Mind"

This Thursday at 10am EST/15:00 GMT, we'll be kicking off a weekly(-ish) series of "Member Office Hours" with @mattcropp hosting a conversation on real estate co-ops in this meet.coop room: ca.meet.coop/b/mik-cuv-85e

The idea for this series is to create space for members to host conversations on topics of interest to them and the community, so if you have an idea you'd like to host a chat about, please pick a week and add it to the scheduing spreadsheet linked in the announcements!

social.coop meta, time poll 

Hey folks, heads up that there's a time poll active for the next few days to nail down a date for a follow-up call to explore a few of the themes that emerged from the recent strategy sessions. If you'd like to have your availability inform the scheduling process, please respond in the next few days!


We have a check poll going about Social.coop Loomio Membership: loomio.org/d/pZuRV5gD/social-c

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

CWG Ops Team Minutes are up:

Have forgotten to do this for the past few months, but will try to back post in the coming weeks before our next Ops meeting in November!

social.coop meta, strategy summit 

Reminder: The second of our "Strategy Summits" will take place Saturday, 9/25 from 12pm-1:30pm US Eastern Time via this link: ca.meet.coop/b/oli-kzr-cyv-rke

Looking forward to the conversation!

social.coop meta, strategy summits 

Hey folks - if you'd like to attend one of our instance's "strategy summits" later this month, please RSVP to this Loomio Poll: loomio.org/d/6SoVapyj/2020-soc

Is anyone else at @SocialCoop having difficulty uploading media to a post? I seem to be getting a 500 error at the moment.

It's back to @emi for moderation duties.

My goal for this week is to finally catch up on cleaning up our membership list on loomio.

Many of you have gotten an email from me requesting that you add a "title" to your social.coop loomio profile. If you haven't gotten an email, it means you have already done this! Thank you!

If you're a member of social.coop but haven't yet created or accessed our loomio group, please let me know! We'd love to have you join in the discussion there :)

Hello! It's moderator @michaelafisher on for the week. Happy to see you all :TwinPines: 😉

Another gentle nudge for folks to update their loomio account with their social.coop handle :)

To do this, go to the MEMBERS tab on the social.coop loomio home page.

Find your name and click the three dots on the right hand side.

Select "set title".

Some folks have been adding their social.coop handle to their profile instead of changing their title- it really helps to have the handle as the title so we can connect loomio members to social.coop users!

Hello my friends! It's @michaelafisher moderating for the week. Shout out to everyone putting together cool online coop content these days! Keeping me entertained and hopeful for a better future <3

It's @emi back on moderation duties for social.coop this week!

i've been so inspired by all of the great posts regarding co-op responses to COVID-19 and overall outreach that is happening at the moment.

every co-op is only as (insert adjective here) as it's members! toot, create and initiate to help social.coop reflect the kind of co-op you would like it to be!
