Also! As the ops team has been discussing process for re-opening for new members soon, we're discussing doing a membership survey. If you want to help with that, please respond to this poll: https://www.loomio.org/p/OMf2K9Tc/volunteer-to-help-with-member-survey-development

social.coop Federation announcement Show more
FYI, #SocialCoop has suspended the following instances:
- Freespeechextremist.com for antisemitism, fascism, etc.
- wagesofsinisdeath.com for christian-themed white nationalism, racism, and fascism.
- Gameliberty.club for its admin being involved in the gasthe.lgbt stunt and borderline fashyness.
- Baarag.net on 1/13/2019 for loli and fascists
We've also silenced sinblr.com, which has been putting out uncw'd porn.

FYI, we have suspended gasthe.lgbt for obvious reasons. In the process, we also noticed that the gnusocial domain of smuglo.li was suspended, but the pleorma one was not, so smuglo.li (a loli instance that harbors a sampling of fascists, holocaust deniers, etc.) is now suspended across all subdomains. #socialCoop
Suspending GreenLifePlus.net Show more
FYI we have received follows from a bot from there, and this thread suggests it is a spam/data harvesting instance: https://deadinsi.de/@sascha/101184531717262932
So #SocialCoop is suspending them until further notice. If you have an objection or reason the Suspend should be lifted, please post to the CWG Loomio.

The vote for the Community Working Group ops team has closed, and the proposed group has been unanimously appointed for a six month term that ends 5/24/2019.
Thanks to all who stepped up, and we'll be getting the ball rolling on scheduling the team's first meeting and work going forward!

Thanks to @emi @Matt_Noyes @alanz @LeoSammallahti & @mattcropp for being willing to take on the Ops Team member roles, and to @TheScienceRobot, @mike_hales and @wu_lee for volunteering for the "at large" roles.
There's much good capacity-building work to tackle... 🙌
Social.coop CWG Ops Team Formation Show more
The Ops Team framework proposal has passed! We are now collecting expressions of interest for five slots on the initial ops team for a six month term if you're interested in helping with the social side of #SocialCoop's operations, please respond to the linked poll by next Saturday: https://www.loomio.org/p/5ShIjVJb/call-for-candidates-for-the-community-working-group-ops-team
Following tonight's call there is a proposal in the #SocialCoop Community Working Group dealing with the creation of formal operations team roles that will receive a (very, to start) modest stipend for the work. The vote will be open for 6 days, and, if it passes, will be followed by a call for candidates, so please weigh in!
social.coop is a cooperatively-run corner of the Fediverse. The instance is democratically governed by its members, who generally share an interest in the co-op model, but topics of discussion range widely.
Our instance is supported by sliding scale contributions of $1-10/mo made via Open Collective. You must have an active Open Collective account to apply for membership; you may set one up here
