Hi all #SocialCoop, there are three important decisions about Federation:
- Mute bofa.lol (this means they won't appear on the federated timeline; anyone can still follow accounts there)
- Suspend liberdon.com (reasons exposed there)
- Give standing jury the power to mute instances for some reasons up until a Federation Policy and CoC is enacted.
@fabianhjr voted, thanks for the reminder!
@protean @nev @fabianhjr seems to me that something like a "Chapter 2" getting started guide might be useful, in other words, "OK i'm on loomio and opencollective, what do i actually do here" - but i don't feel i have the authority or capacity to spearhead actually following through on that idea. heck maybe it already exists and i just didn't see it!
I think your concerns are being shared by a lot of people- even those who are in all of those 'hidden' working groups!
My feeling is that working groups, discussion threads etc. have sprung up on a needs basis and there hasn't been time/ energy put towards being accountable to best practices.
I believe this project is attempting to address this issue: https://www.loomio.org/d/jPmViSpb/mapping-structures
@emi i don't seem to have permission to view that link 😅 anyway i'm hoping to have some time over the next few days to really dig into loomio and the wikis and get a bit clearer of a picture of things myself.
oh... we've been having problems with that- I don't think this was supposed to be a closed/private group/thread. Something to look into!
Never heard of bofa lol, any reason in particular to mute them?
There was a controversy around bad shitposting from idiot @ bofa.lol and they dicided to allow bad shitposting (edgelords) but recommended the use of CWs and followers only.
A member of social.coop raised an issue about allowing such instances in the federated timeline so muting is IMHO a good approach.
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
