And here's a proposed #meetup for members (or any other interested folks) who'll be in #London for #Open2018:
And if any #SocialCoop members want to use that group to organise meet-ups in your area, DM me your email address and I'll add you.
@mattcropp @mayel People can create their own #SocialCoop team in their city, that will make it easier for people to discover what's close to them.If you're interested, I can group all those groups under a single SocialCoop "organization" so you can list all member teams and coordinte joint events.
Organization support is still in early development, so it's not self-service yet, but I'm happy to manage it manually for you for now.
See https://gettogether.community/org/endlessos/ for an example
Mayel you should have the ability to create new events at the organization level for your member teams to participate in. Unfortunately there's no way yet for you to add new member teams, I'll have to do that for you. But if you use this feature I'll prioritize adding that in the next milestone. I've already added your existing team as a member.
Great! Hope to do one of these closer to me. Btw, would it be feasible/desirable to create a social.coop dashboard with links to the instance, open collective, Riot, loomio, sandstorm, gitlab, wiki, gettogether? Something like the disroot dashboard…
@Matt_Noyes I think the wiki is serving that purpose?
@mayel really? I never use it but should check it out. What is the link?
@mayel The content is good but the UI is not, nor is the location, for the purpose I am thinking of. Dashboard is a better metaphor -- I imagine a member signing in to social.coop and seeing a dashboard from which they can click on one of an array of buttons to go to social.coop (the mastodon instance), Loomio, Gettogether, etc. Maybe with a short list of most recent activity drawn from the various platforms...
@mayel @Matt_Noyes I don't think the wiki does serve that purpose - though it might. Functions as a dashboard? I don't think so. It presents a bland and opaque face to the world, and needs to be made more oriented to naive users IMHO. It's takinng me weeks to discover what's under the hood in social.coop. See 'Editorial' Loomio subgroup (when I get given membership).
sorry @oli I've got other plans with mayel and duncan for Wednesday evening.
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
