Right now we're grandfathered in on a $5/mo plan that goes up to 300 users. We had been discussing switching to a different, slightly more expensive plan under a previous pricing structure, but since the pricing plan has changed, that conversation has not progressed. Definitely will need to navigate that at least if/when we hit 300 folks on Loomio, and should probably do so beforehand...
Thing is @nicksellen has seen emails Loomio is sending to free plan groups, checked out the new pricing structure & became concerned we would also be moved to the new pricing regime
Bit unclear we'd qualify as Volunteer/ Community- at $1 year per user, 4 times what we pay now
"They do not… generate income"
For the immediate moment it doesn't, but this is something we should definitely get sorted in the near future. My sense is that we will fall under the volunteer/community category, as my understanding of the boundary is "supported by member payments with no full-time staff", which definitely describes us.
The other thing is the question of if we want to do a member audit and remove inactive peeps, etc., or have an "opt-in" poll?
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
