I'm very proud that we implemented democratic features directly into https://karrot.world/ - currently there is a network of trust to gain editing rights, and discussion then score voting for group removal.
I'm not aware of other bits of software that use democratic processes to actually perform actions within the software. I'm sure there must be some others though...
Standalone democratic process tools kind of miss the point for me. I want to see democracy deeply embedded into our tools.
@nicksellen wow I'd love to learn more. Any docs on the Democratic structures? I'd love to learn more. Working on this now: https://osf.io/gxu3a/?view_only=11c9e93011df4865951f2056a64f5938
@ntnsndr sure! You can read https://community.foodsaving.world/t/info-how-does-the-conflict-resolution-feature-work/254 and https://community.foodsaving.world/t/info-karrot-trust-system-and-user-levels/108 which explain the system. It took a lot of discussion to get to this point. We always resisted adding normal admin features.
@nicksellen thanks for this—really interesting. Seems to have resemblances with reputation-based decentralized networks. But since this is a self-hosted system, what special powers does the hoster have other than pulling the plug?
