Fellow social.coop members: there is a Loomio vote that is closing in 4 hours on whether to temporarily halt new memberhips on this instance. https://www.loomio.org/p/fp5MNWBy/-urgent-temporarily-close-new-member-applications
ArchaeoAnimals is live! Its my new #zooarchaeology #podcast from the Archaeology Podcast Network. We'll be dropping new episodes every first Tuesday of the month and covering all things zooarchaeology - from ancient farm animals to weird dog skulls!
The RG have serious gaps and problems (see discussion on Matrix and Loomio) -- they were intended to be filled out by the CWG. So their approval should probably be taken as approval of a kind of general orientation: "let's have conflict resolution and a reporting system for abuse" instead of a procedure.
It would be great to fix them quickly and propose a new version for approval. https://pad.disroot.org/p/Social.Coop_Reporting_Guide_v3.1
There is a new version of the Code of Conduct in the works. I think we (whoever wants to help edit) should get this done and out to the membership asap -- it makes edits that came up in the voting process and important changes that are likely to be accepted quickly, since they reflect concerns that are widely shared.

social.coop Rejuvenation Committee Discussion Show more
For folks interested in discussing the Rejuvenation Committee on a call while the vote is live, I'll be hosting one on Wednesday at 8pm EDT. RSVP in the check poll in below thread if you intend to make it:
Update: I have added a pad for editing/rewriting the Reporting Guidelines for the next version. This can be used by people who are eager to revise the version on which we are currently voting, so we can update it quickly
As per a suggestion in the comments, while the Code of Conduct and Reporting Guidelines Rc1 is being voted on, I have started a new CoC version to incorporate suggestions made by people as they voted and in discussion on Loomio. a) if you know of other suggestions that need to be integrated, please add them. b) If you have further suggestions, please see the document and feel free to help edit. These things don't write themselves! ;-)
Are we allowed to post conference calls for papers and such on here? New community, new norms! Hey, speaking of digital norms, if you're into #archaeology/ #digiarch / #dh (digital humanities) and willing to attend #SAA2019 April conference in New Mexico, this digital ethical dilemmas forum is worth applying to. Deadline is middle of next week!
social.coop is a a coop-run corner of the fediverse, a cooperative and transparent approach to operating a social platform. We are currently closed to new memberships while we improve our internal processes and policies, and plan to re-open to new folks when that work is complete. [9/2/2018]
