The articles combined have an average of 350 000 visitors a month, so hopefully this will help raise awareness.
Any other Wikipedians or who would like to become one?
Could be a nice community activity for #socialcoop, perhaps something to consider with the Reading Group at some point?
Finally added #SocialCoop to the ioo.coop/directory! Sorry it took so long. Thanks, whoever suggested it.
I've been trying to plan a little UK co-op hitchhiking tour, better start this week!
Will start in Glasgow and slowly make my way down south. Looking for sofas/floors to sleep on and co-ops to visit of any kind, but especially digital-y/software ones...
Would like to talk about saving food (esp. with https://karrot.world), web hosting, platform co-ops, volunteers, grassroots, open source, CoTech, social.coop, etc...
Should start in the next couple of days. Lemme know if I should swing by!
Dear #SocialCoop users ,
We are now about to switch our media object storage provider over.
So the site will be offline for a very short time. We hope you won't notice any missing images when we come back, but if you do, this is why. Note: we've made sure all the #SocialCoop images are safe, it should only be cached remote media which may required restoring.
If you have problems please contact us on our chat channel https://riot.im/app/#/room/#SocialCoop:matrix.org.
#WeCo is a #platformcoop Reddit with:
- Better categorization (on Reddit physics and science are separate subreddits, on WeCo physics is a childbranch of science).
We'll be a legal coop soon, allowing equal co-ownership to all.
We got a 680£ grant to to recruit users and want to fund individuals and groups that share our values and want to grow WeCo. We're open to all ideas.
If you're interested, toot me or join our discord:
Let me know if you are an artist or a listen (or both).
Let me know what kind of involvement you would be interested in (policy, governance, testing, feedback, co-op development etc.) and whether you'd be interested in forums, working groups / committee or full-on volunteer roles.
Just an informal scoping exercise :)
In a nutshell:
1. There's a poll on whether you support or oppose nuclear energy.
2. You vote in opposition to it.
3. The top comment shown to you is from a person who voted in support of nuclear energy, but was most upvoted by people who voted in opposition to it.
This could encourage comments that seek to appeal to those who disagree with the comment.

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
