PPBE Online : Common Policy for All

https://pad.parley.be/p/PPBE_Online___Common_Policy_for_All

ISSUE

Pirates use Free Software anytime it's possible, but there is still some online service that we (could) use and they don't match that criteria. IE : Facebook, Twitter, Discord.

Also, as a matter of facts

  • Nobody may really forbid anyone to create anything online with the name "Pirate Party Belgium" in it

  • We love trying stuffs

  • There is different point of view regarding the tools that we may use or not regarding our core values

  • Not everyone has skills to setup a server

  • We can't let everyone having an access on PPBE infrastructure

PROPOSAL

Set some basic rules and good practice regarding any tool we may use, on any platform, free or not.

Here is a draft with the main point I see for now :

  • if there is a Open Source solution, use it every time it's possible

  • 3 admins rule anywhere if possible

  • official tools for discussions are Element and Loomio

  • official tools for content publication are PPBE Fediverse Accounts (Mastodon for now, Pixelfed and Peertube could be added later)

  • GAFAMX tools are secondary and should not be presented as the main ones. They may help the community members to find each others, but they should advocate our free service.

  • When possible, a bridge should exist between our Free and their GAFAMX tools (IE: Element <> Telegram)

EXPECTED RESULTS

  • help people getting aboard, even if they are not tech savvy enough and/or not totally aware of free alternatives

  • help ideas and project to get alive > it can always be pushed through Free software later

  • help people to get involved with free alternatives instead of forcing them

  • build a moderation policy respected and wanted on every platform we use

I guess we could also add some naming rules for domain, profile, username, etc... This could help develop/reinforce our online identity as a community.

Probably not the most important matter thou...

(I'm only talking about PPBE accounts, not people/members accounts)
