Can we make the inclusive threads more open & inclusive

L Lexy Public Seen by 221

This subgroup is closed and private and link to a thread gives people the message:

"You do not have permission to do this"

Do we even need a subgroup? If we do, can we make it open?

I think subgroups are a useful feature for those wanting to engage with a particular area who don't want to wade through the main feed, which is constantly changing in order. As Loomio fills up with threads it will become more useful to be able to narrow things down.
To make the subgroup more open I think @ionasteen will have to change it in the settings? (since she started the subgroup)

Hi Folks - this subgroup was made WAY BACK, when loomio was just in testing phase. I'll have a chat with Iona and we'll discuss if it's best just to delete it, open it up, or keep it for specific groups. Keep an eye out.

actually this subgroup is a newer copy of that old one (which was accidentally its own group separate from Burning Nest group).
Here's the old one: https://www.loomio.org/g/CyJvE62b/inclusions-and-accessibility-at-nest

I think as long as the subgroup isn't private it should be fine - people have already added threads to it

I just asked to join the subgroup and then I was able to post in it and create threads.

Oh, so it's all fine then?

I think Iona needs to sort this out as both Inclusion Lead and the person who created the subgroup.

I don't see why it can't be an open group, though.
