Make a poll on whether the coop should request an article, and therefore give a 20$ bounty for new members who write it.

Article about cooperatives and anti-trust Closed Sat 14 Dec 2019 9:04AM

Cooperatives have historically been used to solve market failures like monopolies and monopsonies, and the movement has lot of overlap between the anti-trust movement. Perhaps there could be a Wikipedia article about the subject?

Article about cooperatives and the trade union movement Closed Sat 14 Dec 2019 11:02AM

Both were born out of the labour party in the early industrial Britain. There should be an article about the two.

Seems like this is the sort of question a score or range poll would be more effective at assessing and prioritizing the different options?

LS

I thought of the process being the following:

  • Yes/No poll on whether an article request is approved

  • When there's 5 new requested articles approved, have prioritising poll

    Totally open to having a different process, what would you imagine?

I guess it feels to me like I wouldn't mind all of the suggested options, so the up/down does not feel like a particularly meaningful action for me to take.

If it's "agenda building," maybe an alternative approach would be a check poll asking people to suggest articles in their comments, then doing a prioritization vote with the suggestions. I'll give it a little more thought, though...

Cooperative governance: Add article about how cooperatives are governed. Closed Fri 31 Jan 2020 3:01PM

I see articles about governance on Wikipedia but not specifically to how cooperatives are governed. Should we write an article that explains how coops are governed? What about how the governance works with the DisCOs, distributed cooperatives? Also how multistakeholder cooperatives are governed.

It is an important article and another language would reach more people.
Do you guys think we need to expand the English version too?

Any info on this article and the person contacting you?
I'm also from Indonesia and this is a good start to translate in Bahasa Indonesia

Article about origins of cooperatives and cooperatives in the 19th century Closed Sun 31 May 2020 5:01PM

The new template for cooperatives I've been sketching (it's added as an image in this post) would separate cooperative history into three separate articles.

  • Origins and the 19th century

  • 1900 - 1945

  • Post-1945

My friend Iwan Doherty has said he is interested in joining the Wikipedia Co-op Fund and would be able to write the "Origins and 19th century" article next week.
