Loom.io - Require Proposal to Start New Groups. Closed Fri 14 Sep 2012 3:44AM
For the sake of keeping order and preventing too many groups from starting up at once (as groups, at the moment, are purpose-driven), I think it would be sane to propose that if someone wants to start a subgroup for Diaspora Community, we should try to take a vote on its creation and necessity. (For example take a look at this proposal here: http://loom.io/discussions/694)
As a community, we owe it to ourselves to be as organized as we possibly can. That includes setting up workflows and policies to prevent clutter from overflowing on our boards of governance and decision-making.

Not under the evaluation period. As a result of creating a new group we already have a good question to the Loomio team about how to move a discussion from one group to another.

I would think that at this stage, "require" is too strong of a word. "Encourage" is more in line with my feelings.

Sean, how would we control this? By access rights? I'd rather have moderators than a few super users.
So please can you fill the proposal to make it concrete on how to establish this? Does Loom.io support access levels or moving discussions?

Be a little more patient, allow for more people into the process, allow for plural voices, and deal with any problem once it comes up, instead of being afraid of problems before they happen.
Let people talk and see what happens.
