Welcome to this small trial
Until today, Wednesday morning, there have only been 4 people here. We've made some mistakes but we're learning how this scheme works.
A tiny but confusing in the beginning.
ANYONE, including new members can START a discussion. After a discussion has been initiated, and preferably after there has been an adequate exchange of views, ANYONE can put forward a proposal on which people can then vote.
I think the system only deals with one proposal at a time, for each discussion.
Also you can make your discussion public or private. Up to now we've only used private discussions. but I chose to make this one public.
Over the next three days I expect fifteen new people to join the group. Welcome all.
