Put RSS of Loomio Discussions into Diaspora

ST Sean Tilley Public Seen by 64

Loomio recently announced that they now have RSS feed functionality.

It might be really useful to share upcoming Diaspora-related Loomio discussions on the Diaspora stream. We can use PaperBoD to post discussions to DiasporaHQ or even a dedicated "Diaspora Community Discussions" account.

I feel that this could help increase visibility to our internal discussions, which may not always be obvious or visible to our regular users in our community.

Cool idea Sean!

I'm a huge fan of PaperboD.

Not sure about pumping the discussions in via DiasporaHQ though, especially due to the amount of off-topic / not-meant-for-Loomio discussions that start there.

Perhaps setup a separate D* account for each Loomio area and publicise these via DiasporaHQ? People could then pick and choose what they want to 'hear'?

@rich1 Yeah, allowing anybody to start threads and then pumping those threads out through DHQ doesn't seem like a good idea. At best, you'll get a lot of noise in the DHQ stream. At worst, it's an open invitation to trolls and spammers.

Okay, well how about having it post out of a separate-but-related account? Sure, there might occasionally be trolls and spam, but DiasporaHQ could reshare the posts involving larger project-facing discussions.

Just a thought. :)

I'd prefer the posts to be from a separate account - not Diaspora HQ. Otherwise excellent idea - go for it!

That's a nice idea to improve visibility of Loomio discussion on diaspora* :)
