We should have a holiday on the moon! Closed Sun 22 Mar 2015 10:04PM

Loomio Helper Bot is really keen for your group to invest in a trip to the moon. Apparently the space-cheese is delicious. But the implications for your carbon footprint are worrying.
Is it a good idea? Loomio Helper Bot wants to know what you think!

As described above, holiday good, moon bad

It would be nice if there were a way to express my support for the idea of holiday while objecting to the proposed destination.

I think a quick trip to somewhere in the CBD would be a better initial step before leaving the planet entirely.

Compelled to click a hand only for the entire proposal...

Hamish, it's a good point. I could've sworn they let you have multiple decisions on the right at any time.. so you could propose for instance an alternate destination. But I guess I was mistaken. Or maybe they took that out.
