I love this and can see great scope for this. Would love to have it for all 430 Timebank members or even open to the whole community for discussions. The only thing I find a bit strange is going upwards to find the latest thread instead of down at the bottom......

Well said Lisa, I agree with the up and down thing. Great tool, cant wait to share it and get people contributing.

Hey all. This is great. The more feedback the better. Once everyone has had a chance to comment on this discussion, I'll bundle it together and send it back to the developers.

Like everything about it except for the fact that it is one more thing to log onto. Like the fact that I get an email notification if there is a comment added and then I just have to click the link.

Just had a look at the Skype message board - so messy and so much getting lost and disorganised. Hope we can get Loomio soon for all of us ....................................!

The feedback has been excellent so far, I'd like to look into bringing a few more people onboard.

I think we'd be best bringing in a few more coordinators before opening it to all timebank members.

Not sure what the best strategy is for bringing more people on. Does anyone have recommendations for other people we should bring on board?

Any input or ideas on how to approach this? What would we like to see?

Also keep the feedback coming!

I agree that it's time to bring some more people in. Perhaps we could discuss it at the next TBANZ skype call and see who is interested in joining up?

Kia ora koutou! I'm not a TB co-ordinator, but a TB member, a geek, and familiar with Loom.io. Glad to see people getting good use out of it.

My feedback: I link the newest comment being at the top when I've already read most of the discussion, and just want to see the newest comments. Would be good to have a button that reversed the order, for when I'm joining a discussion that's been going for a while, and I need to read from the start.

Long term: would be great for Loomio to know where I was up to last time I looked at the discussion, and automatically take me to the next comment after that!

I'm finding Loom.io very easy to use so far. I think it has great potential. I would like to use it with my Transition Town group. Seems to be really efficient. I really like the fact that it links up with my email and reminds me to log in when something is going on.

I would like the link that goes back to the main group eg. Timebanks Aotearoa New Zealand to be bolder and maybe another colour. When I have finished catching up on new comments to the thread I keep forgetting how to get back to the main page.
