How to use Loomio
Welcome to Loomio, an online place for communicating and making decisions.
In case you haven't read the group introduction go back and read that 😎 but I will also put the Code of Conduct here as well.
This is an example discussion thread. You can add comments below. Threads are for discussing topics and getting clear outcomes. This thread is about how Loomio works, so post questions about that here.
You are currently reading the thread context, which can be kept up to date with key information and questions that help people engage.
To get started with Loomio:
Try commenting in an existing thread, or this one.
Tips for posting on Loomio:

Drag and drop pictures and attachments or click the paperclip icon
See 5 ways to use threads for some ideas and tips
If you have any questions, see Loomio Help.
It might also be useful to see an example of an active Loomio group that actively uses consensus based decision making: in this case check this the social.coop group out. A toy example of using Loomio to made a decision about a shared resource can be seen here in the members subgroup (must be a member to view).
Please also see the attached presentation on Using Loomio to engage with Biotech Without Borders. At the Biosummit 6.0 I updated this presentation somewhat for a general audience incorporating the concept of getting paid via Open Collective and you can find that here. My rationale about using these two tools was also delivered at Biosummit 6.0 and I will link that presentation in the thread about software choices at the bottom of the context before the table.

This is the outcome of a proposal or poll which summarizes the results! Since this first poll was just to play around there was no outcome :D
If yes, share your question. If no, you’re ready to comment in your group’s threads!
This Check poll is asking whether you or anyone here has any questions about using Loomio.
Go ahead and try it using the buttons and text field below.
As with any decision or facilitation tool, you will need to respond before it closes.
You can change your position while it is open (perhaps responding to new info).
Try participating! Click one of the buttons.

Testing out how a proposal works Closed Sun 4 Apr 2021 4:05PM
Vik and I voted... there isn't anything special about block. I think it's a veto style vote. There are options to include it and "abstain" separately.
This is a test proposal so we can sandbox around and get a sense for how they work. The help docs for this site are great IMO and this one is particularly relevant to this case.
