Loomio

Social.coop

Social.coop is a coop-run corner of the fediverse – we run a Mastodon social network node on the social.coop domain! This Loomio Group is open to all members, and is where governance and operational decisions are made. Our bylaws outline how we govern ourselves, our wiki contains some useful information, and other ways to get involved are below:

Toot with the #SocialCoop hashtag or pop by our chat room if the instance is off-line, or you just want to talk with other members in real time.

Contribute: If you haven't set up your regular financial contribution (membership fee), you can do so on our OpenCollective page.

Join Working Groups! Much of the nitty-gritty work of the co-op takes place in the working groups, which then bring proposals to be ratified by the full group. Current active working groups include:

Community Expectations: Please review our community's Code of Conduct. Social.coop has also agreed to adhere to the International Cooperative Alliance's Statement on Co-operative Values, with which member behavior in social.coop spaces is expected to be in alignment:

"Co-operatives are based on the values of self-help, self-responsibility, democracy, equality, equity and solidarity. In the tradition of their founders, co-operative members believe in the ethical values of honesty, openness, social responsibility and caring for others."
