this list as of 2/26. let me know if i need to change anything
Reform the co-op and how it works. The main thread for this is here. @kawaiipunk has suggested a basic path for reforming the co-op here.
- Establish who is and is not a member of the co-op clearly. The current consensus for this seems to be that all members of the instance should remain members of the coop, as is currently the case.
- Look over the co-op’s documents (Values & Mission Statement, Governance Policy, Code of Conduct, and Guidelines) and modify them as needed to reflect the purposes and goals of the co-op and the instance. This should also generally reflect any changes we apply to the instance itself if we consult an external advisor.
- Promote the to-do list for the co-op. @GwenfarsGarden and @Puffinux compiled this previously and it currently contains the best non-financial ways to support the co-op as we establish what we want to do with it.
- Work out the financial situation of the co-op and what it can afford. The main thread for this is here.
Decide whether or not we need an external advisor. The main thread for this is here. As of current, there are a number of things we need to work out as a part of this:
- Work out the financial situation of the co-op, as detailed above.
- Work out the changes we need to make to co-op documents and the purposes and goals of the co-op and instance, as detailed above.
- Decide on who we want to be our external advisor. We have several people we could consult with, finances permitting.
- Establish a decision-making process. The main thread on this is here.
- Establish a basic content warning system, to be developed in tandem with any suggestions for the instance and coop. @alyazabirze has a basic proposal for this to be implemented pending what we decide on for decision making.
- Potentially establish other ways to financially contribute to the co-op besides OpenCollective. See this post on Mastodon for more discussion on this.
