discussion and questions about the coop, its structure, its goals, and its future
partially as a part of, partially independent of the issues around the instance itself, there seems to be a lot of confusion and a general lack of clarity about the coop, the purpose of the coop, how it’s organized, how it works, what it does, who is and is not in it, who makes decisions in it, where and how it makes decisions, and so on. hence, i think we’d be remiss to not discuss the coop as a part of these conversations.
what i think we need to do is clarify the above points and any other questions people might have, analyze if the coop needs to be restructured, remade, abolished (or something else), establish a clear path for the coop going forward since it seems like we don’t really have one, and look over what the coop seeks to accomplish and probably how it can actually accomplish those things in the future. optimally, the future of the coop we lay out would also reflect the decisions made about the instance, although i doubt that what needs to be done for the coop will be exactly one-to-one with what needs to be done for the instance
