at the weds ‘changing the world with the power of love’ meet, 10 ppl decided to have a foum for discussion, as opposed the email list. the email list will be reserved for meeting/workshop/actions announcements.
it wasnt discussed whether the forum be open or closed.
at a meeting last night, i agreed to make a non-descript interim forum open to all for use until the next meeting.
i had already setup withlove.55t.co.uk/forum but it was felt that it was excluding ppl with different ideas.
how do you propose important decisions are made? especially as you can get a completely different group of ppl at each meeting?
is a forum really such an important decision? there’s thousands of forums and email lists. are they all competing or complimentary.
of course ppl who never attend a meeting or cant attend a particular meeting can have input online. however should any real decisions be made offline?
as far as i remember crabgrass was mentioned as a possible forum, which you now have, and are able to invite ppl because you have almost exclusive access to the email list. i will have to check the minutes.
as it is, i can see the power of this network for cross-fertilising. eg.the facilities to ‘share discussion’/‘notify’ other groups.
where/when was it agreed to have a private/closed ‘non-violence’ forum?
this forum has 12 members including the founder. 2 have posted including the founder and me. at present it seems only a few ppl want to have input into this group.
I’m not going to post on any public pages. Love, Dan
fair enough. however, if others said they wont post on private pages, where would we be then?
i can empathise with discussing certain actions in private. however i cant see why this debate would need privacy.
