Email: Default settings
The new emails are in place and seem to work well enough. I suggest that we update all the user accounts and opt them in to these new emails, and that we make new users default to having these emails.

We update all the user accounts to be subscribed to 'Activity summary' and 'Proposal closing soon' emails and make this the default for new accounts. Closed 12:45pm - Saturday 1 Dec 2012
How reckless is it to only give one day for this proposal?

Keen! Though it would be ammmmazing to implement an obvious alert telling people when they're not signed in to avoid mass confusion when they click through from the email links first (I think this is gonna happen heaps)

I just hope that an unsubscribe link is made easy to click within each email.

That we agree upon less noisy, more useful email defaults Closed 1:04pm - Tuesday 4 Dec 2012
Further to the talk about enabling daily activity summary to on I think we need to consider all the email defaults together.
I suggest that once the new group email preferences are live we use the following defaults for new users.
Daily Activity Summary
Proposal Closing Soon
Instant notification of new discussions and motions for every group.
This should lower the volume of email going out, which will reduce the likelyhood of people marking our emails as spam.

We email a feature update to users explaining new emails, and asking them to fill in a google survey on their preferences Closed 3:40am - Saturday 8 Dec 2012
We email all the users with an update on new Loomio features, Particularly we explain:
- Daily Acitivity Summary Email
- Proposal Closing Soon Email
- User controlled discussion and motion notification emails
Finally we direct users to fill in a survey on what they think the defaults should be for a new user.

Members of my group (The Sudoroom Hackerspace in Oakland, CA) have been basically on a witch-hunt for me today, all initiated because one of them was signed up for emails they hadn't requested. Loomio should start collaborations, not witch-hunts.

My group is getting discontent with loomio, they don't want emails they didn't ask for.

Okay we should set the defaults, send an email to all users updating them of the new features and directing them to their settings page, and include the option to opt out of feature-update emails in the future.

That opinions are actively sought from non-techie users about their ideal email defaults Closed 11:43am - Sunday 16 Dec 2012
That opinions are actively sought from non-techie users about their ideal email defaults, ideally using direct interviews, definitely using methods that require no interaction with online forms or SurveryMonkey or anything like that. Maybe a really simple survey sent as a plain text email, with no more than two questions.

Sounds like a good idea. Doing very simple direct interviews seems like the best way to go. My only question is who will conduct the interviews and what questions will be asked?
December 13th, 2012 09:02
"Opinions are sought" in the passive voice doesn't actually lead to a clear path of action - who is going to conduct these interviews? How will this be executed? Don't think this proposal should go ahead unless the details are clarified.
