Community Moderation Policy - Let’s Design it Together
This Loomio Community group is one of the most important parts of Loomio and our work here online, and we love engaging with each and every one of you. Our crowdfunding campaign is going to explode next week and we're hoping our exposure will increase dramatically, all around the world.
With more people in the conversation, we think this group might grow in size and more people will join the community. As this community group grows, how do you want to enhance and protect the quality of your experience in this group?
Inclusive groups are inclusive because of principles which make it safe for everyone to participate effectively, and a strong culture of respect and open communication. What principles would we like to uphold about how we interact here no matter how big, how global, how diverse we get?
We believe in the best in people, which is why we’re making a tool so all voices can be heard. But we all know that sometimes you have to draw a line. Where should that line be drawn? What kind of behavior would necessitate moderators stepping in, or having to make someone leave the community? These are worst case scenarios, but understanding these boundaries is how we nurture the best case scenarios.
Let's start by talking about what we love about Loomio Community group, and develop some principles from there for protecting what we love as we grow and change. We are trying to develop the first iteration of a moderation policy this week (although it will always be evolving) so if you have thoughts about this, have your say!

Approve the Moderation Policy Closed Sun 9 Mar 2014
The initial moderation policy has been unanimously approved by those who participated. This policy is now in effect. We will continue to evolve this policy collaboratively as needed going forward. I will link it from the group description.
I have written up a draft policy and I am putting it a proposal to see if it gets approval.
I have written this myself without collaborating so I fully expect to get feedback and make changes before this is finally approved!
Please keep in mind that this is a first iteration. I would like to have a policy in place that people are OK with before we attract a lot of public attention next week (around crowdfunding) but I expect this policy will improve and evolve over time.

Great start. I want to uphold authenticity of participation here. As soon as someone is being inauthentic I think we can all work to bring them back to authenticity. I like your bottom lines Alanna
