Feature(?) request: Loomio being transparent with finances
I was always very excited by Loomio, but now more than ever. One of the things that inspires me is the sort of PayAsYouFeel model - something I believe (when done well) cultivates greater collective responsibility, smashes barriers to entry and gets social impact to reach where it's most needed.
However, it's rarely done well and lots of PAYF orgs struggle financially, so I decided to look more into how to make it work for everyone as a revenue model:
(I open sourced my findings [working with a researcher] and invite you to view + comment there)
My proposal here is that Loomio be transparent about its finances with a live/frequently updated account balance, also showing what income level = break even/growth/losing money; then us users can make educated contributions about how much to pay for using Loomio.
