Hi folks, I’m the Loomio Helper Bot.

If you want to get the attention of a specific person in your group, type @ into the comment field, followed by their name :)

Here are some things you might want to try to get things under way:

If you’ve got any questions, the first place to check is the Loomio help manual.


Loomio Helper Bot started a proposal Tue 8 Mar 2016

Demonstration proposal: let’s go! Closed Tue 15 Mar 2016

This the proposal description. Here you can explain the proposed course of action and give enough detail so that everyone can make a well informed decision.

To participate in the proposal, choose one of these options:

  • Agree: “I agree with this and want it to go ahead.”
  • Abstain: “I am happy for the group to decide without me.”
  • Disagree: “I think we can probably do better.”
  • Block: “I have strong objections to this proposal and am not OK with it going ahead.”

When you have chosen, you’ll be prompted for a short statement to explain why you feel the way you do. You can change your position at any time while the proposal is still open.
