If Loomio is to be used as a tool for discussions and voting it must be included in the rules of Procedure. This means that votes made in Loomio must be able to be tabled in the same way that email votes are.
current wording of §5 Votes 3
"Board members not present at the meeting can vote on a proposal published in the provisional agenda by citing the proposal and expressing their vote in an e-mail sent to board@pp-international.net (postal vote). The postal votes shall be added to the votes casted at the meeting if the proposals are exactly the same. The postal votes shall be mentioned in the provisional agenda and can be repealed before they are added by a different postal vote or by a vote casted at the meeting."

Proposed change reads:
Board members not present at the meeting can vote on a proposal published in the provisional agenda or Loomio PPI Board by citing the proposal and expressing their vote in an e-mail sent to board@pp-international.net (postal vote) or casting a vote in Loomio. The Loomio and postal votes shall be added to the votes cast at the meeting if the proposals are exactly the same. The Loomio and postal votes shall be mentioned in the provisional agenda and can be superseded by subsequent email, a change to the Loomio vote or by a vote cast at the meeting.

Voting in this here in Loomio will not be valid until the rules of procedure have been changed at the next meeting. However, it would be great to test the system

That the PPI Board changes the Rules of Procedure Closed Tue 28 Jul 2015

The details of the change is in the agenda and loomio discussion - votes here will not count as the change needs to be made first but is a good test case.

I would clarify, that all loomio proposals end up on the agenda of the board meeting as well...

I agree with Gregory. Proposals should be placed on the agenda first then transferred to loomio
