Sorry for forking this email thread,
but I fear we tend to discuss almost everything
from content and form, to procedures and tools
together and without awareness of energy drain.
It is a bit frustrating after 9 months on Meta to realize
that most UG I joined have no decision making protocols
or culture of using dedicated tools-services-methods
for decision making processes (and there are few around).
This tends to render then hard to follow and grasp dynamics.
Here I would focus on: #FAQ: Decision-making tools in UGs?
Who could help me find support for testing Loomio in any UG?

I’m not familiar with either but open to checking them out/learning.
