Separately from the above, I would also like to see the period for nominations extended by 2 days. This is arguably one of the most important strategic conversations for the Coop, yet we are giving folks 4 days to nominate representatives, 2 of which are the weekend.
Strongly agree. Logging back on on a Monday to find such a lengthy topic has taken place over a weekend, sentiment polls and all is a good way to induce contributor anxiety!
I appreciate the collective desires to move forward quickly however launching forum debates over weekends imo is not the best way to capture full community participation.
On to business… I think one day looking back, a key stakeholder group in frequent communication will all seem very obvious so it’s great to see this taking shape.
Having Felix, Scott and a select group representing IC is the right way to go imo. 3 seems about right (great shout by @fallow8, +1 from me on 1 FT member), maybe we shortlist 5 (it’s great to see names coming in but we cannot assume all nominations will necessarily want or have the capacity for the additional responsibilities.)
Personally, I would like to see these [term tbc] “community reps”? rotate. I therefore would like to propose a re-nomination period every 3 months with no one member to serve more than 2 terms on the bounce.
