We are not a 501(c)3 this year. We are pending. This means that donors can deduct taxes this year but if we are not approved then donors will owe back taxes. Or the deduction can be taken in future years. EDIT - Not 100% accurate, see correction in reply.
Admins will receive periodic emails with stats about user activity.
In the beginning…
- We will receive an email per signup and per published Take. Eventually will move this to a weekly summary.
- We will receive a daily summary of all saved drafts of users to get an idea of how people are using it
Possible privacy concerns with this.
Proposed feature - ability to share drafts with other users
Open Question - How will we manage moderation?
Our homepage is static and we generate it manually. We need to give the user an interface when publishing a draft to format their feed card. This will become easier once we have more data on how people are publishing drafts. For now, this is less important than getting users to write content.
Proposed feature – user might want to publish to share to Facebook but not have it appear in the homepage feed.
Victoria didn’t understand the email based login, suggested that we make this process clearer.
- Clarify login process to new users
To solicit Open-Austin we need a “community code of conduct”. The Open-Austin code is limited for our use case.
Discourse is forum software running meta.mytake.org.
Referencing and using Medium’s rules (https://medium.com/policy/medium-rules-30e5502c4eb4)) as a foundation for our own.
Spam, harassment, doxing will be blocked.
We will hesitate to block hate speech in the hope that content of higher quality will naturally reduce visibility to hateful and low quality takes.
Question of how to rank/sort/categorize posts. Eventually it’s likely we’ll mirror reddit’s method of views*upvotes/age squared. For now, this is low priority compared to pushing MyTake.org as an authoring tool.
Suggestion – include guidelines on how to have a civil discussion and a thoughtful debate.
Suggestion – create Facebook group or meta.mytake.org for pilot group.
- Ned – Share access to Google Analytics with the admins if it’s free
- Each of us finds 5 Take authors to create accounts, publish a Take, and share feedback with us.
- Bridge alliance
Bridge alliance is a coalition of organizations. Trans-partisan groups that shares ideas and works together on collective impact projects.
Suggestion – Work on the elevator pitch.
