What is wrong with you opening one or more discussions Topics in this very section of the forum?
Like that, everyone of us can know that this discussion is happening, especially for people who will join us. By everyone I mean, all members of DiEM25, including all members belonging to the CC, the PNCs, the DSCs, the AP, the VC (any missing acronym?
) and most importantly the ISOLATED members like me. Ideas create new ideas. We need all our brains to work in parallel.
So please forget about creating any group that would be in a closed discussion either through a mailing list (a disastrous tool for multiple topics and sub-topics) or any trending proprietary or FOSS platform which require any sort of login and with our own words stored on some servers somewhere (Loomio, Slack, Mattermost, Facebook, etc.). Then we need to keep a list here or I don't know where, of the entire list of these sub-groups of DiEM25 members working on something somewhere.
I know this forum is not ideal for many interactions, but is quite ok for developing ideas, proposals, policies on specific topic. I like many would just wish we can "thumb up" a post we agree with. People need to stick to the topic and open new ones when needed and stay brief and let time and space for others to contribute. If threads in this forum stay unanswered by other members, it might mean that these topics are not ripe yet. You can see that any topic can be picked up at any time, after months, by anyone and the conversation suddenly starts. I think it is a good place for that.
Sending proposals to the CC and PNCs (to be replaced by properly elected NCs) is definitely the worst thing to do. These bodies are not designed to store all proposals coming from all members. It is not a question of not accepting your proposals. No one else can see these proposals and the CC and PNCs have no place and time to do anything with these proposals. They don't even have time to reply apparently. They have other tasks to do in the meantime.
We need to do the work among ourselves, in the open space.
