Nicole Bienfang responded to Change of Mission with completed 2018-05-30 07:23:14 -0500 on May 30, 2018 at 07:23 AM (CDT)
The Transition needs to change from a lofty headspace website to a practical "Hands on" organization.
we (the collective of "awakened") don't need another "teaching website" telling us what must be done, asking for pledges without making the first step themselves.
One huge issue thats stopping the "awakened" from acting is the chains of need.
We all need Food, Water, Clothes, Tools, Housing that without a safetynet, can only be acquired via money.
What "The Transition" needs to be is THE place to go for key resources.
The Transition needs to acquire local storage/depots to allow US the volunteer's space to acquire resources that form the safety net!
If we had free local storage we could set up resources banks, that's set up to be free to the point of need...
This isn't charity shops.. the resources won't be sold for money or shipped to far-flung locations away from the people that need them...
With local free storage. We can set up
Transition FOOD BANKS (Not Trussel trust food banks that are restricted by the government and means tested to prevent its use) but FOOD BANKS that serve the people.. we donate the food and the food is checked, washed and then is Free to the point of need for the public that needs it.
WATER BANKS (The Transition should approach land owners that have access to clean water sources, and use the water for free if (TT) supplies the storage and transport to the depots.
CLOTHES BANKS... again instead of donating clothes to a charity that sells the clothes, the clothes are checked and washed and then is available to the public for free.
TOOLS BANKS ... equipment is donated, checked, and refurbished/fixed and then is free to the point of need. (if people know that TOOLS are readily available .. they wouldn't need to store/own tools.. the tools can be donated once no longer needed)
HOUSING/Shelter .. abandoned property that's been left to ruin can be repaired and redecorated and then OCCUPIED by the transition for use...
For emergency housing, tents and shelters can be acquired on transition owned land.
The safety net should be the Transitions NUMBER ONE GOAL for the first 10 years.

Everything you have stated about the chain of needs, Food Banks Water Banks etc. is what we are hoping our BUDS will create within each area where there is a gathering of people that want to bring about the Transition to a resource based economy. Our site is here to help guide people to such groups and for those groups to advertise what they are doing. The Transition has the potential to be THE place to go for key resources if people came together and entered their information into our website. We have pages dedicated to finding people with certain skills (http://www.thetransition.org/member_skills), finding objects (http://www.thetransition.org/objects), spaces (http://www.thetransition.org/spaces) or even just other contributors (http://www.thetransition.org/find_nearby_contributors) that might be in your area.

In Dimensions of Conflict it says
There are five major factors which influence the dimensions of conflicts, awareness of conflict, intensity of feelings and actions, rules or customs which regulate how conflicts are resolved, the purity of conflict, and the levels of power inequality.
but purity of conflict is not discussed

This is in response to a request that we each leave one suggestion in the suggestion box. I still don't think the action plan section of the website is mobile friendly. The boxes are tiny on my cell phone, and they can't distinguish between a "clicking the box" touch, and a scrolling touch. Improving these problems would definitely help with my ability to use the website.Official response from Nicole Bienfang started
Nicole Bienfang responded to Emails with started 2018-05-30 07:13:41 -0500 on May 30, 2018 at 07:13 AM (CDT)
The ability for The Transition team members to send emails to supporters and contributors - either automatic emails or manually produced emails, is extremely important. It would be helpful to be able to send emails between The Transition members and from members to Transition Team members via The Transition site, as well. However, there is a tendency to overdo emails - so it is important that automatic emails are kept to a very minimum.Official response from Nicole Bienfang started
Agreed. We submitted this issue to Nationbuilder, but need your help to make it a priority for them https://www.thetransition.org/sign

Nicole Bienfang responded to Price quotes for solar hot water with started 2018-05-30 07:06:32 -0500 on May 30, 2018 at 07:06 AM (CDT)
On the page for Solar Hot Water, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bycA8YL8iqA, there is a table giving price quotes for two different sized solar hot water heating systems. Any such price quotes need to be dated - a date should be stated when these prices were in effect. Since solar energy has dropped in cost/price, it is possible these prices are no longer accurate. When any price is given, the date when this price is in effect should be given - for anything, not just solar hot water systems - as prices fluctuate over time. What is a valid price today may not be valid tomorrow. Without a date being given, the reader has no idea whether the prices given are currently valid.Official response from Nicole Bienfang started

Under The Transition page, "http://www.thetransition.org/food_production, there needs to be a page or a reference to a section of The Transition classifieds for supporters to buy, sell, give away, or offer livestock and other small animals on a share or other basis. A share program needs to be developed.Official response from Nicole Bienfang planned
Buy/Sell will be under the Micro Jobs store, but we currently do not have enough volunteers to work on that project. The give away is under objects. We will work on offerings for livestock as a separate page.

Under The Transition page "Food Production", http://www.thetransition.org/food_production, there needs to be a page on seed exchanges. The Transition needs to have our own seed exchange, where supporters can offer and request seeds (on a free if you ask basis (?) ) from other supporters. Other plant stocks could be included, such as seedling trees, bulbs, etc. This would be in addition to a listing of known seed exchanges, places to look for seed exchanges, places that offer free seeds (and under what situations/conditions and suggestions regarding how to set up a local seed exchange.Official response from Nicole Bienfang completed
Seeds can be offered under objects and seed exchange will be developed for the missions section. For now, users can use Southern Exposure Seed Exchange (SESE). https://www.southernexposure.com/

Nicole Bienfang responded to Information is buried in the Website. with considering 2018-05-30 07:01:42 -0500 on May 30, 2018 at 07:01 AM (CDT)
In order to find other people, shared skills and objects, people need to go to "connect" (http://www.thetransition.org/connect) and then to "find other nearby supporters". Then they can find free wi-fi, other supporters, shared objects, etc. This information needs to be more easily accessible. Also, when people think of "donate" it isn't always money. If I want to donate a keyboard, or have free seeds I can donate to the community, I might go to "donate" in the sitemap. Once at the "donate" page, it speaks of contributing cash donations, but doesn't tell me anything about how I would donate physical things, skills, etc. I think this is a mistake. It can also lead to misunderstandings about The Transition and lead to confusion. The sharing of spaces, places, skills and objects could be one of the most valuable features of this website. But it is buried and hard to find.Official response from Nicole Bienfang considering
