In the list of over 2,000 names who have completed the o seed task. it would be nice to see if my name is on the list. Where is the search for that list please?Official response from Nicole Bienfang completed
Individuals are unable to see their own names because they know whether or not they have accomplished the task or phase. There is no search feature, but there is a feature that is present with an arrow at the top of the box to select in order to make the list alphabetized.

It is both a meeting process method and an organizing method. Sociocracy corresponds most closely to our shared human nature and when done well keeps everyone contributing constructively.

Nicole Bienfang responded to Unfair to People to say All are Created Equal with considering 2018-05-30 05:29:11 -0500 on May 30, 2018 at 05:29 AM (CDT)
I strongly disagree with your declaration that all people are created equal. We are not equal per se, but we all do have equal value. I am concerned that saying that all people are created equal will subtract from the extra support that some may need to truly be on equal footing, and might be limiting to the encouragement of differing talents. Therefore, it is my suggestion that we do not declare that all are created equal, but declare that all of us are equally valuable. Thank you for considering my suggestion, Elizabeth I Quirk

Increasing numbers of farmers are exploring creative ways to acquire capital for farm operations. The following pages detail options and considerations for crafting unconventional nancial arrangements that have been used in other sectors of the economy, but might be new to the agricultural sector. We guide the reader through basic legal issues relevant to farmers and community members when pursuing these arrangements. We highlight several mechanisms that allow for creativity and customization of nancial transactions at the neighbor-to-farmer or farmer-to- community-member level: • the promissory note • the owner- nanced land sale, • equity nancing • revenue-based nancing • the “multi-year” CSA • share leases www.thegreenhorns.net THEGREENHORNS.NETOfficial response from Nicole Bienfang incomplete

Nicole Bienfang responded to Psychology of control & State of Mind - Top Documentary with considering 2018-05-30 05:15:24 -0500 on May 30, 2018 at 05:15 AM (CDT)
I saw this documentary and it seemed very good to convey the idea of how we are educated (endoctrinated) to go with the herd, how great capital induces us to give individual and collective liberties and do other things that are detrimental to us and more, feeds the system. Among other this relates how people are lead by publicity and even propaganda to make people to get along with the economic and political agenda. The final part, is the most motivating I have seen so far to get them to leave this system giving ideas on how to do it and even fight it ... I think it's very good for the active people at The Transition to gain even more momentum, but mostly I think it's great to wake up people still inside the "Matrix", leading them to join us ... https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=afsmIKpJQwQ&client=mv-google&layout=mobile
Nicole Bienfang responded to Text-heavy, unclear Call to Actions, Videos needed with submitted 2018-05-30 05:09:36 -0500 on May 30, 2018 at 05:09 AM (CDT)
Hi, I am brand new to the site and I was overwhelmingly confused on high and low levels of what the website does and how I can use it. There is an overwhelming amount of text. Information is good, but too much of it can turn a person away. Some people are readers, some people use the overall imagery of the site to deduce information and some people are a blend of the two. But in general, people will only give a page a few seconds of their time to understand it before they click off to a new site in which they don't have to study it to understand it. A short video, like a trailer for the website, would be fantastic on the home page. And a clear, main Call to Action on each page (perhaps in the same location for each page) would help clear things up too. I have been on the site for 20 minutes now and am still not entirely sure how to use the site, why I should use the site and what the site actually does.Official response from Nicole Bienfang submitted

Nicole Bienfang responded to Home Page - Scrolling images appear pixelated or blurred with considering 2018-05-30 05:02:59 -0500 on May 30, 2018 at 05:02 AM (CDT)
The scrolling images on the home page have some pixelation and blurring issues, especially around the hard lines on the "post-it-note images", around the text on the Nelson Mandela image, and in both the text and background image of the "sunset" image. It might help to try uploading a higher-resolution copy of the scrolling images. I currently use a VERY large flat-screen for my moniter so It's probably a lot more obvious to me, but it would help the front page to look even more professional if the images are very sharp and clean.

Nicole Bienfang responded to Add "surplus" to the "type" category of free food offered. with completed 2018-05-06 04:37:18 -0500 on May 06, 2018 at 04:37 AM (CDT)
On The Transition page, "http://www.thetransition.org/free_food", there is a place to enter "Locations". When filling out this form, it asks for "type". I would suggest adding "surplus" to the list of different types of food offered. I entered the surplus eggs I always have every spring, but the different "type" categories don't match. I entered it under "grocery samples", as I thought that was the closest, but it really doesn't describe farm surplus food available on a seasonal basis. Perhaps an "Other" as a type, instead of or in addition to "Surplus" or "Farm/Producer Surplus"?Official response from Nicole Bienfang completed
For "Surplus" food, you can use the "Food is Free" option.

Share programs for The Transition contributors would be a valuable service to The Transition community. Shares can be a share of animal products or shares of land or services. A person who currently holds something physical of value gives it to another person or group of people in exchange for either a share of the proceeds - as in a share of a harvest - or for services, such as assistance in maintaining a physical building, or for personal assistance or personal care.Official response from Nicole Bienfang incomplete
What you are describing is the purpose of BUDs. Users can already post their spaces/objects onto those respective pages and try to find others who are willing to trade if that is what they want to do. Is there something additional that you would like to see?
