    • @Tanja posted a proposition about how to include the “photo donation form” on the website in #communication
    • @Chagai brings up the matrix system and the possibilities again. @Shawn suggest to do a case study. We’re discussing two fuctions: chat and forum and channel. @Ludovica explains there was a forum but moderating became to difficult. @Chagai would like a chat for circles so members can connect with likeminded members. @Lex notes joining a circle now only results in seeing who has equal interests, there’s no possibility to connect with multiple circle members at the same time. @Chagai explains circle channels could be used to share messages from the team directly to circle members.
  • Action points and outcomes
    • @Chagai posted a proposition about how to suggest a videocall to members in #support.
    • @Shawn is in contact with Sabrina and will check up on her.
    • @Shawn is going to set up a “Friday happy hour” for our members.
