A couple months ago, we launched a forum asking: “Should OpenGov Spark OpenGovLoop?”. We presented several reasons – to make it easier to find in search engines and enable more people to benefit from it – and offered several options along a continuum of being totally closed to wide open. I give much more detail in the forum, so I’d encourage you to read that full description and also check out your colleagues’ comments.
Respondents overwhelmingly chose an option where anyone can join and view without moderation. But we’re feeling like we want to be a bit more conservative. So here’s what we would like to know now:
Would you prefer to keep some features of GovLoop protected? If so, which ones?
Right now, members have significant control through their Privacy Settings and blog publishing preferences and we will definitely do some education leading up to a rollout to ensure that everyone is comfortable with their level of disclosure.
If you were to keep some features protected, what would they be? Here’s a list of Features for your consideration:
– Member Profiles
– Multimedia (Videos and Photos)
– Resources (Data.GovLoop, Wiki, etc.)
As always, this is YOUR community. Have your say! We’ll collect and monitor feedback for one week, then share our rollout strategy with the community shortly thereafter.
Thank you never really captures how we feel about your honesty, transparency and collaboration.
And yet we’ll say it anyway: Thank You!
