until now, 99.9 % of our articles have been composities of the collective intelligence of the web itself, i.e. not self-written articles, so your approach here is new, since the p2p foundation is a collective and does not have a unified voice, if you are sharing an opinion, it's always best to sign. Style should be easy to read, that's about the only requirement I think. we write for the 'educated layperson' ...

The page on Sociocracy is outdated and not fully accurate. I can't tell if it is intended to be an archived copy of the Twin Oaks Community understanding of Sociocracy or an  interpretation of it. (Twin Oaks was one of the first intentional communities to use sociocracy and their page hasn't been updated in years and years.)

I would like to substantially rewrite it but don't know the protocol for this.  On Wikipedia I would just rewrite it.

Looks great

Looks lovely. I like the positivism of the "do's" and "do avoids" ^_^ --BonnieOWong 19:19, 16 July 2010 (UTC)

Problems with Updated Layout/Theme

The current layout does not offer tabs and there is no advice on how to get to a discussion page or know there is one.

If I could get to my preference settings (which I can't find either), I might be able to overcome this. As it is, I a stymied.

What tone should (or can) I write articles in?

I use passive voice, NPOV and academese--enclyclopedia style. But I can write more casually, or a least in laymen style.

Correcting Pages — Sociocracy

The page on Sociocracy is outdated and not fully accurate. I can't tell if it is intended to be an archived copy of the Twin Oaks Community understanding of Sociocracy or an interpretation of it. (Twin Oaks was one of the first intentional communities to use sociocracy and their page hasn't been updated in years and years.)

I would like to substantially rewrite it but don't know the protocol for this. On Wikipedia I would just rewrite it.
