Loomio looked quite cool and potentially useful when I tried it.

It doesn't look great with javascript disabled though. Is javascript inherently unsafe?

What could we use it for? Right now, I can imagine it just being useful for votes, but there are a handful of things that admins do that aren't vote-related.

I imagine it could also be used for more localised mediation specific to subraddles, community policy decisions, all that junk- the simple stuff, I imagine?

What would be the purpose of that, and what are the benefits of either Loomio or Konsent over how the forums currently work?

Decentralizing policy and other power to be democratic rather than admin-controlled, like the original plan for Konsent. IIRC Loomio has hooks, and one of the things that was considered was subraddles using Loomio for moderator decisions and all.

We already vote on policies though (and admittedly while it's not explicitly stated, I assume it's by consensus, not majority), does Loomio also democratise the enforcement of the rules?

PS: Not vetoing or anything, but I don't understand the proposal.

It's essentially meant to use hooks to decentralize the power of 'literally everything' from the admins, preferably by an auto-moderator bot for some subraddles based on Loomio.

As of now, almost everything from deleting accounts to actually going through with the vote results goes through admins.

It's general what it is now, but with hooks that automate it more cleanly as well as a proper system with multiple ways of displaying polls, votes or proposals.

It's much like what's detailed in /f/konsent except with developers that currently work on it.

That sounds good then. So far I thought that things like Loomio or Konsent are more suited for political decisions, but this automation thing as you explain it indeed can also do "admin" work.
