Loving all the discussions on this topic - wish I'd know about this community and discussion when we were starting CollAction. 
 

I'd be more than happy to share my experiences so far and hear the ideas of the community in some kind of group call / Q&A session if people would be interested. It's actually a good time, since we're currently rethinking our strategy going forward with collaction.org. Just let me know.

I think a retrospective [https://www.lesswrong.com/tag/postmortems-and-retrospectives]post about CollAction would be highly appreciated here (even though it hasn't ended, perhaps there's a better word).

Hi Bob,

I'm new to Lesswrong, but really happy to find you writing about CollAction - which i set up with a few friends a while ago. I think your suggestions are really great - thanks for that! Some are very much in line with our own ideas, but we simply haven't had the resources yet to implement it (we're all volunteers and we're spending quite some time and energy on other project like the Slow Fashion Movement, which spun out of collaction.org as the most successful crowdaction and started to live a life of its own) . 

So, if there's a community here... (read more)

@CooperSmout pointed me towards this discussion (thanks @Stoat) so I thought I'd jump in :). I co-founded collaction.org a while ago while contemplating a similar question that started this thread.

I think we have a pretty ok proof of concept now and some proof points, but there is obviously still a lot of room for improvement and lots of untapped potential (some in line with some of the good suggestions here!).
