2014-02-18 Robin Ban Pidgeon -- Pidgeon is unwelcome at Noisebridge. They are prohibited from entering the space or participating in the community. Deferred in favor of a six-week do-ocratic ban agreed between Ron and [[Pigeon: Tom
2014-02-18 Tom Ban Lee Sonko Pull request Tom
2014-02-04 Tom Git repo for policy -- The canonical location for Noisebridge policies and processes shall be a git repository. The canonical process to modify these policies and processes shall be the merging of a proposed changed version. The desicion to merge a patch shall be made by Noisebridge's consensus process. The most recent version of all such policies and procedures shall also be posted at an appropriate page on the Noisebridge wiki. It shall be the responsibility of the Secretary to operate and maintain this system. Consensed Tom
2014-02-04 Tom Lowenthal Membership renaming -- Renaming the category “Noisebridge Members” to the “Noisebridge Council”, and renaming the category “Associate Members” to “Noisebridge Members”. This change extends not only to our operations, but also to our bylaws, so that the effect is only a change of name but does not change the rights or privileges of any person or category of people. Consensed Tom Lowenthal
2014-02-04 Tom No changes to consensus proposals -- Proposals shall only be elegible to reach consensus in a weekly meeting in the exact form that they were agreed at a previous weekly meeting. Items shall not be elegible for consensus unless they were recorded on the Current Consensus Items page on the Noisebridge wiki before 24 hours have passed after the end of the weekly meeting in which they were proposed. If a proposal is modified at a weekly meeting, it shall not be elegible for consensus at that meeting. Consensed Tom

We will need about a dozen working fire extinguishers for the space. NB will also allocate $200.00 per year, with an initial cost not to exceed $300.00 initial cost." Consensed Jarrod

2013-12-10 Tom It is the responsibility of all users of Noisebridge (guests, Members, and Associate Members) to contribute to Noisebridge as they are able. An individual's contribution should be proportionate with that person's use of Noisebridge and its resources.

2013-11-26 Al Sweigart The "optional member dues" change to the 2013-10-15 "Associates Member" consensus item is a large enough change that discussion of the consensus item should have been extended so that members not in attendance could debate it. This consensus item invalidates the 2013-10-15 consensus item so that this discussion can take place and the membership can come to a consensus/block it. Blocked Al Sweigart

It shall be the responsibility of each member to identify themself as a member by adding the Category:Members to their wiki user page. Until a Member so identifies, they shall not be entitled to any privilege of Noisebridge Membership. Likewise, if a member is on Membership/Hiatus, they must indicate this by adding the Category:Hiatus to their wiki user page; this method of so identifying shall replace any other notification requirement for going on and coming off hiatus. Although it shall generally be a responsibility shared by all members to ensure that this category of identification is used correctly, in cases where its use is disputed, Noisebridge's secretary shall be the final arbiter. So say we all Tom
2013-11-12 JC It should be possible to secure Noisebridge when not in use. Noisebridge should be secured when not in use. All Noisebridge Members and Associate Members should have access to Noisebridge. So say we all Tom

Noisebridge's space shall be open only to members and associate members at any time. A member or associate member may at any time invite a person into Noisebridge and host that person at Noisebridge as long as that member or associate member remains at Noisebridge.
