|2014-05-20||Jeffrey via Jake||Improve wording about associate membership.|| What was consensed as
"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. No other person shall be permitted at Noisebridge at any other time."
should be changed to
"Noisebridge is open to Members, Associate Members, and guests sponsored by same, at all times. Any person who is not one of the above may be asked to leave if no Member or Associate Member present wishes to sponsor them at that time, with no other justification being necessary. People coming to Noisebridge who don't know anyone should be introduced to members who are present so that sponsorship can occur if members present choose to do so at that time. Noisebridge should present itself as "open to public visitors and guests as often as possible"
|2014-05-20||Naomi||Rescind Consensus Item about wiki tokens.||Members should not be forced to identify themselves on the public wiki. NB has a paper Member folder for a good reason. The Secretary's primary job is to maintain the accuracy of the Member List; public (i.e. extra-Noisebridge) identification must not be required for the Secretary to do this job. Relevant consensus item passed at Meeting_Notes_2013_11_12 and begins with "It shall not a secret..."||Naomi|
|2014-03-24||Kevin||Revoke Tom's council privileges||Blocked until Tom is able to attend a Tuesday meeting. We discussed this on 2014.04.08 and resolved that it is reasonable to wait for Tom to attend a meeting to proceed with this, if Tom is not at the meeting, please skip this item. -- revisited on 2013/05/13 based on tangential concerns relating to Tom's position as Secretary ([see notes]); if Tom can't come to a meeting, then Casey, Ron, and/or Madelynn need to either stand aside or propose a way to satisfy community's concerns.||Kevin|
