:That is an excellent question! The gist is that it's really good for visitors to know that they will have a better experience (not get kicked out etc..) if they have a sponsor when they are in the space. This is because of the new "members and their guests only policy". So I'm guessing that the instructions to new visitors should try to strike a balance between "Visitors Welcome!" and "Here's exactly how to be an approved guest!" and "Look how easy it is to be an approved guest!" or something like that. And that is what is being worked on now... and you are participating in that very process! --[[User:Gadlen|gadlen]] ([[User talk:Gadlen|talk]]) 19:28, 18 November 2013 (UTC)

[edit] 71.135.35.112 Undos

Hi, My name is Marlon Boothe. I recently found out about your community. I'm excited about joining you guys. I'm currently looking for sponsors. I tried joining the irc chanel but something went wrong at the end of the set up. Please help. Thanks.

Noisebridge has now been designated as'...
Isn't that just a long winded version of "is"?

new visitors are just as welcome as always
If they are new, then they wouldn't have any reason to wonder why this statement might exist.

OTOH, gadlen, the most recent language using the terms "always welcome" is clearly more inviting and less cold to New Visitors. Although you yourself might disagree with this emphasis on attracting New Visitors to the Space, you might still want to more carefully review some of the Regular Members' proposals of this "more welcoming" matter on recent Discussion-list postings as well as in the last Meeting's minutes.

A new visitor doesn't care about the difference between full and associate members or that there is a difference. And saying it your way implies there is another, unstated type of member, which there isn't.

gadlen, It does seem from the Community Standards history tab, that User:Flamsmark just went ahead and unilaterally shut out 71.135.45.11x for her/his/their editing there. So while it is certainly Excellent to be able to actively participate in the Wiki editing process just like you and 71.135.45.11x here, there are doubts whether User:Flamsmark himself will likewise participate par excellence.


## Note from some of the recent Discussion-list postings by date that User:Flamsmark is likely taking the "Nuclear Option" in locking-out Wiki editing. Indeed, readers of this (including you gadlen) shouldn't ignore the recent Revision history tabs of both the Main Noisebridge Wiki and the Community_Standards wiki pages.

As House TV series' Lisa Cuddy says to the Hospital Board when they vote to kick her out in the Babies & Bathwater episode, "this may be the last decision you may ever have as Board Members".

Be forewarned, gadlen, you and other Wiki editors are definitely next!
