Watch the Pirate Bay documentary premiere!

Hi Noisebridge friends,

I just got the chance to check out your beautiful space and wanted to share my film about the Pirate Bay with your community.

We are releasing the film for free online from the premiere on Jan 8th.

Please check out the trailer here

Please share!

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.

Sorry about the heavy undo action here Here's a rationale for my edits:

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.

consider reading up on
No, it's important they read up on it.

OTOH, gadlen, the most recent language using the term "review"' succinctly hints at less in-depth "reading" of the required access methods; a definite +plus+ to many more of we excellent time-constrained folks.
Why indeed is it so "important" that New Visitors undergo the ordeal of being required to slog through something that even remotely approaches an undergraduate essay to find out what they really need to know??!!

but it's best to visit when Full or Associate Members are present
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.

Dearest, those are excellent edits, thanks! I'm glad we got to bounce them back and forth a bit.
PS. A popular way to show discussion threading in Mediawiki is to add a ":" to the beginning of each line. That indents your text. Then the next response gets a "::", etc... It's not perfect, but that's what Wikipedia uses. Keep rocking. --gadlen (talk) 19:11, 18 November 2013 (UTC)

gadlen, It does seem from the Community Standards history tab, that User:Flamsmark just went ahead and unilaterally shut out 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 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. And closely watch the Events Revision history tab to see when User:Flamsmark will "protect" that page too.
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!

Required Slogging

(, I moved your comment to a new section so it's more easily viewable. My response follows) writes: Why indeed is it so "important" that New Visitors undergo the ordeal of being required to slog through something that even remotely approaches an undergraduate essay to find out what they really need to know??!!

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! --gadlen (talk) 19:28, 18 November 2013 (UTC)


H Noisebridge friends,

I am looking for some help with an arduino project. My mail is


Doros, you'd do well writing your full question to the Noisebridge-Discussion mailing list --gadlen (talk) 00:49, 21 November 2013 (UTC)

Really? Protecting the front page from random anonymous trolling (not even good trolling, just people opportunistically replacing the front page with racial slurs and porn), and making it so that people have to register an account (any account, even a bullshit account) is "bossing"? Last I checked, we had a lock on the front gate to Noisebridge, is that a problem too?

Look, the admins are getting overwhelmed. This is an experiment. The protection level is "Block new and unregistered users." That means the "barrier to entry" is still pretty low -- make an account and then write something in a user page (doesn't even have to be "real"). You could even make several accounts. The point is to increase friction, not to prevent people from editing.

Is this unreasonable? I am asking honestly. Educate me. Nthmost (talk)
