talk to new people
H Noisebridge friends,
I am looking for some help with an arduino project. My mail is email@example.com
- 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.
Refurbishment for Reboot
JeffreyATW wrote:"food/music not necessary for rebooting the space"
The negatives of food/music are that there has been a rodent problem re:food, plus the idea that loudspeaker music should definitely not interrupt classes.
OTOH, for those not going out of their way to be killjoys (i.e., the typical "Bad Cop"), there should be little other problems with HAVING food/music around while rebooting the space. These are even likely to be good incentives to draw we folks to help out a bit more with the refurbishing action going on.
User:JeffreyATW's semi-Nuclear Option of 08-06-14
Submitted for review shall be today's arbitrary semi-Nuclear Option unilaterally enacted over non-vandalistic and beneficial edits.
Just as way back in November 2013 through February 2014, this time from today's [Protection log]....

Sure is an unprecedented number of retaliatory clampdowns all concentrated within a mere 73-minute period.
Straying away from being a good example of Noisebridge's Vision of Excellence now, are we?
OTOH, the primary benefit of allowing beneficial Anon-user edits is that this probably will, in fact, enhance Noisebridge's ability to meet (and exceed!) the Reboot IndieGoGo's fundraising expectations with respect to other concurrent fundraising events happening throughout the area that so many of us are aware of. Indeed, User:JeffreyATW's rather arbitrary decision to overly pack the main Wiki's 'Upcoming Events' section with nearly a dozen individual listings and his elected semi-Nuclear Option may neither be particularly helpful of overall Class-A-Thon scheduling+attendance nor helpful, ultimately, for current Reboot IndieGoGo fundraising efforts.
As of this writing, the ultimate IndieGoGo Reboot fundraising goal of $25k remains quite a ways off, so beneficial options that better encourage donations ought not to get so casually dismissed by User:JeffreyATW.
(A much less significantly-related aside is the fairly straightforward fact that User:JeffreyATW simply cannot block all Anon-user IP addresses solely by himself, whether those of beneficial contributors or otherwise.)
Again, the pulling off of User:JeffreyATW's semi-Nuclear Option above shall be submitted for review.
User:JeffreyATW may now proceed to retaliate against Discussion such as this by arbitrarily clamping down Anon-user edits in this section, i.e., this very comment.
Another one takes the Nuclear Option
