[Noisebridge-discuss] A modest proposal.

I like Kelly's solution to this problem.  The biggest problem I see is
doing nothing at all and people blocking it for silly and illogical
reasons.  I also like the idea of a member or a trusted person being
responsible for a guest.  The way I see it is if we want a 24/7 space it is
a great thing.  With all great things, come great responsibility and we are
avoiding that.

What I would suggest is temporarily closing at night until we implement
something better than what is going on now(nothing).  We could vote every
week on it.  This way Nosebridge is a safer drama free place for now and
will hopefully motivate the "No members hours" people to get going.

Please be aware I am not a member and would most likely be affected by
Nosebridge not being open at night.
