A. "As a result of our prior conversation, we collectively propose: If a member has not identified themself as such by adding the
Category:Members to their wiki user page by $DATE, they shall no longer
be a member of Noisebridge."
>>> This is extremely radical step, I really wonder what is the threat of unidentified members (on hiatus or active) to the Noisebridge community. Why the people should be identified, why the deadlines? Explain please. It would be very reasonable to get at least in touch with the members letting them know that the things are changing, but I do not see this written anywhere.
>>> Within several or rather few months if not weeks Noisebridge is becoming the most restrictive place and community from the ones I've seen since I joined the movement, at least that is quite clear impression from the discuss. From the flexible approach of "be excellent to each other", rules are taking over.

Hello ya'll. Here are the highlights from last nights meeting.
A. Folks are putting together a new hackerspace in SF. Join us on #sfhackerspace on Freenode.
B. Alex Gudkov has just signed a lease on a 3500 sq ft space at Mission & 6th, perhaps for use hacking, or as a coop. Get in touch!
Consensus proposals from last week:
A. We discussed JC's proposal to secure the space. We agreed the following:
"It should be possible to secure Noisebridge when not in use. Noisebridge should be secured when not in use. All Noisebridge Members and Associate Members should have access to Noisebridge."
We decided to form a cabal to work on the details, and actually build this. We noted that we haven't decided to spend money on this, just agreed on the principle.
B. We discussed Tom's proposal to make the list of members public. We agreed the following:
"It shall not a secret whether a person is Member of Noisebridge. It shall be the responsibility of each member to identify themself as a member by adding the Category:Members to their wiki user page. Until a Member so identifies, they shall not be entitled to any privilege of Noisebridge Membership. Likewise, if a member is on Membership/Hiatus, they must indicate this by adding the Category:Hiatus to their wiki user page; this method of so identifying shall replace any other notification requirement for going on and coming off hiatus. Although it shall generally be a responsibility shared by all members to ensure that this category of identification is used correctly, in cases where its use is disputed, Noisebridge's secretary shall be the final arbiter."
Consensus Proposals for next week
A. "As a result of our prior conversation, we collectively propose: If a member has not identified themself as such by adding the Category:Members to their wiki user page by $DATE, they shall no longer be a member of Noisebridge."
B. Tom proposes that:
"If a paper membership application has been in the binder for more than twelve weeks, that application should be discarded. If that person still wants to become a member, they must start the application process over from scratch."
