<div>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."
</div></div><div><br>>>> 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.<br>
