Hall monitor policy change
- QUESTION: Is there anyone who does not support the changes made by Matt and John to this page? What would have to change for you to do that?
- One objection was raised to first added bullet ("...achive: * the perception of the friendly inviting community")
- Bullet struck from text.
- Not clear how to balance increased specificity with the demands on the monitors themselves
- ACTION: continue discussion at future meeting, with input from current hall monitors
- Related discussion: Is the hall monitor policy useful and beneficial?
- ctyler: Fortunately, seems to be rarely needed.
- mmcgrath: Treating symptoms -- like a dome lowered over a leaking oil well.
- pfrields: The policy is an interim measure -- we need a way to eject people who consistently run afoul of it. We can have just as much constructive dissent without so much flamage.
- pfrields: negativity has a significant impact on the community, we need some general approaches to deal with it. Easier to deal with when a member is new to the community. Hall monitors can't remove people who are persistently negative, but can reduce the ripple-effect of their actions. We need a clear way of identifying, warning, and (if need be) removing people who are consistently causing problems.
- ACTION: Continue discussion on advisory-board (with possible submission of alternate proposals) and a future meeting.
- pfrields would like to see more discussion on advisory-board.
- Shall we use a biweekly schedule for public IRC team sessions?
- Next team suggestions?
- APPROVED: Public IRC team sessions on 1st and 3rd meeting of each month.
- ACTION: pfrields to draw up team meeting schedule.
- Thursday, 2010-05-20 UTC 1600
- IRC Public team meeting, depending on conclusion of discussion above
