  • (21:37) <Sacha>Okay the big highlights of the meeting were choosing the new theme for the website
  • (21:37) <Sacha>we decided to go with the german theme that nypp is also using, though we're going to tweak the colors and a few other things
  • (21:37) <kusanagi>ok
  • (21:37) <kusanagi>it's a nice theme

  • (21:41) <Sacha>mildbeard i know right bro
  • (21:41) <kusanagi>personally, i hate the engagement thing
  • (21:41) <kusanagi>but that's my quip on the nypp site
  • (21:41) - jarod_ quit *(Quit: Web client closed)
  • (21:42) <Sacha>I like the engagement for uspp because we have multiple ways
  • (21:42) <Sacha>Hopefully one day we will allow people to get involved by moderating the forums or posting news articles
  • (21:42) <kusanagi>"Get Involved" is my suggestion. just throwing it out there
  • (21:42) <Sacha>so we can put up 'job posings' there
  • (21:42) <Sacha>oh I like get involed a lot more
  • (21:42) <kusanagi>job postings?
  • (21:42) <Sacha>We are going to change the wording of course
  • (21:42) <itspara>Yeah, I like "get Involved"
  • (21:42) <Sacha>yeah like.. "We have openings for forum moderators"
  • (21:43) <itspara>lol wut
  • (21:43) <kusanagi>job isn't a good word choice
  • (21:43) <Sacha>Spitballing, word choice can be discussed later
  • (21:44) <itspara>I think stuff like moderators doesnt need to be advertised past meetings and the forums
  • (21:44) <kusanagi>yeah
  • (21:44) <kusanagi>ALSO
  • (21:44) <kusanagi>big note
  • (21:44) <kusanagi>the theme IS NOT CC-0
  • (21:44) <itspara>true
  • (21:44) <kusanagi>We got an email correcting us on that
  • (21:44) <kusanagi>so make sure to have a note on that
  • (21:44) <kusanagi>it's CC-BY
  • (21:45) <itspara>yeah... it says it in the theme itself >.>
  • (21:45) <Sacha>Be sure to let claeb know if he doesn't
  • (21:45) <Sacha>I am involved in making it look pretty
  • (21:45) <kusanagi>itspara, i know, but it was still posted as CC-0
  • (21:46) <kusanagi>so, i'll let CalebL[laptop] know.

  • (21:48) <kusanagi>sinc that fell apart
  • (21:49) <kusanagi>sacha, you'd like to dissolve it/
  • (21:49) <Sacha>Exactamente
  • (21:49) <kusanagi>ok

  • (21:52) <OrionSteele>what is the convention committee supposed to do again and why should we dissolve it?
  • (21:52) <mildbeard>why debate? It was a non-committee that never really did anything. Let's just dissolve it.
  • (21:52) <mildbeard>It was supposed to create a convention so we could have an annual meeting and elect officers.
  • (21:53) <Sacha>It has done nothing and we are discussing the elections on the forums now
  • (21:53) <mildbeard>We wound up just moving to have a regular IRC meeting where we'd elect them.

  • (22:07) <kusanagi>Sacha, this is important.
  • (22:08) <Sacha>Yeah, which is why we should spend hours talking about it
  • (22:08) <Sacha>and it is 10pm
  • (22:08) <OrionSteele>the negotiations are a great opportunity to network with other groups and forge alliances
  • (22:08) <Sacha>Our captain isn't even here

  • (22:14) <mildbeard>I've been reading through the speech, it's the kind of thing that makes your blood boil.
  • (22:15) <OrionSteele>but that should be good...the speech and the video with the guy talking about his experience giving the speech
  • (22:15) <mildbeard>Great speech.
  • (22:15) <kusanagi>Again, Mozart will come in next week to discuss it more with us. But please start getting your thoughts together for a statement
  • (22:15) <kusanagi>it is great
  • (22:15) <OrionSteele>:) thanks travis really hit the right tone...makes us debaters proud
  • (22:15) <kusanagi>:)
  • (22:15) <kusanagi>next item
  • (22:16) <kusanagi>is nominations for officers
  • (22:16) <Sacha>We should push this off another week
  • (22:16) <kusanagi>Why?
  • (22:16) <Sacha>Neither Caleb nor Travis are here
  • (22:16) <mildbeard>yeah why?
  • (22:16) <kusanagi>you just have to nominate
  • (22:16) <kusanagi>no need to accept tonight, from my understanding
  • (22:16) <Sacha>So they do not have to accept the nominations
  • (22:17) <Sacha>K go then
  • (22:17) <kusanagi>Anyone have any?
  • (22:17) <Sacha>Travis wants captain, and Caleb is talking about QM
  • (22:17) <itspara>Why can nominate?
  • (22:17) <itspara>*Who
  • (22:17) <Sacha>Itspara States
  • (22:17) <Sacha>Or a state can second a nomination
  • (22:17) <kusanagi>states nom
  • (22:17) <itspara>Just member states I assume
  • (22:17) <Sacha>So someone would have to second Travis and Caleb for it to be legitimate
  • (22:17) <mildbeard>Anyone have nominations who can't officially make them, just IM me.
  • (22:18) <Rush>I'll nominate Kusanagi, Lindsay-Anne Brunner, and Bill Bixby to be Captain
  • (22:18) <mildbeard>I'll nominate Travis for Captain and Caleb for QM.
  • (22:18) <mildbeard>ooh, Bill Bixby will be hard to beat.
  • (22:18) <kusanagi>lol
  • (22:19) <kusanagi>Anyone for FM noms?
  • (22:19) <Rush>*(seriously, Kusanagi)
  • (22:19) <Sacha>Can you run for two positions?
  • (22:19) <itspara>I think you COULD but you could only accept one
  • (22:19) <kusanagi>Not sure, but why not?
  • (22:20) <Sacha>Okay, the who is doing FO
  • (22:20) <Sacha>was that an actual nom Rush?
  • (22:20) <kusanagi>I just asked.
  • (22:20) <QuazarGuy>votes would be placed for candidates that won't accept
  • (22:20) <Rush>Yes
  • (22:20) <mildbeard>I would think anyone who is running for captain ought to be able to run for FO too, and they can simply drop out if they are elected captain.
  • (22:20) <Sacha>exactly what i am worried about, then you will have to accept a runner up
  • (22:20) <kusanagi>mildbeard, that's a good idea
  • (22:21) <QuazarGuy>then FM will have to be voted for after Captain
  • (22:21) <Sacha>If the same person wins Captain and FO then the people could be forced with a runner up
  • (22:21) <Sacha>Maybe the third in the overall would have been first if it had been just the two
  • (22:22) <itspara>sacha has a point
  • (22:22) <kusanagi>if one is elected Capt, then they should be required to step out of thge FO race
  • (22:22) <Sacha>If we are doing this properly
  • (22:22) <Sacha>Then people should be going back to their states and agreeing on who to vote for
  • (22:22) <mildbeard>No
  • (22:23) <mildbeard>let's not slow this down any more.
  • (22:23) <Sacha>We wouldn't be
  • (22:23) <mildbeard>Delegates have the authority of their states to participate.
  • (22:23) <mildbeard>They have their own internal processes for collaborating.
  • (22:23) <Sacha>the expectation is that people will go back this week to talk and then do the voting next week
  • (22:23) <Sacha>That is why we do not do them the same meeting
  • (22:23) <mildbeard>OK I agree with that. I thought you meant before nominating.
  • (22:24) <mildbeard>sorry
  • (22:24) <Sacha>That would be fine unless a favored candidate for fO suddenly drops out
  • (22:24) <kusanagi>?
  • (22:24) <Sacha>then the state rep has to choose on their own who to favor now
  • (22:24) <Sacha>mildbeard no prob
  • (22:24) <mildbeard>Don't see it as an issue. The representative casts the vote for the state.
  • (22:25) <QuazarGuy>if the FO nominee drops out the rep has to consult their state
  • (22:25) <Sacha>QuazarGuy they can't, won't have time
  • (22:25) <Rush>what does FO mean?
  • (22:25) <kusanagi>there is no FO nominee
  • (22:25) <Sacha>First Officer*
  • (22:25) <Rush>oh
  • (22:25) <Sacha>Compromise states reps go back and do a plan B
  • (22:26) <Sacha>if your pick for FO doesn't get it, who will the rep vote for
  • (22:26) <Sacha>that should cover it
  • (22:26) <QuazarGuy>we're looking at a two week long election period if we allow multiple position running candidates
  • (22:26) <mildbeard>No I disagree.
  • (22:26) <Sacha>QuazarGuy, what about my addition?
  • (22:26) <mildbeard>We are looking at a single meeting.
  • (22:26) <mildbeard>Representatives should come prepared to vote.
  • (22:26) <kusanagi>ok
  • (22:26) <kusanagi>Sacha, as of now, who are the noms and for what?
  • (22:26) <Sacha>Mildbeard do you agree to my compromise?
  • (22:26) <QuazarGuy>with a contingency for each possible outcome?
  • (22:27) <mildbeard>You should know who you support or have the authority to make a determination personally.
  • (22:27) <Sacha>quazarguy exacty
  • (22:27) <Sacha>Or you can have a contingency for the possible outcomes
  • (22:27) <mildbeard>If the state doesn't trust their representative to make a decision, then they should get a better rep.
  • (22:27) <kusanagi>^
  • (22:27) <stubuntu>agreed
  • (22:27) <QuazarGuy>I think Travis wouldn't allow this
  • (22:27) <Sacha>Pointless.
  • (22:28) <kusanagi>I don't think so either
  • (22:28) <kusanagi>and I asked a question
  • (22:28) <kusanagi>Sacha, what is the full list of noms and for what positions?
  • (22:28) <Sacha>Mildbeard Do you want one meeting voting. If so there is a compromise on the table that will allow that.
  • (22:28) <mildbeard>Can you explain what the compromise is?
  • (22:29) <Sacha>Kusanagi Captain: Kusanagi, Travis, Bill
  • (22:29) <Sacha>QM: Caleb
  • (22:29) <kusanagi>Erm, Bill was a joke.
  • (22:29) <kusanagi>it's okay though, I didn't get it either
  • (22:29) <mildbeard>Bill Bixby is an actor from the 1970s.
  • (22:30) <Sacha>mildbeard If there is a person that is running for two spots, states pick their second choice for the position
  • (22:30) <Sacha>A contigency plan
  • (22:30) <Sacha>Then the rep will know who to vote for
  • (22:30) <kusanagi>but at this time there aren't any running for two spots
  • (22:30) <mildbeard>I think that a candidate should be able to run for more than one position.
  • (22:31) <kusanagi>and the nominations were due tonight
  • (22:31) <Sacha>mildbeard they can, with that compromise
  • (22:31) <mildbeard>I don't think that we should dictate anything about how states or their representatives make decisions. So I don't think the compromise is needed.
  • (22:31) <kusanagi>I fully agree with mildbeard
  • (22:32) <Sacha>kusanagi Do you plan to run for first officer
  • (22:32) <mildbeard>In Massachusetts, I have the authority to make a decision for our state. If there are any issues where I'm not sure, then I simply contact the officers of our state and ask them.
  • (22:32) <kusanagi>Since there aren't any noms for FM, this is my idea
  • (22:32) <kusanagi>hear it out
  • (22:33) <Sacha>Fuck I will self nominate if there is no one else
  • (22:33) <kusanagi>whoever loses the vote for capt, has the option of FO
  • (22:33) <Sacha>NOPE
  • (22:33) <kusanagi>language, Sacha
  • (22:33) <Sacha>NOPE
  • (22:33) <mildbeard>How about we nominate Kusanagi and Travis to be FO.
  • (22:33) <kusanagi>Could do that too
  • (22:33) <Sacha>Not without Travis' permission
  • (22:33) <kusanagi>You can nom him without permoission
  • (22:33) <Sacha>If he doesn't want it, he'd be stuck with it
  • (22:33) <mildbeard>he can certainly decline
  • (22:33) <Sacha>Oh yeah he doesn't have to accept
  • (22:33) <kusanagi>he would have to accept or decline the nomination
  • (22:33) <Sacha>then do it
  • (22:34) <Sacha>So a state needs to nom travis and kusanagi
  • (22:34) <mildbeard>I'm hereby nominating kusanagi and travis and sacha for First Officer. *(Sacha stuck her neck out.)
  • (22:34) <stubuntu>second
  • (22:34) <kusanagi>I accept both nominations for captain and first officer.
  • (22:35) <Sacha>I accept, so we just need to shake down Travis and caleb
  • (22:35) <Sacha>does anyone else want to go for QM
  • (22:35) <Sacha>I am pretty sure that Caleb wants it, we've been talking about it
  • (22:36) <Sacha>but competition is always cool
  • (22:36) * kusanagi plays the Jeopardy! song
  • (22:37) * mildbeard plays "yo ho ho..."
  • (22:37) <kusanagi>2 min, and i'll close noms
  • (22:37) <mildbeard>I have an impending issue, will you lose quorum if I drop?
  • (22:37) <MrSquared>om nom nom
  • (22:38) <kusanagi>no, we won't
  • (22:38) <Sacha>Oh yeah for transparency and everything
  • (22:38) <Sacha>I may be moving to Canada this Winter
  • (22:38) <mildbeard>cool, where?
  • (22:38) <Sacha>So I will not be a resident, in case that affects people's votes
  • (22:38) - stubuntu quit *(Ping timeout: 244 seconds)
  • (22:38) <Sacha>My friend and I are looking at Toronto, she wants to model with a company based there
  • (22:39) <QuazarGuy>I'm surprised that CA with 300+ people has no one to offer up
  • (22:40) <Sacha>QuazarGuy Same, but i wonder if they are purely focused on state level
  • (22:40) <Sacha>which is why not
  • (22:40) <QuazarGuy>I think nominations should be opened up beyond IRC
  • (22:41) <kusanagi>QuazarGuy, it was mentioned in the meetings and over the SAB list
  • (22:41) <kusanagi>a week is long enough.
  • (22:41) <QuazarGuy>my contention is that I'm not convinced states are consulting their members on this
  • (22:41) <kusanagi>I'm not either
  • (22:42) <kusanagi>but how are we to enforce that?
  • (22:42) - stubuntu joined
  • (22:42) <Sacha>QuazarGuy I think when we work towards asynchronous meetings it will change but for now a person who doesn't use IRC or actively participate in the USPP in some way would be odd imo
  • (22:42) <Sacha>they are officers of the PNC not USPP
  • (22:42) <QuazarGuy>I motion to add a page to the site and an announcement on social media of how to nominate and gain a following
  • (22:43) <Sacha>I like that, but i think the goal should be next year's elections
  • (22:43) <Sacha>Which will be much more planned out than this
  • (22:43) <QuazarGuy>I think we could do it this week
  • (22:43) - Brady|School quit *(Quit: Leaving)
  • (22:43) <kusanagi>Sacha, most definitely
  • (22:44) <Sacha>QuazarGuy The issue is that people are tired of pushing it back and I don't think that a week is enough time for a random to get a following
  • (22:44) <QuazarGuy>I would be willing to help with content of the page and announcements
  • (22:44) <Sacha>My only issue is that if they wanted to help they should have gotten involved somehow
  • (22:44) <stubuntu>agreed sacha
  • (22:44) <Sacha>if they can't make the meetings before, how could they in order to be an officer
  • (22:44) <kusanagi>I fully agree with Sacha
  • (22:45) <Rush>Guys
  • (22:45) <Rush>I'm going to bed, adios
  • (22:45) <Sacha>When we break dependence on the IRC, it will be a different story and we should carefully plan out elections and nominations next year.
  • (22:45) <Sacha>Goodnight rush
  • (22:45) <kusanagi>night rush
  • (22:45) <mildbeard>ok adios me too
  • (22:45) - mildbeard quit *(Quit: Leaving)
  • (22:45) - Rush quit *(Quit: http://www.mibbit.com ajax IRC Client)
  • (22:45) <kusanagi>still at quorum
  • (22:46) <QuazarGuy>there is a motion
  • (22:46) <Sacha>QuazarGuy is that acceptable to you? I will help you plan it and make it for the wiki. If no one seconds.
  • (22:46) <kusanagi>Motion failed, sorry
  • (22:47) <stubuntu>point of clarification, what was that motion?
  • (22:47) <kusanagi>I motion to add a page to the site and an announcement on social media of how to nominate and gain a following
  • (22:47) <kusanagi>that was the motion
  • (22:47) <stubuntu>thanks
  • (22:48) <Sacha>Was the motion to affect this year's election?
  • (22:48) <Sacha>Because you would first need to motion to allow nominations until next week
  • (22:48) <kusanagi>This is also true
  • (22:48) <kusanagi>but it failed
  • (22:48) <kusanagi>So..
  • (22:48) <Sacha>I don't want to ignore QuazarGUy's feelings just because they are unpopular
  • (22:49) <Sacha>Let's work out something that he is comfortable with, I think the only thing that everyone else wants
  • (22:49) <kusanagi>it's not being ignored
  • (22:49) <Sacha>is to get the elections done next week
  • (22:49) <QuazarGuy>it is fine
  • (22:49) <kusanagi>and QuazarGuy's motion would have extended the time.
  • (22:49) <Sacha>Quazarguy You are sure?
  • (22:49) <kusanagi>the motion failed, let's move on. sorry Jeff.
  • (22:50) <QuazarGuy>no need to apologize
  • (22:50) <Sacha>We could extend the nomination period until Friday, and that would give states plenty of time
  • (22:50) <kusanagi>No
  • (22:50) <kusanagi>A week is plenty
  • (22:50) <Sacha>It was only announced in the meeting and SAB
  • (22:50) <Sacha>we did not give it a fair chance
  • (22:50) <QuazarGuy>it is WA's fault we weren't aware of nominations being due this week
  • (22:51) <kusanagi>it was given a fair chance
  • (22:51) <Sacha>QuazarGuy If you are turly comfortable with it, then I will drop it. If not, I know that I can come up with a compromise.
  • (22:51) <QuazarGuy>it's fine
  • (22:52) <kusanagi>Ok next up is a formation of a press committee
  • (22:52) <kusanagi>let's put it simply
  • (22:52) <kusanagi>we need one
  • (22:52) <kusanagi>we have no press releases going out
  • (22:53) <Sacha>Travis with nix it
  • (22:53) <Sacha>say be bold
  • (22:53) <kusanagi>LOL
  • (22:53) <kusanagi>how could i have forgotten
  • (22:53) <kusanagi>so I will BE BOOOOOLD
  • (22:53) <kusanagi>and ask that the state reps vote to create it tonight
  • (22:53) <QuazarGuy>do we have anyone willing to be part of this committee?
  • (22:53) <kusanagi>Yes, myself
  • (22:53) <Sacha>Anyone beside you
  • (22:53) <stubuntu>I will as weel
  • (22:53) <kusanagi>And anyone and everyone who wants to
  • (22:54) <stubuntu>well*
  • (22:54) <Sacha>just make a forum post or twitter or something
  • (22:54) <Sacha>no need for a vote and I would really dislike doing it when Travis is not here
  • (22:54) <Sacha>Because we all know that he would be against it since he nixed two committees the past two weeks
  • (22:55) <QuazarGuy>that doesn't mean he'd be against this one
  • (22:55) <kusanagi>Being bold
  • (22:55) <Sacha>It doesn't, but I wish to wait and find out from him.
  • (22:55) <kusanagi>Why?
  • (22:55) <kusanagi>Why are we so dependant on an authority figure?
  • (22:55) <QuazarGuy>the formation of a committee isn't procedure and doesn't concern him
  • (22:56) <kusanagi>Exactly
  • (22:56) <Sacha>I have said all I will about my opinion. I will not rise to the bait. If a state wishes to make a motion then they will.
  • (22:57) <QuazarGuy>I motion to form a press committee
  • (22:57) <kusanagi>Would any state like to make a motion to form a press committee?
  • (22:57) <kusanagi>there we go
  • (22:57) <kusanagi>Any second?
  • (22:57) <OrionSteele>second
  • (22:57) <kusanagi>ok, any debate on this or shall we move to vote?
  • (22:58) <QuazarGuy>I hope you're up to it kusanagi and stubuntu
  • (22:58) <kusanagi>I am
  • (22:58) <stubuntu>I am
  • (22:58) * kusanagi highfives stubuntu
  • (22:58) <kusanagi>go team go
  • (22:58) <QuazarGuy>let's vote
  • (22:58) <kusanagi>aight, voting on the formation of a press committees
  • (22:58) <kusanagi>-s
  • (22:59) <stubuntu>* stubuntu recieves highfive
  • (22:59) <stubuntu>hm, didn't do that right
  • (22:59) <kusanagi>./me
  • (22:59) <OrionSteele>aye
  • (22:59) <QuazarGuy>yeah it's i before e except after c
  • (22:59) <stubuntu>aye
  • (22:59) <QuazarGuy>aye
  • (22:59) <kusanagi>QuazarGuy, vote?
  • (23:00) <QuazarGuy>did
  • (23:00) <MrSquared>aye
  • (23:00) <kusanagi>oh, oops
  • (23:00) <kusanagi>sorry about that
  • (23:00) <kusanagi>and calling the vote. the tally, Sacha
  • (23:01) <Sacha>Looks like 4
  • (23:01) <kusanagi>motion passed, press committee formred
  • (23:02) <kusanagi>hooray
  • (23:02) * kusanagi throws confetti
  • (23:02) <kusanagi>ok, to AOB now
  • (23:02) <kusanagi>Sacha, looks like it's mostly you, wanna go over your stuff?
  • (23:03) <Sacha>Sure first one is putting a person in charge of being a source of contact for new people
  • (23:03) - VLD quit *(Quit: AndroIRC - Android IRC Client *( http://www.androirc.com ))
  • (23:04) <Sacha>We have a page on the wiki that is titled 'want to help out' which is great, but there needs to be a person to contact so that the PNC knows about them
  • (23:04) <Sacha>or a person to help them get into contact with the right group of people
  • (23:04) <kusanagi>officers? someone invoved with pnc?
  • (23:04) <Sacha>We can either put a person in charge of it, or add it to an officer's duties
  • (23:04) <kusanagi>I don't mind being put down
  • (23:04) <Sacha>I would rather it wasn't you honestly
  • (23:05) <Sacha>not for personal reasons but I think that telling people to go do the reasearch themself
  • (23:05) <kusanagi>no
  • (23:05) <Sacha>Will scare people off, so I would personally like someone who is willing to help the new people
  • (23:05) <QuazarGuy>that's not an issue for this discussion
  • (23:05) <Sacha>that is merely my personal opinion though, which doesn't dictate anything
  • (23:05) <Sacha>Of course it is?
  • (23:05) <Sacha>We are discussing who to put in charge of it
  • (23:06) <QuazarGuy>why should we base the duty on who's in the office?
  • (23:06) <Sacha>We don't need to
  • (23:06) <Sacha>It was merely one way to do it, I offered picking an individual as well
  • (23:06) <kusanagi>I just volunteered for it. I usually know the right people
  • (23:06) <QuazarGuy>anyway, I think it makes sense to make this a duty for either the FO or QM
  • (23:07) <Sacha>Kusanagi I know you did, which is why I made my response to you volunteering.
  • (23:07) <Sacha>QuazarGuy I would be fine with that as well
  • (23:07) <QuazarGuy>well we should pick one
  • (23:07) <kusanagi>Sacha, can you please act slightly more professional?
  • (23:07) <QuazarGuy>QM keeps all the records and should have contacts for everyone necessary
  • (23:07) <Sacha>QuazarGuy I was thinking the same thing
  • (23:08) <Sacha>On the other hand the FO really isn't doing very much
  • (23:08) <QuazarGuy>FO should have contacts for state's officers
  • (23:08) <kusanagi>i do
  • (23:09) <QuazarGuy>lol I'm not asking
  • (23:09) <kusanagi>i know
  • (23:09) <Sacha>The FO is also in charge of general meetings
  • (23:09) <QuazarGuy>I want to know what others opinions are
  • (23:09) <Sacha>which is another place where they may be approached for help
  • (23:09) <Sacha>So it would make sense to be their duty
  • (23:09) <QuazarGuy>how are state's handling this issue?
  • (23:10) <Sacha>No idea, orionsteele are you still in?
  • (23:10) <OrionSteele>yes
  • (23:10) <Sacha>How do you handle new people in CAPP?
  • (23:11) <QuazarGuy>well I've been sending people to the secretary/quartermaster
  • (23:11) <Sacha>QuazarGuy How?
  • (23:11) <OrionSteele>we offer to meet them and invite them to our weekly meetings online. then we try to find someone in their area that can meet them personally and talk
  • (23:11) <OrionSteele>we try to set up real conversations with everyone who sends us messages about their interest in being involved
  • (23:11) <Sacha>That is a good idea, the last may be difficult, though a phone meeting would be sufficiant
  • (23:12) <OrionSteele>yeah or online meetings are fine too
  • (23:12) <Sacha>From what I know of what Travis does, he contacts new states and talks to them
  • (23:12) <Sacha>it might be good to have a counterpart like that for just new people in general
  • (23:12) <Sacha>and I think that contacting them personally is a good idea
  • (23:12) <kusanagi>that is great
  • (23:13) <QuazarGuy>I think at the national level, it will mostly be relaying
  • (23:13) <kusanagi>first an email, giving them info about pirates in the area, then a phone call
  • (23:13) <kusanagi>QuazarGuy, yeah, it will be/is
  • (23:14) <Sacha>Yeah, i'm partial right now to it being the duty of the first officer
  • (23:15) <Sacha>Honestly, since it is my point
  • (23:15) <Sacha>I want to save it until next week and will put it in the forums in the meantime
  • (23:15) <Sacha>so i retract it
  • (23:15) <kusanagi>ok
  • (23:15) <kusanagi>neext?
  • (23:15) <stubuntu>next
  • (23:16) <kusanagi>it's Sacha's points
  • (23:16) <Sacha>I was working on the wiki today
  • (23:16) <kusanagi>you have the floor
  • (23:16) <Sacha>and i saw the new state guide and the local party organization
  • (23:16) <Sacha>I want to help flesh them out but i do not have knowledge when it comes to canvassing
  • (23:16) <Sacha>I can do the grunt working, typing etc.
  • (23:17) <kusanagi>hm
  • (23:17) <QuazarGuy>I've been meaning to go over it again
  • (23:17) <Sacha>but i need someone to point me in the right direction so I was hoping to have an experienced person volunteer to help me out with it
  • (23:17) <kusanagi>yeahm the new state guide needs to be done over.
  • (23:17) <stubuntu>i can help you with it
  • (23:17) <stubuntu>i'm pretty busy until the 6th though with the election
  • (23:18) <Sacha>Wondeful, just email me at belle10152@hotmail.com and it is okay we can wait until after elections
  • (23:18) <stubuntu>will do
  • (23:18) <Sacha>QuazarGuy if you want to help too just email me, we can likely use the discussion page combined with irc to do it
  • (23:18) <QuazarGuy>yep
  • (23:19) <Sacha>Okay so the next point comes out of a discussion with Rab about the core values
  • (23:20) <Sacha>the wording could be clarified to avoid terms like 'post-ideaological' which people may not know
  • (23:20) - teamcoltra joined
  • (23:20) - ChanServ set mode: +o teamcoltra
  • (23:20) <QuazarGuy>aren't most of them spawned out of the Pirate Wheel?
  • (23:20) <kusanagi>OH LOOK WHO IT IS
  • (23:20) <Sacha>So my question is should we just explain what we mean in the wiki or should we change the wording?
  • (23:20) <kusanagi>QuazarGuy, if i recall correctly, yes
  • (23:20) <Sacha>QuazarGuy Ehhh, we don't really stick to it
  • (23:20) <kusanagi>I think explaining it out in the wiki is a better and easier option
  • (23:21) <QuazarGuy>I would copy as much as is similar
  • (23:21) <Sacha>Post idealogical meritocracy isn't on the whee
  • (23:21) <Sacha>wheel*
  • (23:22) <QuazarGuy>is it similar to something on the wheel?
  • (23:22) <Sacha>I think that expaining it in the wiki is good as well but I think I might talk to Rab some more because I don't even know what 'post-idealogical' means
  • (23:22) <Sacha>The issue was that phrase specifically which isn't on the wheel
  • (23:22) <kusanagi>but that was written in the constitution
  • (23:22) <Sacha>Ja, so 'change the wording' = 'amendment'
  • (23:23) <Sacha>This is just an exploratory discussion
  • (23:23) <kusanagi>you're better off explaining it on the wiki for now
  • (23:23) <Sacha>I agree with that
  • (23:23) <kusanagi>if an amendment is needed, so be it
  • (23:23) <Sacha>I think if it trips up another person we should revisit it though
  • (23:23) <QuazarGuy>post-idealogical = after -isms
  • (23:23) <kusanagi>yeah
  • (23:23) <Sacha>Quazarguy That is what i thought, I will explain that out in the wiki
  • (23:24) <QuazarGuy>let's do that then
  • (23:24) <QuazarGuy>next?
  • (23:25) <kusanagi>Sacha, not to interrupt, but can you mention #uspp-press will be the channel for the press committee in the minutes
  • (23:25) <kusanagi>?
  • (23:25) <Sacha>sure
  • (23:25) <Sacha>Done
  • (23:25) <Sacha>Last thing is removing the state reports
  • (23:25) <Sacha>Having it in the meeting is pretty pointless imo and just takes up time
  • (23:26) <Sacha>We could publish it to the front page or to the wiki
  • (23:26) <kusanagi>it's a good way for us to evaluate each other
  • (23:26) <Sacha>The meeting is not the place for evaluating each other
  • (23:26) <kusanagi>and right now, the page is undergoing a massive amount of work
  • (23:26) <Sacha>exactly
  • (23:26) <Sacha>so we can just pop it in
  • (23:27) <kusanagi>yeah, but for now, can we leave it as-is?
  • (23:27) <Sacha>I would really rather not
  • (23:27) <Sacha>I want meetings to be as short as possible
  • (23:27) <QuazarGuy>I consider reports extraneous to doing business
  • (23:27) <Sacha>Same as quazarguy
  • (23:28) <kusanagi>I don't think I can just strike reports
  • (23:28) <QuazarGuy>they don't affect anything
  • (23:28) <QuazarGuy>I would rather they take place outside of meetings
  • (23:28) <Sacha>We can just vote to strike reports
  • (23:28) <Sacha>We have le sexy forums, we have le sexy email list, we will have le sexy website
  • (23:28) <kusanagi>we can
  • (23:28) <kusanagi>the site ain't sexy yet
  • (23:29) <QuazarGuy>as a temporary solution I propose states send their reports to the quartermaster to compile and distribute
  • (23:30) <Sacha>hence ~*will be*~
  • (23:30) <Sacha>Frame it as a motion Quazarguy?
  • (23:31) <QuazarGuy> I motion states send their reports to the quartermaster to compile and distribute temporarilly until another solution is found and removed from meetings
  • (23:31) <Sacha>ping mrsuared orionsteele stubuntu
  • (23:32) <Sacha>mrsquared*
  • (23:32) <OrionSteele>yes
  • (23:32) <QuazarGuy>second?
  • (23:32) <kusanagi>do you second, OrionSteele?
  • (23:32) <OrionSteele>yes
  • (23:32) <OrionSteele>that is fine i second
  • (23:33) <kusanagi>ok
  • (23:33) <kusanagi>further discussion on this, or just go to the vote
  • (23:33) <kusanagi>?
  • (23:33) <QuazarGuy>vote
  • (23:33) <kusanagi>stubuntu, MrSquared
  • (23:33) <stubuntu>aye
  • (23:33) <MrSquared>vote
  • (23:33) <kusanagi>ok
  • (23:33) <MrSquared>aye
  • (23:33) <QuazarGuy>aye
  • (23:34) <kusanagi>voting on "states send their reports to the quartermaster to compile and distribute temporarilly until another solution is found and removed from meetings"
  • (23:34) <kusanagi>now vote
  • (23:34) <QuazarGuy>aye
  • (23:34) <stubuntu>aye
  • (23:34) <MrSquared>aye
  • (23:34) <kusanagi>OrionSteele?
  • (23:36) <OrionSteele>aye
  • (23:36) <kusanagi>and calling
  • (23:36) <Sacha>4 for
  • (23:37) <kusanagi>So I guess what the states will have to do is by Monday have everything send over to Sacha and then she can place it on the agenda/minutes or something?
  • (23:37) <Sacha>I am going to make a special section for them on the wiki for now
  • (23:37) <kusanagi>that works too
  • (23:37) <Sacha>and publish seperately
  • (23:37) <Sacha>you have the next point
  • (23:38) * kusanagi nods
  • (23:38) <kusanagi>yes
  • (23:38) <kusanagi>For the agenda for the meetings
  • (23:38) <kusanagi>It's usually released about 2 days before the meeting itself
  • (23:39) <kusanagi>I would like to ask that everyone have whatever they'd like to add-on finished by Tuesday, or about 24hrs before the meeting
  • (23:39) <QuazarGuy>I didn't specify how it needed to be distributed
  • (23:40) <Sacha>QuazarGuy it will be sent to QM and I am happy with that so I will send out a Sab email and ask for it. That is what i was planning to do anyway when you said that.
  • (23:41) <Sacha>Kusanagi I disagree because I do not understand the point, as long as it is added to the end before it is spoken about there is no reason not to do it even during the meeting
  • (23:41) <kusanagi>so everyone knows what's going on
  • (23:41) <Sacha>Sometimes people do not think of what they want to say until the meeting of
  • (23:42) <Sacha>They will know when it is discussed imo
  • (23:42) <Sacha>i think that is prohibitive
  • (23:42) <QuazarGuy>I don't know why meetings and reports are still connected
  • (23:42) <Sacha>For example i've been adding and deleting things up and until right now
  • (23:42) <Sacha>QuazarGuy They will not be
  • (23:43) <kusanagi>I'm talking about agenda and aob items
  • (23:43) <Sacha>kusanagi So am I
  • (23:43) - Rab joined
  • (23:43) <kusanagi>i was explaining to jeff.
  • (23:43) <QuazarGuy>I must
  • (23:43) <Sacha>Okay
  • (23:43) * Rab enters, cape flying
  • (23:43) <Sacha>Rab xD hi c:
  • (23:44) <QuazarGuy>must've missed it
  • (23:44) <kusanagi>Rab, still in meeting
  • (23:44) <Sacha>QuazarGuy I clarified to say that I will make a new section on the wiki to put them in, it will be on the front page under that PNC thing
  • (23:44) <Rab>hi!
  • (23:44) * Rab pulls up chair, adjusts ears wider. gets silent
  • (23:44) <Sacha>xD
*(23:46) <Sacha>So kusanagi's point
  • (23:46) <Sacha>anymore discussion on it or a motion?
  • (23:47) <kusanagi>it was just a request
  • (23:47) <kusanagi>nothing formal
  • (23:47) <Sacha>Okay, I will try to do so in the future but I cannot guarantee
  • (23:48) <kusanagi>That's fine
  • (23:48) <kusanagi>Okay, that seems to be like everything
  • (23:48) <kusanagi>oh wait, no
  • (23:48) <kusanagi>Sacha, one more?
  • (23:48) <Sacha>Yup, it was on there before but I deleted it for some reason
  • (23:48) <kusanagi>oh
  • (23:48) <kusanagi>ok
  • (23:48) <Sacha>I already sent this in an email but I wanted to say it here
  • (23:48) <kusanagi>so that's everything?
  • (23:49) <Sacha>Nope, I re-added it to discuss
  • (23:49) <kusanagi>oh ok
  • (23:49) <Sacha>well just to lecture really
  • (23:49) <Sacha>In the PNC a few weeks ago there was a lot of discussion about asynchronous meetings
  • (23:49) <Sacha>I know you are in favor of it Rab
  • (23:49) <Sacha>People are using the forums, very few, but they do exist
  • (23:49) <Sacha>They looked awesome and Caleb worked hard on them
  • (23:50) <Sacha>I do not care if you hate forums, please get over it
  • (23:50) <Sacha>And use them, the only way to make them popular and effective is to use them
  • (23:50) <Sacha>Bookmark them, check them daily or once a week
  • (23:50) <Sacha>the new theads and posts light up read
  • (23:50) <Sacha>Just do it.
  • (23:50) <Sacha>That's all.
