Pirate Insurrection

  • How do we want to advertise that we exist? Sacha Oct 25 2012
    • We could simply send out an email with a link to the Pirate Underground wiki page. --Erixoltan (talk) 09:55, 8 November 2012 (EST)
  • What do we want to focus on? How big do we want to make this? Sacha Oct 25 2012
    • We should start with a narrow focus and widen it later. Priorities include asynchronous meetings, policy formation and attracting more people to this effort. --Erixoltan (talk)
  • What is our strategy for growth? --Erixoltan (talk) 09:43, 8 November 2012 (EST)

Asynchronous Meetings

  • Here is what I think that we can do. We can use the discussion page just make sure that you sign your talks and we can all use one bullet point. So for example if I was first I would use one '*' next person does '**' to reply and then I reply with '*' to them. We can make up different topics by using '== ==' etc. So '='Meetings'=' '==' discussion '==' and '==' members '==' like that. Sacha Oct 25 2012
    • Sacha I think that's a good idea. --Erixoltan (talk) 09:55, 8 November 2012 (EST)
  • How do we vote asynchronously using a wiki? We could go in and post votes right here. I will do that below in the policy section. Please add a vote there, so we can see if it works. --Erixoltan (talk)
  • Danger of cheating. We really need software for asynchronous meetings. If we post votes here, then someone could go in and change them. Someone could also go in and tamper with the discussion. In the meantime, we have to be on the honor system. --Erixoltan (talk)


This section will contain discussion of policy in general and specific policy initiatives.

Asynchronous Policy Formation

  • Normally you have a proposal and vote on it. If it passes, you adopt the policy. In an asynchronous meeting, the vote could be against today but in favor tomorrow, as more people join and vote. We should therefore keep a running tally, and prepare to have proposals possibly float in and out of favor over time. --Erixoltan (talk)
    • Therefore I propose that as a temporary measure, we put votes directly in the wiki discussion page, and are on the honor system not to edit them. Until we have better software. All in favor place an "aye" vote below, preceded by "***", and sign it. --Erixoltan (talk)
