maia_bob: OTW Logo with text "OTW Board 2013 (wtfpolarbear)" (OTW Board WTF)
[personal profile] maia_bob
317 emails this week of which 171 are labeled OTW - !General and 52 are labeled OTW – Board. My calendar says ~14 hour week. If this happens to level off to ~150 emails a week and 10-15 hours that might, I think, be sustainable.

The Meta thing now looks more like this:
  1. Decide we're going to do it AKA talk for ages then come to a decision (we did this)
  2. Discuss it a lot internally (we have been doing this)
  3. Publish the proposed revised Terms of Service (ToS) for people to comment on (public post up for comment)
  4. Discuss people's comments and feedback and revise again (after 3.)
  5. Depending on people's comments, like, if people all say 'hey, it should be more like this' and everyone seems to agree and we think it looks good too then we might be able to go straight to 6. or we might need to do 2-4 again.
  6. Publish the Terms of Service (ToS), make changes to the Abuse and Support policies so they match the Terms of Service.
  7. Make a Design for Meta on the AO3 and plan when to make code changes. This will probably take a while, we need to have 1-6 first PLUS we have limited coder resources AND we prioritise improving and fixing performance over new features - even very important ones. *loves on AD&T*

That thing I can't talk about that I didn't talk about last week or the week before, or the week before that, that got approved and communicated internally is still in the works. One day!

I got a beta invite to Loomio which is a collaborative decision making tool. I like their explanation video - its cute, clear, and I like how it uses wireframes to communicate. I'm hoping to trial it with the Board.

Daylight savings kicked in for some people but not for me.

Open Board and Closed Board was at 4am - this is the one I don't even try to make so I read the transcript the next day. It sounds like some issues came to a head and now we're working through what that means and how we're going to make it work out. *hugs all round for ppl* This is one of those moments where there is so much history, so many feelings, and so many different opinions about what to do next that it feels like we should all lock ourselves in a room together and not be allowed out until we've come to some sort of clarity. I would be that awful person who cut the Gordian Knot with a sword, I would chew it apart.

And now I'm getting uncomfortably close to the line of excessive disclosure I'll stop.

As always, please comment, ask questions, express opinions or do what you feel comfortable with.

I will freely admit I typed "oh boy, popcorn time" into another channel. Though I felt really really really uncomfortable watching it, too.

General question: if someone in the peanut gallery has a question of they who have the floor during an open meeting, what's procedure? Raise your hand and wait for the Chair to address you?

You are doing such a good job of not talking about the thing you can't talk about that even I don't know what you're talking about. :D
