To More Serious business:

Moving people off moderation

  • The Boards impression was that Heroes will automatically do this

after the time has elapsed

  • This doesn't seem to have been happening

Public Board meetings

  • Start meetings in public channel and move to private to discuss

private issues..

  • Trial for 2 months
  • If members wish to discuss a topic or ask questions add it to the

agenda atleast by the Thurs before the meeting to help with planning.

  • Possibly use ticketing system to create agenda.
  • If we do this trial it in private for a few meetings to get it

right first.

  • Due to urgency in some cases we may need to prioritize private

topics over public.

FSF Topic
