Like.  But I think the problem, for now and for the foreseeable future, is that there is so much random dumping from people “affiliated” with sudo that the shelves couldn’t even keep up with it.  We could try and build a larger metal shelf that has lots of space in between levels to accommodate some stuff and, ya, I could see that alleviating some floor space.  Do we have some extra metal shelves we could build?  the current wood one sitting in that area doesn’t really work so well for that.

What about the probation shelving idea? We did it before, and it would make the space appear more organized...things that are slated to be disposed of go on shelves with clearly labeled disposal dates. Wanted or mistaken items can be removed, people can come scavenge, and things are off of the floor until they can be gotten rid of.
