Conflict updates


  • Ryan (mediator between rayc): rayc has not contacted Ryan.


  • Elliot does not want to share space with him, non-engagement with st.nic, would like the SSP to be enforced w/ the language he's used and people he's hurt in the space
  • juul: you are willing to do mediation as long as you don't have to meet with him in person?
  • elliot: yes, and with the temporary band that that mediation is done offsite,
  • matt: both people off-site?
  • elliot: it's my understandin that he's banned pending mediation
  • matt: it's not ambiguous, it's exactly what's happening, they're banned during mediation
  • rachel: here here


  • Rachel: Doc has not contacted and did not show up last time, but I was 15m late, though I notified people. I think it's worth calling, but the longer the more time there is to process and grow before going through with mediation. I will call again
  • elliot.....
  • matt: i think this is heresay and we should discuss it at the appropriate time
  • rachel: agreed
  • juul: okay

Front Door Station Proposal

  • - rachel -

    • this is being rerouted to a preliminary conversation between Welcoming Committee and La Commune. it has been removed from the pad as it was not consensed to be there by Welcoming WG. - jenny
    • okay, everyone in welcoming seemed all behind do-acratically doing it, Niki at first, but then she alerted me to la commune's concerns
    • i for one am totally behind it, that's not the point. we should operate by full consensus whenever possible, and bring things to delegates for consensus once it's fully vetted.
    • to work with la commune before posting it to the meeting?
    • yeah! i just sent an email with your proposal to welcoming and la commune folks <3
    • yeah, i wanted to send it to delegates for that reason, but you're totes right, this is smooter and specifically respectful
    • btw i love that you made a fucking sketchup model ;)
    • thanks :)
