During the January 30th general meeting, [[User:Bleeblahblue|Vicky]] started a conversation on using hand signals during meetings as a way to rank speaker order and mark shifts between the topic at hand (*sad trombone*) and the conversation's meta-process. This page is for you, yes you, to refine and add to before submitting a formalesque proposal to the rest of Sudo Room!

=='''Sign-ups'''==
<blockquote>'''TWO IMPORTANT THINGS:
These here are people working on the proposal (in small ways and in big ways alike (in other words, sign up so we know who we are!!!))!
#'''Make any revisions/proposals you'd like.
#'''SIGN UP for future announcements in the "Keep me informed!" section!'''</blockquote>
=='''Keep me informed!'''==
These here are people working on or generally interested the proposal. If the feeling's right, Vicky will organize a meet-up or email chain to help move the proposal forward.

=='''Concepts'''==
*Yeah, man, like, order and not speaking over each other and shit. I am intrigued by the Occupy "feelings" signals, but am a bit wary that doing something like this in Sudo Room will make meetings painfully long. Do other people know of other concepts for bringing order to decision-making segments of group meetings/councils like ours?

In the most effective General Assemblies that I've participated in, the most commonly used hand signals were:
*Twinkle fingers - For expressing support / agreement. At sudo room, we have already established a practice of snapping to express agreement, which is my personal preference :
*Wrap it Up - "Wagon wheel" with index fingers pointing toward each other, to indicate that the current speaker is taking too much time, reiterating the same point, and should generally try to wrap it up.
*Direct response - "gun fingers" to indicate a quick clarification of the current point or a question to further clarification. Not to be used for opinion- or emotion-laden responses / points of view.
*Point-of-process - As per the triangle of thumbs and index fingers shown in the top-right corner of the image, and aptly described by Vicky above.

=='''What next?'''==
*Vicky will round you up, and we will agree upon a set of hand signals.
*We will spread the hand signals idea around as a Sudo Room social meme, subliminally convincing everyone of how great hand signals are for our organizational health.
*We will make sketches of our agreed-upon hand signals, and chose a Wednesday meeting to propose them to.
