Winter Lodge

  • smcihel17: I just wanted to point out that this category exists, it’s a place exclusive to Trust Level 3+, for off-topic, less-moderated discussion between the longstanding-community. I made the first post there recently, wanted to encourage others to post more
  • wolftune: is there any sense to open up the discussion to lower trust levels?
  • Salt: The point of the forums is not to be a general hang-out space, so I think there’s good reason to restrict the hang-out portion to TL3

Coworking time

  • wolftune: we’ve had the most activity when we’ve had coworking time
  • wolftune: Not sure if I have any particular proposals (more check-ins, announcing plans?), but I think it’s a big part of making progress
  • msiep: +1, the most helpful part is committing to something, having someone other than me know whether I actually did it. Don’t need to discuss much, just check in that I’m doing it
  • wolftune: Charles and I have been checking in more, he talked about getting together in person with coworking partners, but just doing their own stuff separately in the same room
  • msiep: Just like we’re having this regular meeting, we could have a weekly working time..
  • smichel17: I’d be up for that.
  • Salt: I think there’s a discourse thread about this?
  • Salt: Did we ever get this installed?
  • Wolftune: Yes, but we don’t know what to do with it yet
  • Tentative proposal: Monday/Wednesday from 1:00-2:00 PST
  • smichel17: Everyone should try to check in and stay to work — hang around even if you’re not doing snowdrift stuff (eg, because freelance work takes priority).
