rules/guidelines for the new forum

Postby brynn » Fri Feb 15, 2019 4:35 am

Hi Friends,
It's time to write the rules and guidelines for the new forum. If anyone here is interested, please contact me. You can reply below, or PM me or email me, or however you want to do it.

No particular skills or knowledge is required for this. Just some experience in forums, and desire to help the new forum get "off the ground" and to help it become the best it can be.

I don't forsee this taking a lot of time. But it really depends on how complex and detailed this group wants the rules and guidelines to be. Personally, I would prefer as simple as possible. But we'll make a concensus about it. (It's not like I'm the boss, I'm just making sure it gets done, and has all the needed info.) Anyway, the time is a bit up in the air, until the group can meet and we get an idea what everyone wants.

I'm not sure the modality we'll use. Possibly something like Framapad, or possibly old school and just exchange ODT or DOC files. Or apparently there's some kind of feature in GitLab. I've been referred to it, but haven't read up on it yet. I'll be doing that shortly. In any case, whatever group is assembled to do this task will decide how they want to do it.

Thanks.

If anyone cares, we have a couple of proposals for the rules and guidelines.

They're essentially the same, we just need to agree on a format.

Comments and suggestions are very welcome!

The first draft is ready for this. Just in case anyone thinks they might ever use the new forum, and you want to have a say about this document, you're more than welcome to make comments and suggestions.

After some comments on the mailing list, I've made several significant edits. Here's the new version, in case anyone has any comments or suggestions:
