(D10) Agreement for staff and team members
Xy proposed making an agreement that people who work for GFL cannot pull their work once they leave or something similar. We will discuss how we would like to go about this and perhaps propose a temporary solution.
(D15) Member Applications - Nick
Member applications have been brought up a few times. Most recently in relation to fully automating the application process. We discuss how we want to move forward with this.
(D15) Joint projects
A lot of joint projects have appeared lately. We will discuss how GFL wants to go about this and what types of partnerships that work in our favor.
(D10) Mentions for events - Nick
Events are seeing very few participants in their events. They would like to use @everyone and @here again.
(D10) Hall of Fame
Hall of Fame is a concept that was introduced a few years back for members who have extensively contributed to GFL. The badge got broken and the post was subsequently unpinned. We’ll discuss whether to reboot the concept.
(D10) Communication between staff, managers, and admins
It is often hard to get in touch with managers, admins, and the like. Nick would like to see some work done in order to ease this. An idea could be to require everyone to be present in the main Discord and make mentionable roles for all teams. Perhaps an Admin Discord.
(D10) Payments - Nick
Council cannot make sound decisions if they’re not aware of how the funds are being spent and have somewhat power over this. We’ll discuss how to implement this.
(D10) Task management
We will often have tasks to complete in-between meetings. This item is sponsored by Trello.
(D15) Word Policy - Adam/Nick
Recently, some servers have decided to ban words beyond the N-word. This has sparked some controversy. We will discuss how we believe GFL should go about this and begin working on a global policy.
(D10) Discord partnership - Ben
Discord is opening up their partnership application, Ben has a few or more concerns regarding it. We will discuss if it is worth aiming for it, how we can prepare to apply for partnership, comply with their Code of Conduct, meet their requirements and address the concerns.
(D10) What is staff? - Nick
We often have a hard time defining what staff is in GFL. It seems we all share the same idea, but there are a lot of different reasonings behind the definitions. Let’s define exactly what staff is or perhaps create better lingo.
