Sorry, but I have absolutely no time on weekends in the moment and only rarely during the week.

So I´m not going to make it this time.

No, you should lead the meeting since I'm going to vote you Guildmaster anyway- ;) :P

Which brings up my only thing I'd like to discuss at the meeting: eligibility for voting. If we have enough members present (i.e., nearly all) I'd like to discuss how to better determine current members, rather than assigning someone the arduous task of contacting everyone and asking them if they'd still like to be a messenger, if they'd like to vote, etc.

This month we have had one of the best GoMe meetings imo!

Here is what we discussed:

We started with the elections. After some discussions we decided that it's time to have elections for new Guild Masters, and we know that we'll have more than the current GMs running for the elections. (YAY)

We have also discussed about having 3 or 2 Guild Masters. 3 seemed a god number, being odd, but at last we decided for 2 because there isn't that much work to do and because all the power goes to the Guild and not to the Guild Masters as we agreed in the past meetings.

Doobes will be the official Votes Collector. Following our tradition we took someone out of the Guild of Messengers for counting votes.

But before we can start with the elections we have to contact our remaining Affiliates and clear a bit our situation with them. Time has passed since the hlast real interaction between us and them and now it almost seems that "Affiliates" means nothing. So I'll contact them and try to understand if they want to work closely with us or just keep the situation as it is, which would mean taking them out of our list of Affiliates because there can't be Affiliation if there is no interaction at all between the groups.

We discussed about the magazine. Theremin pointed out his intentions for the Magazine, following his thoughts already expressed here on the forum. We've got some ideas for issue #2 (Myst&RealLife Theme):

_Interviews with couples in Uru and RL, or families
_Try to interview the Mysteriacs
_GoW updates
_laughingpineapple story
_maybe an "Atrus says" column for really short pieces...like two lines
_Find more "Did you Know"s. Was suggested looking in the MystReader and in From Myst to Riven. I will also contact Cyan to see if they can give us some scoops XD
_A quote from Cyan. Just to show they're not asleep XD
_Possible interview with Cyan employees

For Cyan's contacts I'm going to send messages everywhere I know someone from Cyan could hear. :D

Chat log is here

guild... chat?

 

Please let that be an irc channel... If it isn't, the question must be asked - what is it, and why /isn't/ it an IRC channel >.>

 

*has a sinking feeling*

 

EDIT: oh god, I just found it.. O-o

*shudders*

I probably won't be going to the meeting if its decided to do it there =P

*shudders again*

 

EDIT2: unless, of course, it is an irc channel is horrific.... terrifiying, nightmarish clothing. >.> If it is, point me to the channel and server, etc, and i'll go in an actual irc client. =P

then I suggest we move it ot the IRC channel. I am sure Leonardo mentioned once we had one.

for everyone who doesn't have an IRC client go to

http://www.rel.to/irc

click on "#GoMe"

the rest is easy

for the people who have an irc client it is #GoMe on chat.mystlore.com


Edit: looked it up

It's a flash chat, and it is not an IRC chat because Sophia set it that way. I can add IRC integration, I'm just reluctant to disable FlashChat because that is actually the only paid software that was used on this site.

we're paying for a chat that regularly throws people out for no reason at all?

This won't work for me at certain times of the day. (it's a long story, there's nothing I can do about it.) Have we nailed down a time yet?

LOL. no Luna. It's a one time fee, Sophia actually paid for it for her mystonline.info website and then used it here too

Theremin, I don't know...because if we do at 10 we will miss Polgara and LThyme, and Polgara seems to have some things to tell about the Magazine

So the time for the meeting has been settled on as 12:00? (How about 11:00?)

I think that 11 can work. Because usually our Meetings last more than one hour, so it would allow you to be on at the beginning and Polgara and LThyme at the end

11 am is okay. Maybe I´ll be online earlier, I´ll see.

I have to install the IRC client tomorrow and I hope it will work fine.
