    Present for this week's guardian session were Adams, Agatha, Eliza, Eos, Genesis, Riddle, Steve, and Yakuzza.

    Eos Amaterasu: snowglobes are the best I've come up with so far
    Adams Rubble: Hello Eliza :)
    genesis Zhangsun: Hi Eliza!
    Agatha Macbeth: Hiya Liz :))
    Eliza Madrigal: Hi Everyone!!
    Eliza Madrigal: Wow, Gen. Nice to see you :)
    Eos Amaterasu: Hi Eliza (triumphal entrance!)
    Agatha Macbeth: Love the way you skipped in there :)
    Eliza Madrigal: Hi Adams, Agatha, Eos
    Eliza Madrigal: haha, yes its a fun AO
    Agatha Macbeth: And hello Riddle
    Eliza Madrigal: I was long overdue for choosing one
    Eos Amaterasu: pushing the presence of appearance :-)
    Eliza Madrigal: Hi Riddle
    genesis Zhangsun: Hi Riddle
    Adams Rubble: Hello Riddle
    Eliza Madrigal: >whew< finally able to sit
    Agatha Macbeth: It's very *you* Liz
    Riddle Sideways: Hi All
    Eos Amaterasu: HI Riddle (so topical for next Art as Being...)
    Eliza Madrigal: Oh... I like that Eos "pushing the presence of appearance"
    Agatha Macbeth: Indeed
    Eos Amaterasu: flirting with the presence of appearance
    Eliza Madrigal: :)))
    Agatha Macbeth: Does appearance flirt back tho?
    Eliza Madrigal: Indeed it seems to Ag!
    Agatha Macbeth: Yay
    Eliza Madrigal: haha
    Eos Amaterasu: being flirting
    Agatha Macbeth: And why not?
    Agatha Macbeth: Hee

    Eliza Madrigal: I have a guardian topic this morning, regarding candidates ... if there are no pressing issues
    Agatha Macbeth: Feel free Liz
    Eos Amaterasu: /me listens
    Eliza Madrigal: I wondered if we might talk a little about how we nominate... just give thoughts.
    Riddle Sideways: listens
    Agatha Macbeth: /me nods
    Eliza Madrigal: There are some who come only once in a while who may come more often if invited, and some who come but without necessarily jumping in deeply...
    Eliza Madrigal: so I just wondered if others had 'feelings' to share
    Eliza Madrigal: about the process itself
    Adams Rubble: I think the WG is doing just fine :)
    Agatha Macbeth: It's a complex subject IMHO
    Eliza Madrigal: Thanks Adams :)
    Eliza Madrigal: and how so Agatha?
    Agatha Macbeth: I think it depends on what people are coming here *for*
    Eos Amaterasu: is this about inviting to join in more to sessions, or inviting to be guardians?
    Riddle Sideways: ouch, Hi Yak
    Eos Amaterasu: hi yakk
    Yakuzza Lethecus: hey everyone
    Eliza Madrigal: inviting to become guardians, Eos
    Eliza Madrigal: Hi Ya :)
    Agatha Macbeth: wb Yaku
    Adams Rubble: Hello again Yak
    Eliza Madrigal: Agatha, that's a good point
    Agatha Macbeth: /me nods

    Agatha Macbeth: It would be interesting to know what it is that attracts people to PaB in the first place

    Adams Rubble: My only concern about guardians is that I wish there was some kind of record of people being dropped from the rolls

    Eliza Madrigal: I've not really invited someone to join in more sessions... it has always been watching to see how/why they participate and then inviting to be a guardian. Wonder if sometimes there is an inbetween
    Eliza Madrigal: Ah, Adams there could be. We're about to undertake the second 'sweeping'
    Eliza Madrigal: which is basically just emailing and asking people if they are still interested in being part of PaB, etc
    Agatha Macbeth:In my case, it was purely by chance, but others come by word of mouth, and others by looking for certain values in Search
    Adams Rubble: It could be noted in the Chroncles
    Eliza Madrigal: and if they are, they stay :)

    Eos Amaterasu: wondering re guardian role including willingness to sometimes be there regularly - some people may be into PaB deeply, but not in that regular-show-up way

    Eliza Madrigal: true Eos
    Agatha Macbeth: In some cases, people may not be able to make many sessions due to RL commitments

    Eliza Madrigal: There is a kind of 'in between' place now too, due to time sessions which have their own group in a way...
    Adams Rubble: I would think the question of why people come to PaB might be very relevant to the kinds of discusions that take place in PaB
    Eliza Madrigal: so some want to post reports but aren't necessarily guardians yet
    Agatha Macbeth: Oh, I can come to the time session this week btw :)
    Eliza Madrigal: yay Ag :)))

    Eos Amaterasu: ah, so we need finer-grained permissioning....

    Eliza Madrigal: maybe, its a question anyway
    Eos Amaterasu: re being able to write to the wiki
    Agatha Macbeth: Do we still have certain GoC slots which are not filled?
    Eos Amaterasu: /me will add that as a techy like-to-have for the new, improved wiki structure
    Eliza Madrigal: I think we may have one or at most two
    Eliza Madrigal: Ah, good idea Eos.... that's pretty simple!

    Adams Rubble: we need some scribing guardians..maybe look for some English majors (hehe)
    Eliza Madrigal: hahah, yes indeed
    Eos Amaterasu: history majors
    Eliza Madrigal: mosaic creators
    Eliza Madrigal: snapshot takers
    Agatha Macbeth: I am just on this month's as it happens!
    Eos Amaterasu: fiction writers
    Eliza Madrigal: I'm on last month's Ag... tsk tsk, Eliza
    Eliza Madrigal: It may be the first time I've fallen 'behind'
    Agatha Macbeth: /me wags a finger
    Eliza Madrigal: /me hangs head
    Eliza Madrigal: :)
    Agatha Macbeth: Aww :)
    Eos Amaterasu: /me is aghast!
    Eliza Madrigal: hahahah
    Agatha Macbeth: Hello a ghast
    Eos Amaterasu: (what a strange word!)
    Adams Rubble: /me looks around and pretends not to be behind
    Agatha Macbeth: /me ponders the etymology

    Agatha Macbeth: Yes, looking at the Wiki i notice we still have some GoC slots not filled. Perhaps some 'new blood' could rectify this, so to speak?
    Eos Amaterasu: /me is contemplating guardians as carnivores
    Eliza Madrigal: yes, actually new guardians have been filling in left and right
    Agatha Macbeth: :)
    Eliza Madrigal: it may take a while to see if people find a particular spot they're cozy in :)
    Agatha Macbeth: That is always an issue too Liz

    Eos Amaterasu: it seems "dynamically" assigning new guardians every week is part of what is happening
    Agatha Macbeth: The Tuesday 1300 slot is particularly awkward because it clashes with the Dream Workshop
    Eliza Madrigal: yes, which is interesting. Sometimes I wonder if having assigned spots doesn't freeze things at times as people go to sessions they are 'used to'
    Eliza Madrigal: I mean, of course we need to do that
    Eliza Madrigal: but good to mix things up too
    Eliza Madrigal: :)
    Eos Amaterasu: you mentioned there are groups attached to certain times
    Agatha Macbeth: It's that 'round world' thing again!
    Eliza Madrigal: yes Tuesday is an issue
    Eliza Madrigal: haha, yes Agatha
    Adams Rubble: I think that it is a good thing if people are going to certain sessions
    Eos Amaterasu: Tuesday?
    Agatha Macbeth: Tuesday at 1300 Eos
    Agatha Macbeth: My old slot
    Eos Amaterasu: needs a guardian?
    Eliza Madrigal: /me nods... though it still seems an active session, with dream workshop at kira taking place simultaneously
    Eliza Madrigal: *even with
    Eos Amaterasu: oh
    Eos Amaterasu twirls totem...
    Eliza Madrigal: hahahha
    Agatha Macbeth: The DW was the whole reason I relinquished it...
    Eos Amaterasu: and then there is the Dream Circle which simply uses an available timeslot
    genesis Zhangsun: sorry but I have to leave
    Adams Rubble: bye Gen :)
    Riddle Sideways: bye Gen
    genesis Zhangsun: see you all later
    genesis Zhangsun: bye!
    Eliza Madrigal: yes, dream workshop is different. maxine's time is very limited
    Eos Amaterasu: bye Gen, nice to see you!
    Eliza Madrigal: Bye Gen, good to see you
    genesis Zhangsun: nice to see all of you!
    Agatha Macbeth: And now we are getting near September, things will begin to get busier at Kira too of course
    Agatha Macbeth: Bye Gen, take care
    Eliza Madrigal: /me nods
    Yakuzza Lethecus: bye gen
    genesis Zhangsun: bye Yaku

    Riddle Sideways: However, now that many of us can be in 2+ places at once...
    Eos Amaterasu: I think the wiki can be made a bit more functional regarding assigning rights to people, to enable some of what we seem to be talking about
    Eliza Madrigal: I do think things are going swimmingly overall...
    Eos Amaterasu: so at least the wiki part of the experience can be made more flexible
    Agatha Macbeth nods. The Wiki is still evolving after the changeover of course
    Eliza Madrigal: yes
    Eos Amaterasu: for example,non-guardians adding time reports
    Eliza Madrigal: true. amazing what a difference little changes can make to the day-to-day experience
    Eliza Madrigal: re clarity
    Agatha Macbeth: Indeed

    Agatha moves over a few cushions to fill the gap between us, then begins floating ...

    Eliza Madrigal: ha, I was just about to do that Agatha!
    Agatha Macbeth: Great minds!
    Agatha Macbeth: Bloody AOs
    Eliza Madrigal: :)

    Eliza Madrigal: Well, that was one question... with the scribes coming up I do wonder if we shouldn't talk about that again perhaps
    Agatha Macbeth: They always seem to do what you *don't* want!
    Agatha Macbeth: What's that Liz, sorry?
    Eliza Madrigal: :)
    Eliza Madrigal: I wonder if there might not be "other ways" to approach scribing
    Agatha Macbeth: Mm
    Agatha Macbeth: It does seem to be a bit of a problem area right now
    Eliza Madrigal: a few of those little changes that might open the process up
    Agatha Macbeth: I think only Adams' and mine are posted from last month?
    Agatha Macbeth: This is certainly something which needs to be addressed, yes
    Adams Rubble: I did not finish my July scribey thingy
    Riddle Sideways: Hi Bruce
    Adams Rubble: hello again Bruce
    Riddle Sideways: and Blub
    Eliza Madrigal: Yes, what concerns me is that sometimes I read in a log where people are saying they don't read them much, even when we're sending notices, etc ... so I'd like to know how to have them be a more natural part of what is 'before our eyes'
    Agatha Macbeth: Oh, it was cal, sorry
    Eliza Madrigal: Hi Bruce :)
    Bruce Mowbray: Hi, folks. Didn't want to leave that pavilion discussion just yet...
    Agatha Macbeth: Hello again Bruce
    Yakuzza Lethecus: hey bruce
    Eos Amaterasu: (afk)
    Riddle Sideways: Eliza, I use a RSS reader and that shows all the newest blogs, shats, scribes, etc.
    Agatha Macbeth: Shats? ;-)
    Eliza Madrigal: an extra application Riddle?
    Riddle Sideways: yes
    Bruce Mowbray: chats.
    Agatha Macbeth: William Shatner? [grin]
    Bruce Mowbray: /me dies from laughing....
    Yakuzza Lethecus: :)
    Eliza Madrigal: /me revives Bruce
    Agatha Macbeth: Calm down Bruce
    Eliza Madrigal: get ahold of yourself man
    Bruce Mowbray: thanks, Eliza.
    Eliza Madrigal: :)
    Agatha Macbeth: Beam him up scotty

    Eliza Madrigal: Is the reader different from the 'recent changes' tab Riddle?
    Bruce Mowbray: so -- Is the problem that folks have so much else to do that they don't get round to reading the logs. . .
    Agatha Macbeth: Well, that may be part of it Bruce, yes
    Eliza Madrigal: Well, that's one thing the scribes hope to address
    Agatha Macbeth: That was the problem where Mick was concerned i think
    Riddle Sideways: I use reader because I watch many other feeds too
    Eliza Madrigal: as a way for those who have less time (all the time or some times) to get a gist of the strings
    Eliza Madrigal: Oh, I see Riddle

    Riddle Sideways: eos, the wiki front page could have a scrolling most recent title links box
    Agatha Macbeth: Does the Wiki have an RSS thingy?
    Riddle Sideways: rather then tab
    Eliza Madrigal: I thought that it did for a while, but that is part of what made it slow to load
    Eos Amaterasu: Riddle, Fael put that up once, but then took it down...
    Agatha Macbeth: Ah, right
    Riddle Sideways wonders why Fael took it away?
    Eliza Madrigal: the loading issue, and also that the wiki seemed to 'go down' a few times
    Eliza Madrigal: it seems to have helped a lot

    Eos Amaterasu: I think having links to latest scribe posts appear on top of list of links to chat logs... would help

    Eos Amaterasu: Yeah, techy bugs
    Adams Rubble: It had to reload everytime one returned to the main page
    Eos Amaterasu: (to Riddle)
    Eliza Madrigal: Hey Steve!
    Bruce Mowbray: Hi, steve.
    Riddle Sideways: Hi Stev
    Agatha Macbeth: Hello Steve
    Yakuzza Lethecus: hey steve
    Bruce Mowbray: soeey, folks, but I have to go now.
    Agatha Macbeth: Bye Bruce
    Yakuzza Lethecus: take care bruce
    Eliza Madrigal: Bye Bruce

    Eliza Madrigal: :)
    Eliza Madrigal: /me tips the room
    Agatha Macbeth: Everyone falls over
    Eliza Madrigal: hahah....
    stevenaia Michinaga: I am having appearance issues as I cannot see me except as a cloud
    Eliza Madrigal: this sort of looks like a ship
    Agatha Macbeth: :-)
    Agatha Macbeth: What iceberg?
    Eliza Madrigal: Ah, Steve... you do look um... interesting today

    Agatha Macbeth: Euros can only realistically get to saturdy sessions
    Eliza Madrigal: it would be fun to have another pab party too

    Eliza Madrigal: /me looks for an occasion
    Agatha Macbeth: Is anybody's birthday near? :)

    Agatha Macbeth: Ooh yes, I need to do that...
    Eliza Madrigal: Bleu will make an announcement soon
    Yakuzza Lethecus: is there a saying in america that whishing a good bday in the states brings unluck ?
    Agatha Macbeth: Great
    Eliza Madrigal: that might be a good idea ...
    Yakuzza Lethecus: because in germany we won´t greet in advance
    Eliza Madrigal: to follow up the next art as being session with dancing
    Yakuzza Lethecus: usually :)
    Agatha Macbeth: Maybe we schedule something to coincide with that?
    Agatha Macbeth: Yay
    Eliza Madrigal: Hm, Ya... I don't think so
    Eliza Madrigal: but nice bit of cultural trivia :))
    Agatha Macbeth: Ah, culture eh?
    Eliza Madrigal: well, difference between germany and america

    Eliza Madrigal: nope :)
    Agatha Macbeth: Oh
    Riddle Sideways: or just not telling
    Agatha Macbeth: Ok
    Eliza Madrigal: but it is the same reasoning behind not wishing birthday early I think
