    Eliza began this meeting of the WG by welcoming the new members.  We then moved on to Wiki issues and old dead-end scribe links which took readers to nowhere in particular.  Cal said he would look into it.  
      Next came the thorny subject of underage attendees, which had recently been raging in PaB following my email to the group on the subject.  Plenty was said but, as Aphrodite observed, very little actually seemed to be decided on.  This seems one of those rather nebulous topics which is difficult to get hold of and actually do anything about.  It was, however, agreed that no under-18s should knowingly be allowed in Bieup and that a DADT (Don't Ask, Don't Tell) policy be employed.  Other than that, paying due dilligence to the LL Terms of Service is about all we can do. Wol said she would seek further clarification on the legal aspects apropos 15-17 year olds. It was decided at the very least their words could not be recorded in the log.
      Bruce informed us that he, Cal and Lisa were creating a group named Original Face, which was intended to be a contemplatory group, rather like an ongoing retreat.  A kind of offshoot of Playasbeing in effect (but hopefully with no underage attendees! :] ). 'It’s a for people to share and learn from each other and their practices.' It will be interesting to see how this progresses. Cal said he would update WG permissions in the Wiki for new members.
      The WG decided that in future meetings would start earlier to better accomodate European and African members.  Noon SLT on alternate Wednesdays was the time thought most appropriate. 
      It was also decided to propose Susan Sorensen as a new guardian.
      Eliza said she would bring up the subject of donations again at the next Guardian Meeting.
      So here we are, I am now a member of the Working Group.  Quite how this came about I am still not quite sure, as my original intention was only to lend Adams a hand with the chronicles.  Ah well, fait accompli n'est ce pas?

    Attending:
     
    Eos Amaterasu, Eliza Madrigal, Aphrodite Macbain, Agatha Macbeth, Bruce Mowbray, Sunshine Vayandar, Calvino Rabeni.
     
    Sun started off by discussing her music sessions, saying she had no specific plans for them, but could shift the times about if need be. 
     
    Sun (sunshine.vayandar): it's basically just about being creative
    Eliza Madrigal: okay... maybe we can sort of keep an eye on this item, to see if over time an afternoon session might be good to try too
     
    Bruce wondered if the sessions had been publicised well enough, to which Sun replied she was still geting things off the ground at the moment, so at the moment it was basically about testing things to see what worked. Bruce then began floating around in a yellow bubble.
    We talked about the possibilities of making more use of group notices and IM for communication in the group.
      I raised the question as to Druth's calendar going on the notice board as well as in the wiki.  Eliza said it would be best for all concerned if we did that the same person mainained both, and we decided it would be best to come back to this subject in a few weeks.  
     
    Eliza Madrigal: because I'm thinking to talk to Storm and Piet, about the extent of PaB/Kira overlap in promotion, etc. For now, Druth is doing well having the wiki calendar
    Sun (sunshine.vayandar): yes and I help her a bit with info about events etc
     
    Donations were discussed (again). Aphrodite said she would be sending out reminders. Eliza mentioned again the possibility of a one-day retreat for the WG members.
     
    Eliza Madrigal: With regard to the retreat, I think it is a good idea... many companies do such... have a day for bonding :) relaxation, brainstorming creatively with no intensity
     
    The dates of May 28/29 were discussed, and Sunday May 29 was decided upon.
     
    Aphrodite Macbain: It would have to be at 9:30AM SLT to accommodate the Guardian meeting
    Eos Amaterasu: ok, shall we let Bruce and Eliza organize the retreat?
    Eliza Madrigal: OK
    Aphrodite Macbain: Ok but I cant think before 8AM slt
     
    We finished up by discussing the perennial problem of finding GoCs for the 1AM slots, and considered the possibility of a shift system rather than having dedicated guardian slots for them.  Ah, the dreaded 1AM....
