1] Sorry to rain on our parade so soon but we need to hold our first AGM - and issues to discuss include:
a] Automatic spill of all positions and election of new administrators in the possible categories:
[i] Keeper of the Codes [blogrolls and banners together]
[ii] Resident Techie
[iii] Birthdays Officer
[iv] Pageflakes Profiles Coordinator [think this is obvious]
[v] General Rouseabout [founding grandfather - this is almost obvious]
[vi] Anything else you can think of.
b] Creation of three blogrolls, kept by the keeper of the rolls and categories of membership:
[i] Provisional [new members awaiting membership approval - usually a formality]
[ii] Current membership
[iii] Resting roll [the Istanbultories of the world].
c] Formulation of the policy on membership. This is up for discussion because sufficient members e-mailed me about it and want it discussed:
[i] Elimination or blocking of undesirables as a policy or not
[ii] Ejection of members [specific person mentioned] - discussion only at this point.
[iii] How to stop us from becoming unwieldy
[iv] How to recognize "friends of BP" who are not actually members but stay close to us. This is especially important now because of people like Bag who had a lot to do with us during the awards, plus many others.
2] I suggest we now take suggestions from all of you via e-mail to either me or in comments on this post on any or all of these matters. Our fallback position is that the current admins will do it all themselves but it's better we include your ideas.
Therefore, would you either e-mail or comment until Sunday, July 8th on any or all of the above issues or any others you may consider need discussion. Then the current admins will draw up and agenda.
