Board Business, October 10th, 2013

Irregular Business

We have a forum, does anyone remember that we have a forum?  Other than the spammers whose contributions I just removed I mean.  Anyway, Lonespark is trying to organize a meeting for New England Slacktivites and families sometime in winter.  Go to the forum thread I just linked to and say something if you are in any way interested in that sort of thing.

Regular Business

There is no submission deadline for articles and open thread suggestions.  Send them any time.

The Submission Deadline for the weekend post is 20:00 (8PM) US Eastern Time Saturday.

Anyone who has submissions for the weekend post should send them in.  Some people wonder if they really deserve to be in the post.  The answer to that is always the same: You do.  So try not to be afraid and do try to send in submissions if you have them.

The sections of the post are as follows:

The Blogaround

Any denizen of the Slacktiverse who has posted an article to their own website since they last submitted to a weekend post is invited, enticed, and cajoled to send a short summary of that article along with its permalink to the group email. That summary and link will be included in the next weekend blogaround. This will help to keep members of our community aware of the many excellent websites hosted by other members.

Remember, this is since you last submitted to a weekend post, not since the last weekend post. For example, if the last time you submitted was a month ago, everything you wrote since then is fair game.

In Case You Missed This

Readers of The Slacktiverse can send short summaries of, and permalinks to, articles that they feel might be of interest to other readers.  These should be sent, as you might expect, to the group email.

Things You Can Do

Anyone who knows of a worthy cause or important petition should send a short description of the petition/cause along with its url to the group email.

Deadlines
Again, none for articles and open thread suggestions, 20:00 (8 PM) US Eastern Time Saturday for the Weekend post.  Also, if there’s a deconstruction you feel should be in the roundup, you can suggest that at any time.
In case the links don’t work: the group email is SlacktiverseAuthors (at) gmail (dot) com.

This can be used as an open thread, if you want.

    does anyone remember that we have a forum?

    As it happens, I checked the forum on the off chance there was something there only a couple hours after Lonespark’s post. (Since there are no current plans for a trip to New England in the making–December or otherwise–I didn’t say anything.)

    We have to meet you someday, it’s a moral imperative.

    This meeting is going to end with someone’s house filled with popcorn, isn’t it?

    What does Froborr know that I don’t?

    Very little, but in this case the key information is the movie Real Genius.
