Guild Meeting 5/31/09

Post by JeffLewis » Wed Jun 03, 2009 1:10 am

SUMMARY OF EDER D'URU GUILDS MEETING HELD SUNDAY, MAY 31, 2009.

Jeff welcomed everyone to the second official weekly meeting and noted that, due to the Memorial Day Holiday, there was a collective forgetfulness to hold one the previous week. Jeff noted that, as always, a chatlog* of the meeting would be sent to the Eder D'Uru Guilds group as well as posted to the OpenUru.org website.

*Formated Chat log can be read below the summary.

ON THE AGENDA
~ Island Updates: the new mall is almost complete and plans are being made to recruit tenants.
~ Policy Discussion & Vote Next Week: Residents were encouraged to develop any ideas they have with regard to policy changes and be prepared to present them at the guild meeting next Sunday. Jeff noted, "All are welcome to present ideas, but the main votes will go to the grandmasters and the current residents of Eder D'Uru." Residents who expect to be absent at the next meeting were encouraged to submit a notecard to Jeff with their comments and suggestions on policies and their position on items (mall & ferry system) which are likely to be submitted for a vote during the next meeting.
The question of whether shop renters would have a vote was asked and the answer was that residents would serve as their tenant's representative, but that sub-leasers would get a vote. (To clarify, in this respect, a "tenant" is being defined as someone who only uses a portion of a resident's parcel and prims and a "sub-leaser" pays the full amount for an entire parcel and its prim allotment.)
~ Land Issues & Policies: Ferry System: The current plan is to provide pre-made docks to all residents at a uniform distance from each parcel and the resident would be responsible for building a connection to the dock. The plan also includes two lines with ferries going in opposite directions around the cavern. Some residents have requested a lower walkway around the cavern on the lake level, but the building team has determined that this would hinder personal watercraft usage. Residents are welcome to build adjoining walkways or shared docks with their neighbors, but it must be anchored to one of their parcels.
~ Parcel Occupancy: One resident, Sharaya Kiergarten recently moved out of her two parcels in the Northeast corner. Ghaelen Winnikow requested to rent those parcels on behalf of the Guild of Healers (which began in MOUL and is a historical D'ni guild) with plans to host events there. Ktahdn Vesuvino (Lord Chaos) and Indigo Kirax (Jane) will be her "roommates" there.
~ Fun and Games: Dagda will soon be scheduling a meeting to develop plans for the first monthly puzzle. * This Thursday is the regular ED bi-weekly playdate which will be a Trivia Challenge. Everyone was encourage to submit notecards to Jeff with questions, answers and a source. * Details will be announced soon for The Great Boxbot Union First Anniversary Celebration. * It was noted that this was the last day of May which meant the last chance to collect the May Sparklie and to take the May Journey. * The June Sparklie is scheduled to appear at midnight and the June Journey promises a blast from the past. * The GoH inquired about securing a venue for a June 13th event and Jeff promised to meet with them after the meeting. *
Once again, it was noted by the European residents that the planned events were being held during times that were not conducive for them to attend. Jeff replied that "We'd like to work with you guys to create more European friendly events too" and Dagda pointed out that "the only thing that makes it hard to schedule things for our European residents during the week is that all the organizers right now are in the US so we'd very much appreciate some organizing help from people in other time zones." So, post-meeting, the council discussed how this issue could be addressed.
The point was made that event times are determined by each events organizer and that all of the current organizers are in US time zones. Therefore, in order for Eder D'Uru to host events during European hours, European residents are needed to become event organizers. Planners Guildmaster Eleri Ethaniel agreed to make an effort to recruit a European Organizer to the Planners Guild and to create an Event Planning Guide notecard which includes Eder D'Uru landmarks to available public venues. The Guild of Builders is available to all residents for assistance in creating events and the Guild of Publicists prepared to publicize them.
Also, post-meeting, the Building team gave Ghaelen a brief tour of some possible venues for Guild of Healer's events and also planned to assist the GoH in building out their parcel during a work date this Wednesday evening.

[2009/05/31 12:13] JeffeJ5005 Lewis: As always, this meeting will be saved into a chatlog for viewing at a later time. Available in both notecard form here, or as a post on our openuru.org forum space
[2009/05/31 12:14] JeffeJ5005 Lewis: If you'd please open your agenda for today's meeting we'll get started
[2009/05/31 12:14] JeffeJ5005 Lewis: If you do not have it, please let us know and one of the grandmasters will send it your way :)
[2009/05/31 12:15] JeffeJ5005 Lewis: Our first category is Island updates. Stuff about the island, what's new. What's coming, and how we're doing on it.
[2009/05/31 12:15] JeffeJ5005 Lewis: Specifically with that, our news is with the mall
[2009/05/31 12:15] JeffeJ5005 Lewis: We have almost completed the building of it, and we're going to start filling it with tennants
[2009/05/31 12:16] JeffeJ5005 Lewis: There will be a vote and discussion upon any policies that will need to be changed NEXT WEEK
[2009/05/31 12:16] JeffeJ5005 Lewis: This is just a reminder to prepare yourselves on ideas.
[2009/05/31 12:16] JeffeJ5005 Lewis: All are welcome to present ideas, but the main votes will go to the grandmasters and the current residents of Eder D'Uru
[2009/05/31 12:17] JeffeJ5005 Lewis: Is there any other Island questions or concerns?
[2009/05/31 12:17] Nalates Urriah: What about those renting shop?
[2009/05/31 12:17] Nalates Urriah: They get some vote?
[2009/05/31 12:17] Tailahr Winnikow makes plans to campaign for her version of the ferry landings. ;p
[2009/05/31 12:17] JeffeJ5005 Lewis: If you have a store above one of our residents. They function as your senator to the meeting
[2009/05/31 12:18] Nalates Urriah: Cool
[2009/05/31 12:18] JeffeJ5005 Lewis: If you are sub-leasing (helping pay for rent on the person's parcel) You do get a vote as well
[2009/05/31 12:19] JeffeJ5005 Lewis: If there are any other issues that need to be heard about the cavern itself or other ages, please let us know at this time.
[2009/05/31 12:19] JeffeJ5005 Lewis: OK, we'll be moving on then.
[2009/05/31 12:19] JeffeJ5005 Lewis: Our next category is land issues and policies
[2009/05/31 12:20] JeffeJ5005 Lewis: Today to present, we are talking about the ferries again.
[2009/05/31 12:20] JeffeJ5005 Lewis: The current plan that we have is to provide pre-made docks to all residents at a set distance from your parcel, and you build the connections to them
[2009/05/31 12:20] Nadnerb Tebaldi nods
[2009/05/31 12:20] JeffeJ5005 Lewis: We hope there will be two lines, going in each direction around the cavern
[2009/05/31 12:21] JeffeJ5005 Lewis: so that you don't have to ride all the way around the cavernt o get to your neighbor
[2009/05/31 12:21] JeffeJ5005 Lewis: Is there any opposition to this arguement?
[2009/05/31 12:21] Svigermor Dharnen: so is the walkway idea gone again
[2009/05/31 12:21] JeffeJ5005 Lewis: The upper walkway will remain
[2009/05/31 12:22] JeffeJ5005 Lewis: there will not be a lower walkway in this plan unless it is built between two neighbors and counts as a prim on their land
[2009/05/31 12:22] JeffeJ5005 Lewis: This is to allow people to drive boats onto their parcel
[2009/05/31 12:22] Tailahr Winnikow: Jeff, I would really like an opportunity to show you my plan.
[2009/05/31 12:22] JeffeJ5005 Lewis: as well as have a water connection, uninterrupted
[2009/05/31 12:22] JeffeJ5005 Lewis: OK Tai, come on up and present your idea to us
[2009/05/31 12:23] Tailahr Winnikow: No, Jeff, not now.
[2009/05/31 12:23] JeffeJ5005 Lewis: This is a public forum for that idea.
[2009/05/31 12:23] JeffeJ5005 Lewis: I do not have the final say on this alone
[2009/05/31 12:23] Tailahr Winnikow: I'm not prepared to demonstrate it and obviously, I haven't been able to adequately communicate the idea verbally.
[2009/05/31 12:23] JeffeJ5005 Lewis: Please be ready to present next week then so that everyone can vote :)
[2009/05/31 12:24] Tailahr Winnikow: I agree with Svig and Genny that we need something at the water level that would be more condusive to meeting with neighbors.
[2009/05/31 12:24] Dagda Sideways: once the ferry is running, would that not be enough?
[2009/05/31 12:24] JeffeJ5005 Lewis: Is there any questions otherwise about the current plan for the ferries?
[2009/05/31 12:25] JeffeJ5005 Lewis: OK, is there any other issues that need to be presented about Land issues or policies?
[2009/05/31 12:27] Eleri Ethaniel: how many empty plots do we have?
[2009/05/31 12:27] JeffeJ5005 Lewis: I believe we don't have any remaining. One moment :)
[2009/05/31 12:28] Tailahr Winnikow: Actually, we have two empty parcels which I believe are about to be taken by Ghaelen Winnikow and the GoH. Would this be a good time to welcome them, Jeff?
[2009/05/31 12:28] JeffeJ5005 Lewis: yes :)
[2009/05/31 12:29] DeAnn Dufaux: GoH..?
[2009/05/31 12:29] Ktahdn Vesuvino: Guild of Healers.
[2009/05/31 12:29] JeffeJ5005 Lewis: Sharaya's former parcels will be taken by them, hopefully as soon as the meeting is all done here I'll have a moment to finish that up with them :) Welcome everyone!
[2009/05/31 12:29] Tailahr Winnikow: Just to be clear, the Guild of Healers was started in MOUL and is not one of the SL guilds here.
[2009/05/31 12:30] Tailahr Winnikow: But, we expect that they will fit in perfectly here at Eder D'Uru.
[2009/05/31 12:30] DeAnn Dufaux: no doubt about that
[2009/05/31 12:30] JeffeJ5005 Lewis: I've heard they're going to be bringing some awesome things in too that I'm really looking forward to :)
[2009/05/31 12:30] Ghaelen Winnikow: Jane and Ktahdn (LC) are here with me, too
[2009/05/31 12:30] Tailahr Winnikow: Yes, in case you missed that, along with Ghaelen are Ktahdn/Lord Chaos and Indigo/Jane.
[2009/05/31 12:31] Tailahr Winnikow: Welcome to the family.
[2009/05/31 12:31] Tailahr Winnikow: Btw, they're all relative newcomers to SL, so please offer your assistance if given the opportunity.
[2009/05/31 12:32] Ghaelen Winnikow: in other words, we get lost easily as of yet
[2009/05/31 12:32] Ktahdn Vesuvino: Yes... if you see one who has fallen to the bottom of the ocean, that's usually me.
[2009/05/31 12:34] Tailahr Winnikow: Well, I don't want to jump the gun here, but I believe that I will soon have some announcements to make about GoH events.
[2009/05/31 12:34] Tailahr Winnikow: So, watch for them.
[2009/05/31 12:34] Ghaelen Winnikow: well, a group of us thought it might be nice to set up an outreach somewhere, and Tai joined the Helaers and at our gathering then told us about you
[2009/05/31 12:35] Ghaelen Winnikow: yes, we have events even without any buildings
[2009/05/31 12:35] Tailahr Winnikow: We'll get you fixed up. No worries there.
[2009/05/31 12:35] Ktahdn Vesuvino: And we'll be holding a kind of open house musical event June 13.
[2009/05/31 12:36] JeffeJ5005 Lewis: Very exciting :)
[2009/05/31 12:36] Tailahr Winnikow: Well, I guess that answers the question about empty parcels. ;)
[2009/05/31 12:36] JeffeJ5005 Lewis: That's the perfect segway into our next category :) Fun and games category

[2009/05/31 12:39] Dagda Sideways: (sorry for the delay in getting that going, RL has reared its ugly head a lot his past 2 weeks)

[2009/05/31 12:41] Eleri Ethaniel: Theme for the trivia?

[2009/05/31 12:42] Dagda Sideways: yes
[2009/05/31 12:42] JeffeJ5005 Lewis: It's a bit late for our European friends
[2009/05/31 12:42] JeffeJ5005 Lewis: The theme is everything
[2009/05/31 12:42] JeffeJ5005 Lewis: If it's a question, and it has an answer

[2009/05/31 12:44] Svigermor Dharnen: raises hand
[2009/05/31 12:44] Dagda Sideways: the only thing that makes it hard to schedule things for our european residents during the week is that all the organizers right now are in the US
[2009/05/31 12:44] JeffeJ5005 Lewis: This coming Saturday, you're invited to the boxbot party celebrating one year anniversary in SL
[2009/05/31 12:44] JeffeJ5005 Lewis: More info to be sent out in notices soon?

[2009/05/31 12:45] JeffeJ5005 Lewis: This means that today is the last day to get the May Sparklie, and will be one of the last days to play the May Mother's Day Journey
[2009/05/31 12:46] JeffeJ5005 Lewis: It also means the June Sparklie will appear at midnight, and I sense another reseng had will be misplaced and dropped as this mysterious ResEng continues to leave us clues as to where the sparklie will be
[2009/05/31 12:47] JeffeJ5005 Lewis: Oh, and the June journey next month is gonna be absolutely awesome. i can't wait :)

[2009/05/31 12:49] JeffeJ5005 Lewis: Is there any other questions or comments about fun and games?
[2009/05/31 12:50] JeffeJ5005 Lewis: That about wraps up this meeting
[2009/05/31 12:50] JeffeJ5005 Lewis: Is there anything else at all that doesn't fit into a category that needs attention?
[2009/05/31 12:50] Ktahdn Vesuvino: Would this be the place to ask about a location for the June 13 Healers event?
[2009/05/31 12:51] JeffeJ5005 Lewis: You can talk to us privately about that :)
[2009/05/31 12:51] Ktahdn Vesuvino: OK.

[2009/05/31 12:52] JeffeJ5005 Lewis: So, just to remember. next week there will be votes on subjects! Specifically, the mall, and the ferry situation
[2009/05/31 12:53] JeffeJ5005 Lewis: If you're a resident, it is highly encouraged that you share your position on the subjects, and any ideas you have at the meeting. If you're unable to attend and place your vote, please do so in a notecard to me and I will cover you at the meeting
[2009/05/31 12:53] JeffeJ5005 Lewis: Other than that, there's lots of events this week, and I hope to see some of, if not all of you at them here.
[2009/05/31 12:54] JeffeJ5005 Lewis: Thanks for attending everyone! I look forward to seeing you next week
[2009/05/31 12:54] JeffeJ5005 Lewis: Meeting Adjourned!

**************************
Post meeting, there was some discussion about how to handle the requests of our European residents to hold events at times which are more condusive to their attending. The point was made that event times are determined by each events organizer and that all of the current organizers are in US time zones. Therefore, in order for Eder D'Uru to host events during European hours, European residents are needed to become event organizers. Planners Guildmaster Eleri Ethaniel will attempt to recruit a European Organizer to the Planners Guild and create an Event Planning Guide which includes Eder D'Uru landmarks to available public venues. The Guild of Builders is available to all residents for assistance in creating events and the Guild of Publicists prepared to publicize them.

Also, post-meeting, the Building team gave Ghaelen a brief tour of some possible venues for Guild of Healer's events and also planned to assist the GoH in building out their parcel during a work date this Wednesday evening.

*Special thanks to Tailahr for formatting and putting this all together!
