    #wikimedia?

    I'm just wondering if it would be better for you to hold these sessions in a separate channel. This would allow you to post the entire log (which could also be summarized - but would allow for users to gain more context) and also eliminate off-topic interruptions since the channel is there for people with any Wikimedia related questions or comments. - Rjd0060

    My only concern is that generally speaking, these conversations should be done in front of as many people as possible - if we throw ourselves a party and nobody comes, what good has it done? If we have the conversation in #wikimedia, we involve people who might not have shows up in another place but have a valid and important voice in the process. And even if they just lurk, they are informed. -- Philippe 17:31, 29 July 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]


    Argh! No office hours on weekends! ;-) --Kim Bruning 19:51, 1 August 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]

    If you think it would get more people there, Kim, I'm happy to sit in on a weekend-one, provided Eugene's okay with it. -- Philippe 20:21, 1 August 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]

    More guidelines

    We could use some IRC guidelines similar to what's on m:Public outreach/Open hour. --Eekim 23:16, 22 July 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]

    Thanks

    I appreciate disclosing logs publicly without any stupid rules of no public logging. Transparency is the best.--Kozuch 18:48, 24 November 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]

    Totally agree. Without a significant reason for confidentiality, work should be as transparent as we can make it. -- Philippe 19:09, 24 November 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]
