This is a summary of discussions since our last report of 30th November 2013, covering messages 12622 to 12866.

The topics we have discussed or are live/pending this month are below:

Task 106 - Freegle UK Central Moderation Review

This task was raised after discussion on Central. We needed to address whether Central provides a consistent, welcoming open forum for honest debate about Freegle and, if not, what could we do to change things to make it better.

After some extensive and constructive debate, we polled on some wording to achieve a light touch but effective moderation process for Central. A message was posted to Central with the suggestion and this has now been adopted by adding to the wiki and sending a message from the Group to the Central Moderation Team to confirm.

Complaint against recent IPS Election Process

We received a complaint from a group owner about the recent election process. The Mailbox took this up as required in our Complaints Procedure and it was discussed no further on the group.

Complaints Procedure Review

This procedure includes the requirement for an annual review, but after a brief discussion this was not done. The default position on documentation reviews in the future should be that a review is welcome to be done at any time it is requested, but that a strict review timetable should not be implemented unless required by legislation etc.

Pending Tasks

The remaining tasks on our list are all related or integral to the change to an IPS, so we have no live topics to address at the moment.

Group ‘Personnel’

The owners of this group are Jacky (Great Yarmouth) and Wendy (Woodley). Jacky is coordinator and stand-in secretary at present. Group membership stands at 78.
