Issues to Be Raised at the Next Board Meeting
Time: Wednesday October 1st at 1:15am UTC (Tuesday September 30th at 9:15pm EDT)
Place: irc.sylnt.us:6667/6697#staff (Webchat)
Chair: To Be Determined
- Issue 1: Officer nominations.
- Issue 2: Follow-up on SoylentNews Policy Document - Updates:
At the September 3, 2014 Board Meeting, there was discussion about site Privacy, Copyright, and DMCA policies.
Suggest these be reviewed and agreed upon prior to applying to our site(s). (SoylentNews.org, dev.Soylentnews.org, etc., IRC, Wiki, TWiki, other?)
- Issue 3: We should buy quickbooks for accounting (and abandon GNU cash as this was always meant to be an interim measure)
- Issue 4: How much copyright content may be legally reproduced in a story summary? Some summaries contain copypasta of copyright material from commercial news sites. Do we need a scripty to scan and flag any summary, comment, journal or wiki article that reproduces more than a certain percentage of linked content? Something like MIN(10%,100 words) seems pretty safe. There could be a whitelist of sites (such as Wikipedia) that could be excluded from scanning. This is possibly not a board-level issue but I'm not sure exactly who/where to direct due to fairly broad scope.
