Curator Group Meeting Report, 11/18/2020
In Attendance: Cars of Fort Langley organized a Google Meetup of the Curator Group on November 18th. In attendance were CoFL, jminer, ITA97, derpwagon, Rusty Vandura (Yours Truly), ClassicDatsunDebate, and ChariotofLove.
Curator Group Size: The vibe was most excellent. We discussed the size and organization of the Curator Group. All agreed that we did not want the group to become overly large. We discussed the inclusion of Kinjaland moderators and that a couple of invitations had been extended.
Authorship: How long does a new member remain in the gray as in Kinjaland? We decided that new members to the board would have authorship automatically -- no more posting or replying in the gray -- but that the amount of content new members could post would be limited initially.
Style Guide: We agreed to adopt the DRAFT Style Guide / Etiquette Guide in in its current, organic form, welcoming feedback and suggestions from the community.
Signature Length: We discussed signatures and agreed that many were very lengthy and were crowding the board. We agreed to set a signature limit at 75 characters.
Editing Time: Time allowed to edit a reply is set to one hour, but a reply can be deleted at any point later on.
Content Showcase: We agreed upon a need for more Landing Page showcase content, including a Best Of section and we decided that a more robust bridge between Hyphenated Oppo and DriveTribe was something to work toward.
Finances: jminer reported that the monthly costs associated with running the site are around $150 per month and likely to rise a little bit with time. Donations to the site are adequate to cover this cost for the foreseeable future. The wife of one of the group members is going to organize an LLC for Hyphenated Oppo.
Also Finances: Currently on the hyphenated main page, the Donate button is at the bottom of an infinite scroll (for those with infinite scroll turned on - it's fine for those who have the site set to use 'pages'). jminer will relocate that. Also, ClassicDatsunDebate is working on a fresh Donate/Paypal logo button.
Merchandise: Group member derpwagon runs an online web store and has created a polo and a t-shirt with the old school Oppo logo. Oppo earns $6 on each shirt sold. Ladies’ cuts available.
