of rules and regulations people can abide by. Though, it seems at odds<br>
with the openness of the general hackerspace mentality.<br>
As an organization we do not want to be dictating rules at every turn,<br>
but over the year Buffalo Lab has been operating.. questions about<br>
rules and what is allowed has come up repeatedly. We have resorted to<br>
signs around the space stating DO and DON&#39;T but that can&#39;t continue<br>
What have other hackerspaces done in regards to disseminating rules to<br>
members? Is it generally on a case by case basis, or do other<br>
hackerspaces have a set of rules that all members are aware of.<br>
Lastly, enforcing rules seems to be the hardest part of all. Partly<br>
because of timing, rule enforcers cannot be at the space 24/7 and not<br>
all members are comfortable confronting people. But also how is<br>
fairness handled? Do people use a 3-strike rule or zero-tolerance<br>
I know I asked a lot of questions, and some might be answered by<br>
looking at another space&#39;s rules, policies or aup. I quickly scanned<br>
through the websites of various hackerspaces and did not find many or<br>
any public membership agreements to speak of. So if anyone does have<br>
one, that would be a huge help.<br>
Thanks, Matt<br>
