[hackerspaces] How do you define quorum for your space?

We (FamiLAB) created a member-only RFC forum - this allows members time to
learn, research, think, provide arguments, etc. without the pressure of
"vote on the spot" which was easily dominated by those who could be there
on meeting night and then out talk others (I'm guilty of this). Often,
individuals are encouraged to "just do it", and it rarely turns into a
trollfest - but it does happen.

Putting a deadline for feedback also helps bring things to a close.

The forum concept is also self-documenting, and several times I've just
pointed people back to an old RFC so they can quickly understand the last
time it came up which was often prior to them joining the group.
