1. Don’t let the public use your space without restrictions or rules.

2. Have a governance structure that can deal with problems (often coming from #1) in such a way that they don’t repeat.

3. Give members some value for being members and financially supporting the space.

4. Create a safe space for members.

5. When folks (inevitably) cause problems, have a *working* mechanism in place to resolve these problems so they don’t repeat over and over again.

organisation's inability to adapt to growth, changes, and control.

Any specific examples of these sorts of issues, along with why they weren't able to adapt, regardless of what space it happened to?
